   If you like films with superheroes and outstanding special effects, then you will love the newest Marvel film, Doctor Strange.    This movie in particular is different from most superhero movies. It’s not the classical super strength or ability to fly. Time, space, and multidimensional un...

REVIEW – MV Student Center drinks

Lauren Edelman, Online Editor

January 24, 2017

    Let’s be honest, when students typically think of high school cafeteria food, they don’t think of a five star meal.  Instead, they think about soggy pizzas, and “mystery meat” chicken nuggets. Gross.       MV students are lucky enough to have relatively luxurious Subway sandwich...

      Not Akira Bistro, Sushi Bar Hana, Yuki of Tokyo, or Sushi Yokohama could compare to the cram packed flavor of Blue Ginkgo's sushi rolls.       When I first sat down, I was discouraged by the price of my favorite Japanese foods, as the Golden Gate cost $17 and the Ramen, $13. However, it did...
