It could happen to anyone. Male, female. Any race. Any age. Sexual assault is a very real problem.
Baylor is ready to handle sexual assault cases. In 2011, the U.S. Department of Education Office for Civil Rights released its Dear Colleague Letter and it encouraged universities to actively be aware of Title IX issues.
Gosh, I hate finals, but who likes them?
As the last couple days of classes end, Baylor students near the dreaded finals period. It seems that I always get stuck with a final on the last day of finals, so I watch as the campus slowly becomes a ghost town. It is the loneliest feeling in the world waking up on that last gray, cold morning and driving to that last final.
Thanksgiving break is a treasured time for many students relax and recuperate with their families after a long semester. But for some, it is also a time of worrying about how they are going to get home, and even get to see their families. These concerns may not be on the radar of every Baylor student, but they are especially important for those of us who are not from Texas and have a long way to travel home.
I wanted to let you know how impressed I was with the way the Lariat covered the events that occurred 50 years ago when President Kennedy was in Texas. That was a significant coming-of-age occurrence for the Lariat staff at that time.
My impression is that the current Lariat staff keeps the tradition of excellence alive. I know the Lariat has won numerous state-wide awards.
A controversy is brewing in the White House and it has nothing to do with partisan politics. Credentialed photographers who are paid to cover the events of the White House are frustrated with their lack of access to President Barack Obama.
The White House has made a habit of declaring an event to be closed to the media for national security reasons. However, the official White House photographer, Pete Souza, will still take pictures of the event that was closed off to the media and release them later.
We had some good times, some bad times and some times that felt like the aftereffects of a Gut Pak.
You were merciless, Floyd — beyond merciless. In my lifetime, you ate former Baylor coach Kevin Steele, skin and bone, as Baylor went 1-31 in the Big 12 conference during his tenure. You then, like the Sirens of ancient Greece, coaxed Guy Morriss, the deemed “savior” on his motorcycle, into your depths, only to devour his very soul and sabotage what had been an up-and-coming coaching career (If anyone can get a hold of Guy Morriss’ motorcycle, we should burn it in the final game).
In his usual inflammatory language, Leonard Pitts again demonizes a system that has done wonders to eradicate poverty in his column “Free market unduly hurts poor,” which ran on Wednesday.
Pitts first quotes from the Bible to make the absurd claim that redistribution by the government is somehow sanctioned by religion.
It is not uncommon for parents to cave in when a kid begs for a gift. It’s also not uncommon for the kid to quickly lose interest in whatever gift he or she so desperately wanted not long ago.
This might just be a reality that parents will have to deal with, but the German government has set out to protect its young citizens from this phenomenon. This is because teenagers in Germany have started asking their parents for cosmetic plastic surgery instead of toys.
I like capitalism.
Specifically, I like the idea that if I write a better book, have a better idea, build a better mousetrap, I will be rewarded accordingly.
