www.huffingtonpost.com/marion-mayer/taking-stand-against-school-dress-code_b_4610307.html?ir=Women The new principal at my school used two phrases while addressing new dress code rules to a class: "Modest is hottest" and "boys will be boys." He should have said something more along the lines of: "The school dress code was established to provide our students with a safe and orderly learning environment that is free from distractions." Let's start with the phrase "modest is hottest," shall we? Modest means having or showing a moderate estimation of one's own talents, abilities and value. If modest is hottest, then it's not modest. You are literally sending the message to young girls, who are already struggling with self-confidence, that hiding their body makes them more attractive. At what point in your career did you find it appropriate to define my "hotness"? How am I supposed to love and feel proud of my naked body and develop a sense of sexuality when exposing my body is deemed shameful and unattractive? My body is not a sinful temptation that needs to be hidden.

Gramaje de los papeles Muchas veces se encuentra con papeles de los que se interesa conocer el gramaje (grosor o cuerpo del papel). Los gramajes imprimibles van desde 60 gramos hasta 350 gramos. El Gramaje, es la masa de la unidad de superficie del papel expresada en gramos por metro cuadrado.

La sonda Rosetta sta per svegliarsi Dopo 31 mesi di silenzio la navicella dell’Esa ha ripreso le attività. Ecco in che cosa consiste la sua missione Pubblicato Si chiama così in onore della Stele di Rosetta, che permise di decifrare le testimonianze lasciate dagli antichi Egizi e al suo pari, la sonda dell’Esa Rosetta, permetterà di svelare i misteri sulla composizione delle comete e sull’origine del Sistema solare. Tecnicamente parlando, la sonda svegliandosi ha ripreso le sue attività. (Foto: Esa) Ad aprile cominceranno i test sugli strumenti a bordo della sonda e il mese successivo avranno inizio le operazioni di avvicinamento alla cometa, che dovrebbe incontrare nel mese di agosto. Dopo l’ancoraggio sulla superficie della cometa avranno luogo le operazioni di trivellazione del suolo per analizzarne la composizione grazie agli strumenti presenti a bordo, in parte italiani (in particolare il sistema di acquisizione e distribuzione dei campioni SD2 e il sistema di pannelli solari Solar Array).

10 things France does better than anywhere else The vast Château de Chambord, one of France's great museums, and also apparently the perfect place to shoot a Brazilian telenovela, as here. No one's arguing against the existence of great cheeses around the world -- but no French citizen needs to go much further than the corner shop to find one. Mimolette (pictured) is just one of its edible works of art. Insouciance, that accent, joie de vivre -- it's an irresistible package. France's style of light-touch sophistication and luxury -- whether at spas or in fancy cafés -- has been copied worldwide. The first French rule of the road: I'm going that way, and you can't stop me. While in many other countries they've been sacrificed to the chains, France has hung on to its quirky, little boutiques. The French have mastered the art of being impeccably polite and startlingly dismissive at the same time. The French weren't joking when they called their high-speed rail network train à grande vitesse -- "very fast train." 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9.

Are You a Super-Tech Adopter? Or a Tech-Averse Older? If you have Wi-Fi, a laptop and a DVD player in your home, but no smartphone, then you might be considered a "mature technophile." To coincide with the International Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas this week, Gallup released a new analysis lumping American adults into four types of gadget owners: super tech adopters, smartphone reliants, mature technopiles and tech-averse olders. At one extreme, super tech adopters, who apparently make up 31 percent of the U.S. population, are relatively young, well off, educated and the most likely to own a wide array of electronics. [9 Odd Ways Your Tech Devices May Injure You] While 62 percent of Americans overall own a smartphone, 100 percent of super tech adopters have one. Virtually all super tech adopters (99 percent) also have wireless Internet at home, 95 percent have a laptop, 78 percent own a tablet and 68 percent subscribe to a streaming service like Netflix, Gallup found.

open day20140127_114950 Why Coming Home Is Hard Coming home after months or even years away is hard because the people you are coming home to only know — and thus expect — the you that left. This is true for the college kid who is still teased by his family about his sloppiness, his pizza-only diet, or his C’s-will-do work ethic, despite the fact that he actually worked fairly hard to get his act together while living on his own. This is true of the 20-something who is still referred to by her mother as a Prima Donna, regardless of the fact that she just spent 18 months living out of a backpack. This is true of anyone who has ever come home to find that the people there no longer see them as they see themselves. There is no one to blame here but the game-changers that are expectation and time. We can’t help that we left as the people we left as, or that the people we said goodbye to screenshotted us in their minds, remembering our carefree manner, our insecure smile or our constant refusal to do the dishes.
