    I can't even place the very first moment I heard of it, but I was in my very early teens when the internet started "happening."By the time I was 20 we didn't know what we'd do without it, and that was before social media like Facebook was even created.I say that because I really try to imagine in my mind living in the world without any of it, which is only possible because the first third of my life was that way. In some ways it seems nice to me, like life would be less...noisy.And then I see something like...
  • Newborn baby’s smell is as addictive as drugs or food: study

    02/24/2014 8:47:51 PM PST · by Altariel · 30 replies
    TORONTO – For women, smelling a newborn baby feels as good as drugs are to addicts or cheeseburgers to those just breaking a fast, new Montreal research suggests. A University of Montreal scientist says a newborn baby’s odour lights up the reward centres in our brain in a way other scents can’t. And for women – specifically moms – the experience, a rush of dopamine to the brain, is heightened. The reaction is so strong, it exists even if the baby isn’t in front of you. It’s chemistry between mom and baby. “What we’ve shown for the first time is...

    When Claire Ives was seven months pregnant with her third child, she used a handheld device to listen to her unborn son's heartbeat. As she turned the machine on, she thought something had malfunctioned. "I thought I wasn't listening right or something," Ives, a nurse in London, told ABCNews.com. "I didn't believe his [heart] rate could be that fast." Ives' son had a heart rate of about 300 beats per minute, nearly double the normal 160. After doctors were alerted to the baby's elevated heart rate, Ives delivered her son, Edward Ives, five weeks early via emergency cesarean at the...

    The IDF Field Hospital in Haiti has delivered its first baby, and the mother was so happy that she called him “Israel.” Mother and son are doing well. Gynecologist Dr. Shrir Dor, an IDF Major General, said that after the birth, the person who accompanied her “came to bless her, and said he thought the baby should be named ‘Israel.’ The mother was really happy so they named him that, as a way to remember the first baby that was born in the IDF Field Hospital." The event was one of the happier occasions as rescue workers estimate that 200,000...

    Sarah Palin ignited a political firestorm when she worried that "death panels" would deny end-of-life treatment to her son with Down syndrome. In fact, ObamaCare would more likely see to it that people like Trig never even make it out of the womb. The outlook for children found to have disabilities in utero is bleak now -- because the medical-ethics establishment has spent decades pushing for their abortion. Thanks to advances in prenatal testing, it's now far easier to detect conditions like cystic fibrosis and spina bifida -- and our "best and brightest" overwhelmingly counsel parents to destroy the unborn...

Now he was here, squirming in his blankets... The specialists she consulted offered Danielle a "selective reduction": They could abort the malformed twin.

The child, born today, has no arms, only one leg, and is missing a good portion of his jaw - but his prognosis is good. The baby was abandoned by his mother under the Florida Safe Haven law and, unless potential adoptive parents can be found, quickly, the child will become a ward of the state(and, it is feared, the target of euthanasia).

Parents in Oklahoma apparently like to thumb through the Bible, watch Bryant slam-dunk, or take in the popular television sitcom while mulling over names for their children-to-be. According to statistics provided by the state's Health Department, there were 74 children born in Oklahoma in 2002 who were named Kobe or a derivative of the name. Religious names were also popular for the 50,160 babies born in Oklahoma last year. Jacob was...
