Johns Hopkins University and Health System wields significant economic power in Baltimore. As of 2014, it holds property in the city worth almost $50 billion, employs tens of thousands of local residents and has paid about $10 million to the city in payments in lieu of taxes since 2010. Yet with 22.1 percent of Baltimore residents living in poverty, many people have scrutinized the disparity between the University’s wealth and the economic hardship experienced in the neighborhoods around many of its campuses.
Lady Gaga’s “Born This Way” is a bop — it topped charts in 25 countries and became one of the best-selling singles of all time. It’s also a monumental LGBTQ anthem in which Gaga embraces her bisexuality and affirms other LGBTQ identities, singing “I’m beautiful in my way / ‘Cause God makes no mistakes / I’m on the right track, baby I was born this way.”
Growing up, I always hated my body. I was fat, and I was not happy about it. I hated eating in public because I felt embarrassed. Shopping for clothes was a nightmare, and whatever I ended up with would still be too tight in some places and too baggy in others. I worried that I’d never be able to get girls.
Anyone who knows me knows that Roxane Gay is my favorite writer. She sits atop the list of people I would invite to a fantasy dinner party, followed by Serena Williams and Jaden Smith. I sometimes wonder about the nature of her oft-subtweeted nemesis. And I’ve now heard her live more than any of my favorite musical acts — which is to say, twice.
Every single minute of every single day I feel like I’m walking around with a massive jug of scalding hot water balanced on my head. I’m afraid to spill a little tiny bit of that water because the whole jug will start to fall and burn the people around me.
The News-Letter is proud to introduce a new series: Opposing Viewpoints. This space is for students with diverse perspectives to answer pertinent questions in conversation with each other.
Electric scooter companies have introduced thousands of scooters to cities without getting government permission, sparking nationwide controversy. Baltimore approved a six-month pilot program with two such companies, Bird and Lime, in August.
Anyone who knows me knows that I’m a cowboy, through and through. I may not have moved to Texas until I was seven, but I come from strong country stock. I love to say ridiculous things like hootenanny and y’all’ll. My senior prom was in a barn. I own a cowboy hat signed by Mike Lee and Justin McBride, two world-famous bull riders.
The humanities at Hopkins are undervalued. It’s as simple as that. I know it, you know it and University President Ronald J. Daniels knows it.
Lately I’ve been listening to a lot of old Lady Gaga. It’s crazy for me to think that The Fame came out over a decade ago now. Even Artpop, which doesn’t feel like an old album, dropped five years ago.
I found out about the Madonnari Arts Festival in a pretty unusual way. I was just trolling around online looking for gay stuff happening in Baltimore to include in LGBTQ Life’s weekly email. I’m not sure why Madonnari, an annual street art festival in Little Italy, was listed on an LGBTQ calendar, but it piqued my interest.
A year ago, Nicki Minaj was untouchable.
Melissa Hyatt, a 20-year veteran of the Baltimore Police Department (BPD), joined the University as the vice president for security in April. Her appointment followed an increase in security operations due to rising crime rates around the Homewood Campus, along with plans to create a private police force that University officials announced in March.
When I’m in Baltimore, I say I’m from Texas. When I’m not in Baltimore, I say I’m from Baltimore. Texas is a good place to be from, not a good place to be.
Around 100 Baltimore activists traveled to Washington, D.C. to join thousands of counter-protestors at Sunday’s Unite the Right 2 rally, the follow-up to last year’s deadly white supremacist demonstration in Charlottesville, Va.
Craig Hankin enrolled at Hopkins as a pre-med undergraduate in 1972. That first semester, he bombed his chemistry and calculus midterms and switched his major to History of Art.
I am not a poet. My ideal afternoon of writing does not include hours spent agonizing over the meter of each word, the rhythm of each line, wondering whether a close rhyme is close enough to work or if I need to scrap it entirely.
Federal judge, John Bates, ruled on Tuesday that protections for the children of undocumented immigrants must remain in place and that the Trump administration must resume taking applications for the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program.
Hopkins surgeons carried out the most complicated penile transplant ever performed in a 14-hour operation at the end of last month. Their patient, a U.S. army soldier, sustained traumatic genital injuries while serving in Afghanistan.
