In school you have four physical education options; a school sports team, PE, Yoga, or an independent sport. Independent sports are basically just sports that are not offered by the school, but can be done outside on your own time as a substitute for PE, where you get credits which are necessary for graduation. School sports are different from individual sports, because they are provided by the school, such as football, volleyball, water polo, and many more.

Last year alone, the United States gave over one billion dollars to Saudi Arabia in foreign aid and billions more in oil sales. For decades now, Saudi Arabia has been one of our greatest allies in the Middle East; perhaps due to their opposition to terrorism groups such as Al-Qaeda put more transparently for their compliance with the United States in business transactions and foreign policy.

As time progresses, people assume that infamous American prejudice slips further into our pasts. However, time recently stopped for a 14 year-old Muslim boy, Ahmed Mohamed, when he brought a homemade clock to school and was arrested because teachers falsely accused him of creating a bomb. His clock helped bring to light the perpetual existence of American prejudice due to the judgments made about him based off of his religion.

A city buzzing with the constant purr of neon lights, and the glow of advertisement. Based off of dishonest business and revolved around gluttony, this imaginary city is the focal point of Halsey’s new album Badlands. The city prides itself in sin, and lures tourists to its bright lights like flies. People far enough from the alluring force of the Badlands don’t dare talk about it because those are the Badlands, you don’t go there.

Football Win on Date Night
Article and Photo By: Jina Lee
Another win for CDM football! CDM defeated Northwood with a score of 48-7. The football team is working more as a unit than individuals in order to lead themselves to victory. The first points were a field goal by kicker Jason Neiger, #18, for 3 points. Then Senior Peter Bush, #12, scored the first touchdown in the second offense drive. After half time, JV went in to play. For the whole game there was seven touchdowns and two field goals with a total of 48 points.
Winning this game made it even better for the players because it was date night. Players had to ask a girl to be their date to the football game. The football player has to give their jersey to the girl so they can wear it to the game. After the game, the dates go on the field, not only to congratulate them, but to meet their coaches and maybe their parents also. This was a fun way for the girls to support the football players and have school spirit.

It’s so unfortunate that a city lit up with life is so commonly mistaken for a place ridden with theft and fear. When stories were told to me about the country of Portugal, I heard of shady streets and people you shouldn’t trust. I was told about the crumbling economy and devastated buildings. Everything was mentioned but the indescribable exuberance in the city of Lisbon.
