We don’t want to let go of her.

In the early post-election days, president-elect Donald Trump has already began to disappoint his base by stocking the swamp instead of draining it like he promised. As the majority of Americans who didn’t vote for Trump watch in disgust, many look for signs of hope in the face of darkness. One way Hillary Clinton supporters have healed after the election is through her resilience. This has inspired supporters who see her in public to share photos of Clinton persevering after the difficult loss.

The first photo appeared on Instagram on November 10th when Margot Gerster spotted Clinton “in the wild” on a walk through the forest in Chappaqua, New York. The photo showed a resilient Clinton carrying on in the face of a terrible defeat and helped uplift many Democrats who were reeling from the loss themselves. The photo quickly went viral, along with Hillary-spottings at a bookstore and supermarket.

The uplifting nature of the Hillary sightings prompted Adam Parkhomenko, Clinton’s former Director of Grassroots Engagement, to create a Twitter account compiling shots Hillary in the wild. “When I saw her she gave me a big hug and the first thing she said to me was, ‘I’m sorry,’ ” Parkhomenko told Vanity Fair. “I thought that she is the last person on Earth who should be consoling me a few days after the race was not called for her. But that’s who she has always been.” The Twitter account as since given solace to many Americans that can’t let go of a woman who has been a true source of inspiration.

Anyone who has ever worked in retail knows that the worst thing about the job, right after the pay, are the unreasonable cheapskates who "want to talk to your manager" to get some money off an item.

They think that throwing a tantrum will save them a few bucks and don't care if they completely embarrass themselves in the process. Sometimes that involves belittling the poor employee who's just trying to get through their day with an ounce of dignity.

Twitter is rallying around a gal named Tori who works at a Target in Massachusetts after she was tweet-shamed by irate chapekate, journalist, and Twitter troll, David Leavitt.

Childbirth is the number one reason American women visit the hospital, and it ain't cheap. In fact, it's getting more and more expensive. A new study published in Health Affairs found that the cost of having a baby with employer-sponsored health insurance increased by almost 50% in the past seven years.

The study evaluated "trends in cost-sharing for maternity care for women with employer-based health insurance plans, before and after the Affordable Care Act," which was signed into law in 2010. The study looked at over 657,061 women enrolled in large employer-sponsored health insurance plans who delivered babies between 2008 and 2015, as these plans tend to cover more than plans purchased by small businesses or individuals.

A meteorite crashed into Earth nearly 800,000 years ago. The meteor was 1.2 miles wide, and the impact was so big, it covered 10% of the planet with debris. However, scientists haven't been able to find the impact site for over a century. That is, until now. A study published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences journal believes the crash site has been located.

Tektites, which are essentially rocks that have been liquefied from the heat of the impact and then cooled to form glass, help scientists spot the original impact site of a meteor. Upon impact, melted material is thrown into the atmosphere, then falls back to the ground. Even if the original crater has disappeared due to erosion or is hidden by a shift in tectonic plates, tektites give the spot away. Tektites between 750,000 to 35.5 million years old have been found in every continent except Antarctica.
