In many schools kids get bullied. Why? How can we stop this from happening to kids and teens? Recent studies they have found out why bullying is caused and how can we solve this.
Bullying occurs within a social context. Students integrate the values and social norms from the school and wider community social contexts as they develop their personal relationships. Bullying can also happen because the student gets a reaction they like. Teaching students who have been bullied some strategies, including ways to limit their reaction to bullying, can be helpful.
Bullying can arise from distrust, fear, misunderstanding, lack of knowledge or jealousy—all factors that schools can address in positive and proactive ways. Read more about how issues related to power and social status and lack of acceptance of diversity contribute to bullying. Bullying can also happen because the school climate inadvertently supports negative interpersonal relationships.

The U.S. Federal Government is a multi-faceted organization that has been adored and criticized for many years. The U.S. Government consists of three branches; the legislative branch, the judicial branch, and the executive branch. The legislative branch includes Congress, which comprises of the Senate and the House of Representatives, special agencies, and offices that provide service to Congress. American citizens reserve the right to vote for Senators and Representatives. The Senate is composed of 100 members (2 from each of the 50 states) and is led by the Vice President of the United States. Each senator serves a 6-year term, and an estimates ⅓ of the Senate stands for re-election. The House of Representatives is made up of 435 members, each of whom represent a congressional district. The number of representatives each state has in the House is based on each state's population as determined in the most recent United States Census. Each representative serves a term of two years, and each state retains a minimum of one representative in the House. In order to be elected as a representative, an individual must be at least 25 years of age, must have been a U.S. citizen for at least seven years, and must live in the state that he or she represents. There is no limit on the number of terms a representative may serve.
The executive branch carries out and enforces laws created by the legislative branch. It includes the president, vice president, the Cabinet, executive departments, independent agencies, and other boards, commissions, and committees. American citizens have the right to vote for the president and vice president of the United States. The president selects their vice president during election, and serves a term of 4 years. The maximum amount of terms a president may serve is 2. The president is viewed as the commander-in-chief, and holds the utmost power.
The judicial branch interprets the meaning of laws, applies laws to individual cases, and decides if laws violate the Constitution. It is comprised of the Supreme Court and other federal courts. The Supreme Court is the highest authority in terms of legal matters. It is made up of a Chief Justice (the head of the judicial branch) and eight associate justices. The President appoints justices of their choice and the Senate votes to confirm. Justices serve for life, although the average term is 16 years.

Every single October 31st, there is a holiday called Halloween. Many people celebrate this by either trick or treating, or putting up scary decorations. The majority of us see this as a spooky holiday, but do many of us really realize where Halloween started or what it celebrates?
Let’s just start with what Halloween means. According to our local dictionary, Halloween is the night of October 31st, the eve of All Saint’s Day. Just to break it down even more, All Saint’s Day is a christian festival to honor the saints in heaven. At the night of this festival it is said to be when ghosts and spirits come abroad. So basically, it was believed that the night of a holy day would be full of spirits.
Now, let’s talk about where Halloween originated from and came from. Halloween came from the ancient Celtic Festival of Samhain. In Celtic Ireland (around 2,000 years ago), this was the festival to separate the lighter half of the year with the darker half. Or the lightest/brightest season, summer, with the darkest/coldest season, winter. During this time, the division between our world, and the believed “other world”, was the thinnest, which made it easier for spirits to cross through. Since there were spirits roaming around, people decided to wear scary costumes to hopefully scare the spirits off.
Although this isn’t the entire story of Halloween(because that would take a long time to explain and write about) it’s the main gist of the story. To learn more about this, you can use our friend, the internet, but to make it up to you, I will include some random Halloween facts.
