Spyro, a 3D platformer collectathon developed by Insomniac Games was remastered lovingly from the ground up by Toys for Bob on November 13, 2018. A collectathon is a genre of video games popular in the 1990’s that specializes in gathering different sets of collectables in order to advance the game and or boost completion percent.
The game as a whole
Spyro Reignited Trilogy, primarily is a graphic update. Everything else has stayed the same, from enemy placement to level design. But, that doesn’t stop Toys for Bob from going above and beyond to make the definitive way to experience Spyro. The most obvious thing is the cosmetic update. It is gorgeous with a colorful, cartoonish look that fits in with and builds on the original’s pre-existing beauty. It doesn't just stop at that either. The game extends to the music even. The originals had the skill of composer Stewart Copeland who returns with some new music and remixes of originals. Since there are now two tracks for every level, players have been given the option to swap between new and old. The gameplay is the exact same. But, Toys for Bob were able to perfectly recreate the physics of the originals being floaty yet precise.
Spyro the Dragon
Gnasty Gnorc has released a spell freezing all of the dragons into crystal after being insulted and mocked by Lindar (one of the dragons). Luckily Spyro and his dragonfly friend Sparx were able to avoid the spell because they were smaller than the other dragons. Now he needs to travel through the five dragon realms, free all of the 80 dragons captured, find the 12 dragon eggs stolen, and recover all of the 14,000 treasure. Of all these things to collect, the dragons are the priority. These will be found in levels that are featured in the different (previously mentioned) dragon realms. Those being the Artisans, Peace Keepers, Magic Crafters, Beast Makers, and the Dream Weavers. The gameplay involves going into a level, exploring the area, finding and retrieving the collectables, and finding and getting to the exit. This allows for a open world approach to level design.
Spyro 2: Ripto’s Rage!
Due to an extended period of rainfall, Spyro and Sparx decide that they need a vacation. Then they notice a portal to Dragon Shores and travel through it. To their surprise, they land in a realm known as Avalar because the Professor, Elora the Faun, Zoe the Fairy, and Hunter the Cheetah, had redirected the portal to bring them there instead. After a confusing moment, they encountered a dictator named Ripto, who was enraged that the residents had brought a dragon to Avalar. In order to defeat Ripto, Spyro needs to collect the 14 Talismans and 64 Orbs. The gameplay revolves around going into a level, receiving a task from the local people, completing the task and receiving a talisman, exploring, find a secondary task, complete the task, keep finding and completing secondary tasks to keep receiving Orbs and then leave the level. This new level design accounts for a more linear style of play.
Spyro: Year of the Dragon
The Dragon Realms were celebrating an important event: the Year of the Dragon Festival. Every twelve years during this time, the Fairies deliver dragon eggs to the Dragon Realms, which will become the next generation of Dragons. In this year, the Fairies delivered 150 eggs to the Dragon Realms. The Dragons celebrated until they fell over from exhaustion and slept. While they were asleep, a mysterious rabbit girl named Bianca came with an army of Rhynocs to steal the dragon eggs. Now it’s Spyros’ job to collect all 150 eggs. The game is similar to Ripto’s Rage and Spyro 1 with eggs rewarded via exploration and task completion, but it also has the inclusion of different playable characters adding new levels and way of traversal.
Overall, Spyro Reignited Trilogy is the best way to play an outstanding series of games. Even though the game is relatively the same, it still can be enjoyed by both newcomers and veterans alike. With it’s already tight and fun gameplay and now with a modern style, Spyro Reignited Trilogy deserves a 8/10

The 2020 Grammy Awards show is an award ceremony honoring the music industry. The Recording Academy’s members choose who gets nominated and eventually wins in each category. This musical ceremony was held in Staples Center on January 26, 2020, at 7:00 pm CST.
Because it was the same day that former Lakers player Kobe Bryant and his daughter Gianna passed away in a helicopter crash, the ceremony began with a commemoration. Grammys host Alicia Keys began the show by saying how upset everyone was and paying tribute to him and his daughter. Singer Lizzo began her performance for “‘Cuz I Love You” by saying “tonight is for Kobe.” Not only that but it reminded some of when Whitney Houston died one day before the Grammys back in 2012 when everyone was scrambling to put together a tribute for her. This time it was on the very same day and they managed to pay their respects appropriately.
There were many performances from a variety of artists including Billie Eilish, Camilla Cabello, Lil Nas X, BTS and so many more. One very memorable performance was Demi Lovato singing her new song “Anyone.” This was her first performance since her overdose back in 2018. According to USA Today, Lovato wrote the song four days before her hospitalization.
