I had stayed up late the night before, and I know I was not the only one. The National Sleep Foundation (NSF) has said that teenagers need at least 8 ½ to ...

Water.  It’s what keeps us alive.  It takes up about 60% of the human body and 71% of the earth.  So, it’s no wonder that it serves as an integral part of our everyday lives. We use it to shower and wash our hands, we flush it down the toilet every day, and we drink it with every meal.  It...
