This week's Y@ Speak looks back at a week of end time plagues: swarming termites, flash floods, spiders, gentrifiers, football players, Supriya Jindal shooting a gun, moms. Moms saved the day and week. Good work, moms.

And a friendly reminder that nominations are open for the 2014 Y@ Speak Awards. Submit your nominations for your favorites by midnight, May 18. Then we'll open up the voting for finalists leading up to the awards on June 2 at Publiq House. Go nuts.
