My Midwestern accent is far more than what it seems

(02/18/19 10:44pm)

Sylvania, Ohio, is so small that you have probably never heard of it before. A suburb of Toledo, Sylvania is rather unassuming. And what’s significant about Toledo? It’s four hours from Chicago, an hour south of Detroit and 90 minutes from Canada. But for my childhood self, Toledo was my everything. You might be wondering, “Well, Ari, you just said that the only desirable aspect of Toledo is how fast you can get away to be in a more exciting place.” Yes, but when I moved to Atlanta, I found out that Toledo is much more than its proximity to other places.

FERGUSON: Virginia’s Democratic leadership has failed the Commonwealth

(02/18/19 4:25am)

Within the scope of a week, all three of Virginia’s top Democratic leaders became mired in scandal. Gov. Ralph Northam’s (D) comments on abortion and racist epithets and photographs found in his yearbooks have caused politicians and voters across Virginia and the nation to call for his resignation. Among those was Attorney General Mark Herring (D), who himself confessed to donning blackface in 1980 at a party while attending the University. Meanwhile, Justin Fairfax (D) is accused by Vanessa Tyson and Meredith Watson of sexual assault and rape. These revelations have impaired their ability to lead, and yet they hold onto power out of apparent self-interest. These revelations themselves are concerning. However, the response at national level, particularly from Democrats, also contributes to the damage that Northam’s, Fairfax’s and Herring’s choices have caused. The shame that has engulfed Virginia politics has exposed the hypocrisy plaguing the progressive cause. This hypocrisy has impaired leaders of the liberal movement’s ability to advocate against issues including race and sexual assault.

EDITORIAL: The University’s hospital must disavow Paul Barringer and his legacy

(02/14/19 2:42am)

Both the City of Charlottesville and the University are frequently condemned for failing to sufficiently address the blatant racism that has plagued the community for centuries. From Confederate statues to the names of various parks, community members have recently begun to hold the City and University accountable for the pervasive culture of racism that makes many feel unsafe and unwelcome. This includes renaming buildings that continue to honor the legacy of those who spread prejudice in the community, such as the recent calls to rename Alderman library due to President Edwin A. Alderman’s promotion of eugenics. 

Exploring privilege through “7 rings”

(02/15/19 2:08am)

Let’s face it — we all aspire to create a life for ourselves that makes others jealous or a life that we can rub in the face of our haters and competitors. Just ask Ariana Grande, who recently dropped her newest album that features the hit song “7 rings.” As the song suggests, we all are motivated by the idea of proving someone else wrong and finally being able to capture the life we all really want. Perhaps even to say we are “motivated” is too soft — we thrive off the idea of “making it.” 

Update of Charlottesville’s zoning ordinances and comprehensive plan could take up to 3 years

(02/15/19 2:11am)

The City of Charlottesville began the process of updating its comprehensive plan for the first time in five years and the zoning codes for the City for the first time in 15 years in fall 2018. Although the process of revising the City’s comprehensive plan is legally controlled by the City’s Planning Commission, which is made up of seven voting members, the City has decided to bring in an outside consultant to help with the project as well.

(02/18/19 4:01am)

The Social Media section plays a major role in disseminating Cavalier Daily articles — the majority of page views come from Facebook or Twitter links. However, the section can run more smoothly in cases of emergency and increase accountability among the readership by streamlining protocols and processes on corrections.

BLANK: Time to play Jay

(02/13/19 4:03am)

When he committed to the Cavaliers, Jay Huff was an under-the-radar prospect — Virginia had been one of his first official scholarship offers — but for those who knew him, Huff was defined by limitless potential. It is not often a seven-footer with a three point shot comes to Charlottesville, let alone one who had been receiving interest from Duke, as Huff had.
