ENABLE (European Network Against Bullying in Learning and Leisure Environments) is an EU-funded project which combats bullying and contributes to the well-being of young people aged 11-14 through a unique blend of social and emotional development and peer education.

ENABLE takes a holistic and sustainable approach to reducing bullying through involving students, staff and parents/ carers.

The target audience for ENABLE is young people aged 11-14 although the programme can be adapted for use by other ages. The ENABLE partner countries are the UK, Denmark, Croatia, Belgium and Greece. Find out more http://enable.eun.org/news.

For creators, reshooting a scene for the tiniest bloopers is one of the more annoying (and cost-consuming) aspects of filming. Today, YouTube wants to help fix that by letting you blur any part of the video before it makes it to the public Web.
 
The concept isn’t entirely new – in 2012, YouTube launched a face blurring tool to help anonymize people in videos. With today’s update, users can blur out any section of the video – be it unwanted license plates, visible phone numbers, wardrobe malfunctions, disturbing imagery, or the like.

“Didn’t you audition for the musical? People told me you sounded like a dying pig.”

UPtv conducted a social experiment for its new anti-bullying PSA that questioned if anyone would actually stand up against bullying in an increasingly detached society.

With the help of three young actresses, the stage was set at a bus stop where one of the girls gets tormented by her two “schoolmates”.

Pedestrians who overheard the verbal attacks stood up for the teenager, while some invited the victim to get up and sit with them instead.
