History is taught in many different ways and these ways provide different perspectives of each event. Though it may seem that we know everything there is to know about our world; it is most definitely true (yet hard to admit) that we do not. We isolate ourselves from some of the most impacting events in history. One event that never made it into history books, and was kept a secret by the people who didn’t witness it, was a riot that took place in the heart of Detroit, Michigan. That is until August 4, 2017 when Detroit came out in theaters and provided the world with a secret event that changed the perspective of the social reform movement.
I have had many different math and science teachers throughout the years, but nearly all of them have made the same claim: the standard system is ridiculous and America should switch to the metric system. The standard system is the units of measurement such as inches and Fahrenheit that are used in the United States, and the metric system uses measurements like centimeters and Celsius and is used in the rest of the world. Every time I hear this claim, I flinch internally. What did all these people have against the standard system? Why would we use it so much if it was completely impractical? Perhaps I was a bit over-attached to the standard system since I grew up with it, and the metric system really was easier to make calculations with…did I have an unreasonable loyalty? Though I had my doubts, as I have grown up and progressed through school, I have discovered many merits of the standard system over the metric.
I’m not really a fan of action movies. I’ve never really liked the explosions and loud surround sound screeching of tires on pavement and bullets shooting through glass, or the cruelty of the antagonist in a cliche situation in which the female lead is taken hostage. Over the summer I saw a movie that was an exception to that. Baby Driver is a crime-action film from director Edgar Wright who also brought the world movies like Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz, and the Scott Pilgrim vs. The World adaptation.
This summer Spider-Man: Homecoming came out in theaters as Hollywood’s love for sequels continues to earn money. Over the years, there have been a total of seven Spiderman movies. Being the superhero fan that I am, I decided to watch this one in theaters. Although the main character Peter Parker (Tom Holland) is very attractive, I still didn’t enjoy the movie like I did the others.
The US Census found in 2013, 1 in 4 high schoolers work part-time jobs during the school year. Many of these jobs are in customer service, whether it’s in the fast food industry, a restaurant, a grocery store, or any other positions that deals with people, and helping customers get what they want or need.
