Isabella Rossellini Talks Moms Who Eat Their Babies And Moms Whose Babies Eat Them In ‘Mammas’

Isabella Rossellini Talks Moms Who Eat Their Babies And Moms Whose Babies Eat Them In 'Mammas'

Last night at the 92Y Tribeca, Isabella Rossellini previewed one of her nine short films entitled “Mammas,” a contemplation of motherhood that pivots towards the animal kingdom. But by juxtaposing animal behavior with that of human mothers, Isabella meditates on many of the complex threads of motherhood. Specifically, the complex and loaded terrain of “maternal instinct.”

Spanish Child Abuse Organization Crafts Genius Ad That Only Children Can See

Reaching out to abused children is difficult to say the least. Considering that these kids are most likely being abused by the person that they depend on the most — their parents or guardians — encouraging them to speak up is fraught territory. But the Aid to Children and Adolescents at Risk Foundation (ANAR) in Spain has just pioneered a worthwhile attempt: a child abuse ad that appears differently to kids and grownups. Or maybe a very short grownup. More »

You All Are Much Better At Grocery Shopping Than I Am But We All Suck Compared To The Rest of The World

You All Are Much Better At Grocery Shopping Than I Am But We All Suck Compared To The Rest of The World

What I am not looking forward to is actually grocery shopping, because I detest going to the store more than just about anything, and I end up spending way too much money and then have nothing to create actual meals from. I’m a terrible grocery shopper, even though I know how to grocery shop. I know how to check ads for sales. I know how to use coupons. I know how to make lists but I rarely do these things. More »

The Lazy – And Kinda Gross- Way To Clean Your Baby’s Pacifier May Prove Super Beneficial

The Lazy - And Kinda Gross- Way To Clean Your Baby's Pacifier May Prove Super Beneficial

Yay! So being lazy and cleaning your kid’s pacifier like this is not only excellent if you aren’t near a sink, but may prove beneficial to their health. I still believe that thumbs are a better alternative to pacifiers, after all, a baby cannot lose their thumb or drop their thumb, but I see nothing wrong with either method of self-soothing. Adults do it, so why shouldn’t babies? More »

Blindly Enforcing School Policy Forces Child With Skin Disease To Miss School

Blindly Enforcing School Policy Forces Child With Skin Disease To Miss School

I understand the importance of school policies being enforced, but it gets ridiculous when administrators refuse to acknowledge that some students may have special circumstances that prevent them from following procedures like everyone else. An 8-year-old Philadelphia student with Alopecia – a disease that makes hair fall out in patches – is being told to stay home from school for violating the school’s ban on “long hair.” More »

I’ve Signed The Petition Calling For Kids’ Instagram Privacy Changes, Have You?

I've Signed The Petition Calling For Kids' Instagram Privacy Changes, Have You?

Are you kidding me? So any random psycho can walk into the library, open Instagram, pick out a target and have access to all of the information necessary to find and kidnap said child? In what world is this okay? When I was growing up, we weren’t even allowed to wear shirts or hats with our names on them because kidnappers might beckon us by calling our names out. This so totally goes beyond that. More »

Simon ‘Man Boobs’ Cowell Says Demi Lovato Is Too Fat For The X Factor

Simon 'Man Boobs' Cowell Says Demi Lovato Is Too Fat For The X Factor

It’s pretty obvious that Cowell is a raging douchecanoe with about the breadth of a hair’s worth of empathy for other human beings. Yes, he’s filthy nasty insanely rich and probably a damn good businessman, considering his annual salary is in the multi-millions. But wouldn’t it be nice, just once in awhile, to see someone with this kind of power and influence NOT say something asinine to a female entertainer about her body? More »
