In this photo taken on Sunday, April 7, 2019, divers visit a 5th Century B.C. shipwreck, the first ancient shipwreck to be opened to the public in Greece, including to recreational divers who will be able to visit the wreck itself, near the coast of Peristera, Greece. Greece’s rich underwater heritage has long been hidden from view, off-limits to all but a select few, mainly archaeologists. Scuba diving was banned throughout the country except in a few specific locations until 2005, for fear that divers might loot the countless antiquities that still lie scattered on the country’s seabed. Now that seems to be gradually changing, with a new project to create underwater museums. (AP Photo/Elena Becatoros)

Colleges Say Failure Is Normal

On many college campuses, instances of stress, depression, and other mental health problems are rising. Experts say today’s students are facing very different challenges from what their parents did. Now a growing number of U.S. colleges have begun teaching an important life skill: how to fail. Read more: https://teen.wng.org/node/5237
