Addiction and Recovery: When Your Parents are the Problem 

 

I was 13.

My mother seated us in the back so that we could read and fidget without distracting the others. We weren’t the only kids there, but there weren’t many of us. We didn’t have family to watch us, and looking back, I realize how hard my mother must have worked to heal — while raising children. But it didn’t always work so well, sadly, as we were put into foster care later on.

The AA meetings we attended were usually pretty full. It was humbling to see so many men and women admit their weaknesses; it was heartbreaking to know that some people wouldn’t make it back.

Man Gets Horrifying Bacterial Infection From Cleaning His Fish Tank 

 

Pet owners are at risk for countless animal-related diseases. But you probably wouldn’t guess that owning a fish could be detrimental to your health. However, a recent article published in BMJ Case Reportsthis link opens in a new tab tells the story of a 73-year-old man who contracted a horrifying bacterial infection after cleaning his fish tank.

After breaking out in chickenpox-like rashes on his arms and torso, the unnamed man was sent to the University of Iowa’s infectious disease unit. The doctors who treated him first thought that he might have developed an infection from a bacterium called Nocardia, which can cause chest pain, coughing, and breathing difficulties.

More California students may be banned from using cellphones at school under new bill 

 

California students could be restricted or banned from using smartphones at school under a bill by a state lawmaker who says the devices can interfere with classroom learning.

The measure by Assemblyman Al Muratsuchi (D-Torrance) would require school boards to adopt policies that limit or prohibit the use of cellphones on school grounds, leaving it up to them what their rules would do.

“To the extent that smartphones are becoming too much of a distraction in the classroom, I think every school community needs to have that conversation as to when is too much of a good thing getting in the way of educational and social development,” Muratsuchi said Wednesday after introducing the bill.

Many school districts have already banned the use of cellphones, said Muratsuchi, a former Torrance school board member.

Tech Start-Up Wants to Help Travelers Avoid Homophobic Hotels 

 

The world’s largest short-term rental marketplace dedicated to the gay community has launched a campaign designed help LGBTQ travelers avoid homophobic hotels.

Misterb&b recently announced a Wefunder campaign that gives the public the opportunity to invest in the company in order to help launch its expansion beyond short term rentals and into hotels.

“Misterb&b wants to build equality into the sharing economy and give back to a community that’s been historically economically marginalized, by providing the misterb&b community with the power of part ownership of the company,” the company said in a statement.

Already a half-million dollars have been raised through the campaign, which the company says will be used to provide gay and gay-friendly hotel rooms on the platform.

Teaching children LGBT classes 'can help stop terror attacks', says gay rights row teacher 

 

Teaching children to reject homophobia can help stop terror attacks, according to a teacher at the centre of a gay rights row.

Andrew Moffat, who is the assistant head of Parkfield primary school in Birmingham, said getting pupils to understand ‘diversity and difference’ may help prevent further atrocities by those with extreme ideologies.

I’m Ugly. Will I Ever Stand a Chance in the Gay Dating World? 

 

Dear Papi,

I’m 25, just moved back to my hometown, and on three dating apps with no years of relationship experience under my belt. Papi, the truth is I’m beginning to think I’m...ugly. I feel I have a lot to give, but when it comes to getting a boyfriend, I’m scared I don’t look the part. I know it might sound shallow, but it’s all I can think about right now. What should I do, and will I ever find love?

Yours,
Ugly Duckling

How to see the 'super worm equinox moon,' the last supermoon of 2019 

 

Get ready, skywatchers. The last supermoon of 2019 will be visible in the night sky Wednesday, coinciding with the spring equinox that heralds the start of a new season.

The March 20 spectacle will be the final of this year’s three back-to-back supermoons. The first was on Jan. 21, and the second — the biggest and brightest supermoon of 2019 — was on Feb. 19.

A supermoon is a full moon that has reached the closest point to Earth in its monthly elliptical orbit around the planet. As such, supermoons appear larger and brighter in the night sky, though these changes are typically far too subtle to detect.

