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
An article published on the website of Forbes's magazine reveals a new study made by researchers from the Boston University School of Medicine showing that ex-NFL players who started to play football before 12 years old performed around 20% worse in a battery of tests (such as remembering words and making decisions) than those who started after the age of 12. Some say that the sample of 42 former athletes is too small to conclude that those who play football at a younger age are more at risk of cognitive impairment later in their life and even if Dr. Robert Cantu (America's top concussion...

Hi, as a former student I might not have any relevance in the context of this website anymore. However if any teachers are interested

most importantly interesting to read.
Hope you can make something out of this,

The idea of pet ownership has been around for centuries but with a recent boom in the pet world, there seems to be a particular trend between pet owners and non-pet owners. However, pet ownership was not always allowed in certain counties because of economic concerns, societal space and for sanitation reasons. In Chinese cities, they have recently introduced the ownership of pet dogs into the country and have tested the result of owning a dog on the owner’s health (Headey, Na, Zheng, 2008). This study used 25-40 year-old women living in the cities of Beijing, Shanghai, and Guangzhou. The... [+] Read more
Over the last ten years there has been a dangerously rapid increase in the number of college students that abuse prescription stimulants for nonmedical purposes. Along with the increase in usage, Gones, Song, Godwin and Toriello (2011) explain members of society lack information about the consequences of misuse of stimulants and their potentially deadly side effects. By determining students who create the most risk for abusing medications, reasons for abuse among campus students, and the consequences of use, it will aid in creating effective treatment options for campuses to...

Do you really believe that taking Adderall is affecting the society? Adderall boosts concentration, which helps you get better test grades or increase your overall average. Studies show that 7% of students use Cognitive-Enhancing Drugs, such as Adderall or Ritalin. Someone that takes Adderall won’t have any different side-effects than a person that needs the pill because it’s a central nervous system stimulant.
The ARMY gives soldiers stimulants to decrease sleep and stay alert. Depriving someone of sleep can affect a person’s mind and can even alter reality.... [+] Read more
