Trump wins presidency with 290 electoral votes Angelica Sosa Reporter

The VOICE

Hillary Clinton was ahead of Donald Trump in the polls by 4 percentage points on Nov. 7, according to a Washington Post-ABC News Tracking Poll. It was neck and neck by Nov. 8. The country closely watched the visual map of the country and pondered which states would completely change colors. The day before the elections was nerve-racking. Candidates rushed to win over swing states, and people stopped to think about who they wanted to run this country. Election Day itself was more hectic, as people rushed to the voting booths and the candidates bit their nails, wondering if they would be the new leader of America.The race was long and no one knew where it would lead us. Whenever we thought we had a clear choice, the chimes would go off and it would go back and forth between the votes. The outcome was Donald Trump with 290 electoral votes and Hillary Clinton with 232. Our new president-elect gave his victory speech, asking for America to come together and become one, to hold the unity that our country represents. The public’s reaction was mixed, as some dissapointed voters protested the outcome. While others cheered for our new leader. Is this the choice that we Americans really wanted though? A few students from GCC were Aida Guadarrama/Freelance asked “How do you feel about the outcome of this President-elect, Donald Trump is victorious over Hillary Clinton, Nov. 7. election?”,Zachary Taylor, age 21, responded. “I am disappointed and dissatisfied with the majority of them.” disappointed, I felt like our vote did not really count.” Another student, Jesus Barrio, age 20, replied, “I was The students were then asked how they think Donald

we are wondering what he will do next. -Angelica Sosa Trump will do in his new leadership role? Taylor said “I cannot say what is to come in the future. I will say, that this election signifies the end of what was left of the Republican party. We cannot do anything about it, except prepare for the worst, and hope things don’t get out of hand,” Barrio said “It is laughable, like a bad joke when you hear the title.” The people were left in awe as we are the ones who elected him. It all seems too sudden. Donald Trump is our President-elect and we are wondering what he will do next. The country will stick by him through thick and thin. Trump says he wants us to be united, and that the country should come together instead of divided. The doubled ended sword named Donald Trump is the United States of America’s President.

Hillary Clinton faces a surprising defeat in close race Angelica Sosa Reporter

The VOICE

There is one day that we are all divided. A day we are red, blue, purple, or gold. That day is Election Day. The day when every American stops what they need to do and for maybe an hour or more wait to vote in a booth. After the vote is cast, the country waits, to find out what color each state will be. It is like a guessing game, sometimes the results surprise us. Sometimes they are expected but, it all depends on the votes. This year our country was painted red, meaning the Republican candidate won the election. That also means that there are three losing candidates. That canidate is Hillary Clinton, the Democratic nominee. With her head held high, Hillary congratulated Donald Trump.

Though the race was close, Clinton was expected to win the start of Election Day. But things changed drastically. The country watched as the bells chimed, each giving the latest report on what state went to which candidate. Many gasped, some cried in the stands of Clinton’s room; it seemed that in the end, it was all for nothing. With Clinton giving a speech about how she lost, she felt the disappointment. Regardless she admitted defeat, but did not let it stand in her way. Clinton said in her concession speech on Nov. 9, “This is not the outcome we wanted or we worked so hard for” but that we “owe him (Trump) an open mind and the chance to lead”in her speech. In response to the elections, some Clinton supporters protested in some states like Oregon and New Jersey.

Protestors took to the streets, stopping traffic and objecting that they did not want Donald Trump as their president. It may not be what they want but this is the outcome. Clinton accepts it and hopes for the best. On Election Day there is always going to be a winner, but there will always be a loser as well. No matter who is in charge there will always be a mix of emotions. We cannot get what we want all the time. Some accept it, others lash out. But Hillary Clinton has set an example to follow, keeping her head high as she faced a candidate who said outrageous things to the country, and the country rewarded him for it. Clinton was defeated, but it will not stop her from working for this country.

Jordan Nelson/Freelance President-nominee Hillary Clinton, Nov. 8.

