The ridiculous viral video "The Fox" is set to become a children's book, available for Christmas.
"We felt that the idea 'What does the fox say?' was a good idea for a children's book, no matter what we turned it into as a video," Bard Ylvisake, one of the two brothers in the Norwegian comedy duo Ylvis, told EuroNews. The book, titled What Does the Fox Say?, is set to release on Dec. 10.
This is the second in a three-part series entitled, "Kennedy and Me." Part one can be read here.
A new normalcy shattered
After the campaign and inauguration, I went back to being a kid. I didn't follow politics closely, though there was always talk at the dinner table about Kennedy's actions on this and that. I did notice that mom and her sisters and friends got new hairdos. They were dead ringers for Jackie Kennedy's "do." My mother was a strikingly beautiful brunette, and everyone agreed she had some of Jackie's features, which were highlighted all the more by her imitation of Jackie's French bouffant. Millions of women followed the styles set by the new first lady. That certainly hadn't happened under Eleanor Roosevelt, Bess Truman or Mamie Eisenhower. more >>
Fifty years ago today three great men died. In life, though all achieved literary and international acclaim, they could not have been more different. In death, the one overshadowed the two-as the death of Princess Diana overshadowed the death of Mother Teresa. But as was true of the princess and the prioress, so was true of the president and the professor-the memory of the least celebrated on earth often lingers longer in eternity.
The death of John F. Kennedy sent shock waves around the world, while the death of Clive Staples Lewis barely caused a ripple. It could not be otherwise. The assassination of an American president will always takes precedent over the natural death of a British professor. But for all his significance, the legacy of Kennedy merely reverberates in time; the legacy of Lewis reverberates in eternity.
This is true because each man viewed humanity by different lights-Kennedy from the perspective of humanity, Lewis from the perspective of divinity. more >>
It is reported that only 30 people attended the funeral of legendary author C.S. Lewis. His death occurred on the same day President John F. Kennedy was assassinated 50 years ago today, Nov. 22, 1963. The media, including in Britain, flooded the news with coverage of the U.S. president's death and that meant that Lewis' passing was not announced until after his funeral, according to Mike Stranks of the C.S. Lewis Jubilee Festival committee in Britain.
Clive Staples Lewis was one of the intellectual giants of the twentieth century and arguably one of the most influential writers of his day, the authors of a website dedicated to Lewis state. He was a Fellow and Tutor in English Literature at Oxford University until 1954, when he was unanimously elected to the Chair of Medieval and Renaissance Literature at Cambridge University, a position he held until his retirement.
Lewis wrote more than 30 books, allowing him to reach a vast audience, and his works continue to attract thousands of new readers every year. C. S. Lewis's most distinguished and popular accomplishments include Mere Christianity, Out of the Silent Planet, The Great Divorce, The Screwtape Letters, and the universally acknowledged classics in The Chronicles of Narnia. To date, the Narnia books have sold over 100 million copies, according to CSLewis.com, and have been adapted into three major motion pictures. more >>
The head of a major Christian retailer presently suing the federal government has proposed a Bible class elective for an Oklahoma high school.
Steve Green, president of the Oklahoma-based retail giant Hobby Lobby Inc., has proposed a class for Mustang High School with a curriculum focused on various aspects of the Holy Bible.
"There's still some fine-tuning, but the curriculum breakdown would include an intro course covering the Old and New Testaments and the Bible's impact on society. Three advanced courses would focus on deeper history and cultural influence," reported KOCO 5 News. more >>
Creation Museum President Ken Ham has responded to a CNN article chronicling the life of billionaire businessman Ted Turner, declaring that no matter how much money he gives to charity, it will never be enough to get into heaven.
"So can Ted Turner earn his way into heaven? The truth is that no matter how many billions of dollars Ted Turner (or any one for that matter) gives away, no matter how many animals he saves, and no matter what great things he does for people and this planet – none of this can get him to heaven," Ham wrote on Thursday on the Answers in Genesis blog.
He added that there is only one way to heaven, and that is through accepting Jesus' gift of salvation. more >>
