Overheard Around Campus: Where do you like to eat around school?

“Most of the time I go to the deli on 67th or 66th and Lex. They have a lot of breakfast specials, and a salad bar.” — Jennifer Hallovan, Nursing Major, Class of 2014

Philip Ewell Performs With Andrew Pau – Hunter College offers concerts put on by faculty members

With the emergence of the digital age and the increased accessibility of popular music in today’s culture, classical music’s popularity has slowly waned over the years. More college students should be exposed to the realm of classical music, whether it’s through databases on the Internet, or through attending performances. Students at Hunter College are lucky enough to be provided with classical music concerts performed by faculty members, for $5 or free with a Hunter ID.

Revolts Could Imply a New, Less Radical Middle East

With the Jasmine Revolution in Tunisia to the fall of Egypt’s 30-year tyrant to the uprisings in Libya, Iran, Yemen, Bahrain, Morocco and other North African and Middle Eastern nations, citizens have been exercising or attempting to exercise their God-given right to peacefully overthrow their governments. Thus far, we have seen the peaceful overthrow of the tyrants in Tunisia and Egypt. As of the time of the writing of this article, the protests in Bahrain and Libya have become violent to the extent that the governments have contracted foreign mercenaries to subdue the protesters. Without a doubt, the unrest in the region has many U.S. officials and foreign diplomats biting their nails. The situation can ultimately go either way: genocide by the tyrants or democratization. The officials hope, however, that the political power goes from civilian dictatorships to the hands of the military to, finally, the formation of democratic states. Without fear in citizens’ hearts and the domino effect the uprisings are having, I believe that the significance of al-Qaeda will also be reduced as a result of these revolts.

Racino Aqueduct’s Jackpot Morally Bankrupt

New York City has placed its bet on casino gambling within its own boroughs. After striking a deal with developers last year, the city gave the okay for the Aqueduct Racetrack in Queens — fondly remembered in its racing heyday as “Big A” — to open as a racetrack combined with a casino, or “racino.” Prior to this, the track had become a dusty grandstand, visited mainly for the thriving flea market housed in its parking lot. The implications of the Aqueduct’s neon-lit facelift are immense, but opponents have been effectively sidelined. Despite an editorial frown from the New York Times (“Looks Sleazy to Us”) and pleas from flea vendors to preserve their market niche, the racetrack-turned-casino set in working-class Ozone Park is slated to open its first aisle of slots this May.

The Written Public Forum – Decreasing the integrity of Hunter College through magic markers

In the past, all that people had was their word. The spoken word used to be the most legitimate source of information and embodied strength powerful enough to connect a town or area through stories and events. While once effective, the spoken word has died, in terms of holding a society up to date, with the technological revolution. Along with the spoken word, the written word, in terms of public value, has gone down the drain, too. Specifically, technology has granted people the ability to connect to one another all over the world, providing instant feedback and a continual update of current events and affairs. I mention this not to stir up another debate between technology and society, but because it seems that the written public forum has been reborn: on the stalls of the bathrooms at Hunter College.
