White parents with black babysitter who was reported by stranger say police visit ‘scared’ their kids

A white couple whose black babysitter was followed by a white woman and questioned by police said they were in disbelief about the incident. David Parker and Dana Mango of suburban Atlanta told “Good Morning America” on Wednesday that an officer called them Sunday to verify that Corey Lewis, the family’s longtime friend and babysitter, had been given permission to care for their children that day. “We were at dinner, and I saw that Mr. Lewis had called,” Mango said. “I called back and a police officer answered the phone. The police officer was trying to explain that he was there with my kids and that they were OK, but he wanted to confirm that I had given permission to Mr. Lewis to be with them.” “It truly took me several minutes to believe that it was r...Read More

52, and Still Working the Streets

LIKE many single mothers, Barbara Terry, 52, scrounged for baby sitters and leaned on her own mother while raising her four children and working the night shift. But Ms. Terry is a prostitute who has worked nearly her entire adult life on the streets of Hunts Point, in the Bronx. “When they were old enough to understand, I would tell them the truth,” said Ms. Terry, whose daughter and three sons are now grown. “I’d say, ‘This is how I’m supporting you.’ For me, it’s a business, a regular job.” Yes, she said, she was arrested more than 100 times, sometimes landing at Rikers Island for several days or weeks — but that never deterred her from returning to this area of industrial warehouses and repair shops off the Bruckner Expressway. By day, heavy industrial traffic fills the streets. By nig...Read More

Bored with Netflix? As it goes global, the selection is about to explode

Joshua Fruhlinger,Digital Trends Sat, Sep 1 3:15 AM PDT Last month, Netflix missed its projections for the first time, adding only 674,000 subscribers domestically and 4.47 million internationally. That number was about 1 million less than the company had forecast. Investors panicked, stock prices of the company tumbled, and finance news headlines were made. But as far as I’m concerned, those numbers are a good thing for you and me. Let me explain why. Netflix added 4.47 million subscribers internationally compared to just 674,000 in the United States. Those numbers aren’t what investors had hoped for, but when we look at internal moves the company is making, we begin to understand what its future may hold — and then wax poetic about what that may mean for all of us. I’ll spoil it for you:...Read More
