Editorial: The Gilded Now

The first Gilded Age was a time of technological, social and cultural transition which only came to its close with the crisis of WWI and the devastation of the Great Depression. Twain is oftentimes (probably mis-) attributed with saying that history doesn’t repeat itself, but it definitely rhymes.

Letter: 2-step-verification for email access is classist

Until the University is prepared to provide and fund texting plans to all students, the idea of requiring us to have phones on hand to use even library computers to check our emails is unreasonable and classist.

Flyleaf Bookstore located at 752 Martin Luther King Jr Blvd, Chapel Hill, NC 27514. 

Column: Bookshop cat, where you at? I miss you.

Without The Bookshop's quirky, convenient offerings, the immediate Chapel Hill area (for students without transportation) has become a literary desert of sorts. We need a good, local, independent bookstore. These kinds of bookstores are good for all aspects of a literary community: author, consumer and larger town or community — and they imbue towns like Chapel Hill with literary character.

Letter: Lessons from Palestine on Police Militarization

SJP was particularly interested in attending this specific session when we heard of a resolution presented by the Durham2Palestine coalition, which demanded that Durham City Council immediately adopt a resolution halting any police exchanges or police trainings with Israel. The public had the chance to hear from both proponents and opponents of the resolution.

Column: A shadow over Ashur

The American government doesn’t care about the Syrian people — if it did, it would be implementing programs to help refugees instead of bombing their home country.

Farewell Column: Kiana Cole

 I plan to tell stories for the rest of my life, just like I’ve done at The Daily Tar Heel for the last four years.

Editorial: Thank you, CUAB

CUAB activities can be hit-or-miss. But this year, the programs offered have been hitting what students want right on the nail.
