Oh the root beer float. The best possible combination of ice cream and soda ever devised by man. Usually they are pretty cheap at local restaurants.
However one YouTuber offers a way to make a $900 root beer float, which at the least he says is pretty good.
Andy George, of the YouTube account "How to Make Everything," traveled approximately 1,100 miles to collect all the essential ingredients to make the concoction from scratch. more >>
An Evangelical leader in the Palestinian communities has disputed a story from October in which Israel's ambassador to the United Nations presented a diagram claiming Palestinian children are taught lessons such as "how to stab a Jew."
Ambassador Danny Danon made the claim on Oct. 16 before the U.N. Security Council, where he held up a diagram displaying the human body with the title "How to stab a Jew." Danon alleged that such material was being shown to Palestinian children, who he said are "taught how to hate."
"We talk about a lot about incitement — here you see what Palestinian incitement looks like. The picture is being taught in middle schools, in high schools, in elementary schools. Instead of educating about peace and tolerance, the Palestinian leadership is brainwashing children with incitement and hate," Danon said at the time. more >>
A historically African-American denomination whose president recently took part in a summit on racial unity hopes the event will be a beginning to many conversations on reconciliation.
The National Baptist Convention, USA took part in a summit on racial reconciliation last week in Mississippi alongside the Southern Baptist Convention.
After the Missouri president and chancellor were toppled by student protesters claiming a racist climate on campus, some emboldened activists are seeking new demands nationally, including cancellation of student debt and free tuition.
Reuters and other media outlets reported that some college students participated in a Million Student March Thursday.
The movement not only calls for debt cancellation and free tuition, but $15 an hour minimum wage for student workers. A website promoting the hashtag #millionstudentmarch confirms the demands. more >>
A week that saw presidential candidate Marco Rubio denigrate philosophy majors also showed why philosophy is important with campus unrest at Mizzou and Yale.
"For the life of me, I don't know why we have stigmatized vocational education. Welders make more money than philosophers. We need more welders and less philosophers," Sen. Rubio, R-Fla., said.
His first sentence is correct, of course. Vocational education and jobs that do not require a college education are honorable and valuable, and there are many well-paying jobs for welders and such. As Protestant Reformation theologians pointed out long ago, there is dignity and worth in manual labor, and these jobs can be as much a service to God as the work of philosophers.
