Two weeks ago I wrote in my column about lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender pride events and LGBT organizations as well as protection laws and a multitude of other issues. Since then, the response toward my opinion on those issues has been mixed, with much opposition coming from many who deal with the reality of [...]

Bei Bei Shuai, a Chinese immigrant from Shanghai, was charged March 14, 2011, with the murder of her daughter, Angel, by Marion County, Ind. According to the Marion County Sheriff’s Office report, Shuai was eight months pregnant when she attempted suicide Dec. 23, 2010, by consuming rat poison. Investigators discovered that she attempted suicide because [...]
It’s been a long time coming for opponents of the proposed Keystone XL Pipeline — public comments, rallies of over 50,000 people in D.C., petitions from all corners of the globe, and 72-year-old women U-locking their necks to pipeline equipment. The proposed pipeline (with various possible routes) will be used for transporting tar sands from [...]
There is no doubt that Philadelphia is an exciting setting for your four or five years of college. Philly is bursting with culture, history and opportunities that other college students aren’t lucky enough to have. Although it’s mesmerizing to gaze at the Philly skyline, there is nothing quite like eating at a French cafe near [...]
In last week’s issue of The Triangle, Aaron Strauss wrote a piece in response to the biweekly Queerview column. In this column, he addressed the Catholic Church’s opinion and teaching in regard to the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community. Strauss, as a Catholic, follows those teachings but also agreed with Queerview author Vaughn Shirey [...]
I love sports. Trust me, they are the light of my life. Some of my most cherished memories involve sports, both as a fan and as an “athlete.” I am currently the assistant sports editor here at The Triangle, and I am set to graduate with a degree in sport management next March. Sports do [...]
I bought seven brands of bottled water yesterday. I got the good stuff, waters from around the world. I am fascinated by regional-specific goods, especially foods. When these products come directly from the earth, I am even more interested. Location-specific waters, which most of these are, are luxury items for sure. Some of these waters [...]
I’m a devout Catholic, and I fully accept and support all of the Catholic Church’s teachings on social issues that divide the world today. Nevertheless, I have enjoyed reading the first two editions of Vaughn Shirey’s Queerview column in The Triangle despite our fundamental disagreements on lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender rights. It’s encouraging to [...]
Hundreds, even thousands, of Drexel seniors will graduate in just over a month, a day that’s long been a distant dream to them as they endured lagging lectures and seemingly never-ending final days of co-op. But their moment is coming, and it’s one that many of them have spent five years working toward. We congratulate [...]
One of the world’s leading sustainability ﬁgures was on Drexel’s campus last month in the ﬁrst event hosted by Drexel Smart House in nearly a year. The presenter, David Orr, is a world-traveling, future-thinking, down-to-earth gentleman who in the 1980s saw the need for American universities to become centers for sustainable practices. His visit with [...]
“Why sports? What’s so good about a few dudes and a ball? Don’t you have better things to do?” Questions such as these have been leveled at me for years. Every time, I roll my eyes, smile to myself and shake my head because the silly person asking any of these questions just does not [...]
Pride extremism isn’t something that you encounter every day, but it’s out there and ready to strike at any moment. Choosing to abstain from pride events was not an easy personal decision, but it came with a good amount of thought. For one, most media portrayal of pride events only serves to further propagate the [...]
It houses the Philadelphia Parking Authority, the Philadelphia City Archives and the offices of some contractor, but we know it best as the entrance to Drexel’s “Garden Level” classrooms: 3101 Market St. It’s a monstrosity and should be demolished as soon as possible to make way for new and better developments. Sure, we all hate [...]
A recent report estimated that 260,000 people died in a 2011 famine in Somalia. Many blame the high death toll (previously estimated between 50,000 and 100,000 people) on the slow aid response from wealthy Western nations. This report, which has yet to be corroborated by agencies like UNICEF and the World Health Organization, claims that [...]
We know it’s wistful to imagine you reading this article straight out of our 16-page broadsheet newspaper, sitting in a leather chair by the fire. Realistically, we know you’re more likely reading it on our website, perhaps on your smartphone or tablet. Maybe you followed a link we featured on one of our social media [...]
Imagine you’re in your hometown hanging with your friends and family. The sky is blue, and the temperature is just right. Suddenly, you find yourself running for your life. An infinitely large and porous blanket is nipping at your heels and destroying everything: your house, plants, animals, your friends’ houses, your friends, and finally you [...]
The decision of which university to transfer into involved many more factors than the decision of which one to dive into directly from high school. I geared my focus toward an institution that proved it could foresee America’s future developments to lift my career as well as set the standard for sustainable behavior in higher [...]
After all these years, is it still worth it? Our ancestors began a great political experiment: commoners who rule themselves. They believed that the volatile masses have the right to think what they want and say what they think. These unconventional freedoms and powers are rightfully celebrated because they are, more than anything else, what [...]
It takes less than 10 seconds to report a murder on the news — a life completely obliterated. But what about all the time it takes to create and sustain the life that was just eliminated? How many meals did Charlotte Bacon’s parents prepare for her? How many times did they take her to the [...]
No. North Korea will not strike South Korea first under rational circumstances because the North Korean military has fatal weak points, even when compared to the South Korean military. The North Korean military force has a clear superiority in numbers against the South Korean military. According to the Defense Report of National Intelligence Service of [...]
