A great reminder that our actions and decisions, conscious and unconscious, impact the world around us.
Currently, woman and girls make up the vast majority of persons effected by hunger and poverty in the US.
If we spent less on waste, we could improve the well being of girls and the possibilities for woman by spending more on the effort to reduce Threats to Girlhood.
Research has also begun to show that watching television prior to the age of two significantly reduces the amount of creative independent play that children engage in each day.
Creative play helps foster cognitive abilities and a sense of self; it teaches creative and constructive problem solving, self expression, and emotional intelligence; and contributes to character and skill development.
I agree- the discussion on the measurable impacts of passive media stimulation were fascinating!
I was also impressed to hear that they've put some conscious though into how not to talk down to kids. The MythBusters do a great job of making science cool!
What a fantastic product! The art festival is especially impressive!
The cat actually seemed far more animated than the chicks. I'd be interested in seeing how children incorporated robotic pets into their play.
