The collection of skirts, dresses, jewelry, cardigans and more takes inspiration from both the characters and the stunning visuals from the movie itself. Jorge Gutierrez and Guillermo del Toro, the creators of the animated film "The Book of Life" from 20th Century Fox and Reel FX Animation Studios, are entering the fashion industry.
Last week, Hot Topic, in partnership with Twentieth Century Fox Consumer Products, unveiled a graphically-stunning limited-edition collection of fashion apparel inspired by the fantasy-adventure film"The Book of Life," which hits theaters Oct.
Produced by Del Toro and directed by Gutierrez, "The Book of Life" is the journey of Manolo, a young man who is torn between fulfilling the expectations of his family and following his heart.
The fantastical adventure features the voices of actors Channing Tatum, Zoe Saldana, Diego Luna, Ron Perlman, Ice Cube and Danny Trejo, among others.
Like the rest of us, Levitt has seen the official trailer of the film, and she says she can't wait to see it on the big screen on Oct. In addition to the new collection, Hot Topic will offer a wide range of "The Book of Life" film tees, jewelry, accessories and fragrances. Hot Topic in partnership with Twentieth Century Fox Consumer Products, unveiled a graphically-stunning limited-edition collection of fashion apparel inspired by the fantasy-adventure, a€?The Book of Life,a€? which hits theaters on Oct.

Science Fair Idea Instructions for Parents and KidsAs an educator and a parent, I've written these instructions to help. I give a full explanation, step by step photos, full directions and educational videos for a variety of original science experiments that my children have done. What is a Science Project?A science fair project is done to investigate something about the natural world, whether it is chemistry, biology, physics, psychology or other area of science. Look at their guess and results and draw a conclusion of whether their guess was right or wrong and perhaps suggest what they would do for further exploration of their question.
As students do their experiment, they will take notes so that they can prepare a poster which describes their project so that someone else can understand what they learned. How to Prepare Science Fair Poster?This is the question I get the most often as a science fair coordinator. At Science conferences, scientists show their work through giving talks with slides or by standing by a poster which describes their work, just as kids do at a Science Fair.
How to Make Science Fair Display BoardGenerally, Science posters for school science fairs are tri-fold, which means that they are folded on either side so that they can stand up for easier viewing.
Conclusion (This is where you explain what happened, and tell whether your guess was correct or not.
Journal Your Project: As you are working through each stage of you information, be sure you keep a notebook or journal of your process.
Type or Hand Write your Results for Your Board: It is a lot easier for you to type or write your information and titles for each part of your report on a separate piece of paper and then paste or tape this paper onto your poster board rather than writing on the board itself. Keep Your Camera on Hand: Your poster will be more interesting if you include some pictures you take while doing your experiment or use clip art pictures or pictures you draw.
A lot of work goes into science fair projects and students deserve to have that work rewarded.
At the middle and high school level in our district, students are judged at school and can also go on to regional and state fair. Science Fair Project Website ReviewsThere are many websites available to help students and parents do science projects. This page on the Home Training Tools site offers some excellent and easy science fair projects with clear instructions and illustrations.
The Discovery Education center gives many ideas for easy science fair questions for elementary students.
Is Science Fair Worth the Effort?Participating in Science Fair is a great experience for kids, but it can be a lot of work for everyone.

HEADLINESPope Francis Meets With YouTube Stars To Spread Tolerance And UnderstandingTop 50 Most Viewed U.S. Shane Dawson knows his videos (and feature-length films) aren’t for everyone, but he doesn’t think that preference should stop people from reading his upcoming book. The YouTube star and filmmaker explained how he didn’t think he could “pull off a novel.” Instead, he aimed for a collection of personal prose.
Dawson claims to not take himself too seriously in his memoir, as he said he knows what he does for a living is “ridiculous.” But he doesn’t want that to turn people away from reading his book, especially those readers who are past their teenage years.

In response to your new Catwoman and Starfire comics, I’m not going to rant like Comics Alliance (though you need to read that) or Andrew Wheeler (also an excellent read) or Ms.
And for good measure, below is my 7-year old daughter as she falls asleep most nights, reading.
Well, she’s a grown up in that picture, not like in the Teen Titans cartoon, so if you’re a grown up and you want to wear something like that you can.

