Exploring Italian Futurism: The Art Movement That Was Precursor to Fascism
Exploring Italian Futurism: The Art Movement That Was Precursor to Fascism
Gabriel Davidson, Reporter • May 12, 2022

Fascism is a little-understood ideology, though it no doubt has had its ramifications on the world, from Hitler's Reich (though self-proclaimed fascists will contest how truly fascist it was) to Mussolini's Italy. Rather than seek to define a very complex concept, or to categorize what is and isn't fascist, I instead seek to provide insight into a little-known art movement that was fascism's predecessor...

Mental Health Crisis
Kaya Wilkowski, Reporter • May 10, 2022

Suicide is a leading cause of death in the United States with cases rising every year, but what causes people to harm themselves? Suicidal thoughts most commonly stem from depression and anxiety, with around 3.8% of the population affected by depression and 4% suffer from anxiety. With so many people suffering, it should be one of the most urgent topics in today's society, but depression and anxiety...

Sugar is Poisoning Your Brain!
Gabriella Gallardo, Reporter • May 3, 2022

We’ve all got a sweet tooth, some more than others, but do we really know how much sugar is in these yummy treats and how it’s affecting our brains? According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) the average American eats or drinks roughly 156 pounds of sugar a year. That’s 34 teaspoons of sugars a day, which adds up to 500+ calories. In the United States, over the last two centuries,...

Tucson Roadrunners - No Fights and Bad Refs
Marley Gandee May 2, 2022

Our Tucson hockey team, the Tucson Roadrunners, played their second to last game on the 28th of April. They played a playoff-secured team - the San Diego Eagles. The Roadrunners are ranked 8th in the division... out of nine teams. So it's possibly safe to say that they aren't the best. They did however beat a team ranked 7th, in a 6-2 blowout game. Personally, my favorite part of hockey is the fighting....

Utopia UK, not to be confused with the U.S. version on Amazon Prime, follows a wide set of protagonists...
