Compared to the rest of the United States, Texas can seem like a country unto itself. Not only is it incredibly large, but it embodies a geographically fluctuating mixture of Deep South, Latinx, and Indigenous cultures, combined with various modern progressive ideologies and a Louisianian influence along the Gulf Coast. Because of its great diversity, Texas culture can be difficult to understand from an outside perspective. Likewise, Texans might have trouble integrating into places other than their home. This creates a type of unspoken alliance between Texans all around the world, and it can be seen in our own college community.
On Tuesday, the fifth of February, the Berkshire chapter of the Sunshine Movement held a casual viewing of a Green New Deal discussion. Composed of various chapters, the Sunrise Movement spans the entire length of the nation and has devoted itself to “stop climate change and create millions of good paying jobs across the nation.” Sunrise implements the increasingly common practice of spreading awareness through social media and various forms of community outreach. By distributing power equally among the organizations members, the Sunrise Movement markets itself as completely democratic.
Upon reaching out to Emmett for an interview, he suggested we meet in his studio located in the basement of the Lecture Center. If you’ve ever been to the basement of the Lecture Center, you know it is basically a dungeon; it is the darkest place I have ever been to. If it weren’t for the faint tapping of a drum set behind a door, I might never have found Emmett and his wonderful studio, plastered with an assortment of posters, notably one with a crocodile screaming, “You can go to hell!”
I knew the dame was trouble when she knocked on my door. “Hey there, Joe”, she said, “I got a problem you could maybe help with.”
“Out of all the private dicks on the Rock, why would you go to me?” I say, and she says “well, you live right next door.” And I don’t want to take this job, because I have better things to do with my Saturdays than solve some dame’s trivial problem, but her logic is fairly sound and plus I could use the money. So I go “What sort of problem are we talking here? You want pictures? Murder solved? No one pissed on the bathroom floor again, did they?”.
I cannot make any specific judgments as to why this happens, but it has, the same, each of the two years I have been here, and will likely continue to affect you until the snow starts to melt. So, I am going to offer my advice from someone unqualified, who also feels the same thing

The Jaguars have gone from 12-4 and a few plays away from Superbowl LII to 5-11 and the cellar of the AFC South yet again. During the preseason, many pundits were picking the Jags to make the Superbowl, riding the backs of one of the best defensive units in the league in 2017. The Jags defense wasn’t the problem though, finishing 2nd against the pass and 5th in total defense this year. The offense, however, is a different story, and it all started in the 2018 offseason.
