Warrior Weekly: XFL is Back

Aiden Chitkara

February 19, 2020

The XFL is back for the first time since 2001. The league originally died out in its first year for many reasons, some of which included poor ratings, expensive TV contracts and a lack of competitive football. Former commissioner Vince McMahon envisioned a league that crossed between the NFL and WWE....

Review: Halsey’s “Manic”

February 19, 2020

Let’s start with the songs on Halsey’s new album, “Manic,” that exemplify her classic style: “You should be sad.” With only one song on a 16-track-album connecting Halsey’s newest work to her older music, she left plenty of room to explore new genres and experiment with new lyrics. In...

The Patriots 2019-20 season concluded with an upset loss in the wild-card round. With this disappointment, the franchise finds its future up in the air. The greatest number of questions center around future Hall of Fame quarterback, Tom Brady, whose contract will officially expire at the beginning of...

February 7, 2020

Sportsmanship is defined as, “fair and generous behavior or treatment of others, especially in a sports contest.” But this definition covers only a small part of a bigger picture of what sportsmanship really means to an athlete. Recently, several WHS students, including myself, attended the Massachusetts...

Review: Harry Styles’ “Fine Line”

Alyssa Dickstein

February 6, 2020

Harry Styles released singles “Lights Up,” “Watermelon Sugar” and “Adore You” to gain publicity for his newest album “Fine Line.” By doing so, he failed to prepare the world for his new music. I believe that Styles might have released his three worst songs in anticipation for the Dec....

From the time I could walk, I identified strongly with my Italian heritage. For example, I learned to make bread with my nonna when I was seven years old, I memorized old Italian folk songs to sing with my family and I became used to restating my ethnic name, which nobody was able to pronounce. Even today, t...

After staying up all night studying for a test the next day, many students' go-to the next morning is a rejuvenating cup of coffee. The problem is, if you want coffee, you will have to either make your own or drive to one of the coffee shops around town, creating an array of possible morning-time dilemmas. Some...

The Impeachment of Donald Trump: Two Sides of the Argument

February 4, 2020

In this side-by-side opinion series, staff writers Atharva Weling and Jonathan Zhang tackle the impeachment process and its implications for the success of the Democratic agenda.

Opinion: Impeachment is the answer

Jonathan Zhang

February 4, 2020

Honesty and integrity, decision making that benefits the people and someone who listens to the people: these are the traits of a good leader. President Donald Trump is not a good leader and should no longer be tolerated. Honesty and integrity place a crucial role in leadership. As the CEO magazine tells us, “Honesty is a leader’s most valuable and most valued leadership quality; it serves as the gateway fo...

Opinion: Impeachment is not the answer

Atharva Weling

February 4, 2020

“The other thing: there's a lot of talk about Biden's son, that Biden stopped the prosecution, and a lot of people want to find out about that so whatever you can do with the Attorney General would be great. Biden went around bragging that he stopped the prosecution so if you can look into it… it ...

There’s a passage in "Chemistry," the debut novel of Chinese-American author Weike Wang, that goes: “Here is a joke a classmate tells me in middle school: When an Asian baby is born her parents hold up two signs, ‘Doctor’ and ‘Doctor,’ and the baby must choose. By now, I have heard man...

Yelling ‘Kobe’ after you shoot your water bottle into the recycling bin will never be the same. Earlier this week, a legend died far too young. On the morning of Sunday, Jan. 26, NBA legend Kobe Bryant and his thirteen year old daughter Gianna Bryant were killed in a helicopter crash. In total, nine...
