Logan Paul is facing the fallout after posting a video showing the body of an apparent suicide victim in Japan and is facing a flood of criticism after filming footage of the Japanese forest that has become known for suicides. During their walk around the forest, they found a body hanging from a tree that is a victim of an apparent suicide. He posted the footage online of the body with the face blurred and received an instant backlash. Youtube has cracked down on the disturbing content and says Wednesday it is removing popular American vlogger Logan Paul from its Google Preferred platform and putting future projects with him on hold, due to a violation of policies.

“In light of recent events, we have decided to remove Logan Paul’s channels from Google Preferred. Additionally, we will not feature Logan in season 4 of ‘Foursome’ and his new series ‘Originals’ are on hold,” Alphabet Inc. said in a statement about the video. Some say Paul should be banned from Youtube. Aaron Paul (no relation) tweeted “How dare you! You disgust me. I can’t believe so many young people look up to you.” More…

Jack Carson made it back to school with many not too far behind him. A group behind him running as fast as they could to complete their 3-mile run. “Good job,” Jack said out of breath and sweaty, as the rest finished up. This is a scenario that usually happens during Mr.Yohn’s running club.

Running Club consists of running from 3-5 miles throughout the school year. Girls and boys can both join Running Club as long as they don’t mind running.

To be part of Running Club you just have to ask Mr. Yohn for the waiver and join before it gets too late. Since Running Club started on the 10th, if you’re going to join do it as soon as possible. More…

Girls, have you ever been really insecure about your body and felt worthless? If you didn’t say yes, you’re probably lying to yourself… Not that I blame you, but every girl has been there, and some still are– especially teenagers, like myself. It’s high time we address this issue head-on. We need to feel comfortable and proud of who we are!

I know it’s hard looking at other pretty, thin, stylish girls and being envious of them. Here’s a little secret, though: She feels the same way you do.

According to mirror-mirror.org, “Over 50% of 9 and 10-year-old girls feel better about themselves if they are on a diet.” I’ll bet that some of those girls are starving themselves to get thinner, which is decreasing their nutrient intake. See what I’m saying, being insecure can be fatal! Even in my favorite TV show, Glee, we see a girl in glee club faint during a performance because she was starving herself. More…

Common Flu, More Like Deadly Viruses Reply

Kevin Luu

The flu also called influenza, has been a common disease since the 1918 “Spanish flu” pandemic, the 1957 “Asian flu”, and in 1968 “Hong Kong flu”. All of these were tragic, especially the Spanish flu. The European Scientific Working group of Influenza states that “Of all pandemics, the one that began in 1918 is generally regarded as the most deadly disease event in human history.

At least 40 million and likely closer to 100 million deaths worldwide have been attributed to the virus, most of them occurring in the 16-week period between September and December 1918.”

So, many were dying because of the flu between the 1900’s and the 1970’s, but what are the symptoms of the flu now and how do people treat it? More…

Equality: It’s the foundation of America and arguably the most important virtue in the world. Whether it is gay rights, religious freedom, race, or even polygamy, we’ll fight for it with everything in us. Lately, there’s been an uproar from the general public concerning the treatment and senseless killing of Muslims, LGBT people, and people of color.

Some teachers, such as Ms. Walters and Mrs. Redmond, are showing their American pride by taping Hate Has No Home Here posters on their walls.  Poster or no, all of Stacey’s teachers want their students to feel safe in their classrooms.

Ms. Walters says, “No one should ever feel that being different makes them less than anyone else. We are all different in so many ways. Those who think it is ok to target a student for abuse due to any aspect of who they are, are just wrong.” More…

Are Video Games Beneficial? 2

More than 1.2 billion people play video games every day. Most people and parents assume that this is the cause of many mental and physical problems. However, some say that when problems arise, it is in our human nature to blame something or someone else, and video games have always been an easy target. Of course, there is no benefit to playing ten hours of video games a day. But do video games really affect our education, make us more violent, or affect our health?

Research actually shows video games are beneficial. For one thing, they can slow down aging. Males, females, young adults, and adults all have one thing in common; they all age. While getting older has its perks, there are also some natural problems that come as well. There’s a reason why you see senior citizens driving at 25 miles per hour even though the speed limit is 45.   More…

The “No Surgery for Smokers or the Obese” Policy 2

A controversy has stirred up in the United Kingdom (UK) about a “no surgery for smokers or the obese” policy. The clinical commissioning group (CCG) in Hertfordshire, England, and National Health Service recently made this controversial claim with the statement, “No surgery will be performed to patients who smoke or are obese until they improve their health. Exceptional clinical circumstances will be taken into account on a case-by-case basis.”

This controversy has been around since 2011, but the topic has recently been brought back up as the percentage of smokers, and the obese has drastically increased. Originally, the argumentative statement stirred up to prevent humans from purposely harming their own health, as smoking and obesity is an intentional act done by humans to damage their health, not a natural cause. In the UK, the government reported that 63% of adults in the country are overweight and 17% are smokers as of 2017. Previous records display that 27% of the United Kingdom population was obese in 2015 and 16% were smokers. More…

Sleep is an important factor of students’ everyday routine. Sleep refreshes your brain and body for the next day. Adolescents at ages ranging from 10-14 need about nine to ten hours of sleep every night. However, that consistency tends to change as school approaches.

As teenagers grow, they generally start to become naturally short on sleep; as homework in school piles up, the amount of sleep students get can drastically change from the amount they should have every night.

The amount of sleep adolescents get every night ranges from seven hours to five hours. That’s a two to a five-hour difference. For adolescents at ages ten through fourteen, less than nine hours of sleep can affect their performance in school and out of school activities. More…

Be Cautious of Construction 5


Avalyn Walton

All of the students at Stacey Middle School have known about the construction for quite some time. However, not all of them know the hazards of construction. There are protocols that the construction workers have to follow to ensure everyone’s safety, but have the workers at Stacey been following them?

The workers at Stacey Middle School are supposed to water the dirt every day to make sure it doesn’t blow up and away. Unfortunately, they haven’t always been doing that. They’ve been forgetting to water the dirt every day. This could be a potential hazard, especially when you take into consideration how windy it’s been lately.

Some dirt can blow up and onto the Stacey Middle School campus, especially around the P.E. area. So, students of Stacey Middle School, be careful when you’re doing P.E., especially to those with asthma, try not go too heavy on the exercise. Stay safe Stacey Middle School students.