LIFESTYLES Ceramics Club feeds hungry through The Empty Bowls event thevoice.gccaz.edu

Wednesday, Nov. 16, 2016

Michael Arbizo Reporter

The VOICE

The holiday season is all about helping those in need so they can enjoy basic necessities others take for granted. The Glendale Community Ceramics Department/Club and the office of Student Life & Leadership are doing exactly that by co-sponsoring an event called The Empty Bowl. The purpose of this event is to raise funds for the Rio Vista Center, a local non-profit organization which provides services for the community, particularly feeding the homeless. During the holidays they also provide food boxes and turkeys for families who can afford them. The students of Esmeralda DeLaney’s ceramics classes and Ceramics Club start out with 1,000 pounds of clay and create the one-of-a kind bowls from September until early November. The dishwasher safe bowls are then sold at The Empty Bowl event which takes

place on campus, Nov. 16 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Breezeway, located in front of the Student Union. Ceramic bowls purchased for $10 come with a small cup of soup which is provided by the cafeteria. As explained by Professor DeLaney “This small bowl of soup, bread, and water is supposed to represent a 500 calories meal, which is what people in third world countries have to live on daily.” She said. The Empty Bowl is an event sponsored by various MCCCD colleges such as Phoenix College, Mesa Community College, and Sc. This event is so widespread within MCCCD colleges because it is a great way for students to give back to the community. “It’s a good way of helping people who are less fortunate. We are lucky to even be going to school…How many people would love to do that? They don’t even have a house,” Professor DeLaney said. For more information on volunteering or donating to the Rio Vista Center, located at 16 Street and Southern Road,

Students support local events at First Friday Genevieve Copeland Freelance The VOICE

Every month, thousands of people from across the valley take to the streets of downtown Phoenix to enjoy live music, a variety of food, and an eclectic collection of local artwork. This is the product of a citywide tradition of First Friday, where the goal is to bring awareness to a purpose such as art and culture. However, the celebration does not stop there. As the community continues to expand outwards and finally establishing its own roots, art appreciation is slowly making its way into the West Valley. To avoid the long commute and insane traffic, First Friday participants can head out and support Estrella Mountain Community College’s very own DancEstrella. DancEstrella is a performing dance company that hosts four local shows every semester. “What makes us different from the other colleges is that the majority of the dances are created by the students,”

said Janaea Lyn McAlee, the artistic director of DancEstrella. “Every student gets to choreograph and perform their collaborative pieces.” The actual dances are conceptualized by what the student is inspired by, whether it would be quotes, ideas, or life events. Dance styles can range from modern to hip hop to ballet, but are remotely defined through the performer’s individual movement of style. McAlee has been diligently working with 21 dancers since September in preparation for the event’s theme of Hidden in Plain Sight. For dance major, Antonette Fleming, this would be her third show and is already familiar with the grueling process of working behind the scenes. “We’d practice once a week during regular class days going over the dances for the event, but as we near the actual event, we have rehearsals for three nights a week,” she said. Fleming is also performing in four dance pieces, which includes debuting her own choreography labeled

“Surroundings.” The dance troupe dedicates at least two and a half hours in the studio to ensure that they are wholly prepared for opening night. Inside the dance studio of the school’s new Performing Arts Center, first time performer, Esmeralda Castro, is wrapping up her rehearsal for the day. Donned in her usual uniform consisting of tights, ballet slippers, a leotard, and a ballet bun, her anticipation is evident as she proudly looks at the event’s schedule. “So far, it is an amazing opportunity for me as this is my first semester participating; I feel that I can grow as a performer and as a dancer,” Castro said. “I’m practically getting hands on experience with choreographing, and I can’t wait to display the creations on stage.” The ultimate goal for McAlee is to maintain an inclusive and supportive group of dancers and sharing their passion with the community. She wants to introduce and curate a wider interest for dance to the West Valley.

What the audience can expect is a show that is produced in the same manner as they would see in a professional company. There will be 13 pieces that are made up of solos, duets, and group performances. In collaboration with resident composer, David Anderson, there will be a live music accompaniment. It will be an hour’s worth of creative entertainment that will engage with a magnitude of emotions. “The audience will be taken on a journey exploring different ideas of what it means to be hidden in plain sight. The goal is for the audience to have a really moving experience and to be thought provoking. I really want it to touch them,” McAlee stated. The show titled “Hidden in Plain Sight” will run for two days from Friday, December 2 to Saturday, December 3. Show times are at 3 and 7 p.m. on both days. The event is free and open to the general public at the EMCC Performing Arts Center, 3000 N. Dysart Road, Avondale, Arizona.

GCC community celebrates contribution of veterans Michael Arbizo Reporter

The VOICE

In a time of great political divide one common thread many Americans agree on is the need to appreciate and celebrate our veterans. Glendale Community College did just that by hosting a veteran’s celebration event commemorating the 75-year anniversary of Pearl Harbor and the birthday of the Marine Corp which celebrated 241 years of service. The event was held on Nov 10 between 10am and 1pm in the center mall on campus. Among the various speakers were Glendale Mayor Jerry Weiers, Silvestre S. Herrera Jr., and Chris Spicer, GCC’s advocate for veteran’s success. Jeff Senour finished the guest speaker portion of the ceremony with a live performance of his song “You won’t be forgotten” which he wrote in tribute for first responders, police officers, and all who serve or have served in the U.S. military. The event also included a ribbon signing activity all in attendance were encouraged to write the name of a loved one, or family member who has served in the military or are currently serving. Those ribbons will be transported to

