Why Ferguson Matters

Why Ferguson Matters

We live in a sheltered bubble in Concord. Like really, really sheltered. Our police log is filled with hysterical people complaining about a troublesome raccoon or their neighbor’s poor parking skills. For most of us, a crisis would be not getting into our dream school. A frustrating day might include not finding good parking in...

Let’s Talk About Feminism

In recent weeks, CC seems to have been taken over by debates on feminism, and personally, I’m very okay with it.  In only a few short years, I’ve gone from being relatively ambivalent about the issue to taking a hardline stance.  This evolution mirrors that of many girls my age, and I think I...

Everything You Ever Needed to Know About Mindfulness

I’ve been doing some more digging into mindfulness, since my last article generated a fair amount of controversy about the topic.  I had the chance to sit down with Nurse DeBruzzi, mindfulness expert Pam Ressler, and social studies teacher Mr. Hoblitzelle, who all added their unique perspective on the program.  Mrs. DeBruzzi mainly emphasized that...

Taylor Swift’s Latest Album Stuns

After years of trying to resist the infectious pop/country ballads of America’s biggest musical superstar, I have given in.  Taylor Swift is actually pretty darn good.  And yes, her latest album, 1989, which was released late last night, is pure pop, a sugar rush transmitted through your earbuds.  And it’s really, really catchy. Each...

88.3 FM: Radio by Students for Students

Up until a few days ago, the main draw of WiQH (found on 88.3 FM),CC’s radio station, had been the inexpensive sodas sold there.  I hadn’t had the opportunity to look around the place, a garage refurbished into classroom, until last Wednesday.  Station Publicity Director, Gillian Pasley ’16, met me by the station’s two fully equipped...

Mindfulness Assembly Raises Eyebrows

I’ll be straightforward with you.  I don’t understand mindfulness.  I don’t get what it is or more importantly, why we need it.

It’s Not All About That Bass

It’s Not All About That Bass

It’s a typical car ride in the Wong household, meaning that I’m screaming along to pop songs at the top of my lungs and my sister is videotaping me – no doubt for later blackmail material.  For probably the thousandth time, Meghan Trainor’s new hit, “All About That Bass”, comes on.  But this time,...
