In my previous feature on Next Generation Politics, Senior Amanda Taylor stated that “politics affect your life in every way possible.” However, as students of a highly progressive, liberal school, many among the Masters community opt to ‘stay out of politics’ after engaging in heated debates ...

  As all Masters students know, Halloween is a tradition at Masters that is celebrated by everyone. Deemed one of the “best days” at Masters by various students, students and faculty come to school dressed under a theme given by the senior class.

  The Harkness Method acts as a vehicle for students to interactively absorb subject matter and express diverse opinions. However, students at The Masters School and beyond struggle to find environments where they feel comfortable exchanging certain views without fear of judgement. Among the ne...

After spending a thorough amount of time looking at pictures of food on Piccola’s website, I was excited to try it out. When I arrived I immediately felt the local, old-school Italian restaurant vibe. The candles, curtains, wood tables, and freshly baked bread all made me feel like I was at a classic...

For one of my last blog posts before the end of the year, I want to talk about a genre of science fiction that has truly captured my interest but nonetheless remains relatively unknown to anyone who doesn’t binge-consume science fiction like I do. Cyberpunk is a genre that describes a subset of futu...

One of the things I like to do in my spare time is collect foreign or exotic currency. From absurdly large bills for defunct currencies to the more obscure American denominations, I’ve spent countless hours poring over old coins, many of which have been made obsolete by the euro or are from countri...

Whenever a company tries to dip their feet into the water by appealing to the much-coveted millennial generation, the results can be incredibly cringe-inducing. Even worse is when companies make an ad that causes public outrage; this is especially relevant concerning the Pepsi protest ad debacle. The m...

Walking into Cedar Street Grill, I could immediately sense the homey, family vibe. According to the 2012 New York Times article framed on the wall, Cedar Street Grill is owned and operated by the Kay family. The wood tables, brick walls, and chalkboards (that listed names of local farms that the ingredi...

What is perhaps the greatest feature of the internet is its ability to allow artists and writers to publish their work with very little money or effort expended. This is both a blessing and a curse; for every great short story or even full length novel, there are perhaps thousands upon thousands of poo...

This isn't really an obscure topic so much as it requires obscure knowledge, so here goes. It was inevitable that the political firestorm since the beginning of the 2016 election would spill over into the Internet, but what people don't really realize is how fractured social media already is. When H...

What better way to celebrate Taco Tuesday than eating tacos? Tomatillo, a “Mexchester original”, did not disappoint. There were many options for vegetarian and vegan food, and the ingredients are “Farm to taco”. Here are some highlights from the meal:   Guacamole: Chips and salsa were provided at the begi...

Most people don’t like insects, spiders, or really anything that is hairy and has too many legs for its own good. Many people would likely scream and try to squash any such creature that dared to cross one’s path or enter one’s home. Therefore, it’s only natural that a subculture devoted to ke...
