Pratt Students Help Honor Pyer Moss’ Kerby Jean-Raymond at Annual Fashion Show

NEW YORK — Pratt showcased the work of 17 designers Thursday night at Spring Studios, and honored Pyer Moss’ Kerby Jean-Raymond with the Pratt Fashion Visionary Award.
In an interview Friday, Moss said he hoped students would remember that “the process is supposed to be long and intense, and if they stay the course they will eventually reach the goal and the purpose that was assigned to them by the universe. As artists, we go through the ebbs and flows and sometimes we don’t survive them. I just want them to know that at some point it does get better.”
Jean-Raymond received the award from his mentor Dapper Dan, who can appreciate that sentiment. Over the past four years, the two men have had many conversations and “Sunday talks,” Jean-Raymond said, adding that Dan has always been someone who he could count on pre-Gucci. “We navigated through different fashion industries, but at the end, we ended up in the same place,” Jean-Raymond said.
In addition to researching his next collection for his show in September, the designer said he is working on a signature shoe for Reebok. With his contract with Reebok scheduled to run out this year, the designer said he is

NEW YORK — Protection from both the elements and the news of the day was how one judge described many of the looks that paraded down the runway at the Fashion Institute of Technology’s 2019 Future of Fashion Runway show.
The show, held Thursday night at FIT, showcased some 99 looks from this year’s students graduating from the school’s Fashion Design BFA program.

The show, professionally produced by Jack Rich, is supported by a $ 2 million, multiyear gift from FIT alumnus Calvin Klein through the Calvin Klein Family Foundation, as well as the company he founded, Calvin Klein Inc. The show was also supported by Brother International Corp., which supplied FIT with more than $ 100,000 worth of sewing, embroidery and electronic cutting machine products.
The presentation was chockablock with craftsmanship and embellishments, including a chunky handknit coat; a hand-printed bomber jacket; a reflective puffer jacket; a “spaceman” sweater, and a gray industrial felt dress.

Melania Trump Meets With Students in Microsoft’s Innovation and Policy Center

TECHNICALLY SPEAKING: While President Trump continues to backpedal from Monday’s meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin, First Lady Melania Trump tried to put her best foot forward Thursday with an appearance at Microsoft Innovation and Policy Center in Washington, D.C.
There to play up her “Be Best” campaign, FLOTUS had a meet-and-greet with students involved in Microsoft’s Council for Digital Good. Made up of 15 students from the U.S., the council offers ideas and feedback for Microsoft’s youth-focused online safety policy work. The First Lady listened in as students presented their art projects that were meant to represent “individual expressions of digital civility,” according to a readout released by her office Thursday afternoon. The students also spelled out their creative process. Trump lent an ear to learn about the 15 tenets of responsible digital behavior established by the teenage council.
Thursday’s appearance follows pointed critiques of the First Lady in The Washington Post, The New York Times and other media outlets on the heels of the Trumps’ weeklong NATO-U.K.-Helsinki trip. Regardless of what the incentive for the meeting with the Microsoft-affiliated students was, Trump offered her own takeaway in the readout from the event.

London College of Fashion BA Students Put Innovation First

LONDON — London College of Fashion staged its first multisensory and immersive graduate BA show, a visual-sonic event that highlighted works from 180 students studying media, print, fashion contour and men’s and women’s wear.
While some took the traditional catwalk route during the show at the Oval Space in east London, other students opted to project their portfolios as short films on screens positioned on the runway. Designs ranged from the experimental to the theatrical, and this year’s graduating class favored facemasks and utilitarian inspired ensembles.
Julia Hofer-Maire kicked off the show with foam-constructed tops. Men’s wear student Xu followed her, sending out stripes and checked suits with large floral patchwork embellishments. Women’s wear student Mijuko looked to the great outdoors, with separates designed with large heritage style checks that were adorned with sleeping bag-inspired decorations.
Carolina Raquel, another women’s wear student, opted for full volume. Her looks were created with technical fabrics that were bunched, folded and tied to create full skirt shapes in a simple palette of red, white and black.
Embroidery student Amelia Skarpellis and knitwear student Alexandra Anderson collaborated on colorful deconstructed textiles. Knitwear sat loose and large on the model’s body and there were cutouts and looped threads held together by metal rings. A

Central Saint Martins’ MA Students Present Graduate Collections at London Fashion Week

Student graduate shows can be hit or miss but the 19 MA students from Central Saint Martins presented an exciting mix that ran the sartorial gamut from extreme silhouettes and innovative textiles to sleek tailoring in more traditional fabrications.
Among the highlights: Liam Johnson, whose sculptural silhouettes opened the show; Elise Perrotta’s all cream collection featuring wardrobe staples in textural knits, and women’s wear designer Edwin Mohney, who closed the show with a provocative collection that included conceptual pieces made using inflatables wrapped in packing tape.
As in past seasons, craftsmanship in the men’s wear stood out. Particularly noteworthy was Olaf Tavares Vieira, whose draped men’s wear collection was awarded the L’Oreal Professional Creative Award. Inspired by utilitarianism and the stomach as the center of the body, his lineup included fluid ankle-grazing coats, along with sweaters with cutouts in the back and slouchy trousers enveloping the torso that had a monkish appeal.
“I like clothes that are close on the neck and belly and on the ankle,” Vieira explained. “It gives me a kind of strength, even if the clothes are soft.”
He shared the prize with women’s wear designer Rebecca Jeffs, whose tactile collection was a clever play on famous sayings such as

Denver Cheerleading Coach Who Forced Students Into Splits Will Not Face Criminal Charges

The Colorado high school cheerleading coach at the center of a police investigation after video surfaced of him forcing cheerleaders into painful splits will not face criminal charges in the incident, the Denver District Attorney’s Office announced in a press release.

