Betsy DeVos is among the most celebrated individuals in the United States’ education sector. She has been pushing for reforms in the industry for more than three decades, and her efforts have benefited many children. Betsy has been serving as the U.S secretary of education since February 2017. She uses her position to ensure that all children across the country have a decent education. Before joining the Trump administration’s cabinet, she donated millions of dollars towards the transformation of the sector. Mrs. DeVos is a co-founder and chair of the Dick and Betsy DeVos Family Foundation. The organization was established to facilitate activities such as Christian missions, education, politics, and medical research. Betsy started engaging herself in politics when she was attending the Calvin College in the 1970s. She has always been as Republican Party supporter and has served as a party official for many years.
Mrs. DeVos realized that there was a need to change the U.S education system when she was serving the Potter’s House Christian School. The learning institution has been assisting individuals from disadvantaged families to access a decent education. Betsy gives donations to support its activities. She believes that all parents should have the upper hand making decisions on their children’s education. With help from different organizations, Mrs. DeVos has enabled many students to join learning institutions of their choice. The remarkable reputation that Betsy has built allowed her to be offered a position at the American Education Reform Council. She also made significant contributions to Children First America, which is recognized for its role in education reforms. Mrs. DeVos started the Great Lakes Education Project, which has supported changes in 17 states. Over 250,000 children have had an opportunity to attend 33 private-choice institutions that are funded by the government. She has also enabled more than 50,000 children to get bursaries and scholarship from Florida State’s tax credit.
Betsy’s campaign has been offering various alternatives that can enable children to have a better education. They include school vouchers, tax credits, magnet schools, digital learning, home schooling, and virtual schooling. According to her, all American children need to have equal opportunities to have a decent education despite where they live. The system currently allows children to enroll in schools depending on their ZIP codes, and this has denied bright children from low-income neighborhoods opportunities to attend better schools.The campaigns of Betsy DeVos have been supported by non-profit foundations such as All Children Matter, and the Alliance for School Choice. She is also the co-founder of a charter school that is known as West Michigan Aviation Academy. Mrs. DeVos also loves art and is the founder of ArtPrize, which offers a platform for talented individuals to benefit from their work.

Technological innovation has led to the creation of the internet. This is a network where people interact, share resources, and pass information. The whole world has adopted this network in the carrying out of nearly all activities. The internet is used for both official and entertainment purposes. Internet trends are being witnessed daily whereby people abruptly decide to do a particular activity through the internet. Some of these trends are very funny and entertaining. Here are three commonly viral items.
1. Sharing Funny Videos
The internet has various websites through which people can record, upload, and watch videos. Websites such as YouTube have enabled this service. Currently, people have adopted the trend of creating funny videos and sending them to other internet users. Whenever a person receives the video, he goes ahead and forwards it to another person. Within a short period, the video goes viral, and everybody gets it. However, not all videos shared are funny. Some are pranks and end with deadly results.
2. Sharing Funny Pictures and Photos
People frequently use social media websites to interact with each other. These websites are only accessed whenever a person accesses the internet. In these sites, people take, post, and share photos. Others create their photos through programs such as Photoshop. Whenever a funny picture is posted on a social site such as Facebook, people comment about the picture. The picture is forwarded to another social site whereby more people see it.
3. Sharing Jokes and Information
People to share jokes and information have used the internet as a medium of entertainment. In this case, one person can create a social site and share a joke. Other people will view the joke and pass it to others through the internet. Twitter has been the most successful in this area. A person creates a twitter handle and posts a joke or discussion. Other users of twitter view the information and tweet about it.
College student, Nick Luntz got a handwritten letter from his now ex- girlfriend. The University of Central Florida then decided to do a little prank. He took the letter and decided to proofread it for spelling and grammatical mistakes. He also annotated it and even gave his ex-girlfriend a letter grade for her apology letter to him.
Thinking it would be funny, Nick Luntz took a photograph of the letter and his corrections along with the grade he felt she deserved. He then posted him holding him up the letter with the corrections and grade on Twitter. The message and posting quickly went viral on Twitter. It was quickly retweeted over 100,000 times in a short span of time.
I must say that it is a very funny prank or joke to play on an ex-girlfriend. There was nothing mean or harmful done here. You are merely making fun of the spelling or grammatical mistakes that may have occurred during the writing of the letter. The internet seemed to agree with this sentiment and Nick quickly gained fame in the online and pranking world.
This joke did land college student Nick Luntz in some hot water however. His ex-girlfriend tried to file an online bullying complaint against her ex-boyfriend which was dismissed by the Volusia County Sheriff’s office. They correctly said that there was no damage done or any intention of damage. You cannot file charges against someone just because they offended you or made you feel uncomfortable. There were no threats or risks posed said the sheriff.
Not only did his ex-girlfriend not take the joke well, but Nick’s own college did not like it. They suspended him, but then readmitted him after an uproar. As an attorney for Nick Luntz said, the college violated his free speech and it has no business in policing activity that he does outside of the university.
You can’t afford to have a gloomy day if you have access to the internet. The web has turned into an entertainment hub. Just like any other community, the online community appreciates humor. Thanks to social media sites like Facebook, Reddit and Snapchat, it’s easy to spread hilarious content to a large audience. Currently, there are funny trends that have taken over the internet. These trends include YouTube pranks, challenges, GIFS and memes.
The BowWow Challenge
This is one of the most hilarious trends this year. It was a sarcastic response to a photo posted by American celebrity Bow Wow. The artist posted a picture of a private jet on SnapChat. The caption read, “Travel Day.” Judging from the post, he wanted his fans to believe that he was traveling by private jet. However, he was spotted on a commercial plane and a fan leaked a picture of him on the internet. Internet users began posting deceptive images with the hashtag “BowWowChallenge” on their captions.
