A common misconception about extracurriculars is that having extra activities will interfere with the amount of school work you get done. However, I have noticed that the more involved I am with sports or extracurriculars, the better I seem to perform. During this year’s soccer season, I was co...

When you have friends at school or from activities you regularly participate in, it’s not so difficult to maintain a relationship.

In 1767, English chemist Joseph Priestley accidentally infused water with carbon dioxide. Since then, “sparkling water,” now widely considered a delicacy, has been introduced throughout the world. Many water brands have branched off, such as Refreshe, Perrier, LaCroix, and San Pellegrino. My fami...

A question that not many have considered, but may sound familiar: what is the best condiment? People may debate over topics like which is the best fruit? Or maybe, what should be Arizona’s state drink (apparently not lemonade)?

During the 2019 draft, Kyler Murray was first overall pick, and was drafted to the Arizona Cardinals. Following this pick, former Arizona quarterback Josh Rosen was traded to the Miami Dolphins.

The US adaption of “The Office” has become an American classic with its incomparable mockumentary genre of comedy and incredible cast able to take on the awkward satire of the script.

Sporks are the most useless and uncomfortable utensil. The fork aspect of the utensil interferes with eating “spoon foods,” and the absolute uselessness of the fork portion is laughable. Neither the spoon nor the fork is as effective as just using a spoon or a fork for eating meals. The inventor of ...

The Journalism class has gathered to settle a lasting debate of which fruit deserves the title of superiority. This is an opinion-based article with the personal input of many of our students. To us, each opinion depends much on what you would define as the best. Some may say that best would be def...
