Exploring the diversity of disabilities
by Tessa Isis-Bahoosh
Snuggled away on the fourth floor of the Goddard library is a friendly little office that keeps its door ajar every weekday between 9:00 and 5:00, consciously cultivating a sense of openness and invitation. This is the home of the Office of Disability Services, and although over 240 Clark students take advantage of its resources, the general student population seems to know remarkably little about what it has to offer, representing a gap between students and services that Megan Jones, head of the new campus club, Diversability, aims to eradicate.

After an exhausting two and a half hour practice filled with sprints, new drills, new corners, and one-on-ones, all I want to do is eat everything in sight. I burned so many calories that I feel like I am going to faint. My hands, arms, and legs are starting to tremble; I need to eat something soon or things will go downhill really fast. I look at the time on my phone. 8:30 p.m. Crap. I sprint into the locker room as fast as I can, throw my gear into my locker, grab my stuff, throw on my shoes, and run out. I go to the training room to get some ice. It seems like it’s taking forever. 8:45. I don’t know if I am going to make it.
After getting ice wrapped on my knee, I try to get out of the Dolan as fast as I can, but all I can do is hobble. I waddle up Beaver Street as fast as I can, racing against the clock as if it is the final minutes in a championship game. 8:55. I am so close, almost there. 8:57. I made it, but of course, there is a huge line. I jump in line, hoping to get to the register in the three minutes I have left. I finally reach the register. 9:03. I lost the championship: swaps are over for the night.

Supreme Court to review capital punishment standards
by Jeremy Levine
The death penalty is a tricky thing. We, as a nation, have trusted people to decide whether or not certain other people live or die. That’s a pretty hefty responsibility, and it’s irreversible. Basically, we better get it right.

by Matt Emmer
