Pro Wrestling: TNT isn’t only for the NBA playoffs

The year was 1999, and I grew up being a pro wrestling fan and watching "WWF Smackdown!" on UPN . Yet, we roll over to 2019 and as far as WWE is concerned, it’s dying slower than a death row inmate who’s awaiting his or her death. I’m very ashamed to promote WWE due to the mockery and extreme...

Why Beyonce’s Lemonade is the best album of the decade

When you think about this decade when it comes to music, what stands out in your mind? "To Pimp a Butterfly" by Kendrick Lamar, "Blonde" by Frank Ocean, "My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy" by Kanye West, or even "Lonerism” by Tame Impala. Now before I go farther, I love those albums but they...

HelloFresh: college student, full-time employee, and no time for grocery shopping

Angelica Chavez, Staff Writer

June 9, 2019

College life, or better yet adulthood sometimes feels as if we have little to no time for anything. For example, a simple task of going to the grocery store to pick out all the necessary ingredients for your family meals, let alone gathering energy to even cook them after spending an hour or two at...

The headline read “Whites Will Become a Minority by 2045.” My first thought was; no big deal, we all knew that was coming. I remember being a child back in the 60s and my parents discussing how America was becoming a new blended race with ancestors from around the globe. We thought it was a good...

March 21, 2019

Sometimes, and it is happening with increasing frequency, I find that the average citizen possesses a profound lack of understanding regarding the most basic precepts of American democracy. Part of the blame rests in our education system. For generations we have passed on a revisionist history that,...

Happy Mardi Gras! Crawfish, King Cake, Gumbo, all that good stuff…and not to mention the parties and the loads of beads to wear. But if you are religious, it also means one thing: time to give up something for Lent. Lent, the 40-day, six-week period that starts from Ash Wednesday and leads into...

R.I.P. Café Adobe: “the best margaritas in Houston”

Ana Gonzalez, Editor-in-Chief

February 20, 2019

When I moved to Houston in March of 2015, I never thought about how exquisite the Tex-Mex restaurant business was. I have deep Mexican roots, so the food I grew up with was not the food I was introduced here in Houston. My boyfriend, who was trying to play it cool at the time before we started to date,...

Notebooks vs. laptops: a controversial comparison

January 29, 2019

Man, times have changed significantly in the past few years. Technology has evolved, from taking notes on notebook paper to taking notes on a reusable Rocketbook and/or on a laptop/tablet. These days, many students now have a variety of ways to learn thanks to technology. I’m 28 years old. I fall ...

“I’m an Angels fan, why am I rooting for the Astros?”

“I’m an Angels fan, why am I rooting for the Astros?”

Ana Gonzalez, Culture Editor

October 24, 2018

When you are from California, there's a good chance that you may be affiliated with a random team that is not from California. Why is that? Do outside teams play better than our home teams? It depends, but that's not the case if you are a Houstonian rooting for the Astros. But the funny thing is,...

We are NOT The Enemy

We are NOT The Enemy

Ana Gonzalez, Staff Writer

September 18, 2018

We’ve been hearing this almost every day: “The media is the enemy of the American people”. When President Donald Trump took office, one of the things he started doing was to attack the media for reporting “false news” on his presidential duties, and his moves. He hated how some journalists...