According to the release, the decision not to charge Ozell Williams was made after a “detail investigation” by the Denver Police Department, which included interviews with cheerleaders, their parents and school staff.

“The video of the incident involving the injured student that has been widely disseminated is painful to watch,” District Attorney Beth McCann said in a statement. “However, after a very thorough and careful review of all of the evidence gathered in the investigation and the statements of many members of the cheerleading squad, I have concluded that the evidence does not support the filing of criminal charges.”

Continued McCann, “In order to prove a charge of criminal behavior, the case must be proved beyond a reasonable doubt. There are differing opinions regarding the use of this technique of cheerleading training. While I believe the technique should not be used, that is not the standard of proof for a criminal case. Most of the cheerleading squad participated in the technique that day, and there are differing accounts of the circumstances.”

The video, reportedly filmed during Denver’s East High School cheer camp in June, showed incoming-freshman, Ally Wakefield, being held down into a splits position by fellow cheerleaders and her recently-hired coach, Williams. Wakefield excruciatingly yelled “please, stop!” multiple times in the video as Williams pushed her down further by her shoulders.

RELATED VIDEO: Denver Cheerleading Coach Under Investigation Was Also Fired from Previous Job for Forcing

After the clip went viral in August, Williams was placed on leave alongside six other administrators at the school — East Principal Andy Mendelsberg, East Athletic Director Lisa Porter, East Assistant Cheer Coach Mariah Cladis and DPS Deputy General Counsel Michael Hickman — Denver Public Schools Superintendent Tom Boasberg told PEOPLE in a statement.

Williams was dismissed and Principal Mendelsberg retired as a result of the controversy. The school’s athletic director, Porter, also was removed from her position, CBS News reported in August.

“The individual involved should not be a coach in high school sports and he no longer is,” said McCann in her statement supporting the decision to not pursue charges. “The principal and athletic director of the school have retired and resigned. The message should be clear that this type of technique has no place in high school cheerleading coaching. The bad judgment of the coach, however, does not constitute a prosecutable crime.”

Donatella Versace Sets Scholarship for Central Saint Martins Students

REMEMBERING GIANNI: Donatella Versace is throwing her support — once again — behind young London talent in an important anniversary year for the brand.
Versace, who is in London for the Versus show on Sunday, has unveiled the Gianni Versace Scholarship, which aims to provide a “comprehensive financial support package” for a student starting the MA Fashion Course at Central Saint Martins this fall.
“Central Saint Martins educates and trains some of the best talents in the world of fashion. Many of their alumni have come to work with me over the years,” Versace said.
“I have always been a great advocate of supporting and listening to young talent, and it is with great pleasure that we are funding a yearly scholarship at the college as a tribute to my brother Gianni. He was a visionary designer, and in his memory we wanted to nurture the creators of tomorrow.”
The scholarship marks the 20-year anniversary of Gianni Versace’s murder in Miami, after which Donatella took control of the design studio.
Over the years, many graduates of Central Saint Martins have worked on the various Versace collections, including Christopher Kane and Louise Goldin. Michael Halpern, who graduated with an MA in women’s wear from CSM last

Design Students Get Political at London Graduate Fashion Week

LONDON — Graduate Fashion Week was dominated by politics, in the tone of the collections on show and students’ statements.
The five-day event took place this year at East London’s Truman Brewery and showcased the work of students from more than 30 U.K. universities. It wrapped with a Gala Awards Show that highlighted the work of the top 25 students.
London’s latest terrorist attack, which saw eight people die, took place as the showcase was happening, as did the country’s national general election, which ended with a hung Parliament and a weakened Conservative prime minister.
At the start of the showcase, Mark Newton-Jones, the charity’s chairman, was defiant in the face of the terrorist attack. “This is exactly what we should be doing – carrying on with life,” he said.
Graduates voiced their views about the state of British society with slogans printed all over their garments. Lauren McArthur, a design student from the University of Creative Arts Rochester, printed phrases such as “I’m Lost” on girly, pastel-hued dresses, while Sarah Rafferty from Nottingham Trent University splashed words such as “Woe to the Rich” or “Money is Power” on oversized pinstripe suits for men.

This Kindergarten Teacher’s Students Can Dance Bachata Better Than Us

One Washington, D.C., teacher is passing on his love for salsa, bachata and more to his kindergarteners ― one dance step at a time. 

