On 9 October 2012, as Malala and her friends were travelling home from school, a masked gunman entered their school bus and asked for Malala by name. She was shot with a single bullet which went through her head, neck and shoulder. Malala accepted the Nobel Peace Prize on 10 December, 2014 with Indian children’s rights and education advocate Kailash Satyarthi. Malala contributed her $1.1 million prize money to financing the creation of a secondary school for girls in Pakistan

He came back with a pencil, a 2H pencil, and a big legal tablet and he said, ‘Hold these two items. If you put the pencil to the paper, it has greater value than it did as separate parts. So get out of here.’ I get in the elevator and I realize basically what he said was, in order to have value, you had to either create or manufacture ideas that had value that you could breathe life into. And that’s when I started writing ideas.

Prepon was unimpressed with her on-screen boyfriend’s kissing abilities, even stating that her Orange is the New Black co-star Taylor Schilling was far superior in the lips department than Topher. Ouch!

At lunch that day, the prison is serving chocolate pudding, a product Mr. Cosby was associated with as a pitchman for Jell-O.

The pudding on the menu is simply a “gelatin product,” not Jell-O brand.

I was born in Northwestern Pennsylvania and lived in a trailer park. I was raised by very conservative and religious (Wesleyan Methodist) parents. By some miracle I graduated college and moved to Florida. I have been a public school teacher since 1995. I have 7 years until I can retire. I was married in 1999 and divorced in 2001. I remarried in 2017 to Kate - 21 years my junior. Some of my life experiences as a 46-year-old, white American male, will come through in my writing, but the majority of this daily journey will be dedicated to improving myself, and hopefully you as well.
