Wednesday, May 7, 2014

By William Rickards

When President Obama said in his State of the Union address in January that women make 77 cents to the dollar that men make, and compared some workplace policies in America to the show Mad Men, it was not without a deal of fact checking and blow back. From CBS to even the extremely liberal Huffington Post (who framed the article around one study done by feminists to disprove the statistic) the statistic was largely hailed as an exaggeration at best.

As summer approaches, many students will be anticipating their summer vacations. Whether it’s visiting family, sightseeing a new city, or relaxing by the beach, odds are they will be spending some time under the sun. 

But if students don’t use enough sunscreen, they are putting themselves at risk for developing a deadly skin cancer, known as melanoma. 

According to the Skin Cancer Foundation, “Melanoma has risen for the amount of people aged from 18 to 39 over the past 40 years and the rates grew by 800 percent among young women and 400 percent among young men.”
