Why The ‘V Word’ is So Important

In America, the Constitution’s amendments grant power to the citizens. With the 15th Amendment, black men were able to vote. With the 19th Amendment, women were able to vote. Voting was something that everyone wanted to do, could be involved in. A right that all citizens in the United States had and can use to mold the government in the way that they wish. Of course, just because of the amendments, that didn’t mean these

We’re Anxious Because We Need to Save the World

We’re anxious. Specifically, Generation Z is anxious, according to Time. In total, more than 90% of Generation Z, a cohort from people aged 15 through 21, have anxiety. The cause is social issues.

The World Is Dying And It’s Our Fault

The United Nations released a report last Monday, where the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) stated that there is only 12 years left to maintain the global temperature at 1.5 Celsius. Even half of a degree can mean that the chance of droughts, floods, fires and extreme temperatures can affect the lives of people all over the world.

Nikki Haley’s Resignation is Important- Here’s Why

The announcement of Nikki Haley’s resignation seemed incredibly random. Officials within the White House were caught off-guard when reporters asked about the circumstances of her resignation, because they had no idea she was planning to resign.  In the Oval Office on Tuesday morning, President Trump and Nikki Haley discussed her leave casually and calmly, the two exchanging compliments. President Trump explained that she told him about six months ago that she may want to resign,

ICE can’t seem to be out of the news for very long. An intelligence supervisor for Border Patrol has just been arrested for the murder of four women and the possible attempt of a fifth. Despite having a gun pulled on her and being grabbed, the fifth victim managed to escape the car and notify a state trooper on a suspicious man who allegedly killed one of her friends. Juan David Ortiz befriended all the

Is Juuling an Epidemic Or A Phase?

Movie stars used to smoke cigarettes. On camera, illuminated by a cloud of smoke, celebrities promised that with smoking, one would achieve a charmed life and a popular way to pass time. Movies romanticized nicotine so much that the percentage of high schoolers smoking rose from 20% in 1985 to 25% a decade later.  Yet, after the groundbreaking discovery of the harmful effects of cigarette smoking, the percentage of smokers dropped. The public no longer

Catholics are praying that the wave of sexual assault allegations are coming to an end after another startling allegation made headlines recently. Investigations on sexual abuse ranged from Philadelphia, to overseas where priests in Australia and Latin America were convicted of sexual abuse over the summer.
