Dear Editors on Daily Mail, Just kidding. There are no editors on Daily Mail. From the headlines to the blurbs on the front page, and the stories to the gossip pages, the site is riddled with misspellings and errors. Factual errors, simple spelling mistakes, and a lot of things that are easily fixable if someone just …

On Wednesday night the Orthodox Union/JLIC at the Tanger Hillel of Brooklyn College had a panel discussion entitled “Depression and Anxiety: Let’s Talk”, with the intent of breaking the stigma and getting the community talking.
