SOUTH JORDAN, Utah (ABC 4 News) - A South Jordan mother joined a nationwide protest Wednesday to support breastfeeding in public. The demonstration comes after a nursing mother said she was harassed at a Target store in Texas.
There are over 500,000 applications for the iPhone and iPad, 300,000+ on Android and thousands more on other platforms. The average user has 65 apps installed on their phone (source: Flurry). Many of us have more.
Future shirts and socks could clean themselves using just sunlight, chemists report — all you’ll have to do is drape them over the balcony and voila, clean laundry. A coating of titanium dioxide makes this possible.

In today's competitive global economy, technological innovation is essential to long-term U.S. economic security, and the energy sector should be a particular priority. Failure to extend key U.S. clean energy initiatives would be contrary to U.S. interests.
Expansion in the clean energy industry will fuel economic progress and strengthen our national security. American scientific leadership has spurred innovative new energy generation and storage technologies -- from solar and wind power to fuel cells and electric vehicles. These sources can be domestically produced and deployed over time. And these are the energy options that the world's fastest-growing economies are using to support development without harming the environment.
Research by The Pew Charitable Trusts shows that the clean energy sector is growing rapidly -- by more than 600 percent in the past seven years. According to Bloomberg New Energy Finance, investments in this sector eclipsed those for conventional energy last year for the first time. Additional Pew research shows that investment in the sector could total some $2.3 trillion this decade.
Last week, Internet innovator and artist Jonathan Harris launched Cowbird, a space on the web for housing deeper and more personal storytelling. It’s a project that aspires to no less than building a comprehensive public library of human experience.
Cowbird takes the deliberate, cow-like pacing of traditional storytelling media such as the novel, and gooses it with the quick-hit, bird-like qualities of Facebook and Twitter. Users within a small community of storytellers handpicked by Harris post images and accompanying text, and continue doing so until a larger narrative begins to reveal itself.
The stories on the site are richly interconnected, complete with maps, timelines, dedications, and many other components. The basic structure of Cowbird consists of three levels: stories, diaries, and sagas. The basic story is a photo with text (although these can also include audio and other features). As more stories are added, they begin to comprise a person’s diary. Users can also flag some stories and diaries as being part of a larger saga--events like the above-mentioned Arab Spring--making them appear in two places....
