Is Stress and Anxiety Hurting Your Academic Performance?

Is Stress and Anxiety Hurting Your Academic Performance?

When you arrive at College you are immediately hit with a multitude of pressures. These pressures—causing overwhelming stress—include:

  • Significant amounts of homework assignments and deadlines
  • Critical reviews by professors
  • Dealing with housing problems
  • Competitive grade performance
  • Lack of personal support systems
  • Inability to cope with stress and anxiety

The overwhelming psychological stress that the average student faces can seriously affect their mental focus while studying and the recall of information when taking tests. Test performance anxiety is quite common and can leave a student mentally blank when the pressure seems to boil-over!

These pressures are exponentially increased by trying to maintain part-time employment, extra- curricular activities and personal relationships. It becomes “too much on your plate”. But what can you do?

The common remedy is medication and counseling. Unfortunately, the medications can have nasty side effects and counseling can be frustrating with few immediate results.

Chopra

Priyanka Chopra & Nick Jonas Are Married

Bollywood’s highest paid actress Priyanka Chopra, 36, and popstar Nick Jonas, 26, are now married after a four-month engagement.

The high profile couple tied the knot with both a Christian ceremony on Saturday—officiated by Jonas’ father—and a traditional Hindu ceremony on Sunday, at the stunning Umaid Bhawan Palace in Jodhpur, Rajasthan in India. The two ceremonies were conducted to honour the faith and culture of both families.

Chopra wore a Ralph Lauren wedding gown, while Jonas sported a suit by the same fashion house. The newlyweds were personally congratulated by the famed designer, who had custom-designed Chopra’s dress. In an Instagram post, he said: “Congratulations to Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas on the occasion of their wedding. Ralph Lauren is honoured to have dressed the couple as well as the members of their wedding party.”

Although Chopra admitted to Jonas being the first to reach out to her via Twitter back in 2016, the pair hadn’t actually met until 2017. Their relationship was sprung into the public sphere in 2018.

In an Instagram post, Chopra said: “One of the most spocialthings that our relationship has given us is a merging of families who love and respect each other’s faiths and cultures. And so planning our wedding with an amalgamation of both was so, so amazing. An important part of the pre wedding rituals for the girl in an Indian wedding is the Mehendi. Once again we made it our own and it was an afternoon that kicked off the celebrations in the way we both dreamed.”

Chopra won the Miss World beauty pageant in 2000 which opened doors to an illustrious career in film. She broke into the US film and television scene with titles such as A Kid Like Jake and Ventilator. In 2017, Forbes magazine included the access in a list of the world’s 100 most powerful women.

Nick Jonas is best known for being in the Jonas Brothers, a band he formed with his brothers. The poster has since gone on to find success in a solo career and was a mentor alongside Demi Lovato in the UK’s hit talent how, The X Factor.

Fake News

“Fake News” on Facebook is Leading to Death, Say Nigerian Police

Nigerian police say that fake news shared on Facebook is causing the deaths of many innocent people in the country.

On June 23 2018, violent, incendiary images of mutilated children, burned down homes and bloodied corpses piled in mass graves began to circulate on the popular social media site. The Facebook users who published these images reported that they were Berom Christians who were murdered by Fulani Muslims in the massacre of the Gashish district of Plateau State in Nigeria.

While a massacre did occur during this time in the Gashish district, the images and videos published were not created over the weekend of June 23, and some had, in fact, been shared months earlier. The image of a mutilated baby was shared with a call for God to “wipe out the entire generation of the killers of this innocent child”—in reference to Fulani Muslims. Elsewhere, a video in which a man’s head was cut open had not even originated from Nigeria, it was recorded in Congo-Brazzaville in 2012, six years earlier, but was used as propaganda to elicit hatred and action against the Fulani community.

Some of these circulations had accrued a violent, fatal reaction among some Berom Facebook users. Speaking with the BBC, a Berom youth leader said, “As soon as we saw those images, we wanted to just strangle any Fulani man standing next to us.”

One story that particularly stands out, is that of potato seller from Jos, Ali Alhaji Muhammed.

