While Americans across the country were rightfully occupied with the racist chants from President Donald Trump's North Carolina rally this week, hardly anyone mentioned that Trump also said "g***amn" twice and "bulls***" once.
People didn't notice because public profanity has become a hallmark of Trump's presidency. After all, people infamously heard him brag about grabbing women "by the p***y," and he still managed to ascend to the highest office in the land.
Trump Administration's New Housing Plan Would Displace Over 55,000 Legally Eligible Children From Public Housing
Housing and Urban Development—a cabinet agency headed by President Donald Trump appointee Dr. Ben Carson—proposed another rule Friday orchestrated by Trump adviser Stephen Miller—the man behind Homeland Security and the Justice Department's family separation policy.
Miller's latest effort—published in the Federal Register—changes regulations regarding undocumented immigrants in federally subsidized housing, even though other family members are documented legal residents or United States citizens.
New York Times Explains Why Parents Are Spending More Time and Money on Their Kids Now Than Ever Before
Over the past two generations, the amount of time and money parents put toward their children has skyrocketed. Now a New York Times report is explaining why.
Though many may dismiss the growth of parental presence and assistance as another indicator of coddled young people, the trend is more in response to increasingly uncertain futures and growing labor competition in an age where children only have a 50% chance of earning more money than their parents.
Mysterious New Condition That Causes Paralysis In Children Has Experts Stumped, and Incidents Are On The Rise
The headlines began in 2014: Formerly healthy children contracted what seemed to be a minor upper respiratory infection and were suddenly paralyzed — sometimes one limb, sometimes multiple limbs, sometimes permanently.
Parents and experts wondered if it could be a brand-new virus, West Nile disease, or even a mutated version of polio, which hadn’t been seen in the U.S. since the late 1970s.
Medical Experts Are Warning of the Traumatic Effects Trump's Family Separation Policy Is Having on Children
The Trump administration has recently come under fire for its policy of forcibly separating children from their parents. Although Trump issued somewhat of a mea culpa, by signing an executive order ending his own administration's policy of forcible separation, the damage was still done.
Through the executive order, Trump is basically ordering that the policy that children be separated from their undocumented parents be replaced with a policy that entire families would be detained, despite previously asserting that “you can't do it by executive order."
This is a tale of two children.
Their brain scans came to the attention of Professor Bruce Perry, chief of psychiatry at Texas Children’s Hospital. The difference between the two scans tells a horrifying story. One looks small and, for lack of a better word, desiccated. The other looks like the brain scan of an adult, in miniature.
If it feels like opioid abuse has reached crisis levels in your city or community, you’re not wrong: America’s current rate of opioid addiction is now the biggest drug epidemic in national history. Nearly 500,000 people have died from overdoses in the past 15 years, mostly from heroin and related substances — prompting the president to declare opioid addiction a national public health emergency in October.
It’s no secret drug abuse strains state and community resources such as hospitals, clinics and jails, but one trend should have Americans particularly disturbed: The growing number of kids in foster care.
