Add the White House on Snapchat to get some different angles of the State of the Union address
Yahoo News - about 1 year
It’s not enough for the president of the United States to reach the country through speeches and statements alone. No, these days you need Twitter, Facebook, and Snapchat. That’s right, alongside your friend’s Snapchat stories, you’ll now be able to view stories from the White House administration. The White House joining Snapchat is just one of many methods the administration — and politicians in general — are fighting for attention from millennials and Generation Z. It’s not random that the administration joined Snapchat the day before President Barack Obama’s final State of the Union address. In a blog post announcing the administration has joined Snapchat, Joshua Miller, director of product management, said the “Official Story will take you behind the scenes of the White House’s State of the Union preparations, with footage and angles you won’t find anywhere else.” Who knows? There are more than 100 million daily active Snapchat users, and the administration’s stories just might be ...

Why Do Narcissists Lose Popularity Over Time?
The Huffington Post - about 1 year
Narcissism has been something of a mystery to psychologists. With narcissists, things tend to be extreme: the good is really good, and the bad is really bad. Narcissism expert W. Keith Campbell compares interacting with narcissists to eating chococate cake: "When I eat chococlate cake, 20 minutes later I'm under my desk wanting to die. When I eat broccoli, in 20 minutes I feel good. But given the choice I always eat the cake." On the one hand, the narcissist's charisma and self-confidence can be highly alluring. Psychologists Mitja Back and colleagues found that narcissists are indeed more popular at first acquaintance, and its due to four particular cues that make up their “charismatic air”*: Attractiveness (flashy, neat attire) Competence (self-assured behavior) Interpersonal Warmth (charming glances at strangers) Humor (witty verbal expressions) On the other hand, research shows that the initial popularity of narcissists at the early stages of inter ...

Joshua John Miller: My Brother's Struggle For Fathers' Rights
Huffington Post - over 3 years
If you're gay, read this. If you're straight, read this. There's a war going on in California that affects any of us that plan to be parents one day-- especially those of us (gay or straight) who may end up using alternative methods of conception. As a gay man who's trying to start a family with my partner, we're lucky to live in a state that's historically been progressive in regards to non-traditional families-- but as in the case of my brother Jason Patric, there are still ways, no matter what your orientation, to fall through the cracks-- unless, that is, he can have his day in court to demand partial custody of the son he has spent the past three year co-raising. And to have that, we need help. On a personal note: I know the challenges of being raised by a single parent-- for much of my childhood, I wished that I could have had my own father be a part of the fabric of my growing up. Many years after my father's death, I was able to forge a friendship with my half-b ...

Allergic To The Cold: Kids Suffering From Rare Disorder Risk Hives, Anaphylactic Shock
Huffington Post - over 4 years
Connor Frankenfeld first developed the strange rash when he was 3 years old. Connor's parents and doctors were mystified, but the rash only got worse. It took a year for a specialist to finally diagnose Connor's condition: The little boy was allergic to the cold. Cold urticaria is a very rare condition affecting about one in 100,000 people, according to ABC News. In fact, Connor's doctor, William Lanting with Colorado's Asthma and Allergy Center of the Rockies, said he's only seen four or five cases in three decades of allergy specializing, according to ABC 7. People with cold urticaria can develop redness, itching, swelling and hives on the skin after coming in contact with cold temperatures, according to the Mayo Clinic. Normal activities become potentially life-threatening. For example, swimming in cold water is the most common cause of a severe, whole-body reaction leading to fainting, shock and even death. Grant Schlager, a 12 year-old from Minnesota, takes a twi ...

Families paint their hearts out for banners to welcome home Marines from Afghanistan, Iraq
Fox News - over 4 years
Days before Lance Cpl. Kenny Milton was scheduled to return home from Afghanistan, his wife sat on the floor of a sweltering helicopter hangar, painting on poster board. "My husband, my heart, my hero," she drew on the board while around her other wives and kids of deployed Marines made up placards for their own loved ones. Even though she had drawn four other signs over the past few weeks, she came to the banner-marking party at New River Air Station with a friend to paint more. "It's important to me that my husband, every which way he turns, he sees something that has his name on it because he knows how much I've missed him, and I know how much he's missed me," said Selina Milton, whose husband was returning after seven months away from home on his first deployment. About 30 families participated in the banner-making party, one of many held at New River and nearby Camp Lejeune as troops return from both Iraq and Afghanistan. The banners ...

Senate postpones vote on National Grid bill defeated by House
This webpage is not available - almost 5 years
Senate President M. Teresa Paiva Weed on Wednesday afternoon abruptly postponed a scheduled vote on a bill to change how National Grid deals with customer defaults, a week after House lawmakers unexpectedly defeated the measure. The vote was postponed until April 26 at the request of its sponsor, state Sen. Joshua Miller, D-Providence, Senate spokesman Greg Pare told WPRI.com. The bill would amend the Henry Shelton Act to let National Grid recoup losses from low-income residents’ unpaid bills by charging other ratepayers, rather than writing them off as bad debt. A spokesman for House Speaker Gordon Fox says the House may vote on the proposal again if the Senate passes its version of the bill and sends it over to the other chamber. • Related: Fox may bring back defeated National Grid bill if Senate OKs it (April 9)
