Prudential Spirit of Community Awards Program Invites Entries From Young Volunteers

Prudential Spirit of Community Awards Program Invites Entries From Young Volunteers
The Prudential Spirit of Community Awards program annually honors middle and high school students across the U.S. for helping to improve their communities through volunteer activities. The program's goals are to applaud young people who already are making a positive difference in their towns and neighborhoods, and to inspire others to think about how they might contribute to their communities.

The awards, sponsored by Prudential Financial, Inc. in partnership with the National Association of Secondary School Principals, honor outstanding community service performed during the previous year by young people in grades 5 through 12 at the local, state, and national levels.

To be eligible, a young person must be in grades 5-12 as of November 1, 2011; be a legal resident of any U.S. state or Washington, D.C.; have engaged in a volunteer activity that occurred at least partly during the twelve months prior to the date of application; and submit a completed application to a school principal or the head of an officially designated local organization by the November 1 deadline.

Participating schools and local organizations will select local honorees in November and present them with Certificates of Achievement. All local honorees are then reviewed by a state-level judging committee, which will name the top two candidates from each state and the District of Columbia — one high school student and one middle level student -— as state honorees in February 2012. State honorees will each receive $1,000 awards, engraved silver medallions, and an all-expense-paid trip (with parent) to Washington, D.C., in May 2012 for recognition events. Runners-up at the state level will receive bronze medallions or Certificates of Excellence.

In Washington, a national selection committee will name ten of the one hundred and two state honorees as America's top youth volunteers of the year. These national honorees will each receive additional awards of $5,000, gold medallions, crystal trophies for their nominating schools or organizations, and $5,000 grants from the Prudential Foundation for the nonprofit, charitable organizations of their choice.

Deadline for Pomegranate Student Film Fest Extended to April 15th

I wanted to be sure that you know about our student film festival sponsored by the Pomegranate Foundation on the theme of genocide and holocaust awareness.

This student festival uses the month of April as inspiration (which has Holocaust memorial day, Rwandan and Armenian genocide commemoration days). The films do not need to be about genocide, as such. They can be about any form of intolerance -- including bullying, racism and discrimination.

We have recently visited Beverly HS, Grant HS, Olive Pierce (Ramona), Carson, Foundations Community School, and Hollywood HS to talk about this festival. We have emphasized to teachers and students that the subject does not have to be genocide/holocuast as such -- it can include bullying and any other form of discrimination. Students can team up, and there is a category for teacher submissions as well.

The deadline is April 15. Online submission only. Three minutes or less. Multiple formats. We will have a Finals Screening event (like LASMF) in May.

Our jury includes Bill Yahraus (USC Film School), Rocky Lang (producer of White Squall, directed by Ridley Scott), Marti Tippens Murphy (Facing History and Ourselves), and Professor Don Miller from USC, who is involved in various projects in Rwanda commemorating the genocide there.

We would be happy to visit your class to pitch the festival and discuss possible topics. Carla Garapedian is a working documentary filmmaker who has made a number of high-profile human rights films for British TV. Carla always like to meet students. Although she's based in London, she is in Encino for the next six months, working on her next feature film.

Mass Media: Impact on the World Apparent and Indisputable

By: Ben Doupé


In a world where much is up to debate and speculation, one thing that stands as undeniable is the impact that the mass media (television, newspaper, internet, etc.) has had on the youth of countries around the world. Especially in the United States, the television, first introduced in 1928, has not only affected, but utterly shaped the lifestyles of younger audiences and has truly played a significant role in the developing virtues and ideals of children and teens growing up. No period of history serves as a better example of the media’s impact in the world than today’s ever-changing generation. The news industry alone continues to expand its influence, as people are able to see events taking place halfway around the world in detail, a concept that presents both good and bed consequences. For parents trying to shield their young children’s eyes from certain programming and certain images on TV, the struggle to do so is more difficult than ever. Especially for teens, the TV world has essentially become their reality. Reality shows that parents and the adult world as a whole believe only damage the young mind are now in an almost endless supply. Perhaps even more concerning than television for parents is the vast, dangerous, but at the same time sometimes beneficial invention known as the World Wide Web. The internet, essentially a combination of television, newspaper, and radio, has truly lived up to such a name, becoming the connecting tie of almost every square inch of the globe. Quite needless to say, the internet has had an uncontestable affect on the world’s youth. Beneficial to users in areas such as education and current international information but damaging and corrupting in others, the global connection of computers around the world, as well as other forms of media and communication, remains an unsettled and ever-debatable issue for parents, national governments, and even religions.

