From Upworthy: In a widely-read study, business school students were given a case assignment on Heidi, a real-life successful entrepreneur in Silicon Valley. But there was a catch. Half of the class randomly received their case with one teensy tiny change made: The name "Heidi" was changed to "Howard."

Travelers giggle at the chance to talk live with Santa through a screen, and parents and kids alike tell him what they want for Christmas.

Thousands of people living in the Southwest are buzzing after a bright light thought to be a meteor which was seen from Las Vegas, Nevada to Tucson, Arizona. The object was spotted around 7 o'clock last night and widely reported on social media sites such as Twitter.
A Phoenix area resident posted this video on YouTube that shows a bright object falling toward the ground over the Phoenix-Mesa Gateway Airport.
Observers also reported a sonic boom as the meteor passed, and at least one said they heard an explosion about 90 seconds after the meteor passed. State and local officials are still trying to determine if the meteor actually did strike the ground somewhere in Arizona.
