The two advantages of the DNS are that computers are easier to use, and they can be used by more than one computer. “The result is a very flexible system,” continues Harris. You Started It! We can’t blame the creators of the internet for thinking 4 billion addresses would last forever. The problem is that the internet is a larger monster than anyone ever imagined. Only 18 years ago, surfing the net was done with gray pages and poor, low-resolution graphics. “My first computer was black and white,” says Mrs. Wood. “When getting on the internet, you’d sit and you’d wait and wait and wait and finally you’d get on. And there really weren’t that many places to go. But now you can get on in an instant and go almost anywhere.” Even Google was created just 13 years ago, changing internet browsing forever. Today, Google is more than just a search engine; it has ways to check stocks, look at books, and even blog online. With the advent of such new technology, new online businesses are being born.

The End of the Internet? By Jennifer Beatty

According to the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD), the internet is hurtling towards its doom. The internet’s problem is a lack of IP addresses. Less than 15% of available addresses remain, and worse, the rest may run out faster than we think. But what is an IP address, and how can we save our dear internet? A Phonebook for Computers “To reach another person on the Internet, you have to type into your computer an address, a name, or a number. That address has to be unique so computers know where to find each other. Without [this] we wouldn’t have one global internet,” writes Mark Harris, a journalist for the Sunday Times. This metaphor is easy to visualize; computers look up their friends in the universal phonebook. These computer addresses are called IP addresses. When you look up an IP address, it looks to computers more like 192.0.34.163.(icann.org); this system of organizing computers by numbers is called the Domain Name System (DNS). The DNS converts the IP address (that long string of numbers) into some-

Halloween Safe Night Fall Festival By Jeff King

In past years, Liberty has hosted Halloween Safe Night to celebrate the annual tradition of trickor-treating on the 31st of October. However, this year, DECA hosted a different event: the Fall Festival. Several rumors have been floating around about why this change occurred, one of them being a complaint from a parent. Some believe that a parent objected that since the school does not celebrate Christmas due to its religious roots, it shouldn't celebrate Halloween (Halloween started as a Pagan holiday). “Not true,” Mrs. Christoffersen, one of the advisors for DECA, states, “No parent said anything [about Safe Night].” Another rumor is that DECA did not make enough money to justify another Safe Night, which, again, is false. The real reason DECA changed the event to Fall Festival was because

“We thought it was time for a change, and we could better serve our community by collecting food for those in need,” Mrs. Christoffersen explains. The Fall Festival is now celebrated in lieu of Halloween Safe Night because DECA wanted to better serve the community and felt they could accomplish that goal with a new event focused on collecting food.

As we get closer to the last of the IP addresses, we’ll all notice it. Websites will take longer to load. Youtube videos will be jerky and take forever to upload. Teachers are noticing it too; with all the Infinite Campus problems, we all realize how much we depend on the internet. .Whatever

your location on the globe,” writes Harris. Internet 2.0 We could also be getting ready for a bigger internet. Internet 2 is a U.S. led effort to rebuild the internet, just better this time. According to Ted Hanss, “the current internet is not designed for the next generation of applications. It’s really focused on dialup users.” The Internet 2 moves 300,000 times faster than our internet at home. Many expect it to change the way we do everything on the internet. “Moving with such speed, Internet 2 will be able to provide remote diagnosis for doctors, send detailed medical files in a flash, stage high-resolution videoconferences, and download virtual reality applications,” writes Kristie Lu Stout. The Future of the Internet Whether the internet uses even more IP addresses or has a whole new makeover, we can expect the internet to keep on going.

Your computer may not catch on fire, but not having the intern et could be a big problem for students.

To help prevent the lack of IP addresses, icann.org, a service in charge of making sure no IP addresses are the same, has opened the possibility of creative IP address endings. Now website creators can make their website .car, or .green, or even .whatever. This will ensure that our internet will continue to be “universally resolvable.” “Without this you could end up with an internet that worked entirely differently depending on

STUCO, What are you doing!? By Maci Steeves

Of all the events that happen around Liberty High School, many of them can be accredited to the students and teachers of Student Council.

March Toward Victory!

