On Wednesday, Apple held an official event called "Far Out" to introduce the iPhone 14 series. AirPods and the Apple Watch are also on exhibit in new variants. For the entry-level iPhone 14 smartphones, 6.1-inch and 6.7-inch display sizes are now accessible. The price of the iPhone 14 will increase to $799 on September 16. The iPhone 14 Plus will be available on October 7 for a starting price of $899.
Even with the new camera, Ruby Raya, a sophomore, stated, "It just isn't enough for me to want to get a new iPhone." Although several other students would like to purchase the new iPhone, the prices prevent them from doing so.
Both can be ordered in advance beginning on September 9. The iPhone 14 comes with a brand-new front camera with autofocus. It has a more advanced camera system that can shoot pictures in any lighting. The camera also features an Action mode for more dynamic footage.
The iPhone 14 Plus comes in the following hues: midnight, starry, blue, purple, and red. Prices start at $999 for the Pro Pro and $1099 for the iPhone 14 Pro Max. On September 9, they will be available for pre-order, and they will ship on September 16. They come in deep purple, silver, gold, and space black.
With this new iPhone, consumers are forced to consider whether paying for a purportedly new iPhone is worthwhile. Many people are still curious about how Apple enhanced the most recent iPhone 14 over the iPhone 13 it replaced. These were the comments made about the latest release by PCHS students.

In 1988 a family member became ill and there was not much that could be done to help, but in this moment is when Rebecca Hearst decided on her career path going forward. She wanted to be a nurse, more specifically a nurse practitioner, and after the span of seven years in college she graduated to become one.
As you probably can guess, being a nurse practitioner isn’t easy at all and it mostly depends on the field you work in and the environment you have to endure on a daily basis. In some cases this environment can push some people to their limit.
When asked about a difficult situation she had to work in Rebecca Hearst had this to say, “In some cases I felt as though I was going to quit and stop on my dream and if not for me realizing what I would be giving up I may have quit that on day two.”
Some patients can be a hassle to deal with and nurses have to interact with them on a daily basis but how often do patients end up thanking them afterward? When asked how she is usually treated Rebecca Hearst replied “Since I myself am a nurse practitioner, I seem to get more respect from my colleagues and patients”.
This all can tie back to labor day and how many true laborers and hard-working people were not treated fairly due to their economic situations, and how they felt they should have.
Thus, next time you see the nurse, whether it be for an ice pack or a bandaid, think of what they have to go through and thank them every once in a while.

In commemoration of Labor Day which is the celebration of the American labor movement and the contributions of laborers to American society, Pueblo County’s Fire Department daily labor will be summarized. But, first in order to talk about their everyday functions the difference between a rural and urban fire department needs to be asserted.
The functionality of a rural fire department is considerably different from urban firefighters in terms of training and the standard of their operations. They have to take into consideration the amount of time it’ll take for someone to call in an emergency along with the other factors of time that comes with it.
Not only that but they also have to consider the amount of water they have and if it’ll be enough for a fire. With all of these factors taken into account the type of training is again different from what urban firefighters have to go through, conservation of water and time is the main reason behind it.Everyday activities don't differentiate from any other type of fire department, the exception might be that our firefighters are more involved with the community.
In anticipation and remembrance of Patriots Day, firefighters and community members of Manitou Springs hike up a one mile incline numbering at around 2,700 steps. This event is an annual memorialization of 9/11 for all those that lost their lives during the tragic event, including the first responders that continue to suffer from the after effects.
In appreciation of our firefighters and first responders PCHS wishes them a wonderful Labor Day.
Saturday morning, August 27, Pueblo County High School took part in the Colorado State Fair parade. This gave students the chance to show their school spirit. PCHS Student Leadership, under the guidence of Mrs. Kylie Richardson, sponsor, showed overwhelming school spirit and unity.

Labor Day is a tribute towards hard working Americans all around the United States, a special group being the emergency room receptionists.
In an interview with my mother, Melinda Bañuelos, she stated that she has been working as a receptionist in the St. Mary Corwin Hospital in Pueblo Colorado for about 10 years.
The E.R is usually one of the busiest places in the hospital throughout Labor Day. Most of the emergencies the hospital gets are through A.M.R.I, there are also many walk in emergencies. Traumas are what they mostly get such as, gang violence, stabbings, gun shot wounds, and plenty more. It's important to know what type of emergencies they receive, so everyone can be prepared and know how to handle a situation.
It's important to know what goes into the jobs of hardworking ER receptionists. In a receptionist's daily life they prepare themselves for whatever emergency they may receive. Bañuelos gets herself prepared by wearing comfortable clothing, preparing snacks and her lunch, hair up, and all electronics on and charged in case of a big emergency.
What she normally does is check people into the E.R, with correct first and last name, correct spelling, and if it’s an adult checking in, their last four numbers on their social security number. The receptionists usually get busier throughout the evening because many more people consume illegal drugs and alcohol.
When asked how Bañuelos knew being a receptionist at a hospital was for her, her response was, “Being bilingual and helping out my hispanic community, the non-english speakers.” Overall Labor Day is always one of the busiest days for a hospital receptionist.
