For decades, marketers of consumer goods designed highly adorned packages, deploying bold colors, snazzy text, cartoons and illustrations to seize the attention of shoppers, according to Lan Anh Nu Ton, assistant professor of marketing. Conventional wisdom held that companies needed to do everything in their power to make their products stand out. But recently, there鈥檚 been a move toward simplicity. 鈥淲e found that the preference for simple packaging was due to the fact that pared-down designs sent a subtle yet powerful signal: purity,鈥 Ton said. 鈥淭his happened because the simplicity of the product package made participants more likely to assume that the product contained fewer ingredients, along with fewer preservatives, added colors or artificial flavors.鈥

Texans revere their history, so perhaps it鈥檚 no surprise that here, as in other parts of the United States, history has become a front in the political culture wars. 鈥淔or so long, the history of Texas was the history of great white men on horseback,鈥 said鈥Gregg Cantrell, history professor. 鈥淚t鈥檚 the job of the historian to tell the truth. If you鈥檙e inspired by the truth, great. Sometimes the truth is not pleasant; sometimes the truth does not inspire you; sometimes the truth is not heroic.

Many Black students at Fort Worth ISD are struggling to read at their grade level.