By Kwang Choi

Paralleling the patriot musicians of the Revolutionary War, Liberty’s marching band has become the symbol of our school pride and spirit. Through intense drum beats, blaring horns, and flag tosses, the marching band never fails to charge us with morale and excitement. This is our one and only Liberty High School Pride of the Lancers Marching Band. Senior Haile Romero describes Liberty’s marching band as “one big family.” Marching band is a true test of team cooperation and coordination. Perhaps it’s this supportive mentality that led them to place second at the Pomona Marching Festival on October 1st, beating the 5A state champions from last year. “Everyone has a place in marching band,” explains sophomore Hannah Ashton. Individual dedication and a genuine love for the activity are some of the reasons the marching band has met record breaking success this year. Through broken bones, knocked teeth, and adverse weather conditions,

the marching band always give their 100% during practices, competitions, and football games. Of course, none of this would have been possible without the guidance of Mrs. Matzke and many others. Although the 2011 marching season has ended, the spirit of the marching band continues forth. With the marching band’s fierce effort and dedication, they’re unstoppable in their march toward victory. Every member of the marching band is a true champion to Liberty. Sources: Interview with Hannah Ashton and Haile Romero. http://www.pomonaband.org/ Default.aspx?tabid=169

Time Crunch!

Everyone is back into the swing of school; teachers are piling on the work; a number of activities are filling up calendars. Students have more to worry about than homework. Here are some helpful tips to keep sports, after school activities, and homework all balanced in pursuit of a stress-free school year.

Do’s

Dont’s

-Discipline yourself and prioritize your tasks so additional work will not be added on.

-Do not overwork. Welcome breaks when they are needed. -Do not procrastinate! The longer tasks are put off the harder they will be to finish later on.

-Try to get all homework done before going to bed so you will not stress out and lose sleep over it. -Limit distractions; the less time spent focusing on unimportant tasks is more time spent on more important jobs at hand.

Staged photo by Ashley Wierengo Freshman, Jenna Boskovich expresses the stresses of balancing many activities.

-Organize activities and workload by using a planner.

-Page 3-

-Try not to get overloaded. Concentrate on one thing and stick to it until the task is completed. -Do not waste free time that could be useful.

-Learn to say no. Focus on what work or activity must be done first, only after, should you decide what to do next. Staged Photo by Kwang Choi. Sophomore Bri Mattson and junior Kennedy Hart shows off their mellophones.

going to have someone from the Air Force come down…it’s going to be super sick.” Sandra Thomas is working with her group to make all of these functions known around the school. She says that “we do a lot of decorations for homecoming and other events and we make the posters that hang all over the school.” Grace comments that the class is a “STUCO family” and “our goal is to put on good events that help kids enjoy high school as well as help the community.” So far this year the student council at Liberty has been doing a superb job. Keep it up STUCO!

Do parents prefer one child over another? By Cirkeline Colberg

In an issue of Time Magazine, Jeffrey Kluger examines the Science of Family Favoritism. Lisa Belkin wrote the article about Jeffrey Kluger’s prediction of Family Favoritism. Favoritism is “favoring a person not because he or she is doing the best job but rather because of some extraneous feature— membership in a favored group, or personal likes or dislikes.” He writes, “This kind of reductionist, bottom-line behavior is something we share with creatures throughout the animal kingdom.” Katherine Conger from the University of California Davis, visited 400 families with children for three years. She asked them questions and recorded her visits. After those years she came to a conclusion that, “65 percent of mothers and 70 percent of fathers exhibited a preference for one child, usually the older one.” Maggie Harvey and Mrs. Miller say that

they don’t feel like their families have favorites. “There is evidence that they prefer the biggest, strongest, most charismatic child, and evidence that they prefer the smallest and weakest, the one

who needs them most,” says Jeffrey Kluger. Maggie Harvey says “I don’t think parents should have favorites, they should love their kids all the same. I don’t see why they could have favorites.” Of course each parent/child relationship will be different. Many parents do have favorites and they know that they won’t have the same relationship with every child, because they have different personalities. Lisa Belkin wrote: “We treat them differently because they ARE different. Navigating that reality is the key to being a parent.” Mr. Hopkins has 4 children who do not live with him anymore, two girls and two boys. He never heard his children say that they thought he preferred one over another; however, he states, “One of my daughters had some personal problems, so my other daughter told me I paid too much attention to that daughter,” Mr. Hopkins tells.

You will always love your children no matter what, and you will never give up on them. Mr. Hopkins says he loves all his children the same, even if he may not have a lot in common with each one, there are certain things that make them all shine the same.

Look Me in the Eyes

The word “naked” has received a new definition by the generations involved with technology today. Definition of Naked, 2011: leaving the house or anywhere without a cellphone, ipod or some other sort of technology. Our grandparents, mothers, and fathers grew up in a time where technology was almost nonexistent and today everyone from age five to sixty has an ipod, smart phone and/or computer that goes with them everywhere. The advancement has brought about many improvements in the economical society, but is daily hurting the social lives of people around the world. Face to face contact is losing importance. Who needs it when you can send a message via technology and get it done faster? All it takes is the click of a button to let people know what you need to say.

