Recent violent incidents around Union City prompted New Haven Schools Superintendent Pat Jaurequi to send a letter home to parents Thursday advising them to keep close tabs on their students.
"As you may have read in the newspaper or heard from friends or neighbors, there was a fatal shooting in our community during the week before Thanksgiving break and there have been two shooting incidents in the community since school resumed," Jaurequi wrote.
One of the shootings involved a female African-American student from New Haven's Conley-Carabello High School in South Hayward.

Discussion of drunkeness and sexual behavior at the Homecoming Dance and what to do about it dominated the first Student Senate meeting of the year Thursday.
Sexual activity at the dance was so widespread that the Pavilion in which the dance was held smelled of sexual activity, Associated Student Body President Kirsten Joyce Ignacio told the assembled senators during the second period meeting, using a slang term for the female genitive organ. Ignacio added that she believed most dance goers got drunk before attending.

is a cute little film for all ages.
Even though it may seem corny at times, it is sure to put a smile on your face. In many movies people are sent to fantasylands, but it much rarer for the fantasy characters to venture out to reality.
The cast of the movie actually first appears as animated figures. In fact, the whole opening sequence is in classic hand-drawn animation, with an archetypal Disney princess, Princess Giselle this time, summoning all the woodland creatures to help her with her chores and tasks throughout the day. Finding her “Prince Charming” absorbs the Princess' day.

, now in theaters, has great computer-generated action scenes, yet it isn’t the groundbreaking movie the hype machine made it up to be.
According to that hype, director Robert Zemeckis, the creator of the animated Christmas feature, "The Polar Express," (a movie that actually made the children that were supposed to be sweet and innocent look creepy), Beowulf
would far surpass “Polar Express” in awesome entertainment.

(December 7, 1823 – December 29, 1891) was a German mathematician and logician who argued that arithmetic and analysis must be founded on "whole numbers", saying, "God made the integers; all else is the work of man" (Bell 1986, p. 477). This put Kronecker in bitter opposition to some of the mathematical extensions of Georg Cantor, Kronecker's student (cf. Davis (2000), pp. 59ff). Kronecker was a student and lifelong friend of Ernst Kummer.
