Pakistanis pray, resolve to fight terror at stricken school 21.12.2014 Yahoo: Top Stories
Thousands of Pakistanis Sunday mourned the 149 people -- mainly children -- massacred by the Taliban, as the government executed four more militants on death row despite an outcry by rights groups. After the attack Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif ended a six-year moratorium on the death penalty, reinstating it for terrorism-related cases with the first executions of two militants taking place on Friday. Pakistan has described Tuesday's bloody rampage as its own "mini 9/11", calling it a game-changer in the fight against extremism. Men, women and children from Peshawar and other cities visited the army-run institution to offer prayers for those killed in the country's deadliest-ever terror ...
Food Stamps Boost Childhood Health And Development, Study Says 21.12.2014 Politics on HuffingtonPost.com
By Tom Jacobs As Jon Stewart has noted , the compromise federal budget just passed by Congress and signed by President Obama is full of unpleasant surprises. Among them: In a Scrooge-like Christmas gift, it cuts $93 million from the Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants and Children, or WIC. So it’s both timely and ironic that a newly published study concludes WIC doesn’t just boost the health of young children and their moms: It also plays a positive role in kids’ cognitive development. “These findings suggest that WIC meaningfully contributes to children’s educational prospects,” Brown University sociologist Margot Jackson writes in the journal Social Science and Medicine. WIC is a large-scale government program serving 53 percent of all infants born in the United States. It provides vouchers that are redeemed at supermarkets for healthy, nutritious food such as fresh fruits and vegetables. Pregnant and breastfeeding women are eligible, as are children up their fifth birthday; parents also ...

In Memory of Danny Garvin, One of the Heroic Homeless LGBT Youths Who Fought in the Stonewall Uprising (PHOTOS) 20.12.2014 Politics on HuffingtonPost.com
A true hero of our LGBT movement died last week when Danny Garvin passed away after a struggle with hepatitis and cancer. Danny helped give birth to our liberation when he fought in the Stonewall uprising. He was there that first night and several nights after, fighting in the streets, battling the police who had raided the Stonewall Inn. At the time, Danny was a homeless youth. Many of the warriors who ignited our movement that night were homeless LGBT youths, who then, as now, made the West Village their home. Over the past few years I've had the honor and joy of getting to know Danny as he has volunteered to advocate for the homeless LGBT youths of the Ali Forney Center . Last year he wrote to me about why he had such empathy for our kids: I wish there had been something like the Ali Forney Center for me when I was on the streets. Maybe I would not have had to live so many nights of out lockers in Port Authority on 42nd St. Or sell myself for 8 dollars to have a bed to sleep to in and a place to ...