KIPP DC Promise Academy teacher Edwin Sorto, who is an experienced salsa dancer, and his classroom of “dancing minis” are viral sensations thanks to the videos he uploads to the Mr. Sorto’s Class Facebook page.

“They work incredibly hard at both academics and dance and they absolutely deserve the recognition,” Sorto told USA Today in an article published Wednesday. “They’re proud of what they do and love to see people’s reactions, comments, and likes on their videos. Their parents are also incredibly supportive. My kids are great, and this is just one more thing that keeps them engaged in school.”

There’s almost no musical genre too difficult for these kiddos, thanks to Sorto. They’ve mastered bachata …

salsa …. 

and merengue.

“It’s amazing the way they learn,” Sorto told Telemundo’s “¡Qué Noche! con Angélica y Raúl” last year. “The way they enjoy the music, just like we Latinos do.” 

As if that weren’t enough, Sorto is also teaching his students how to read in Spanish. “They’re only 5 but reading with confidence,” he wrote in the caption of a video of two students reading out loud. 

But these students’ claim to internet fame is certainly their sweet moves ― which go far beyond Latin genres.

“[I’m] now focused on building the next generation of dancers through my own students,” Sorto told USA Today.

Everyone Is Confused By This Student’s Prom Proposal Sign

Texas high school student Marlen Williams created a basketball-themed sign to ask his friend to the prom. He presented it to her with a toy basketball, she read the sign and, apparently, she said yes.

Williams shared the beautiful moment on his Twitter account on Monday. Happily ever after, right?

Wrong.

Twitter, being the cruel and fickle place that it is, pounced on Williams’ sign, claiming it was confusing, incoherent and disobeyed the laws of grammar. Hundreds of people took it upon themselves to tell him so.

“It’s crazy how viral something can get that’s unplanned,” Williams told The Huffington Post. “When I was making the poster, I never imagined all of this.”

Despite all the digital commotion, Williams’ sign does have a coherent and witty message. The words were just awkwardly placed.

The sign reads:

You’ll run the 1, I’ll be 2. I’d love to take a shot at prom with you. #12

It’s basketball jargon referring to players’ positions on the court, and Williams, a shooting guard for his school’s basketball team, was just being sweet. 

If you still can’t read it, helpful Twitter users photoshopped the sign so it would be easier to read.

Even though his sign was a tad bit jumbled, Williams can ignore all the internet trolls. After all, his date did say yes.

Pratt Lines up ’47 for Redesign Course, Recruits Rochambeau and Aluna Francis to Help Judge Students’ Work

DESIGNER DISASSEMBLAGE: The unlikely consortium of the Boston-based company ’47, Pratt Institute, Rochambeau designers Joshua Cooper and Laurence Chandler and musician-model Aluna Francis will be joining forces on April 27 at National Sawdust.
The fashion show in Brooklyn will be the cap-off event for the unprecedented “47 Redesign” course, which challenged Pratt students to deconstruct New York Yankees baseball hats, NFL hoodies and other ’47 dead stock to reimagine them. The aspiring designers had their work cut out for them re-creating the ’47 apparel and accessories as their own. With the help of Cooper and Chandler, five finalists got the nod to present micro-collections later this month. Francis, who has modeled for Alexander Wang and performs with AlunaGeorge, will be lending a critical eye.
How Cooper and Chandler wound up working on the Pratt project is a story in itself. A few years, ago during their CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund days, they wanted to work with the Swet Shop Boys’ Riz MC, who is now more widely known as Rizwan Ahmed, the actor behind HBO’s “The Night Of.” While designing looks for the Swet Shop Boys’ upcoming tour, the designers met his bandmate Heems, who works with the production company behind the Pratt

Maurizio Pecoraro to Support Istituto Marangoni Fashion Students

Designer Maurizio Pecoraro will help the students of fashion and design school Istituto Marangoni in the development of their fashion collections to be presented at the school’s graduate fashion show in June.

Christopher Kane, Central Saint Martins Students Reimagine ‘Beauty and the Beast’

DISNEY FOR ADULTS: Disney is giving its adult fans a chance to relive their childhoods with a series of designer collaborations marking its new adaptation of “Beauty and the Beast.”
Christopher Kane is among Disney’s most popular collaborators, having just launched an extensive collection of ready-to-wear and accessories inspired by the new film.
As a self-confessed Disney fan and “animation snob” since childhood, the designer said he had always been looking for the right opportunity to partner with Disney.
“I hated ‘Tom and Jerry,’ I hated all that crap. I only watched Disney as a child, and ‘Beauty and the Beast’ was even more of an exception because Belle was not a princess; she was a normal girl, she was smart, she was an outsider, so that’s why I had an immediate attraction,” said Kane, who celebrated the collection launch at his Mount Street flagship on Thursday.
The new, “more mature” adaptation of the film featuring Emma Watson as Belle presented an opportunity for the designer to reimagine the children’s classic into a collection for adults.

He re-created the rose motif in myriad ways, printing it on simple T-shirts or sweatshirts with sleeve cutouts, incorporating it on a macramé lace minidress or adding oversize floral

Rats Beware: These Broom-Toting College Students Don’t Mess Around

This plan is as elaborate as the Mousetrap board game.

