7 global trends in education we wish would make their way to U.S schools

by mfogelsonteel@gmail.com (Marni Fogelson) @ Inhabitots

New trends in education are always cropping up as countries compete to foster and produce the smartest, most promising students. But the measures to determine “success” and “intelligence” are often controversial standardized tests and don’t take into account the general mental, social, and physical well-being of kids. So we decided to take educational matters into our own hands and highlight some of the international trends that we wish our test-heavy, recess-reducing country would consider....

Restaurants Are Boycotting the NFL and Refusing to Show Games in Support of the National Anthem

Restaurants Are Boycotting the NFL and Refusing to Show Games in Support of the National Anthem

by Ana Calderone @ PEOPLE.com

Restaurants all over the country are turning the channel on the NFL as controversy swirls around the #TakeAKnee movement.

The owner of Borio’s Restaurant in Cicero, N.Y., Marty Borio, put a sign outside his eatery informing customers that he would not be showing football games as players continue to refuse to stand or come out of the locker room for the national anthem to protest racial injustice in the United States.

“Due to the recent decision of the Pittsburgh Stealers team to stay in the locker room during our country’s National Anthem the Borio family will no longer show the NFL in our restaurant,” reads the notice posted on Facebook. “If and when this show of disrespect ends we will be happy to show this product on our restaurant again.”

WATCH: Jordin Sparks Makes Her Own Statement While Singing the National Anthem Before Monday Night’s NFL Game

A nearby pub, Cooper’s Landing, followed suit after hearing of Borio’s decision, according to KATV. “Enough is enough. It’s time for these million dollar snowfakes to stop disrespecting the Men-Women -Dogs that signed a blank check for them to act like this,” the restaurant wrote on Facebook. “Hopefully things will change.”

Baxter’s Family Food and Fun in Hixson, Tennessee and WOW Cafe and Wingery in Chalmette, Louisiana are also refusing to air recent games. After facing backlash on Sunday for her decision, WOW’s owner, Brook Songy Anastasiadis, defended her actions.

“I stand behind my decision and I want to make this clear, the sole reason that I didn’t air the game is because I feel the players disrespected the National Anthem and that is something I hold dear to my heart,” she said in a statement. “That’s how I was raised, I have family members who served our great country in the military and I was taught to respect the National Anthem, the flag, the military and people in general.”

Players from the Baltimore Ravens, Jacksonville Jaguars, Arizona Cardinals and Dallas Cowboys have all joined in taking a knee or linking arms during “The Star-Spangled Banner” following Donald Trump‘s comments criticizing those who refused to stand for the anthem.

“Wouldn’t you love to see one of these NFL owners, when somebody disrespects our flag, say, ‘Get that son of a bitch off the field right now. Out, you’re fired,’” Trump said at rally in Alabama.

San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick first sparked the movement in 2016 when he took a knee during a game.

“I am not going to stand up to show pride in a flag for a country that oppresses black people and people of color,” Kaepernick said at the time. “To me, this is bigger than football and it would be selfish on my part to look the other way. There are bodies in the street and people getting paid leave and getting away with murder.”

Guggenheim Museum Defends Art Exhibit that Showcases Dogs Strapped to Treadmills Trying to Fight Each Other

by Saryn Chorney @ PEOPLE.com

Update: The Guggenheim has decided against showing three controversial art installations after extreme Internet backlash.

The museum released a statement on Sept. 25 that reads, “Out of concern for the safety of its staff, visitors, and participating artists, the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum has decided against showing the art works ‘Dogs That Cannot Touch Each Other’ (2003), ‘Theater of the World’ (1993), and ‘A Case Study of Transference’ (1994) in its upcoming exhibition ‘Art and China after 1989: Theater of the World.’ Although these works have been exhibited in museums in Asia, Europe, and the United States, the Guggenheim regrets that explicit and repeated threats of violence have made our decision necessary. As an arts institution committed to presenting a multiplicity of voices, we are dismayed that we must withhold works of art. Freedom of expression has always been and will remain a paramount value of the Guggenheim.”

