One direction is a british boy band. All the boys sing and play a couple instruments, but they have there own band for that. The lead singers are Liam Payne and Harry styles. Then there’s Louis Tomlinson, Niall Horan, and Zayn Malike. There band was created on the hit show The X factor. The judges decided to put them in a boy band. All the boys all came into the show individually. The band has been present since 2010. Liam Payne though has been featured on the show when he was 14 until he got eliminated. One direction has 2 albums out. In 2011 their album “UP ALL NIGHT” came out. In 2012 there album “TAKE ME HOME” was released. Currently there highest best songs are “WHAT MAKE YOU BEAUTIFUL” and “LIVE WHILE WERE YOUNG.” they have a bunch of other songs but these are the best. There labels are Syco and Columbia.

Harry styles was born February 1, 1994. Liam Payne was born August 29, 1993. Niall Horan was born September 13, 1993. Zayn Malike was born January 12, 1993. Louis Tomlinson was born December 24, 1991. harry styles currently has a girlfriend, Taylor swift. Liam Payne is single, as well as Zayn Malike and Niall Horan. Louis Tomlinson has a girlfriend also. So far I love this boy band. There songs are everything. They have style, looks, etc. Sometimes I go on the internet and check there individual auditions. They were all really good singers, and I’m happy they get to share that with everyone of their fans. I ❤ ONE DIRECTION!!!!


Harden Joins Houston

nba_g_harden_mb_576There was a talent for dunking. But James Harden’s rise from an asthmatic high school was a process. Each step of the way, he needed to fix something. But his transformation from a future superstar budding behind the wattage of his already fully established teammates in Oklahoma City to the anointed superstar running his own show in Houston took no time at all. In fact, it came down to less than an hour.

Months of negotiations toward a contract extension to reach the final degree in one final offer from the Oklahoma City Thunder, which, according to a Yahoo! Sports report, Harden was given an hour to consider. No terms could be reached. So, at around 10 p.m. CT on Oct. 27, while Oklahomans were fixed on their gridiron clash with Notre Dame, word spread through the internet that the Thunder had dealt Harden to the Houston Rockets.

Two decades was spent , and Harden, renowned for his ability to create for himself as he does others. In a way, his team chose his fate. Still, it’s a path that at some point became predetermined. Now it is official, Harden is the driving force of the Houston Rockets. He is The Man for the Houston Rockets. Jeremy Lin remains the focal point of the Rockets, but that is at least partly a result of the swiftness with which the deal developed and the trade’s proximity to each team’s season opener.


Our Condolences…


On Friday, December 14th, tragedy struck the hearts of men and women worldwide. Sandy Hook Elementary School fell victim to an event that marked the fourth mass shooting to happen during the presidency of President Barrack Obama. Newtown, Conneticut is mourning the loss of 20 beautiful children and 6 brave adults who passed away in tragedy that will forever be remembered. As a student myself, I felt very depressed coming to my School today. I couldn’t help but think about what could happen to anyone. I couldn’t stop thinking about those parents who are grieving the loss of their innocent children. No words can comfort them. We can only let them know how much we care for them. Let us all try to be decent human beings and post positive comments on the vast internet. Do not cause drama or post your negative thoughts. Let us only help one another and give our sympathies for those touched by this event. We are all affected by this tragedy in this country. Hug your children and hold all of your family. Let us all work together to overcome this inncident. From all of us here at Panther Press, we give our Condolences to those who lost family in this unthinkable tragedy.

Presidential Debate

Presidential Debate

Mitt Romney the Republican from Massachusetts and governor and the current President of The United States of America Barrack Obama. These are the two presidential candidates. Governor Romney and President Obama have done three heated debates in the course of the month of October, and in this article I will be giving a brief recap of each debate and in my opinion who won the debate and who I think will win the race for President. First before we get in to the debates I will give a brief bio of each candidate.

First Mitt Romney (Republican candidate), the Governor of Massachusetts. Romney was born on March, 12th, 1947.  Romney is the son of George Romney who was a former governor of Michigan. Romney has run for president before but lost to the Republican primary to John McCain. Romney attended both Harvard law and Business school. Romney married Ann Davies together they have five boys Tagg, Josh, Matt, Craig, and Ben.

Now to President Obama. Obama was born on August 4, 1961 in Honolulu Hawaii. Obama was raised by his grandparents. Obama is a lawyer and also attended Harvard, as well as being the Illinois Senator. He married Michelle Robinson. Together they have two girls Natasha, and Malia Obama.

Now to the debates. The first debate, in my general opinion, was won by Mitt Romney because he was more prepared and had statements that countered attacked many things Obama had to say.  Also, I think that hemade more eye contact with the people than Obama. Even though Obama had the facts and had more cold hard facts than Romney.  But what I say is that its not how many facts you know its how you use the facts and use them well and that’s what Romney did in that first debate. The body language is also another big thing, that in my opinion Obama lost by in the first debate. The camera made it look as if Obama was slouching as Romney was standing tall. That was my opinion on the first debate.

The second debate. I don’t think Obama could do worst than he did in the first debate and he did a whole lot better in this debate. He kept Romney on his toes and guessing and that’s what I was looking for, he engaged more and kept giving more and more attacks to the point where Romney had to think his plan over during the debate. Obama did everything better in this debate his body language, his speech, and his come backs to what Romney had to say. Romney did the same. But the American citizens don’t want the same they want a change, and if we can’t get a change in the debate how can we get one in the oval office. If you can’t tell who I think won this debate well by an landslide OBAMA.

Now the third and final debate. Like is said about Obama I am saying about Mitt Romney. He can’t possibly do worst than he did in the second debate. Obama can’t do better than he did in the second debate but to my surprise he did. He was majorly prepared and I saw it from the first word. Romney was also prepared and this is the debate that I was looking for, two very good presidential candidates prepared for anything, and ready to fire back at anything the other had to say. This is it the final debate. It was a very heated debate everyone ready it kept me on the edge of my seat through out the whole debate . But in all Obama won. He won in the majority of the things said before. He did well but so did Romney but Obama did slightly better. So, that’s the wrap up of the debates. Now to see who won.
