Allison Simmons is 13 years old, but she’s been playing video games since she was seven. She meets other gamers online all the time, and she maintains friendships with some of them. But, she said, it’s not so easy to find people her own age that like the game as much as she does.

Two figures have dominated the politics of southern Africa in recent years. One is Zimbabwe’s 93-year-old President Robert Mugabe. The other is South Africa’s 75-year-old President Jacob Zuma. Now Mugabe is in military custody after an apparent coup d’etat brought an end to his 37-year rule. Meanwhile Zuma is set to be replaced as the leader of the ruling African National Congress next month, and may be forced to step down from his eight-year-old presidency before the end of his term in...

Missouri Health...

Commentary: Soccer and Foreign Policy

President Trump’s Asia trip makes me think of – soccer. I love soccer. Columbia College has two nationally-ranked teams and I’m a big fan. I help my daughter coach a recreation league team here in Columbia that my granddaughters and grandson play on. I coached youth soccer for many years when we lived in Kirksville. So the pathetic failure of the U.S. men’s National team to qualify for next year’s World Cup by losing to Trinidad-Tobago, one of the worst teams in the world, is galling on...

GEORGE KENNEDY: Two Years After Campus Protests, it's Time to Lift the Burden of History

11/14/2017
