In the season three premiere of the brilliant FXX comedy “You’re the Worst,” Gretchen casually reveals something that repulses her boyfriend Jimmy — she doesn’t wash her legs. Gretchen doesn’t see the big deal, but Jimmy is righteously disgusted at the woman he shares a bed with, whose legs...

Does age really matter when earning a degree? As long as you want it, go get it. I would like to work part time for a few more years before actually retiring, and receiving a degree would help me gain employment. You see I’m 62 years young. But there are many people my age or older who have to work...

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...

Racial profiling is something that can never truly be proved. As people know, there are three sides to every story: what was said by one person, what was said by the other person, and the truth. However, the bottom line is, no one should have to live in fear that there will be a consequence for being w...

“When we honestly ask ourselves which person in our life means the most to us, we often find that it is those who, instead of giving advice, solutions or cures, have chosen rather to share our pain and touch our wounds with a warm and tender hand,” Henri J.M. Nouwen wrote in his book “Out of Solitude: Three Meditat...

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. Last week, they appeared on campus, to...

I like to tell people I’ve been a Beyoncé Enthusiast since the age of five. Destiny’s Child’s “Writings on the Wall” is the first album I remember completely indulging myself in. But it wasn’t until I was 13 that I truly understood how much of an impact Beyoncé had on my life. Her music came...

“Pride goeth before destruction,” says the Good Book. “And an haughty spirit before a fall.” Bill Maher might not believe in the holy texts, but it has some good lines. Maher made headlines last week when he decided to have right-wing “provocateur” Milo Yiannopoulos on “Real Time.” Maher and t...

The music industry has always catered to white audiences over culturally relevant art. One of the most notable examples of this came about when the Grammys Ceremony aired last Saturday and graced us with criminally unsatisfying results once again, particularly in the categories in which hip-hop or R&...

All eyes were on Lady Gaga this Sunday as she took the stage after a Super Bowl first half dominated by the Falcons.
