Women continue to fall short

The women’s soccer team was unable to snap its two game losing streak falling to the defending 2004 national champions Cypress College, with a score of 4-1 in a conference match up on Sept. 30.

Students smoking in Lovekin an issue

The new Lovekin Field complex lacks accommodations for student smokers, which explains why there are so many cigarette butts littering the ground in the complex, and smokers are present throughout the day. Board policy for Riverside Community College prohibits smoking on campus outside of the designated smoking areas; the closest smoking area for the Lovekin Field is in front of Technology “A”, which is across the canal and parking lot “F”, above the big wall.

The key to completing a presentable outfit is more obvious than you might think. I hate to give out a good secret but for the sake of fashion I feel like it is my duty to spill the beans.

Some artists such as the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Ben Harper, and Radiohead continued to make music, regardless of what was popular or played on mainstream radio.

Gas is only the beginning

The lifeblood of the American economy and the American lifestyle is oil. Black gold, Texas tea, the stuff that has millions of uses from plastics to food additives, the stuff that we have gone to war over, the stuff without which we, the American people would be completely helpless.
