Don’t Let Your Flu Fight Back

By: Hope H

Do you have a fever? Do you feel weak? Do you feel nausea (vomiting)? If so, you might have the flu. The flu is coming back and it’s coming back stronger than ever. Everyone has questions about how we should avoid the flu.

We all have people telling us to wash our hands with soap and water all the time, but what we don’t realize is that by washing our hands we can prevent many diseases. Another thing we don’t realize is that hand sanitizer doesn’t kill the germs, it just strips away the outer oil on the skin, preventing from germs inside your body to come to the surface. Warm water and soap kills all the germs rather than just the harmless germs. Also, according to our school nurse, we should also get the flu shot and cover our sneezes with our elbows to help prevent the flu.

Many people share makeup, food, drinks, and many other items that come in contact with your face. Many viruses are spread through the mucus and saliva of an infected person, meaning that friend you shared a soda with might have given you the flu, or vice versa.

All in all we need to watch what we touch and share with others, also just wash your hands.

Cytus

By: Kiersten M

Do you like playing games with music and excitement? The game Cytus is a one player music game. The game is about robots and human’s memories. The story’s main character is a women named Vanessa. She was the only robot to have her memory transferred from her human self. She did the memory transferring because there was a disease with no know antidote that wiped out half of the human race. In one of the Cytus chapters, it is stated in Vanessa’s diary that “it’s a fortune or miss fortune to take part of the memory transferring?! I would live in such a way when everyone close to me passes a way” – Vanessa.

The total people that play the game in San Antonio is 403,616, I am included in this number. The total people that play the game in the world are about 5,000,000-10,000,000. About 11,270 people dislike the game in San Antonio. The cost for the whole game is $1.99, which is less than 5 Night’s at Freddy’s.

Cytus was developing the 1 million project. It is where every 1 million people playing the game get to unlock one chapter for free and in the demo version you get 10 chapters. Since the 1 million project is done, there is now 13 chapters. Each chapter has 10 songs. Some of the DJ’s that create the music are DJ Mashiro, DJ Rabbit, DJ Maxtechnika & 3RZV.N. My favorite is The Ricochet.

In my opinion I would give this game the rate of 5 stars!  What would your rating be?
