Is Zac Taylor in Trouble By: Nick Cohen

0-8 is never something to be happy about, and I for one am done with these miserable performances. Normally, when a team is 0-8, one would be quick to blame the first year, inexperienced head coach. This mess, though, may not all be Zac Taylor’s fault. The Bengals still may be a little undisciplined, but this year we have at least seen a drop in false start penalties up front. Marvin Lewis may have led the Bengals to better records, but Zac Taylor still knows when to call timeouts. The people who say that they want Marvin back forget how terrible of a coach he actually was. Although Zac Taylor may not be the offensive minded genius that we expected, he has slim to zero talent to work with. Zac Taylor has to handle the job of calling plays for our historically bad offense to run, and it would be a miracle if he could even make the Bengals an average team in the NFL. How bad is our offense? You’ll see. Here is a breakdown of the Bengals’ offense. At the Quarterback position, the Bengals …

$14,000 Donated by Florida Bar to Hurricane Dorian Charity By: Gavin Isakov

Siesta Key Oyster Bar in Sarasota, Florida has a fun custom that is said to have started as an old fisherman’s tradition. They would staple money to the wall, so they would have drinking money for later. The custom is not mandatory, but most customers will staple a dollar or two to the walls after writing a note on it. Where does that money go, you may ask? Well, every year or two the owners, Jill Pedigo and Beth Owen-Cipielewski, decide a different charity to donate all the money to. They usually only have about six or seven thousand dollars, but this year word got around that they were donating the money to Hurricane Dorian victims in the Bahamas. Everyone, loving the location of their donations, started donating more and more until even twenty dollar bills were appearing. By the end they had gather $13,961. Stinger Clue, Athletic. General manager, Kristin Hale, said, “We never thought it would be that much, we were shocked.”  This is definitely a feel good story. I personally love t…

A Fort Worth police officer has been charged with murder for killing an innocent black women. The victim’s neighbor, James Smith, called the police to tell them that the women had left her front door open. The police officers responded to this call and went to check out what was happening.

How To Ask Someone to Dance By: Ada Christian

At The Hive we receive questions like “How do I Ask Someone to Dance?”  This is a challenge because middle school can be very awkward at times especially with dances. But only bad thing about asking someone to dance is  being embarrassed or the person saying no. Getting rejected hurts, but it’s not the end of the world. If they yes, the good thing is that you get to dance with the person you like. You will feel more confident and more willing to try new things. Here are a few reasons why I think asking someone to dance will be easy. It would be helpful if you are somewhat friends with them. The fear of asking someone to a dance is very scary : rejection. It could be intimidating to get rejected by someone you thought liked you. However it could be great and you would be going to dance with the person you want to dance with. Most people will say yes, because it is just a dance, but if the person you want to dance with isn't like that, and is not afraid of saying no, then you have to …

NBA 2020 Preseason Top Ten Power Rankings By: Nick Cohen

This offseason has been a wild one in the NBA, and many of the league’s stars have switched teams. Last year’s NBA champs were the Toronto Raptors, but they do not top the preseason list this year, due to Kawhi Leonard signing with the Clippers. The Golden State Warriors made the finals last year as well, but they do not even crack the top five. All these changes are very hard to keep up with, so here are my NBA Top Ten Preseason Power Rankings.
The Los Angeles Clippers: After acquiring two All-Stars in the off-season, the LA Clippers top my power rankings for obvious reasons. Kawhi pretty much single-handedly led the Toronto Raptors to an NBA Championship last year, and has established himself as a top five player in the NBA. The Clippers gave a lot up to get Paul George in a trade from the Thunder, but they believe it’s worth it to build another NBA super-team. Along with Leonard and George, Clippers’ 2018 first round pick, Landry Shamet, is expected to have a breakout year. The Clip…
