News stories that need more attention

September 10th, 2015 | Posted by Sara in Uncategorized - (0 Comments)

Whenever I feel we are getting way too much Kardashian news, I begin to search for news stories with real meaning.

It’s my own little way of taking some control in our too fast, media hungry world. :)

This week I saw a posting about how to look more like Kylie Jenner.  My first thought was, “Why would I want to look like an 18 year old.”

So, today I give you my list a stories that need more attention:

1. New human species found in South Africa:

2.How to stop suicides on college campuses: http://www.cnn.com/2015/09/09/health/suicide-prevention-college-campus/?iid=ob_homepage_deskrecommended_pool&iref=obnetwork

3. Also, make sure to keep updated on the migrant issues going on in the Middle East and western Europe. http://www.cnn.com/2015/09/10/europe/refugee-crisis-questions-no-answers/index.html

Happy Early Spring!

Tomorrow is the first day of Spring!  Boy, do we need it!

I wanted to do a simple post highlighting some of the most interesting articles of the week.   Here are my picks!
