A tween is showing how fierce and meaningful short hair can be
No one comes between a girl and her sister; especially not bullies. When little Jorgia Orrick was picked on for hair she got cut short, big sister Sarah stepped with a lesson no one will forget.
She didn’t bully back, instead she went straight to the salon and got her waist long hair chopped short! Noell Shore the hairstylist at Hue Salon had the honor of following Sarah’s instructions on how to do the cut. “She created the entire look,” says Shore. “She spoke with her hands and said, ‘I want this piece of hair to swirl around the back of my head’ and ‘I want it cut here.’ All I did was carve it.”
While big sis was fine with losing her locks, Jorgia was upset at first. “She wanted to be the only one with short hair,” the girls’ mother explains. And now Jorgia loves it too. The bullies? Learned their lesson!

Officials at the Dachau Concentration Camp Museum are bringing a local Burger King location to court because they won't stop handing out flyers in the parking lot
- A Burger King franchise in Germany has been handing out flyers in the parking lot of the Dachau Concentration Camp Museum
- Officials with the museum have previously requested the fast food restaurant stop, but flyers are still being handed out
- Now, Dachau is taking the local restaurant to court
Regardless of what you think of how Burger King's food tastes, we can all agree advertising at a former concentration camp is tasteless. Well, everyone except the people at the local fast food restaurant who have been handing out flyers in Dachau's parking lot for years.
According to officials at Dachau Concentration Camp Museum in Germany, they've repeatedly asked for the advertising to stop, but it hasn't. As Dr. Gabriele Hammermann, head of the memorial site explains, “for many, Dachau is not just a memorial but a cemetery" and the flyering is "disrespectful."
Now, Dr. Hammermann and the rest of the higher ups at the museum are taking local Burger King owner Ronny Otto to court. So far, he hasn't commented, but Burger King Germany said it “very much regrets" the issue has made its way to the courts.
