Vulgar dance moves move some teachers, students to disgust

Audrey Benelisha

October 14, 2010

It’s the event that all teachers dread. Their task? To supervise and manage the sweaty heap of students that are grotesquely bumping and grinding to the pulsating music. As raunchy as that is stated, this is the truth of high school dances. When hundreds of teenagers are gathered into an o...

Questioning the freedom of the press

Questioning the freedom of the press

Bryn Gallagher

October 14, 2010

The First Amendment of the constitution makes one thing clear: a free press is an important right of the people. Without it what keeps us from a horribly corrupt government? Nothing. But is the press really that free? Are the stories that we read truly the unbiased, hard-hitting current events th...

At Foothill, college is a priority, and it shows in the high acceptance rates of our students at colleges all over the country. Starting everyone off in the mandatory EDA class, Education in the Digital Age, the school pounds in those UC A through G college requirements. In case that didn't fully do it for the students, ...

A demon's dour bellow disrupts you from your sleepless daze. You're famished, disoriented, and gasping for breath. Hardly a sound can be heard beyond the closed wooden gates, but that's none of your concern; you must defeat this beast before your 6 hour sleep cycle kicks into high gear. Even if you ...

Career Day not as horrible as expected

Career Day not as horrible as expected

Danielle Draper

October 7, 2010

When I first heard about senior career day, I will admit it, I groaned. The stolen lunch, the pointlessness, career day was just a waste of time. I was incensed that we were being made to learn about careers when most of us were already applying to colleges; careers are a thing of the distant future....

There isn't much to choose from; on the whole long list of meal after meal on a menu, there is very little that you can actually eat. Why? Because you are a vegetarian. Being vegetarian means eating no meat whatsoever. And, alas, that does include fish. If it was once a living, breathing anima...

Crying foul? Threaten death instead

Crying foul? Threaten death instead

Celeste Lopez

“This is my daughter, and I will kill the (expletive) who fought her.” This threat did not come from the mouth of a student; it came from an infuriated parent by the name of James Jones who decided that intimidating students would be the only way to stop them from bullying his daughter.   The outrage that Jones portrayed came from th...

It can be heard ringing out across every school and workplace and is probably one of the most commonly misused words in America: retarded. Everyone from elementary school students to politicians and celebrities misinterpret its meaning. Mental retardation can be caused by several genetic problems; one of...

Discrimination is everywhere: in the streets, in the media, and in the work place - but discrimination isn't always bad, it can even save lives. The American Red Cross does this every day, determining who can and can't donate blood without risking their health or the health of someone else. But ...

Foothill’s math and science scores fall behind

Foothill’s math and science scores fall behind

Geneva Douma

September 28, 2010

It’s no secret that Foothill is obsessed with test scores. The 906 test score posters, the balloons - the rallies. The administration advertises the yearly test scores as if they are the entire summation of the worth of the students in attendance. Every year, students wait with bated breath hop...
