Huffington Post - 4 months
On March 22, 2011, Senior Police Officer Buddy Christian was shot and killed while responding to an attack on a fellow officer. The 34-year-old Georgia cop left behind a wife, Melissa, daughter, Callie, and son, Wyatt.

What Adoption For Older Foster Youth Really Means
Huffington Post - about 1 year
When I was 16 years old and in foster care in Tennessee, people told me I was unadoptable. But I desperately wanted a family. I enlisted the help of a judge, even the commissioner of the Department of Children's Services, and was adopted just a week before my 18th birthday. I'm honored to be a part of AdoptUsKids' National Adoption Month campaign "We Never Outgrow the Need for Family." It's so true, and we all know it. Take a look around your Thanksgiving table this week and imagine your life without a family. No one to argue politics with or watch football and those sappy Christmas movies with. No one to join you in the cold Black Friday shopping lines. No one who understands the importance of your family's hashbrown casserole as much as you do. We have a lot to be grateful for and this holiday season let's not forget about the more than 415,000 youth in foster care especially older youth. These youth are the most likely to get overlooked for adoption, but they shouldn' ...

How Chicago Edtech Companies Are Rising to the Head of the Class
Huffington Post - almost 2 years
You could put it on the blackboard! Yes, Chicago is an epicenter for educational innovation. Earlier this month, two Chicago-based education technology companies - ThinkCERCA (who we told you about last year) and Classkick - raised institutional venture capital rounds. And while both companies are individually impressive and already influential in the burgeoning edtech sector, they have a lot of corporate classmates in the Windy City that are also attracting strategic and pure venture capital. As we write about regularly, instructional delivery models in education - particularly within K-12 - are rapidly transforming. Educators have access to more digital resources than at any point in history, and are using a combination of apps, videos, and websites to flip their classrooms, personalize instruction, and assess student performance both individually and in aggregate. The Chicago-based edtech startup where I work, appoLearning, recently unveiled a universal search engine that ...

A Tour of the NYPL Stacks
Huffington Post - about 3 years
Yesterday I was invited to tour the stacks at the 42nd Street Library as part of a delegation from the PEN American Center, which the NYPL is hoping to win over to its cause. The purpose of the tour was to convince us that the demolition of the stacks is necessary and a contribution to service and scholarship. What I saw convinced me of the opposite. Before the removal of the books We were led through a floor of the stacks that once held three million books directly below the Rose Reading Room, making it possible for a book to be delivered to a library user minutes after it was requested. The rows and rows of empty stacks were a sad sight. There was also a striking discrepancy between what we were seeing and the talking points that our hosts, Chief Library Officer Mary Lee Kennedy, and Vice President of Communications and Marketing Ken Weine, kept repeating as we walked. What they said was: Look what bad shape the stacks are in, and before we removed the books, you would smell a te ...

Rutherford Road and St. Helena Highway
San Francisco Chronicle - over 3 years
Built upon a former Mexican land grant, which Gen. Mariano Guadalupe Vallejo deeded to early pioneer George Yount in 1838, today this small community in the Napa Valley is dotted with family estates offering wine tasting among lush vineyards, which have produced highly acclaimed wines that have garnered international attention.

Great White Shark Takes a Taste of Fishing Boat
Brick Patch - over 3 years
  Rob Pompilio and a few friends left out of Little Egg Harbor for a fishing trip last Sunday, and they found their biggest catch about 30 miles off Atlantic City. This one was caught on camera: a great white shark they estimated to be at least 16 feet. The shark circled the boat and even left scratch marks on the bow, where it tried to taste the boat — "not violently, just checking it out," Pompilio said. Read and watch more about the encounter in this NBC40 report: Fishermen catch great white shark on camera. To follow the travels of a typical great white shark, visit the Ocearch Global Shark Tracker. On the site, follow the path of a tagged shark named Mary Lee. Since the fall she has ranged from Cape Cod to Jacksonville, Fla., to Bermuda with no apparent migratory pattern. Much of her time has been spent along the coasts of Florida, Georgia and South Carolina. See also: Real-Life 'Jaws' Arrives in the Hamptons
