The secret is out. Or at least, everybody’s sex secrets are. Thanks to UCR Hookups, a Facebook page that allows people to anonymously submit their private sexual escapades and voyeuristic yearnings, everybody is getting a first-hand look into the details of the UCR community’s sex lives. The stated purpose of the group is to be “a place to post your sexcapades,...
We are becoming more reliant on the Internet than ever before. The frustration and annoyance that students experienced from iLearn going offline for a mere seven hours is testament enough to that. But it’s not just college students who are trading in the scritch of a pen on paper for the clicking of a keyboard—it’s everyone. Businesses can now...
Reclining on a bed clad in a black sequin dress, a woman pulls black stockings over her feet as the camera gives an ample shot of her brown thigh. Giving a sultry look to the camera, she lets her jet-black, long, silky hair down as she saunters to a mirror, applying crimson lipstick to luscious lips and allowing the...
We students have gotten somewhat accustomed to the idea that Riverside isn’t the safest place after dark. Once the clock chimes four, many of us run out to our cars in Lot 30 or Lot 26 while there’s still daylight and repark in a closer parking lot so we won’t have to walk too far after dark.

As Governor Jerry Brown unveiled his new budget for the state of California, which miraculously contains an $851 million surplus, University of California students waited anxiously to see if it addresses our needs. Fortunately, our fears have largely been assuaged. Governor Brown’s new budget sees some $125.1 million restored to the UC after previous guts to education funding. Tuition...
We believed in Lance Armstrong. When trace amounts of corticosteroids, banned during cycling competitions, were found on the way to his 1999 Tour de France victory, we believed his line that they were merely used for a skin rash. In 2004, we trusted that his lawsuit against the publisher of LA Confidential, a book that accused Armstrong of doping, was...
Dear Mayor Bailey, Congratulations are in order for your mayoral victory last year! We hope you are finding your new office comfortable, and wish you the best of luck in undertaking your new duties. As you know, the end of an era has come to the city of Riverside. During last year’s elections, Mayor Ronald O. Loveridge decided not to pursue...
Dear Chancellor Conoley, We at the Highlander would like to warmly welcome you to the University of California, Riverside. Adjusting from the cool seaside breezes of Santa Barbara to the dry Santa Ana gusts of Riverside is quite the transition—no doubt it is as large as the transition from serving as the dean of the Gevirtz Graduate School of Education...
Now that December has announced its arrival with dark, cloudy skies, chilling rain and waning sunlight, Winter Break is only a few final exams away. This means that this issue of the Highlander will be the last published in the year 2012. And since the world will undoubtedly end in a terrific blaze of glory on Dec. 21, 2012,...
Every year, in the early morning hours of the day after Thanksgiving, a ritual occurs where millions of shoppers gather impatiently outside large retailers, attempting to take advantage of special deals. Some camp out for days in the November cold in the hope of purchasing a new knickknack. When the doors finally swing open to deliver them from the...
