The Girl Scouts of America pelage is as follows “On my honor, I will try: To serve God and my country, To help people at all times, And to live by the Girl Scout Law. Girl Scout Law: I will do my best to be honest and fair, friendly and helpful, considerate and caring, courageous and strong, and responsible for what I say and do, and to respect myself and others, respect authority, use resources wisely, make the world a better place, and be a sister to every Girl Scout."
“No matter where you live, if your children go to public schools, the textbooks they use were very possibly written under Texas influence. If they graduated with a reflexive suspicion of the concept of separation of church and state and an unexpected interest in the contributions of the National Rifle Association to American history, you know who to blame." - The New York Review of Books
“The Roman philosopher Seneca may have put it best 2,000 years ago: "To be everywhere is to be nowhere." Today, the Internet grants us easy access to unprecedented amounts of information. But a growing body of scientific evidence suggests that the Net, with its constant distractions and interruptions, is also turning us into scattered and superficial thinkers.
He reached for his cellphone and sent a photograph of the caption to his mother, Roni Dean-Burren, along with a text message: “we was real hard workers, wasn’t we.” Their outrage over the textbook’s handling of the nation’s history of African-American slavery — another page referred to Europeans coming to America as “indentured servants” but did not describe Africans the same way — touched off a social-media storm that led the book’s publisher, McGraw-Hill Education, to vow to change the wording and the school’s teachers to use other materials in the class (see video).”
The picture emerging from the research is deeply troubling, at least to anyone who values the depth, rather than just the velocity, of human thought. People who read text studded with links, the studies show, comprehend less than those who read traditional linear text. People who watch busy multimedia presentations remember less than those who take in information in a more sedate and focused manner. People who are continually distracted by emails, alerts and other messages understand less than those who are able to concentrate. And people who juggle many tasks are less creative and less productive than those who do one thing at a time.” – Dr. Nicolas Carr June 5, 2010 The Wall Street Journal

Social media is dominating most of our attention throughout the day. Yet, is it truly changing our face-to-face relationships? In the adjacent video Dr. Dan Siegel, clinical professor of psychiatry at the UCLA School of Medicine reveals how social media is actually physically rewiring our brains.
NEW YORK TIMES - HOUSTON — Coby Burren, 15, a freshman at a suburban high school south of here, was reading the textbook in his geography class last week when a map of the United States caught his attention. On Page 126, a caption in a section about immigration referred to Africans brought to American plantations between the 1500s and 1800s as “workers” rather than slaves.
"Scientists claim to have found a gene responsible for internet addiction, which is also involved in nicotine addiction." -Stephen Adams Daily Telegraph's Medical Correspondent
As seen in the adjacent video "5 Crazy Ways Social Media Is Changing Your Brain Right Now" it turns out, using social media can literally be addictive, because it provides immediate reward with very little effort.

Our question is why isn’t the generation of “women” that are the mothers of these young girls being considered as being “influenced” by such programming after all they are allowing their children to watch this type of epi programming or at the very less did not instill the moral values that this type of thinking and realty television is wrong. We also notice the statement at the bottom of the TV screen “Reality TV may be negatively influencing teen views” One again those words “may be” is it not obvious? Also talk about a contradiction in terms, if you go to the Girl Scout web site they make the following claim,.
“The Girl Scout Impact Study (2017) This summary of findings, which draws on data from a nationally representative sample of Girl Scouts and non-Girl Scouts aged 5-18, shows that Girl Scouts are more likely than non-Girl Scouts to develop strong leadership outcomes, have adults in their lives who help them think about their future and pursue goals, and participate in activities that shape their character and open up new worlds to them.”
“First, textbook publishers and authors seem to have little appreciation of how students learn.” - U.S. National Library of Medicine
“The brain created social media and social media shapes the brain” - Dr. Dan Siegel UCLA School of Medicine
This means our brain starts to rewire itself and makes us crave more social media stimulation, to the point that five to 10 percent of internet users report they can’t control how much time they spend online. Brain scans have also revealed that talking about ourselves and our opinions on social media can trigger the parts of the brain involved in orgasms, motivation and love.
What is interesting about the Girl Scouts pelage is not only is it contradictory but the adjacent Fox news video statement “How reality (TV) maybe influencing the next generation of America women” sounds naïve to us.
