Are We Done Being Extra? Betches

Last night, not one, but TWO celebrities announced their pregnancies: Blake Lively, at the New York City premiere of Pokémon: Detective Pikachu, and Keira Knightley, at a Chanel cocktail party in Paris (très chic). Now, what was surprising about both of these pregnancy announcements was just that—they weren’t really announcements at all. There was not some big press conference or statement released, not even an Instagram of a sonogram with a long caption. It was just “Here I am, and oh btw, I am carrying a child.” I love it. In a time where we are inundated with celebrity “news,” when everything from a double tap on an Instagram post to an airport outfit spawns headline after headline, this non-announcement announcement is …

This Mormon valedictorian came out to 10,000 people in a stirring graduation speech.

On Friday, April 25th, Matthew Easton gave a commencement speech at Brigham Young University to 10,000 people that included a rather unexpected declaration: he came out as gay.   “I stand before my family, friends and graduating class today to say that I am proud to be a gay son of God,” he said. His words were immediately met with deafening cheers from people in the audience, including his sister, who momentarily dropped the phone she was using to record his speech in her excitement. “Four years ago, it would have been impossible for me to imagine that I would come out to my entire college,” he continued in the speech. “It is a phenomenal feeling.

This ‘feel-good’ story about helping out a cash strapped teacher sends the wrong message about how our system is failing teachers.

Elisabeth Milich, like so many other teachers in the country, is paid much less than her worth. She’s a second grade teacher at Whispering Wind Academy in Phoenix, Arizona, a Title 1 school that serves low-income students and receives federal funding. In 2018, Milich’s salary was $35,621.25, and since the funding her school receives is hardly ever enough to cover costs of the classroom supplies she needed to do her job, she’d often dip into her own pockets to make up the difference. So, around the same time that #RedforEd — a teacher-driven movement calling for a 20% pay increase and better education funding — swept across Arizona state, Milich decided to take a bold stand: She shared her salary …

I was my husband’s ‘widow in waiting’

“When I talk about my wife, I talk about her as my widow in waiting.” On 23 December 2018, Steve died aged 62 of organ failure, ultimately caused by the medicine he was given as a young man. ‘The wonder drug’ Steve was born in 1956 with a mild form of haemophilia, a genetic condition that prevents blood from clotting properly.

At Least 20 Students Die By Suicide After Failing School Entrance Exams

At least 20 Indian students have killed themselves over the last two weeks after receiving notification that they had failed intermediate school exams. Most recently, a 17-year-old girl took her life after her parents say she was feeling depressed about failing her zoology test, reports the Khaleej Times.  Between February and March, nearly 1 million students took the intermediate 11th- and 12th-grade standard examinations – but more than one-third were notified that they had failed the test, prompting protests from students, parents, and political groups about the efficacy of grading by the Telangana State Board of Intermediate Education (BIE).  The board’s Chief Minister reportedly ordered that the exam results be reexamined for the test-takers who had failed and urged the students not to harm …
