Welcome to this week’s Pulse!
Hope you’ve had a fantastic weekend. Mine’s been super hectic! I’ll tell you why in a few weeks time 😊
A couple of days ago, I Pulse got about twenty new subscribers in a short space of time, and to be honest, I have no idea from where… So, if you have recently joined Pulse, I’d love to hear where you found it! You can just let me know by replying to this email! I’d really appreciate it.
Unfortunately, this issue misses the news section. Hopefully, it’ll come back next week. Hope you enjoy this issue.

“Feel free to repost!! #nothanksinstagram,” Perry wrote alongside the image, which has since been deleted from his Instagram page but still up on his Twitter account at the time of writing.
Nobody is safe from hoax… Nobody should stop learning.
