Joseph Campbell has interviewed and explained the development stages to becoming a real hero or heroine. Bill Moyer took upon himself to host the interview and ask specific questions that can make or break stages within the process.

    In simpler terms, our collective, permanent conditions linked to our brain combine with current, more temporary situations in our life to create a dream. The song, The Boat of The Fragile Mind subtly poked at the words of Campbell, “I dream about you all the time, [y]ou must be on my mind… [t]o live to tell the tale of it” (Mare, 2013).

    being put into context. How many times does a human blink daily? How many of those blinks are flicked at a screen, more specifically the screen of a smartphone? The realization might startle some. The problem does not lie in the attachment, but rather the effects they have on the lives of all who use them. They have crept their way into many if not most aspects of our lives. For instance, count the number of times someone has walked out the door and rushed back inside to retrieve their phone,…

    While their opinions are to be respected, to simply state it, there is a better option that exists. Some believe that this bill implies that the “First Amendment should be treated ‘not as a right but as a privilege’” (Sigmon 1). What is false about this belief is that all legislation can be deemed unconstitutional if it is. The lawmakers of America want to protect citizens while respecting the rights granted to them in the Constitution. It is part of their job to use the Constitution as a…

    “California equal pay bill may be toughest in nation” (Masunaga 2015). This article was written by Samantha Masunaga and published in the Los Angeles Times. The Los Angeles Times has been in circulation for more than 130 years and has won over 40 Pulitzer prizes. The paper has been accused of having a liberal bias, but I do not feel that it has any bearing on this particular story. Samantha Masunaga attended UC Berkley Graduate School of Journalism.

    Of course, Jack and Bill also have more investigations to do thanks to some information that has come to light regarding Mr. Gowen. I simply adore the pairing of these two--kind of like the dynamic duo of the Old West. One has to go by the books, and the other can be a little more creative in his interpretation of the law. Together, they are invincible as they solve whatever crime or perceived crime comes their way. As Bill, Jack is handsome, rugged and certainly committed to justice at any…
