Lilyana Summerton arrived at Hollywood High School from Australia for her junior year and became a reporter for The Crimson Chronicle.

From the start she stood out from the rest of the journalism staff. She became good friends with everyone and had the impression of a hard worker and free-spirit. She picked up the curriculum and the flow pretty fast.

She shared many pieces in the newspaper such as 90’s Fashion, Man On The Street, and a Concert Calendar. Overall, Lilyana has made close friends and has become a valuable member of our journalism staff. We will all miss her and we hope for the best for her continuation of writing in Australia.

 

Observing the Never Ending Room

Los Angeles is known for the many activities there are in the city, and one of those fun activities is the free art exhibitions at places like LACMA and the Broad. Last year, nobody could get enough of the Rain Room at LACMA, but this year, people are raving about the new room at the Broad. The exhibition includes six rooms as well as more than 60 paintings, sculptures and works on paper from the 87-year-old-artist, but the most famous one at the moment is the piece created by Yayoi Kusama called Infinity Mirrored Room.  The Infinity Mirrored Room is a mirror-lined chamber housing a dazzling and seemingly endless LED light display.

 

Along with Infinity Mirrored Room, you’ll also encounter Love Forever, 1966/1994, a hexagonal flashing chamber that viewers can look into; Dots Obsession — Love Transformed into Dots, 2009, a domed mirror room with inflatables suspended from the ceiling; Aftermath of Obliteration of Eternity, 2009, a starfield-like installation and more.

 

This experiential artwork has extremely limited capacity, accommodating one visitor at a time for about a minute, and requires a separate free timed same-day reservation which ticket holders are able to reserve, pending availability, after arrival at the museum at a kiosk in the center of the lobby. Time in the Infinity Mirrored Room can’t be reserved in advance of your visit. The installation will be on view through October 2017.

The Celebration of Dr. Martin Luther King was on Jan. 16. Los Angeles celebrated with an annual Kingdom Day Parade. Thousands arrived to continue and spread the message that Dr. King fought for.

The theme of the parade was “Now More Than Ever, We Must Work Together.” With the racism, violence, and more issues involved today, everyone must be kind to one another and come as one.

Not only did people arrive and celebrate for Dr. King’s birthday, but to spread messages about the world today. Such as, how President Obama has helped many individuals across the country and how we must all be in peace. Many also sought opportunities to advertise their companies/businesses.

Hollywood Highschool’s Spirit Squad and JROTC were invited to march in the parade. In the near end of the parade, all performed and were evaluated by a judge.

32nd annual Kingdom Day Parade was eventful and let’s hope for an amazing 33rd next year.

The end of November is approaching and for most students, this is good

news because they are able to enjoy their Thanksgiving week away from school.


However, for seniors, this is not good news considering that college app
lication are due in less than three weeks. College application deadlines for UC’s and Cal States are due at the end of this month, on November 30th, and

seniors are struggling to finish their college apps.

The application processes are challenging to complete and require lots of time, and that is why the College Center is now offering seniors help.For the next two weeks, the College Center will be open everyday after school from 3:00-5:00 pm to help seniors with theirs college apps. Seniors will have a chance to ask questions, receive help from counselors and staff, and receive a guiding hand from the College Center.

If you’re a senior and in need of application assistance, you are welcome to come. The College Center is open to everyone and all senior s are encouraged to go and take this great opportunity.

 

What it means now that Trump is President

Congratulations America, you have chosen to elect Donald Trump rather than the first female president of the United States.

Great, no big deal, so what?

At the same time as Trump supporters celebrate the victory of their misogynist leader, millions of children are in their room putting together a backup plan with their parents. This backup plan consists of only one thing and that is what to do if one day these children come home to an empty house. What will these children do when one day “papi y mami” don’t come home? The idea that 12 year olds, 5 year olds, even younger, might have to prepare and worry about this is brutally sickening. Imagine your younger sibling, niece, nephew, having to go through this. But this is what America has elected.

Today husbands and wives look at each other and realize that this country has taken a step backwards. The LGBTQ community is wondering how it is possible to elect a candidate and a running mate that would rather take money from HIV funds and implement them into “conversion therapies.” Couples once again live in fear of being governed by a party that has done nothing but root for the bills, laws, and orders that would punish them for loving. But America elected to resurrect this hatred toward gays, lesbians, bisexuals, and transgenders.

