Spyro, a 3D platformer collectathon developed by Insomniac Games was remastered lovingly from the ground up by Toys for Bob on November 13, 2018. A collectathon is a genre of video games popular in the 1990’s that specializes in gathering different sets of collectables in order to advance the game and or boost completion percent.
The game as a whole
Spyro Reignited Trilogy, primarily is a graphic update. Everything else has stayed the same, from enemy placement to level design. But, that doesn’t stop Toys for Bob from going above and beyond to make the definitive way to experience Spyro. The most obvious thing is the cosmetic update. It is gorgeous with a colorful, cartoonish look that fits in with and builds on the original’s pre-existing beauty. It doesn't just stop at that either. The game extends to the music even. The originals had the skill of composer Stewart Copeland who returns with some new music and remixes of originals. Since there are now two tracks for every level, players have been given the option to swap between new and old. The gameplay is the exact same. But, Toys for Bob were able to perfectly recreate the physics of the originals being floaty yet precise.
Spyro the Dragon
Gnasty Gnorc has released a spell freezing all of the dragons into crystal after being insulted and mocked by Lindar (one of the dragons). Luckily Spyro and his dragonfly friend Sparx were able to avoid the spell because they were smaller than the other dragons. Now he needs to travel through the five dragon realms, free all of the 80 dragons captured, find the 12 dragon eggs stolen, and recover all of the 14,000 treasure. Of all these things to collect, the dragons are the priority. These will be found in levels that are featured in the different (previously mentioned) dragon realms. Those being the Artisans, Peace Keepers, Magic Crafters, Beast Makers, and the Dream Weavers. The gameplay involves going into a level, exploring the area, finding and retrieving the collectables, and finding and getting to the exit. This allows for a open world approach to level design.
Spyro 2: Ripto’s Rage!
Due to an extended period of rainfall, Spyro and Sparx decide that they need a vacation. Then they notice a portal to Dragon Shores and travel through it. To their surprise, they land in a realm known as Avalar because the Professor, Elora the Faun, Zoe the Fairy, and Hunter the Cheetah, had redirected the portal to bring them there instead. After a confusing moment, they encountered a dictator named Ripto, who was enraged that the residents had brought a dragon to Avalar. In order to defeat Ripto, Spyro needs to collect the 14 Talismans and 64 Orbs. The gameplay revolves around going into a level, receiving a task from the local people, completing the task and receiving a talisman, exploring, find a secondary task, complete the task, keep finding and completing secondary tasks to keep receiving Orbs and then leave the level. This new level design accounts for a more linear style of play.
Spyro: Year of the Dragon
The Dragon Realms were celebrating an important event: the Year of the Dragon Festival. Every twelve years during this time, the Fairies deliver dragon eggs to the Dragon Realms, which will become the next generation of Dragons. In this year, the Fairies delivered 150 eggs to the Dragon Realms. The Dragons celebrated until they fell over from exhaustion and slept. While they were asleep, a mysterious rabbit girl named Bianca came with an army of Rhynocs to steal the dragon eggs. Now it’s Spyros’ job to collect all 150 eggs. The game is similar to Ripto’s Rage and Spyro 1 with eggs rewarded via exploration and task completion, but it also has the inclusion of different playable characters adding new levels and way of traversal.
Overall, Spyro Reignited Trilogy is the best way to play an outstanding series of games. Even though the game is relatively the same, it still can be enjoyed by both newcomers and veterans alike. With it’s already tight and fun gameplay and now with a modern style, Spyro Reignited Trilogy deserves a 8/10