The Blame Game

he/she did something wrong. Owning up and apologizing can be difficult. In many situations guys and girls blame their significant other’s friends for their relationship going wrong, but is that really fair? Just because your friend does not like the person you are dating does not mean that he or she is the cause of a relationship gone bad. Some people do not like the feeling of knowing they were wrong, so that might be why they find somewhere else to place the blame. There are often times when people cannot accept the consequences for their actions. Whether they “can’t find another reason for what happened,” which is what Sophomore Stephen Rice says, or as Freshman Nina Romero says, “they don’t want to own up to what they did,” Bottom line, people blame others.

From the fast-paced plot, to the dynamic and witty characters, The Musical Comedy Murders of 1940 is an entertaining show. The dark side of the show is just enough to thrill the audience but not enough to completely spook them. The plot quickly develops as the first character is murdered in the opening scene. The rest of the show leaves the audience trying to figure out who the “stage door slasher” is.

Listeria Epidemic By Matt Caverly

The end of cantaloupe season cannot come soon enough. As of October 19, twenty-six people have died from the Listeria outbreak traced back to Jensen Farms in Holly, Colorado. Initially, the germs were believed to be in the soil at Jensen Farms, but the FDA just announced that traces of Listeria were found in Jensen’s packing facilities. These germs can usually be killed by cooking, pasteurization, or even proper sanitation. In this case, however, the germs went undetected in the cantaloupe and surrounding facilities until health officials began to notice that the illness was becoming widespread. Some effects of contracting Listeria can be fever, muscle aches, headaches, stiff neck, loss of balance, and even confusion. Only elderly people, infants, and others with compromised immune systems are really at risk of death. Cases of the illness

have been reported in 25 different states. Although these may

not all be linked to the Jensen Farms cantaloupes, most of them probably are because these cantaloupes were shipped to grocery stores all over the United States. The government ordered all of Jensen Farms’ cantaloupes to be removed from stores nationwide. By now, all of the Jensen melons should be gone because their last shipment was September 10, and the cantaloupes usually have a shelf life of a little

over two weeks. Still, some people are skeptical. Junior Eduardo Ramirez insists that he would still “rather not take the chance” of contracting Listeria through a rotten melon. Jack Christiansen, also a junior, advises “I would refrain from the melons for at least a month.” The issue still at hand is that some companies don’t know where the cantaloupe they purchase comes from; because of this, some retailers may still be distributing infected cantaloupes. While contracting Listeria could be quite devastating, at this point it is highly unlikely and it is safe to resume buying melons.

The plot revolves around a creative team, one of whom may be the “stage door slasher.” However, in addition to the creative team, there are new actors, undercover cops, a German maid who is supposed to be dead, and a proud hostess. Any of them could be the slasher. As secret passage ways are revealed, and multiple deaths occur, the suspects are narrowed down and the truth is exposed. The show, besides its somewhat dark plot, has a very light and comedic feel to it. Each character has traits and lines that have the audience laughing in their seats. The terrific harmony in the cast greatly adds to the flow and it is obvious they are having fun,

which in return allows the audience to have a great time. Patrick McClellan and Grace Jacobsen have understandable and convincing accents that add to the authenticity of the show. Daniel Dorbin as Roger and Rae Watkins as Bernice are eccentric and hilarious. Kirsten Price and Scott Comfort portray the stereotypical “show business” people viewers often love to see. Even though the characters are cliché, they are acted in a realistic and talented way. The romantic leads, Devin Glidden and Daniel Clingen have obvious chemistry on stage. In every new plot twist there seems to be a “twist” in the set, even the movement of something as simple as a pen causes drastic changes and expands the one room set into an underground labyrinth. Grant Brown and Audrey Brewster make a comical team of super sleuths trying to figure out the Mystery. All together, the cast, set, and script make a dark and thrilling but comical show. The Musical Comedy Murders of 1940 has great aspirations of performing the show in Denver for other thespians in Colorado.

To Crack or not to Crack popping noise may be music to their ears. While in reality, the popping causes the capsule that contains the synovial fluid to stretch, and after repeatedly doing this, the capsule can burst. The popping noise occurs when the pressure levels in our fingers change. This can be compared to the opening of a soda can. When a soda can is opened it pops as the pressure levels go from high to low.

