‘We’ve got your back’ helps students feel supported

The Salisbury High School AEVIDUM club encouraged students to wear yellow May 16 to promote Stopping the Stigma and creating a Community of Care. The goal of this club is to make sure everyone at SHS feels supported. In order to promote the idea of “We’ve got your back,” the club passed out yellow smiley face stickers and wrote the name of every student and staff at SHS on paper hands, which were displayed in SHS’s hallways. Students interested in joining AEVIDUM should email Mrs. Legath.

Chocolate-covered pretzels, caramel popcorn, peanut butter and jelly, pineapple pizza, salt on watermelon (yes, it’s a thing) - sweet and salty is a pairing made in food heaven. The combination is found nearly everywhere to the point where, on the surface, the two make perfect sense, but think it over and it’s not necessarily obvious why these two flavors work so well.

Why don’t these two flavors clash? Scientists from Monell Chemical Senses Center in Philadelphia and Utah State University set out to answer this very question.
