Wondering what movie to see this weekend? Look no further than the film about North Korean terrorists invading the White House, Olympus Has Fallen!

What’s that you say? Oh, you’re one of those people who need to hear some reviews first? Not to worry! These fellow movie goers’ tweets are sure to…

Wow…these tweets really happened….

A new study from the Global Strategy Groupshows that corporations who appear to stay out of divisive political issues have better brand favorability. The study finds that Americans have clear reservations about corporations straying too far into political issues — especially cultural war issues.

In the survey, 56 percent of Americans thought it was inappropriate for companies to take a stance on political issues that do not pertain to business while less than one-third of those surveyed believe that companies should stake out positions on gay marriage or abortion. The survey also found that companies that are perceived as strongly partisan have lower brand favorability

Interesting.

“Judgments”I took this last year, but in retrospect, I think it’s my strongest piece from high school.
Working on this project really made me examine my own opinions, preconceptions and prejudices about “slutty” women and women who choose to cover all of their skin alike. I used to assume that all women who wore Hijabs were being oppressed, slut-shame, and look down on and judge any woman who didn’t express her sexuality in a way that I found appropriate.
I’d like to think I’m more open now.

Love this.

It’s a GI’s word most often used for officers, and in particular, officers who are full of themselves. The first military leader to have been called with the A-word — both by his men and his superiors by the way — is George Patton, and that makes perfect sense, particularly if you read the unexpurgated Patton, not the Patton of the movie. … It’s a word that looks up. And the A-word always does. It’s a critique from below, from ground level, of somebody who’s gotten above himself.
