    Missouri Attorney General Eric Schmitt (R) on Tuesday announced that he would be suing school districts that have continued to enforce mask mandates on students, claiming that "COVID-19 poses very little risk to children." “School districts have never been given the authority by the legislature to enact public health orders like mask mandates or quarantine orders - the recent Cole County judgment just further affirms that fact," Schmitt said in a statement. "The decision to mask children in school should rest solely with parents and families." In November, Cole County Circuit Court Judge Daniel R. Green ruled that only elected officials have the authority to issue mask mandates “Missouri statutes give elected legislative bodies, not individual health agency directors, authority to create county-wide laws related to communicable disease,” Greene said at the time, according to KWMU. In December, Schmitt, who is currently running for U.S. Senate, sent letters to public school districts to stop enforcing public health guidelines that were affected by Greene's ruling. "Some school districts dropped their mask mandates and quarantine orders, but others continue to defy the law, despite...

    Support is skyrocketing for the heartbroken family of 42-year-old Pennsylvania mother Erica Alicea, who suffered a sudden brain hemorrhage on Jan. 15 and was being taken off life support Wednesday. Originally thought to be a seizure, Alicea suffered the medical episode while waiting for her son to come out of a basketball game, according to a GoFundMe launched by Pierina Darquea. “Unfortunately events took a turn for the worse after discovering a brain hemorrhage in the occipital lobe from which she would not recover,” Darquea writes. “…on January 19, 2022, Erica Alicea, a beloved wife, mother, daughter, sister, aunt and friend will be taken off of life support. At the young age of 42, she will pass away with her family at her side.” More than $30,000 had been raised in less than 24 hours for the family of Alicea, who is remembered as a devoted mother to her two children, Janae, 17, and Isaiah, 16. “Erica was a light in anyone’s life she touched,” writes Darquea. “Being a mother was one of the most important things to her and...
    The EPA under the Biden administration has banned the use of a pesticide called chlorpyrifos on food.  Studies have linked chlorpyrifos to neurological and hormonal imbalances due to their toxicity. The rule is an important protection for entire ecosystems, namely pollinators like bees and other endangered species.  It also protects the farmworkers who work with crops and children who consume these foods.  Farmworkers are heavily exposed to pesticides and are, as a whole, and underprotected population.  Virginia Ruiz, the Director of Occupational and Environmental Health for Farmworker Justice, has explained that “Each year pesticide exposure poisons as many as 20,000 farmworkers.” Meanwhile, children who consume even low levels of chlorpyrifos on foods like grapes, strawberries, and broccoli may be subject to neurodevelopmental defects.  Michal Freedhoff, the EPA’s top official for chemical safety and pollution prevention, told the Washington Post that the EPA’s decision “comes after more than a decade of science in which it became pretty clear that there were potential neurodevelopmental effects on children that were being observed at lower levels than people had previously thought.”  The...

The center estimated that the poverty rate in December – when the final payments were delivered – was 12.1%. The evidence is clear, the report says, "The monthly child tax credit payments have buffered family finances amidst the continuing COVID-19 pandemic."  Democrats expanded the tax credit as part of their nearly $2 trillion Covid relief package last spring. Families received up to $250 a month for children ages 6 and older and $300 a month for younger children. Importantly, parents could get half of...

    Pope Francis has spoken about climate change, same-sex marriage, and the importance of taking care of our planet, but his latest speech has some animal activists and progressives up in arms. According to the Seattle Times, Francis spoke on Wednesday to a general audience at the Vatican, pointing out the global decline in birthrates, something he referred to as a “demographic winter.” During his speech, he also touched on his feelings about couples who prioritize having pets over children. Needless to say, he isn’t pleased with them. He said that people who have pets instead of children are “selfish” and exhibit a “denial of fatherhood or motherhood” that “diminishes us; it takes away our humanity. ” He added that dogs and cats “take the place of children,” creating a childless future. With such a controversial topic as having children, the reactions were naturally heated. Many people pointed out the hypocrisy of the Pope, himself, for speaking out against going childless when he doesn’t have children himself! What is selfish, is the inability to support those children because of...

    AT FIRST glance it looks like a typical school lunch box, complete with a sandwich, snacks and drink. But experts at Cancer Council NSW say that hidden somewhere in this photo is an “uncomfortable truth.” 2There is something 'concerning' about this lunchbox, but can you tell what it is?Credit: Cancer Council NSW 2Experts say that pre-packaged lunches are far more expensive and unhealthy and you should be making everything in your lunchboxCredit: Cancer Council NSW While this lunch box containing a ham sandwich, a fruit roll-up, a yoghurt, crisps and a fruit drink may not ring any immediate alarm bells, it actually contains twice the sugar and half the fibre of a lunch box that has a cheese and tomato sandwich, fruit, veggie sticks and yoghurt.

