BREAKING NEWS BRIEF
An Alabama man, who spoke at a press conference on Wednesday and said that the safe return of his 5-week-old son Caleb “C.J.” Whisnand Jr. “would mean everything” to him and the baby’s mother Angela Gardner, has now been charged with murder.
Not long after that press conference, the infant was found dead in a wooded area and Caleb Whisnand Sr., 32, was arrested and charged with manslaughter. As of Thursday, authorities said the charge was upgraded to capital murder.
The infant was reported missing after Whisnand went into a gas station and came back to find the baby missing.

SHOOT FOR THE STARS
For many of us, we’re serial goal-setters. We find it easy to set goals and love to dream big. When it comes to reaching those goals, though, that’s another matter.
The problem isn’t your goal-setting ability. Instead, our inability to reach those goals often comes down to our modus operandi, our system for reaching them.
