Story Time with Daddy: Carrie Underwood Shares Video of Husband Mike Fisher Reading to Their Son

It doesn’t get any cuter than story time with daddy!

On Saturday, Carrie Underwood shared a sweet video of husband Mike Fisher reading aloud to their 2½-year-old son Isaiah Michael from a colorful, biblical storybook.

And as Isaiah learned all about Noah and his arc, he also showed that he’s pretty knowledgable about animals as he correctly identified all of the species in the picture book.

“Story time with Daddy…Learning about Noah…and my heart melts❤❤❤ ,” Underwood captioned the precious moment.

Underwood recently broke her wrist after falling on the steps outside her home just a few days after hosting the CMA Awards in November — and in January, she revealed that the incident also caused severe cuts to her face.

In a post to her fan club members, the country singer said that in addition to having surgery on her wrist, she required “40 and 50 stitches” to her face.

“There is also another part of the story that I haven’t been ready to talk about since I have still been living it and there has been much uncertainty as to how things will end up,” she wrote in the note obtained by PEOPLE. “It’s crazy how a freak random accident can change your life.”

For more coverage, follow our babies magazine on Flipboard.

She continued: “In addition to breaking my wrist, I somehow managed to injure my face as well. I’ll spare you the gruesome details, but when I came out of surgery the night of my fall, the doctor told Mike that he had put between 40 and 50 stitches in.”

While she’s still on the road to recovery, seven weeks after the accident she revealed she’s still “not quite looking the same,” and still has yet to share a clear photo of her face (though a fan-shared image made the rounds on the internet since).

“I honestly don’t know how things are going to end up but I do know this: I am grateful,” she wrote. “I am grateful that it wasn’t much, much worse. And I am grateful for the people in my life that have been there every step of the way.”

Being that she didn’t finish off the year quite as planned, the country superstar is ready to make 2018 one for the books.

“I am determined to make 2018 amazing and I want to share things with you along the way,” she concluded. “And when I am ready to get in front of a camera, I want you all to understand why I might look a bit different.”

This Humans Of New York Post About Anxiety Is Required Reading

Admitting you have anxiety can be difficult, but doing so can also help you take control of it.

A recent Humans of New York subject is the perfect case in point. The anonymous young woman, who was featured as part of HONY’s Colombia series, candidly shared how acknowledging her anxiety helped her manage it better.

“I used to try to hide it. I would log off social media. I wouldn’t answer calls,” she told HONY photographer Brandon Stanton. “I thought that if nobody knew, it didn’t exist. But the more I talk about my problem, the more I realize that other people experience similar things. So I’m trying to express it more.

The woman also explained that the pressure she felt to perform well in school led to anxiety and panic attacks, which held her back creatively and academically. An instructor then offered her some sage wisdom after admitting she was dealing with the mental health issue.

“I had a great teacher who told me: ‘Instead of letting anxiety keep you from doing your art, let it be the thing that motivates your art,’” she said.

In typical HONY feel-good fashion, the post got an overwhelmingly positive response. Commenters left messages of support for the woman, encouraging her to continue seeking professional help and applauding her openness about mental health.

“Anxiety can be so debilitating and misunderstood,” Facebook user Meg Wallick wrote on the photo. “Thank you for sharing your experiences. It helps the rest of us know we aren’t alone.”

Nearly 18 percent of Americans are living with an anxiety disorder. The mental health issue is an incredibly common medical problem. Yet research shows there’s a good deal of judgment and shame surrounding it ― which is both self-inflicted and comes from people in society who don’t understand.

It’s this stigma that often keeps those experiencing the condition from speaking up about what they’re going through. However, advocates stress that talking about it is vital in eliminating negative perceptions around mental health.

We commend this HONY subject for doing just that. Can we get more of this?

Paul Wesley Cried While Reading ‘The Vampire Diaries’ Finale Script

You’ve probably heard that The CW’s beloved series “The Vampire Diaries” is coming to an end next month. 

We recently learned former cast member Nina Dobrev is returning to the show, and read her second emotional goodbye to the cast and crew on Instagram. Now, it’s Paul Wesley who’s making us tear up. 

In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Wesley confessed that he cried when he first read the finale script, and he even sent a teary-eyed selfie to the creators of the show. “I wanted them to see that Paul Wesley could actually formulate tears in his personal life and not just on screen,” the actor said.

Unfortunately for us, that selfie is private and will probably never surface to the public. But the thought of Wesley crying in real life is enough for us.

“It’s this very interesting melancholy,” he explained of saying goodbye to his character, Stefan Salvatore.

