Sharing a meal or dining at a restaurant is a common form of social engagement and a pleasurable experience for most.

But for those stricken by Parkinson’s and other types of neurological diseases, resulting essential tremors can greatly impair functional ability.

The simple act of using an everyday spoon or fork while eating can become nearly impossible to do and can create a traumatic dining experience.

A creatively designed smart spoon, created by Lift Labs as part of Lynx Design, is on the cutting edge of new technology which promises to revolutionize functional impairment.

When New York City’s Twin Towers were attacked on September 11, 2001, America was forever transformed.

Americans across the country tragically lost their unshakable belief that acts of foreign war and terror could not occur on American soil.

As approximately 3,000 Americans died, while visions of burning buildings and people jumping out of buildings proliferated on the TV news, the country came together for a brief moment in time in a unified voice screaming in disbelief, shock, mourning, outrage and resolve to move forward together.

America was instantly united as “one Nation, under God, indivisible.”

An American tradition celebrated the first Monday of September, Labor Day was established in 1887 as an official Federal holiday.

Borne from the strife during the aftermath of the Haymarket Massacre bombing at a labor demonstration in Chicago in 1886, Labor Day commemorates this unfortunate, horrific event.
