World Wide Web (of conspiracies)

International, News

On March 12, 2019 the day I started writing this article, the World Wide Web turned 30 years old. The World Wide Web was created by Tim-Berners Lee who is a British computer scientist.

Before the World Wide Web came out, people had been sending emails, files, and ran message boards. When the World Wide Web came out, navigating through information became easier for everyone. People could now use web browsers, webpages, and hyperlinks to find information faster. In the early days of the internet, shopping became popular. Amazon, which used to be a bookstore online, became the source of online shopping, which closed down many brick and mortar stores. Netflix, which was the ultimate downfall of Blockbuster, redefined how people watched tv and movies. Netflix is the top streaming service in 2019. Reddit, which is another popular place on the internet is a place where people could start communities and find people who have similar interests. Youtube, which is a website where you can post videos is very popular website. Social media like Instagram, facebook, Snapchat, Twitter, myspace, and other websites are places where you could socialize with people around the world. The internet has changed in many years and will keep changing until a meteor destroys the planet and the internet goes extinct like the dinosaurs.

ACT & CSI

Feature, In the Classroom

There were even human brains!

Hey guys! It’s Keith. I wanted to share some things that have been happening around ACH. I interviewed Sarah Nelson last week, who said that she studies for the ACT for about 1 hour a week. She wants to tell everyone that they should study for the ACT! Who needs sleep? Just study! I also spoke to some freshman who visited the crime lab. Jacob thought that the crime lab wasn’t entertaining so it didn’t catch his interest. Brayden thought that the crime lab was a lot of fun and super interesting. I remember when I went last year; I thought it was a cool experience too. Student get to see real-life human eyeballs and people’s hands in jars. There were even human brains! They showed us the different types of drugs and the rooms where the CSI teams are stationed. Our guides explained what it’s like to work as a crime scene investigator. Overall, it was a cool experience for me when I visited. I could see how it’s not everybody’s cup of tea though. Also, don’t forget to study for your ACT, it could help you in the future! It’ll make Sarah happy!
