Megan Woods: I did genetic testing for breast cancer. Now I’m sharing my journey to raise awareness
As a young woman who has grandmothers on both sides of her family who’ve battled breast cancer, I was blown away that there was a process that could tell whether you were at a higher risk for breast cancer.

Christy McDonald: The next big thing in AI? ChatGPT’s incredible abilities and potential risks

Disorder in the (online) court: Jason Colthorp shares story of traffic ticket hearing on Zoom
Originally, I was scheduled for court via Zoom, but this time it said to report to the court. Even when someone shows up with phone records to allegedly prove they weren’t texting like the ticket says—they lose the hearing. Almost immediately, the magistrate and officer agree to reduce it to a ticket for double parking, no points and fine of $180 dollars. Colthorp, the officer did not appear, your ticket is dismissed.”(Eyes as big as saucers) “Thank you, ma’am. Also, my next great idea is going to be turning traffic court Zooms into a TV show somehow.

Brandon Roux recalls newsroom scene during September 11 attack

At 9 a.m., our main anchor evening team was on the air broadcasting updated information about the 9/11 terrorist attack. I had no personal or familial connection to this attack but it still haunts me to this day.
Evrod Cassimy reflects on ‘panic’ of September 11 attacks
I had just started my senior year of high school. I remember walking in the halls of my high school and as we switched classes, someone mentioned that a plane had crashed into the World Trade Center. To be honest, most of the students in my class had no idea what the building even was. That’s when we saw the second plane hit the second tower. Today, I still feel that same scared feeling in my heart reminiscing about this terrifying time in our country’s history.
