Finally, Netflix has given us a more granular way to control what content we let out kids consume on their platform. This level of protection should be standard on all media platforms. Not only have then introduced PIN protection but will also display the rating levels before each program on their platform so we can better understand what our children are watching. As an added bonus adults can block individual programs from being streamed even if they are classified within an accepted rating class.

Oh shit…Valentine’s Day is like right now. You’ve known that for weeks but you still haven’t picked up anything yet, have you? Thought so. Sure, you could overnight something on Amazon but she’ll see right through that. Besides, she may not even want stuff. Chances are she just wants some downtime to herself. Here are some last-minute ideas that could potentially save your ass this year.
Flowers from Urbanstems ($35+)
Sure, flowers die and it’s kinda cliche, but you should still get them anyway. If you don’t have a garden where you can pick your own, Urbanstems is a new startup that offers a selection of fresh, seasonal bouquets hand delivered within hours via bicycle in Manhattan, Brooklyn, Queens, and DC areas.
Breakfast in Bed (or Out)
The point is: don’t let her cook. Find an easy recipe on Yummly and let her stay in bed while you cook (tip: make sure you have some Nutella on hand. Moms love Nutella). The kids will probably want to help, too. If you’re the type of guy who can’t even make toast, then take her out to brunch or, better yet, pick up her favorite breakfast dish from her favorite restaurant and serve it to her in bed.
Make a Card
Any guy can swing by the corner drugstore the day before and pick from a limited/terrible selection of Hallmark cards. But don’t. Make your own. It doesn’t have to look nice. The most appreciated cards we’ve ever given our wives were made in Microsoft Word and printed on computer paper because the sentiment and words came 100% from the heart.
Huge congrats to the Play 60 team who has brought this important program all over the country to enrich kids lives. You all should be super proud of all the great things you have done.
Ten years ago this week, at a playground in New Orleans, we launched NFL PLAY 60 – an important program to keep kids active and healthy.
PLAY 60 has helped children get their necessary daily physical activity. Our players recognize the value of staying healthy, and it’s important that our youth also understand the benefits of exercise, whether through organized sports or playing outside with friends.
Since Oct. 9, 2007, millions of kids and thousands of communities have become more physically active through PLAY 60. With the help of NFL teams, players and partner organizations, more than 2,000 PLAY 60 events are held annually, and more than 250 NFL Youth Fitness Zones have been constructed nationwide. As a result, more than 16 million kids are getting the recommended 60 minutes of physical activity each day through PLAY 60 programs, play spaces and events.
It is exciting to see the positive impact PLAY 60 has had over the last ten years, but we have more work to do. Together with our players, teams and partners, we will continue our efforts and inspire kids to lead healthy lives for decades to come. Roger Goodell

Many of us likely have a dream of taking the family on an epic road trip around the country, making memories that will last a lifetime. Problem is, you drive a small SUV or crossover since you couldn’t stomach getting a minivan or the thought of a gas guzzling full-size SUV – you know, vehicles with towing capacity. Allow us to revive your family road trip dreams thanks to the all new Airstream Basecamp – a modern trailer for the modern family. Designed to be towable with a variety of small and mid-sized SUVs and Crossovers, Basecamp was hand crafted in Jackson Center, Ohio and comes loaded with features like convertible rear space for eating, sleeping, lounging or storing gear, a large rear cargo hatch and flexible storage space with tie downs, a bathroom with toilet and shower (including shower head pass through), a kitchen with a cooktop, stainless steel sink and refrigerator, and a wireless Bose Bluetooth Soundlink Color speaker. It’s the lightest trailer in the entire Airstreem fleet with a base weight of just 2,585 pounds. National Parks, you’re on notice. We’re coming for you.
