Hug High School Hawkeye https://hhshawkeye.org The Student News Site of Procter R. Hug High School Mon, 24 Feb 2020 16:07:29 +0000 en-US hourly 1 https://wordpress.org/?v=5.3.2 Cafeteria Through The Eyes of a Student Worker https://hhshawkeye.org/2414/student-life/cafeteria-through-the-eyes-of-a-student-worker/ https://hhshawkeye.org/2414/student-life/cafeteria-through-the-eyes-of-a-student-worker/#respond Mon, 24 Feb 2020 16:05:06 +0000 https://hhshawkeye.org/?p=2414 Cafeteria food is often considered to many students as “nasty,” as one student who wished to remain anonymous said. This student that it has a stale texture compares the pizza to tasting like cardboard. With this being said, icomes to no surprise that students have complained that the food is not to their liking; however, it makes one wonder how would the students that work in the cafeteria feel about such comments and the very food they prepare. 

Julianna Cervantes, a Junior, has been a student worker at the cafeteria since the beginning of her sophomore year. With no prior work experience, she decided that a student worker is fitting for her, as her work would be close by and done during school hours. 

I didn’t think about [the cafeteria] as much.” Cervantes said concerning her time before becoming a student worker. Her mindset would change drastically after getting used to the cafeteria and developing bonds with the other workers.  

“Before, when people would make comments about [the cafeteria], I wouldn’t mind. But now that I see how much work [the cafeteria staff does], it irritates me,” Cervantes says.

When asked about Cervantes’s opinion on the food she helps prepare, Cervantes thoughts have not changed from before her student work. “The food is alright. It wouldn’t be my first choice, but it’s not my last, either.”

A former cafeteria student worker, Phillip Dobbins, demonstrates a bigger comprehension towards the food being served at the cafeteria. 

“The cafeteria food is as good as it can be for what [the cafeteria staff] can serve to students because it has to be nutritious,” he says. However, Dobbins acknowledges that some food may not be to everybody’s liking. 

Both Cervantes and Dobbins can agree on the value of the food served at the cafeteria. It may not be the best, but nonetheless, it should not garner the amount of complaints the food has received. After all, the food does reach the nutritional standard and it’s free.

Superstitions or Science? https://hhshawkeye.org/2428/sports/superstitions-or-science/ https://hhshawkeye.org/2428/sports/superstitions-or-science/#respond Wed, 19 Feb 2020 14:00:17 +0000 https://hhshawkeye.org/?p=2428  

Lebrons pregame chalk toss

Pregame rituals are a sight to behold in sports. Most players do it before games, and every player that does a pre-game ritual has a different way of doing it, such as Steph Curry’s tunnel shot or LeBron’s infamous chalk toss. There are also some weirder rituals such as former football linebacker Brian Urlacher’s, who eats two girl scout cookies before every game or

There are even more –  some sports fans partake in rituals before their favorite teams’ games, by wearing the team’s jersey or by having a lucky charm with them. But why do players do these rituals, and does this help improve their performance?

 

The Dallas Mavericks NBA championship (Dirk Nowitzki holding the trophy)

In sports skill, technique and talent are usually the main ways in which a player can become successful in their sport, but a less acknowledged part of sports is luck. Luck in sports is also very important, as it can also be a major factor in winning and losing. Such can be said about Dirk Nowitzki’s first NBA championship. Going into the playoffs, many didn’t think that the Dallas Mavericks would be able to get far. They would have had to beat teams such as the LA Lakers, defending champions, as well as the infamous trio in the Miami Heat of Lebron James, Dwayne Wade and Chris Bosh. But despite these odds, the Dallas Mavericks were able to sweep the defending champions in a 4-0 win in the second round and then beat the Miami Heat in the finals, earning Dirk Nowitzki his first ever championship. Many would consider this season as a perfect mixture of talent and luck combining to bring a championship to the Dallas Mavericks. This is one of many examples of how luck can play an important role in sports.

The “luck” factor is why most players do some sort of pregame ritual, as some think that it can influence their luck to have a better performance in game. But is there any evidence that a pregame ritual can improve a player’s performance? Well, there is very little evidence, but there is some psychology that can help back up the reasoning for pregame rituals. Pregame rituals are a way for players to cope with the pressure that comes with performing, as players can also become nervous in games, so they use rituals to try and keep their emotions in check.

Steve Nash leads the NBA in free throw percentage, with 90 percent from the line.

