While texting on Tinder, she suggested I might get to play with her kitty. We agreed that we would take her cat out to the park some time but that we would start with dinner and a drink. There were no other hints to me that anything thrilling might happen beyond my riding my motorcycle from Denver to Boulder for the meeting. Sitting together at an Italian restaurant, we got past the cat conversation and progressed to politics and music, jokes and laughter. We were communicating freely and enjoying each other’s company — pretty much everything I wanted out of a first date. As the waitress picked up the check, my date invited me back to her … [Read more...] about I’m a Veteran With PTSD. The Medication I Take Makes Dating Difficult.

Two-year-old Kayden Elijah Kinckle had his right foot and left leg amputated in January. But the little boy certainly hasn't lost spirit. Kayden recently took his first steps on his new prosthetics with the aid of a walker. In a YouTube video posted by his mother, the little boy bears a huge grin, exclaiming "I got it!" with each step he takes. Along with the YouTube video, his mother posted the story of Kayden's spirited triumph over a series of health problems. While in utero, Kayden developed a condition called omphalocele, a kind of abdominal wall defect that causes the intestines, liver, bladder and sometimes other organs to develop outside the body. Doctors told Kayden's mother, Nikki, that he wouldn't survive and recommended she terminate the pregnancy. She also learned that the umbilical cord was wrapped around his feet and pinned under her pelvic bone. But Mom wouldn't give up and the little boy has certainly defied the odds. The family has created a Facebook page to honor … [Read more...] about CBS News Logo Toddler amputee takes first steps, exclaims “I got it!”
Last Updated Oct 22, 2010 6:47 PM EDT When BNET heard that hotelier Chip Conley's Facebook photos caused a mild uproar among his employees, we invited the entrepreneur to share his story. After all, usually it's the boss that's concerned about his staff's social media habits, not the other way around. I'm grappling with a question of our times: When does something splashed on Facebook or broadcast via Twitter become bad for my company? The problem is not with my staff but with me. Specifically, photos that I posted on my Facebook page in September after returning from Burning Man, the weeklong anything-goes festival. Yes, I know it isn't the typical CEO getaway. That's part of the problem. First, a little bit about me. I run Joie de Vivre, a company that operates a collection of boutique hotels in California. I founded the business 22 years ago, when I was 26 and a freshly minted MBA from Stanford. The first property I bought was a pay-by-the hour motel in a seedy part of San … [Read more...] about Chip Conley: Should I Take My Burning Man Pics off Facebook?
Adam Taylor: NBC USA! USA! FTW! FTW! Well, here we are – the finals. It seems like only yesterday that we started this journey of dance together. Where does the time go? It’s only an hour show tonight, so we jump right into things with our hosts, wave wave finger gun the judges, and then Susie Castillo poses a question to the audience. How would you feel if you were attending an event hosted by Tiger Woods, but you never got to see him swing a golf club? Oh no … please no. Noooooooooo! *whine* Come on SHOW! Don’t do this to me. The final was supposed to be a Lahrd free zone! *end whine* *sigh* But no, nobody gets away clean. We’re about to be treated to a performance from the King High Lahrd himself, Michael Flatley. He starts by giving a nice little tribute to the hard work and aspirations of his immigrant parents, and says this is his way of saying thank you to the US. Apparently, “Thank you” in the ancient and mystic language of … [Read more...] about Superstars of Dance: I get by with a little help from my friends
Amid rising frustration within his party, Speaker Michael Madigan on Friday said he shoulders “responsibility” for failing to do more to ensure equality in the statehouse and on the campaign trail.The letter sent to lawmakers late Friday afternoon marked a reversal from just a few days ago, when Madigan allowed his campaign attorney to do most of the talking about the speaker’s handling of a sexual harassment complaint against one of his top political aides.“I would never condone, sweep under the rug or refuse to take any step to ensure we did not eradicate any behavior of this kind. I understand the ‘knock it off’ mentality is not enough, and we must, and will, do better moving forward,” said Madigan, a reference to a phrase he used last fall when the issue of sexual harassment surfaced at the Capitol. “We must do better. We will do better.”Madigan, who doubles as chairman of the Illinois Democratic Party, also revealed that he has … [Read more...] about Speaker Madigan: ‘I take responsibility’ for not doing enough on sexual harassment issue
