Early Life |
Anatoly Moskvin was born to parents, Yuri Fedorovich and Elvira Alexandrovna, on September 1, 1966, in Russia’s fifth-largest city, Nizhny Novgorod. As a child, his parents said he was meek, intelligent, and socially awkward. Around eight or nine years old, his calm, quiet demeanor morphed into aggression with frequent outbursts at his parents. Later, he would admit this behavior stemmed from rape by an unknown man. Unaware of what occurred, his parents backed off, leaving him more alone than ever. This…

Your username is your first impression to followers. While it can be as simple as your entire name or some shortened version, many use the opportunity to connect their handle to their brand or the image…
‘HE JUST VANISHED’ |
A spur-of-the-moment family outing ends in tragedy when a woman calls emergency services to report that her 2-year-old son, DeOrr Kunz Jr., is missing from the Timber Creek Campground ten-miles west of Leadore, Idaho.
In the years since, repeated attempts of deceit have painted the parents as suspects by police and their former private investigator. However, minimal evidence has been found and neither parent has confessed to the crime. As time passes, the family continues to distance themselves from the community they once regarded so highly, leaving everyone wondering — where is DeOrr Kunz Jr.?

I’m not quite
To the cafeteria when
I hear the buzz of conversations
Overlapping one another
Until everyone is shouting.
I pause -
Should I continue? -
The scent of soggy
French fries and
Sour milk sear
Sending each little hair
I recoil -
To endure that
Instead, I retreat
Down the off-white walls,
Across the even more
Past the pale khaki lockers.
In the bathrooms,
I feel the most
Safe from the
Of my peers.
However, there is still
The row of mirrors
Reflecting what I loathe
In the era of laxative lollies and meal replacement shakes touted by cultural influencers, the creative duo of Pete Evans and Robert Tate debuted their film, The Magic Pill (2017), on Netflix, looking to set the record straight once and for all: there is no magic pill for weight loss.
Instead of perpetuating diet culture trends, Evans looks to paleolithic eating patterns for inspiration. He attempts to offer solid evidence for the ketogenic diet, a diet that is low in carbohydrates and high in fats, through nonclinical trials that are studied throughout the film.
In the 2019 New Yorker article, “Is Marijuana As Safe As We Think?”, Malcolm Gladwell proposes that the psychoactive drug can be dangerous, especially for those suffering from mental illness, and even suggests it creates violent tendencies, the exact narrative covered in colleague Alex Berenson’s novel, Tell Your Children: The Truth of Marijuana, Mental Illness, and Violence. Berenson’s novel is leveraged as supportive material in the final paragraphs of the article.
I believe his argument is implicit because he does not outright make the claim that marijuana is not completely without fault but instead attempts to persuade the audience through…
Since the rise of the Industrial Revolution, agriculture has maintained a strict hold on the American diet and lifestyle. Farming is one of the most common jobs around the world and one of the most ancient. Nearly 40% of Earth’s landmass is dedicated to agricultural development and use (FAOSTAT, 2008). With a demand that is unseen in previous centuries, it is only a matter of time before our aggressive farming methods begin to destroy the very foundation that agriculture rests upon: soil.
It is important that farmers and corporations work together to address some of the most critical aspects of…
IT IS 1913, and it’s business as usual for a small company drilling out in the vast emptiness of land between Kansas and Oklahoma when they discover a surprise in the wheat-covered landscape — a cache of lead and zinc. Eager to stake their claim, an independent mining company quickly buys up the land, bringing with them thousands of employees as well as their families. This surge of life prompts the new landowners to split the acreage. They form the cities of Treece, Kansas, and Picher, Oklahoma, the latter of which is eventually made famous for providing most of the…
