How do carbohydrates impact your health? - ”The things we eat and drink on a daily basis can impact our health in big ways. Too many carbohydrates, for instance, can lead to insulin resistance, which is a major contributor to cardiovascular disease and Type 2 Diabetes. But what are carbs, exactly? And what do they do to our bodies? Richard J. Wood explains.” (L:M,H; SA:S)

Everything is Alive - "Everything is Alive is an interview show in which all the subjects are inanimate objects. In each episode, a different thing tells us its life story--and everything it says is true." (L:G; SA:A)

How to Spot Fake Screenshots on Social Media - "Fake social media generator websites have made it easy to impersonate a person or business and spread misinformation. Fake social media screenshots look like the real McCoy, but there are a few clues that can help identify fakes if you find yourself asking “Will the real Slim Shady please stand up?” while on social media. Students will learn four clues that a social media screenshot might be fake and use some online tools that can help verify them—and then put those skills to the test." (L:T; SA:A)
