Chris Adami: Remembering Stephen Hawking

March 15, 2018 - 4:35pm
The passing of the great physicist Stephen Hawking yesterday at the age of 76 fills me with sadness for many different reasons. On the one hand, it was inspiring to witness that, seemingly, the power of will and intellect can hold such a serious illness at bay for so long. On the other hand, I am also sad that I never got to talk to him, and perhaps explain to him my take on his great body of work.

Challenge the status quo

March 14, 2018 - 5:46pm
Back when I was 10 years old, I didn't really know what it meant to be an activist. All I knew is that I thought there were unfair rules on the safety patrol. There were all sorts of crosswalk locations that students on the patrol could be assigned - my favorite was literally in front of my house so my mom could run out a poncho if a downpour started. There were a few other assigned duties, like raising and lowering the flag. Safeties were used to watch the kindergarteners before the bell and raise and lower the wooden horses in circular drive in front for buses and teachers. That's where the unfairness came in. There had always been a rule that only girls could watch the kids and only boys could manage the horses. I have no idea who set this rule, just that I, and my friends, thought it was completely unfair. At the time, I'm sure I didn't know what "sexist" meant, but clearly it was a rule based in gender stereotypes.

Liam Gonzalez: More than a WISH, an opportunity of a lifetime

March 14, 2018 - 2:57pm
One of the most important lessons I've learned at MSU is that opportunity is hidden in two places. The first place is behind a door that takes years of hard work and studying to open. The second place, to put it bluntly, is everywhere you don't think to look.
