Arctic Monkeys brings peace in tranquility base hotel and casino

Posted on May 14, 2018 by in Uncategorized

After five years,  English rock band, Arctic Monkeys released their newest album named Tranquility  base hotel and casino 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This is the band’s sixth studio release with 10 new songs .  The band goes way back from the early 2000’s as they were part of the garage scene.  Although this is their newest album a lot of fans are backlashing this album as they dial it back to their last album ” AM’ in 2013

In “AM”, there was elements of psychedelic rock, r&b, gospel, and punk. The album has become one of Arctic Monkeys most successful albums to date, leading to receiving British Album of the year in 2014. Although being an English rock band, the band also had a breakthrough in America with “ Do I wanna know ” hitting the Billboard 100.

If ‘ AM’ was highly rated album , why is Tranquility base hotel and casino being criticized?

Well a lot of fans have noticed the different style that was used in the latest album.  According to the Rolling Stones, the band “tried a stylistic change-up that doesn’t quite work.” With that being said,  this new album is filled with pianos and drums  , taking a complete tour as they incorporated more R&B. Although this album is different, it doesn’t mean that it’s a bad album.  Sometimes, artists take a leap of faith to really see what  style really suits what they are trying to convey to their audience.

A Break in the Cycle

 Outer Space has long been a mystery to us, and it has only been recently that we have been able to unlock some of its mysteries. From mind-blowing discoveries such as heliocentricity to finding water on Mars. Thus it is only certain that we improve upon previously thought of misconceptions. Recently, however, we seem to have broken the cycle, or at least Mercury’s Cycle that is.

Mercury, like many planets, orbits the sun in an ellipse that gradually rotates over time. We know this because of the famous physicist Albert Einstein. He opened mankind’s eyes to the universe. More specifically he opened our eyes to the possibility of a connection between Einstein’s law of gravity to the orbits of our planets. Before Einstein, we thought of the universe as featureless and changeless, with time following its own pace as Newton once said. These words, however, would prove to be wrong centuries later as Gravity would prove to affect more than just an apple falling on the ground.

Newton was on the right track, as he connected to earth’s physics to the planets and stars, but he didn’t know how it was all connected. In fact, he famously would refuse to even try to figure it out and would take years later for an Einstein to piece it all together. Gravity, he proved, not only made things go up and down it also made planets go round.

 

  “Albert Einstein, in his theory of special relativity, determined that the laws of physics are the same for all non-accelerating observers, and he showed that the speed of light within a vacuum is the same no matter the speed at which an observer travels.”-Nola Taylor Redd

 

   This theory would come to explain an anomaly to Mercury’s orbit that Newton’s theory just couldn’t explain. A subtly in the orbit, as every couple of years its orbit would match up to calculations based upon Newton’s gravity. It was thus that a tweak was made upon Mercury’s orbit due to Einstein’s brilliance. Now however in recent times Mercury’s orbit is being tweaked for the second time. Now physicist Clifford Will has calculated another effect of Einstein’s general relativity on Mercury’s orbit. The effects, however, are too small of a thing to be noticed in observations so far.

  In short, planets move in elliptical orbits that shift and rotate as each planet in turn orbits around the sun. The rotations have been thought to have been altered by gravity from other planets. And while that is true, according to general relativity, gravity is caused by massive objects warping spacetime (yes, warping spacetime is an actual thing in science), thus Einstein had previously concluded that the sun would certainly big enough to cause a warping through spacetime and thus affect planets and their orbits. This would affect Mercury the most as it is the closest planet to the sun.

 Will hypothesis that this would not only affect how the sun pulls on Mercury, but how other planets pull on Mercury as well and vice versa. Will has stated that the difference is so small that it would take around 2 billion years to even add a degree to Mercury’s orbit. Nevertheless, it is in the nature of science to question what we know and test out our theories. Wills theory is no different, as soon a European and Japanese space mission to Mercury called the BepiColombo will test it out.

Naviance program is introduced to Hollywood

The new college counselor Alyssa Pinedo has introduced a new program called Naviance to the school. Each student has an account through schoology and can access it at any time. It helps her stay in contact with the students and see which colleges the students choose to be interested in. She has been going around English classes demonstrating to the students how Naviance works and what it can do.

 

Personally, I think that this makes the search for colleges easier and is like a portal to all the possible colleges. Based on your PSAT scores, income,interests, and locations, Naviance shows you what colleges seem to be a good fit for you. There are assessments you can take that will match you to colleges that seem to be related to your interests. You can search any college of your interest and look into it to get a feeling of what it is like. It provided information like acceptance rates, financial aid, average SAT scores, ethnicity populations, and the majors offered.

 

This website seems to be a helpful resource, and as a junior I think it is super beneficial and students should take advantage and make good use of it. Ms. Pinedo mentioned that based off of the majority of colleges that the students choose to be interested in, she will have those colleges come and visit and will notify students on schoology of the upcoming college visits. I think bringing Naviance to the school was a very good idea and hopefully it helps most students and makes the process of college applications easier for next year.

Ditch Your New Years Resolution Today

Resolutions are another way to say goals. Setting goals, planning and completing them are an important part of life in order to succeed.

It has only been 17 days and you’re already tired of being committed to your new resolution that you’re supposed to follow all year. Today on Wednesday, January 17 you are allowed to ditch that commitment!

The New Year is a great opportunity to perfect the work you’re doing whether you’re struggling or not, refocus your attention from distractions, and set out on a new path to follow. However, any change from your daily lifestyle takes time and effort to reach and achieve.

