HDStudents at Stoneman Douglas Must Use Clear Backpacks Under New Policy
2018-03-23 0 views
High school students in Parkland have to wear clear backpacks now. The new rule is part of increased security measures at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School — the site of the February 14 shooting that killed 17 people.
In a note to families, the school said that any student who does not have a clear backpack will be given one for free. The school is also considering installing metal detectors and it will use gates to control the flow of people in and out.
The shooter’s brother was recently caught trespassing on school property and two students were arrested for bringing knives to school. Students took to social media to share their thoughts on the policy.
@Lizziemcnichol tweeted, “I know having clear backpacks will help with security, but now all my privacy will be gone. I wish it didn’t come to this. #StonemanDouglas #DouglasStrong #MSDStrong #MarchForOurLives #GreatMillsHighSchool #NeverAgain.”
@lauren_hoggs tweeted, “Great. Because clear backpacks are gonna fix everything. I appreciate the attempt, but I’d rather have common since gun laws than a clear backpack. #NeverAgain #EnoughEnough.”
@Car_nove tweeted, “Clear backpacks don’t do anything except make us look stupid. We want to be safe, not uncomfortable. The only thing that can really have an impact on our safety is gun control.”

What did we just witness? This spectacular moment was captured when a Buckeye Donkey Basketball game was hosted at Clinton Prairie High School in Frankfort, Indiana.
Donkey ball is like a regular basketball, except on donkeys. Players have to be mounted to shoot or pass. Of course, the donkeys don't always cooperate.
The Clinton Prairie event took place on Oct. 26, 2016, according to a notice on the school's website. The video was posted by on Twitter by Tatum Neal on Oct. 27, 2016.

You probably wouldn't want to try this yourself. This stunt was pulled off by Min Woo Lee, 19, of Perth, Australia. He posted the clip on his Instagram on Thursday, March 15.
Lee, however, wasn't just betting on pure luck to not injure his fellow, Zach Capelli. Lee is actually 12th best amateur golfer in the world, according to the World Amateur Golf Ranking as of March 17.
The Royal Fremantle Golf Club member has some impressive results under his belt, including winning the title of 2016 US Junior Amateur Champion, and reaching quarter finals of the 2018 World Super 6 Perth, a PGA Tour-sponsored professional tournament.
"This is scarier than it looks, not for me.. for @zacapelli," Lee commented his stunt on Instagram.

2018-03-15 0 views
Ball stuck in a tree? Apparently that's not a problem for Sergio Garcia, one of the top golfers in the world. In one of the most audacious recovery in golf history, Garcia decided to climb the oak tree and hit out of it in the final round of the 2013 Arnold Palmer Invitational at Bay Hill Club & Lodge in Orlando, Florida.
The crowd roared when Garcia had the club handed to him, indicating he actually wanted to play the ball—backwards and one-handed no less. He took his time to pick a position and made the crowd go wild with his successfully hitting the ball.
Unfortunately, Garcia injured his shoulder in the process and withdrew from the tournament, National Club Golfer reported.

HDIkea's Fast Food of the Future is Surprising
2018-03-14 0 views
Fast food of the future might be made from bugs. IKEA is developing food made from alternative ingredients like algae, bugs and lab-grown meat to prepare for how we might eat in the future.
The “Dogless Hot Dog’s” bun is made from a type of algae called spirulina, which contains even more beta carotene than carrots, more chlorophyll than wheatgrass and 50 times more iron than spinach. The hot dog itself has no meat and it made from vegetables instead.
“The Big Burger” is make out of mealworms instead of beef (along with beetroot, parsnip and potatoes) to get people to think about eating meat less and try out alternative proteins.
“The Neatball” is a different take on IKEA’s iconic meatballs. It comes in two versions: one made with mealworms and the other from root vegetables like carrot, parsnips and beets. Other products include salad that might be grown in-store, and ice cream made from microgreens. These products are still being tested be IKEA’s lab, so it’s not available on the menu just yet. But it shows the kind of food we could be eating one day. IKEA is best known for furniture but 30% of its customers come to the stores just for the food.
HDThis Woman Created the First Natural Dog Food
2018-03-13 0 views
Sissy McGill fought to create the first natural dog food in the U.S — at a time when men documented the pet food industry.
The founder of Solid Gold stated, “And they say, ‘Oh are you the delegate for Mr. McGill?’ I said ‘No, I’m Mrs. McGill.’ Silence. ‘We don’t do business with women.’ Clunk.”
McGill started Solid Gold in 1974. It was the first all-natural dog food ever made in the U.S. She even fought the FDA in court to sell her products and spent 6 months in jail. But that didn’t stop her.
Her Great Danes inspired her to create the natural pet food — they were her babies. Two of them died of bloat 9where the stomach expands and twists, making it hard to breath). So, she began to analyze German dog food to figure out what was different. Their food didn’t contain soy, wheat, or corn, and all their ingredients were natural.
She started making her own with superfoods and started giving out samples at dog shows. The food was a hit and McGill began selling and advertising it internationally. Solid gold continued to grow develop more products like natural vitamin supplements. The Queen of England even brought it for her horses — now that’s a big compliment!

