The Environmental Protection Agency is currently lifting limits on lead paint and asbestos. And, despite the allure of America’s favorite murderous foam, these new policies are potentially deadly for people in the South Bronx and other historically redlined neighborhoods.
Do not read this if you intend on seeing the movie. But don’t see it…
If you’re a fan of bald eagles, whales, or Richard Nixon then you’re probably already fairly familiar with the Endangered Species Act. But did you know that over two dozen different rollbacks to the Act have been proposed in just the past two weeks?
The term “safe space”, is often thrown around by both liberals and conservatives in their political diatribes. Safe spaces are often pictured as areas were people can escape our harsh political climate, or where whiny college students go to complain. In this case, a safe space is quite apt to describe my experience playing Blizzard Entertainment’s MMORPG (Massively Multiplayer Online Role-Playing Game for you non nerds), “World of Warcraft”, or WoW, for short.

Like most sequels, Sicario: Day of the Soldado expands the original’s scope and is also not as good as the original. The sequel no longer has Emily Blunt as its lead, nor does it have Denis Villeneuve as its director, each loss to the detriment of the film. In the sequel, Benicio del Toro and Josh Brolin reprise their roles and make an effective and entertaining duo, but without Blunt there is something missing. Her character was the first film’s moral compass, knowing right from wrong and caring about the distinction. Brolin and del Toro’s characters don’t have a similar sense of morality, or at least not ones that align with legality.
At the end of the Supreme Court’s current session, longtime Associate Justice Anthony Kennedy announced his retirement from the nation’s highest court. Kennedy was appointed during the Reagan administration. The magnitude of this retirement cannot be understated. CNN’s senior legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin tweeted out after the announcement that “abortion will be illegal in twenty states in 18 months.”
Whenever these two collaborate, it is a hit. Nicki Minaj and Ariana Grande are an unstoppable duo when it comes to very dance-y tunes. “Bed” does not disappoint. It has a sultry, yet playful sound. It is the perfect song to add to all of your summer playlists.
As someone who wanted to start their summer off productively, I decided to binge-watch all nine seasons of The Office (slightly less if you consider the fact that seasons 1 and 4 were less than 20 episodes long). For those of you somehow not familiar with the show (in which case, stop reading and start watching),was a show on NBC that aired from 2005 to 2013, spanning 201 episodes in all. It stars such comedians as Steve Carrell, Ed Helms, Rainn Wilson, and Jenna Fischer and takes on the gutsy task of creating comedy out of the mundane and soulless office environment that most middle-class Americans are familiar with.
Imagine you’re a refugee, or an immigrant, living in the United States. You work hard every day, delivering food so that you can make enough money to provide for your family, something I think most Americans can relate to. One day, you get a call to deliver food to a place you’ve gone to many times before. When you arrive however, they ask to see I.D. You can’t provide what they are asking for , you’re arrested.