“I did Stefan’s final scene with Elena [Dobrev]. It was strangely emotional for me. You’re saying goodbye to this time and this moment. The two of us are never going to be playing these characters ever again, and these were really important characters in television for eight years. That’s emotional.”

As for his thoughts on how the show concludes?

“I thought how it ended was powerful.”

“The Vampire Diaries” series finale airs March 10 on The CW

The Pleasures of Reading in an Age of Distraction

The Pleasures of Reading in an Age of Distraction


In recent years, cultural commentators have sounded the alarm about the dire state of reading in America. Americans are not reading enough, they say, or reading the right books, in the right way. In this book, Alan Jacobs argues that, contrary to the doomsayers, reading is alive and well in America. There are millions of devoted readers supporting hundreds of enormous bookstores and online booksellers. Oprah’s Book Club is hugely influential, and a recent NEA survey reveals an actual uptick in the reading of literary fiction. Jacobs’s interactions with his students and the readers of his own books, however, suggest that many readers lack confidence; they wonder whether they are reading well, with proper focus and attentiveness, with due discretion and discernment. Many have absorbed the puritanical message that reading is, first and foremost, good for you-the intellectual equivalent of eating your Brussels sprouts. For such people, indeed for all readers, Jacobs offers some simple, powerful, and much needed advice: read at whim, read what gives you delight, and do so without shame, whether it be Stephen King or the King James Version of the Bible. In contrast to the more methodical approach of Mortimer Adler’s classic How to Read a Book (1940), Jacobs offers an insightful, accessible, and playfully irreverent guide for aspiring readers. Each chapter focuses on one aspect of approaching literary fiction, poetry, or nonfiction, and the book explores everything from the invention of silent reading, reading responsively, rereading, and reading on electronic devices. Invitingly written, with equal measures of wit and erudition, The Pleasures of Reading in an Age of Distraction will appeal to all readers, whether they be novices looking for direction or old hands seeking to recapture the pleasures of reading they first experienced as children.

Reading Beyond the Book: The Social Practices of Contemporary Literary Culture

Reading Beyond the Book: The Social Practices of Contemporary Literary Culture


Literary culture has become a form of popular culture over the last fifteen years thanks to the success of televised book clubs, film adaptations, big-box book stores, online bookselling, and face-to-face and online book groups. This volume offers the first critical analysis of mass reading events and the contemporary meanings of reading in the UK, USA, and Canada based on original interviews and surveys with readers and event organizers.

The resurgence of book groups has inspired new cultural formations of what the authors call “shared reading.” They interrogate the enduring attraction of an old technology for readers, community organizers, and government agencies, exploring the social practices inspired by the sharing of books in public spaces and revealing the complex ideological investments made by readers, cultural workers, institutions, and the mass media in the meanings of reading.

A Life Of Reading Women

At first, it was an accident.

I was a freshman in college and was taking a 45-minute plane ride home to visit my parents. Due to some mixture of indecision and neuroticism (What if we crash?! I didn’t want to be stranded on an island, or worse, Waco, Texas, without something to read!), I always packed three or four books for the trip.

Hobby-wise, I’d barely graduated from high school, where I mostly got lost in sci-fi stories and other very conceptual plots recommended by teachers: Kurt Vonnegut, Chuck Palahniuk, Don DeLillo. I’d signed up for classes taught by professors who assigned more of the same, with the exception of one, who constructed a syllabus made up only of books that had been banned or censored at one point in time (a self-proclaimed scoundrel, he also dressed and talked a little like Han Solo). So, slowly, I learned about Henry Miller’s hunger and Vladimir Nabokov’s fancy prose.

I didn’t look for myself in the stories I read, but sometimes I found myself in them anyway. When I did, it was like glancing in one of those pore-maximizing mirrors — I looked away as quickly as possible.

 

It never occurred to me — or, at least, it didn’t trouble me — that I read far more books by and about men than books by and about women. There were a few fabulous exceptions, but overall gender didn’t dictate my reading list, the same way it didn’t dictate selecting a doctor or a roommate. Citing progressiveness, I claimed not to see gender. I read what I read because I liked solving the central puzzles, liked the anti-establishment tones, liked the thinly veiled philosophy lessons at the core of each story. What teen isn’t searching for an adoptable creed? I was a rambunctious reader; I didn’t want life explained to me plainly, or worse, with a shrug.

I didn’t necessarily look for myself in the stories I read, but sometimes I found myself in them anyway. When I did, it was like glancing in one of those pore-maximizing mirrors — I looked away as quickly as possible.

