The Political Punk: Riffs And Referendum—The Influence Of Classic Punk On Brexit

On Jan. 31, Britain formally left the European Union. The decision to split after the 2016 referendum has been rife with controversy with gritty fights in Parliament, explosive elections, and growing generational and class gaps. The wrath of Brexit has made the past four years seem like ages. Before delving into this particular event, I...

On Being A Childhood Reader

When students leave for college, they often bring something to remind them of home like a favorite childhood toy, a photo album, or a souvenir from a family vacation. For me, it was half a dozen of my favorite books stuffed into a backpack, ranging from mandatory novels for school to the stories I cherished...

Carrying On: Deadheads To Doctors

“Psychedelics are to the study of the mind what the microscope is to biology and the telescope is to astronomy,” transpersonal psychology pioneer Dr. Stanislav Grof said. A substantial contingent of psychologists and scientific researchers, Grof included, believe there are unplumbed depths to the potential of psychedelic-assisted treatment, specifically MDMA (“ecstasy” or “molly”), psilocybin (found...

Pop goes the weasel

Bush’s transformation of his faith-based social service initiative from campaign promise to reality is far from a political jack-in-the-box. It is not surprising that the man who nominated John Ashcroft?who engendered charitable choice with the 1996 Welfare Reform Act?would maintain his commitment to funneling federal dollars to religious organizations. Simply because Bush’s plan should not shock Americans does not mean, however, that it should not frighten them.

Hi, my name is Rachel, and I am an addict. I guess it all started years ago when my family purchased a computer featuring something new, something exciting, something revolutionary … Windows Version 3.0. Sure, Microsoft Word came in handy and the Calculator was tr?s convenient, but they were nothing compared to what was awaiting…

A bureaucratic miscommunication, a confusing ballot and now, a vote under a cloud. Sure, that is a typical November in Palm Beach County, but unless questions are answered about last Friday’s student activities funding referendum, it could also describe a February in Georgetown. What went wrong? Who is to blame? What should this mean to the fate of a proposal slated to go before the Board of the Directors in less than a month?

Last week a Georgetown student was robbed at gunpoint just three blocks off-campus at 9:30 p.m. While this is an extremely alarming crime, it also brings into question what steps the University is taking to protect students’ safety, especially in regard to the SafeRides service.

From a biological standpoint, interracial marriages actually strengthen the human gene pool. Anthropologically speaking, interracial dating is a process of acculturation: adapting to another person’s cultural values while retaining your own. In other words, the easiest way to expand your cultural horizons is to date someone from another culture. Personally, I find that interracial dating…

After the last time I wrote, one of my professors described my article as having one of the “eternal themes of youth.” My friends give me a hard time because I have yet to write anything without mentioning my ex-girlfriend Annie. To please my professor and to satisfy my friends, I thought about writing how…

Thanks to Georgetown … I have a brand new credit card from MBNA. It looks pretty nice; it has a picture of Georgetown, the Visa logo and most of my name. Even the credit limit seems nice. Thanks to Georgetown … MBNA knows all sorts of things about me that I didn’t tell them. (I’m…

Act locally (vote!)

We urge the student body to show their strong support for the student activities funding referendum that will be voted on this Friday. One of the glaring weaknesses of Georgetown University is its funding of student life. While the university is comprised of 6,200 undergraduate students, the equivalent of 12 students’ total cost to attend…

The findings issued by a panel of 150 scientists from 99 nations at a U.N. conference on global warming in Shanghai last week should strike fear into the heart of every human on the planet. The scientists unanimously predicted that the average temperature of the Earth could rise by as much as 10.4 degrees over…
