Yahoo TV Presents: Worst ‘Jeopardy’ Answers
Jeopardy has always been known as a game that combines intelligence, pop-culture knowledge, and quick thinking. Sometimes these three things, combined with the pressure of being on national television, can lead to answers that make us all collectively cringe. Over the years Alex Trebek has heard his fair share of laughable responses, but these answers take the cake.

In this stressful world, we need pauses to reconnect our body with Nature and spiritual life. Yoga is a powerful and inspiring way to keep a peaceful mind in a healthy body. If you think fitness lack of spirituality and harmony with the world, you should try yoga. It’s elegant, relaxing and it helps you open to others.

Coping While Black: A Season Of Traumatic News Takes A Psychological Toll
Research on the psychological effects of racism, especially on people of color, is still in the early stages. But psychologists warn that events like the Charleston shooting can cause serious stress.

“We hear in the news about African-Americans being shot in a church, and this brings up all sorts of other things and experiences,” says Monnica Williams, director of the Center for Mental Health Disparities at the University of Louisville. “Maybe that specific thing has never happened to us. But maybe we’ve had uncle or aunts who have experienced things like this, or we know people in our community [who have], and their stories have been passed down. So we have this whole cultural knowledge of these sorts of events happening, which then sort of primes us for this type of traumatization.”

My favorite festival

  In this unit i leaned some difference culture in Vancouver. Actually my favorite festival is Canada Day festival. From my friends i got know Canada day is July first and also have some firework and music. In addition, from class Flow i learned a lot of knowledge and culture about Canada. so I  think this celebrate is a best way to know Canada’s culture and Canadian. Although Canada’s culture is difference to China culture, it still have a little bit similar.

The Twelve

I’ve been saying for the past few months that I want to be a better person overall this time next year. A new book that I found last month in FedEx is about a woman who spent a year focusing on 12 attributes in an attempt to chase happiness. How ironic. I wouldn’t say my aim is happiness, but I feel that as human beings the best gift is to be self-aware. What more than that to improve your own flaws? Originated by Benjamin Franklin, revamped by Gretchen Rubin. I’ll spend a month focusing on each of these categories, in no particular order. Progression should continue beyond those 30 days however.

Here are my 12 categories:

Health
Patience
Family
Self-love
Travel/Culture
Parenting
Knowledge

Have u ever heard about one of this Islamic Hero ?
His name is Sultan Mehmed Fatih, He conquer the contanstinople when he was very young, at the ages of 21. Sultan Mehmed Fatih conquered the Istanbul from Byzantines in 1453 masyaAllah <3

The conquest of Constantinople was one of the major goals of Islam in Islamic tradition. Reference is made to the prospective conquest of Constantinople in a hadith, attributed to a saying of Muhammad.


“ Verily you shall conquer Constantinople. What a wonderful leader will he be, and what a wonderful army will that army be! ”

Its signs of the victory of Islam, “.. The prophet Muhammad was asked: ‘what city will be conquered first, Constantinople or Romiyya?’ He answered:  The city of heracles will be conquered first - that is, Constantinople.. Romiyya is the city called today 'Rome,’ the capital of Italy. The city of Heracles later [later to become Constantinople ] was conquered by the young 23-years old Ottoman Muhammad bin Morad, known in History as Muhammad the conqueror, in 1453.The other city , is Romiyya, remains, and we hope and believe (that it too ll be conquered) insyaAllah <3

I think the Lightbright/Sparkstalker was just Scott writing in a pairing she likes (much like she's writing in KO/BD) and Ironhide/Chromia is just calling back to the fact they were a G1 ship? I mean you're right it's a lot of hetero but I think Ms. Scott's just indulging a little. Like how JRo goes overboard with retro music on the LL or Swerve having all this obscure human pop culture knowledge.

Lightbright and Sparkstalker came out of nowhere. They have never met before. Adding out-of-nowhere hetships is gonna rub me the wrong way. Okay, nice that she likes it but she should, as a writer, think about the messages she’s sending by overindulging in hetero stuff when the franchise has been male-dominated and IDW is the only continuity where it’s been properly brought under inspection. 

Her indulging a little is harming the comic. It’s harming her writing. This is an issue that 1. clashes with in-universe estabilished stuff 2. is really bad for her “I’ll add LGBT representation” promises earlier on. 

