Twice a day, Koen Hughes’s medicine alarm beeps and sputters. He yells out across the kitchen to his father, retired Army Staff Sgt. Jonah Hughes, an Iraq war veteran, who suffers from such a severe brain injury that it’s hard for him to remember things like whether he showered, and sometimes how to shower.
In households nationwide, hundreds of thousands of wounded parents have come home from the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, and their children are struggling to navigate the invisible wounds — traumatic brain injuries and post-traumatic stress disorder, which together afflict an estimated 30 percent of the 2.7 million former troops.

Nice to see that they kept one thing from the Star Wars Expanded Universe - Luke and the gang still working way into their old age. :p

Make way for penguins!
 
It's a penguin parade! Our African blackfooted penguins waddle and wander through the Aquarium on occasional outings our staff designs to keep these inquisitive animals happy and healthy. Watch our live penguin cam: http://mbayaq.co/1f8cXTu

Saw this in the #Nerdfighteria , today.  Such truth.  I feel I owe my friends an apology.  Look, just because I do not feel compelled to beat you over the head with yesterday's news when you mess up doesn't mean I don't care about you!

"It's almost enough to make you wonder if the human psyche might not
be built for life in a war zone."
We sent a writer out to Vietnam to speak with Nguyen Hoa Giai. He fought as a Viet Cong from the late 1950s to the end of the war in the mid-'70s. Here's what he told us.

I expect all Wisconsinites to sign this.  I expect to be disappointed, but I'll expect, all the same.
 
April 9 is Stand Up 4 Transportation day. Let's tell Congress that healthy infrastructure leads to a strong economy, healthy environment, public safety and a strong and mobile nation. Sign the petition today:
#SU4T  
Our transportation network is the foundation of our economy and our local communities. Congress needs to provide long-term investment that will enable us to repair, maintain, and adequately expand our roads, bridges, ports, rail systems, and public transportation. Sign the petition today!

Approximately 5 weeks old, they will need fostering for 3 weeks...if you are interested please contact Margo at Nine Lives 6503681365.

I'm probably not "disabled enough", anymore, to be sharing this, but I dealt with this for over half my life.  Maybe I'm still dealing with it, now, but I'm too close to the situation and too jaded to notice.  Anyway, this is worth sharing.

Calling someone inspirational seems nice, right? And it is – when it's reserved for people who you actually know. But when you tell a stranger or acquaintance with a disability that they're inspiring just for living, you might be offending them with your unspoken assumptions. Read this a

It's nice when it's simple.  That should be good for your Monday Motivation.  Guess what number one is...
From a wheel-shaped water container for the developing world to a lamp powered only by gravity, these seven inventions are saving lives through simplicity.

This restaurant has ruined all pizzerias for me. Unlike many others, when they say wood-fired pizza, they *mean* wood-fired - it isn't just an added flavor. Their ingredients taste fresh, and their pasta isn't just a noodley version of their pizza. If you like food with a Mediterranean flare, this is one place you don't want to miss!
