The Mozy 22 isn't just any ordinary wrap; it's a game-changer. Whether you're snuggled up on the couch with a good book, taking your dog for a walk, or cheering at your child's soccer game, Mozy 22 literally has you covered. With its lightweight, super-soft design and adjustable hook closure, you can easily wrap yourself up and stay warm in those cooler temperatures.

The Story Behind Mozy

The journey to create the Mozy 22 began with its founder, a busy dad who found himself shivering at his kid's games and realized there had to be a better alternative to the traditional stadium blanket. This problem sparked a relentless pursuit to develop a superior solution that provides warmth, comfort, and mobility. Through countless trials and iterations, the team behind Mozy explored over 40 different designs, fine-tuning the details to create the ultimate wrap. It wasn't just about creating a better stadium blanket but revolutionizing how we keep warm in everyday situations, from virtual meetings to outdoor leisure activities. After numerous tests and refinements, the Mozy 22 was born.

Mozy 22’s Innovative Design

The Mozy 22’s groundbreaking approach to warmth and comfort sets it apart from other products. With its patented technology, this extraordinary wrap is truly a one-of-a-kind solution for those looking to stay warm, no matter the occasion. Extensive testing using thermocouples has proven that the Mozy 22 is over 500% warmer than a typical stadium blanket. With one patent issued and another pending, its innovative design effectively blocks convective heat loss.

What sets Mozy 22 apart from traditional warmth solutions is its innovative design that reduces convective heat loss. Compared to jeans, which offer minimal protection and allow heat to escape all over the legs, or stadium blankets, which still lose heat through gaps and around the back of the legs, Mozy 22 efficiently retains warmth. This design ensures that cool breezes don't penetrate the wrap, keeping your legs toasty and comfortable. The science behind Mozy 22's impressive warmth retention lies in its ability to minimize molecular convective heat loss. By effectively maintaining a layer of warm air molecules close to the exterior of the jeans while keeping cold air molecules outside, Mozy 22 ensures you stay warm even when the temperature drops. This intelligent design creates a microclimate around your lower body, making it the perfect choice for those cooler days.

Controlled engineering tests were conducted on the Mozy 22, using a warmed test dummy and thermocouples to compare its performance against jeans and stadium blankets. The results were clear: Mozy 22 excelled at retaining heat, proving that its groundbreaking design truly lives up to the promise of keeping you warm and comfortable.

Features and Benefits

One of the standout features of Mozy 22 is its mobile and hands-free design. It allows you to move freely without sacrificing warmth. Whether you're hopping up to cheer at a game or simply going for a walk, Mozy 22 stays securely fastened around your waist, ensuring your blanket won't fall to the ground, and you'll never have to fumble with it while on the go. Another fantastic benefit of Mozy 22 is its adjustable hook closure, which provides a customizable fit for users of all shapes and sizes. The wrap is easily pressed closed along your left side as snugly as you'd like, and the snag-free hook and loop border creates a seal that's both easy to adjust and open, keeping you dry and comfortable.

Mozy 22 also features two easy-to-reach pockets and a carabiner clip, making securing all your outdoor essentials a breeze. From water bottles and keys to hats, gloves, and even your phone, Mozy 22 has room for everything you need while out and about. Comfort is key with Mozy 22, and its plush fleece interior offers an added layer of warmth and coziness. As you wrap yourself in this soft, heavyweight fleece, you'll feel instantly snug and ready to face cold weather.

A Fit For Every Size

But Mozy 22 isn't just a one-size-fits-all solution. Its infinitely adjustable warmth allows you to adapt quickly to changing weather conditions. You can wear Mozy 22 higher up on your torso, just at your waist, sealed halfway down, or fastened snugly over your ankles. With Mozy 22, you're always in control of your level of warmth, making it a versatile and essential addition to your wardrobe.

Mozy 22 is designed to cater to various body types, ensuring everyone can enjoy its warmth and comfort. With size options available for both youth and adults, there's a Mozy 22 for everyone.

Collins after being selected by Prudential Emerging Visionaries


A changemaker is anyone who takes creative action to solve an ongoing problem—be it in one’s own community or throughout the world.

And when it comes to creating positive change, enthusiasm and a fresh perspective can hold just as much power as years of experience. That’s why, every year, Prudential Emerging Visionaries celebrates young people for their innovative solutions to financial and societal challenges in their communities.

