Martin Scorsese’s new film, The Wolf of Wall Street, has all the ingredients for blockbuster success: Money, power, women, and drugs. It is a comedic take on 90’s stock broking bad boys filled with IPO’s, money laundering and Wall Street’s paroxysm of corporate greed.
Jordan Belfort (Leonardo DiCaprio) starts his career penniless after losing his job at a brokerage firm, following the market crash of 1987. He forms Stratton Oakmont and begins swindling his clients for penny stock and is able to create a thriving firm bent on moving the client’s cash into his own pocket.
Scorsese presents a film filled with exuberance fueled by Quaaludes and exorbitant spending.
This film, filled with sleazy behavior wrapped in orgies, yachts, and unquenchable greed, The Wolf of Wall Street will leave audiences reeling at the unmitigated corruption of Wall Street’s Belfort.
If you had a million dollars, how would you spend it?
The movie is set to release Christmas Day (December 25, 2013 ) to American audiences.
Multiculturalism, the preservation of different cultures/cultural identities within a society as state or nation, is a concept that was implemented into the CSU Channel Islands campus since its founding in 2002.
Since then, between the years 2002 and 2013, the campus has become the birthplace of nine major clubs dedicated to the concept of identity and pride in one’s own heritage.
The 10th anniversary of the Welcome Back Luau finds great success in celebrating a new year at CI.

“E Komo mai, e noho mai, e ài a e, wala àu” is Hawaiian for, “Come in, sit down, eat, and talk.”
For the past 10 years, the Welcome Back Luau has been a CI tradition encouraging students old and new to do just that. Placed early in the school year to foster the growth of the CI community, this year’s event, spearheaded by Chelsea Vinas and Jamie Elmer of the Student Programming Board, seems to have excelled in this goal with quite a turnout.
College and Sex: The two are supposed to go together like Bread and Butter or Johnny Depp and Tim Burton. It’s an expected thing, whether by social convention or a simple reaction catalyzed by the freedom from one’s parents (for those who are lucky enough).
College is depicted as the time to go wild and let loose. Right now, the signs of it can be seen all around campus. Students, male and female alike, are dressed to draw attention to how available and desirable they are, awkward and convoluted conversations are being held before class starts seeking that “friendly” cup of coffee and cell phones are at the ready to receive a barrage of new phone numbers.
On September 11 2013, members of the CSUCI College Republicans club gathered in front of the John Spoor Broome library to honor the memory of those whose lives were lost during the attack on the World Trade Center twelve years ago.
The Civil Rights Movement of the 1950’s and 1960’s was vital in securing liberties and freedom for all Americans, regardless of race, color, sex, sexual orientation, and faith. While the United States have progressed in terms of legalized discrimination, there is still much more room for improvement.
This year marks the 50th anniversary of the March on Washington (1963) where Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. delivered his famous “I Have a Dream” speech to a crowd of thousands at the Lincoln Memorial. In commemoration of this momentous occasion, President Barack Obama, joined by former presidents Jimmy Carter and Bill Clinton with other notable leaders, delivered a heartfelt speech to the world about the progress America has made and must continue to make.