The Animal rights group NYCLASS (New Yorkers for Clean, Livable and Safe Streets) also released a statement on the cancellation of parts of the Guggenheim’s exhibition:

“NYCLASS is thrilled that the Guggenheim Museum has decided to cancel the cruel exhibits in ‘Art and China After 1989: Theater of the World.’ The planned exhibits would have trapped live reptiles under glass so the public could watch them be killed, and would have furthered the false stigma that pit bulls are violent killers through depictions of dog fighting. The power of activism was undeniable in this victory — NYCLASS and other animal advocates protested outside the museum, placed a high volume of calls and emails to the museum, and promoted an online petition that received over half a million signatures in just a few days. We hope that other art institutions and museums take note of the fact that there is little public tolerance for art that harms animals.”

Earlier this week, a seven-minute video within the larger art exhibit “Art and China After 1989” received massive backlash before it was even shown to the U.S. public.

The piece, set for a three-month presentation at New York City’s Guggenheim Museum starting Oct. 6, is titled “Dogs That Cannot Touch Each Other.” The video installment features four sets of dogs who resemble pit bulls, strapped to treadmills and exhaustively charging at each other. The clip, first shown in Beijing in 2003, was created by controversial husband-and-wife artists Sun Yuan and Peng Yu.

New York’s PIX 11 News reports that the dog video, which is part of 150 different art pieces, is generating so much controversy that many animal activist groups, and even some artists, are either actively protesting the exhibition or currently planning to protest it.

Sophie Gamand, a popular artist and photographer who features dogs in her work, has launched the hashtags #TortureIsNotArt and #GuggenheimTortureIsNotArt on social media in criticism of the museum’s decision to show the video. She has also created a petition on Change.org.

While Gamand admits she hasn’t viewed the video yet herself, she takes issue with the New York Times’ description of it as frustrated dogs tethered to the treadmills, getting “wearier and wearier, their muscles more and more prominent, and their mouths increasingly salivate.”

Gamand tells PIX 11 News, “Art, you know, has the power to provoke and challenge and push boundaries, and that’s amazing and we need to protect that … but we also need to hold ourselves and our institutions accountable for the work that’s being disseminated and the message that’s being put out there.”

The ASPCA agrees. In a statement to PIX 11 News, the animal welfare organization’s president said, “ opposes the use of animals in art if such practices produce pain, injury or distress to the animals … The video perpetuates the false stereotype that pit bulls are only purposeful as vicious dog fighting instruments, not as what they are at their core: affectionate and loyal animals who crave our attention and deserve safe and loving homes.”

The Guggenheim, meanwhile, released a statement on Sept. 21 defending its decision to host the artwork. In part, the release says, “Contrary to some reports, no fighting occurred in the original performance and the presentation at the Guggenheim is in video format only; it is not a live event … Reflecting the artistic and political context of its time and place, ‘Dogs That Cannot Touch Each Other’ is an intentionally challenging and provocative artwork that seeks to examine and critique systems of power and control … We recognize that the work may be upsetting. The curators of the exhibition hope that viewers will consider why the artists produced it and what they may be saying about the social conditions of globalization and the complex nature of the world we share.”

In addition to the dog video, the Huffington Post reports that another exhibit within “Art and China After 1989” called “Theater of the World” by Huang Yong Ping that was under fire for its use of “hundreds of live reptiles and insects devour each other over the course of the show.”

Additionally, a video of mating pigs covered in ink faced backlash as well.

Tragedy Looms For Taylor Kitsch and Michael Shannon in Waco Teaser Trailer

Tragedy Looms For Taylor Kitsch and Michael Shannon in Waco Teaser Trailer

by Kara Warner @ PEOPLE.com

Danger and imminent devastation are omnipresent in the first teaser trailer for Paramount Network’s Waco miniseries, released exclusively to PEOPLE.

Taylor Kitsch stars as — and looks eerily similar to — cult leader David Koresh, alongside Michael Shannon as lead FBI negotiator Gary Noesner, in the six-part limited series, which follows the 51-day standoff between the fanatical leader, his followers the Branch Davidians and the FBI and ATF.

