‘Devious Maids’ is not televisions answer for Latinas in Hollywood

September 9, 2013

I spent two years trying to be an actress. I know it’s not a huge amount of time, but it was a goal I set for myself. If I didn’t land a gig within that time frame, I’d move on and set my sights on something less dramatic. Well, it didn’t take long for those two years to pass. I had gone ...

A day after U.S. Army Pvt. Bradley Manning was found guilty of 20 charges, which included espionage, theft and fraud, a statement was released in which Manning expressed that she would like to be known as Chelsea E. Manning and be referred to by female pronouns. She plans to undergo hormone therapy as soon as poss...

In a push for immigration reform, the GOP gave their latest conservative piecemeal: the Strengthen and Fortify Enforcement (SAFE) Act. Proposed by U.S. Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.), the SAFE Act aims to fix the immigration system in America “step-by-step and increment-by-increment” according to Gowdy. In short, the SAFE Act, if passed, will automatically m...

President Obama just recently announced that he is seeking congressional approval for a military strike against Syria. This time though really guys, he said, it’s gonna be different. Like, seriously. More or less, that’s what the president said, with witty paraphrasing done by the author of thi...

Students around the country have started the fall semester after a long summer break, and ahead lies several weeks of buying last-minute supplies, signing up for clubs and getting lost on huge college campuses. Adjusting to life in college may also include a ubiquitous, but wildly unhealthy, part of t...

In commemorating the 50th anniversary March on Washington on Aug. 28, the role that race plays in the U.S. has come back into the spotlight. But, really, it never left. Many might like to think that racism is nearly obsolete. After all, we do have our first ever African-American president. But contra...

‘Chicana/o’ term limits and excludes

Joanna Jacobo

August 27, 2013

Mexican. Mexican-American. American. Chicana? Growing up, I never understood what the terminology meant. My parents defined a Chicana/o as someone who lost their heritage, their true Mexican culture: those who claimed to be better than many undocumented Mexicans attempting to build a better life here, as oppos...

Stop rape by talking to men, not women

Stop rape by talking to men, not women

Ana Rodriguez

August 26, 2013

At one point in my life catcalls (when men yell or make a noise of a sexual nature at women to get their attention)  were annoying, harmless and sometimes funny. That was before I learned that one of my female cousins had been raped at the age of 16. It was a horribly touchy subject within my family...

As the Beatles would say, it’s been a long and winding road. I first started on my path to a college degree back in 1998 as an incoming freshmen. That means the vast majority of you reading this who are also graduating were at the ripe old age of seven, give or take a few months. It’s a sobering thought but at t...

  Today, you can buy and sell anything you can think of; both literally and figuratively. Technological advances in society have made it possible for the most absurd fantasy to become a reality. However, there is one priceless item that we seem to have lost, but that is never for sale: our ...

Former Vikings punter Chris Kluwe release may be for reasons other than statistics

Casey Delich

May 8, 2013

The punter of the Minnesota Vikings, Chris Kluwe, was released by his team after eight years of service, but was it for his skills or beliefs? If we measure Kluwe purely by statistics, he has been a very productive punter for the Vikings over the course of his career, though he has steadily decline...

May 8, 2013

Some people call me crazy for entering graduate school immediately after completing my bachelor’s degree. Others say it’s a good thing because I’m getting ahead in life. Some even tell me it’s becoming a necessity nowadays. As the job market and competition continue to grow and get tougher, obtai...
