"The flu is going around" "Strep is going around" "Stomach virus is going around" ... Basically every sickness ever is going around! So how do you stay healthy in the midst of a germ-filled storm? The dorms should be renamed "The Infirmary for College Students". Why? Because every sickness you could think of is most likely going around each floor. Ok, maybe that's a slight exaggeration, but you get the point. Dorms are nasty!! As a germaphobe and person blessed with the worst immune system ever...

This Woodland Hills student’s archery skills are right on target

Trenton Cowles’ journey to the Olympics began with a video game. As a fifth-grader, he first encountered archery virtually by playing Wii Sports Resort on the Nintendo game console and excelled at it. After constructing his own bow out of bungee cords and shooting sticks rather than arrows during a family trip to Yellowstone Park, he soon convinced his parents that archery was his passion. Now, a 16-year-old student at Taft Charter High School in Woodland Hills, Cowles took a step closer to his ...

Why we lie to ourselves, every day

Human action requires motivation, but what exactly are those motivations? Donating money to a charity might be motivated by altruism, and yet, only 1% of donations are anonymous. Donors don’t just want to be altruistic, they also want credit for that altruism plus badges to signal to others about their altruistic ways. Worse, we aren’t even aware of our true motivations — in fact, we often strategically deceive ourselves to make our behavior appear more pure than it really is. It’s a pattern tha...

Have Americans become too fragile for their own good?

Depression and anxiety rates are through the roof amongst young Americans, with the left and the right sides of the political spectrum blaming each other. Neither has an answer, and it goes beyond buzzwords like "safe spaces" and "triggered". When everyone feels like a victim, are the mediums of communication themselves—social media and search engines—at fault? There is no one right answer, but Jonathan Haidt makes a case for more open talk about our insecurities. Transparent communication with...

Anxiety, Depression, Eating Disorder

I don’t know what to do. I have diagnosed anxiety and depression, as well as diagnosed anorexia. I have done outpatient treatment for the past 1.5 years. This is my first year at university but my parents are 25 min away. I really don’t want to do recovery anymore, I am just so tired of it. But my parents are paying for college and staying in recovery is the only way I can continue my education. I am not really progressing with recovery, just kind of floating by. Probably relapsing a bit. I just...
