#LeoMarketingScheme
Editorial cartoon by Jacob Bogdanoff and Des Delgadillo President Devorah Lieberman announced via email recently that Fridays at the University of La Verne will now be Leo Pride Fridays. And it seems this is another one of the University’s questionable marketing schemes. Leo Pride Fridays is a new tradition for which faculty, staff and students are encouraged to wear University apparel on Fridays. Lieberman... 

‘Fifty Shades’ is abuse, not romance

The highly anticipated “Fifty Shades of Grey” movie was a financial success with masses of mommy bloggers and impressionable teenage girls flocking to see the controversial and taboo movie Valentine’s Day weekend. However, having high commercial success doesn’t make up for the fact that “Fifty Shades” is a dangerous film. In “Fifty Shades,” naive college student Anastasia Steele gets... 

Oscars disregard diversity

The 87th Annual Academy Awards were held Sunday and once again, were dominated by whites in all categories. It is no question that people of color are severely underrepresented at the Oscars. Even host Neil Patrick Harris made an opening joke about the whiteness at the Oscars by stating, “Tonight we celebrate Hollywood’s best and whitest, sorry…brightest.” Every single actor or actress nominated... 

ASULV finally speaks up

ASULV finally speaks up
Editorial cartoon by Jacob Bogdanoff and Des Delgadillo Last week the Board of Trustees approved a 4.9 percent increase in tuition for the 2015-2016 school year. Tuition will rise from $36,744 per year to $38,560 per year. Tuition increase is inevitable, but this year, the Associated Students of the University of La Verne’s open protest against it was not. In fact, their response was quite surprising. Throughout... 

Williams deserved suspension

Brian Williams, anchor and managing editor of NBC Nightly News, has been suspended for six months without pay due to his fabrication of his personal experience during the Iraq War. Williams admitted to fabricating a story in which he said he was in a helicopter that was hit in 2003 while reporting on the Iraq War. However, he was actually in a separate helicopter one hour later and a war veteran revealed... 

Islamophobia must stop

After three Muslim students were killed in Chapel Hill, North Carolina, on Feb. 10, the controversial issue of Islamophobia in the United States began to resurface, with some people outraged that this incident not being addressed as an act of terrorism. Craig Hicks was indicted for shooting and killing Deah Barakat, Yusor Mohammad Abu-Salha and Razan Mohammad Abu-Salha at their condominium complex. Police... 

Anti-vaxx ignorance still rampant

Since the measles outbreak at Disneyland in December, there have been 121 cases of measles reported in the United States between Jan. 1 and Feb. 6. The question that comes to mind is why would a disease that has previously been eradicated by successful vaccinations make a comeback in 2015? The answer: the ignorance of anti-vaxxers. According to the CDC, measles is a highly contagious airborne disease...

Bylaw changes undermine faculty

“Secrecy breeds suspicion,” a phrase used while discussing the release of the Board of Trustee’s bylaws this fall. The bylaws allow the University’s president to veto faculty decisions with minimal time for them to gather and vote to overturn his or her decision. While faculty are working with the Board to revise this component of the Bylaws, the lack of transparency about the bylaws and the... 

Some performances too vile to be art

There is no justification for using racism, sexism or other offensive language, symbols and behavior in music, comedy or other “art” – for the sake of getting people talking. (We’re looking at you, Nicki Minaj.) For her newest single, “Only,” Minaj settles for a cartoon music video and embellishes the Young Money logo to eerily parallel swastikas and places them on flags, billboards and...
