  • Sheryl Sandberg Calls for Internet Boost for Women in Developing Countries

    In the U.S., internet access is ubiquitous.

      I know, I know...the subjects of fun summer camp and "funless" income tax preparation don't exactly go together as well as toasted 'mallow and graham.

  • Joss Whedon & Girls in STEM

    One of the greatest figures in film and television is, in my opinion, a man named Joss Whedon.

  • And the award for best word goes to…VOXEL!

    First of all, did any of you know that it was ‘The Academy of Motion Picture Arts AND SCIENCES’?!?!?! I did not… but that may explain my terribly short attention span as well as general lack of knowledge regarding anything pop culture related.
