What Happened to the Other Parties?
I came from a family of Republicans. They were obsessed with elephants. I laugh about it now. I always registered as an Independent until I had discovered the Libertarian party, then I had registered that way. When I became a felon in 2018, my voting privilege became suspended. When I updated my driver's license, the question of voting came up and I knew not which party to choose so I skipped it. The options I wanted (Green, Libertarian, or Independent) were not listed. If my option isn't there, why should I choose something that is not accurate?Shanon Marie Clare Angermeyer NormanPublished about 7 hours ago in The Swamp

Imran khan ,full name Imran Ahmad Khan Naizi born on 5 Octuber 1952 in lahore ,Pakistan.He was once a Pakistani cricket player (team captain) who won the heart of people by winning a world cup in 1992 against England.He is also the 22nd Prime minister of Pakistan from August 2018 until April 2022, a founder and chairmen of pti (Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf ). From the day IK join politics he is facing alot of difficulties but never loses hope he is becoming the craze of Pakistani nation because all the recent politicans just use our motherland for there own self benefits .According to a report by fox news Point,the most corrupt prime minister in the entire world was Nawaz sharif .He was dismissed and disqualified for corruption charges.Sharif family and Zardari family ,both are well known gangsters and both had been in power and ruined the country .Still they are the main hindrance in way of Imran khan they are letting Imran khan to rule on Pakistan .Imran Khan has become the first Pakistani prime minister to be removed from office after losing a no-confidence vote in parliament.that no-confidence vote was led by the opposition parties, the Pakistan Muslim League – Nawaz (PML-N) and the Pakistan People’s Party (PPP). Some key figures are the current Prime Minister Muhammad Shehbaz Sharif (leader of PML-N), Bilawal Bhutto-Zardari, and Asif Ali Zardari (heads of PPP). Khan has been harsh on the opposition, calling them “a gang of thieves,” threatening to expose their corruption and claim accountability, and the no-confidence vote was seen as an attempt to save themselves.However, the opposition pointed to Khan’s weak performance during his time as Prime Minister, with spiraling inflation and a massive devaluation of the rupee. Additionally, Khan has been criticized for appointing Usman Buzdar as Chief Minister in the Punjab province, who later was accused of widespread corruption. The opposition eventually won the no-confidence vote against Khan in April, as dozens of party members defected and some key allies voted against him. Yet, critical voices point to the army as the decisive actor who tipped the scales to the point that resulted in Khan’s removal, as Khan lost its support during his time as Prime Minister.hassan hashmiPublished about 11 hours ago in The Swamp

HBCUs Should Recruit Anti-Racist Faculty
The prevailing thought in the Black community is that Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) are safe spaces where Black students get a perhaps once-in-a-lifetime chance to not be a marginalized minority; to experience a discrimination-free higher education; and to be treated as a human-being, as opposed to struggling through the typical “learning-while-Black” experience. This feel-good image of HBCUs was somewhat diminished following two racially-charged incidents at the end of 2022.Clare Xanthos
The Metaverse: Our Digital Downfall?
