Super dad …Torrence Burson of Memphis, Tennessee, wanted to make sure his daughter, Gabrielle, got the graduation ceremony she deserved. Gabrielle received her bachelor's degree from Xavier University in New Orleans, and since she couldn’t walk the stage to get her diploma, Torrance built her one. Not only did he craft a full-on stage in their driveway, but he even had a program for the day complete with presenters, a loudspeaker playing "The Graduation March," and neighbors out on the street. "I was just in awe," said Gabrielle. "I was amazed. I couldn't believe a lot of people showed up. People were driving by yelling congratulations." Gabrielle plans to join the Air National Guard before going back to school to become an Epidemiologist. She said she wants to work for the CDC. (Fox 13 Memphis)

As the country begins to slowly open up, the question of how to dine at restaurants safely is a huge issue. Sure, you can wear a mask walking in and out of your favorite eatery, but you can’t exactly wear one while eating … until now. Israeli inventors have created a face mask specifically for eating in public, and it looks a whole lot like a Pac-Man mouth!
They’ve taken a standard surgical mask and added a simple mechanism that allows the mask to open with each bite. You just have to be able to eat with one hand. You simply squeeze the lever with one hand and the Pac-Man mouth opens up to allow food in. It’s a great idea, but still might need some tweaking, especially if you order something messy … (Daily Motion)
