"Freedom of speech suggests that you can say whatever you think and that you stand next to your ideas that you defend. The others cannot agree with you but, if what you say doesn’t affect the life of others, you are still free to express yourself." - Marianne Demarolle, a 12th grader at École Internationale Bilingue The recent tragic events in...
Thursday, January 31st. It's the last period of the day, and most students are slogging through to the end of the day, just wanting it to be over. Today though, things are different, as excitement fills the halls during passing period. In the B hallway, chants of "The Mavs are back" and "Finals Bound" echo about the hallway, as...
It’s that time of the year again! The sun sets a little earlier, the leaves turn a little browner, and (if you’re in Texas) the weather drops by 10 degrees... But with winter comes one of the most stressful shopping seasons: Christmas Shopping! After capitalizing on Black Friday and Cyber Monday, you only have a few gifts left to buy,...

Too good to draft the next guaranteed superstar but lacking the tools to make a deep playoff run, these teams exist on the fringe of the league, trapped in a purgatorial status with success far away. From the retirement of Mike Modano in...
For all seniors, most juniors, and some sophomores, the SAT presents a daunting challenge. At least it used to. With college admissions rapidly becoming one of the most competitive yet convoluted and sometimes unfair processes that high schoolers have to go through, standardized testing has attained an immense level of importance. However, despite all the tutoring, preparation, and worry...
Introduced into the Congressional record in 1945 amidst the pinnacle of the second Red Scare, “The Forty-Five Goals of Communism” was intended to subvert America on a cultural level with a communist agenda. Of course, this never came close to happening, but some of the tenets concerning art and music still remain, even though they never resulted in the...
