I forgot my phone This EFL lesson is designed around a beautiful short film by Miles Crawford titled I lost my phone and the theme of mobile phones. Students listen to a film and speculate about what is happening, watch the film to check their answers and talk about mobile phone use. Language level: Intermediate (B1) – Upper Intermediate (B2) How Facebook’s newest teen engineer supported his family with apps until cashing in There’s nothing that highlights the fact that Silicon Valley is the new Wall Street, gold rush, colonial settlement — insert your American Dream rags-to-riches historical moniker here — quite like the story of 18-year-old Miami resident Michael Sayman. This week, Facebook hired Sayman as one of its youngest full-time engineers in history. He wouldn’t tell me his salary, but admitted his friends are already pressuring him to “buy a Tesla,” which he won’t do because he’d “rather save the money.” Before you go throw up at the idea of a teenager buying himself a Tesla off tech riches, there’s few people who deserve that luxury quite as much as this kid.

Michelle Jenneke 'Creeper' Is Everyone On The Internet Right Now While the innocence of 19-year-old Australian hurdler Michelle Jenneke's warm-up routine is debatable, there's no two ways about the slow-motion re-cut of it that went viral last week. Yes, her milkshake brought all the boys to the Web. And now that collective leer has its own avatar: the Creeper. Digitom Productions posted a spoof in which a lad (that's Canadian for "bro," right?) gawks and gesticulates while Jenneke gyrates on the starting block.

At twelve, I distinctly remember listening to Britney Spears’ “Ooops I did it Again,” consuming Fruit by the Foot, surviving Y2K, and wearing checkered school jumpers that came down to my knees. It was that magical time right before pimples started growing uncontrollably and watching Saturday morning cartoons was still acceptable. Oh how much has changed since those simple times. Reading my letter evoked a lot of emotions in the span of two minutes. It was hilarious that I questioned my own ability to achieve higher education, or better yet, to even have higher education as my main concern at the age of twelve.

If I manage to live the way I intend to, then my job will only ever be a means to an end to achieve things such as this video, thus perhaps a job is the most important thing, but only if you don't let it rule your life and use it as a tool for a purpose (: by tomb1324 May 5
