Any Good Ideas for Articles to Go in a School Newspaper?

Question by : Any good ideas for articles to go in a school newspaper?
I’m a junior in high school and I’m in Newspaper. It seems like we are running out of ideas for interesting articles. We have enough things in there about just current events and upcoming holidays, I’m looking for ideas more along the lines of something that would fill up a page and give the reader insight into something or even make them laugh. I would appreciate any and all suggestions.

For people who may have found this because they themselves were looking for ideas, I’ve written stuff/seen articles written by classmates about:

*A Tribute to The Beatles (basically the history of any popular band)
*America’s Caffeine Addiction
*Texting & Cell Phone Clichés
*Several Book/Movie/Album/Videogame Reviews
*Faces in the Crowd (ask a funny question to students, quote their answer, include face shots)
*Weird New Technology
*This or That (poll a classroom with “this or that” questions, include questions, possible answers, and winning answers)
*A Humorous/Informational Look at Social Networking Websites
*How Your Job Can Interfere with School
*Fictional Short Stories (great way to quickly fill up a page)
*Something each issue over any current/upcoming holiday
*Crossword Puzzle/Word Search (if you really need something to fill half a column. You can have these made for you online)
*The Dangers of Tanning/Piercing/Tattoos
*Spotlight on a student active in the community, or foreign exchange student
*Get to Know Your Lunch Ladies (made everyone lol)
*Weird New Laws in Your State

Just think about anything that YOU would want to read about!

-Nostradamus is an interesting topic…
-Celebrity birthdays
-“Today in history” blurb about significant past events
-Guess the teacher, great if you can get baby pictures or old yearbook pics
-Resume writing and job hunting tips/interview tips
-Money management (humorous and informational take)
-Spotlight on different cool volunteer jobs around the city
-Health issues like safe sex, smoking, drugs, etc-
-Sex issue at Valentine’s Day with relationships, sexuality, safe sex, STI’s, etc–Controversial especially if you live in a conservative city, but GUARANTEED to get people’s interest!
-Eating disorders (would be awesome if you can find someone who had one who would be willing to tell her story)
-Personal advice column with common teen issues
-Fashion column where you profile a different student every issue, showcasing clothes, jewellery, etc–Great to raise appreciation of all the styles out there!

Heavyweight Drug Traffickers Using Hackers To Bypass Shipping Port Security – October 16, 2013 BBC News

    Imperial and governmental entities have long sought to control the sale of
    Hallucinogenic substances, at the risk of plunging millions into addiction;
    the British East India Company profited immensely from selling Opium to the
    world’s largest consumer market: China. The practice once lucrative to the
    Crown has now been adapted by Capitol Hill, and enforced under the guise of
    a “war on drugs” which is a racket that has persisted unabated since the
    Iran-Contra scandal. It has been well documented that govt. entities have
    trafficked the very drugs, their policy deems illegal; to funnel currency
    obtained for federal appropriation. The Reagan presidency, most notably
    flooded many neighborhoods within the U.S. by sale of narcotics extracted
    from Central America; to fund and arm Contras against the “commie”
    Sandinistas. Has America’s memory faded if we’ve already forgotten Oliver
    North’s testimony, the crack epidemic we thought was only in the inner
    city, the shipment of missiles to Iran, and the armed insurrection of
    Anastasio Somoza’s U.S. sponsored authoritarian regime in Nicaragua; to
    which FDR once remarked ” Somoza’s a son of a bitch, but he’s our son of a
    bitch.” Now, the U.S. military in a warped sense is fulfilling the claims
    of Smedly Butler, and has been sent to nationalize and expropriate Iraq’s
    Oil reserves; along with securing Afghanistan’s lithium mineral mines and
    it’s poppy production which is now at 98% since invasion so it may then be
    synthesized into pure refined Heroin! Let’s not be naive about it, after
    over 43 years since Nixon announced the “war on drugs” productivity of
    illicit sale from the intercontinental narcotic trade has only grown at an
    exponential rate; either the U.S. effort in combating poppy cultivation is
    plagued by multi-administrative ineptitude or our agencies are complicit in
    facilitating it.?

    getting high.

    Criminals work with cops. WHen there is lots of money, there is always
    someone you can pay of to shut up. These drug lords are sitting on billions
    of follars. Look at Hells Angels, their people even work in the govt. You
    will never, EVER stop this.

  • Nathan Callidor says:

    Corrupt governments using hackers to subvert the peoples will and privacy,
    deal with that and we may care about the drugs.

  • jim man says:

    this means they can get anything through customs including weapons and and
    explosives. so what good does all the anti terrorist crap they are using
    all our money for do??? not to mention making every american a potential

  • jim cognition says:

    Well clearly, we need more big brother.

  • simplesheeple says:

    if world law enforcement spent their resources stopping real potential
    threats such an this one and les time collecting innocent peoples every
    internet move then maybe just maybe they would make the world a safer place
    from criminals and terrorists . the way the system works now it only helps
    them .

    lol, no… you’re a kid with a big mouth and a tiny brain yelling ‘the end
    is nigh’ about everything that comes out. A red herring, a tool for his
    masters to use. The only thing worse than a tool is a a tool who is too
    mentally inferior to realize he’s a tool.