A group of college roommates attending Duquesene University in Pittsburgh faced a daunting problem when a large rat moved in to their space. Instead of cowering in fear at the threat ― like many would ― they banded together to defeat the “Rat King.”

Their plan required patience, precision, and a ridiculously clutch sweep of a broom. The women blocked off the “Rat King’s” route and prepared for battle.

“We were all freaking out,” Jody Mackin told Buzzfeed News.  

After they set the trap, Mackin and her friends sprung into action. Video shows the rat flopping down the stairs like a rag doll before the boyfriend of one of the roommates sweets the animal outside.

Many Twitter users hailed the women as heroes for creating the ingenious trap.

 But some felt sorry for the rat.

 

But many were happy that the rodent escaped intact.

Students Send Hilarious Tweets To Superintendent Thanking Him For Snow Day

This is as pure as the driven snow.

On Feb. 9, Joseph Roy, the superintendent for the Bethlehem Area School District in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, announced on Twitter that school was cancelled for the day because of severe weather conditions that hit the northeast.

And, like most kids, the students in his district were elated to have a snow day, and sent him responses that are as jubilant as a snowball fight:

Roy told the Huffington Post that students have been doing this for about five years because he always announces school closures on Twitter first.

He estimates that about 2,000 to 3,000 of his 9,000-plus followers on Twitter are students in his district. And their responses to his cancellation tweets are always pretty great.

“High school kids are clever and often very funny,” he told HuffPost. “I love our Bethlehem students, they are down to earth and just good kids.”

Roy also explains that the reason why this particular cancellation is getting traction online is because his daughter, Jessica Roy, who works for New York Magazine and has a large social media following tweeted about it:

And her followers adored the kids’ responses.

Roy also says that all this positive energy surrounding his weather-cancellation tweets has helped strengthen his relationships in his district.

“In this big district, kids now know who their superintendent is through Twitter,” he said. “So when I visit schools they have a connection. That’s cool.”

But they may not think he so cool after HuffPost asked him whether or not there would be school on Friday. “Yes! It’s been sunny all day. Roads look good,” he said.

But, for all the Bethlehem students out there reading this, there is still a glimmer of hope. “I haven’t ruled out a delayed opening if roads freeze up,” Roy said.

Fingers crossed!

GANT x Future: Iconic Retailer Partners with Design Students

Steve Jobs and Leo Tolstoy shared a surprising creative belief. The simplest things are the hardest to master. “You have to work hard to get your thinking clean to make something simple,” said Jobs. This fall, in the heart of San Francisco, a Menswear Styling class has been working on a project unlike any other in the industry: reinventing the classic white button-down. Except this isn’t an ordinary school project but a collaboration between the iconic US retailer GANT and the Academy of Art University School of Fashion. This unique engagement marked the first time the brand has partnered with an educational institution. The one-of- a-kind incentive is having their work showcased at the GANT flagship store in San Francisco. What a great experience!

Eleven senior styling student were given a GANT shirt and the liberty to reinterpret it for a lookbook. The only direction was to focus on the versatility of the garment without having it resemble another line. Every step of the process was in the hands of the students. In an interview with Fashion School Daily, the Assistant Director of Styling in the School of Fashion, Flore Morton stated that she "wanted students to build full stories, investigate brands, and think like designers.” The students turned for inspiration to the brand’s stylish present and captivating heritage.

GANT was founded in 1949 in New Haven, Connecticut. It has since expanded globally beyond menswear into other market segments creating a name for itself as a premier lifestyle brand with aims to increase its reach by 2020 under the new direction of global CEO Patrik Nilsson. GANT has originally been associated with effortless Ivy League style and quality tailored shirts. In addition to the classic sportswear heritage GANT line they’ve also launched GANT Diamond G and GANT Rugger, contemporary lines reflecting diverse aesthetics.

Back to the earlier simplicity discourse. Tolstoy argued that “the simplest thing cannot be made clear to the most intelligent man if he is firmly persuaded that he knows already, without a shadow of doubt, what is laid before him.” Students had to start from clean slate. Fangdi Li opted to use the GANT Rugger Indigo denim shirt for her nocturnal vision: draping of the shirt on the body in a linear way over a black hoodie for a restructured silhouette. Teresa Tran kept the focus on layering possibilities. She infused vintage pieces with the GANT shirt that was accented with accessories influenced by the subcultures of the film “This is England”. Sophia Charles drew inspiration from the GANT Instagram account and the French film “La Haine” for her minimalist yet bold version with accessorized with electric red tape. Overall, the results showcased GANT adaptability and immense talent of the Academy students.

The Academy is the only American school with an accredited styling program! It seems like a natural fit for the school and the brand, both of whom focus on quality, innovation and laying a foundation for a more fashionable future. For the creative director Christopher Bastin, it’s all about legacy, “having a legacy is something that sets you apart and gives you authenticity and credibility. And, most importantly, it gives you a platform and security as a brand.” This pioneering collaboration also benefited Fashion Journalism students who were assigned to follow the process closely and report on it via various outlets. Stephan Rabimov, director of Social Media Center and Fashion Journalism, commented: “Opportunities like this benefit all involved. Our students loved working with GANT. We salute the GANT team for their visionary leadership and look forward to providing more professional experiences that are not available at any other institution.”

