Well, I don’t scream about ice cream, but the contestants on the new season of “The Apprentice” do. The task for the men (Octane) and the women (Fortitude) on the second episode of “The Apprentice” was to sell as much ice cream as they could from an ice cream cart in Manhattan in two days. The team with the most profit would win. How did these former/ aspiring future captains of industry try to sell as much ice cream as possible? By yelling and haranguing passers-by. Read More»

I have been writing movie reviews for The Citizen for almost five years, and although some may think that reviewing a movie is easy, I can tell you that it’s not. Reviewing a movie means you have to see it, research who the actors, writer(s) and director are and then find a way to express your opinion to the readers in a few paragraphs. As a teenager, this especially becomes hard when big blockbusters like “Avatar” or the highly popular “Transformers” and “Twilight” franchises rear their ugly heads again and again. Read More»