Pearl Harbor with Chris Spicer and more than 22 other veteran heroes from the state of Arizona to celebrate the 75-year anniversary of Pearl Harbor. Chris Spicer will have the privilege of attending the ceremony in Hawaii with Ray Sanchez, the oldest surviving veteran of Pearl Harbor. “Sanchez will be 105 years old by the time we go in December and this guy still lifts weights every day. He puts some of us to shame!” Spicer said jokingly. Spicer, who is a veteran himself, explained that it is truly an honor to go to Hawaii with other incredible veterans who have sacrificed so much for our country. Spicer is very appreciative of all the support veterans receive from the community and the Glendale Community College family. a Though Veterans Day is celebrated on Nov. 11, gratitude from civilians can be shown every day. This heartfelt event was a reminder to show appreciation for all those who have served to protect the freedoms of this nation.

Aida Guadarrama/Freelance Extra credit opportunities for helping to set up ASTRO Club stargazing event.

A stargazing event is held in the GCC North parking lot every couple of months by the ASTRO club and the Astronomy Department. This event provides food, stars and intelligent converstaion. It is open to the public, and provides many benefits to students at Glendale Community College. The ASTRO Club is mainly involved in this event to answer questions anyone may have at the event and members set up the telescopes and make themselves available to answer questions. Sally Watt, Keith Watt, and Brian Gleim are the three professors who teach in the astronomy department. They hold these events for a couple of different reasons. They like to show their students certain aspects about the sky and the equipment in person. “A lot of the information we go over in class is very technical on how to work these telescopes to see exactly the correct point in the sky, and has helped many of my students understand their notes better” professor Brian Gleim said.

I

realized, though, how cool it is to

see certain things in the sky — GCC student Jenn Butkiewicz These professors also give out extra credit to students who attend these events, helping students who might be falling behind in their grades. Students may even earn volunteer hours for helping set up. Having a family-oriented setting for this event is a way to encourage the community to be involved. The professors bring their kids as well, and allow them to enjoy the event as a whole. “I have been to this event a couple of times. Honestly, I first went to only receive some extra credit for my class. What I realized, though, was how cool it is to see certain things in the sky,” GCC student Jenn Butkiewicz stated.

She also explained how visualizing certain points in the sky helped her understand concepts that she had problems with in her astronomy lecture class. The ASTRO Club tries to give as much notice as one week before the actual event. However, they have had multiple rescheduling problems due to weather. Planning the event is more complicated than it seems. Depending on complications like weather and turbulence in the air, the dates can change. Also, if there is a lunar eclipse or an interesting event happening in the sky, the ASTRO club tries to plan around that as well. “The GCC North campus is not as fond of our events as they should be. It is a lot of work to keep the campus open after hours, and get security to agree. If we had more of a support from the community, we could hold more events,” said GCC professor Sally Watt. All in all, this event should be recognized for the beautiful experience it provides. As well as, the different opportunities it provides for GCC students and their families.

Davonty Craven Freelance The VOICE

The second annual Native American Basketball Classic is set to take place Nov. 17_Nov. 19. The tournament showcases some of the best junior college competition from across the United States. The NABC is hosted each year by Tohono O’odham Community College in conjunction with another junior college. Last year, the Glendale Community College Gauchos, previously ranked No. 1, co-hosted the tournament at GCC. This year it will be co-hosted by, and held at, Pima Community College. Contenders in the men’s games this year include the NJCAA Division 1 National Champion Salt Lake Community College, No. 13 Midland College, New Mexico Junior College, Pima Community College, Pascua Yaqui, GCC and TOCC. The women’s basketball contenders in the tournament are NJCAA Division 1 national tournament team Gillette College, NJCAA Division 2 semifinalist

Pima Community College, Division 2 runner-up Illinois Central, Elite 1 Academy, GCC and TOCC. The event is not just a basketball tournament but a chance for people to break through the barriers between the two cultures along, some organizers have said. “The efforts are to provide the best possible experience to the college participating and the Native student athletes and for those who are in attendance we plan to blow their mind not only with the athletic abilities of the athletes but with the ripe fruits that the Native culture can bear,” Native American Classic founder Matthew Vargas said. The overall goal of the Native American classic is to remove the social barrier and give different people the opportunity to gain new relationships and get a deeper view of the Native American culture. Culture is the make-up of the community, but people only know what they see so as we take that into account we try to be that transition to learning about something new. In addition to great basketball, the Native American
