Suspicious Free Wifi

     If you’ve gone to San Francisco, you may have noticed that certain areas have free wifi, called #SFWiFi. Free wifi makes me super #suspicious. I am literally so convinced that the free wifi is not as innocent as it seem. When an establishment has free wifi, it makes sense because free wifi will increase business. In fact, I love when places have free wifi, just not an entire city.             People are so excited by the free wifi, that they don’t even realize how sketchy it actually is. It’s like people forgot about the fact that the NSA goes…

Career Conversations: Michael Chin

What do you do as a physical therapist? I work in a sports orthopaedic center, so I work mainly with muscles, bones and joints. I see injuries as small as ankle sprains up to things like post-op knee replacements. I work on injuries through manual therapy or therapeutic exercise. What is manual therapy? Manual therapy is anything I can do with my hands to help with pain or mobility. For example, if the knee isn’t moving very well, I can do a mobilization of the knee or kneecap. What is the therapeutic exercise component? We design a sort of “exercise…

Careers of the Future

  As the end of the year approaches, many San Mateo High School students have begun to ask themselves the question we have been asking since our early days: “What do I want to be when I grow up?” Now, time is running out, as we are in fact “growing up” and must decide what to do with the rest of our lives. But the decision may be more difficult than it seems: as technology grows rapidly, the economy changes, and many of the occupations we will occupy someday do not even exist yet. Although it is difficult to imagine,…

What is the Origin of Black Friday?

Black Friday has been a tradition for years now. It is regarded as the beginning of the Christmas shopping season. It is the day after Thanksgiving and is one of the busiest times of the year retailers and shoppers. But where does the term Black Friday come from? When this tradition came about, shoppers were so eager to snatch the sales at shopping centers. As a result, the roads were mayhem and there were numerous traffic accidents and other altercations. In 1966, the Philadelphia Police Department came up with the term “Black Friday.” This day has been marked as the beginning…

Tired of making New Year’s resolutions and never completing your goals? Making a New Year’s resolution this year? Who are we kidding? According to Dan Diamond, a writer for Forbes, “only 8 percent of people achieve their New Year’s resolutions.” What is stopping us from achieving our goals? “We all strive to make New Year’s resolutions, but due to school or sometimes financial issues, it can be hard to keep up with them,” said Sandra Ayllon, junior. Are we taking up too much so that we cannot complete simple tasks like staying organized? Or are we simply lazy? Do we…
