Study Hours: No longer fast or furious

Mike Madriaga

October 13, 2015

Back in the 1990s, when I was pursuing my business management degree, I had already opened my second business. It was a time where I would attend Mesa College, sit in class, and my cell would blow up from incoming phone orders via my old website, www.TeamPrototype.com (circa 1999-2005). I owned a mail-order company and was selling car-parts that I would manufacture. At the time, fibergl...

Perspective: In favor of the arts

Destiny Ortiz

October 13, 2015

The disappearance of art classes might not make much of an impact for some, but for others it might just be the end of the world. Why are art classes considered insignificant to the core learning standards that students recognize today? The emphasis is more on taking the required classes such as math and English. Reasons behind this are because of the No Child Left Behind Ac...

In June 2013, after a long process of trying to get my paperwork together, the mailman finally arrived with my student visa. I was one step closer. By Aug. 1, I basically had my life packed in a suitcase and a duffel bag. Flying 7,000 miles away from the Philippines by myself gave me a lot of time to process this big move. I wasn’t entering unknown territory, but the thought...

Josh Duggar is not a monster, baby raper or child molester. He is a victim of circumstances and ignorant parents.Strict rules that negatively impacted Josh Duggar's sexual development and a mother distracted with 18 other children are the circumstances that may have led him to inappropriately touch his sisters as a teenager.The Duggar family has been in pop culture since 20...

At a time where race and law enforcement seem to be in the news for all the wrong reasons, yet another was possibly added here in San Diego as students for the broadcast news show “Newscene” may have experienced a racial profiling incident that has caused an extreme load of stress and worry.

Study Hours: The missing buzzer

David Pradel, Sports Editor

May 11, 2015

Why is it that the community colleges, which have the word community in them, lack in bringing the community closer? You would think the athletics program at community colleges would offer something different for sports lovers in the community, but instead it seems as if it is pushed to the side and is belittled by the San Diego media outlets as they play watchdog for the...

May 11, 2015

The hype of the century, since Tyson and Holyfield or Muhammad and Joe Frazier, the fight between Manny Pacquiao and Floyd Mayweather was destined to be a classic told by the media and sold by the drama. It was a fight you could say that should of already happened, but with boxing politics and money-hungry promotion teams couldn’t lock down any deal sooner. With two fighters...

Torrey Spoerer

April 21, 2015

Typically, the modern-day dating options for a gay man with limited time and a phone have often been soul-mate-seeking websites such as OkCupid, or no-strings-attached messaging apps such as Grindr, Scruff or Jack’d. But what if all I needed was an imitation to entertain me enough to get by with day-to-day single life? Or maybe I had friends or family or chasers cons...
