Here is an idea - residential programs suited to these poor kids. 86 and in a home would be bad enough - but 26? People need more peer support than that.

Being Too Clean Hazardous to Health →
Headline a little misleading. The problem is with triclosan in antibacterial soaps, not using Purell or good old fashioned soap and water. Though the latter might chap your hands and leave you prone to infection. Be careful out there.

TREASURIES-Prices fall - Google News →
Lots of people are fussed about what the future holds in terms of inflation vs, deflation. The hyperworried are stocking up on gold, guns, and ammo. I think the safest thing to invest in right now would be in people telling other people what do to stay safe financially. No one ever got poor by exploiting fear.

'Light' Drinking Appears to Be Safe in Pregnancy →
It’s about time this has been publically stated. I knew of a pregnant bride who drank ginger ale, which she detested, for her wedding toast, rather than risk even a ceremonial sip of champagne. That was going too far. If you need a half a glass of wine in the second or third trimester, go for it - better than stress for the baby. Note - I say “half a glass” because most modern...
Data Affirm Small Benefit for Early Mammography →
Damn straight. My personal experience has been repeat visits for calcifications. It felt like a giant waste especially in terms of stress and worry and additional unneccesary radiation. Look at your real risk factors - then decide if after 40 or after 50 is right for you. I’m not planning on another mammogram for at least five years, but will continue BSE monthly instead. A smart attack on...
