Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them

In Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, the hero of the story is a wizard named Newt Scamander. Newt is an accomplished, but introverted wizard who just happens to be the wizarding world's top magizoologist. After nearly completing a worldwide search to study and rescue magical creatures, he arrives in New York City in 1926 carrying several of these creatures in his magical suitcase. Eventually some of the creatures escape which results in chaos and destruction that only Newt and his fellow wizards can stop. Check out our full review here.

EpiPen Price Gouging by Mylan

A few months have passed since I last wrote about EpiPen Price Gouging by Mylan Pharmaceuticals, the manufacturer of EpiPens. Since then Mylan has reduced the cost of EpiPens to $300 from a high of $608 just this past Summer. The company has also added discount coupons on its website that reduces the cost to zero for many patients.

Girls Rock Science Weekend at Carnegie Science Center

So what are you doing this weekend? If you have daughters like I do, then you should be at the Girls Rock Science Weekend at Carnegie Science Center. It's this weekend September 24th and 25th. As a parent, I'm always looking for ways to get my kids more interested in technology. I've never had any problems getting my son excited about science and technology. My oldest daughter (9-years-old) takes a little more motivating at times. That's why events like this are so awesome for parents of girls.

Amazon Video Direct

Our family loves Amazon. So naturally I was excited when I read this morning about Amazon setting sights on YouTube with Amazon Video Direct service (AVD) available through their Prime program.

How to Cancel Comcast Xfinity Cable

Normally if anybody would ask me how to cancel cable TV services, I would say something like you get more bees with honey than vinegar. It's generally better to be nice in anything you do as a rule of thumb. This, however, is how to cancel Comcast Xfinity Cable TV service. That's an entirely different animal. Unfortunately, Comcast is known for its legendary horrible customer service. I'm not kidding when I say legendary. It's not fun, but it is necessary if you're planning on cutting the cord and canceling cable TV service.

Educational Value in Gaming for Kids

Most of the gaming we see our kids doing is limited to shooting things, building blocks or driving recklessly. That's why it usually gets a bad rep with most parents. There's actually an educational value in gaming for kids that happens when they're specifically playing with their friends. That's the part I'm talking about here. Left to their own devices in these environments, kids actually learn valuable life lessons like strategy, organization, conflict resolution, leadership and more.

American Academy of Pediatrics Guidelines on Kids and Screen Time

In today's updated recommendations from the American Academy of Pediatrics guidelines on kids and screen time, they admit that some of their advice from the 2011 guidelines may have not been keeping up with the times. This might all be easy to accomplish living in an Amish community. Or in the cold, harsh, vacuum of space. But parents have known for years that all screen time is not equal. Not even close. Now they're at least admitting that those guidelines were prepared prior to the launch of the first generation iPad. So yeah, they kind of needed updating.

Transformers and Air Shows

What do Transformers and Air Shows have to with each other? Well actually a lot when you're with a 6-year-old Transformer fan who just spotted an Apache Helicopter that he believes is the evil Decepticon Blackout from the all the Transformer Movies. Kids are so much fun!
