By: Ashley Flores, Joshua Clement, and Brittany Fugate The fight for equality persists to this day; however, it should have been implemented decades ago. While the disparity between wage gaps in regards to both gender and race has decreased through the years, the data has proven to be nothing but underwhelming. Data suggest that white women earned 82% of white men earned while Black and Hispanic women earned 65% and 58%. Both race and gender intersect when it comes to determining issues such as wage disparity. Women continue to get severely underpaid than their white male counterparts, but the problem escalates when race and ethnicity is taken into account. The harsh reality is this … [Read more...] about Paying men? Bad. Paying Women? Good
By: Alex Kraskowsky, John Salas, Rigo Barragan For the past two years CSUSB has enforced campus-wide mask mandates to try to keep the students safe while returning to in person classes as well as trying to reduce infection rates. While it is mandatory that all students and staff must be vaccinated in order to even step foot on campus, it is still possible for anyone to be infected with the COVID-19 virus even with masks on. However for a lot of students masks seemed to become an inconvenience since everywhere else in California the mask mandates had been lifted for indoor and outdoor activities. The university issued a statement on March 7, 2022 that said the school would be lifting all … [Read more...] about Are We Being Too Careless?

Starting March of 1937 up until 1939 Hitler began his conquest to take back land that was taken from Germany during the Paris Peace Conference at the end of World War I. The Allies response to these recent invasions of neutral countries was to implement a policy known as appeasement to avoid war. Essentially appeasement is a negotiation tactic to try to avoid escalation of tensions and war. This policy ultimately failed and was one of the leading causes as to why Hitler was able to gain so much ground in Europe and inevitably cause World War II. This key cause of World War II is very important to remember especially today because as the saying goes “history repeats itself.” That … [Read more...] about Same Old Tools for the New Problem: How Appeasement is not a Solution to the Russian-Ukraine War

This has been an issue in the American school system for quite some time, and many parents, students, and teachers feel that it is a detriment to K-12 education. Arts education is widely regarded as an extremely important part of students’ success in and after school.
