Commentary: 'Modern Warfare 2' leads to missing student

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...

Offseason comes up gold for top NBA teams
Kevin Garrity, Managing Editor We are a week and a half into the 2009-2010 NBA season and a few things seem certain, the Celtics look dominant, Pau Gasol is vital to the Lakers and the top echelon teams got a lot better during the off season. Boston bolstered their front court with the addition of Rasheed Wallace, who plays sound defense in the post and has the ability to step back and drill threes... 

Diversity leading to destruction

Diversity leading to destruction
Marla Bahloul, Arts Editor Last Friday, President Obama lifted a 22-year-old ban that barred persons with the HIV/AIDS virus from traveling to the United States. Since 1981, more than 25 million people have died of HIV/AIDS. The ban was enacted in 1987 when the epidemic was becoming more and more prevalent. My contention is then set against the president’s decision to repeal the ban. With the issues... 

A month to remember

A month to remember

By 2050 this number is expected to climb to 14 million Americans. Additionally, Alzheimer’s Disease is the seventh leading cause of death in the country. Not being able to hold new information and eventually forgetting older information... 

Keep the Internet free from oppression

Keep the Internet free from oppression
Michael Escañuelas, Editorial Cartoonist The topic of Internet is boring, but it is interesting to see just how many people have practically zero knowledge about it. It seems that most people only know how open a browser and enter in a Web site. In my family, if I asked my father to do something as small as, say, check my online bank account while I’m away, I’m pretty sure his head will explode....
