Afghanistan Going Through Economic Crisis Since U.S. Pullout
By Esther Fultz
Markets don’t exist in a vacuum. Social and political factors constantly influence the economy. This is apparent across American history and can be seen in the Afghan economy following the withdrawal of U.S. troops in August. While data regarding the economic situation in Afghanistan is currently sparse, the deterioration is apparent.
The World Food Program reported a 2021 increase from 42 million to 45 million people worldwide teetering on the edge of famine. ...

‘Belle’ is Truly Beautiful
By Ben Konuch
“Gales of song, guide me through the storm. Let the melody lift me high, I’ll be me.”
"Belle”, simply put, is a beautiful film. Gorgeously animated, wonderfully written, and with stunning original songs, “Belle” swept me up into its world of style, emotion, and heart. Part coming-of-age story, part teen drama and part musical with a pinch of science fiction, this anime feature was loosely based on the story of Beauty and the Beast. While some may be wary of this ...
On Embracing What You’re Horrible At
By Heidie Raine
I quit cheerleading after my sophomore year of high school in search of something new—reduced glitter, less time, better people. I found my answer in the form of the cross country team, a lovely athletic group that shared mutual respect, carb-loaded dinners and one goal: run fast.

1. No glitter
2. 45-minute practices
3. An altogether kinder atmosphere than competitive cheer crowd had provided

Cedarville University Has an Expensive Shoe Game
By Daine Halsey
Shoes… everyone wears them. Yet, some people are willing to spend more money than others when it comes to their footwear. Some people like to wear a nice, cheap pair of shoes that will help them get from Point A to Point B. Others are more willing to spoil themselves with a small fortune. As I have gone around campus, I have stopped people wearing expensive sneakers, asked them how much they paid for their shoes and took pictures of them. The price of these shoes may surprise ...
‘Peacemaker’ Episode 4 is What the Series Needed
By the Cedars A&E Staff
"Look, we all want to believe that our parents are flawed but innately good, and maybe, usually, that's the case, but not here. Your dad is not a good man!"
The fourth episode of "Peacemaker" is great. Following hot off the heels of a solid third episode, this one sees Peacemaker and his team deal with the captured Judomaster as well as trying to contain the situation when Peacemaker finds out that his father has been framed to cover up his own mess. Playing up the ...