Subtropics: Hustlers, Students, and Juicy Fruits Heat Up


In Summer Afternoon Delight, a naked young man slumbers by the pool of a gay clothing optional apartment complex on a hot and humid South Florida day when Skip, a young, hung, god-like neighbor takes a swim. Does he also take the slumbering nudist to heights of sexual frenzy or is it all a dream? A young straight doctor hesitatingly picks up a twink with car trouble in rural western Palm Beach County. Before the day is over, the teenaged student seduces the doctor and a sexual frenzy ensues. Read the entire erotic encounter in The Stranded Twink: A Tale of Two Virgins Sexy Guys Walking describes the various walking styles of twinks. My favorite sex partners are those who lope rather than strut, swish, or engage otherwise in pedestrian activity. Carlos was a loper and my ploy to snare him and get into his ass was successful; or was he wise to me all along? A wealthy forty-something gay man decides that Playing with Hustlers would provide an evening’s entertainment. A little bondage, a couple of sex toys and some deftly applied electric current ensure he gets his money’s worth from the two twinks. Frat Boy Bullies on Spring Break meet a high school dropout picking up trash at an ocean-side resort. Was the eighteen year old Midwesterner gang banged by the fraternity brothers or did his darkest fantasies come to life?

Retaining Online Students


Low retention rates among first time students plague many higher education institutions and are even worse for those institutions that offer programs completely online. This study evaluated the effectiveness of an online bridge program in improving the retention rates of these first time students as compared to those students who did not complete the program. The study was a formative program evaluation, to evaluate the progress of the current program and to offer suggestions on how to improve the program to better serve future students. This is geared for higher education administrators, faculty, and staff who are looking for interventions that has the potential for improving student retention rates.

John Leguizamo Says High School History Makes Latino Students Feel ‘Invisible’

Latino contributions to U.S. history remain largely absent from high school history books, and John Leguizamo is doing something about it.

The 51-year-old actor and comedian sat down with HuffPost Live’s Alyona Minkovski Tuesday to discuss his upcoming film “American Ultra” and his upcoming comedy project “Latin History for Dummies.”

Over the years, Leguizamo has had success with autobiographical one-man shows like “Freak” and “Ghetto Klown,” in which he details his life experiences as a Latino growing up in the U.S. These projects, he told HuffPost Live, arose partly because he felt Latinos were underrepresented in the media.

“It was like, I’m watching TV and I’m watching movies and listening to radio and we’re invisible,” Leguizamo said. “I was like, where are all the Latin people that I hang out with and goof with all day and talk about politics and talk about art?… So I started writing my own stuff, I wanted to see my people the way I saw them.”

On the topic of Latino visibility, the comedian showed particular concern for the absence of Latinos in U.S. history education — despite research that shows Latino students exposed to ethnic studies perform better in school. 

“Just imagine, you’re a white kid and all of a sudden everybody’s Latin and everything they’re teaching you is Latin and you don’t hear anything about yourself or about your contributions,” Leguizamo said. “You don’t know hear about George Washington, you don’t hear about Thomas Jefferson and you feel like you haven’t contributed anything. How would you feel? How would you think of your future? How would you think of your participation in American culture?”

“You feel like an invisible person screaming in the woods and nobody hears you,” he added. “And it’s really weird and unfair because we had huge contributions.”

Watch Leguizamo discuss Latino contributions to U.S. history above. And watch the full segment below to hear the actor’s thought on who is to blame for the lack of Latinos in film.

Utah Valley University Designs ‘Texting Lane’ For Students

While less deadly than texting drivers, texting walkers are now getting their own public intervention. Utah Valley University unveiled a “texting lane” June 7 with the hopes of calling the attention of phone-absorbed students.

As students head to the new Student Life and Wellness Center at the Orem, Utah, institution, they will be diverted into one of three lanes, labeled “walk,” “run” and -– in keeping with the times -– “text.” The lanes themselves make up a track that imitates the athletic facilities within the complex.

The school’s creative director, Matt Bambrough, designed the graphic mostly to draw students’ attention.

“This design was intended to be visual first and functional second,” Bambrough told The Huffington Post. “In our research, the most successful environmental graphics… match that formula.”

“This graphic is obviously more aesthetic than functional,” he said in a press release, adding, “we’ve noticed that most texters aren’t actually following the posted lanes.”

The reality is that texting while walking can have legitimate harmful effects. Each year thousands of pedestrians end up in the emergency room due to walking and texting injuries -– a number that increased fivefold between 2005 and 2010, as cell-phone usage surged. More than half of all cell phone owners have experienced “distracted walking” — bumping into something or someone — according to a recent Pew Study.

Despite the dangers of looking down, Bambrough insists that the lane better serves the purpose of making students look up.

