#BoyScouts

§ Girls are now allowed to join the Boy Scouts of America.

§ They’ll be allowed to earn the coveted rank of Eagle Scout, the organization’s highest honor.

§ The scouting board of directors voted unanimously this week to make the historic change.

§ The CEO said they hoped the change would “meet the needs of families interested in positive and lifelong experience for their children.”

§ The organization has been primarily for boys since its founding more than 100 years ago, with some co-ed programs.

§ Starting next year, young girls will be able to join Cub Scout units known as dens. The dens will remain single-sex.

 

#Batman

§ Study shows pretending to be Batman helps kids focus on boring tasks.

§ Researchers assigned kids tasks to complete but were told they could take breaks to play on an iPad if they’d like.

§ They found that kids that were asked to pretend that they were Batman, Bob the Builder, Rapunzel or Dora while they were doing the task, spent a longer time on the task than the others.

§ They say that when they feel they have a role to play, they are less tempted by other things.

 

#DietAvocados

§ A Spanish company has invented diet avocados.

§ They claim they have 1/3 less fat than regular avocados.

§ It’s the Isla Bonita brand and it’s described as having a mild flavor and juicier pulp and also ripening fast, yet oxidizing more slowly (won’t turn grey so fast.)

§ Unfortunately, we won’t be able to get it here…it will only be available in Spain.

§ And because it’s a Frankenfruit (a human created fruit), it also grows year-round.
