Temperature’s are going up. Might as well drink your lemonade and iced tea from something cute and DIY!
Purchase a set of glass pitchers and glasses, or use some you already own. And add your own style! Use adhesive circle stickers to create your design along the bottom of the glassware. Arrange them in a straight like or in any design you wish. You can use different shapes and sizes, and can even use a cut-out to create cute designs onto your stickers before applying them to the glass.
Using a foam pouncer, apply your paint over the stickers, moving lightly up the glass to create a faux frosted look. Be sure to keep the paint away from the top of the glass where your mouth goes. While the paint is still wet, carefully peel off the stickers so you can scratch off any paint that seeped through.
Waiting hours for a cellphone to charge may become a thing of the past, thanks to an 18-year-old high-school student’s invention. She won a $50,000 prize Friday at an international science fair for creating an energy storage device that can be fully juiced in 20 to 30 seconds.

When Sandy Patangay left her home country of India to come to the United States, she never dreamed that she’d one day be able to bring something so special from her native culture to eager New York City consumers. After having completed her masters and begun working on Wall Street, she turned her sights away from the corporate world and began to channel her true passion - henna design - into a project that has become incredibly successful in an incredibly small amount of time. Transmuting traditional henna designs onto a whole new medium, Sandy creates beautiful cakes, cookies, and macaroons that have earned critical praise from some of the most renowned culinary experts. Thinking back on her decision to take this step in establishing her own business, she says:
So many times, I asked myself, whether this was a stupid move — walking away from a secure job to sell cakes. But now I can see I didn’t waste a single day. While I loved what I was doing on Wall Street, there’s only so much you can do to climb the corporate ladder. And how many people actually end up being the CEO? But when you follow your passion, the possibilities are endless.

May 17, 1954: The Supreme Court Rules on Brown v. Board of Education
On this day in 1954, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled unanimously that racial segregation in public schools violated the Fourteenth Amendment to the Constitution, which says that no state may deny equal protection of the laws to any person within its jurisdiction.
Although the decision did not succeed in fully desegregating public education in the United States, it put the Constitution on the side of racial equality and galvanized the nascent civil rights movement into a full revolution.

When workers don’t have a voice on the job, they can’t speak up about unsafe working conditions. That’s why states with so-called “right to work” laws have more injuries and fatalities at the workplace.
SHARE, because when politicians propose these laws, we need to hear what they’re really saying.
Slavery was once a right. Now-outdated notions of privacy and property allowed marital rape as a right. But the costs of those rights were the violation of others rights, and we reached a point as a society (through much debate, struggle, blood, sweat, tears, and more) where we decided that protecting rights like slavery and marital rape was no longer worth the damage they inflicted. Alcohol was a right, then it wasn’t, and then it was again because prohibiting drinking caused more trouble than we were able to tolerate. However, when the right returned it did not go unchecked. This is how we negotiate rights in a democracy.
I’ve been seeing “-something- in a jar” home baking tutorials for a while now, and I think this one from Something Turquoise is my favourite. This would make such a nice gift!
I’m scared I’m going to spend the rest of my life in a state of yearning, regardless of where I am.
