Lady Bird (2017)  Greta Gerwig’s solo directorial debut is a phenomenal coming of age story about a vibrant, strong-willed girl as she goes through her first love, first heartbreak, and truths behind what it means to be popular all wrapped up in an hour and 35 minute emotional cyclone. Set in Sacramento, CA, Christine “Lady Bird” McPherson (Saoirse Ronan) is a high school senior with dreams about going to a college in “a city with culture” and ultimately leaving her hometown despite...

Oscar season has come to an end, following the freshly announced contenders for the glamorous annual award show, and with it comes the now expected internet outrage over what movies do or do not deserve the acclaim. This typical conflict over competing cinema is a harmless and welcomed aspect of award shows. However for many, this year’s contenders seem to speak at an inner bias and prevalent sexism as women and people of color are shunned from several key categories.    The most...

Someone who is not privy to the situation would think the photos were a depiction of hell. With orange haze all around and tremendous flames seemingly devouring any life in sight, the once lush and vivacious countryside now scorned to a landscape of desolation and ash. The photos and videos that have circulated on social media illuminate the grave situation Australia faces as over a million acres are engulfed in a historic megafire. Alongside pictures of torched wildlife, the knowledge of the...

Since 2000, the U.S. drug overdose death rate has gone from 6.2 per 100,000 people in the year 2000, to 14.7 per 100,000 in 2014. According to the National Survey on Drug Use and Health (NSDUH), 19.7 million Americans (aged 12 and older) battled a substance use disorder in 2017. But what about those who have recovered? Here, I have interviewed someone who went down the ‘drug road’ and turned their...

  On November 13th, 2019, Lonestar High School was under close watch in the hours of 9am-10am. Students reported a student had been showing off what appeared to be his gun on the bus on the way to school. About 2,000 students were put into a mandatory lockdown and lockout drill until further notice, and around 15 police cars could be seen surveying the perimeter of the school. The surrounding schools- Stafford Middle School, and Phillips Elementary School- also followed...

Nerves, terribly awkward ice-breaker games, lack-luster lectures and questions of my place of origin- these are the reliable aspects that I know will occur every time at the beginning of a school year. While the first aforementioned three aspects are common themes of every student’s experiences, most American teens don’t have to face the last one, the frequent ask of “Are you British?” However, if you have a speech impediment such as I do, probing questions are just...

Black and gold, brave and bold, go fight win!    This is the chant that represents the Warriors here at Memorial. Outsiders observing would assume that Memorial High School is filled with confidence regarding our ability to take down the competition and to support any mountain our fellow Warriors have to climb. In reality, the students here would say that the atmosphere is all around ineffective at creating any sort of palpable excitement circulating around football...

Nobody is surprised to find that the Earth is in a highly critical condition at the moment. Global warming, air pollution, and waste disposal are major environmental concerns that we need to keep an eye on. Different countries have already implemented environmentally friendly laws to try to save the planet in this time of crisis. “What can I do to help?” you may ask. You can start with these five small but highly impactful changes.  1. Use a reusable shopping bag. A research...
