Commentary: 3-D movies are not necessary

<i>Commentary</i>: 3-D movies are not necessary
Kristen Campbell, Editor in Chief I go to the movies quite often. I probably go too often if you ask my friends; I have seen the movies most television previews advertise. I enjoy being entertained and escaping from the world for two hours during a stressful week. Throughout all of my movie-going, I have noticed an annoying, and some may say alarming, trend among movies. Picture this scenario: you... 

Commentary: Where has the real news gone?

<i>Commentary</i>: Where has the real news gone?
Kristen Campbell, Editor in Chief Two weeks ago one of my communications professors commented that his news quizzes, which cover the top 10 names in the past week’s news, usually have one recurring name throughout the semester and was hoping Charlie Sheen would be removed very soon. That comment got me thinking about the media’s story priorities. Why does the media have low standards? They are... 

Commentary: There’s an app for that?

<i>Commentary</i>: There’s an app for that?
Kristen Campbell, Editor in Chief Anyone who has an Android or an iPhone can agree they are either addicted to or enjoy downloading applications to help pass the time. These applications, which can be downloaded for free with the occasional advertisement interrupting your play, are a big reason behind the purchase of these types of phones. But honestly, is there a need for an app for absolutely everything? When... 

Commentary: Policies need to be enforced

<i>Commentary</i>: Policies need to be enforced
Kristen Campbell, Editor in Chief Laws, policies and rules are made everywhere to make those involved safe. They are at companies, in countries and even at the University of La Verne. However ULV seems to make some policies just to up their reputation, not to actually abide by them. On the Campus Safety website, it says, “The University of La Verne is a ‘dry’ campus … prohibiting possession... 

Commentary: Philanthropy goes beyond sororities

<i>Commentary</i>: Philanthropy goes beyond sororities
Kristen Campbell, Editor in Chief I have never been a fan of Greek life. I went into college not wanting to rush or pledge for any sort of sorority. I wanted to make my own way on campus and make my own friends. I understand that you do not get friends but rather brothers and sisters that you get to hang out with during college and afterward. But I have a sister and I do not need any more. Girls can... 

Commentary: Be ready for me, journalism industry

<i>Commentary</i>: Be ready for me, journalism industry
Kristen Campbell, Editor in Chief I obviously have chosen to attend the University of La Verne to receive a degree in journalism. I went into this knowing the industry is known to be dying. However, if a writer has the will or the way to get into it, they will thrive and work doing something they love to do. Thriving in the industry as a writer with a strong mind is something I have always dreamed... 

Commentary: Marriage is meant to be religious

<i>Commentary</i>: Marriage is meant to be religious
Kristen Campbell, Editor in Chief During one of our weekly editorial board meetings, we were discussing what we would like to put into our “New Governor Wish List.” All of the editors present, excluding me, said to ask our new Gov. Jerry Brown to support gay marriage. I used my veto and said I would not risk my conservative beliefs and did not agree to place the wish on our list. After much unappreciated... 

There’s more to life than your cell phone

There's more to life than your cell phone
Kristen Campbell, Editor in Chief As of July, I finally entered the 21st century of technology; I got my first cell phone. Yes, be shocked. I constantly heard throughout high school and my freshman year of college comments of astonishment whenever I would say I did not have a cell phone. My friends and classmates were obsessed with their phones and would be near a heart attack if they misplaced it... 

Call me a crazy Catholic

Call me a crazy Catholic
Kristen Campbell, Editor in Chief I am a devout conservative Catholic and have been for the past 19 years today. I was baptized a Maronite Catholic at nearly 4 months old and have grown in my faith ever since then. Throughout the years, I have been taught about what the religion believes and I have also done my own research where the teachings lacked. Yes, the Catholic Church seems to always be in... 

Commentary: Being conscious of what you eat takes work

<i>Commentary</i>: Being conscious of what you eat takes work
Kristen Campbell, Editor in Chief As hopefully everyone knows, obesity is a national epidemic and sadly the bad eating habits have been passed on to younger people, including children. In a time of economic crisis, people are working multiple jobs to pay the bills and therefore overlook healthy eating as a part of their busy day. It has become more convenient and cheaper to run over to McDonald’s...
