I recently saw the horror satire flick Scream 4 (or stylishly written SCRE4M) and it brought up some good points about social networking. In the opening scene, two girls discuss Facebook and how information can be made available to others, including strangers. One of the girls wishes to stay Facebook friends with a stalker-esque guy because his profile picture is good looking, highlighting how our online lives have almost become our prostheses.

Recently, I watched a charming Dianna Agron (Glee) interview on Jimmy Kimmel Live.

Dianna noticed how Beyonce took a mint just like a regular person, and Dianna felt like Beyonce was one of them. You can check out the beginning of the interview here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9lqY-oNbfk8 Her… Continue Reading

Say goodbye to the cold chill that was characteristic of February and say hello to the sunny skies of April. After weeks of gloomy weather reminiscent of Gore Verbinski’s The Ring, we can finally go outdoors and enjoy true Californian weather. It is also time for high school students to decide what they want to do this summer. Some will spend their time outdoors on family vacations. Others may take up coveted jobs or internships. Then there are those who wish to continue learning throughout the year and keep their brains sharp for the coming… Continue Reading

Teacher Appreciation Week

Published Saturday, April 9, 2011 by Katie

“If a doctor, lawyer, or dentist had 40 people in his office at one time, all of whom had different needs, and some of whom didn’t want to be there and were causing trouble, and the doctor, lawyer, or dentist, without assistance, had to treat them all with professional excellence for nine months, then he might have some conception of the classroom teacher’s job.” –Donald Quinn Teacher Appreciation Week is from May 2-6. Teachers have such a big influence on our lives; I, as a student, can honestly say that I would have vastly different… Continue Reading
