  • Ask Alex: No one knows what the future holds

    Many months ago, back when I was a student at Los Alamos High School, the column “Ask Alex” came to be. Brainchild of very inquisitive Teen Pulse staff members, it all began as a way to make me find out answers anyone could find with a simple Google search, but I made it my own.
    Simple questions were given ridiculous answers. Ridiculous questions were given even more ridiculous answers. I would have never known how lenient The Los Alamos Monitor is when it comes to censorship, had it not been for my columns.

  • Wolf out on Sunday nights

    Imagine running
    through the woods during a full moon, while a bloodthirsty werewolf chases you down. This obviously can never happen to you, considering werewolves are mythical, but you can watch the TV series “Teen Wolf” if you want to get up close and personal with a werewolf.
    “Teen Wolf,” loosely based on the 1980s movie starring Michael J. Fox, puts a 21st century twist on the classical lycanthropy myths. The show follows Scott McCall (Tyler Posey) who is unexpectedly turned into a werewolf as he searches for the answers to his newfound abilities.  
    On top of dealing with his new problem, Scott has to deal with finding out that the girl he likes comes from a family of werewolf hunters.
