Making the Cut season 3 episode 5 recap: Festival Wear
Is it because his oral presentation was not as enthusiastic as his competitors? Or that his store (whom some sadly regarded as “too celebral,”) did not wow the judges? I would have appreciated knowing more about what factors were considered in the final decision. As for the show’s hosts, I agree that based on body language Tim seemed to favor Gary. Heidi, on the other hand, didn’t even take time to read Gary’s video in his store presentation; she, to me, appears superficial and closed.
“It was like a revolving door,” Patterson said. That’s not unusual for kids who are seen as aggressive, education experts say. Once a student has been classified with a disability, federal law requires school districts to educate them in the least restrictive possible setting, integrated with their nondisabled peers. In reality, teachers often don’t have the training to deal with kids who have repeated behavioral problems, said Kristen GoldMansour, a former teacher who works as a consultant in dozens of New York City schools.
It was with Jordan that Gary’s footwork and other fundamentals of the game started to improve. Gary and his mom, a former player herself, watched his dad’s games together — over and over again. On his own, he’d watch other games and footage of other players.
Sarah Alice, 11, repeats back what other people say to her and still plays with a jack-in-the-box. Bronson, 12, is so severely delayed he spent years in therapy to learn the name of his favorite plaything, bottles. I was sent to group therapy for children of separated parents, then later for counseling. Neither of these measures was meant to understand me, but to fix me. When the interventions inevitably failed, I was simply grounded, denied privileges, and excluded from family activities.
It is, first and foremost, a science fiction show about a group people, not a group of superheroes. I breezed through the first half of the show, finding it a good filler for housework and various chores that needed my physical attention. It wasn’t until episode three, “Anger Management,” that the show began to pull me away from my housework and requiring a more directed focus. The latter half of that episode in particular drew me to my couch, where I watched my hand over my mouth.
Some schools have excellent reputations and get far more applicants than they can take; others have been the subject of multiple complaints and lawsuits alleging mistreatment of kids. Little information is available publicly about each school, so parents who don’t have paid consultants or deep networks may have nothing to go on but online reviews. Not everyone who pursues Carter cases has hundreds of thousands of dollars on hand. It’s not uncommon for parents to refinance their homes or pull cash from retirement plans to pay the deposit on a residential school that a family hopes will rescue their suicidal or addicted child. And there’s no shortage of GoFundMe pages set up by families begging for help with the final $10,000 or $15,000.
Getting placed at any of these schools can be a long and circuitous process, involving multiple meetings, referrals and interviews. And even then, there’s no guarantee that an appropriate school will have space. Kids sometimes wait months for a bed to open up at a therapeutic residential school on the state-approved list.
Obviously, we had a bridal assignment, which I didn’t see coming, but that final runway was my opportunity to live in color and to showcase joy. I wanted people to see that I have range. Yeah, I think that was on Episode 6, with the video assignment. He was like, “You haven’t won yet.” And I’m like, “Don’t think I don’t know that! ” But then after a while, he was like, “Andrea, you’re consistent and that’s good too.” And I think that picked my chin up a little bit.
The majority of what we’re seeing is ho-hum routine mall stuff, nothing original or inspired, often looking cheap and badly fitted. Miami Andrea’s stuff is what used to be sold in the back pages of cheesy magazines. I can’t believe we’re supposed to take her seriously. I love that he didn’t force his words on the model, modern farm logo and ended up with a much more authentic result because of it. And by doing the painting himself on the outfit rather than have the models paint each other, he retained that level of control necessary to really take ownership of his garments, and that artistry. It was a great combination of leadership and collaboration.
