Is the Death Penalty Fair?

The death penalty has been a sensitive topic in the United States for many years. Although 28 states still allow the death penalty, more states have continued to abolish it. Over the past few decades, previously verifiable reasons for the death penalty have become more questionable. A poll taken in 2018 showed that 54% of Americans support the death penalty. A more recent poll conducted in 2019 shows that number has increased by 2% in America, bringing the total up to 56%. In 2021, are there still reasons to be in favor of the death penalty?

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

Why I Got Married at 18 Years Old

As May approaches each year, young people are graduating high school, planning summer trips as new high school graduates, transitioning into adulthood and preparing for college or even their first job outside of school. My situation at 18 years old was completely different from all of my friends as I was not only graduating high school and transitioning into becoming a college student, I was preparing to be a wife.
