posted by Corine Gatti

National Geographic will be releasing a four-hour epic television movie event this fall  that takes a historical look at what life was really like for the pilgrims, and the hardships they faced in the New World. Saints & Strangers will not only entertain, but enlighten on what took place between the natives, and the settlers, who were not all saints, but sinners.

With a true clash of values based on historical documents, and experts from the Smithsonian, many passengers came over for financial freedom, not just religious freedom as previously believed. Some were criminals. There was turmoil already brewing in the New World before the Mayflower hit shore. Battling for freedom were also the Native American tribes who dealt with their own political upheavals. With all these variables, conflict would ensue.

posted by Angela Guzman

Arizona CardinalsThe National Football League appears to be making the same strides toward gender equality by hiring Jen Welter who is the first female NFL coach.

The Arizona Cardinals head coach Bruce Arians hinted towards the hiring of a female coach back in March when a reporter questioned if the league would ever hire a woman to coach. Arians responded by saying, “The minute they can prove they can make a player better, they’ll be hired.” The tone and open-minded response prompted rumors to circulate and eyebrows to be raised.

Arians is a nontraditional coach that often thinks outside of the box when it comes to the game of football and how to comprise a winning team. When looking for coaches to hire, Arians sought out professionals who were experienced and had the ability to reach players on another level. Welter fits that description – she has 14 years of professional football experience within the women’s league and in essence lives and breathes the game.

In addition, Arians likes to give the underdog a fair chance. He received a lot of grief for playing defensive back Tyrann Mathieu and wide receiver Josh Brown yet, both players proved to be truly exceptional players.
