Teens Drink More Water Thanks to Schools

Less high school students are drinking soda, according to a recent study released in mid-June. Only 25 percent of students drink soda every day. That’s nearly 50 percent less daily pop drinkers than there were 10 to 15 years ago.

About 75 percent of teenagers had at least one soft drink a day in the mid-90s to the early 2000s. It seems we can thank our schools for such a reduction. They’ve removed sugary drinks and unhealthy snacks from the vending machines.

“Initially, people think that 25 percent is pretty good, but when you take all [sugary drinks] into account, at least two thirds of students are drinking these daily, and that’s bad,” said Nancy Brener, the study’s author, who is also a CDC researcher.

Brener says to further control soda intake, it has to start at home. Parents must have more control over what teens are drinking.

Easy Ways To Fatten Your Wallet

Everyone wants more money, so give yourself some. We are our own worst enemies when it comes to saving money. Two dollars here, three dollars there; it all adds up at the end of the year and you would be surprised to see how much money you waste. Most of us are guilty of the bad everyday spending habits that clear out our wallets. Here are some tips to get you back on track to seeing your savings account surge:

Make coffee at home:
In the morning rush the extra five minutes it takes to brew a pot of drip coffee at home seems like an eternity, but the savings make it worth it. Skipping the double tall-vanilla-soy latte at the coffee stand will save you around three dollars a day. That’s a total savings of $1,095 per year!

Bottle your own water:
Walking all over campus makes you thirsty, and it’s easy to pop into a convenience store to grab a bottle of water, but at two dollars a day, it’s an expensive habit. Fill a reusable water bottle to take with you five days a week and you’ll pocket $520 per year!

Autistic Students Learn Life Lessons in Their School’s Coffee Shop

A public school in New Jersey has found a creative way to help autistic students learn social skills. Thomas Macchiverna is a teacher at Woodrow Wilson Middle School who started a special class for autistic students and students with multiple learning disabilities. In this class, the students run a coffee shop every Friday morning and sell coffee, tea, and various sweets to staff members at the school.

Edward Lin is a seventh grade student who is in the class. One day, when a customer came into the coffee shop, he was reluctant to make eye contact with the customer. However, with some coaching from his teacher, he eventually does connect with the customer and ends the transaction with a smile.
