Back to school in August..

Posted by Fabiola Gonzalez on July 20, 2015 at 10:02pm 0 Comments

So who else is ready to go back to school in August? I have taken the semester off and I have to say I have missed the late night study sessions and the cramming in homework the night before its due. Although that is not something I recommend, especially since I'm in college. I want to hear about everyone's thoughts and feelings on the upcoming school year. Will you be headed to high school, college, or if your taking some time off. I know here in Florida I will be going through an epic…

The Fiesta!!

Posted by Dallas Gomez on July 27, 2015 at 9:20am 0 Comments

When my grandma first got sick, she was sad because she wasn't able to go to Puerto Vallarta. She was sad because she couldn't go to the fiestas there so my grandpa said he would throw her her own fiesta and that's how it all started.

When my grandma passed away, it hit us all really hard. It's been 6 years now, but it's like we were just getting the call yesterday. We all miss her a ton but we know that she wouldn't want us to be sad, she'd want us to be happy and having fun, so that's… Continue

Donald Trump

Posted by Zaira Lujan on July 20, 2015 at 1:07am 0 Comments

Since Donald Trump first announced his candidacy for president in mid-June, his remarks about Latinos and others have only become worse. As a reminder, in his first speech he made remarks such as:

“When Mexico sends its people, they are not sending their best. They are not sending you. They are not sending you. They are sending people that have lots of problems and they are bringing those problems with us. They are bringing drugs, they are brining crime, they’re rapists, and some I…

I want to tell you guys about the experience I had in this camp. I was there as a counselor and to see all these students that register to learn more about journalism was so great. The camp is basically for high school students pursuing their careers in journalism and the cam in on the month of July just one week. They have the opportunity to stay on the campus dorms, which are amazing, I had never been there and I just got very excited. They also went to the…

Media's Beauty Standards

Posted by Zaira Lujan on July 18, 2015 at 3:13pm 0 Comments

No matter what we are doing, where we are, or the time of day, we are surrounded by the media’s messages. You could be checking out groceries at the local supermarket when you see the blonde, blue eyed woman on the cover of a magazine or in the car when you hear about the latest weight loss product. The tools that the media utilizes to send out its message about beauty standards can vary from social media to advertisements on a billboard. What you see and hear around you has been…

Dear magazine editor...

Posted by Ariadne Venegas on July 15, 2015 at 10:10am 0 Comments

Dear editor,

     I don't think it's right to change models by photoshopping them or adding so much makeup. The reason behind this is because young girls will stress trying to look like that although they do not know that it's false. This is not fair to people reading and looking at the magazine because they may feel self conscious about the way they look. This is also disappointing for the model…

Menopause Makes Women Mad?

I never imagined id be one to write about menopausal mothers, as I would blindly like to forget that my mother has passed through this stage in her life.My boyfriends’ family is going through what seems like the most difficult time with their mother and her erratic behavior. I am sure it is both her repetitive child like behavior that’s slowly making them feel  as though they are losing their mind. In the 2 years that I lived with them, I have witnessed the slow mind of their mother due to…See More
