EPA Leadership Distorts Climate Reality

November 19, 2017 Shae Albertson 2

Among multiple shortcomings, the Trump Administration’s approach to climate policy deserves particular scrutiny. Though many Americans are aware of President Trump’s withdrawal from the United Nations Paris Climate Accord, many are left unaware of the facts about changes in the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

November 8, 2017 Elizabeth Berry 0

Every Friday at Crozier-Williams, students can get free and fresh produce at the Sprout Garden Farmers’ Market. In passing, I have seen baskets filled with tomatoes and peppers, but this past Friday I stopped by to have a closer look at what the market was offering. On this particular day, students could buy a variety of herbs, arugula, and beets, all of which were grown on campus in the Sprout Garden behind Cro. As there is no other food market on campus for students who want fresh food, the Sprout Garden Farmers’ Market offers students access to produce.

Petty’s music was more than a classic-rock sound; it was a characterizing element of the American lifestyle.

While the rise of the term “opioid epidemic” certainly has something to do with the highly-publicized and competitive 2016 election rhetoric, it isn’t fake news. According to a study done by Michael’s House Treatment Center, drug overdoses now represent the leading cause of accidental death in the United States—higher than the number of people killed in car crashes. Over a quarter of those deaths were due to heroin or other opioids, and nearly a quarter of all people in the country who have a substance abuse problem are addicted to opiates—more than alcohol, cocaine, or benzodiazepines. This is a 300% increase from 2010.
