Ties for prom and a good cause

Sadie Green created a business called Green Starfish. This is an up and coming business. Not only is it selling ties to students at Davis High, but it’s helping families get out of poverty.

Green Starfish was started by an assignment in an entrepreneur class at the school. The assignment was just supposed to be a theoretical, but Sadie went above and beyond to create her business. Sadie decided that it would be a good idea to sell ties, because prom season is coming up, and ties are about to become a very needed product throughout the school.

Green Starfish is also helping families in get out of poverty. The business is specifically helping a family in Guatemala called the Garcia family. The family is close friends with Sadie Green’s family, the father’s of both families met on their missions and stayed in touch ever since. Right now Emilio (the father of the Garcia family) is struggling with his health, so the main goal of the company is to help his kids with the money they are trying to gain. The poverty rate in Guatemala is growing, right now 23% of the people are in extreme poverty. 50% of profits go to getting people out of poverty.

By supporting this business you can help the people in Guatemala and help the Garcia family. Buy a tie from Green Starfish for prom and support a great business. You can look at the ties Green Starfish has to sell on the Instagram: @green.starfish

Seniors and College Registration

Nearing the end of the year, many seniors are looking for what they are going to do with their lives after high school. For many, this means college. Getting into college can be a stressful experience, because depending on where you go, you will be living there for however long you are attending the school.

Another reason why choosing the right college for you is so important is because depending on how good of an education you get, it could determine the job you have and ultimately even decide where you live. These are huge things in your life. Every year, seniors feel this pressure and rightfully so.

When going to college you have to take many things into consideration. Some of these things being who you are rooming with, where you are going to stay, what you are going to pay with, and many more things.

Student Will Ferrin said, “its really hard to decide where to go.” this is the common theme for many students because, like stated earlier, this is one of the decisions that shapes many of the things in your life.

In conclusion, even though it seems daunting and scary to decide where you are going to college… it is an awesome decision that will shape your life for better or for worse.

Boys Soccer Vs Clearfield at Davis

With the Boys Soccer Season nearing the half way point, the Davis High Soccer Team went into spring break with their first loss to Weber High. However that did not stop the team from winning their first game back, putting a win and another shutout onto their record.

Clearfield, the team that usually finishes last every year in 6A, had stepped up and emerged victorious against Syracuse and Northridge. Even though both teams lost their first games against the Darts this season, the team knew Clearfield would at least compete and former assistant coach Kennaley would go down swinging.

Beginning the game, the Darts came out and dominated possession across the field. With the midfield and forward putting unrelenting pressure on the Falcon’s defense, they were lucky to get the ball past half field. If they were the Dart’s defense was there to clean it up. After countless pressure the Flacons, eventually were going to make a mistake and pay for it.

The first goal was scored about halfway through the first half after the ball went out for a throw in down by Clearfields 18 yard line. As Captain Kaden Chino threw the ball in, Midfielder Zach Kennedy flicked the ball across the box to the Darts leading scorer, Josh Harwood. Ending the first half strong and putting the Dart’s one goal closer to winning the game.

While the second half started, so did the rain. If you have ever played soccer on grass while its raining you know that the ball skips and slides faster then it normally would, and turf is is even more of a slick canvas for the soccer ball. While the Dart’s battled to put the game away with another goal, time began to tick and the Falcon’s began to scramble.

With 10 min left Clearfield lost the ball and gave Davis the perfect opportunity for a counter attack. As the through ball was played, Cole Anderl ran onto the ball and slid the ball right under the keeper as he dove. At that moment the Falcons knew there was no coming back and the game was over. While the Darts celebrated their win, each player couldn’t keep their next game against Layton out of their heads.

Davis baseball ready to crush Clearfield

Davis High boys baseball takes on the Clearfield Falcons at Clearfield this week. The Dart’s team is currently doing well with a 10-5 record overall and a 7-1 region record. The Darts have a good chance at winning a championship this year with them being ranked 16th in the whole state.

Trace Lockwood, Davis High School’s student and baseball team manager, is confident that we can beat Clearfield. He says,

“Davis should beat Clearfield by a lot.”

