Robotics camp helps students cross the digital divide – Knight …

Robotics Camp 2013 – Short Film from Shamus Coneys Films on Vimeo.A year ago Knight Foundation announced plans to put laptops into the hands of young students in Charlotte, N.C., through Project LIFT, a public-private partnership that seeks to improve student achievement. Today, we see what can happen when students have access to technology: They can build a better mousetrap – or at least one made of LEGOs – while also building self-confidence.Knight partnered with Project LIFT (Leadership and Investment for Transformation) because we believe children without tech tools and access to the Internet cannot fully participate in the world around them.

I Needed a Personal Shopper – Week 15

“Crying is for plain women. Pretty women go shopping.”―Oscar Wilde I only intended to go in and look at the earrings, and maybe, just maybe find a pair that needed to go home with me. They have a wonderful array of dangling gems that sparkle when they catch the light. After a careful analysis and many holdings up to my ear, I chose a simple, casual pair, that suited me, a simple, casual girl.Then I turned around, and the explosion of colors sucked me into the depths of the store, it happened so fast I didn’t even know I was shopping until I had handed off the earrings, and had two skirts in my hand instead.

We start to really trust ourselves.We all know the feeling of having been lied to by ourselves is not a good one Continue reading
