I Used Jennifer Lawrence's Stolen Images to Teach My Kids About Internet Security

A few days ago, nude pictures of celebrities such as Jennifer Lawrence, Ariana Grande, Victoria Justice, Kim Kardashian, Rihanna, Kate Upton, Lea Michele, Kirsten Dunst, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, and others showed up online.

Privacy in a Celebrities World

You know what really pisses me off? "If you don't want naked pictures leaked, you shouldn't take them." If you've paid any attention to the news lately, then you know about the nude photos of some of today's biggest celebrities that was stolen from the iCloud app....more

#IfMyPhoneGotHacked and Jennifer Lawrence: Let's Admit We Care about Privacy

I love the combination of seemingly no-fuss hair and an ultra glamorous dress! The best part of this trend- is that we normal folk can wear it in our every day lives! ...more

Jennifer Lawrence and Vanity Fair Sexism

Vanity Fair Magazine has proclaimed Jennifer Lawrence the most desirable woman in the world.  I hope Jennifer is annoyed about it.  She is definitely the hot actress of the moment, but she is also smart, brainy, self-confident, outspoken and funny.  On the Vanity Fair cover she holds a little white daisy.  It doesn't fit.  The person does not fit the title and the title does not match the image. ...more