The most memorable part of the Grammys was finding out the winners. The award that stuck out was Billie Eilish who won all four major awards Record of the Year, Album of the Year, Best New Artist and Song of the Year. Another memorable award moment was when another famous artist, Tyler the Creator, won Best Rap Album for his album Igor. Overall the Grammys were a success.

Global Warming: A Catastrophic Future

Why Climate Change is an Overreaction
Due to human use of fossil fuels in the US, China and the European Union, animals and
people are tragically dying because of climate change, which causes extreme weather events
and sea levels to rise. Climate change is a big problem, but why? Why is climate change happening?
It's mostly three things that are the main cause of climate change: burning fossil fuels, eating meat and driving cars. People burn a lot of fossil fuels and probably use fossil fuels for most
things in their daily lives. But as it can help humans, using fossil fuels is also destroying our
atmosphere, and heating up our planet. It might be hard to tell because currently the ocean
absorbs about ninety percent of the heat trapped in the atmosphere. Humans also eat a lot of meat, like cows and other animals which produce dozens of polluting gases. Since people continue eating these animals, more and more have to be produced causing forests to be cut down and used as grazing land for cattle. These forests produce a lot of oxygen and help absorb the heat. Cows actually pollute about as much as cars even though most people use cars everyday. Cars are definitely a major cause of global warming, because every gallon of gas used creates 24 pounds of carbon dioxide and other global warming gases.
There are many reasons people should care about global warming. One reason is because of the worsening effects on the wildfire season, which is getting months longer. Because of the fires, a lot of animals and people are dying in Australia. Also over 2,500 houses and about 12.35 billion acres have been destroyed. Hurricanes, floods and droughts are all getting worse, which is destroying land and houses. These events, even without being worsened, can cause catastrophic damage. Just imagine what's going to happen if these events keep getting worse.
Sea levels are rising, which will cause entire cities to be underwater.Throughout all of this, human health is a huge concern because of climate change, especially mental health. Climate change can cause anxiety, depression and suicidality because of its lasting effects. People should know that climate change is getting worse. Australia's bushfires are burning the country and everything in its path, coral reefs are dying and ice caps are melting in polar areas. Global warming is a much bigger problem than a lot of people believe.
February 2020 Editorial Page 5
Burning fossil fuels has been essential to the advancement of modern civilization, but climate activists believe that humans have been doing so at our own peril. They also believe global warming causes ice caps to melt, oceans to rise, and natural calamities to occur. These activists, however, have become alarmists. They have prophesied dire claims since the 1980's, when the U.N. predicted that entire nations would be covered by rising sea levels by the year 2000. Climate alarmists have used deceptive sources like government computer models as evidence of future atmospheric warming. These governmental models are untrustworthy because they attempt to identify a pattern within something that is notoriously volatile: climate. For example, thirty-two governments generated models that were published in the U.N’s latest report on climate change. These models predicted 2.5 times more warming from human-based carbon emissions than what was actually observed. Only one model was close to today's current levels of global warming, and it was the model anticipating the least amount of warming. According to the American Association of Climatologists, these climate models are consistently erroneous, even though these are the models some politicians base US policy on. Burning fossil fuels has resulted in increased levels of CO2. While this seems alarming, the number of trees rises by eight percent every year. There are substantially more trees in America than there were a hundred years ago. Such growth will curb the amount of CO2 in the air. This “problem” can be solved simply and naturally over time if humans allow Mother Nature to run her course.
A common misconception climate alarmists purport is that natural disasters like hurricanes are more destructive as a result of global warming, but this isn’t true. Climatologist Patrick Michaels, a member of multiple Nobel Prize winning panels, has totaled the number and power of hurricanes since the 1800s. His data concludes there have been no significant increase in either category. Furthermore, the United Nations' Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change states, “There has been no systematic increase in the frequency of extreme weather events, and the ongoing rise in sea level that began with the end of the ice age continues with no great increase in magnitude.” Thus, climate change has not contributed to new weather patterns.
Another overreaction perpetuated by many climate alarmists is that rising sea levels will be deleterious to our coast. NASA predicts sea level elevation will increase a foot by 2100, but this does not have to devastate coastal communities. For example, Holland is a naturally low-elevated nation, yet they have built their nation’s infrastructure around their elevation. If Holland can thrive while being twenty-two feet under water, then other nations above sea level can do the same. Coastal cities like Miami and Houston can follow this example and orchestrate city projects against rising sea level.