Game Review – Minecraft

Patrick Sullivan
A little over a month after its beta release, the initial Minecraft craze has continued to build steam; a perfect time for your intrepid gaming reporter to sit back and analyze the game for its merits. With purposefully low-quality visuals, sound, no endgame, and above all the fact that the game is still in active development, something about Minecraft’s gameplay makes it addicting enough to draw over one million sales without a retail store release or advertising – but what?
Minecraft began as the pet project of Swedish game developer Markus Persson of Mojang Specifications, Inc, more commonly known by his Internet alias Notch. Persson began development of Minecraft after leaving online game company King.com with a simple concept: simulate a world that players could harvest resources from and build with. “I'm much more interested in making working interactive worlds than just pretty sets you walk around in,” says Persson. “I will work on other games on the side, to preserve my creative sanity, but it will be my primary focus for probably quite some time to come. Hopefully.”
The primary draw of Minecraft is its creative aspect – the ability of the player to build complex structures or furnish existing caves. Building materials take several forms: dirt, sand, stone, water, wood, various metal ores, and so on. While the player focuses on expanding their creations on the surface, they venture into procedurally generated caves to harvest these resources (“mining”), utilizing already-gathered materials to make the caves traversable and well-lit. It is quite literally possible to build everything conceivable; players have constructed simple houses, replicas of the starship Enterprise, and fully functional 16-bit computers (see picture)!
And what has Persson spent his sudden millions on? “A new hat,” he says with a smile. The feeling of instant wealth is “surreal,” he states in another interview. “You just walk around and all of a sudden you come to think of that – oh. I’m… rich.”
Minecraft is currently available for purchase online for €14.95 (about $20.00 USD). I urge anyone looking for a creative, outside-the-box game experience to pay a visit to minecraft.net and support Persson as he continues to develop the project.

Coachella

By: Jamie Coster

It’s almost that time of year again, where kids cut the pants off their jeans, lather up in sunscreen, and make their ways to Indio, California for the acclaimed Coachella Music and Arts Festival.
Coachella is renowned for it’s eclectic art exhibits as well as its wonderfully diverse lineup of musicians, pleasing all sorts of fans from Hip-Hop aficionados to indie rock veterans. Now, in its 12th year, the lineup is packed as ever featuring performances anyone will enjoy. Kanye West, 90’s dance-punk Death from Above 1979, and Kings of Leon all share the stage for this infamous weekend of music. Other notable acts include Bright Eyes, Broken Social Scene, The Arcade Fire, Duran Duran, The Strokes, and Mexican legends Caifanes. This year’s lineup has caused so much approval; it caused the festival to sell out within five days, a new record. With all of these amazing acts, this year’s Coachella will be one not worth missing.

Save Endangered Tigers

By: Sandra Milosevic

The tiger is one of the most powerful and majestic mammals in the world. This amazing animal, however, is standing on the brink of extinction. Tigers have been hunted by humans for many years. Even though the tiger has enemies in the form of elephants, bears and very large buffalos, humans are its worst enemies.
The tiger population has seriously declined in the past fifty years. Nepal only has two hundred tigers while India has four thousand, a serious decline compared to past years. Today, the tiger population is less than ten thousand.
Humans need to do something about this problem. Tigers are seriously endangered and humans are a large cause of this problem. In fact, humans are the tigers' largest predator. Humans need to open their eyes to the serious problem of tigers facing extinction. This powerful and majestic animal needs to be saved, not hunted.

Top 5 Chick Flicks




Anna Hovanesyan
Top 5 Chick Flicks
With Valentine’s Day headed our way, what can be better than watching sappy chick flicks? There have been many great romances that have hit the big screen these past years, but let’s take a look at the ones that were actually worthy enough to make the list for the official all time greatest flicks.
5. Gone with the Wind: Do I even need to explain why this made the countdown? Even though it is the oldest movie in our list, it sure is one of my favorites. Starring Vivien Leigh, Clark Gable, Leslie Howard, Olivia de Havilland, and many others, this film always seems to capture the hearts of movie lovers everywhere. The story line spanned the years of civil war and deals with the issues of unrequited love. This tremendous movie truly shows the meaning of how precious love actually is.
4. The Notebook: Noted as one of the greatest love stories of all times and originally written by Nicholas Sparks, the story follows an elderly couple as they look back on their own young love and all the challenges they faced. This movie, starring Rachel McAdams and Ryan Gosling, portrays the power of love and its effect on this couples life. The flick shows that even crazy, childish love can actually bloom into true love in old age.
3. When Harry Met Sally: When Harry and Sally meet on a long car ride; they automatically become friends and a great connection sparks. Throughout the movie, both are in search of love and romance, yet face many hardships finding their soul mates. During the span of their lives, they always end up turning to each other in their time of need and always manage to help each other. The film shows the growth of their beautiful friendship and their fears of initiating an actual relationship.
2. (500) Days of Summer: Probably the most recent film in our countdown, it definitely deserves a spot on this list. Even though it’s not the typical romance movie, (500) Days of Summer, follows the relationship of a woman who doesn’t want a committed relationship and the struggles of a guy who desperately falls for her. This movie actually seems to portray the real consequences and struggles of love, and shows that love is never actually perfect. Besides having a wonderful cast and plot, the movie’s soundtrack is also worth coveting.
1. Titanic: No list can be complete without the Titanic. Released in 1997, this movie, starring Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet, shows how love transcends any societal class. The movie, based on historical events, follows the life of a wealthy, yet unhappy young lady, Rose, forced to marry the son of a steel tycoon. Rose, on her expedition to New York, gets to experience and see the true worth and meaning of life and love, when she meets artist, Jack. Undoubtedly, one of the most memorable and enjoyable love stories ever screened, the Titanic won a well deserved 11 academy awards.

