When I was in fourth grade, I threw myself down a flight of stairs to avoid taking a geography test. About a split second after I jumped, I realized that I had made a terrible, terrible decision; I hit the first step with a loud thud and tumbled the rest of the way down, collecting dirt as I rolled like a human broom. When I finally reached the feet of the stairs, several students and teachers rushed to me and tried to help me to my feet. As I rose, I felt a deep shame wash over my body, but I still couldn’t help but think: It was worth it. Continue reading

“One, two, three, and four” she proclaims softly, tapping the top of her teeth with a small finger. “Mommy!  I have 22 because I’m missing these two, see?”  This scene is being played out all over the United States.  It’s both a time of extreme happiness for parents, and a not-so-friendly reminder that if they want to keep their children smiling, they will need to go without for a few months.  This is a dilemma faced throughout the nation by underprivileged and immigrant families who want to make sure their children have the best start in life.

On July 4 1776 we as a nation officially declared our independence from British rule, thus establishing the governing rules that we carry with us to this very day. Our forefathers had dreams of a free country, where the masses possessed the power and had control. A country where people were free to govern themselves, free from the control of a dominating monarchy, free to determine their own fate. A country where the people were not controlled by the thoughts and whims of a single individual, but where people were free to dictate what was best for themselves.  Continue reading

In a time where the phone in your pocket is capable of providing you with interactive entertainment, along with an immense suite of practical utility all packaged in a portable format, it becomes harder and harder for dedicated gaming consoles to be relevant. However, as the Darwinian model predicts, the companies that manufacture and distribute these machines have attempted to adapt. Just in the past year we have seen Microsoft attempt to wriggle its way into the living rooms of people outside of their target audience by implementing television aggregating capabilities into the newly debuted Xbox One, essentially making it as much a set-top-box as it is a gaming console.
