Pediatrics Group: Academic, Mental And Physical Benefits Of In-Person School Outweigh Coronavirus Risks

(CNN) — As states grapple with how to safely start the upcoming school year, the American Academy of Pediatrics is pushing for students to be physically present in classrooms rather than continue in remote learning for the sake of their well-being. The group, which represents and guides pediatricians across the country, updated its back-to-school recommendations to say evidence shows the academic, mental and physical benefits of in-person learning outweigh the risks from the coronavirus. “The AA...

Spike Lee Debuts the Short Film “3 Brothers”: A Remake of Do the Right Thing for Our Dark Times

When beloved actor Bill Nunn died in September of 2016, two months before the election, his passing felt prophetic of more bad things to come. Best known as the boombox-toting, ultimate Public Enemy fan Radio Raheem in Spike Lee’s 1989 film Do the Right Thing, Nunn’s character is murdered by a gang of cops, who put him in a chokehold and suffocate him. At the time, Raheem’s death was a fictional restatement of what had come before, as Lee explains above in the 30th anniversary commentary...

Gil Scott-Heron Spells Out Why “The Revolution Will Not Be Televised”

Consider the influence of television, even in the digital age. Consider the power that networks like Fox and CNN continue to wield over that nebulous thing called public opinion; the continued dominance of NBC and CBS. These giants don’t really inform so much as sell packaged ideological content paid for and approved by corporate sponsors. There's really no need to update poet and musician Gil Scott-Heron’s radical, 1971 classic “The Revolution Will Not Be Televised,” unless we wanted to...

Somber Warnings Temper Hopes About Fall Return To School — And Normalcy

(CNN) — School is out for an early summer for most US kids — and discouraging signs about the spread of coronavirus are starting to cloud hopes of a return to class in the fall. Despite pressure from President Donald Trump for a swift resumption of lessons, forecasts of higher than expected death tolls and a stubborn plateau of infections are already threatening the 2020-21 academic year in the worst affected regions. Since the return of kids to school will be one of the most tangible signs that...

No prom. No awards night. No graduation? Class of 2020 gets creative with celebrations

Isolated at home during the coronavirus pandemic with almost no chance for a prom or graduation ceremony, Eagle Rock High School senior Lincoln Debenham had an idea. He tweeted a message to former President Barack Obama, asking if he would record a national commencement speech to encourage the Class of 2020. A few days later, the tweet — liked 223,000 times — was picked up by ABC News and CNN and reached Obama, who reportedly was “very flattered” but made no commitment, Debenham said. “We experi...

I was calm until I read about colleges staying closed until September 2022

Each night before I go to sleep, I lay in bed torturing myself with the day’s news. I know we are not supposed to do that, but there are very few vices I can fully engage in when we have five people living in a 1000-square-foot apartment. Screen-time news right before bed is one of few vices that takes very little space and does not involve the bathroom. Wait. You’re wondering about the five people, right? I didn’t know our apartment is actually approved for only two people. I found it out wh...

Watch this! Chino Hills High students singing solo, but ‘together,’ to inspire the world

A high school choir in San Bernardino County came together to sing – without being together. They performed a capella, each from their own home and each alone. But when the voices came together in a bit of video editing magic, their rendition of “Over the Rainbow” delivered a message of hope and resilience in the time of fear. And the video of the ballad sung by a Chino Hills High School choir struck a chord across the country and world, viewed on social media by more than two million people....

Study: Teachers Who Praise See A 30% Increase In Good Behavior From Students

(CNN) — The more your child’s elementary school teacher uses praise instead of punishment, the more your child will stay focused on their schoolwork and lessons in the classroom, according to a new study published in the journal Educational Psychology. “As elementary teachers’ praise over punishment ratio increases, students’ on-task behavior increases as well,” said lead author Paul Caldarella, a professor in the Brigham Young University’s counseling, psychology and special education department...

USDA Proposes Allowing ‘More Flexibility’ In School Lunches

(CNN) — The US Department of Agriculture on Friday announced two new proposals that would give school nutrition professionals “more flexibility” in what they serve to students. The Washington Post reports the proposals would allow schools to reduce the number of vegetables and fruits required at lunch and breakfast and would let schools sell more burgers, pizza and french fries.

Student Loan Debt Is $1.6 Trillion And People Are Struggling To Pay It Down

(CNN) — The student loan burden in the US is about $1.6 trillion and rising, mostly because people have barely made a dent in paying down their loans. That’s according to a report released Thursday from credit rating agency Moody’s Investors Service. While higher college enrollment rates and rising tuition costs used to the main reason for growing student loan balances, the report states that slow loan repayments have recently become the primary driver. “Over the next few years, the combination ...

Italy to require schools to teach climate change, in world first

On Passion and Its Discontents

An Earlier Book New readers of this blog might not know that back in 2012 I published a book about career satisfaction. It was titled So Good They Can’t Ignore You. The book draws from interviews and relevant scientific research to answer a simple but important question: How do people end up passionate about what they do for a living? Early in the book I make a provocative claim: the popular advice that you should “follow your passion” is counterproductive in the sense that it will likely reduc...
