Know Your Rights: A Guide for Student Journalists
05/01/2018 3:53pm

by ALEJANDRO ROMERO, JAMIE ZALE AND VERONICA BROWN Knowing your rights is important. Knowing how to defend yourselves against anyone infringing on your First Amendment rights is crucial.  Alejandro Romero, Multimedia Editor for The Minaret and  Jamie Zale and Veronica Brown, contributing multimedia journalists for The Minaret, had a firsthand experience in being kicked off The Marion Transit, an alleged private bus station. But how is the property private when the agency providing the service to the bus station is funded by taxpayers money? The trio spent an entire semester dedicated to informing student of their first amendment rights. See the journey that they went through in order for us to know our rights. Editor’s Note: This documentary comes as a continuation of The Minaret’s earlier reports from the story “Students First Amendment Right’s Questioned.” The Editor-in-Chief of The Minaret was interviewed in this documentary, but had no say in its production before its first public showing.  

The architect of happiness
04/23/2018 2:20pm

BY MANI THANGADURAI Throughout the course of my life, I have opted to study certain subjects in an attempt to try and indulge an interest. The main aim, however, was to forge a future for myself with an emphasis on financial security and the chance to work in my country of choice. I remember the peer pressure being piled on me by many of my father’s contemporaries who suggested that I go into medicine like he did, or do something related to the sciences which would have promised more in terms of money and fame. Even my own father was never keen on me trying to pursue the theatrical arts or anything related to the arts in question for the understandable fear that I wouldn’t really earn a living. After finishing high school I decided to study architecture because I remember being fascinated by the art and science of building something tangible from the ground upwards and something that could last longer. I liked to try drawing and remember having some ideas of how to design a building. But my first year at the university where I studied architecture was the year when I had the passion taken out of [...]

Should student athletes get paid?
04/19/2018 7:03am

BY JOHN FELTMAN The National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA)  claims to be a non-profit organization in which their mission is “to govern competition in a fair, safe, equitable and sportsmanlike manner, and to integrate intercollegiate athletics into higher education so that the educational experience of the student-athlete is paramount.” But the real question is, is that really their mission? Every single year, the NCAA generates billions of dollars in revenue, and claims to recycle all of that money back into the organization’s funding. This has been a controversial issue for years now, and this is an issue that will only continue to pick up steam. Student athletes on average spend 40-50 hours on their sport per week and along with time being spent in the classroom it’s hard to see how student athletes survive. Getting a part time job is out of the question. Unless they are provided with unlimited meals and housing by their university, it’s uncertain how they get by with no source of income. “I agree it is tough for players to have a part time job and stay up with academics and their sport,” Adrian Bush,UT Men’s Head Soccer Coach, said, “Academics needs to be first, [...]

Build your way up: Make money with Fortnite
04/19/2018 7:00am

BY JACOB TRASK When I go home in the evening, I play Fortnite. When my friends get home, they play Fortnite. Everyone that I know plays Fortnite. There literally isn’t a single college-aged guy who doesn’t play Fortnite. It’s the best and most popular game in the world right now. There’s no argument about it. The Hunger Games style, fight-to-the-death game has been the most played game in the nation for the last several months and has already established itself as one of the most intensely popular games in video game history. If you don’t play Fortnite, you should. Not just because it’s seriously addictive, but also because you might be able to put some extra money in your wallet by doing it. It’s one of the most unorthodox and entertaining ways to make a living and America’s youth is figuring out how to benefit from it through internet streaming and plain balling out at the game. A popular 26-year-old gamer named Tyler Blevins, better known as Ninja, recently made headlines thanks to his ridiculous monthly salary of $560,000 that he earns by streaming his games on a popular streaming website called Twitch. He has 160,000 personal subscribers who are [...]

Cryptocurrency explained
04/19/2018 7:00am

By MAURICIO RICH The price drops. Then it rises. It plunges again. Frustration. That’s the volatility of the cryptocurrency market since they became popular in the past five years. For those who are still unfamiliar with it, let me tell you. It is the future. Cryptocurrencies are virtual coins which can be bought and sold, essentially to make profit, but also to send money with no fee to somebody around the world. So where do people actually buy these coins? They are exchanges and they have hundreds of different coins, but of course not all of them are reliable. Think of a virtual store that only sells coins. Once they are purchased, traditional currencies such as dollars or euros become cryptocurrencies. For example, if you purchase five Litecoins at $100, then those five coins are worth the money you invest. If the value of the coin increases, you win. The coins are kept in virtual wallets in the exchange. Coins have different prices and they can either rise or drop depending on how many people buy or sell a particular coin. If a bank or a big company backs up a coin, people will believe it is a safe coin [...]
