Kanye West Power Preveiw

. This kinda production money is only reserved for TV 30 second commercials around SuperBowl time or 2 hour long Tyler Perry movies. But if your gonna go big, this is the way to do it. I think it's GAW-jus, visually, it was the best one minute forty-two-seconds of my day... except when I'm looking at you Boo... you know who you are. (wink)

Inception New Posters

Warner Brothers releases new banner art that gives a few clues about the mysterious summer blockbuster
Buzz up!

Warner Brothers has been trying to keep a tight lid on "Inception," in an effort to protect some of the film's secrets before its July release. New character art released on Tuesday, however, gives away a few plot points. From the trailer, it seems that the movie centers on a team of thieves who steal ideas from people's dreams, something confirmed by the new art. Over pictures of stars Leonardo DiCaprio, Marion Cotillard, and Ellen Page are tags such as "the extractor" and "the architect." What does it all mean?

Spell Bots

All-girl, All-African American Robotics team is breaking barriers from Mari Fagel on Vimeo.

President Barack Obama has said it’s his priority to bring American students to the top of the pack in science and math achievement. However, African-American students, and girls in particular, are still falling behind. According to the U.S. Department of Education, African American students are five times less likely to be college-ready in science and math than white students upon completion of high school.

Yet an all-girl, all-African-American robotics team from Spellman College in Atlanta is breaking that stereotype. The SpelBots have competed in robotics championships around the world and they’re proving that African-American women can also become computer scientists.

On Wednesday, the team visited Howard University Middle School of Math and Science in Washington as part of the first-ever National Lab Day. The nation-wide event was created to raise awareness about the importance of math and science education. The team met with the school’s brand-new all-girls robotics team to teach them a few tricks and inspire them to follow in their footsteps.
