A Virginia fifth grader has made headlines for spotting an error in his science textbook. He noticed an igneous rock and a sedimentary rock had been labeled incorrectly and told his teacher who then helped get the message to the publisher, Five Ponds Press. The publisher reportedly sent a handwritten letter thanking the fifth grader for catching the error.


Does it seem like everything you watch at the moment features an Emily, from the popular Netflix series Emily in Paris to the film Emily the Criminal? Now a New York Times article has examined the name's popularity and why it's so common right now. It was reportedly among the top five names for girls in the United states in the 1990s and held the number one spot from 1996 to 2007. Apparently people started naming their kids Emily as an alternative to other popular names like Jennifer and Michelle.
