Teaches New Tech 2


By Sheng Vang Renee was 19 years old in 2006 when she dealt with depression, self-injury, addiction, and attempted suicide. With the help of Jamie Tworkowski and 4 other friends, they were able to help Renee into rehab. Renee has battled with a constant presence of evil in her life ever since she was a child. She would drink from bottles of liquor and lock herself in the bathroom. Every time she would cut herself with a razor writing “F**K UP” in her arms. That is where the story of To Write Love on Her Arms came into place. Jamie documented the 5 day experience with Renee. T-shirts were being printed to help pay for Renee’s treatment. Ever since then, people were touched and inspired by the story. It became viral because it was a story that anyone could relate to. What started with a story became a non-profit organization called, To Write Love on Her Arms. TWLOHA is a movement

dedicated to give hope and help to people struggling with depression, addiction, self-injury, and suicide. Their mission is make sure people are informed about mental health issues. They believe by informing people about the truth of mental health it will fight against the stigma surrounding it. About two-thirds of people with depression do not seek treatment. By educating those about mental health it will give an opportunity to those who need help. More than 350 million people suffer from depression worldwide. Depression is a mood disorder that manifests in feelings, sadness, or emptiness. 25 percent of adults with a mental illness have a substance dependence or abuse. Addiction is a chronic brain disorder. In the U.S., there is a suicide every 13.7 minutes. Suicide is the 3rd leading cause of death for Americans age 15-24. It involves psychological and social factors. Suicide is preventable.


able. You can save a life by having them talk about it. If you want to get involved, TWLOHA has an amazing program that’s easy to get access to. They have a program called The Storytellers. It is a high school campaign to help students start a conversation about mental health. It is a 2 month campaign allowing students to work with their school to address mental health issues, bring the TWLOHA message to their school, and help the community. 1 in 5 teens have experienced depression. Through The Storytellers, they hope to see a movement rise up for love and acceptance, stop stories about stereotypes, and make conversations that are hard to talk about more common. How it works is a student submits an online application after finding a faculty advisor with permission, if under the age of 18. The application is then reviewed by The Storytellers’ program directors. The advisor will then be notified by email and be put into 1 of the 4 brackets of the term. Once you have been selected you are given TWLOHA info, books, and material to help promote and brainstorm activities. At the end of the campaign the students are rewarded for participating in such an important vision. If you want more information about the program visit their website at http://twloha.com. On their website they have blogs from people who have dealt with depression and their experience. It is a whole new level of intimacy you can relate to that ensures you are never alone. There are also resources on the site that give you options for help. If you want to get more involved, the site has other programs and upcoming events to attend for awareness. At our roughest time we don’t believe we can make it through the day, but we have to remember we’re never alone.

importance of learning f o r e i g n L a n g uag e s

earning a language is an experience like no other. It opens many new doors and creates opportunities that would otherwise be nonexistent. With the technologies at our disposable currently, there are many methods one can go about learning a language. One of course can take a class with their school, but can also do it independently. There are many resources that allow people to teach themselves foreign languages, including: Rosetta Stone and free site Live Mocha. As the globe becomes more and more connected, it is undoubtedly necessary to learn an additional language alongside their mother tongue. One aspect that learning a language brings out is travel. Travel opportunities will be presented to you once you start to master a language. Not only that, it will also improve the experience. I’m studying French, and I will be going on a trip with school to Spain and France next year. 5

"As the globe becomes more and more connected, it is undoubtedly necessary to learn an additional language alongside their mother tongue." Half of the trip is made up of a family-stay. Without knowing the language, it would be almost impossible to communicate with them, unless they were fluent in English. The trip will be very easy knowing the language.I’ll be able to ask citizens of that nation for help in their language if I am in need of it. This will increase your respectability heavily, as you are actually interacting with their culture instead of just a drifting sight-seer tourist. Learning a foreign language can also better your cognitive skills. Studies have shown that people who do so become better at problem-solving and critical thinking. Memory is also known to have improved. Your native language also improves. As you learn a foreign language, you become


more attentive when using your mother tongue. Your knowledge of grammar increases and your vocabulary expands. I found this to be true because I’ve come across French words that I didn’t know, looked them up in a French-English dictionary, and can now use the English word that I usually didn’t before. In today’s global economy, more and more businesses are expanding on an international scale. Your advantage in being bilingual, or even trilingual, increases your chances in obtaining a job. My aunt, for example, speaks Spanish. She obtained a temporary job working with a youth group at a church in a predominantly Hispanic area of Chicago. It was a wonderful experience for her. Take a look at this statistic from the Business Journal. “If the world’s population totaled 1,000 people, the distribution would be as follows: 564 Asian. 210 European, 86 African, 80 South American, 60 North American -- meaning the United States, Canada and Mexico.” Despite many people believing English is the most used language, it actually is not: Mandarin Chinese is. Learning a foreign language should be required in all schools, especially since the United States falls behind

many other nations in foreign language proficiency. As students get older, there should be a vast array of choices of languages. Although many people would probably question the importance of it frequently, like mathematics, it will be very beneficial in the future if they work hard at it.

