Our lives intersect with others all day, everyday. Sometimes we know these other lives well; frequently, though, the points of connection are brief and transient. Who are these people? How might they tell their own stories?  What thoughts preoccupy their minds? What joys and troubles are coursing through their feelings?

Did you Read in Forbes that Orange County is the No 8 Hippest city to live  
Behind the Numbers
“Cool” is defined by Merriam-Webster’s dictionary as “very good; fashionable.” Of course what, exactly, is good and fashionable is very much in the eye of the beholder. We sought to quantify it in terms of cities, ranking the 65 largest Metropolitan Statistical Areas and Metropolitan Divisions (areas that include cities and their surrounding suburbs that are defined by the U.S. Office of Management and Budget) based on seven data points weighted evenly.

We need to set boundaries and allow them choices within those boundaries and that should help them become responsible … (0 comments)
