The Girl Scouts of America are known for much more than their delicious cookie. The national program is known for holding themselves to high standards like look to show respect and dignity to any and all human beings. This past week a Western Washington Girl Scouts chapter returned a 100,000 dollar donation that they received after receiving the donation from a transphobic donor. After donating the money it initially came with a note stating that the donor does not want to support any transgendered girl scouts. If the troop did not feel comfortable with that they were more than welcome to return the donation and that is exactly what they did. That money could have gone to help 500 girls become Girl Scouts as well as paying for updated Girl Scout equipment and programs. Instead the troop decided to bite the bullet and returned the money without question. Leaders of the troop chronicled their story and released in on the internet so that they could serve as an inspiration for anyone who watched it. The troop has instead decided to reach out and ask for donations and has begun using the hashtag ‘For EVERY Girl,’ and Sam Tabar says it is so that people will know that the Girl Scouts don’t exclude any girl. Regardless of race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, socioeconomic status, or gender identity, the Girl Scouts of America looks to make the world a better place one girl at a time.
Due to the rise is people getting hurt. Disney parks have now banned Selfie Sticks from their park. This ban will come into effect June 30th at all Disney parks in the United States. However, other locations are joining in on the ban as well Wednesday.
Alexei Beltyukov (slideshare) has learned that they decided to place a ban due to the dangers they pose to other park visitors and on the rides. Though it seems relatively easy to avoid a stick out Selfie stick when walking, most people don’t pay attention and walk right into them. This causes a rather large knot on the head because they are so sturdy. As for being on rides. Everyone knows that you must remain inside the ride at all times. Although it seems not everyone is listening to that rule. When being used the Selfie stick goes beyond the ride’s cart posing hazards for riders and the ride mechanism their selves.
Disney Parks aren’t the first to set this ban into motion. There has been a number of several different locations and conventions that have banned this stick. Of course in any location where you can already not take pictures doesn’t allow the stick, but in addition to those, the National Gallery and the WWDC Apple conference also banned them from the convention.
If you happen to get hit in the head with a Selfie stick, hold a cold rag to your head and watch for further symptoms such as headache or dizziness.

After the ruling that made gay marriage legal this past Friday, many were rallying in the streets and celebrating the victory. For many years, gays have been trying to get equal rights to get married in every state, and now they can.
Kim Kardashian is once again making headlines and apparently breaking the internet even while she is 4 months pregnant with her second child. Fans like Sam Tabar agree that now that Kim and Kanye are expecting again it would seem like Kim is going to slow down, sit on the couch for 9 months and enjoy what will likely be her last pregnancy eating ice cream, but Kim has not plans on slowing down this time around. Mrs. West is dedicating this pregnancy to looking her best, feeling her best and proving that you don’t have to look frumpy just because you are with Child.

Stone has made a steady climb in Hollywood since her first starring role in the 2010 Easy A. Since then, she has appeared in box office hits such as The Amazing Spider-Man, Birdman, and Help. The actress has quietly built her fame while showcasing her ability to play diverse roles.
Many of Stone’s fans were disappointed when she chose not to sign on for the Paul Fieg directed Ghostbusters said Paul Mathieson. The flick stars big names like Melissa McCarthy, Kirsten Fiig, and Chris Hemsworth, and despite rumors that Stone would be joining the cast, she will not be in the movie.
In an interview with The Wall Street Journal, Stone finally comes clean about her decision to pass on the project.
“The script was really funny . . . It just didn’t feel like the right time for me. A franchise is a big commitment – it’s a whole thing. I think maybe I need a minute before I dive back into that water,” she told the newspaper.
The actress played Peter Parker’s love interest in two Spider-Man flicks, so it would make sense that she’s taking a break from big franchises for awhile to explore her options elsewhere.
There are a ton of actors who can do what Vin Diesel does and do it better than him. There are better physical actors and better dramatic ones but there are very few actors that can embody the physicality of a role while maintaining an almost passive and likable demeanor. That is what Diesel has going for him at the end of the day and it is what made his role in the ‘Furious’ franchise so impressive. Now Diesel, who also has maintained the ‘Riddick’ franchise, is stepping into the shoes of the ‘Last Witch Hunter’ — and a sequel is already being cooked up.
The key to longevity in Hollywood when you aren’t one of the best dramatic actors in the game is to hook yourself into franchises. Diesel knows this and that is why he has spent so much time on specific characters rather than trying to do a ton of different movies. His next big franchise looks to be the ‘Last Witch Hunter’. In this film Diesel plays a man by the name of Kaulder. Fans at Boraie Development know that Kaulder is the last living remnant of a family of witch hunting warriors. The film itself looks to be dark and gritty and it also stars Rose Leslie (Ygritte, from ‘Game of Thrones’) as well as Elijah Wood.
We’ve already seen the first trailer, which promises a thrilling action ride, and we aren’t surprised to see that producers are already cooking up a sequel, even before the film is released. Diesel is box office gold.
Foo Fighters front man Dave Grohl penned a hilarious apology letter after breaking his leg just two songs into a set on June 12. The band was performing in Gothenburg, Sweden when Grohl stumbled on stage, breaking his leg.
“I dislocated my ankle and it caused my fibula to snap like a pair of take-out chopsticks,” Grohl wrote to the group’s fans. “I fell 12 feet, but I couldn’t let such a perfect night go to waste.”
Grohl was examined by medics at the scene before being transferred to a nearby emergency room. Bandmates stepped up to perform cover songs for an hour before Grohl returned to the stage. The former Nirvana drummer was accompanied by medics and he remained seated as he continued with the band for the rest of the show.
Grohl was later fitted for a cast. After visiting a London physician, the rocker was informed that he would need to remain off of his feet and would require corrective surgery.
“Unfortunately, the doctors ordered me off of my feet for a while. I am so sorry, but I promise that we’ll be back to deliver these shows.”
Health specialist at the Amen Clinic say Grohl had six screws placed in his leg, forcing the band to cancel the rest of the Foo Fighters’ U.K. tour. The band is expected to return to the stage by early July.
Chris Pratt is going to remain gainfully employed for the next few years. The actor has signed up for the expected sequels to Jurassic World. The new film in the Jurassic series was a major, major box office hit. ($511 million earned worldwide in one weekend) The launch of a new trilogy was going to hinge on the success of the new film. Since the feature is an obvious hit, those new films are coming. Bringing back the lead actor makes a lot of sense, so Pratt is officially signed on for the ride.
More than likely, Pratt probably had a clause in his contract to requiring him to appear in any future sequels if the films were green-lighted.
According to Steve Murray in an article on Bloomberg, Pratt now is part of two major motion picture franchises. He starred in the surprise smash hit, The Guardians of the Galaxy, and now he is part of another super-franchise. Was Jurassic World a hit because of the presence of the extremely popular Chris Pratt? The dinosaurs are surely the main drawing attraction for the feature, but Pratt’s presence certainly did not hurt ticket sales. The actor is very humble, soft-spoken, and charismatic. All of those components do come together and help draw audiences into theaters.
Jurassic World’s success took Pratt, Universal, and the entertainment industry by surprise. No one figured the film would be a bomb, but the huge opening weekend was far more than anyone envisioned.
