'Chivalry Is Dead Because Feminism Killed It'

Emily Carroll, Co-Editor-in-Chief

February 13, 2015

"Chivalry is dead because feminism killed it." As I scroll through twitter, I see this tweet that puts me a little on edge. How does feminism kill a man's decision to be chivalrous? Unfortunately, it is because people claim to be feminists but instead mistake equal rights for power over and emasculation...

Digital Dilemma

I see it in class every day. Students on their phones. Sometimes I wonder if I am the last left who still feels guilty for pulling out my phone to look something up or try to check my grades. This is wrong. School policy declares that devices must be off all day, but the moment I step into class it’s...

Isis Does Not Equal Islam

Isis Does Not Equal Islam

ISIS is not a Muslim Terrorist group. They are just a cult of people who commit terroristic attacks in the name of, “Allah.” It is a shame that Islam, a religion whose followers are constantly judged as terrorists, is seen as a philosophy of violence and terror. Muslims do not deserve to be treated...

“Letter N, you may begin your audition,” the room monitor says to the girl next to me. I sit in the ready chair to her right, my palms sweating, as I try to control my breathing and will my heartbeat to slow down. I wipe my clammy hands on my jeans, trying to maintain my composure. You can do...

May 27, 2014. As I woke up from a deep sleep, I felt a knot in my throat. I went to school, and I was unusually quiet. As I sat down in my classes, I felt out of place and uneasy. Something was not right, I just felt as if something bad was going to happen at any moment. And I was not ready for it....

“All your life you’ve been treated like special little snowflakes,” The Professor says as he locks both doors. “It is my job to tell you that you’re not special at all.” 80 hot sweaty kids, dressed in everything from midriffs to freshly pressed tuxedos listen attentively, hanging on the...

On Family, One Team?

On Family, One Team?

Steven Garcia, Reporter

December 12, 2014

Sitting in the belly of Rider High School for the past almost four years, there’s been a motto that’s been drilled in students’ minds: “One Family, One Team.” How can we as people spread this propaganda to the next generation of Raiders when this “family” often makes other “family”...

As a military city, it is more than our duty to respect our troops. This includes both those who live or work at Sheppard as well as our own JROTC program. For instance the Pledge of Allegiance is a form of respect that is built into our school day and participation is just a small token of our gratitude...

Finally. I’d basically been waiting for this phone for practically two years. To finally be rid of the haunting past that was my phone was glorious.. Granted I was supposed to wait in a freakishly long line, and maybe fill out the paperwork to get the new phone six to eight weeks later in...

Senior year is supposed to be exciting and something to look forward to. You are nervous about prom and who is going to ask you.
