With six games left in the regular season, the Cal State Fullerton softball team will host their final three home

games against Cal Poly San Luis Obispo at Anderson Family Field this Saturday. The Titans enter the series at 32-16 overall, and their 12-3 conference record puts them in first place in the Big West, one game ahead of Hawaii. The Mustangs stand in seventh place with a 4-11 conference record and are 10-35 overall. Leading the way at the plate

for CSUF is freshman Alexa Neil, who is batting .366 in her first year with the Titans. In RBIs, senior Ari Williams leads the team with 36 RBIs this year, and is fifth in the conference. Williams also leads the conference with 19 stolen bases this season and is one of three Titans who has hit a team-leading six home runs. After the conclusion of the

doubleheader on Saturday, CSUF will celebrate the collegiate careers of Williams, a Gretchen Hom and Trish Parks, for the team’s senior celebration. More recently, the duo of catcher Julia Valenzuela and outfielder Kelsie Whitmore had led Fullerton during Big West play, with both hitting .400 in conference play. Valenzuela

has recorded a hit in her past five games, and in that stretch, is 6-for-13 with three RBIs and one walk. Before going 0-for-6 in her last two games against UC Davis, Whitmore was on a seven-game hit streak, going 9-for16 during that stretch along with seven RBIs. SEE HOME


CSUF creates sustainability partnership A program called, “Fill It Forward” allows students to measure their water usage. RIVKA PRUSS

Asst. Copy Editor

Fill it Forward, a program that provides clean water to people in need, recently partnered with Cal State Fullerton at CSUF’s Earth Expo on April 23. Janet Purchase, utility and energy analyst, worked with student affairs to start the program on campus and said she was inspired after attending the Association for the Advancement of Sustainability in Higher Education Conference, last October. “On this campus we are really about sustainability,” Purchase said. “This helps people understand why it’s important to reuse things as opposed to just not recycling them or just using plastic bottles.” Fill it Forward has a sticker that is placed on reusable water bottles to measure the campus-wide impact, according to Purchase. This complements the “Fill It Forward,” app which enables students and faculty to scan the barcode on the sticker and create a profile. After signing up, every time someone refills their water bottle they scan the barcode on the sticker. To track their footprint on the app, users must enter their water bottle’s liquid capacity in ounces. The app’s footprint feature shows users their environmental impact by listing how much


plastic and waste they have diverted from the landfill, greenhouse gases emission reduced and energy saved, according to Purchase. Users can also see this data for the campus using the CSUF tab in the application.

Two cents are donated to a water project that helps countries with limited access to clean water every time someone scans a barcode. Facilities first gave stickers to the housing department, the

environmental health and safety department and the Symbiotic Earth Club among others to hand out stickers on campus. Facilities handed out 1,400 stickers and placed at all 74 water refill stations on campus..

Since the start of the week, the app recorded over 900 total refills on campus. SEE BOTTLE

Business professor founded startup incubator John Jackson discusses his career and opening a Center for Entrepreneurship. CHARITY CLARK

Asst. Social Media Editor

Cal State Fullerton business professor John Bradley Jackson is the director for the Center for Entrepreneurship at the Mihaylo College of Business and Economics. Jackson specializes in entrepreneurship and currently teaches New Venture Creation and New Venture Launch along with other subjects. Before Jackson arrived at CSUF 16 years ago, he began his career in Silicon Valley, working in high-tech marketing and sales with Intel and Apple. While there he met industry giants Steve Jobs and Bill Huyit. “It was a big deal then but I had no idea three years later they were going to be these icons,” Jackson said. Jackson said he figured it would be smart to collaborate outside of his realm. After seeing how rapidly technology was evolving, Jackson said he reached out to engineers. The people he started working with designed semiconductor computers, which are used to create chips for nearly every electronic device, according to the University of Maryland. “That collaboration just caused my career to explode in a good way,” Jackson said. Thankful for his success, Jackson shares his story of how he networked to his students and encourages them to do the same. “Inventors can come up with products, but teams build companies. You got to have a team,” Jackson said. Eventually Jackson found his way to Wall Street, working to help take companies public. After that, Jackson said he started venturing into entrepreneurship and teaching. Jackson helped create the Center for Entrepreneurship,where

he now serves as director. The purpose of this center, which opened up in 2001, is to be a resource and place for support for students who are trying to familiarize themselves with entrepreneurship by offering counseling services to those interested in the field. In January 2015, the Cal State Fullerton Startup Incubator was founded as a branch of the Center for Entrepreneurship. “I was watching students as they came up with ideas in the classroom,” Jackson shared, “I always felt that we needed a place for people to take their ideas and turn them into real companies, not only as students

but as alums.” The Incubator has a location in Irvine and Placentia to give students the opportunity to check out the program or attend one of their free events. Jackson said he felt as if there are students who are eager and ready to begin a startup but they need those resources to go forward. “The people who join our incubator as a resident are very serious about starting a company,” Jackson said. “People are welcomed to come see me anytime if they have an idea for a business.” In hopes of getting more students passionate about the

Study habits to help students ace finals


Megan Miller, University Learning Center training director and coordinator, taught students about the importance of a 30-minute study cycle.

