Malala Yousafzai, the Pakistani teen who was attacked by Taliban militants for promoting education for girls, will share the 2014 Nobel Peace Prize with Kailash Satyarthi, an Indian campaigner against exploitation of children.

The Norwegian Nobel Committee says on Nobelprize.org:

"Showing great personal courage, Kailash Satyarthi, maintaining Gandhi’s tradition, has headed various forms of protests and demonstrations, all peaceful, focusing on the grave exploitation of children for financial gain. He has also contributed to the development of important international conventions on children’s rights.

"Despite her youth, Malala Yousafzai has already fought for several years for the right of girls to education, and has shown by example that children and young people, too, can contribute to improving their own situations. This she has done under the most dangerous circumstances. Through her heroic struggle she has become a leading spokesperson for girls’ rights to education."

11th-grader Caitlin took a stand against bullying — and her school punished her for it 

Caitlin Prater-Haacke, an 11th-grader at George McDougall High School, was bullied last month when someone broke into her locker and used her iPad to post a message on her Facebook account, telling her to kill herself. Though she was upset by the incident, Prater-Haacke decided to use her experience to help others.

On Monday, Prater-Haacke wrote positive messages on 850 Post-it notes — saying such things as “You’re awesome” and “You’re beautiful” — and posted them on every single locker in the school.

The school didn’t like this very much | Follow micdotcom

Pusheen the cat making some chemistry.

That cat is not wearing safety goggles, he hasn’t even bothered to clean up that spilled solvent, and he is holding that Erlenmeyer flask way too close to his face.

Pusheen the Cat, more like Pusheen the limits of lab safety
