Revolution, Part One: My Epiphany

Revolution, Part One: My Epiphany

Liliana Owen, Journalist

February 6, 2020

I had the most ridiculous epiphany when I was about seven. I remember the moment as if it was crystallized in time. As if it was yesterday. I was laying in my bed —I had the top in a bunk bed. I was in the bedroom that my sister now has for her own. The wall color, if I remember co...

Orlando Bloom was born during an age when dyslexia was seen as a learning disability. He had a hard time in school. He learned what they told him to learn, but it didn’t stick. He tried really hard to get to the level they wanted him to be at, but he was always one step behind. He fe...

January 15, 2020

A question was sent out to about twenty-five random Burgers: "Is private chat good? Is it bad? Why or why not?"

Energy Profiling: The Personality System That Revolutionized My Family

Liliana Owen, Journalist

October 22, 2019

About four years ago, my family was kind of a mess. We weren’t very nice and understanding of each other, and we were being pushed to do stuff that was not very accepting of ourselves. Quite frankly, I did not love myself very much and did not accept my personality. I was constantly being pushed to be that social butterfly, the one that is friends with everyone. At that time, I had almost no friends. Social events were torture. I felt so left out, so alone, so unwanted by my peers. Then it all changed when my mom discovered and introduced my five siblings and me to Energy Profiling, a personality system created by Carol Tuttle.

Gun Control: The REAL Problem

Gun Control: The REAL Problem

Treysen Anderson, Guest Writer

October 8, 2019

Alright. I’ll humor you. Let’s say it is the fault of the guns that these people are being murdered. From mass school shootings to gang brawls to hate deaths, in all of these cases the guns can and should be blamed for the bloodshed. After all, 14,000 people were killed in gun related incidents last year. Let us restrict, establish gun-free zones against, and even ban guns. And, following this same principle, all road fatalities brought to pass by texting and driving can and should be blamed on the phone. 40,000 people were killed by car wrecks, and roughly half of those were caused by phones, leading to a grand total of 20,000 deaths due to phones. However, in these cases, the phone is merely ignored and we continue on, warning and encouraging our communities to use their phones wisely, when we all know that phones should be restricted and we should establish phone-free zones to protect our citizens.
