Python Python Basics (2015) Python Data Types String concatenation

Why do I keep getting "It looks like task 1 is no longer passing" every time I attempt to check my work?

I successfully pass task one which is just name = "Rich" then I move on to task 2 and when I check my work I get the message "It looks like task 1 is no longer passing".

name = "Rich"
subject = "Treehouse Loves " + print('''name''')

syntax errors in one task often cause it to say previous tasks no longer pass. here you have a print in the middle of an assignment. to concatenate a variable to a string is just 'string' + variable. no print involved.