After middle school, all Cornerstone eighth graders move onto high schools across Spring Branch ISD and other Houston-area high schools. There are many steps that must be completed by the students prior to their transition into high school and the emotional response to the process varies from student to student, but before they leave they must choose an endorsement. It is important for 8th graders to consider what they want to do in college, as well as their abilities and interests. "Yes, I'm worried that I won't have any friends, it's scary. I am going to Memorial High School which is much larger than Cornerstone, which worries me, but overall I am excited, but terrified," states Joanie Sanders, an eighth grader at Cornerstone Academy.
To add a new dimension to Cornerstone’s dance program, director Jacquana Johnson created the CSA Competition Team in September 2018. The competition team is open to only 7th and 8th graders that are in the dance class. To be considered for the team, they have to receive two teacher recommendations, be passing all their classes and have a successful score in the audition. The team performed at the Rockets vs. Orlando Magic game on January 27th along with 32 other teams from the Houston area. The team will be competing in the HTE Spirit Competition at Magnolia West High School on February 9th, the MA Dance Competition at Pearland High School on February 16th, and the MDDT Competition at Klein Forest High School on February 23rd. The current dance team is made up of eight girls, 8th grader Anna Kovacs and 7th grader,s Jocelynn Carrillo, Gabby Cuellar, Brooke Miers, Meah Montez, Natalie Murat, Kira Sledge, and Ally Starr.
"We learn how to communicate with our dance teammates, it's really fun," states Jocelynn Carrillo.
"We learn new choreography for competitions or we practice over and over to clean up dances," says Kira Sledge.
When asked what she has learned during the process of creating the competition team, Mrs. Johnson said it is important to have "adequate planning, being thorough and detailed in teaching... It's harder for me to teach styles I haven't taught in a while. It's definitely harder to choreograph." This is a great opportunity for people in dance to get out of their comfort zone and try something new. To be in the regular dance class, students audition in either the summer or the second day of school.
Johnson said, "I teach a combination to the kids and they have to execute it, so I look at the flexibility and how well they pick up choreography and how well they execute that choreography." Recently the team won 1st place for Team Lyrical, hip-hop, and pom at the HTE dance and spirit competition!
Many students are worried about the transition, but first they must choose an endorsement. Endorsements can help guide your course selections, the choices are STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math), Arts and Humanities, Business and Industry, Public Service, and Multidisciplinary Studies. Choosing an endorsement helps students guide their studies and get them to where they need to be for college. For example, if someone wants to be an actor or actress, they would choose the Arts and Humanities endorsement, or if they want to be a police officer or a lawyer they can choose Public Service endorsement.8th graders also have the choice of taking classes at the Guthrie Center, the district’s vocational education center.

Some of the classes students can take include film making, photography, criminal justice, agriculture, graphic design, cosmetology, and many more. The Guthrie center also gives high schoolers a chance to earn real-world experiences with internships at law firms, hotels, and many other local businesses. But even though high school gives students more opportunities, high school can also be scary, especially at the beginning of freshman year. In the beginning, many students feel alone due to their friends going to another school. After a few weeks, students begin to settle down, they know their schedules, and they have found their crowd. High school is a time to learn about yourself and to reach for the stars.

Passion Based Learning Projects 2019
Passion Based Learning (P.B.L.), is a chance for students to research what they are passionate about, and it’s the main focus of Cornerstone academic life during the first week back from winter break Some people used their projects to raise awareness about social issues like mental health, racism, the economy and the environment. Others showed their love of animals, such as Joanie Sanders presentation on the cruelty of animal-derived products, or Whitney Nieto’s studies of dog breeds, or Audrey Mock’s studies of domesticated cats. Many students did their project on food such as Nathan Seelig, who studied the science behind making a souffle, Kari Marques who studied the effect of food on cultures, or Kirby Crow who studied cakes throughout the ages and actually made cakes from different time periods.
Other people did their projects on sports such as Pierce Leverett’s look at basketball’s evolution or Rebecca Russo’s research on the three most underrated sports.Technology such as Colin O’Grady’s study on the future of technology or Sam Downs study of DMX were also very interesting. Some students went above and beyond and created a project that was a work of art such as Evara Ripple’s illustrations of myths or Sarah Garcia's paintings. Some people used their projects to think about future careers such as Mia Pancioli who studied the history of OBGYN’s. People also studied how society is affected by different fashion trends like Sara Harp’s study of how “fast fashion” can affect the economy, Olivia Koepke’s study of fashion through the ages or Patricia Muzny’s studies on body image issues with the rise of social media.

