Making this chicken sandwich from scratch took six months, $1,500 Forget farm-to-table — a Minnesota-based YouTuber has pushed the concept of cooking from scratch to whole new heights. While most of us would normally run to the supermarket for ingredients, Andy George, the founder of a new video series called "How to Make Everything," took the task of making a chicken sandwich to its literal extreme. "I've been into cooking and I found myself starting to make more from-scratch meals, but they weren't really from scratch," George told

African Paper Plate Necklace This is one of our favorite African-themed projects. We love how they all turn out so differently! They are made using the outer rim of a large paper plate and they are inspired by the beaded necklaces of the Samburu Tribe. Create Your Own African Djembe Drum Like the African artisans you learned about yesterday, you can create your own Djembe (Jem-Bay) drum. This is a fun project, though it does take a bit a time. I recommend it for third graders and older. Supplies Needed: Two plastic, Styrofoam, or paper cups Retrotechtacular: Examining Music in 1950’s Russia If you had told 12-year-old me that one day I would be able to listen to pretty much any song I wanted to on demand and also pull up the lyrics as fast as I could type the artist’s name and part of the title into a text box, I would have a) really hoped you weren’t kidding and b) would have wanted to grow up even faster than I already did. The availability of music today, especially in any place with first world Internet access is really kind of astounding. While the technology to make this possible has come about only recently, the freedom of music listening has been fairly wide open in the US. The closest we’ve come to governmental censorship is the parental advisory sticker, and those are just warnings. The only thing that really stands between kids’ ears and the music they want to listen to is parental awareness and/or consent. But the draw of music tends to upstage politics.

Store - Morah Sheli Publishing Morah Sheli Publishing Restoring cultural identity for Brown students Store Our History Revealed: Africans in Early America Curriculum SET Price: $109.00 Architectures As mentioned a while back, I’ve been trying to find a way to classify the numerous ‘Design with Intent’ and architectures of control examples that have been examined on this site, and suggested by readers. Since that post, my approach has shifted slightly to look at what the intent is behind each example, and hence develop a kind of ‘method’ for suggesting ‘solutions’ to ‘problems’, based on analysing hundreds of examples. I’d hesitate to call it a suggestion algorithm quite yet, but it does, in a very very rudimentary way, borrow certain ideas from TRIZ*. Below is a tentative, v.0.1 example of the kind of thought process that a ‘designer’ might be led through by using the DwI Method. I’ve deliberately chosen an common example where the usual architectures of control-type ‘solutions’ are pretty objectionable. Other examples will follow.

Exploring Africa Diversity of Africa: Africa, the second largest continent in the world, is a very diverse continent. This diversity is articulated in its physical geography and climate; in its plurality of cultures, traditions, beliefs, values, religions, and artistic expressions; in its many modes of economic production, distribution, and consumption; in its diverse social and political structures and practices.Africa has a rich history: Africa has a dynamic history; Africa was the birthplace of human societies; it has been home to many great civilizations; its history has been shaped by contact with others through great migrations, wars, slavery, colonialism, the Cold War, and the waxing and waning of state systems.Africa Globally Connected: For millennia, Africa has interacted with the outside world. This interaction has facilitated many African contributions and exports to the world, such as agricultural products, minerals, and other material goods, as well as knowledge and cultural expressions.

My Bed My Bed is a work by the British artist Tracey Emin. First created in 1998, it was exhibited at the Tate Gallery in 1999 as one of the shortlisted works for the Turner Prize.[1] It consisted of her bed with bedroom objects in an abject state, and gained much media attention. Although it did not win the prize, its notoriety has persisted. Inspiration[edit] The idea for My Bed was inspired by a depressive phase in the artist's life when she had remained in bed for several days without eating or drinking anything but alcohol.[2] When she looked at the vile, repulsive mess that had accumulated in her room, she suddenly realised what she had created. Emin ardently defended My Bed against critics who treated it as a farce and claimed that anyone could exhibit an unmade bed.

The Woobie A "woobie" is a name for any type of character who makes you feel extremely sorry for them. Basically, the first thing you think to say when you see the woobie is: "Aw, poor baby!" Woobification of a character is a curious, audience-driven phenomenon, sometimes divorced from the character's canonical morality.
