Hey parents, summer has officially landed! And if your kids are already at home wailing "I'm borrred!" and you're scrambling to find something to keep them amused, take them to the mall.
No, seriously. Head to your nearest Apple store, where kids between 8-12 can take part in workshops for iMovie and iBooks apps.
At Apple Camp, kids will learn to make movies with their own storyboards and original soundtracks. They can also make their own interactive books, full of their own illustrations and sound effects.
This year, in the book sessions, campers will use Pencil by FiftyThree to complement the Paper by FiftyThree app from last year.
Best of all, the camp is absolutely free and requires zero packing. And creative-minded parents get to hang around and pick up a few fun tricks of their own.
For more information and to sign up your Apple campers, visit Apple's website. The fun - and learning - starts 20 July.
Wow, I’m not really sure what to say here," he responded on his Facebook page. "I would say this disappoints me, but I actually find this to be a good thing because our company now would not like to work with you as well.
It’s not that because you have a different view from us, but it’s because since you don’t like an support gay marriage, no one else should be able to have it. That’s like me not liking broccoli, and demanding that everyone else in the world should not have broccoli either! If you’re not in favor of gay marriage that’s fine, don’t marry a woman. Personally, I was taught not to judge others and to love everyone else. So I will try not to judge you here and say anything more as to my opinion of you.
At Brentwood Photography we see love in all forms. Now as far as your retainer goes, I hope you’ll read the first article in the contract you signed stating that this retainer is nonrefundable. But don’t you worry, I’m not going to keep it! Because of this conversation, I have decided to donate your $1,500 to GLAD [sic] [the Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation], a group created to help and support gay rights.
So let me be the first to say [redacted], thank you very much for your donation and support for this great cause! I couldn’t have done it without your money.
Sincerely and with Love,
Trends come and trends go, but why in the world are women painting exactly half of their faces in makeup then posting selfies online?
It started with beauty vlogger Nikkie's viral video (below), in which she proudly denounces "makeup shaming." Her seven-minute clip was watched more than 17 MILLION times - and endlessly discussed via the #thepowerofmakeup hashtag - proving that women are deeply attached to the fun of using make-up.
And Nikkie's message is one that women have since taken to heart, driving many to put on their best - or half of their best, as it were - faces forward on social media.
Wearing makeup isn't, in their words, misleading or false advertising. It isn't about wanting to hide or be something you are not.
Personally, I'm not a heavy makeup wearer, but that's primarily because a) I'm lazy and b) utterly clueless when it comes to achieving the kind of artistry these fine ladies have mastered. My split profile would look amateurish at best, clownish at worst.
Of course everyone has their comfort levels and personal taste when it comes to the quantity and the palette.
While it may sound obvious, user afifa_'s comment is on point: "It's ok if you love wearing makeup. It's also ok if you don't like makeup. You do you. You don't have to force anyone to do or like something they don't want to."