Trump's Feud With the Press
“dismayed” with how the media was treating them and making it an endless “game of ‘gotcha’” when in their mind, they were generously taking the time to come out and take questions about their agenda.
Spicer ended up resigning in June and was replaced by Sarah Huckabee Sanders as the White House Press Secretary. Relations between Sanders and the press are not much better. In Sanders’ defense, the press has arguably not treated her very well. At the annual White House Correspondents Dinner on April 28, 2018, a place where journalists and celebrities gather in Washington D.C. usually to make fun of politicians and celebrities, comedian Michelle Wolf had some very harsh words for Sanders. Wolf said about Sanders, "she burns facts, and then she uses that ash to create a perfect smoky eye." Wolf received immediate backlash, and Sanders’ relationship with the press became a lot uglier.
On November 8, 2018, just after the midterm elections where Democrats won control of the House of Representatives, President Trump got into a heated argument with CNN reporter Jim Acosta. Trump has disliked CNN for a long time, labeling it as “Fake News” and repeatedly saying at rallies, “CNN Sucks.” President Trump ended up calling Acosta a very “rude, and terrible” person after he asked about many controversial issues including President Trump’s characterization of the press as the “enemy of the people.” Shortly afterwards, Sanders announced that Acosta’s credentials and press pass would be suspended, banning him from the White House. The White House claimed that he was banned for “placing his hand on a young women (a White House intern).” Sanders provided a video that showed him doing that however, most people have come to the conclusion that he did not do that and that the video was clearly doctored. Many experts have concluded that the video had been edited by an associate of Alex Jones, a known right wing conspiracy theorist. One of these experts is Hany Farid, a scholar at Dartmouth College who analyzed the video. “If you look at original, higher-quality videos from other vantage points, you can more clearly see that while there was some contact between the reporter and intern, he did not strike her as his hand comes down,” says Farid. Media outlets such as the New York Times also found that before Acosta was banned, “Infowars”, Alex Jones’ media sight, had started posting videos with headlines such as, “Did Jim Acosta Assault a Woman?”
On January 17, 2018, President Trump tweeted out the “Fake News Awards” in which he ranked stories that, in his opinion, displayed the most fake news. Trump has repeatedly claimed that no president has ever been treated worse than him. A poll from Gallup showed that 62% of Americans believe that the media is full of “misinformation” however, the poll didn’t give specifics about media bias. In a poll by Ipsos, results showed that 44% of Republicans believe that President Trump should have the authority to close media outlets, compared to just 12% of Democrats. In a study released by the Washington Post, 90% of the media’s coverage of Trump was negative. Another Washington Post statistic showed that President Obama had eight times more positive coverage than President Trump. Here at CSA, Alex Borg, an 8th grader, shared his opinion about the media’s treatment of President Trump. “Trump has every right to be mad because all the ‘liberal media’ has done is shun him. It’s truly a disgrace. Everyone knows that they aim to elect Democrats, but the way they treat Trump is unheard of.” When asked about how Trump has referred to the press as the “enemy of the people,” he responded, “When they (the press) are so biased, I think that they’re absolutely the enemy of the people.” When questioned about whether the way Trump has treated female journalists, such as Megyn Kelly and Mika Brzezinski, is right, Borg chuckled and said, “Only one of them… Mika Brzezinski. She absolutely deserves it because of how unfair she has been (to Trump and Republicans).” Max Lane, also an 8th grader at CSA, disagrees with Borg. “Though the media isn’t always fair, Trump is definitely exaggerating when he says that no one has been treated worse. The media has always been tough on presidents, and it’s time for Trump to stop acting like a child!” In a schoolwide CSA poll, 39% said they somewhat or strongly approved of the way that President Trump was doing his job, 40% said they somewhat or strongly disapproved, and the rest of the school selected the undecided/no opinion option. The survey also showed that nearly 40% of people at Cornerstone thought that the media had been extremely unfair to President Trump, while just over 10% said that the media had been extremely fair to him. About 20% were solidly in the middle. It is clear that this issue has Americans divided, and that this conflict is nowhere near ending.

Ever since Republican President Donald Trump began his campaign for president of the United States, he and the media have had an extremely contentious and rough relationship that, at times, has caused major debate and controversy. Though tensions between journalists and the president are not unusual, many people can agree that the anger and resentment President Trump has shown towards most of the press has risen to a whole new level. His supporters point out that this is only because of how unfair and biased the media has been against him.
When President Trump announced his intentions to run for president on June 16, 2015, nearly everyone, including almost all of the media, treated it as a joke. Almost no one believed that he actually had a chance, and many journalists asserted that he was not serious about becoming president. Throughout the campaign, many other incidents between Trump and reporters would make headlines.
On August, 6, 2018, during a primary debate, President Trump got into an argument with then-Fox News reporter, Megyn Kelly. Kelly questioned President Trump about many of his controversial remarks about women he disliked in which he referred to them as “pigs, dogs, slobs, and disgusting animals.” When Trump falsely claimed that he had only done that to one woman, she pressed him to speak more truthfully, leading to a long argument. Trump has arguably disliked Kelly, ever since. At one point, he tweeted “Wow, @megynkelly really bombed tonight. People are going wild on Twitter! Funny to watch.” Trump has also tweeted and retweeted statements calling Kelly a “bimbo” and a “lightweight.” In an interview with CNN’s Don Lemon, Trump said, "She had blood coming out of her eyes, or blood coming out of her wherever," referring to her menstrual cycle. Trump’s critics used these incidents to quickly jump on him for his choice words while his supporters came to his defense, and stated that Kelly had treated him very unfairly. Trump also went after Mika Brzezinski, the host of MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” and referred to her as “low I.Q. Crazy Mika,” and had said that she was “bleeding badly,” referring to a facelift, a procedure people have to change their appearance.
Trump would come under fire for other feuds with journalists such as mocking Serge Kovaleski, a disabled reporter. On October 7, 2016, an Access Hollywood Tape, a recording showing Trump bragging about sexually assaulting and making lewd comments about women, was released. Trump would go on and attack how much the media was focusing on the tape, as opposed to writing about the alleged corruptions and scandals of his opponent, Democratic nominee, Hillary Clinton. On August 14, 2016, Trump tweeted “I am not only fighting Crooked Hillary, I am fighting the dishonest and corrupt media… People get it!”
When Trump assumed office, his rocky relationship with the media did not improve. Trump’s first press secretary, Sean Spicer, did not get along very well with the press. Just after Trump was inaugurated as president, Sean Spicer made a false claim that Donald Trump’s inauguration crowds were bigger than Barack Obama’s. Even so, Spicer continued with the claim that Trump’s crowds were bigger. Spicer would also falsely claim that Adolf Hitler, the leader of Germany during World War II, did not use chemical weapons. In a testy exchange about President Trump’s proposed travel ban, one reporter asked Spicer, “Is he (Trump) confused, or are you (Spicer) confused?” After these incidents, President Trump suggested that press briefings would stop because of how unfair he believed the media was treating him and Spicer. Spicer told the press that he and the president were

