The year is 2012. Katy Perry plays softly in the background from busted computer speakers as three of my cousins huddle around my younger brother. With a steady hand and an intent look, my oldest cousin carefully outlines his eye with thick, dark eyeliner. The other two giggle and watch as the makeup smudges and engulfs his lower lid. This was not a forced dress-up situation but thorough preparation for a YouTube video.
Sex trafficking is a phrase with a connotation that invokes fear in many — a term that, more recently, has blown up on social media across Arizona.
The Valley Metro lightrail presents a variety of safety concerns that inhibit some in the ASU community from feeling comfortable riding, students say.

Forced female genital mutilation. Child marriage. Honor violence. Rape and sexual assault. These are just a few examples of gendered violence that women face on a daily basis. One thing that all of these acts of violence have in common? They are often justified on religious grounds.
A City at a Crossroads
Arizona State University spends almost $100 million on sanctioned sport programs every year in order to get the best performance from the most elite athletes in the state. However, one genre seems to be missing from ASU’s lineup: winter sports.

Free speech is a hot-button topic across college campuses in America. Amid stories of controversies over universities censoring students, ASU is protecting its students' First Amendment rights. Overall, that's a good thing, but it's not without cost.
Arizona’s education system funding is like "Vanderpump Rules," in that over the years, the more I’ve learned about it, the more confused and frustrated I get. Decisions made in both Bravo's lowest common denominator and our own state's broken education finances can only be met with one question: How can these monstrosities be allowed to run unchecked in 2018?
There is a dark side to environmental activism, one unconcerned with hugging trees and rather convicted in its authority to burn them down. Not the living ones, of course — rather the dead, milled, compressed and, sometimes, constructed ones. They want to burn down buildings, complexes of buildings, even neighborhoods. They want to burn them down not because they are built but because they are built by professionals, who, in turn, compete against other professionals to build more buildings.
Teach For America, in less than 30 years, has risen to become, perhaps, the most influential organization in education. However, for over a decade, education researchers at ASU have pointed to the pernicious nature of the organization's approach to education.
"The grapevine": a phrase coined after the telegraph but sounds like it should have been named after the Grecian practice of gossiping in the vineyard.
