Will Charter Schools Replace Public Schools?

Parents who have been on the look out for a superior education for their children may not have to work so hard to get his or her children enrolled in a charter school.

Shirtless Congressman? Does Justin Amash Know About This?

Our West Michigan congressman, Justin Amash has drawn a lot of attention for being the second youngest person in Congress, along with his use of social media to explain his positions on the issues.

Look what Congress' youngest member is up to.

Rep. Aaron Schock of Illinois is now poised to get the vote of every woman in America thanks to a new spread in Men's Health, in which our nation's youngest congressman can be seen posing shirtless.

But before you accuse him of trying to advance his celebrity, the 29-year-old hunk is actually doing it for a cause.

Schock has teamed with the magazine, who naturally dubbed him "America's Fittest Congressman," on its Fit for Life Summer Challenge, a campaign designed to help Americans lose weight and get in shape by Labor Day.

Salute Our Troops With A ‘Thank You!’ [VIDEO]

I'm ashamed to admit that I have responded the same way that the woman, in the video you're about to see, responded when she saw a group of soldiers at the airport.

By the end of this must see clip, I was in tears and convicted to learn how to say 'thank you' in sign language!  I am and always have been proud of our military.

Sure, President Barack Obama took down the most wanted terrorist in the world this week, but it looks like wife Michelle has some pretty slick moves of her own.

While promoting her Let's Move campaign Tuesday, which aims to fight childhood obesity, the First Lady took part in a flash workout to Beyonce's 'Move Your Body,' in which she showed off her ability to do the Dougie and the Running Man (pretty well, I might add).

Check out the fun video after the jump, then relive Beyonce's dance-tastic music video.
