Take a Stand by Sitting Down

By Luke L and Addison A

In August of 2016 Colin Kaepernick did something that surprised America. He stood up by sitting down.  A preseason football game, a song, a flag, a bench, and a man who sat down. 

The first time Kaepernick protested (what he is now so infamous for doing), there was an uproar. People in the crowd were calling him a “coward,”  “someone who should be banned,” “not a true American,” but then Kaepernick explained why he knelt: to show more respect to the flag.

X out X

It’s everywhere, all around, it follows us… the iPhone X. The boom was so big that you couldn’t go anywhere without it following you. It is on billboards, ads, commercials. The list is endless, and, it seems like the way Apple is heading, we could be carrying around iPhone 300,000,000,000 that is as big as a house. People are wanting bigger and bigger phones.

We asked fellow students about their take on it and here are their answers:

What is Trump’s Appeal?

Why did Donald Trump win the 2016 US election?  He hardly looks qualified for it with no history in politics and how he suddenly changed from voting Republican to Democratic multiple times (He was Republican from ‘87 to ‘99, ‘09 to ‘11 and from ‘12 to present, Democratic until 1987 and again during 2001 to 2009, he was independent from 1999 to 2001 and 2011-2012.)  However, since the election is really based on what the people say, the question isn’t why did he win, it is who made him win.

Less Is More

A common problem that America has been facing is obesity. And honestly, I understand why. With a fast food restaurant or corner store at every turn, it is much easier to get a cheeseburger for one dollar and right nearby then a salad at a cafe for 10, where you have to walk a while to get it too. But one thing I’ve noticed in America’s food industry is proportions. And the large amount that they come in too.

South Park: Still Fresh

As many people know, South Park has been on for over 20 years, and with 21 seasons under their belts, it’s odd to think that out of all the cartoons in existence, this is one of the longest running cartoons that hasn’t gotten stale. Why is it that shows like Spongebob or Family Guy get criticized for being repetitive while often having half the number of seasons?

“Real” Fake News

By Ian Kohn and Addison Goldner

Our president, Mr. Donald (Duck) Trump claims that he himself came up with the term “Fake News.” Well, that’s just fake news. In fact, when he was asked why he claimed that, he responded… “Well, all this ‘News’ is based off of me, so I obviously invented fake news.” Trump (*ahem*ahem* Drumph) has also claimed that Taj Mahal casino was built BEFORE the Taj Mahal in India. He says he remembers building the Taj Mahal in India, yet in a picture in the Oval Office, he has a picture of him building the LEGO Taj Mahal.