A mob of Berom men on the prowl for Fulani Muslims and armed with knives and machetes had blocked a road that Alhaji Muhammed was traveling back home on. They murdered Alhaji Muhammad. His body, brutally mutilated, was found three days later. The potato seller was one of 11 men pulled from cars killed on the June 24, the day following the surge of misleading information circulating Facebook about the Gashish massacre. The police and military in Plateau State believe these images fuelled the violence that occurred on June 24.

Tyopev Terna Matthias, a public relations officer for the Plateau State police said, “It was the pictures, the supposed pictures that emanated from the attack [in Gashish].

“Jos South was not under attack. But because of those images they saw, the next day, roads were blocked. People died. Vehicles were burned. So many people died.”

Matthias indicated that this content is highly misleading and dangerous, adding, “Fake news on Facebook is killing people.”

This comes amid much media scrutiny on Facebook’s policy on fake news.

Wear a Tie

Put down That Hoodie and Wear a Tie Instead!

T-shirts and hoodies are great, but sometimes college events require a tie. Fortunately, it’s possible to look sharp on a college budget. Here’s how to wear a tie and dress for those dapper college events.

Fraternity or group events

Classic two-color striped ties are perfect for fraternity or other organization events. These ties stand out, especially when an entire group wears the same tie. Standard ties, skinny ties, bow ties, socks, suspenders, pocket squares. Striped ties come in a wide variety of styles and color combos, so it’s easy to match group or college colors.

Class presentations

Giving a class presentation or thesis is about more than quality content. Impressions count. No fidgeting, make eye contact, avoid saying ‘like’ or ‘um’ and don’t wear distracting clothing. Even if it’s not required, it’s a good idea to skip the joggers and instead put on chinos or slacks, a button-down shirt and wear a tie. Plaid or geometric pattern ties are great neutral designs that won’t distract the audience. (A neon-colored tie or bold novelty print, on the other hand, would be a distraction.) Since it’s important to look at ease in front of an audience, choose a tie style that’s comfortable. This may be a slim 2.5-inch tie or a contemporary 3.25-inch tie.

Formals

Hopefully, it goes without saying that college formals and semi-formals require you to wear a tie. Whether this tie is worn with a tux, suit or simply a dress shirt and slacks varies from school to school. Definitely ask around to find out the level of formality expected.

If a tuxedo is suggested, a black bow tie and black or white pocket square is traditional. If wearing a suit, either a necktie or bow tie is acceptable. Though optional, adding a pocket square is a nice touch, too. Paisley, tone-on-tone stripes or textured solid ties are great for formal events. For those with dates, the tie should coordinate with her dress. This isn’t prom, so it’s not necessary to perfectly match a solid tie to the dress color. However, a pattern tie in similar colors is a great choice.

A dress shirt and slacks allows the most flexibility. A necktie or bow tie will do, but it doesn’t have to coordinate with a date’s attire. Unstained, unwrinkled and proportionate for one’s body type is what counts.

Sometimes, the fraternity, club or organization hosting the formal will have custom ties made for its members. These ties are typically worn with a suit or dress shirt and slacks, not a tuxedo. However, if given a tie to wear, check to see if there is an additional dress code. (Suit color, shirt color, etc.)

Job interviews

As senior year winds down, the job search begins. Landing a job interview is a huge accomplishment, so it should go without saying that this is not the time or place to dress casual. In fact, it’s better to be overdressed than underdressed at a job interview. A dark-colored suit paired with a conservative necktie (i.e. 3-inches to 3.5-inches wide) are the most appropriate choices. Tie colors shouldn’t vary much from navy blue or burgundy in solid or subtle designs.

Wear a tie for graduation

Graduation is a time to celebrate. And that means looking good, even if a cap and gown is covering an outfit for most of the day. Give one last hurrah to the alma mater with a solid or striped necktie or bow tie in college colors. Novelty ties relating to one’s major are perfect for graduation, too. (Yes, math, teacher, engineering, lawyer, doctor ties, etc. are a thing.) Or, shop smart and purchase a pattern tie that can be worn to a new job post-graduation.

Tiemart, Inc. is an online neckwear and accessory retailer located in northern Illinois. The company specializes in budget-friendly ties for any occasion, from fashionable everyday attire to group wear and formal events. Shop www.tiemart.com for affordable neckties, bow ties, socks, suspenders, pocket squares and more.

