Here’s Your Chance to Help Young Children Read

I normally don't put up a job post, but I'll make an exception in this case. You see, it's about kids, young kids, 2nd grade, and reading. Too many children fail to get the encouragement and lessons needed to be successful at reading.

Thanks to a partnership with Amway Corporation, Grand Rapids Public Schools is working with Innovations for Learning to implement TutorMate in the district to improve literacy of students in 2nd grade. TutorMate is the nation’s preeminent online volunteer tutoring program, helping tens of thousands of students in low income communities learn to read.

James Corden’s Carpool Karaoke is a big hit With the First Lady [Video]

This latest edition of Carpool Karaoke with James Corden from the Late Late Show on CBS, has gone super viral.

It seems that Corden's White House tour took an unthinkable turn when First Lady Michelle Obama joined him for a drive around the grounds singing Stevie Wonder and Beyonce. Yes, you're right, just a ride around the White House grounds. You can't take the First Lady out on the streets and just drive around. That's a no-no.
