Inequity is not just a women’s issue

Inequity is not just a women’s issue
Editorial cartoon by Jason D. Cox States across the nation are battling issues that directly affect more than half of the American population; the thread connecting these issues is women.

Research before you donate
Editorial cartoon by Jason D. Cox Every year, countless walks, raffles and events collect money for causes people are passionate about. Millions of dollars are poured into these causes, with donors hoping that the collected money will find a cure or end a war.

Diversity is more than color

The Supreme Court announced on Feb. 21 that it would hear an appeal from a white student who claims she was denied admission to the University of Texas based on racial discrimination.

Please silence your cell phones
Editorial cartoon by Jason D. Cox There is nothing more annoying than being in a theater with a person who lights up the darkness with the blue glow of their smart phone.

In every theater there are signs and announcements asking audiences to put cell phones on silent and refrain from using...

News is more than celebrity
Editorial Cartoon by Jason D. Cox At the University of La Verne, especially in the departments that are immersed into current events, many professors open each class session with the question, “Did you hear anything interesting happen in the news?” We are used to the silent response from our classmates as we look around the classroom, avoiding eye contact with the professor. Either that, or the... 

More fitness classes needed

The University of La Verne offers about 10 fitness classes for students to take and students have taken full advantage of these classes. Many of these classes are filled to capacity and some of them have more students than the listed capacity on the registration website, due to instructors allowing extra students to participate. ULV is taking the right step towards giving students an opportunity to...

One method involves exercises to regain and build muscle control of the new mother’s lady parts, the other is the biofeedback method which uses an electronic... 

Online voices should not be silenced

Online voices should not be silenced
Editorial Cartoon by Jason D. Cox After the blackout of dozens of popular sites around the United States, Congress decided to put aside the SOPA and PIPA bills that threatened the freedom of the Internet.
