This Super Mario Hair Will Absolutely Blow Your Mind
Huffington Post - 4 months
From rose gold tresses to hidden rainbow hair to denim hair, we thought we’d seen it all with hairstyle trends. However, this Super Mario hairstyle, originally reported by Harper’s Bazaar, definitely takes it to a whole new level. And we are loving it.

PRAYER CAN TURN TO PANIC DURING RESTAURANT OUTINGS
Yahoo News - almost 2 years
DEAR ABBY: I'm comfortable with my faith and pray before a meal at home and at friends' houses. We have become friendly with individuals from our church, and on many occasions have gone out to eat together at restaurants. When the meal is brought out, it has become a custom to pray. I feel uncomfortable praying aloud in public, and have seen others at our table already eating when someone says, "Let's pray."My wife tells me to just go with it. But sometimes when the praying goes on for a lengthy time, I start to get sweaty and on the verge of a panic attack. ...

How Anyone Can Turn Into A Creative Genius
Huffington Post - almost 2 years
A few years ago I was invited to give a TED talk about crowdsourcing. When I started to prepare for the talk, I brainstormed ways I could share my ideas in a more creative and engaging manner. When I hit a roadblock in my thinking, I turned to my crowd of friends and followers on Facebook and Twitter and asked them, "How do you think I can best create an 'Aha' moment for people who are trying to make sense of crowdsourcing?" Instead of brainstorming solo, I decided that there was no better way to explain crowdsourcing then to ask my crowd how to do so. I call this practice Mindsharing, a purposeful and pointed crowdsourcing effort to access the collective wisdom of a big crowd. After seeking advice from my crowd I received many ideas about how to approach my TED presentation, some bad and some good. The most interesting piece of advice that I received was from a sixteen-year-old who suggested I recreate a famous crowdsourcing experiment where eight hundred people at a country fa ...

Non-Profit Helps Homeless Man Turn The Key to a New Life
Huffington Post - about 2 years
Founded by singer/songwriter Caitlin Crosby, The Giving Keys employ men and women in Los Angeles looking to transition out of homelessness to hand engrave keys with words of encouragement. Her story began with a hotel room key. After realizing that in a way all humans are like old keys -- unique, flawed, scarred and at risk of being discarded -- she wanted these keys to have their purpose renewed over and over again. By taking old keys and transforming them into jewelry and accessories etched with "hope," "believe," and "dream" among other inspirational words, they serve a special purpose to the wearer until they decide to pay it forward and pass the key long to someone else. On January 28, The Giving Keys brought one of their hard working men on as a full time employee after his 6 month trial period. Each time The Giving Keys brings on a full time employee they hold a "Bell Ringing Ceremony." We caught up with Robert Benson, the newest full time employee at The Giving Keys to h ...

Science Can Turn Cow Poop Into Clean Water
Yahoo News - over 2 years
Scientists at Michigan State University say they have developed a system that turns cow manure into clean water, while extracting valuable nutrients and helping the environment, which is as gross as it is impressive.   The McLanahan Nutrient Separation System uses an anaerobic digester (a machine that takes waste and creates energy) coupled with an ultrafiltration, air stripping, reverse osmosis system. “If you have 1,000 cows on your operation, they produce about 10 million gallons of manure a year,” said Steve Safferman, an associate professor of biosystems and agricultural engineering at Michigan State University, who helped develop the project.

Violent Video Games Can Turn Kids Into Progressive Intellectuals
Forbes - about 3 years
According to a number of recent articles like this one from the BBC, “Violent video games leave teens 'morally immature.’'” The BBC writes about work done by Mirjana Bajovic, a researcher at Brock University, who published an article in the journal Educational Media International entitled: “Violent video gaming and moral reasoning in adolescents: is there an association?” Understanding what Bajovic’s study discovered depends on how one defines moral maturity and how one contextualizes the research. Consider for example, this 2011 study that also came out of Brock University which discovered that it is competition, not violence, that makes gamers aggressive. While it seems to contradict the aforementioned study, the two researchers were, in fact, asking different questions. We have many loaded words between these two studies--moral maturity, aggression, violent, competition--all of which are used and defined in different ways depending on the particular research. Don’t jump to conclusion ...
