Millions of kids across America are eating healthier school meals because of new nutrition standards from the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA).

 

Today at 2:30 p.m. ET, the First Lady held a Twitter Q&A to help raise awareness around the importance of our kids eating healthy and getting the nutrition they need.

ConnectED: A Year of Action for American Students and Teachers

One year ago, President Obama unveiled his ConnectED initiative to empower students and teachers with technology in the classroom. The President called on businesses, states, districts, schools, and communities to support this vision, and through the power of his pen and phone, he is building momentum and we are seeing results.

 

Over the past year, the President has worked with the private sector to catalyze impactful commitments of free hardware, software, educational content, and wireless connectivity — amounting to over $2 billion in value for American schools.

 

On top of that, Federal Communications Commission (FCC) Chairman Tom Wheeler has pledged to invest an additional $2 billion to connect 20 million more students to fast broadband and wireless in their classrooms over the next two years. Taken together, this represents more than $4 billion in public and private support starting this calendar year.

 

This investment is the shot of adrenaline our schools need to surge into the 21st century. It is a major down payment on providing every child in America with the high-quality teaching and technological skills that they deserve, and the economy demands.

And we are keeping our foot on the accelerator.

 

Today, we are announcing that the 10 companies who have made ConnectED commitments are making those private funding resources available to schools across the country, and information about these and other resources will be accessible through a new ConnectED Hub.

Shannon Watts, Everytown for Gun Safety: Moms target TARGET

 

Thanks to you, pressure is quickly building on Target to end open carry of guns in their stores.

 

Can you take a quick minute to share the image below on Facebook or on Twitter so that Target knows we’re counting on them to do the right thing?

 

In the last two weeks, here’s what moms and other gun sense supporters have accomplished:

 

  • We’ve collected more than 250,000 petition signatures to Target’s CEO, John Mulligan.
  • Moms and other amazing volunteers have delivered these petitions to 20 stores in 16 states — from Iowa to California.
  • More than 5,000 people have called Target headquarters to demand action from the company’s leadership.

 

We even showed up outside Target’s shareholder meeting in Dallas yesterday to make sure they know we aren’t going away. Thanks to you, the pressure is on and momentum is building.

 

Take a look at some of the photos from our day of action below:

This Target campaign is just like the previous campaigns you’ve helped win — getting big corporations to adopt smarter policies that keep their customers safe — like you and me and our families.

 

With the right pressure, Target will heed our call. We just can’t let up until they do.

 

Thanks for standing with us,

 

Shannon Watts
Founder
Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America

 

Everytown for Gun Safety is a movement of Americans fighting for common-sense gun policies. We are moms, mayors, survivors, and concerned citizens.

Your South Lawn Seat To The 2014 White House Easter Egg Roll. Videos And Photo Gallery Slide Show.


 

By Jueseppi B.

Blwm2d5CMAA2oKT

 

About 30,000 people, including a few celebrities, are expected to crowd onto the South Lawn of the White House Monday for the annual Easter Egg Roll.

 

The egg roll, now in its 136th year, will feature Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III, actor Jim Carrey, singer Ariana Grande, 2014 Miss America winner Nina Davuluri, and Sesame Street’s very own Cookie Monster.

 

There also will be live performances from pop stars and the U.S. Marine Corps Band. Cam Anthony, the 12-year-old Youtube star, will sing the National Anthem at the Rock ‘n’ Egg Roll Stage.

 

The theme of this year’s egg roll is “Hop into Healthy, Swing into Shape,” part of First Lady Michelle Obama’s Let’s Move initiative to promote healthy eating habits in children.

President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama hosted the 136th annual Easter Egg Roll at the White House, Monday. In Obama fashion, the theme of this year’s roll was keeping young people active and healthy. Nearly 30,000 were expected. (April 21)

 

 

 

Remarks by the President and the First Lady at the Easter Egg Roll

 

South Lawn

10:34 A.M. EDT

 

THE PRESIDENT:  Well, hello everybody.  Is everybody having fun?  (Applause.)  Happy Easter.  This is the biggest event that we have at the White House all year long and it is our most fun event, because we have a chance to see families from all across the country coming through here.  My main and only job, other than officiating over the roll at some point, is to introduce, alongside the Easter Bunny, the person who makes this all possible — we love her dearly — my wife, the First Lady, Michelle Obama.  (Applause.)

