Throughout his presidency, former President Donald Trump created stark division, ultimately causing corruption to ripple throughout the American government. One prime example is the attack on the Capitol held on Jan. 6, 2021, where Trump had previously told those who voted for him that the election was rigged. This moment represented the influence that Trump had on far-right conservatives to the point where they physically attacked the Capitol, imposing their own view that the election was rigged, ultimately revealing how much corruption can be found within America as a whole.

Recently, I began watching the Netflix show “Narcos,” which follows the criminal exploits of Colombian drug lord Pablo Escobar. It is based on true events and so far, I have been surprised at how much turmoil one person could seemingly cause within a country. Nowadays, the drug lord narrative is used heavily and is oftentimes successful in gaining attention, mainly because producers will overdramatize the historical event in order to make it more entertaining.

To feed or not to feed? That is the question many Hoosiers may find themselves debating while encountering the friendly furballs around campus. After my last article about how feeding the squirrels is dangerous, I realized that the IU population has developed a devotion and adoration for the little creatures as multiple accounts expressed their opinions on the matter.
Last week, when my contacts were irritating me, and my glasses began hurting my nose, I decided not to wear either of them. In the moment, I didn’t realize that this choice could inspire a new perspective on my surroundings.
If you’ve seen “Monty Python and the Holy Grail,” you know that the little, black bunny titled the “killer bunny” is all bite, with little bark as a warning. Its death count may be the same as historical action movie figure James Bond. This is a fictional danger, but to people like one of my best friends, it could highlight truths. One of her biggest fears is that squirrels will jump down from trees attacking humans at the jugular. It hasn’t happened yet, but how dangerous could these little critters be?
From childhood, men are oftentimes expected to suppress their emotions and to be leaders, while women are expected to be submissive and emotional. This history of stereotypes is something that both genders have to carry throughout their daily lives.
In January, journalist A.J. Jacobs attempted to go a day without using plastic and found that within the first few seconds of waking up, he failed. His feet had landed on a carpet made of plastic nylon fibers as he got out of bed. His journey reflected that Americans rely on plastic like it's an addiction – we can’t even go a day without it, let alone a couple minutes.

With recent LGBTQ community targeted hate crimes — namely the shooting at Club Q in Colorado Springs — identifying with the community can seem even more daunting. Catholicism is one religious sect where homophobia is prominent.
I was working on my homework at the library and noticed that the person next to me seemed stressed. I didn’t think much of it mainly because that’s a usual occurrence for a college student. However, after a quick glance at their screen, I saw there was an ad playing. Then another played – like on a YouTube video when they shove two ads before the video begins for 20 seconds without letting you skip. Eventually, the student passed the ads and could watch the main video – possibly for an assignment – and then the student seemed calmer once the video began to play.
I first learned about composting from my dad. One day, there was this small, metal canister sitting on the kitchen counter, and my siblings and I were told that by putting food scraps into this bin, it would break down into nutrients to help my dad's garden grow.
Throughout my life, there have been moments where I have witnessed a person looked down upon because of their lifestyle or judged because of their perceived status. Maybe their house was smaller or their furniture was older.