One such ritual that can be observed in the free throws in the NBA. As almost all players in the NBA have a ritual they perform at the free throw line. Players usually do the same routine when on the free throw line, as it can help with consistency in their percentage of making the shot. “Athletes…never know how they’re going to play, how the other team is going to play,” said Gregg Steinberg, a professor human performance at Austin Peay State University, in a CNN article. Doing a pregame ritual can help players get a greater sense of control in game and can keep the mind at ease while in a stressful competition.

Although it may seem important as an athlete to have a pregame ritual, it’s not a requirement to have. Most athletes do fine without having a pregame ritual, as with most rituals it comes down to confidence and self-belief. If a player believes that a certain action can help them perform better in a game, then they can do a pregame ritual, but if another player feels that its unnecessary and won’t help their game then there is no need to incorporate a ritual. Pregame rituals will always be a quirky part of sports even though there is inconclusive evidence of their helpfulness. Athletes will try anything to get their absolute best performance with a combination of luck and skill to get that extra edge in the game.

STAR WARS Jedi: Fallen Order Review – The Quest For The Best Poncho https://hhshawkeye.org/2393/opinion/review/star-wars-jedi-fallen-order-review-the-quest-for-the-best-poncho/ https://hhshawkeye.org/2393/opinion/review/star-wars-jedi-fallen-order-review-the-quest-for-the-best-poncho/#respond Fri, 14 Feb 2020 16:04:18 +0000 https://hhshawkeye.org/?p=2393 As with any Star Wars content, Jedi: Fallen Order was highly anticipated and many  fans pre-purchased the game just because it had “Star Wars” on it, but does this anticipation reflect the content of the game, or just the dedication of fans to the franchise?

In the game, you play as Cal Kestis, a generic scrapper with an insatiable love for ponchos, cutting into crashed star destroyers for parts, no different from the hundreds of other scrappers you work with. You keep your head low and blend in while the Inquisitors — trained warriors who hunt down Jedi that survived Order 66 — comb through the galaxy looking to snuff out the last stragglers of the Jedi Order. When your best friend tells you a scrapper is no job for someone like you, and to follow your destiny, hiding that blue lightsaber clipped to your belt under your poncho can no longer be an option. When you use the force to save your friend from a scrapping accident, you can no longer hide from the Empire, and the time has come to activate your lightsaber that will cut down hundreds of Stormtroopers across the course of the game.

The game is pretty dark, but reasonably so, taking place before Episode 4: A New Hope and after Episode 3: Revenge of the Sith, five years after Palpatine executed Order 66. After escaping the junk planet and seizing his destiny, Cal’s mission is to find the Holocron, which contains a list of every force-sensitive child in the galaxy, which could be the new Jedi Order. Find it, and keep it from the hands of the Empire, who will hunt down every child on that list.

There are several planets to travel to in Fallen Order in classic Star Wars fashion: an ice one, a red one, a green one, and even more. While they don’t seem big at first, exploring through the mission reveals the giant size of the planets and breadth of exploration. Cal explores these planets in a third-person action-adventure with a fantastic poncho and lightsaber. Respawn did an excellent job of implementing the famous weapon of choice of the Jedi into the game, not only with the sound and lighting effects but the combat style and combinations possible in the game. Combat in this game can be frustrating at times, but it is very satisfying to cut through the lines of Stormtroopers, reflecting their laser blasts back at them.

Fallen Order combines this combat with excellent adventures and puzzles. The game includes many mechanics to progress on top of the Stormtrooper beat-em-up. These puzzles usually incorporate your force-wielding capabilities as well as the lore behind your adventure. Elite enemies pose a greater threat, and really bring a Souls-like feeling to the game. The second sister is a Jedi Killer of the Dark Side hunting you down throughout the galaxy, and the elite fighters and monsters she sends after you on top of other monsters you run across pose a great threat and can be deadly if not dealt with properly. The game runtime is 20 hours if you focus on missions, but the worlds you go to are much bigger than what you need to explore. There is so much to explore on each planet, which are filled with different materials, ponchos, and other customization items.

Another thing Fallen Order does well is the customization. At various lightsaber customization tables around the worlds, Cal can use the materials he has found to change the switch, sleeve, material, even the color of his lightsaber. Despite some performance issue on PC with stuttering and motion blur glitches, the game is beautifully done and the story is enjoyable to play through from start to finish. Hopefully, some patches come in the future to fix some  performance issues, but regardless the game is enjoyable and worth playing.

Syarra Goldstein ended up winning third place in Big Questions at the Galena Speech and Debate Tournament on January 25th. This was in a collapsed division, both novice and senior debaters, which was all the more impressive due to the fact Syarra is only a freshman and this was her first event in Big Questions.
