Off the Clock – Columbia College's Girls Who Game Event Connects Teen Girls to Electronic Sports

Fri, 17 Nov 2017 23:00:00 +0000

Allison Simmons is 13 years old, but she’s been playing video games since she was 7. She meets other gamers online all the time, and she maintains friendships with some of them. But, she said, it’s not so easy to find people her own age that like the game as much as she does. That’s one of the reasons Allison decided to go to Columbia College’s Girls Who Game event in September. The event was for girls ages 12 to 14 who are interested in gaming and game design. The girls played games in the campus’ “Gaming Hut,” which is also home to the Columbia College eSports team.

GEORGE KENNEDY: Steps Have Been Taken After 2015 Protests, But More Must Be Done

Fri, 17 Nov 2017 20:55:38 +0000

The destructive effects of the Concerned Student 1950 protest at our university two years ago are obvious and quantifiable. Enrollment is down. State support has diminished. Public perception is negative. The positive effects are only now emerging. Whether they will, in the end, outweigh the negatives is the important question that only time can answer. Well, time and lots of hard work. Read the complete column online at the Missourian .

Global Journalist: Zimbabwe, South Africa in Transition

Fri, 17 Nov 2017 03:52:33 +0000

Two figures have dominated the politics of southern Africa in recent years. One is Zimbabwe’s 93-year-old President Robert Mugabe. The other is South Africa’s 75-year-old President Jacob Zuma. Now Mugabe is in military custody after an apparent coup d’etat brought an end to his 37-year rule. Meanwhile Zuma is set to be replaced as the leader of the ruling African National Congress next month, and may be forced to step down from his eight-year-old presidency before the end of his term in 2019. On this edition of Global Journalist, a look at southern Africa in transition.

‘I Wish I Could Spend the Rest of My Life in a Hospital, Because at Least People Care’

Thu, 16 Nov 2017 21:31:01 +0000

Robert Nickles lives in Columbia. He was recently diagnosed with lung cancer and has undergone numerous medical procedures throughout his life - including a colostomy. But there’s a major barrier standing between Robert and a healthy existence: Robert is homeless. In his own words, he has lived a life that “most people wouldn’t understand.” Robert spoke with KBIA’s Jonah McKeown about the stigma surrounding homelessness and about the barriers he faces getting healthcare. Missouri Health Talks gathers Missourians’ stories of access to healthcare in their own words. You can view more conversations at .

Views of the News: Is The Media Stirring The Pot?

Wed, 15 Nov 2017 21:20:19 +0000

Is the media stirring the pot? Is the coverage of the sex scandals – now rocking entertainment, journalism and politics – potentially destroying innocent lives? In our attempts to listen to and be supportive of accusers are we denying the accused due process or benefit of the doubt? We’ll debate. Also, Donald Trump Jr.’s communication with WikiLeaks, why the New York Times is suing a woman who identified herself as one of the paper’s reporters and Simpsons’ fans, it’s time to talk about Apu.

Commentary: Soccer and Foreign Policy

Tue, 14 Nov 2017 22:45:00 +0000

President Trump’s Asia trip makes me think of – soccer. I love soccer. Columbia College has two nationally-ranked teams and I’m a big fan. I help my daughter coach a recreation league team here in Columbia that my granddaughters and grandson play on. I coached youth soccer for many years when we lived in Kirksville. So the pathetic failure of the U.S. men’s National team to qualify for next year’s World Cup by losing to Trinidad-Tobago, one of the worst teams in the world, is galling on many fronts. My soccer-loving family won’t get to enjoy watching the USA play next year. Worse, thousands of American youth will lose interest in soccer and return to their video games. And this is about politics how, you ask? Thank you for your patience. American soccer and American foreign policy have divergent, almost opposite histories. During the fifty-year period when American foreign policy was robust and coherent, USA soccer was awful. With the two odd exceptions of 1930, when the U.S. actually

GEORGE KENNEDY: Two Years After Campus Protests, it's Time to Lift the Burden of History

Tue, 14 Nov 2017 22:23:28 +0000

Two years ago, our university’s racist history caught up with us. Weeks of growing tension came to a head on Nov. 9, 2015, when President Tim Wolfe and Chancellor Bowen Loftin resigned. We’re still grappling with the repercussions of the Concerned Student 1950 protest. While it’s pretty clear in retrospect what happened and why it happened, I suspect I’m not alone in still trying to understand just how the institution has changed as a result. Those realities and that uncertainty are my topics this week and next. Read the complete column online at the Missourian .
