By Serena Gomez |Staff Writer| Astrology and zodiac signs are often seen as a myth, but are they worth believing in? There are some people who believe that our destiny is written in the stars. However, others would say that it is just a bunch of hocus pocus. People could say that their zodiac signs, personality traits, and horoscopes describe them or their day completely accurately, but for some reason, find one way or another to say it is a superstition. I am a Leo—and I love it. According to horoscope.lovetoknow.com, Leo's are known to be confident, loyal, jump into action, passionate, and in control, but also a little dramatic. Other than being a little over dramatic … [Read more...] about Astrology, worth believing?

Because of their dependence on technology, they are said to be entitled and narcissistic,” stated KPCC's Evie Liu. Most of the other generations will look at millennials as the diverse, narcissistic, ignorant generation. However, their way of living is understandable, as they constantly try to keep up with the latest technology to stay in touch with peers. Millennials want social changes like gay rights, immigration, and equality, but no one is willing to actually do anything because they are content with how easy life … [Read more...] about Millennials need more motivation

By Serena Gomez |Staff Writer| "I love you," the three words and eight letters that so many people yearn to hear. Love to many is an emotion and to others a state of mind that every human strives to have and is afraid to lose. However, what they fail to realize is that there are two different types of love: healthy and unhealthy. A healthy love is filled with support, faith, and care. An unhealthy love is the exact opposite; it is consumed by jealousy, control, and obsessiveness—it is tainted. "On average, 20 people per minute are victims of physical violence by an intimate partner in the United States," according to the Center for Disease Control. "When someone says … [Read more...] about Choose healthy love
By Serena Gomez |Staff Writer| It is unhealthy to gain so much weight in so little time. In my opinion, I believe we should learn how to take care of ourselves on an individualistic level rather than allowing others to invade our personal health choices. “Oral Roberts implemented a new prerequisite for their first year students in January, requiring all Freshmen to wear a Fitbit fitness tracker," stated Marie Solis from Mic News. "The devices data, which includes statistics on steps taken, distance traveled and calories burned will sync to the school’s online grade book, where instructors will evaluate students according to how much they exercise on a weekly basis,” stated … [Read more...] about Students should not have health monitored

Today, however, it seems like divorce is becoming one of the traditional parts of life as well. “About 40 to 50 percent of married couples in the United States divorce,” according to the American Psychological Associations. In the past, it’s been said that girls imagine their huge Cinderella wedding with the perfect dress, location and most importantly, Prince Charming (in some cases another Cinderella)—dreaming that one day they will have the perfect life with the most romantic significant … [Read more...] about Marriage is losing its value
By Serena Gomez |Staff Writer| Media coverage of the 2016 presidential election has created an ideal model of who I do not want as president. Bernie Sanders, Ted Cruz, Hillary Clinton, and Donald Trump are all significant to the election, but for some reason we hear more about Trump’s horrific words and actions than any other candidate. According to CNN, Sanders said, “you explain to me how a major network on the evening news has 81 minutes of Trump, 20 seconds of Bernie Sanders. Does that make sense to anybody?” The media is biased and creates negative images of certain political candidates, but Trump is using every second of it to his advantage. “FDR was the first ‘radio’ … [Read more...] about Media bias clouds presidential election
