It can seem that every second, the world grows increasingly more chaotic and unfocused. With headlines run rampant by stories of political corruption, enviornmental crisises and the persistent presence of discrimination in societies, the time put aside to remeber our arguably more messy history is scarce. Every Janurary, though, there comes a day that the world and it’s leaders come together in unified solemness in remeberance of the millions of lives lost in the Holocaust. This year was no...

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...

Barney’s Brunch House is a local brunch restaurant located in McKinney, TX. I have been there countless times and I am always pleasantly surprised by how delightful the food and service is. It took 20-25 minutes to be seated due to the restaurant always being busy. I recently ordered the classic French toast with a side of waffle fries and a glass of iced sweet tea. The French toast was warm and flavorful and was served with whipped butter as well as maple syrup, however,...

But, here at Memorial High school, this luxury is often the subject of debate and questioned before students can all go zip off to a McDonald’s near them. The staff...

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.

  On November 13th, 2019, Lonestar High School was under close watch in the hours of 9am-10am.

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...
