In a relentless effort to further ruin everyone’s lives, the Trump Administration has enacted a bill doing away with core aspects of the Affordable Care Act. This means making it harder for some to pay for health services since it would limit Medicaid funding, which covers many low-income Americans. In...

Following the 2017 Oscars Best Picture flub, sympathy for “La La Land” and the embarrassing moment its cast and crew had to face after being wrongly named winner was all that various media platforms talked about once the show ended. But what about “Moonlight” and the importance of an all-bla...

The pro-lifers are at it again. At least once a year, Project Truth, an anti-abortion organization advocating against Planned Parenthood comes to Los Medanos College, bringing with them extremely graphic 20 ft. posters of aborted fetuses and poorly written literature.

With the outcome of the 2016 election, life as we know it has changed. This election has made history, but not in the way we hoped it would. As soon as the new president-elect was announced, protests broke out on college campuses across the country. To a lot of people, these demonstrations seem confusin...

Last week, the Experience covered how some Los Medanos College instructors are integrating the election into their lectures.

Like America itself, the death penalty has a racist past it has yet to reckon with. Some of the first capital crime laws in the colonies were written in response to a New York slave riot in 1712, when a group of slaves broke free and killed some white people. 21 slaves were sentenced to death, 20 be...

The accusations continue to pile up around Donald Trump. Just a few days after he defended his so-called “locker room talk” on a national debate stage by invoking the specter of ISIS, even more women came forward to accuse the Republican nominee of actions varying from voyeurism to the sorts of sexu...

For many Los Medanos students, community college is a good or even ideal choice for a secondary education.
