    Historic Moon Missions

    Paul Brandt demanded “Don’t tell me the sky’s the limit when there are footprints on the Moon,” and NASA responded with another gravity defying achievement. In the wee hours of Wednesday the 16th, Artemis 1 took off from Florida on its historic trip to the moon. This momentous trip is possible after nearly half a decade of preparations, but that is not to say that the ship took off with no problems. Artemis 1 encountered many issues: leak issues with the tanks, technical issues with the mega moon rocket, and even two hurricanes.  Last Minute Repairs The red crew, a team

    Nancy Pelosi Steps Down as Speaker of the House

    Why are Perfumes so Expensive?

    An ornate perfume is set on the shelf of my nearby Sephora. Curious, I take a small sample paper they offer and spritz it a few times. As I hold it up to my nose, a gorgeous blend of orange blossom, lavender, and musk whisk me away to a dream: a grove in a fragrant garden. Happily, I smell other perfumes. Then, my dreams fade away as I come back to the Sephora where my feet are placed, and realize that my family can’t afford these perfumes. Not because we are poor, but because designer brands sometimes set prices for

    Goodbye Happy Feet? Emperor Penguins at Risk of Extinction

    These cute, chubby, and fluffy animals grow to become Antarctica’s expert divers. They start their lives off as gray and cuddly chicks, waddling around their snowy terrain. Only one egg is laid by a female per breeding season, and the egg is then incubated by the male partner for about two months while the female searches for food. When the mother returns, both parents continue to raise and feed the chick until it is strong enough to leave the colony. A unique feature of this species is that one parent carries the baby between its legs for warmth until the

  • Respect for Marriage Act

    Respect for Marriage Act

    Someone once said “history repeats itself,” and today, as we celebrate the last few remaining months of 2022, Justice Clarence Thomas has called into reconsideration a case from history. Obergefell v Hodges was the 2015 decision that established a constitutional right to same-sex marriages in the United States. The roots of this decision digs deeper, questioning the historically perceived meaning of marriage––“a conjugal bond”––that is a union between a man and a woman and the act of procreation that is connected with it. However, as we all move a step ahead, we need to start embracing the widening horizons of

    The quiet tinkle of the glass shards falling to the floor was soon overpowered by the crunch of the intruder’s boots, as he made his way through the now demolished window and into the house. A hammer in his right and zipties clenched in his left hand as he sauntered over to Paul Pelosi: who slept on the bed oblivious. The intruder hunched over Pelosi as he loudly demanded the location of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.  In the predawn hours of Friday, October 28 Paul Pelosi was jerked out of his slumber as the intruder, David DePape, grilled him on
