Imagine you're working at a school and one of the kids is starting to act up. What do you do?

Traditionally, the answer would be to give the unruly kid detention or suspension.

Robert W. Coleman Elementary School has been doing something different when students act out: offering meditation.

This is what the world needs today. This is a free 6-part online course from Oxford that teaches you how to think critically. If only we could get both Democrats and Republicans to take these courses, there would never be another nonsense government in our country. Take the course. It's free, and all educated people should know how to think through arguments that are put forth every day by government, media, and our own illogical friends.

Financial education hasn't always been a priority in Washington schools. But under new standards adopted this year, students will learn about financial subjects like spending and saving - and why they'll need to know about wages, insurance premiums and Roth IRAs when they're adults.

Usually, having a higher level of education is a good thing -- it often means a better job, salary and lifestyle. But a new study suggests a college education may also be linked to a higher risk for a serious health problem: brain cancer. Now, experts are struggling to understand why.

This phrase is used in a sketch about a badly translated English-Hungarian phrasebook from the British TV comedy show, Monty Python's Flying Circus. It's possibly the most useful phrase there is, and a handy one to have when you're asked to say something in a language you're learning.

Brilliant artists, poets, and intellectuals established Black Mountain College's reputation as a bastion of innovative thinkers. The college's brief, obscure existence - and its avant-garde "Happening" - sealed its legend.

At the end of last year, the BuzzFeed team asked students and co-workers to label a map. Those in the UK were asked to label a map of the United States, while those in the US were tasked to label a map of Europe.
Yes there is a difference between labeling states of one particular country versus labeling countries in a continent. Sure some people were probably goofing around and not taking the request too seriously. And while many of the attempts will make you chuckle, some of the maps are quite commendable! Before you snicker too hard, maybe quiz yourself and see how you fare?

Just like facts and flies, English words have life-spans. Some are thousands of years old, from before English officially existed, others change, or are replaced or get ditched entirely. Here are 18 uncommon or obsolete words that we think may have died early.

The English language is full of beautiful words. Like effervescent, and skullduggery, and defenestrate.

And then there are these. These blights. Affectations that are completely devoid of meaning. Crimes against the English language that, just by saying them, you can lower any IQ within earshot.

You may look at some of the words and say, "Those are portmanteaus and acronyms and memes! Onomatopoeias and slang terms! Surely they do not count as words!"

But, these are all things I have personally heard people say out loud. Not to mention their constant, unending appearances in every corner of the internet. These are things ingrained in our language so deeply that, no matter where you say them, no matter who you say them to, these things will be understood. That makes them words

School children have been banned from putting up their hands in class when answering a question and are instead being told to raise a thumb like The Fonz. Pupils at Burlington Junior School in Bridlington, East Yorks, have been asked to adopt the new hand signal to create a more relaxed classroom.
