Positivity: Part 1

Strange. Unprecedented. Tumultuous. These words, among others, have become familiar descriptors of the times in which we are living.

The COVID-19 pandemic has wrought havoc on life as we know it, and with that has come an overwhelming collection of negativity. Although the damage that COVID-19 has done cannot be minimized, it makes it all the more important to remain positive amidst the uncertainty.

The COVID-19 pandemic is challenging us in ways we could never have predicted, from unprecedented amounts of family time to home-schooling to working remotely — or not working at all. These sudden, rapid changes in the way we live, coupled with uncertainty, can feel overwhelming, so if you’re feeling afraid, you’re not alone. Despite all of this, keeping a positive mind-set can go a long way in navigating through this difficult time. read more

Facebook Launches

On February 4, 2004, a Harvard sophomore named Mark Zuckerberg launches The Facebook, a social media website he had built in order to connect Harvard students with one another. By the next day, over a thousand people had registered, and that was only the beginning. Now known simply as Facebook, the site quickly ballooned into one of the most significant social media companies in history. Today, Facebook is one of the most valuable companies in the world, with over 2 billion monthly active users.

Over the course of his sophomore year, Zuckerberg built what would become Facebook. When it launched on February 4, he and his roommates were glued to their screens, watching as an estimated 1,200-1,500 of their fellow students signed up for their site within its first 24 hours of existence. From there, Facebook expanded rapidly, moving to other Boston-area schools and the rest of the Ivy League that spring. By the end of the year, the site had 1 million users, angel investor Peter Thiel had invested $500,000, and Zuckerberg had left Harvard to run Facebook from its new headquarters in California.

From there, Facebook spread across the world, becoming not only an incredibly valuable company but also one of the most important institutions of the early 21st Century.

It has also remained controversial. In addition to accusations that it allows false news and fake accounts to proliferate, Facebook has drawn criticism both for selling its users' data and for failing to adequately protect it.

Nonetheless, Facebook continues to dominate the social media market, generating by far the most ad revenue and maintaining over half of the total market share.

The road by my house was in bad condition. Every day I dodged potholes on the way to work, so I was relieved to see a construction crew working on the road one morning.

Later, on my way home, I noticed the men were gone and no improvement in the road. But where the crew had been working stood a new, bright-yellow sign with the words "Rough Road."
