Elisabeth Hasselbeck Is Leaving Fox News
Huffington Post - over 1 year
Conservative commentator Elisabeth Hasselbeck will be leaving the airwaves for the foreseeable future. The "Fox & Friends" co-host will say goodbye to the Fox News morning program in late December, a move she says will allow her to focus on raising her children. "Oftentimes, the most difficult decisions are between two great things," she said Monday in a statement. "Throughout my 14 years working in television, I have never experienced a more positive and thoughtful atmosphere than Fox News Channel, thanks to the strong leadership of [Fox News Chairman and CEO] Roger Ailes, who has created the best working environment a woman and mother could ask for." A number of rotating guest co-hosts will fill Hasselbeck's position until a permanent replacement is named. "Elisabeth and I discussed this at length over several weeks, and while I would love for her to continue here, I respect her incredibly difficult, yet deeply personal decision," Ailes said in a statement.

Yahoo News - over 1 year
Elisabeth Hasselbeck ripped into White House press secretary Josh Earnest on “Fox and Friends” Wednesday for President Barack Obama’s response to the terrorist attacks in Paris. Hasselbeck characterized Obama’s response as “aloof, apathetic … and quite cavalier.” Hasselbeck also took issue with Obama calling the attacks a “setback” in the fight against terrorism. In addition, she was unhappy with Secretary of State John Kerry, who said he could see the rationale for January’s Charlie Hebdo attack, but not for Friday’s assault which left up to 125 people dead.

Smart Cookies: What I Learned From Top Girl Scout Cookie Sellers
Huffington Post - almost 2 years
Every year, thousands of people eagerly anticipate the arrival of their Girl Scout cookies. I'm one of them. I can't resist buying one or two (dozen) boxes. It's a terrific fundraiser for a great organization, and since Girl Scout cookies only come around once a year, you have to buy them - and eat them - when you can. I've been hoarding the last box of Thin Mints in the garage. (Don't tell my wife!) The average Girl Scout sells about 130 boxes. But last year, Katie Francis, a middle school student from Oklahoma City, blew that right out of the water. She officially shattered the 30-year-old record for most Girl Scout cookies sold in one year - a staggering 21,477 boxes. Talk about volume! Every year, the media features successful Girl Scout cookie peddlers like Francis. They're usually feel-good, fluffy stories. After all, who doesn't like to read about kids doing good things? But look beyond the cute kids and cookies, and you can garner some serious business intelligen ...

When the merge came, she lasted almost nine hours in the first individual immunity challenge in which contestants had to stand on a perch in the water for as long as possible. When the first vote came, her tribemate Jeff was voted out due to his previous votes cast against him. This led to another Kucha member Alicia being voted out and sent to the jury. She was next on the block when the biggest threat in her original tribe, Nick, won immunity, but she swayed the votes of Ogakor members Tina Wesson and Colby Donaldson her way, and had the villainous Jerri Manthey voted out. At the final five, her closest ally throughout the entire game, Rodger Bingham, was voted out. She then became the sole remaining Kucha member and was voted out, coming in fourth overall.
