Skyline or Goldstar?

There has always been a disagreement and most likely always will be, the disagreement is Skyline or Goldstar? Skyline and Goldstar both serve the same thing but the real question is who served it better? Each restaurant does have different recipes but it’s the same concept. There is not really a way to figure out which one tastes better because everyone has different taste buds, but here is some of what some people think around Cincinnati.

Gamers vs athletes

What do you like to do doing your free time, maybe play some video games? Picture being paid to play video games for a living, like how athletes get paid to play football, basketball, and any other sport. Wouldn’t that be something.

Would you consider playing video games as a sport? Most people would say no because you sit at home and just use a controller to move a person or object around and destroy, create, and kill. There’s not much to it. It’s not like you have to run a couple miles , make a ball go through a hoop while traveling at great speed, or hit a baseball pretty far to get a homerun or even get to a base.

NFL Week 15 Winners/Losers

Winners

Todd Gurley II, RB, Los Angeles Rams: What a thoroughly dominating performance, and one that looks all the more impressive considering it came against a Seattle Seahawks defense that hadn’t allowed more than 19.3 non-PPR or 22.3 PPR fantasy points in a game and had allowed averages of 15.2 (third-fewest) and 19.7 (fourth-fewest) in those respective scoring systems to opposing running backs entering the week. Gurley’s 45.0 PPR and 42.0 non-PPR fantasy points set new career highs for the third-year running back, and the latter was the best single-game score by any individual player all season.

The Repeal of Net Neutrality

Many of us enjoy spending time using one of mankind’s greatest inventions, the Internet. A wide source of not only information and necessities but also a source of great entertainment for kids and adults alike. This service, which today many would likely consider essential to everyday activity, is actually serviced through providers such as Comcast, Time Warner, and many others who you have likely heard of. These providers, who usually also specialize in the distribution of cable services (as they are all mainly TV providers), charge users monthly for free, uninhibited use of Internet services and capabilities, no matter what they may be.

 

What many don’t realize, is that this freedom of Internet access stems from the insurance of a certain piece of legislation known as “Net Neutrality”. Net Neutrality is what insures that Internet service providers, or ISPs for short, can neither slow down or speed up your connection for certain websites. This is so that these companies cannot take advantage of this service, and charge the consumer extra money so that their speeds can all match up and they won’t receive poorer quality on some of their services. Or, it did at least, because recently there was a vote to repeal this important piece of security for the American public.

Antonio Brown Out

One of Pittsburgh’s biggest weapons, Antonio Brown, is sidelined until at least the post season.

Steelers’ star wide receiver suffered a partially torn calf muscle in 27-24 loss to the New England Patriots. The injury will not require surgery and the Steelers hope that the injury will be healed in time for the playoffs. Brown suffered the injury early in the second quarter after catching two passes for 24 yards.

Defend A Friend

Defend a Friend club has started this year. They are meeting on Tuesdays in room 106. The club meets every Tuesday at 3:10. Defend a friend is a club to that is to help stop bullying. It is a great club that comes up with cool ways to lighten people’s’ mood. In the past they have put sticky notes around the school with nice sayings to brighten your day. Defend a friend was started at Glen Este by a student who was bullied and wanted to find a way to stop it and to help others who were bullied. There is about 3.2 million high schoolers bullied a year. It would be great if West Clermont was bully free. Our school should have a big Defend a Friend club to help stop those who think it is ok to pick on someone. Everyone has helped someone and felt good about it, so why not feel good everyday while you come up with ways to help someone. Defend a Friend came up with a play they performed in front of the school one year. It was a great play that really showed what bullying could do to someone. You can go to a meeting at any time and if you decide you don’t want to go you can stop. If you go you probably won’t want to stop though. We walk the hallways of this school and don’t see what is really going on. Students in our school could be bullied and we don’t notice. So join the club and and find a way to make a difference for those who are getting bullied in our school.

Coat Donations

Our school is having a coat donation this winter. If you have any old coats that no longer fit you or you no longer like you can take them to Ms. Burris in room 325.There is a big blue barrel that is in her room that you can put your coats in. The coats need o be gently used though. Our school wants to make sure that everyone can stay warm this winter. They are giving to kids that are around our community that cannot afford to buy new coats. This also a barrel in the main lobby for you to drop off your coats. If you tell Amanda or sign the sheet that says you donated Ms.Burris will give you a coupon for a free cheese coney from Gold Star. They are taking donations through January 10th. It is getting colder and colder, the last thing people want to be is without a coat on so please donate coats that you no longer use. There is about 1.35 million kids in America who experience homelessness every year. In the winter they are constantly freezing, one coat could make a huge difference to the children who freeze in the 20 degree weather that we endure in Ohio. There is 800,000 people in America that are homeless each night, now imagine how they felt over the weekend while it was around 20 degrees. While we were able to sit in our cars or homes warm they had nowhere to go. So if you see a coat that you could donate sitting around please donate them to our school to help those who need them.
