How is climate change affecting the bees?

There has recently been a huge production of articles all over the web about animals being hurt by climate change. Animals, however, are not the only victims of the rapidly changing climate, insects are also being affected, especially one very important insect in particular: Bees. Even without climate change, bees have a huge list of problems ranging from children stomping their brains out, to parasites killing huge populations of them. As if the bees didn’t have enough problems already, climate change is now affecting the bees more than ever. One major problem is the bees hibernation schedule. When bees are […]

Review of Supreme Spring Summer 2020

With Supreme announcing its next upcoming season Spring Summer 2020 we have a lot to be looking forward to. As of right now we don’t have much to review because they have yet to release the full preview but they did provide us die hard supreme fans and resellers with a teaser. In the teaser photo we can see what seems to be an all over print hoodie displaying all kinds of dollar bills on fire. On top of that hoodie the model is spotted sporting a tan denim jacket with the famous supreme “arc” logo spelt out by the […]

Is School Worth It – English

“I hate writing!” That’s a phrase spoken by many, if not most students in high school. Writing anything from essays to poems can seem like a boring, laborious task brought on by teachers, but unlike History Classes, English is possibly the most important class you will take in elementary, middle, and high school. Communication will be the key to living a life you truly want. Through reading and writing, you will be able to expand upon your vocabulary and conversation skills. How long can you talk about sports, food, your day, etc. without getting bored? With the infinite number of […]

What is happening to the Arctic?

The place that was once known for its ice-covered land and its beautifully crafted glaciers is now melting away faster than we ever imagined. The Arctic is always covered in ice year-round, but when the winter season hits, it gets a temporary ice plain that covers its shores and stretches far out into the sea. (3)According to the National Snow and Ice Data Center, that temporary ice is dying, becoming smaller and smaller each year, leaving animals short of their much-needed hunting and resting grounds. With the sea ice melting more each year some people wonder how much longer the […]

MLK Celebration: What Happened? – Opinion

It has been a little over a week since we last experienced the advisory presentations regarding Martin Luther King, but the news is still smoking hot. It was apparent to all students that there would be no assembly and when the RamPage sent out a survey it showed that 68.8% of students who responded would much rather see an assembly than sit through and interact with another advisory project.  Ms. Reed, our activity director, has since told me (the Chief Editor of the RamPage) that there in fact will be a national speaker by the name of Mike Smith. Mike […]

The Stories People Tell

This is a collection of poems written by students in Ms. Anderson’s English class. The stories tell us of people’s lives and what the average person may not know about them. You can see that this is told from students of different backgrounds but who came together to get their stories out. We are proud to show these well deserving stories to a broader audience.  Please notice that some poems are written by two or three students and how they compare, how they are different and how they come together.  If you wish to have your own artwork, stories, poems […]

Teenagers Best Friend?

Pets are a vital part of our social life. Whether it is a large animal such as a donkey, pig or even some cases a cow to the smallest known animals like hamsters, rats or a goldfish, they are our loving, caring, non-human companions. This is why picking one presents a very life changing decision for you.  Are you a person who likes the company of pets with a contained environment like fish, reptiles or hamsters. How about something small enough for you to hold close to you like a classic tabby cat and the goofy looking boston terriers. How […]

Is School Worth It – History

Examples of history repeating itself: Lincoln and Kennedy assassinations, 1929 and 2007 economic crash, the constant school shootings, racial descrimination, conflicts with Russia, impeachment. History constantly repeats itself, so why are we still taught it in the way we are? According to Beto O’Rourke, there have been at least 391 shootings this past year; more than one a day sometimes! Columbine happened 20 years ago, but we continuously lack the competence to learn from our mistakes.  In U.S. History, World History, all the histories, we take notes, make posters, and present to the class nothing but useless bullshit. Since the […]

The Feelings/Emotions of Animals

Some people say animals have feelings, others say they don’t. Scientists around the world have done many studies attempting to learn whether or not animals have emotions, and if they do, how in depth are they? Scientists came to the conclusion that a variety of animals’ emotions are “Survival Circuits,” which are basic instincts that define animal reactions, similar to fear and hunger. They concluded, that animals have no emotions just from that simple idea. As time progressed however, people learned more about how animals’ minds work, and doubts became common.  Scientists began to think animals only feel what their […]