    São Paulo, Brazil (CNN)Last June, as Covid-19 cases were surging across Brazil, Camila Basto waited at a São Paulo hospital to find out what was wrong with her 9-year-old daughter, Manuela.

              by Laurel Duggan   Democrats were more than twice as likely as other voters to favor harsh government restrictions being placed on unvaccinated people’s lives, ranging from fines to loss of child custody, according to a recent poll conducted by Rasmussen Reports and the Heartland Institute. Forty-eight percent of Democratic voters said the government should be able to fine or imprison those who publicly question the COVID-19 vaccine’s efficacy, while only 27% of all voters supported the proposal, according to the poll results. Fines against those who refuse to take the vaccine were viewed favorably by 55% of Democratic voters and just 19% of Republicans, and 59% of Democrats favored a policy requiring unvaccinated people to stay inside their homes at all times, except for emergencies, the poll found. Seventy-nine percent of Republicans opposed a house arrest policy for unvaccinated people. Forty-five percent of Democratic respondents favored the government forcing people into “designated facilities” until they get the vaccine — a measure opposed by 71% of all voters. A government program using digital devices to track the movements of unvaccinated people and ensure that they are quarantined...
                 Newly inaugurated Gov. Glenn Youngkin (R) spoke about the future of Virginia Monday afternoon in his first address to the Virginia General Assembly. In his speech, Youngkin said the state is ready to be finished with the pandemic, noting that he was elected to “turn the page” on COVID-19. “Our fight against COVID-19 will move forward based on this simple principle: we will protect lives and livelihoods,” he said. “That means no more mandates and no more shut downs. As I said on Saturday, it means Virginia is open for business.” He did encourage Virginians to take the COVID-19 vaccine in order to help the state move forward. “Speaking to you as your governor, I’ll never tell you what you must do,” Youngkin said, promising never to mandate vaccines. “But speaking to you as a friend and a neighbor, I strongly encourage you to get the vaccine.” The Virginia Star reached out to the Virginia College of Emergency Physicians (VACEP), a group that has bemoaned overwhelmed hospitals, encouraged vaccines and supported mask mandates to see if it agreed with...
                 Thirteen parents from the Chesapeake school district are suing Governor Glenn Youngkin over his Executive Order Two which requires districts to allow parents to opt their children out of school mask mandates, no reason required. The lawsuit, filed Tuesday, says Youngkin’s order violates of separation of powers, since it violates SB 1303, which requires schools to comply with CDC mitigation strategies. “Executive Order Number Two purports to sweep aside masking mandates and other protections with little or no consideration of or respect for CDC guidance, actions taken by the Virginia General Assembly, or the powers vested in school boards,” the lawsuit states, according to a copy obtained by ABC7. EO Two is set to take effect on January 24. The plaintiffs want the Virginia Supreme Court to say the order is void and unenforceable, blocking Youngkin from taking action related to the order while the case proceeds. In 2021, Senator Siobhan Dunnavant (R-Henrico) introduced SB 1303 to require schools to remain open full-time. The language about mitigation strategies was added in during bipartisan negotiations to get the bill...

    Democrats abuse children with mask mandates, COVID-19 fear-mongering, racial agitation marketed as “critical race theory,” and “transgender” ideology, Dr. Ben Carson, retired pediatric neurosurgeon, former Housing and Urban Development secretary, and Secretary and founder of the American Cornerstone Institute, said on Tuesday’s edition of the Breitbart News Daily podcast with special guest host Jerome Hudson. Carson described Democrat hostility to standardized testing in the context of education — ostensibly out of opposition to “racism” — as degrading of ethnic and racial minorities framed by the left as oppressed by “systemic racism.” He said, “It’s really quite insulting when they say, ‘Well, let’s get rid of the standardized testing because minority students aren’t going to do well in that,’ and trying to be precise and accurate, that’s ‘acting white.’ What a bunch of garbage.” Masking children in schools amounts to “child abuse,” Carson held, remarking on how masks obstruct a central element of human communication — facial expressions  — and stultify social development and learning. “It’s actually child abuse what they’re doing,” he said. “Can you imagine what it’s like to...

    RICHMOND, Va. (AP) — Virginia’s new Republican governor was facing pushback from Democratic lawmakers, school districts and a group of parents who sued him Tuesday over an executive order that aims to create an opt-out for classroom mask mandates. The order issued Saturday and set to take effect Monday was among Glenn Youngkin’s first acts after he was sworn in as Virginia’s 74th governor. The move both fulfilled a campaign pledge and inserted Youngkin, a political newcomer working with a divided legislature, into a divisive issue that’s generated legal challenges in other states. Youngkin’s order said parents of any child in elementary or secondary schools or a school-based early childcare or educational program “may elect for their children not to be subject to any mask mandate.” In part because of a state law passed last year dealing with classrooms and pandemic policies, school districts in many of the state’s most populous localities have since told parents they planned to keep existing mask mandates in place, at least temporarily. The 2021 law says each Virginia school board is required to offer...

    MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Kids in child care may no longer have to quarantine, even if they’re exposed to COVID. The Minnesota Department of Human Services informed child care license holders last week that they no longer need to quarantine children or staff who are exposed to a positive case.

