  • James Dean’s legend lives on

    “That guy’s got to stop. He’ll see us.” Those were the last words spoken by 1950s actor James Dean, before his Porsche Spyder racecar collided with an oncoming car, killing him instantly. 

    Throughout the years, Dean has acquired a large fan base due to his rebellious persona and carefree life, even though he starred in only three major films, in a professional acting career that lasted only four years. 

  • Etiquette is still important

    In today’s less formal society and the ever-changing ways we communicate with each other, one can often forget that manners and etiquette should still be practiced. 

    Sure, today’s teens may not be as well-trained in etiquette as those raised in the 1950s,  but what I find shocking is that too many adults don’t use the manners they were taught as children.

  • Safety in science class: A wake-up call

    Sometimes the best way to learn about science is  through labs. These scientific experiments conducted during class typically reinforce a lesson that students recently learned. 

    With labs comes safety, and during the first week of school every year, for each science class, students watch videos that teach them the proper precautions they must take to keep them and their classmates safe.

  • Ask Alex: Why is prom a formal event?

    Teenagers are not well known for being formal. They are better known for their artistry on bathroom walls and driving down residential streets at two in the morning with their windows down and the stereo up.
    How is it that this school-sanctioned event causes nearly the entire junior and senior class to don tuxedos and slow dance to “Buy You a Drank?” First let us analyze this annual high school dance.
    Prom, short for “promenade,” is a dance held toward the end of the school year at high schools across the country. Teenagers gather this one night for dancing, talking and wholesome, heavily supervised merriment.

  • Tales of a first-time blood donor

    Some people are under the impression that having blood drawn is a scary thing, as if a 200-year-old vampire was waiting patiently by your side for a taste of that red bodily fluid.
    I accompanied Los Alamos Monitor Features Editor Jennifer Garcia on a recent photo shoot and learned that donating blood wasn’t at all scary, but perhaps even enjoyable.
    After deciding on a whim that I wanted to donate blood, I signed a form that legally allowed the phlebotomists to draw it. I then sat behind a screen while a young lady asked me questions about my health, such as if I had AIDS or any STDs.
    Once I passed the test with flying colors, I was led to a chair with a pump sitting next to it.