So, any given carry-on could’ve had my worn copy of On the Road stashed in it, nestled under tampons and tangled headphones. But both in my light and thoughtful reading choices, I neglected to hear to womens’ voices.

On this particular trip, I decided to pack John Updike’s Rabbit, Run (a suggestion) and an anthology of short stories (an assignment). An ex-athlete feeling disenchanted with the strange glory we attach to sports, I was looking forward to Updike, and cracked it open excitedly. But about 20 pages in, I had to stop. A paragraph I’d read made me physically sick.

 


Rich girls frigid? Nymphomaniacs? Must vary. Just women after all […] Funny how the passionate ones are often tight and dry and the slow ones wet. The thing is play them until just a touch. You can tell: their skin under the fur gets all loose like a puppy’s neck.

 

I don’t support trigger warnings, but my experience with Updike feels like a case in their favor. Those words — “all loose like a puppy’s neck” — still pop into my head sometimes like an intrusive thought. Reading them for the first time, I felt reduced to a pet, an animal. But, still, I was conflicted. I remembered the words of my professor, the one who introduced me to more realistic fiction: “This isn’t Oprah’s Book Club. Reading isn’t therapy. It isn’t about you.” Why, then, couldn’t I appreciate Updike, a sort of linguistic wizard who, magically, strings letters together in ways that pop and dazzle? As a reader was I somehow less than if I couldn’t suspend my personal associations with a story, focusing instead on the way it moved, the way it artfully recreated life?

For the first time, I didn’t care. Because as much as reading and writing are about crafting cities and people out of letters and sounds that perfectly match their settings and characters, it is also about explaining the world, or a specific view of it. And as a freshman in a male-dominated English department, I listened to men explaining their specific views of the world to me all day.

Over the next few years I came to realize that, speaking very generally, books written by or about non-marginalized people (read: white men) tend to claim an objective representation of “truth” (as so happens in my once beloved On the Road). This makes sense — their voices are already synched up with the loudest, or most amplified, voices we hear each day. Alternatively, they feature characters who are misfits, questioning or working against an overarching rule or viewpoint (as so happens in my still-beloved Slaughterhouse-Five).

On the other hand, books by or about marginalized people don’t need these constructed misfit scenarios to keep things interesting — in a sense, we’re already misfits. We already work against society’s norms; all we have to do is tell it straight. And, as I’ve grown up, I’ve grown more interested in these subtler stories.

Obligatory disclaimer: #NotAllMen. Obviously, there are exceptions — especially outside stuffy high school and college curriculums. But it’d be wrong to assume that egregiously misogynistic protagonists (only sometimes created by egregiously misogynistic authors) like Rabbit are relics. In plenty of contemporary male writers’ stories, women end up mocked, ridiculed and taken advantage of. Karl Ove Knausgaard’s self-effacing My Struggle relates his affairs with preteen girls; The Marriage Plot by Jeffrey Eugenides (who’s shown that he can write women well, if he tries) features a ridiculous feminist character who puzzlingly blames all of society’s problems on the phallic shapes of buildings; Jonathan Franzen’s forthcoming book Purity has a plucky female protagonist who’s destined to become a batty recluse once she loses her sex appeal.

Enough!

These stories may accurately reveal some of life’s sad realities, but they shouldn’t drown out the voices telling us how women think about women. And they totally do. Books by men get reviewed more often, win awards more often, serve as inspiration for budding writers more often. As one writer recently learned, using a male pseudonym gave her a serious leg up with agents. These revelations have prompted movements, including 2014’s Year of Reading Women, and a new suggestion that 2018 should be deemed a Year of Publishing Women. And while I think the pool of what we publish should be anything but monolithic and restricted, I hope publishers jump on board.

Because whether I like it or not, gender is in everything I read, trumpeted loudly or tucked quietly between the lines. In fact, that day on the plane I unknowingly signed up for a longer-term commitment: a life of reading (mostly) women — or at least as many women as I do men.

Whether I like it or not, gender is in everything I read, trumpeted loudly or tucked quietly between the lines.

Put off as I was by Updike, I needed a palette cleanser. I opened the short story anthology to its Table of Contents, and chose the shortest one in it, just so I could fixate quickly on anything else. Grace Paley’s “Wants” was two pages long. Perfect.

