Marching for equality

Marching for equality
Kevin Garrity, Managing Editor A few weeks ago the University of La Verne Rainbow Alliance reminded us all of the injustices gays and lesbians still face today. The alliance protested on the corner of D Street and Bonita Avenue, in regards to last year’s ban on gay marriage in California and the little progress that has been made since that forgettable vote. I hope the Rainbow Alliance will not stop... 

Experience through internships

Experience through internships
Natalie Veissalov, Editor in Chief Instead of laying on the beach in Cancun, Mexico, or sightseeing in Europe this summer, I completed an internship at a Conde Nast publication called Women’s Wear Daily, which was in the same building as Vogue and W magazine. For those who may not know much about Women’s Wear Daily, let me give you some insight about it. WWD is a fashion trade publication, which... 

ULV's lack of connection

ULV's lack of connection
Editorial Cartoon by Michael Escañuelas We all, at one point or another, have accessed the Internet through the University’s network. But what if that just isn’t good enough? What if we want to access an account through an outside wireless connection? The University has made it increasingly difficult to use outside sources. We are rather confined to the school’s network and are forced to deal...

Why not a public option?

Can there really be true healthcare reform without including a public option? The case for the public option provision in an upcoming healthcare bill took another blow on Tuesday, when the Senate Finance Committee rejected both Senator Jay Rockefeller (D-WV) and Senator Chuck Schumer’s (D-NY) bills which included a public option. It is important to keep in mind; even with a Democratic majority in...

A healthier side to life

A healthier side to life
Samantha Sincock, Editorial Director/Arts Editor “Burger, fries, and a Coke. Don’t bother me, I’m eating,” a saying that has become one of the most famous slogans of the fast food industry today. In fact, America is so reliant on fast food that we insist that there be outlets throughout the country dishing out this “poison” to the masses. Now don’t hear me wrong, I do occasionally subject... 

A leash in place of parenting

A leash in place of parenting
Angie Marcos, LV Life Editor I was a leash child. It is embarrassing and shameful to admit, of course, but it still exists today. I remember having a bright pink colored strap placed around my wrist every time I would be taken out of my safe, cozy home to heavily populated areas. Most of my childhood memories at Disneyland, Knott’s Berry Farm, malls and airports include my trusty pink leash. Not... 

Comfortable and fashionable

Comfortable and fashionable
Natalie Veissalov, Editor in Chief Many women have traded in their sexy stilettos for a pair of fashionable flats. A few years back many young people were not into flats because everything in department stores and boutiques seemed too conservative and old-fashioned. But many new hip and upcoming designers – and even some classic designers, have come out with fresh, modern designs. Now when I go into... 

Overdrafts no longer a nightmare

Overdrafts no longer a nightmare
Editorial Cartoon by Michael Escañuelas Banks have always been a person’s best friend, or worst enemy. And lately, banks have not been enjoying the limelight during the economic recession and the public’s ire at being bailed out while other industries were left to go bankrupt, leaving the banks to reassess many of their policies that, while it benefitted them during the economic boom, now are... 

Dreaming of a green Christmas

Dreaming of a green Christmas
Kevin Garrity, Managing Editor In December, world leaders will meet in Copenhagen to discuss, and hopefully implement, a new set of regulations to confront global warming. However, this incredibly important meeting is on pace to be no different than any of the other world conversations about this issue, meaning a lot of rhetoric but little action. Hopefully, and at this point it is still only a hope,... 

At a loss for souvenirs

At a loss for souvenirs
Angie Marcos, LV Life Editor While in Madrid this summer, my family and I decided to attend the presentation of the world’s highest paid soccer player Cristiano Ronaldo. The Santiago Bernabéu stadium, which holds a capacity of 80,000 people, was filled almost instantly and a large crowd gathered outside the stadium in front of a large television screen to witness Ronaldo’s presentation as a player...
