It’s 2018 and there is a new epidemic going on around the United States. You have probably heard of it or
have maybe even used one, juuling. The term juuling usually refers to this recreational use. Many students
bring their juul to school because of their sleek design and resemblance to a USB drive, juul products are
easy for students to conceal and use in schools, maybe even sometimes while the class is going on.
The product is made for and legally available to only adults 18 and older. However in many cases, the
media has reported that these devices are being used by kids and teenagers mainly to look “cool”. The
juul itself can be used unless you have a thing called a pod. A pod is what you put into the juul to get the
nicotine and puffs. Each pod has about 200 puffs, which has the same amount of nicotine as an entire
pack of cigarettes.
A juul is basically an e cigarette, but researchers don’t really know how bad juuls can affect someone’s life.
Dr. Michael Ong says that “ There likely would be health risks associated with it, though they’re not going
to be the same as a traditional cigarette. So I have to say it, it is not cool to juul especially in school.
It’s fall, and that means it is starting to get cold outside and we need our jackets and coats. Some people
in the Cincinnati area don’t have the privilege to go out and buy brand new coats for the cold weather and
really any jacket at all. This is why many people have created coat drives. A coat drive is where people in
the community can drop off old but in good condition jackets and coats for less fortunate people in the
community. A common coat drive that people like is the St. Vincent de Paul. It has three locations for you
to drop off your coats. Barrels are located at all Greater Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky Gold Star chili
locations except restaurants in a mall. Another place the barrels are located are at Kemba Credit Unions,
and the last place is at your cleaners and Valetone cleaners. This event has been going on for about 140
years, think about all the people that got to stay to stay a little warmer during the cold days. If you happen
to have any old jackets or coats that are in good condition but you don’t use or fit in them anymore, please
drop them off at a coat drive and help people stay warm!!

It isn’t unusual for teens or even adults to come home from school or work and sit down on the couch and watch some good TV, maybe with a snack, and just relax after a long day. There are so many services you can use to stream your favorite shows, but which one is the best? There are many questions you have to take into consideration, for example, is it worth spending your money on? How good is the quality? As of right now in 2018, the two most popular streaming services are Netflix and Hulu, but which is the best? Continue reading Netflix or Hulu?
After game 2 of the western conference semifinals, Draymond Green grabbed the microphone after Golden State win with the score of 121-116 over New Orleans, and there was plenty of evidence that he was in no mood to back down from anyone’s challenge. The warriors forward had done head to head with Ramon Rondo just before halftime at the Oracle Arena. The pelicans point guard took after Draymonds “ words of wisdom” after warrior player, Klay Thompson, hit a buzzer beater three that gave them golden state a 58-55 lead at half. Draymond and Anthony Davis tumbled down the floor and Draymond performed he is act so well that he got the double foul. After the game, during the interviews, Charles Barkley made a comment about Draymond saying, “ I want to punch him in the face so bad”. Draymond also had something to say. “ I heard what he said. A lot of guys talk on Tv, stand behind a microphone and a Tv screen. The fact of the matter is if you feel that strongly about it, then punch me in my face when you see me. If you’re not going to punch me in my face when you see me and be straight up with it, then please just shut up. It’s no different than somebody sitting behind a computer screen tweeting and saying useless crap like, ‘I’ll knock you out’, and you never see them in life. But he has seen me a bunch of times and he will see me again this year. Punch me in my face when you see me, or if not no one cares what you have done. You off and it is what it is. So if you aren’t going to punch me next time, then just stop talking about it. Period.” Obviously he had to voice his opinion about it and say all of that because it is useless crap. But other than that’s statement Draymond doesn’t care but he has the better stats and has been the Warriors best all around player during the postseason helping them for Stein curry return. “We love his intensity. He’s been playing amazing this whole playoff run, taking the challenge defensively who ever he is guarding, being an officiator on offense, knocking down shots, good shots. It’s fun to watch and when his emotions are like that and he’s having fun doing what he’s doing and that’s a big pick up for our team”, curry said about Draymond green.
Hard headed or strong minded Sometimes when you go into the military you need to be both. Going into the military affects you physically and mentally, it’s not an easy thing to do and it’s not for everyone. Some people known from early on in their life that want or are made to go into the military or the navy. While others parents kinda push them to go into the military or some type of service probably because they did and their parents did and they want the tradition or service to continue on.
Although some people join for expenses. For example full medical coverage for you and your family. Once you join the military and you become a member you receive immediate full health benefits for themselves and their intermediate family; not your long distance step cousin.
Another example would be college or skills and training. The military provides advanced technical training in variety of career fields. Also many military members are able to attend college that is usually paid for by tuition assistance. Some people go straight into the military after high school because they can’t afford schooling and need assistance so they join and receive the tuition assistance.
