    Stress and upheaval are harmful at any time, but the pandemic has forced many families onto a roller coaster ride that seems unending. Families and caregivers are concerned about what this period of great instability means for their children, so we turned to psychologist Jennifer Vargas Pemberton, who has worked with children and teenagers for decades, for some answers. Pemberton is an associate professor of educational psychology and counseling in the Marriage and Family Therapy Program at Cal State Northridge and the faculty liaison for Strength United, the CSUN charter center that provides trauma services to the community and on campus. In addition, she has a private practice and is director of training and manager of the crisis program at the Child & Family Guidance Center’s Balboa Boulevard offices in Northridge. Overall, Pemberton said she believes that families, schools and our communities should embrace a “trauma-informed” approach, which means having an understanding of traumatic experiences can impact our children’s overall wellbeing. This interview has been edited and condensed for clarity. You’ve been working with suicidal children and adolescents and specializing...
    Houseplants are used to brighten up a room, purify the air or improve your mood, but some of these aesthetically pleasing plants are hiding a dark secret - they are toxic to children and pets. Horticulture expert Paul Alder warns that several plants commonly found in homes, such as daffodils, Aloe Vera and English ivy, can cause swelling of the throat, vomiting and even death when ingested. Many popular houseplants contain a chemical that is the common cause for kidney stones in humans and is near impossible for children and pet to break down, causing severe damage.  One of the most dangerous houseplant for both children and pets is the elegant calla lilies, as these flowers release microscopic needle-like crystals that can lead to death if not treated immediately. Alder, who is a houseplant enthusiast, advises homeowners to keep all plants out of reach of children or pets, because even those that are non-toxic can cause an upset stomach or vomiting. Philodendron: A great houseplant because it thrives indoors, but causes vomiting and diarrhea in children who ingest its leaves...

    (CNN)Vladimir Putin can call up all the troops he wants, but Russia has no way of getting those new troops the training and weapons they need to fight in Ukraine any time soon.With his invasion of Ukraine faltering badly, the Russian President on Wednesday announced the immediate "partial mobilization" of Russian citizens. Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu said on Russian television that the country will call up 300,000 reservists. If they end up facing Ukrainian guns on the front lines, they are likely to become the newest casualties in the invasion Putin started more than seven months ago and that has seen the Russian military fail at almost every aspect of modern war."The Russian military is not currently equipped to rapidly and effectively deploy 300,000 reservists," said Alex Lord, Europe and Eurasia specialist at the Sibylline strategic analysis firm in London."Russia is already struggling to effectively equip its professional forces in Ukraine, following significant equipment losses during the war," Lord said.Read MoreThe recent Ukrainian offensive, which has seen Kyiv recapture thousands of square meters of territory, has taken a significant toll.The...
    Scientists have developed a potentially groundbreaking drug that can solve the issue of drug resistant bacteria - and save over one million lives globally each year. Peptilogics, a Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania biotechnology firm, published results of trials for its new drug PLG0206 last week showing that it could defeat drug-resistant infections in both the lab environment and in animals. Importantly, it also did not spur the bacteria to further mutate in a way that will lead to it gaining more resistances. While it still may be a long way from treating drug-resistant infections in humans, scientists are hopeful that they have made a crucial first step in finding a solution to one of the world's budding medical crises. Antibiotic infections have emerged in recent decades because after rampant overuse of the drugs near the turn of the century. Experts project that the diseases will cause 50 million global deaths before 2050, and are currently responsible for over one million deaths each year.  Earlier this year, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) warned that the prevalence of these diseases surged...

    Regular vape users could be putting themselves at risk of suffering obstructions to their lungs' airways and asthma like symptoms, a new study finds. Researchers at Harvard University found that chronic vapers were suffering severe lung damage after years of using the devices - a worrying prospect as prevalence of the devices grows among teenagers and young adults. Nearly 10 percent of Americans - and more than one-in-four high schoolers - are regular e-cigarette users, according to official figures. The devices have been the target of regulators during the Biden administration, with many fearing that their proliferation will cause a surge in lung issues like cancer, popcorn lung, and COPD in the coming decades.  Dr Panagis Galiatsatos, director of the Tobacco Treatment Clinic at John's Hopkins University in Baltimore, Maryland, told DailyMail.com that these findings are not surprising, but should serve as a warning that vaping can cause significant lung damage and carries more risks than many may believe. A study finds that people who used e-cigarettes regularly for three or more years suffered damage to their airways of their lungs,...
    More than fourteen rabbits have died from a highly contagious virus that can be spread by humans, environmental authorities have warned. Veterinarians in Connecticut and South Carolina disclosed the sudden deaths from rabbit hemorrhagic disease virus type-2 (RHDV2) in feral herds this week, with thirteen in Connecticut dying within a day of each other. The virus is a 'serious threat' to rabbits, killing seven-in-ten of those it infects, and leaving them suffering bloody noses and mouths and struggling to breathe. Humans cannot catch the virus, experts say, but they can transmit the disease via hands or shoes. Owners are being told to wash their hands with warm soapy water before going to rabbitries and not let their pets interact with wild rabbits. The case marks the first time the virus has been detected in South Carolina. It reached the U.S. in 2018 and has since spread to 19 states across both the western and eastern coasts of the country. Rabbits are being killed by a virus that is fatal to 70 percent of those it infects (fil photo) The Connecticut...
    ONE college student made about $47,000 last year through five side hustles while still taking classes full-time. TikToker Olivia Kelliher said the reasons he discovered these ways were through financial struggle and a need to pay her way through college. 2Olivia said she ended up earning $47,000 for school after pursuing five different side hustlesCredit: TikTok 2Affiliate marketing is one of many ways to gain passive income right from your laptopCredit: Getty "In August of 2020, before the fall semester of my junior year, my mom sat me down and she was like 'look, Olivia, I don't know how in the hell we're gonna pay for school this year,'" she said in the video. Olivia continued that the tough financial position led her to seek out methods online to bring in a little cash to pay toward tuition. This led her to try online surveys for Amazon. She said: "The first thing I did was online surveys for Amazon, and I got paid no money for that, I got paid maybe five cents per survey." Read More on Side HustlesLUCRATIVE...

