Summarize TWO (2) articles or topics that you find on the website(s) that you choose. You may choose two topics from one site or one topic from each. **Warning: “Go Ask Alice” is very explicit!** You are welcome to choose the other one if Alice makes you uncomfortable.

Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD) Seasonal affective disorder may affect as many as 14 million people in the United States. Many more than that experience some of the same symptoms simply because they work in dark or windowless offices. It is know that even the short, dark days of winter can cause people to experience a distinctive type of depression and malaise. SAD is defined as a fall and winter depression for at least two years, alternating with non- depressed periods during spring and summer; at least on disabling depressive episode; no other major psychiatric disorder; and no other possible explanation for the mood change. People with SAD tend to sleep more and have less energy during the day for recreational activities, and are less productive at work. Basically, SAD makes you feel down in the dumps for no apparent reason. Solutions for SAD include making your apartment or house brighter by keeping curtains open, using bright colors for bedding and upholstery

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
