By Angie Burkhart |Staff Writer| The consumption of Starbucks' sugary, coffee-licious beverages has become a popular trend, that, if consumed once a day, has the potential to cost you up to $1,460 a year. Starbucks, once attracting what Dan Neil of the Los Angeles Times calls "affluent, college-educated progressives, the so-called latte liberals," has become a commodity, and even a fashion accessory for some college students. Despite their wide customer base, some of the brand's loyal customers may not be so aware of its impact on their wallet and health, as well as the environment.

By Mark Kloping |Staff Writer| The hunger that CSUSB students endure is something that cannot be ignored. Classes, group projects, studying and other school activities take up plenty of time in the day for CSUSB students. So, where does a coyote refuel? What are the best and worst spots to consume brain food? Some obvious choices would be the SMSU building—or maybe the Commons.

By Marlyn Rodriguez |Staff Writer| Nine out of 10 adults in North America consume some form of caffeine on a daily basis. We are too dependent on caffeine and it is not as beneficial to us as we think. According to the Mayo Clinic, taking in 200 to 300 milligrams of caffeine equivalent to about two to four cups of coffee a day is not harmful. Christine Weinkauff, a psychology professor on campus, is an avid coffee drinker but said, “In life, moderation is key. There are benefits to a couple cups of coffee a day but getting beyond two or three cups, the benefits begin to become outweighed by the consequences.” Healthy amounts of caffeine has shown to be … [Read more...] about Caution too much caffeine is not a good thing
