A WWE style brawl occurred today in “malfunction junction”. Instead of students, the teachers and staff took part in an intense academic smackdown. Football, improper grammar and lack of knowledge lit the match to an unforgettable fight. The teachers’ pent-up aggression from COVID-19 came through full force.

Reality TV in general typically profits off the humiliation and exploitation of its stars and contestants. TLC, unlike other networks, uses a methodical marketing formula based on the success of their past shows. Fatphobia, poverty and the exploitation of children plague the network’s shows. Instead of developing new ideas and shows, TLC continues to use obese people, poor people and children to thrive as a network.

At the tail end of the pandemic, workers feel fed up with pay and working conditions. This led to the Great Resignation across various careers and jobs. Restaurants, for example, have gone understaffed and frequently close because of an influx of customers with no staff to serve them. This not only affects small businesses but large corporations as well.

Today marks the twenty-year anniversary of 9/11. The extensive death and destruction triggered an enormous U.S. effort to combat terrorism.

The dystopian genre lacks originality due to the repetitiveness of plots, character arcs and themes. Young adult dystopias contain a few tropes that become overdone, and in the process, lose their uniqueness. Most films share the same tropes and do not show diversity amid struggle. Everything in these films conveniently falls in place for the main character and this takes away from the realistic nature.

At a certain point in life, it must end. Those we leave behind will grieve, mourn and eventually adapt to a new way of life. However, people should not feel pressure from society to only feel the emotions listed in the five stages of grief .   “Put simply, grief is the price we pay for love, and a natural consequence of forming emotional bonds to people, projects and possessions. All that we value we will someday lose,” CEO of Australian Health Centre for Grief and Bereavement, Chris Hall MAPS, said.