Thousands of federal employees struggled with major financial hardships during the month-long partial government shutdown that began on December 22, 2018, because Congress and President Trump disagreed on funding for a southern border wall. A partial government shutdown is when many or most government agencies have already been funded by other legislation, but there remain some areas that still need funding. Some agencies that were affected by the government shutdown were the Departments of Interior, Agriculture, Commerce, Defense, Education, and Energy. When a government shutdown occurs,the most dramatic effect is felt by the federal employees because they are not getting paid.People from both sides of the political spectrum have strong opinions about the shutdown and who is to blame.
According to 8th grader Jacob Smith, "I think that there is a lot of blame to go around on both sides, that a lot of people are being very stubborn. I think that partially it's the Democrats fault."
Lane Leighton, 6th grader, feels differently. "I feel like it’s a little ridiculous that the president chose to shutdown the government when that's a bunch of people's incomes and most people are living paycheck to paycheck. They also might not be able to support their families, and it's hard to see that the president who is running America would choose to do such a thing and harm all those people in that way."
On January 25, 2019, the government shutdown came to an end. The president signed a bill opening the government for three weeks until February 15, 2019, to allow for further negotiation. All federal employees received a paycheck with back pay. Hopefully, an agreement can be reached by February 15th, otherwise, federal employees may have to suffer even more.
The Wall is Closing in on Trump (Op/Ed)
Obviously, better border control is vital to our national security, but finding the funding and support for a wall has proven to to be harder to secure than President Trump thought. Building a new border wall would cost an estimated 70 billion dollars to build and 150 million dollars to maintain each year, but it will also cause immeasurable and possibly irrevocable damage to the environment. Many species of animals migrate through the border and in order to build the wall, large parts of Big Bend National Park, a refuge for animals and people alike, would be damaged by construction and the infrastructure required for a wall.

Karate is a martial art where a person uses their hands, feet, and other body parts to defend themselves. A person can also use a block, which is a movement to block someone else’s move, to defend them as well.
Karate came to Japan in 1905 when weapons were banned on the Okinawa Islands. King Shō Shin, who was a king of the Ryukyu Kingdom, is believed to have put the ban on weapons.
Before Karate came to the Okinawa Islands, a Buddhist monk named Bodhidharma brought Karate from India to China and later it was passed onto new cultures like the people of the Okinawa Islands. Soon top students on the Okinawa Islands went to go teach Karate at universities in Japan, but later Karate became more popular, and new styles were created.
A lot of people practice karate, but there are other types of martial arts as well. A popular type is Taekwondo. The difference between Karate and Taekwondo is Karate uses hand strikes and Taekwondo uses kicking techniques.
April Cunningham, the founder, owner, and manager of Houston Karate Academy is a 10th Degree Black Belt and has been in martial arts for 52 years.
When Cunningham was younger she went to watch her uncle do karate, and that is what she decided she wanted to do. When she used to go to competitions, her attitude was always focused on “Winning! Nothing can ever touch the feeling when you win!” When she opened her own dojo (karate school) and her students won competitions, it felt just as good as winning herself.
Karate is an excellent sport that can take people far. People can win medals and go to competitions, and next year in 2020, Karate will debut as an Olympic sport.