Asst. Social Media Editor

The University Learning Center hosted a test preparation strategies workshop on Wednesday afternoon in the Pollak Library to prepare students for their upcoming finals. Megan Miller, University Learning Center training director and coordinator, led the event, lecturing and discussing the importance of preparing for the end of the semester. Miller discussed how to tackle test anxiety, create a study plan and what to do in the moments

leading up to an exam. The event opened with an activity where students ranked how prepared they were for their finals on a scale of 1-10 and listed why they gave themselves this score. Students then discussed what it means to be prepared. Armando Garcia, a communication sciences and disorders major, shared some of the ways he works to fight test anxiety and prepare for finals. “After studying and going over topics, l am able to teach somebody everything that I have learned and that helps you be prepared,” Garcia said. “Focus and try to imagine what’s going to be on the test and test for that. Definitely quiz yourself, go over your notes.”

TEST PREPARATION COURSES California State University, Fullerton

Miller also said to remember that it is only one test that you will take in your life. “Your exam scores don’t define you. I wish I’d just told my younger self grades are important but learning is what matters,” Miller said. Knowing academic success is important but it’s only one piece of the puzzle, Miller said. After a discussion about test anxiety and stress relief, Miller helped students learn how to make a study plan. This plan included implementing the Pomodoro Technique, which is studying for 25 minutes, then taking a five-minute break. Miller also said the first two minutes are always the most difficult when studying, and that is

when students must be the most focused. The study cycle is an important piece to successful exam taking, according to Miller. The cycle starts with previewing material before a class lecture, attending class, reviewing material as soon as the class is over, studying daily, and testing yourself on the material over time. Miller also provided a few pointers for students as finals quickly approach. She encouraged students to get enough sleep and keep up with their physical health to help with studying. Garcia said the best way he is able to combat test anxiety is to start studying in advance and not wait until right before the test.

As for the actual test, Miller said students should learn as much as they could about the test format, prepare any necessary materials early, get to class early and avoid getting distracted by others. Miller encouraged students to use other campus resources, whether it be for test preparation or for their health. “One of the best parts about Cal State Fullerton, in my opinion, is all the free resources we have to help students with anxiety and things of that nature,” Miller said, “I know Student Wellness and Counseling and Psychological Services do a lot of stuff leading up to it, so I’d absolutely encourage students to take advantage of those resources.”

The water bottle barcode and “Fill It Forward” app enables students to see their environmental impact in real-time. CONTINUED FROM 1 Since the start of the week, the app recorded over 900 total refills on campus. Salvador Pulido, a business administration major, stated his interest in the application. “It’s useful for people that want to track their water intake, and it also provides a twist because now you’re interacting more with the environment and you’re realizing how much plastic you’re not using,” Pulido said. As of April 29, there have been 146 app downloads,Purchase

said. “I’m thinking we could make a big impact if more students would participate. I mean, because we have like 40,000 students it’s just getting the word out and helping them understand the program,” Purchase said. Jillian Brazelton, a choral music education major, said she has seen the stickers posted on water filling stations and is appreciative for the campus taking steps to be more environmentally conscious. “I do know that it’s taking

steps to minimize plastic waste, and that is something I’m very appreciative of. I also have like reusable straws and stuff that I use. I’m appreciative of the university for taking steps towards that goal,” Brazelton said. Purchase said the Center for Sustainability has plans to create a tutorial document within the next two weeks for students to understand how to activate and use the application. The center also plans to create graphs to track their data and show the growth of the program on campus.

