SPORTS: OPINION: Dallas Cowboys all in?

SPORTS: OPINION: Dallas Cowboys all in? By Vicente MendozaSports EditorPublished Tuesday, April 23, 2024 After a horrendous exit from the playoffs this past season, the Cowboys are once again back to square one. After the horrible loss, Cowboys owner and General Manager Jerry Jones said the team would be “all in” following this season. Since the start of the off-season, the Cowboys have not shown this “all in” mentality, but have shown they might be headed to a necessary rebuild next season. Vicente Mendoza, Sports Editor On the first day, they lost several key free agents to free agency. The first to go was running back Tony Pollard, who was the main Dallas back in 2023. Though his first year as a starter fell flat, he showed a lot of promise in his final games with th...

OPINION: Amazon house might be the next step for younger buyers

OPINION: Amazon house might be the next step for younger buyers By Juan Carlos PuenteEditor-in-chiefPublished Thursday, April 11, 2024 With the housing crisis at an all-time high, the majority of one-bedroom, one-bathroom houses are in excess of $100,000. And most apartments around the nation run $2,000 to $3,000 a month; it can be difficult for younger buyers to find a place to live after college. The houses themselves are akin to a gentrified mobile homes that fold outward into a studio apartment-type fitting. The catch is that they’re only $10,000 to $11,000, or roughly $300 a month for around three years. Juan Carlos Puente Amazon will ship the house to your plot of land or home and from there you can place them anywhere with 20 feet of space and unfold the walls an...

OPINION: ‘What? Like it’s hard?’

OPINION: ‘What? Like it’s hard?’ By Alexia AlemanBridge Staff PodcasterPublished Thursday, April 4, 2024 For the last three years, my life has revolved around school. It has mentally, physically and emotionally drained me. Adults—I mean the older, mature, wiser adults, because if we want to be technical, I am an adult, and truth-be-told, I am not wise—think we’re lazy, irresponsible and do nothing with our lives. Never mind we have lectures, homework and we have to study, do countless assignments, read all the assigned readings and do all that for each class—five classes total. Alexia AlemanBridge Podcaster and Staff Writer Oh! Some even have real jobs. We have to maintain healthy relationships and friendships, balance school with our social life but “It’s not that hard....

OPINION: Greatest love story of all time

OPINION: Greatest love story of all time Film Review By Jorge EspinozaSocial Media Co-ManagerPublished Tuesday, April 2, 2024 “You’re losing me to a life of my own,” says the lead character of Sofia Coppola’s Priscilla, Priscilla Presley.  Adapted from Priscilla Presley’s memoir Elvis and Me, Coppola gives the audience a look into the tragic romance of a young girl falling out of love with an American rock legend and falling in love with a life of independence. Jorge EspinozaSocial Media Co-Manager Coppola is known for making films depicting the heartache and loneliness felt by women. However, in Priscilla, this was a 14-year-old girl—at least at the start of the story. The wonder of Priscilla comes from its duality in immersing the audience in the blush-toned, blue-satin a...

OPINION: ‘Spring Breakers’ a misunderstood film

OPINION: Spring Breakers a misunderstood film Movie Review By Camila MendezBridge Staff WriterPublished Thursday, March 7, 2024 “Live life to the fullest … Spring Breeeeeeaaaaaak ... Spriiiiiing Breaaaaaak forevaaa,” Alien (James Franco) yelled. I envision that Harmony Korine’s film Spring Breakers will be well-known in the future. Even if you’re unfamiliar with the movie, you might recall when it was deemed a “Disney Girls Gone Wild!” projection. This is solely because Selena Gomez and Vanessa Hudgens, some of Disney’s proteges, star in this crime thriller. If you consider yourself a movie connoisseur, it’s by A24 … another reason to see it if you haven’t. Camila Mendez This film is about four women, college friends, who urgently decide to get out of town and experience...

OPINION: BOOK REVIEW: Modern tragedy in If We Were Villains

OPINION: BOOK REVIEW: Modern tragedy in If We Were Villains By Alexia AlemanBridge Staff PodcasterPublished Thursday, Feb. 22, 2024 “You can justify anything if you do it poetically enough,” M.L. Rio writes in her debut novel If We Were Villains. Although the novel is full of beautiful quotes, this one completely captures the essence and meaning of the story. The novel follows seven young actors studying Shakespeare at a prestigious university. At the center, Oliver Marks is completing a 10-year prison sentence for the murder of Richard Sterling, his former classmate and friend. Alexia Aleman Complex relationships join together the seven friends. Even between friends, feelings of envy and hatred become dangerous rather quickly. Shakespeare becomes the center of their lives ...

OPINION: Seduction of ‘Saltburn’

OPINION: Seduction of Saltburn By Destiny R. SanchezAssistant EditorPublished Wednesday, Feb. 21, 2024 The paced and satiric displays of wealth and pleasure unveil the true motives of the upper class in Saltburn. This masterpiece of cinema flashes back to the 2000s, as molded by director Emerald Fennell. “Is there really ever such a thing as an accident, Elspeth?” Oliver Quick, the main character of Saltburn, asked. “I don’t know. Accidents are for people like you. For the rest of us, there’s work. And unlike you, I actually know how to work.” Destiny Sanchez Saltburn keeps the audience captivated every minute while peeling away at each character, frame-by-frame. Full of Oscar-worthy performances led by Barry Keoghan’s character, Quick, who displays his ability to seduce an...

OPINION: Digital dharma and the zeitgeist

OPINION: Digital dharma and the zeitgeist By Ana VaraBridge Staff WriterPublished Tuesday, Feb. 6, 2024 It is Jan. 24 as I begin to write this and the much-awaited Academy Award nominations have finally been announced. Whether you’ve liked Maestro since Bradley Cooper peed his pants in A Star Is Born or saved a Cillian Murphy as Scarecrow edit on your TikTok favorites, today is a big day. Though, like any other day living in a hellscape, our seemingly vacuum-existing opinions have become almost laughably good examples of playing stupid games and winning stupid prizes. I took a class on Hinduism and Buddhist philosophy this past Wintermester with Instructional Assistant Professor Jude Galbraith, and as the aftermath of four straight hours of Abhidharma metaphysics finally gives wa...
