National Diabetes Day taking place today

National Diabetes Day taking place today

The primary world diabetes awareness and education campaign is being held today, Nov. 14- each year. This was first created in 1991 by the International Diabetes Foundation and the World Health Organization to have the people become aware of its prevention as well as its costliness, and to celebrate the fact that insulin was brought as a treatment against it, brought in the year 1992.

Diabetes is a disease that occurs when the blood glucose (or blood sugar) is too high. Insulin, a hormone made by the pancreas, helps the glucose from food to get into the cells and be used for energy. When the cells don’t receive enough glucose, it may result in fatigue and weakness. 

“One of the struggles is constantly having to be checking sugar levels, which means constant pinching fingers. And depending on the sugar levels is how urgent the situation is and we have to watch what we eat- what we have at home” says SAS junior, Leslie Rodriguez.

Ways of preventing diabetes, accoring to Heathline.com, include, cutting sugar and refined carbs from your diet, working out regularly, drinking water as a primary beverage, losing weight if overweight or obese, quiting smoking (if smoke), follow a very low carb diet, watch portion sizes, and avoiding sedentary beverages. 

While having diabetes is a major health issue, it is clear that it is very time-consuming and costly endeavor, as the economic cost of diabetes globally is around $245 billion (US).

This Halloween teachers and students dressed up all around campus. Many teachers got into spirit and had fun with their classes. Some teachers passed out candy and had different lessons than usual.

The best costume this Halloween was Mr. Milton as Thanos, catching everyone by surprise with his infinity gauntlet. Other good costumes were Dr. Kiesler as a mad scientist and Michaela Trelby, TCA Junior as a Vampire. Many people also wore onesies this Halloween to stay on the comfy side.

Veganism in Hollywood

Veganism in Hollywood

Veganism is making its round at Hollywood High.

Vegan options are now available for lunch that feature whole grain cheese pizza wedges, bean and cheese pupusas, and a plant based burger called the “Possible” burger. It helps prevent students that don’t eat meat from skipping lunch. I myself, have been pescatarian for seven months and whenever I have a salad for lunch I would have to take out every bit of chicken and eat it plain.

In addition, Hollywood High’s Vegan club is teaming up with book club to create a cook book just for vegans. This is well needed since the rate the rate of veganism is increasing in the world.

Going vegan is beneficial in various ways and will lead to longevity in life. For example, a vegan diet protects against cancers, lowers your risk of heart disease, decreases anxiety, improves your skin, and your quality of sleep. A vegan diet consists plant milk, nuts, seeds, salad, tofu, and other minimally processed meat substitutes. Eating animal products aren’t safe because they contain harmful contaminants including dioxins, mercury, and bacteria that affects our health. It’s not as difficult as you think to stop eating meat. You would still get enough protein and if you really love animals then you have to stop consuming them.

Celebrate national mole day

Celebrate national mole day

National Mole Day recognizes the Avogadroś number that is used in chemistry. In the United States it is celebrated between 6:02 am and 6:02 pm on Oct 23 (10/23) because the number is written as 6.02 x 10^23.

The Avogadroś number is used to define the number of atoms or molecules in one mole of a substance. A mole is a unit of measurement used in chemistry to express amounts of a chemical substance. It is important because it allows chemists to work with the subatomic world with macro world units and amounts.

Mole day originated in an article in The Science Teacher in the early 1980s and inspired by this article, the National Mole Day Foundation was founded on May 15, 1991.

To celebrate you can learn more about molecular science and Avogadroś number, test your knowledge of chemistry, conduct a mole experiment, or explore the international system of measurement using moles. Share your knowledge using #NationalMoleDay to post on social media.

Key Club takes a walk

Key Club takes a walk

Henry Alquiza

Chronicle Reporter

Our Hollywood Key Club went to the 35th Annual Aids walk to help with the awareness of the disease known as aids, grouped with region 7 Key Clubs, we took the march by a small proportion.

When we arrived at t he location we were greeted by a stage that had people who are representatives of the aid walk as well as the sponsors. We were then given a brief history the annual event originated and started in the city of Los Angeles. And was started by one man who wanted to make a stand and have awareness of a disease that can affect us all.

When we stated the walk we we encourage by the staff and told us we were walking for a good cause and we are doing the right thing. It was a 3 mile walk around downtown Los Angeles which was greeted by several checkpoints giving all the walkers snacks and drinks to keep their walk going. By the end we were greeted by the volunteers with sprays of water at our face.

I would recommend to take time to spread awareness about any disease that should be known by all humans. Where a 3 mile walk can show more than words can ever do.

Why celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month

Why celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month

Guadalupe Dominguez Trujillo

Chronicle Reporter

Sept. 15 is the day that marks the beginning of Hispanic Heritage Month. The Hispanic community is no longer a minority but a majority. During this month the contributions Hispanics have made to the American culture and Hispanic heritage is recognized and remembered. 

Former President Ronald Reagan extended the celebration to a month on Aug. 17, 1988. The reason behind the chosen date was because during the time period of Sept. 15 to Oct. 15, Latin American countries celebrate their independence, for example, El Salvador, Costa Rica, Guatemala, Honduras, and Nicaragua all celebrate their independence anniversary on Sept. 15.

“It’s an important time to celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month to keep the culture alive and to remind everyone where we come from and who we are, represent each country as it deserves,” said Sandy Barrios, Latino Student Union President. “People should acknowledge Hispanic Heritage month especially with everything that is going on.”

Ending the year with Hollywood Idol

Staff of Hollywood Highschool performing to Bruno Mar’s Uptown Funk.

Hollywood Idol took place on Friday May 24, ending the 2018-2019 school year off in a perfect note.

It started off by showing a short video clip of the person who started the tradition of Hollywood Idol, the one and only J.B Carmicle. This year, senior Isaak Ramirez from SAS hosted the event. The judges were Johnny Wood, William Manning, Mauricio Arocha, Alyssa Pinedo, and Lisa Hertzner.

Hollywood Idol mostly consisted of singing, but a group named Black Spadze brought intense dancing to this years show. A surprise performance by the teachers definitely made Hollywood Idol one to remember. Ms. Escobedo thought of the idea to have teachers come together to perform to Bruno Mar’s “Uptown Funk”. Secret rehearsals took place in Ms. Goldshein’s dance studio after school, where Ms. Escobedo choreographed and taught the flash mob dance to teachers and counselors.

The third place winner was Black Spadze, second place was Kings of No Nation, and the winner of Hollywood Idol 2019 was Randella Drew. Randella Drew sang a song that she wrote which was based on taking risks and standing up for eachother.

NMA Senior Jayson Duran shared his thoughts on this years show. ¨The show was great, it was also surprising to see the teachers perform. It was fun to cheer them on and laugh.¨