Sector 9

Alternative Energy Vehicles by Sector 9

For years, one of the biggest challenges facing college students has been finding the best way to get around campus and Sector 9 Skateboard Co. believes their products provide the perfect solution! Since the 90s, the brand has consistently created premium quality skateboards for a wide range of consumers, made from various materials including wood and fiberglass. Their most popular boards are made from 100 percent sustainably harvested Bamboo, highlighted by their “Save a tree. Ride a weed.” campaign.

They’ve never been shy about sharing their mission statement, which is ‘We Make Fun’ and are both inclusive and transparent when they say, “We don’t care if you’re six or 60, we just want to put a smile on your face! We love making skateboards for the young and old, that give them the gravity defying speed and sensation they crave!”

Sector 9’s story actually began in 1993, with a group of college roommates, living in La Jolla, CA. Their house consisted of a bunch of good friends, a pool table, a mini-ramp, a ping-pong table and a surfboard shaping room all across the street from some nice smooth hills that led down to the local beach.  As you can imagine, with all of these fine features, it became quite the hangout spot. At the time, the group had a friend from Hawaii who used to always razz people by calling them ‘Nine Balls’.  One day he called to see what was going on at the house, but everyone was out ‘studying’, so he had to leave a message on our answering machine and asked, “What’s going on over there at Sector 9?”, which to the roommates meant a house full of ‘Nine Balls’.

Coincidently, one of their favorite neighborhood hill cruisers, that was a snowboard-turned-skateboard, had recently been stolen.  A few replacement boards were almost finished and just needed the finishing touches of a logo. The answering machine message was heard, and Sector 9 not only had a nice ring to it, but also seemed fitting, so it stuck, and the 9-Ball logo was born.

When people saw the Sector 9 crew skate by on these odd-looking longer boards, many times trying to alleviate the time between the campus parking lot and their lecture halls, the interest was immediately apparent, and production began in the backyard of the house. Lots of learning, and a couple of evictions later, they were forced to move into their first warehouse that would become the Sector 9 skateboard factory.

Entering the market at a time when every part of a skateboard was getting smaller, Sector 9 purposely went against the grain and began producing longer, wider boards, with bigger wheels.  This combination not only made the boards easier to ride, but also allowed them to travel much longer distances, with less effort required on behalf of the rider. After the initial launch, it seemed like the brand had more hecklers than they did fans, as people outside of their local area didn’t quite know what to make of these unique skateboards that were ‘built for surfers, by surfers’. But the 9-Ball slowly began rolling, first from coast to coast, then from continent to continent.

Sector 9’s following grew and grew and their families, employees, friends, followers, believers and customers all simply became known as 9’ers. Today, the brand is very much aware that the simple reason they’ve been able to persevere over the long course of this 25-year journey is because of their people: The 9’ers, worldwide. Like most long journeys, theirs has been filled with a number of road-blocks, breakdowns, wrong turns, mistakes, jump-starts, peaks, valleys, backseat drivers, victories, defeats, and occasional periods of smooth sailing on the open road.

Today, Sector 9 is a global brand, selling a wide range of skateboards, components, safety gear and softgoods in over 90 countries.  The company has always been headquartered in San Diego, CA, and they remain committed to creating a wide range of highly functional and innovative products for use by anyone and everyone—from the mountains to the sea, and everywhere in between!

Smoke buddy Air Filter

The Smokebuddy Air Filter: Smoke Where You Want, Not Where You Can

College dorms and common areas are generally not considered ‘hotspots’ of personal privacy. From loud music and social gatherings to the (not so) infamous Popcorn Arson down the hall, control over the sounds, smells and serenity of your personal space is limited. Furthermore, students who enjoy tobacco or cannabis products face even greater restrictions—both on and off campus.

Fortunately, for the benefit of both smokers and non-smokers alike, Smokebuddy has created the first truly personal air filter. By combining highly-advanced, HEPA filter technology with a versatile array of colors, themes and form factors, there’s a Smokebuddy to meet everyone’s needs—regardless if it’s a mad dash to class, relaxing with your suite-mates or a Saturday night blowout with your entire dorm. In your room. Registered with your resident advisor, of course!

