A scary trend in which cops infiltrate American schools and set up unassuming students for drug deals is emerging in the United States. Last week, the parents of a special-needs boy in Temecula, Calif., filed a claim against the local school district for helping “local authorities in an undercover drug sting that intentionally targeted and discriminated against their son.”
Spring may bring warm weather and trees in bloom, but that can also mean allergies or colds. However, several new remedies are readily available to help ease your symptoms: sneezing, runny nose and watery eyes.
If you’re looking to prevent colds or reduce your symptoms, try adding andrographis to your daily regimen. This extract is found in shrubs throughout India and Asia, and now has been popping up on shelves in the United States. Researchers have concluded that this supplement greatly reduced cold symptoms in a study of 433 patients.
A University of Illinois researcher, in a paper funded by ConAgra Foods, opines that American efforts to alleviate food insecurity should include encouraging more people to participate in the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), aka food stamps, “because it works.”
Today is Memorial Day, a day we’ve set aside to salute the veterans who laid their lives on the line and gave the ultimate sacrifice for their country, our country: the United States of America. Let’s set aside our partisan ideas and ideologies today and recognize those who have sacrificed for us. Remember, too, their families, who gave their loved ones on the altar of freedom.

As an ex-boyfriend attempted to break into her home, allegedly intent on assaulting her both physically and sexually, an unidentified Oregon woman did what everybody’s instructed to do: She called 911. A dispatcher answered. The woman described the situation, saying, “If he gets in the house, I’m done.” That’s when the dispatcher advised her to… figure it all out herself.
I have recently decided to start taking Vitamin D3 in the hopes of strengthening my immune system. I seem to get sick at least twice per year(I am right now), and I’m tired of relying on antibiotics to cure me. I was wondering how much D3 you would recommend I take per day (I bought 5000 UI capsules). I am 16 years old. I’m about 5 feet 11 inches tall, and I weigh roughly 145 pounds. Also, I was wondering if there is anything else you would recommend I take in order to improve my immune system and overall health.
A new project spearheaded by a group of historians, mathematicians and computer scientists at Columbia University in New York City is aimed at compiling all of the documents that have been declassified by the government in an easily searchable online database for research.
No one is exempt from disasters like the tornado that hit the Oklahoma City suburb of Moore, Okla., last week. My thoughts and prayers are with the families who lost their loved ones and those who lost their homes, personal belongings and businesses to the storm, which had winds of more than 200 miles per hour and which was 1.3 miles wide as it moved through the town.