“This was certainly done in a way that was meant to be fun and not to be a directive of the university,” Bambrough explained. “We have 18- to 24-year-olds walking on campus glued to their smartphones, it’s the nature of the world we live in.”

Utah Valley may be a “text lane” pioneer on campus, but the the concept has been appropriated for publicity stunts on sidewalks all over the world, from Belgium to China to Washington, D.C.

With the author’s experienced background in educational planning, management and policy formulation and implementation, this book brings to the light the situation on implementation of selected health and nutrition policies in Kenyan schools.

Carnegie Mellon Students Create Interactive Graphic Novel To Teach How To Stop Sexual Assault

A class at Carnegie Mellon University has created an interactive graphic novel aimed at helping students better understand how to spot warning signs and intervene to stop sexual assault in real social situations.

The online game, “Decisions that Matter,” walks users through various scenarios on campus. Your character might experience catcalling, notice someone being groped by a friend or go to a party where a sexual assault may or may not take place, depending on the choices you make. The game is meant to provide a better way for students to understand how an approach called “bystander intervention” actually works.

cmu decisions that matter

The class’ goal was to create something students wouldn’t “roll their eyes” at, unlike some other products on the market.

“We think this is really different — a welcome experience — that makes people want to think harder about it,” said Andy Norman, an adjunct faculty member in CMU’s philosophy department.

“One of the things I first said when they came to me,” said Jessica Klein, CMU’s coordinator of gender programs and sexual violence prevention, “I said, ‘I am so tired of these cheesy products with these standard stock photos of white people in a business setting.’ It’s so not relatable.”

In fact, the students are so pleased with their project, they’re offering it for free to other colleges to use in their freshman orientation programs. Klein said her office is discussing how they’ll incorporate it into their own schoolwide efforts. One possibility is that the school will hold small group sessions, perhaps within a fraternity or led by a resident adviser, where students can play through the game and then discuss it.

cmuahole

The interdisciplinary project course is designed to combine social sciences with technology in ways that address actual issues in society. The class, part of CMU’s Entertainment Technology Center, went through 30 revisions of the game’s script and play-tested the results. Students were trying to guard against elements “that sounded corny or sounded too preachy, or [where] the point was too obvious,” Norman said.

“They worked very hard to make sure the story is not predictable and the answers you are expected to give are not predictable,” he explained.

cmuummm
cmu well it might

Savannah Badalich, a student at the University of California, Los Angeles, noted with approval that the game includes “a diverse group of students saying things students would actually say.”

“I love that it covers sexual harassment, and in a real setting off the bat,” said Badalich, who founded the anti-rape group 7000 In Solidarity at UCLA. Sexual harassment is one of the hardest things to explain to students, she said — especially certain ideas, like how catcalling is actually harassment.

Badalich added that she hopes “Decisions that Matter” will eventually also incorporate stalking, intimate partner violence and LGBTQ relationships.

If the game doesn’t address those issues, then it “erases the experiences of LGBTQ survivors and male survivors,” said Tracey Vitchers, chair of the nonprofit advocacy group Students Active for Ending Rape.

“Other problematic aspects of ‘Decisions that Matter’ have to do with the positioning of the characters themselves,” Vitchers told The Huffington Post. “[Character] Natalie is positioned as having very little agency, which reinforces negative stereotypes about survivors and/or potential survivors. And Luke, her love interest, is positioned as an unintentional aggressor who simply doesn’t understand that what he is doing is wrong.”

Vitchers said she’s not a fan of most other products on the market, usually in the form of apps, that claim to offer a way for potential victims to stop attacks. While she agrees that bystander intervention can help create a community emphasis on stopping rape, Vitchers said she’s worried colleges will focus too much on these approaches at the expense of discussing consent.

But Klein hopes the game will help reach people who do not think they’re capable of perpetrating this type of violence, as well as people who might intervene in a situation.

“It’s so easy for people to say, ‘Well, I wouldn’t have gone to that place in the first place,’ and that’s so victim-blaming,” Klein said. “You don’t know what you would do unless you’re actually in that situation. [In this game], you’re confronting what you actually might do in that situation.”

Judy Blume Says She Regrets Joining Glee Club That Excluded Black Students

NEW YORK (AP) — Judy Blume, whose novels helped millions of young people get through childhood, has some regrets about her own youth.

The 77-year-old writer says she had been in an “advanced” high school glee club in New Jersey that excluded blacks.

Blume was interviewed on stage Sunday by fellow author Jennifer Weiner at BookCon, the fan-based gathering held at the Jacob K. Javits Center in New York.

Blume says she apologized to classmates at a 40th anniversary reunion and remembers saying, “I felt guilty for all these years” about not speaking out.

Blume says she had mentioned the glee club while writing her new novel, “In The Unlikely Event,” inspired by three plane crashes in her native Elizabeth, New Jersey, in 1951-52, but removed the material because it didn’t fit the narrative.

