Registration for Spring 2017 classes began for many students this week. As is usual for this process, classes fill up or aren’t offered on certain days of the week, which can create problems for students. These problems usually work themselves out. But what’s the deal with all the online classes bei...

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. But we would like to suggest that more classes inject politics into classes every year, not just the fall semesters following the Summer Olympics. Some instructors might object...

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...

Filed under Editorial

For many Los Medanos students, community college is a good or even ideal choice for a secondary education. The proximity to home and opportunity to either get our general education done and transfer to a four-year or sample a few different fields before selecting a major — all at a relatively low cost...

Throughout history, there have been people people who risk their careers and reputations to stand up for what they think is right. Most recently, 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick and soccer player Megan Rapinoe have joined the ranks of athletes and celebrities speaking out against social injustice...

Los Medanos College has made the leap from learning management system Desire2Learn to Canvas… well, almost. This is the transitional year, so while some students have made the change to the newer platform, there are still students and instructors using D2L. Students will have access to the older system...

Bad year for acceptance

2016 is the most tolerant, inclusive year in the history of the United States. 2016 has also seen craven attempts by several states to roll back the voting rights of minorities, a riot in Milwaukee — one of the most segregated cities in America — in response to yet another killing by police, the...

This June, Californians have the opportunity to advocate for momentous change. On Tuesday, June 7, we will choose between a candidate who embodies nearly every negative aspect of the Democratic Party and a candidate who embraces the best ideals of the party of Roosevelt and the Great Society. It is...

With the California presidential primary election coming up June 7, people young and old are registering to vote, because in this day and age, everyone is given a chance to “make a difference” in America, whether they deserve one or not. I’m not saying some people should be allowed to vote and...

With Mother’s Day just around the corner, people are going out and spending loads of money to make sure their mother feels “appreciated” but is all of this really necessary? We’ve all done it; bought cards, clothes, perfumes, or taken our mom out to a movie and dinner. It is Mother’s Day, after...
