Denise Welch might have turned 60 this summer but the Loose Women panellist sees no reason to start getting shy. It is five years since she slimmed down to a size 12, and to celebrate she has recreated her least favourite pre-diet bikini shot, posting “then and now” photos online. Now there isn’t a troll alive who can dent her body confidence. “If it embarrasses my boys, I’ll definitely still be doing it when I’m 90,” she says. The “it” in question? Baring all. And she doesn’t mean her soul. She says: “I don’t care about the knockers – no pun intended. I’m not going to have anyone tell me that I can’t wear a bikini at 60. I’ve got a wobbly arse, my boobs aren’t in the right place. “I’ve got bumps and lumps and a tummy and I’ve had two children. But I don’t look bad for an old bird. “I’m proud of how I look at 60 and I’m not trying to look 30. … [Read more...] about Denise Welch strips off and vows to continue wearing a bikini at 60 years old
KEIRA KNIGHTLEY says she won’t let her three-year-old daughter watch Disney’s Cinderella film because “she waits around for a rich guy to rescue her”. Sigh. Ms Knightley, who adds, “Rescue yourself,” clearly feels she is protecting daughter Edie by banning something that doesn’t concur with her own off-the-shelf, Poundland version of what feminism should be. But what she’s in danger of doing is wilfully nurturing a potential “snowflake” who, rather than develop the critical thinking skills that allow healthy debate, will simply stick their fingers in their ears and cry foul when they see or hear something that differs from their own world view. Keira, tonight’s homework is to really read (or watch) Cinderella and analyse it. Look past the Disney-esque cute rodents, pretty frocks and glass slippers and instead dig a little deeper to appreciate the original’s narrative of how hope can turn unjust oppression … [Read more...] about Keira Knightley is wrong to ban Disney’s Cinderella from three-year-old daughter — she was a girl on the ball

Like moths to a flame, curious and tech-savvy students have always pushed the limits of what educators deem ‘acceptable use’ of school technology. This is in no way a new phenomenon. We provide them with access to powerful, general-purpose computing devices, access to the internet, and time—and at younger and younger ages. They explore, tinker, make, express themselves, push back, pursue their interests, and act out. What’s different in recent years is that in doing the unexpected with school technology, students can affect not just their own education and that of their classmates, but the operations of entire school districts (and even far beyond). Schools and edtech vendors take (some) steps to secure their systems and limit student access to the more powerful administrative features of school technology devices and systems, but time and again and again students demonstrate their ability to circumvent these controls. When students break school rules related to … [Read more...] about When 12-Year-Olds Can Breach School IT Systems, Who’s Responsible?
