Mississippi Delta sharecropper shacks restored to rent lead to conversation about places with complex histories
In the famous farmlands of the Delta, where cultural history is as rich as the soil, there have been efforts to tear down the fabric of history it has come to represent. “Sharecropper shacks,” popularized during the post-Civil War agricultural system, were let by tenant farmers who would work the land.

Hours spent staring at a screen alone in a dark room, fueled by soda and candy and the joy of pixelated explosions, seems like the last thing this generation should be invested in. But thankfully, there is far more to gaming than most realize: improved cognitive functions, emotional comprehension, and even better social skills.

College can take a toll on every student’s overall health and well being. You’re not on a good sleep schedule. You’re staying up late studying, or going out with friends and lose track of time. You also do not eat as healthy as you normally do.
