How One Conservative Group Is Trying To Inspire Millennial Women
They sell "Fox News & Chill" socks.

Future Female Leaders is a female conservative collegiate organization that promotes empowering young women in the political field- more importantly, in the platform of the Republican Party. This social movement demonstrates political learning through association functions such as, the Conservation Political Action Conference and by releasing political statements on social media. FFL focuses on representing conservative policies and supporting women’s interests within the Republican Party for future endeavors.


“We all identify as conservatives but we all differ on where we are on certain issues, and what’s great is that we all support each other and we are united on the common conservative principles, but we also differ a lot on policy issues.”

-Amanda Owens, Founder of Future Female Leaders

No approval yet for extended school day
NASHUA – School officials, aiming to make up class time lost to recent snow days, met Wednesday to consider setting up longer school days between March 6 and the final day in June. Originally, the expanded day proposal added 15 minutes to the morning and 10 to the afternoon, but Board of Education members voted to explore adding more time to the afternoon versus the morning. There has been no change to the school day yet, as discussion now heads to the teachers union. “The school board did not approve a change to the 2016-2017 school year,” Adam Marcoux, president of the Nashua Teachers’ Union, said in a statement on social media after the board’s decision. “All school start and end times will remain the same at this time. The superintendent was instructed to meet with the union to look at adding only time to the end of the day.” The original plan, presented during a special meeting on Wednesday evening, was met with resistance from students who described potential complications with transportation, sports and sleep schedules. “This is more of a family issue for me, and I came here on behalf of my mom,” said Haley McQuinn, a senior at Nashua High School North. McQuinn said she gets her little brothers ready for school while her mother works, and the schedule is very precise. “If this change were to happen, it doesn’t really affect me, but it affects the rest of my family,” she said. McQuinn said her 5-year-old brother would end up alone at the house in the morning if she had to leave any earlier. “I speak for the majority of the students,” said Stephen Loranger, a student at Nashua North. “We do not agree with these changes; we would rather go to school those extra few days.” In a Feb. 16 memo to the Board of Education, Superintendent Connie Brown described the need for more class time.

How has Graffiti influenced video games?

Graffiti is typically the act of writing or spray painting on walls and surfaces that are usually public property. The content can range from scribbled names to large, intricate pieces of work that can take a substantial amount of time to complete. Graffiti became largely popular within the formation of Hip Hop culture in the 1970s and is still expanding and changing in the present day.

What some businesses need to realize about social media

In this article the writer discusses how social media can be a real waste of time. I agree it can be but in most circumstances it is very helpful. She is mainly arguing for smaller businesses and other companies that may not receive much attention on social media. One of her main points is that there are many other ways to market your company rather than using online sites such as Twitter and Facebook. And I completely agree with her on that point but what I don’t completely agree with is her statement about social media. I believe that basically any company can gain customers through a social media-based marketing style. I do however think that these accounts must be managed in the right way as well as used in the right away. The one part of the social media statement that she made that I do agree with is the fact that it can’t be a waste of time if you were doing it wrong. Some companies think they know what they are doing but when it comes down to it it is completely wrong. So the main thing I think most people would get out of this article is that social media is it for everybody but can help if you know what you were doing.

I can’t believe USAG went to SOCIAL MEDIA with those statements, apparently no one in this entire organization knows how to do their job…I mean they couldn’t seriously have thought this would bring them anything but backlash..? honestly I’m so confused as to how they’re handling this

Facebook’s Zuckerberg, Bucking Tide, Takes Public Stand Against Isolationism

In an update to the social network’s mission statement, the C.E.O. said that to achieve progress, people needed to come together “as a global community.”

me: things like g*lent*nes day are important because historically, in western society, it has been believed that women are incapable of bonding with one another the way men do; this belief is completely baseless & rooted in misogyny, and as a result the celebration of female friendships is a powerful social statement 

me 2 me: g*lent*nes day posts are annoying at best and homophobic at worst

Reminder that you can like/dislike things without having some kind of ham-fisted social reasoning behind it.

Not everything is a social statement. Subjective opinions are a thing. Unless the shit you like is directly harmful to other people, keep liking it.

‘The Rock’ joins critics of Under Armour CEO’s Trump remark

Actor Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and professional ballerina Misty Copeland have joined basketball star Stephen Curry in criticizing the CEO of sports apparel company Under Armour for praising President Donald Trump. Kevin Plank, the CEO of Baltimore-based Under Armour, called Trump “an asset to the country” in an interview with CNBC this week. The company later issued a statement saying it engages in “policy, not politics.” Under Armour sponsors Johnson, Copeland and Curry, who plays for the Golden State Warriors.

Johnson sent out a statement on social media on Thursday saying Plank’s words “were divisive and lacking in perspective.” Copeland wrote in an Instagram post she was so concerned about Plank’s comments that she spoke to him directly. None of the three has severed ties with the company.

Lady Gaga

Lady Gaga certainly is one of a kind musician. Personally, I don’t think there’s been a female musician of this time period that is as diverse in her music and actions as Lady Gaga. I remember hearing her first songs “Poker Face” and “Bad Romance” eight years ago when I was in the fifth grade. The repetitive lyrics and catchy sounds are just what a ten year old love to hear (unfortunately my mother was not much of a fan). Also during this time, in her public appearances, she wore shocking outfits covered in abstract designs. Many of the adults around me didn’t really like what Lady Gaga was doing because it was so unusual. For me, a young, impressionable preteen, I thought it was so cool that this woman was wearing whatever she wanted and didn’t even care what others thought. Sometimes her outfits would have political or social statements; others would be complete works of art. All of them would be completely unique to just Lady Gaga.

Of course, after Lady Gaga gained international fame, she went from less pop/electronic music to pop/rock music, with her second album “Born this Way”. Personally, this is my favorite album of hers including songs like “Marry the Night”, “Born this Way”, “Judas”, “Americano”, “You and I”, and “The Edge of Glory”. This was also one of the first albums that I bought myself. I also had it on my first iPod and would listen to it non-stop. (I still know all the lyrics, not to brag or anything). This album also brought amazing music videos. YouTube was still accelerating in popularity during this time, which only fueled my interest in her videos. I remember I stayed up all night watching all of her videos back-to-back for hours. I loved how she gave the songs their own background stories, through artistic beauty and mesmerizing choreography.

After a two year hiatus from the music industry, Lady Gaga came back with my favorite album of hers, “Artpop”. This is actually one of my favorite albums of all time because it came into my life during a very important time. My family was in the middle of another move from California to Texas and it was a very emotional and stressful time for my family. But on long drives from school to my house, my sisters and I would listen to the songs on this album non-stop. Our favorites were “G.U.Y.”, “Venus”, “Sexxx Dreams”, “Do What U Want”, and “Gypsy”. These songs got me though some tough times and always raise my spirits. Lady Gaga is still one of my favorite musicians and has inspired me through influential times in my life.

Vogue could’ve done a much better job showing diversity in that cover photo. Diversity isn’t only about skin color (which is also lacking), it’s about body type and sexual identity as well. Isis from STRUT would have fit perfectly. I get their point but this is Vogue, they can do better than this.
