2004’s “Shaun of the Dead” seems impossible to live up to. A thrilling blend of hilarious dialogue, gruesome zombie violence, and romantic overtones come together to create a cult classic in every sense of the word. Fast forward three years, and director Edgar Wright is at it again, this time with the action comedy, “Hot Fuzz,” in which a sergeant in the London Police, Nicholas Angel (star and co-writer Simon Pegg), finds himself on the receiving end of an unwanted transfer after his astounding accomplishments do nothing but make his teammates look incompetent.

Candidates running to be the next student trustee met in the Riverside City College cafeteria on April 5. There were two candidates vying for the position: Jorge Flores and Carlos Narango.

It’s not uncommon for a young person to feel dazed and confused when it comes to their future. Riverside City College’s Career and Transfer Center is here to help anyone who is in need of some guidance to the long thing that lies ahead of everyone; life.
If you’re in show business, you act accordingly. You get drunk, get arrested and yell out any insulting remarks that come to mind. Britney Spears is no different. Her recent trips to rehab have apparently affected more than just the pop star. The singer/actress has caught the eye of her fellow industry colleagues like rocker Avril Lavigne who has been openly negative.
An elementary school principle in Toronto, Maria Pantalone, threw feces at a 12-year-old boy. Not only were all charges dropped by a judge, but now the 49-year-old principal might be getting her job back! That’s proof that it pays to be the deputy mayor’s sister.
Being the worst has never been better! Sanjaya Malakar, American Idol’s favorite runner-up is no longer on the show. Of course, to him that is not bad news since he continues to be a major media hit. I mean, he even got invited to the White House Correspondent’s Dinner.
It’s really sad that the bar has been raised even higher for the amount of money to run a successful presidential campaign. It’s become a money competition between the candidates; in the end, the one with the most money has the most power. Every year each presidential candidate tries to fund enough money to advertise and get the media’s attention.
Concerned residents of Riverside showed up at California Baptist University for the Design Plan Workshop presented by the Arroyo Group to showcase the vision plans of Riverside to “revitalize” the city.