This national program awards 25 young leaders (ages 14-18) up to $15,000 to devote to their passion projects. Additionally, winners receive a trip to Prudential’s headquarters in Newark, New Jersey, where they receive coaching, skills development, and networking opportunities with mentors to help take their innovative solutions to the next level.

For 18-year-old Sydnie Collins, one of the 2023 winners, this meant being able to take her podcast, “Perfect Timing,” to the next level.

Since 2020, the Maryland-based teen has provided a safe platform that promotes youth positivity by giving young people the space to celebrate their achievements and combat mental health stigmas. The idea came during the height of Covid-19, when Collins recalled social media “becoming a dark space flooded with news,” which greatly affected her own anxiety and depression.

Knowing that she couldn’t be the only one feeling this way, “Perfect Timing” seemed like a valuable way to give back to her community. Over the course of 109 episodes, Collins has interviewed a wide range of guests—from other young influencers to celebrities, from innovators to nonprofit leaders—all to remind Gen Z that “their dreams are tangible.”

That mission statement has since evolved beyond creating inspiring content and has expanded to hosting events and speaking publicly at summits and workshops. One of Collins’ favorite moments so far has been raising $7,000 to take 200 underserved girls to see “The Little Mermaid” on its opening weekend, to “let them know they are enough” and that there’s an “older sister” in their corner.

Of course, as with most new projects, funding for “Perfect Timing” has come entirely out of Collins’ pocket. Thankfully, the funding she earned from being selected as a Prudential Emerging Visionary is going toward upgraded recording equipment, the support of expert producers, and skill-building classes to help her become a better host and public speaker. She’ll even be able to lease an office space that allows for a live audience.

Plus, after meeting with the 24 other Prudential Emerging Visionaries and her Prudential employee coach, who is helping her develop specific action steps to connect with her target audience, Collins has more confidence in a “grander path” for her work.

“I learned that my network could extend to multiple spaces beyond my realm of podcasting and journalism when industry leaders are willing to share their expertise, time, and financial support,” she told Upworthy. “It only takes one person to change, and two people to expand that change.”

Prudential Emerging Visionaries is currently seeking applicants for 2024. Winners may receive up to $15,000 in awards and an all-expenses-paid trip to Prudential’s headquarters with a parent or guardian, as well as ongoing coaching and skills development to grow their projects.

If you or someone you know between the ages of 14 -18 not only displays a bold vision for the future but is taking action to bring that vision to life, click here to learn more. Applications are due by Nov. 2, 2023.

Mother of 7 stunned to learn the ‘Alphabet Song’ has been changed to get with the times

There's a good reason for the update. But it's jarring, to say the least.

Jessica Skube can't believe that they changed the 'Alphabet Song.'

The oldest published version of the melody to the “Alphabet Song” was in 1761. However, because it’s the same melody as “Twinkle Twinkle Little Star” and “Baa Baa Black Sheep,” it's hard to trace it to its original composer.

The “Alphabet Song” is so deeply entrenched in American culture that it almost seems sacrilegious to change a piece of music that’s one of the first most of us ever learned. But after all these years, some educators are altering the classic melody so that there is a variation when the letters L-M-N-O-P are sung.

This change shocked popular TikTokker Jessica Skube, who documents life raising 7 children with her 2.6 million followers. Nearly 10 million people have watched her video revealing the significant change, and it’s received over 56,000 comments since first being published in late 2020.

3,700-year-old Babylonian stone tablet gets translated, changes history

They were doing trigonometry 1500 years before the Greeks.

via UNSW

Dr. Daniel Mansfield and his team at the University of New South Wales in Australia have just made an incredible discovery. While studying a 3,700-year-old tablet from the ancient civilization of Babylon, they found evidence that the Babylonians were doing something astounding: trigonometry!

Most historians have credited the Greeks with creating the study of triangles' sides and angles, but this tablet presents indisputable evidence that the Babylonians were using the technique 1,500 years before the Greeks ever were.

The Gen X 'stay at home mom' crisis is real, but what's the solution?

Some moms in their 40s feel like they were lied to about what their "resume gap" would mean.

40-something moms who stayed home to be with their kids are finding themselves in uncharted waters.

A few generations ago, parents had pretty clearly defined roles, with the dad generally being the breadwinner and the mom being the homemaker/stay-at-home mother. Then women's rights movement came along, empowering women in the workplace, ushering in the era of two working parents and producing an entire generation of "latchkey kids."

