Aside from watching our President manhandle the first lady of France while telling her "she's in good shape", we experienced two major events this week:

A one-trillion ton ice berg broke off of the Antarctic peninsula much sooner than any climate change scientist predicted AND

The permafrost at the North Pole melted flooding Norway's Doomsday seed archive. This is significant because the permafrost holds 2x the amount of carbon currently in our atmostphere. We've had three mass extinctions - one caused by an asteroid and two by the melting of the permafrost.

The young girl in this picture was pulled out of class because she violated the school dress code in Kentucky by showing her collarbones. Upworthy has more pictures of girls pulled out of class and humiliated while missing valuable class time waiting for their parents to come down to school.  From Portland to Kentucky, it's an every day occurrence.

I love this video because it renews my faith in the younger generations.  While the media is focused on gang rapes, these young women are making a difference by putting their pleasure first.  I admire their candor and their honesty.

Angelina Jolie has opened her first school for girls in Afghanistan with the proceeds from her jewelry collection "Style of Jolie".   All the profits from "Style of Jolie" will go towards the needy in Afghanistan.  And Angelina has tapped some of the top jewelry designers in the world for this project.

I love how she zeros in on the real issues and puts her celebrity on the line. Educating girls is the clearest path to world peace.

Last week, my kids and I were strolling the aisles of a Connecticut Wal-Mart looking for diapers and t-shirts. Instead I found something more surprising, and it was my six year old that brought it to my attention. As I schlepped my box of diapers to the cart, I heard Maverick cackling. “Mommy, bras for little girls? That is ridiculous!”  I dropped the box and went to see what he was referring to. There on the shelf, were several "padded" bras.

He was right. There were little girl bras. Ridiculous little girl bras. With monkeys on them. And candy. And they were padded. (Did you catch that? Padded. Bras. For. Little. Girls.) Oh, and they weren’t in the “Tweens” section, they were right next to the toddler stuff. I was incensed.
