Have yourself a very green Christmas

Have yourself a very green Christmas
Samantha Sincock, Editorial Director/Arts Editor Christmas time is here and so are the electricity bills from our treasured holiday delights. Walking or driving down the streets one becomes awed by the display of brightly colored Santa’s, decorative candy cans lining the walkway, or the hundreds of bright strands adorning every inch of the houses outer complexion.

Living in a fictional world

Living in a fictional world
Angie Marcos, LV Life Editor When I was 9 years old, I was introduced into the world of Harry Potter by a friend in my fourth grade class. Wizards, witches, spells, potions and wands were of great interest to me from the ages of 9 to 14. I dreamt of attending Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry and having a giant like Hagrid as a friend to advise me through all of life’s difficulties. I yearned... 

Lies and Tiger and branding, oh my!

Lies and Tiger and branding, oh my!
Dan Sayles, Sports Editor If there is one thing to be gleaned from the whole Tiger Woods mistress fiasco, it’s that the American public eats it up like leftover mashed potatoes. There will be few people who think otherwise, and just blame the networks of just being greedy shills, and that they do not reflect the average American. However, let us examine this hypothesis.

'Kingdom Hearts' makes a mystical comeback

'Kingdom Hearts' makes a mystical comeback
Michael Escañuelas, Editorial Cartoonist Sometimes it feels so good to be a kid. Whenever I’m reading, watching, or listening to something that conjures up memoires of my childhood makes me feel so good inside. To be honest a long time ago, when “Kingdom Hearts” for Playstation 2 was announced, I was more ecstatic then anyone I knew. I love Disney cartoons and I love Square Enix; so the combination...

Obama puts his name on Afghanistan
Kevin Garrity, Managing Editor Tuesday’s speech given by President Obama to the United States Military Academy marked a politically risky move.

You can't handle the truth

You can't handle the truth
Samantha Sincock, Editorial Director/Arts Editor The truth defined by Webster’s dictionary is the body of real things, events, and facts. Within society and the world individuals claim to have truth as their No. 1 value, the thing they live by and hold most dear to their arguments and decisions in everyday life.

Generations falling down

Generations falling down
Samantha Sincock, Editorial Director/Arts Editor You are in the store about to purchase your groceries for the week, a mother stands in front of you, her child running in circles screaming out in awkward babble the lyrics to “Party in the U.S.A.” You walk outside and see an elderly lady struggling with her groceries as five strapping boys pass by her without a care. A father is walking with his... 

Bringing the holidays to the poor

Bringing the holidays to the poor
Natalie Veissalov, Editor in Chief I cannot believe how fast the holidays are approaching. It feels like we just rang in the New Year. With our busy schedules and hectic life, it seems like everything is passing us by so much and without any room to take it all in. As we get closer to Thanksgiving and Christmas, we must stop and think what is really important and meaningful to us, including appreciating...

Commentary: Xbox 360 mod ban taking a toll on gamers
Michael Escañuelas, Editorial Cartoonist The season of giving is upon us. Of course, that would imply that many video game-related gifts will be the highlight of most college students’ holiday.

Over the past month, Microsoft has been giving the gift unforgivable punishment by banning over 1 million Xbox live members from using the service....
