Frustration in the Air as Faulty Fire Alarm System Sounds Off

Article by Ryan O’Donnell

On March 15th, 2018, the entire student body and staff at Kings High School were taken by surprise as the fire alarm sent its piercing siren-like sound throughout the school. They shuffled to get out, with confused looks on their faces, as they could not see or smell smoke. Much to everyone’s dismay, the culprit was discovered to have been a shuttlecock hitting the fire alarm during a badminton game in gym class. In a bizarre example of lightning striking twice, a nearly identical situation occurred about a week later. Additionally, in between the two incidents was a poorly timed instance where the fire alarm seemingly malfunctioned and went off several times in a single day. This incident triggered a small – albeit vocal – outcry from staff and students alike. Continue reading

Something Fishy

Opinion by Jess Harmon

I remember watching the absolute chaos on my screens, as they announced the wrong winner, claiming that La La Land was the Best Picture winner before quickly correcting their mistake and announced that Moonlight was the true winner. The immense joy and pride I felt when I heard that this film got the recognition it deserves, is one that only cinema can provoke in me.  A year later I was desperately hoping that one of the films that made me feel the way Moonlight did would win the same title.  I was rooting for Get Out, directed by Jordan Peele, because it pushed boundaries, generated conversations, and reminded me of why I fell in love with film in the first place. Sadly, Shape of Water, directed by Guillermo del Toro, was the winner of Best Picture for the 90th Academy Awards and to say the least, I did not get that same feeling of joy, and here is why.
