The boy who taught himself how to sew in order to give homeless youth better-looking clothes to wear. The pint-sized girl, bullied mercilessly in seventh and eighth grades, who then later created an app so kids can find someone to eat lunch with at school. A Girl Scout who loved her time at camp in the San Jacinto Mountains so much, she created a summer day camp for underprivileged children. And the artist whose Bat Mitzvah project blossomed into an ongoing series of art lessons for kids living in shelters. All four teens grew up in Southern California and are among a group of 15 from around the country to be awarded $36,000 each as 2018 recipients of the Diller Teen Tikkun Olam Awards.

Full metal jacket where are they now
R. Lee Ermey, the tough-talking Marine Corps sergeant turned actor best known for his role as a foul-mouthed Vietnam-era drill instructor in “Full Metal Jacket,” died Sunday from complications of pneumonia. He was 74. “He will be greatly missed by all of us,” his longtime manager, Bill Rogin, said in a statement. “Semper Fi, Gunny.

The rules have such longevity because most people like having guidance about how to dress, says Andrew Groves, who heads the University of Westminster's fashion department. "We all like to think we're individuals but rules give people a certain security when it comes to fashion." So are they arbitrary and outdated or do they still apply?1.
