Tips for traveling with young kids

Being hesitant to travel with young kids is understandable. Maybe you’ve experienced a toddler screaming for the entirety of a coast-to-coast flight. Worse, maybe that was your toddler. But saying your kids are too young to travel is a slippery slope. When will you know when they’re old enough? The fact is, the sooner you start taking trips with your kids, the sooner they’ll adapt to journeying. And the sooner they — and you — will reap the benefits of that travel. Here’s why you should trave...

Wake and Bake - Try These Weed-Infused Spa Treatments For 4/20

With April 20 around the corner, it's time to get your plans in order. Instead of partaking in 4/20's established tradition, this year test out other forms of cannabis consumption. Today's beauty shelves are stocked with products that contain cannabidiol (CBD) oil, the non-psychoactive ingredient derived from hemp that helps manage anxiety. And now that 10 states and Washington DC have legalized recreational use of cannabis, it's clear that the stigma surrounding marijuana is starting to shift. ...

Blond Girl with Bows

I got sick. Such bad timing because I had a million things on my list that I wanted to get finished before I leave for Washington DC next Monday. Instead I am moving at snail speed and hoping to get my voice back and stop coughing before I have to spend a week away from home. Sometimes life just happens, right?

NASA's administrator lavishly praised an influential Evangelical ministry during its $10,000-a-table fundraiser. Some experts say his speech violated the Constitution.

NASA administrator Jim Bridenstine gave a speech in February at a Christian ministry's fundraising dinner, which advertised $10,000-a-table sponsorships. NASA said Bridenstine was approved to attend the event in his official capacity. Bridenstine expressed his support for the ministry and its mission, saying he likes the idea of "institutional" but not "influential" separation of church and state. Some government-ethics experts said Bridenstine's speech ran afoul of the First Amendment of the ...

Eliot Spitzer, Your Dark Side and Being Calm

I had a very disturbing experience several months ago and I am almost reluctant to talk about it because it was so disturbing. I am hesitant because I recognize that your natural response might be to assume I am a little aberrated for being in the situation in the first place; however, I am human and must admit that at times I do find myself in situations that are a bit odd. This was one of the stranger situations I have encountered, and it really threw me into a tailspin. For several years a fr...

The biggest 4/20 parties in the US

April 20 is the unofficial-official cannabis consumer holiday. Even people who don’t partake know that 4/20 is a reference to marijuana, as seen by weed-friendly areas and hotels advertising as “4/20-friendly.” It’s a celebration, however, that’s usually enjoyed with a couple of friends or small group at home or in a semi-private section of a public park far, far away from children. Except, however, in a couple of notable cases. Ten states and Washington, DC, allow recreational cannabis, but ...
