Thank you for reading today’s edition of Grateful Gazette 😌

Here’s what to know for Monday:

  • 150-million-year-old fossil site revealed

  • Dog’s journey from California to Michigan captures hearts

  • The teen who turned her passion into a teaching career


Hidden within Wyoming's rugged badlands lies a gem straight out of a dino enthusiast's wildest dreams—the Jurassic Mile.

Spanning just over two and a half square kilometers, this slice of ancient history is like a time capsule, preserving remnants of a world that existed 150 million years ago.

Picture towering sauropods stretching 16 meters tall, tipping the scales at over 70 tons, roaming freely in what we now call North America and Eurasia.

Yep, it was a time when "go big or go home" was taken very, very seriously.

But what's the deal with the Jurassic Mile?

It's not just any ol' fossil site.

Scientists are pulling out all the stops here, unearthing everything from granddaddies of long-necked sauropods to OG predators like the Allosaurus, aka the T. rex's distant cousin.

And it's not just bones they're finding.

Nope, it's a whole prehistoric ecosystem—fossilized plants, ancient riverbeds, and even evidence of a watering hole that would put your local hangout spot to shame.

Scientists are uncovering preserved trackways of these ancient giants, reconstructing how these behemoths moved and grooved back in the day.

Turns out, these dudes weren't just lounging around.

Nope, they were speed demons, clocking in at over 25 kilometers an hour!

And the best part?

This is just the beginning.

With nearly two decades left on its lease, the Jurassic Mile is poised to spill even more secrets about the golden age of the dinosaurs.

Shania Muhammad is the high schooler who's rewriting the rulebook on education.

She blazed through college by age 15, landing her a teaching job at just 16 – making her the youngest teacher in the entire US. How's that for a resume?

Shania credits her older siblings for setting the academic bar sky-high.

While we were all fumbling with homework, she was churning out college-level essays like it was no big deal

But teaching at 16?

Shania's dove in headfirst, making sure to grab her driver's license first – safety first, folks!

Now, her classroom is a hive of creativity and energy.

No snooze-worthy lectures here; it's all about group projects, debates, and maybe even a little impromptu dance-off.

So next time you think you're too young to chase your dreams, just remember Shania. She's proof that age is just a number, and nothing can stop you from reaching for the stars.

Struggling to stay present?

Take a leaf out of the mindfulness book and embrace acceptance!

Instead of fighting the flow, try riding the waves of life with a smile.

Whether it's a rainy day or a traffic jam, acknowledge the moment and let it be.

Remember, acceptance isn't about giving up, it's about letting go of what you can't control and focusing on what you can.

So, next time life throws a curveball, roll with it like a boss!
