Studies have shown kids have a greater chance for lifelong success if they know how to read by the third grade. Read to your kids often, donate your unused books to your local library or even volunteer to read to a class. We can’t do too much. #LiteracyDay
Reading is one of my favorite pastimes and Moby Dick is not only a literary masterpiece but it was, in my opinion, one of the best film adaptations of a book. What book would you recommend? #ReadABookDay
Indonesia’s Komodo Island is expected to be handed back to the dragons.
. Following a boom in tourism, the country has decided to close Komodo Island to the public for one year in 2020, to allow for the recovery of the world’s largest living lizard's habitat and to protect the species. . But the move comes at the expense of the local residents who share the island with the Komodo dragon. . Back in 2010, Al Jazeera met the Komodo dragon. Follow the link in their profile to watch the report. .
Wow I was just nominated for FIVE People’s Choice Awards.
I think 🤔 it’s a new personal record.
Always shake my head and smile at stuff like this, as my focus is always about putting in the work to deliver for the people.
Never expect it, but if it happens I also never take it for granted cos it’s pretty damn cool 😎✊🏾
Thank you everyone!!
This is much more than @underarmour’s #1 selling collection.
Much more than slapping some shit on a t-shirt and selling it.
This is my life.
And the #IronWill it takes to show up daily when it’s You vs You.
Many of you know this gospel and proudly live it.
@projectrock drops it’s new @underarmour collection in ONE WEEK.
Wow...Reach for what you want in life and take it! This is amazing @miguelhta!!
“A year ago I started a dream - project to make low-cost prostheses for children. Today, thanks to those who believed in the project, we tried the first one.”
So much to tell you... so much to share... as you know, we have been filming in Scotland. We threw a party for the crew last night in appreciation for all of their hard work. It was one of those moments that so often in the past we were together smiling and getting everyone drunk, especially Justin. Haha. Who by the way would make you so proud with what he is accomplishing with this film. Nathalie was there, in her loving spirit. Oh, and John Cena was there, who you would just love. His gratitude is palpable... and knowing you, you would just want him to win. This week the studio came to meet about the next chapter, your ears were ringing again. You would have gotten a kick out of the fact that we met in a chapel. It was profound... normally today I would be planning how to embarrass you with a birthday cake. Haha. Instead I reflect on how lucky I am to call you my brother. The tears never go away, but they change... from that of mourning to that of grace. We only hope to make you proud. Speaking of which, guess what message I woke up to... your daughter. Meadow sending me love on this day. Wow, she knows me so well. She has your heart. Happy birthday... it’s amazing, but somehow you continue to make the world a better place.
Receiving the Order of Australia is a HUGE deal. And despite what I tell anyone who’ll listen, Hugh Jackman is one of the finest, kindest, hardest working, generous and most talented people I’ve had the privilege to call my friend. There’s nobody better. None of this changes the unfortunate fact he’s a complete bastard. 🇦🇺
On this occasion, I am reminded that I share the incredible honor with my parents, my siblings, my friends and, especially, with Deb, Oscar and Ava. There are countless teachers, coaches and mentors who have taught and inspired me along the way. I will forever be in their debt. It is humbling to be amongst so many great Australians who have outstanding achievements in so many fields. Thank you to the Governor General.
The great Italian summer road trip was made fantastically easy thanks to the loan of this #ClasseV by @mercedesbenz . Handled the dusty dirt roads of Tuscany, the mad high speed tail-gaters on the Autostrada, the high passes of the Dolomiti, South Tyrol and Alps, packed with kids in car seats, piles of luggage & room to spare for friends. Brilliantly set up for fun. Wish we had these in the US. Sincere thanks to the lovely Benz team for letting us road test the #NewVClass Made us feel like locals for a while!
