    A Chinese kindergarten teacher was sentenced to death on Monday after she poisoned "dozens of children," killing one, CNN reported. The outlet reported that the teacher, Wang Yun, carried out the heinous act in retaliation against a colleague. What are the details? The attack took place in March 2019 when Wang put sodium nitrite in porridge being prepared for the unnamed colleague's students. Sodium nitrite, necessary for curing meats, can sicken and even kill depending on the amount ingested. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention also has determined that sodium nitrite — a toxic substance — is used in munitions and fertilizer. At high levels, sodium nitrite can prevent the body from efficient — and necessary —...

    The theme of Colorado Governor Jared Polis's September 29 update on the fight against COVID-19 in the state was what he referred to as "lost children" — kids who aren't going to school in person or participating in remote education efforts and may be at risk of suffering major learning shortfalls as a result. "This shouldn't be politicized. It should be personalized," Polis stressed. "Many kids are living with grandparents or others who are medically vulnerable — or online works well for them. But what we're worried about are kids who aren't doing either online or in-person [learning]. And other than parents willing to take on the rigors of home schooling, including the social aspect, they need to enroll their...

    The majority of Americans say front-line healthcare workers should be the first to get a coronavirus vaccine once it is available, a new survey finds. More than 90 percent believe doctors, nurses and other medical professionals are 'high priority' and should be inoculated ahead of other groups. Following them should be children with underlying medical conditions and high-risk older adults, according to the participants. The team, from the University of Minnesota School of Public Health, says including 'public preference' when drafting 'vaccine allocation guidelines' can make them more legitimate in the eyes of the general population and encourage them to be vaccinated against the disease that has killed more than 200,000 Americans.  Researchers surveyed more than 1,000 adults and...

    CHICAGO (CBS) — A lawsuit is soon expected to be filed by some parents in hopes of putting Illinois student athletes back in play. As CBS 2’s Jermont Terry reported Monday night, the attorney representing a few dozen students said this could mean much more for thousands. It is a fight to let student athletes play in Illinois.

    The leftist PAC NextGen America’s Managing Director, John Lee Brougher, is behind attacks on Judge Amy Coney Barrett’s adopted children, roping several Democrat U.S. Senators and Senate candidates into the smears on her family. This weekend, as Breitbart News reported, before President Donald Trump even formally nominated Barrett to fill the Supreme Court vacancy left behind by the passing of the late Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Brougher leveled vicious personal smears against her, questioning the legitimacy of the adoptions she and her husband made of two children from Haiti. “As an adoptee, I need to know more about the circumstances of how Amy Coney Barrett came to adopt her children, and the treatment of them since,” Brougher wrote in a tweet....
    According to a report by the New York Times, multiple White House staffers spent this summer pressuring the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to relax its recommendations about restarting schools in the fall and succeeded in getting several key documents and communications edited, because President Donald Trump wanted schools reopened before the election. The staffers reportedly involved include Dr. Deborah Birx and Mark Short, Vice President Mike Pence‘s chief of staff. A key source for the Times article was Olivia Troye, a former Pence staffer and lifelong Republicans who resigned last month and, since then, has come out in support of Joe Biden and vocally criticized the White House in interviews this month.

    SPRINGFORD, Pa. (CBS) — Some Springford School District parents are calling for an end to all-virtual instruction. They demonstrated outside of the high school before the school board meeting Monday night. The parents say Springford is the only Montgomery County school district that does not have a plan to offer in-person classes. “Our kids are not engaged in Zoom learning. They are falling behind. Many parents with children that have IEPs, who are working parents, are struggling with supporting their children as well as doing their own full-time jobs,” parent Jill Schadler said. Parents are asking the school board to come up with a plan to transition students to in-person learning.

