Winning this year’s record-breaking Powerball may do more harm than good

With the winnings for the largest Powerball in history reaching $1.5 billion, much consideration is put into what you could buy with the remaining $785 million, after taxes. However, would the winnings bring more or less happiness to an average citizen’s current living situation? Princeton University’s Woodrow Wilson School conducted a study showing that up to $75,000 a year essentially buys people’s happiness, but not their emotional well-being. Princeton University professors Daniel Kahneman and Angus Deaton gathered data from the Gallup- Healthways Well-Being Index and found responses from the more than 450,000 U.S. residents surveyed that correlated with emotional...

Students weigh in on the pros and cons of not allowing guns on FGCU’s campus

We’ve all heard the saying, “Don’t fight fire with fire,”  but does this saying apply when the idea of fighting gunfire with gunfire is put into play? On Friday, Oct. 2, FGCU faculty senate voted against two state bills that would allow concealed guns on the state’s college and university campuses.
