*Spoilers for the HBO series “Watchmen” ahead*
According to separate rankings by U.S. News and World Report and the CollegeNet Social Mobility Index, the University falls in the bottom 15 percent of institutions in terms of social mobility for its students. Social mobility can be a difficult term to define, but broadly speaking, social mobility is the ability of an individual to move from one class to another, whether that is upwards or downwards.
The Federal Communications Commission announced their plan to fully repeal former President Obama’s 2015 net neutrality decision in late 2017, and soon after were met with deafening fanfare and outrage from critics across the nation. These activists found success inciting the public by leveraging trite boogeymen and hackneyed, fear-mongering tactics — demonizing the “big cable companies” who purportedly wanted nothing more than to make life a living hell for their consumers. We all remember the viral tweets prophesying the end of the internet as we know it — but the proposed repeal quickly came and went, and none of the foretold doomsday scenarios ended up materializing whatsoever. In fact, I would assert that the internet is healthier and faster now than it has ever been, and we owe it all to the astute decision-making and bold leadership of FCC Chairman Ajit Pai.
I have worked at the University for 20 years. For the first time, I feel I truly belong.
During yet another stress-filled finals season, students were once again forced into unhealthy, often binge-centered habits in order to survive the last few assignments separating them from winter break. Every year students pack into Clemons Library, where they consume higher levels of caffeine to get through an excruciatingly long week of exams and papers. Much of this is fostered by the University’s stress culture — a common state of academic competitiveness that encourages unhealthy behavior and poses significant threats to mental wellness.
The Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine — a national nonprofit with more than 12,000 doctors — filed a federal complaint last week against the University for their use of live animals in general surgery resident training.
The fall season was a memorable one for Virginia sports. From winning championships and rivalry games to making postseason runs, Virginia teams have certainly stood out. With the fall season wrapping up, the CD sports staff reflects on some key questions that need to be answered.

Early this month, London hosted the 2019 North Atlantic Treaty Organization Summit, a meeting of the Western Coalition’s leaders and figures. Heads of state from all over the world, including the United States, met to discuss the future of the Cold War-era alliance on its 70th anniversary. The alliance has been fending off multiple threats, including Russia, terrorism and the Trump administration throughout its existance.

Our house is on fire, and President Donald Trump is adding fuel — literally. As a climate change skeptic and carbon lover, our president’s power and money are deeply invested in the fossil fuel industry. Last month, just a couple of years after the Paris Climate Agreement was approved by the vast majority of nations, Trump formally initiated America’s withdrawal. After one year, it will become official. If Trump succeeds in removing the U.S. from the Paris Climate Agreement, our economy and national safety will progressively weaken.
No. 1 men’s soccer defeated ACC rival No. 9 Wake Forest under a torrential rain Friday night to advance to the NCAA championship game. The Cavaliers (21-1-1, 6-1-1 ACC) edged the Demon Deacons (16-5-2, 6-2-0 ACC) with the help of two goals from sophomore forward Daryl Dike, despite a late penalty-kick conversion by the Demon Deacons.

In the final year of the decade, Oxford Dictionary has announced the word of the year — climate emergency. According to NASA, the world has seen a global rise in temperature, sinking ice sheets, sea level rise and extreme weather events. As people become more aware of the effects of climate change, Willis Jenkins, the convener of Environmental Humanities at the University and co-director of Coastal Futures Conservatory, anticipates an increased urgency in the climate crisis conversation over the next decade.
In the Nahuatl language, “flower and song” is nearly synonymous to poetry — “in xochitl in cuicatl.” Fernando Valverde, a native Spanish speaker, literary icon and distinguished visiting professor, believes the value of life comes not from wealth, but from these two simple components. From reading poetry written by others to writing his own poetry, Valverde has found remarkable success in his journey to become exactly what he thinks a poet is — a nightingale singing in the darkness.
The first half of the recently-released third season of “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel” suffers from stagnant character development and an overreliance on showy setpieces in place of plot progression. Filled with the quickfire dialogue and active tracking shots now characteristic of creator Amy Sherman-Palladino, season three starts off by moving quickly to nowhere. Even with the show’s title character Midge (Rachel Brosnahan) leaving New York to tour with Shy Baldwin (Leroy McClain) — a fictional character reminiscent of trailblazing pop icons like Chuck Berry and Harry Belafonte — there is a lack of stakes that the lavish shots of mob-run Las Vegas cannot make up for. The circling of previously explored dynamics comes to a head as the fourth episode “Hands!” ends with a reunion that Midge and the show have been trying to move on from since the pilot.
