A Victim’s Perspective on Sexual Assault

A Victim’s Perspective on Sexual Assault

Mayer Adelberg, Staff Reporter

October 6, 2018

When I was fifteen, I was sexually assaulted. I do not blame myself. I do not blame the youth group organization in which it took place. I blame the assaulter. He was someone in a position of power and someone I trusted as a friend. Inevitably, he turned out to be someone whose memory still sickens m...

Lawrence Su and Alexander Mabanta, Guest Contributors

May 21, 2018

Editor: Measure A is a proposal to amend the Santa Clara City charter to allow a two multi-member district election system with rank-choice voting by single-transferable vote. The plan is to split the city into two districts, straight along El Camino; the heart of the Korean-American community. This...

Hip hop and rap artists should be using their influence to better our culture by making bold political statements and openly displaying their feelings.

Superhero films still going strong

Ethan Bennett, Staff Reporter

May 1, 2018

Some can’t stand superhero movies anymore, but they still belong at the top of the box office, and I can’t wait see more. Recently, acclaimed director James Cameron openly criticized Marvel’s latest film, “Avengers: Infinity War,” and addressed what he calls “Avengers fatigue.” According ...

Trump’s military tweets degrade presidential office

Trump’s military tweets degrade presidential office

Rebecca Arnone, Staff Reporter

April 26, 2018

While President Donald Trump’s social media presence is informative, he should not use Twitter to command our military.   Trump has used Twitter to announce the “fake news awards,” to promote his favorite Fox News shows like “Justice with Judge Jeanine” and “Fox and Friends” and to announce military strikes in Syria. Pronouncing military strategy in the same manner as his demagoguery diminishes the importance of such an announcement.

Opinion: Dishonest administration endangers baseball players

Matt Risko, Staff Reporter

April 23, 2018

De Anza College’s administration clearly demonstrated that student safety is not its top priority by placing Erich Raich, head coach of our baseball team, on administrative leave for trying to keep his team safe by fixing their mistake. When the team walked onto the field on February 24 for a game against Folsom Lake, they found that Robert Bothman’s construction company used clay for ceramic pots in the pitcher’s mound. This clay does not stay firm and sinks like mud, creating a serious injury risk.

Zuckerberg hearing not a joke

Zuckerberg hearing not a joke

Our biggest takeaway from Mark Zuckerberg’s testimony on April 10 should not be memes about his robotic demeanor, but knowledge that Facebook has been spreading misinformation and protecting itself from liabilities while leaving its user’s information exposed. Until now, Facebook has been mostly self-regulated and operated with little transparency. Lawmakers should be acting on behalf of the people by holding Facebook accountable and working towards security.

Attention petitioners: Go away

Simone Clay, Staff Reporter

April 18, 2018

Petitioners at De Anza College should leave our campus and never come back. Students at De Anza are constantly bombarded with petitions. Despite the mostly optimistic spirits on campus, some students just want to get to class without the distraction of intolerable petitioners. They don’t need your time or attention, nor do you owe them anything. They’re smart for coming on to campuses because they can easily pry on the naive, more approachable students and get signatures or a simple response.

Frat parties, student council and the freedom of living on your own. Community college counselors will most likely tell you that you’re not missing out on this college experience by attending their school instead of four-year university. I say screw that. You don’t go just for classes. You don’t...
