Spending too much time on social media makes me feel like my brain is turning to mush. Well that isn’t necessarily the case, but something is definitely happening to our brains.
ASAP Science gives us a low-down of what is really going on when we combine over stimulation caused by tech devices and immediate gratification through social media.… Keep Reading!!!
Elizabeth Eckford represents bravery and determination in the face of oppression. Eckford was just 15-years-old when she walked up the path to Little Rock Central High School in Little Rock, Arkansas. The school’s integration came as a result of Brown v. Board of Education of Topeka. However, it was Arkansas Governor Faubus ordered soldiers from National Guard to not allow any black students to enter the school.
The plan for that morning was to have the nine children arrive and … Keep Reading!!!

Obama wore a khaki suit the other day and (as always) Twitter went crazy:
Honestly, the first thing I thought of when I saw it:
“Dressed in Locs and khaki suits and ride is what we do
Flossin but have caution we collide with other crews.”
Quite fitting if you consider that this was a briefing on Syria, Iraq, and Ukraine.
ISIS and Putin- better watch your backs.… Keep Reading!!!
With each passing year messaging about depression and its implications make their way to news mediums and blogs, reclaiming the word “depression” from its nonchalant usage in society. At this point, it would be difficult for one to feign ignorance on the matter; the inability to relate is perhaps the only reason a person can cite for their detachment from the topic. Having a partner with depression requires making an effort to understand what it is and developing empathy as … Keep Reading!!!
I had no idea that there VMAs were still around…or MTV to be honest.
But Beyonce turns anything she touches to gold. Leave it to her to revive something slowly creeping out of pop culture. (I’m not sure if I’m referring to myself or MTV…)
Here is her much talked about VMA performance from last night. She shut the place down.
If you don’t have 16 minutes to spare, speed it up to 13:22 for the most touching part of … Keep Reading!!!
Sometimes it’s the simplest gestures which have the biggest impact on others.
Keith Kiel was shopping at a Publix supermarket on August 9th when he witnessed a beautiful and random act of kindness.
That evening, Gage Boucher, an employee at Publix encountered a elderly man on his shift who could not bend over to tie his shoes. Boucher gently asked if he could be of assistance, squatted on the floor, and carefully tied each shoe for the gentleman. The man … Keep Reading!!!
Have you ever been standing in the shower, when out of nowhere, a genius thought comes to you?
Well, there’s a Reddit thread that has been created for this phenomenon.
Shower Thoughts is a “subreddit for you to share all those thoughts, ideas, or philosophical questions that race through your head when in the shower”… And it is awesome.
Some of my recent favorites:
Meet Mo’ne Davis. She is the superstar of the Little League World Series and the first Little Leaguer (male or female!) to grace Sports Illustrated’s iconic cover.
She is also bringing to light a problem for female athletes in the US- lack of opportunities to play school-sponsored baseball competitively.
You see, young females normally have specific ‘girls’ teams’ for other sports. However, with baseball there is nothing. Not even the National Federation of State High School Associations is aware of … Keep Reading!!!
Meet Lillian Weber. She’s teaching us all that age is just a number.
The 99-year-old makes a dress a day for a little girl she has never met.
“I could probably make two a day, but I only make one.” She told WQAD. “It’s just one of those things that you just learn how to do and enjoy.”
Over the past two years Lillian has made over 850 dresses.
“I have to be busy,” she said.
On May 6th, Lillian … Keep Reading!!!
Sam built his house in a rural wooded area many years ago. When authorities were recently alerted of his home, they were legally obligated to destroy the structure.
According to the homeless advocate group Destiny’s Bridge, Sam only had one request… he asked if he could watch.
Destiny’s Bridge was also there to capture the moment on film. The moving footage has almost everyone questioning the ‘spirit of the law’ vs. ‘letter of the law’, and whether or not … Keep Reading!!!
India has made international news in the past two years due to an increase in violent sexual assaults among women. (Or perhaps the media is just finally taking notice.)
So, when a Mumbai-based photographer Raj Shetye recently released images from a photo shoot, which depicted an eerily similar scene to that of the Delhi gang rape and murder, it came as no surprise that the public reaction was mostly outrage.
Just like the atrocious 2012 crime, a young woman is … Keep Reading!!!
