In 2017, the United States suffered as a nation divided under the new administration of President Donald Trump. Many people blame the country’s acceptance of Trump’s documented mockery and degradation of the marginalized for the rise in hateful and violent speech and actions that have come to light in the past year. This acceptance has left people of color, disabled people, and the LGBTQ community and other minority groups not only disappointed but also fearful that protection of their rights may be dwindling in the country’s current political climate. Directed by Micheal Gracey, “The Greatest Showman” was released in late…

It is not uncommon to see the phrase “No animals were harmed in the making of this film” in movie credits with animal actors. People love their furry friends, so it’s heartbreaking to see them in trouble or distress, be it staged in a film or in real life. Despite how many laws that have been made to protect animals and maintain their safety, some incidents slide through the cracks. The controversy in the new film “A Dog’s Purpose” seems to be the latest infamous case. On one of the sets of the film, a German Shepherd named Hercules was…

A report from April 2016 of…

By Stephen Skipper Many have said that 2016 was one of, if not, the worst years in recent memories. There was the attack on the Pulse nightclub in Orlando that took the lives of 50 people, the turmoil of the election season, and, of course, the countless big name celebrities that were lost.

The first of note to be lost, was musician David Bowie, passing from liver cancer at age 69. Performing for over…
