At 375 days before election day, I did feel a little silly asking people to go on record making predictions about its outcome. But they say history repeats itself, so I interviewed 12 teachers from CHS’ social studies and business departments. My question: at this point (Oct. 29-30), who would you predict to win the Republican nomination? Below are their (paraphrased) responses.

It's that time of the year again, time for the infamous March Madness. A time filled with triumph and misery. Each year, people fill out their brackets with hopes of near perfection, though as the tournament begins and ends, people's high hopes often fall into disappointment. However, in very lucky cases, people are actually somewhat happy with how their brackets turned out.

The 72nd Golden Globes took place in Los Angeles a few weeks ago with hosts Amy Poehler and Tina Fey. Since it was the comedians supposedly last time hosting the awards, most viewers expected it to go out with a bang. Overall, most Americans and fellow CHS students thought that the award show did, in fact, go out with a bang. From the hostesses’ hysterical and political jokes to moving speeches made by the winners, it is clear that this year’s Golden Globes was something to remember.

On January 20th, President Barack Obama made his state of the union speech. President Obama mentioned numerous proposals but one stood out in particular. In his speech, the President proposed to have free tuition for community college. College, in general, is very costly. Not everyone can afford to go to college. This ultimately means that students must loan money to pay for their college education. Now, this is what President Obama is looking to change. Students who can cannot pay to go to certain schools can go to community college instead without paying anything.

Each year the swift arrival of Autumn brings forth the changing of the color of leaves, cooler temperatures and a glorious holiday solely dedicated to eating. Yet perhaps one of the most recent Fall traditions is the always highly anticipated launch of a new version of the iPhone.

To some misguided American citizens, March Madness is just a basketball tournament deemed irrelevant by their busy schedules. But to a particular cult of people, March Madness is a month long holiday, and the light at the end of a dark winter. I speak of course of the disciples of college basketball, who for one month abandon their everyday lives to camp out at their local Buffalo Wild Wings and exist only in a parallel universe that revolves around collegiate basketball. The bracket pools are intense, with the power to sever friendships and break apart families. The amount of research and preparation that goes into creating a superior bracket rivals that of any mission to space or Apple invention ever.

Video Games are a huge hit during the holiday season. All the newest games are released and everyone is itching to see next-generation consoles. Therefore, here is my review for 2013’s games of the holiday season.

The Assassin’s Creed series first began as a simple action/stealth game that gave players the opportunity to experience the life of an assassin. Since then, the series has developed and expanded.

Every year on December 31st, we gather with family and friends to celebrate the passing of yet another year. Whether you commemorate the occasion with loud music, delicious food, or by staying up to see the ball drop in Times’ Square, New Year’s Eve is always a memorable event. Another way that people commonly ring in the New Year is by making a New Year’s resolution.

Every year after Thanksgiving is done and over with, families wrap up and freeze their leftovers, clean up the kitchen, and head out the door in the early hours of the morning to venture out into the realm of Black Friday shopping. With stores like Target and Sears opening as early as 8 PM Thanksgiving night this year, it is safe to say this day has become widely anticipated by many Americans throughout the year.

As the eleventh anniversary of the 9/11 tragedy passes, we commemorate the lives of valiant World Trade Center heroes. The results of these attacks still reverberate through the nation; however, the growth of the World Trade Center complex will help citizens memorialize and recover from the devastation of this tragedy.

If there is one thing most Americans can agree upon, it’s this: as a nation, there is a definite need for healthy food reform.  With obesity on a rise, even the smallest change is a step towards a healthier country.  But this quest for health isn’t always in search of lighter foods.  Recently, people have been flocking in masses to become gluten-free, or vegetarian, or just drastically change their dietary habits based on what they heard was good for them.  Here, we address the reality of an old favorite: organic foods.  We’ve all heard of the benefits; it’s better for the environments, it’

The controversy over whether homosexuals should be given the same marriage rights as heterosexual couples is one of today’s most heated debates. On May 9, this argument received a new element with President Obama’s endorsement of gay marriage, making him the first US president to fully support this level of gay civil rights. In an interview on ABC News Obama announced, “I’ve just concluded that for me personally it is important for me to go ahead and affirm that I think same-sex couples should be able to get married”.

This past Friday, Facebook, one of the top 20 biggest brands in the world, went public.  It joined the NASDAQ stock market with an Initial Price Offering (IPO) of $38.00 per share, one of the largest in history.  Despite Facebook’s worldwide renown however, the stock has had a shaky start in its first two days of trading.  Because of Facebook’s widespread popularity, incredible growth, and astounding success over the past years, traders expected the stock to increase in value.  Many quandaries, however, such as a delayed opening, high initial IPO and last minute change in IPO, and confusion wi

In the past couple weeks; the United States has recognized the possibility of a war between Iran and Israel. With many tensions of the Middle East relating to Israel, this does not come as a surprise. Israel, which has been the subject of many conflicts and wars in the past, is fearful of the advancing nuclear program in Iran. With a nuclear Iran, Israel would have to be more careful in its foreign relations in the Middle East. The United States would also need to take some caution in handling the unpredictable Iran.
