Work. Sports. Mental health. All of these things should be considered by teachers as they welcome their students into the classroom.

A life without school. Many people honestly can’t fathom a future without it. For goodness sake, we mold children from the age of five at minimum to go to a place more than they go to our their own homes and follow the same routine for 12 years. However, there comes a time where we learn our hoop-...

Imagine being able to see the Internal Combustion Engine come to life as the pistons move up and down, turning the crankshaft and watching the camshaft turn as it opens and closes valves at the exact time.

Everyone is entitled to an opinion. A close-minded individual can, of course, voice their opinions and be respected for it. The problem with this is that these certain individuals expect respect when they have never shown any. "Treat people the way you want to be treated" is a phrase not everybody...

By doing so, he reduced an anthem, meant to unify the American people, to a political stunt. “President Trump and I will not dignify any event that disrespects our soldiers,...

The blaring sounds of your 6:00 a.m. alarm goes off, your first reaction is to hit snooze.
