In addition to other strategies, most of which seem to be in President Obama's plan, the AMA and 51 other medical organizations have said that "renewing and strengthening the assault weapons ban, including banning high-capacity magazines, would be a step in the right direction."

As a Senator, you would think that Dr. John Barrasso would agree with them.

Carol, if you'd like more info on the subject of person first vs. identity first from the perspective of those who are ON the spectrum, here's a great link, which includes even more links. Hope this clarifies things, and why the Dr. uses the word "autistic". https://autisticadvocacy.org/home/about-asan/identity-first-language/

Also remember that "children can cope more effectively with a disaster when they feel they understand what is happening and what they can do to help protect themselves, family, and friends. Provide basic information to help them understand, without providing unnecessary details that may only alarm them."

It's World Polio Day. Upload a photo of yourself to Rotary's polio eradication website, endpolionow.org, to be added into the constantly expanding commercial.

Did the Facebook organ donor thing, although I'm pretty sure I have it in my living will and on my drivers license.

Gave me the idea for Facebook to show your/our vaccination status too. It may boost vaccination levels, which would be good with the increasing rates of measles and pertussis we are seeing these days.

And you can actually already do it. Add Life Event > Health & Wellness > Other Life Event... => Tdap #vaccines to #facebook if you are protected. You can add other vaccines too or add your kids' vaccines when they get them.

Why are so many parents still not vaccinating their kids?

An IOM report confirms what most pediatricians and parents already knew to be true - the report did not find any evidence "that the U.S. childhood immunization schedule is linked to autoimmune diseases, asthma, hypersensitivity, seizures, child developmental disorders, learning or developmental disorders, or attention deficit or disruptive disorders." #vaccines

The theory of vaccination is based on an incomplete understanding of how the immune system works. A vaccine can sometimes create antibodies, but that in itself does nothing for immunity. It's the macrophage and dendritic cells that do the work, but vaccines actually reduce such cellular immunity, and this explains why so many vaccinated people actually come down with the disease vaccinated for. In China, where there is a 99% vaccination rate for measles, measles cases continue to occur with just as much frequency as before. Once we realize that vaccines simply do not work, and never have worked, we will question why we would put our children at risk from the very common adverse events. Vaccines were not the cause of the decline in smallpox and polio. It's a long story, but Dr Suzanne Humphries, MD spent 4 years researching that question and put her findings in a book called Dissolving Illusions. And, to see the massive number of vaccine-injured children which mainstream media does not report, read some of these parental reports: vaccine-injury.info/about.cfm

World Prematurity Day is a great time to tell the lame-duck Congress to get the PREEMIE Reauthorization Act passed.

New subway and hospital poster campaign in NYC illustrates the benefits of breastfeeding. What is your community doing to support breastfeeding mothers?

You will feel a little stronger too after watching this video of the kids and staff on the hematology and oncology ward (cancer) at Seattle Childrens Hospital sing Kelly Clarkson's "Stronger."

My parents have lived in South Texas for over 25 years and don't remember having hail storms. The occasional hurricane - sure, but not hail, and certainly not hail that covers the ground in "drifts," like snow. They have had two of these hail storms in the past month. Weird.

We're getting hail in Nashville this year too. We've had no hail in the previous 3 years. Go figure.

Going for Thai food used to be one of the few things that I still felt like I needed to drive to Dallas while living in the Lake Ray Hubbard area. Not since finding Koung Thai though. They have great food and wonderful service and the owner has even been teaching my boys a few Thai words and phrases. It is definitely the place to go for some authentic food, great service, and a fun time.
