For dads as well.
I love my job. I work a 24 hour shift every weekend at a Domestic Violence Shelter. I essentially just play with kids and talk with moms about how to be happy on their own. In the time that I have …

So awesome!
The launch and landing could become a familiar sight in spaceflight, allowing rockets to be refurbished and reused.

If you are shopping for a TV that will also work great as a large PC monitor, this is a really nice comparison review. The site also has in-depth reviews for other TV shopping criteria as well. It's the most informative and well-composed resource I've found, and pretty comprehensive for the major brands and models.

I'm going for the HTC One A9 instead of Nexus 5X
I'll admit it was a bit of an impulse choice, but the A9 just seemed to hit a sweet spot of my must-haves, namely a great price for a mid-to-upper range phone with fingerprint reader and good camera -- and runs Android 6 Marshmallow.

At $399 (pre-sale price for this week) it is actually cheaper than the 32GB Nexus 5X, not counting the $50 pre-sale play credit.  (I actually already have $40 of play credit that I don't know what to do with... so another $50 didn't have much appeal to me.)  Finally, the A9's premium finishes and expandable microSD storage were nice plusses that helped seal the deal, and the Uh-oh protection is nothing to sneeze at.

Probably my main concern with the A9 is the battery (2100mAh vs 2700mAh in the 5X) and that it's not on USB C.  I really have little faith in the microUSB connectors that seem to fail me all the time.
A smaller thing I'll miss is the front stereo speakers, but really when I think about how often I've made good use of my current HTC One's front speakers... it's not much at all.  When do I actually watch media on my phone?  Usually it's when I'm in a setting when I would be using headphones anyway (i.e. on a bus/train/plane).
Lastly but not least, while I do prefer the pure Android experience and the prompt updates for Nexus devices, my experience with HTC's Sense augmentations have been positive, and I have faith that they'll continue their good track record of updates and the openness to their development community.

With the sale on Nexus 5x at $80 off, it's enough to upset the value equation. I went ahead and ordered the Nexus 5x (32GB) at $349 instead, since the HTC One A9 (Red) that I ordered earlier hasn't even shipped yet!

"...upon closer examination make you start to wonder if someone in the writers’ room had access to a time machine."
Last night, I sat down to dinner and an episode of Star Trek: The Next Generation. (I prefer the original series, but there's only so many times you can watch Kirk & Co. fight the space-nazis before it starts to get old.) I picked one in the first season, called “Home Soil”, where Picard and his ...

When the left and right start sounding alike on racism and xenophobia, history has taught me to listen

Taiwan is a beautiful place to visit, and if you ever do, be sure to explore the multitude of aboriginal cultures and attractions.
The imposing stone head of a tribal elder welcomes about 200,000 visitors per month to a museum in the jungle-covered mountains south of Taipei. Inside, photos and paintings depict Atayal aborigines bearing black V-shaped tattoos from ears to mouth, traditional markers of beauty and passage into adulthood for both genders.

Convenient location near freeway exit and shopping area with restaurants. Room is decently clean though showing its age. The air unit spewed a terrible smell when it was put on heater by mistake. Besides that issue, A/C worked fine and cooled well. Staff was friendly and helpful. Included breakfast was all right. Complementary Wi-Fi worked well.

Had a short stay here for business, all of six hours, between a late late flight and an early morning meeting. The bed was comfy and the suite was clean. The view was not bad too.