Attention all knuckle poppers and back crackers! Do you know the truth behind this popular habit? The “popping” of a knuckle or back isn’t really a pop at all.

The real problem is when people try to crack their back without the help of professionals.” When people do all sorts of twists and turns when trying to crack their back, they can be putting themselves in serious danger. The spine protects the nerve routes that travel throughout the whole body. These nerves send out seventeen trillion messages per minute. When you force your back to crack, you could damage a spinal disc. Once you damage the discs or dorsals in your back, permanent damage could be done, such as paralyzation.

Who can answer “yes” when someone asks the question: “Have you ever been cheated on by your boyfriend/ girlfriend?” Everyone can admit that getting cheated on hurts; one might feel betrayed and angry but if the cheater shows genuine remorse for his/her actions should this person be forgiven and taken back? Of course he/she deserves to be forgiven but taken back? The answer is probably not. This is high school and relationships are generally not serious, so when someone is already cheating in this non-serious dating aspect, it really reflects on what kind of character this person has and is developing for him/herself. In cheating, the cheater shows that he/she is a liar. In a relationship trust is one of the fundamental building

Forgive, Forget, Fidelity By Tonya Kramer

How many people can admit to having made a mistake in their lives? Nobody is perfect; therefore, everyone messes up at some point. Just because a person makes a mistake does not mean that he or she should never be trusted again or be labeled as a failure. People learn from their mistakes and deserve redemption if they show they are willing to change. The same theory applies to those who have cheated in a relationship. Relationships are tricky, and if one person cheats on the other, but genuinely feels sorry for his or her action, then a second chance is deserved.

50/50: Adam is Beating the Odds By Xandra McMahon

It’s Good… Too Good… By Cory Kennedy

Villains by Necessity, Eve Forward’s first novel, is not the typical story of Good and Evil. Forward creates a plot that no author has dreamed of before. Wars have been fought between the two forces for thousands of years, all ending in a stalemate. In the most recent however, Good triumphed over Evil and sealed the Dark Gate – Evils hearth to the world. This is how a normal Good vs. Evil story would end. But as Evil falls, “[the world is] unbalanced. Nature is affected; the nights grow shorter, and the weak and ill do not die…The people are slowing, drifting into ennui of constant prosperity…but though the people curse you, and your darkness makes you alone, you are as necessary to the survival of the world as predators are to an environment. If everyone and everything were evil, the world would be plunged into eternal darkness. If everyone and everything were good, the world would be sublimated in a dazzling brilliance.” Arch-mage

Mizzamir leads the search against lingering Evil. He develops a peaceful way of disposing Evil: simply strip Evil minds of the Evil within. However, he is the antagonist in this flipped story, as is his centaur spy, Robin. The protagonists are actually a few villains: a dark-clothed assassin, a short thief, a shorttempered sorceress, and a mysterious, dark knight. Forward makes this possible by making the villains humorous and, surprisingly, likable. But they are still Evil and cannot join forces on their own; they need help. They need the last druid-a neutral people who believe in the preservation of nature through the balance of Good and Evil Kaylana. The troupe must search the Six Lands for the six pieces of the Segment Key, which is not nearly as easy as digging them up or finding them in a museum; they are guarded by magic. First, they must decipher a rhyme provided to them by the all-knowing demi -god Bhazo. They follow the villains to the very end. Good is

es comedy and drama in the perfect ratio, making a delicious combo. As soon as the film gets too light for the scenario, it pulls a fast one on the audience, bringing about shocking, heart wrenching moments that leave some audience members batting their eyes. 50/50 draws its viewers in and delivers all the elements of dramedies: Humor, sorrow, and a wonderful message about friendship.

Memorable Quote: Adam: A tumor? Dr. Ross: Yes. Adam: That doesn't make any sense though. I mean... I don't smoke, I don't drink... I recycle...

just as dangerous a force as Evil. Forward shows how misunderstood Evil is. She shows Evil can love, sacrifice, and even show loyalty. Villains By Necessity is a fresh breath from the archetypical story where Good prevails simply because it is Good. The book concludes with a completely unexpected revelation that not even the best reader could guess. For fantasyfiction fanatics, Villains By Necessity is a must read that will leave readers bedazzled and desperately seeking a sequel.

Gemini

May 21 -June 20 Your car will be run over by a monster truck today, Gemini. That is all.

Cancer

June 21 -July 22 Cancer, you are going to find your passion in life today; however, your family and friends will tell you that you are horrible at it. Find a new direction in life, Cancer.

