Women deserve place in sports world reporting

Most people associate sports and athleticism with men. However, there is reluctance to women sharing the same spotlight as men. More women are making groundbreaking achievements in the sports world, such as the first women’s ski hill jump in this year’s Winter Olympics in Sochi. More women are showing up to sporting events to catch the game’s best hit or scoring play, not just as fans but also as reporters. However in a society that...

California may become the land of death and dust

Citizens of California are facing a serious water crisis in the coming years, and it doesn’t seem like it’s going to end any time soon. The lack of rain, over watering of desert lawns and hour long power showers have finally taken their toll on the state’s water reservoirs. Californians are facing a drought so severe that the state’s drinking water supply is threatened. The situation is so dire that Gov. Jerry Brown declared a state...
