We Researched the History of Mandated Vaccinations
Vaccination requirements aren’t new in the United States. Many infectious diseases have resulted in mandatory inoculations at the federal and state level—well before today’s health and safety measures were put into place. Check out this blog post to learn more about mandated vaccinations for various diseases in American history.
We Conjured Up the Story of the Salem Witch Trials
In 1692 Salem, Massachusetts, accusing someone of witchcraft quickly became a common occurrence. Mass hysteria and paranoia combined with a rudimentary legal system meant that anyone could be convicted of being a witch—and sentenced to death because of it. See what we brewed up in this bewitching blog post.
We Explored the #FreeBritney Movement and Her Toxic Conservatorship
In February 2008, American singer, songwriter, and dancer Britney Spears entered into a conservatorship with her father, Jamie Spears. This followed a series of events including, among other things, Britney shaving her head, attacking the paparazzi, and a very public divorce. With the recent news that Jamie was suspended from the conservatorship, we detailed the timeline of events in what prompted the #FreeBritney movement.
We Took a Look Back at the Copyright History of James Bond
