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... 

Wanted: One good candidate

Wanted: One good candidate
Kevin Garrity, Editor in Chief California must be in really bad shape. Every day I read something that highlights that point, but the Golden State’s deep problems might be indicative of the group of politicians running for governor this year. And if you don’t know the cast of characters then you haven’t been watching much TV, because Meg Whitman’s ads are on almost more than “Friends” reruns.... 

New president, hear our calls

In his 26 years of faithful service to the University of La Verne, President Stephen Morgan has provided dedicated leadership and has accomplished many things. As we look to new leadership, here are a few things we’d like to see atop the new president’s agenda. 1. Fundraising: The University should fundraise more instead of relying so heavily on tuition to bring in revenue and support programs.... 

A whale of a problem

A whale of a problem
Kevin Garrity, Editor in Chief It was terribly sad to hear the news about Dawn Brancheau, the SeaWorld whale trainer who was drowned by one of the show’s orcas last week. It’s hard to imagine what her family is going through at this moment. But how surprising did the news come for people? The irregularity of such events might be astonishing given that these whales are habitually wild who don’t... 

Commentary: Scientology survivors retell stories of hell

Commentary: Scientology survivors retell stories of hell
Natalie Veissalov, LV Life Editor A couple of weeks ago, I was assigned to attend a news conference and create a story out of it for my Advanced News Reporting class. But in no way did I think my first news conference would be so dramatic. The news conference I covered was a talk given by six ex-Scientologists telling their horrifying stories full of claims that the Church of Scientology physically...
