    Six Facts About Harriet Tubman

    1. Harriet Tubman’s birth name was Aramita (“Minty”) Ross. She was born enslaved in Maryland sometime in 1820.

    2. Tubman escaped slavery with her brother, Ben and Harry, on September 17, 1849.

    3. Tubman is most famous for her role as a conductor on the Underground Railroad, in which she led escaped slaves to freedom. Estimates vary, but Tubman is said to have helped anywhere from dozens to hundreds of slaves reach freedom. She was once quoted as saying, “I freed a thousand slaves. I could have freed a thousand more if only they knew they were slaves.”

    4. During the Civil War, Tubman worked for the Union army as a cook, nurse, and spy. She was also the first woman to lead an expedition in the war and guided the Combahee River Raid, which freed 700 slaves. Decades later, the raid would inspire a groundbreaking group of black feminists called the Combahee River Collective.

    5. Tubman’s life has inspired countless works for art, including poemscomic books, and films.

    6. This year marks that 100th anniversary of Harriet Tubman’s death. Maryland has a series of commemorative events

    The last one really hits me. She had only been dead for 100 years. 100 years. Like, white folks are going on and on about how slavery has been over for hundreds and hundreds of years.

    But here is an escaped slave who liberated countless others that only died ONE HUNDRED YEARS ago. This is not the ancient past. This is still living history.

    Wow. This is so eye opening…..

    Every time I talk about race some white person says something like “you have to focus on the bigger issue”

    at first I was like what is secret bigger issue you all keep bringing up?

    But then I realized it was just code for “talk about something that affects white people too”

    Ain’t it tho..

    Chattanooga Police are investigating a beating they say could be classified as a hate crime.

    Police say the incident happened on Sunday morning just after 2 a.m. in the 2400 block of Dodson Avenue.

    The victim told investigators four individuals attacked him at the same time. The victim advised that during the assault, the assailants shouted gay slurs and he was struck in the face with a hand gun.

    The next day, the victim identified three of the four suspects. 

    Police say the charges were upgraded to Aggravated Assault and classified as a hate crime due to the nature of the assault. 

    Warrants have been issued on the three identified subjects. 
     
    The victim, Terrance Eberhardt, has contacted NewsChannel9 and said that he has had to have two metal plates put in his mouth, forcing it to be wired shut.

    "It’s a lot of hatred going on in the city between gangs and the homosexual community," he told us via email. Eberhardt also provided photos of his injuries.

    Eberhardt says he is 19 years old and a recent graduate of Howard High School.

    Chattanooga Police ask anyone with information regarding this crime to call 423-698-2525.

    Depend on us to keep you posted on this developing story.

  8. "People who do not love themselves can adore others, because adoration is making someone else big and ourselves small. They can desire others, because desire comes out of sense of inner incompleteness, which demands to be filled. But they can not love others, because love is an affirmation of the living growing being in all of us. If you don’t have it, you cant give it."

    We hear, read and watch a lot of people giving out practically the same study tips over and over again and it really gets disappointing! One time I looked for study tips on youtube and I ended up complaining, saying things like “Seriously? Why bother making an eight minute long video when you are just going to share the obvious, long-been-practiced study tips? Give me a break!”. We all know it will help to use flashcards and highlighters, duh?

    Anyways, I’m really on the look out for personal study methods because it’s great to have something new to try out. If your current study style is not working and you hear someone share how she studies, it kind of gives you a little hope that maybe that method would actually work out for you as well!

    So I finally decided to share my very own study methods with some other tips to help you guys out! I’m also hoping that more people would do the same since I also would want to find out more ways to improve my studying style too.

    Study Method # 1: Keep two tracker notebooks!

    • Tracker notebook # 1

           I use this notebook to list all the major topics per subject. I make columns like topics then the name of books/reviewers/test banks that I have then put check marks on those topics that I studied under the column of the book/reviewer/test bank that I used.

    It helps me keep track of all the hard-earned resources that I have and definitely lessens the chance of “Oh my goodness! I forgot I had that in my flashdrive! I could have answered that question if only I studied that test bank too!”

    • Tracker notebook # 2

            I usually bring this every time I study. I’m not sure with you guys but I usually waste precious time while I’m studying by counting how many more pages I need to read/ numbers to answer! It’s such a bad habit. This notebook helped me a lot since I practically can see how much more I need to do (like hello? I can see clearly I’m still at #10 out of 100!). 

    It also allows me to save time when I’m going back to that test bank/reviewer the second time because I can skip the numbers I found easy and just go directly with those that I marked with a star, a question mark or that I encircled! 

    Study method # 2: Have weekly and daily printable planners!

    • Weekly Planner

              I don’t have a “fixed” study planner because I have the most erratic study schedule. The good thing about printable planners is that you can print like fifty copies in case your mind changes fifty times too. *just kidding* 

    I usually put the major topics that I need to study per day in here so I could already picture out how my week would flow. It also helps a lot on you not wasting a day or forgetting other things you need to study for within the week!

    • Daily Planner

               This is my jam. I like torturing myself by booking all of my 24 hours each day to make sure I’m extremely productive. Of course you have the liberty of scraping out 5 minutes every 30 minutes for break or whatever that suits you best.

    I love daily (or hourly planners as I want to call it) because  I don’t waste my time debating on what to do next after I finish a task. Plus, I don’t go to extremes of  either studying or sleeping in way too much!

    As for the other tips above, they are very self-explanatory. Have a watch nearby to be able to track what time it is already. Keep your books nearby so you won’t have to go up and down or around the house to get them. Stock up on colorful post-its, pens and highlighters because you will never have way too much of them! Hahaha

    Lastly, have some jellybeans! Or chocolates or whatever! I guess you know why. :) *wink*

    Anywho, that’s about it! Happy studying! <3 If this helped you in some way, send me in some love messages! If you want to ask for more tips, let me know too! I already got some more ideas brewing up in my head. Ciao!
