Many new legislators, but will N.J. cities benefit?

October 28, 2003 Dan Cuellar 0

On Nov. 4, voters from all across New Jersey will head to the polls to elect 40 State Senators and 80 members of the General Assembly to the state legislature. Mercer County has received special attention because it is one of a few counties across the state with key competitive elections. […]

Lazy students, careless teachers and dull pencils

October 28, 2003 Kevin Semanick 0

There are coat racks in the new science building, but there are still no pencil sharpeners in the building that houses the mathematics and statistics department. It is no surprise that our school is not a college of national prominence.

There are two reasons we’ll never be touted as one of the nation’s finest colleges. […]

Thou shalt not kill

October 28, 2003 Matt Esposito 0

This week the government finally passed a bill banning partial birth abortion, a great victory for the pro-life camp and the entire country.

Because of the bill, babies will no longer be pulled from their mothers’ wombs, scissors stuck in their skulls and their brains vacuumed out. […]

A matter of choice

October 28, 2003 Matt McDowell 25

I’m a little angry this week. So forgive me, but I’m even more frightened.

Politicians around the nation, both in state and federal government, are attempting to change more than the laws of morality.

With several examples from around the country, a disturbing trend is displaying itself. […]

Hey Arnold (Schwarzenegger)! Pop Government

October 14, 2003 Kate Bernyk 0

I knew that Arnold Schwarzenegger was going to be governor of California the minute he announced he was going to run on “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno.” So that was the day that I made my peace with the idea of the actor, who once portrayed a pregnant man, would be a high ranking public official. […]

Hey Arnold (Schwarzenegger)! Kindergarten Gov.

October 14, 2003 Diana Ling 0

He’s starred in such films as “The Terminator,” “Junior” and “Kindergarten Cop.” Let’s face it, Arnold Schwarzenegger has never been one to be in movies hailed as, “Brilliant!” or “Oscar-worthy!” Personally, I’ve never really cared much for his machine-gun-and-one-liner-toting action flicks either, but now he’s the governor-elect of California, and ready to be sworn in on Nov. […]

Communism by any other name …

October 14, 2003 Matt Esposito 0

The College regularly opens my mind to new ideas because we have a diverse student body that holds differing points of view. However, there are always those few people who follow really off the wall philosophies or ideas that shock me. One of those philosophies is socialism. […]

U.S. should execute the death penalty

October 14, 2003 Kevin Semanick 0

The death penalty is a trite moral argument. Proponents of this murderous form of capital punishment are always proposing the same questions.

One claim is that lethal injections are the cheapest form of justice, which is completely untrue. In most instances a capital court case incurs costs five to 10 times that of life imprisonment. […]

California recall puts GOP back in power

October 14, 2003 Dan Cuellar 0

Did you know California is a Republican state? Did you know Los Angeles is a Republican county?

Did you know Republicans can win over two-thirds of voters in places like Orange and San Diego Counties, the Inland Empire and the Central Valley?

Californians haven’t seen anything like what happened in the recall election held last week since 1994. […]

U.N.: not a cure for world problems

October 7, 2003 Matt Esposito 0

For many, the United Nations is something to be revered. Some see it as a precursor to a successful world-wide government. Others view it as a benevolent organization that strives for peace and equality. Unfortunately, these idealistic dreams about the U.N. […]

Alive with the sound of stolen music

October 7, 2003 Matt McDowell 0

The Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) has been successful so far in its attempt to perform a number on many of its customers because the federal court system has upheld its “right” to do so.

Through the criminalization of file-sharing practices on the Internet, the RIAA hopes to clamp down on files on the Internet to rescue the ailing industry from a year of terrible CD sales. […]

Light beer and no Halo — better than fad dieting

October 7, 2003 Andrea Wright 0

Dieting has become the craze on campus. It may be from fear of “the freshman 15,” unidentifiable Sodexho food or just because mom’s not around to make you eat your veggies.

It seems like wherever you go, you hear people talking about counting carbs and fat intake. […]

Does technology rule your life? AIM for instant satisfaction

October 7, 2003 Donna Kardos 0

Last Saturday my hard drive was replaced, so I had to wait until Monday for to put me back on the network. I thought I would go crazy. I was without Internet, without e-mail and without AIM.

It was bad enough that on Friday the week before, we were without these modern communication techniques due to the power outage – this was double the time and double the torment. […]

Does technology rule your life? Snail mail is worth the wait

October 7, 2003 Kelly Meisberger 0

How would you like it if all you received on your birthday were e-mail and IM celebration wishes? What about if on your anniversary, your significant other said, “Here’s some flowers, I e-mailed you the card”? The point is that even in today’s technologically abundant society, virtual greetings – whether they are through e-mail, IM or even online cards – leave something to be desired. […]
