In an article for Businessweek, Apple CEO Tim Cook went public this morning with news that, as he mentions, many people already knew — He’s gay. His coming out is at once humble and confident, simple and profound.
When director Rob Bliss‘s girlfriend told him how bad the catcalling was on New York City’s streets, he had to do something about it.
For 10 hours one day, Bliss walked around New York with a backpack that had a camera hidden inside. Following him was actress Shoshana Roberts, who simply walked around the city in jeans and a t-shirt. She faced over 10 incidents of street harrassment per hour over the course of that day.
This condensed video of that day shows what countless women face every day just walking down the street…
Anyone who’s around kids for 5 minutes knows how incredibly weird they are. It’s why we love them and it’s why they drive us crazy. And sometimes they’re so out of control they just seem, well, drunk. But in a completely wholesome way, of course.
There are different schools of thought on how valuable it is to tell kids they can be and do anything, but we can all agree that, in this case, it’s a brilliant idea. Baby Khoi can be anything…thanks to his dad’s quick and creative sketches on photos he takes of his new baby.
After snapping a picture of his son, dad imagines what adventurer or superhero might strike the same pose as his boy does in the image, and then he makes it happen.
This past summer, Haleh’s dad was in town to visit. She and her husband were excited to tell him about the baby they’re going to have, so when dad thought they were going to snap a few pics, they rolled a video instead.
Due to requirements at work, former news anchor Penn Holderness has never trick-or-treated with his kids…
So this year I am making up for lost time. I am picking the kids up from class and we are getting dressed immediately. I am taking enough pictures to fill up a NORAD server. I am toasting pumpkin seeds. I am setting up an adult margarita station in my driveway for pregame.
Oh, and I am wearing exactly what my kids want me to wear.
Clearly he’s eager for all the festivities. So eager, in fact, he made this ridiculously happy and over-the-top parody of…Snoop Dogg’s “Gin and Juice.” (Obviously. Isn’t that what everyone does when they’re excited?)
There’s a lot that goes into a career in the arts or some other creative field, but really it comes down to skill and drive. And as parents, we can make a huge difference in whether our creative children have this.
The best part? The most important thing they need is completely free…and withholding it has literally no advantages.
Pets can often feel like a beloved member of the family: we count on their unconditional love and companionship, and in turn, they count on ours.
And for one man in Kentucky, this was especially true recently. 73-year-old James Wathen was so sick and weak that he couldn’t eat, or even speak above a whisper. James told his nurses how much he missed his dog, Bubba, and sensing that it might be their final goodbye, the care team conspired to reunite the best friends.
The only problem? The hospital didn’t allow for the admission of pets. Undeterred, James’ nurses worked in secret with the shelter Bubba had been taken to when James was admitted, and managed to sneak the little pup into the hospital…
Apparently, Bubba had also been doing poorly since he was separated from his best friend. According to the President of the shelter Bubba had been living in, he showed the same symptoms as James…
The dog quit eating a week ago, which is very strange. The dog didn’t know where James was and James didn’t know where the dog was and believe it or not, they both stopped eating at about the same time.
Since the reunion, both James and his best friend have made a complete turnaround. And Bubba now has carte blanche to visit James in the hospital whenever he wants.
If you think Roman Catholic priests don’t know how to have fun, think again.
American Reverends David Rider and John Gibson are in seminary at the elite Pontifical North American College in Rome, just up the hill from the Vatican. During a fundraiser at the college, the men got into a lively dance battle that garnered a standing ovation…
