Falcons’ Friday Soccer Results: Women Win, Men Tie
Hoping to get their second conference win of the season, the FLC men’s soccer team battled Napa Valley to 0-0 tie in last Friday’s Bay Valley Conference (BVC) match at Falcon Stadium. Both teams had numerous chances to score, but neither one could penetrate the goal. The Falcons’ best opportunity came 20 minutes in, when a Napa Valley foul in the goal area resulted in a Folsom Lake penalty kick. Napa’s goalkeeper made a spectacular save of Gus Chima’s PK to keep the score at zeroes. Not long after, Napa had their own chance with a penalty kick, but the shot hit the post before Falcon goalie Patrick McDade corralled the rebound. The second half again saw both teams with scoring opportunities, but neither could convert. “We didn’t play our best,” noted Falcon coach Justin Johnson, “but at least we didn’t allow them to score. It was nice having Drew (Russell) back; we had certainly missed his presence.” Russell, a forward, had missed several games due to injury. The Falcons (3-10-1 and 1-3-1 in BVC) will now prepare for Tuesday’s match at Contra Costa, currently in second place in the BVC.

“Tonight, I give you the truth. And the truth is this: The American Dream has failed you.”
Yes, dark words for even darker times. Frank Underwood, for three seasons now, has captivated the imagination of millions of viewers on the hit Netflix original House of Cards with an entertaining yet clearly over-dramatized representation of American politics. While we should be fortunate that shaky ethical figures to his extent are for the most part only works of fiction, the underlying realities that are intended to only be symbolic bring up a startling and saddening truth; the stagnant state of our political and economic environment has pushed television and film to become the outlets of the voice of reason.

For as long as people have been on this planet they have looked up at the sky and wondered what was up there. In the last hundred years, humanity has made leaps and bounds in our knowledge of space, and one of the greatest discoveries we’ve made has been the strange, alien planets from beyond our solar system. Everyone knows about the planets that circle our sun, (and Pluto), but there are some that defy logic.
One of the most well known of these planets is the diamond planet, 55 Cancri e. As its nickname suggests, a significant portion of the planet, (roughly one third), is made of solid diamond. Found by scientists in 2011, Cancri e owes its strange composition to a high amount of carbon on the surface as well as incredibly strong gravity. Don’t get too excited though, as the planet is not only forty light-years away, but the surplus of diamonds, if we were able to mine it, would crash the diamond market like a car hitting a brick wall.

In one week you can join Marty McFly and Doc as the two go “where they don’t need roads.” In selective theaters, on October 21, the three movies are being played back-to-back-to-back. The triple feature will pay homage to the 30th anniversary of the movie, which happens to take place on the date dubbed as “Back to the Future Day”: Marty’s return from the future on October 21, 2015 at 4:29 PM.
Back to the Future was created by Robert Zemeckis in 1985. The story debuted its second and third parts nearly five years later, Back to the Future II in 1989 and Back to the Future III in 1990. The basic premise of the trilogy is teenager Marty McFly, portrayed by Michael J. Fox, and his friend Dr. Emmett Brown, played by Christopher Lloyd, time-travel through various eras to try and save McFly’s existence. “Marty McFly's having the time of his life. The only question is -- what time is it?” (imbd.com)

“Thank you to Hillary Clinton and my dead pets.”
The 41st season premiere of Saturday Night Live debuted on October 03, 2015 with Miley Cyrus as the host and musical guest. The season advances with its returning cast from season 40, plus the addition of a new featured member, Jon Rudnitsky.
This surprisingly solid episode ranged from a special cameo by democratic candidate, Hillary Clinton to a casual commemoration of this past summer; the folks who made 2015 memorable danced off into the horizon. Overall, the sketches were a political extravaganza with Taylor Swift parodies thrown into the mix. The Weekend Update segment had a strong return with Colin Jost and Michael Che continuing their positions as co-anchors. Jokes varied from the Pope’s visit to the United States, to relationship advice about the benefits of one-night stands.
Prepare to laugh-out-loud all over again next week as rookie, Amy Schumer takes the stage on October 10. Following the first-time host, the stakes will be high as Tracy Morgan returns to make his recovery debut on October 17.

Bay Valley Conference leader Yuba College showed why the 49ers are in first place with a 3-0 victory over the Folsom Lake men yesterday in Marysville. The Falcons gave up an early goal, then tightened up their defense for the remainder of the first half to trail at the break, 1-0. However, the 49ers came out with two quick goals in the first five minutes of the second half to effectively put the game away. The loss drops the Falcons to 1-3 in BVC play and 3-10 overall. They’ll host Napa Valley, currently in third place in the BVC with a 2-1-1 record, this Friday at Falcon Stadium at 4:00 pm.
On Thursday October 08, 2015 the police say an A student alerted a staff member that an individual had allegedly made a verbal threat against the main ARC campus, with the intention of carrying out the threat on the next day, Friday, October 9. This information was brought to the attention of the Los Rios Police, who believed that the threat was credible. Los Rios Police then notified the Sacramento Sheriff’s Department for assistance.
The police have arrested the culprit in question at his place of employment around 6:00 PM on Thursday. He was charged for malicious threats resulting in death. He was booked into the Sacramento County Jail, and is currently being held on $250,000 bail. He is set to be arraigned on his charges on Tuesday, October 13.
With this going on, and college shootings, etc. makes me feel like we should bring awareness to the issue and put a stop to bullying.
