Today marks a significant day for NMA history, as juniors finalize their project and present at Columbia College Hollywood. When becoming a junior in NMA, students are assigned a team and topic that will be graded and counted for three classes that are English, History and Digital Computers. They spend a whole semester creating an animation and gathering evidence to pitch their argument. The judges were not only Hollywood High School teachers but professional animators as well.

NMA teachers teach their students to always find solutions to obstacles they face. For Example, due to the recent fires in Ventura City, the juniors were unable to present at  Colombia College and were told their presentation will be held at school during periods two, three and four. It was a sudden change, but the students were able to adjust.

It is definitely a day that will be memorable for the juniors, considering the problems they did not expect. But congratulations to all NMA juniors that finally reached one of their biggest milestones.

After having tourist walk around Los Angeles without many visuals of the arts that began in Hollywood, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences decided to build one by 2019. Now, more than ever, people have been more invested in the modern cinematic world and how it all began. Based on the information from VOA News, it appears the making of such museum is already put to action.

They say the museum is set to be built on a historic Los Angeles Department store that was built in 1939. The structure of the building is going to include a glass dome that would allow people to view the Hollywood Hills. It will also include a 1,000-seat theater under it. Making this museum will be 27,000-square-meter and cost about $388 million.

Included in the museum will have the Academy’s collection of 80,000 screenplays and 12 million photographs. Many famous films and Oscar winners will showcase collections as well. A few that will be included would be “Casablanca”, “The Ten Commandments”, and “Psycho” by Alfred Hitchcock. Along with film collections, there will be Oscar winners who will donate statuettes to make the public have a film experience. Screenplays and scripts will also be included, much like a page of the “To Kill A Mockingbird” film with annotations by Gregory Peck himself.

Mayor Eric Garcetti believes it will be a great addition to Los Angeles because it will allow people to see the different parts of the film industry all at one, past and present. After 90 years of proposing to build a museum for the film industry, the time has come for everyone to see what really happens behind the scenes and what comes after.

Today is national pickle day which means that every pickle you buy will be 22% off. National pickle day has been celebrated for more than 70 years, every November 14 and this year is no different. Four Lakes Processing Collective, Madison’s premier pickler of local produce, encourages all people living in Dane County to enjoy some pickles. FLPC is organized by Healthy Food For All of Dane County, as a way to support food recovery and waste reduction.

FLPC has pickled hundreds of pounds of local cucumbers, zucchini, beans and other produce within the past couple of months since its launch this summer.

“Americans eat more than five million pounds of pickles every year and the range of pickled products we’re free to enjoy continues to grow,” Joe Mingle, a FLPC organizer, said.

Next semester is the start of a new era

Principal Sanchez announced a few months back that she would no longer be in the position of being principal of HHS. Since then, HHS Hiring Committee members have considered who will be able to take Mrs. Sanchez’s place based upon interviews with select candidates for the position. Within the last month, final decisions were narrowed down with the final say coming from Principal Sanchez herself in an email sent to faculty and staff, addressing the individual.

In the email, she announced that, “the new Hollywood High School Principal is Mr. Edward Colacion, the current principal at Young Oak Kim Academy – a middle school within the Los Angeles Unified School District focusing on science, technology, engineering and mathematics, also known as STEM.” She also mentions, “Mr. Colacion will begin at HHS on January 8th, 2018.” Meaning that coming weeks of the fall semester will allow her to remain with us until Friday, December 15th, which is her last day. The email concludes with, “our sincere gratitude goes to the HHS Hiring Committee members for their time, commitment and involvement in this important process.”

With the prospect of a new principal, students, faculty and staff can expect some changes to arrive once the next semester begins in a new year.
