If you are a parent or a teacher in the States, then you have to know about the Common Core State Standards, right? These standards were quietly placed into effect 5 years ago. It was Officially named the “Common Core State Standards Initiative,” Common Core is a massive effort to transform K–12 education in America by creating tough new standards for what kids should know and be able to do at each grade level—and tough tests to go along with them.
But if you ask parents and teachers, they all seem to be confused about what it really is.
What the Public School System Explains:
Welcome Film Friday fans. This is a bit different for us, we found this little Indiegogo campaign for a sweet little show that wants to be made. Scheduled to be a reality show on human’s need to search for something bigger than themselves. We think it is an important film. Brought to you by House Of International Media and award winning director Vishal Hiraskar, we are hoping for big things out of this project. Support the Indiegogo campaign at http://www.indiegogo.com/projects/soul-search-what-are-we-looking-for/x/2643
I’ve always wanted to do this but felt like I would get heat from PETA. But maybe they found the beauty in this as well. I want to be an eagle when I grow up! This is what happens when you strap a GoPro Camera on to the back of an Eagle.
There is way too much going on in the Middle East right now. Sadly most of it is leading to death and of course our hearts go out to the innocent. After taking numerous courses on Middle Eastern politics, it is still a mystery. The conflict in Syria has been at the top of the news and our minds for well over a month. But how much do you really know about Syria? This clip is brought to you by vlogbrothers, and does a good job of explaining the situation in under 5 minutes.
If you have ever been pulled over by a police officer and ticketed at the end of the month, the first thoughts through your head was probably, “This cop just needs to make quota”. If you ask an officer, 9 times out of 10 they will say that it is not true, only a myth. But a former Alabama police officer, Justin Hanners tells a different story.

The bigger they are the harder they fall. Check out this video of the Second largest US Navy Aircraft Carrier and a small “No Spoiler” try to have a chest beating contest.
This is the type of voice that moves souls. There is noting like the voice that has the ability to speak to ones soul.Lillie McCloud is a voice familiar from a time that has passed us by nearly 30 years ago. Bring back great voices please.
Ahh yes. Animation, truths about the food industry, cool music and a Mobile Application to boot. You had us at at sofritas. Chipotle seems to be in the right place at the right time with not just its menu items but also its new marketing Ad which introduces its new mobile App game for iOS. But this story and campaign have a much deeper story to tell about the food industry’s dirty little secrets. Not usually does a major corporation surprise us… Good job Chip!
Apollo Robbins is hailed as one of the greatest Pick Pockets around… I don’t know I know a few people around the block from me
that are pretty good. But whatever the general consensus is, I just think Apollo is pretty entertaining. Without spoiling anything pay attention to
everything he says. Thanks Ted Talks for always keeping us informed.
