Though the nomination won't officially be decided until the Democratic National Convention convenes in July, recent wins in California, New Jersey, New Mexico, and South Dakota, gave the former secretary of state a certain majority of pledged delegates and assured her a wide popular vote victory in the Democratic primary.

The night was especially meaningful for one group: parents with daughters.

1. For many, the significance of watching a woman on stage kicking off her presidential campaign was monumental.


2. Some parents were thrilled their daughters got the message without their help.


3. Others hoped Clinton's victory meant their children might inhabit a better world in the future.


4. For some, bedtimes were ignored.


5. For others, not so much.


6. And while it was a tough night for non-Clinton supporters, many set aside their own disappointment to make sure their daughters witnessed history.


7. And many also granted some all-important bedtime flexibility to do so.


8. For some, Clinton's example is already having an effect.


9. And even better, others expressed the confidence that, for their younger daughters, a woman leading a presidential ticket will always be normal.


10. Some saw Clinton's victory as one step in a much larger — and longer — fight for equality.


11. Other parents recognized that their daughters weren't the only ones who should be paying attention.


12. The moment was especially bittersweet for one daughter, whose mom couldn't be there to witness it.


13. But she graciously shared the moment with others.


Though it took 240 years, watching the first woman campaign for the highest office on a major party ticket is a very big deal — not just for parents with daughters, but for all Americans.

When San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick started sitting during the national anthem—and then kneeling at the suggestion of a veteran—in 2016, he pushed the conversation about racial justice and police brutality into the U.S. mainstream. Some loved him for it, some hated him for it, but there's no question that he got everyone talking about it.

However, widespread support for his message didn't come until this year. As racial justice protests exploded across the country and spread throughout the world this spring, a distinct societal shift occurred. And as sports have started making a pandemic comeback, more and more athletes have loudly raised their voices for racial justice. Where we had seen a handful of individual athletes kneel during the anthem, we now see entire teams in various professional sports making powerful statements supporting the Black Lives Matter movement. The NFL itself has come out and publicly admitted they were wrong to try to get players to stop kneeling during the anthem.

Tonight is the first NFL game of the season, Kansas City Chiefs vs. Houston Texans. The teams has announced that they were going to do something special to make a unified statement on equality.

Twins born with separate fathers are rare in the human population. Although there isn't much known about heteropaternal superfecundation — as it's known in the scientific community — a study published in The Guardian, says about one in every 400 sets of fraternal twins has different fathers.

Simon and Graeme Berney-Edwards, a gay married couple, from London, England both wanted to be the biological father of their first child.

"We couldn't decide on who would be the biological father," Simon told The Daily Mail. "Graeme said it should be me, but I said that he had just as much right as I did."

Parents, teachers, and students have had to dig deep into their creativity and flexibility as back-to-school time hits, pandemic-style. From Zoom classes to hybrid models to plexiglass desk barriers, school simply does not—and cannot—look normal in 2020.

I've seen many parents fret over how and where their kids will do their online schooling. Do they need a desk? What about a quiet space? What if we don't have separate rooms for each kid? And those are just the worries about space.

With everyone's concern levels being sky high, it's no wonder the reactions to one dad's school-at-home setup were mixed. A Reddit user shared this video to the r/nextfuckinglevel subreddit, and while we don't know who the dad is, his classroom building skills truly are next level.
