Commentary: Trolls being taken seriously is seriously dangerous

<i>Commentary</i>: Trolls being taken seriously is seriously dangerous
Kellie Galentine, Staff Writer Most of the time I have faith in humanity, but then I stumble upon websites like returnofkings.com. Return of Kings is a site dedicated to renewing masculinity as defined by the pseudonym contributors, all who “believe men should be masculine and women should be feminine.” The site glorifies sexual assault and domestic violence as central to the “masculine” mindsets,... 

Support women: Give us tampons

With the student population in La Verne growing, so is the need for basic necessities. We are given free shirts on a weekly basis but things we really truly need are held back, like tampons. The University should be in tune with the needs of all of their students and with women students making up well over half the total student population, such feminine products in restrooms should be a no-brainer,... 

Letter to the Editor

Dear Editor, Regarding merit pay for faculty, I’d like us to slow down and to think carefully about the following points. First, I am not aware of compelling empirical data supporting the assumption that merit increases will serve as an incentive for faculty to be more productive. Second, assuming that a percentage increase in base salary is an incentive, will an increase of any size, 2-4 percent... 

Be thankful for family, not sales

Be thankful for family, not sales
Editorial cartoon by Jacob Bogdanoff Americans continue to prove that we are living in a material world. This year, Thanksgiving dinner for many is going to turn into Thanksgiving lunch as stores have decided to start their Black Friday deals on Thursday. Money hungry companies have found their way into homes of Americans and will potentially ruin one of the few days families are able to come together. Though... 

Non-profits pocket donations

After any natural disaster Americans look to do their part in donating to relief funds. It is amazing how much money can and does get donated to the various relief funds and organizations. But how much of our money donated goes directly to relief? A sad fact is that research is needed before donating. The massive typhoon that hit the Philippines has now accounted for more than 4,000 deaths and has... 

Letter to the Editor

Dear Editor, I read with interest the well versed comments about how easy it is to “sneak into” Davenport by having someone open the back gate (“Too easy to eat free at Davenport,” Nov.1). But, is that really the problem? Isn’t the problem that those students think their classmates should pay for their lunch? If I were a student paying good money for a meal card, would I think it was fair... 

Veterans Day celebrated in classroom

Veterans Day celebrated in classroom
Editorial cartoon by Jacob Bogdanoff November 11 marked the day that we, as Americans, honor the ones that have served our country in the U.S. military. On Veterans Day, military service members were able to spend the day with their family and friends. They ate, they laughed, they had a good time, and they celebrated. Here at La Verne we celebrated our decorated heroes by having classes. Students who... 

Locker room culture is incognito

Miami Dolphins guard Richie Incognito has received a huge backlash from the racial epithets and profane language in a slur of text messages and a voice mail message left for Miami Dolphin’s tackle Jonathan Martin. Incognito left the message in April 2013, a year after Martin was drafted. “Hey, wassup, you half n***** piece of s***. I saw you on Twitter, you been training 10 weeks. [I want to] s***... 

Adjunct union deserves support

University adjunct faculty members have recently filed for unionization with the National Labor Relations Board, looking toward improved pay, job security, access to benefits and more. Currently 60 percent of the classes on the main campus are taught by adjuncts. Students should take this number into consideration and stand behind our adjuncts in unionization. Most adjuncts at the University are paid... 

Sext message not received

Sext message not received
Editorial cartoon by Jacob Bogdanoff San Diego police are looking into a sexting ring that broke out in the San Dieguito Union High School District after dozens of students forwarded sexually explicit photos of their fellow students. The students involved could be charged with possession or distribution of child pornography after the photos of the teen girls reached six different high schools and a...
