She got asked a question that no male coworker of hers got asked. So her response was one-of-a-kind.

After Democrats suffered losses in the 2014 midterm elections, a reporter asked Rep. Nancy Pelosi if she was going to step down from her position as House minority leader. It wasn't an answer about politics. It wasn't an answer that pitted Democrats against Republicans. It took an entirely different turn. I don't think anyone in that press conference was expecting what she had to say. I know I wasn't. But by the end, I was super-glad she said it.

She got asked a question that no male coworker of hers got asked. So her response was one-of-a-kind.

Home. Run.

Inside the walls of her kitchen at her childhood home in Guatemala, Evelyn Klohr, the founder of a Washington, D.C.-area bakery called Kakeshionista, was taught a lesson that remains central to her business operations today.

"Baking cakes gave me the confidence to believe in my own brand and now I put my heart into giving my customers something they'll enjoy eating," Klohr said.

While driven to launch her own baking business, pursuing a dream in the culinary arts was economically challenging for Klohr. In the United States, culinary schools can open doors to future careers, but the cost of entry can be upwards of $36,000 a year.

Through a friend, Klohr learned about La Cocina VA, a nonprofit dedicated to providing job training and entrepreneurship development services at a training facility in the Washington, D.C-area.

La Cocina VA's, which translates to "the kitchen" in Spanish, offers its Bilingual Culinary Training program to prepare low-and moderate-income individuals from diverse backgrounds to launch careers in the food industry.

That program gave Klohr the ability to fully immerse herself in the baking industry within a professional kitchen facility and receive training in an array of subjects including culinary skills, food safety, career development and English language classes.

Jary Patel and a contestant on "Who Wants to Be a Millionaire."

Prankster Jary Patel has earned over 4.4 followers on TikTok for his funny man-on-the-street videos. But it looks as though he may have met his match in a "Who Wants to Be a Millionaire" spoof where he asked a random guy on the Santa Monica Pier in California the wrong question.

Patel offered the guy $10,000 if he could answer a trick question correctly.

"So your mom got four kids. North, South and East. What's the last one's name?" Patel asked while holding a stack of cash in his hand.

When a pet is admitted to a shelter it can be a traumatizing experience. Many are afraid of their new surroundings and are far from comfortable showing off their unique personalities. The problem is that's when many of them have their photos taken to appear in online searches.

Chewy, the pet retailer who has dedicated themselves to supporting shelters and rescues throughout the country, recognized the important work of a couple in Tampa, FL who have been taking professional photos of shelter pets to help get them adopted.

"If it's a photo of a scared animal, most people, subconsciously or even consciously, are going to skip over it," pet photographer Adam Goldberg says. "They can't visualize that dog in their home."

Adam realized the importance of quality shelter photos while working as a social media specialist for the Humane Society of Broward County in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.

"The photos were taken top-down so you couldn't see the size of the pet, and the flash would create these red eyes," he recalls. "Sometimes [volunteers] would shoot the photos through the chain-link fences."

That's why Adam and his wife, Mary, have spent much of their free time over the past five years photographing over 1,200 shelter animals to show off their unique personalities to potential adoptive families. The Goldbergs' wonderful work was recently profiled by Chewy in the video above entitled, "A Day in the Life of a Shelter Pet Photographer."
