OPINION: UNCW’s new campus fee increases are minuscule but necessary
Nicolas Ziccardi, Assistant Opinion Editor • April 29, 2021
While this issue may not seem significant on the surface, the fee increase is emblematic of the cultural and political environment we are living in today. Arguably, the two largest topics that faced the nation last year and continue to do so are the pandemic and police reform, so it is hardly surprising that the university has chosen to raise an extra $335,688 for both.

REVIEW: 'Stowaway ' is a lifeless anomaly devoid of charm and complexity
Boyce Rucker, Contributing Writer • April 29, 2021
“Stowaway” follows a space team that consists of medical researcher Zoe (Anna Kendrick),  ship captain Marina (Toni Collette) and biologist David (Daniel Dae Kim) as they embark on a two-year space mission to Mars. Sharing good camaraderie with one another, the team collaborates and functions well enough to have a well-thought plan and strategic use of resources that will ensure their survival throughout the mission. However, their mission is placed in jeopardy due to the discovery of a stowaway onboard named Michael (Shamier Anderson).

Members of the Multi-faith Anti-Racism Change and Healing Group celebrate at 38th and Chicago after the verdict was read in the murder trial of former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin, Tuesday, April 20, 2021 in Minneapolis.
OPINION: The Chauvin conviction marks the end of the beginning, not the beginning of the end
Jacob Sawyer, Staff Writer • April 24, 2021
Derek Chauvin, the officer who killed Floyd, was found guilty of murder Tuesday and hauled off to prison, possibly for decades. The Black community and its allies joyously poured into America’s streets in celebration, relieved that they can now begin to heal from the trauma of both the killing and trial. Many consider the case a turning point in U.S. policing as well as the country overall, but much more and harder work remains ahead.

Humans of the Dub: End of Year Traditions
January 6, 2021
What makes me happy now is making Christmas special for others. It’s not just about getting gifts but giving people things and seeing them react to that. I have a sister, I like to spoil her, and it’s a great time to give back to my parents. As kids we couldn’t give our parents things and now that I’m more mature and can afford things, I like to show my appreciation for them by making it a nice Christmas.
