This an absolutely incredible audition from a young girl with a dream to be on stage in front of the world. She certainly got her dream and floored everyone who was watching. The judges and audience certainly got a treat by hearing her sing that day … WOW!
Arielle Baril may only be 11 years old, but this sweet girl can definitely sing! When she stepped on stage, no one expected this beautiful opera voice to come out. It amazed everyone watching and will put you in shock. Opera has a certain feel to it, and when the right voice is singing it, we get goosebumps. You almost feel that you are watching a live opera or you are at a play on Broadway.
No wonder the judges did something amazing for her at the end. It was well deserved! more >>
WASHINGTON — While composing the 30-page majority opinion in last Friday's U.S. Supreme Court 5-4 ruling that it's unconstitutional for states to ban same-sex marriages, Justice Anthony Kennedy ignored the rights of children to have both a mother and a father, Heritage Foundation senior fellow Ryan Anderson argued Tuesday.
Anderson, who authored a not-yet-released book in response to the court's decision titled Truth Overruled: The Future of Marriage and Religious Freedom, spoke on a Heritage Foundation panel and asserted that 78-year-old "swing vote" Kennedy overlooked the very reason states are involved in marriage in the first place — to ensure parental stability for children.
Anderson cited George Mason University law professor Helen Alvaré, who dissected Kennedy's opinion word-for-word, and stated that the words Kennedy used to justify his opinion had more to do with the rights of individuals to define who they are rather than the rights of children to benefit from the advantages of growing up in a traditional family setting. more >>
Sherri Shepherd was recently ordered to pay child support to her ex-husband, Lamar Sally, months after she was declared the legal mother of a surrogate baby she said she doesn't want. The ruling marks the end of a nearly year-long bitter divorce battle.
On Wednesday, it was reported that the former co-host of ABC's "The View," who is a devout Christian, must pay $4,100 per month in child support and this figure increases to $4,600 when 10-month-old baby Lamar Junior (L.J.) turns 13.
The exes previously agreed to have the baby boy via a surrogate while they were still married but their decision to separate last year complicated matters. Sally, 44, sued Shepherd, 48, for child support and won the case in April when a Pennsylvania judge ruled in his favor. The single mother is now listed as baby L.J.'s legal mother on his birth certificate even though she declared that she wants nothing to do with him. more >>
A die-hard Hillary Clinton supporter – a young, female Millennial – recently applied to be a fellow with the campaign and was accepted. However, she was asked to move out of state and work for free. It was hard not to laugh at her over-the-top, entitled millennial reaction published in USA Today: "Finding out that Hillary perpetuates the exploitation known as unpaid internships was like discovering that Santa wasn't real."
Millennials are in a tough position right now. They are hard pressed to find work, with 14% of them unemployed, others barely able to make it on a shoe-string budget, and most buried under massive student debt. Graduating college means facing the harsh reality of a suffering economy and businesses who are looking for the best of the best to fill positions. Yet even with a healthy job market, employers want experience to go along with that expensive degree, which means internships are huge assets to any education. more >>
If you grew up with a dog then you know how special it can be to watch them grow with you. From puppyhood on, a dog is nothing less than a perfect companion. In this video, you see how special a friendship like this can turn out.
It is no coincidence that children with dogs have a multitude of benefits. A study in Finland found that children with dogs in their household actually are less susceptible to colds and ear infections. Kids with dogs require fewer antibiotics because of this.
It is always heartwarming to hear about a story about a boy and his dog. It just seems to touch all the right areas and make us feel good. This one, made by Iams dog food, will really show you how precious having a dog can be! more >>
A website claiming to have been created by a 26-year-old pregnant woman, who intends to have an abortion on July 10, has issued a challenge to pro-life donors, stating that if they want to save her unborn baby's life, they must donate $1 million in three days through the website or else she will have the abortion.
On a website called ProLifeandAntiWoman.com, the alleged pregnant graduate student writes that she's seven-weeks pregnant and has "every intention of having an abortion," but is giving the "157 million Americans that identify as pro-life" the chance to prevent it.
The student explains that she goes to school in a state that "has very recently passed extremely restrictive abortion laws" requiring women to wait three days after consulting an abortionist before they can have the procedure, which is likely North Carolina since the state passed that law in April. more >>
