  5. When fitness tracking industry leader Fitbit went public last summer it was valued at $4.1 billion. The company promises to “take your fitness to the next level” by tracking your heart rate, steps taken, and, with some devices, your GPS coordinates. In 2015, Oral Roberts University (ORU), a four-year liberal arts Christian college in Tulsa, Oklahoma, began to require freshmen and transfer students to wear Fitbits as part of an introductory physical fitness course. Students are expected to walk at least 10,000 steps a day and record 150 minutes of physical activity—as measured by heart rate—each week. This accounts for twenty percent of their course grade. Though the model being sold to students does not come equipped with GPS, some believe that ORU is infringing on students’ privacy. As it turns out, Fitbits can record calories burned during sex—which created a minor scandal in 2011 when users realized that their sexual activity could be discovered through a simple Google search. This puts ORU students in an awkward position, argues Keri Paul, since their university prohibits premarital sex.
  7. RICHMOND, TX -- A husband and wife were arrested Thursday after a disturbance captured on video at a Fort Bend County bar near Richmond. It happened at the Z Bar on Crab River Road. According to the Ft. Bend County Sheriff's Office, that husband and wife got into an argument with another female in another group. The couple was then reportedly asked to leave the bar. While off-duty deputies who were providing security at the bar were trying to get the couple to leave, they say the husband pushed and knocked one of the deputies into a table. That's when the deputies tried to put the husband in handcuffs. "My husband is on the ground with all these officers just hitting him, beating him. I'm screaming," said Meghan Moseley, who then can be seen on video striking one of the deputies. If you can't handle your liquor, don't drink.
  8. If you see a man walking down a Dallas street with a handgun on his hip next year, how will you know whether to call 911? Dallas city officials on Wednesday sought to clarify that issue ahead of Jan. 1, when the state’s new open carry law takes effect. Officials released a video and answers to common questions, as they urged the residents to remain calm and only call 911 if they believe the gun owner is committing a crime. The law could represent a culture shift that will take time for everyone — including city workers and police — to get used to, said city spokeswoman Sana Syed. At Dallas City Hall, some employees are panicked about the thought of armed people coming in and shooting up the place, she said. “People have died across the country, and residents and city employees want to know: When should we be worried?” Syed said. “There is no barometer for knowing which person is in their right mind to have a weapon like that.” The city attorney is reviewing the laws that dictate which areas of public buildings can be considered restricted to keep employees safe and comfortable, Syed said.
  9. Since the skate park near their home in Cambridge, Ontario, opened over the summer, Thomas' 6-year-old daughter, Peyton, had been mesmerized by the boys who zoomed past the playground and into the park. One day, Peyton said she wished she could skateboard too. "She'd only ever seen boys skateboard so she just assumed that it was a boy sport," said Thomas, 29, who grew up skateboarding as a teen. "She and I had a long talk — there's no such thing as boy things or girl things, there's just things, so if something interests you, you can do it." They dug Thomas' childhood skateboard out of the basement, bought a pink helmet and went to the skate park. But when they arrived, Peyton was intimidated by the older boys, some of whom were smoking and swearing, her mom said. Jeanean Thomas had her stern "You listen here" mom voice ready to go when her young daughter encountered a clump of intimidating teen boys at a local skate park. But then one of those young men stepped up with an unexpected act of kindness that prompted Thomas to speak out in a totally different way.
