    Career Conversations: Ram Srinivasan

      A Conversation with Ram Srinivasan What do you do as a neuroradiology fellow? Radiologists use technology to localize diseases, predict outcomes, and deliver treatment. As a neuroradiology fellow, my area of specialty is the brain. The fellowship is the last stage of radiology training. So what is the typical path for a radiologist? Becoming a radiologist can take a while: typically, after 4 years of college, you then go to medical school (4 years) to learn general medical skills. Afterwards, as a resident physician in Radiology (5 years), you learn to use imaging technology to diagnose and treat diseases…

    We Froze Out Hunger!

    With over 200,000 pounds of food collected, San Mateo’s annual world-famous, record-breaking Canned Food Drive has finished successfully. This year’s drive was Frozen themed, with the slogan “Freeze out Hunger: All People are Worth Donating For”. For two weeks this year from November 14 to December 1, San Mateo students stood outside grocery stores and supermarkets from Burlingame to Palo Alto, collecting food and monetary donations. Contributions could also be made online at smhscfd.com. The food and money are donated to the Second Harvest Food Bank and Samaritan House, who provide to all of the needy families throughout San Mateo…

    School is in Session

    Many schools throughout the Bay Area were closed Thursday and Friday, Dec. 11 and 12, due to the serious storm moving through our area, but not San Mateo High School. So be sure to show up for school, but bring your rain gear. Experts predict as much as 10 inches of rainfall in the wettest areas in the North Bay. Even so, only about 20 percent of our rainfall deficit from our historic drought is expected to be erased by the torrential downpour. Six more storms of this magnitude would be needed to erase the deficit, according to one Department…

Cyber-bullying is a form of bullying that is considered to be the most serious of all bullying , with offenses reported on a daily basis. According to Mr. Boise, Assistant Principal, cyber-bullying “Degrades a person publicly, and it’s persistent; it doesn’t just stop after one rude comment.” Because of the fact that the bullying is online and public, it is important for students to be aware of their actions and consider the perception of the other people who see what they are posting. What students don’t seem to realize is the effect cyber-bullying and bullying in general have on the…

JV Rules in LITTLE Little Big Game

San Mateo’s Junior Varsity football team beat Burlingame 14-7 at the annual LITTLE Little Big Game, a precursor to the Little Big Game held every year since 1927. Varsity didn’t fare as well at the LBG, where they lost 21-30 at an exciting and well-attended game Nov. 16. But JV’s win brings hope that we’ll be taking home the Paw again sometime in the next few years. Pictured here is defensive tackle Nilsson Vasquez, son of SMHS teacher Heather Vasquez, surrounded by his family, including his brother, sister, and grandparents and cousins who came up from Gilroy to watch the…

Q&A With Coach Scheller

Q: How are you preparing for the Little Big Game? A: Right now, we’re in season, so every week is another week to prepare for Burlingame, but we have other opponents first. We prepare for them, and hopefully, that will make us better each week leading up to Burlingame. Q: Do you think you’re ready for the game? A: Yeah, I think we’re ready each week for the game. I think as we get closer to the Little Big Game, it starts getting a little bit more intense because of all the rivalry. Q: What do you think of Burlingame?…

Volleyball Jumps Into Action at the Net

  This year the volleyball teams are better than ever. Lets travel back to when the volleyball tryouts were and hear how they went. When asked how the tryouts were and their predictions for the season, Lexus Kato and Alexa Carreon, freshmen, on the JV team said, “The tryouts were very good.
