Natural Easter Egg Dye Recipes
by Yvonne Feld
February 26, 2015
Easter rapidly approaching, I knew that mom's everywhere would soon be thinking about coloring Easter eggs for the hunts that will be taking place all over.
We've always got fruits and vegetables on hand, as my husband is a juicing fiend. I knew it would be easy to gather exactly what I needed to have a wide variety of colors. Brown onions, red onions, beets, blueberries, spinach, red cabbage, turmeric, and paprika.
When MEDICINE becomes MURDER: America's vaccine narrative now mirrors Nazi eugenics propaganda
by Mike Adams
February 23, 2015
With each passing day as vaccine fanaticism spreads like a virus of the mind across the mainstream media, America is marching down the path of genocide and heinous human rights violations in the name of "SCIENCE!"
The very arguments used by today's vaccine pushers to claim that the government should force everyone to be vaccinated against their will closely resemble the eugenics justifications of Nazi Germany. The collection of Nazi propaganda posters you see below has been translated by Natural News in order to show the parallels between Nazi crimes against humanity and today's fanatical vaccine mandate schemes that are based on very similar moral justification and distorted logic.
Why is the Mainstream Media Ignoring Measles Vaccine Fraud Cases?
by Brian Shilhavy
February 5, 2015
The current measles outbreak and measles vaccines are a hot topic of debate raging in both the mainstream and alternative media. However, it would appear that the mainstream media's reporting on this issue is leaving out some very important facts.
Given the severity of the issue and the current rhetoric, which includes some in the mainstream media calling for criminal prosecution and incarceration of parents who refuse the measles vaccine, it is very important that all the facts involving the measles vaccine are revealed to the public. Unfortunately, one topic in the discussion about measles vaccines that the mainstream media is completely ignoring is the fact that whistleblowers have come forward to reveal massive fraud connected with the current measles vaccine.
Progressive labels for regressive practices: How key terms in education have been co-opted
by Valerie Strauss

Words matter. As Arthur H. Camins noted here, the words accountability, no-excuses and choice have "been claimed and defined by currently powerful policy makers and associated with their values."
And "no excuses language evokes blaming teachers, administrators, students and their parents for disappointing outcomes, while deflecting attention from the need to address systemic issues, such as the burden of poverty on children's lives and inequitable school funding." In the following posts, Alfie Kohn expands on this theme.
The Man Behind Common Core Math
by Sarah Garland
December 30, 2014
Every Saturday morning at 10 a.m., Jason Zimba begins a math tutoring session for his two young daughters with the same ritual. Claire, 4, draws on a worksheet while Abigail, 7, pulls addition problems written on strips of paper out of an old Kleenex box.
But Zimba, a mathematician by training, is not just any disgruntled parent. He's one of the guys who wrote the Common Core. And four years after signing off on the final draft of the standards, he spends his weekends trying to make up for what he considers the lackluster curriculum at his daughter's school, and his weekdays battling the lackluster curriculum and teaching at schools around the country that are struggling to shift to the Common Core.
The True Story of Pain and Hope Behind "I Heard the Bells on Christmas Day"
by Justin Taylor
December 21, 2014
In March of 1863, 18-year-old Charles Appleton Longfellow walked out of his family's house on Brattle Street in Cambridge, Massachusetts, and-unbeknownst to his family-boarded a train bound for Washington, D.C., traveling over 400 miles.
Charles (b. June 9, 1844) was the oldest of six children born to Fannie Elizabeth Appleton and Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, the celebrated literary critic and poet. Charles had five younger siblings: a brother (aged 17) and three sisters (ages 13, 10, 8-another one had died as an infant).
10 Reasons Why Handheld Devices Should Be Banned for Children Under the Age of 12
by Cris Rowan
December 3, 2014
The American Academy of Pediatrics and the Canadian Society of Pediatrics state infants aged 0-2 years should not have any exposure to technology, 3-5 years be restricted to one hour per day, and 6-18 years restricted to 2 hours per day.
As a pediatric occupational therapist, I'm calling on parents, teachers and governments to ban the use of all handheld devices for children under the age of 12 years. Following are 10 research-based reasons for this ban.
Two More States Eye Repeal of Common Core
by Kelsey Harkness
November 12, 2014
Elected officials in Wisconsin and Ohio are spearheading efforts to reclaim more control of education.
Although officials on both sides doubt the bill will garner enough support to pass by the end of the year, they are hopeful the legislature will take up the issue in 2015. But to be safe, Common Core supporters like state Rep. Gerry Stebelton, R-Lancaster, say they will double down on efforts to defeat the House committee's repeal bill.
Chicken fight ruffles feathers in Tawas City
October 21, 2014
Meet Michigan's foulest criminals. They're chickens, but not your ordinary poultry. These nine hens are threatening to topple the government of this northern Michigan hamlet.
A young couple's attempt to raise chickens led to their arrest, the resignation of the mayor and city manager, the possible recall of two City Council members, a Michigan State Police investigation and endless chicken jokes. When Mayor Kane Kelly tried to help the couple, he was pressured to resign during a meeting that may have violated the state's open meetings law.
