Kourtney Kardashian & Scott Disick Enjoy A Family Ski Trip In Aspen!

Fun in the snow!

In the past couple of days, Kourtney Kardashian and Scott Disick – along with their children Mason, Penelope, and Reign – are enjoying a family ski trip in Aspen.

As seen on Snapchat and Instagram, the KUWTK stars are tearing up the ski slopes, as well as lounging in their luxury cabin!

While we are certain Kourt and Scott are having a great time, what’s NOT certain is their relationship status. As we reported earlier this month, there were rumors that the on-again, off-again couple were back on after being separated for over a year. However, weeks later, Kris Jenner‘s eldest daughter was spotted getting cozy with model Younes Bendjima.

Either way, we’re glad they’re spending time with their kids during the holidays!

Dads Are Rallying For “Amazon Mom” To Change Its Name To “Amazon Family”

The retail giant’s family-discount program is only known as Amazon Mom in the United States – it’s known as Amazon Family in other countries. #AmazonFamilyUS

1. Parent’s Twitter and Facebook feeds across the US have been lighting up with the following graphic this morning:

2. The movement has largely been inspired by the passing of Oren Miller, the father and blogger behind bloggerfather.com.

Oren Miller / Via bloggerfather.com

Miller was a giant in the online parenting community who had long questioned Amazon.com’s branding of their family rewards program as “Amazon Mom” in the US, and was championing for a change.

3. Miller wrote often about why he felt the exclusionary name was an issue, but never more succinctly than in his February 2013 post promoting another dad’s petition to change the name to Amazon Family, as it was known in Canada, the UK and elsewhere.

“Please sign that petition. Please. It’s not about a name and it’s not about me personally being offended and it’s not about stupid emails about yoga classes. It’s about a company that looks at the US, then looks at England, and then decides that over there, parent equals mom or dad, while here, well, we’re not ready for that yet.” – Oren Miller

5. After his death, the community Miller touched so deeply rallied, taking up the #AmazonFamilyUS torch as their own.

10. Doug French, founder of the Dad 2.0 Summit, an annual meeting of dads and marketers, spoke to BuzzFeed Life about the #AmazonFamilyUS movement:

“Amazon is a smart, powerful, and progressive company with as recognizable a global brand as there is. Bringing ‘Amazon Family’ in line with its branding all over the rest of the world would be a strong show of support for dads in the US.”

11. So far the #AmazonFamilyUS petition has over 3000 signatures.

Dads are an integral part of the village. A village needs a vendor. Be ours, @Amazon! #AmazonFamilyUS https://t.co/RXJsYWnG0L

12. BuzzFeed Life has reached out to Amazon Mom for comment.

Top 10 Most Influential Jews In History

The Jewish people have a long and colorful history. They are the source of some of the greatest thinking in history – religious and scientific. They have suffered many tribulations and have been the cause of a few as well. They have been central figures in much of the unrest in the middle east where the nation of Israel was created by the United Nations in the 20th century. This is a list of the greatest Jews – those who have (for good or bad) influenced the world.

David Ben Gurion

David Ben-Gurion was the first Prime Minister of Israel. Ben-Gurion’s passion for Zionism, which began early in life, culminated in his instrumental role in the founding of the state of Israel. After leading Israel to victory in the 1948 Arab-Israeli War, Ben-Gurion helped build the state institutions and oversaw the absorption of vast numbers of Jews from all over the world. Upon retiring from political life in 1970, he moved to Sde Boker, where he lived until his death. Posthumously, Ben-Gurion was named one of Time Magazine’s 100 Most Important People of the Century.

Niels Bohr

Niels Henrik David Bohr was a Danish physicist who made fundamental contributions to understanding atomic structure and quantum mechanics, for which he received the Nobel Prize in Physics in 1922. Bohr mentored and collaborated with many of the top physicists of the century at his institute in Copenhagen. He was also part of the team of physicists working on the Manhattan Project. Bohr married Margrethe Nørlund in 1912, and one of their sons, Aage Niels Bohr, grew up to be an important physicist who, like his father, received the Nobel prize, in 1975. Bohr has been described as one of the most influential physicists of the 20th century.

Gustav Mahler

Gustav Mahler was a composer and conductor, born in Bohemia (formerly part of the Austrian Empire, currently located in the Czech Republic), and identified throughout his life as a German-speaking Austrian. Mahler was best known during his own lifetime as one of the leading orchestral and operatic conductors of the day. He has since come to be acknowledged as among the most important late-romantic composers, although his music was never completely accepted by the musical establishment of Vienna while he was still alive. Mahler composed primarily symphonies and songs; however, his approach to genre often blurred the lines between orchestral song, symphony, and symphonic poem.