It begins simply with a narrator running into her ex-husband on the steps of their local library. The disagreements that ended their marriage are quickly resurfaced: he had grand ambitions, she aspired to dreamier, less clearly defined accomplishments. He makes a snide remark about how she never had their mutual friends over for dinner; she’s left to contemplate her worth. In an evocative paragraph, Paley writes:

 


“He had had a habit throughout the twenty-seven years of making a narrow remark which, like a plumber’s snake, could work its way through the ear down the throat, half-way to my heart. He would then disappear, leaving me choking with equipment. What I mean is, I sat down on the library steps and he went away.” 

 

So simply, and in an aptly passive voice, she characterized the feeling I’d had minutes earlier reading Rabbit Run, sitting by as a man tried to explain me to myself. For this reason her story has become a classic; a writer who selected it for Electric Literature’s Recommended Reading newsletter mused of her “attempt not only to write the wrongs, but to right the wrongs, being an object lesson more important than any element of craft.”

Which is why women writers like Grace Paley matter. Because while reading “Wants,” and, later, her other stories, I saw myself. And I didn’t look sexy, or like some weird, furry animal. I didn’t have a mystical air or superpowers, but I didn’t need saving, either. I just looked like a person, flawed but good. I read the story over and over until the plane landed. Now, I practically know it by heart.

Bill Nye Reading Mean Tweets Is His Greatest Experiment Yet

Bill Nye taught us a lot about chemical reactions over the years, but none of that comes close to the Science Guy’s reactions to mean tweets

Nye recently read some unflattering tweets in support of a Kickstarter campaign for a documentary about him, which, to be honest, we kind of hope just turns out to be two more hours of tweets.

Mean tweets are a staple on “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” but what happens when Nye’s science and reason meet the incoherent ramblings of the Internet? You get gold, people. Pure gold.

Why Mind Reading Is Detrimental to Your Relationship

2015-07-01-1435794280-6389667-3969908944_e450296f0f_z.jpg

Many of us believe we’ve got other people figured out.

We think we understand their motivation. Rattling off a list of their actions, including all our assumed rationale behind what they do, and drawing conclusions without actually talking to them.

We’re mind readers.

I remember as a kid, my mother spent a great deal of time being angry with my father. She saw him as a workaholic and preferring his business, to spending time with the family. This dynamic was my kid-like perception of their relationship. I took it for granted that she always had him figured out. She was right, he was wrong.

It wasn’t until years later, I realized I never asked my Dad his motivation for working long hours, beyond assuming it was to provide for his family. I had no idea how he actually felt or his deeper drive, but I knew how my mother felt and that was definitely not happy.

I wondered if she ever understood his motivation, if she did, wouldn’t she take it less personally? Wouldn’t she understand more, or make different choices rather than make him the bad guy? Maybe assuming or reading his mind suited her position better.

Not having a clue, I took that modeling with me into many relationships.

Thinking I knew my mate better than they knew themselves I assumed a lot of the time and suffered, because I gave their words and actions my own meaning and took it personally. Assuming without asking or understanding. I was right, they were wrong.

In my mind I had them pegged! Friends and family would agree with me and take my side.

It didn’t serve me. I didn’t win and I didn’t get what I wanted, except the reassurance from others, that I was right.

I never really understood what my past partners’ motivation was for actions that upset me. I never asked a direct question, because I was afraid. I couldn’t handle honest communication. It goes the same for many of my clients and others I’ve met, thinking we know it all, when it comes to our partners.

It’s actually a sign, we don’t know ourselves and don’t want the truth.

If we sit in judgment of someone and believe we’re perfect, or we think our reasons are substantial and their defense weak, our relationships are always going to be fraught with drama. We’re shirking responsibility. We’re making the focus the other person. It keeps emotional intimacy at bay, builds resentment and creates distance.

We’re too busy figuring out their motivation, so we don’t look at our own. It keeps us suspended in a state of reaction to something made up in our head. The false illusion is no one can hurt us or perhaps, we’ll remain in control.

Figuring out our partner can give us a false sense of security, inevitably they’ll do or say something unexpectedly, throwing our world into turmoil. Now, if we trust ourselves to handle whatever comes our way, we’re in a state of good feeling — even if the s**t hits the fan!

Isn’t the goal in a relationship about loving our mate and loving ourselves?

A few keys to getting closer rather than practicing ineffective mind-reading skills:

1. Connection.

Asking ourselves what’s really brewing inside of us, rather than decoding our partners’ words and actions. If we focus on our stuff and doing things to promote self-love, we have more of it to give, instead of looking for reasons to squelch it from our lives.

2. Communicate honestly.

Communicate our true emotional state, desires and motivation. No matter what, we can speak from a heart-centered space, rather than making up a story in our head, which may feel comfortable but drives a wedge.

