Many people argue whether a flu shot is worth getting. Some say it doesn’t work, and a lot of people, such as myself, say it does work. From my experiences with flu shots, it seems to get the job done. Even though you usually get a mild cold or illness a few weeks after getting the flu shot, it has prevented me from getting the flu. When I was young, I wasn’t able...

The art of eyebrows being on fleek has become a big trend in the makeup community and most people interested in perfecting it have no idea where to even begin. The most difficult yet most rewarding part of my makeup routine has always been filling in my eyebrows. It has become a technique that many wish to perfect and some believe in order to achieve the perfect brow, certain...

Public transportation in Bakersfield has been the subject of countless complaints made by residents for years and recently by Bakersfield College students. If we don’t have a car and we can’t find a ride to school, our last resort is often to take the GET Bus. For some of us that’s apparently not enough.

Social media is a big part of people’s lives, particularly for young adults, like myself. So it strikes many people as weird when they learn that I do not have any form of social media. However, this wasn’t always so. I did once have a Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. I’ve been without both Facebook and Twitter for almost four years, and I had an Instagram account until ...

If you cannot handle violence or graphic imagery, this movie is not for you. If you believe we live in a perfect American society, and that no government is as honest as ours, this movie may not be your favorite, but if you watch it, you may learn a thing or two about the world around you. I walked into this movie with little knowledge about its director, Dennis Villanueve,...

Each crisis causes us to consider our safety in places that we’d otherwise be perfectly safe in, as well as consider how we will react if this happened to us. There is college class time being dedicated...

Since Netflix has entered into the streaming realm, weekly episodes cable and local television stations seem to be losing the viewer’s interest with Netflix now producing its own series. I hate when a new show comes out or the season premiere of a show that you have been watching comes out. The first episodes are always slow and leave you hanging, only for you to wait...

But what those people seem to forget is, most of the shows that people enjoy watching on Netflix originated from TV, not Netflix. Sure, Netflix has some awesome original...
