Standard
Original air date: Monday, December 15, 2014

Malayna and Stacy are going to look back at the past year in pop culture to mine it for gems of insight! We’ll look at the trends, events, and highlights, and maybe even provide some follow-ups on past guests.

  • The month of January was named after Janus for his ability to turn one face to reflect upon the past and a yet another face freshly pointed upon the future…. Janus, with all his hindsight and foresight opens doors of both reflection of our past and contemplation of our future.
  • In essence, the god Janus is kind of a bellhop or doorman for the mansions within our soul.

  • Wiki – aperire, “to open”, in allusion to its being the season when trees and flowers begin to “open”, which is supported by comparison with the modern Greek use of ἁνοιξις (anoixis) (opening) for spring. Since some of the Roman months were named in honor of divinities, and as April was sacred to the goddess Venus, her Veneralia being held on the first day, it has been suggested that Aprilis was originally her month Aphrilis, from her equivalent Greek goddess name Aphrodite

KelseyTimmerman.com – White House! * UnityGlobalInitiativeScholarship.org * GlobalCitizenYear.org

This past Tuesday I had the best excuse to turn down any and all meeting requests — “Sorry, I’ve got a meeting at the White House.”

The White House invited 100 travel bloggers to begin a dialog on how to increase the amount of students who study abroad. While 50% of students enter college with the desire to study abroad only 10% actually do. And of that 10% most are white and most go to Europe.

The administration made the case that getting Americans, especially young Americans, out into the world is a matter of national security and economic strength.