Full moons can be observed with the naked eye and don’t require any special equipment.

People's Brains Don't Reach Adulthood Until Age 30, Study Finds 

 

There's a good reason why managing adult responsibilities only became somewhat bearable in your 30s, according to researchers.

Although anyone over 18 years old is considered an adult, scientists argue that our brains don't mature that quickly, The Independent reports. Speaking at a meeting of the Academy of Medical Sciences in Oxford in London, researchers explained that our brains slowly transition to adulthood, which is finally reached in our 30s.

“What we’re really saying is that to have a definition of when you move from childhood to adulthood looks increasingly absurd,” professor Peter Jones, a neuroscientist at the University of Cambridge, explained at the meeting. “It’s a much more nuanced transition that takes place over three decades."

How Parents Are Robbing Their Children of Adulthood 

 

Helicopter parenting, the practice of hovering anxiously near one’s children, monitoring their every activity, is so 20th century. Some affluent mothers and fathers now are more like snowplows: machines chugging ahead, clearing any obstacles in their child’s path to success, so they don’t have to encounter failure, frustration or lost opportunities.

Taken to its criminal extreme, that means bribing SAT proctors and paying off college coaches to get children in to elite colleges — and then going to great lengths to make sure they never face the humiliation of knowing how they got there.

Kale is now one of the most pesticide-contaminated vegetables

 

Often touted for being highly nutritious, kale has joined the list of 11 other fruits and vegetables known to be "dirty," according to an analysis by the Environmental Working Group.

The watchdog group publishes its "Dirty Dozen" list annually, in which it ranks the 12 produce items that contain the highest amount of pesticide residues. The group analyzes data from the Department of Agriculture's regular produce testing to determine the list.

The Fear of Reaching Out 

 

The word, “Crazy” is thrown around quite a bit in our American society.

Hollywood movies depict depraved serial killers with a perceived mental illness, murdering scores of innocent (Typically neurotypical protagonists)

The entertainment industry seems to have quite a hold on many different labels of people, and people living with mental illness are not disqualified from that.

For instance, I was diagnosed with mental illness back in 2004 and it changed my life for the worst. I lack energy, I get depressed, I have trouble finding and keeping work, and the majority of my time goes into writing and keeping up with mental health appointments. But back to the point, I have never even hit anyone in my life, and I know scores of others living with mental illness who are the most compassionate people I’ve ever met. Hollywood has a way of playing on ignorance, and judging by comments left about films like these, our culture is very ignorant about mental health/mental illness.

Justices reject B&B owner who denied room to gay couple 

 

The U.S. Supreme Court on Monday left in place Hawaii court rulings that found a bed and breakfast owner violated the state's anti-discrimination law by refusing to rent a room to a lesbian couple.

The justices rejected an appeal from Aloha Bed & Breakfast owner Phyllis Young, who argued that she should be allowed to turn away gay couples because of her religious beliefs.

"Mrs. Young will rent a bedroom in her home to anyone, including those who are LGBT, but will not rent to any romantic partners other than a husband and wife," her attorney, James Hochberg, said in a statement. "This kind of governmental coercion should disturb every freedom-loving American no matter where you stand on marriage."

'Medieval' diseases flare as unsanitary living conditions proliferate 

 

Jennifer Millar keeps trash bags and hand sanitizer near her tent, and she regularly pours water mixed with hydrogen peroxide on the sidewalk nearby. Keeping herself and the patch of concrete she calls home clean is a top priority.

But this homeless encampment off a Hollywood freeway ramp is often littered with needles and trash, and soaked in urine. Rats occasionally scamper through, and Millar fears the consequences.

"I worry about all those diseases," said Millar, 43, who said she has been homeless most of her life.

Infectious diseases — some that ravaged populations in the Middle Ages — are resurging in California and around the country, and are hitting homeless populations especially hard.
