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. At any time there is a questioned raised or a finger pointed, the search for ‘truth’... 

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

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. But not all gifts are full of jolly cheer this holiday season. Over the past month, Microsoft has been giving the gift unforgivable punishment by banning over 1 million Xbox live members from using the service....

Commentary: 'Modern Warfare 2' leads to missing student
Michael Escañuelas, Editorial Cartoonist Close those curtains, tell your family you are dead, and let your girlfriend know that it is over, it is that time of the year again. Yes, my friends “Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2″ has finally been released, and I am happy to say that it delivers on its social life reducing promise of being one of the most addictive games of the year. For about... 

Legalize 'natural' resources

Legalize 'natural' resources
Michael Escañuelas, Editorial Cartoonist When I was in fifth grade, my elementary school spent a good two weeks participating in the D.A.R.E. program. From what I can remember, this program consisted of a cop or something coming into our classroom and conducting exercises that could help us fight against drugs and stay clean. Of course this completely makes sense, because being the impressionable... 

The law applies to everyone

The law applies to everyone
Natalie Veissalov, Editor in Chief When Maria Shriver made headlines a few weeks ago regarding pictures taken of her on her cell phone while driving, it made me upset. She was caught three times on her cell phone while driving. It made me especially upset because there are so many aggressive police officers ticketing regular citizens for driving and talking on their cell phones, when the First Lady... 

Christmas trumps all holidays

Christmas trumps all holidays
Angie Marcos, LV Life Editor Visit any department store and you will be welcomed by white glowing lights, glittery red and green streamers, elegantly dressed up trees, classical festive music and signs that remind you that Christmas is on Dec. 25, lest we all forget and Christmas goes uncelebrated this year. Although Thanksgiving is still over one week away, the Christmas season has already arrived... 

Don't believe what you hear about H1N1

Don't believe what you hear about H1N1
Natalie Veissalov, Editor in Chief Last week, I received the H1N1 influenza vaccine at the Student Health Center. I must admit I was apprehensive about getting vaccinated because of all the speculation and commentary in the media and around town. However, I did plenty of research and made the decision to get it. I was shocked to hear that Consumer Reports found two out of three parents are choosing... 

Doing what you love

Doing what you love
Julissa Cardenas, Web Editor Many people ask me why I choose to be in journalism when newspapers are dying and people are not interested in reading the news anymore. The reason I am in this field is because I honestly love it. Ever since I can remember I’ve loved to read and write and even though I understand that the economy has taken a toll on my chosen field, I am planning to stick with it. Call...
