Donald has a very important job.

He's the president of the United States of America.

April 27, 2017, is Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work Day.

The Trump kids and Jared are going to work with Donald.

Most kids would be excited.

But not the Trumps. The Trumps are luckier than most kids.

They get to go to work with their dad every day!

Donald doesn't really seem to like to do work.

He likes to watch TV and yell at strangers on the internet.

So the Trump kids have a lot of responsibility...

...even though Eric is only 33, Ivanka is only 35, Jared is only 36, and Donald Jr. is only 39.

Jared and Ivanka do a lot of important jobs for Donald — jobs that most people don't get to do without years and years of experience.

But they can do them — no sweat!

Ivanka meets with foreign leaders.

And gives speeches.

And goes to important meetings with important people.

Jared is in charge of fixing the whole government.

And making peace in the Middle East.

And fighting ISIS in Iraq.

He has to dress up like a big boy, but that's OK. Jared doesn't mind.

Then there's Donald Jr. and Eric. They run their dad’s old company, so they’re not supposed to come to his new job with him. That would be a conflict of interest.

Photo by Chip Somodevilla/Getty Images.

But sometimes they do anyway. Oops!

Photo by Timothy A. Clary/Getty Images.

They even let their dad give them business advice.

Photo by Timothy A. Clary/Getty Images.

Even though they're not supposed to. Talking to the president would give their company an unfair advantage over other companies.

Double oops!

Leaders of other countries know how much Donald loves his kids, so they like to do nice things for them.

Photo by Mark Wilson/Getty Images.

They think if they help the Trump kids out, Donald might do nice things for their countries in return.

They listen when Ivanka asks them to give money to her new foundation.

Photo by Michael Sohn/Getty Images.

And they let her build hotels in their countries.

Some countries help Jared build tall buildings too.

Donald was going to get tough on China.

But then a Chinese company invested in one of the buildings Jared builds.

Lately, Donald hasn't been so tough on China at all.

Photo by Jim Watson/Getty Images.

It might seem strange how much the Trumps love Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work Day.

Photo by Gustavo Caballero/Getty Images.

But by going to work with their dad, Ivanka, Jared, Donald Jr., and Eric are learning all about what it’s like to be a grown-up.

Photo by Chip Somodevilla/Getty Images.

They're getting hands-on experience at a real-life job.

And, best of all, they’re all making their own money!

Photo by Mandel Ngan/Getty Images.

Maybe lots and lots of it. Maybe not.

Photo by Timothy A. Clary/Getty Images.

Maybe even money from some of the countries that do nice things for them. Maybe not.

Photo by Fred Dufour/Getty Images.

We don't know because Donald hasn't released his tax returns.

Photo by Ron Sachs/Pool/Getty Images.

What a good deal for the Trumps!

Photo by Kevin Dietsch/Getty Images.

Donald smiles. He's just happy his kids are happy.

Photo by Mark Wilson/Getty Images.

And he's happy he can keep on watching TV and yelling at people on the internet.

Photo by Patrick Pleul/picture-alliance/dpa/AP.

"I'm so glad every day is Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work Day in our family," he probably thinks to himself.

And so it was.

(For four freaking years.)

(At least.)

(Unless you call your representatives and demand they, you know, do their jobs and start asking questions about all this. Like yesterday.)

In 1945, the world had just endured the bloodiest war in history. World leaders were determined to not repeat the mistakes of the past. They wanted to build a better future, one free from the "scourge of war" so they signed the UN Charter — creating a global organization of nations that could deter and repel aggressors, mediate conflicts and broker armistices, and ensure collective progress.

Over the following 75 years, the UN played an essential role in preventing, mitigating or resolving conflicts all over the world. It faced new challenges and new threats — including the spread of nuclear weapons and other weapons of mass destruction, a Cold War and brutal civil wars, transnational terrorism and genocides. Today, the UN faces new tensions: shifting and more hostile geopolitics, digital weaponization, a global pandemic, and more.

This slideshow shows how the UN has worked to build peace and security around the world:

Malians wait in line at a free clinic run by the UN Multidimensional Integrated Mission in Mali in 2014. Over their 75 year history, UN peacekeepers have deployed around the world in military and nonmilitary roles as they work towards human security and peace. Here's a look back at their history.

Artist Tom Ward has used his incredible illustration techniques to give us some new perspective on modern life through popular Disney characters. "Disney characters are so iconic that I thought transporting them to our modern world could help us see it through new eyes," he told The Metro.

Tom says he wanted to bring to life "the times we live in and communicate topical issues in a relatable way."

In Ward's "Alt Disney" series, Prince Charming and Pinocchio have fallen victim to smart phone addiction. Ariel is living in a polluted ocean, and Simba and Baloo have been abused by humans.

Between the new normal that is working from home and e-learning for students of all ages, having functional electronic devices is extremely important. But that doesn't mean needing to run out and buy the latest and greatest model. In fact, this cycle of constantly upgrading our devices to keep up with the newest technology is an incredibly dangerous habit.

The amount of e-waste we produce each year is growing at an increasing rate, and the improper treatment and disposal of this waste is harmful to both human health and the planet.

So what's the solution? While no one expects you to stop purchasing new phones, laptops, and other devices, what you can do is consider where you're purchasing them from and how often in order to help improve the planet for future generations.

It sounds like a ridiculous, sensationalist headline, but it's real. In Cheshire County, New Hampshire, a transsexual, anarchist Satanist has won the GOP nomination for county sheriff. Aria DiMezzo, who refers to herself as a "She-Male" and whose campaign motto was "F*** the Police," ran as a Republican in the primary. Though she ran unopposed on the ballot, according to Fox News, she anticipated that she would lose to a write-in candidate. Instead, 4,211 voters filled in the bubble next to her name, making her the official Republican candidate for county sheriff.

DiMezzo is clear about why she ran—to show how "clueless the average voter is" and to prove that "the system is utterly and hopelessly broken"—stances that her win only serves to reinforce.

In a blog post published on Friday, DiMezzo explained how she had never tried to hide who she was and that anyone could have looked her up to see what she was about, in addition to pointing out that those who are angry with her have no one to blame but themselves:

Schools often have to walk a fine line when it comes to parental complaints. Diverse backgrounds, beliefs, and preferences for what kids see and hear will always mean that schools can't please everyone all the time, so educators have to discern what's best for the whole, broad spectrum of kids in their care.

Sometimes, what's best is hard to discern. Sometimes it's absolutely not.

Such was the case this week when a parent at a St. Louis elementary school complained in a Facebook group about a book that was read to her 7-year-old. The parent wrote:

"Anyone else check out the read a loud book on Canvas for 2nd grade today? Ron's Big Mission was the book that was read out loud to my 7 year old. I caught this after she watched it bc I was working with my 3rd grader. I have called my daughters school. Parents, we have to preview what we are letting the kids see on there."
