Writing an article for your school newspaper may seem difficult and boring, but it will give you an opportunity to learn about a variety of issues, meet and interview people from different backgrounds, and improve your writing skills. If you are interested but do not know where to begin, start by joining a journalism class or newspaper club. If your school does not have one, talk to your teacher for help starting one.

Start searching for new events or issues that have been brought up in school. For example, if the election for class president is coming up, interview the candidates and write about them. Even though you can write about anything for your school newspaper, you need to be responsible about what you write. You can be creative with your writing, but do not write about things that are too personal or mean to others. You must deliver facts and not rumors.

Try to stay focused on your topic so that your readers will understand your main point. Even if you are out of ideas and have a deadline, do not copy others' ideas. If you want to use an idea from someone else, you must refer to it. To make your article easier and more fun to understand, try to find a relevant picture or drawing to make your work more creative and visual.

Why do Humans Blush?

Blushing is triggered by feelings of shame, anxiety and anger. Image: thetimes.co.uk

Has your face ever turned red? Sometimes, when we are embarrassed, anxious, or angry, this happens. It’s called blushing. Surprisingly, humans are the only animals that can blush. Little children, teenagers, adults, and grandparents all blush from time to time. There isn't a way to control blushing or make it stop. It can happen anytime you are embarrassed or stressed. Don't worry - blushing doesn't hurt you in any way. Your face may feel hot, but you won't feel any pain. Blushing doesn't last long, either. Once you are out of the stressful situation, your face returns to its normal color.

Blushing is part of our involuntary nervous system. This is a very important system in the body, but we can't control it. It works automatically and without us even thinking about it. In addition to controlling blushing, it also tells our heart to beat and our lungs to breathe. A stressor is something that causes stress. When we face a stressor, the involuntary nervous system releases a special chemical. It's called adrenaline. When the body senses this chemical, it responds in several ways. Our heartbeat speeds up. Our breathing gets faster. The pupils in our eyes get big. Extra blood flows to our muscles. Scientists call this the "fight or flight" response because it's supposed to make us do one of two things. We can either run away from the stressor in "flight." Or we can stay and deal with the stressor through a "fight."

Adrenaline also causes us to blush. The face has many small pathways for our blood, called veins. These veins lay just below the skin of our faces. When adrenaline hits our facial veins, they expand. All of that extra room in the veins leaves space for blood to come rushing into our faces. That extra blood makes our face look extra red. The other veins in our body don't react in this way. That's why our face can be red, while the rest of our body still has a normal color.
