Daily News Roundup

Goody Blog Daily News RoundupSchools get shortchanged in Federal Impact Aid
When a large military installation takes place, it can put on a huge strain school district that has limited financial resources. Those districts suffer when they don’t get the full amount they’re entitled to under a 60-year-old federal program designed to ease the burden of having military bases or tribal reservations that pay no local property taxes within the districts’ borders, yet send hundreds of students to their schools. The aid goes to school districts to make up for untaxed Indian lands, military installations, public housing and national parks, says John Forkenbrock, executive director of the National Association of Federally Impacted Schools. Unfortunatley, Congress hasn’t fully funded the program since 1969. (USA Today)

Early childhood education benefits both kids, taxpayers, study says

Investing in early childhood education can yield impressive economic benefits — both for children and taxpayers, according to a National Institutes of Health study that followed participants until age 26. Each dollar spent on Chicago-based, federally funded Child-Parent Centers generates $4 to $11 in return, both because children finished high school or college, earning more than their peers, and also because participants were less likely to be held back, arrested, depressed, involved with drugs or sick, the study says.

Teenagers, Friends and Bad Decisions
In studies at Temple University, psychologists used functional magnetic resonance imaging scans on 40 teenagers and adults to determine if there are differences in brain activity when adolescents are alone versus with their friends. The findings suggest that teenage peer pressure has a distinct effect on brain signals involving risk and reward, helping to explain why young people are more likely to misbehave and take risks when their friends are watching.

Bite-Sized Bliss

Monday, November 30th, 2009

6a00d8341c30cf53ef0120a6d23e40970b-250wiI have a huge sweet tooth, but I have an even larger sweet and salty tooth. Which is why I knew I was in for a new addiction when a box of Chipn’etzel cookies landed on my desk. The bite-sized treats have pieces of pretzel and potato chips mixed in with them, and are hand-dipped in dark or white chocolate. The result is a dangerously delightful mixture of sweet and savory that will have you reaching for another…and another… If you’re a fan of chocolate covered pretzels, these crunchy cookies are for you. They might just become my go-to gift for holiday parties this year. Because if you can’t fight the addiction, spread it, right?

Perfect Christmas Cookies

Wednesday, November 28th, 2007

For years I’ve been making butter cookies at Christmas with an old twist-down cookie press of my grandmother’s that killed my hand. Sorry, Grandma, but last weekend I walked out of Bed, Bath and Beyond with an upgrade: the Wilton Pro II Ultra Cookie Gun. You just squeeze the trigger and boom—a perfectly formed cookie every time. It comes with a gazillion fun inserts, and there’s even a few that let you make teeny weeny bite-sized cookies.

Gotta Have Sweets

Thursday, February 22nd, 2007

Cookies (among other sweets like cupcakes!) are absolutely my downfall. Show me one (or two or three) of these sweet treats and I’m putty in your hands! While I love ‘em, it’s really not wise to eat them too often. If your kids crave cookies like me, it might be a good idea to pick up these adorable felt Sweetie Pie’s Sugar Cookies from Nico & Zoe. (Thank you baby gadget for spotting them first!). They’re hand made from felt and sprinkled with sparkly little beads. And don’t get me started on the jar they come in, so very cute! Just think of how fun they’ll be to play with at your child’s next tea party!
