SHEIN's Fast Fashion Empire
Jules Conners, News Editor • April 23, 2023

SHEIN is one of the world’s most popular fashion sites, and also one of the most problematic. The Chinese-based company is known for its highly corrupt, unethical business enterprise: creating and selling cheap, unsustainable, and frankly illegal fashion.  SHEIN’S footprint stalks around Boulder...

You're Doing "Indian Food" Wrong
Saisree Kumar, Features Editor • January 7, 2023

A popular trend that's taken over my “For-You” page recently has been Indian food virgins rating Indian food, and so far, I have not seen a single positive TikTok. It seems odd that there isn't one, but what infuriates me is their approach to showing their distaste for the cuisine.  I don't exactly...

The Great Downfall of Pep
Jules Conners, News Editor • January 7, 2023

The pep rally: an awkward, problematic waste of time at Boulder High. We lose valuable class time to accommodate these long rallies.
