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.

It takes a special type of person to become a nurse. The job requires a combination of energy, empathy, clear mind, oftentimes a strong stomach, and a cheerful attitude. And while people typically think of nursing in a clinical setting, some nurses are driven to work with the people that feel forgotten by society.

Prior to baby formula, breastfeeding was the norm, but that doesn't mean it always worked.

As if the past handful of years weren't challenging enough, the U.S. is currently dealing with a baby formula crisis.

Due to a perfect storm of supply chain issues, product recalls, labor shortages and inflation, manufacturers are struggling to keep up with formula demand and retailers are rationing supplies. As a result, families that rely on formula are scrambling to ensure that their babies get the food they need.

Naturally, people are weighing in on the crisis, with some throwing out simplistic advice like, "Why don't you just do what people did before baby formula was invented and just breastfeed?"

That might seem logical, unless you understand how breastfeeding works and know a bit about infant mortality throughout human history.

The energy in a hospital can sometimes feel overwhelming, whether you’re experiencing it as a patient, visitor or employee. However, there are a few one-of-a-kind individuals like Elaine Ahn, an operating room registered nurse in Diamond Bar, California, who thrive under this type of constant pressure.

Your cat knows you better than you think.

Cats are often seen as being aloof or standoffish, even with their owners. Of course, that differs based on who that cat lives with and their lifetime of experience with humans. But when compared to man’s best friend, cats usually seem less interested in those around them, regardless of species.

However, a new study out of Japan has found that cats may be paying more attention to their fellow felines and human friends than most people thought. In fact, they could be listening to human conversations.

"What we discovered is astonishing," Saho Takagi, a research fellow specializing in animal science at Azabu University in Kanagawa Prefecture, told The Asahi Shimbun. "I want people to know the truth. Felines do not appear to listen to people's conversations, but as a matter of fact, they do."

How do we know they’re listening? Because the study shows that household cats often know the names of their human and feline friends.

Emily Calandrelli was stopped by TSA agents when she tried to bring her ice packs for pumped milk through airport security.

Traveling without your baby for the first time can be tough. And if you're breastfeeding, it can be even tougher, as you have to pump milk every few hours to keep your body producing enough, to avoid an enormous amount of discomfort and to prevent risk of infection.

But for Emily Calandrelli, taking a recent work trip away from her 10-week-old son was far more challenging than it needed to be.

Calandrelli is a mom of two, an aerospace engineer and the host of the Netflix kids' science show "Emily's Wonder Lab." She was recently taking her first work trip since welcoming her second child, which included a five-hour flight from Los Angeles to Washington, D.C. Calandrelli is breastfeeding her son and had planned to pump just before boarding the plane. She brought ice packs to keep the milk from spoiling during the flight, but when she tried to go through airport security, the TSA agents refused to let her take some of her supplies.
