A haven not only for women of the past but also of the present, the National Museum of Women in the Arts (NMWA) offers a venue exclusively for women's art. Until the last century, women artists had trouble finding success. Often, like writers, they had to work under an assumed name to gain any respect. NMWA proudly displays these artists from the 16th century to today.

The medals, the snowsuits, the way an ice skater's feet execute a perfect triple axle — the Winter Olympics are full of wonder. Every four years, world-class athletes from across the globe come together for hair-raising competitions on ice and in snow.

Demeaned but determined, we decided to host our own event in Silver Spring to showcase our Olympian talents in three winter sports.

With the stress of classes, looming college applications and uncertain futures, we Blazers can always use a little help in learning what our lives will bring. As seniors, we were naturally tempted to get some advice from the paranormal by seeking a psychic. So, we, Samantha Lint and Tasnia Habib, your fearless entertainment editors, set out to test the murky waters of palm reading.
