    soccer team’s fans. The soccer games seemed to be more about beating the life out of the other team’s fans than actually watching the game.

Being a Croatian or Bosnian in Serbia in the 1990’s was just absurd, you would not be able to live in the godforsaken conditions. In Serbia, for the Belgrade Red Star, soccer was a lifestyle. Being a hooligan for The Red Star was a lifestyle, a time consuming will to assert aggression upon others. On the other side of the spectrum, we have the Jewish soccer teams and their affiliates. The Jewish soccer teams did not for the most part receive acts of violence against them. But, the MTK, Ajax, Hakoah, and Tottenham all received verbal abuse for their association with Jewish cultural. On the bright side, being called names for what you are seems a lot nicer than getting beat to death for who you were born as. The Red Star took pride as a soccer team, where in history there has not been a large population of Jewish athletes, let alone dominant Jewish athletes. That is where the difference is made, Serbians were hooligans and soccer was their life because they had to, where the Jewish soccer players had a choice to be apart of teams and associate themselves with specific groups.

  • Astronomy: The Evolution Of Stars

    I look up to the sky and see millions of stars, and I wonder to myself. What makes them light up so bright, and what makes them a star? What does it take to create a star; they just don’t pop out and shine bright. I want to know the process, and how long it takes for a star to be born. I am also curious to know if the star can die.
