Have you ever come to thought about what’s life like after high school? The struggle to pay for food when you need to worry about books, taking care of yourself, and finishing school? It’s the one day we move out of our parent’s house and live on our own. Sadly, some teenagers are runaways, so they’ve probably experienced life without their parents for a while.

Some people choose different paths in the future. That one person that was always the “smarter” one, usually ends up successful and the one that bullies the intelligent one ends up living in a cardboard box. The beautiful thing is, it’s all up to you how you want your future to be. You choose what you want. Whether you slack and struggle to pay the rent, or be comfortable supporting yourself or a partner in the future.

The anger of 800,000 Hong Kong protestors ensued, when Chinese authorities revoked the decision to grant universal suffrage in 2017. It was supposed to be the first year that Hong Kong citizens could elect its own leader. However, Beijing’s new decision dictates that the candidates selected by each of Hong Kong’s five million citizens must be approved by a committee of Beijing loyalists. The selected candidates must prove their love towards China and Hong Kong, in order to ensure their loyalty.

Li Fei, deputy security general of the National People’s Congress Standing Committee (NPC) states: “The right to vote is not a universal human right, it is a political right. Who has the right to vote varies from country to country. It is granted through each country’s laws, not by birth”. Li Fei asserts that granting Hong Kong the right to openly select its own leader would lead to a “chaotic society”

For all women and men; different age, color, height, and weight are perceived to need to have a certain physique to feel attractive. It’s the way beauty departments make their money off the insecurities that we all have. It’s the amount of masculinity someone has to have to be called a “man”. It’s the one thing that I don’t understand.

The beauty of people is something that is easy for me to see. Why is it so hard for the people to see that they are good enough themselves? I don’t mean to come off as some sort of feminist, which is sometimes looked down upon with certain people, but it’s something i’m genuinely confused about.

Monday night saw the long awaited return of the critically acclaimed comedy series "Louie" on FX. As a long time fan of series creator Louis C.K. and the stand up comedy he does, it was well worth the 19 month wait. Minor spoilers after the cut.

The new season started strong and stayed that way throughout the hour (something new this season is that there will be back-to-back episodes every Monday night). Whether it was Louie being woken up abruptly by the weekly garbage crew who eventually crash in through the windows of Louie's apartment literally trashing the place, Louie being invited to a heart disease benefit hosted by Jerry Seinfeld who guest starred, completely tanking when trying to keep his stand up clean embarrassing himself in the process, or being sued by a wealthy family having to pay $5,000 a week for the rest of his life, Louie knew how to keep fans entertained throughout.

Courier Staff Report

At the end of March in 2014, The Courier suffered a devatating data loss due to an issue between our hosting service, Agent Black Hosting, and the internet service provider who's services Agent Black resells.

According to Agent Black's owner, James Miller, the service provider simply deleted The Courier from their servers. Miller said that the service provider, which is located overseas, claimed to have sent him email warning him of the deletion before it occurred, but Miller said his email records contain no such message.

Due to a cascading series of technical glitches which followed, none of The Courier's back-up files are usable due to version incompatabilities.

However, some of the lost data, which includes all The Courier's stories since 2006, may be recoverable story-by-story.

We will post these stories and other Courier features currently lost, as we can. Please bear with us as we re-establish ourselves.
