Twitter to ABC Family: #AliceinArabia? WHAT?

On Monday, ABC announced its new pilots will include a drama, Alice in Arabia. Behind the ludicrous title is a plotline about an American woman kidnapped by her Middle Eastern relatives.

The Goddess Project: What It's Like to Cross the Country Filming Women

In the summer of 2012, Holli Rae and Sara Landas criss-crossed the United States in an amazing painted bus. Their goal was to interview women who, as they say, "are committed to transforming themselves and the world around them"—but it's clear that they also transformed themselves and the world they encountered in their journey. The result of their trip: The Goddess Project, a beautifully shot documentary film in progress. Here's a sneak peek: ...more

Sorry, Mom: Your baby cannot learn to read

We love books in our household. Before our son was born, my husband and I read each other's books to learn more about one another. And, when our son came along, we immediately started to fill his library with books we could read aloud to him....more

Five Unbearable Internet Facts That Will Make You Headdesk for the Rest of Your Life

Guys, what are we doing? What is it in our nature that compels us to click on stupid headlines? We already know that whatever that content is, it's not "earth-shattering", it won't "blow our minds" and it probably won't even "melt our hearts".

Tools for education I think everybody should start using right now

When used irresponsibly, technology can really be a distraction for students in class. They are inseparable from their smartphones and tablets, so they don’t pay enough attention to the lessons. However, that doesn’t necessarily mean a bad thing. Educators can use the affection students have towards technology in order to advance their teaching methods and make them more interesting for today’s young people....more

Shows like Being Mary Jane, Scandal and the Real Housewives of Atlanta are destroying the image of black women

Before I state my claim, let me just qualify some things for all the followers and naysayers who are diehard fans of these shows. First, I have seen each one of these shows. Followed all of them, season after season until recently. Know the internal fabric of every storyline. Understand completely that these are, ‘in fact’, television shows, and despite the titles, are not reality. And lastly, anyone who proclaims this is merely entertainment and shouldn’t be taken seriously are themselves part of the problem that drives this impassioned blogpost....more
I agree wholeheartedly!more
