Many teachers and parents were hoping for a deal by the weekend’s end and a return to classrooms Tuesday, as district and union negotiators underwent a marathon of closed-door bargaining sessions at L.A. City Hall. But even as teachers stayed away from ...

Why I Don't Love Kitten Heels

Just when I thought I had found my purrfect match... Urban Outfitters So I had a problem. About a year ago, I discovered my absolute adoration of heels of all kinds. You could catch me falling for a stiletto, catching feelings for a pump, or lusting over a new pair of block heels. However, I noticed that I had one issue with all of this that I had left out of the equation -- heels can be painful and they're hard to walk in. These two things combined left me searching for a new solution, one wh...

How Zora Neale Hurston & Eleanor Roosevelt Helped Create the First Realistic African American Baby Doll (1951)

In the 1930s and 40s, child psychologists Kenneth and Mamie Clark found that very young black children in the U.S. usually chose dolls with lighter skin colors when given a choice. The findings suggested that the children had internalized dominant prejudices against them “by the time they reached nursery school,” notes the National Museum of Play. “These studies played an important role in the NAACP’s battle in the 1950s to end segregation in public schools.” What often goes unremarked in accou...

Librarian Honors a Dying Tree by Turning It Into a Little Free Library

And then she said to Annika, "Why don't you feel in that old tree stump? One practically always finds things in old tree stumps."  - Pippi Longstocking, Astrid Lindgren  Remember that other classic of children's literature, wherein a boy runs from the city to a secluded mountain, taking up residence in an old tree he hollows into a cozy shelter?

Can You Be Successful Without College?

What does your college degree say about you? On the surface level, it tells others where we went to school, what we studied, and perhaps how long we spent in education. Beyond that though, some graduates would agree that it has very little bearing on them as individuals. Some would even go so far as to consider it the most expensive piece of paper they own or even a pricey mark of conformity. In reality, our college degree does not define our worth, skills or even our success in our careers. Wit...
