It was a while ago now, but my New Year’s Eve was a fun night of drinking games and dancing. I happily woke up late the next day with only a minor fuzziness in my head. The first thing on my mind was the fact that I needed food, and since I wasn’t around for […]

Papa Roach F.E.A.R. (Face Everything and Rise) (Eleven Seven Music) 4/5 It’s tough to believe that Sacramento, CA-based hard rock band Papa Roach (yeah, the “cut my life into pieces…” nü-metal-lite guys, led by singer Jacoby Shaddix) are already on the eighth album in their seemingly one-hit-wonder careers. Truth is, the band has consistently put […]

Young Ejecta The Planet (Driftless Records) 4.5/5 Juxtaposing the bittersweet melodies of Leanne Macomber (Neon Indian) and potent, atmospheric dance-pop synths of Joel Ford (Oneohtrix Point Never), collaborative project Young Ejecta is a fresh interpretation of electronic pop. Opening track “Into Your Heart” skips in on plucky eight-bit arpeggios and digital violins, characteristic of Macomber’s […]

New Music Revue: The Gay Nineties fail on Liberal Guilt

The Gay Nineties Liberal Guilt (Fontana North) 2/5 The worst thing an album can do for its audience is not offer anything artistically different or honest. Liberal Guilt sounds tired before it even starts; I found myself wanting it to end by the first song. I’m sick of the same “indie-pop” band hitting the scene […]

Magic: is it a mystical force that can only be harnessed by witches and wizards? Or is it a kind of power that anyone can evoke? Tony Cain, the director of Alan Bennett’s People, now playing at the Langham Court Theatre, delved into the idea that magic can happen right here in the city of […]

This month, talented artist Carlos Colín will be dedicating an exhibit to the impact of language in our daily life and the definitions that surround it.

Ability’s Muse: Women play integral role in health care

Filed under January 21, 2015, Columns

Have you ever wondered why women are perceived as excellent caregivers? We’re led to believe that our universal healthcare system adequately compensates them, but in reality a majority of the care women provide is unpaid, and in extreme situations they have given up careers to care for ailing spouses or loved ones. For patients with […]

And to others, they are their mentors, the people who can teach them invaluable skills. But those who think […]