“Learning a foreign language should be required in all schools... It’ll be very beneficial in the future...”

Building Your Own Computer

Written By:

Sean Ihrke

uilding your own computer is a great way to make your computer the most personalized to your interests and also is a great way to save some money. The computers that are sold at retail stores like Best Buy, Walmart, Office Max, etc. aren’t going to be perfect for your needs. You might not need the graphics card that they have in it because all you’ll be doing is writing, maybe it won’t have the right amount of RAM for all of the programming you do, or it doesn’t have an hdmi port for hooking your computer into your HD tv. For whatever reason it is, building a computer is a lot better of an option than just buying one that’s already built. Don’t be scared the first time you try to build your first computer or the first time you open a computer you own. There are a lot of parts, but if you do your research, you’ll know what all the parts are and what they do. Research is necessary for building a computer, because you need to know exactly what to get to fit what you’ll have to buy for what you need. Without research you might not even buy enough RAM to run your operating system. The first thing you’ll need for building your own computer is a case (or tower). You’ll need a place to put all of the equipment

The reason I put PTEDADAPTEDADAPTEDADAPTEDADAPTEDADAPTEDADAPTEDADAPTEDADAP these together is because the DAPTEDADAPTEDADAPTEDADAPTEDADAPTEDADAPTEDADAPTEDADAPTEDAD processor is put directly into the DADAPTEDADAPTEDADAPTEDADAPTEDADAPTEDADAPTEDADAPTEDADAPTED motherboard.

How much power you DADAPTEDADAPTEDADAPTEDADAPTEDADAPTEDADAPTEDADAPTEDADAPTED need to get depends on how PTEDADAPTEDADAPTEDADAPTEDADAPTEDADAPTEDADAPTEDADAPTEDADAP much your equipment needs. DAPTEDADAPTEDADAPTEDADAPTEDADAPTEDADAPTEDADAPTEDADAPTEDAD You could end up just getting a DADAPTEDADAPTEDADAPTEDADAPTEDADAPTEDADAPTEDADAPTEDADAPTED 400W power supply for a basic TEDADAPTEDADAPTEDADAPTEDADAPTEDADAPTEDADAPTEDADAPTEDADAPT DAPTEDADAPTEDADAPTEDADAPTEDADAPTEDADAPTEDADAPTEDADAPTEDAD computer and it will run just fine. DADAPTEDADAPTEDADAPTEDADAPTEDADAPTEDADAPTEDADAPTEDADAPTED Getting the right power supply PTEDADAPTEDADAPTEDADAPTEDADAPTEDADAPTEDADAPTEDADAPTEDADAP is extremely important.

THE BIG PICTURE A Glance Through Claire Alice Young’s Eyes By: Kaitlin Dahm

Have you ever seen such a beautiful sight that you wish it would remain with you forever? Taking a picture of it just might be your solution. People like Claire Alice Young see the beauty in everything. Young is a 20 Year old photographer that has been pursuing her passion since the age sixteen! She’s always got her camera, never missing an opportunity for capturing lovely moments. Young grew up in Melbourne, Australia and is still living there in a little cottage by the seaside with what she calls, her “love.” She and her love dream of selling everything and living on the road. Living on the road means new sights every day and never slowing down to rest. “I’m finding myself growing more and more restless each day. I know we are waiting to finish our courses before moving on to adventure in new and exciting places… but part of me wants to pack up the house and start right away! Thank goodness I have two overseas holidays planned for later this year.

I am happiest when I am on the road.” Young has said that she uses photography as a way to communicate, and express thoughts and ideas. She says that using pictures is a whole lot easier to explain things rather than words. While experiencing a new sensation of riding on a train, Young goes into deep thought, “My thoughts are free to roam while riding the train and I get the perfect opportunity for my favorite pass time, people watching. There are old friends and young friends, the boy with a tattered skateboard, a child peering with wonderment at the world racing by. There are happy people and sad people; everyone is sharing this quiet, personal moment together. I watch with wild eyes as I take in each face. Who is the girl with the tired eyes? What is her story? Does she paint? Maybe she is on her way to meet her lover. I silently click my shutter from the hip, not daring to disturb these private, intertwined worlds.” Getting in touch with her creative deep thoughts, Young

I am happiest when I am on the road.