The simplicity of the design is what makes it so brilliant; rather than filtering an entire room or area, Smokebuddy personal filters purify the air exhaled directly through the filter.  The Activated Carbon core is combined with Ceramic Bead technology to filter away contaminants and remove smoke and odors.  By eliminating the impact on your immediate area, your neighbors and the environment, you can tailor your efforts towards your laser-like focus on attaining a higher education, free from the shackles of wandering RA’s, unhappy roommates or letting a social life get the best of your studies. There are no batteries or filters to replace, no apps to download, no assembly instructions; the only complexity you’ll face is getting it out of the box.

Smokebuddy purifiers come in Junior, Original and Mega forms, the difference being the size and the lifespan of the filter. The “Junior” is perfect for purses, pockets, backpacks or coats and has a lifespan of 150+ uses.  The “Original” (and best-selling) is great for dorm rooms, automobiles, travel (and more), with a lifespan exceeding 300 uses.  The monster of them all, the “Mega,” is a beast, suited for the serious consumer. It’s great for apartments, dorm halls or suites, even the football team, and designed to last as long as your lungs will (give or take). The affordable, long-lasting filter is made from Post-Consumer Recycled Plastic (PCR) and can be recycled once the filter lifespans expires.

Customers can choose from an array of colors and themes, including several flavors of Tie Die (for the lava lamp types), Glow in the Dark (for you romantics out there) and both Camo and “The Grenade” (for Active Duty, ROTC, and Military History majors). The Smokebuddy Company actively supports Charity causes, including the Las Vegas Victims Fund and Children’s Hospitals, is active in the local community and sponsors youth and adult hockey and racing programs.

If you’re a college-aged smoker, you’re probably asking yourself right now, “Could it get any better?” The answer to that, of course, is “YES!” For a limited time, Smokebuddy is offering a preferred discount to College News readers.  Simply enter “BACKTOSCHOOL” in the Discount Code section at checkout and receive a “20%” discount on your entire order.  Act fast, as this offer is good only through the date of your first exam.

Smokebuddy’s motto is “Keep Your Smoke to Yourself,” which is exactly what it allows you to do.  We can’t guarantee it will make you an admirable roommate, but by reducing your impact on the space and the people around you, it’s a step in the right direction.  With regards to the Popcorn Arson and your snoring roommate, unfortunately, you’re on your own.

 Smokebuddy

Smokebuddy was founded in 2008 with the sole focus of producing high-quality, personal air filters, providing our customers the freedom to smoke what they want, when they want. We design and develop one-of-a-kind products that eliminate smoke, odors and pollutants while reducing their impact on non-smokers and the environment. Our products and sponsorships efforts support a variety of charities as well as our local community, and our warehouse, headquarters and distribution facilities are proudly located in southern California.

New York Jets, Sam Darnold

New York Jets Make Sam Darnold Quarterback

The news that everyone was expecting has been revealed: NFL team New York Jets make 21-year-old Sam Darnold their newest quarterback. The young player will be starting in his new position in the New York Jets’ season-opening game in Detroit, Monday 10 September.

What’s even more exciting about this announcement, is that Darnold will be making NFL history this year, too. He will be the youngest quarterback to play in Week one since the 1970 NFL-AFL merger.

ESPN’s Adam Schefter took to Twitter to praise the achievement, saying: “With Sam Darnold starting next Monday on Monday Night Football at Detroit, he will become the youngest ever opening-day starting NFL QB and he will extend the streak of having at least one rooking QB start on opening weekend to 11 straight seasons.”

Darnold made waves playing for the New York Jets’ second and third preseason games.

The team’s football coach Todd Bowles said at a press conference that Darnold, “kept his head down and he earned it” throughout the course of the summer. When asked about the growing pains expected with the new player, Bowes said, “The pains he gets that he needs to see, it will be an experience probably the first couple of years.

“We’re not starting him because he’s a rooking and he’s not ready, we’re starting him because he gives us a chance to win the game.”

“We’re starting him because he gives us a chance to win the game”—Todd Bowles

CBS Sports reported, “Darnold is very highly thought of around the league, and he might just be the answer the Jets have been searching for.”

Is this decision made by the New York Jets the right one? We think so.