Review: ‘Violet Street’ strums heartstrings Local Natives’ new album takes listeners on a journey through past love. MADELINE GRAY

Asst. Opinion Editor

NATHAN NGUYEN Lifestyle Editor

Though it may have been overshadowed by other music and movie premieres this weekend, alternative-indie rock band Local Natives released their fourth studio album “Violet Street” on Saturday. After establishing themselves in the alternative scene with albums “Hummingbird” and “Sunlit Youth,” the Los Angeles-based band returned with a fresh, experimental sound on their latest album, while maintaining their unique style. “Violet Street” is composed of 10 songs and runs for 40 minutes, leaving listeners wanting more. The album opens with the ethereal song “Vogue.” The violin weaved in with other instruments gives the beginning an almost cinematic flair. The choral background vocals with their ascending high notes mirror the lyrics, which touch on seeking a higher place. Listeners will be singing along after their first listen to “When Am I Gonna Lose You,” which is about having so much love for someone that one can’t help but worry over losing them. The smooth harmonies add to the style with lyrics like, “You were floating to me in a slow motion fade / Could I finally see between belief and faith?” The catchy vibe of the chorus and bass make the single hard to forget. “Cafe Amarillo” is layered with percussion, guitar and keys to give the song depth. The keyboard effects and use of backup singers give this song a retro sound, deviating from most songs on the album. Lyrics like “There’s no shelter without you there,” “One day forever the sun in our eyes,” show that the band wrote on facing hardships in life but held on to that person who makes everything feel right in the world. The interlude “Munich II” is a nice transition to the next song on the album. The vocals and instrumentals have a light feeling similar to “Vogue.” The full eight minutes of this 46-second instrumental will be released on the album’s deluxe


edition, said guitarist Ryan Hahn in an interview with Consequence of Sound. “Megaton Mile” is a playful jam about meeting the world’s end, “Hold me close in the ending / In a flashing light.” The bass drives the song with a complementing drum beat, making it the perfect song for dancing or swaying along in the car. The harmonies on the chorus are typical of Local Natives’ style. Overall, it carries a futuristic sound with obscure production effects creeping in. In the last 30 seconds of the song, the instrumental deconstructs and builds back together. “Someday Now” begins with upbeat drums but quickly fades into a somber serenade about lost love. The song explores the dynamic of a relationship that loses its spark with lyrics like “Reflections on my face / Echoes where we speak / Close enough to touch / Far enough to flee.” As energetic as it starts,

it quickly fades into slow, melancholic longing. A bass rift begins “Shy” as the rambunctious song explores the aspects of masculinity with the chorus, “Shy under the weight of desire / Tame turning into wild / I see but don’t recognize.” A steady combination of drums and guitar strums introduces “Garden of Elysian” as the song takes listeners to a different dimension. The track gives off a Western vibe with an edge, as heavy bass strums and a constant kick drum convey the intensity of a showdown in the wilderness. “Garden of Elysian” is arguably the best song on the album as it stands out from the other more mellow songs. A piano interlude starts “Gulf Shores” before the band goes off on an electric guitar solo that rips through the air. The lyrics bring up the theme of breathing, similar to their older song “Breakers.”

The final song, “Tap Dancer,” tells the story of an artist, “Champion on the podium / Another win / Quiet when the crowd’s gone / Deafening.” In the music video for “Tap Dancer,” an entire spectrum of instrumentals, colors and emotions are all emitted through the dancer’s masterful performance. The lines “It’s a tap dance to you / It’s a minefield to me,” and “Everything was easier before / Take me back / Before I knew of artificial roses,” tip-toe the balancing act of reminiscing the past and living in the present. “Tap Dancer” ends with the slow strum of the guitar as it decrescendos and fades, leaving listeners with a sense of sad satisfaction. Overall, the transitions between each song flow seamlessly. Local Natives have a more precise, mature sound than previous albums but long-time fans can easily recognize their distinct style.

Column: Do not mock Jewish symbols The New York Times anti-Semitic cartoon dishonors my culture.


Asst. Copy Editor

Most days, the gold Jewish Star of David necklace my mom made hangs around my neck. Being Jewish has always been a part of my identity, so much so that I started to go by my Hebrew name Rivka, a name from the Torah or the Hebrew Bible, a year ago. As I’ve become more connected to my Judaism, I have seen anti-Semitism rear its ugly head, more and more. The New York Times International published a cartoon depicting Benjamin Netanyahu, the Israeli Prime Minister, as a dog on April 25. Around his neck is a blue Star of David used as a leash. Netanyahu leads President Donald Trump, who is blind and wearing a kippah, a traditional skullcap, worn typically by Jewish men. Mistaken with my trust, the New York Times has disappointed me. While their cartoon may have been published in their opinion section that does not justify its publication. I agree with most Jews, who say it is possible to have a genuine critique of Israel or their politics without being anti-Semitic. But New York Times International failed. I am disgusted and angered by anti-Semitism which deserves a place alongside Nazi-era propaganda. The cartoon is more harmful than humorous