Tonight the same people who chanted, “We hate Muslims, we hate blacks, we want our great country back,” at a rally in Manhattan, are the same people who will now believe that they are in the right. Muslim women now wear (if at all) their Hijab in fear of violence and oppression. The same man who called Mexicans racists, mocked the disabled, and plans to ban Muslims is now our president. This country has elected the man who fears the demographic shift in America

Our country will now be led by a man who has been accused of sexual assault, a man who called a woman a pig, a man who encourages other men to go ahead and “grab them by the pussy.” For the next four years the face of our country will be Donald Trump. At the same time as he claims to respect women more than anyone, he continues to demean women by calling them, nasty, “not his type,” and openly admitting an attraction to his own daughter.

The issue, however, is not all about Donald Trump. The problem is with those who chose to follow him, encourage, and support him. These people will make the “others” feel unworthy, dirty, and try to demean us as much as they can. The problem is that minorities will begin to believe they are ugly and unworthy.

If you are a woman, you are beautiful. If you are queer, you are loved. If you are Muslim, you are fearless. If you are Latino or Black, you are not alone. I am here, and we may no longer be with her, but we are with each other.

 

Cheers first competition as an official sport

With the Fall Pep Rally closing in that means cheer leaders are locking in.

With competition coming close for the Sheik cheerleaders this means they have to be preparing for a big competition coming soon. Their first competition will be held on Dec 3 at Six Flags Magic Mountain. The competition is called Jam and will have many other schools attending.

The Cheer girls will give us a sneak peak of their performance for their competition in Jam this upcoming pep rally on Nov 18. The girls have been preparing for this competition for a good amount of time now and are hoping to get first place like they have gotten in the past.

The park will be closed off for the cheerleaders and will be open just for the cheer teams that are coming to participate. The Sheiks had a rough start to the this semester they were unable to cheer for the first 2 football games but did come back to start cheering until  the 3rd game.

They also had no practice the whole summer which also meant that they did not get the practice they needed to start the season like they always had started in the years before.

They were unable to cheer or practice because they did not have a coach but luckily now they have a coach. With competition nearing the Sheiks will be getting ready to try to win a first place title. Knowing that this is their first year as an official sport it means much more.hwood-cheer

The T.V. series “Supergirl” is a must see for all superhero fans. “Supergirl” is science-fiction mixed with a tad of drama and action. It revolves around a young female alien, named Kara. She took refuge on Earth, like her cousin Superman from her home planet Krypton. She was trapped in the Phantom Zone for many years and she did not age. However, by the time she escaped and made it to Earth, her cousin Superman became a hero and was older than her. So she went into hiding.

In the show, we watch as she struggles to juggle being a superhero while maintaining her job at Catco, a media conglomerate founded by Cat Grant. Along with the endless struggles, she also deals with many psychological issues like self-doubt, reputation amongst everyone, the loss of her family. Not only is her “normal” life a struggle, but the aliens she faces are stronger and unexpected.

Not only are you able to watch Supergirl in action, you also get to watch and see how other heroes in the DC comics fit in the whole DC universe, like Martian Manhunter, Superman, and Red Tornado. The show “Supergirl” will help you understand bits and parts on the all famous Justice League.

Powderpuff 2016 is canceled

Posted on June 2, 2016 by in Uncategorized

Crimson Chronicle reporter: Angeline Angulo

Powderpuff 2016 has been canceled. There have been rumors all week about the situation. Unfortunately, the rumors are true.
Powderpuff 2016 has been canceled this year due to an unknown incident. Apparently, there was an issue among a group of students that cause administration to cancel the whole event 4 days before the event.
Many people are upset about this, especially the seniors. They believe it is unfair that they had to pay the consequences for the behavior of other individuals.
SAS Senior, Emily Arreola, said, “It obviously sucks that powderpuff was canceled because I put so much of my time and effort into practice and paying the $55 fee. I was looking forward to it the most because I couldn’t play last year. I’m really disappointed.”
The juniors were very upset as well. NMA Junior Samantha Henriquez said, “I’ve been looking forward to this game since freshman year. This really sucks.”
The cancellation caught everyone by surprise, even the Leadership class. The situation happened too quickly and a compromise between the Leadership class and administration was not able to be met.
Money went to waste. People’s time went to waste. And people expectation were not met on any circumstances. Whatever the situation was that canceled this year’s well-expected powderpuff game, must of been tough.
The juniors next year have a new opportunity to play.