Energy Boost

How Do You Get Your Energy Boost?

Article written by Austin Goodwin.

In a society where people have an unlimited capacity to do work in the palm of their hands, college students face ever-increasing pressure to fill their cups to the brim with courses and involvement. With the mindset of “go, go, go,” it is easy to lose track of what makes you go. College campuses are saturated with energy sources between convenience stores loaded with energy drinks and coffee shops on every corner. While these energy drinks and coffees will give students an energy boost, it is important to understand exactly how these beverages affect a person’s overall health.

Energy Drinks

Brand strategists prioritize marketing energy drinks to college students, the most energy-deprived demographic. Students view these energy beverages, donned in sleek metallic cans and rich with modern design, as the one-size-fits-all solution to their lack of energy without considering the synthetic makeup.

Caffeine, i.e. survival juice. Most energy drinks offer the same amount or more caffeine than a coffee of the same size. Energy drinks have additional stimulants in their mix, like taurine, guarana, L-carnitine, and B vitamins. While these stimulants are legal, the doses of the stimulants in energy drinks are several times higher than what is consumed in a normal diet. It is unsafe for college students to subject themselves to such highs and lows long-term, and should opt for a balanced alternative.

The plague of energy drinks is sugar, most averaging over 50 grams of sugar (12 teaspoons for reference). The sugar content varies between energy drinks, but the crash coming from a sugar-induced insulin spike and subsequent crash from the stimulants wearing off leaves students feeling worse than they did before drinking one. Choosing “All Natural” mixes that energize water and other beverages provide an energy boost without the crash experienced with energy drinks.

College students may find themselves chasing energy drink crashes with another drink. The cycle of ups and downs for the body is dangerous both mentally and physically. Add in the jitters that come from an unbalanced energy boost and it becomes difficult to concentrate. Students may consider a sugar-free variety, but the hidden effects of artificial sweeteners are unknown to most.

Artificial sweeteners

While artificial sweeteners like sucralose are calorie-free and sugar-free, they can still spike blood glucose and insulin levels, leading to energy crashes. Additionally, sucralose itself as a primary sweetener can alter digestive bacteria in the stomach, leading to long-lasting complications with nutrition and medicine absorption. Making drinks “sugar-free” by pumping them with synthetic ingredients doesn’t mitigate the negative effects, despite how “sugar-free” is marketed as a safer alternative.

Coffee

College students looking for their energy boost and caffeine fix but not wanting the negative effects of energy drinks choose America’s favorite morning beverage to get them through study sessions and classes. The warmth of coffee on a cold winter day or a long, lonely night adds an emotional effect not found with energy drinks.

The caffeine content in coffee for a home brew is around 100 mg, so college students can drink larger amounts of coffee than energy drinks and stay within the caffeine limit. However, coffee is an appetite suppressant and a diuretic; lack of hydration and balanced dieting can lead to jitters and headaches from the caffeine spike. Finding ways to energize and hydrate is a more ideal way to energize without the negative after-effects.

The bitterness and lack of flavor from a recommended plain black coffee is a detractor, which is where specialty coffee beverages at coffee shops gain their luster. A coffee loaded with caramel, chocolate, whipped cream, and sweetener tastes delicious, but adds more sugar and a crash akin to energy drinks. Additionally, the added calories from a sweetened store-bought coffee or home-brewed coffee can lead to unhealthy weight gain.

Students should consider the negative effects of the beverages they consume for an energy boost. Coffee is less synthetic and safer in large amounts, but can be inconvenient. Energy drinks are more artificial and concentrated, but pose greater health risks. College students need an energy source that is clean, doesn’t make them jittery or irritable, and is free of a sugar crash. Coffee and energy drinks hold their value as energy sources and students should consume with their individual pros and cons in mind.

pureLYFT

A viable alternative to coffee and energy drinks is pureLYFT, which is Clean Caffeine extracted from unroasted green coffee beans offering the same amount of caffeine as a cup of coffee. pureLYFT is all-natural like coffee, more convenient than an energy drink, packed with vitamins A and B complex, and lightly sweetened with Stevia Leaf. Whether students are using it at home, going out, in the gym, or in class, they can get the energy boost they need without the fillers they don’t.
