Dreams transform into nightmares as expectations falter

I dreamed a dream that when one of the world’s most famous musicals came to the big screen, I would be blown away. I feel guilty for not loving the Golden Globe winning, critically acclaimed Les Miserables as much as everyone else, but it didn’t impress me much. Of course the cinematography and star studded cast were phenomenal, but for me, the story itself was problematic.

Memories captured through a lens

In the late 1800’s a peculiar type of art was rising and slowly becoming popular among the masses. With the invention of Brownie cameras by Kodak in the early 1900’s, photography became popular and progressive technology has led us to modern day DSLRs. Through cameras, pictures capture a moment in time and gives people the ability to create art.

Teacher has Wright stuff, dedication

Students believe that everything is a crisis, like when they can’t go out Friday, when they are grounded for a week, or even when they have a test. If only life was that hard. Unfortunately, there are some students that have faced more difficult problems, such as getting into accidents and becoming paralyzed, or being […]

Life lessons derived from teaching, problem solving, encouraging competition

School – necessary and very beneficial indeed, we can all attest to that. But by the end of a long school week, nearly everyone is exhausted and ready for the weekend, and most of us make it pretty obvious with our demeanor. However, for algebra II teacher and football coach Matthew Rice, that quality isn’t apparent. Everyone has their bad days, but Rice minimizes those days as much as possible, and doing what he loves helps him to be successful in that.

Music is considered a universal language, a force that is meant to bring people together in celebration of common achievements. Then there is the hit song Gangnam Style. Like it or not, most have heard the trademark beat of Korean Pop single PSY’s hit, and wondered what exactly the lyrics mean.
