More mothers are ending up behind bars. Meeting the needs of their children is becoming a bigger priority

Atlanta (CNN)It’s just before sunrise on a Saturday morning, and the first few children are slowly trickling in. They’ve arrived at an office space that could easily be mistaken for a cheerful elementary school classroom, with its bright primary colors and cubbies along the wall. The teenagers slump onto couches, while the littlest ones mostly stand, rubbing sleepy eyes. “We’re all one here,” says Charlene, who asked that her last name not be used because of the stigma of incarceration. “You don’t feel so bad visiting your daughter in prison. It feels like we’re just going on an outing.” These outings are the creation of Sandra Barnhill and her staff at Foreverfamily. Every month, caregivers and children pick up breakfasts …

Life lessons from the native tribe with the healthiest hearts in the world

(CNN)A few years ago, I read reports of an indigenous tribe living deep in the Amazon rainforest whose members had hardly any evidence of heart disease. In fact, the researchers concluded after a year-long study that the Tsimane, as they are called, had the healthiest hearts in the world, a title previously held by Japanese women. That night, we set up our tents in the middle of the village and began our life as Tsimane. Thatched huts surrounded us, with no electricity or modern conveniences. One day, I pulled out my iPad, tapping and swiping through the screen, and the Tsimane were slack-jawed and wide-eyed, looking at me like I was a sorcerer. I went foraging with the women, hunting …

Psychiatrists Say Mueller Report Offers More Proof Of Trumps Mental Decline

Donald Trump’s “reckless” response to the investigation into his campaign as detailed by special counsel “The singular reaction is perhaps indicative of the extent to which the president is, as with his contrary reaction to Russia’s attack on the integrity and validity of our process of electing a president, preoccupied with himself to the point where he does not even consider the good of the nation,” states The report bears an unwieldy title: “Mental Health Analysis of the Special Counsel’s Report on the Investigation Into Russian Interference in the 2016 Presidential Election.” The authors’ chosen subtitle, though, goes more to the heart of their thesis: “If One is Too Incompetent to Commit a Crime, Despite Trying Hard, Is One Competent …

More female teachers report upskirting

Offenders now face up to two years in prison for taking a photo or video under someone’s clothing. The NASUWT, which is meeting for its annual conference in Belfast over the Easter weekend, says often victims are unaware that the abuse has taken place. “Talking to members about it, the thing they find the most difficult is that quite often they don’t know that this has happened – the video has been out there and then it is drawn to their attention,” said general secretary Chris Keates. “Then they think, if I go and report it, is that going to make it worse because it will draw attention to the fact that the video is there.” Upskirting now a crime …

The breast cancer surgeon who got breast cancer

“Like many women, I did not check my breasts. I thought, ‘it’s not going to happen to me – I’m a breast cancer surgeon’.” Liz O’Riordan ended up having to give up the job she had trained 20 years for, after she herself was diagnosed with breast cancer. In 2015, at the age of 40, she had a mastectomy and last May suffered a recurrence of the disease.

Radiotherapy for the second bout of cancer left her with reduced movement in her shoulder, causing her to make the “emotionally very hard” …

Doctors develop ‘cure’ for babies with ‘bubble boy’ disease

(CNN)Dannie Hawkins dreamed for her precious baby nephew, Ja’Ceon Golden, to experience the simple joys of childhood — swimming in pools during the summer, going to birthday parties, playing in parks filled with people, having a pet — without risk. ‘This is a cure’ Ja’Ceon and Omarion were both diagnosed as infants with a rare genetic disorder called X-linked severe combined immunodeficiency or SCID-X1.

George Mason University Doesn’t Care That Its Students Oppose Brett Kavanaugh’s Hire

FAIRFAX, Va. ― Brett Kavanaugh for a teaching gig. But too bad. “Even if the outcome is painful, what’s at stake is very, very important for the integrity of the university,” Cabrera said to audible gasps from students in the audience during a two-hour town hall on Kavanaugh’s hire and sexual violence in general on campus. “Oh, my God,” one female student said aloud. “Why?” asked another, to no one in particular.
