A hoax. President Donald Trump once called climate change a hoax fashioned by China, tweeting “The concept of global warming was created by and for the Chinese in order to make U.S. manufacturing non-competitive”. On Tuesday March 28th, 2017 President Trump signed an executive order at the Environmen...

Think of the stereotypical American meal: a cheeseburger with fries, a hot dog at a baseball game, bacon and eggs in the morning, fried chicken if you’re living in the South. It’s not hard to spot the common factor tying all of these foods together- meat. It’s no secret that America runs on...

It’s that special moment. It’s that moment that every girl dreams of. Their significant other looks deep within their eyes behind a magnificent backdrop.

In the midst of my errands on the unusually warm February afternoon, I found myself walking out of Walmart feeling uncomfortably sweaty in my over-sized "USA" sweatshirt and shorts. In an attempt to get to my car as quickly as possible, I balanced the large trifold board and a gallon 2% milk in my arms,...

An anonymous student from Lambert High School defined Obsessive-compulsive disorder, commonly called OCD, as “someone must have things a certain way” and another student described it as “you have to be organized 24-7”.

I grew up in Georgia. I grew up in a conservative suburb an hours drive from the hospital in Atlanta where I was born. I grew up in a neighborhood that was empty on Sunday mornings, where my best friend brought me rosaries from church. I grew up watching Spongebob Squarepants, and eating Lunchables....
