Filed under Commentary, Uncategorized

Nestled in the Rosedale Village shopping center located in the corner of Calloway Drive and Rosedale Highway, is Ruben’s Mexican and Seafood Restaurant, a newly relocated restaurant that has a lot to offer. From the moment guests walk in, they are greeted by the courteous staff who seem eager and genuinely happy to assist them. Upon seating, the server brought the standard...

Pro-Con, Medical marijuana stirs up the community or not

Pro- With medical marijuana being such a hot topic nowadays, is it really as bad as most people say it is? When most people think about medical marijuana, they think about things tied to it, not the actual medicinal perks that it holds. It is not the medical marijuana’s fault that people rob dispensaries, or that crime rates go up in neighborhoods where dispensaries are...

Game Review- Ubisoft Montreal develops yet another instant classic

Imagine the best elements of a 2D platformer with the challenge of a role-playing game, toss in a hint of turn-based fighting and add a handful of beautiful graphics. This is “Child of Light” in a nutshell. Developers Ubisoft Montreal have another gem on their hands with this game. You play as a small girl named Aurora, who is taken from her father to Lemuria. Upon arriving...

Staff Editorial- Removed from SGA, but given a second chance

May 7, 2014

Filed under Commentary

When you are accused and then later punished for doing inappropriate things during a conference paid for by the school, there is no way you should be able to run again for a spot on the student government. Last semester, some of the members of SGA were accused of drinking alcohol and using drugs during their trip to the Student Senate for California Community Colleges General...

“The Amazing Spider-Man 2” is what you expect from a sequel to a very successful reboot, but with all the new characters and information they threw at us they had enough for another movie in there. The cast was great like the first film, and they use every special effect they could get their hands on to make this movie beautiful visually. Andrew Garfield, who plays Peter...

Music Review- Boring music from legendary Santana

If you’ve heard one Santana song, you have heard them all. “Corazon” is no different than the rest. “Corazon” is the 22nd studio album by Santana, and there are a few songs that stand out to me. But out of 15 tracks, a couple of songs just don’t cut it. One of the best songs on the album is “Margarita” and it features Romeo Santos. The song isn’t bachata,...

Game Review- Newest game in Trials series will not disappoint

Filed under Commentary

A new addition to the Trials series, Trials Fusion brings back everything players loved about it with some new added features that are sure to please anyone from the hardcore to the casual player. Ubisoft and the developers of the game, RedLynx, attempt at adding a storyline to this Trials game, but fail at making it a selling point, so it’s more like an afterthought....

With its big success over the first movie, “A Haunted House,” Marlon Wayans and co-writer Rick Alvarez go back to the well and made a sequel, “A Haunted House 2.”  This movie is almost a carbon copy of the first movie with some hilarious new actors and the return of great characters from before. The movie opens with Wayans, who plays Malcolm, and comedian Affion...

Pro- Con Should athletes be allowed to display multiple colors?

April 23, 2014

Filed under Commentary, Uncategorized

Pro   Over the past couple of years, the sports world has seen some of its athlete role models turn from big time players to convicts. Criminals are not always gang members and that needs to be understood. Saying that a criminal is affiliated with gangs is stereotypical. A person with gang ties can be someone that grew up in a bad neighborhood and has friends ...

Food Review- Mi Peru provides plenty of flavor

April 23, 2014

Filed under Commentary, Uncategorized

Bakersfield has more than its fair share of Mexican restaurants, carts and trucks, yet sadly, the rest of the Spanish-speaking world is grossly underrepresented here. Mi Peru is one restaurant that shows just how badly our city needs more South American offerings. Located at 731 California Ave., just southeast of Maya Cinemas, Mi Peru may be easy to miss on the first pass....

BC puts vital departments to backburner

Filed under Commentary

Bakersfield College prides itself on being a school that focuses on the needs of the students and student success, yet so many departments that actually do work hand-in-hand with students go without resources they need or face staff cuts, which make it virtually impossible for them to increase student success. Recently, it came to my attention that the library staff is facing...
