Emma Watson Almost Hung Up Her Wizardry Robes For A Muggle Education?!

What the WHAT?!

First it was Daniel Radcliffe and now Emma Watson?!

The Harry Potter franchise would've never been the same if the two quit their iconic roles, and we can't think of anyone more brilliant to play Hermione!

According to David Heyman, the producer who worked on all eight HP films, the cast originally signed up to appear in only two films.

Two of eight films?! It seems like it would be so time consuming to recast the characters for every Harry Potter film!

David talked about the negotiation process for each film, after wrapping up the Chamber of Secrets, he said:

David Beckham Presents Malala Yousafzai With The Courage Award At The Pride Of Britain Awards!

david beckham presents bravery award to malala yousafzai at pride of britain awards

What's better than winning an award??

How about having former soccer stud David Beckham hand you the trophy?! That's like having two victories for the price of one!

Last week, the iconic footballer was on hand at the Pride of Britain Awards in London, where he presented Malala Yousafzai with the Teenager of Courage Award, and she was DEFINITELY deserving!!

The 16-year-old Pakistani girl has been a well known advocate for women's education in her region over the past few years, and one day she was shot in both the head and neck by a Taliban gunman in an assassination attempt on her way home from school!

Luckily, Malala survived the attack, and since then she has become an icon around the world for equal opportunity education for girls!

Earlier this year, she was honored by Angelina Jolie at the Women in the World gala in NYC, and she also became the youngest person to EVER receive a nomination for the Nobel Peace Prize!

Oh, and did we mention she's also written a book??

At just 16 years of age, it's absolutely amazing to hear what Malala has already been able to accomplish in her life, and we know this wont be the last we hear of her!

Congrats on the big win! You deserve it!!

Kids Who Are Physically Fit Might Be Learning More!

Filed under: News

kids fitness physical learning activity

It's weird to think that everyone's idea of the "jock" being less than brilliant could be just as fictitious as we all secretly believed it to be!

According to a new study, it looks like kids who are more physically fit are able to absorb more information and learn more things in school!

We'd say that's a win-win!

The study from the American College of Sports Medicine, found that fourth- and fifth-grade students who ran around and otherwise exercised vigorously for at least 10 minutes before a math test did muuuuuuch better than those who sat quietly before taking it!

Here's the super interesting part: the better the fitness, the higher the scores. Meaning, body size had almost NO role. Students who were overweight but relatively fit did way better than lighter, less-fit children!

What this means is this, according to the authors of the study:

Shakira Pens Inspiring Letter About Expanding Quality Education!

shakir

Go, Shakira, go!!

The music icon wrote a VERY inspiring letter that basically called on the people of earth to try and do their part in making sure all children - wherever and whenever - get the education they deserve!!!

Here's part of what she wrote:

"Today, 18 years after I started, at 36 and as a new mom, I can see my work over the years coming full circle as I watch my own son develop. I'm finding that motherhood is a world of discovery, and I find myself in a constant state of awe watching Milan absorb the world around him at an astonishing pace. The first five years of life is when the brain grows at a rate that is unparalleled at any later stage in life. In fact, 85% of a child's core brain structure is developed by the age of four. So why not give them the best fighting chance possible from day one?

When I look at him I see limitless possibilities. I feel what I think all parents feel, and hope for their children's futures, regardless of their own background; a determination to make sure that their future is brighter than ours was and that their dreams of tomorrow exceed what we today are even capable of imagining. However, my work, our work, is far from done."

Towards the end of the letter she wrote:

"My hope is that those who read this are encouraged to find their own ways to contribute to improving our children's futures through education. Whether that means helping to spread the word to parents about the resources available to them, applauding our world leaders for the strides they are making in education while holding them accountable for continued progress, or being one of those business leaders who see investing in education as an innovation and not simply charity."

Her hips don't lie, and neither does she!

Girl speaks her mind, and what a beautiful mind it is!

Simply put - it's amazing!!!

Michelle Obama Sends EKU Graduates Off Into The World With Words Of Wisdom! WATCH HERE!

The magnificent beam of light that is Michelle Obama brought her enviable brainz to Eastern Kentucky University this past weekend to deliver the 2013 commencement address, and as usual, the First Lady DOMINATED.

Cue to 5:05 and watch Mrs. Obama's inspiring speech (above)!

As is her custom, Michelle's address is peppered with personal examples as a means to strengthen her arguments: arguments of perseverance, community, creativity, compassion and hope.

She challenges the graduates to really consider themselves — who they were as college students, who they are now, and who they want to be in the future.

Oh it makes us feel like we're graduating all over again, sniff!
