In a County With More Babies Than Any Other, Childcare Comes at a Cost -- and Not Just for Parents 19.1.2017
In California, childcare for infants costs as much as tuition in the University of California (UC) system, according to  new data  from the Lucile Packard Foundation of Children's Health. In 2014, parents of infants in California spent an average of more than $13,300 on childcare. That year, UC tuition and fees were just over $13,200.  At the national level, all eyes are on college affordability. But the lack of affordable early childhood options has even more dire long-term consequences.  Achievement gaps start early. According to a report this year from the  Economic Policy Institute , children from more affluent backgrounds tend to perform better than lower-income children in reading and math as early as kindergarten. And that gap then continues throughout the rest of the kids' schooling.  "For most families, if you're talking about full-time care for an infant or toddler, those costs certainly rival, if not exceed in many cases, higher education costs," says Ted Lempert, the president of Children Now ...

From the GREAT STATE OF MAINE… Bigly Blast from the Past Trackdown was a TV series that ran from 1957-59 , and took place in the fictional Texas town of Porter following the Civil War.

Letter: Enough of the anti-porn piety 16.1.2017 Salt Lake Tribune
The tireless, moral crusade against pornography is unfounded, unethical and unconstitutional. From Gov. Gary Herbert’s declaration that porn is a “public health crisis” to Sen. Todd Weiler’s recently proposed bill to punish porn-hosting sites, individual autonomy is under attack. Every time you reinforce the belief that pornography is inherently evil, you also reinforce rape culture and the idea that sex workers are subhuman. If your concern is truly for the well-being of women, consider: 1 • F... <iframe src="" height="1" width="1" > </frame>

The day will begin with a wreath-laying ceremony at the Arlington National Cemetery followed by several celebrations, including galas and inaugural balls, throughout the weekend.
