Augmented reality is the next technological breakthrough

Augmented reality is the next technological breakthrough

April 24, 2017

  Throughout our lives, we have witnessed first hand the constant evolution of technology. Whether it be for entertainment, sustenance, or passion, we have an extreme craving for new information, and to push the boundaries using new technology. Way back then, it was a caveman with fire and a wheel. These days, it is new smartphones that can connect to satellites in space, and headsets that put you into a virtual world. In recent years, technology began leaping extreme bounds with all new smartphones, tablets, drones, and robots. So many amazing things have been...

Gender wage gap still has effects

Gender wage gap still has effects

April 24, 2017

  As of the year 2015, women are only paid 80 cents for every dollar a man makes. According to aauw.org, women typically earn 90 percent of what men are paid until they hit the age of 35. After they pass that age, the percent slowly starts to drop. By the age 55, the percent decreases to the lowest of 74. Some people may not agree, but age is not just a number. It gets even worse for women of color. Hispanic, African American, Native Hawaiian, and other native women have lower median annual earnings compared with non-Hispanic and Asian American women. Also according...

Do people complain too much?

Do people complain too much?

April 21, 2017

    Am I complaining that people complain too much?   We, as a society, have become a whole bunch of complainers, especially teenagers. Every day in the halls of RHS I hear complaints about how tired someone is, how annoying somebody else is, how boring this one teacher is, it’s never ending. Now, I am not saying I don’t complain, those who know me, know that I complain with the best of them (or worst, whichever way you view it). There is some kind of satisfaction that comes with complaining, even more satisfaction when another person agrees...

Tips to help you study for final exams

March 6, 2017

          The third trimester is here. Students can be stressed out and worried about studying and passing the huge tests. Here are  a few tips on how to make final exam pressure a little easier. Organize your work: Having tons of study reviews everywhere or having tons of  papers from other classes mixed up together can make you very stressed out. Organize your work and start with your hardest class, then move to your easiest. When you are done with all of them, study the class you struggle with the most before you go to bed and when you wake up. Hig...

The New Year is quickly nearing, and the holiday season is already in full effect. Some people have already started reevaluating their life decisions. Well, now is the time to sit and make a list of notable resolutions that are easy to stick to. “The biggest new year resolution for 2017 is to procrastinate less and be more productive with my time,” senior Jada Simmons said. A New Year’s resolution is a tradition, in which a person makes a promise to do an act of self improvement  or something slightly nice, such as opening doors for people beginning after the new year. Resolutions can be hard to stick to, but having a partner may keep you consistent with the improvement(s) you want to make. When people think about the new year, they think of a fresh start, and how they can...

I stopped three of my peers in the hallway and asked about their personal views of the recent presidential election. Q: Who do you think should’ve won the election and why? A: Personally I think Hillary Clinton should’ve won, but since the odds weren’t in her favor I can only respect the overall vote results, and hope he does great things for our country. -senior Martise Zorn Q: What is your reaction to the results from the election? A: I don’t care for politics, but I’m not as frantic as everyone else because the President doesn’t have as much power as people think he does, he mainly has checks and balances. -junior Brennan Coles Q: How do you feel about America’s newest president-elect? A: I feel like the President-elect Donald Trump isn’t the best person t...

Actions speak louder than words

Actions speak louder than words

January 4, 2016

When you think about the world nowadays, there are a lot of things that help people out and make everyone happy. But when you think about the world’s people there are not many that would come to mind. No one is good at being nice anymore and not a lot of people have the right mindset to do good things and treat people equally. Social experiments are used more and more, with channels on Youtube dedicated just for them. They give you an insight of how random people everywhere treat others and we can witness it. After the attack on Paris, a social experiment was performed...

Finding the balance

Finding the balance

November 20, 2015

Four years of high school can be a chaotic experience for a lot of students. There are tests to study for, homework to finish, and, along with this, many students want to be involved by joining sports or clubs. At RHS, there is a large variety of clubs and sports that the students can join, but these clubs and sports require a lot out of their members, which could lead to a lot of stress for these students, since they have to worry about their school work as well. There are some students who have been able to try different ways of balancing sports, clubs, and school...

Dust off your notebooks, typewriters and keyboards all you prospective writers, because National Writing Month is in full swing. National Writing Month (or NaNoWriMo ) is a chance for authors both young and old from around the world to challenge and showcase their craft for prizes and publicity. Founded by Chris Baty in 1999, the goal of NaNoWriMo is to write a novel of at least 50,000 words by Nov 30. Why such an arbitrary number? Because it has been proven that while 50,000 is an intimidating number, it is not by any means an impossible goal, for those who are passionate...

All holidays come with an opportunity to get creative with decorations and food choices, but Thanksgiving can be particularly exciting because it typically includes a traditional meal with foods that we all know and love. Some families choose to put a clever twist on their dessert and create cupcakes that actually look like the Thanksgiving meal. Believe it or not, it is fairly easy to decorate cupcakes individually to look like mashed potatoes, pies, cooked vegetables, and even stuffed turkeys. Why not post pictures of adorable cupcake creations on Twitter? Mashed...

My name is Fatimah Odeh, and I am a 17 year old senior here at RHS. I was born and raised in Brooklyn, New York, and moved to Michigan my sophomore year of high school. New York is diverse and full of different people. Throughout my entire school career, I have been on various teams: basketball, soccer, volleyball, and track. I have competed in spoken word poetry, and karate tournaments. Moving to Roseville has been an interesting experience. I was very excited to attend this high school, even though I quickly learned that there weren’t many other students that were like...

As Halloween approaches, the debate rages about whether the oldies remain the best or whether their newer counterparts have surpassed them. Many students here at RHS voiced their opinions about their favorite horror movies. It seems that support is split down the middle. The most important thing this horror movie season is finding the best one that sends chills down your spine and makes your heart race....
