Iphone app that chooses baby's name for you



Parents unsure what to name their soon-to-be-born baby can now spare themselves the hand-wringing, and let the fetus decide itself. Developer Nathan Parks has created a 99-cent iPhone app called "Kick to Pick" that allows an expectant mom to place her iPhone (or iPod Touch or iPad) on her belly, and scroll through a list of possible names until the baby "picks" one by kicking. Although the app generates a random list of names, the parent can limit the options or customize the list. Is this a genius idea, or a cringeworthy cop-out?

White Philly Cop Told to Lose Cornrows

Police in Philadelphia say a white officer who came to work with cornrows was ordered by a black superior to get a haircut because the braids violated department standards.
The Philadelphia Daily News reported Monday that Officer Thomas Strain was put on desk duty this month because of the braids, even though the paper reported dozens of black officers wear cornrows.
Police spokesman Lt. Frank Vanore says Strain's boss told the officer to cut his hair to look more "professional."
Vanore says officers' hats must fit "in a military manner" over their hair, and that Strain's hat did not. Strain got a haircut; he declined comment to the paper.
Vanore recalled only one black officer with braids in the past several years. He says that officer also was told to get a haircut.
