I just read this article inside the Washington Post called “Text messages become a growing weapon in dating violence” basically it was compiled stories of young people across the U.S. about the impact of texting in a relationship. I was shocked because of this one girl’s story, she said after she broke up with her boyfriend he kept calling so she started to ignore his calls. In a rage he then sent her 758 text messages in one night, wow. The messages contained over a million emotions ranging from “baby can u please answer your phone” to “I’m the only one u will ever need in life.”

Do you consider Ginger Ale a soda? It is indeed a carbonated drink; the only difference is it tastes like ginger. YUCK! Just kidding. Did you know that this “soda” has some important health benefits? If you have an upset stomach, this is the best drink to go for. You have problems digesting food? Put that pepto bismol down, because ginger ale can come to the rescue as well.

For those who don’t know SB1300 is the Teen Dating Violence (TDV) Prevention Education Act. The legislators who introduced this act want to combine TDV prevention education with sexual health education in California high schools. This will likely have a chilling effect among many school districts and result in a decrease in the number of schools that elect to provide TDV prevention education, as many schools opt out of providing sexual health education because of moral objections and federal funding concerns.

Have you ever been in a relationship with someone, and then you break it off with them for good, and they stay on your tab or just stay in your business? Well my friend Tiffany could answer that question, because she told me a story about something very similar.
Tiffany and John had been going out for about 3 months, but after going back and forth with their domestic violence problems, Tiffany broke it off! After things settled with Tiffany and she got some B.O.M in her life, she went searching for new love. Tiffany told me her new man “treats her good,” and she was really happy. She said his name was Kris.
Jack and Jill are in high school, their both very much in love but they deal with the constant rumors and fellow classmates judging their relationship by what they see. Even though both partners are sure of their feelings for one another, the constant buzz and numerous personalities put a strain on the relationship. Both may start to question how they feel, or how there partner really feels. If the couple never communicates their ideas and perception both never know where they stand in the relationship.

There’s a risk in drinking too much water?! IMPOSSIBLE! Water is supposed to be healthy for you no matter what! How can you drink too much of it? GUESS WHAT? Although it is true that it’s really hard to overdose on water, it’s not impossible to be harmed from drinking large amounts of water.
So I’m sure people have heard of the term dehydration right? It’s when the body does not have enough fluids. In simple terms, it literally means your body is being drained of water. That’s when you become thirsty, your body is craving water. Check this out, there is such a thing call hyponatremia. Drinking too much water causes low sodium in the blood. Sodium is important to the body because it helps regulate the amounts of water in the body that flows to the nerves and muscles.

At a well known all boys private school in Maryland, there are young teenage boys who target young women as a prey. Whoever gets the most sexual activities accomplished with a freshman girl depends on how many points and how much money you can get. The girls are put on a list and drafted by the boys, their statistics being height, weight, and bra size. The girls don’t even know about it, they think that these guys are their friends. That’s the impression they give off but when they turn their backs, it’s a game. During their summer school year, three freshman boys were caught and suspended for planning a sexual fantasy party.

Coffee is the most popular beverage in the world. When you wake up in the morning, and you reach for your coffee or when you stop by Starbucks to buy a cup of coffee, did you ever wonder how coffee came to be in the U.S? Or who founded it?

So as you all know social networking has taken over the globe. From Facebook and Twitter to AIM and MySpace, it seems as if everyone is connected coupled with the fact that it seems as if everyone has an alter ego when it comes to these social sites. For example, have you ever seen a person with so much Facebook activity but, little going on in their actual day to day life?