The high school baseball season started in the middle of March and is supposed to end in early May. With this game being the 16th of 25 games in the season, this means that the season is more than half-way over, and the end of the season is almost here.

Davis will have more momentum going forward for the rest of the season, especially for the seniors on the team who will be leaving soon. I would encourage all Davis High Students to go support the baseball team at the remaining games they have, you will not regret it!

E-Books: a revolution for nature

Electronic Book. Heard of i? You might have it, or you might have not. Their era is only starting.

Technology has become a very important part of our lives, which makes us automatically attracted for every thing that is electronic. Despite the facts, you might be asking yourself, why should I care about the environmental impact of printed books vs E-books? Does it really make that big of a difference? Though these are valid questions, hopefully some background information will lead to a greater appreciation of this issue’s importance. We are so often surrounded by an endless supply of printed books, magazines, and newspapers that it is easy to become desensitized to or forget about their negative impact on our environment. However, in 2008, the publishing industry was responsible for the harvest of nearly 125 million trees. And also, if you are not a “reading” person, habits on your phone or Ipad can stimulate yourself do try new things, such as reading, since you don’t have to grab a book and just access it on your phone.

When consumers stop to think of their reading habits and the printing industry adapts accordingly, E-books clearly have the potential to lessen CO2 emissions. That being said, it is important to take in all facets of the books vs E—books debate as well as look at possible alternatives, like libraries and apps, when deciding what is best in your unique situation. It is your decision to make, but it is up for the time to decide what is gonna be our future.

How Greek philosophy helped build American government

If you look at all the aspects that helped our founding fathers build the structure of America, the leading one would be Greek philosophy. From teachings of Aristotle and Plato, their words helped inspire the best government to ever exist. The American government as we know it would not exist as we know it without these brilliant men.

The ancient Greek teachers believed that everything had virtue. They taught that a horse being virtuous is pulling a cart, or a boating having virtue is sailing. They believe every person, animal, or object had value to become something more important.

In Greek philosophy, Telos means the value of an object lies in its capacity to achieve the purpose for which it was designed. So Telos for stone can become brick or a statue. Telos for water can be keeping living things alive or to help crops to grow. This helped lead to more scientific production for the Greeks, and later on, the Americans. With Americans finding the natural Telos, it helped them find gasoline can fuel vehicles, or silicon can be made into digital electronics.

Going along with Telos, Logos in Greek means man’s mind mirrored that force to the extent that man can uncover the world’s purposes. This helps give man purpose to go out and discover the world’s many secrets and later to make scientific advancements that helped America become the super power it is now.

Greek philosopher Boethius started the liberal arts and split them into 2 different categories. Quadrivium is music, arithmetic, geometry, and astronomy. The other section of the early liberal arts was Trivium, which was divided into grammar, rhetoric, and logic. With starting these liberal arts, it provided the pathway to the culture in the Americas.

In 510 BC a philosopher in Greece named Cleisthenes brought up the idea of democracy. After that the idea caught on and helped create the best governments ever to exist.

Greek philosophy helped in countless ways to provide the steps to making the American government. These philosophers were brilliant people who inspired millions and helped create the best government in the world.

Color guard: one of the best in state

State color guard competition just happened on Saturday, the 2nd of April. They had a successful tournament and got 4th place. The performance went great and they’re very happy with how they did.

The color guard team was at the competition all day. At the competitions, the team watch other teams until they perform later that night. The teams are divided into divisions of skill level. Davis color guard is one of the more advanced teams that were at the competition, which perform later at night. To prepare before they went on stage, they warmed up and got into costume.

They worked really hard for state this year. The team had practice every Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday for the past few weeks, working on getting the routine uniform and clean. The routine they did is called “We Believe”. It’s about a girl that is lonely, and throughout the routine she makes friends. The team uses different types of equipment in the routine, like flags, sabers and rifles. The team is proud of how they did even though they had a smaller team compared to other years.

Color guard is an under appreciated sport that is a mix of theater and physical activity. The people on the teams work really hard to be able to use different pieces of equipment. A lot of the girls that are on the team now have been on the team for years even before high school. The color guard team should be supported more especially after their impressive win.
