Attention Deficit Disorders and Online Learning: The Perfect Storm
Havana Garrett, Editor in Chief • November 20, 2020

Online Learning and Attention Deficit Disorders   This year with online school and virtual learning it’s become more apparent than ever that everyone learns differently...

Havana’s Horoscopes: Haunting Humanity
Luiza Decenzi, Editor-in-Chief • November 20, 2020

The stars will spread your fate.