Climate alarmists advocate for the elimination of fossil fuels altogether. Considering the energy alternatives, though, this is not an attractive option. Wind, solar, and hydropower are unreliable sources. Even after the government spends billions of dollars on subsidies for alternative sources, these energy options only make up around two percent of our total energy consumption, according to the U.S. Energy Information Administration. Geothermal, wind, solar, and biofuels remain extremely inaccessible to major grids and substantially increase the risk for blackouts. Solar power is inconsistent, difficult to store, and cannot meet our electricity demand. Hydropower is dangerous for river habitats. Wind and solar are temperamental, only functioning in certain weather conditions. By comparison, however, we can control fossil fuels. A dramatic shift toward alternative energy sources, like those proposed in the Green New Deal, would spike the cost of energy and create a dependency on capricious energy sources, according to the EIA. Additionally, if America stopped carbon emissions tomorrow, it would only save 0.052°C of warming by the year 2050, according to Forbes.com.
Everyone needs to calm down and let the facts guide us. The facts clearly show that climate change won’t end humankind and isn’t a threat to our existence.

"Yes. I really like PBL, because I have a whole week to research what I want"
- Melissa Gonzalez
The first week after winter break, students are greeted with the thrilling prospect of learning about something they are passionate about through Passion Based learning (PBL) which reminds students that learning can be fun. This year students had a surprise, teachers picked the two best presentations from each grade, to present in front of the whole school. The chosen students were Abby Warren, Carter Cole, Diego Carrasco-Torres, Melissa Gonzalez, Isabelle Coates, and Evynn Stallwitz.
What is the purpose of PBL?
PBL was created to teach students that learning can be fun. Students get to explore topics they are interested in. Recently the CSA Roar did a survey and 77.9 percent of sixth graders either agree or strongly agree that PBL is fun. Although the numbers for 6th graders were impressive, there is data that shows a decline in students enjoyment of PBL. Only 34.7 percent of eighth graders either agree or strongly agree with the statement that they enjoy PBL. The data suggests that its possible, eighth graders
become much less enthusiastic in their last year doing PBL.
How did the idea of PBL come to Cornerstone?
Around 10 years ago when Mrs. Vergult was a 7th grade Social Studies teacher at Cornerstone, she attended an educational conference in Austin, with her then teaching partner and sister. While there, they had the idea of creating a project that help students become more passionate about learning by having them study something that they were passionate about. The teaching partners then implemented this system in their classroom, and it was so successful that the principal chose to implement it school wide. Since that time, students have been greeted every Winter Break with the prospect of doing PBL. Even in 2017 when Hurricane Harvey devastated the city of Houston, and all of the teachers were scrambling because they had to get through all of their material, students were still treated with PBL after coming back from Winter Break.

The third impeachment trial in US history began on January 21st in the Republican held Senate over US President Donald Trump’s alleged quid pro quo in which he withheld $391 million in military aid from Ukraine until they began an investigation into one of Trump’s political rivals, Joe Biden. From January 21 to 24, Democrats and Republicans clashed in the Senate over witnesses and legitimacy of documents, but in the end, the Republicans, backing the President, prevailed.
On July 25, 2019, US President Donald Trump made a phone call to Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky. Trump demanded that Zelensky start an investigation on Joe Biden, a political rival of his, withholding $391 million of aid until Zelensky did so. An anonymous whistleblower, whose identity is known to a handful of distinguished government workers, released a formal complaint about Trump’s call on September 19th. On September 24th, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi announced that an impeachment inquiry would commence to amass the evidence needed to immortalize Trump as the fourth President in history to be impeached. The inquiry ended on December 3rd, and on December 18th, the House voted in favor of impeaching Trump on two charges: Abuse of power and Obstruction of Congress, passing the two Articles of Impeachment. After the ground rules for the Senate trial were adopted on January 21st, opening arguments for the Senate trial began, with Chief Justice John Roberts Jr. of the United States Supreme Court presiding.
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s proposed rules for the Senate trial had been discredited by Democrats, concerned that they might be exploited to “cover up” Trump’s actions. His blueprints for the rules suggested that each party prepare 24 hour arguments over the course of 2 days. A fierce debate in the Senate over the adoption of these rules commenced, but eventually McConnell’s blueprint was passed on a close vote of 53-47, completely along party lines. Before it was passed, though, McConnell had quietly increased the allotted amount of time to prepare arguments from 2 days to 3 days, allowing each side some elbow room. After the ground rules for the Senate trial were adopted on January 21, the Senate trial officially started.
Democrats had a very straightforward accusation; that Trump is a threat to national security and he must be ousted in a Senate trial, a claim which they supported with the evidence they collected throughout the impeachment inquiry.