    (CBS4) – In the race to develop a vaccine for COVID-19, many of us may not realize it will take even longer to develop an immunization for children. CBS4 Medical Editor Dr. Dave Hnida explained the process on CBSN Denver. “You begin testing for safety and effectiveness on younger, healthier people. If they have no issues, then you gradually work your way down the line.” “You look at older people, then on people with chronic underlying conditions, minorities. Then last you wind up going to children as well as pregnant women.” Dr. Dave said the process is necessary because children are not just little adults. “Their immune systems are totally different. When you look vaccines that are tested and administered...
    Pre-teen and teenage children are about twice as likely as younger kids to catch coronavirus and spread it at school, Centers  for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) data reveals.  Since the COVID-19 pandemic really kicked off in the US in March, 277,285 children have caught the virus.  Older and Latinx children were each about twice as likely to be diagnosed with coronavirus than were  younger kids or those of other races, respectively, according to the new CDC data.  Children have typically not gotten as sick as adults when they do get coronavirus.  When the beginning of the fall school semester was approaching, parents, educators and public health officials worried that they could become silent spreaders.  But only about five percent...
    A feminist journalist said that the nomination announcement of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s replacement to the Supreme Court was “a display of Amy Coney Barrett weaponizing her white womanhood.” “This whole press conference is a display of Amy Coney Barrett weaponizing her white womanhood to grab whatever power managed to slip through the cracks in the Trump administration’s unrelenting misogyny,” tweeted journalist Christine Grimaldi. “Trump and Barrett using her black children and child with down syndrome to score political points isn’t surprising, but it’s no less appalling,” she added. “CNN keeps going on and on about Barrett’s family, as if that makes her qualified to serve on the Supreme Court, and a whopping three years as a Trump-appointed federal judge,...

    “We should never forget that everything Adolf Hitler did in Germany was ‘legal.’” — Martin Luther King Jr. In other words, what is legal is not necessarily what is right. With that in mind, I find myself struggling to imagine what justice for Breonna Taylor would have looked like. After all, this week’s refusal by a grand jury to indict the Louisville police officers who killed her in March during a bungled midnight drug raid is likely defensible on narrow legal grounds. When someone shoots at you, as Taylor’s boyfriend did, firing a single shot at what he thought were home invaders, you have the right to shoot back. But narrow legalities do not address, much less resolve, the sense...

    Illustrating children's books with too many detailed, non-essential pictures makes it 'harder for kids to focus and absorb knowledge', a study has demonstrated. Colourful pictures intended to motivate young readers may achieve the exact opposite by drawing attention away from the story text, US researchers warned. Although reading is considered a 'gateway for learning', around 20 per cent of children in the UK do not meet the minimum level of literacy proficiency. Children’s books typically include eye-catching illustrations to help readers visualise the characters and setting of the story. However, eye-tracking studies found that too many pictures can prove distracting.  Illustrating children's books with too many detailed, non-essential pictures makes it 'harder for kids to focus and absorb knowledge', a...

They also have a special needs child with Down Syndrome. In fall 2020, the kids were as follows: Emma (19), Vivian (16), Tess (16), John Peter (13), Liam (11), Juliet (9), and Benjamin (8).

    By Steve Holland WASHINGTON (Reuters) - As the parent of seven children, Amy Coney Barrett knows about working with a large group: it is an experience she will have again if confirmed as the ninth justice on the U.S. Supreme Court - and its first mother with school-age children. In a flag-bedecked White House Rose Garden, President Donald Trump on Saturday nominated the 48-year-old Barrett for the seat left open by the death of liberal Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. Husband Jesse Barrett and their seven children were on hand and visited with Trump in the Oval Office. "The president has asked me to become the ninth justice, and as it happens I'm used to being in a group of nine,...
    BALTIMORE (WJZ) — Baltimore City health officials said they’ve noticed an alarming number of students without proper vaccines against childhood diseases. Some local schools are making sure kids are ready to go back to school. With the school year officially underway, students should be getting their vaccines for things like measles and mumps. But, health officials say an increasing number of students aren’t getting vaccinated. University Of Maryland physician Dr. Matthew Grant said part of the blame is on the coronavirus pandemic. “People don’t necessarily think they have to get all of the vaccinations if their children are distance learning but it’s still just as important if they are going out into the community to play with friends or go to...

