Blog     27 Mar 2015 | 11:11 am

If you missed it, check out this awesome video via Mashable.Girl Scouts were represented by “The Supergirls,” a team of six-year old Girl Scout Daisies from Girl Scouts of Eastern Oklahoma who invented a battery-powered page turner for people with arthritis, people who are paralyzed, or “people who have no arms”; and Lauren Prox, a Girl Scout Gold Award recipient whose project “Reaching New Altitudes” aims to reverse the small percentage of minorities and females participating in the fields of aviation and...

SHF Radio Episode #73: eBay Spring Seller Update For Collectibles
Blog     27 Mar 2015 | 10:13 am
The collectibles category lives on eBay. Amazon? Forget about it! Try doing it yourself with your own website? Good luck! So when eBay updates their fees and policies twice a year buyers and especially sellers need to pay attention. In this episode of Scouting Hot Finds Radio I am going to break down the changes eBay is rolling out to the marketplace on May 1, 2015. For the most part it's a story of carrots and sticks. Some of the changers are meant to entice sellers to behave in a way that eBay sees as healthy for the site. Other...

Things Guys Should Know, Vol. 1: How to tie a necktie
Blog     27 Mar 2015 | 8:00 am
Business casual, with its short-sleeve shirts and chinos, is gaining ground at offices these days. But let’s not bury the necktie just yet. Teenage guys applying for a summer job, interviewing for a college scholarship or dressing for prom need to know how to tie a necktie. It’s an essential skill of being a guy. After graduation, tons of careers — bankers, lawyers, salesman — still consider the necktie a part of their office uniform. And they might frown upon a new hire bringing his dad to work to help him tie it properly. So today, in the first of a new series, I’ll share this Thing Guys Should Know: How to tie a...

Setting the Record Straight: Presidential Visits to the BSA National Jamboree
Blog     27 Mar 2015 | 7:55 am
In reading some comments on a Bryan on Scouting blog post, someone lamented that President Obama did not attend that National Jamboree while “every other President attended Boy Scout Jamborees while in office.” I was curious as to how accurate that statement was, as I’ve heard it several times prior to that comment. In doing […]...

PINEWOOD DERBY CAR SHOWCASEChima Eagle - Tony JochmanThis is the car that my son and I built for the PineCar Derby last year. He wanted a car that looked like the Lego Chima eagle tribes motorcycle set he had gotten for his birthday. Well this was definitely a challenge, but we did end up tracing parts from his Lego set which helped a lot. After he got done painting, even I was amazed at how it turned out. He got 3rd place in speed (and 1st in craft) at the train level, then 4th place for speed at the...

What Is a Pack Meeting?
Blog     27 Mar 2015 | 6:07 am
Tammy sent in this question: What is considered a Pack Meeting? Our pack has monthly pack meetings and also other events for the entire pack, such as family camping, pinewood derby, etc. Do events such as these take the place of the pack meeting for the month or should they be in addition to the pack meeting? We have mixed feelings in our committee and some feel we should cancel the pack meeting or a den meeting when there is a weekend pack event while others think we keep the schedule as is and people don’t have to attend everything. I...

Venturer says Scouting helped prepare her for cancer fight
Blog     27 Mar 2015 | 6:00 am
Katie Casserly never knew how much the Scout Motto — “Be Prepared” — would apply to her life until she was diagnosed with cancer last fall. The 18-year-old Venturer from Staten Island, N.Y., wanted to be in Scouting ever since she was little, and she has enjoyed every minute. “Scouting teaches you numerous things, gives you millions of chances, makes you cross paths with many people,” she says. “I’ve done things I never would’ve imagined, met people who have become family, and I’ve learned things that have set me for life. Without Scouting, I would have nothing right now.” Katie got the word she had Hodgkin’s lymphoma,...

National Venturing VP describes meeting President Obama to deliver Report to the Nation
Blog     26 Mar 2015 | 2:40 pm
Jillian Infusino had been to the White House before, but this time was different. This time she was meeting the president of the United States. Jillian, who is the National Venturing Vice President, was part of a Scouting delegation that presented the 2014 Report to the Nation to President Obama on Wednesday. In spite of her monumental responsibility, Jillian said she felt pretty relaxed as the group proceeded through security, toured the East Wing and waited in the Oval Office reception room. Then an aide said it was time, and it hit her. “When we got in line and starting walking down, it was like, oh man, we’re really going to do...
