This Is What Happens When A Kid Leaves Traditional Education Logan Laplante is a 13 year-old boy who was taken out of the education system to be home schooled instead. Not only was he home schooled, but Logan had the ability to tailor his education to his interests and also his style of learning, something traditional education does not offer. As Logan has mentioned, when he grows up he wants to be happy and healthy. At a TEDx talk in 2013, he discussed how hacking his education is helping him achieve that goal. New Superhero T-Shirts Latest in a Long Line of Sexist Licensed Products from DC AND Marvel I’m not entirely sure who is making the decisions when it comes to licensing at DC Entertainment, but recently two somewhat controversial shirts have appeared at retail outlets, and it’s safe to say most people aren’t very happy with them. The first shirt was revealed on the DC Women Kicking Ass page, which features an image of Superman and his now-girlfriend Wonder Woman locked in a mid-air kiss from the cover of Justice League #12, with art by Jim Lee. It’s already an older image, so why all the hubbub now? Well, you can thank a couple of modifications made to the original image just for this t- shirt that take the whole thing to a new, sexist level. Now there’s a caption above the image that says “SCORE!” and another that says “Superman Does It Again!”

9 Ways to Transform a Tie into a Stunning Knot! 9 Ways to Transform a Tie into a Stunning Knot! Dip 9 Ways to Transform a Tie into a Stunning Knot! Wonder Woman and Superman get new costumes in the comics This year, both major comic houses summer events are going to reboot their continuities. Marvel is going all in and throwing out their “616” universe and years of continuity in an event called Secret Wars and DC is doing a minor reboot in an event called Convergence. Where as Secret Wars is ending a large swath of Marvel continuity, DC’s mini reboot is notable for ending the so called “New 52,” their experiment in a complete reboot of their line undertaken in 2011. Not all of the new comics soared, some flat out face-planted, but some of the New 52 eventually found its footing and prospered for a few years (for my – and a lot of readers’ money – it’s Scott Snyder’s work with Batman). Convergence will hit this April and by the time June rolls around, the New 52 era at DC will be over.

7 Reasons Why You Should Travel Alone At Least Once In Your Life 1. You will meet amazing people. While traveling with friends or a significant other can be a lot of fun, traveling solo for a certain amount of time can prove to be one of the most rewarding things you’ll ever do because of the great people you’ll meet. When we travel with friends or a partner, we tend to stick to that little group of familiar faces and even though you’ll meet new people, the dynamics and interactions won’t be as deep and fulfilling. While you’re on your own on the road, you’re much more eager to meet travel buddies, team up with other travelers and generally reach out more in order to socialize. 2.

Yvonne Brill and the Beef-Stroganoff Illusion The most grating phrase in the opening paragraph of the Times’s obituary of Yvonne Brill, a rocket scientist whose inventions satellites still depend on, is not the one the newspaper changed after a burst of outrage—the one about beef Stroganoff. The Stroganoff, if anything, is a clue, one ignored in the obituary, whose greater flaws, like Brill’s achievements, are hidden in plain sight. Here is how it originally began: She made a mean beef stroganoff, followed her husband from job to job and took eight years off from work to raise three children. “The world’s best mom,” her son Matthew said.

A Giant Basket That Uses Condensation to Gather Drinking Water Designer Arturo Vittori believes the solution to the Ethiopian water shortage lies not in high technology, but in sculptures that look like giant-sized objects from the pages of a Pier 1 catalog. Architecture and Vision His stunning water towers stand nearly 30 feet tall and can collect over 25 gallons of potable water per day by harvesting atmospheric water vapor. Instead of looking to Western technology for a solution, Vittori was inspired by the Warka tree, a giant, gravity-defying domed tree native to Ethiopia that sprouts figs and is used as a community gathering space.

45 ways to avoid using the word 'very' Three Telling Quotes About 'Very' Substitute ‘damn’ every time you’re inclined to write ‘very;’ your editor will delete it and the writing will be just as it should be. ~Mark Twain'Very' is the most useless word in the English language and can always come out.

Brenda Milner: A scientific pioneer and a reluctant role model In the early 1950s, Wilder Penfield, one of the world’s leading neurosurgeons at the time, performed what should have been a straightforward elective surgery. The patient, an engineer who headed his department, had come to the Montreal Neurological Institute and Hospital, affiliated with McGill University, with epileptic seizures. The results of the surgery were catastrophic. “He couldn’t remember anything that happened. He couldn’t go out for dinner and follow a conversation,” recalls the neuropsychologist Brenda Milner. Looking At Tears Under A Microscope Reveals A Shocking Fact. Share on Facebook One day Rose-Lynn Fisher wondered if her tears of grief would look different compared to her tears of joy, so she began to explore them up close under a microscope. She studied 100 different tears and found that basal tears (the ones that our body produces to lubricate our eyes) are drastically different from the tears that happen when we are chopping onions.