    During MSNBC’s coverage of Judge Amy Coney Barrett’s Supreme Court nomination on Saturday, MSNBC host Rev. Al Sharpton stated that the audience for Barrett’s nomination ceremony at the White House “was the least diverse audience” he’s seen for such an announcement and remarked that “I was glad her two kids did come out. Because I couldn’t find too many other people of color in that audience.” Sharpton said, “It is almost offensive for him [President Donald Trump] to brag about her adopting children from Haiti, which is certainly honorable. He called Haiti an s-hole country. So, he’s sitting there with the height of hypocrisy, in terms of his own rhetoric in the past.” After listing some of his other problems...

    Americans dedicated to protecting life and religious freedom are celebrating President Donald Trump’s choice of Judge Amy Coney Barrett to fill the vacancy on the U.S. Supreme Court. Abby Johnson, a former Planned Parenthood manager-turned pro-life activist, said: This is the moment that the pro-life movement and those who hold all life to be dear and treasured have been waiting for.

While at the park, MacBain was playing with squirt guns with his children. At one...
    Kathie Lee Gifford had a memorable summer as both of her children tied the knot, and the 67-year-old said she could feel the presence of her late husband “smiling” down on the joyful days. The former Today show host opened up this week about the big events, as 27-year-old daughter Cassidy walked the aisle with now-husband Ben Wierda in June and son Cody tied the knot with Erika Brown in September. Speaking to Entertainment Tonight, Gifford said both events were beautiful even though each had to be unexpectedly pared down due to restrictions from the coronavirus that led to bans on large gatherings. Instead, each ended up being more intimate, with just close family members in attendance. The former television...

    When the WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange was both a free man and at the height of his new-found fame and notoriety, in early 2011, he agreed to furnish a fascinated world with his autobiography. One of the chapter titles he suggested to his ghost writer, the respected author Andrew O’Hagan, ought to be ‘Women’. This did not go down well with Assange’s then-girlfriend and aide de camp, Sarah Harrison, a young Englishwoman who had joined WikiLeaks as a starry-eyed intern. For her, some of that stardust had clearly faded. Society connections: Assange celebrates his 40th birthday with former friend Jemima Goldsmith, who stood him bail. She later withdrew her support for him ‘He’s got such appalling, sleazy stories about women,...
    This is the horrifying moment a mother-of-two was hogtied and carried out of her house by officers after a Child Protective Services (CPS) visit gone wrong. In June 2017, Vanessa Peoples's two-year-old son wandered off during a family picnic and, though he was quickly found, it wasn't before a stranger called 911 and reported her.   One month later, a CPS worker visited her home in Aurora, Colorado, and called police when nobody answered the door because she feared the children had been left alone, according to the magazine Reason. Peoples was home but hadn't heard the knocks, which officers said was 'concerning.'  When Peoples's mother and a police officer got into an altercation - and Peoples tried to intervene - they...
    The family of a boy suspended from school for having an unloaded BB gun in the background of his at-home video feed called the situation an "injustice." Nine-year-old Ka Mauri Harrison was taking a test virtually when he saw his teacher rush to get his attention after she spotted the BB gun in his room, a New Orleans NBC affiliate WDSU reported. Ka Mauri's parents chose to start the school year off remotely, due to the coronavirus pandemic.  The incident resulted in the fourth grader being expelled from his school. However, his punishment was reduced to a suspension this week. Harrison's family called the punishment a mistake, adding that it threatens their son's academic future. "This is an injustice. It's...
    Three-quarters of American parents are more worried than ever about their child’s online safety — due to distance learning, according to new research. As children return to their classrooms virtually, the survey asked 2,000 American parents of school-aged children about the learning curves they’re experiencing alongside their children this school year and the worries that come with them. Results revealed 76 percent of respondents are worried about their child’s online safety while distance learning – with 41 percent strongly agreeing with this sentiment. SWNS Commissioned by Lightspeed Systems, which offers online safety and analytics solutions and conducted by OnePoll, the survey found 84 percent of parents whose child uses a school-issued device for distance learning (approximately 1,000 respondents) have had...
    Children are about half as susceptible to coronavirus as adults, new research  suggests.  And a second data compilation by American Academy of Pediatrics and the Children’s Hospital Association found that only about 100 US teenagers and kids have died of COVID-19 since the pandemic kicked off in America.  Researchers at the UK's Institute of Child Health found that the odds ratio of a child being infected after coming into contact with someone was 0.56, compared to adults.  That means that if two children and two adults interacted with the same contagious person, the odds are that both adults would contract coronavirus, but just one child would.  It adds to a growing and somewhat reassuring body of evidence that sending children...
    It is amazing to think that for most of our schools, they have made it almost through at least a month, using the split days plan and some virtual with none of them having to backtrack and go to full virtual. I have to say, I had my doubts, but at the same time, I am so happy for the school districts and everyone involved that their hard work has paid off, at least for now. This week’s column contains a variety of things I liked and you might want to check out on your own and share with your children. A website keeps coming up on my Facebook, where I continue to look up things for my education column,...
    To a child, it was the perfect name: Dr. Good. Simple, straightforward, uncomplicated. Who wouldn’t want a doctor who was good? So it made sense that my parents, just weeks after moving to Southern California from Philadelphia, picked that name out of the phone book and made Dr. Good our family physician. He was kind, almost timid in his gentleness. But there was also a mystery behind the slight build and the high-pitched, nasally, accented voice, always spoken just above a whisper. There also was his unfamiliarity, as an immigrant, with U.S. culture, like the summer he set my broken arm then told me I could play football but had to avoid contact sports. Four decades would pass before Dr....
    The Parents Television Council (PTC) is calling for the White House to look into Netflix over claims the streaming giant has a pattern of “behavior” regarding content that "sexualizes" children, according to the parent organization. The request comes amid the controversy over “Cuties,” a French film that tells the coming-of-age story of an 11-year-old girl as she discovers her maturing self, all while looking for acceptance in her religious family and group of young dancers she hopes to befriend. The movie sparked backlash and even led to the hashtag #CancelNetflix trending on social media. In a statement to Fox News on Thursday, the PTC called for President Trump and the Department of Justice to probe Netflix about "Cuties" and for its alleged "pattern of behavior." “We are ultimately asking the...
    Joel Embiid and his girlfriend welcomed their first child on Thursday. Joel Embiid and the Philadelphia 76ers had NBA championship aspirations this season. But that never came to fruition, as the 76ers were the first team eliminated from the playoffs in the Orlando bubble after getting swept by the Boston Celtics.