3. Remember, we are our own problem.

We look at the other person as the problem. And it’s just not true. Basing their motivation on our story of them, rather than taking responsibility, means we’ll repeat the blame game in other relationships.

‘Avengers’ Strangely Makes More Sense With Bad Lip Reading

With so many things going on in the “Avengers” movies, it’s surprising Ultron just didn’t short-circuit from trying to keep up with the plot. Now, for fans who love the movies — but have no idea what’s going on — the Bad Lip Reading YouTube channel is here to save the day.

In the new video, “Redneck Avengers: Tulsa Nights,” Bad Lip Reading imagines what the Avengers would be like in a country-themed reality show. No, it doesn’t make sense, but quotes about spicy nachos and fancy pajamas sure are a lot easier to keep up with than what the heck is happening with the Tesseract, the Chitauri aliens or just about anything with Thor.

Also, thanks to the first “Avengers” movie, there are a lot of theories about what Loki was really after. This video, however, explains the guy just wants Skittles, cigarettes and some Big League Chew — which actually sounds like a pretty fantastic time.

Virginia Tech Coach Buzz Williams Is A Good Sport About Reading Mean Tweets

Buzz Williams may have lost 22 games in his first season as the basketball coach at Virginia Tech, but he certainly didn’t lose his sense of humor.

In a video he posted Monday, Williams takes a page from “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” and reads “mean tweets” about himself.

Some are mean, all right: “He’s got the fattest neck I’ve ever seen.”

“All my stress goes to my neck,” he jokingly replies.

Anyway, props to Williams for being a good sport.

President Obama Reading Mean Tweets Is Your American Dream Come True

Hail to the tweets.

President Barack Obama kicked off his appearance on “Jimmy Kimmel Live” Thursday by reading his very own mean tweets.

Kimmel’s announcement this week that the president would be stopping by the show was obviously huge news for the late night host, but the commander-in-chief’s decision to participate in this popular sketch took things to a whole new level. During the segment, Obama was confronted with all kinds of crazy criticisms, and the stakes seemed even higher than the waistband on his jeans.

It’s fitting that Obama now joins Katy Perry as a “Mean Tweets” alum because this appearance was straight up fireworks.

“Jimmy Kimmel Live” airs weeknights at 11:35 p.m. ET on ABC.

Rigorous Reading: 5 Access Points for Comprehending Complex Texts


What it really means to “read closely.” What could Fern Arable, Jay Gatsby, and Winston Churchill possibly have in common? They all need masterful teachers to help students revel in their complexity. And Nancy Frey and Doug Fisher are just the two mentors to help you make that happen. Call it close reading, call it deep reading, call it analytic reading-call it what you like. The point is, it’s a level of understanding that students of any age can achieve with the right kind of instruction. In Rigorous Reading, Nancy and Doug articulate an instructional plan so clearly, and so squarely built on research, that teachers, schools, and districts need look no further. The 5 Access Points Toward Proficiency 1.Purpose & Modeling: Teachers think aloud to demonstrate critical thinking and how good readers always know why they are reading. 2.Close & Scaffolded Reading Instruction: Teachers engage students in repeated readings and discussions, with text- dependent questions, prompts, and cues to help students delve into an author’s ideas. 3.Collaborative Conversations: Teachers orchestrate collaborative learning to get students in the habit of exercising their analytical thinking in the presence of their peers. 4.An Independent Reading Staircase: Teachers artfully steer students to more challenging books, with strategic bursts of instruction and peer conferences to foster metacognitive awareness. 5.Performance: Teachers offer feedback and assessments that help students demonstrate understanding of text in authentic ways and plan instruction based on student understanding. There’s more . . . Also included are illustrative classroom video clips available via QR codes along with an online Facilitator’s Guide with PowerPoints–making Rigorous Reading the only resource a teacher, school, or district needs to seriously stretch students’ capacity to read and comprehend text.

Reading Beyond the Book: The Social Practices of Contemporary Literary Culture


Literary culture has become a form of popular culture over the last fifteen years thanks to the success of televised book clubs, film adaptations, big-box book stores, online bookselling, and face-to-face and online book groups. This volume offers the first critical analysis of mass reading events and the contemporary meanings of reading in the UK, USA, and Canada based on original interviews and surveys with readers and event organizers. The resurgence of book groups has inspired new cultural formations of what the authors call “shared reading.” They interrogate the enduring attraction of an old technology for readers, community organizers, and government agencies, exploring the social practices inspired by the sharing of books in public spaces and revealing the complex ideological investments made by readers, cultural workers, institutions, and the mass media in the meanings of reading.