If this is your attempt at being edgy and reaching out the huge female comic audience out here, then I look forward to when this crap collapses around you so someone who gets it can take your place. Teen Titans and Batman are the only two things worth the time, and the fact that they now have to resort to sex is making me laugh. You raised your daughter right ?? I hope I can do the same someday, and make sure she knows what you do is much more important than how you look. Sex sells, and I don’t think the opinion of a seven-year-old is going to change that. Also, do these sexy illustrations in any way add to the “random emotionless amnesiac sex plot line”?
Starfire was a princess who’s planet got beaten in a war and sold into slavery, her sister tries out right to kill her several times.
The Comics may have had a teen rating, considering Marvel is rebooting comics (Look up the new wonder woman costume, which was toned down, given pants and covered up) and making them more appealing to older teens, geeks, and people that have been fans of the series for years. Don’t get me wrong, I loved the cartoon, but cartoons are easier to understand, and western cartoons are spaficly aimed and kids, (not saying your kid is dumb, or anything) Comics are usually harder, it takes me a few reads of one comic to under stand whats going on.
And… The comic book drawers, writers and artists ared different from the first they came in, new people are coming in (fans that got lucky in drawing their favourite heroes) and changing a lot, characters over the years have gotten so many reboots they need an offical tally. Basicly, Marvel comics, DC comics and pretty much most comics are not good for a seven year old to read unless it’s from a newpaper or a kids magazine. I think while some have pointed out that the comic in not necessarily meant for 7 years olds, I think it’s a question to ask: Is the objectification of females, women that are supposed to represent strength and fighting power, is turning them into lazy bikini posing models okay for any age?? I guess I feel like the thoughts from the 7 year old are more profound than something people are taking them. This is yet another example of women being objectified and not seen as people…Nancy Drew ended up with a bad make over as well.
The cover was pretty open in showing the characters are different from the show and Star’s outfit can be seen clearly.
With that in mind, their new line of clothing inspired by Guillermo Del Toro’s BOOK OF LIFE is just down right stunning.
We are dedicated to providing fresh daily news coverage, reviews, and original features regarding collectibles, toys, popular culture, and other awesomeness that matters. Gutierrez's compelling "Day of the Dead" illustrations have inspired a limited edition fashion line at Hot Topic. Before choosing which path to follow, he embarks on an incredible adventure that spans three fantastical worlds where he must face his greatest fears. My five kids started doing science projects in elementary school, where I was a Science Fair Coordinator for several years.
My husband, a biology professor, and I, an educator, developed each one in order to teach good science and yet also be fun and interesting to kids. So you might want to ask your kids if they have a question they are interested in exploring. By the way, professional scientists share their work in exactly the same way at scientific conferences! I encourage parents to use the same basic format that real scientists use on their posters (for our school science fair, I try to bring one of my husband's science posters to show). You can jot down anything you do, including notes you take in finding your topic as well as charts you keep while doing your experiment. You can also include color by putting your printed work on construction paper, colored cardstock or scrapbook paper. Following the procedures I've described above, both of my older children won at their school and regional every year they have competed. The judges do that work because they believe science fair is a way of encouraging kids to go into STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) careers. Their a€?topic selection wizarda€? allows you to answer a series of questions to help you narrow down projects your child would enjoy. Note: this is a company which does sell items for projects but most of the instructions on this page can be done with materials found at home or at the supermarket. I never did science fairs growing up by my oldest daughter wanted to enter this year and i didn't even know where to start!
The memoir is called I Hate Myselfie and will feature personal essays surrounding the YouTuber’s life to which fans and haters alike may ultimately relate. All 240 pages will cover very down-to-earth (and even serious) topics from the digital star’s experiences, like struggling with weight, growing up poor, and getting fired from his job at Jenny Craig for making YouTube videos. To prepare and gain ideas for his own publication, he read memoirs from comedians such as Tina Fey and Sarah Silverman. The Keywords imprint, a department of the larger publishing company, was started in conjunction with Hollywood talent agency UTA (that also reps Dawson) and focuses entirely on working with digital and YouTube stars and delivering print products to their fans. And furthermore, she bought them both with HER money: her allowance, birthday and Christmas money. She’s an alien new to the planet and maybe she doesn’t always say the right thing, or know the right thing to do. And sometimes she gets mad, but that’s okay because it’s okay to get mad when people are being mean. She’s helping the kids learn how to use their power and not be as sad because their friends died. I mean, grown ups can wear what they want, but…she’s not doing anything but wearing a tiny bikini to get attention.
Starfire is a character made long before the cartoon, along with the other characters they were reimaged to be shown on screen. You can see why it was toned down for cartoons, look into the other characters back stories, most of them are not pretty in the least. I wouldn’t be surprised in ten years that the comics will pick up again and would be siuted for seven years olds to read. I hope she continues to be this aware of society’s unhealthy sexualization of reality and am hopeful that she will not fall into the traps that diminish so many girls growing up. I was a rabid fan of The New Teen Titans in the 80s and adored Starfire for not being what she appeared to be. If a FRIDGING SEVEN YEAR OLD GIRL says that the way Starfire looks now in the new DC reboot is bad, and honestly doesn’t feel comfortable looking at her, DC is SERIOUSLY doing something wrong.

