Joe Biden is the perfect candidate to defeat Trump
With the 2020 Presidential Election just over a year away, the pressure is on for those in the Democratic party to step up against President Trump in a race for the presidency. With already 21 Democrats so far announcing their bid, it will be a difficult challenge for the candidates to stand out to Democratic voters.

Trump dodges bullet with Mueller Report
It’s been just over two years since Donald Trump took the office of the presidency, and ever since he’s dealt with constant controversy surrounding his possible connection to Russia during the 2016 election.

The Pinata District: More than just Pinatas
On a cloudy Saturday afternoon, I found myself in an area of Los Angeles known as the “Pinata District.” Which as it sounds, had hundreds if not thousands of pinatas for sale, but the pinatas were just a small part of what the market had to offer.

GM not adapting to eco-friendly car culture
In the society that we live in, the economy plays a major role in how companies plan for their future. If the economy is strong companies can expand and be able to hire new workers. If the economy is in a recession, companies will have to make cutbacks to save money. But for General Motors, their situation proves that no matter how strong the economy is, no one is safe from losing their job.
Stinkin Crawfish: pretty stinkin’ good
As someone who enjoys the Louisiana culture of Cajun seafood, my excitement couldn’t be held within as I arrived to Stinkin Crawfish in Monrovia with an empty stomach and high expectations for quality seafood, hopefully at a reasonable price. Upon my arrival, I noticed some customers who were sitting in an outdoor seating area of the restaurant who had a paper table cover on their table while also wearing bibs as they enjoyed their meals. Trying not to laugh about how funny they looked, I …
