February 18, 2017
Filed under Dave Owen, Opinion

North Dakota legislators in the house have continued this cycle to be at odds with the North Dakota state senate, oftentimes passing laws which narrowly failed in the Senate by spectacular margins in the house. This week, yet another such law passed 77-12. This law was long heralded by the political ... Read more »

I wrote a piece in the news section last week about the nomination of Neil Gorsuch by President Trump. I considered it one of the most influential factors when it comes to America’s future. To my disappointment, the article didn’t seem to attract as many people as I thought it would. The problem... Read more »

On Feb. 7, I had the pleasure of sitting in one of Winnipeg’s nicest theaters for one of the best rock shows to come through the city in a while. The two bands that played were Frank Turner and The Sleeping Souls and The Arkells. The concert hall stage was set up with all of Frank Turner’s gear, inc... Read more »

Modest proposal for Trump

Filed under jacob notermann, Opinion

Donald J. Trump is the best at handling the media. Fantastic. He is exactly what this desperate country needs in order to feel safe again. For years, the corrupt media has been working with lazy politicians, who have been all talk and no action, creating fake news about their opponents. This has not, a... Read more »

Executive orders are the road to tyranny

Dave Owen, Staff Writer
February 14, 2017
Filed under Dave Owen, Opinion

As I browse social media and the news, I have been seeing many people talk with great confusion about what constitutes an executive order, the constitutionality of such orders and what powers if any the court has to strike down such an order. In fact, the issue is so  confusing that both sides have pre... Read more »

Holding your tongue on Facebook

Emily Gibbens, Opinion Editor

Filed under Emily Gibbens, Opinion

Many people my age say Facebook is outdated or it’s for “old people,” but I use Facebook as a tool for many things every day. I’m able to look at what my family and old friends are up to, I share my articles for everyone back home to read and I share things that I think are funny, like memes... Read more »

February 10, 2017
Filed under Elizabeth Fequiere, Opinion

Statistics have shown that too many students spend tens of thousands of dollars to attend college and graduate with degrees in the humanities, fine arts or similar areas that they have difficulty finding jobs in. There are fewer and fewer students pursuing degrees in STEM (science, technology, engineering... Read more »

State of Education

Dave Owen, Staff Writer
February 10, 2017
Filed under Dave Owen, Opinion

With recent confirmation of Betsy DeVos leading President Trump’s Department of Education, it appears liberals, conservatives and libertarians need to have a discussion on the school choice issue. They need a discussion that isn’t steeped in rhetoric or wild accusations, but rather one looking at... Read more »

Filed under Emily Gibbens, Opinion, Showcase

Last Friday was free movie night for UND students. All of the movies I wanted to see were exempt from the free movie ticket, so I opted to watch “Patriots Day” even though I didn’t really know what it was about. After over two hours, a bucket of popcorn and a lot of tears, I was certain it was... Read more »

Imagine traveling all the way to Washington, D.C. to witness history, only to be blocked out of the entrance by angry people yelling at you. Or trying to listen to a speech made by the new president, but all you can hear are screeching whistles being blown as a distraction. What if you were a limousine d... Read more »

On Jan. 31, I had the pleasure of making the trek up to Winnipeg to the 110 year-old Burton Cummings Theater to see one of my favorite bands, Hollerado, and a band new to me, The Sam Roberts Band. Upon walking into the theater, we found the merch table of Hollerado. We were surprisingly greeted by N... Read more »

It is the beginning of February, and I know I’m not the only one who is excited for March. Two words: Spring break. Spring break is many people’s favorite time of year, especially for a warm getaway from our frigid state.
