‘Portland Retro Gaming Expo’ Breathes New Life to Old Video Games

If there's enough of a fanbase, there's a convention for it out there. Comic book fans have Comic Cons. Coffee lovers have Coffee Fest and just about anything else you can think of. There's even a 'Hello Kitty Con' in LA. Video games are no exception as they're a multi-billion dollar industry. Over the weekend, I attended the Portland Retro Gaming Expo in Portland Oregon. It's a great way to showcase the roots of video gaming from where it began to where it's going.

How to Understand What People are Saying When They Slur Their Words

The other day as I was helping my daughter get in the car, I saw a man coming toward us. He was walking with a strut somewhere between a pimp stride and a drunk man walking an invisible tightrope.

I didn't pay much attention as I was rushing my daughter to get in the car and buckle up. When he made his way to me I could tell that he wasn't all there. He didn't seem drunk or even high.

Why Elementary Schools Need to Stop Giving Out Homework [POLL]

Homework is one of those things that comes with school. You go to school, you have homework, you do it (hopefully) and carry on with the rest of your day. The other day, my daughter came home with a few sheets of homework that was to be turned in by the end of the week. It's enough homework to easily add two hours of work at home, which also means two extra hours that my wife or I will have to attend to helping her. When will she have time to just be a kid?
