"Street Fighter" turned me into a stone-cold fighting machine and "Fortnite" has given me lightning-fast carpentry skills. That stuff is great and all, but I need to learn more practical skills for tod...

Utter confusion, vintage arcade machines, old black-and-white newsreels, random hours, cash only, dim lighting, old newspapers, no menu and reasonably good pizza.

Sleep for dinner is no longer a meal, you have graduated into your professional life where your part-time job at Jack In The Box is no longer a reality. No...

Sipping on a cool drink with a fancy colored straw while relaxing sounds all too intriguing. It’s a picture on Instagram that will attract all the likes but, in my eyes, this is just another accessory. While this image gets attention through the virtual world, that one plastic straw is going back into...

In the context of an evermore polarizing world exacerbated by social media echo chambers singing to their own tunes, what can we do to find harmony with our fellow humans?  First, we need to decide if singing together is indeed a goal worth striving for.  Maybe you think some people are just too ...

Picture fans in the bleachers cheering for the Wildcats, tailgating and the thrill of football players beating a rival school. As we all know, Chico State lacks this American pastime, but a football team is exactly what we need for our quiet little town. Having a football team would change our...
