On February 24th, 2022, Russia invaded neighboring Ukraine. Since the invasion, thousands have died, with millions more uprooted and forced to flee their homes. This has led to a robust discussion regarding Russia’s motivations for invading Ukraine, including fears over NATO expansion and Ukraine’s interest in Western institutions, the democratization of Ukraine, and the expansion of Russian borders. Thus far, diplomatic negotiations have not ended the war, and the intensity of the day-to-day conflict continues to rise.

With deteriorating neighborhoods, growing slums, aging housing, and rampant pollution, we face an urban crisis.

In 1854 President Franklin Pierce faced a critical choice, one that would determine the fate of his presidency and have a profound impact on the future of the United States. Should he support the Kansas-Nebraska proposal, which gave local settlers the right to determine whether or not slavery would be permitted? Should he maintain the Missouri Compromise, which banned slavery in these territories?