Meanwhile, Trump’s legal team took several stances in his defense. They were able to defeat the Democrats in the amendment vote, which proved a significant loss for Democrats as many of the witnesses they counted on could not testify, but they also worked hard on proving Trump’s case. Trump’s legal team argued that his actions toward Ukraine have not been attempts to slur Joe Biden, but instead stemming from Trump’s personal concerns about fraud in Ukraine. They also claimed his alleged quid pro quo was to help with his re-election, which Trump thinks is in the public interest. This followed Harvard Professor emeritus Alan Dershowitz’s idea that if a president thinks his re-election is in importance to the citizens, any steps that the president takes for re-election are legal. Former National Security Advisor John Bolton and his manuscript for one of his unpublished books claimed that Trump had told Bolton himself of his conduct in Ukraine, but repeated calls by Democrats for Bolton to testify have been shot down by Republicans. Trump’s legal team argued that even if the information from John Bolton’s manuscript is true, that Trump pressured Ukraine for political favors, his actions still would not rise to an offense requiring the actual removal from the office of president.
On February 6, the Senate voted in favor of acquitting Trump on both charges against him. The vote was mostly party-line, as the Senate voted 52-48 on the first article of impeachment, abuse of power, with Utah Senator Mitt Romney the only Senator in history to cross party lines to vote against President of the same party. After the Senate party-line voted 53-47 on the second article of impeachment, obstruction of Congress, the impeachment trial ended.
Tension between Iran and the US is nothing new, but in recent weeks has escalated into even more violence when the US assassinated the top Iranian General Qasem Soleimani resulting in Iranian retaliation. This feud started in 1979 with the Iranian revolution, in which the Iranian people overthrew their Shah, creating The Islamic Republic of Iran. That same year the revolutionaries took control of the US embassy in Tehran with over 300 hostages, 50 of which were American. Eventually after 444 days, the hostages were released, but US-Iranian relations were at an all time low.
In 1980 after escalating tensions between Iran and Iraq over the oil-rich Khuzestan province of Iran, Iraq, under Saddam Hussein, launched a preemptive attack on Iran. Soon after the beginning of the war the US provided the Iraqis with supplies for the war, and after 8 years the war was won by Iraq. Then in 2002 Iran and Iraq were declared a part of the new Axis of Evil by the USA, with heavy sanctions being placed upon both countries.
With the start of the latest crisis, and after years of sanctions and political unrest, Iran striked. In September of 2019 Saudi Oil fields that supplied the USA were under attack by an unknown enemy using missiles, however after investigating the oil fields, the missiles were discovered to be of Iranian design which implicated Iran. President Donald Trump authorized an attack on the top Iranian General Qasem Soleimani, and on January 3, 2020 Soleimani was killed by an American airstrike in Baghdad, Iraq. Iran held nationwide funerals for Soleimani, to rally the Iranian people and vowed revenge against the US. On January 8th, Iran then struck back in Operation Martyr Solemani injuring 50, killing none. But again the US and Iran are not at war and the US even said only 11 people were injured. Iran's attack was followed by an Iranian missile accidentally shooting down Ukrainian Airlines flight 752. The real problem with shooting down the airliner was the great loss of life, in which 172 were killed, including over 50 Iranians. Despite it being an honest mistake, the Iranian people were angered with the loss of 50 fellow Iranians causing many more protests inside the Iranian regime. As of February 5th, protests on Iran have been ongoing for nearly 4 months. Iran in the meantime has tried to defend itself on the world stage saying it was a human mistake with many skeptical about the real implications.
Nothing really big has happened since the missile attack on the base and the protests, but behind the scenes a lot is happening. It looks like Iran will withdraw from the treaty on the non-proliferation of nuclear weapons, which could be in anticipation of a nuclear war. The US on the other hand is planning a containment policy to counter Iran and stop its attacks on the US allies. If you look at history, there have been over 5 Iranian crises in 41 years and every time it seems like nuclear war will happen. Then the leaders make a decisive decision, ending the crisis or the drama dies. War is unlikely, however the next strike is yet to come. Maybe Iran might launch a surprise attack on an American military base, however both nations are occupied with pressing issues. The US is dealing with the election and impeachment trial of Donald Trump (go read the other roar article) and Iran is defending itself for the accidental airliner incident and its own protests.

The Spring Branch High School Museum is important for remembering the history of this district; however, the space could serve a much better purpose to benefit Cornerstone Academy. On October 21st, 2017 Della Mousner the museum director and member of the SBHS alumni opened the SBHS Museum inside Cornerstone Academy which is at the old location of the original library for SBHS and later Cornerstone and Academy of Choice.
