Have you ever heard of pizza farms? These are unique establishments that either sell pizzas made from ingredients grown on-site, or they function as educational farms that cultivate pizza ingredients, often on a circular piece of land divided into pizza slice-like segments. Some of these farms primarily focus on selling pizzas. They have gained significant popularity in regions like Minnesota, Wisconsin, and Iowa. These farms typically cultivate or rear many of their ingredients, akin to the demonstration pizza farms. Additionally, there are farms dedicated to other foods, such as a farm that specializes in “burgers and fries.”
College Majors and Marriage Rates by Age 30
A research study examined the influence of one’s college major on the likelihood of being married by the age of 30. Education, Plant Science, and Microbiology majors had the highest marriage rates, with 70-80% of them being married by age 30. Conversely, majors in Geography, Theater Arts, Music, Philosophy, and International Relations experienced the lowest marriage rates, with only 32-46% being married by the same age.
Online Education Shift Neutralizes Appearance-based Bias in Grading
During the COVID-19 pandemic, the transition to online learning revealed an interesting change in academic performance. Research shows that attractive female students, who were previously found to receive higher grades, experienced a leveling of this advantage when classes moved to a virtual format.
This finding suggests that biases based on physical appearance may have played a role in grading before the pandemic. The online learning environment, which often involves less face-to-face interaction, may have reduced the impact of attractiveness on academic evaluations. This highlights the importance of addressing appearance-based biases in educational settings to ensure fair and equitable assessment for all students.
From Punishment to Pioneering: Thurgood Marshall’s Constitutional Journey
Once, a school principal disciplined a mischievous student by making them sit in the basement and read the U.S. Constitution. That student, Thurgood Marshall, memorized the entire document in the process. Later in life, Marshall achieved the historic milestone of becoming the first African American Supreme Court Justice. As a civil rights advocate, he played an instrumental role in dismantling racial segregation and transforming the American legal landscape. Notably, Marshall argued and won the landmark case Brown v. Board of Education, which declared segregated public schools unconstitutional.
