UNLV professor Stephen Bates is one of three legal experts who filed a petition in federal court in Washington, D.C., on Friday asking for a decades-old Watergate document to be made public.
A question has loomed over Washington: What will the special counsel, Robert S. Mueller III, do when he wraps up his investigation into whether the Trump campaign conspired with Russia and whether President Trump obstructed justice?
Angelyn Tabalba has a long list of titles after her name. She’s a radio host who gives listeners lessons about Hawaiian history on her show “The Little Grass Shack.” She works with the Asian Community Development Council, doing outreach on UNLV’s campus. She’s an officer for the Residence Hall Association, a rising senior at UNLV studying journalism and criminal justice, and an aspiring graduate student. All commitments that have been made easier because she has lived on campus.
At the end of November, as Ridley Scott and the cast of All the Money in the World were in the midst of nine days of re-shoots in Rome and London, The Washington Post ran an article about pay disparities among the cast, specifically between Mark Wahlberg, the male lead, and Michelle Williams, his female co-star.
It's now a weekly, if not daily, occurrence: A video is posted on Facebook or Twitter showing a white person calling police on black people for minor violations or nothing at all, a new form of social media shaming that's exposed the everyday racism black Americans face and brought swift repercussions for the perpetrators.
Viral internet memes may seem silly, but they have the ability to shape cultural perceptions and political discourse. Donald Trump has been particularly adept at using memes to connect directly with his supporters and attack critics. Lou explains why they’re so impactful.
The Supreme Court says a grand jury can keep digging until “every available clue has been run down.” As a former lawyer on the staff of independent counsel Kenneth W. Starr, I hope that’s not Robert Mueller’s plan. If, as reported, he’s thinking about subpoenaing President Trump to testify , he should drop the idea. The rule of law is at stake.
Under independent counsel Kenneth W. Starr in 1998, I helped draft what came to be known as the Starr Report: a summary of “substantial and credible information ... that may constitute grounds for an impeachment,” which 28 U.S.C. § 595(c) then required us to send to the House of Representatives. One of my colleagues in that endeavor was Brett Kavanaugh, the D.C. Circuit judge President Trump has nominated to the Supreme Court.
UNLV panel to discuss state of transparency Public records, whistleblower protections and open meeting laws will be among the topics discussed at a panel on government transparency held at UNLV on Monday evening.
President Trump on Thursday began the next leg of a listening tour he promised after last month’s school shooting in Parkland, Fla., eliciting heated opinions at the White House from critics of violent video games and from game makers who reject any connection to mass shootings, but offering no concrete views of his own.
In the wake of the Florida school shooting, President Donald Trump is reviving an old debate over whether violent video games can trigger violent behavior. There's just one problem: Roughly two decades of research has repeatedly failed to uncover any such link.
Local residents may need to invest in a subscription to an online streaming service — Iowa City’s last video-rental store, Family Video, officially closed last weekend.
At 15, I arrived in the United States with a suitcase full of clothes, a picture of my golden retriever and the excitement of starting my new life. That was 10 years ago. Last month, the day after I graduated from college, I got on a nonstop flight that carried me and my new journalism degree away from the place I call home, back to a place my family and I once waved goodbye to. I am unsure I will be allowed to reenter.
When North Las Vegan Makenna Gott married her husband, Kyle, in 2013, she knew she was marrying YouTube, too.
Every night, a 45-pound, 3-year-old Dalmatian/Heeler mix shares my bed. We’ve had the same bedtime ritual for years: I give her a treat, she “gives me five” (with one paw), then “gives me ten” (with two paws), and then the lights go out.
Students involved in UNLV’s sports-themed “Rebel Report” TV show swap roles each week, ensuring each gets experience behind the anchor desk, holding a microphone and operating equipment.
Rachel Sheppard, who was shot three times at the Route 91 Harvest Festival, remembers everything up until she was put under for surgery. She was attending the concert with a group of friends from her home town of Tehachapi, California, where she works as a bartender and wedding coordinator.
Last Tuesday afternoon, Kraft-Sussman Funeral and Cremation Services, in Las Vegas, began getting calls from other local funeral homes and from parents whose children had been killed on Sunday night in the shooting at the Route 91 Harvest festival. Although, by all estimates, the Clark County coroner worked quickly to identify bodies—by Thursday, a list of the fifty-eight victims had already been released—the wait was agonizing for families. “That was tough,” Laura Sussman said recently. “Just getting a call every hour: Do you have them yet? Are they ready? Can we come over? ’Cause we want to give families some comfort, but we are also just one cog in the wheel.”
