With many terrorist attacks happening worldwide recently, there are many questions regarding who are the real terrorists. Many claim that all Muslims are terrorists. Many disagree. Muslim countries such as Syria, Iran, Bahrain, Qatar, Tunisia, and Saudi Arabia have been blamed for being “terrorist countries.” Even with ISIS claiming responsibility for many of the recent terror attacks, such as the Minnesota Mall attack, ISIS are not orthodox Muslims. In the rules of Islam, you cannot murder or steal.  Even if they are Muslim, they would have to kill for a valid purpose in the true understanding of the faith. Islam is a religion of peace, not of terrorism nor violence. More…

I’m sure you’ve all heard the phrase, “Together, we’ll go far,” during Wells Fargo’s television commercial or on the radio. However, who would guess just how far they would go? Fabricated emails, counterfeit PIN numbers, bogus bank accounts. Crimes have been committed on numerous levels, causing them to fire 5,300 employees, who’ve been accused of these transgressions.

Of course, these are not the only workers who’ve lost their jobs to these ethical violations. Several employees attempted to report these encroachments, but they were fired shortly after that. The reason listed was often found to be “tardiness,” after the employees showed up less than five minutes late for work.

The investigation into these practices is ongoing, and there are sure to be more discoveries in the months to come.

Bullying isn’t okay; it isn’t funny. It isn’t cool or fun or trendy. We need to put an end to this, for these occurrences are becoming far too frequent.

Nine years can seem like an eternity, but to one West Virginia family, it’s not nearly enough. On September 10, nine-year-old Jackson Grubb took his own life after months of relentless bullying. Reportedly, the bullies would wait outside Jackson’s home so they could torment him more frequently. More…

Recently, some have been asking for a vegetarian option on In-N-Out’s hamburger menu. There has even been a petition on scpr.org to find out if the numbers support making a change to add a vegetarian option.

Big cats are beautifully exquisite creatures that everyone loves.  But sooner than you think, it may be the only way to see them is by looking at an old photo. The number of tigers in the wild has been declining for 80 years now, and they might be extinct in the next decade. 

Poaching, habitat loss, and fragmentation have reduced the global population of tigers from over 100,000 in the 1900′s, to less than 4,000 in the 1970′s. More…
