People took to social media to publish political findings and opinions on their Facebook and Instagram accounts.  Others took to marching...

Anyway, back to American Government… My first day of class I was in for a shock when my teacher approached the front of the lecture hall filled with over 700 eager ...

Smiling causes happiness. Frowning causes sadness. Furrowed brows cause worry. 19th Century psychology pioneer William James was the first to hypothesize the correlation between action and emotion. His basic idea has far-reaching implications. Research has shown that more than just simple emotions are affected by actions. Our habits, our relationships, even our fundamental personality can be changed by adopting different actio...
