1. Obama’s head on a woman’s body whilst dancing on pizza. Just take that in.
The “no f*cks given” face on Obama is priceless. And now I’m really hungry after watching the spinning pizza.
Taking your laptop to the park is one thing, but a typewriter? Who are you impressing?!
3. A kind stranger and a dry car.
If a stranger ever did this for me, my soul would be warmed for an eternity.
4. Harry legs.
This is so punny it hurts my soul. So many Harrys.
5. The best air-guitaring Cat ever.
Gusto NYC found this little guy freaking out over nothing. So he gave him a guitar.
These students all NAILED their respective assignments. Unfortunately, they probably all failed their classes but I hope they at least got bonus points from their teachers for their creativity and out of the box thinking. Their misguided but hilarious answers are under-appreciated in the classroom so I think we should all take a moment to respect their work on the Interwebs.[Buzzfeed]
He may be a bit late in the game, but Drake is officially a high school graduate!
“97% on my final exam. 88% in the course,” the 25-year-old rapper tweeted on Tuesday. “One of the greatest feelings in my entire life. As of tonight I have graduated high school!”
Hitting the books this summer, Drake has previously said that he wanted to make his mom proud by getting a high school diploma. And now that he has achieved that goal, he even took the time to thank those who have helped him along the way.
“Thank you to my teacher Kim Janzen for spending the last 5 months working tirelessly with me!! OVO SOUND,” Drake added.
While we would have loved to see a candid of you in a cap and gown, it’s nice to know that education is a priority in his life.
With school coming back in about two weeks, that means Picture Day is around the corner. With so many things to worry about such as clothes, hair, make-up and how you’re going to smile, just one picture taken at the worst moment can make or break what goes into your school yearbook.
Since Pleated-Jeans knows how nerve-racking it is to have your school photo taken, he has come up with 27 things to avoid to increase your likelihood of having a good photo.
Two seventh graders are being called heroes after stopping a school bus from crashing in Washington. After the driver passed out and went unconscious, several students called 911.
Jeremy Wuitschick acted quickly, jumping out of his seat and taking control of the wheel. Meanwhile, another student named Johnny Wood began performing CPR. These kids are quick thinking heros! Who knows what would have happened if they weren’t there?
Rebecca Black surprised everyone last night with a performance on America’s Got Talent. Black did a mashup of “Friday” and her new single “My Moment.”
This performance is on the heels of Rebecca announcing she is leaving school to focus on her singing career, and after she received harassment from her peers at school.
“When I walk by they’ll start singing ‘Friday’ in a really nasally voice,” she told ABC News. “Or, you know, they’ll be like, ‘Oh hey, Rebecca, guess what day it is?’”
Based on this video, we think Rebecca should learn to deal with bullies and stay in school. Although she seems like a nice girl, we aren’t sure she’s got the “talent” to last very long in the music business.
Beyonce is teaming up with The National Association of Broadcasters Education Foundation (NABEF) to encourage kids to stay active and healthy through dancing, reports Fit Perez.
The initiative, entitled “Let’s Move! Flash Workout”, is in support for Michelle Obama’s “Let’s Move” campaign to curb childhood obesity. The campaign encourages middle school students across the U.S. to perform a pre-choreographed dance exercise at 1:42 p.m. on May 3. The event is being produced in partnership with the National Middle School Association, the National School Boards Association and the American Association of School Administrators.
“NABEF is proud to assist the First Lady’s ‘Let’s Move!’ campaign and supports efforts to address the epidemic of childhood obesity,” said NABEF President Marcellus Alexander. “We can think of no greater gift to America than keeping our schoolchildren healthy.”
The singer has re-written and re-recorded one of her songs, and even has recorded an instructional video demonstrating the “Lets Move! Flash Workout” routine.
On Wednesday, the First Lady spoke on a conference call to discuss advancing the “Let’s Move!” program goal of doubling the number of U.S. schools participating in the Healthier US School Challenge Program.
I couldn’t have thought of a better person for the job. Beyonce sings, she dances, she’s in great shape, and she’s someone young students can identify with. I remember many nights where I’ve done the “Single Ladies” dance with my friends (maybe I shouldn’t admit that) and Beyonce definitely has many other people dancing.
I love celebrity do-good-ers, and I’m positive this initiative will be a success. Celebrities have that effect on people where they want to participate, it gets people’s attention. If it takes Beyonce shaking her booty to get kids moving, or Lady GaGa selling MAC lipstick to fight AIDS, then so be it. Plus, if a personalized Beyonce dance video doesn’t get kids moving, I sure to hell don’t know what will.
A British school that lost all of its musical instruments in a 2007 flood has received a big helping hand from Coldplay.
The super group have purchased a $6,000 Kemble piano for St David’s School, a primary school in Moreton-in-Marsh.
After a neighbour told bassist Guy Berryman about the school’s plight, the band sprung into action.
“It is fantastic,” head teacher Bob Forster told BBC News. “I was impressed they cared enough to want to help. Music is important to St David’s and gives huge pleasure to people inside and out of the school.”
The children of the school have sent a thank you letter to the band, and will send photos of themselves with the piano.
A group of enterprising university students has launched “BooksForSchool.ca,” Canada?s first free textbook exchange web site, based on a social networking concept, which links students within similar schools and courses. BooksForSchool.ca helps reduce the costs of post-secondary textbooks by creating an online community of buyers and sellers.
Motivated by concern over the high cost of education, rising tuitions, living expenses and onerous textbook fees, student developers were anxious to find creative ways to manage the accumulating student debt load. As a result of the hard work put into the development of BooksForSchool.ca, students now have a convenient system to save money and time with the free online textbook exchange service.
An online textbook exchange service is a web site that facilities the direct exchange of post-secondary textbooks between students. Members may buy, sell or exchange their new and used textbooks without surcharges.
“Textbook fees continue to rise and schools continue to devalue buyback offers on used textbooks,” said Lawson Hennick, press coordinator of the BooksForSchool.ca web site. “BooksForSchool.ca allows students to determine the price of textbooks without the added expense of the middleman.”
BooksForSchool.ca matches students with others across Canada who have the textbooks they need. Web site tools automatically inform students by email when a required textbook becomes available. BooksForSchool.ca is completely free to buy, sell or trade textbooks so students can retain much more of their initial investment when selling their textbooks online.
“Since BooksForSchool.ca is a national initiative, books which may be outdated in one province may retain full value in another province,” explains student web developer Paul Levine. “We are very excited to share this cost saving opportunity to students across the country.?
Founded in 2003, BooksForSchool.ca pioneered the country wide online textbook exchange service in Canada. In 2005, BooksForSchool.ca combined textbook swapping with social networking, enabling students to decrease their expenses and make it easier to buy and sell new and used textbooks.
BooksForSchool.ca is a completely free service for university and college students. The BooksForSchool.ca web site can be accessed by visiting: http://www.booksforschool.ca.
