+The New York Times on +Taylor Swift's #1989WorldTour. 
"But her between-song chatter, always inspirational, now carries the weight of experience."

#TS1989 
With the release of the album in the fall, the singer neatly ascended to the top of the pop hierarchy. Her new tour proves that she has successfully remade herself.

"These words made me resent my mother and father's failure to see value in what I was doing in life."
Asians are more than just good at math or academically smart. And those should not be the labels that we use to describe Asians. We are a lot more than just that and are not all born "smart."

Asians and Asian-Americans are just like everyone else of whatever race. We have different strengths and excel at various aspects of life. We should not create or hold false standards of Asians, such as always getting good grades, much less compare an entire class of people with that of another. America is the world's leader because it embraces, and celebrates, the difference of every individual. It focuses on creativity and innovation, on real-life experiences and taking big risks (and not always necessarily succeeding). That is what we should strive for.

#asIANs 
The positioning by some of Asian-Americans as a "model minority" that African-Americans should emulate is a mistake.

+Joren Van Severen That's very interesting. Chinese is definitely a hard language to nail down. And I completely agree with that analogy. Besides, I don't think a harder language would mean they're smarter in all types of things. So yup, definitely see what you are saying!

Sapporo is a unique Japanese restaurant in Scottsdale that has a wide selection of choices for lunch and dinner. *FOOD* Absolutely fantastic! Whether it is lunch or dinner, they have tasty choices. The appetizer ribs are heaven and taste delicious. They have a special type of sauce that makes it perfect. The fried calamari is crunchy and one of the best that I've had in the Scottsdale area. Again, they have a special type of dipping sauce that tops it all off. There are also tons of sushi and even some that aren't listed on the menu, so be sure to ask! Everything there is amazingly fresh and the food doesn't take too long to come. One plate comes after the other! *DECOR* Sapporo has a big restaurant and it feels very spacious. There are 6 teppans, like Beninhana if that's your thing. The rest of the restaurant, in the middle of the 6 teppans, consists of tables and booths, both very comfortable to stay in for a couple hours. The furniture and other decor is modern and new, especially with the atmosphere, which is very upbeat. There is loud and recent music that plays. It makes everyone want to get up and dance. *SERVICE* The waiters and waitresses always have a smile on their face. Our waiter made many jokes while he was serving us and made the experience great. This isn't the only time the waiter has made us smile. Most of the food comes out pretty quickly. However, when it is very busy, it may take a little while longer. It's always good to call ahead to try and make a reservation, if for dinner. If they're having a slow night, they'll let you know and say that a reservation isn't necessary! Lunch is a lot more peaceful and the music is not as loud, along with quieter chatter.

The food tastes fantastic and the fries are super crunchy and fresh every time! The restaurant is a little outdated and smells funky occasionally.

The food at Wildflower Bread Company is amazing. There are a lot of healthy selections to choose from, that are also tasty as well. My personal favorite is the Asian Chicken Salad, but the sandwiches are great too. The setting is awesome. It is very open and spacious. The middle of the restaurant has several couch chair type things which are great and comfortable to sit on while waiting for friends. I don't know how they do what they do. You order and they magically find you by finding your card that's on the table. No matter where you sit, they'll find you. The food usually comes very quickly. If going at lunchtime on weekends, it may be hard to find seats at first, but there are also great seats outside, in the shade. The staff is friendly and will accomodate you with whatever you need.

It gets very busy on Friday and Saturday nights, especially when there are sports games! So make sure you want to wait, or get their a little bit early, unless you're there to watch. This can also make for slow service at times, but they try their best! The atmosphere is great, everybody's dining and having a great time! Make sure to try the Zipps or Golden Wings. They're delicious and cooked just right so that the outside is crispy.
