Americans are learning to live in a riskier world

by Dean Rieck 2018: Buckeye Firearms Association's Long List of Activities & Accomplishments Ohio – -(AmmoLand.com)- When I began thinking about writing a review of this year's activities, it didn't take long to realize that this would be a daunting task.

The Coolest Things You Never Knew About Nursing

Illustrated by: Amrita Marino. It sustains life. It boosts immunity. It may or may not taste like the milk leftover from a bowl of Lucky Charms. (Full disclosure: I sampled mine just once, years ago, and I only can recall it vaguely tasting like cantaloupe juice).The truth is, breast milk’s powers are kind of insane. Obviously, the mere fact that it's food for a tiny human that comes from your body is a pretty wild place to start. But the cool factor goes way beyond that. There’s also resear...

Pediatrician Asks, Why Can’t I Talk To You About Guns In The Home?

WBUR: Here’s a conversation I was in on recently between a pediatric intern and the parents of a healthy, 1-day-old baby. It occurred in the Yale-New Haven Hospital well baby nursery. “Your daughter’s physical exam is perfect,” the intern said. “She’s eating well, peeing and pooping well. I want to talk to you a little about how to help you keep her safe and healthy.” Next came a standard discussion about the baby’s sleeping position and whether she’s got a car seat.

For parents of newborns and toddlers, sleep is a constant topic of conversation and concern. By the time those babies turn into teenagers, though, most parents don't give much sleep much thought, except maybe to marvel at how a kid who once bounced out of bed at dawn can now sleep past noon. And yet sleep is just as critical for the still-growing brains and bodies of teenagers as it is in younger children. That's why in honor of the National Sleep Foundation's Sleep Awareness Week (March 6-13), ...
