…I like the fact that it actually went beyond simply thinking about how to reduce the campus’ release of greenhouse gases. It talked about creating a culture of sustainability, promoting research and teaching around carbon neutrality and sustainability, and it had a very powerful focus on environmental justice. What I’ve been doing in the week since the report went final, and for the next several weeks, is working with various ...…

…The Michigan Daily — michigandaily.com Arts 6 — Wednesday, April 21, 2021 When you think of the word indie, what typically comes to mind? Is it a youthful aesthetic? Is it a culture defined by being ahead of the curve? Or is it maybe just a new sound? Whatever the interpretation is, it’s hard to argue that Animal Collective doesn’t embody it in some way. Yes, I know. An artist retrospective on Animal Collective? How original. How...…

…If you asked a rap fan in 2010 who their favorite female rapper was, chances are that list would begin and end at “Nicki Minaj.” While the 90s and early 2000s brought lots of talent to the table for female rap with trailblazers like Lil’ Kim and Missy Elliot, the decline of their careers in mainstream rap left a hole in the industry that only Minaj seemed to be able to fill. However, in recent years, several new female rappers have em...…

…G raduation looms on the horizon. For every college student, the idea of gradu- ating college holds a bittersweet flavor, caught between the satisfaction of accomplish- ment and the sadness of goodbyes. For some, it holds more of one than the other. It is sometimes hard to tell which is stronger. Sometimes, the bitterness wins. At 21 years old, I’ve been a college student for five years and have been at the University of Michigan f...…

…R ecently I time-traveled 100 years in the past. I didn’t go to a historical house to find out what life was like on the frontier, I didn’t churn my own butter or read the Farmers’ Almanac by candlelight, but I did witness an internal party primary for New Mexico’s 1st Congressional District. This arcane process was the norm prior to the early 20th century, with party insiders — or in this case, members of the State Central Commi...…
