After some four decades tucked away in a subterranean corner of Cal State Long Beach, the Daily 49er is finally heading to higher ground. In the coming weeks, the campus newspaper of record will be leaving its longtime home in the Social Sciences/Public Administration Building basement and moving to another spot in the Language Arts buildings on Upper Campus, closer to the library and closer to more throngs of CSULB life. To...

Dear Editor, I write in response to the article, “Bill Maher’s comments grossly misrepresent the nature of religion,” dated Oct. 16, 2014. I whole-heartedly would like to thank you for your courage to publish an honest and powerful piece in an effort to portray an accurate image of Islam and Muslims. It is very troubling for mainstream American Muslims, who are disgusted with the un-Islamic actions of groups...

Letter to the Editor: In response to Hunter Paul’s take on the Ukraine crisis

As a person with both Russian and American education, I have a deep concern about the lack of objective information that Hunter Paul is using in his article about the Ukraine crisis. The true conflict in Ukraine is not between its people but between the corporate businesses. If Hunter Paul made his research, he would have known that American oil company Shell has a huge interest in natural resources found in the eastern part...

Along with other media outlets, the Daily 49er has not given Beach Fund enough attention in the past, which is why I would like to explain exactly how crucial of a program Beach Fund is for the continued success of Cal State Long Beach. The Beach Fund program is dedicated to support the general needs of the university.  Student resources that the Beach Fund program supports include: tutoring services, the career development...

Letter to the Editor: No Doubt in this Rebuttal

Adapting Faith Through Doubt is a theatrical adaptation of the Pulitzer Prize winning play Doubt: A Parable by John Patrick Shanley. This means that the script is used word for word, but not that the entire play is produced, and some of the imagery/choreography varies from the original production. I used light shadow theatre to show demonic possession and spiritual warfare. The play ran from May 1-3 in the USU Beach Auditorium. The...

Letter to the Editor: Obamacare has affected many Americans

How is Obamacare working out for your family? The new health insurance program is disrupting the healthcare system as well as the insurance program. I have already begun to see the negative effects in Kaiser Permanente. In the past, Obama said, “If you like your healthcare plan, you can keep your healthcare plan. Period.” This does not seem to be the case. I am one of more than one million Californians who...
