CU Boulder’s Muslim Community Reacts To Punish A Muslim Day

During March, fliers headlined “Punish a Muslim day 3rd April 2018” reached Muslim communities in Colorado. Originating in London and mimicking the same delivery style, the anonymously sent fliers were left outside mosques and religious centers. The inciting message detailed a point system: the worse the crime, the higher the points. Almost 17 years after 9/11, Muslims in the U.S. continue to encounter xenophobia and hate crimes. Muslims and Muslim immigrants in general are largely successful i

Gigi Buffon’s 'Garbage Bin' Referee Makes Quick Return To EPL Action

Michael Oliver, the referee who took a stand and freed Narnia from the evil grasp of Sauron, returned to Premier League duty on Monday in a 1-1 draw between West Ham United and Stoke City. Okay, fine, Oliver didn’t fight any orcs or free Narnia, but the man did end Gianluigi Buffon’s dreams of winning the Champions league. Oliver sparked controversy after red-carding Buffon once the shot-stopping, brick wall of a goalkeeper got a bit too touchy. The call also sealed the Juventus veteran’s fate

Will Peru Do To World Cup 2018 What Leicester Did To The EPL In 2016?

For the first time since 1982, 36 years later, Peru will be playing in the FIFA 2018 World Cup. But we all know that story and, frankly, defeating New Zealand isn’t that special. Sorry, Kiwis. What is more shocking than that is Peru’s latest streak of record-breaking success which, despite the country’s current political climate and doping national team captain, might earn them a decent spot in the World Cup. Or they could win it, why not? Here’s Peru’s World Cup qualifying goal against New Zea

Boring, Boring Man United As The Reds Go Marching Out, Out, Out

On Tuesday, Manchester United were scraped off the Champions League roster the same way a disgruntled toddler tosses away an old, broken toy: with no remorse. The toy, like the Red Devils, deserved it. The toddler, you wonder? Jose Mourinho. Then again, Manchester United is not Toys “R” Us. We can’t just toss it away and forget about it. It’s a monumental part of the beautiful game, but instead of being a citadel for soccer excellence, as it once was, it is now a parody of its former self. The

Landon Donovan Is Right, American Talent Is Being Ruined By Club Negligence

At first there was the phenomenon of the Hollywood player, when the likes of David Beckham and Thierry Henry migrated to the world of American soccer. No need to mention Zlatan here, that’s just sad, isn’t it? These larger-than-life players spending their final playing days on MLS pitches was entertaining, but not alarming. They didn’t barricade entry to other players — namely young, talented American players. The clubs did. These big names didn’t hinder the rise of young stars. Landon Donovan

Dear Chelsea, You Have Too Many Cooks In The Kitchen

Back in February, it was the humiliating 4-1 loss to Watford that was deemed the low point of Antonio Conte’s stewardship of Chelsea FC, but on Easter Sunday, Chelsea conceded a 3-1 defeat at Stamford Bridge to Tottenham — Spurs’ first victory at the Bridge in 28 years. It’s one that will surely define the spiraling Conte era in Chelsea history. The bitter loss led to Chelsea falling out of the top four race, a failure Conte will not face alone. Along with their Italian manager, Chelsea’s hiera

Slovakian courage trumps government corruption

On the 9th of March, Slovakia witnessed its biggest protest since the communism-ousting Velvet Revolution of 1989. Tens of thousands, the Guardian reports, assembled in the Slovak National Uprising Square to attempt to pressure Prime Minister Robert Fico’s government into resignation. The country is in an uproar after the murders of journalist Ján Kuciak and his fiancee Martina Kušnírová. The two 27-year-olds were killed in their house east of Bratislava. The murders are suspected to be in reta

We need accountability journalism now more than ever

We often neglect reading a journalist’s name on an article, we may even neglect to remain informed and not read the article at all. Throughout daily life, the name Ronan Farrow means nothing. In my adventures as a journalist, on the other hand, that name means a lot. But why should you care who he is and why do we need more journalists like him? If life were a Western, preferably excluding Clint Eastwood, Farrow would be the sheriff-gone-rogue, while the likes of Harvey Weinstein and Donald Tru
