She's Reading, Watching, Listening to…

By Megan M. Seckman

Erin Carson is young, in-tune and plugged in. After earning a master’s degree in journalism from Syracuse University, she settled in East Louisville to write for the CBS Interactive site TechRepublic, where she covers all things technology. “Though I used to write mostly about music, these days I’m a technology reporter — multimedia editor, if we’re going to be fancy about it,” she says. “Writing has always been my favorite pursuit. At some point I realized it was the only thing I could stomach doing every single day. So, here I am. Writing about tech is fun and a little weird. My main beat is virtual reality, so if you need to know anything about head-mounted displays and immersive environments, I’m your gal.”

So what wires this 26-year-old techie? Click to see what she’s reading, watching, and listening to...

Seven Ways to Reduce Stress Today

By Bob Mueller

Years ago I had the opportunity to hear Mother Teresa speak at Bellarmine College in Louisville. Someone in the audience asked Mother Teresa how she could keep such a busy schedule. He said, “You crisscross the country and the world. How do you do it? Aren’t you exhausted? Your schedule would drive me crazy!”

In a sincere voice that calmed the entire audience, Mother Teresa responded quietly...

How Art Works in Her Home

By Anna Patterson

Ingrid Hernandez's home is filled with artwork. She takes advantage of all her wall space.
When I first stepped into Ingrid Hernandez’s home, I thought I had mistakenly walked into an art gallery. Paintings, pastels, and prints covered nearly every inch of the home’s purple and gold walls. Each piece stood out individually yet they all flowed together to create a vibrant ambiance. As I stood in the entrance and took it all in, I could hardly wait to see the rest of her home.

I Decided To Help

By Megan S. Willman

These girls all decided to help at the Center for Women and Families.

I’ve been fortunate in my life, and most of the time I remember to be grateful for that. I’ve even dedicated a good bit of time volunteering to help others, but in the spring of this year, I felt a true compulsion to give back to our community more directly. But where? I’ve always considered myself an educator, although I left the classroom years ago. I’m a feminist, and more than that, a humanist, and I had heard great things about The Center for Women and Families, which provides services for victims of domestic abuse or sexual assault.

Let me tell you a little about what I found…
