Last week, I traveled to Boston for INBOUND 2015: an enormous inbound marketing event which housed roughly 14,000 sales and marketing professionals.

So cute
Teachers at Baden-Powell and St Peter's Church of England Junior School are known for delighting their students with a secret performance at each year's Christmas show. This year they outdid themselves with a "Let it Go" flashmob.

There was nothing like the magical moment when you finally convinced your parents to let you upgrade from Atari — with its infuriating Pitfall game — to the glory that was the original Nintendo Entertainment System. Watch modern teens interact with an NES console, and totally fail to recognize how awesome it is.

Last weekend my son earned a trip to the LEGO store to buy a few sets. In the area labeled "hard to find," he picked out the Research Institute — a LEGO Ideas set featuring three female scientists. I asked him what he liked about it, and he said, "Science. But it's not cool that it's all girls. It isn't fair. There should be at least one boy."

Always thought they shouldn't have such boy-specific sets.

Making a big deal out of pregnancy weight gain plays into women's insecurities and takes the focus away from the other zillion fascinating, difficult, exciting and miraculous aspects of having a baby.
I'll be the first one to tell you that talking about the hard parts of motherhood has tremendous value to other parents. Everyone struggles, and during those hard times we need to know we're not alone. We need to know that other women walked the same path and made it through.

Maternity leave policies in the United States are an embarrassment compared to other countries around the world. We asked moms to talk to us about what it was like leaving their babies to go back to work too quickly. The results are heartbreaking.

^___^
The new Ghostbusters cast has been revealed. Not everyone is excited about a female-led reboot. These sad manbabies who are particularly upset about the reboot really tug at our heartstrings. Where are they ever going to find action movies that star only men?

When a woman's right to breastfeed in public is infringed, women come out of the woodwork to point out that Mom could have simply used a cover and avoided all the drama. It never fails.

The only thing your daughter's hair has been missing is volume. Not Jersey Shore volume. We're talking traffic cone volume. Enter Pophead, the best thing that's ever been invented.

Over the weekend, hackers downloaded dozens of female celebrity nudes from the cloud and distributed them gleefully. Instead of focusing on the criminals who violated women's privacy and the pervs who delighted in the stolen photos, many focused on the so-called scandal. Your teenager probably checked out Jennifer Lawrence's nudes by third period today. Here's what you need to talk to him about.

Yesterday, Daniel Ashley Pierce thought his biggest problem was being late to work. Little did he know he'd end up being beaten by his grandmother and stepmother and kicked out of his family home. The 20-year-old Georgia man caught it all on tape.