The events ended in tragedy and the death of 75 Davidians, including Koresh and 25 children, on April 19, 1993.

“You’ve looked to me to be your leader, to guide you on this journey. But I’m no leader, I’m a follower, just like you,” Kitsch-as-Koresh says over the intense and cinematic teaser, which features quick glimpses of the action set to unfold, along with its major players. “God has instructed me to stay here and wait for his sign. This is our time to prove through suffering that we are worthy of the miracle that’s to come. The kingdom of heaven is coming, I promise you.”

Waco will explore the untold story and true life details from multiple perspectives leading up to and during the siege. Kitsch, who did extensive research for the role, tells PEOPLE that he was unaware of most of the details about the 1993 tragedy and hopes that people learn more about what really happened from all sides.

“I learned a lot about myself as well through learning both sides and formulating an educated opinion on it,” he says. “I was like 99-plus percent of the people who are going to start watching this , in the sense of we only knew or know what we were told and what they want you to know. The deeper I got into this, the more it unfolded of what exactly happened from the civil rights to the $50 warrant that they had, to the lack of jurisdiction – there are literally jaw-dropping things that happened that the FBI and ATF did during that 51-day siege, it’s genuinely hard to believe that this happened only 25 years ago.”

The Friday Night Lights star’s prep included reading (and re-reading) survivor David Thibodeau’s book, as well as a 30-pound weight loss.

“It was four-plus months of prep for me,” Kistch says. “From losing just around 30 pounds, to listening to hundreds of hours of phone calls of the tapes with Gary Noesner and the FBI and the ATF to Child Protective Services, to reading David Thibodeau’s book a few times.”

Kitsch, 36, says he was able to lose weight gradually with proper diet, nutrition and exercise.

 

“I’m educated in nutrition and training, so the beauty of it is that I had four months to do it,” he explains. “So on Jan. 2, 2017, I started dieting. I didn’t have a lot to lose, but you have four months to lose 6 to 7 pounds a month. It wasn’t as difficult as it had been in the past, when you didn’t have the right amount of time – you can hurt your body if you lose that much weight that quick.”

The actor also learned to sing and play the guitar.

“I loved it,” he says of seeing himself in full costume as David Koresh the first time. “The wardrobe was huge, losing the weight changes your walk, your style, and I think listening to Dave for so many hours – I’d run while listening to these phone conversations and stuff, it’s a different cadence, there’s a higher pitch that he had and not that you want to emulate or copy it, you always want to make it your own.”

WATCH: Friday Night Lights Cast Reunites in Austin

Waco also stars John Leguizamo, Paul Sparks, Rory Culkin, Melissa Benoist, Andrea Riseborough and Julia Garner. 

The miniseries, produced by Weinstein Television, will premiere on the Paramount Network in January 2018.


The StoryTime Rocking Chair was designed by a dad of three who didn't have a big enough lap for all his kids!

Hal Taylor is a craftsman, a father of three, and probably a genius. He was experienced in the art of handcrafting beautiful rocking chairs, and when his brood went from two to three children, he had an epiphany.

6 sneaky food additives: Where they like to hide & why you should avoid them at all costs

by l.catherine.winter@gmail.com (Catherine Winter) @ Inhabitots

Caramel Coloring That sounds rather innocuous, doesn't it? I mean, all you really need to do to make homemade caramel is to reduce sugar to a syrup, right? You wouldn't want to have too much of that, but aside from elevated blood sugar, it's not all that harmful. That said, "caramel coloring" is a totally different beastie all together: when it's mixed with ammonia, it creates 2-methylimidazole and 4-methylimidazole, which are rather potent carcinogens.

Girl Scout Cookie Baking Mixes to Hit Stores Nationwide

Girl Scout Cookie Baking Mixes to Hit Stores Nationwide

by mariayagoda @ PEOPLE.com

Samoas in cupcake form was a thing we never knew we needed, but now it’s the only thing we can think about.

