it’s a little ironic that students’ act of civil disobedience, however small, has been ordered, shaped, packaged and handled by the adults in charge. And teachers, who try to help kids understand the world, don’t really get a voice.
In the nearly 10 years since its founding, the anti-recidivism effort has dramatically reduced the recidivism rate for men and women who voluntarily participate in the program and are considered high risk for returning to prison.
Latinos make up 17 percent of the U.S. population, but represent less than 8 percent of the participants in National Institutes of Health clinical trials. Scientists at KU need data from healthy older adults to advance our understanding.
The same government that is seeking to take away someone’s liberty is also required by the Constitution to provide that individual with an effective counsel. But that oftentimes doesn’t happen because of the lack of available public defenders.
For a small business, the effects of a cyberattack can be devastating. Operating with less capital and fewer resources than their larger counterparts, most small businesses are not equipped to deal with the fallout if a breach occurs.
Groups such as Moms Demand Action and Everytown For Gun Safety have been working hard for years to get other adults involved in promoting safer gun laws. But are the rest of the adults in our country doing enough to demand change?
“Ambition is a good servant, but a bad master,” goes the wise old saying. Being able to decipher the difference is a critical skill of a leader. I am disheartened that Greitens has not heeded the calls for his resignation.
In our internet-driven age, the idea of mailing costs as a limiting factor is ridiculous. Yet, our national legislature insisted long into the digital age that CRS reports can only be obtained by requesting one from a member of Congress.

While it’s true that Bezos’ Washington Post has been relentless in its investigations into the president’s administration and the Trump Organization’s business dealings, this feud is mostly about money and ego — not negative press.

I sacrificed part of my hearing at Nugent’s concerts and listening to his albums at full blast, but it was worth it. Ted Nugent was like me and others like me: Midwesterners trying to find our place in an indifferent world.
The independent first ran for U.S. Senate in 2008 as a Democrat, and donated to Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton and Al Franken that year. In 2010, Orman reversed course, donating to Scott Brown’s Senate campaign.
