Shame on Sportscenter

Every morning since I was 8 years old, I have watched ESPN’s “Sportscenter.” It’s a routine that I and many other sports fans do to stay updated with the sports world and get information on the latest news and scores from the previous night. Recently, on February 8, Sportscenter as I know and love took a turn for the worse. ESPN added an additional two live hours to our beloved channel. It’s a “fun” new show called Sportscenter AM and...

Think Green

When Earth Day is just around the corner, people begin to wonder whether small changes in their lifestyle could actually make a difference. Some are skeptical of their ability to have an impact on the environment, while others are determined that they can do something. People should incorporate small changes into their lives because what seems like an insignificant detail to one person could positively impact the environment. Over one million tons of aluminum cans end up in worldwide landfills...

Cleveland Chaos

Donald Trump was not a serious candidate, until he was. The Republican nominee was supposed to be decided by Iowa, except it wasn’t. South Carolina was another make a break point for the candidates, then it wasn’t. The end of the competition was supposed to come with a win for Donald Trump in Ohio, until he lost. If there is one thing that political commentators and experts are absolutely sure of this election cycle, it is that they can be...

Refugee Roulette

In lieu of the recent terror attacks against Paris, the United States is planning the appropriate legislative response: admitting 100,000 unregistered refugees over the next two years. Just a quick review, over 800,000 refugees from Syria have fled to warring nation into Europe. At least one of those was a member of the Paris attack that resulted in 129 casualties and 352 injuries, the largest attack on France since World War II. This proven by his Syrian passport, authorities in...

Senior Advice

Is it just me or does it feel like every year it takes forever for summer to start, but then feels like it lasts about two weeks? But to wrap up another incredible summer vacation, here we are, starting yet another school year. The time has come for backpacks to be dusted off, math skills brushed up and prayers hoping you remember how to hold a pencil. While we sit in our desks and reminisce the days spent enjoying the...

Net Neutrality

With elections coming up soon many controversial ideas will be brought into question by the candidates running. One issue that might not be brought to light, but should be is net neutrality. Net neutrality is a conflict between the consumer and the corporations. Corporations feel that since they provide a service to consumers, they should be able to decide what they provide, much like a cable company. If you want to be able to access Netflix, it will cost you...

Stress Savvy 0

Stress Savvy

  Without trying, we stress out our parents, teachers and peers because we may not always see eye to eye with them. While we see a free moment to spend time with friends, they see an opportunity for us to be improving our abilities and becoming as successful as we can. However, we need the downtime. It’s kind of like our own escape from the expectations of society, school and parents. Kicking back with friends without a care, even if...

Iran Nuclear Steal 0

Iran Nuclear Steal

“Death to America! Death to Israel!” Those were the chants that rang through the streets of Iran as the United States made major concessions with regard to our nuclear policy towards the country. A policy that has kept Iran from acquiring nuclear and ballistic missiles for over a decade. Instead of continuing the successful policy until Iran makes some common sense concessions, like perhaps freeing the three American journalists currently imprisoned by the country, the United States has done exactly...