Swerve getting into human stuff and lots of British stuff being in MTMTE isn’t really going to harm minorities, or make them feel left out or betrayed. Going back into G1 days with “whoops there’s only five girls and 500 guys and no one is gay” is pretty ridiculous. 

IDW is the one good continuity where “no homo” rule isn’t in action. If she wants to keep up the heteronormativity and what not, she should write Aligned comics with their 1:12 females-to-males ratio. 

Day 26

Today was a fantastic day for interns/volunteers to discuss at Dunamis. We talked about a lot of things this morning, and I feel like we accomplished a lot. We talked about writing a manual for future interns, volunteers, and teachers in order to give people more information before they get here. Knowledge of culture is so important in work like this, and we thought that a manual could really help future volunteers. We’re also working with girls who have undergone severe trauma, and I think the majority of people don’t know what to do with that. I know that I wasn’t entirely certain how I should approach this sort of work. I’m excited that I’ve been able to work with such a great team during my time here. I’m going to miss them!

Tonight Christine and I had a truly unique experience watching some contemporary dance. There’s a lot going on in the art scene in Quito, believe it or not, so despite the oddity of what we were watching, we were thoroughly entertained! Then we stopped at Cafe Jaru for some delicious treats! I had a banana frappe and an amazing muffin! Such a great night!

Reda Report adopted: A turning point in the copyright debate - European Bureau of Library Information and Documentation Associations (EBLIDA)

In this report, the Parliament recognises that copyright reform is urgently needed not just to improve the Digital Single Market, but also to facilitate access to knowledge and culture for all people in Europe.  

It calls on the Commission to consider a wide variety of measures to bring copyright law up to speed with changing realities and improve cross-border access to our cultural diversity, going further than the plans so far announced by the Commissioners.

What can we change in our classroom?

1.      Quality learning environment

2.      Intellectual quality

3.      Significant

I have discussed yesterday about how to have good quality learning environment. There are some certain things to look at.

1.      Have high level of engagement

2.      Have high expectation

3.      Provide students with social support

4.      Have students’ self-regulation

5.      Give students directions as needed

For intellectual quality, we have to look at Bloom’s taxonomy. We need to teach students to have high level of thinking.

Today we have discussed further about significance. Lesson should be important or meaningful. Students need to feel that the lesson they have learned is meaningful and relevant to them. Things to be considered about are:

1.      Background knowledge

2.      Cultural knowledge

3.      Knowledge integration

4.      Inclusivity

5.      Connectedness

6.      Narrative

Teachers should also motivate the students. There are 3 factors that motivate the students.

1.      Autonomy (Teachers need to give students choices.)

2.      Mastery (Students are getting better at something that is important to them.)

3.      Purpose (Students need to know the reasons behind why they are doing the work.)

All students are different in term of intelligence which is called “multiple intelligences.” There are 8 intelligences. They are linguistic intelligence, logical-mathematical intelligence, musical intelligence, bodily-kinesthetic intelligence, spatial-visual intelligence, interpersonal intelligence, and intrapersonal intelligence.

Vygotsky said students can learn and perform better when they do the work in group.

Goes back in time but has no real useful knowledge of the future so uses vast pop culture knowledge to try and make books and movies that catch fads right when they are big but cant get too big or else you change the timeline and mess up what little future knowledge you had.

Hello! I'm interested with Paige's knowledge about culture and fashion. Could you recommend me some books or movies about culture ans fashion? Thanks, have a nice day!

I don’t know specifically what your interested like which era or style because culture and fashion are broad terms but if your looking for things that Paige would probably be into check out ‘How to be Parisian Wherever You Are’ by Caroline de Maigret (which i feel like everyone i follow on Instagram has) and ‘Vanity Fair 100 Years: From the Jazz Age to Our Age’ which “showcases a century of personality and power, art and commerce, crisis and culture.” It’s super educational if your interested in culture. I skimmed through it in the past and i’m meaning to get it myself, it’s kind of pricey though. 

Films: Documentary wise “In Vogue: The Editors Eye” is great. You can find it online. It’s takes you through the archive of Vogue and the creative directors involved from conception till now. It has interviews with the Creative Directors, designers and models who recall the influences of the time with cool little anecdotes. 

In this article there is a list of stylish films which so well reflect the styles of their time. They won’t educate like a documentary but their reference of the times will plus they’re all well received and aesthetically pleasing films. Paige has made reference to Annie Hall before which is on that list.
