The Trial of Trump

Written by Guest Author: Oliver Pope 11th February 2021 It has been over three weeks since Joe Biden was sworn in as the 46th President of the United States. Since this time, former President Trump has mostly fallen under the radar - remaining banished from the mainstream social and news media. However, all that is…

The Uyghur Genocide

It’s not stopping. The Chinese government continue to plead their innocence and take any means necessary to conceal any illegal activity in Xinjiang. However, the world is starting to discover the horrific crimes and human rights violations in the Uyghur detention camps. One country calling out China is unlikely to make a difference, but a…

GameStop: Reddit to Reality

Usually, I try to develop catchy introductions for my articles, to hopefully try and convince you to read the blog post. But, today, I can’t come up with anything that has more of an impact that these 4 words: I LOVE THIS STORY. To summarise what has occurred in the last week, a chain of…

Change the Date

We talk and talk and talk. Every year. The same discussions, the same arguments, and the same emotions. Then, we get to January 27th, and no one cares anymore. We need to stop the talking, as it achieves nothing and only polarises people more. We need to turn that talking into quick action. January 26th,…

A Normal Inauguration?

Surely not! After everything that has occurred since the election, a ‘normal’ inauguration seemed incredibly unlikely. However, the inauguration ceremony was mostly peaceful and Joe Biden’s first day as President demonstrated that he’s here to make changes, not just revel in his newfound power. Joe Biden’s inauguration as the 46th President of the United States…

2 Million

When numbers get higher and higher, they become more and more meaningless and incomprehensible. The numbers lose value, and the shock element that might have been present at the start begins to fade away. The difference between 2 million and 1 million seems oddly small. Or maybe that’s just me? It’s hard for my brain…

Trump Impeached…Again

It was never going to be a peaceful voyage into the sunset for Trump’s Presidential term. The fireworks have started (if they ever stopped) and with less than a week until Biden’s inauguration, the chaos is set to continue. Yesterday, the US House of Representatives impeached Donald Trump after finding him responsible for inciting the…

Let’s Talk About Vaping

Are you really a cool teenager if you don’t vape? Are you really part of the popular group if you don’t inhale vapour and blow the smoke out into the air? ‘Vaping’ has become a worldwide trend, however; with limited information available regarding the practice, how should we approach this behaviour? A crime, a strong…

Me vs The World

15 seconds. Short sentences. Images and diagrams. That’s all that our brains can consume in one sitting. The days of long articles and YouTube videos over 10 minutes are coming to an end, overtaken by memes and 10 second Tik Tok’s. This has forced content creators and writers, like me, to deeply look into what…
