Who’s the better rapper: Lil Baby or NBA Youngboy? This is a popular debate topic amongst BL upper school students. People are trying to come to a consensus on who the better rapper is.
Opening in 2017, Mt. Washington’s Woodrow’s Bar-B-Que has already grown to be a notable restaurant that’s less than ten minutes from Boys’ Latin. Its 4.8 star Google rating and the reviews, for the majority, have nothing less than good things to say about this southern-style eatery.
Over the past several years at BL, teachers have become much more strict about their policies regarding cell phones in the classroom. When I was a freshman four years ago, there were never as many guidelines and restrictions as there are today. Sure, there were a few classes where teachers required us to put all our phones into a bin or onto a table, but it was never as widely enforced as it is today.
Many students at Boys’ Latin have diverse tastes in music and various ways of finding new songs to listen to. Whether it be rap or country, hip-hop or 80’s, BL students have always been interested in a wide variety of music genres. But music streaming services such as Spotify, Apple Music, and Soundcloud have changed the way students find and share music as they get older.
Last month Nike teamed up with Colin Kaepernick to make a 30th anniversary commercial that would air on the NFL’s opening night, September 6. Kaepernick made national headlines in 2016 when he started protesting police brutality against the black community by kneeling during the National Anthem. His actions sparked a national debate about the proper way to respect the flag, a discussion that has been reignited by Nike’s latest commercial, which was presented to be inspirational to young people, motivating them be the best person they can be.
