Education and Graduation Feature Package

1. Slingbox Makes Perfect Gifts For Grads And Dads

FOSTER CITY, Calif., April 16, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Just in time for graduation season and Father's Day, Sling Media has the ideal gifts for on-the-go dads and graduating students heading to college or setting off on their own: the Slingbox 500 and Slingbox 350.

2. A Crisis of Confidence to Succeed

IRVING, Texas, April 16, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Literacy matters. Reading, writing, and speaking intersect with everything in life: character development, emotional intelligence, and physical fitness. Reading is essential for successful brain development in children, and stories help build character and emotional development. There are few career areas in which literacy skills—reading, writing, critical thinking, articulation of positions in words, and even anecdotal storytelling—are not essential for success. The Boy Scouts of America's mission to help boys be "Prepared. For Life.®" is directly correlated with the need for literacy in America and precisely why the BSA incorporates literacy skills into so much of its program.
