Saying that there are a ton of sites for kids on the Internet is like saying there’s a lot of sand on the beach.  Sifting through all the sites out there to find the good and avoid the bad can be quite the daunting task especially with all the new sites popping up.  Should my Continue Reading →
theft
Losing certain objects is like losing certain parts of our personal lives.   We can set stuff down and forget to pick it up, or get our entire bag stolen at a coffee shop or airport.  It seems like we had it one second and the next it’s gone.  Whether it happens through villainy or absentmindedness, Continue Reading →
According to a survey released by the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children not enough parents in the United States know vital statistics about their children: height, hair color, eye color, weight, etc.  Young children change in physical appearance so rapidly that it can be a challenge to keep up with this information.  And Continue Reading →
The Bachelorette
Did you watch this week’s final episode of The Bachelorette?  Ashley finally chose the bachelor she wants to spend the rest of her life with…and he chose her too.  Even though the season started back in May and finished in August, the actual events that took place happened over a mere 6 weeks or less.  Continue Reading →

The Bachelorette
Did you watch last night’s episode of The Bachelorette?  After weeks of anticipation, Ashley finally went on her hometown dates with the remaining four bachelors, Ben, Constantine, JP, and Ames.  Every visit to the ‘in-law families’ was like a scene one would imagine when thinking of life in America – everyone gathered to meet the Continue Reading →
Leiby Kletzky
At almost nine-years-old, Leiby Kletzky was flexing his muscle. He wanted to walk home by himself. His father practiced the route with him and, on a fateful day in July, it was agreed that his mother would meet him half way. As you know, the plan went terribly wrong. Leiby got confused, made a wrong Continue Reading →
Facial Recognition
There was an interesting article on the AP this week entitled, “Israel blocks airborne protest, questions dozens.” It described how Israeli security used social media sites to compile a “blacklist” of undesirable individuals and then prevented many of them from entering the country. It’s a good read if you’re interested in Palestinian/Israeli politics. I have Continue Reading →
