Most Doctors Agree to 'Spread Out' Kids' Shots, Survey Finds
Mon Mar 2, 2015
Having shots 30 days apart doesn't put anyone at risk unless a parent doesn't go through with the whole series in a timely way. These vaccine schedules were developed with lowest common denominator "public health" issues in mind: statistically, the number of parents taking babies for well-child visi …
Indiana Dad Charged After Daughter, 4, Shoots Him by Accident
Sun Feb 15, 2015
In reply to:Misscreant #2.1 Four-year-olds are in booster seats, which generally use a car's seatbelts. She easily could have leaned over and reached into his overalls anyway. The fact that people keep leaving loaded weapons where children can reach them is seriously disturbing.
Mom transforms American Girl doll into a boy for her son
Tue Jan 27, 2015
These kids are lucky to have such a creative mom! She did a super job transforming the second-hand doll (I wonder how she fixed the eye?!). I'm sure her kids have a lot of fun playing with their "characters" together. This kind of imaginative play is really healthy for kids--less screen time and mor …
Campaign to knit mittens for injured koalas successful, adorable
Thu Jan 8, 2015
In reply to:K Z #1 The writer of this article is so ignorant that "fabric," "knit," and "sewing needle" are all jumbled up in one sentence. You are absolutely correct: all the mittens shown in the video are SEWN, not knitted, and if the rescue service is requesting that new mittens be made of 100 pe …

I am so glad that this young woman has managed to get herself to college. She should be extremely proud of her achievements! I hope she continues to do well.
South African Toddlers Switched at Birth Shouldn't Be Exchanged, Expert Says
Wed Nov 26, 2014
In reply to: J-1171331 #11 My thoughts exactly! It is an impossible situation. I would long for both children. Probably the best, most loving, thing to do would be to create close ties between the families, but that could be really tough if they have nothing else in common. I can't imagine the pain …
Tamir Rice Shooting by Cleveland Police Under Investigation
Mon Nov 24, 2014
In reply to: MLNW-1795048 #4.4 There is no different set of standards for a gun that looks real. I read my son the riot act when I found him trying to take stickers off his toy gun and explained to him very clearly that being that stupid could cost him his life. We had multiple talks about how you d …
Cost to Treat Ebola: $1 Million For Two Patients
Tue Nov 18, 2014
In reply to: Jonathan Reid-1158169 #19 Agreed! The expense of treating these patients just shows that we absolutely can't afford to have more than a handful of Ebola cases here. Ebola: deadly AND expensive!

Kaci Hickox, Nurse in Ebola Quarantine Standoff, Goes for a Bike Ride
Thu Oct 30, 2014
In reply to: Dan Ari-1904011 #108 The flu has a death rate of .5 (that's point five!) per 100,000 infected people. Ebola's death rate per 100,000 people would be somewhere in the neighborhood of 50,000 to 90,000 people. Really, regardless of what one thinks of the quarantine issue, comparing the flu …
