In 2018, the Denver Nuggets drafted Michael Porter Jr. with the Nov. 14 overall pick in the NBA Draft. Despite playing just three games in college after suffering a back injury, MPJ’s top-ranked talent out of high school, where he averaged 36/14/5 his senior year, was enough to earn himself a lottery pick.
Native American Cultural Programs (NACP) held a screening and discussion of “Dawnland” Wednesday, which explored and documented the efforts of the MWTRC.
After years of waiting for a new restaurant to take over Panda Express’ vacant spot in the Student Union, Dining Services’ Earth, Wok and Fire finally opened Tuesday. As my friends and I discovered, the new eatery has some good food, but it comes at a price.
Only two weeks ago, Sanders was hospitalized for a heart attack, which required him to have a stent put in place. At the debate, Sanders seemed in good health as he continued to pitch his long-held proposal of Medicare for All while he rallied against billionaires.

In the age of social and visual media dominating people’s feeds and screens, body image is a topic of discussion that many people, including college-age students, struggle with. In America, 10 million women are struggling with eating disorders, and countless more have likely had societal pressures weigh on their self-confidence.

On Oct. 4, Houston Rockets general manager Daryl Morey sent the National Basketball Association (NBA) into a frenzy when he tweeted a graphic with this message.

Not only does ginger boast a number of health benefits, like decreasing muscle soreness and acting as an anti-inflammatory, but it tastes great too.

Disclaimer: I’m a Jets fan. A big one. I had high hopes for this team heading into the season, and, well, they haven’t lived up to them so far. It’s not entirely their fault, with quarterback Sam Darnold missing three games due to mononucleosis and C.J. Mosley missing all but the first half and change of Week 1.
