    He hurried down the street, his wooden shoes clacking anxiously against the Parisian cobblestones. Anonymity was key if he was to survive this mission. Trying hard to be as unrecognizable as possible, he jammed a tweed cap onto his head and brushed his blond bangs into his eyes, shielding his face f...

    Vivian Maier did not think of herself as a photographer — she described herself as “sort of a spy.” Maier’s photographs offer a rare glimpse into 1950s urban America. She sheds light on social and political issues, of which she was very aware, by photographing workers, the disabled, but sh...

    Your hair was an unidentifiable shade of red, somewhere between a neon orange, like the traffic cones set up for football practice that you liked to topple while running around like a madwoman, and a dark burgundy, like the couch at your Aunt Sally’s that you swore smelled like dead cat. That mess...

    The sound of crashing metal fills my ears. Strike for strike, hit for hit, my soldiers and the enemy exchange blows, neither wavering, neither stopping. Sword meets sword, spear meets spear, arrow meets body. All around me, bodies thud to the ground, the Camelot red mixing with the enemy’s black i...

    A mysterious cloaked figure hurries down the street, his feet clacking loudly against the cobblestones in the silent night. His dark cloak billows behind him and his hood is drawn up, shielding his face from the occasional light of a late tavern or the candles of drunk men, swaying in the windless a...

    Wow. For about half an hour, that was the only word that went through my brain. The writing was exceptional; the story was moving. The metaphor of the toy soldiers was extremely emotional. “And my life began when the apples in the basket had already gone rotten,” wrote Jacky Asura in “Pl...

    Homework is an omnipresent part of high school life. It is met with groans and frustration by most, but it is the most important piece of work given to high school students. Homework helps students review concepts taught in class, and at a time when stress to get into college is high, homework can b...

    Elizabeth Francis Gordon. I savored the taste of the name. In all honesty, it didn’t sound too bad, but I still preferred my given name. Not that I’d tell Richard that. He’d become the Ice Monster again. Thankfully, I would not be marrying Richard for at least a year. My father wouldn’t appr...

    “Take Me Home”? More like Throw Me Out. The second album by popular Brit­ish boy band, One Direction, was met with much anticipation from screaming teenage girls. Sadly, it does not meet the hype. It doesn't live up to “Up All Night.” “Take Me Home” is more mechanical. The rhythm ...

    Worn feet tread worn paths in a worn city. Everywhere, suffering is evident. Gaunt faces, thin limbs, emancipated bodies. Some cannot stand. Most cannot walk. This is a place where hope is a dream and dreams are nonexistent. The people wear little more than rags, their faces and hands caked with...

    “An educated lady must always hold her head high, have good posture, and stick her little finger out while sipping–sipping mind you, not slurping–her tea. You, my dear Elizabeth Francis Parker, are not an educated lady, nor will you ever be, unless you stop mingling with those colored workers....

    Close-cropped blond hair, pale blue eyes. Sixteen years old. Prone to mental breakdowns when confronted with pigs, islands, fire, or sticks. That's what my school record said. That I was mentally unstable. That I lost it whenever I saw fire or pigs. Simon Peter Goldstein. Nicholas Edward...

    Castro, Mugabe, Chavez– countless oppressive dictators rule countless submissive countries. In reality, the power of people is much greater than the power of a handful of corrupt bureaucrats, but the government officials have one effective tool: intimidation. “The only thing we have to fear is f...

    The University of Southern California Trojans football team was synonymous with victory. The football players themselves were akin to gods. Everyone expected this season to be an easy ride for the Trojans. So what happened? The Trojans just came out of a two year bowl ban, but they swept their firs...

    Countless oppressive dictators rule countless submissive countries. Hu Jintao, however, does not. He rules Tibet. Tibet has not been silenced by China, but protests violently. Tibet should be granted its independence from China. During the 1959 Tibetan uprising, the Dalai Lama, the leader of Tibet...

    I rule the Earth for three months of the year Tiny– I get stuck to the soles of shoes. See me? Oh yes! But me– one cannot hear. What am I? Good question. Here are two clues: Lightly falling, I quietly cover The earthy brown mud and sharp spikes of green Silently deciding, as I hover Be...

    I sit down in that field, the field of poppies, the field of death. I sink to my knees in front of the two rough gray gravestones. It has now been fifteen years since one of them died, eighteen for the other. I suppose I’m a happy man now, with a small family: a wife and a healthy baby girl. We n...
