Songs of the Summer

Every summer has had a hit song, and whether you like it or not, you probably know most of its lyrics. In 2010 it was Katy Perryís "California Gurls", in 2012 it was Carly Rae Jepsenís "Call Me Maybe" and in 2016 it was Drakeís "One Dance". The "song of the summer" is usually a pop song that you may not love, wouldnít find yourself listening to on your own, but itís the one you always sing along to loudest when it plays on the radio.

This should go without saying, but a recent event has demonstrated that even today, politics can come between girls and STEM opportunities by preventing an all-girls team from Afghanistan from entering the United States for an international robotics competition.

Keeping it in the family?

The turnover in Trumpís staff over the past six months has left Americanís heads spinning. We have watched as Trump has fired staffer after staffer, replacing them as if they had no value. Most recently, Trump appointed Anthony Scaramucci as the new communications director by forcing the former director, Sean Spicer, into resignation. From this tumultuous start to the presidency, it appears the White House is crumbling from the inside (Trumpís most trusted circle of advisors), outwards.

Directed by Nikolaj Arcel, The Dark Tower, which should have inspired both avid book enthusiasts and action-oriented moviegoers alike, instead leaves audiences sadly wondering about what could have been.