Spinoza

Baruch or Benedict de Spinoza was a Dutch philosopher of Portuguese Jewish origin. Revealing considerable scientific aptitude, the breadth and importance of Spinoza’s work was not fully realized until years after his death. Today, he is considered one of the great rationalists of 17th-century philosophy, laying the groundwork for the 18th century Enlightenment and modern biblical criticism. By virtue of his magnum opus, the posthumous Ethics, in which he opposed Descartes’ mind–body dualism, Spinoza is considered to be one of Western philosophy’s most important philosophers.

Freud-1

Sigmund Freud, born Sigismund Shlomo Freud, was an Austrian psychiatrist who founded the psychoanalytic school of psychology. Freud is best known for his theories of the unconscious mind and the defense mechanism of repression and for creating the clinical practice of psychoanalysis for curing psychopathology through dialogue between a patient and a psychoanalyst. Freud is also renowned for his redefinition of sexual desire as the primary motivational energy of human life, as well as his therapeutic techniques, including the use of free association, his theory of transference in the therapeutic relationship, and the interpretation of dreams as sources of insight into unconscious desires.

Maimonides-2

Moses Maimonides, also known as the Rambam, was a rabbi, physician, and philosopher in Spain, Morocco and Egypt during the Middle Ages. He was the preeminent medieval Jewish philosopher whose ideas also influenced the non-Jewish world. One of the central tenets of Maimonides’s philosophy is that it is impossible for the truths arrived at by human intellect to contradict those revealed by God. Although his copious works on Jewish law and ethics were initially met with opposition during his lifetime, he was posthumously acknowledged to be one of the foremost rabbinical arbiters and philosophers in Jewish history. Today, his works and his views are considered a cornerstone of Jewish thought and study.

Albert Einstein 1947A

Einstein was a German-born theoretical physicist. He is best known for his theory of relativity and specifically mass–energy equivalence, E = mc², the most famous equation of the twentieth century. Einstein received the 1921 Nobel Prize in Physics “for his services to Theoretical Physics, and especially for his discovery of the law of the photoelectric effect.” Einstein published over 300 scientific works and over 150 non-scientific works. Einstein is revered by the physics community, and in 1999 Time magazine named him the “Person of the Century”. In wider culture the name “Einstein” has become synonymous with genius.

Abraham3Isaac

Jewish, Christian and Muslim traditions regard Abraham as the founding patriarch of the Israelites, Ishmaelites and Edomite peoples. He is widely regarded as the patriarch of Judaism and monotheism. Abraham means “High Father”, coming from the Aramaic words “Aba Rama”. Judaism, Christianity and Islam are sometimes referred to as the “Abrahamic religions”, because of the progenitor role Abraham plays in their holy books. According to Genesis, Abraham was brought by God from Mesopotamia to the land of Canaan. There Abraham entered into a covenant: in exchange for sole recognition of God as supreme universal deity and authority, Abraham will be blessed with innumerable progeny.

Moses1

Moses is a Biblical Hebrew religious leader, lawgiver, a Levi, prophet, and military leader, who wrote the Torah. He is the most important prophet in Judaism. According to the book of Exodus, Moses was born to a Hebrew mother, Jochebed, who hid him when a Pharaoh ordered all newborn Hebrew boys to be killed, and he ended up being adopted into the Egyptian royal family. After killing an Egyptian slave-master, Moses fled and became a shepherd, and was later commanded by God to deliver the Hebrews from slavery. After the Ten Plagues were unleashed on Egypt, he led the Hebrew slaves out of Egypt, through the Red Sea, where they wandered in the desert for 40 years, during which time, according to the Bible, Moses received the Ten Commandments.

Sacred

Jesus of Nazareth is the founding figure of Christianity and Christianity is the religion that shaped Europe, and much of the world as a consequence. As the largest religion in the world, there is no doubt that Christianity is still making an impact to this day. The principal sources of information regarding Jesus’ life and teachings are the four canonical gospels. Most critical scholars in the fields of history and biblical studies believe that ancient texts on Jesus’ life are at least partially accurate, agreeing that Jesus was a Galilean Jew who was regarded as a teacher and healer. They also generally accept that he was baptized by John the Baptist, and was crucified in Jerusalem on orders of the Roman Prefect of Judaea Pontius Pilate, on the charge of sedition against the Roman Empire.
