Scoop’s Corner: The common cold is getting old

Well it happened: I finally got sick. I’m not sure what it was, but the Tuesday after spring break, my throat hurt, I was exhausted, and I had a stuffy nose and headache. By Wednesday, I was coughing my lungs out. Thursday, I left one of my classes early because I wasn’t feeling well. I probably should have rested more during the weekend, but I had a ton of homework and a supply of Advil so nothing was going to stop me except pure and utter exhaustion.

job involves answering and routing phone calls from citizens to the various departments housed in City Hall. One citizen, an eccentric old man with a great need to have dialogue with someone about something, calls the City of Arvada government offices repeatedly – as in, at least four times a week. My mom patiently helps him out every time he calls, and about a month ago, the man was so overwhelmed with gratitude for my mom’s help that he drove to City Hall to give my mom what he claimed was a “signed, numbered original” of a famous artist’s pencil drawing of Jesus’ face.

Islamic Awareness Week raises questions about diversity

Samantha Cooper
News Editor

Goucher held its very first Islamic Awareness Week from March 25 to March 28. The week included a four-day event that involved a student panel, two guest speakers, and a film screening. First year student Samer Salem said he organized the event because there was “a lot of misguided anti-Islamic rhetoric [on campus],” he said. “I researched every college I applied to, but I knew it was going to be an issue on campus beforehand, and I still chose to attend for specific reasons. However, knowing it is an issue and being within the community are two different things … though I told myself I’m not allowed to complain because I was aware of the problem.”

Inc. for a $3.8 billion liquefied natural gas (LNG) export facility in Cove Point, Md. Dominion, a company based out of Richmond, Va., is one of the biggest producers and transporters of energy in the United States. They currently own an LNG import facility in Cove Point, and would like to further develop it into a fully functioning export facility. Natural gas, a fossil fuel found deep underground that consists mainly of methane, is touted as a cleaner burning fuel in comparison to coal or oil, yet there is some controversy about this source of energy. Natural gas is extracted from the ground by hydraulic fracturing (“fracking”), a process of pumping a mixture of water, sand, and chemicals into a fracking well at very high pressure and exploding the layers of rock so natural gas trapped within the rock can escape and be captured aboveground. This drilling practice and the development needed for it have been known to pollute drinking water sources like ponds or aquifers with chemicals and methane, pollute the air surrounding the drilling wells with toxic gases, deteriorate local roads, and otherwise harm or endanger local people’s well-being and livelihoods. The proposed LNG export facility would depend on this harmful drilling practice, and also require pipelines, compressor stations, and its own power plant to fuel the liquefaction of the gas.
