Aside from the obvious, things like property damage and a drain on resources, people have been killed or injured. As of today, the number of victims have been estimated at ...

The opioid crisis took a backseat in the recent political discussions, but it is a demon that has by no means gone away. More than 115 people in the United States die every day due to overdosing on opioids, and not enough is being done about it. Opioid misuse and addiction is a serious national concern from a...

In what seemed like an election that would never arrive, the 2018 midterm elections are finally in the books. It was anti-climatic as the Democratic Party took control of the House of Representatives as predicted. The Republicans maintained control of the Senate as predicted as well.

Hockey, more than just a sport

Hugo Calderon, @HCAL09

Filed under Perspectives, Sports

Hockey is a sport that if you’re not into, chances are you barely know what it’s all about. At least that was the case for me. Hockey was something I knew about but never looked into. Recently I was able to attend a San Jose Sharks game at the SAP center. It was truly an eye opening experience. ...

Filed under Editorial, Perspectives

     President Trump, in a desperate attempt to fire up his base ahead of the midterms, has now found a new boogeyman to focus on. The caravan of migrants didn’t work, so he’s turned to the outrageous idea of repealing the 14th Amendment to the Constitution. This would impact so-called “ancho...

With the consequential midterm elections looming, immigration is sure to be a hot bed issue. One could argue it will be more contentious this election, especially considering the massive caravan of migrants working their way to the United States border.

Filed under Perspectives

Dear editor, Can we please start talking about tuition cost? In the past couple years, I have noticed new programs for college students popping up. Yet it seems like no one is acknowledging them or how much they’re truly needed. I don’t think that I have to stress the importance of attending ...

Trump’s defense of the Saudi’s is pitiful

Robert Pierce, @RobertP_EXP

October 19, 2018


Filed under Editorial, Perspectives

President Trump’s response to the killing of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi is pathetic and sad. Despite a mounting pile of objective evidence up including audio and video recordings implicating the Saudis as the party responsible for Khashoggi’s gruesome murder, Trump has doubled down in defense o...
