The real problem with attendance at athletic events

Just do it, Obama

Justice Antonin Scalia’s death was nearly immediately politicized. President Obama has the right and duty to nominate a qualified, just person to the Supreme Court. While the Supreme Court returned to the bench this past Monday, Scalia’s unexpected passing last week not only leaves an even number of justices, but also leaves several cases undone and up […]

Abilene pet owners neglect animal care in strange ways

Then why is it Abilene pet owners, animal caretakers, and people in general are neglecting their duty […]

What is Zika and how did we get here

The Zika virus seems to be a case of déjà vu for many. We all remember hearing about the Ebola virus on the other side of the world. Many of us at ACU also remember the powerful, terrifying experience alumnus Dr. Kent Brantly recounted in the fall of 2014. Just like Ebola, we in America […]

Why the classics still matter

Yes, movies with zombies and kisses in the rain are fun to watch. But where do these cheesy, outrageous, seemingly bizarre plots come from? We’ve all had to take some form of a history or English class, but that only scratches the surface. Today’s economic policies, movies, medicine, and even technology are all firmly rooted […]
