Sun Protection

Sun Protection

There are many terms used when product developers and experts discuss the sun and our exposure to it. The following definitions should help you weed through the advertising and right to what the product is really offering.When I was a teenager, it was a badge of honor to get a sunburn because then it was supposed to turn into a sun tan. With very fair skin, I quickly realized that getting a sunburn did me no good. My skin just peeled and returned to very pale. When I was in my later teens, the U.S. started learning that getting sunburned was not good for our skin and could cause skin cancer. However, it has taken decades for that knowledge to translate into products that protect our skin.

Celebrating Martin Luther King, Jr.

 Celebrating Martin Luther King, Jr.

Martin Luther King, Jr. stood for equality in the face of overwhelming oppression, violence, and corruption in the heart of the United States. He united thousands of people against the oppression of black people in this country. Before his death, King had organized a movement to unite citizens to fight for the dignity of the impoverished folks of this country in much the same way he fought for the citizens of color.

Happy Thanksgiving!!!

We here at Learning Differences World wish all of you a very Happy Thanksgiving! We know that there is controversy around this holiday, but we like to think of Thanksgiving as a time to be thankful for all that we have and that we have been given.

To this end, we looked for some short videos that express our thoughts. In so doing, we discovered Kid President. Kid President is a website started by Robby Novak, who is 10 years old, and his brother-in-law Bradley Montague. Robby and Bradley are out to change how people think about themselves and the world. We hope that you enjoy these videos and find them as inspiring as we do.