Pillsbury just unveiled Girl Scout Cookie baking mixes, which are available in Thin Mints and Caramel & Coconut – a.k.a. Samoas – flavors. The four new mixes are for baking cupcakes, brownies and blondies — unfortunately, you won’t be able to make actual Girl Scout Cookies, because that would put a lot of 7-year-olds out of business.

RELATED: Leonardo DiCaprio Eating Girl Scout Cookies at the Oscars Is the Internet’s Best New Meme

“Families can try out their favorite cookie flavors in the form of brownies, cupcakes, and blondies, while they wait for the real thing once a year during Girl Scout Cookie season,” said Girl Scouts of the USA chief revenue officer Barry Horowitz in a statement.

GSC loyalists are, to put it mildly, freaking out.

The mixes, now available nationwide, retail for $3.29 each — almost $2 less than what you’d pay for a box of cookies.

Ric Flair on Why He’s Not Proud to Admit He Slept with 10,000 Women: ‘I Don’t Want My Grandkids to Know’

Ric Flair on Why He’s Not Proud to Admit He Slept with 10,000 Women: ‘I Don’t Want My Grandkids to Know’

by Elissa Rosen @ PEOPLE.com

Ric Flair certainly got around the ring in his prime, but the legendary wrestler now says he doesn’t necessarily look back on his exploits with pride.

The 68-year-old, who is fighting for his life after years of alcohol abuse, says he cringes to think that his grandchildren will know that he slept with roughly 10,000 women over the years — an admission he initially made to ESPN’s 30 for 30 in a special to air in November.

What I said was the truth, but I feel bad now that I said some of it. Ten thousand women,” says Flair, who opens up in this week’s issue and to PEOPLETV about his iconic wrestling career and current health struggles.

“I wish I hadn’t said that because of my grandkids,” he admits.

Although Flair still admits that “I love the ladies,”  he is finally a one-woman guy: “I only love one now. I have never done anything since I met Wendy.”

Ric Flair and Wendy Barlow

Flair credits fiancée and longtime companion Wendy Barlow for helping him change his hard-living ways, and she has been by his side since he was rushed to an Atlanta-area hospital on Aug. 11 and spent time in a medically-induced coma after being told he was on the verge of congestive heart failure.

But to many, his “stylin and profilin’ ” ways will always be a part of Ric Flair.

“I was bling before bling was bling,” says the wrestler widely known as “Nature Boy,” while flashing his two gold rings, a Rolex watch and gold necklaces around his neck.

“It’s going to be a hard sell overnight to say that ‘Hey, Ric Flair  has changed,” he says. “It’s going to take time, it’s going to take proof.”

But after reconnecting with Barlow, Flair insists his playboy ways have subsided.

“But it’s still hard for me not to be me,” he says. ” But I’m really focused on getting well and just enjoying my life with Wendy.”

Why Raw Earth Hampers & Raw Earth Store?

by @ Raw Earth Store: Latest News

I'm quite nervous about posting this blog. Not because of the content but because I'm worried about how my writing skills are perceived. This is my first blog ever posted so I hope I can keep you interested! I will be introducing myself to you and I will explain how my two businesses started.

About Me (aka. Elizabeth)

I grew up in Middlemount, a small mining town in central Queensland. My dad kept a large vegetable patch and chickens throughout my younger years. I think this started my passion in all things organic, sustainable and ethical.

Did I mention my home town was small? It had approximately 2500 permanent residence. Growing up in a small town had its benefits but for me I wanted something more. My intentions were to leave once I completed year 12. 

In November 2001, two weeks after finishing Year 12 I joined the Australian Army at the age of 17. I stuck to my word much to the disappointment of my parents. I was nervous and slightly apprehensive, but mostly excited about my new life and the challenges to come. I have loved my time within ADF. I have travelled within Australia and overseas. One of the best attributes of a military life would have to the bond you create with people whilst serving. It is unbelievable. I have met amazing people that I know we will be friends for many more years to come.

