Emotional support can be as important as medical, and even financial support for all kinds ofRead More conditions. Traditional sources of treatment often largely ignore the mind-body connection during and after treatment to the detriment of the best outcomes.

One Maryland high school football coach says education at the grassroots level through programs such as Heads Up Football is an effective method for cutting down on head injuries. File|Patch

Worried this will hurt the game? That's become an interesting phrase. But exactly what does itRead More mean? Lower attendance? Less enjoyable for fans? Does any of that trump the safety of the players? Sometimes I can't comprehend the level of egotism and selfishness. It's particularly worrisome in people who work with kids. I love football, but I put the players' welfare before my pleasure.

Let's face it: Football is a violent game. I can't imagine anyone letting their child play such anRead More injury-prone "sport". Sadly, from the trash movies and video games that our kids are weaned on, violence seems to be part of our culture. Too bad.

First of all the students weren't even on campus and second what say should the school have in theseRead More students lives, just stay out of there lives and stop trying to tell others how to live their lives, its just like a story i read recently where a college dean was telling students they couldn't be in relationships for the academic integrity of the school, also a story where an entire senor class was denied diplomas because half of them threw their caps in the air. This whole thing is getting ridiculous, between this and censorship i'm just sick of it all. Someone needs to keep people with authority in check.

When did a school lunch become such a primary event in a students' life? A home-served dinner shouldRead More be the primary meal event where the kiddies share daily events and nosh on the freshly prepared healthy foods selected by the nurturing adult in the home. School lunches should provide the kiddies with quick energy and inexpensive staples like mac 'n cheese, fries, chocolate milk, and ice cream. Volunteer in an Arlington public school cafeteria and see for yourself the food that is trashed daily that could probably alleviate the starving masses in India and Nigeria for a day! Kids also feel stigmatized by signing in with a school ID that designates free lunch recipients whereas the other kids produce the cash. School-provided breakfasts also rely on bagels and buns - all prone to add to obesity. Parents who don't take the time to provide breakfast to a kid are worthless.

I am 65 yrs old and remember eating in the school cafeteria for many years. The food was so so butRead More it was also a break from the old standby of PB&J or bologna sandwiches that was standard lunch fare in our household. My folks mixed it up but we also paid per day for every lunch we ate at school.. There is no right or wrong way to do this.. Make lunches at school cheaper or better tasting... My grand kids simply don't eat if the cafeteria serves crappy tasting food or if they don't like what I make for them at home.. Ergo, they don't eat anything from 7:30 in the morning when they have breakfast until at least 3:30 in the afternoon when they come home starving... I'm pretty sure most kids are like that since mom and dad are not there to insure that they eat.. Kids will be kids...

I don't know why but Todays African American youth are so angry with each other ? I don't understandRead More it . If you watch shows like the first 48 hours 99 % of the people on the show are African American and they are killing each other over exchanging words / Drug corners / Girls ect ect . I am not innocent by no means of blowing up and fighting back in my younger days . And I have learned to avoid people that upset me until I calm down so I don't get anymore charges and sitting in a holding cell . We need to teach our children to not allow themselves to get that worked up . Its not cool to hurt others . What is cool is when 2 people talk it out and shake hands and walk away from each other without throwing a punch

We have to make people aware that our State is run by public employee Unions and we need court casesRead More like today which ruled that the California Teacher Tenure rules are unconstitutional so that we can change laws and vote people out of office who do not represent the interests of the public who pay the taxes.

Something that is interesting to note is that high school grads are going to four year universitiesRead More and studying subject that isn't marketable. While on the other hand you have people getting vocational training at vocational schools that essentially guarantees them a job out of school that will make them 'x' amount of money. So it isn't that college degrees are worthless, some are. It is also said that sometimes trade school is the right choice!

We were outside from 7:42am-9:10am. The school didn't even check anyone's back packs. Nor did theyRead More have any police dogs sniff out the school. They were supposed to have checked our bags when they told us we had to go back in by they did not. I felt concerned for my friends and my two family members that attend Kenwood High School.

That's great if music was the end product of the school system. What about real subjects likeRead More reading, writing, all types of math and social studies. Why is it that Maryland high school graduates need remedial courses before they can take college level courses at a university because they can't read or write at an acceptable level.

I can't say enough to praise the George Washington Carver Center for Arts and Technology. My soonRead More graduated from there with high honors to go on and complete his Bachelors in Fine Arts at san Francisco Art Institute. He received a well rounded education and learned a strong discipline for his art plus the attitude of gratitude which he shared with younger students. One's creativity is a strong survival skill along with the reading writing and arithmetic. If you actually check out the school you will seed they have magnet programs for writing, visual arts, business administration and music along with culinary arts. It was my son's saving grace and I felt blessed every time he came and went form the school.

The previous commentators are OVERLOOKING the FACTS stated! No one is saying ALL college girls... weRead More are stating that there ARE BAD APPLES among young college girls. Stop the "all girls are perfect and victims" crap. There are plenty of girls in college (and I knew a few) that are extremely promiscuous and overly, insanely sexual... YES they exist and YES they are looking to start trouble at times for attention via sleeping with multiple guys WILLINGLY then feeling guilty later and claiming rape. Rape has become a word synonymous with the race card nowadays. One says the race card or rape and suddenly someone is labeled for life EVEN when they are found not guilty. The police dropped this case because it was NOT rape.
Maryellen Brady May 7, 2014 at 05:12 pm
The problem is that the universities are making ALL suspect and punishing them for coming forward.Read More The few BAD players, is no excuse for not investigating ALL allegations seriously. RAPE is not something women fake and considering that for so many years DATE RAPE was dismissed as teens gone wild, it is time that society ACT with intent to curb the violence against women. UNIVERSITIES, the military have gotten away far too long with overlooking the truth of the violence one gender imposes on another for ego sake!
You May 7, 2014 at 06:28 pm
@Mary where are your stats that "universities are making ALL suspect and punishing them forRead More coming forward"? What punishments are occurring? The colleges and police are finding the majority of cases ill-founded and false. Where are your REAL stats? You are making assumptions and assumptions are exactly what makes BAD and false facts. I feel it is more like this... there are some seriously promiscuous, highly sexual girls in college (that may be mentally unstable) and when they suddenly feel guilty about giving it up to everyone they shout Rape. Kinda like males that suddenly shoot up a school out of now where. Yelling Rape is an instant action which gains attention from people of power and advocates which throw money and attention to them. The girls who cry wolf are the ones crushing the reality of true rape (which is horrible of course). I am very speculative about how many young girls are just crying wolf for attention after having sex with a male. The Duke case is the perfect example which has occurred over and over the past 15 years and hurts the reality of rape. Girls looking for money and attention after willingly having sex with men in a college world.
