In response to Lindsay Robert's Aug. 30 column "#AllLivesMatter, not just #BlackLivesMatter".
USG recently tabled a bill commemorating the 100th Anniversary of the Armenian Genocide for being “outside of the purview of the organization.” USG Senators originally passed the resolution unanimously. This reversal shows a lack of moral leadership, or else a double standard.
In response Joan LeBeau's April 14 column "Tuition rates: a story of pots and kettles."
As the past few days have unfolded, I have noticed a common underlying theme beneath the adoption of the Religious Freedom Restoration Act. Small businesses are citing this law as a means to not serve the LGBT community, which is creating a division between citizens’ ideologies across the country. Also, the passage of the Religious Freedom Restoration Act breaches the unwritten code of service between consumers and producers by tipping the scales towards the producers after they have given them the power to refuse service to a minority group of society. Specifically, the LGBT.
As an attendee of the ASU Global Institute of Sustainability’s recent lecture by columnist Thomas Friedman, I had hoped for what had been billed as an enlightening discussion on the intersection of environmentalism and international political stability. Unfortunately, it quickly became clear that Friedman’s interest in sustainability is in its ability to be used as a metaphor for recent developments in the world of high finance and Middle East politics rather than on the gravely important subject of what defines a sustainable culture and how we may eventually create one. Obviously a lecture can’t be all things to all people so I am willing to admit that what was a fairly trite and superficial analysis of global sustainability to me may have been revelatory for other members of the audience. But, for an institution that aspires to be on the cutting edge of environmental thinking, ASU could do so much better.
Yesterday, Feb. 26, the Office of the President sent a mass-email to the ASU Community titled “Impact of Proposed ASU Budget Cut”. The focus of this email was to elucidate Sun Devil students, alumni, staff and affiliates of newly elected Gov. Doug Ducey’s proposal to slash $40.3 million of state funding for ASU. In the email, Dr. Michael Crow, our university’s president, characterized the proposal in a few different ways.
In response to Derrik Rochwalik's Jan. 27 column "President Obama swipes left on Prime Minister Netanyahu"Mr. Rochwalik's opinion criticizing President Obama for refusing to receive Prime Minister Netanyahu of Israel fails to account for the President's long-term strategy in dealing with Iran. While Iran wants to continue its nuclear program, the West is in talks with Iranian ambassadors and negotiators to curb these ambitions in a way that would prevent the country from producing a nuclear weapon.This is the appropriate strategy in the short-term, since while economic sanctions have certainly hurt Iran, they have failed to deter the country from nuclear aspirations. What Mr. Rochwalik ignores is that further sanctions against Iran would close negotiations, therefore destroying the possibility of reaching a peaceful resolution and achieving a monumental foreign policy win for the United States. Mr. Netanyahu and his parliamentary coalition face an election on March 17. He derives much support from the right wing of his country that refuses to accept a peaceful settlement and will do what he can to derail these talks in order to maintain domestic power.Speaker Boehner is actively assisting Mr. Netanyahu in his aims. The truly "irresponsibly childish" person is not President Obama, but rather Speaker Boehner who is undermining American interests and security by siding with a foreign leader instead of the President for his own political gain for the Republicans.It is President Obama's role as chief diplomat to invite foreign heads of state, not Speaker Boehner's. While the White House may call it a “breach of protocol” it is in reality a usurpation of constitutional authority. I would hope that Mr. Rochwalik would understand the difference between snubbing a foreign leader and refusing to greet one while he undermines American national security on our own soil.

To begin, we feel it appropriate given the timing to send our condolences to the families of all who have been affected in the recent attack on a Jewish synagogue in Jerusalem.
The way The State Press’s recent article, "Devils Fight Back promotes sexual safety with self-defense classes" talks about sexual violence, you would think that they were talking about inclement weather. It makes sense to teach people to deal with and avoid something like a hurricane; something beyond the influence of us humans. But sexual violence is not an "act of God," an event out of our control that we just have to learn to deal with. Violence is the result of the actions of individual people, something that we, as individuals, have control over.
In 2012, I had solar panels installed on my Tempe home and saw a reduction in my electricity bill of 70 percent. Recently, I had the chance to review a similar contract for a new solar installation. For almost the same price that I paid, this solar system will produce roughly 45 percent more electricity than mine. This brave new world of technology, combined with hardworking local solar businesses, is keeping more dollars in Arizonan's pockets and less pollution from dirty coal and other fossil fuels from being released.
To whom it may concern,
Only about one in four sexual assaults committed in Arizona is ever solved by police.
Libertarians are not particularly fond of regulated monopolies. We favor free markets. We disagree with regulated monopolies using captive ratepayer dollars to inhibit individual choice.
As a registered independent voter in Arizona's 9th Congressional District, there are many excellent reasons for me to support Congresswoman Kyrsten Sinema.
I've been at ASU since 2005, and I've seen a lot of changes on campus. However, what I find surprising is how vulnerable students are to crime.
My parents have never been made of money, but when I was young they set out to do something great for our family and for themselves. They both attended ASU, my father graduating with an engineering degree and my mother graduating with a degree in history. While, yes, this choice was a great accomplishment for them, it set a standard of college graduates (and ASU attendees) for their children, but financially speaking, is it always the best choice?
For voters in rigged districts where there is only one candidate to vote for that they don't like, here is an idea to let them show their displeasure. Unlike some places, Arizona does not have "None of the Above" as a ballot election. But they do allow write-in candidates, and a ballot marked for a write-in candidate gets automatically tabulated and will show up immediately in the results available on election night. Instead of voting for the only candidate, or not voting for any candidate, just mark the write-in selection and write "None of the Above" in the blank where a name would go.
It’s 8:30 p.m. on Monday night, Sept.15. I’m looking through my usual round of news websites, seeing what’s happening in the world.
Whether you are just starting at ASU or coming back for another year, it’s always a good time to think about having a healthy sex life. Being smart and responsible about your sexual health is one of the most important things you can do. Your future can look very different if you aren’t thinking about your health and safety today.
