"Bernie will lose to Donald Trump, and Donald Trump and the House and the Senate and some of the statehouses will all go red," billionaire former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg said, adding that would be "a catastrophe." It adds up to four more years of Donald Trump," Buttigieg said, adding that a Sanders race against Trump would be devastating to the country. Joe Biden, the national front-runner not so long ago, needs to win South Carolina to keep his campaign alive and said he expected to finish first on Saturday. But, folks, I intend to win in South Carolina, and I will win the African-American vote here in South Carolina," Biden said. "I am scared, if we cannot pull this party together, if we go to one of those extremes, we take a terrible risk of re-electing Donald Trump."

Miss Anthropocene, framed as a concept album for an imaginary “death god” personifying the climate crisis, gives us a good idea. The Canadian singer stays true to her experimental dream pop, electronic and hip hop influences throughout Miss Anthropocene. While both tackle real-world problems with an overlay of electronic beats, Miss Anthropocene sounds more distinctly other-worldy and hypnotic in comparison to Art Angels’ more raw soundscape. Many of the songs on Miss Anthropocene draw inspiration from difficult topics. The finished product sounds less like a concept album and more like ten singles mashed together onto a mixtape.

More importantly, since high school, American streaming services and Youtube have pretty much fully comprised my options, and it’s often difficult to get a hold of Asian films and TV due to copyright restrictions. I ended up not having much patience for the movie and exiting out of it halfway through, but the next recommendation drew my attention — A Netflix Original Korean drama. I didn’t know what was more bizarre: me getting recommended Korean television by the algorithm, or American streaming services distributing K-dramas. Therefore, I’d imagine it’s nearly impossible for any non-Asian Americans to come across Asian television by accident. I wonder how exactly the company got the memo that bringing Asian television to the American market would be a hugely profitable decision.

Granted, studying abroad can be challenging for some, but it is important that we try to step out of our comfort zone and try something new. I’m not saying that students can’t have a fulfilling experience at Cornell without studying abroad, but there is value in being somewhere outside of your norm. Absetou Diakite ’21 shared, “I had a great experience in London last semester because I was able to gain my first experience working in a corporate environment. Still, this is a Cornell program and the experience was still challenging. So, think about it: Will you take the chance to escape Ithaca?

Fossil fuel divestment is finally a hot topic. The goal of the fossil fuel divestment movement is, obviously, to divest. The immediate impact of fossil fuel divestment is fairly simple. The long term impacts of fossil fuel divestment are more complicated. For our community, however, it’s the most effective tool available to steer fossil fuel companies away from business as usual.

In his statement, Minister Shahid noted that the government welcomed ICJ's ruling last month, which ordered Myanmar to "take all measures within its power” to protect the Rohingya from genocide. In addition to the Rohingya, Minister Shahid again raised Maldives' concern for the plight of Palestinians, reiterating the island nation's support for "their inalienable right to self-determination." Noting that the Maldivian parliament declared a climate emergency on February 12, he welcomed the UN Secretary General's Call to Action for Human Rights, which recognises the link between human rights and climate change. In his concluding remarks, Minister Shahid thanked the UNHRC for supporting Maldives in implementing its human rights agenda. "The Maldives will continue to promote and protect human rights of all.

You mutter a seven letter word which my editor won’t let me print. You mutter two four letter words and that seven letter word again. You say the four letter word a few times and a nine letter word for good measure. You used to like doing laundry. Enjoy doing your laundry and try not to fixate on how bad of a job you’re doing on it.

However, the medical community is increasingly equipped with more advanced technology that can more quickly discover new viruses, though challenges still loom. “We’re much better at discovering, tracking, and characterizing new viruses,” Gulick said. In a type of illness Gulick called “zoonosis,” humans can contract viruses not only from other humans, but animals as well, such as in the case of SARS. The occurrence and severity of outbreaks, Gulick explained, depends on which of these modes of transmission a virus uses to spread. “We’re much better, particularly in the last five years, about being able to develop vaccines in a rapid way,” Gulick said.

While some think that traveling by car is more sustainable than traveling by airplane, this is not always the case. One way is carbon offsetting, in which individuals fund environmental projects that decrease atmospheric greenhouse gas levels, such as replanting trees to absorb excess carbon dioxide from the air using photosynthesis. This results in a net reduction of an individual’s carbon footprint through reabsorption of the harmful carbon emissions one can generate, especially through travel. However, the manufacturing of newer “eco-friendly” cars can actually create a larger environmental impact than the carbon emissions potentially saved from simply switching to a more fuel-efficient car. “A lot of people think that, as an individual, their personal carbon footprint is unimportant,” Vincent said.

Under the GSP programme, Bangladesh had benefitted from exporting around 5,000 different items to the US market tariff-free. Bangladesh has made considerable progress in improving RMG factory environment and worked on other conditions, but the US has not restored the GSP facilities. The Charge d’affaires said her country is looking forward to begin discussions about reintroducing GSP. “The US is looking forward to talk again about restoring GSP status and a great deal of progress on workers’ rights,” she added. “On workers’ rights, these are the same kind of things we are looking into any country that wants to get GSP.
