Online Birth Announcements

Many families today have been using birth announcements to spread the word to the whole world about the new baby in their homes. Moments like this happen only once or twice in a couple’s lifetime, thus occasions like these are the ones we highly anticipate. Every one of us would be so excited to see the adorable pictures of a new born baby.

The problem that most couples encounter is that when the baby is born the last thing they would want to think about are the errands and chores that they would have to do to tell the world of the new baby. Sending birth announcements could be too tiring for couples.

Yet, family and friends would be very much eager to know all the little details that went on “from what happened in the hospital, what your baby looks like, how did you choose the name of your baby. How exactly will you solve this problem?

There is a little trick that parents do to save themselves from all worries and hassles of sending birth announcements to everyone they know. Why not use all our modern day communication devices tell the world about your baby? The Internet allows us to talk to people wherever they are in the world in a matter of seconds. It can be used to send your baby’s birth announcement.

The beauty of it is that your kids can even browse it later on in life for them to remember these moments.

The Atlantic Slave Trade: Crash Course World History #24

In which John Green teaches you about one of the least funny subjects in history: slavery. John investigates when and where slavery originated, how it changed over the centuries, and how Europeans and colonists in the Americas arrived at the idea that people could own other people based on skin color.

Slavery has existed as long as humans have had civilization, but the Atlantic Slave Trade was the height, or depth, of dehumanizing, brutal, chattel slavery. American slavery ended less than 150 years ago. In some parts of the world, it is still going on. So how do we reconcile that with modern life? In a desperate attempt at comic relief, Boba Fett makes an appearance.

Crash Course World History is now available on DVD!
