World War Doh Brings the Absurdity of Battle to Your Phone

World War Doh may very well be the most adorable battle game since Pokemon rolled out. (Tough to beat the cuteness of a Psyduck!) I don't play a ton of games on my phone, with the exception of a few word games and one of my favorites, Clash Royale. But somewhat similar in gameplay to that card-based battle game, World War Doh takes the ridiculousness of battle to the next level. Created by Jam City, this new mobile game is completely free to download and play, although there are plenty of chances for in-game purchases to boost your levels faster. Besides the fact that the main characters have no noses (that's always funny ...

Street Fight: The Muppets vs. Sesame Street

Interviewing Kermit and Miss Piggy was the highlight of my journalism career. As a hardcore Muppets fan, I have loved watching Fozzie Bear, Gonzo, Animal, Beaker and the Swedish Chef get things started. Now, I also loved Sesame Street as a kid. The Count was always a favorite (though I fully admit, I had a hand puppet of him as a kid that scared me to death) and there is no greater superhero than Super Grover. Recently, however, I heard of a gang war brewing. A throw-down to end all throw-downs. The Muppets had entered Sesame Street and it was time to take out the trash. Kaci Marie posted what seemed a harmless little ...

Suffern Robotics Encourages Girls to Embrace STEM

  My teenage son Jason has been on the Suffern Robotics Team for three years now. Last year, the team made it all the way to the FTC World Championships in Detroit, taking home a nomination for the Connect award. This year, Jason's the team captain, hoping to repeat last year's success.  The Suffern Robotics Team (Team #7486 for those of you keeping score at home), participates in the First Tech Challenge, which is a remarkable and wonderful program. Not only does it encourage group learning and problem solving but "gracious professionalism" is first and foremost with everything. At competitions, teams actually lend a hand to other teams in need. It's a friendly rivalry ...

Disney’s Frozen 2 Gift Pack Giveaway!

Disney's Frozen holds a real special place in my heart. No, it actually has nothing to do with my kids either. To me, Frozen was my first real step into the world of Disney PR as a blogger. Yep, some six years ago, I was a fairly young blogger who happened to worm his way into a special invitation to go interview the cast and musicians behind Disney's upcoming animated film Frozen. It was roughly one month before "Let it Go" was unleashed on the big screen for the world, and there I was sitting in the Waldorf Astoria in New York City interviewing the one and only Kristen Bell. The rest, ...

How to Manage Homeschooling as a Working Parent

The following is a sponsored guest post Homeschooling can be a rewarding experience for both parents and children. Historically, homeschooling meant that at least one parent must stay home to oversee the homeschool education. Home education requires parents to dedicate a significant amount of their time to plan the curriculum, provide instruction, and evaluate progress. However, with all the resources available to homeschoolers today, working parents can successfully home educate their children. Parents can homeschool their children, work, and still have time to spend with family and friends. If you are considering homeschooling your child as a working parent, the following tips can help you balance your student’s homeschool education with your ...