Leo

July 23 -August 22 Leo, you are going to have the worst dream possible, but you cannot wake up from it because it is actually your life. Also, your sun roof will be left open and it will rain today.

Virgo

August 23 -September 22 Virgo, you will be on a boat today, but T-Pain and Andy Samberg will angrily push you off into shark infested waters.

Libra

Technology: The Future is Now! By Jordan Blakeley

Forty years ago cell phones and computers were just an abstract idea. The first cell phone was invented in 1973 and the first Apple computer was created 1976, but people did not use these products as often. The Apple I was the first computer by Apple, “It came with a video interface, 8k of RAM and a keyboard. The system incorporated some economical components, including the 6502 processor.” Now in 2011, most people use this kind of technology daily. Whether it is surfing the web, playing games, or calculating finances, there is no limit on what people can do on these devices. Many consumers wonder, “How could technology get more advanced?” New ideas and inventions are formed every day, and inventors are becoming even more creative. The day before the legendary Steve Jobs died (October 5, 2011), Apple released its newest version of the iPhone called the iPhone 4S. Many question the

difference between it and all the other iPhones; the answer is that the iPhone 4S contains a new operating system called iOS 5. What in the world does this operating system do? Well, the iOS 5 operating system opens up a range of features: wireless syncing, new message systems…you name it, it’s on there! The iPhone 4S also comes equipped with an A5 dual-core processor, which increases the quality of the graphics when gaming and boosts the speed of the web. Overall, it is a more interactive, responsive, and personal device. When it comes to future electronic technology, the hottest new invention that is catching the public’s eye is the glasses -free 3-D television. This innovative piece of equipment has been produced, but has not been perfected and remains to be developed. "I think we're still looking at two years of development before this genera-

tion of monitors is out on the market," said CEO of Aha International Media in Berlin. To create these images in 3-D, they use “special optical foils that show different images to each eye, tricking viewers' brains into seeing pop-out images.” The process of creating the best possible quality from every possible angle is long and overwhelming. “The higher the number of grayscale images, the better the 3-D quality.” Right now, the only 3-D televisions available are prototypes that can only be viewed in black and white, so it is easy for a person to favor color images over the 3 -D experience. However, researchers in Berlin are trying to combine them and give people “the best of both worlds.” Frederik Zilly, manager for the Fraunhofer Heinrich Hertz Institute's 3-D analyzer project in Berlin expresses his confidence, “I think that 3-D without glasses will be the future.”

Technology is advancing everyday and researchers are thinking of new ideas rocketing the demand for these groundbreaking tools to an all-time high. Citizens cannot get enough of the new technology! Who knows what could happen? Not far from now, we could see flying cars roaming

the skies or 4D televisions in every household. Human imagination is the limit!

The Fruit of Steve Jobs: Innovation and a Legacy By David Brown

lead Apple Incorporated to become one of the most successful companies today. Before Jobs founded Apple Inc. he worked for Atari and helped create the popular game Breakout with long-time friend and future business partner Steve Wozniak. Both had interest in early computer systems, and Jobs convinced Wozniak that they should sell the computer programs they made. This led them to create the Apple I in 1976, and then the Apple II in 1977. In 1985 Jobs was fired from Apple Inc. but founded NeXT Inc. Steve Jobs speaking at one of his popular keynote speeches.

Jobs changed the name of The Graphics Group to the name it is known by today, PIXAR. In 1996, Apple Inc. bought NeXT computers and Steve Jobs was, well, back on the job. At first, Jobs was the interim CEO, but by 2000 he was the permanent CEO of Apple Inc. By improving Apple computers and introducing his “i” campaign, which produced iPods, iPhones, and iPads, Jobs made Apple Inc. a technological leader and one of the most valuable companies in the world. To put this into perspective a $100,000 investment in 1996 would have grown to more than $7 billion earlier this month.

Jay Walk Your Way to a Ticket By Josie Smith

In the mornings, during lunch, and after school, students are being told by Officer Riester to walk down to the crosswalk at Coach House Drive to cross Scarborough Drive instead of abruptly crossing in the middle of traffic. Officer Riester has been stationed on Scarborough to stop students from jay walking, because jay walking is illegal: she is at first, giving warnings, and eventually giving tickets to the students who do not abide. Officer Riester is enforcing this law because, “there has been too many close calls and [the school] is worried someone will get hit.” Walking down to Coach House Drive is very inconvenient for many people, especially the students and teachers that park on Scarborough Drive. Walking this distance brings up many problems for students, from almost being late to getting your shoes dirty. When