as it attempts to create fear in Jews like me, who are open about their identity. The New York Times issued an apology stating that the cartoon was offensive. However, if the Times acknowledges that this cartoon was insulting, I question why it was ever approved in the first place. The two symbols used in the cartoon are inherent to Jewish identity, religion and culture and to draw them mockingly is

anti-Semitic. My Star of David is a source of pride because it connects me with thousands of years of history. It also connects me with my mom, who raised me to be proud of my Jewish heritage. Seeing these symbols being openly mocked makes me sad and angry because it demonstrates a lack of respect toward the Jewish community. Mocking a symbol and trying to change it from a source of pride

to a source of humor is neither funny nor opinionated, it is racist. Additionally, Trump is depicted in Orthodox garb to look stupid, which further paints the Orthodox Jewish community in a harmful and disrespectful way, seeking to further stereotype us. Over the past two years, I have become involved with the Orthodox Jewish community where I have learned about

my identity and values and where I have received love and support. Netanyahu, a recognized Jewish leader, is shown painted as a dog which sends the message that all Jews are viewed as inferior or subhuman. I am disgusted that the New York Times has made me feel less than my colleagues or friends who are not Jewish. The New York Times cartoon is comparable to a 1940s cartoon printed in Lustige Blatter, a German humor magazine. The image was of a Hasidic Jew, a form of Orthodox Judaism, leading Britain Prime Minister Winston Churchill across the globe. Both images represent anti-Semitic views and highlight Orthodox Jews in a way that stereotypes and derogates them. A 2019 cartoon that can be similarly compared to the Lustige Blatter piece almost 80 years later, terrifies me. The difference is that today’s criticism of Israel is often used to disguise anti-Semitism, which is what this modern cartoon did. Seeing my symbols being mocked does not make me feel afraid to wear them, because they will always be a source of pride, even if drawn to be a symbol of shame. The unfortunate consequence of mocking Israeli politicians in anti-Semitic fashion, is that individuals who are struggling to find their Jewish identity may be swayed to not wear Jewish symbols, or move away from their heritage out of fear. Using images like the one published in the New York Times to mock these symbols that carry so much pride and history for Jewish people, is an attempt to strip them of their value. Such harmful images deserve to be condemned.

Four-year win streak against UC Davis CSUF baseball will play three of their next four games against the Aggies. ADAM MALDONADO Asst. News Editor

Cal State Fullerton baseball returns home this weekend to host UC Davis for a three-game series. The Titans are fresh off a 10-4 win against UC Irvine, a non-conference victory that saw the Titans even the season series against the Anteaters. This marks the 10th consecutive season where UCI did not have a season series win against Fullerton. The Titans put their offensive prowess on display Tuesday night, particularly in the fifth inning which saw six runs scored for CSUF. Jason Brandow opened the lead for the Titans after hitting a three-run home run, his second home run of the season. AJ Curtis had a spectacular night behind the plate, going 4-for-4 along with an RBI. The Titans’ two straight victories over UCI came after a five-game losing streak. CSUF currently sits at 18-22 overall and is 5-7 in conference play. They sit at fifth place in the Big West conference. Outfielder Mitchell Berryhill played particularly well in CSUF’s last game, going 2-4 with one run in his performance. Berryhill leads all of college baseball with the nation’s best batting average at .444. He would stand to be the only player in CSUF history to win the batting title if he stays atop of the rankings. The senior also leads the Big West conference and sits eighth in the nation with an on-base percentage of .518. CSUF has dominated the series in recent seasons against

Pitcher Kyle Luckham has appeared in 13 games this season, pitching 43 2/3 innings in his first year with the Titans.

UC Davis, winning the past 11 match-ups against the Aggies. Overall, the Titans have won 38 of the 42 games played against Davis since their first meeting in 2005. UC Davis’ last win against the Titans dates back more than four years, in a 3-2 win on Aggie soil on April 10, 2015. UC Davis comes into the

contest this season having won four of their previous five games which featured a sweep against Long Beach State. The Aggies lost to the University of Nevada Reno, falling to the Wolfpack 7-3. UC Davis currently sits at 1523 overall and 6-9 in conference play. Sophomore infielder Tanner Murray leads the Aggies

with a .384 batting average, second in the Big West conference behind Berryhill. Murray went 1-4 with an RBI in the Aggies’ game against the Wolfpack. The series against the Titans will wrap up a four-game road trip for UC Davis. The Aggies are in eighth place in the Big West. The Titans’ season has not


fared as well as previous years as they tread just under .500 for their overall record. Falling sub-.500 for the season would be a first in CSUF baseball history since joining the NCAA Division 1 in 1975. The weekend series kicks off Friday night with the first pitch scheduled for 7 p.m.
