Typography Project: Students @ The Stone Lab of Harry Stone IB Academy used their understanding of impactful font types and tackled the challenge of Pairing fonts. In selecting two or more fonts that work well together to achieve a typographic aim, student’s created posters that they believe would bring global awareness to issues that may not be well known to their peers. This issue displays the typography work of students.

Wyatt is a precious 9 year old North Texas boy who loves donuts with sprinkles and watching his big brother’s football games and track meets. In August of 2012, he was diagnosed with epilepsy and cata-plexy, a disorder that causes him to suddenly fall without warning numerous times each day. In February of 2013, Wyatt was diagnosed with Niemann-Pick Disease Type C, or NPC. NPC is a progressive, de-generative disease that is caused by problems with cholesterol stor-age in the body. Researchers are working on a cure, without one in the next few years, NPC is always fatal. We need to keep Wyatt healthy and comfortable as long as we can to allow him to participate in a clinical trial for a potential treatment that is currently in pro-gress. More can be learned about NPC by going here:

Victim Blaming: When the victim is held

entirely or partially responsible for the

transgressions committed against them. People are scared to report being

assaulted because they feel at fault, and

aren’t getting the help they need, and

their attackers walk free.

Stop Blaming The Victims.

Puppy Mills Puppy mills are big dog breeding operations where money is priority over the well being of the dogs.

After being saved from a mill

and adopted, most dogs

arrive to their new home with

diseases like: • Epilepsy

• Heart disease

• Kidney disease

• Musculoskeletal disorders

• Endocrine disorders

• Blood disorders

• Deafness

• Eye problems

• Respiratory disorders

The mills are usually over crowded and very unsanitary with no veterinary care, not an

appropriate amount of food and water or socialization.

About the dolphins:

dolphins are highly intelligent social creatures

That live in ponds, forming close bonds with family

Members. Dolphins in the wild are very curious

Animals and live in a world full of sounds, sights,

Movement, varying landscapes and changing currents.

What humans do…

Humans visitors to marine aquariums Often fail to see that the dolphins there Had to have been ripped from their natural Ocean environments, snatched away from their Family and pod mates, held in nets, carried in Trucks, hoisted into planes and flow for hours.

The traumatic transport: a dolphin’s body is not adapted to air temperatures

or the effects of gravity on land. So when a dolphin

is hoisted out of the water, she can overheat very

quickly. And the sudden pressure of her own body

weight over her inner organs can cause severe pain

And sometimes permanent cramps all over its body.

How can we help? We can stop transporting the dolphins to different places or to the aquariums etc.. We can also stop taking the dolphins out of their natural home.

 Help  donate  money  and  join  the  research  community  ,so  that  we  can  get  further  research  and  make  the  lives  of  these  young  innocent  dying  children  a  better  future.  

 For  years,  many  researchers  and  doctors  have  tried  to  find  to  find  cures  and  medicines  but  are  not  able  to,  but  ongoing  research  shows  some  promise  for  treatment.

Why Protection is Needed The great white shark is very

important for maintaining the

health of marine ecosystems. Because it is a top predator, it

plays an important role in hunting animals that aren’t as healthy as

others. It also decomposes of the

dead animals polluting the ocean. If you take the top animal

from the ecosystem, it could hurt other animals in the community.

Ecosystems have kept a steady

delicate balance, which the great white shark has helped


The great white shark faces a variety of threats. It is mostly targeted for its fins, jaws, teeth, liver oil, skin, and meat. It is also targeted by recreational fishers and thrown away with the other “bycatch”.

Because it is such a large

predator and does many things to help maintain the ocean ecosystem, the great white shark needs to be protected. Protecting the great white could protect the

whole marine ecosystem.

Down Syndrome is a genetic disorder caused by

the presence of all or part of a third copy of

chromosomes 21. One in every 691 babies in the

United States is born with Down syndrome, making

Down syndrome the most common chromosomal


For centuries, people with Down syndrome have

been alluded to in art, literature and science. It

wasn’t until the late nineteenth century,

however, that John Langdon Down, an English

physician, published an accurate description of a

person with Down syndrome.

You should support the NDSS (national down

syndrome society) because there is a lot of

kids of all ages that need help and with the

support you give you could save there lives.
