New ‘Dunkirk’ trailer including teen heart throb Harry Styles

New 'Dunkirk' trailer including teen heart throb Harry Styles

Chronicle Reporter

New film named Dunkirk has officially announced it will be released Summer of 2017.  Directed by Christopher Nolan, the story takes place in World War 2 in the Dunkirk Evacuation.  The Dunkirk Evacuation was the evacuation of allied soldiers from the British Empire, Belgium, and France surrounded by the German army on the beaches of Dunkirk.

This film has been getting much attention for reasons not being related to the historical background but because of the familiar face in the new trailer that was released.  One Direction’s Harry Styles.

Having such a famous person on a film can have its pros and cons. Pro: the box office will sky rocket making tons of money because teenage girls who love a band member will want to see Harry Styles in a different environment and see one of his other many talents, besides singing.

Con: Many people will be watching the film only because of him, and the film may not get the recognition it deserves. The portrayal of events that actually took place in history will not be recognized so greatly as it should be because teenage girls will be focused on how ‘cute’ or how ‘hot’ Harry Styles will look in combat clothes.

This will be an environment that he’s never been seen in before. Hopefully he will convince viewers that he cannot only rock the stage and sing but can also act and entertain, making teenager fangirls forget he’s known for being in a boyband and actually intrigue them into the movie. Hopefully teens and people of all ages will be entertained as well as learn history from it.

Netflix: watch wherever, whenever with no internet needed

Netflix announces you can download and stream anything you’d like so you can view on the go not having to use wifi. This app is no stranger to the internet entertainment world and has gained much popularity over the years. Almost everyone uses it to stream their favorite TV shows, movies and even Netflix originals that can only be watched if one has a Netflix account.

Binge watching over weekends when you have nothing else to do, while eating popcorn and ice cream in your bed seems to be today’s way of “chillin” to many adolescents. If you didn’t think Netflix could get any better, well it did. Whether you are in “airplane mode, road trip mode, stuck-in-the-subway-for-20-minutes mode. You’re favorite stories are now available for download anytime.” stated Netflix’s official twitter.

Now people can watch whatever they’d like with no internet needed, so if you get lost in the middle of no where and don’t have any way to call for help because you’re signal is horrible, at least you can watch Netflix until someone else goes by to help you out. If you take three different metros to get home you can watch Netflix to keep you entertained. This will definitely be a new favorite feature for many people including myself, just remember to download before you officially have no signal otherwise you’ll be stuck with a long, boring time wherever you’re headed off to.

Fake babies taking over

Fake babies taking over

Sharon Ulloa

Crimson Reporter

Fake babies everywhere, that is all that we see, fake babies. Some have flour in them, fake googly eyes, and they all are wrap with baby blankets.

Students who take child development class are all probably carrying a 10 pound fake baby. Students were assigned to build a baby and assist for seven days. Students also received a log to keep track on the baby’s care and need.

This is very helpful to the students, so they can try and realize that having a child can be difficult. Parents need patience, time, and money, which most high school students don’t have. Even though it’s tricky to handle a baby and your classes, but you can’t deny the fact of how cute and lovable those fake babies are.

An assembly will be held on Friday, Oct. 21  by the LGBT club in the auditorium. This will be considered the school’s first time ever having an LGBT history assembly. The LGBT club have came a long way, not just their rallies and club rush moments but they will have the privilege of having their own assembly to display their community, to celebrate their pride and achievements.

Their community embraces their diversity, individuality, and sexuality. They’ll have the pleasure to show their support to this community and how much it means to them. And what is a more fun way than to have an assembly with every student included?

“I’m so excited, a lot of it was planned in the last few months. Ryan Alba, Milagros Robelo, Valeria Gracia, and me- Alyssa Lira, (officers of the LGBT), it took much to plan and we’re happy to share our work with you guys.” said Alyssa , 10th, SAS.
Period 5th teacher will be accountable of taking students to the auditorium. Not only will there be periods 1,2,3, & 5 but we will also have a minimum day dismissal at 12:39pm.

Can’t use a calculator in English: Only in the PSATs

PSAT testing on Wednesday  was a long and stressful day for all students who weren’t seniors. A three and a half hour long exam, testing knowledge in math and English was distributed not only to students in LAUSD but to schools all over the country.

This exam was a supposed ‘practice’ for the upcoming SATs for underclassmen, yet we were also told this exam was a qualification for Merit Scholarships.

Personally, what I do not understand, if this is a way to qualify for scholarships why doesn’t school administration talk about it more to let students prepare on their own time?  Middle school students also take this exam so knowing about it is not new to freshman as well as for sophomores and juniors. One week prior to the test taking was when I found out students were being tested.

Social media is a big thing in today’s youth, and every year on the day of the PSATs after every student has completed the exam, students somehow get it to trend on social media platforms such as Twitter, Instagram, etc. Now, does this mean because millions of students are talking about the test itself through social media, will our scores get cancelled ? Will we get in trouble for talking about “how many days it takes to read 30,000 words ?” After all we all did sign a contract saying we would not discuss this exam under any circumstances. Oh the irony.

With the tweets and memes going around all over, one very popular one was making fun of the “No calculator during the English section” rule. I including many others were not aware a calculator was needed for English. I still do not understand why that rule was made.

Overall. this exam did make a good topic to make fun of but should be taken seriously as the real SATs are approaching for anyone under the twelfth grade.

Hopefully, this exam made you realize you do not remember how to do any math whatsoever.  It should also make you practice how to flip pages back and forth pretty fast for the English section. Yay.
