I am one of thousands of Spanish kids that leave home to study abroad in the U.S. or Great Britain because they've been taught English from a young age.

Week 13 is over in the NFL, and it seems to me that the New England Patriots still haven’t figured it out. Even in the Sunday Night Football game against the Houston Texans when the Patriots only lost by eight, it took them three quarters to finally wake up. It is no secret that the Patriots are...

After seven albums, Coldplay has decided to try something new in album No. 8, “Everyday Life.” It’s refreshing. It’s different. It’s a change for the band, but even though it changed its genre, it did not change the topic it sings about: tragedy. In the past, Coldplay had a very specific sound:...

Whether your glass is half full or half empty, everyone could use a little more positivity in their life. Nobody enjoys being around that person.

To the average voter on the left of the aisle, the fear of another four years with Trump as our commander-in-chief often materializes whenever the subject of the 2020 election comes up.
