“Philip’s stories have a beginning, a middle and an end. There is a plot, and the music we have written fits to the second with the images. What you see happening on screen, you hear in the music and vice versa.” #BrusselsJazzOrchestra http://bit.ly/1EdUyhu
Brussels Jazz Orchestra, which co-performed the music for the Oscar-winning best picture “The Artist,” will pay its first visit to Eisenhower Auditorium at 7:30 p.m. on March 19 to perform some of the best songs by its musicians plus a work that marries big band music and graphic stories.

"Out first core value is to have a positive attitude." -- Penn State football coach, James Franklin at his #TEDxPSU talk this past Sunday. #TEDTalks #TEDx http://bit.ly/1aIEzNy
"Our first core value is to have a positive attitude. Again, really simplistic. Really simplistic. That's something that we can control. We talk about controlling the controllable -- waking up every single morning with a positive attitude and being really appreciative of the opportunity we have at Penn State. We talk about waking up in the morning and doing a back handspring out of bed, ready to attack the day with everything you have."

A new study, co-authored by Penn State distinguished professor of HDFS Steven Zarit, may help adult children and their parents have more constructive conversations. The researchers interviewed 189 pairs of middle-age adults and their parents to find out how often adult children perceive their parents as acting as stubborn, compared to how often parents see this behavior in themselves. http://bit.ly/1DNYPI7

One day, Susan Burgart decided to take her knitting supplies with her to the Boys and Girls Club, where she was volunteering with the Optimist Club to help children with their homework. The inspiration of her Penn State education keeps Burgart and her friends returning each week to three different sites in Atlanta to teach children the art of knitting. http://bit.ly/1L6Bimd
There is something about seeing a child’s face light up when he or she learns something new. That “something” is what inspires Susan Burgart Frierson, who graduated from Penn State with a bachelor of science degree in home economics education in 1962. The inspiration keeps Burgart and her friends returning each week to three different sites in Atlanta to teach children the art of knitting.

Happy 50th anniversary, #WPSU http://bit.ly/1DPymsS
Fifty years ago, WPSU-TV went on the air for the first time. Students and teachers who turned on their televisions for the initial broadcast watched “Saludos Amigos,” an introductory Spanish class aimed at schoolchildren across central Pennsylvania.

“Many of the existing strategies we use to modify people’s behavior, such as reminding them to eat more fruits and vegetables, aren’t working. Games are a promising approach with kids, so we want to see if it’s effective in teaching them healthy habits early.” http://bit.ly/1zkSY83
A group of Penn State researchers is exploring how a digital game could help children learn skills to prevent childhood obesity.
