  • Interpersonal Violence Awareness Week begins events this week at locations across the Missouri Baptist University campus, bringing needed recognition to issues of abuse within college relationships. For example, nearly 80 percent of rape victims know their offender, and nearly 25 percent of adult females in relationships have experienced violence from their partners.
  • As the federal government shutdown has now reached the one-month mark we are coming to see all too clearly that real lives are being affected by each new day of the stalemate. Paychecks are not being issued to more than 800,000 federal employees, leaving many to wonder how they are going to pay their mortgages, rent, car payments and utility bills. And the ripple effect is being felt across many related industries. Even though furloughed employees will eventually receive their back pay once the government reopens, it’s not much consolation in the here and now. Today our student journalists are blogging on their thoughts about the historic shutdown, the longest in U.S. history.
  • The electronic cigarette, and its many forms, has peaked in popularity in recent years. Studies show the repercussions of these products to be substantially less harmful than tobacco cigarettes, but the Food and Drug Administration has taken action to reduce the use and access of e-cigarettes among young people.
  • Black Lives Matter, the Black Panther Party and the Civil Rights Movement all have one common theme: liberation for blacks in America. However, black liberation always seems to be met with an exorbitant amount of opposition from the media, law enforcement and even the government. The same cannot be said for other movements.
  • Is there such a thing as Chicago style deep-dish pizza in St. Louis? And could you possibly get that in a gluten-free version? Maybe even dairy free? And will it actually taste great? Mellow Mushroom has everything your pizza-loving taste buds crave.
  • Forty-one out of 50 states in America have adopted the common core national standard, which claims it will help prepare our students for college. But is this only preparing them to be talented standardized test takers?
  • American football is a sport that has really taken off in other countries like Serbia, Denmark, and even Germany. MBU has a student athlete who took the opportunity to play overseas, now he’s back to share his experience.
  • Made fresh and warm pressed, The Baked Bear takes ice cream sandwiches to a new level in St. Louis. Located on the Delmar Loop, this cozy drop-in makes the perfect place to round out your night.
