In early 19th century China, women were viewed as property and often not even given their own names, simply being referred to as “daughter of…” or “wife of…”, belonging to their male family members. They were expected to stay home and raise children, preferably sons. One woman rose out of this oppression to become a pirate captain. Today, she is known as Madame Ching, Ching Shih, or Cheng I Sao and is considered to be the most successful pirate in history.

Viewpoints

The increase in school shootings and consequential media coverage led people to propose possible solutions. One concept proposed is arming teachers to better protect and deter a would-be shooter.

Some suggested raising the purchasing age of so-called “long guns,” while others argued that “military-style” guns should be banned. Despite bipartisan support for the measures, Pres. Donald Trump again raised the stakes with a controversial pitch that would bring more guns into students’ lives.

Change is an important part of our life and it is something that can hard be to adjust to at times. While changes can either be good or bad, when it comes to our dining services, I think it is obvious that if any changes take place, it would be better for the good and in favor of the public or student body - especially those who live on campus and rely on the dining services for all meals.
