At 31, she was tall and not model-thin, and to make the process even more complicated, she was undergoing chemotherapy for recently diagnosed cancer. Most of the boutiques she visited had only a limited number of styles to try in her size. “It’s supposed to be a wonderful moment, but it was mortifying.” When she found a dress she loved, she wanted to add cap sleeves and a belt and lengthen the train.

It's the online tool where her teachers post homework, quizzes, essays, classroom activities, deadlines, readings, and so on. Google Docs and other Google productivity tools are available there as well. The usage of Google products isn't unique to Lodewyk's public school in Bay City, Michigan. There are 80 million educators and … [Read more...] about Google is filling high school classrooms with Androids and Chromebooks — but the kids just want iPhones