The museum director Della Mousner has been working on the collection since 1984. There are banners, sports pictures, art, band photos, and trophies. The museum is a two-story space across from our library and next to our auditorium. In order to get into the museum you need to schedule an appointment with the alumni association. The alumni association has an open house every year. This year's open house will be on March 28th from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm. When I asked Ms. Purdy, the director of Cornerstone Academy if many people visit the SBHS museum, she said, ¨ I’m not sure. I’ve never personally seen anyone visit during the day, but there was a community event last year, and alumni visited then.¨
The museum is twice the size of our library. Before the museum was in that space, it was the school's library. This huge space could be used for a better purpose. The school district could turn the SBHS museum into a multipurpose area, to gain much needed space for both campuses. Mrs. Vergult had to get rid of thousands of books to be able to fit everything into the new library space across the hall. Each book averages out to 20 dollars. Mrs. Vergult had to get rid of over 4,000 books, which is a colossal waste of $80,000 dollars. That museum space could make a great place for more book storage for those books Mrs. Vergult had to get rid of. Those books could inspire middle school students to read more.
Another purpose for the SBHS museum could be for CESITS. If the district makes the space into a multi-purpose area, it would be a great place for CESITs and many other activities. Even though the district´s history is very important, alumni don't need that much space. The museum doesn't need science fair projects, mannequins and huge bears. We could put the museum on the second floor of the room or we could make a trophy case in the halls to commemorate the former high school’s achievements and history. It's a much more conservative use of space that gives more students space for academic purposes.
¨I believe it’s a matter of perspective,” Ms. Purdy said when she was asked if the museum should still be on campus. ¨It’s important to the people who attended Spring Branch High School in the past because it’s part of their personal history and the history of their community. There is an emotional connection for those people. In a general sense, it’s important to document history, and there’s value in doing that, but for those of us without a personal connection to the old Spring Branch High School, it can be difficult to understand the importance or need.¨ Next time you pass by the SBHS museum in the hallways give a little thought into why it’s there and if we really need it.

Ocean pollution is a grave and serious problem with the potential to destroy our planet. One of the world’s biggest ocean pollution problems are due to oil spills from tankers and off-shore drilling rigs affecting many fish and birds that die because of suffocation.
People also throw trash into the ocean which affects fish, birds, and people because it makes changes in the food chain. If all the fish die, then humans will have no fish to eat and other animals will eventually suffer. Because of the change in the food chain, that imbalance can create chaos in many ecosystems. If this continues then more animals will become extinct and there will be no way to go back.
People can fix this if more support is given to creating more environmental laws which punish people for polluting like throwing trash on the streets or dumping trash in the ocean. People are the problem but can also be the solution to clean up the earth’s precious oceans.
Another type of ocean pollution is heat because in the Arctic when heat strikes it, it will start to melt causing water to rise and will affect humans. When ocean levels rise, flooding will affect thousands of animals that live in the Arctic, especially Antarctica. There is a giant hole in the ozone layer in Antarctica because of the chemicals humans have added to the atmosphere..
Also it will impact fish because the heat will fry their eggs and they won’t reproduce as fast as they used to. Air pollution causes the sky to split apart and thermal radiation to hit the ocean. Overfishing is also a type of ocean pollution because some people fight over fish and take away food for the animals like sharks and birds.
A majority of people care about how ocean pollution is affecting animals. A CSA student named Juan Pablo Ramirez in 6th grade. said, “It is very bad for the environment and soon we’ll become extinct and we can not risk this rare animals”.
Ms. Rodriguez (8th grade science teacher) said she imagined “big clumps of trash floating along the beach and just washing onto the shore,” and she does not like that and many people don't like it either.
People care about the ocean because they like to explore the world. What is a better place to explore than the ocean? Humans learn so much about our world and may even discover new cures for diseases in the ocean.
Q: Why does the museum exist?
A: I can't tell you, but….. There's an article in this edition of the Roar that you can look at.
Q: Why don't I see myself when I look in the mirror?
A: Ways to identify a vampire, they don't like garlic, they drink blood, they don't have a reflection, and they’re Christopher Lee.
Q: How do you get someone to notice you?
A: You do nice things and get a good reputation, then say hi to whoever you want to talk to, or if it's a large group, and you're the class clown type, then make animal noises.
Q: Do you have a TikTok? If so what’s ur @ ;)
A: A firm NO.
Q: What is the meaning of life?
A: It's a book at our library, so go read it.
Q: How tall are you? - A person
A: I'm 5’6 feet tall, otherwise known as. Short
Q: This is my first year of middle school and I already
like someone. Is it too early to think about relationships?
A: My firm belief is anything before high school (cough, cough)
doesn't count as a relationship.
