Woman Uses Paramedical Tattooing To Hide Burns And Scars Basma Hameed may not look like your typical tattoo artist, but that's because her ink-driven cause is anything but ordinary.

Her profession is especially meaningful to the 17-year-old girl featured in this video, who had boiling water thrown in her face by ruthless bullies.

The 50 Greatest Movie Monologues - - Page 27983372 When I started compiling a list of my favorite monologues in movies, the list continued to expand and expand and expand to the point where it got a little ridiculous. So the first thing I tried to cut out was any monologues that were parts of voice-over work. That removed a lot of entries, but I still found myself with around 70 movies.

Parents turn Canadian students into world-class readers Canada’s elementary-school students are among the world’s stronger readers, thanks in part to the influence of Canadian parents who enjoy and encourage reading themselves, according to a new international survey. Canadian students ranked in the top dozen out of 45 countries, but can’t quite be called world-beaters: They still trail such recognized education leaders as Hong Kong, Finland and Singapore. Curiously, Canada was also edged out by the United States, even though Canadian high-school students score far higher than their American counterparts in other reading studies. Nine Canadian provinces took part in the third Progress in International Reading Literacy Study (PIRLS), which looks at reading achievement by Grade 4 students every five years.
