Many of my Shabbat dinners are spent with Kevin and Ann Rabbani. Mrs. Rabbani is an amazing cook, and Mr. Rabbani is a great host-- yet, despite all the time we’ve spent together, I never knew how they started a successful cosmetic business. At many of our Shabbat dinners, much of the conversation revolve...

If Aquaman is supposed to be an example of DC movie making at its best, then it is no wonder that the DC Universe is completely dwarfed by Marvel. This movie is a two and half hour mess with both a plot structure that is flimsier than a three-year-old’s Lego creation and writing that is no more adva...

Adults like to tell millenials that social media is evil. I used to roll my eyes just like everyone else, and kept on using Instagram and Facebook as if it didn’t make a difference. I had a Snapchat account for a quick second in freshman year before I decided that close-ups of my face with dog ears wasn...

This year, seniors did not receive a set test schedule at the beginning of the quarter. Instead, as the year went on, teachers would periodically announce, “We need to have a test next week. What day works for you?” Now, on the one hand, this is every underclassman’s dream. I can’t even co...
