Pressure Increases For A Scottish Independence Referendum

Advocate Yaël Published in PanAm Post on Scottish Independence

Advocate Yaël Ossowski was published in The PanAm Post about a recent trip to Scoland he had interacting with locals about the independence referendum.

It’s been said we’re all witnesses to history.

In just a few days, ordinary Scots have the rare opportunity to be promoted far beyond that, to the level of active participants in a major seismic shift of geopolitics.

The decision the majority of the Scottish public will make in the September 18 referendum to become an independent country has the potential to break up the United Kingdom, one of the most powerful countries of the last three centuries.

Editor Casey Published in Rare on Net Neutrality

Young Voices Editor Casey Given was published in Rare breaking down what net neutrality is:

Last Wednesday, a number of popular websites including Reddit, Netflix, and Twitter participated in Internet Slowdown Day, intentionally slowing down service on their platforms to protest the Federal Communication Commission’s (FCC) proposed draft of their new “open Internet” rules. The companies feel that the proposed regulations abandon the FCC’s former resolution to enforce net neutrality — leaving millions of Americans asking one question: “What is net neutrality again?”

Carl Edwards Gets Schooled By Fort Worth SWAT Team

Editor Casey Published in Townhall on Public School Militarization

Editor Casey Given was published in Townhall about the Department of Defense’s paramilitary transfers to public schools.

In wake of the shooting of unarmed teenager Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri, many Americans are concerned about the militarization of local police. One issue that continues to be downplayed, however, is just how local this arms race has gotten. The Department of Defense (DOD) is funneling paramilitary equipment, not just to municipal and county police departments, but to public schools as well.

Advocate Luis Published in The Oslo Times on Borders

Advocate Luis Eduardo Barrueto was published in The Oslo Times on what borders mean in an increasingly globalized age.

This constant monitoring of human movement marks a paradigmatic change, posing challenges for the defense of fundamental rights and opening the paths for further infringements. The global economy has taught us that the free flow of people, goods, and ideas is essential to human prosperity. We must always ensure that it is not threatened by governments in the name of security.

Advocate Matthew Published in the Providence Journal on Overdose Treatment

Advocate Matthew La Corte was published in the Providence Journal on Rhode Island’s legalization of Narcan to treat overdoses.

By the end of August, all 60 CVS pharmacies across Rhode Island offered the opiate antidote Narcan, also known as naloxone, without a prescription. Narcan offers immediate help during an overdose from opiates such as heroin or prescription painkillers like OxyContin. If given early enough, Narcan can even reverse an overdose by restoring breathing and save the life of the user. This breakthrough could save hundreds of lives across Rhode Island, where a recent spike in overdose deaths has led to what some are calling an epidemic.

Advocate Rachel Published in LibertyChat on the Death Penalty

Young Voices Editor Rachel Burger was published in LibertyChat about the death penalty.

Last week, North Carolina released the 145th and 146th prisoner from death row for wrongful conviction. Henry McCollum and his half-brother, Leon Brown, were 19 and 15, respectfully, when they were convicted of raping and murdering an 11-year-old girl. Neither man has an IQ over 70 and were recognized as mentally disabled at the time of the trial. Earlier this month, they were released after new DNA evidence uncovered that another known sex-offender was behind the girl’s death. The two brothers are now experiencing freedom for the first time in 30 years. The shoddy way this case was carried out underscores the need to end the death penalty.

Advocate PierreGuy Published by TheBlaze on Citizens United

Advocate PierreGuy Veer was published in TheBlaze on campaign finance and Citizens United.

In order to get money out of politics, we need to get politics out of our lives as much as possible. This way, businesses will only be able to rely on their wits to be successful, and people will act more according to their self-interest rather than artificial incentives – like those that caused the housing bubble and crash of the previous decade.

Advocate Jared Quoted by CNBC on Job Creation

Advocate Jared Meyer was quoted by a CNBC article on job creation.

Regulations are another big concern for smaller employers, said Jared Meyer, policy analyst at the Manhattan Institute, a conservative think tank. In fact, since 1997, the use of the words “shall” and “must” in regulatory guidelines for businesses has increased by 27 percent, Meyer said.

“The regulatory maze, as far as the government saying you can’t work or do this or that without an extensive permit or license means they can’t expand,” Meyer said. “That’s where you are seeing hiring falling out. It’s a side effect of the state.”

Advocate Matthew Published in Long Island Report on Immigration

Advocate Matthew La Corte was published in the Long Island Report about New York’s unique history of immigration.

New York is home to the Statue of Liberty, the ultimate symbol of Americans dedicated to immigration, and the first thing seen by over 12 million immigrants processed at Ellis Island, the nation’s busiest immigration station from 1860 to 1920.

Hofstra students should support continuing this rich tradition and urge lawmakers to accept more unaccompanied children that arrive at the southern border. As young people who often get the short end of the stick in the political arena, it’s on us to show support for youngsters unable to vote.
