This all shows how, when we really are all motivated, we can shift our lifestyles, our policies and our economy to overcome even the most challenging obstacles. We will, at some point, be on the other side of this pandemic. At that point, though, we shouldn’t simply go back to how we lived before. Instead, we should transition our fervor for overcoming COVID-19 to another paradigm-shifting issue that isn’t going away nearly as soon: climate change.
I love movies. Ever since I was in the fourth grade, my dream has been to make movies. It started with simply wanting to put videos on YouTube.

In this video, we asked students at UP for the most common stereotypes they hear about their major.
As college students, it’s easy to feel like we don’t have time to do much outside of school. We spend so many hours studying for tests, completing assignments, and working part-time jobs that many of us completely forgo exercise, whether it be a lack of time or a lack of energy.
"Justice League" is a mediocre movie (with a Rotten Tomatoes score of only 40 percent). With an supposed budget of more than $250 million, it lacks character development, and DC has a poor strategy for setting up Justice League with its previous movies.
This year, the Pilots still have a chance at the title. But since the championship game won't be played on Merlo, it can be a little hard to keep track. If you're lost, don't fret. Sports reporter Jamison White has the breakdown for you here.
