The alarm clocks go off, the showers turn on, and the day has started. For many students, the morning routine would not be complete without the help of a warm cup of coffee. Unfortunately, it takes time to make coffee, and it is a hassle to have to go out somewhere before school to buy it. This problem could easily be solved if the school cafeteria sold coffee to its students.

Afghanistan. A country torn apart by war due to political and religious conflicts. Unfortunately, that description fails to express the true nature of the nation, a culture that is reflected in its citizens, and the stories of those individuals. One such story is told through Khaled Hosseini, who recounts his experiences there through the semi-fictitious story of a boy named Amir who grows up in Afghanistan, transitions to America, and then to Pakistan to redeem himself for the betrayal of his best friend, Hassan.

Big or small, we can all make a difference for the betterment of society.

It’s a Trap!

Beautiful mixtures of melodies, layers of smooth synthesizers, diverse tempos, and thumping 808 bass tracks; welcome to the world of trap music.

Although it originated in the early 2000s in the south of the United States, trap music has recently become ubiquitous, exploding in popularity around 2012. It has really taken over the stage of dubstep in terms of prominence, and plans to stay for a while. The music stemmed from several underground artists, also gaining recognition through dance forms.  It became even more widespread as popular artists such as Swedish House Mafia incorporated it into new hit singles. Moreover, Youtube has become a major outlet for it, with countless users uploading their remixes of popular songs with the addition of trap and grabbing millions of views every day. It is obvious that trap music is currently in full surge.
