    BEAUMONT, Texas (AP) -- Authorities found a shivering toddler clinging to the body of her drowned mother in a rain-swollen canal in Southeast Texas after the woman tried to carry her child to safety from Harvey's floods.

    I have been done with the Mainstream Media for a long time. I think when the Charlottesville Mayor blamed President Trump for what happened in Charlottesville last Saturday and when Wolf Blitzer from CNN implied yesterday that the attack in Barcelona was a "copycat" of Charlottesville.....this video had to be made. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WpQAoGgtEPc

    A 4 year old boy, Roman, in Croydon, south London used his mom's thumb to call for help. He can be heard saying: 'Hello I'm Roman.'

The woman on the phone then says to shake 'mummy' to wake her up, but Roman replies 'it's not working.' Paramedics were able to give life-saving first aid to the woman and she was taken to hospital after regaining consciousness at the home. She has since been...

    A single mother in Buffalo claims she was arrested and her children were unjustly taken from her custody just because she tried to homeschool them.

A week after filing the documents, Child Protective Services called asking why her children were not in school. She explained the situation and told them she could provide the paperwork proving she was homeschooling them. No indication...

    A judge this morning dismissed a reckless manslaughter charge against a Birmingham woman who had left her one-year-old daughter in the care of five other small children while she went out to a biker club. One of those children is now charged with intentionally killing the girl. The Jefferson County District Attorney's Office, however, could still present the case to a grand jury for possible indictment against the mother of the girl. Jefferson County District Court Judge Shelly Watkins refused to forward the reckless manslaughter charge against Katerra Lewis, 26, to a grand jury after hearing arguments from her attorney...

    Is there anything inherently “doggy” about the word “dog”? Obviously not—to the French, a dog is a chien, to Russians a sobaka, to Mandarin Chinese-speakers a gǒu. These words have nothing in common, and none seem any more connected to the canine essence than any other. One runs up against that wall with pretty much any word.Except some. The word for “mother” seems often either to be mama or have a nasal sound similar to m, like nana. The word for “father” seems often either to be papa or have a sound similar to p, like b, in it—such that...

She has a little sccoliosis that's gotten worse from a fall she took a couple years ago, and she never really did any work to get herself right, and instead she compensated for her pain/problem and made it worse. She has pain. the pain makes her use her arms and shoulders and muscles differently so that she can still do things, but that puts pressure on her body in different ways...