President Donald Trump was made the subject of a series of funny memes that went viral. Well, Trump is around 6ft tall. Since he came into power, he has strongly fought against fake news. Early this year, he met with the Russian president, Vladimir Putin. People started posted memes showing President Trump as a tiny person, almost the knee-height of an adult. According to these memes, Donald Trump’s actual height is fake news!
The GIF Frenzy
GIF (graphical interface format images) have won the hearts of internet users this year. These kinds of images are similar to videos, except they’re very brief. The image contains a visual recording that is played over and over at certain intervals. It’s has become a viral trend as most people are converting funny one-liner jokes from TV shows into GIFs, and sharing them on various social media sites.
Most comedians have acknowledged that they can say anything that they wish to say through humor. The fact is that all of us are talking about similar things all the time. But very few of us can be funny while doing so. Hence such people can turn the sheer craziness of life into good comedy.
People feel that being responsible means being away from humor. But now they realize that it is possible to say anything they want to, through comedy.
There is no age for being funny. The sooner, the better it is. It has been seen that people tend to move away from humor as they get older. The fact remains that humor makes people happy and takes them away from their worries for some time. Besides, it keeps them physically fit and mentally relaxed too.
Leaders are held accountable for producing results for their customers. This means that they fail if their team fails to deliver. This can lead to a lot of friction between the team and its leader. Humor can be the bridge over here to remove this tension from any kind of unpleasant conversations that are bound to take place at some time. There can be consistent attempts at humor that can make it more enjoyable for everyone. It will also help to make the painful profit-focused tasks more tolerable for all.
Leaders are well aware that executing of business plans in an effective manner will require engaging in activities that tend to create animosity that would reflect animosity all the time. This is where humor can help to release tension in all kinds of business situations.
Good humor is when a person is self-aware. It means being comfortable with making fun of ourselves in order to light up the mood.
Since the internet began many years ago, and people started posting their videos and photos, internet trends would explode over night. One of the most famous internet trends that everyone has either done themselves, or at least heard about, is planking. This is essentially just laying face down on different surfaces acting like a plank. There was also the “what are those” trend which was people going around to strangers, pointing the camera at their shoes, and yelling “what are those!” The point is that an internet trend can literally be nothing one day, then the next day everyone is posting videos or pictures of them doing the same thing.
While the “what are those” trend is seemingly harmless, others are not. When planking was a trend, people would do it in dangerous places like the middle of the road, or on top of an open door. The internet’s most recent trend is no exception, and can be very dangerous for the sake of comedy. People have been posting videos of them on the golf course with some friends. It usually entails one of the members golfing or walking on the golf course, while a friend is recording a video of themselves driving a golf cart straight into their friend. This trend began when a verified Instagram account called “bestvines” posted a meme of a little girl driving an electric toy car over another young boy. This video was titled “Would you run over your friend for 2 million dollars?”
The internet is divided on whether they think this trend is funny or not. Some people are worried that it is too dangerous of a trend, and that it might go too far. Others are just excited to watch a new trend spread like wildfire on the internet, and enjoy the videos.
If you are someone that has listened to the music of 50 Cent in the past, this Jimmy Kimmel video will put a smile on your face. This viral sensation recently became very popular online because it offered an interesting and unique concept that included people being asked for their honest opinion about where they would rank 50 cent compared to other Rap artists. When they answered the question, they were facing the camera and their attention was being focused on the person conducting the interview. However, positioned just behind their head was 50 Cent waiting for them to turn around and take note of him standing there. This made for a lot of humorous situations when the person indicated that they did not think 50 Cent should be considered the best Rap artist of all time. When they turned around, 50 would pretend to be offended by the comments and this would lead to an interesting confrontation. This video is not only relevant to fans of the Rap artist, but society as a whole and how we communicate with each other.
Typically, people are more comfortable sharing their honest thoughts about someone when they do not have to worry about potentially having problems with them as a result. There are probably many times when you did not share an honest opinion with a friend in an effort to protect their feelings. This viral video does a great job of bringing that tendency that people have forward. When someone is asked about their true feelings attached to the quality of 50 Cent music, they have very little idea that he is anywhere close to them. In fact, there are a few people that alter their statements once they discover that he is within reach. View this video and put a smile on your face in no time.
Robots have been a fascination of people for decades ever since the first Science fiction author came up with the idea. This latest internet meme plays into that idea. On July 14th, product manager Bilal Farooqi, posted an image on Twitter of a robot that appeared to have drowned itself. While no one from the company that created the robot, Knightscope, was able to provide an explanation for the apparent suicide, instead simply saying that it was an “isolated incident” and it was under investigation, many of Farooqi’s twitter followers and social media commentators had plenty of ideas.
Fans of the Hitchhiker’s Galaxy were particularly affluent, as the security robot, which was designed to look a bit like the depressed robot Marvin as depicted in thehttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9JubaAS1v-w. Many Twitter users posted quotes from the movie or wondered if it had been read Vogon poetry, which for the uninitiated is another reference to the book, movie, tv, and radio series.
As the photo began to go viral other people pointed out that Marvin is not the only depressed or suicidal robot out there. People posted a number jokes, included several Daleks who inexplicably fell off cliffs, and of course, Bender the suicidal robot from Futurama made an appearance. Buzzfeed even posted an article featuring the some of the best of these tweets.
But among all these jokes and tweets, no one was able to come up with a reason why the robot committed suicide. Was it simply bored, as such a high-end security robot that is able to prevent crimes and save lives probably didn’t have much to do in the relatively safe DC Harbour office building where Farooqi worked? Maybe it wasn’t suicide, and Knightscope’s tight lips are because of a cover-up, rather than just a lack of information. We may never know, but at least we can have a few minutes of fun at this robots expense.
