Gossip consumption leaves real news in the dark

Gossip consumption leaves real news in the dark
Kevin Garrity, Editor in Chief The Web site minonline.com, a marketing publication that rates successes and failures throughout the media, released their results on which magazine covers were the best and worst sellers in 2009. A year that saw continuing economic disaster, the ongoing battle of fighting two wars and relentless debate on trying to reform a major sector of our social lives, health care,... 

Dorm life needs some attention

The University of La Verne is a private school, and by default charges an arm and a leg, and another arm at that, for tuition, room and board. This is understandable, for the most part. ULV provides intimate class sizes and great accessibility to teachers and faculty. This accounts for the high academic tuition, but not the room and board. Living at ULV costs more than $3,000 a semester, with food.... 

What health care reform means

Since President Obama’s inauguration in January 2009, most Americans have been patiently awaiting the first big step his administration would take in shaping America into the hopeful new country that was promised to us in his campaign speeches. Now, more than a year later, Obama has finally delivered his first major win: the health care bill. With the passing of the health care reform bill on Sunday,... 

Census is crucial for America

Last week every household in the United States recieved their large white Census envelope to complete and return to the government in order to calculate how many people are living within our borders. And while the task of indicating how many individuals live in your house, as well as their ages, is seemingly innocent, it has garnered some unwarranted criticism from big government foes. However, this...

Commentary: Getting around with Google

Commentary: Getting around with Google
Kristen Campbell, News Editor Google Maps is a great help to anyone needing directions walking, driving, using public transits, and now, bicycling. My experience has always been an easy and efficient one, until I started playing around with the Web site. While perusing summer vacations, I was curious how far Honolulu was from my house, so I pulled up Google Maps and got directions, thinking it would... 

Letter to the Editor

Dear Editor, Why is ULV involved in trying to collect money for scholarships at a minor league hockey game through the auctioning of worn jerseys? During a recent Ontario Reign game (for which ULV liberally passed out tickets to students, faculty, staff and alumni) one of the players punched his opponent, knocking off his helmet, continuing to pummel him with his fists, over and over again. It was... 

Vacation Down Under

Vacation Down Under
Kevin Garrity, Editor in Chief I have never been able to travel anywhere exciting for spring break; it was always sports, school or lack of funds that kept me from exploring different lands. But this spring break led me on my most memorable one yet, to the land down under, Australia. While I have traveled to Europe before, this was my first time being in the southern hemisphere and I have a 14-hour... 

FDA regulations smell fishy

FDA regulations smell fishy
Editorial Cartoon by Michael Escañuelas Less than two weeks ago a suit was filed in California Superior Court charging several makers of fish oil pills with marketing products containing PCB (polychlorinated biphenyl) levels beyond the safe limits for human consumption, and illegally failing to reveal the level to consumers. PCBs in high enough doses are known to cause cancer and reproductive toxicity.... 

End of the road for Hummer

Once they could be seen treading on ridged mountain slopes and broken desert roads before coming to height in the 2000s. Then suddenly they were seen as the official vehicle for mothers of suburbia to drive to the grocery store. It is safe to say that Hummer’s legacy will be a symbol of American might and vanity after General Motors announced that their Chinese buyout deal with Sichuan Tengzhong... 

Let's prioritize diversity

UC San Diego was recently attacked with media coverage due to racist activities over the past few weeks. Among these was the “Compton Cookout,” in which students were encouraged to dress “ghetto” and speak loudly, and a KKK hood was placed on the Dr. Seuss statue outside of the library. This event is a horrible affront to the African-American community at UCSD, which accounts for 2 percent...
