Editorial: Our Dream ASUCI Slate

This is just for laughs. The people represented here by no way reflect how the Editorial Board views the candidates running in the current campaign, or the positions they are running for.

With so many choices, and with so many heated campaigns promising a dramatic and tense election season, we should step back, lighten up and think about which politicians could best fill them.

Editorial: UCI’s #FirstWorldProblems

Things seem to be sailing quite smoothly on our fair campus and sometimes the state of the world is a little too heavy for such an unseasonably warm January. So instead of editorializing something hard-hitting, we’ve chosen to throw our hats in to the whiny college student competition.

Editorial: President Trump’s America

Picture a place with no Chinese imports, Eastern-European prostitutes for the taking and fountains of oil in every major shopping center. We don’t know about you, but this sounds like America to us. A brand new, beautiful America. And who better to lead us on than a man who takes “amber waves of grain” to heart so much that he also takes it to his hairdresser?

Editorial: Saturated Satire for Our Fat World

Maybe this is overly optimistic, but in the midst of a war, an economic recession and the dollar's declining value, America still seems vital and the future auspicious. Despite price increases in everything from tuition to gas, Americans were once able to hold their heads high in at least one category, but not anymore. It was news from Australia that shattered the country's confidence...

UCI Men’s Basketball Player Tommy Rutherford Laments Abrupt End To Season

On game days, UCI Men’s Basketball senior Tommy Rutherford eats breakfast at around eight or nine in the morning, begins his stretches in the weight room, shoots around and grabs a balanced pre-game meal that consists of carbs, protein and some veggies. He prepares for the game by going over the film of the opposing team and discussing the team’s game plan with his coaches and teammates. Sometimes he allows himself to take a nap and takes about an hour more for shooting around. When all his ritualistic pre-game preparations are over, his team has their warm-up time on the court. Finally, it’s time to play basketball.
