October 30, 2018

RSTA’s biotechnology program has recently installed new equipment which will play a big role in the new curriculum for biomanufacturing and research by students in the field. The program is geared towards students especially drawn to science “who want to do hands-on work and don’t just want to learn about things and hear about things, but to actually do them,” biotechnology teacher Dr. Joan Abrams explained. “It’s a really nice complement to what goes on in the science department.”

If you’ve ever wondered where the posters that line the second floor bridge come from, attended a student-led assembly, or encountered problems within our community that you want to actively speak up against, I’d encourage you to visit room 2201, home to a CRLS exclusive class: STARs. Inside these green walls, students are constantly making change and raising awareness on topics that directly impact our school, our city, our lives.

Searching for Flood Solutions as Storms Intensify

Searching for Flood Solutions as Storms Intensify

October 30, 2018

As Hurricane Michael’s extreme winds and torrential rain hit Florida and the Gulf Coast hard at the beginning of October, residents of Cambridge only experienced a heavy downpour in the afternoon. Despite the lack of impact in Cambridge, the result of hurricanes like Florence, Michael, and previous fatal storms begs the question—when will the Boston area be a future storm’s target? As climate change progresses, the severity of storms accelerates because of the evaporation of water, according to a NASA study. Water vapor and humidity are the sources of intensification of storms.

Question 3 on MA Ballot Jeopardizes Transgender Rights

Question 3 on MA Ballot Jeopardizes Transgender Rights

October 30, 2018

Question 3, one of the questions that will appear on the Massachusetts state ballot in November 2018, would repeal a 2016 law that prohibits discrimination against transgender people in public spaces. To some, the wording of the referendum is confusing. According to Boston.com, voting “yes” on the ballot would keep the current law, which provides transgender people with protection against discrimination, while voting “no” would remove it. This referendum would affect CRLS students that identify as transgender, both inside and outside of the CRLS community.

Students Upset, Not Surprised, at Kavanaugh Confirmation

Students Upset, Not Surprised, at Kavanaugh Confirmation

October 30, 2018

“I think that this sort of event was bound to happen based on our current political climate and the #MeToo movement. I’m not surprised that Kavanaugh got confirmed, and even if he didn’t, some equally qualified, conservative judge would have been appointed since I doubt the Democrats will win the Senate.”
