UPDATE: Breastfeeding Advocate Files 'Wrongful Termination' 2:27

UPDATE - 6/26/12: Crystal Scott, breastfeeding advocate and Mom2Mom co-founder, has filed a lawsuit against Schryver Medical for wrongful termination. RightThisMinute has acquired a copy of the lawsuit, click here to see it.

Scott was fired from her job as an X-ray technician on June 1, 2012, after a photo released from her organization depicting military moms breastfeeding caused national backlash. Scott's complaint also accuses Schryver of discrimination, equality pay violations, defamation and retaliation. “The evidence and the timing suggest Schryver retaliated against Crystal for her work on behalf of women,” said Scott’s attorney, Pat Buchanan. “Crystal is an advocate for gender equality and breastfeeding rights, and simply put – she was fired for it.” Schryver Medical, however, said the termination was actually for other reasons in a statement they released June 15.

6/13/12: Scott told RightThisMinute she lost her job after the photos went public and the two soldiers were reportedly reprimanded by the military. Mom2Mom said the photos were meant to promote World Breastfeeding Week in August.

Sesame Street Re-Created Famous Scene from 'When Harry Met Sally'

This is a pretty smart move by Sesame Street. They spoofed the most memorable scene from "When Harry Met Sally," and used the bit to teach the viewer about patience. Meanwhile, the part we really want to see — when Sally is moaning loudly inside of Katz's Deli, doesn't happen until the very end of the video. Patience. That's what we are learning about today. Nicely done, Sesame Street. View Now


Fisherman Gets Robbed by Killer Whale Impersonator

While out fishing on the Hawaii coast, one fisherman caught himself a beautiful mahimahi fish. But he had also seen glimpses of what looked like a killer whale nearby, so he started reeling his fish in with caution.

And it looks like this dolphin was a pretty good impersonator. View Now
