     Imagine you’re walking around the mall and come across phone chargers. You think, “Ugh, I do need another one. Mine just broke.” So you pay another $20 and think, “There has to be a better way.”

    If you had your own way of producing a solution to your problem at your home or business, you’d save a lot of time and money. You wouldn’t need to buy a new part; you’d create one all on your own.

     3D printing is your solution. It is the process of making three dimensional, solid objects from a digital state by melting and extruding materials.

     Giuseppe Musso sits at the head of a long table, his hands folded in front of himself.

     His blue eyes light up through his glasses as he reminisces about his homeland of Sicily. “I miss my island, the weather and looking out over the Mediterranean,” Musso says.

     As quickly as his eyes light up, he shoots out of his seat to greet and seat a small group of people coming in the door of his restaurant, Trattoria Giuseppe, located in Newtown Square.

Patriots’ Super Bowl victory comes amidst controversy

By Chris Linvill

 

     The New England Patriots are the 2014 NFL Champions. Let’s stop trying to downplay it.

     They beat the defending champions, which ended up being one of the better Super Bowl games to watch in a few years. The Seattle Seahawks may have made a bad call that ended the game and lost it for themselves but the Patriots still won nonetheless.

     Critics are saying that the Patriots are cheaters and they shouldn’t have been in the Super Bowl due to the deflated football issue, known as Deflategate, in the AFC Championship game.

     To help Americans upgrade their skills, President Barack Obama proposed a bold new plan to lower the cost of community college to zero during his State of the Union speech Jan. 9, 2015.

     “Americans thrived in the 20th century because we made high school free,” Obama said. “But in a 21st century that rewards knowledge like never before, we need to do more.”

     According to Obama’s plan, to be eligible for free community college, students must attend classes at least half time and maintain a grade point average of 2.5 of better.

      As many have pointed out, President Barrack Obama’s proposal to make community colleges tuition free is something that is already happening. As many as 60 percent of community college students are able to qualify for Pell grants, which in most cases takes care of the costs of tuition and fees.

     However, it is good to see that the president’s goal has already brought new attention to the importance of community colleges for people who want to gain skills for jobs and knowledge for better lives.

     A big question is how community

By Zach Colona

    Tara Holmes, a 20-year old paralegal studies major from Wallingford, commutes to and from school like many other college students.

    This time last year Holmes was headed to school when she noticed she needed gas. She pulled her mother’s Nissan Quest into a Wawa in Brookhaven. As she started to pump she watched the price jump once again to $3.28 a gallon.

    She asked herself, “Why is gas so expensive?”

    She headed to the Learning Commons at DCCC’s Marple campus and did some research. Like Holmes, many people don't know why gas prices go up and down.
