Anyone with an online dating account will know that choosing the perfect profile picture for your page is a tricky business. From candid photos to Snapchat selfies, it can be difficult to know what will help you bag the likes in a sea of profiles. But help is at hand, as Hinge has released data on the most successful photo practices. The findings suggest that women should smile with their teeth, men should avoid looking away from the camera, and no one should share a bathroom selfie.

Bomb squad organizes beeping Easter egg hunt for blind children


ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) –
The bomb squad is trained to work in stressful, dangerous situations. However, dozens of local explosives specialists are using their training this month to help children in the community.

Local members of the Air Force, the Army and the Albuquerque Police Department's bomb squads are using their knowledge of electronics to put on a beeping Easter egg hunt for children who are blind or visually impaired.

Families are invited to attend the event on Saturday, April 15 at USS Bullhead Memorial Park from 10 a.m. until 11:30 a.m.
About 25 people gathered at the Kirtland Air Force Base on Friday to build circuits, allowing each egg to make a beeping noise so that children can find them by following the sound.

"We tried to build an assembly line, and it's going pretty well," said Air Force Tech Sgt. John Johnson. "We're building some pretty in-depth circuits."

He said he was inspired to organize the effort after learning about a bomb squad hosting a similar event in South Carolina.
"I was wondering if our community had a need for that," Johnson said.

After hearing a lot of positive feedback and excitement over the idea for the Easter egg hunt, he got a team together to make it happen.
It's all for kids like 9-year-old Faith Switzer.

"I think it's important that blind people get an opportunity to do the same thing that sighted people do," Faith said.

Her family has made sure she has gotten that opportunity whenever possible. Faith has tried everything from bowling to rock climbing and even zip-lining.

"I was trying to do hockey once, but I fell over," Faith said as she laughed. "I got right back up, and I actually shot the hockey thing into the hole."

Adam Buckner plans to go to the Easter egg hunt with his son, Tyler, who will turn 5 years old next month.

Tyler has Cri du chat syndrome, a rare genetic disorder.

His father said he is vision is impaired, and doctors originally said that Tyler would never walk or talk.

"Now, he's taken 25 steps on his own," Buckner said. "He has about 30 words, and one of his favorites is, 'Batman,' and, 'Spiderman.' So, I can't complain."

He's grateful that the community's thinking about kids with special needs.

"We need more of it. You know, these kids just want to be normal and…" Buckner said, pausing as he began to tear up. "It's just really sweet."

Organizers said they're planning for about 200 people to enjoy the festivities, and they hope the egg hunt will become an annual event.

Boy With Autism Sells Drawings to Buy Toys For Sick Brother


After living with bipolar disorder and autism all of his life, 10-year-old Haden Edwards has finally discovered one thing that can calm him down: taking care of his little brother Max.

Max, who is a 7-year-old struggling with a genetic disorder called neurofibromatosis, usually suffers from many symptoms, such as gastrointestinal cramps, motor tics, and a weakened immune system. He underwent an unsuccessful brain surgery in August 2016 and the time is quickly approaching where his parents must decide to try again or start chemotherapy.

When Haden started escorting Max to his doctor's appointments, he started to realize how tough his baby brother really was.
So he asked his mother, Cynthia Davis, if he could have money to buy some toys for Max. Though she said that he could mow the lawn or do the dishes for allowance money, Haden decided he would use his skills as an artist instead.

Haden set up a table on the family's front lawn with a sign saying "Selling Drawings For Mad Max: $1".

When his mother put out a plea on Facebook for friends to take Haden up on his offer, 30 people arrived in under 30 minutes to request a picture from the young artist.

Haden has since raised over $1,000 through his special drawings. All of the money he earns, he puts towards Max; whether it's taking him out for ice cream or buying him LEGOs.

His compassion has also infected the rest of his life; he now volunteers at Meals on Wheels, buys meals for local police officers, holds fundraisers for organizations in need, and grows out his hair so he can donate it to Locks of Love.

"Being autistic, it's very hard to keep his self-esteem high," said Cynthia. "That is no longer an issue. Every time he gets a new [picture] request, he just lights right up."

You can assist the family with their financial needs by donating to their GoFundMe page.
