How to Help Your Kids Spot and Report Signs of Mass Violence Before Tragedy Strikes
With 18 school shootings already recorded in 2018— including Wednesday’s deadly spree in Parkland, Florida — parents and schools alike are grappling with the grim task of talking to kids about mass violence. It’s a tall order. In addition to broaching topics such as gun safety and helping kids process emotional and psychological trauma, adults are tasked with preparing children to recognize and report warning signs of violence before horrific events occur. In the wake of the Florida shooting, for example, sources ranging from gun control organizations to President Donald Trump emphasized the need to...

Amish People Stay Healthy in Old Age. Here ’s Their Secret
Many people think of the Amish as living without. These devout communities, predominantly located in Pennsylvania, Ohio and Indiana, go without cars, TVs, computers, phones or even the electricity needed to run so much of 21st century gadgetry. But what researchers who have studied them have found is what the Amish have a surplus of: good health in late life. The average American life expectancy is currently just under 79 years. Back in 1900, it was only 47, but for early–20th century Amish it was already greater than 70. Over the decades, most Americans have caught up in overall life expectancy, but the Amish still ...

A moment later, when the tips of your fingers have secured their grip, there’s a wholesale shift in the muscles you call on to maintain your safe purchase on the climbing wall. Exercise is all about engaging your muscles—from your heart to your biceps and quads—and asking those muscles to perform work. And when it comes to activating and training a diverse range of muscl...

Asthma Rates Among Children In The United States Are Dropping
BOSTON (CBS) – Asthma rates among children in the United States are dropping. According to the CDC, the percentage of children with asthma fell from 9.4% in 2010 to 8.3% in 2016. Hospitalizations were cut in half over a decade. Asthma is the leading cause of chronic illness in children and can be deadly, so declining rates of disease are encouraging. That means fewer missed days at school, fewer missed days at work for parents, and fewer kids dealing with the difficulties of managing a chronic illness. That said, half of kids with asthma had an asthma attack in 2016 so more work needs to be done. We need to continue ...

Real-terms cuts to school funding since 2015 have led to a big reduction in the number of secondary teachers, teaching assistants and support staff in England, says research published today (Wednesday) by the School Cuts alliance of education unions.

These cuts are now undeniably affecting front-line teaching. The latest School Cuts research – drawn solely from Government figures – shows that staff numbers in secondary sch...

Do you eat because you are hungry? While our automatic response may be “yes, of course,” many of us, in fact, eat due to stress or to deal with other unwanted emotions. The truth is, the choice to eat is not always about physical hunger. Perhaps the biggest challenge with a food addiction is that it is relatively acceptable when compared with other substance addictions. It is possible to be an emotional eater without anyone ever knowing about it. It does not impact your ability to drive a car, and likely will not result in financial ruin.
