The No Ceilings Project, From Chelsea Clinton (VIDEO)

The No Ceilings Project, From Chelsea Clinton (VIDEO) | What's Happening?! | Scoop.it
“There are countries that are economically, politically or socially not where we should be,” she said, adding that she thinks girls are still excluded from many important arenas worldwide.
Lexi Chase's insight:

This was really interesting to watch and it's something that I think people see a an issue of the past and not the present. Chelsea Clinton  is involved in a project campaign for women's rights. They are gathering date from the past 20 years of the roles of women financially, socially, culturally, politically, in the business world, etc. They are trying to find the gaps in women's roles in these aspects and  give the women power to feel confident and fight for there roles in these aspects. As much as we think women are 100% equals in opportunities there are still gaps. And improvements in these gaps will be filled by comparing the data of women's roles in those aspects from the past and present.

Lexi Chase's insight:

Last weekend was the 2014 Academy Awards and Jennifer Lawrence tripped and fell..again. Sooo?? Is this a crazy thing to be reporting?

Do we care, or should we care? People fall ALL the time. She says in this article that she fears people will see her falling as some sort of "gimmick". It seems to be getting out of hand that with todays press, media and the pressure put on by celebrities celebrities can't make a simple human mistake without it being blasted on front pages. They are regular people with very unique jobs. We all should stop thinking that theres a underlying story or scandal about everything that ever happens to any celebrity. This is just another example on media affects or our current society.

Yahoo webcam images from millions of users intercepted by GCHQ - The Guardian

Yahoo webcam images from millions of users intercepted by GCHQ - The Guardian | What's Happening?! | Scoop.it
The Guardian Yahoo webcam images from millions of users intercepted by GCHQ The Guardian "This report, if true, represents a whole new level of violation of our users' privacy that is completely unacceptable, and we strongly call on the world's...
Lexi Chase's insight:

Yahoo webcams have recently  been reported on capturing and storing images of peoples chats without users being aware. This is beginning to take in the styles of "big brother". Millions of people and kids of all ages use the internet but we don't really know how secure things are. So how is this possible?  What really involved web cams and chats? Is there anyway to have privacy on these types of things at all? Its important to be careful of things you put online, even if its not "posted" in any sort. I never thought that these things were really possible to be seen if they are not put up or uploaded anywhere. I will definitely be more careful from now on. You just never know.

The Michael J. Fox Show - Inside TV - Entertainment Weekly

The Michael J. Fox Show - Inside TV - Entertainment Weekly | What's Happening?! | Scoop.it
UPDATE: Michael J. Fox's TV hot streak seems to have ended: The Michael J. Fox Show has been pulled from the NBC schedule and replaced on Thursday night by Hollywood Game Night, EW confirmed Wednesday night.
Lexi Chase's insight:

I found this article about the MIchael J Fox show and I was surprised by the title.  A friend I went to high school with is actually the actress that plays the daughter, Eve,  in this show. We talked briefly and it turns out the show is not yet cancelled. They are simply moving time slots. Now there is no telling what the future holds but as of now, this headline is a false rumor. This is just one of the many examples of how the media reports false information and takes rumors too far. Imagine how the celebrities feel when they see so many false accusations about them.

Missing Malaysia Airlines latest: Passengers or crew 'hijacked' plane?

Missing Malaysia Airlines latest: Passengers or crew 'hijacked' plane? | What's Happening?! | Scoop.it
2 new search corridors - Indian ocean and now towards Kazakhstan

Via InfoBlaze
Lexi Chase's insight:

The missing malaysia plane has still not been found and neither have any of the passengers. It is now known that the communication was turned off from the plane and most likely by someone who knows about aircrafts. As the search is still going on my heart goes out to the families and passengers of the flight.  Although airport security has dramatically increased since 9/11. People are still able to do things like this and it's a terrifying thought. It's important to be aware of things that happen such as this because you just never know what's really going on around you. It's always good to be as prepared as possible. Hope is still there and prayers from all over are with this story. For person/people who did this, hopefully they will get the justice they deserve.

Christian World News: February 28, 2014

This week on Christian World News: Revolution in Ukraine. A new government takes over, with an evangelical Christian at the head. Will threats from the East ...
Lexi Chase's insight:

A new president has taken place in Ukraine, temporarily, as the previous president was impeached. The new leader is a evangelical christian and is receiving many threats. Not that he has done anything to upset the people yet. But his religious views have not been accepted by the people in his community. Should a leaders religion be taken seriously by his/her people?  How much does it really affect or change the way they lead their country and people?

Colleges embrace new world of social media - Pittsburgh Post Gazette

Colleges embrace new world of social media - Pittsburgh Post Gazette | What's Happening?! | Scoop.it
Colleges embrace new world of social media
Pittsburgh Post Gazette
An array of big screen TVs mounted on walls continuously displays messages culled from nearly a dozen Twitter and other social media feeds on campus.
Lexi Chase's insight:

Social media is now a huge part of our everyday lives, especially in college students, so much so that certain universities are making them even more prominent and using them as a form of communication with their students. It may be the only effective way to communicate with them anymore. Looking back on our parents generation and their parents generation things like this were unheard of. They actually had to communicate with others and not a screen. Our social skills could be diminishing and where is that going to leave us in the future?  Even looking around today most people who are alone are looking at their phones, perhaps not even doing anything on their phone but they just don't know how to act alone in a social environment anymore.
