Mom’s Baby Bottle Hack Goes Viral

We?ve seen parenting hacks for diaper bags, holiday shopping, air travel, and Diaper Genies. Now we?ve got a hack for storing baby bottles.

On June 1, Texas mom Brooke McDaniel shared a trick she uses to keep her kids? bottles organized and save space in her kitchen.

?I?ve posted about this in my mommy group, but figured I should share with all new moms on my page, save your kitchen,? she posted on Facebook. ?It?s a $12 shower caddy. Best ?bottle holder? I could ever have. All my bottles in one place on my wall, space I wasn?t utilizing, instead of having a cabinet with bottles overflowing from it.?

McDaniel?s post received over 43,000 likes and been shared over 117,000 times. The comments section is filled with messages of gratitude from fellow parents, many of whom tagged their partners and other moms and dads. 

Following all the attention, McDaniel updated her post to express her surprise at the viral fame and clarify a few things.

?This post was only ever intended for my friends,? she wrote. ?I?m glad others are finding it helpful, but I never expected it to get any type of negative reaction ? so I?d like to address those now questioning my mothering methods.?

Regarding those who said she had too many bottles, she explained that she has two children on bottles and a very busy schedule. ?This amount ensures my children will have enough to get through 24 hours with ease,? she wrote. 

As for the complaints about the exposed bottle nipples, she noted, ?This is my home ? those nipple don?t come in contact with anything but the air we breathe … I?d be more worried about the dirt on the floor they scoot their face across than some germs, in the air they breathe in their mouths, possibly getting on a bottle they put in the same place.?

McDaniel concluded her post with a message to her fellow mothers.

?And to each one of y?all reading this,? she wrote. ?If no one told you today- YOU ARE A AWESOME MOM!?

Donald Trump’s Frequent Threats Against Leakers Paved The Way For Reality Winner’s Arrest

Transparency advocates have panned the FBI?s arrest of 25-year-old NSA contractor Reality Winner as ?a fundamental threat to the free press? and ?war on journalists and their sources.?

Though Winner?s arrest earlier this week for allegedly leaking classified information to the media may be concerning to some, it shouldn?t be surprising to anyone: President Donald Trump has long vowed to crack down on leaks.

As more stories about the Trump campaign?s ties to Russia emerged in February, the president tweeted, ?The real scandal here is that classified information is illegally given out by ?intelligence? like candy. Very un-American!?

A day later, he followed up with a more direct threat:

?The FBI is totally unable to stop the national security ?leakers? that have permeated our government for a long time,? Trump tweeted later that month, after his chief of staff Reince Priebus? conversations with the FBI about Russia made the news.

?They can?t even find the leakers within the FBI itself. Classified information is being given to media that could have a devastating effect on U.S. FIND NOW.?

It doesn?t take someone with a top security clearance to notice that Trump speaks most aggressively about U.S. intelligence officials after information about his campaign?s ties to Russia gets leaked to the press.

After The New York Times reported that Trump himself gave away classified information to Russian officials, he tweeted:

Trump has, however, also spoken out about other types of leaks. In May, he said it was ?deeply troubling? that U.S. intelligence officials allegedly shared information about the terrorist attack in Manchester, England, with the press.

?I am asking the Department of Justice and other relevant agencies to launch a complete review of this matter, and if appropriate, the culprit should be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law,? he said in a statement.

Leaks are, of course, nothing new for the White House. Former President Barack Obama?s administration also notably targeted journalists? sources, particularly by using the Espionage Act? which the FBI is now using against Winner ? to weed out whistleblowers

But, as HuffPost?s Michael Calderone puts it, Trump?s affinity for lawsuits may exacerbate the crackdown.

Trump wasn?t always so aggressively anti-leaks, though ? at least, not when they worked to his advantage. ?I love Wikileaks,? he said during the 2016 presidential campaign, after the organization hacked his opponent Hillary Clinton?s emails.

You Have To Listen To Britney Spears Singing ‘Toxic’ Without Auto-Tune

You haven?t heard ?Toxic? like this before. 

Fans and critics alike know Britney Spears has gotten some help from Auto-Tune over the years. So when unedited audio of the pop star?s 2004 hit was leaked on YouTube Monday, it wouldn?t be a stretch to assume her vocals might?ve sounded a little, um, rough.

Well, think again! Because she sounds great. 

Take that, haters.