 

MRS. OBAMA:  Thank you, honey. Hey, everybody.  Happy Easter Egg Roll Day.  Isn’t this exciting?  It is so wonderful to have so many of you here today.  We are celebrating the 136th Easter Egg Roll.  The theme of this year’s roll is “Hop Into Health, Swing Into Shape.”  Yes, I love it.

 

And it’s going to be a great day.  We have beautiful weather, because the Easter Egg Roll is blessed.  And we’re going to have fun stuff going on.  We’ve got the Egg Roll.  We’ve got some storytelling.  We’ve got entertainment.  We’ve got wonderful athletes and performers like Cam and so many others.  We’ve got obstacle courses and yoga and face painting and egg hunts.  It’s just going to be terrific.  As Barack said, we love this event.  This is the largest event that we do here on the South Lawn.  We’re going to have more than 30,000 people on the lawn today.

 

And we’re just thrilled that this theme is focusing on one issue that is near and dear to my heart, and it’s making sure that our young people are active and healthy.  So while you’re here, parents, look around.  You’re going to learn how to make healthy snacks that the kids will actually eat.  I’m going to be over there on the chef’s stage doing some demonstrations.

 

And I want to make sure that kids know that healthy eating and being active can be fun, because what today is about is having a whole lot of fun.  And I hope you all do that, because we want our kids to be the healthiest and the strongest they can be, so they can do well in school and live up to all of their God-given potential.  Isn’t that right, parents?  That’s what we want for you all.  (Applause.)

 

And we want to thank the Easter Bunny, as always, for being here.  And I would be remiss if I didn’t thank the hundreds of volunteers who make today possible.  (Applause.)  Thank you to our volunteers who have been out here setting up the South Lawn, who are going to make sure you guys get through these activities and have a great time.

 

So you all just enjoy.  That’s all you have to do from this point on, is have fun.  And we’ll be down there to participate in the Egg Roll.  The President is going to read.  I’m going to read a little bit.  So we’ll meet you down on the South Lawn, okay?

 

All right.  Have a great time.  Bye-bye.  (Applause.)

No matter how things change, what makes us wholesome never will.

 

 

 

The Honey Maid spot, which first ran on March 10, has generated its share of negative responses, most notably a letter-writing campaign from the not-at-all-overreacting One Million Moms.

Nabisco should be ashamed of themselves for their latest Honey Maid and Teddy Graham cracker commercial where they attempt to normalize sin,” wrote the group. “This commercial not only promotes homosexuality, but then calls the scene in the advertisement wholesome.”

December 4th 2013 Is National Cookie Day


 

By Jueseppi B.

Nationalcookieday

 

 

National Cookie Day

It’s National Cookie Day! Did you know that the English word “cookie” is derived from the Dutch word “koekje,” which means little cake? Dutch bakers used to test oven temperatures on small amounts of batter so that they would not waste the entire cake mix if the temperature wasn’t right. It was not long before they discovered that these tiny pieces of cooked batter were actually quite tasty!

 

Cookies come in all different flavors, shapes, and sizes. To celebrate National Cookie Day, bake a few batches of your favorite variety and invite your friends over for a cookie swap!

2 teaspoons shortening

 

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. In a large bowl, beat butter with an electric mixer on medium to high speed for 30 seconds. Beat in brown sugar, salt, and, if desired, pumpkin pie spice, scraping the bowl occasionally. Beat in as much of the flour as you can with the mixer. Stir in any remaining flour with a spatula or wooden spoon. Use your hands to bring dough together in a ball.
  2. Pat or roll dough into a 12×8-inch rectangle (about 1/4 inch thick) on an ungreased baking sheet. Cut the 8 inch side of the dough into eight 1-inch strips (do not separate strips). Cut each strip lengthwise into six 2-inch sections (do not separate rectangles). After cutting, there should be 48 rectangles measuring 1×2-inches. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes until cookies are lightly browned and crisp. Cool on cookie sheet on a wire rack.
  3. In a small microwave-safe bowl, combine Ghirardelli® 60% Cacao Bittersweet Chocolate Baking Chips and shortening. Microwave on medium power (50 percent) for 1 minute. Remove and stir. If chocolate is not melted, return to microwave and repeat heating step, stirring every 30 seconds to avoid scorching. Stir until smooth. Dip cookies in melted chocolate; let excess drip back into the bowl. Placed dipped cookies on waxed paper; let stand until set. Enjoy immediately, store in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 3 days, or freeze up to 3 months.