One of the animals the wall would affect is the Texan Jaguar that migrates south from Texas through the border to Mexico’’.’’ Building the wall could push this already endangered animal to the brink of extinction. The current border fence is already isolating and trapping the jaguar and other animals, making a mess out of the environment. Big Bend National Park lies right along the Rio Grande, even sometimes tourists will swim across the river to Mexico. Building a wall would destroy many historical sites along the border endangering the wildlife inhabiting the National Park. " We need to take care of our environment because it takes care of us'' states 8th grader Sara Garcia. We obviously need a system to handle immigration in the United States, but a wall is not the best choice for us or for the environment.

Danger Lies Beneath
Federal Employees Feel the Pain
Ever since the presidential election in 2016, Donald Trump has used the promise of a wall on the southwestern border between Mexico and Texas as the basis of his campaign, and most Americans only focus on the political controversies of the wall, but the wall wouldn’t only block people from crossing the border but animals too, causing native species to find new paths south for winter or stay in Texas which dangers many animals. Along the southwestern border between Texas and Mexico, nearly 700 miles of fence already exists, but the fence only stops vehicles in certain areas, leaving the border crossing open for foot traffic.

parks. Lurking beneath Yellowstone lies something that could hold a threat to all Americans and even the world. Below the beauty of the wildlife is an active volcano, one with a name rare name that few other volcanoes have been given. It holds the power to spew out miles of ash and lava across a wide expanse of states, wreaking havoc worldwide.
The clues and leftover fossils left behind from the last eruption (6,400,000 years ago) show that many organisms far from the eruption spot had perished under rock and ash. The caldera caused destruction thousands of years ago, and it is harming the planet even now, with animals living near it falling dead due to poisonous gases being released from the constant rising magma. Fortunately, NASA has plans to stop the volcano from making any more progress. They plan to drill holes near the caldera and shoot high pressured water into them trying to cool down the magma and slow its movement. However, this still leaves a question lingering, what would happen if it ever did erupt?
The U.S would be its bullseye, leaving many Americans dead and both water and food sources polluted or wiped off the planet. The ash would spread out everywhere, blocking the suns radiation and leading the world into a volcanic winter. The weather would be destructive and livestock and vegetation would not survive in the harsh cold.
Although the thought of these things may leave people biting their nails, rest assured that the event may not even happen for decades to come.
With NASA’s plan and the many other scientists studying the volcano, the chances of it ever erupting again are low, putting the mountain of magma on a dying cycle.

Computer programming languages began in the 1950s and have developed into many languages, all with the numbers 1 and 0. Programming is the action or method of writing computer programs. Most users do not think about the programming that makes the wonderful technology they use. Many people don't care about what is in the device as long as it operates. Computer programming has adapted and grown so that it is easier to fix problems and potential viruses and create new technology. The first programming languages were designed to communicate directions to a computer. Programmers had to test the computer's capability, so they tried multiple techniques but none of these worked. It took so long because technology was new and the programmers had to understand what the computer was going through and how the new tech works. Bohm’s language had the creation of a full Meta-Circular Compiler, that is a translation mechanism of a programming language, written in that same language. Tanner Ramey, CSA 7th grader says, “I know that my device is protected because I haven't reached the point to where my device has a virus and any critical obstacles, and I pay for something where it monitors my actions and any movements that need to be removed or informs me if there is a virus.” Programmer always get better at making new devices, but the knowledge of this tech get stronger every time it's made or practiced. No one would have the devices and technology we rely on in our daily lives without programming.

Hackers, both with good or bad intentions are the past, present, and future of technology because they test for vulnerabilities for major companies, hack organizations, and do what they love most...hack. The power of a computer hacker is unimaginable. Every single second someone is advancing the ability of technology which means, hackers are constantly improving even faster at finding ways to break into systems or creating more protections a company or even a single device user may need. Hackers can have both good or bad intentions depending on who they are working for. If hackers did not exist, technology might not be created as secure as it is today. Meaning, if there was not someone to try to get into someone's security, there would not be people trying to defend it at the rate that they are today. Because of hackers with bad intentions, people that use technology, whether it be a smartphone, laptop, or even a gaming console may have to take a few extra precautions to make sure that they are not the next victims of cybercrime.While there are hackers that mean harm, there are also hackers that have good intentions and want to do good for society. To explain, most major companies that are web-based, have to have someone to hack into their system and test to see if there are weaknesses in their security. If there are, vulnerability hackers can report back to the company about the problems in their security. If you were a hacker in today’s time, honestly, would you do good or bad?