Abercrombie & Fitch’s New Ideal Customers: Grad Students

Abercrombie & Fitch has been on a roller coaster of late, working to find its footing in a retail landscape that’s rapidly shifting and with a teen audience that’s getting much more fickle (they care a lot more about keeping up with the latest tech trends than splurging on clothes). The brand has done the design switches, like allowing black on its shelves for the first time, and the corporate shakeup, removing Mike Jeffries from the CEO role. The latest round of strategic moves? Rethinking who the brand is trying to reach.

abercrombie-fitch-models-2015

“The Abercrombie brand can travel a bit up the age scale. [It’s] less able to be a true teen brand,” Arthur C. Martinez, chairman of Abercrombie & Fitch Co., told WWD, explaining that the ideal customers are college and graduate students, though “not to the mid-30s necessarily.”

“We are creating a new positioning and new imagery to target the customer,” he said, noting changes would be fully apparent in the fall. A tour through the offerings on its website already show clothing noticeably different than what you might remember from high school. The jeans and cutoffs are widely the same, but shirts feel as if they’re paying closer attention to trends that came down the runway (Martinez reported that bottoms have consistently performed well, while “fashion tops” is the sector that struggles).

abercrombie-halter-crop-top

This halter crop top, paired with high-waisted trousers, is the sort of chic outfit you’d spot on a street-style star roaming fashion week—in other words, the furthest thing from a hugely logoed baby tee.

Oh, and regarding those logos: They’re coming back. Kind of.

“The logo will be subtle and less visible. It won’t be splashed across the chest,” Martinez said, telling WWD that the company “overreacted” with its earlier decisions to move away from the look. “Logo product has an important place across the company.”

Korean American Artist Nam June Paik Inspires Elementary School Students

They filed in, one by one, a long line of fourth- and fifth-grade students, quiet and well-behaved until they crossed the threshold of the Asia Society gallery. And then, one by one, they gasped, cried out, and– in the case of one young boy– jumped and nearly fell on landing. “Oh, man!” said one of the students. “Check out my robot!”

A months-long project culminated May 19 when children from four New York City public schools saw their own work on the walls and the gallery floors of a major cultural institution. Each fall, Asia Society invites students and teachers to a major exhibition at the museum, then works in partnership with Studio in a School to help the students craft their own art inspired by the show. This year marked the 22nd year of the program, and the original exhibition featured the work of technology-obsessed contemporary Korean American artist Nam June Paik, whose work with robots and televisions starting in the 1960s and 1970s presaged many social and technological advances of the 21st century. The students from P.S. 297 in Brooklyn, P.S. 75 in Manhattan, and P.S. 87 and P.S. 182 in the Bronx used materials and concepts that the late Korean American artist would have recognized to create robotic suit jackets; a “pet” made from the chassis of a vacuum cleaner; a tree showing the evolution of the telephone; and other imaginative works.

“I’m famous,” said one young boy as adults snapped photos of him and the robot he had helped design.

Among those on hand for the opening was Agnes Gund, President Emerita of the Museum of Modern Art (MOMA), long-time arts patron and founder and chair of Studio in a School. In the Asia Society auditorium prior to the gallery tour, Gund congratulated “these brilliant young artists” for their creativity and skill. She praised the “thoughtful collaboration” among Studio in a School, the schools’ teachers and principals, and Asia Society, and gave special thanks to Nancy Blume, head of arts education at Asia Society.

Gund singled out the piece Baby from the series Robot Family Sculptures, the creation of five boys from P.S. 75 in Manhattan. The piece was built with, among other materials, a basketball for a body, a videocamera lens hood for its mouth and energy-efficient light bulbs for hands.

“I think it’s a terrific work of art,” Gund said, “and I happen to have an interest in basketball.” She explained, to laughter from the students, that she was a fan of the Cleveland Cavaliers and had watched their win over the Atlanta Hawks the previous night.

“We fought a lot about how to make it great,” said Isaac, one of the students who designed Baby. “I think Mr. Nam June Paik would have liked it.”

Just a few feet away from Baby lay Dog, also part of the Robot Family Sculptures series and a creation of Chloe and Stephanie from P.S. 75 in Manhattan. This piece, it turns out, had been inspired by something missing from Asia Society’s Nam June Paik show.

“There were robot moms and dads but no pets, no animals,” Chloe said. “So this is kind of based on his art, but kind of our own idea, too.”

The students’ art will be on display at Asia Society Museum until July 19 in an exhibition titled Inspired by Nam June Paik: Becoming Robot. The show and this partnership with Studio in a School is one of the coolest things we do, and just as much a part of our mission as the visits of Asian leaders to our stage. The idea behind both is the same — building bridges of understanding between the people of Asia and the U.S.

“You are the youngest artists to exhibit at the Asia Society Museum,” Peggy Loar, Asia Society’s Interim Museum Director, told the children. “And this is a museum where some of the artists were born three thousand years ago.” Loar spoke of the power of a young person’s creativity and working as a team. Before the children left, she invited them to return with their families and receive free admission to see the exhibition and share their accomplishments with their loved ones. “Just come in,” she said, “and say you are one of the artists featured in Inspired by Nam June Paik.”

