Last night’s Chinese inspire Met Gala 2015 was all about the one-upmanship of everyone’s gown. The unifying theme? Big badonks are still the focus, forget the boobs.
Monday night’s Met Gala (aka the Super Bowl of fashion) which celebrated the museum’s “China: Through the Looking Glass” exhibition, was ostensibly to celebrate the culture of the Chinese people and their impressive history.

When none of the girls in 10-year-old Mackenzie Moretter‘s class wanted to attend her party last Saturday, April 18th, about 400 kind-hearted strangers on Facebook did so. And the mayor of Shakopee, Minnesota, where Mackenzie lives, even declared April 18th ”Mackenzie Moretter Day” to celebrate the girl, who was born with a genetic disorder, Sotos syndrome, which causes developmental delays in speech and learning.
To date, Mackenzie has received an outpouring of support and birthday wishes via comments on her Facebook page, from as far away as Sri Lanka and India. Anyone wanting to support Mackenzie and help stop bullying can use the hashtag #BeKindAndCourageous. Not every child who is left out or bullied at school, though, is lucky enough to experience such an outpouring of support. And if your son or daughter is feeling social rejection as a kid or teen, it may put him or her at risk for other issues later. Continue reading
In the latest teaser for Diane Sawyer’s exclusive, two-hour interview with Bruce Jenner, he says that the highly anticipated chat is going to be “an emotional roller-coaster.”
“It’s going to be an emotional roller-coaster, but somehow I’m going to get through it,” the gender transitioning ex-Olympian says in the promo clip.
He adds: “I wanna know how this story ends, you know? How does my story end?”

If you want your children to embrace learning, make learning more fun! Kids know sitting in a chair staring at flash cards doesn’t really fit the “fun” bill, but a game that combines a little learning with a lot of fun will get their attention. Educational games for kids make learning fun, so it’s easier to pay attention to the lesson.
For even more fun, invite other children to play along.

It also helps to develop a child’s psychomotor capacity and strengthen the muscles and bones.”
