Impeachment proceedings begin against Trump
10/17/2019 9:00am

By Jacob Geller On Tuesday, Sept. 24, House Democrats lead by Nancy Pelosi, begun official impeachment proceedings against President Trump. Currently, he is being charged with violating his oath of office by seeking to enlist Ukraine to investigate a political rival, Joe Biden. The situation was given light when a Central Intelligence Agency CIA operative turned whistleblower informed Congress that Trump was threatening to withdraw US aid to Ukraine if they did not investigate Hunter Bidens Joe Bidens son business ties to the Eastern European nation. The long-awaited impeachment inquiry arrives months after demands for a formal inquiry come from democrats and republicans alike. Many have established that the president was unfit for office since his election. Others make valid claims that this is just another action committed by the president that violates the constitution. The impeachment was handed down to the president by formal letter, written by Pelosi. Within the letter, she states that the administration has consistently violated the Constitution and frequently abused presidential powers. Pelosi powerfully ends her letter with the following: Mr. Trump must be held accountable no one is above the law. The outcome is currently very uncertain. The House of Representatives has the ...

Trump administration acts as new invasive species
10/17/2019 9:00am

By Brittany Reed The Trump administration recently eliminated two environment-focused federal advisory boards after the signing of an executive order on Friday, Sept. 27. The executive order will continue 30 panels while dropping two one that concerns the protection of marine life and another, which battles invasive species. This action follows an executive order issued on June 14, which declares that each executive department and agency has to terminate at least one-third of its committees by Monday, Sept. 30. I think its safe to say that its quite unsurprising that the Trump administration chose to slash science and environment-based committees. Both the Marine Protected Areas MPA Federal Advisory Committee and the Interior Departments Invasive Species Advisory Committee ISAC have been around for over a decade, and now Americans are wondering what will happen to marine life and invasive species without government funding for these committees. With the current condition of our environment and the growing threat of climate change, its crucial that we have environmental protection coalitions in place and funding for those coalitions, said senior biology major, Gabrielle Langhorn. Having federal advisory boards to protect the marine and coastal ecosystems is important to everyones life. According to a ...

Demi Lovato’s trip to Israel angers fans online
10/17/2019 9:00am

By Melissa Mora Following the pop stars overdose, Demi Lovato has made her best effort to stay off of what we can all agree is the most toxic place in the world: social media. Lovato has been gone from Twitter since February and rarely posts on Instagram, with the exception of special occasions. One of those exceptions being a trip to Israel, where her ancestry traces back to. On Tuesday, Oct. 1, Lovato made three posts on Instagram about the trip. Two of them being from historical establishments that she visitedIsraels Holocaust museum, Yad Vashem, and Jerusalems Salva Center, a non-profit that provides service to Israelis with special needs. However, it was the image in which she proudly shows off her baptism in the Jordan River that gained the most attention. She made it clear in her caption just how important it was for her to be baptized at the same place as Jesus, and what it meant for her spirituality and connection to God. What was intended to be a spiritual trip turned into a political internet controversy, much to Lovatos surprise. Though her intentions behind not only the photos, but the trip itself, were seemingly pure, thats not ...

The harming paradox of LGBTQ+ rights in America
10/17/2019 9:00am

By Romelo Wilson As the Supreme Court decides over LGBTQ job discrimination, it leaves me wondering: Why is this decision so delayed from the legalization of same-sex marriage According to the Movement Advancement Project, there are 21 states, two territories, and the District of Colombia that prohibit discrimination in the workforce on both sexual orientation and gender identity. Three other states have some legal restrictions on one of the two, meaning that most of the United States has no prohibitions on the employment discrimination of members in the LGBTQ community. Legalizing same-sex marriage nationwide, but still leaving room for states to fire an employee on the grounds of an aspect of their identity, leaves citizens wondering to what extent are LBGTQ members protected in this country. I think its absolutely ridiculous that its even up for debate and if the roles were reversed there would be no question in the judgment, said Jacqueline St. James, a 20-year-old transgender woman. Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 makes it illegal to fire, deprive, or refuse to hire any individual based on race, color, religion, sex, or national origin. Most of the judges that voted against prohibiting LGBTQ employment discrimination ...

Tampa basketball alumna signs to play overseas
10/17/2019 8:00am

by Isabel Marhoun Staja Tygther, University of Tampa 2019 alumna, has signed a professional deal to play basketball overseas in Norway. She signed with Baerum Oslo of the Norwegian Basketball League NBL. Tygther transferred to UT from Georgia State University. While at UT, she was named first-team All-Sunshine State Conference as a senior, and during her junior year she was named to the second team. She led the womens basketball team in scoring, with 12.9 points per game her senior year, leaving her responsible for 20.9 of the scoring load. Staja was a great player here for us, said head coach, Tom Jessee. She was a two time all conference player and was a match up problem for our opponents. She should be a top player in that league, and I expect her to move quickly up to even better leagues. During her entire college career, Staja totaled 1,000 collegiate career points spread between her time at Georgia and Tampa. She will start her career debut this winter with Baerum and the UT coaches are confident that she will perform well. Staja was one of the best athletes we have ever had at Tampa, said assistant coach, Caitlyn Mitryk. She ...