The White Stipes Call It Quits


Kaitlin Gleason
The White Stipes Call It Quits
Blog Story
After a two-year hiatus, Jack and Meg White, perhaps better known as The White Stripes, have officially announced the splitting up of their band. The duo announced their break-up on their website early Tuesday.
After their 13- year run, it was not a fight or artistic differences that has split the two apart. Instead, Jack and Meg have decided to call it quits for the sake of the preservation and dignity of their music.
Their website has released an explanation.
“The beauty of art and music is that it can last forever if people want it to,” the note reads. The split is allegedly “For a myriad of reasons, but mostly to preserve what is beautiful and special about the band and have it stay that way.”
But does the note offer an acceptable or noble reason for this devastating split? Or is it simply a result of their boredom and restlessness with this musical project?
“I think what they wrote on their website is definitely a cover up. They’re just bored and they’re trying to cover it up. Why would you want to preserve the dignity of your music when you could keep progressing and continue on with a great thing?” asked Junior Chris Warden.
Others, however, are more respectful of White’s decision.
“I completely respect what they’re trying to do. There comes a point where you just have to say ‘Okay, we’ve done something great, now let’s leave it be and move on’. I think it’s beautiful that they said the music belongs to us now, it reminds me what I love about music in the first place,” said Junior Joey Dalla Betta.
Whatever the reason, Jack White will certainly not be bored after the split. Aside from The White Stripes, White has formed several other bands. In 2005, White formed The Raconteurs with three other friends after recording the song “Steady, As She Goes”. The band released their debut album, Broken Boy Soldiers, and set out on tour, as the opening act for Bob Dylan. In 2008, they released a second album, Consolers of the Lonely, which received a grammy.
White formed a new group in early 2009 with the frontwoman of The Kills, Alison Mosshart. With Jack white on drums, vocals, and the occasional guitar solo, they called themselves The Dead Weather. They released their first album, Horehound, in 2009 and have since released singles leading up to their new album, which is allegedly going to be released soon.
In addition to three full-fledged bands, White has collaborated with numerous artists and even been featured in the film “It Might Get Loud,” along with Jimmy Page. In November 2010, producer Danger Mouse announced that he would be collaborating with White in a new project.
With all of these projects, it does make sense why Jack and Meg would want to step away from The White Stripes, to progress with their other endeavors. The White Stripes will leave a 13-year musical legacy behind, for all to enjoy.
“The White Stripes do not belong to Meg and Jack anymore. The White Stripes belong to you now and you can do with it whatever you want.” (Taken from whitestripes.com).

Tumblr..The New Facebook

By: Carrie Shores

Although Facebook and Twitter are currently the most popular social network out there today, a new website is climbing up there with them and forming its own sense of popularity. This website is called Tumblr.com.
Tumblr is a blogging website where people can express themselves freely while following others blogs as well. There are many similarities between these social networks such as the concept of “following” and “liking” others posts. The difference between them, is that Twitter and Facebook seem to be more personal, Tumblr is more so about expressing your feelings through things such as photos, quotes, videos, and personal essay type writings rather than communicating directly with others.
There is some controversy within this website because it create a false sense of reality and can be simply depressing. Also, anorexic girls have started something called a “Progress Blog” which shows their weight loss progress throughout their disease. They support each other’s disorders and share dangerous secrets. This is very scary because its harming young girls. Also, a lot of pictures posted on Tumblr are pictures of models and really thin girls. This doesn’t help their disease.
There is always an up and down to anything. The positive side of Tumblr is that is it is a good way for teenagers to vent their feelings if they feel like they can’t talk to anyone about their problems.

The Best and Worst Dressed of the SAG Awards




The Best and Worst Dressed of the SAG Awards
Tayce Taylor

Award events have started the New Year, claiming the best of the best; but who really won best fashion sense? The red carpet is the perfect time to show celebrities’ fashion tastes and expensive jewelry and clothing. The very recent Screenwriters Actors Guild Awards showed every star’s glamour. Natalie Portman wore a beautiful white dress outlines in sequins, but it looked like it was suffocating her baby! It was way too tight. Jennifer Lawrence must have bought her dress from Hello Kitty. Lawrence was spotted wearing a hot pink dress, cut off with a black belted bow. Hilary Swank went all nude in her gown that looked very classy. Bravo. Amy Adams sported a tight white dress, that might have been too tight because it showed every bump on her body.. Although your not supposed to wear red on the red carpet, Mila Kunis fashioned a red draped dress that won my vote as best dressed! Christina Hendricks got my vote for the absolute worst dressed as she wore a black robe-looking thing. Kim Kardashian was seen in a sexy purple dress with sequin embellishments, with light make-up that made her look very refreshed and beautiful The red carpet disagreed with Winona Ryder’s wedding dress that definitely did not fit this event. Be on the look out for next week’s Grammy Awards, and soon Oscars.
