I'm happy to turn this spot over to her for more insight on a subject that she is passionate about -- turning physical activity into a lifelong habit. *** As busy adults, finding time to exercise can be a chore. How can we go to the gym, or even for a walk around the block, with everything else on our to-do list? Luckily for kids, their days are generally less structured. They also don't need a fitness club membership or a detailed workout regimen. All they have to do is play. They can play ball with their friends during gym class. They can run around the playground during recess. They can ride a bike through their neighborhood or to visit a friend. Maybe they walk or ride to and from school, or to the school bus. The important thing is setting patterns and habits in youth that they will maintain as adults. Think of it this way: Just like we want our children to be lifelong learners, we need them to be lifelong exercisers.

No one wants to be a Millennial, except for a few weird undergrads who write politically correct versions of dictionaries that offer simple alternative wordings for offensive phrases like "poor person" such as "person who lacks advantages that others have, low economic status related to a person's education, occupation and income." This, and a myriad of other reasons, is why Millennial became a dirty word like hipster. When I speak of Millennials, I mostly mean what the media portrays them as, Middle to Upper Class students and graduates of somewhat to highly prestigious universities and colleges. This infectious species that polices the appropriateness of Halloween costumes and takes off weeks from school to cope with the election of a person who doesn't share their values in "safe spaces" chockfull of art and dog therapy. Millennials are ill-equipped for the challenges of adult life.

21,146 comments have been left on the Kickstarter since the crowdfunding campaign launched, and the most recent entries are a sea of complaints: Angry backers have launched a petition for Kickstarter to issue refunds alongside a Facebook group to rally support around a potential class action lawsuit . The product does seem to exist, however, as one backer discovered when he cut out the middleman and purchased directly through the new look shop. The video he created shows a product which seems considerably weaker than the Magsafe, and which is extremely fussy about how it’s attached: Video of Review of ZNAPS magnetic adapter for iPhone In one final interesting twist, one Reddit user said that he had received an email from Znaps saying his order had been lost in an administrative mix-up . He was promised a refund (not received at the time of his account) and the chance to reorder the connector with a 20% discount.

This week, international charity Oxfam released a statement alleging that the world's eight richest men - including Microsoft's Bill Gates and Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg - control as much wealth as half the global population combined. Widespread anger over the growing gap between rich and poor led to the rise of populism in the world's largest economy - the United States. With new president Donal Trump sworn into office for the next four years, expectations look to him to restore the 'American dream' as he promised throughout his campaign. But will the new US President actually make a difference to the livelihoods of the working class he has promised so much to or do we, as private citizens, have more power than we think to change things? The World Economic Forum's annual summit in Davos, Switzerland puts inequality high up on its discussion agenda for this year.

And we've seen in midterm elections, we've seen in gubernatorial elections since 2008, the emergence of a class of political leadership that insists at the state level of creating a new class of pro-white warriors. (RALLY, ARIZONA 7/11/15): [ Crowd chanting: USA! USA!] TRUMP: Don't worry -- we'll take our country back very soon, very soon. LEBRON: So, what I think has happened with Trump and his ability to hold onto this lie -- I think he got invested in it because there is a cohort of Americans that were going to easily go along with him. One thing I think Trump is actually very good at doing is, he's a very good psychologist. And I think Trump saw that there are certain keynote themes that if you hit on them, you can rally the people, which is what makes him sometimes dangerous, where if you look at old -- I have to say, if you look at old Hitler tapes, for example, the ability to kind of rile the people up around topics about which they feel threatened, and the biggest threat for a lot of people is this black man who from their point of view is taking their country away from them.

Elizabeth White has been on the edge of the financial cliff for years, but you'd never know it from outside appearances. "Everybody is pretending," she says. In her self-published book "Fifty-Five, Unemployed, and Faking Normal" she painfully chronicles the crash of a flourishing career and upper-middle class lifestyle -- and she's not alone. Economics correspondent Paul Solman reports.

Around 150 people gathered outside the old Coronet building in London's Notting Hill, Thursday, to protest against the casting of four Caucasian actors in the roles of four East Asian characters in The Print Room's production of Howard Barker's 'In The Depths of Deep Love.' SOT, Mei Mac, actor (English): "For a cast of entirely Caucasian actors to tell a story that is set in China , that is yellowfacing, you’re putting yourself in the shoes of someone that ought to have been east Asian and that is yellowfacing 100%." SOT, Louise Mai Newbury (English): "The play is going on, the play is going on, in one sense they have got away with it and that’s what’s really awful, that in this day and age, it’s 2017 that they can do this and think it’s alright." SOT, Daniel York (English): "It has been a thing in Britain I think, that theatre is kind of the preserve of a certain kind of middle class, privileged white Caucasian elite and they’ve tended to kind of dominate theatre a bit and I’m not too sure some of them want to give up that privilege too easily, this is what it’s about.

Monday's much anticipated announcement by Ford South Africa resulted in the issuing of a voluntary safety recall for all Kuga's 1.6 Litre vehicles. The recall is limited to 1.6 Litre Kugas manufactured between December 2012 and February 2014. Other Kugas including the 1.5 Litres and 2 Litres are not affected. The decision by Ford SA has been received with mixed feelings by Kuga owners in general, and the Jimmy family in particular. Their member Reshall passed on in December 2015 after his Ford Kuga caugth fire. The family says it is prepared to expose Ford SA for hiding the truth, and have also threatened to bring a class-action suit against the manufacturer. But where to from here for the owners of the 48 Ford Kugas which have caught alight so far? For more news, visit: http://www.sabc.co.za/news

Trump’s pick for education secretary Betsy DeVos wants her and her billionaire friends to be able to set up more cheap, substandard, charter schools all over the country. These schools rake in federal dollars yet arent held to any standards. The substandard parts are where the owner class saves (pockets) the money.

Tell us what you think in the comment section below. http://tytnetwork.com/go "Donald Trump’s nominee for education secretary appeared stumped by senators when they asked her about a federal education law related to discrimination during her confirmation hearing Tuesday night.
