Teen Pulse

  • Debating duo talk their way to victory

    Late January seems to have been an important time period for the Hilltalkers, Los Alamos High School’s award-winning debate team.
    Between Jan. 20-22, the debaters set out for Arizona State University in hopes of conquering a tournament, which featured roughly 68 teams from all over the Southwest.
    Though they competed against some private schools that seemingly had more funding and one-on-one attention from coaches, Hilltalkers Andy Zhao and Horace Zhang were not intimidated and managed to place second in the Public Forum event.

  • Word on the Street 02-19-12

    Teen Pulse staff member and Los Alamos High School senior Ada Ciuca asked LAHS students, “If you could elect anyone for president, who would it be and why?”

  • Doors’ reissue delivers nothing but empty promises

    According to legend, starving artists such as Jimi Hendrix, Jim Morrison and Janis Joplin sold their souls to the devil in exchange for riches and fame.
    Each of these artists died at age 27, at the height of their careers, which adds to the myth.
    The fact that the trio — and other artists like Amy Winehouse and Kurt Cobain — all died at 27, after achieving fame has added to the legend, which has become known as the “27 Club.”
    Morrison was arguably the most controversial of 1960s artists. His band, The Doors, rose to fame in the late 60s and in their short four years together, left a trail of devastation wherever they went.

  • Ask Alex: Ladies’ facial expressions in the hall: What do they mean?

    I should begin by making a few things clear. First, no one can fathom the female mind.
    Second, the confusing ways of the woman do not stop in the hallway.
    Third, everything a woman says or does not say, can and will be misinterpreted. Are you sure you would still like to continue this long venture down an endless trail of nail polish, perfume and all things glitter? Of course you would.
    That want is inescapable. Pubescence in all its complications made sure of that.
    To begin your attempt at understanding girls, you must understand that everything you think you know is wrong.
    Even if it makes sense to everyone and can be proven by complex mathematics, you are incorrect. The pretty girl across the hallway smiled at you. Oh joy of joys.

  • Smoking is more than a health issue

    People have vices and that’s understandable. I respect that because I have vices myself, (hint: they involve a certain intense actor from the movie “300”).
    However, that’s not the topic that will be addressed. Instead, smoking is up for discussion. Most people know that apart from being dangerous, smoking is also disgusting and smelly.
    Granted, this is a free country and people have the right to enjoy a cigarette, but in a fair world, non-smokers would be allowed to enjoy  fresh air and clear lungs.

  • Fashion Maven: Don’t be afraid to show off your socks

    Often overlooked in fashion, socks hide in dressers, are crammed in corners of messy rooms and often pairs of them get separated.
    Yet, they are admittedly an ingenious part of fashion. Of course, they are functional and that’s what most of us see them as.
    Socks can be made into so much more though, and can look insanely cute with outfits for the upcoming spring and summer seasons.
    Before rattling off all of the wonderful fashions that can be created with a lovely pair of socks, it is necessary to establish how not to wear socks.
    You know, just to get everyone on the right track. As a general rule, socks should not be worn with flat sandals, especially Birkenstocks.

  • Los Alamos students March for Life

    Despite the rain and cold temperatures, hundreds of thousands of people flooded the streets of Washington, D.C. Jan. 23 for the 39th Annual “March for Life” walk.
    Each year, Pro-life rallies are held in cities throughout the United States on the anniversary of the Supreme Court’s Roe v. Wade decision, which legalized abortion in the United States on Jan. 22, 1974.
    The March for Life participants’ goal is to have that decision overturned by the court.
    Fourteen Los Alamos high school students and chaperons attended this year’s walk.
