Sounds like Justin Bieber’s a trailblazer in more ways than one!
It’s almost been two weeks since Justin's high-speed chase against the paparazzi and it seems as though the California Highway Patrol is ready to take charge!
Reportedly, the pap — who chased the Biebs down the 101 Freeway at speeds reaching 100 mph — could put Cali’s new anti-paparazzi law into action!
Supposedly, the photog could be charged with not only reckless driving, but also, the law
Um, why not??
Research is now showing that a third of U.S. teens are experiencing dating violence.
This sucks, but what makes it worse is that most high schools aren't prepared for it
Some say it takes a village to raise a child. That seems to be what California State Senator Mark Leno thinks.
Leno introduced a bill to the state legislature that would allow children to have more than two legally recognized parents. This law would apply to extra parents in nontraditional families, including some previously ignored spouses and sperm donors.
BTW, this isn't just some crazy Californian idea! Pennsylvania, Maine, and a few other states have already passed similar laws.
Considering nuclear families are making up less and less of our population- less than half in 2010- maybe it is time to adjust our legal definitions.
As far as we're concerned, there's no reason NOT to pass this law. It's hard enough to find one good parent; if you're lucky enough to have three, why should anyone take that away?

Women with child are still facing discrimination at alarming rates.
It is reported that the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission resolves 52,000 pregnancy cases.
The amount of money shelled because of that? $150.5 MILLION!
Pregnant women face firings, leave without pay, and being barred from some work. This is highlighted by a Texas federal judge ruling against a Houston mother who was fired for asking for a place to pump breast milk.
However, many employers state that the laws are murky and hard to follow. Witnesses said to a EEOC panel that the Pregnancy Discrimination Act, the 1990 Americans With Disabilities Act and the Family and Medical Leave Act all overlap and leave gray areas.
The EEOC plans on releasing a four year strategic plan to help clarify laws and fight discrimination.
We need our women in the workforce to have equal rights!
It's about time one of these schools takes responsibility.
We hear the same ol' story over and over again. A student gets bullied on a constant basis and the school does nothing about it.
Student Margaret Sobieralaski claims that her former classmate Daniel Herrick made up sexually explicit stories about her. She was then so stressed out by the verbal bullying from her classmates, she was unable to graduate with her class. According to her mother, "she was on suicide watch" and "she wanted to die."
Her mother added:
