Keep Calm And Carry On…..But How

I’m sure most of you have heard the phrase “Keep Calm and Carry On” before. It seemed like it was everywhere for a while.

But how do you actually do that? Sometimes it’s hard to do one, let alone both.

This is a pretty great post on some ways to keep calm AND carry on — I think you’ll like it!

Slogans?

Business slogans were once pretty common —but have faded away slightly for some of the bigger brands these days.

This is an interesting Inc.com article centered around Burger King’s new (well, sort of new) slogan.

Read, Kids, Read

Saw that another ZA posted this on her page earlier and wanted to share with everyone. It really is a great article.

Columnist Frank Bruni offers some sad new research on children’s reading habits and makes the case for improving these numbers.

As he points out from scientific research, “reading and intelligence have a relationship so close as to be symbiotic.”

Any ideas on how we can get our children reading more?

They found the Santa Maria

History buffs woke up to some AMAZING news this morning — researchers think they’ve identified the ruin of Christopher Columbus’ flagship the Santa Maria!

You’ll probably remember the Santa Maria from your US History textbooks (along with the Nina and the Pinta!) — and this is some serious history geekdom here.

How cool??
