Stop and think for a minute. Do you think you would be mature enough to be the king of your country on your seventeenth birthday? I know for sure I wouldn't be ready for any such royal duties. Having the…
WMD Weapons of Mass Destruction. Scary words when you hear them. This is not something anyone wants to hear. Weapons of mass destruction by definition means a weapon that can kill large numbers of humans and/or cause great damage to man-made structures. Hopefully none of these weapons will be used against us or anyone else in the world. This was also the reason why we are in the war in Iraq. The U.S. thought that Iraq had weapons of mass destruction, so we…Continue

How often do you think of the war going on in Iraq? The Iraq war may be the most under-publicized war in American history. According to news archives from NBC news, just 80 minutes of coverage relating to the war in Iraq was shown during all of 2009 on their news program. This statistic may also relate to the high disapproval rating (61%, poll taken by CBS news in mid year 2009) of the war amongst American citizens . Also, according to Newsbusters.com, the last time a White House reporter…Continue
For the majority of you, I'm guessing you each have a facebook.Well for me facebook is something I find myself checking a lot. I think i spend the most time on facebook when I have homework that I just don't want to get done. Even if I don't want to be on I somehow always end up on the computer sitting on facebook.Procrastination is never a good thing, and facebook can be the number one cause leading to it.
Why is this such an…Continue

Technology is Everywhere
Technology has basically taken over the world in the past twenty years. When my parents were growing up they didn't use any types of electonics. No cellphones, ipods, tv's, computers, etc. I could not imagaine my life without any of those things. I think we all know how big cellphones and ipods are these days. We see it every day in the hallways and classrooms. Hundreds of kids bring their cellphone and…Continue

Many of you have probably either seen or heard of the show My Life as Liz on MTV which depicts the "true life" of an "indie girl" who just does whatever she so feels and resists the pressure to conform to the man. And I cannot tell you how many times people have come up to me and said "you remind me of that girl from My Life as Liz" or "hey, Liz!" joking around since I knew what they were…Continue
This year Turnabout was great! Elory invited me to go with her. Usually the boy is supposed to ask the girl but I was too shy to ask anyone because I was afraid of getting rejected. I wore a full suit which was different from any other dance I've been to. Actually I did debutante this year which demanded a full tuxedo with tails. When I arrived to the Fremd…Continue

Many of us wonder why our parents are too strict and control our lives. Supposedly, it is to keep us from making brash decisions and maybe just caring. They're always strict because they don't know what's going on in our life like in school and that means that they love you and that they won't let anything bad happen to you. I'ts hard to blame them, though, when you hear about some of the nutty things that happen today. If you give your parents the benefit of the doubt, and…Continue
Would you like the idea of only using your computer for homework and no worksheets? Well, it might not be long before this happens.This week we talked about the Progressive Movement and its goals. One of its goals is to foster efficiency or inventing new concepts to make society more efficient. I think that the Progressive Movement is very alive today. Many schools across the nation are taking action and making their schools paper-free. What is paper-…Continue
Our last president, George W. Bush, is the only president that I remember. Ever since I can remember, which is the same time he got elected, he has drawn attention not only from me but the press. He was very popular with the talk shows and the comedy shows. For example, "Late Night Show" host David Letterman had a segment in his show called "Great moments in Presidental History" where he showed clips of some previous speeches. The best part…Continue
Every year on March 17th everybody celebrates being Irish, whether you are or not. My mom's side came from Ireland so every year all of the relatives meet up for corn beef and cabbage, yum... I really didn't know that much information about this holiday so I decided to research this green holiday, so here is what I found out.
When I think of an American family, I think of the simple and happy family that was usually portrayed in early commercials: businessman father, stay at home mother, a good son and daughter. I'm not sure why. It seems like that was the ideal portrait of an American family, even though it wasn't true at all, since America is a collection of people from all over the…Continue
Students already planned their schedules and signed up for classes for next year. There is only one problem. Many students who filled out
a form to exempt out of P.E. have gotten denied. This is causing many problems
to juniors at the moment. Juniors who have been denied have to go see their counselor
and change their schedule and drop classes in order to fit P.E into it.
Like every year at Fremd, it changes, and…Continue
