National: Trump and North Korea Summit.

On June 12, Donald Trump and Kim Jong Un met in Singapore for a summit to discuss denuclearization in North Korea. It was the first summit meeting between an American president and a leader of North Korea. At the summit, Trump and Un signed a joint declaration that both countries will work toward denuclearization and peace in North Korea.

The joint declaration was vague and did not give a timeline as to when Un will dismantle his nuclear arsenal. In addition, during the summit there was no mention of addressing the human rights violations that have been occurring in North Korea.

Trump has acknowledged that nuclear disarmament will take a long time and has stated that other meetings will take place. Recently, Trump has decided to cancel Mike Pompeo’s meeting with North Korea. Trump claims that Pompeo will go to North Korea in the near future once the trade talks with China have been solved.

It is too early to celebrate or to admit defeat in North Korea. Most peace deals take years and sometimes even decades to transpire. As long as both sides continue to stay open to discussion, talks of peace could eventually effect change in the Korean peninsula.

Loyola: Loyola to start a new tradition with rumored homecoming this fall

There have been several rumors that Loyola University is planning on having a homecoming this fall. As a school without a football team, this seems like an interesting proposal from the university if it is to take place.

As a college without a football team, it seems as though we miss out on all of the extravagant activities in which many larger universities indulge. Having a  homecoming event seems like the perfect opportunity for Loyola to start a new tradition that will hopefully incite more school pride and create a stronger bond between current students and alumni.
