 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.

         In light of the death of lead singer, Chester Bennington, bandmates from Linkin Park planned a tribute concert to honor the friend. The concert took place last Friday on October 27th at the Hollywood Bowl at 10:30 p.m. The concert consisted of almost all of the brilliant songs that the band has put out over the past 20 years. Over the course of the spectacular show, Linkin Park had friends and other bands perform on the stage, big names such as Blink-182, System of a Down, No Doubt (and plenty more) appeared to help honor Bennington. In between songs and guests, videos played of the band with Bennington, reminiscing on the times when he was with the world.

         Without a second thought, the night was emotional, powerful, and completely raw. Over 17,000 occupants went to the show, singing their hearts out to the songs and expressing the love for the lost idol.

On the internet: 5.5 million watched live at home. It goes to show how much of an impact one person can make. Bennington will always be remembered among the legends of the music world, and many will remember this concert with their hearts.


Rest in Peace

Starbucks is getting in the Halloween spirit this October with a new drink for a limited time.

After news came of the limited Unicorn Frappuccino, people went wild for the drink for its color, taste, and tumblr look. So Starbucks thought of another drink to hype everyone up once more. Unlike the vampire frappuccinos of 2015, rumor has it that they are adding a new drink called the Zombie Frappuccino. The drink will be cream-based, and will contain green caramel, apple powder and pink powder. The whipped cream will be pink, and the whole thing will be finished off with a pink drizzle.The drink would be sold from October 28 until October 31. The frappuccino would be drop dead and fit perfectly for a Halloween theme and all the aesthetically pleasing pictures.


P.S If you miss the Unicorn Frappuccino, then do not fear because Starbucks turned it into a permanent drink on a secret menu! Yes, a secret menu, if you download the Starbucks app on your phone, they will give you a list of many other fangtastic drinks that are kept hidden.

Once in a lifetime opportunities don’t appear very often. Especially if you have to wait a couple of years to have it come to your city. Pacific Standard time is finally here. No, it does not mean the actual time.

What it means is that over 50 museums’ will enhold Latin American Art from September 2017 through January 2018. It will vary from modern and contemporary art to that of the ancient world and pre-modern era. The museums will consist of a collaboration effect between art and activism.

Thanks to The Getty, the project known as “Beyond Borders” will shed light onto the injustice against Chicano culture while simultaneously honoring Latino roots. The event will be held throughout museums in the LA County with the sole purpose of raising political awareness for causes that demand change.

The exhibitions will consist of thought provoking photographs, murals, and video art revolving around the concept of the Latin community.   So why not take advantage for the time it is here and check it out.
