Hundreds Participate in Ithaca’s March for Science

For some, science is more than a lifelong passion or a suitable career path: it’s the difference between life and death. Carrie Lazarre, a Tompkins County resident who has been suffering from stage IV colon cancer for the past decade, says that sustained colon cancer research has been crucial in keeping her alive all these years. Along with hundreds of others, Lazarre chose to participate in the March for Science at the Bernie Milton Pavilion on Ithaca Commons on April 22 to showcase the importance of science for everyday Americans. The march was part of a larger endeavor across the United States and the world to stand up for science research, funding and policy. The main event, which attracted approximately 40,000 people, took place in Washington D.C., with satellite marches in around 500 locations across the United States.

GROSKAUFMANIS | Rewriting the News

One of my favorite columnists, Jonathan Capehart, wrote a piece last Friday on President Trump’s first 100 days in office, titled “An Appreciation.” In it, Capehart says that Trump’s presidency hasn’t been as bad as he expected, and states that “[Trump] is responsible for the greatest surge in civic participation in half a century.” And while I’m not sure I would go so far as to say that exchanging Trump’s leadership for civic participation is a worthy trade, I think Capehart is spot-on in identifying the growth those who didn’t get what they wanted last November. We’re coming together now because we have to. I wish we didn’t have to, but at least we are.

DiBella’s Subs: A New Contender to the Lunch Scene?

Overall, the dining experience at DiBella’s Subs was an enjoyable one — the welcoming atmosphere slightly made up for the meal. I haven’t been to many sandwich shops in the Ithaca area (other than CTB) but it is similar to the delis back home — nothing really special but nothing very terrible. The best word to sum up the meal was average. If you are in the area, DiBella’s Subs would be a great place to grab a quick bite to eat in friendly surroundings, but if you aren’t nearby, I wouldn’t go out of my way to make the trek there. All in all, it might just be better to stop by CTB for a slightly more expensive sandwich.
