You have to see this touching moment between a future basketball star and his dad.

Stephen Curry is arguably the best basketball player in the world today, but can he also predict the future?

If you're a sports fan, you probably know who Stephen Curry is by now. 

\n\n

He plays for the NBA's Golden State Warriors and was voted the league's Most Valuable Player for the 2014-2015 season.

Wait, the name still doesn't ring a bell? 

\n\n

He's also the dad to an adorable daughter named Riley, who stole the show during his recent NBA press conferences.

He loves his kid and he wants her to experience this unique journey with him. That's a great way to embrace fatherhood.

Speaking of fatherhood, Stephen's dad, Dell Curry, was a really good NBA player in his own right. And just like most young kids, Stephen idolized his dad and wanted to be a basketball player just like him.

Thanks to a recently resurfaced Burger King commercial from the 1990s, we can see the bond between Stephen Curry and his father firsthand.

"You really gotta want it," Dell said. 

\n\n

Apparently Stephen really wanted it, because now the young man is currently enjoying the life of NBA royalty. With his MVP award and a championship under his belt, he's likely exceeding even his dad's expectations.

As the saying goes, "The apple doesn't fall far from the tree." Or better yet, the basketball doesn't fall far from the hoop. 

\n\n

Other than being great professional basketball players, these two men are amazing dads as well. Dell and his wife raised Stephen to be a great man on and off the court, and Stephen really enjoys being a dad to his two daughters.

\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n

But fans of happy families want more. Next up, let's see a sequel to the commercial featuring Stephen and Riley. 

\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n

Get on that, Burger King.

In the meantime, you gotta watch this quick video to see how the whole conversation between Dell and Stephen went down.

Between the new normal that is working from home and e-learning for students of all ages, having functional electronic devices is extremely important. But that doesn't mean needing to run out and buy the latest and greatest model. In fact, this cycle of constantly upgrading our devices to keep up with the newest technology is an incredibly dangerous habit.

The amount of e-waste we produce each year is growing at an increasing rate, and the improper treatment and disposal of this waste is harmful to both human health and the planet.

So what's the solution? While no one expects you to stop purchasing new phones, laptops, and other devices, what you can do is consider where you're purchasing them from and how often in order to help improve the planet for future generations.

Sir David Attenborough has one of the most recognized and beloved voices in the world. The British broadcaster and nature historian has spent most of his 94 years on Earth educating humanity about the wonders of the natural world, inspiring multiple generations to care about the planet we all call home.

And now, Attenborough has made a new name for himself. Not only has he joined the cool kids on Instagram, he's broken the record for reaching a million followers in the shortest period. It only took four hours and 44 minutes, which is less time than it took Jennifer Aniston, who held the title before him at 5 hours and 16 minutes.

A day later, Attenborough is sitting at a whopping 3.4 million followers. And he only has two Instagram posts so far, both of them videos. But just watch his first one and you'll see why he's attracted so many fans.

Schools often have to walk a fine line when it comes to parental complaints. Diverse backgrounds, beliefs, and preferences for what kids see and hear will always mean that schools can't please everyone all the time, so educators have to discern what's best for the whole, broad spectrum of kids in their care.

Sometimes, what's best is hard to discern. Sometimes it's absolutely not.

Such was the case this week when a parent at a St. Louis elementary school complained in a Facebook group about a book that was read to her 7-year-old. The parent wrote:

"Anyone else check out the read a loud book on Canvas for 2nd grade today? Ron's Big Mission was the book that was read out loud to my 7 year old. I caught this after she watched it bc I was working with my 3rd grader. I have called my daughters school. Parents, we have to preview what we are letting the kids see on there."

One night in 2018, Sheila and Steve Albers took their two youngest sons out to dinner. Their 17-year-old son, John, was in a crabby mood—not an uncommon occurrence for the teen who struggled with mental health issues—so he stayed home.

A half hour later, Sheila's started getting text messages that John wasn't safe. He had posted messages with suicidal ideations on social media and his friends had called the police to check on him. The Albers immediately raced home.

When they got there, they were met with a surreal scene. Their minivan was in the neighbor's yard across the street. John had been shot in the driver's seat six times by a police officer who had arrived to check on him. The officer had fired two shots as the teen slowly backed the van out of the garage, then 11 more after the van spun around backward. But all the officers told the Albers was that John had "passed" and had been shot. They wouldn't find out until the next day who had shot and killed him.
