Don't believe what you hear about H1N1

Don't believe what you hear about H1N1
Natalie Veissalov, Editor in Chief Last week, I received the H1N1 influenza vaccine at the Student Health Center. I must admit I was apprehensive about getting vaccinated because of all the speculation and commentary in the media and around town. However, I did plenty of research and made the decision to get it. I was shocked to hear that Consumer Reports found two out of three parents are choosing... 

Doing what you love

Doing what you love
Julissa Cardenas, Web Editor Many people ask me why I choose to be in journalism when newspapers are dying and people are not interested in reading the news anymore. The reason I am in this field is because I honestly love it. Ever since I can remember I’ve loved to read and write and even though I understand that the economy has taken a toll on my chosen field, I am planning to stick with it. Call... 

Offseason comes up gold for top NBA teams

Offseason comes up gold for top NBA teams
Kevin Garrity, Managing Editor We are a week and a half into the 2009-2010 NBA season and a few things seem certain, the Celtics look dominant, Pau Gasol is vital to the Lakers and the top echelon teams got a lot better during the off season. Boston bolstered their front court with the addition of Rasheed Wallace, who plays sound defense in the post and has the ability to step back and drill threes... 

Diversity leading to destruction

Diversity leading to destruction
Marla Bahloul, Arts Editor Last Friday, President Obama lifted a 22-year-old ban that barred persons with the HIV/AIDS virus from traveling to the United States. Since 1981, more than 25 million people have died of HIV/AIDS. The ban was enacted in 1987 when the epidemic was becoming more and more prevalent. My contention is then set against the president’s decision to repeal the ban. With the issues... 

Franken amendment is a no-brainer

There are few things in life that are complete no-brainers. The amendment to the FY2010 Defense Appropriations Bill proposed by newly elected Minnesota Sen. Al Franken essentially ensures people employed by defense contractors with the Department of Defense can sue corporations without being forced into private, internal arbitration. Franken was inspired to write this amendment following the Jamie... 

Campus Center goes green

The new Campus Center has made great advancements in the University’s pledge to fulfill environmental advocacy in its mission statement. Its recent silver certification in Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design, becoming the first building in the entire city to receive the award, should serve as a blueprint for any new building that hopes to achieve optimal sustainability and efficiency. The... 

A month to remember

A month to remember
Angie Marcos, LV Life Editor November is Alzheimer’s Awareness Month. In the United States today more than five million people live with the incurable disease. By 2050 this number is expected to climb to 14 million Americans. Additionally, Alzheimer’s Disease is the seventh leading cause of death in the country. Not being able to hold new information and eventually forgetting older information... 

Keep the Internet free from oppression

Keep the Internet free from oppression
Michael Escañuelas, Editorial Cartoonist The topic of Internet is boring, but it is interesting to see just how many people have practically zero knowledge about it. It seems that most people only know how open a browser and enter in a Web site. In my family, if I asked my father to do something as small as, say, check my online bank account while I’m away, I’m pretty sure his head will explode.... 

Building blocks for the future

Building blocks for the future
Natalie Veissalov, Editor in Chief I had a hard time figuring out what I was going to write for my column this issue. Then I began to reflect about this semester and my past two years of college at the University of La Verne. I cannot believe how fast my college years are passing by, especially this semester. I remember starting college and being so scared of the new environment. Although there were... 

Letter to the Editor

Dear Editor, The Oct. 9 “ULV’s lack of connection” editorial contained a number of inaccurate statements and misconceptions. 1. Contrary to the editor’s claim, the University does not block students from accessing non-University wireless accounts. Connectivity issues with outside wireless networks are in the control of those providers. 2. StuHan/Brandt wireless access was upgraded over summer...
