Obama Abandons Failed Cuba Policy After More Than 50 Years
"The United States intends to open an official embassy in Cuba in the coming months, the White House announced Wednesday, part of a broader normalizing of diplomatic relations after the countries exchanged prisoners. In a conference call with reporters, a senior administration official called the developments "the most significant changes to our Cuba policy in more than 50 years." "What we are doing is beginning the normalization of relations of the United States and Cuba," the official said. "President Obama has long believed that engagement is a better tool than isolation and nowhere is that clear than in Cuba, where we have seen a policy of isolation fail for the last 50 years." The White House said that Obama would order Secretary of State John Kerry to begin discussions with Cuban officials on re-establishing diplomatic relations and high-level discussions and visits between the countries are expected to follow. The opening of the embassy will happen "as soon as possible," an... more... - Steven Perez from Bookmarklet

When people post about the date containing numerical sequences or other oddities, I always want to point out that "14" is really "2014" which spoils it. In related news, I am a horrible pedant. #saturdayff

The excitement over these "sequences" is lost on me. - Stephan from iPhone
Stephan, I think it's related to an attraction to round numbers and seeing faces in clouds. We are natural-born pattern detectors. - Stephen Mack from iPhone
It's neither little endian nor big endian. #awkward - Micah from FFHound(roid)!
Kevin's take also discounts the value of other types of sequences: 05/10/15, for example. - Bren - pseudo-Buddhist from iPhone
And 01/01/17 is the next sequential prime day. - Louis Gray

Considering we don't really know when Jesus was born, it maybe really should be the year 2018 instead of 2014. I wish God would have had a digital camera with the date and time on it so that he could better document the birth of his son. - Joe

I haven't worn a watch on my wrist since I was 13 or so... I kept losing them because I'd take them off due to the strap irritating me. So eventually my mom got me a belt loop keychain to wear my watch on, kind of like a really cheap pocket watch, and that's what I did until smartphones. - Andrew C (✔)
I wear a regular watch. So do at least two of my grand-nieces--all of them analog. (I'm old, they're not.) - Walt Crawford
Pretty much why I'm not interested in smart watches. - rönin

When does the parenting thing from move from thoroughly exhausting into any other phase? When they leave for college?
Not sure. I have one in his second year of college and it hasn't gotten any less exhausting yet. It's a different kind of exhausting, but exhausting nonetheless. - WebGoddess
Death? - Soup in a TARDIS
Why do people have these things again then? - Steve C Team Marina
So they'll have someone to empty the dishwasher? (This is what my dad always claimed :P ) - Soup in a TARDIS
When you are pushing up daises - Valz 4 TEAMMARINA
All joking aside, I think every month gets slightly less exhausting (sleep regressions & teething excluded). YMMV - Jaclyn aka spamgirl from Android
9 months was pretty awesome until we stopped sleeping because teething. - Jenica from iPhone
14 is ok. But we only have one. I had to ask him to clean out the dishwasher. Again. - Joe
Dang Jenica you got to 9 months pre teething, We hit that at 5 months and sleep now down to 1.5 hours at a time. His first two teeth are in looks like two more locked and loaded for arrival. - Steve C Team Marina
After 3 years old I think. They can express themselves fairly well then and they want to help out (at least until the teen years). I'm still tired a lot: driving, homework, drama, etc. But it's a good tired. I like being a dad. Edit: As to "why"? *shrug* The best explanation I ever heard was, "It's in the blood." Biological/evolutionary imperative I guess. - MoTO: #TeamMarina
There's a period of time in the early teen years where all they do is sleep. That's a nice phase. - m9m, Crone of FriendFeed
I found I had a lot more free time when they learned to drive. - Ken Morley
^^This. Too bad I spent it worrying about all the other idiots in cars out there, just driving around until they crossed paths with my kid. Fortunately, this never actually happened and he's yet to get in a wreck. **knock on wood** - WebGoddess
^^ I was more worried about the other drivers. ;) - Ken Morley
We were doing so well until teething started a week ago. Now we're in the phase where she doesn't sleep for more than an hour at a time and that's pretty hellacious. - Brian Johns
There is a bubble between ~12 and the midpoint of high school (US version). They start to get more human after that as the various parts of their brains finish wiring up. observation: Helicopter parenting extends the bubble significantly.Facing and overcoming responsibilities on their own (with overt support and maybe a bit of help from behind the curtain) in high school will significantly ease things. - David Lounsbury
The 14 yo i mentioned starts driving lessons this spring. I certainly hope his attention span changes once he starts driving. - Joe

The horns hit like a punch taking you back to a better time where your biggest problem was where to store the action figures and what adventures they'd have the next time. I don't know about you, but John William's "Star Wars (Main Theme)" provokes a visceral reaction in me and sends a pleasant tingle down my spine. Oh, and here's the teaser:...

I'm on episode two of Grey's Anatomy. Apparently if I'd gone to medical school I could have a new boyfriend whenever I wanted one, and then some.
I think my mother would counter that view of medical school. Although of course she had a 3.5 year old when she started. :) - laura x

Diana is now the proud owner of a new dental practice that is beautiful and modern and fancy and pretty much only operated by her. But as the smartest person I know she can handle it. I’m hoping to help send people her direction. I know it’s far from many of us being in San Clemente but if you know someone in the area or are willing to make the drive for a good dental visit I’d appreciate it. - Steve C Team Marina from Bookmarklet
