The case for moderation

The case for moderation
Dan Sayles, Sports Editor I like to think of myself as a reasonable man. I have my beliefs, convictions, oddities, the like, but I don’t feel threatened when they are questioned or in conflict. I take it on a case-by-case basis. Is this principle irrelevant now? Do I rethink some of my beliefs when necessary when the situation calls for it? Yes, yes I do. However, it’s not always that simple, and... 

Marching for equality

Marching for equality
Kevin Garrity, Managing Editor A few weeks ago the University of La Verne Rainbow Alliance reminded us all of the injustices gays and lesbians still face today. The alliance protested on the corner of D Street and Bonita Avenue, in regards to last year’s ban on gay marriage in California and the little progress that has been made since that forgettable vote. I hope the Rainbow Alliance will not stop... 

Experience through internships

Experience through internships
Natalie Veissalov, Editor in Chief Instead of laying on the beach in Cancun, Mexico, or sightseeing in Europe this summer, I completed an internship at a Conde Nast publication called Women’s Wear Daily, which was in the same building as Vogue and W magazine. For those who may not know much about Women’s Wear Daily, let me give you some insight about it. WWD is a fashion trade publication, which... 

A healthier side to life

A healthier side to life
Samantha Sincock, Editorial Director/Arts Editor “Burger, fries, and a Coke. Don’t bother me, I’m eating,” a saying that has become one of the most famous slogans of the fast food industry today. In fact, America is so reliant on fast food that we insist that there be outlets throughout the country dishing out this “poison” to the masses. Now don’t hear me wrong, I do occasionally subject... 

A leash in place of parenting

A leash in place of parenting
Angie Marcos, LV Life Editor I was a leash child. It is embarrassing and shameful to admit, of course, but it still exists today. I remember having a bright pink colored strap placed around my wrist every time I would be taken out of my safe, cozy home to heavily populated areas. Most of my childhood memories at Disneyland, Knott’s Berry Farm, malls and airports include my trusty pink leash. Not... 

Comfortable and fashionable

Comfortable and fashionable
Natalie Veissalov, Editor in Chief Many women have traded in their sexy stilettos for a pair of fashionable flats. A few years back many young people were not into flats because everything in department stores and boutiques seemed too conservative and old-fashioned. But many new hip and upcoming designers – and even some classic designers, have come out with fresh, modern designs. Now when I go into... 

Dreaming of a green Christmas

Dreaming of a green Christmas
Kevin Garrity, Managing Editor In December, world leaders will meet in Copenhagen to discuss, and hopefully implement, a new set of regulations to confront global warming. However, this incredibly important meeting is on pace to be no different than any of the other world conversations about this issue, meaning a lot of rhetoric but little action. Hopefully, and at this point it is still only a hope,... 

At a loss for souvenirs

At a loss for souvenirs
Angie Marcos, LV Life Editor While in Madrid this summer, my family and I decided to attend the presentation of the world’s highest paid soccer player Cristiano Ronaldo. The Santiago Bernabéu stadium, which holds a capacity of 80,000 people, was filled almost instantly and a large crowd gathered outside the stadium in front of a large television screen to witness Ronaldo’s presentation as a player... 

Preparing for the future

Preparing for the future
Natalie Veissalov, Editor in Chief Many students may feel the same way I am feeling: overwhelmed and stressed. It seems like this semester all I have to look forward to is an overwhelming load of school work and projects. My schedule now till mid-December will be totally booked, even including the weekends. Although I love writing for the school newspaper and being editor in chief for the paper has... 

Hard work leads to fulfillment

Hard work leads to fulfillment
Michael Escañuelas, Editorial Cartoonist It is difficult to write a column within the first weeks of school without reflecting the past couple months of my life. I’m sure a lot of people would agree that the events of summer are always quite interesting. My summer consisted basically of writing stuff, playing music, reading and video games. That already sounds like winning combination. Considering...
