Tracey Hamilton on Haniyyah Sharpe’s article calling for more organizations on campus for non-traditional students on Oct. 6 at 8:43 a.m.
Great point. Hopefully Ms. Sharpe’s opinion will prompt some creative suggestions to support the “not-so-average” student.
Jess on other methods to get alcohol into the body on Oct. 7 at 10:12 a.m.
Just so everyone knows, you can use any spirit for the tampon method not just vodka, I suggest tequila.
ESNA44 on her experience as a RN for Temple Hospital on Oct. 9 at 9:28 a.m.
I have been an Rn for almost 23 years, the last 5 of which have been here at Temple Hospital. Never in all my years as a nurse have I felt more undervalued or taken advantage of by administration than since joining this institution. I feel as if I have to be on my guard in protecting my professional license on a daily basis, yet still provide the best patient care I am able to give. I feel as if the members of the two bargaining units are not really asking for anything we dont already have in our contracts (which administrators seem to take delight in breaking)… we all know the economy is rough. We simply want the respect and safety we feel we deserve!
Observer on The Temple News’ decision to run Sarah Sander’s controversial column entitled, “Drinkers toast to new below-the-belt boozing” on Oct. 7 at 1:51 a.m.
What is the goal of The Temple News? Answer that and I am sure that you will discover this story barely attains to the standards of what a collegiate newspaper sets out to do for it’s students, faculty, administration and community members. Find better news to cover and have the editor do their job. I won’t even get into the horrific job this paper does at quoting people and using reliable sources because that has nothing to do with this article. But I don’t even know how this story made it out of someone’s mouth at a planning meeting, much less to print. So please, bring this up at dinner. Just be sure to turn your head away from the table before vomiting over your food.
H. Winkler on readers’ comments that Sarah Sanders’ “At the Dinner Table” column was too disturbing for print on Oct. 8 at 12:45 p.m.
I for one am glad The Temple News tried to step out of its comfort zone for once. No writer really has an idea of how many people are reading him/her until they get angry hate mail. I guess this is one way to gauge readers, as ungrateful as they are.Take a look at the traditional news values all journalists are supposed to abide by. This article introduces a trend, explains how it’s relevant to Temple students, and it’s an undiscussed topic, which is also a newsworthy reason to put something in a paper. It’s unfortunate that she couldn’t talk to any students because that would have bolstered her column, but who would want to be on record talking about openly doing this? Just because you and some Temple faculty didn’t like the article doesn’t mean it shouldn’t have been put in print. Get over yourself.
Angie on the FDA banning flavored cigarettes on Oct. 8 at 9:56 a.m.
I am a 35 year old adult and have been smoking on and off since i was 17. There were clove cigs and other flavors then but who can afford to pay so much more for the flavored cigs when your a teenager and i still mostly preferred marlboro reds to them anyway. As an adult now i prefer the chocolate. For the past 5 years i have smoked the chocolate flavored cigaretts and i tell you that i smoke alot less of them than the regular cigaretts. They fullfill my taste for nicotine better. I am very disapointed about the ban of flavored cigaretts and wish there was something to do about it. WHen i smoked marlboro reds i smoked up to 10 packs a week. When i started smoking the chocolate flavored i smoke around 3 to 4 packs a week. that is every seven days for both.
