Strangest Fashion Trends
2017 brought us some pretty bold fashion trends that many people have had different opinions about. Such as overalls, overalls where big all of the 1990s and early 2000s then began to fade out until 2016-2017 wear they made a big appearance. From overall dresses to shorts to pants with all types of patterns Even though overalls are still being worn, a bunch of old styles are happening in 2018 already.
- Plastic pants, these clear pants are completely see through I would suggest some sort of shorts under them unless you would like everyone to see “everything”. These pants have had some reviews most of them say that when you sweat they get pretty uncomfortable and start sticking to your leg. Most of the reviews said they are also very loud when you move around. Out of a random poll of high school students 18 percent said yes they would just to see if they would like the feeling of them, 86 percent said no they just seemed weird.

Russia Bans ‘Extremist’ Comedy The Death of Stalin
Russia’s Culture Ministry has banned the film The Death of Stalin from theaters across the nation, just days ahead of its release.
But what is The Death of Stalin, and what makes it such a controversial piece? Well, as you’d expect, the film takes place in the USSR, at the time when the infamous Soviet leader passes away. To set the scene, the year is 1953, and the communist powerhouse is left without a head of state. The country is left deep within the voids of a power struggle, and the higher-up officials/comrades of Stalin scramble to usurp his throne. The movie is a political satire, and in the same vein of “Er Ist Wieder Da” (Look Who’s Back), the 2015 German shock-humor comedy in which Hitler wakes up in modern day Berlin. The Death of Stalin shares a similar style of one-liners and mockery.

Larry Nassar was supposed to be a top notch doctor who worked with elite athletes, so young athletes went to him for injuries and broken bones thinking that he could help them.
However, the doctor followed a repeated pattern. Under the disguise of medical equipment, Nassar has admitted to sexually assaulting the athletes. He admitted to going back as far as 1998 to putting his finger into the vagina of girls as young as 13 and assaulting girls as young as six years old. Into the sixth day of this trial, it is said that a total of 144 victim impact statements will be read in total. Victims got to deliver and talk about the hours of they spent of being assaulted and the tole it took on them after Nassar manipulated them.
NFL or NBA?
If your sitting at home on a rainy day with nothing to to do besides watch tv, which would you rather watch NFL OR NBA? It’s different for everyone, if you’re more into basketball then your would most likely prefer NBA but if you’re more into football then you would prefer football.
An anonymous person said “ I enjoy both sports, I used to play both of them. The NFL has too much controversy for my tastes. I do not not mind taking a knee to combat controversy. In fact, I applaud them for using their platform to voice very real concerns about the state of the nation. The media frenzy surrounding thats is dying down, but that in itself is not a knock on the NFL. The NBA boasts the best athletes in world in my mind. It’s not even particularly close. The NBA also has an excellent competitive balance. It may not seem that way with the Golden state Warriors or the Cleveland cavaliers poised to have a fourth consecutive Finals match up in 2018.
Brittany woods stated that she believes the “NFL is better because you get to watch people get hit hard and plumished to the ground. The NBA is only good to watch the it’s a close game, when someone gets their ankles broken or when there is an injury”.
From a recent survey it’s every 3 out of 5 that thinks the NFL is better to watch than the NBA. I tested this out with my family and it was correct ⅗ of my family members said NFL was better, this is not including me.
NFL is the most popular sport in America for at least the 30th straight year. That’s according to a survey taken this month by the Harris poll, which has been asking adults fans, ages 18 and over, about their favorite sports since 1985. But what do you think, which should be the most popular?