Kanye West Gave The Most Kanye West Graduation Speech Ever To Fashion Students

Here’s a message to all the celebs currently giving graduation speeches: he’s gonna let you finish, but Kanye West just gave one of the best graduation speeches of all time. Well, he gave the most Kanye West graduation speech, anyway.

West made an appearance at the Los Angeles Trade-Technical College’s Gold Thimble Fashion Show on Friday and reportedly addressed the graduating class, saying, “Usually, when you’re the absolute best, you get hated on the most.” Preach, Kanye!

After an issue with the paparazzi in 2013, West was sentenced to some community service and fulfilled his hours by teaching at the school in 2014. Though all his hours are up, he still decided to make the trip for the show, giving a speech and even smiling.

Yeah, we saw that, Mr. West.

Robert De Niro Tells Graduating Art Students: ‘You’re F***ed’

“You made it,” actor Robert De Niro told New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts graduates on Friday. “And you’re f***ed.”

The reality check to aspiring actors, dancers and others with creative degrees in the opening lines of De Niro’s commencement speech received an uproarious applause.

“The graduates in accounting? They all have jobs,” the legendary actor continued. “Where does that leave you? Envious of those accountants? I doubt it. They had a choice. Maybe they were passionate about accounting but I think it’s more likely that they used reason and logic and common sense to reach for a career that could give them the expectation of success and stability. Reason, logic, common sense at the Tisch School of Arts? Are you kidding me? But you didn’t have that choice, did you? You discovered a talent, developed an ambition and recognized your passion.”

That aversion to practical thinking, he told students, is what will make them successful.

“When it comes to the arts, passion should always trump common sense,” De Niro told the new alums. “You aren’t just following dreams, you’re reaching for your destiny. You’re a dancer, a singer, a choreographer, a musician, a filmmaker, a writer, a photographer, a director, a producer, an actor, an artist. Yeah, you’re f***ed. The good news is that that’s not a bad place to start.”

De Niro, a two-time Oscar winner, warned students to expect rejection and to not take it personally, like when he jokingly found out he couldn’t play Martin Luther King Jr. in “Selma.”

In the end, he sounded confident that the Tisch graduates will get their big breaks.

“I’m here to hand out my pictures and resumes to the directing and producing graduates.”

Teaching Information Fluency: How to Teach Students to Be Efficient, Ethical, and Critical Information Consumers

Teaching Information Fluency: How to Teach Students to Be Efficient, Ethical, and Critical Information Consumers


Teaching Information Fluency describes the skills and dispositions of information fluency adept searchers. Readers will receive in-depth information on what it takes to locate, evaluate, and ethically use digital information. The book realistically examines the abilities of Internet searchers today in terms of their efficiency and effectiveness in finding online information, evaluating it and using it ethically. Since the majority of people develop these skills on their own, rather than being taught, the strategies they invent may suffice for simple searches, but for more complex tasks, such as those required by academic and professional work, the average person s performance is adequate only about 50% of the time. The book is laid out in five parts: an introduction to the problem and how search engine improvements are not sufficient to be of real help, speculative searching, investigative searching, ethical use and applications of information fluency. The intent of the book is to provide readers ways to improve their performance as consumers of digital information and to help teachers devise useful ways to integrate information fluency instruction into their teaching, since deliberate instruction is needed to develop fluency. Since it is unlikely that dedicated class time will be available for such instruction, the approach taken embeds information fluency activities into classroom instruction in language arts, history and science. Numerous model lessons and resources are woven into the fabric of the text, including think-alouds, individual and group search challenges, discussions, assessments and curation, all targeted to Common Core State Standards as well as information fluency competencies.

Bowl Haircuts For Bowl Tickets Offer: Florida State And Auburn Students Make The Cut (VIDEO)

Bad haircut for a great game? No problem.

Dozens of Florida State and Auburn students took up ESPN’s “Bowl Haircuts For Bowl Tickets” offer for a chance at two free tickets for the schools’ BCS National Championship clash Jan. 6. The styles the students received ranged from the standard bowl cut to a more extreme “Friar Tuck.”

“So much for the job interview,” one participant snickered in the video above.

In the end just three won the tickets in a contest whose rules were admittedly “sketchy,” ESPN host Kenny Mayne said. The losers had to be happy putting aesthetic stresses on their tresses for the sheer fun of it.

Algebra for College Students

Algebra for College Students


Kaufmann and Schwitters have built this text’s reputation on clear and concise exposition, numerous examples, and plentiful problem sets. This traditional text consistently reinforces the following common thread: learn a skill; practice the skill to help solve equations; and then apply what you have learned to solve application problems. This simple, straightforward approach has helped many students grasp and apply fundamental problem solving skills necessary for future mathematics courses. Algebraic ideas are developed in a logical sequence, and in an easy-to-read manner, without excessive vocabulary and formalism. The open and uncluttered design helps keep students focused on the concepts while minimizing distractions. Problems and examples reference a broad range of topics, as well as career areas such as electronics, mechanics, and health, showing students that mathematics is part of everyday life. The text’s resource package–anchored by Enhanced WebAssign, an online homework management tool–saves instructors time while also providing additional help and skill-building practice for students outside of class.
