Your wait at the Airport might be getting shorter

American Airlines passengers could start spending less time in security lines. The airline and the Transportation Security Administration have partnered to bring a state-of-the-art baggage screening system to four hub airports.
The new automated screening lanes will direct bags with potential threats to a different area, leaving bags behind them uninterrupted. The system is expected to cut wait times by 30-percent. The TSA will be setting up the new screening lanes this fall at LAX, Chicago O’ Hare, Dallas Fort Worth and Miami International Airports. The airline also announced it will start testing CT scanning at Phoenix’s Sky Harbor Airport. CT scanning will allow things like liquids and laptops to stay inside carry-on bags through security checkpoints. The process will be tested this fall and if all goes well, the TSA will be setting them up nationwide. Source: Yahoo! Finance

Top Baby Names so far in 2016

This week, baby name site Nameberry ranked which names attracted the most views of the nearly 40 million visits to its name pages in the first half of 2016. The list gauges the baby names that are winning the most attention from parents-to-be right now and may predict which names will be used most for babies in the future.
There’s a new girls’ name at the head of the baby names popularity list for the first half of 2016, with Olivia claiming Nameberry’s official no. 1 spot.
Olivia replaces Charlotte, the girls’ top name for 2015, which slips to no. 3. Amelia, Ava, and Isla round out the girls’ top five. Five new girls’ names ascend to the top 10 in 2016: Arabella, Aurora, Adeline, Isabella, and Mia.Ezra holds his place at the top of the boys’ popular names list, a position the biblical name claimed in 2015.

The top five boys’ names retain the order they held last year: Ezra, Asher, Atticus, Declan, and Oliver. Only two names are new to the boys’ top 10 in 2016: Levi and Wyatt.
The boys’ name that’s rising in popularity the fastest — moving up 49 places since last year — is Aryan. An Indo-Iranian name that means warrior or honorable, Aryan is currently no. 697 on the official U.S. popularity list. (But its controversial nature related to white supremacy undoubtedly accounts for some of its attention.)
Other hot baby names for boys, all up more than 40 places, are John, Tobias, Daniel, Xavier, and Maxwell.

For girls, the name that’s most notably rising in popularity is Sadie, up 48 places. Other girls’ names up more than 30 places in 2016 are Elise, Astrid, Isabella, and Thea.
Several unusual names made their way onto the 2016 top 100. You may start hearing of more baby girls named Anouk, Cecilia, Freya, and Ophelia and more baby boys named Alistair, Hugo, and Lucian.
Here’s the top 10 for girls and boys for the first half of 2016. The full top 100 for both genders appears on Nameberry.

2)Mosquitoes are the only ones that look comfortable
3)The central air bill just went through the roof

5)Your ice cream melted before you left Beef N Buns
6)You spent your day standing in front of the osculating fan
7)Your morning jog ended at the end of your driveway
8)You put deodorant under your knees
9) You sit inside the ice cooler
10) You actually can’t wait for January

June 27th is National HIV Testing Day

June 27th is National HIV Testing Day. Today is National HIV Testing Day. Why should you care? The CDC says one in six people don’t even know they have HIV. Over one-million people are currently living with the disease. Since the disease first surfaced in the early 1980s, it has killed more than 35-million people around the world.

The good news? Modern antiretroviral medications can keep people with HIV alive for decades. According to new research, a white gay man in America diagnosed with HIV today at age 20 can expect to live as long as any healthy man in the U.S.

Who should get tested? The CDC recommends that everyone between the ages of 13 and 64 get tested at least once for HIV. Women who are pregnant or are planning to become pregnant should also get tested. At-risk groups, such as men who have sex with men, intravenous drug users, and sex workers should be tested every three to six months.

A few other facts to consider:

  • Gay, bisexual, and other men who have sex with men (MSM), particularly young black/African American MSM, are most seriously affected by HIV.
  • Young people aged 13 to 24 accounted for an estimated 26% of all new HIV infections in the United States in 2010.
  • Almost 60% of youth with HIV in the United States don’t know they are infected.
  • The biggest challenge is perception, you know, the good ole “it’ll never happen to me” nonsense. It can and it will if you’re not protecting yourself – and it only takes once! So be smart AND GET TESTED! It’s as simple as a saliva swab. Don’t know where to go? Visit
