First US President to supports equality for all couples!

"In the wake of recent same-sex marriage news (namely, North Carolina passing a ban against gay unions in its state constitution Tuesday), President Barack Obama has gone on the record that he personally supports equality for all couples.
He tells Robin Roberts of ABC’s Good Morning America:
“I have to tell you that over the course of several years as I have talked to friends and family and neighbors, when I think about members of my own staff who are in incredibly committed, monogamous relationships, same-sex relationships, who are raising kids together; when I think about those soldiers or airmen or marines or sailors who are out there fighting on my behalf and yet feel constrained, even now that Don’t Ask Don’t Tell is gone, because they are not able to commit themselves in a marriage — at a certain point, I’ve just concluded that for me personally, it is important for me to go ahead and affirm that I think same-sex couples should be able to get married.”?

Obama Says He's Not Bluffing on Iran

In Interview, Obama Says He's Not Bluffing on Iran - ABC News:

"President Barack Obama warned that he is not bluffing about attacking Iran if it builds a nuclear weapon, but in an interview published Friday, Obama also cautioned U.S. ally Israel that a premature attack on Iran would do more harm than good."

"I think that the Israeli government recognizes that, as president of the United States, I don't bluff," he said in the interview. "I also don't, as a matter of sound policy, go around advertising exactly what our intentions are. But (both) governments recognize that when the United States says it is unacceptable for Iran to have a nuclear weapon, we mean what we say."

"Staring at screens for three hours (or more) a day or having our necks flexed down for extended periods of time while texting surely can't be good for us. Just as a reminder, the "Are Mobile Devices Destroying Your Body?" infographic points out these and other health implications when using mobile devices and things we can do to minimize them.
Some stats may seem alarmist or still unproven (e.g., regarding cellphone radiation and cancer studies—cellphones are neither officially safe nor unsafe to use)."
