It’s a good Morning here at Morningside College! It’s Kassidy Hart here with the three of the latest news stories.
First up, with the release of Apple’s AirPod Pros on Wednesday, will more students be purchasing the earbud?
Sophomore Jaedyn Mauck uses AirPods opposed to regular earbuds to listen to music daily.
“I like airbods because they are easier to use on the chords because the cords get in the way.”
To improve the original AirPods model, Apple added additional features and a new design for the new AirPod Pros. These features include silicone design tips, noise cancellation and sweat and water resistance.
With this new product, students may be tempted to pay the expensive price for a better listening experience.
Next up, lawmakers in New York City looking to ban tackle football for children under the age of twelve because it may be “too dangerous”.
As the year 2020 approaches, New York is one of the first states to consider banning dangerous sports and creating a safer sporting environment for children.
Sophomore Carlie Wilson says that danger was a part of her everyday life and she turned out fine.
“I used to jump out of my six-foot-tall playhouse to see how far I could get.”
The reason they are banning the sport is a bit more than a few scrapes and scratches though. The sport may be causing chronic traumatic encephalopathy, also known as CTE.
Whether the sport is a cause of CTE or not, one thing is clear: with the advanced developments in science, the world is pointed towards becoming a safer place for future generations of children.
Last, but not least, what is the best tip you’ve ever received? For this server in Missouri, it was a fifty-thousand-dollar lottery ticket.
Taylor Russey said that the regular who left her the ticket usually buys the rest of the regulars in the bar when the lottery is high a ticket.
Sophomore Maleah Richter comments on what would she would do with the winnings if she were in Russey’s position.
“I would use the fifty-thousand-dollars to make off student loans and give a little back to the guy who gave me the winning lottery ticket.”
Fifty-thousand dollars is definitely a hefty amount and many students would use the money to pay off student loans.
And that’s all for today, folks. Have a great day and Go Mustangs!
