Why He Doesn’t Scare Me

Lilly Swanson, Production Manager

Filed under Opinion

Men like Larry Nassar often take away my ability to feel safe amid casual encounters with other males, my ability to feel safe when walking alone, my ability to wear an otherwise socially acceptable length skirt or dress without the worry of it being interpreted as “flirtatious” or “inviting”. In...

The World Needed Black Panther

Habib Bello, Managing Editor

February 18, 2018


Filed under Opinion

Three words. We. Needed. This. By “we”, I don’t mean the kids. By “we”, I also don’t mean the parents. By “we”, I meant the world.     Black Panther is amazingly executed and has the potential to be argued as the best first stand-alone movie for a marvel superhero since Iron Man. This...

The ACT is one of the two most popular forms of standardized testing in the United States. It quizzes students on English, math, reading and science in a five hour testing period, and it is required for most college admissions. However, the test doesn’t strictly show knowledge in a score out of 36....

Television has become less entertainment, more social movement. More call to action. By no means am I complaining, because the current women’s movement gave way to the incredible events of this year’s Grammy awards.   The moment Kesha stepped on stage with a choir of prominent women in the m...

2017 was without a doubt an unprecedentedly crazy year from a rise in natural disasters, to mass shootings, to sexual harassment scandals, to Trump’s nutty politics. To mark the beginning of 2018, President Donald Trump gave a rocky State of the Union speech that failed to unify Democrats and Republic...

Recently, the Bloomfield Hills High School administration together made a decision determining that in the future, high school alumni would have to schedule appointments to visit teachers as opposed to, as it has been in the past, simply coming to visit during the school day.   “We love to have...

  As the infamous winter break comes just around the corner, the common topic of where students are traveling to becomes a regularity.   For a fair amount of people, it is somewhere exotic, and most likely out of the country. But, there are also those people who are going somewhere cool however ...

Filed under Opinion

I never listened to my little brother when he played the violin. He played (and still plays) constantly. Nevertheless, I was always impressed when watching his nimble fingers dance effortlessly across the strings. I would think about my fingers, small and thin like his and yet irrevocably handicap...

Filed under Opinion

When I think about what the American flag stands for, my mind starts racing. There is an endless amount of symbolism surrounding the flag of our nation. However, I believe that the majority of people with this thought will have a very simple answer: freedom. Freedom of religion. Freedom of the press....

Red. White. Blue. When I think of those colors, I think of a nation brought together by believing that they could beat all odds. A melting pot of different cultures and upbringings that live together in harmony. There is no irony in the name “United States of America.” Therefore, we should...

With Christmas and other holidays on the clock, we all have something to look forward to; whether it’s missing school, baking cookies, or getting that highly anticipated visit from Kris Kringle himself. Personally, one of my favorite holiday traditions is my family’s homemade ice rink. For the ...

Among my earliest memories is hopping in my dad’s car on the way to kindergarten and hearing Led Zeppelin’s “Stairway to Heaven”. That’s how I began my day: a different song, each one as capturing as the next. Each morning, I would explore something new. From Floyd to Cream to Sabbath, I was o...