When I was seven or eight years old (I’m a teenager), I remember watching Teen Titans with my friends.
Tamaranians were created as a more or less hedonistic society, even back in the 80’s. It’s cool that someone took her and made her fit the younger audience, but a parent getting angry that a book kept its character as it was originally because a spin-off made her different is pretty unfair to the company. The film is rich with highly artistic and authentic graphics and characters that honor the colorful nature and tradition of Día de los Muertos. Parents panic and wonder what to do and sometimes schools don't provide very clear guidelines on what is expected.If you've never done a science fair project before, you might want to start with How to Teach Science Experiments to Children which includes directions for "Can this Boat Float' which is a great first science project for elementary school kids (and has lots of variations in case you have more than one child doing a project!). Moreover, I always include some variations of our project to spur you on to some creative ideas of projects you can do too. Or you might want to have them look at the list of questions below to come up with some ideas.
You can use the tri-fold science fair project boards available at craft stores or office supply stores, or make your own board using poster board or cardboard.
You can use color, bold fonts, and clip art, but remember to keep your poster very readable with the letters sized so that they can be read by a person standing a couple of feet away. I take a picture of all the materials they use as well as pictures of them doing the experiment. Check the requirements for your school, but generally the information on the poster can be hand written or typed.
Instead, each child is judge according to what is best about their project (thoughtful process, good scientific thinking, etc) and awarded a blue ribbon reflecting their achievement as well as a sheet of comments from the judge. While judges want to evaluate the students, they also generally want to encourage them and give them a chance to explain what they have done and what they have learned.
This site also rates projects by grade level and provides background scientific information as well as complete instructions for how to do the experiment.
Because many of the contributions come from 3rd party websites, the quality of the information can vary, but if you have an area you are interested in, you might want to check out the projects on this site for ideas. Unlike some of the other sites, this does not give full instructions for projects, but questions like, a€?Which type of paper makes the best paper airplane?a€? are fairly easy for students to do on their own. Watching our children go through the process from kindergarten to high school, my husband and I are sure it is. Here you'll find complete instructions for gum-chewing science fair projects, with photos and videos. From industry news, to web series reviews, to related events, and one heck of an Awards Show. If my 7-year-old can tell what you’ve done from looking at the pictures (there is no way I’m going to let her in on the whole emotionless random, amnesiac sex plot line) why can’t you see the problem here? Be sure that she checks out Magic Trixie, Zita the Spacegirl, the Amulet series, and Lunch Lady – all awesome comics, with strong young female characters. There are Teen Titans comics based off the show and are 100% clean as well as Tiny Titan comics which are for younger audiences who can’t read too well yet and are even cleaner. The more accurate statement is that the cartoon’s Kory was sexed-down to fit the younger audience. If you make your own board, you should probably make three separate pieces and use Duct Tape to hold them together so they will bend. Some students use stickers, colored paper or cut out letters to make their poster more attractive. Attach the printed information onto the colored paper with glue sticks or glue dots (glue dots can be found in hobby stores in the scrapbooking aisle). For most schools (and even our regional and state science fair in Texas), it is all right for parents to type up their childrena€™s notes or oral explanations of their projects; however, they should be sure that the child tells them what to write. The goal at this level is to teach students the process of science fair and encourage them to continue competing at the more advanced levels. Remember that the very best jobs are in the STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) areas and that doing a science project can encourage your kids to go on to a career in those areas. She had a blast and we then followed your guidelines for how to set up a poster and she just won first place at her science fair today!!! She buys superhero movies (we’ve managed to see all the major releases this year except Green Lantern and she’s loved them all.) She has a full-sized cardboard cut out of Spiderman guarding her bookshelf.
It’s so ridiculous that comic book artists still think this kind of objectification is fine! Also, your daughter is going to grow up to be a very smart, respectful, honorable, and sensible woman. The comics shouldn’t be getting any bad-talk for keeping her as she is because a new show re-invented her. Real scientists need to keep a bound and dated journal written in pen so that they can prove they really did the work and explain the steps they completed. If the rules from your school allow it, you can also bring some of the examples from your experiment to put in front of your poster if that is appropriate. Moreover, it is important to make sure that your child can explain everything they did to the judges. Truth is the show and the comic aren’t made by the same people, although there -are- Teen Titans comics based off the show. White glue can be used but it may make the paper wrinkle and it may not be possible to change anything.
Usually, I have my kids practice telling what they did to me and to their brother and sisters. When we should really be doing is trying to end war, rape and bring more and more discussion to the topic. Line them up on the board first before you stick them down so that you know you have enough room.
