Stress, disappointment, frustration and anger are all words that can describe the emotions felt by New York Giants fans over the past decade.

The Giants have been a complete disaster, having
missed the playoffs every year since 2016 while having ongoing concerns surrounding whether Daniel Jones is “the guy,” Saquon Barkley’s health or the offensive line’s ability to protect the quarterback.

But the 2022 season opener against the Tennessee
Titans sparked hope for a successful season for
Giants, due to an elite outing from Barkley and a gritty performance by the defense, as well as a gutsy but effective call from new head coach Brian Daboll.

Oil prices worldwide are set to increase as OPEC+ announced a reduction in oil production by 100,000 barrels per day.

Investors and consumers fear continuing troubles with inflation, China’s continuation of coronavirus-related restrictions, the increasing strength of the U.S. dollar and Russia’s weaponization of Europe’s energy supply — especially amid concerns of the winter energy shortage and a possible recession.

OPEC+ believes that the downward pressure on crude prices and the low cost of gasoline have been exaggerated, especially when faced with a lack of purchases during the COVID-19 pandemic and the resulting economic slowdown. OPEC+ aims to act in time to protect profits and market stability.

In response to the decision, the international market’s Brent crude oil traded at $95.54, going up 2.5%. The domestic market did not react well either, as West Texas Intermediate crude oil was priced at $89.16 a barrel, going up 2.6%.

In The Ticker’s Arts section, Caspar Gajewski writes an extensive review on Netflix’s original show, “Mo”:

“We carry on,” Yusra Najjar says to her son, the eponymous “Mo” in the new episodic dramedy.

“That’s what we do, us Palestinians. We carry on,” Najjar concludes, capping an extraordinary monologue that answers the show’s core dilemma: how to live as a people that are erased.

“Mo” is co-written by comics Mohammed Amer and Ramy Yousseff. Yousseff is the titular star of Hulu’s “Ramy,” which follows a jovial, hilarious, undocumented Palestinian-American Muslim living in the Alief neighborhood of Houston. The show follows as he navigates life and outside-of-the-faith love in the penumbra of a 22-year-old asylum request.

The series begins more than two decades after Mo and his mother, sister and brother fled Saddam Hussein’s 1990 invasion of Kuwait.

In the show, Palestine doesn’t exist, as far as the United States is concerned. Its people do, its authority does, but they and it reside in territories, not a country. These facts burden the show with unfair expectations of representation, but they hardly hamper it. As Arwa Mahdawi, who is of Palestinian heritage, wrote in The Guardian, “it’s a groundbreaking piece of television.”

After two years of the pandemic, the Lawrence N. Field Center for Entrepreneurship is back with its Open House with over 200 attendees from the Baruch College Community.

“The Field Center is such a hidden gem with so many free services and programs for students and the community,” Field Center Executive Director Marlene Leekang told The Ticker. “We feel like the open house is a great way to try to get the word out.”

Leekang also said that the center has something for everyone, regardless of their career path.

“Our goal is to be here for our student body,” she added. “Even if entrepreneurship is not their major, whatever they do will need the infusion of creativity and innovation and we can do that for them.”

Baruch College ranks first in numerous distinguished college reviews.

Degree Choices published its annual list of the “Best Colleges in the US,” a new college ranking system focusing on median economic output and opportunities for higher financial achievement. Degree Choices ranked Baruch first in the Best Colleges in New York 2022 list.

Baruch has also been consistently highlighted in The Princeton Review’s “The Best 388 Colleges,” a yearly college manual that connects more than 160,000 undergrad survey outcomes in the nation to rank what is special about these named schools.

Baruch ranked first in the northeast and eighth nationwide for "Best Value Colleges.”

According to The Princeton Review’s 2023 edition of “The Best 388 Colleges," listing Baruch in these popularly known categories was due largely in part to Baruch providing top-quality education and career opportunities.

Imperialist “Murder & Torture Inc.” Targets Baruch: A Threat to Us All

Brutal Arrest of Red Fawn The Planted Gun

On Oct. 27th, 2016 the police raided the 1851 Treaty Camp near Standing Rock, ND. Officers targeted Red Fawn Fallis, tackled her, and threw her to the ground. While she was pinned to the ground, shots were fired.

This video shows that a gloved hand fired the shots.

Red Fawn was not wearing gloves, however the DAPL officers were wearing gloves.

North Carolina based TigerSwan supervised the arrest.

This video suggests a planted gun was used as federal court evidence.

Yelena Dzhanova and her staff did such a great job putting on this event from last night. Celebrating 85 years. We are so proud of you all! Enjoy the pix! :)
