The historic ban on openly gay leaders is set to be officially struck down within the Boy Scouts of America after its executive committee voted unanimously on the change late last week. Individual Scout troops will be allowed to set their own policy on leaders, meaning that church-sponsored troops would be allowed to uphold the ban.
"This change allows Scouting's members and parents to select local units, chartered to organizations with similar beliefs, that best meet the needs of their families," the BSA said in statement on Monday. "This change would also respect the right of religious chartered organizations to continue to choose adult leaders whose beliefs are consistent with their own."
Graduate students at Liberty University in Lynchburg, Virginia, America's largest private, nonprofit university and the world's largest Christian university, borrowed more than $351 million to fund their studies in the 2013-2014 academic year to place the institution on a list of 20 schools responsible for a fifth of all graduate school debt.
A new study from the Center for American Progress highlighted by The Washington Post, showed that Liberty University was ranked seventh on the list of 20 schools to which the government disbursed $6.5 billion in loans on behalf of graduate students even though these schools only educate 12 percent of the nation's graduate students.
Liberty University was ranked behind Walden University where students borrowed the most at just over $756 million and Nova Southeastern University where graduate students borrowed more than half a billion dollars. more >>
Taylor Swift recently donated $50,000 to a young fan who is battling Leukemia after the girl's family led a viral campaign to get the pop star's attention.
On June 25, Naomi Oakes, an 11-year-old Christian girl from San Tan Valley, Arizona, was diagnosed with acute myeloid leukemia and she chose Swift's Billboard chart topping hit "Bad Blood" as her "fight song." The rare form of cancer will require a six-to-nine months hospital stay as part of Naomi's course of treatment, which has devastated the Swift fan because it means she will miss the Grammy award-winning singer's Aug. 18 concert in Phoenix.
Naomi received tickets to Swift's show as a Christmas present and had made plans to attend with her "bestest best friend Piper" before she received the heartbreaking diagnosis at Cardon Children's Hospital in Mesa. more >>
As adults of this generation we know how important it is to have our vision with all the different types of technology. We often use our vision to help us read text messages or see images clearly. This little girl has had some issues seeing clearly until she put her new glasses on. It was a priceless reaction!
For toddlers, it becomes more difficult to communicate when they have discomfort. But due to some obvious signs, this girl was able to get help. Vision is something many of us tend to take for granted, even though it is something that guides us through life and helps us clearly make decisions. A young person's first pair of glasses is usually followed by complete awe. It hurts because their perception of the world is a lot different than those people who are able to see.
This little girl has her glasses put on and sees the world clearly for the first time, and her reaction is guaranteed to make you smile! more >>
