Health care insurance companies are excited that U.S. Rep. Dave Camp, R-Midland, and his Republican colleagues voted to repeal the new Health Care law. This law tells insurance companies that they cannot deny coverage for children with pre-existing conditions, and they cannot impose lifetime limits on coverage. They also have to allow adult children to stay on their parents’ health plans up to age 26, and Medicare recipients can have a number of preventive and well-care services without being charged a deductible, co-pay or coinsurance.
I’m sure you would agree with me that CMU is a very fine institution. I certainly pride the alumnus status that awaits me in May. But to further Central’s vision as a nationally prominent university, I believe it needs to take a statewide initiative to implement a budgeting class for all freshman students.
Recent attention to issues involving student ratings of faculty, such as CMU’s national ranking based on ratemyprofessor.com and whether students should have easy access to SOS scores, focuses attention on the validity of such ratings when used as indicators of teaching effectiveness.
At the crux of the issue is whether evidence supports the inference that college students learn more in classes where faculty members receive higher ratings. Unfortunately, research suggests they do not.
I continue to hear the same old rhetoric from the Tea Party and the Republicans: "We need to take back our country."
My question is, from who? Thirty years of Reaganomics have severely dismantled labor in this country. I have a novel idea, let's take it back from corporate interest and the lobbyists!
A letter from Central Michigan University basketball coach Ernie Zeigler
In response to the tragic shooting in Arizona, several news sources like the New York Times, Time magazine and our very own CM Life have published articles that put political rhetoric on trial.
These articles cite an ad produced by Sarah Palin’s campaign that places a number of U.S. representatives in crosshairs. Political discourse like this, the argument goes, incites a culture of fear and violence.
It’s that time of the year when the library grows crowded, caffeine consumption is at an all-time high, and North Face jackets no longer keep you warm while walking to class.\Yes, it’s that time of the year when we start to reflect upon the semester and wonder: where did the time go?
As I picked up a fresh copy of Central Michigan Life today, I scanned the sections like I usually do before I sit down to read the horrors and the triumphs of campus this week. (Ok, I was looking for the crossword, too.) Regardless, I was struck by the Senior Art student profile on Arik Anderson.
First of all, I would like to thank all the voters of District 5 who voted for me this pass election day. I would also like to thank Anne Swift for bearing with me during the long, long campaign. I would also like to thank those generous folks who contributed to my campaign sometimes even twice.
“Do you ever feel like a plastic bag, drifting through the wind, wanting to start again?”
Katy Perry’s metaphor in her new single “Fireworks” may be catchy but it demonstrates a problem that’s occurring all over the country, including Central’s campus: plastic bags are everywhere.
As I write this, just under a week has passed since Election Day and just as the campaign was, the days since last Tuesday have been a whirlwind adventure.
It has recently come to my attention that CMU is somewhat hypocritical about how “green” they really are going. For this school year, CMU has emphasized the importance of recycling by placing countless recycling receptacles all over campus, as well has giving students a limit to how much they can print, and having water-conserving toilets in the bathrooms. But CMU’s recent decision to print thousands of copies of the student directory concerns me.
On Wednesday, I was having a pretty bad morning. I had bombed a physics test that I had been certain I did well on, and was officially failing a class for the first time.
After class, I went into the main floor bathroom of the Dow building to fix my hair in the mirror.
I admit I was a little shocked when I found out about professor Tim Boudreau’s plan to bring leaders of Westboro Baptist Church to CMU.
Universities are places where ideas should be discussed and challenged, and perhaps this is an opportunity to educate.
Regarding the Oct. 25 article in Central Michigan Life by Carisa Seltz on the Events Center, I would like to provide a response on behalf of SmithGroup and benefit your readers with a fuller understanding of the project and its complexities.
As a township official, I have come to have profound respect for the wisdom and judgment of the Michigan Township Association and when I saw that the MTA had endorsed Toni Sessoms in the 99th District Michigan House race, that respect was reinforced.
You are right to point out, as you do in (the Monday, Oct. 18) editorial, that the effect of partisan politics has been a problem for state government.
What you seem to miss, however, is a broader problem that can only be corrected by a constitutional convention. Since 1992, there has been a growing and systemic lack of leadership, statesmanship and institutional memory in Michigan’s Legislature.
Last month was very difficult for the LGBT community and our allies with national attention being brought to the suicides of young LGBT individuals Earic Mohat, of New York; Seth Walsh, of California; Asher Brown, of Texas; Tyler Clementi, of New Jersey; Justin Aaberg, of Minnesota; Billy Lucas, of Indiana; and Raymond Chase, of Rhode Island.
Green energy is not the only sustainability issue at Central Michigan University that demands the attention of institutional leadership.
Though it is a problem often overlooked by the campus populace, CMU’s current land management operations may not be a friend of the environment — or even of humans.
As one of Sarina’s professors, I was deeply saddened to hear the news of her death. All of us in ENG 175 will miss her intelligence, ready smile and contributions in class.
