The dangers of insularity

President Trump ran on a platform of nationalism, protectionism, and isolationism from both economic and social standpoints; his anti-immigration stances and his proposed pro-tariff policies are salient examples of Mr. Trump’s embodiment of the populist ideals that seem to have taken hold of the U.S. voting constituency. As citizens, it is of great difficulty to… Keep Reading

Women, where do we go from here?

As I paced between rooms on the third floor of Trotter, I sensed the rising tide of uncertainty. The New York Times had just altered their forecast; only an hour ago, Secretary Clinton had a 93 percent chance of victory, but over the course of a few minutes, the prediction had dramatically shifted, now forecasting… Keep Reading

Sanders was forced to admit that the possibility of his loss was becoming increasingly real.

Corporate environment contorts feminism

On a daily basis, we are surrounded by extremely accepting and intelligent peers, who generally do not discriminate against one another on the basis of characteristics inherited by birth. More often than not, we are judged on our merits and our hard work, not… Keep Reading

Bernie’s bandwagon set to break down

FiveThirtyEight founder Nate Silver, a statistician and writer by trade, correctly predicted the electoral outcomes of all 50 states during the 2012 presidential election; in 2008, he called the winner of 49 out of 50 states correctly. Silver, a pioneer in the field of “data journalism,” seems to be on his a-game when it comes… Keep Reading
