Battle for Terra movie contest

The movie Battle for Terra is coming out this Friday. It's an animated film about an alien world that humans invade when our own planet is destroyed by our excesses. The movie is really only for ages 10 or 12 and up because of some complex themes (and decisions characters have to make that I didn't want my 7-year-old to think about), but it's beautifully designed and the story is a twist on the classic "alien invasion" theme.

They're running a contest for 3rd to 8th graders with a grand prize of a California community service adventure on the website here. It looks like a very cool prize, so if you have older kids who are interested in animated action movies and conservation, check out the movie and the contest.

  1. It’s always nice to see money being given to a good cause by the very wealthy. No doubt cynics will say it’s for tax purposes rather than him doing it out the goodness of his heart, but does it matter as long as the kids get the benefit? I don’t think it does.

  2. This is really inreiesttng.I heard the phrase full-term breastfeeding very recently and I thought, ah! That’s perfect! The only reason you’d need a term such as extended nursing or full-term nursing is if you write and talk about nursing a lot which I do.The reason I love full-term breastfeeding) is because it implies doing something to completion you nurse your child until you and your child have completed your nursing relationship. The fact that that amount of time in undefined is very apropos of the unique nature of each nursing relationship.I love how, unlike extended nursing (the term I’ve been using to talk about nursing my pre-schooler (three and a half, doesn’t toddle) suggests I’m doing something aberrant or extreme. Full-term nursing seems to normalize child-led weaning in a way I like.Conjuring the opposite of full-term I don’t have a women who don’t nurse to full-term are bad mommies gut reaction. Rather I think that it implies that some obstacle or another has prevented the nursing relationship from coming to full-term completion. In my experience, that’s usually true. Usually it’s a husband pressuring his wife to quit because either he thinks nursing a pre-schooler is kind of icky or he wants his sex-life back the way it was before. (Good luck, buddy!) I guess I’m interested in drawing attention to the obstacles that prevent full-term breastfeeding is why I like it. I’m not interested in pointing my fingers at moms and crying J’accuse! if they wean for whatever reason, so my mind just doesn’t go there..-= Betsy s last blog .. =-.
