Quarantine is starting to feel eternal. As the virus approaches its peak, my friends and I have begun to play videogames as a pastime.

To many, it probably sounds very ironic for someone to say their fourth year of high school was the “worst.” After...

To help our bodies prepare, we retreat to the weight rooms and gyms to add more resistance and to challenge our bodies further than the field, pool, or track can provide. As a result of the COVID-19 outbreak, athletes who...
Timeline of Coronavirus Natural Response and Escalation Over the past few weeks, the coronavirus epidemic has transformed from a situation that many overlooked into a situation that seemingly spiraled out of control. First off, there are many negative consequences this epidemic has brought, for example, its toll on the economy and the deaths of those whom we might have known....
