According to the article “Black History Month” by History.com, the month of February is also celebrated as “African American History Month” and was previously known as “Negro History Week”. However, now-a-days most people just name the celebration as Black History Month because it celebrates the history of Black-Americans. This article also makes a comment that Black History Month was first celebrated in 1915, which was about half a century after the Thirteenth Amendment was created. The Thirteenth Amendment abolished slavery.

Valentines – Creative gifts

Getting gifts for that special someone is hard when you don’t want to get them the same boring red flowers and the milk chocolates that are shaped like a heart. If you want to spice up Valentines day and get something that is creative and interesting this is the place to be!

Rose Bear– These are cute and can be bought for anyone. The rose bear is made up of 20 artificial rose flowers. It is a unique gift that is elegant and fascinating. The bears come in a bunch of different colors and cost around $70.

Sweet RetroViewer- This gift is definitely one of the most creative gifts. Much like the real viewers made in 1939 these ones don’t display comics they display pictures of you and your special someone. You simply send pictures to the company and they make a special reel out of it. After they send it to you along with the actual real viewer.

Exploding Photo Boxes– This is a very trendy gift. This is one of those cute Pinterst gifts. It is basically a box that has small cuts on the sides so when you pull the lid off the sides fall and show pictures of you and your loved one. After you open the first top another one is under it until you aren’t able to open it anymore. You can also make it but it would be easier to buy.

Succulent Valentines– This is a cute way to show that Valentines would “succ” without them. Okay but really this is a cute gift that almost anyone would love. A succulent is a small cacti, succulents aren’t always spiky you can always get a jade plant.

Love Viles- This is a fun and cute way to present that boring looking candy. You can put M&Ms, Skittles or basically any small candy you can get your hands on. Candy is always the way to go when you are trying to get something last minute but this way it will make it seem cuter and not like you just spent 5 mins. running around your nearest store for something to get.

Candy Boxes– This is just a box filled with your loved ones favorite candy and if they don’t like candy you can simply fill it with whatever you want. This is a simple yet cute way to style your candy much like the candy viles this is easy to put together.

We are all in high school or were in high school one time in life. School, life, and working can put so much stress on a student. Stress levels have increased greatly in recent years, and people are wondering how to cope. I am here to tell you why stress has risen and how students are dealing with the stress in their lives. 

According to studies, stress has risen 44 percent in the last five years due to worries about money, work, school and anything that deals with the economy. Stress is taking a toll on kids due to school. Almost a third of children have reported that they have experienced physical health symptoms such as headaches, stomach aches, trouble falling asleep or staying asleep. Parents claim that their stress has no impact on their children or that their stress is affecting their kids, but their stress does affect their kids some of the time. Only 14 percent  of kids claim that their parents’ stress doesn’t affect them or impact them.

Recent studies show that students in high school experience more stress during the school week and prefer to release their stress during the weekends by hanging with friends or family or by being alone and just thinking about what they should do to help themselves at school or work. When students are stressed they tend not to eat and they do not sleep. Also they are more shut off from their friends and family and talk less. Teens deal with a lot of stress and they do have some ways to deal with stress. 

The Coronavirus Now Has a Name

The coronavirus that has been sweeping across the world and spreading fear and death now has an official name. After months of being around and spreading from Wuhan, the virus has officially been named COVID-19. The name was announced by the director-general of the World Health Organization, Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, on Tuesday. According to Tedros, the name is important because it’s meant to prevent the use of other names that could seem stigmatizing or inaccurate. The name also “gives us a standard format to use for any future coronavirus outbreaks.” “co” and “vi” comes from corona and virus, while the D stands for Disease. 19 stands for the date of 2019. The World Health Organization set guidelines in 2015 that ensured a disease name doesn’t reference a geographical location, an animal, an individual, or a group of people, while also being able to pronounce the disease in a way that is related to the disease. Hence why the new name, COVID-19 doesn’t reference Wuhan, the origin of the disease.
