Filed under: Icky Icky PooZportzViolenceFootballNFL

The NFL is taking steps towards cracking down on domestic violence in the league.

FINALLY.

This past offseason, NFL commissioner Roger Goodell came under heavy fire after he suspended Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice for merely 2 games after he beat his now-wife, Janay Palmer, and dragged her apparently unconscious body out of an elevator.

Many felt the punishment did NOT fit the crime and was proof that league was turning a blind eye towards domestic violence towards women.

Well Roger heard the criticism and realized the error in his ways, and most importantly he decided to take action. The commissioner released a statement on the controversy, saying:

If you've ben following the World Cup at all, it's safe to assume you've heard the name Luis Suárez.

If you haven't, he's a soccer player for Uruguay and he bit a fellow player, Italy's Giorgio Chiellini.

Meditation Helps Rough San Francisco Schools Find Their Happy Place!

san francisco schools using meditation see boost in student perfromance

Have you had your daily dose of "om" today? Because according to these San Francisco schools, it can make a HUGE difference in your life!

Visitacion Valley Middle School first adopted the Quiet Time program in 2007, which gives students two meditation breaks per day to try and clear their minds! The school, which is situated in one of the roughest neighborhoods in the city, has seen DRASTIC improvements since then!

In just the first year of the program alone, the school saw a 45% drop in suspensions and it now has one of the lowest suspension rates in the city! Attendance is also up to 98%, grades have skyrocketed since then, and perhaps most importantly of all, the youngsters tested as the happiest students in the city — most of which is attributed to a major drop in their stress levels!

Superintendent Richard Carranza, one of the program's biggest supporters, believes more schools should adopt Quiet Time, and he says the results definitely don't lie:

"The research is showing big effects on students' performance. Our new accountability standards, which we're developing in tandem with the other big California districts, emphasize the importance of social-emotional factors in improving kids' lives, not just academics. That's where Quiet Time can have a major impact, and I'd like to see it expand well beyond a handful of schools."

So far, only a few schools in San Francisco have adopted the program, but all of them have seen amazing results across the board!

In fact, the California Achievement Test showed that twice as many students in the Quiet Time program proved to be proficient in english than those who weren't in the program, and the numbers were even bigger when it came to math!

Overall, it looks like the program has definitely led to a huge emotional improvement in these students which has in turn had a huge effect on their grades!

So the real question is, why aren't more schools doing it? It definitely can't hurt!
