Join NHTSA's Twitter Chat to spread the word about Tweens and seat belts - March 12

Parenting a tween involves compromise. But here’s one rule that’s not up for debate – the car doesn’t move until everyone is wearing a seat belt. If you say it, and if parents buckle up themselves, your tween will buckle up. And if they don’t, that’s a fight worth having. It might just save your tween’s life.
Over the past 5 years, 1,609 kids ages 8-14 were not wearing seat belts when they died in a crash - one in four were age 14. As children get older they’re less likely to buckle up. Our “Never Give Up Until They Buckle Up” campaign aims to put an end to this trend – but NHTSA needs your help.
On March 12, NHTSA will hold a Never Give Up Until They Buckle Up Twitter Chat to help spread the word to parents about the need to wear seat belts. During the chat you can question NHTSA experts, engage with your followers, and help ensure that tweens grow up to become young adults and safe drivers. We’ll also have terrific videos, banners, and other tools you can use to spread this lifesaving message far and wide.
Who: NHTSA and Our Team of Experts
What: Tween “Never Give Up Until They Buckle Up” Twitter Chat (follow along at #kidsbuckleup  and #tweens)
When: Thursday, March 12, 3-4pm Eastern
How: Use hashtags #kidsbuckleup and #tweens when the chat is about to start to join in the conversation. Feel free to mention @NHTSAGov in any of your tweets and NHTSA will get back to as many of your questions or comments as they can! Remember to include the hashtags #kidsbuckleup and #tweens in your comments so others can follow the conversation.
 Let your friends  know the dangers of failing to wear a seat belt and that parents are an essential part of protecting their kids by insisting on seat belt use at all times and by sending the right message by always wearing seat belts themselves 

Drift Stealth 2 / Portrait of a Writer: Josephine Cruz

twenty2b have teamed up with sponsor Drift Innovation to nominate inspiring women from all over the world to tell their stories with a Drift Stealth 2 wearable camera for their initiative, ‘The Portrait Project’. This week’s portrait shows the world what inspires freelance writer, Josephine Cruz who started her career at the tender age of 12 and has since contributed to Vice Magazine, Complex Magazine, and ‘Chicken Soup for The Soul’ to name a few. 

 This segment of #ThePortraitProject gives us a never before seen look at the life of a lover for the written word. Josephine Cruz uses her Drift Stealth 2 wearable camera to give a glimpse of the late nights and early mornings involved with being a writer as well as the constant need to produce excellence in her work. “I think you have to do what you love to do in life because it is such an uphill battle you might as well spend it fighting for something you believe in,” says Josephine.

 Every other Tuesday ‘The Portrait Project’ will be releasing a short two-minute mini doc visually portraying the career, thoughts, and life of an inspiring 21st century woman who has been nominated to show the world what keeps her going.

Inside the November 2014 Issue of Better Homes and Gardens Magazine

Take a look at the November 2014 Issue of Better Homes and Gardens Magazine, on newsstands Oct. 21. 

Your Thanksgiving Weekend Survival Guide, Party Ideas for Autumn Afternoons, Edible Gifts for the Season, Easy and Delicious Pumpkin Recipes, plus…The Totally Make-Ahead Thanksgiving Dinner Plan

A Totally Make-Ahead, Thoroughly Modern Thanksgiving (Page 106): Let this Thanksgiving be your most delicious yet - with an extra side of stress-free. Recipes like maple sage turkey, cream cheese mashers with kale pesto, garlic rosemary dressing or sweet potato cauliflower fritters might sound complicated – but we’ll let you in on a little secret. These delicious dishes and more can be made anywhere from a day, to a week, to a whole month in advance. Faith Durand, make-ahead master and editor of thekitchn.com, refreshes the menu and shares the tips and tricks that make it possible.


Serve Up Thanksgiving Weekend (Page 55): Thanksgiving isn’t just about dinner - there’s a long weekend of togetherness to be had. Start by creating the perfect guest room with the coziness of home and the conveniences of a five-star hotel. Turn to-do lists into assignments for kids to make set-up simple and keep everyone busy. Serve up a buffet of activity options on game day – like puzzles, trivia, and board games - for even non-sports fans to enjoy. Make the most of your leftovers with our twists on turkey sandwiches, frittata recipes, and back seat eats to send with guests on the road. Our family activities and hosting strategies will make your holiday weekend manageable, memorable, and most of all, fun!

Easy Holiday Baking (Page 154): Pumpkin season has arrived, and we can’t get enough. Blogger Joy the Baker spotlights the canned good that keeps on giving with a delectable collection of treats all made from your pantry shelves. Whip up mouth-watering recipes like pumpkin pie with pecan praline topping, salted pumpkin caramel thumbprints, dark chocolate and pumpkin swirl loaf, and pumpkin bars with marcona almonds.

Make and Share (Page 86): Share homemade deliciousness all season long with a few simple gifts you can make in a pinch. Toasted sea salt in a mason jar looks gourmet – but takes minutes to make and requires just a few pantry staples. Accompaniments like herbed nuts in honey or spiced bourbon cherries pair well with appetizers – and easy-to-make syrups like candied ginger, pomegranate-herb, or vanilla-jalapeno varieties can be bottled for cocktail mixers. Add glass jar containers, handwritten tags, a ribbon or kitchen string – and these homemade gifts will look almost too pretty to eat.

Harvest Cheese & Cider Tasting (Page 17): What’s the best recipe for a delicious autumn afternoon? Good friends, a table full of cheese, and a few crisp ciders to pair. Create a casual affair where guests feel comfortable trying a little bit of everything. Place clip-on blackboard signs on a cheese board to let friends know what they’re tasting. Accompany cheese with toppers like chutney, jam or honey that guests can pair with crackers. Pick your ciders wisely, and mix up house specialties like popcorn tossed with dried blueberries, cranberries, roasted hazelnuts, and powdered blue cheese. Artisanal cheese maker and co-owner of Rogue Creamery, David Grimmels, shows us how to set the scene.