Rookie Quarterbacks of 2012: Whose your favorite? By Nick Schmidt

T

he rookie quarterbacks that got drafted in the year of 2012 were incredible. All 5 ended up being starting quarterbacks and 2 of them lead there team to the play offs. It was very odd to see that many starting rookie quarterbacks but they proved everyone wrong and went out and busted their tails. Overall Russell Wilson was the smallest quarterback but was one of best. Right behind him was Andrew Luck who threw for the third most passing yards in rookie history also had a fantastic year. One thing that I noticed when watching them play, there run first quarterbacks which isn’t a bad thing but it’s more likely that they will end up with an injury. Here are some stats about some of the draft picks: 19

The NFL’s fantastic set of rookie quarterbacks have gotten even better late in the season of 2012.

rookie QBs this year have started a record 71 games since the 1970 AFL-NFL merger


Andrew Luck, Indianapolis: The Colts are looking to the No. 1 draft pick to fill the shoes of that other No. 1 draft pick of yore, and so far, so good. The “the most NFL-ready rookie quarterback” is picking the game up quickly and looks well-positioned to lead Indy through a rebuilding year. Robert Griffin III, Washington: The No. 2 overall pick and Heisman winner saw little time on the preseason field, but maintained a 103.3 QB rating. The Redskins might just be being cagey about how they'll use him. Ryan Tannehill, Miami: Fresh out of Texas A&M, Tannehill was drafted No. 8 overall by a Dolphin squad desperately seeking some stability at QB. He's the first rookie to start in franchise history. Brandon Weedon, Cleveland: The 28-year-old spent years trying to make it as an MLB pitcher before playing for the Oklahoma State Cowboys, where he defeated teams led by the three QBs drafted higher than he was. Russell Wilson, Seattle: At 5'-11", he's the smallest of the rookie QBs, but throws and runs like a giant. “He is so prepared," says Coach Pete Carroll. "He doesn’t seem like a first-year player.” rookie QBs this year have started a record 71 games since the 1970 AFL-NFL merger

The Beginning of Naruto

This picture has all the characters in the anime that are shown as far as my summary goes at least.

“Naruto” is a manga and an anime. A manga are the same experience being alone when he was comics created in Japan, or by Japanese creators young and doing the same things that Naruto has in the Japanese language and anime is a Japadone when he was a child. Naruto’s dream was nese animated production featuring hand-drawn to become Hokage so that the village will have or computer animation. Naruto came from to pay attention to him and that he wouldn’t be the person who made the manga which is Maignored. sashi Kishimoto. Masashi Kishimoto has a twin Naruto was tricked into stealing a forbidbrother which is also a manga artist named Seishi den scroll that contains secret ninja techniques Kishimoto. Masashi made the idea of Naruto or “Ninjutsu” that a renegade ninja named Mizuki from one of his one-shot comics that told Naruto to steal it so that he can I can’t stand ... he made earlier. A one-shot comic was become an ninja. Iruka finds out and a story created as a single issue. Ma- people who lie to tries to get Naruto to run away but sashi also was surprised of how Naruto Naruto stands up to Mizuki. Mizuki is themselves also the person that tells that Narut o quickly became popular. -Naruto Naruto is about a kid who has has the Demon Fox in him and that is a powerful creature sealed inside him called the the reason that the village avoids him. Either way Nine-tailed Demon Fox. He has this dangerthough Naruto fights Mizuki with the ninjutsu ous creature in him because the fourth Hokage that he learned “Kage Bushin” shadow clones and sealed it into him. After this event the people wins and becomes a ninja. of his village “Konoha” was told not to tell Naruto is then brought into a group of Naruto that he has the Demon Fox inside him. ninjas of his own age and a teacher. His team Ever since this had been decreed Naruto has was team 7 and within it was Sasuke Uchia been alone and the only way to get attention which was the best one out of the class and with was to become an trouble maker. The only one Sakura Haruno that is an average girl ninja who that really gave him attention other than being has a crush on Sasuke and Naruto has a crush a trouble maker was his teacher Iruka who has on Sakura. The team leader was Kakashi Hatake 20


When someone has someone precious to protect, that is when they become truly strong -Haku

wich is Team 7’s first mission was to escort a civilian back to his home nation but while they were taking him home they were ambushed by two ninjas and but Team 7 won and after that they questioned the person that they were escorting and was told that he was the chief leader of making a bridge that would connect his home nation and the mainland and this would lead their nation to not be in poverty and make trade with those of the mainland. When they finished escorting the bridge guy they were attacked yet again by another pair of ninjas but this pair was stronger than the ones that team 7 has dealt with before. With these encounters Naruto was being tested by the world and has learned to get along with the team when the time was needed for it and to always put the lives of others first before your own. Also through these events Naruto has touched the power of the fox that is inside him and used it when his teammate sasuke seemed to be dead by the enemy ninja. Also sasuke has unlocked the sharingan which is a blood line trait that lets him see things before they happen but the foretelling of these things that his eyes can c can only be only a couple seconds ahead of the future. After they achieved their mission they left to train for the chunin exams. This exam is an test of genin ninja to let them demonstrate their skills to become chunin class ninja to take on harder missions. This lead Naruto and his friends that he has made across the way to be challenged by a variety of strong ninja that will be necessary to get stronger for the upcoming events. Obviously this isn’t the whole Naruto story it’s only a part of it. This summary is just of the first 50 or so episodes in the anime and like the first couple volumes in the manga. I love both the anime and the manga. This is a great manga and anime I advise you read it if u like a good story , ninjas, or epic fighting.

This is pic is a drawing I saw on the internet and colored it in during my spare time and I believe this shows how much I like Naruto.
