Technology can make life faster and simpler – and sometimes, more stressful. As employees complain technology is forcing them to work all the time, a new market is emerging for tech that helps you relax.
The Palo Alto school district’s proposed new academic calendar, designed to alleviate stress among high school students, has met varying levels of support and resistance from the community.
Superintendent Kevin Skelley would like to see Palo Alto students at all grade levels start classes a week earlier, on Aug. 16. First-semester finals would be shifted to December to prevent high school students from spending their winter break studying for exams.
