Thank you Hard Knocks for the intro to Ocho last year…

…and to John Connor this year… This show is the music world’s equivalent to an Apple commercial.

    Subject: Baby Changing Station in ALL Men’s Restaurant Bathrooms


    As a father of 3 children, I cannot tell you the frustration I have come across when I enter a men’s restroom in a restaurant, and find NO baby changing station. All men’s restrooms in restaurants NEED a changing station.

    That’s why I created a petition to The Illinois State House, The Illinois State Senate, Governor Pat Quinn, The United States House of Representatives, The United States Senate, and President Barack Obama, which says:

    “Every restaurant should be required to have a baby changing station in the men’s restroom.”

    Will you sign this petition? copy and paste link below:

    I am a San Jose mom, and last year I was very frustrated when looking for local summer camps for my son. I couldn’t find an easy way to discover camps; the information is so scattered. I also couldn’t tell if a camp was safe and fun with just one paragraph of info.

    I decided to do something about it, and I’ve been working on a website in my spare time that’s kinda like Yelp for camps. Anyone can add or review camps; I’m not soliciting advertising for placement. I hope it will become a valuable resource for South Bay parents. The URL is Please check it out, and I’d be grateful if you could mention it to your readers. I’m happy to answer any questions you might have.

    I am 14 year old Freshman from Cincinnati, OH. I have recently won a startup weekend in Cincinnati for the idea the mPlanner. The mPlanner is an IOS application that will help students plan their school activities such as homewrok and basketball practice and help parents see what the students is up to, when they can’t be with their kids. The application will be like any other planning app but is made more for the students. The difference between this App and any other planning app is that it will pull your assignments of websites such as blackboard so that assignments will magically appear in your application. If there is any way you could spread the word of the application it would be great. Thanks for your time.
