As a certified Asian, I used to be able to say with utmost confidence that our campus had perfect feng-shui. However, just as the golden age of the Galactic Republic in “Star Wars” was ended by an angsty Jedi with issues letting go and qualms about the coarseness of sand, so has the balance of Trinity...

It would seem to be a regular Monday morning at Trinity Preparatory School.  Lethargic, sleep-deprived students yawn on their way to advisory, students meticulously unpack and repack their backpacks at their lockers, and teachers occasionally argue with students on whether or not their shorts are at...

Here's a little problem for all you math-fanatics out there: If Debbie has more than 130 Snapchat friends, and she has maintained streaks for at least 230 days with said Snapchat friends, how much of Debbie's life has she wasted sending one-second chin shots and blank screens devoid of any text, save...

   I’m going to level with you here. I’m really tired. I am writing this at 2:00 in the morning. My brain can somehow craft copious amounts of Guy Fieri memes but refuse to comprehend a Spanish reading that a child with one episode of Dora the Explorer under his or her belt would find easy. My...

   Ah, Sadie Hawkins. The one day Trinity Prep students don their touristy Hawaiian T-shirts or dust off their flamboyant 70’s attire. In theory, it is a great opportunity for girls to take initiative and ask guys to a school dance—something that is a bit of an anomaly at Homecoming or Prom. Yet its ...

Meadows have grass, oceans have water and deserts have sand. Society? Society has rules, people. Specifically, I’m talking about proper etiquette. Etiquette is defined by Merriam-Webster as “the conduct or procedure required by good breeding or prescribed by authority to be observed in social...

Spanning 6.2 miles in Manhattan, New York City, 5th Avenue has experienced some major population control since Tuesday November 8, 2016.

The cold shoulder on climate change

Filed under EDITORIALS, OPINIONS, SHOWCASE

  It’s discussed. It’s disregarded. It’s disputed.   Climate change is the most important global problem the Earth is facing. We have all heard about it, but what really is it and why is it important?   From the mid to late 20th century and forwards, increased levels of atmospheri...
