    Teen Pulse staff writer Katherine Wang asked students, “If you could run for county councilor what would you change?”

  • Unicycling gaining popularity at LAHS

     

    If you have ever looked at those able to balance on just one wheel with envy, then you are not alone. Maxwell Hermann recently started a unicycling club at Los Alamos High School. 

    Hermann’s inspiration for unicycling came from watching Max Schulze, the 2012 world champion unicyclist who is from Los Alamos and Emily Pittman, a recent LAHS graduate and unicyclist, perform a unicycling routine in a pep rally at LAHS, last year. This summer Hermann’s boss convinced him to buy a unicycle and since then he has been riding with Max Schulze nearly every day. 

    In fact, Hermann is a world championship hopeful; “Two years from now in Spain there is the Unicycling World Championships and I’m hoping to qualify in the beginners’ category,” he said.

  • Fall Installments: What to expect this season

     

    Numb fingertips and pink cheeks mark the arrival of colder months spent trying to stay warm.

    Any “fashionista,” however, will tell you that autumn brings more than just chilly weather; it brings new formulas to stay stylish during the most trying season. 

    Let’s take a look at what to expect.

  • Opinion: American ignorance runs rampant despite technology

     

    Recently, I watched a news segment in which a reporter asked random United States citizens what they thought of the Ebola crisis in Africa. 

    Astounded, I listened to citizen after citizen either ask the reporter what Ebola is, say they thought it was great, obviously clueless about the disease, or stare blankly off into space.

    While this does not represent the majority of Americans it shows that there are a striking number of people in this country who don’t know anything about what is happening in this world beyond the screens of their smartphones. The outcome of these types of interviews is nothing new, but it should make one’s blood boil every time one is released.

     When I think about these ignorant people voting and that their vote can affect my future, I am frightened for my generation.

  • A terrible, horrible, no good, very bad movie

    Based on the children’s book by Judith Viorst, “Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day” follows 11-year-old Alexander (Ed Oxenbould) who experiences the worst day of his young life.  
    He finds gum in his hair, accidentally sets the science lab on fire, angers the girl he has a crush on and finally his parents are late picking him up from school. Alexander is left feeling very sorry for himself.  In contrast, everything is going wonderfully for the rest of his family which makes Alexander want the worst for them.  
    On his birthday the next day, Alexander makes a birthday wish that his family would have the most horrible, terrible day. To his surprise Alexander’s father (Steve Carell), mother (Jennifer Garner), brother (Dylan Minnette) and sister (Kerris Dorsey) do experience the worst day of their lives.  Alexander begins feeling remorseful and decides he must try to turn their worst day into the best day for everyone.
    While having great potential to be hilarious, this movie lacks creativity and is cliché. The father having a bad job interview, the brother failing his driver’s test, the sister getting sick before her play debut are all boring plot scenarios director Rob Lieber wrote.
