After what seemed to be an eternity, the hit Netflix series On My Block returned with another season. Season two, released on March 29, was filled with tears, laughter and plot twists that will keep the watcher on their feet for all ten episodes.

The series picks up after the tragedy of the end of season one, with Ruby out of the hospital and well. Unfortunatel...

Adopting a dog from a breeder is better than a shelter When it comes to finding a dog a forever home, many people go to breeders. A breeder is someone who breeds livestock, racehorses, along with other animals and plants. There are many benefits of going to a breeder that are available rather than going to adopt from a shelter. With going to a breeder the option to meet the person and see the living conditions is available. Most people want a certain breed of dog as well, and therefore they go to a breeder who specializes in that breed. By going to a breeder, they say all the health issues the parents have ever had, as well as the issues the puppies may have. A lot more general background information on the parents of the dog is provided as well. When going to a shelter, they likely do...

  So many trends pass by on self help that benefit many in so many ways. Meditation is up for the question this time. What is meditation? According to www.merriam-Webster.com, meditation is to engage in mental exercise (such as concentration on one’s breathing) for the purpose of reaching a heightened level of spiritual awareness. To break it down, meditation is to accept one’s thoughts instead of blocking out letting your mind wander with the help of concentrated breathing.     I have started meditating to give it a try, and here is my personal experience on how it went, and if I recommend it. There is an app called “Headspace” that offers meditation sessions that caters to your needs in life. When I first started meditation, I did not trust it at all. What was the use of it ...

Singer-songwriter Shawn Mendes is a well known world phenomenon, gaining fame in 2013 on the now terminated app vine, posting six second singing videos.

The self-titled album features 14 tracks from the pop star, including the hit single”In My Blood” which was released in early March, along with “Lost in Japan”.

“My My My” starts a new era for Troye Sivan

“My My My” starts a new era for Troye Sivan

In the world of music, Troye Sivan has definitely been flying under the radar. The last we have seen from him was a feature song called “There For You” with Martin Garrix on April 22nd, 2017. His last album was released on Dec. 4, 2015. It seems like Sivan has fallen into the void… until now. Sivan recently has released his brand new single “My My My” on Jan. 10. The music video for this song is mostly in black and white, which reminds me of an 80’s Michael Jackson music video. The song is upbeat, which is a drastic change from his last album, which has sl...

President Donald Trump’s first year in office was not very shocking

February 12, 2018

President Trump’s first year in the office has been a rollercoaster ride for not only just Americans, but other countries as well. When taking the office, President Trump promised to “Make America Great Again,” but has failed to yet do that. He is leading a country that is more divided than ever. Ever since he took the office; he has banned immigrants from 6 Muslim majority countries from entering the U.S, pulled out of the Paris Climate Agreement, caused issues with other countries such as the U.K,- where he asked the Prime Minister, Theresa May, to give him a “warm...

President Donald Trump is trying to take away an act that affects immigrants. The Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA, allows individuals who entered the country illegally as minors to receive a renewable two-year period of deferred action from deportation and to be eligible for a work permit. It helps remove immigration enforcement attention away from individuals with good behavior. The people protected under DACA are called DREAMers. It stands for Development, Relief, and Education for Alien Minors. Trump announced last year, while he was still runnin...

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...
