The Effectiveness of Face Masks

The year 2020 was unusual and difficult for people all over the world due to the COVID-19 pandemic. I myself never thought I would live in a time where everyone would be walking around with a face mask in public. Since the outbreak began one year ago, in January 2020, many people have questioned the effectiveness of face masks, and many recent studies have shown their true scientific effectiveness.

While some face masks are single-layer masks made up of non-woven fabric or wood pulp tissue paper, others are made from 100% cotton, but the most effective masks seem to be N95 masks, but often times the consumer does not know the differences between one or the other.      Photo by Molly Munoz

Democracy: Made In Germany

“Someone who only knows one country, knows no country.” Those were the wise words of the New Yorker, Seymour Martin Lipset, not in the context of international travel but in politics. Numerous Americans are still confident the world revolves around the USA and only around the USA. However, for those who find at least a bit of truth in Lipset’s statement, they will recognize democracy elsewhere in world, specifically in Germany.

Living Life on the Edge, Even During a Pandemic

In the midst of a global pandemic, it is important to have some sort of escape that allows you to get your mind off of things. Rock climbing has become a great way for these students from Missouri Baptist University to get outside and enjoy creation. When they spend time on the rock wall all of the stress from the pandemic goes out the window for a bit. 

Missouri Baptist University alum Wesley Smith, from Quincy, Illinois, makes his way to the toughest part of the climb up a vertical rock wall at West Tyson County Park in Eureka, Missouri. Smith, who is currently enrolled at Covenant Theological Seminary in St. Louis, was one of several men from MBU to venture out recently for a day of climbing.        Photo by Patrick Griffey

Netflix Documentary Exposes the Murderer Next Door

Netflix’s shocking documentary released this fall, “American Murder: The Family Next Door,” delves into the story of a Colorado man, Christopher Watts, who brutally murdered his pregnant wife, Shanann, and their two daughters, 4-year-old Bella and 3-year-old Celeste, in cold blood, and then left their lifeless bodies in an oil field where he was employed.


This well-produced documentary, by Knickerbockerglory, earned a 4.3 star rating, and over 50 million views, showing clearly how many people are enjoying it and how fast it got popular.       Photo courtesy of Ghaith Baazaoui

Jury Finds in Favor of “Law & Order” 

In the somewhat crowded genre of television legal dramas, the original run of “Law & Order” continues to stand out years after it ended due to its memorable cast and great writing. The show ran for two decades and ended 10 years ago, but when found in syndication or on Peacock still manages to feel fresh.
