April 29, 2014
About a month after taking office, the newly elected Undergraduate Student Government administration has been accused by a former USG member of unconstitutionally passing a resolution.

According to the brief, which was obtained by The Lantern, the legislation recommending senior staff appointments claimed to have originated in the Oversight Committee, as required by the USG Constitution. However, the brief states the resolution was passed before members of the Oversight Committee were appointed, making its… Read more

Opinion: Freshmen should take advantage of time at Ohio State

April 29, 2014
Dear freshmen, I hadn’t realized what I wanted to do before I came to Ohio State University. Life is filled with pressure, expectancies, judgments, opinions and sometimes failure in one or more of those categories. With your entire life ahead of you, how are you suppose to choose one direction? If anyone is indecisive, it’s me. I’ve taken 10 minutes just to decide what kind of bread I want at the grocery store before and I took nearly four years of college to decide what I wanted out of life. From day one, involvement was crucial. I couldn’t make the mistake of ending up with the wrong decision of what… Read more

Letter to the editor: Ohio State students should support Chinese workers on strike

April 29, 2014
Letter to the editor:   In Dongguan, China, nearly 50,000 workers employed by Yue Yuen – the world’s largest athletic shoe manufacturer, which contracts with apparel giants such as Nike and Adidas – have been on strike for the last three weeks in the biggest work stoppage in modern Chinese history. The workers called the strike because they believe the company has been substantially underpaying their social security payments over the last two decades. It is estimated that Yue Yuen owes its workers millions of US dollars in back social security payments. Since workers in Dongguan have started the strike, Yue Yuen workers throughout China have also gone on strike… Read more

Opinion: Former Ohio State cornerback Bradley Roby’s latest run-in with the law hurts his wallet, chances at being early NFL draft pick

April 25, 2014
It is somewhat ironic. Former Ohio State cornerback Bradley Roby, following a report that detailed his citation for operating a vehicle while impaired, tweeted he no longer trusts the media. “I have lost any respect I had left for the media. I take ownership in my part of it. But you run a story at least put out all fact…” Roby tweeted from his account, @BradRoby_1, Friday. Well, in under two weeks, NFL teams will have to make a decision as to whether or not they trust Roby enough to make him a first-round selection in the 2014 NFL Draft. Thus far, he hasn’t earned that trust. Formerly thought to… Read more