During my time serving our beautiful country I met my husband Matt and in 2006 we married in Newcastle NSW. We lived in numerous towns & cities (Melbourne, Townsville, Sydney) throughout Australia before leaving the Army and settling in the Illawarra (South Sydney). We have one active but beautiful son Jaxon and a small farm (two dogs, two cats and a goldfish named Nemo). We have now brought our dream house in the Illawarra and would love to renovate using only reclaimed and recycled materials. In my downtime you can find me at the gym or outside running. Maybe you will find me with my family on one of the many beautiful beaches of Wollongong. But majority of the time you can find me at home enjoying a wonderful glass of organic red wine watching my favourite tv series' and movies.

Why Raw Earth Hampers?

Whilst deployed overseas, I was looking for a house warming gift for friends who moved from Sydney to Perth. The gift had to be sustainable and organic to suit my friends love for healthy lifestyle. We both share the same likes for all things ethical and sustainable. During the search there was nothing available that fitted my criteria so I created an organic food hamper to be delivered. Boom! The idea for Raw Earth Hampers began.  I started to research the market during my spare time of fulltime employment and family life.  Raw Earth Hampers was finally launched in Dec 2014 after 2 years of research and creating.

Why Raw Earth Store?

Since I opened Raw Earth Hampers in Dec 2014, I was contacted by friends, family members and even strangers if they could purchase my hamper products individually. My brain began to tick, so I decided to open another online business - Raw Earth Store, was opened in Jul 16. Our store allows you to purchase our wonderful organic, sustainable and ethical products in one online market store with easy and secure payment.


My future goals.

Raw Earth Store and Raw Earth Hampers were created so that I could walk away from my Army career in pursuit of a more fulfilling life with my passion of Ethical and Sustainable living. My main goals are to spend more time with my family and enjoy every moment of the two businesses I built from scratch (Raw Earth Store and Raw Earth Hampers). I intend to provide you with organic, sustainable and ethical products for your Life, Home and Family.

When you order a Raw Earth Shop you should expect:

  • The highest quality in Sustainable, Organic and Ethical products;
  • Luxury and Choice;
  • Confidence that you are making a difference to the quality of our planet Earth;
  • A service with a special personal touch;
  • A selection of products that support Australian business;
  • Indirectly supporting Australian Charities(read more);
  • A Reusable and Biodegradable packaging; and
  • A special gift wrapping service (if required).

I hope you enjoy your shopping experience at Raw Earth Store & Raw Earth Hampers because I’m loving everyday that I provide you with quality products that my team and I find.

Groom Rescues Boy from Drowning During His Wedding Photo Shoot — and the Photographer Captured Everything!

Groom Rescues Boy from Drowning During His Wedding Photo Shoot — and the Photographer Captured Everything!

by Caitlin Keating @ PEOPLE.com

A newlywed couple’s wedding photo shoot turned into a life-saving situation when the groom noticed a little boy in danger.

Clayton and Brittany Cook were taking wedding photos in a park near Kitchener, Ontario, on Sept. 22, as a group of young children excitedly watched. As Brittany posed for a picture, Clayton kept a close eye on the three kids who had been following them around and cheering them on.

“We were walking around getting our pictures taken and I had stopped to get pictures just of me taken,” Brittany told the BBC. “Clayton was waiting by the pond, waiting for his turn.”

Clayton said: “I walked over and they were looking down in the water. That’s when I saw the boy in the water struggling to keep his head up. He was swaying his arms quite a bit. That’s when I was able to jump down and was just able to reach his hand. I yelled at him, ‘grab my hand, grab my hand.’ ”

Clayton, in his wedding suit, didn’t hesitate to jump in and rescue the boy.

“He was in a lot of shock,” said Clayton. “I think he was fighting for longer than I even thought.”

Brittany says at first she thought her new husband had jumped into the water as a joke, but when she and the photographer realized what was happening, the photo shoot quickly turned to Clayton and the children.

“It’s a happy story and that’s why I like promoting it,” he said. “There is a lot going on these days and and it’s good story and everyone ended up safe and that’s what’s important.”
