Every single person on the planet begins his or her life the same way: as babies. As adults, we can look at babies and describe them as sweet, innocent or cute.

Our dads tend to be people close to our hearts for being people who love, care for and support us through the thick and thin.

When we discuss the behaviors of some of nature’s creatures, we often forget about the less exotic flavors of what we might find.

It’s 2002, and it’s Halloween in the Taluja household. As a 4-year-old girl, naturally, I’m dressed up as a fairy. My 2-year-old sister, my mom and I are in the kitchen laughing about glitter, fairies and candy. Suddenly, the kitchen lights click off, I hear stomping and this glow-in-the-dark skul...
