Let me start this off by saying that February 26, 2014 was not one of the most favored days of my life. I hate the cold. No wait, let me rephrase that; I hate the bitter cold with a fiery passion. So when I’m sitting in class caught up in my work and the fire alarm blares its annoying sound, I cri...

Crazy weather is an understatement for Riverside and Brookfield, Illinios, and many people were glad that the snow was starting to melt. Still, the snow has returned yet again on Tuesday night, and many believe that it’s the last breath of snow for winter. We’ve talked with our weather girls,...

ESPN learned its lesson never to interview Yannick Noah during his son’s game, especially when his son Joakim is playing out of his mind. While this so called “interview” was going on, the Madhouse on Madison was erupting in cheers that once they gave Derrick Rose. MVP!  MVP!  MVP! He is...

In the past few years, the technological atmosphere of RB has changed drastically. Students are using their phones throughout the building, in class and out, and although some teachers complain about it or confiscate the phones, that hasn’t yet made them go away. Now RB is on the threshold of a new ...

Riding a win streak in the second half of the season is the greatest thing you could do if you’re the Bulls. Momentum is going to be the key going down the stretch. If they have that, you never know what could happen come playoff time, especially with the signing of a sharp shooter like Jimmer Ferdette...

Graphic Novels – Worth your time

Graphic Novels… how to describe them… an illustrated novel? They’re like comic books, but slightly more sophisticated? Less girly versions of manga? They’re basically a book but with pictures, but not for kids (sometimes and often)? They’re superbly illustrated stories? Hm… Ah, bugger. Personally,...

An interview on Sports Center is hard to come by. You have to either be in a scandal or on a record breaking run or have just won a title. I guess Joakim Noah has been having a monster year. A near triple-double average and a second All Star appearance is not too shabby, but I wouldn’t call it record-breaking....

Inspired by all the little freshmen reading Feed by M. T. Anderson, the Wild Economist today has decided to talk about the costs, benefits, and such related to the endless web of technology we find ourselves caught in every day. Now, the feed can take many forms:  communication, advertising, or planne...

When you walk into RB using the new main entrance, you will find yourself confronted by a TV. Not much farther into the building is another TV, mounted on the wall. These TVs are on constantly; I have never once seen the first turned off, and I only occassionally see the second with a blank screen. And...

“We want to win, man, winning's important here." Joakim Noah is exactly right. He is having what most likely will be a second All-Star season. He is the undisputed leader of this banged up team who should not be winning.  With Rose and Deng gone to injury and trade, they should be tanking to move...

Welcome to the rebuilding process. It started officially when the Bulls waived new center Andrew Bynum, giving them $20 million worth of cap room and getting under the luxury tax.  What do we do with this? Luol Deng, traded to the Cleveland Cavaliers, was the best and most consistent player the...

What is a flipped classroom? Well, in case you missed Clarion's report last year, it’s a class where notes are taken at home as opposed to in class, so that in-class time can be spent on labs, projects, and discussions. Currently RB is host to a few flipped classes: AP Environmental Science and AP Bio...
