The Mexican culture is steeped in rich tradition and ceremony and offers its people a sense of community and belonging.  The music, food and holidays are unique and distinctive and give the country its long history.  Therefore, it is no surprise that Disney and Pixar teamed up to create a magical animated tale encompassing these factors. ...

Winston Churchill was a magnificent orator.  He would move people to action simply with his words.  Many also consider him to be one of the greatest Brits of all time. He led England through Hitler and the volatile times of World War II.  He was also known for drinking too much and being more than a bit eccentric and he could be mean... Read More

Homelessness in the United States has reached staggering proportions and shattered our normal perception of what a homeless person looks like.  So often we automatically think of the bum on the street laying on a cardboard bed, the woman dressed in layers pushing around a shopping cart of old bags or blankets or the person at the street corner...

We have all heard the saying "kids can be cruel".  This is especially true for middle school-aged children.  They make fun of any little difference anyone displays and bully each other relentlessly.  So imagine being a nine-year-old boy with facial deformities who was previously homeschooled stepping out into the world of m...

What started out as Twilight fan fiction has become an international phenomenon that has taken on a life of its own.  In 2011, E.L.

He was just a little boy and his bear living in the countryside of England. Who knew the stories of his moments at play would eventually become the most beloved book of all time. Not only did they bring a country, and the world, back from the depressing post wartime but also they have endured for almost 100 years. Unfortunately, for the real Christ... Read More

For the last 30 years, Global Warming and climate change have been discussed and debated.  Nowadays, they are at the forefront of almost any political conversation.  But what if we could resolve all of that?  What if we could launch satellites into the atmosphere that could control and alter weather patterns making our current climat...
