Another day, another potential riot at the University of California, Berkeley. In just a few short months the university has been nearly engulfed in violent riots multiple times.

Technology is in the palm of our hands, so how are we wrapped around its finger? Advancements in technology can be widely regarded as a positive thing.

To paraphrase Albert Einstein, insanity can be defined by doing the same thing over and over, and expecting a different result. Think about this statement in terms of everyday life, and how this quote can be applied to it. What are some things that can be categorized by constant repetition? Say a person has an […]

When the dark thoughts take control, and frustration seems like an understatement, it’s imperative to know there are others out there who understand these ailments of the mind. Most people can recall a length of time when they’ve felt depressed, but in many instances these bouts with depression are relatively short lived. However, there are […]

I expected a backlash of […]

It is not a new phenomenon for people to protest what they believe to be un- just. The concept of speaking out against a tyrannical government is how the United States was born. However, I believe something vital has been lost in the art of protesting: grace. When reality starts to clash with morality, people […]
Being extraordinary is nothing to be ashamed of, and it’s nothing to shame people for. When I was a kid, my parents told me that being myself is the best thing to be. They told me that everybody is unique, and to be proud of what makes up who I am. I believe this to […]

Sticks and stones may break my bones, but at least they’ll know I was offended. Trends can be scary. Trends can make people spend their money, invest their time or even coerce somebody to harass others for failing to keep up with what is current. To me, there is a fine line between iconic and […]

What does it mean to be inspired? And why can inspiration be so difficult to find sometimes? Inspiration starts with the individual. It’s a choice. Being inspired isn’t a luxury, it’s a responsibility. It’s something that needs to be fostered and cultivated. When someone allows themselves to be inspired, they will be inspired.

Fathers take over the University of Idaho during Dads’ Weekend, and some have traveled farther than others. But one father has been here for a while — the president of the university. Chuck Staben began his work as the president of UI two-and-a-half years ago, but this is far from his first experience working in […]