    Many women experience cognitive struggles during pregnancy and after birth, in what is often referred to as 'baby brain.' Now, a new study suggests that men may experience brain changes following the birth of their first child too. Researchers from Carlos III Health Institute in Madrid found that first-time fathers lose a percentage or two of cortical volume after their child is born. While the reason for this remains unclear, the researchers suggest that the change may make it easier for fathers to connect with their child. A new study suggests that men may experience brain changes following the birth of their first child too 'Baby brain' is REAL Pregnant women are more likely to get lost when they drive as a result of 'baby brain', research suggested in 2016. Key areas of the brain involved in helping people find their way around were smaller during the last month of pregnancy, a study found. This affects their ability to navigate and means they are more likely to get confused on a journey, German scientists claimed. Experts say changes in the levels...

    A SAVVY mum shared how she manages to save money by DIYing her son sports gear. She reckons she's saved hundreds with her trick, and doesn't see why other people fork out for the real thing. 4The savvy mum adds the logos to the clothes herselfCredit: SWNS Kat Burman, 37, says she doesn't see the point in spending money on name brand clothes when her son "only cares about playing football and running around with his friends". The beautician from Northampton got a £300 Cricut machine - which makes iron on designs - and decided to put it to use on her son's wardrobe. She makes Nike ticks and logos, then irons them on to £2.50 Primark t-shirts, as well as his plain PE bag. Savvy Kat also used the hack to turn alter a genuine Nike coat, covering over a pink logo - the only one in stock - with a white motif.

    A new campaign by a national organization of pro-life OB/GYNs is challenging the narratives of the abortion industry and its allies in the medical establishment, particularly its top assertion that abortion is women’s health care. “We know that 93% of practicing OB/GYNs do not perform abortion – and these are women’s healthcare specialists,” Dr. Christina Francis, CEO-elect of the American Association of Pro-Life Obstetricians and Gynecologists (AAPLOG) told The Star News Network. “If it was an essential part of women’s health care, they would all be doing it, but they don’t because they know that it ends the life of one of their patients, and they also know that it carries harms for women,” she said.

And a new study suggests that it takes just four minutes for your key personality traits to really shine through. Researchers from the University of Warwick had participants chat to strangers online for just four minutes, and found they quickly developed a sense of their partner's personality.  'In a laboratory setting, after only 4-minutes of "small talk", subjects developed a sense of the personality of their partners, particularly extraversion, which consequently changed their behaviour in future interactions,' the researchers said.

    In what could be considered a bit of friendly fire, Gary Player - a Golf Saudi ambassador - targeted Australian golfer Cameron Smith, who recently joined the LIV tour.

    President Joe Biden and first lady Jill Biden will host former President Barack Obama and former first lady Michelle Obama to the White House next week for the long-delayed unveiling of their official portraits.  If he had followed tradition, former President Donald Trump would have invited the Obamas to the White House for the ceremony during the spring of 2020.  Trump did no such thing.  That means it's been more than a decade since a first-term president has invited his predecessor for the event, which takes place next Wednesday.  These portraits differ from the modernist pieces of the Obamas that were unveiled at the Smithsonian's National Portrait Gallery in 2019.  The portrait unveiling ceremony tradition goes back decades.  It originated as a first ladies event - with first lady Lady Bird Johnson inviting Eleanor Roosevelt and Bess Truman to the White House, along with family and friends, for East Room ceremonies.  The last portrait ceremony to happen at the White House was in May 2012 when President Barack Obama (left) and first lady Michelle Obama (right) invited President George W.

    Frogs are beneficial wildlife to have in the garden. They are one of the best animals to have around really. They signal that the environment you’ve created is clean because they can’t survive in polluted environments. They have diets that are perfect for the gardener, naturally helping with pest control. And, like any wild animal, they habitually drop little pips of fertilizer as they hop to and fro. With that in mind, it might bring about another question: Which frogs are best for the garden? The simple answer is that all frogs are beneficial, and we can add toads to this notion as well. While there are poisonous frogs in the world, they tend to be brightly colored and residents of tropical environments. Frogs and toads of the United States are little to no threat to people though there are a few, particularly toads, that can be a threat to pets that lick or bite them. In other words, rather than figuring out which frogs to attract, the more relevant idea is how to attract any native frogs or...

    The transformative approach to school improvement is a catalyst for community revival. When Darlene Kamine tells the story about Oyler School in Cincinnati, Ohio, she also likes to tell the story about the house across the street from the school.

Kamine and the group she leads, the Community Learning Center Institute (CLCI), have played leading roles in the startling comeback of Oyler School, which is a pre-K through grade 12 school that sits at the center of Cincinnati’s Lower Price Hill (LPH) neighborhood. The historic district west of downtown became a destination for Appalachian families looking for factory work, “[w]hen coal mining jobs in Kentucky and West Virginia declined after World War II,” reported Amy Scott for Contexts, a peer-reviewed academic journal. But since the 1980s, the district “has seen a severe decline in population, businesses, and investment,” according to the LPH Resurgency Plan, a civic planning document approved by the Cincinnati City Council in 2019. “[S]uburban sprawl and economic decline had devastating effects on the neighborhood,” making LPH “one of the...

Philadelphia is ten games out of first place coming...
