Opinion: Science humanizes us

Henri Robbins | Staff Writer Opportunity is a word that means a lot: It’s what pushes human ingenuity, it’s what makes us take risks, it’s why we have such a desire to create, but also, it’s a little robot on Mars. One that ran for fifteen years straight when it was only meant to last 90 days. One that contributed […]

Opinion: We Deserve Five Stars

Henri Robbins | Staff Writer The presidency is pretty funny right now. And actually do I mean laugh-out-loud funny. Ha-ha funny. Now I’m not referencing the wall or anything. It’s not about the subsequent government shutdown. This won’t bash the now all-too-normal Twitter rants of the most powerful man in the United States. This is about the food. For those […]

Staff Editorial: Viral does not mean viable

Two weeks ago, Covington Catholic student Nick Sandmann laughed in the face of a helpless Native American man simply trying to sing his indigenous prayer. Or at least that’s what the video showed. Sandmann was captured on video, Make America Great Again (MAGA) hat on head, standing in front of 64-year-old Nathan Phillips, seemingly blocking him from walking by. He […]

Album review: Neon Future III

Ryan D’Souza | Visual Design Editor Steve Aoki’s “Neon Future II” is a cross-genre experience featuring the likes of K-pop supergroup “BTS”, eco legends “blink-182”, and TV personality “Bill Nye.” Similar to the other two “Neon Future” installations, Neon Future III Plays more like a playlist curated by Aoki than an actual album. Jumping from mumble rap to folk, you’re […]

Review: ‘bumblebee’ more than meets the eye

Jake Sapp | Staff Writer Score: 83% For any fan of the classic Transformers series, Bumblebee is an absolute joy to watch, and a heartwarmingly personal tale of a young girl and her giant robot for anyone else. Similar to the 1999 film, The Iron Giant, Bumblebee brings many elements to the table that fans and audiences alike won’t expect […]

Review: a not so killer queen

Jake Sapp | Staff Writer Score: 73% ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ is a high energy biopic that wants to explore every single aspect of Queen without truly sinking its teeth into anything substantial. The film glazes over events with little sense for pacing and provides an ambitious glimpse into the life of the famed Freddie Mercury, but rarely sticks to any one […]

Review: ‘aquaman’ entertaining but lacking depth

Jake Sapp | Staff Writer Score: 67% Despite the negative reputation the DC Cinematic Universe has built for itself over the years, James Wan’s Aquaman proves itself to be a fun (yet flawed) globe-trotting adventure. The film utilizes its whopping $200 million budget incredibly well, consistently displaying awe-inspiring landscapes and underwater havens throughout its runtime. However, despite its spectacle, the […]

Group projects are toxic

Luke Hutchinson | Editor-in-Chief My time as a student has taught me a lot.  I’m not just talking about random facts about the American Revolution or how to use the Pythagorean Theorem, I’m talking about how to filter out things that don’t matter: homework that isn’t graded, tardies, mean Instagram comments, etc. You see, the educational system tends to exaggerate […]

PETA does nothing but start controversy

Henri Robbins | Staff Writer PETA. We’ve all heard of them, the “People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals”, and yet again they’re making their rounds around social media. This time, it’s because of a tweet that offers alternatives to “anti-animal language”, including phrases such as “taking the bull by the horns”, “beating a dead horse”, and “killing two birds […]

Let’s get over self-deprecation

Lily Geiser | Staff Writer It’s no secret that I hate self-deprecation. I do. I really really do. Which is weird, because I’m guilty of it myself. Everybody is, actually. Because it’s so easy, isn’t it? To walk into a test saying “I’m going to fail” — at least then, you won’t seem arrogant. To look at yourself in the […]

Technology empowers our creative sides

Ria Parikh | Staff Writer Recently, I went to a craft show at Lakota West. Contrary to popular belief, it was full. With technology crowding every corner of our lives, a common argument is that we have lost all appreciation for little, more trivial things. It has surfaced almost everywhere; when a technology conversation comes up, it is usually joined by an assertion […]
