Most students in their young, fun-oriented lives are not focused on having children. But bringing kids into the picture might help put a security issue into perspective.
Venkata: Recording accurate mass shooting and disaster statistics is an absolute necessity, in order to effectively deal a solution
On April 20, 1999, the Columbine High School shooting became the deadliest in U.S. history thus far when two shooters claimed the lives of 13 people and then their own, injuring 23 more. Since then, shootings and their death tolls being broadcast by the news cycle have become commonplace.
Venkata: With Bird taking flight and Lime trickling into the Twin Cities, regulation of services is left to catch up
The scooters and bikes are dockless. You can pick them up and leave them whenever you want by paying with a smartphone app. To say the least, I was surprised. These bikes and scooters just hang out, wherever, unchained and for the taking. But I, a human, have to be careful not to get robbed?
The fourth-deadliest mass shooting to date in the United States was at Sandy Hook, on December 14, 2012. After that shooting, the National Rifle Association got to work to put together a response to prevent further deaths of schoolchildren.
The hoops grocery stores have to jump through are pretty high. A manager has to anticipate how much they will sell in a given order period, taking care to not undershoot and end up with bare shelves, or overshoot, which causes some produce to rot, in turn spoiling even more other food.

Don’t get me wrong, flights are convenient. They’re fast and fun, and sometimes you score something duty-free. But especially if you’re buying last-minute, they can cost an arm and a leg. Furthermore, the amount of pollution a commercial jet emits in one flight is shocking. For example, flying round-trip New York to San Francisco stamps 0.9 metric tons of a carbon footprint per passenger, or about 20 percent of the average annual car emission.
I’ve always lived in a big city and always been pro-human rights, but this Sunday was the first pride parade I managed to get to. High school and college are when most of us begin to grasp the gravity of the meaning of Pride parades — these periods are a formative time for us all.
I estimate that what actually happens to our recycling is a mystery to most people — it certainly was to me. But last week, I got the chance to visit the University of Minnesota’s recycling facility in the Southeast Como neighborhood with Recycling Coordinator John McKeown.
We know that plastic is everywhere and has taken a place in modern life that’s only natural. Plastics are boons to medicine, delivering sterility, preservation and aid in transplants and prosthetics. Nevertheless, consuming far too much plastic worldwide is not vital, but flippant.
