It's easy to label a mass murderer as "crazy," "insane," or even "demented" — but these labels are just as easily dumped on people with legitimate mental illnesses, if misunderstood by the general public. People with mental illnesses and mass murderers are not one and the same, but the myth of mass shooters as mentally ill perpetuates a false equivalency.
As the Common Sense Media report shows, mobile technology has changed how children spend their time, and how parents engage — or don't — with their children. Screen time and mobile devices needn't be demonized, and it's all a matter of families finding the right media and tech consumption balance that works for them.
Changing the culture of sexual victimization begins at home, and every parent — man, woman, or otherwise — can do better for their own kids.
Against a pathetic attempt at legislative persuasion and threats of physical violence from GOP colleagues, Collins ultimately refused to tow the party line — and she just may have saved millions of Americans' lives by standing up for what's right — instead of what leans politically Right.
This Artist Turns Stretch Marks Into Rainbow Body Art & Her Message Of Revolutionary Self Love Is So Important
Cartró's work isn't just important, it's necessary. The female body is one that is always in flux throughout her lifetime: Our body parts bulge, shrink, stretch, sag, and give. Stretch marks are more than just an unfortunate side effect of aging and changes in body size: they trace our stories of personal growth. Her work reminds us that every woman's story is unique, valid, and deserves to be told — and more importantly, heard.
The future is here and I for one, welcome our new augmented-reality overlords.
What is the Graham-Cassidy amendment? Yes folks, Trumpcare is back — and it's even worse this time. (For the third time? Fourth? I don't even know anymore — it's the "I've lost count" time at this point.)
Hurricane Irma has roared through much of the French Caribbean and Puerto Rico. As a Category 5 storm, it has already been declared the strongest Atlantic storm on record, and its catastrophic destruction is far from over. Despite the dire and valid warnings to get out of the storm's deadly path, not every family can evacuate ahead of Hurricane Irma — and here's why.
On Sunday, POLITICO reported that President Donald Trump would end the Obama-era immigration policy known as Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals — or DACA, as it's more commonly referred. On Tuesday, the White House is expected to formalize the announcement to end DACA with a six-month implementation delay. Nearly 800,000 people would be affected by this major policy announcement, so what will happen to DREAMers if DACA ends?
DACA was implemented in 2012 to protect undocumented immigrants ...
What makes one city great for one parent-to-be may actually not be so great for another. There are plenty of safe cities to raise kids, cities with the best children's hospitals in the United States, and even cities with the best school districts in America — but these particular characteristics don't necessarily address those immediate issues with having a baby, such as breastfeeding, high-risk pregnancies, or even child care.
If you've been on Facebook recently, you might have noticed a rather jarring ad asking you to join the National Rifle Association. You know which Facebook ad I'm talking about — the one with conservative radio host and author Dana Loesch looking straight into the camera against a dark blue background, talking about "fake news" and "Hitler." Yeah, about that... here's the story behind that NRA ad in your Facebook feed. You might want to sit down, because it's not pretty.
Every human being deserves bodily autonomy and freedom over their own reproductive rights: Anti-choice policies strip away these basic human rights. Anti-choice candidates represent values — and real-world consequences — at odds with the progressive movement.
As with the character limits of Twitter, Trump didn't expand into the details of what this new ban means in the immediate term — because let's face it: He probably hasn't thought about it. His seemingly snap decision rings of the knee-jerk "shoot first, ask questions later" approach he took to his Muslim ban, but without the pomp and circumstance of signing an executive order from the Oval Office desk.
Hope doesn't have to be lost: There were many bigger stories that dominated the news cycle in 2016 more than others, often overshadowing some amazing stories about moms and motherhood. It's as if instinctively, moms knew this was going to be a craptacular year, and made up for it in their own ways.
When it comes to talent, Tesla doesn’t want passengers — they want drivers fueled by Tesla’s purpose. They are able to attract the right talent by signaling to high achievers that Tesla takes purpose seriously. Tesla has the numbers to prove that being selective with their talent pays off: Tesla Motors is currently valued at $33.5 billion, up from $1.7 billion on IPO six years ago.
