Friday July 18 2014 #Tabascofiles

Here’s what I shared today on #Tabascofiles:

Dad REALLY knows how to make fixing his daughters hair something easy and FUN and awesome!  And it’s going viral!  On Todays #orangeroom

And from our Interprep partners and it also mentioned on today’s show, A principal in UK’s letter to her students saying you are more than your test score!  Here’s a copy of it:

“Please find enclosed your end of KS2 test results. We are very proud of you as you demonstrated huge amounts of commitment and tried your very best during this tricky week.

However, we are concerned that these tests do not always assess all of what it is that make each of you special and unique. The people who create these tests and score them do not know each of you—the way your teachers do, the way I hope to, and certainly not the way your families do. They do not know that many of you speak two languages. They do not know that you can play a musical instrument or that you can dance or paint a picture. They do not know that your friends count on you to be there for them or that your laughter can brighten the dreariest day. They do not know that your write poetry or songs, play or participate in sports, wonder about the future, or that sometimes you take care of your little brother or sister after school. They do not know that you have traveled to a really neat place or that you know how to tell a great story or that you really love spending time with special family members and friends. They do not know that you can be trustworthy, kind or thoughtful, and that you try, every day, to be your very best… the scores you get will tell you something, but they will not tell you everything.

So enjoy your results and be very proud of these but remember there are many ways of being smart.”

#tabascofiles has the latest Fallon trending video and this has to be one of the funniest yet!  Whoopi Goldberg and Jimmy Fallon do the “Lip Flip” !  Check it out here:

What exactly IS Net Neutrality and WHY it DOES matter!  Here’s the deal, if you’re like me, you hear the phrase “Net Neutrality” and your eyes glaze over thinking it’s some “techie” term that is as hard to understand as the Healthcare Act!  Well, I found a video that explains it pretty well, and I gotta say, after seeing it, I’m a bit worried about how this is going to go down!  We just might be the ones that have to pay BIG if Net Neutrality is compromised by big Internet Service Providers that might just want to charge you big!  Here’s the best video explanation I found very helpful, thanks to Mashable.com for FINALLY explaining in this chicks “layman’s” terms!
