Can I Have a Glass of Water?

Within the past few months, the Bay Area has received steady rainfall. Periods of rain have lasted weeks, which feels a bit outlandish, considering the average annual rainfall in this area has been around 22 inches, compared to 39 for the States. Even with all this recent rain, California is still shown as status: in a drought. Nearly five years after hitting a record low in rainfall in the cities of Los Angeles, San Francisco and Sacramento, things are finally taking a turn for the better. Life is flourishing, reservoirs are filling and snow is collecting in the mountains. Lake…

The Branding of Higher Education

A brand-name is a powerful tool – especially in America. Our distinctly American brands reach across the world, as Asian students adorn the latest Nike apparel, and our signature drink, Coca-Cola, is drunk as far as Antarctica. Even our biggest tourist destination, Times Square, is a commercial fantasyland, lit by the incandescent glow of corporate advertising. However, our obsession with branding goes beyond consumer culture, and has leaked into the world of higher education As seniors begin receiving their acceptance decisions, rounding out the college application season, their tension is palpable. For years, these students have been working towards the…

America: United by Division

November 8, 2016 was one of the worst days of my life. I was in shock, in absolute disbelief. I cried for hours, mortified to be a citizen of a country that willingly elected an irrational, disrespectful, lying, fear mongering, divisive, corrupt, manipulative tyrant to lead it. And yet, in only the first few days of Trump’s presidency, I have never felt more proud to be American. This man, a master of division, has somehow managed to be one of the greatest uniting forces in American history. He has awakened American people who have never before participated in politics and…

Obama Says Goodbye to his Presidency

It’s been 8 years since Barack Obama took over as president of the United States of America. Although many think that his presidency wasn’t very good or that it was a disappointment, I believe that he has helped this country in many ways. He faced many obstacles during his presidency. One example is when he became the new president of the then struggling United States of America. He jumpstarted the American economy during one of the worst recessions in the U.S. since the Great Depression. He also gave many rights to the members of the LGBT community, such as allowing…

No More Social Media for Me

I still remember the day in middle school when my parents gave me the ok to downloading Instagram and Snapchat. Suddenly I felt like a part of society. But why? Maybe because at that time the apps were the new hit thing. Or maybe it was because social media gave me another responsibility. Or was it the fact that I had the control to say whatever I wanted on my posts without a second glance. However, all of those years of snapping and hashtagging away ended over the recent winter break. Personally I found Instagram a chore. Every morning I…

Entertainers Openly Sharing Their Opinions

  Although the decision that Donald Trump will become America’s next president has already been made, many controversies are still arising regarding the impressions he has made during his campaign. People have been voicing their opinions about the situation publicly, especially on social media outlets like Twitter. Of course as people, we all have the right to share our opinions openly and should not be forced to do otherwise. However, many actors and singers have tried to voice their opinion as well, but have received backlash from many of their former fans. This, ultimately, makes them take back their opinion…

Spotify is Robbing Musicians and You’re a Part of the Problem

Spotify is a music streaming service with over 100 million users. Spotify provides users like myself with thousands of songs and the ability to download as many as you can fit on your device for a flat rate. It’s also free if you opt not to download songs and the file sizes are smaller, but you still can stream unlimited music from a computer. In fact, I’m doing it right now. This is a dream for someone like me who listens to thousands of songs a month and downloads new tracks daily. The service saves me a ton of money…

Young People’s Opinions Being Disregarded

Have you ever been very passionate about an idea or opinion but been shut down simply because you are “too young?” Many young people face this frustrating and discouraging conflict while growing up. Just because you are young in age does not necessarily mean you retain less knowledge. You could have spent years reading books about and researching a certain subject, in comparison to an adult who may have a minimal amount of knowledge on the subject. The assumption that those who are alive longer have more extensive information holds true in some cases, but not all. It is true…

Trump Protests: Positive or Divisive

Let me start by saying I am not a Trump supporter. In fact, I’m almost as far away from supporting the President-Elect as the spectrum goes. That, however, does not mean I can’t criticize the actions of those whose ideologies I do agree with. The American population has become locked into and married to their political parties, blocking out opposing opinions and refusing to have productive conversations. As a passionate liberal, I know that I would struggle to be close friends with someone whose ideologies I so fundamentally disagree with. However, this doesn’t mean that I don’t respect conservatives and…

Electoral College Still Needed?

With the election finally over after long and controversial presidential campaigns, many people either hate or love the electoral college. This system, while outdated, still decides the presidency regardless of the overall popular vote. First created in 1787 during the Constitutional Convention, the electoral college was designed to give the smaller states more leverage in the elections while still maintaining some popular participation. Along with that it was also designed to separate the presidency from Congress, and prevent the election process from being corrupt. According the the Constitution each state receives a number of electors equal to the combined total…
