A Ukrainian’s View of MH17

Today we feature a more personal account of MH17, from native Ukrainian Maryna Prykhodko. We would like to emphasize that her account is of her opinion only, and we fully understand its controversial nature.   What can I, a Ukrainian living in America, possibly have to say about the MH17 tragedy that hasn’t already been … Continue reading

Shout Out to NYU Model UN

I spent last Thursday through Sunday staffing for NYUMUNCV, a fun, fast-paced, stressful college Model UN conference. As veteran Model UN-ers know, the most difficult part of Model UN isn’t the months of prior research or speaking intelligently in front of a room of strangers on the spot. The hardest part is explaining to those … Continue reading

David Cameron and the European Union

David Cameron, Prime Minister of the United Kingdom, promised a referendum that would allow Britons to express their approval or disapproval of Britain’s membership in the European Union. This seemingly harmless promise is actually a way for Cameron to appease rightwing conservatives in his party, as well as a strategy to keep the UK Independence Party (UKIP)— devoted solely … Continue reading

Yes, I Am Talking About the Oscars Over Ukraine

It seemed largely appropriate to talk about the Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, but given the recent nature of the events, it was not appropriate to ponder on unfinished circumstances. Perhaps as more unfolds in the next few days, commentary on the situation will be more fitting. Onto the Oscars. Like millions of others around the … Continue reading
