Links to Make You Think

Holy cow…did anyone see this article yesterday?!

One in 10 college GRADUATES believes that Judge Judy is a Supreme Court Justice. What the what?! According to a recent study from the American Council of Trustees and Alumni (ACTA), this is true…which is frightening.

I’m not going to sit here and pretend like I can rattle off all of the Supreme Court Justices, BUT I know Judge Judy certainly isn’t one of them.

In today’s society, most of us are guilty of being caught up in social media and my mom is always on my case about it, but, I feel like, at the very least, I definitely spend a lot of that time reading news articles. The topics vary, but at least it’s news, right?

When I selected today’s articles, I wanted them to be fun and interesting, but I hope you learn something from them, too – if nothing else, at least you know that Judge Judy isn’t a Supreme Court Justice, right? 🙂

One of my favorite blogs, Cupcakes & Cashmere featured a great post yesterday about incorporating greenery in your décor and the benefits it has on your health and environment.

Former NFL wide receiver Randle El was featured in an article (Click on WR) in the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette’s 40X 10XL special section. Forty years ago, the Steelers won Super Bowl X. A decade ago, they took XL. The publication talked to former players who were catalysts in the team’s success and EL discussed his feelings about the long-term physical effects on him and how he’d do things differently.

No food is healthy. This article made me giggle a little as it made valid points about how we view health and nutrition.

Two separate studies are showing that vacations and green space are good for your mental and physical health. After saying, ‘duh,’ I proceeded to read about life as a safari guide. So interesting…take me back to Africa, please. Life. Changing.

These photos are beautiful and offer a performer’s perspective.

Wow… VERY eye opening.

Jillian Harris posted an article about the grim future for our oceans: There Will Be More Plastic Garbage Than Fish in Our Oceans By 2050. This gives me hope.

Lastly, this explains so much about my cheese obsession.

Have a great day!