Only 9% of people actually go through with the goal they set for themselves and 91% just give up either in the beginning of the year or eventually as the year goes on. People set long-term goals and if you’re tired of it already but still want to continue in order to accomplish that goal then today is the day to take a break from it and use it as an excuse. Instead of choosing on a huge goal or result, simply look for ways to be one percent better every single day.

Ditch those resolutions, relax and stop feeling guilty about wanting to break them. Whatever your reason to break them is, you can do it without feeling guilty on Ditch New Year’s Resolution Day.

Riordan ‘s publicist said she passed away on London staying for a short recording session. Last year The Cranberries released a full length LP “Something Else” full of songs from their catalog stripped down to different renditions. The very first Cranberries album “Everybody Else is Doing it” was released on 1993 then the band went on hiatus in 2003 and returned in 2009. The rest of the band shared their mourning through a statement, “She was an extraordinary talent and we feel very privileged to have been part of her life from 1989 when we started the Cranberries. The world has lost a true artist today.”

 The Sheiks stay undefeated after a victory against Mendez from both the Varsity and JV team. Varsity won with a score of 4-2 and JV with a score of 4-1.

    While others spent their Thanksgiving break with their family, the boys soccer team  practiced non-stop. They even had pre-season game to help them get ready for the season.

    The team has been working hard endlessly, pushing through vacations and late nights to improve their techniques and footwork.“I’ve trained everyday, tried my hardest, try to be a role model for the whole team,” claims Kevin Acevedo,TCA Junior JV Captain.

    The Sheiks have been preparing for official season with constant practices and drills as a means to lead the way to victory.  From running laps to working on footwork, the boys soccer team worked hard to score in their first games of the season.

    The varsity team kicked off the season on Nov. 17 with a tie of 0-0 against Panorama. JV also won, they beat Panorama 2-1. However, on Nov. 27 Varsity came back strong to take the win against Contreras with the final score of 2-0. JV also won with a score 2-0.

Despite their first half of practice without a coach, due to the coach’s busy schedule the Sheiks manage to keep a high head and have positive hopes for future games. “I look forward to winning the league, hopefully, and if we do good enough we could actually take CIF. I believe we have a good team,” said Hugo Garcia, SAS Junior, Varsity captain.

Due to the other teams forfeiting for several games, the Sheiks have not been able to play every game scheduled for this season.  “I am not happy about cancelled games, neither is the rest of the team but some things have to happen. Like the other team did not have enough players ready to play, but we just really want to play games,” said Hugo Garcia.

On Nov. 30, the Sheiks played rival school, Bernstein. Varsity ended with a winning score of 1-0 while JV lost with a score of 2-1.

So far the Sheiks have been undefeated, winning every game that they have played. If they keep it up they will make it to playoffs again.

“My expectations for this team are high. Depending on the players but for us its hopefully winning league and going as far as we can on playoffs.” said Franklin Ayala, Varsity coach.

When attending a football game have you ever taken a moment to appreciate the people dancing and cheering on the players? These are our magnificent cheerleaders and they have been working hard this semester. Rapping up football season and heading on to basketball, cheer is really a sport that does it all.

While there was a competitionon scheduled during December, it got canceled and this is what, “So what actually happened is we have a league that is going on. So we have a league that is starting up on February. So it’s actually becoming a sport and were trying to figure out how everything is going to play out and what we need,” said Coach Miguel. All in all, their schedules seem to be packed as according to the coach in January they will be focusing completely on basketball season. Leaving February for leagues where they will be competing against schools like Bernstein and Marshall.

On the Hollywood High School website cheer has this written there,” You can’t have Sheik Pride without a squad of spirited cheerleaders… “Explosive?” Doesn’t even begin to describe this group.” Cheer seems to be all about teamwork and it seems like it would be as generally the stunts they do require them to all be working together.

When asked about what a typical training regime for them was all about one cheerleader said, “We basically start off by running on the field. Coach tells us to run many laps, and then we start stretching. From then we either stunt or we go over like basic routines,” said Chelsea Cortez, SAS Senior. They work hard and deserve our support. Keep at it Cheer, and good luck at the competition in February.

Grammy Nominations and more

The 2018 Grammy nominations have been announced and many people are pleased with the results and of course there were a couple of flops. Many mainstream artists and underrated artists had the spotlight to be nominated and noticed by a huge audience. New and upcoming artists like SZA, Khalid, Lil Uzi Vert, and Alessia Cera were nominated for best new artist. Nominations for best album went to Childish Gambino, Jay-Z, Lorde, Bruno Mars, and of course Kendrick Lamar. Each artist had a stellar release and each were critically acclaimed albums and many were satisfied with these nominations. Best alternative album went to Gorillaz, Arcade Fire, Father John Misty, The National, and LCD Soundsystem after the band broke up in 2012 they have returned with an incredible album this year.

R&B performances went to Daniel Ceaser, Kehlani, Bruno Mars, SZA, and Ledsi. Best Rap performances went to Migos, Big Sean, Jay-Z, Kendrick Lamar, and Cardi B. Best rap album went to Jay-Z, Kendrick Lamar, Migos, Rapsody, and Tyler the Creator for his fantastic release Flower Boy which many consider his best work. Tyler has recently opened up his own store on Fairfax selling all of his designed clothes and recently his famous music festival in Exposition Park has just passed.

The Grammy nominations have been very impressive this year counting that many people consider every year the nominations are always surrounded by popular and famous artists. Each popular nomination was very diverse genre wise and artist wise. It’s very great to see that the Grammys are being more diverse in their nominations and not missing out on important releases of the year.
