7:00 Wake up and get ready — The King’s Academy has different students on campus every other week. For the days we are online, I can stay in bed for a few more precious minutes, as I don’t have to make lunch. Other than that I’ll wash my face, brush teeth, and eat some breakfast.

I am Aditya Bharadwaj, and I have been a part of the instrumental music program at school since 6th grade. In 5th grade, when I was selecting my courses for 6th, I was deciding between band and “exploratory wheel”, an elective where students did 4 different activities (i.e. woodshop, cooking, art, etc). I ultimately decided on band, because I already had a modicum of knowledge when it came to reading sheet music. I decided to continue playing for these years because I enjoyed making music and performing with others. …

School rezoning is a hotly debated issue. For those who don’t know what it is, rezoning is a process where schools change their attendance areas. In other words, the school adjusts the area in which one must live in order to go to and actually be allowed to attend the school. For instance, if a school makes it so that one has to live within 5 miles in order to attend, that means that anyone living further than 5 miles away is not permitted to go to that school, and they must instead go to another school…

Recently in 2020, with the rise of COVID-19, there has been a rise in the number of nonprofits, especially in the Bay Area.

I must say, I have fallen under this umbrella as well, starting my two own nonprofits LearnPlex Education and Inspirante Education. Although it may not seem like it, the process is very arduous, and costly as well. There is a lot of paperwork to file, people to be hired, planning to be done, and many more things that come with starting a nonprofit. …

It all started when a group of Redditors created plans to hype the share of a dying video game retailer known as Gamestop. The hedge fund shorts backfired and hedge fund owners started to panic.

Large businesses are also affected, and some of the silicon valley tech giants are replanting themselves into more distant locations. For better or…