Olympic Bronze medalist Billy Morgan snowboards through Essex, England on Thursday (March 1) with friend and professional skier, Paddy Graham.
The 28-year-old snowboarder, freestyles on handrails and a footbridge as "the Beast from the East" covered the town of Leigh-on-Sea. Morgan was awarded the Bronze medal in the big air event at the 2018 Winter Olympic Games in Pyeongchang. He was the first ever male to win a snowboard medal for Team GB.
Much of Britain and Ireland were blanketed in snow as freezing Siberian weather dubbed "the Beast from the East" disrupted travel plans for thousands. Temperatures fell to minus 12 Celsius (10 degrees Fahrenheit) in some rural areas while Britain's weather service warned of up to 40 cm of snow in higher areas of Scotland.
HDThis Farm Treats Its Mozzarella-Making Buffalo Like Royalty
2018-03-02 0 views
These mozzarella-making water buffalo get pretty great amenities, including on demand massages. The big cuddly beasts are pampered so they produce better cheese, they also listen to music and get milked only when they want to. Below them are rubber mats to make them comfortable and they can use showers and brushes whenever they want.
They live on an Italian dairy farm called Tenuta Vannulo in Capaccio, Italy. The owners want their buffalo to live stress-free and believe that when they’re happy, the milk tastes better — which makes for great mozzarella. This is why their buffalo get spa-like amenities. The space doesn’t sue medicine or fertilizers it believes in homeopathic remedies — meaning the body can cure itself. They also make their own organic food for the 600 buffalo.
Breeding them also happens naturally and they’re milked using robotic milking machines. They also test the quality of milk to make sure it’s ideal. The farm runs the natural milking cycle and only uses its own buffalo milk so there is limited production. They produce a little over 600 lbs or organic mozzarella a day and all the cheese is made by hand. They truly focus on quality over quantity — something that more farms should definitely practice.

Stepback, Euro, Spin, Filayyyy
It’s the latest dance craze And it’s the most interesting way to make a spare.
It is not clear exactly why this young bowler felt that he needed to combine setting up for a jump shot with modern dance with an extended baseball windup before delivered his shot down the lane, but it worked for him.
After his dance routine, he nonchalantly released his shot while apparently not even looking where he was aiming.
He completed his spare and he entertained the crowd.
If he had missed the shot he would have gotten high marks for clowning—but since he knocked down all the pins, he comes off as some sort of athletic genius.
Not sure if this will catch on but if it does ... stand well back when the bowler approaches the line.
Phase two might be having a DJ at each lane. Who knows how far this might go. The next Olympic sport?
HDThe Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders Are Being Inducted Into The Smithsonian
2018-02-28 0 views
The Dallas Cowboys cheerleaders are going into the Smithsonian. The Cowboy’s iconic cheer squad has been a fixture on NFL sidelines since 1960. Now, their famous white and blue uniforms are forever enshrined alongside other iconic pieces of American clothing, like the ruby slippers from “The Wizard of Oz” and Michael Jackson’s hat. Current Cowboys cheerleaders and members of the team’s front office made the trip to D.C. to be present for the ceremony.
One of the cheerleaders stated, “Gorwing up in Dallas the uniform and everything that the Dallas Cowboys cheerleaders were, and are, was such an iconic thing for me, and you know, getting to actually have this uniform on today is a dream come true.”
The Smithsonian’s inclusion of the Cowboys cheerleaders comes at an interesting time. The recent #MeToo movement has led to increasing awareness about sexism and harassment in various industries, including sports. Many have questioned whether cheerleaders even belong in sports anymore. In February 2018, Formula 1 Racing announced they would be ditching “Grid Girls” for upcoming seasons citing “modern day societal norms.”
But, no matter the future of cheerleading in pro sports, this particular squad is not officially a piece of American history.
