Senior Citizens Are Replacing Teenagers as Fast-Food Workers
The sullen teenager grinding through a restaurant shift after school was once a pop culture cliche—as American as curly fries.
Nowadays, Brad Hamilton, the teen played by Judge Reinhold in “Fast Times at Ridgemont High,” would probably be too young to work at the fictional Captain Hook Fish and Chips. That’s because senior citizens are taking his place—donning polyester, flipping patties and taking orders. They’re showing up at casual dining chains such as Bob Evans and fast-food operators like McDonald’s Corp., which says it plans to make senior citizens one hiring focus in the coming year.
The skills kids need to avoid getting fooled by fake news
One day your kids are learning to walk and the next they're on their own sharing Russian propaganda on Youtube and Facebook.
You might think your great-uncle using an old desk top to "surf the internets" is the person at risk of accidentally spreading "fake news" on social networks, but kids these days aren't always faring so much better.
A large-scale study by the Stanford Graduate School of Education found that young people at every stage from middle school to college were consistently unable to differentiate news from advertising, or false information from the truth, a state of affairs the researchers described as “bleak.”

'My heart melted': Woman captures the sweet moment a man cradles a mother's sleeping baby in a doctor's waiting room so she can fill out paperwork
This the touching moment a man helped a mother in the waiting room of an Alabama doctor's office by cradling her baby boy so she could fill out some paperwork.
Jade West carried her sleeping son Jayce into the doctor's office in Florence, north of Birmingham, last week.
She was struggling to work out how to hold her baby and fill out the paperwork when Joe Hale stepped in to offer his assistance.
Mom Culture on Instagram Is a Toxic Lie
Her face was practically a Sephora ad and her hair, a cascade of smooth, shiny, strategically mussed waves. She was holding her newborn with glossy manicured nails in a slightly messy room—a burp cloth on the arm of the couch, a pacifier on the table, toys on the floor. The caption of the Instagram photo began, “Life isn’t always picture-perfect.” I wondered how she had the time to do her hair and makeup when I couldn’t remember the last time I showered. I was holding my own newborn, so I couldn’t throw my phone across the room out of sheer frustration. Instead, I cried. A lot.
G-ROD TO MACHINE GUN KELLY, "PAY UP OR I'M SUING!!"
Machine Gun Kelly's fight with Gabriel "G-Rod" Rodriguez could spill from a hotel lobby and into a courtroom -- G-Rod's threatening to sue if MGK doesn't pony up for the beatdown.

AMERICA’S MOTHERS ARE ISOLATED, ANXIOUS, AND DEPRESSED—HERE’S WHY
New Jersey-based magazine editor Jenny Jones (at her request, we’re using a pseudonym) had the perfect pregnancy. “I was super healthy, I worked out four to five times a week, I felt great,” she tells me. The 32-year-old, established in her career and marriage, felt ready to welcome her new baby girl into her life. “Everything was falling into place,” she says.
Then, she gave birth, and everything fell out of place. Nothing went according to her expectations, beginning with the actual delivery and how exhausted (to put it mildly) she found herself in its aftermath. “I emerged from the hospital feeling like I had been in an underground bunker for a year fighting a war,” she says. Things didn’t get easier from there. Jones struggled with a continued sleep deficit, a constant feeling of overwhelm, and physical pain. Really struggled. “I woke up on day four and was like, ‘The way I’m feeling isn’t normal.’ So, I dragged my husband to my OB and just cried. I was like, ‘I can’t do this. I just want to run away. This is not my life.’”

Don't Project a Sexual Identity Onto Little Kids
A smiling infant boy is not a “ladykiller.” A toddler offering an adult a cookie is not a “flirt.” Literally nothing a baby does needs to be turned into a romantic moment, so let’s stop saying things that imply otherwise.
It’s extremely weird to imply that babies are crushing on each other or even crushing on adults, but it happens all the time. Gender is gradually being released from a rigid binary and human sexuality exists on a wide spectrum of desire. You have no idea who that little adorable lump is going to grow up to be. So why is it so common to pretend that kids who can barely talk are in love with each other?
The closest I came to a good mother was my great aunt Mo. She would sit me on the kitchen table and patiently make me art out of paper. I liked the planes because she made them fly. She was always warm and diligent. Her hugs were from purity and always knew when I needed them. She had three children that always regarded me whose heart I embraced too. She wasn't perfect but she was a good mother because she was beloved to the end. 10-Oct-2018
No one cares about the environment because God created everything to destruct. They bloat the planet with children so they can watch them go boom. 08-Oct-2018
