Alyssa Manson

You may be wondering why we wore orange on March 14th. To begin with, it was meant to honor those affected in Parkland, Florida. At lunch, students looked for the orange banners and wrote their name on them to show they stood in solidarity with the students, staff, and families.

#NeverAgain 10

11256What is #NeverAgain?

On March 14, students around the world held a national walkout at 10 a.m. for 17 minutes, one minute for each victim of the Parkland shooting. Those marching were advocating for stricter gun-control laws and more mental health resources for treating troubled peers.

Although students at Stacey weren’t allowed to walk-out, they still were allowed to show their respect and support towards the #NeverAgain movement.

Since the Westminster School District didn’t allow the walkout, at Stacey Middle School, leadership students came up with a better plan. More…

A pedestrian bridge was under construction to connect Florida International University and a neighborhood that was home to around 4,000 of their students after someone died trying to cross the street.

Rescuers worked long days and hours to extract all of the victims. “I believe that is the final count,” Miami-Dade County Police Director Juan Perez said on Saturday. “This ends with a tragedy of six. … We are pretty confident that no one is left.” Rescuers took a break on  Saturday to pay tribute to the victims.

A police motorcade escorted the remains of five victims to the medical examiner’s office. A sixth person shortly died at the hospital. More…

Chances are, you can’t even imagine being that forlorn. Well, one couple was and their plan for a better life was sunk.

Nikki Walsh, 24, and her boyfriend Tanner Broadwell, 26, decided about a year ago that they were tired of working. More…

Can we all agree that this year’s Super Bowl was great? With this year being the Patriots 10th Super Bowl, a lot of people thought they would take home their 6th Super Bowl win, but the Eagles were in the lead the whole game except for the 3rd quarter.

The first quarter was 9-3 Eagles in the lead, the second quarter was great and the Eagles were still in the lead 22-12.

Then came the halftime show. The songs were great, Justin Timberlake sang a mashup of songs such as “Filthy”, “Rock Your Body”,”Senorita”,”SexyBack”, “My Love”, “Cry Me a River”, “Suit & Tie”, “Until the End of Time”, “I Would Die 4 U”, “Mirrors”, and “Can’t Stop the Feeling!” During the performance, Timberlake went up into the stands and a kid took out his phone to take a selfie with the star, but what was he doing on his phone for so long? Well, the question of “how long did it take him to open the camera?” caused an outbreak of memes. More…

Have you listened to any Melanie Martinez songs? Yes? No? If you have, however, you know how original, creative, intelligent, witty, and different she is. Her music is very unique. In her one and only album Crybaby, she sings metaphorically through songs about love, murder, and being crazy or insane.

Recently, her former friend, Timothy Heller, posted some unbelievable things about Melanie, accusing her of assault. Melanie later denied the accusations. Fans exploded. Some sticking with Melanie, and some moving to Timothy´s side.

There were horrible videos uploaded to YouTube of people burning and throwing out their Crybaby merchandise. With some saying ¨In this house, we don´t support assaulters¨ as they burned their Crybaby items. More…

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.
