Tom Clancy’s Rainbow 6 Siege: A Video Game Review

By Dylan Katz, staff writer

Do you like intense first person shooters with tons of strategies? Well Tom Clancy’s Rainbow 6 Siege is for you. The game is about you playing counter terrorists or terrorists as you defend a bomb, hostage, and secure an area. You play with five people on your team defending those objectives or eliminate the enemy team. As every round goes by, the tension grows bigger as your team may be losing and its match point and you have to clutch up a 1 v 5.

The game is adapted from a book — a thriller by Tom Clancy called Rainbow Six.

There are ways to go about the game. You could live on the edge and rush objectives, or camp in a corner waiting for action to sprout. That’s the best part of Rainbow, is that you can play however you want to if you have a good team and operators.The name of the game is to be either the best on your team with the most kills to brag that your mvp or take it slow and steady and get 1-2 kills. As a warning you can team kill someone. This means you can shoot and kill your teammates for the round. Read more

2020 Election: The Tea

By Sherlyn Osorio, news editor

With less than a year to go before the next presidential election, a lot of candidates are working hard to become the new face of America and capture the attention, money and votes of the American public. Here at Bradley Beach Elementary School, students are curious about what exactly is going on with the race.

 “There are a lot of new people, especially that dude with the really long name. I really like him,” said Henry Lleyva, an eighth-grader. 

Henry was talking about Pete Buttigieg ( pronounced boot-edge-edge). He is running to become the Democatic nominee for the 2020 presidential election. Whoever wins the Democratic party nomination (during a series of primary elections between February and June) will have the opportunity to run against President Donald Trump, who is seeking a second term. (More about that later).

According to a recent Quinnipiac University Poll, the four current frontrunners are former vice president Joe  Biden, Mayor Pete Buttigieg, Senator Elizabeth Warren and Senator Bernie Sanders. (A poll is a survey of a sample of people who answer questions, sometimes over the telephone.)  Read more

From The Fifth Grade Chef: A Quick and Easy After-School Recipe

By Aubrey Maher, staff writer

When you get home from a long day of school, you want to eat a big plate of food. Most of the time when you get home, there is not an adult. Usually, when there is not an adult home you tend to go for the chips. That is not such a good idea. They are not healthy and some contain chemicals like sodium bisulfate, a substance that is also put in toilet cleaners! Now those chips don’t sound so yummy!

In this series of articles, I will give you some quick and healthy after-school alternatives designed for kids who are allowed to cook. If you do not have much experience in the kitchen you should always have adult supervision.   

Rice and Beans

The ingredients that you will need are:

  • white rice (pre-made – 2 cups)
  • black beans (canned – 10 ounces)
  • salsa  (you can use any kind of salsa – 1/2 cup)
  • onion powder (1 teaspoon)
  • garlic powder ( 1 tablespoon)  
  • vegetable stock (¼ cup) 
  • vegetable oil (2 tablespoons)                 

                                                                                                                

Put the oil in your pan and put it on medium heat. Then add vegetable stock, onion, and garlic powder while stirring. When it starts to bubble, add salsa and set with a lid for two minutes. Next, add the beans and mix for two minutes. Make rice according to the directions. Add in and mix.  After you mix, let cool. Now you can eat! Enjoy!

Joker: A Review

By Henry DiZefalo, staff writer

“All my life I thought I was a tragedy. Now I know I’m a comedy.” 

Joker was by far one of the best movies I’ve ever seen. Joaquin Phoenix did an amazing performance. He lost 52 pounds for the role.  Another famous actor who had a big role was Robert De Niro as Murray Franklin. This movie was the first of its kind and was not a remake. It’s about how Arthur Franklin became the criminal mastermind, the Joker, Batman’s arch-nemesis. It shows how his life in Gotham City affected the way he treated other people. Arthur found out things about his childhood that changed him forever and made him evil. 

I liked how it showed how he had such a sad life and how he wasn’t really that bad of a person. He was really just misunderstood. He became a villain because he was mad about a lot of things. I didn’t like that it was so violent because in some scenes it was overly graphic. I saw the movie with my grandpa and he loved it but agreed with me it was too violent. 

I would recommend it to kids who are mature enough to understand the plot. It was rated R. I would give this movie 5 stars because it had a great plot twist at the end and it was the best performance of the Joker I’ve ever seen.
