Following the Trail of the Monarch Butterflies: An Interview with Sara Dykman

9/22/2017
More
It’s a hot day at Cooper’s Landing. The Missouri River stretches to the right. A bluegrass band and crickets hum in the background. And people are scattered about listening, drinking beer and fanning away the heat. I glance around for Sara Dykman, who’s just arrived from Jefferson City by bike and who’s heading toward Mexico. I don’t see her, but I do see her bicycle. The bike is bright pink and loaded down with stuff. Suddenly, Sara appears with a Mr. Pibb in hand, catching me in the middle...

Missouri's Elusive Tropical Fruit Attracts Enthusiasts

9/22/2017
More
Late summer and early fall might not seem like a very tropical time in Missouri, but it is the best season to find one of the last remaining pieces of the state’s tropical past. I’m talking about the largest edible native fruit in North America – the elusive paw paw. Despite the fruit’s uniquely exotic flavor, and the fact that it grows throughout the Midwest, you won’t find the paw paw in most groceries, which means if you want to taste it, you have to set off into the woods, which is...

Global Journalist: Yemen Crisis Fueled by War, Outsiders

9/21/2017
More
The civil war in Yemen has garnered many superlatives since it began in force in March 2015. It's generated the world's most dire humanitarian crisis and the largest cholera outbreak in a single year ever recorded – even Forbes ranked its economy as the world's worst . Yet despite a conflict that has left 7 million on the brink of starvation, there is little end in sight to fighting between Iranian-backed Houthi rebels and the country's Saudi-backed government. Attempts to spur a U.N....

GEORGE KENNEDY: MU's climate is challenged, but changing

9/19/2017
More
You’ve read, I hope, the Missourian’s excellent coverage this week of the “climate survey” that was conducted a year ago to assess attitudes and behaviors of students, faculty and staff throughout the University system. If you have, you know that the findings revealed fairly high levels of discomfort among students and discontent among faculty and staff at MU. Only two-thirds of the nearly 5,000 MU students who responded to the survey said they felt comfortable on campus. Forty percent of...

Talking Politics: Police Chief Ken Burton Gives His Take on Racial Desparity in Traffic Stops

9/19/2017
More
Traffic stop data released by the Missouri Attorney General's office shows a disparity between black and white drivers in Columbia, but not everyone agrees as to what the numbers mean. Black drivers in Columbia were pulled over at a rate almost four times higher than white drivers in 2016. Some local groups, like Race Matters, Friends, say this is clear evidence of racial profiling and called for changes in the police department. Some have even called for the resignation of Police Chief Ken...
