Some nice games for older students. Beware of advertising though.

Rio Harvey's curator insight, April 8, 2014 7:09 AM

Use this activity to learn the basic human anatomy. There are different activities including Poke-a-muscle and muscle crosswords to help you learn the different muscle groups. Once you have done these activities I want you to answer the following questions:

1. What role does the muscular system play in Health and Physical Education?

2. What are the major muscle groups used in Rugby League?

How do we keep ourselves motivated when we don't seem to be getting anywhere? When behaviour and attitudes aren't changing? How do we stop ourselves from not really trying anymore, giving up, declaring defeat in our minds and just going through the motions of an intervention? Why should we keep on trying, is there any point? Are there just some who will always be beyond our reach?

Ellen Page has come out as a gay woman.

our editor recommends

The star of the upcoming X-Men: Days of Future Past made the announcement in a moving and deeply personal speech delivered at Time to Thrive, a conference to promote the welfare of LGBT youth held at Bally's Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, Nev.

 

STORY: Hollywood Reacts to Ellen Page's Coming Out Speech

 

"I'm here today because I am gay," Page, 26, told the audience, "and because maybe I can make a difference, to help others have an easier and more hopeful time. Regardless, for me, I feel a personal obligation and a social responsibility.

 

"I am tired of hiding and I am tired of lying by omission," Page proudly and defiantly declared. "I suffered for years because I was scared to be out. My spirit suffered, my mental health suffered and my relationships suffered. And I'm standing here today, with all of you, on the other side of all that pain."

 

Page first shared the inner turmoil she's felt since she was thrust into the Hollywood limelight following the blockbuster success of 2007's Juno.

"It's weird because here I am, an actress, representing -- at least in some sense -- an industry that places crushing standards on all of us," Page said. "Not just young people, but everyone. Standards of beauty, of a good life, of success -- standards that, I hate to admit, have affected me.

 

 

"You have ideas planted in your head, thoughts you never had before that tell you how you have to act, how you have to dress and who you have to be. I have been trying to push back, to be authentic, to follow my heart, but it can be hard," she admitted.

 

Page, who paused frequently to collect herself as her emotions swelled, added that reading about herself in the tabloids can be a trying ordeal. She mentioned one article, accompanied by a paparazzi photo of her wearing sweatpants on the way to the gym, that asked, "Why does this petite beauty insist upon dressing like a massive man?" (The answer: "Because I like to be comfortable," a line that drew laughter and applause.)

 

That kind of gender stereotyping serves "no one," Page said. She then went on to single out examples of "courage all around us," naming "football hero Michael Sam," Orange Is the New Black star Laverne Cox and musicians Tegan and Sara Quin for their contributions to furthering LGBT visibility and pride.

 

A tearful Page concluded her eight-minute speech by wishing the audience a happy Valentine's Day, sweetly adding, "I love you." The remarks were met with a rousing standing ovation.

 

Born and raised in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Page worked in Canadian television before making her first stateside splash in 2005 revenge-thriller Hard Candy. She then played Kitty Pryde, aka Shadowcat, in 2006's X-Men: The Last Stand. But it was her breakout performance as the pregnant teen title character of Juno that catapulted her to international superstardom.

 

Next, Page will appear in indie drama Freeheld, starring opposite Julianne Moore as a gay couple whose pension benefits are frozen after one is diagnosed with a terminal disease. The fact-based film, a passion project for Page, also stars Zach Galifianakis.

 

Time to THRIVE organizer Human Rights Campaign posted the news to Twitter and Facebook shortly after Page made her remarks, which they later posted in full to their Tumblr.

 

A representative for Page tells THR that the actress is not currently submitting to media interviews. Page did post several short statements to Twitter, however, thanking HRC and "everyone for all the love and support" in one. In another, she replied to a request from House of Cards star Kate Mara to "be my Valentine."  "Yes please," Page wrote.

The World's Most Densely Populated Cities

The World's Most Densely Populated Cities | Interesting Reading to learn English -intermediate - advanced (B1, B2, C1,) | Scoop.it
The growth of these cities will create a host of environmental and health problems.

 

By 2210, the global population is expected to grow from just more than 7 billion to 11.3 billion — with 87 percent of the population living in urban areas, according to a new working paper by researchers from NYU’s Marron Institute.

Most of these individuals will be in what’s now the developing world — creating a host of environmental and health problems.

If projections are correct, these new urban dwellers will require the world’s existing cities to expand six-fold to accommodate triple the residents, Richard Florida wrote in The Atlantic. Plus, the world will need 500 new “megacities” of 10 million or more, he wrote.

Artemsia Gentileschi ‘David and Bathsheba’, 1650-c. 1652

 

"Throughout the centuries women have had to work tremendously hard to make their voice heard, especially in renaissance Florence where most women’s destinies lied in childbirth and taking care of the home. Their voices rarely heard nor seen which is why this subject fascinates me as a very independent girl living in their same city, free to roam as I please. What we know less about are the amazing stories of those girls, who against the odds, didn’t follow the normal life-path and instead carved out a destiny of their own. In this case, I am talking about women artists that made their mark in Florence, Italy hundreds of years ago but who’s presence is still struggling to be remembered today."

In 1972, the Ms. Foundation for Women produced Free to Be… You and Me, an illustrated book and record album set. Initiated by Marlo Thomas, the mission of the Free to Be… You and Me project was to provide healthy messages refuting and rejecting gender stereotypes while encouraging the positive and empowering post-1960s ideas of gender equality, individuality, comfort with one’s identity, and tolerance. Using her celebrity clout, Marlo Thomas got a number of her celebrity friends to create, write, and perform the modern day lessons to children in song and story form. No doubt the hope was that the parents and other adults in children’s lives were listening — and learning — too.
