Why are the Girl Scouts still selling unhealthy cookies?
C'mon out to the wind tunnel and fly around with your friends. That's what Girl Scout Troop 1962 did and they had the time of their lives!

Girl Scouts of the USA and Microsoft Corp. joined forces to create LMK (text speak for “let me know”) — an online safety resource where girls are the technology experts on subjects that are often best discussed at a teen-to-teen level, like cyberbullying, predators and social networking. This girl-led campaign allows girls to share their online concerns with peer “tech-perts” about the issues that affect them while raising awareness about how to help keep girls (ages 13–17) safe while surfing the Web. In addition, parents have access to a site specifically geared to their needs, equipping them with the tools necessary to understand and act on the rapidly changing world of online safety.
A cocktail that mimics that of the famous girl scout cookie, all the minty properties of the cookie.

The cookies ARE here, but not as many as you may remember. The Girl Scouts of Ameirca are dropping some flavors, but the organization denies the cuts are due to the economy, saying it’s just business. As CBS-affiliate KREM reports... at least they didn’t touch the Thin Mints.
“Some of their flavors may possibly be a thing of the past. The Girl Scouts plan to discontinue some of the sales of their cookies. Newer varieties such as Thank-U-Berry Munch are being scratched. Sugar-free chocolate chip cookies are also being, well, they’re gonna make it to the chopping block.”
...but don’t get a chocolate chip on your shoulder yet. It’s just a pilot program, and as ABC-affiliate KATU reports - not all troops are in.
“’Of 112 Girl Scout councils in the country, [only] 12 Little Brownie councils have chosen to participate in a pilot program that focuses on the six top-selling cookie varieties...’”
There are 11 flavors of Girl Scout cookies listed on the organization’s Web site. Various news reports say the goal is to eventually narrow the selection down to the most popular five or six. (Video: Fox News)
The organization says the reason for the cuts is due to large inventories of leftover cookies outside the most popular.
...and The Atlantic reports it’s not the first time the Girl Scouts have tried to save some dough.
“When flour and transportation costs in the 2000s, Girl Scouts protected their cookie box prices by making smaller cookies, putting fewer in a pack, and making other changes to make the boxes lighter.”
If the program is successful, we could say bye bye to Dulce de Leche, Thank U Berry Munch, All Abouts, the sugar-free chocolate chip cookie or the Thanks-A-Lot shortbread cookie --- and blog YumSugar says the cut-backs are a smart move.
“The top five cookie varieties compose 77 percent of Girl Scout cookie sales; the test program, known as the Super Six pilot, will take advantage of that...”
But what do you think? Do you feel crummy about the proposed cuts? Or do you think it’s just “good business”? You tell us.

I stole his girl scout cookies so what

From thin mints to -- prosthetic hands?
They call themselves the Flying Monkeys. A Girl Scout team consisting of 11 to 13 year-old girls developed a prosthetic hand device called the BOB-1. A member of that team who has a limb difference was the inspiration for the project. The device is already being put to use.
This is Danielle. A three-year-old from Duluth, Georgia. The prosthetic arm the Flying Monkeys designed has helped her hold a pencil with her right arm and write for the first time.
The device can also help in everyday tasks like coloring, eating and personal grooming. The Flying Monkeys tell ABC, the best thing about their device is its potential to help even more children.
Girl Scout 1: “It is fun to be able to help people, it’s rewarding.”
Girl Scout 2: “If we could make more we would actually change other kid’s lives.”
Girl Scout 3: “It feels really good knowing that she can actually be able to do something she might not have been able to do with her right hand.”
The girls did their homework before designing the prosthetic arm. A writer for Popular Science explains the extent of their research.
“The Girl Scouts visited a prosthetics manufacturer and an occupational therapist to learn about existing prosthetics, and they learned they’re expensive and cumbersome, so they wanted to build something that was simple to put on and use.”
The Flying Monkeys received the Global Innovation Award and $20,000 to patent the invention. The girls were chosen by nearly 1 million people who visited the award website from 145 countries. One of girl’s mothers explains to NBC-affiliate WHO their excitement.
“The kids were all screaming and yelling, AHHHHHHH and jumping up and down and it was mind blowing. When they put their minds to it, there is nothing they cannot do.”
So is this intelligent piece of innovation enough to keep those Boy Scouts across the campfire at bay? A writer at Gizmodo says there’s a whole lot girl power leading the charge.
“While the Boy Scouts might have their ballyhooed robotics badge, it is actually the Girl Scouts who struck first in this pee-wee tech war...”
The Flying Monkeys are among more than 200 Girl Scout robotics teams across the US. It’s all part of an initiative to encourage children to focus on science, technology, engineering and math.
