While many of us have heard of the stories from the government workers having to work without pay and those you have lost their jobs, one area of our country is suffering just as much but can’t speak for itself. The country’s National Parks and monuments have been suffering from the lack of employees to cover its system that has over 330 million visitors a year.

On the afternoon of Wednesday November 7th, President Trump once again rearranged and substituted the office of attorney general by forcing Jeff Sessions out. He replaced him with a new, more loyal member of the administration, as Sessions was known for speaking out against Trump for the Russian probe investigation involving the 2016 election. The event is seen as negative due to the fact the resignation came from the request of Mr. Trump and Sessions was quoted with saying this exactly “Dear Mr. President, at your request I am submitting my resignation,” and added that “Most importantly, in my time as attorney general we have restored and upheld the rule of law”. The standing attorney general for the time remaining will be Matthew G. Whitaker, Session’s chief of staff. Continue reading Jeff Sessions Fired After “Disloyalty” to the Administration
Over the past few weeks the Chinese government has been expanding the size and range of their newly established detainment camps in the western half of the country. In the past they have had issues with certain divisions of the population which have led them to violations of human rights. Here there are now hundred of thousands of Muslims that are being the kept in these indoctrinated centers. The reasoning behind this comes from new Chinese policies where the government looks to “brainwash” the inmates into the government party propaganda. The idea is reasoned because the government felt there has been a rising wave of extremism in the province of Xinjiang. Continue reading Chinese Internment Camps
Following announcements made in the Spring of 2018 for FC’s plans to move to the MLS in 2019, the team also announced that they would be building a new stadium. Much debate was held over where it would be from the suburb of Oakley, to the West End and even ideas of moving the team across the river to Newport. After much debate and city council speculation, civilians of the West End came to an agreement with FC to put the Stadium at the site of Willard Stargell Stadium, the now home of Cincinnati Public Schools football and soccer programs. On October 9th first designs were released for the new design. Continue reading FC Cincinnati Stadium Reveal
Tesla and SpaceX CEO, Elon Musk, has recently finished his first stretch of the Loop transportation system. The system, located in Los Angeles, is aimed at reducing traffic emission by promoting clean, efficient public transit in the form of a tunnel loop system. It will take passengers, in their own cars or pods, under the city to bypass traffic. Musk has aimed to make a 2.7 mile loop in busy West Los Angeles but is driving to create a 60 mile loop, which will set it at the longest subway type system in the US thus far.

The women’s soccer team goes into their last month of play with ambitions to improve to an above five-hundred record as they now sit at 4-7-1. The girls game October 2nd is a rematch to last years lost in which they were shutout 0-3. Their competitor, the Loveland Tigers, are a tough matchup, as going into Tuesday night’s game they are undefeated in the league, boast a record of 8-0-3 and are reigning state champs from the 2017 season. The start of the game brought out a lot of speed from Loveland as ten minutes into the game Katelyn Andrews scored and less than a minute later at 28:32 Lauren Williams scored.
The Lady wolves weren’t able to gain any more speed on Loveland as at 7:02 Kat Palmer scored for Loveland and again at 1:03 Katelyn Andrews scored another. In all the Lady Tigers were able to get 12 shots on goal in the first half and our Wolves were held to 1.
The girls defense came out strong but offense still lacked. Defensively, goalie Mackenzie Cellis was able to stop 18 shots on goal and reached a landmark career save record of 500. When asked how she felt she had this to say, “I’m incredibly thankful for my coaches throughout the years in helping me receive this milestone and pushing me to my limits and further. It’s been an amazing four years and I wouldn’t change anything about my experience as a keeper for West Clermont” While the second half only brought one goal from Loveland the Lady Wolves were still unable to score anything, getting one shot on goal. Senior Captain Megan Dewald commented on the game by saying, “Loveland is always a tough opponent. We combined and made some good plays happen, we just couldn’t get it in the back of the net. We had some mistakes with not taking marks but overall we all played hard and saw some god things that we’ve been working on in practice.” Hopefully the team can take what they learned from the loss and improve on it for the remainder of the year. The team now falls to 4-8-1 and will take on Northwest Saturday October 6th.
As most Americans know, On June 12th this year President Trump went to North Korea for the first summit meeting between the leaders of the United States of America and the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea. A large outcome of the meeting came from Leader Kim who had apparently, as Trump stated in a Tweet, “agreed to allow Nuclear inspections, subject to final negotiations, and to permanently dismantle a test site and launch pad in the presence of international experts.” Since the historic meeting, further denuclearization progress have remained stalled. No real forward progress has been made, but since the summit negotiations between the US and North Korea has stirred up. One question remains, will offers from North Korean leader Kim Jong Un be enough to convince the U.S. to meet his demands? Continue reading What the Korean Summit Means to America
Since President Trump entered the office of President, he has focused much of his energy on “putting America First”. Mr. Trump has planned to do this primarily from a economic viewpoint. We’ve seen a rise in GDP over the last quarter 4.1%, he’s reintroduced many jobs that were said to never come back and made one of the largest and most controversial tax cuts in many years. America is prospering, but are we really? Continue reading Chinese Trade War
