OPINION: Times they are a-changin’

OPINION: Times they are a-changin’ By David Gomez Jr.Editor-in-chiefPublished Monday, Nov. 16, 2020 It seems most of my friends were relieved with the results of the latest presidential election. To be honest, so was I. I, too, think our president has done an odd job in the White House. I have found it nice to no longer hear his name, or the administration’s, on television and every news station every day. Will president-elect Joe Biden do a better job? I can’t say that he will. So far, I like his presentation and that’s all I can say so far. Now that I have your attention, 2020 has been an excruciating year for so many people around the world. Since I’m a U.S. citizen, I can only speak on our behalf. David Gomez Jr.Editor-in-chief COVID-19 flipped our world upsid...

OPINION: Don’t give up on world, don’t give up on voting

OPINION: Don’t give up on world, don’t give up on voting By Jessica RodriguezDirector of PhotographyPublished on Monday, Nov. 9, 2020 What an extremely wild year. We’ve gone through highs but mostly lows. A deadly virus gave us a cold start at the beginning of the year, murder hornets followed soon after, gender reveal parties were fire (literally), we had famous celebrities—most recently with longtime Jeopardy host Alex Trebek on Nov. 8—and political legends die and to top it off this seems like the year we’ve seen the most protests due to police brutality. America is begging for things to improve and it’s our duty to listen. As the year slowly comes to an end, I know voting may have been the last thing on people’s minds. I know many busy students reading this struggled to fi...

OPINION: Perplexing pandemic times

OPINION: Perplexing pandemic times By David Gomez Jr.Editor-in-chiefPublished Monday, Sept. 7, 2020 So far as editor-in-chief for a second semester, it is already overwhelming but I cannot see anyone else doing what I do. I am sure anyone can do what I do, especially if they have organization skills--seriously. Anyway, that was just me blowing off some steam, but blowing off steam can get people into strange situations or start something they never intended to start. One of the things blowing up my realms of social media has been that Texas A&M International University and the City of Laredo are in some type of “battle.” This disagreement calls into question TAMIU choices regarding the pandemic. Leaving flex scheduling and both buildings, the Academic Innovation Center...

OPINION: Internships, more hurt by COVID-19

OPINION: Internships, more hurt by COVID-19 By Tomas CruzBridge Marketing DirectorPublished Monday, May 11, 2020 The Spring 2020 semester rapidly became one of the toughest semesters for many students’ academic journey at TAMIU. The coronavirus pandemic impacted not only our university, but the rest of the world. As a Texas A&M International University senior, I faced many bumps on the road to finish my degree. This spring semester I was interning at a marketing/advertising agency for my COMM 4350 Internship course. Due to the COVID-19 shutdown, many interns faced issues with internship locations closing and not being able to complete their hours. While some of us were able to work remotely, many others were unfortunately not able to return to their internship because ...

OPINION: Being essential these days

OPINION: Being essential these days EDITOR'S POINT of VIEWBy David Gomez Jr.Editor-in-chiefPublished Monday, April 20, 2020 The coronavirus, SARS-CoV-2, causes the disease COVID-19. The ‘rona, as some people are calling it, came fast and deadly. It added pressure to an already fragile economy. At the front lines of keeping the economy afloat, other than the medical, grocery store clerks, farmers and janitorial staff who deserve so much praise, are also the other “essential” businesses. I am currently one of those essential workers. David Gomez Jr. I work in a hardware store, yet it doesn’t feel essential. I recently went from a part-time to a full-time employee. Nowadays, the type of customers who come into the store are those tired of being at home. It used to be just t...

OPINION: Time on our hands

OPINION: Time on our hands Allison Villareal | Special to The Bridge ARTIST’S STATEMENTBy Allison VillarealBridge contributing illustratorPublished Monday, April 20, 2020 For this concept, I intended to use variety, contrast and movement to demonstrate the overwhelming and uneasy feelings that can be experienced when having too many things in our hands. I used variety by having hands of many sizes holding different objects that represent time, relationships, health, financial issues, chores, education, entertainment and self care. I used contrast to highlight the dark pressures and stress that can be behind each responsibility that is being held. I used movement to express the variety of weight each hand is carrying.

Climate Change: a Global Crisis

OPINION: Climate change a global crisis Jose L. Martinez | BRIDGE contributing illustratorThis illustration published March 30, 2020. ARTIST'S STATEMENTBy Jose L. MartinezBridge contributing illustratorPublished March 30, 2020 For this concept, my intention is to use line, shape, value, form and space to create proportions, variety, unity and emphasis. Using these art elements and design principles, I remind people how plastics are a contributing factor to climate change. To support this message, I creatively combine the unrelated ideas of bullying with climate change.  After personifying all these different components, I use value and roughly the same scale to unify them; however, to create contrast and emphasis on the world globe, I arrange it at the center of the co...

Ready for everything, master of none

Four years ago, I stepped onto the grounds of Texas A&M International University with a fresh set of notebooks in my backpack, a shiny new student ID card (complete with an awkward photo), and a brave little heart. (more…)

Living on campus vs. on campus living

By Lydia Dean   Before anything, there is a difference between just “living on campus” and “on campus living”. “Living on Campus” is the physical act of actually staying—day in and day out—on campus. The university is your home for the semesters to come. “On Campus Living”, on the other hand, is creating a life for oneself when being on a college campus. Taking parts in campus wide events, working for the university, or even running an organization.   (more…)

This is the end

By Carlos Leon Many religions tend to break down into various smaller denominations, especially the Christian religion. There is one specific religion in particular based on Christian beliefs called the Church of the End of Times (Iglesia del Fin del Tiempo or IFT is the name and acronym in Spanish). This church has a unique prescience throughout most of Latin America (more…)
