President Trump Impeachment News

By Lilly Ernst The ongoing impeachment hearings have kept Washington D.C. tense and journalists busy. Each day new information is shared, sometimes in favor of Trump but often not. Overall, however, most average citizens do not really know who the individuals who have testified are, nor how accurate their information is.

He originally set sail on a voyage to Asia. Europeans not knowing a direct route to Asia, were expecting to run directly into it, but instead ran into the large chain of continents,

Caught Between Universes

By Kaitlin Kim Back in August 2019, Sony announced that Spider-Man would be leaving the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU), leaving fans in shock and distraught.  Spider-Man leaving the MCU was due to an argument between Disney and Sony about profit sharing. Disney wanted a fifty fifty co-financing deal with Sony over its future Spider-Man movies produced by Kevin Feige, especially after Spider-Man: Far From Home, released in July, became Sony’s all-time highest grossing film worldwide.
