The new drama “The Finest Hours” told a great story, but it could’ve been better. Based on a true story of an impossible Coast Guard rescue mission of 32 crewmembers. Bernie Webber captained a 36-foot boat off the coast of Cape Cod during a blizzard in 1952. I wish that Disney had gone a little deeper into the back story. I would’ve liked to know more about Webber...

The art of eyebrows being on fleek has become a big trend in the makeup community and most people interested in perfecting it have no idea where to even begin. The most difficult yet most rewarding part of my makeup routine has always been filling in my eyebrows. It has become a technique that many wish to perfect and some believe in order to achieve the perfect brow, certain...

Offensive comedy gives comedic relief

I like to think I have a pretty good sense of humor, and I credit my parents for this. "Funny" is the emotional thread that runs through my childhood. "Funny" trumped everything, even when it wasn't intended to. My father would occasionally blurt things out in the middle of yelling at one of us kids that would make the whole affair spontaneously devolve into a standup routine. And...

Every year as the month of October approaches, I begin to anxiously wait for the new batch of horror movies to be released. This year, the one that was the first to catch my eye was directed by the one and only M. Night Shyamalan. After finding out that this movie was directed by the same man that directed "The Sixth Sense", "Signs" and "The Happening" (just to name a few),...

Finally, summer is winding down, and fall is nearing. As the sky begins to have grayer days, the temperatures begin to fall. It’ll be nice to walk out of our houses and get in our cars without that instant rush of nearly unbearable heat – the heat that is seemingly just waiting for you in your car. The season of sweatshirts and jackets allows for more diversity when...

Kim Davis issues stem from lawyer

With the Supreme Court’s passing of same-sex marriage back in June, it came as a complete shock to me when I heard that a county clerk from Kentucky, Kim Davis, was not issuing marriage licenses to gay couples. At first, my thought process questioned, “Under what authority does this woman think she has the right to deny these couples their basic right as an American to...

Gun control has been a very hot topic in recent years. With shootings in shopping malls, movie theaters, universities and schools, many Americans are asking for laws that will implement some new form of gun control. The problem with these laws is the potential for infringing on our second amendment rights, and that is why America is torn over the question of gun control. The...
