The Death of Pop Music

Faizaan Amanat, Staff Writer

September 26, 2018

  A decade is most fondly remembered by its music. The 80’s gave us “Billie Jean” (Michael Jackson), the 90’s gave us “Smells Like Teen Spirit” (Nirvana), and the 00’s gave us “Crazy in Love” (Beyonce/Jay-Z). For the most part, the early 2010s were a solid decade for music, with...

  “No young person in America should miss out on the chance to excel in [STEM] fields just because they don’t have the resources,” said Former President Barack Obama in 2015. High school’s sole purpose, or at least Wayzata High School’s, is to “prepare each and every student to thrive...

  Seeing that the A&E section has been dissolved due to the departure of Kai the A&E guy, I thought the summer issue would be a fitting issue to throw a movie review into the mix, of course making it relevant to the sports page. As far as classic sports movies go in Minnesota, “Miracle”...

This Big Nose Can Smell the Truth

  Nothing bothers me more than someone with false intentions. When unreliability meets laziness, the worst of characters are born. Don’t say that you’re gonna do something, and then don’t do it. Quit wasting my time, and quite frankly, your time too. Words mean nothing unless they have actions...

  On May 25th, Wayzata High School students evacuated the school for what seemed like a drill. In reality, the pottery kiln had started a fire, creating significant damages.

The Truth about the College Board

Katie Lins, Design Editor

August 14, 2018

  Every year, hopeful high school students pile into a freezing cold room and take a grueling 4 hour test. A test we are lead to believe proves our “preparedness” to colleges, but I believe it fails to accurately show a student’s intelligence, level of motivation, and college readiness. Each...

  Cardi B, Kanye, Migos, and Rihanna all sing using the n-word. But what, or who, dictates when this word can be used? When discussing the the use of the n-word, many people question why African Americans have the right to use it, and why non-people of color don’t.   It’s important to...

  African Americans have worked so hard to end segregation, and we are technically segregating a word--which shouldn’t be possible; it’s baffling to me.   We as a society have decided to take a word that used to be offensive, changed it, and made an unofficial rule about who can and cannot...
