When you think of 2K Games as a company, you probably think of them as the publishers of the Borderlands franchise and the makers of the NBA 2K franchise.

Nothing makes acts of police brutality okay but not enough attention to the good things police do daily for their communities is not okay either. The bad aspects of a cops job are constantly pushed into the media to spread throughout the public. This can give a terrible image of cops in general, causi...

On January 22nd, New York Governor, Andrew Cuomo signed and passed the Reproductive Health Act, which allows abortions of unborn children during the mother’s third trimester, up until her due date.

As Spirit Week at Brashier draws to a close, one glowing piece is missing. One piece that could unite Brashier and bring school spirit to an all time high.

Fake friends are like snake venom...toxic. “What is a fake friend?” you may ask; a “friend” who is only interested in his/her own needs, does not actually care for anyone else’s feelings, and takes every single action to please himself/herself without worrying about the effects it has on others is class...

Why vote? It doesn’t matter. As Millennials and members of Generation Z grow older, we are constantly told that it is our civic duty to vote, but if voter participation is as bad as it seems, how come the U.S. is growing?

There are many things we take for granted on a daily basis; one of these things is our health. Often, we don’t think twice about our food choices or our physical activeness, especially when we don’t necessarily feel the urgency to do so.