    Fewer than one percent of students and teachers have tested positive since US classes began this fall, new data reveals.  Early data from Brown University's tracking of hundreds of schools across the US suggests that infection risks are relatively low in classrooms, despite public health officials' and parents' anxieties that that in-person learning could trigger outbreaks.  President Trump has not shared those fears, bluntly demanding at an Ohio campaign rally: 'Open your schools, everybody, open your schools.'  Only 0.23 percent of students - including kids attending class in-person as well as virtually - have caught coronavirus, and 0.51 percent of teachers have been infected, Brown's data dashboard shows.  It comes after a study published in Science found that the theory...

    Is our society turning the blessing of de facto childhood immunity to COVID-19, along with the very elements that can help make them immune to severe symptoms, into a curse? Even the schools that have opened their doors are engaging in mass testing of children and liberally quarantining anyone who might have been exposed to any child who tests positive, regardless of symptoms. In many cases, that involves shutting down an entire class for two weeks. A friend's second-grade daughter at a Baltimore-area private school was stuck at home for two weeks because she was in a carpool with a child who tested positive and never exhibited any symptoms. His sixth-grader was already at home because...
    A new study from Brown University researchers finds that there is minimal evidence to support the idea that the coronavirus is easily transferred inside K-12 school buildings. What are the details? As highlighted by The Hill, researchers — who collaborated with school administrators across the nation on a new National COVID-19 School Response Data Dashboard — released the data from the study on Wednesday. The study finds that there is a "relatively small degree of spread among staff and students." Researchers drew their conclusions based on data received from more than 550 schools in 46 states across the country over a two-week period beginning Aug. 31. The study found that just...

    (CNN)While nearly half of US states now report a rise in new Covid-19 cases, a leading public health official announced the majority of Americans remain susceptible to the virus. Speaking to the Senate Health Committee this week, US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Director Dr. Robert Redfield said preliminary results on the first round of a study by the agency show more than 90% of the population is susceptible. That means more than 295 million Americans could still get infected with the virus.