Now those Gen X latchkey kids are parenting Gen Z, with the pendulum of working motherhood having swung somewhat to the middle. We were raised to believe we could be anything we dreamed of being and that we didn't have to choose between being a mom and having a career. Gen X also became mothers during the heyday of parenting self-help books that impressed upon us the importance of attachment and hands-on childrearing, as well as the era of super-scheduled kids, whose activities alone require a full-time manager.

As a result, those of us in our 40s have raised our kids straddling two worlds—the one where women can have all of the career success we desire and the one where we can choose to be stay-at-home moms who do all the things. At first, we were told we could have it all, but when the impossibility of that became clear, we were told, "Well, you can have it all, just not at the same time."

But as many moms are finding as their kids start leaving the nest, even that isn't the full truth.

Kennyi Aouad totally lost it when he tried to say "sardoodledom."

Almost 100 years ago, nine newspapers joined forces to create a national spelling bee to help promote literacy. Now the Scripps National Spelling Bee has become so popular that was televised for 27 years on ESPN before moving to its own network in 2022.

The Scripps National Spelling Bee is a serious competition with students who have studied arduously to memorize root words, phonetic rules and unusual spellings in the hopes of being crowned the nation's spelling champion. The honor also comes with a $50,000 cash prize, so the competition is fierce.

But that didn't stop one competitor from bursting into giggles at being asked to spell the word "sardoodledom."

Jrdan Klen counts the number of requests her 3 kids make in a day.

There never seems to be any downtime when you’re the default parent. You know, the parent that the kids go to first when they want anything, especially food. They're also the go-to person for school forms and bedtime stories, and the parents that the school reaches out to when a student is sick has to go home.

Some parents are the default because there’s an imbalance in the home, which forces them to assume most of the day-to-day child-rearing responsibilities. In other families, one parent is the default because the other is busy with work or other obligations.

Popular TikTokker Jordan Klein wondered why she becomes overwhelmed halfway through the day while watching her children. "I have three boys, ages 5, 3, and 1, and I continuously lose my sh*t. Sometimes it comes out. Sometimes," she said in a recent post. "I lose my sh*t right around 2 or 3 p.m. every day without fail. My husband works from home. But he does not lose his sh*t consistently. So, what's going on?"

To get to the bottom of her situation, she conducted a scientific study where she counted the number of requests she gets from her children on a given day, and the results were unbelievable.

"I downloaded one of those little counter clicker apps on my phone where I could just push the screen, and it ticks up one number, and I was just gonna hit it every time one of my children ...made a request,” Jordan said in her TikTok video.

Just ten minutes after downloading the app, her kids made 86 requests of her. She even didn't count repeats, and kids love to repeat themselves. “I guarantee you that if I were to ask my husband how many requests a day he gets at work... it's in the single digits, for sure," she added.

And they say being a stay-at-home mom isn’t a full-time job! “This validates my burnout, right?” Jordan captioned her post.

"I feel this completely, and point it out often to my husband. Like yall, Dad is RIGHT THERE. Ask him," CrochetFeen wrote in the comments. "I have 3 kids too and ‘Mom’ is now a triggering word," Sandra added.

The quasi-scientific experiment gives Jordan some excellent ammunition when talking to her husband about how they divide parenting duties. Even if it doesn’t mean he takes over the default role after work, it at least makes a great case that Jordan deserves more than a few lengthy breaks throughout the day and a few days off every month.

There is only so much stress and mental anguish that parents can take before they are no longer effective and cannot provide a happy and healthy home for their children. When evaluating domestic responsibilities, we often consider having a professional job more stressful than raising children. However, Jordan’s experiment proves that parenting can mean a lot more emotional labor, and families should take a second look at how default parents are valued.

TikTokker Mackenzie Waddell shares a heartfelt story about her daughter.

A mother on TikTok shared a heartfelt moment when her 9-year-old daughter opened up about her self-image concerns, wondering about her appearance as she grows up. The story was a wonderful example of a mother delicately dealing with an issue that far too many young women face. It was also a difficult moment because the conversation brought up the mother's body issues as well.

The conversation happened while the two were clothes shopping at Target. “My 9-year-old’s saying she's fat, and this is because she has to wear adult sizes versus kids 'cause she's really tall, just like me,” Mackenzie Waddell told her 222,000 followers.
