So I ended up with a very small book, with the dimensions of around 3x5 inches and weighed approximately 1 pound, by Culpepper published in 1751 titled, “Complete and Experienced Midwife.” This book was probably used by lower-classed midwifes during the 18th century as a guide to child bearing and proper remedies for the diseases. At first glance of the book, the cover is made from leather and is probably the original cover, since the cover seems to used and scuffed with marks. Once you open the book you see that the font is really small but is very legible and it is written in English, the... [+] Read more
Hi, as a former student I might not have any relevance in the context of this website anymore. However if any teachers are interested
I stumbled upon this interesting project. Since it's a newsactivism class I believe that this setup is more user friendly, simple to apply and
most importantly interesting to read.
Hope you can make something out of this,
On a sunny afternoon sitting in a Starbucks drinking the darkest coffee I asked myself why did I chose to get mobilized for the Aboriginals? The answer is as simple as the question: because if I don’t care then we have to assume nobody will!

I believe it is our duty to preserve such rich cultures from oppressions of corporations who neglect the Amerindian territory and culture, but also against... [+] Read more
Many families today choose to structure their values around religion. Parents set rules for their children that align with what they hold true about a higher power. But what happens when the child’s beliefs don’t match up with what the parents want them to believe? Charles Stokes and Mark Regnerus conduct research to determine whether religious differences between children and their parents have a negative effect on their relationship. Their research is documented in the article When faith divides family: Religious discord and adolescent reports of parent-child relations. There are... [+] Read more
Traveling as a means of discovery makes for a new generation of thinkers to continue leading the human race towards viewing our world through a more holistic lens. French philosopher Auguste Comte believed that; “valid knowledge about the world can be derived only from sense experience or knowing the world through the senses of sight, touch, taste, smell, and hearing from making empirical associations” (Ferrante 10). As a young and experienced traveler, my mission is always: to connect on an ordinary level with my friends and neighbors from areas unfamiliar to myself and everyday... [+] Read more
