“Groups of people are gathering and freezing themselves in place, often in elaborate poses and scenarios, as one camera-toting person walks through the scene to zoom in on the details. As is often the case, teenagers are leading the way.”
My kids always want a bottle of water next to their beds at night. And often they knock it over and it spills. This is where Litecup comes in. It emits a blue glow so your kid doesn’t have to fumble in the dark. It allows you to drink from anywhere on the lid—there’s a 360-degree valve. And when you’re done, the valve locks automatically. So even if you knock it over, it won’t spill. Pretty cool!
Me asks kids 100s of questions about their feelings, their families, friends, school, and home, with words, pictures, photos, and sounds to create a vibrant, dynamic self-portrait.
Me aims to help kids build skills like self-awareness, social awareness, and emotional literacy. The app is based on research suggesting that the better kids understand themselves, the more able they are to be empathetic and understand others.

My friend Céline, founder of Slow Factory is one of the most courageous women I know. She uses fashion as a tool for social and environmental change. On cooler days like today, I always leave my house wearing one of her Slow Factory scarves. Her recent Women That Inspire collection is a thing of beauty.
You’re an inspiration, Céline!