    Our folly comes at a high price. This issue gets the most attention when it comes to athletics. Names like Lia Thomas, Cece Telfer, and Fallon Fox are familiar to some sports fans. But the single most important job of one generation is to create the next generation. How can people who are confused about the definitions of “man” and “woman” make a new generation? What hope does a country have when its most educated and powerful people use terms like “birthing person” and the masses nod along in agreement like sheep? What is exceptional about a country in which headlines like “Transgender man gives birth after ‘Grindr one-night stand’ while transitioning” and “He gave birth. He breastfed. Now, he wants his son to see him as a man” run in major publications? How long does a civilization have before total collapse when the following quote is accepted as normal? “A month into pregnancy, Schade met his current husband, Jordan, 28. Eight months later, Ronan was born in October 2020. Now the pair are raising the child together,...
    CONCORD — A 52-year-old elementary school teacher was arrested last month after allegedly showing up to meet with a person he believed was a 13-year-old boy he met on a dating app, court records show. Darrin Michaels, of Concord, was arrested Dec. 9 in connection with a Contra Costa Sheriff and District Attorney investigation that involved the use of an undercover persona set up by a Sheriff’s detective in hopes of catching would-be child molesters. He has not yet been charged, but authorities intend to bring a case to the DA’s office once they are done mining his mobile phone, police said. Michaels — who was placed on administrative leave after his arrest — worked for the Mt. Diablo Unified School District, where he taught music at three elementary schools, the superintendent said in a statement to parents last month. The district’s website lists him as a teacher at Sequoia Elementary School in Pleasant Hill. According to an affidavit signed by DA Senior Inspector Darryl Holcombe, the detective used “age regression technology” to make himself look like a teen, then...
    Children are extremely unlikely to die from COVID-19, data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reveals. The agency's data shows that around 8.3 million children have contracted Covid and 841 have died since the pandemic began in March 2020. This means that children make up around 12 percent of cases and less than 0.1 percent of deaths in the U.S. The Census estimates that 22 percent of Americans are under the age of 18. Children under the age of five are especially unlikely to die, with 259 deaths being reported among the population that makes up six percent of Americans. It has long been known children do not suffer from Covid as badly as adults do. Previous studies have found that around half of cases among children are asymptomatic. Data from the CDC shows that children make up less than 0.1% of COVID-19 deaths in the U.S. since the pandemic first began in March 2020. Pictured: A young girl in Boston, Massachusetts, is tested for Covid on January 13 The CDC reports age mortality data on a...
    PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — There are growing concerns that not enough children are getting the COVID vaccine. Only 35% of children 10 to 14 have received at least one dose. And while most children hospitalized are not vaccinated, some have rare side effects from the vaccine.

A lesson one Philadelphia family is relieved to know. “I’m feeling pretty fine, feeling normal,” Jack Sepe said. Twelve-year-old Jack Sepe is getting ready to be released from CHOP. “It was like chest pain and it really felt like a burning and it really, really hurt,” Sepe said. The symptoms started the day after the Center City 7th grader received his Pfizer booster shot. “Whenever your kids say, there’s something wrong with your kid’s heart that’s very scary,” mother Laura Sepe said.

    PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — The Philadelphia School District is getting help to increase COVID-19 vaccination rates among its students. On Tuesday, it began a new program to make COVID-19 vaccine and booster shots more easily accessible. A partnership between the Black Doctors COVID-19 Consortium and the School District of Philadelphia began Tuesday with its first vaccination clinic inside Paul Robeson High School, starting a month-long initiative to make vaccines for students more accessible. READ MORE: Sharon Hill Police Officers Charged With Manslaughter In Fatal Shooting Of 8-Year-Old Fanta Bility“What we’re doing is actually taking vaccination clinics to where the people are,” said Monica Lewis, a spokesperson with the School District of Philadelphia. “We realize that there are certain communities in the city of Philadelphia where the vaccination rates are low and the positivity rates are high.” A strategic vaccination clinic tour is targeting underserved schools and communities throughout the city. “Today would just be for students, family, and staff members,” Lewis said. “Then, on Thursday, they’ll actually open it up to communities at large.” Renowned physician and head of the Black...
    Cuba began a new round of mass trials against accused participants in the July 11 national protests on Monday after concluding a trial of 21 people, including four children, last week. Ten of the 21 defendants in last week’s mass trial, staged in the eastern city of Holguín, are reportedly on hunger strike as they await their sentencing next month. Prosecutors charged all 21 with “sedition” for a variety of alleged “crimes” that ranged from being in the presence of a protest to alleged physical assault, corroborated only with testimonies from state security officers, according to family present at the trial. The sentences requested ranged from 15 to 30 years. Anti-communist protests erupted in nearly every municipality on the island on July 11, 2021, a result of years of civil society organizing and encouraging acts of peaceful civil disobedience. The protesters convened in town and city squares. A large majority of those whose arrests human rights groups confirmed had no prior experience with anti-communist opposition groups and many were children under 18. Modest estimates of the number of people who...
    CNN medical analyst Dr. Leana Wen said Tuesday on CNN’s “Inside Politics” that parents who have made the decision to vaccinate themselves should also “vaccinate their children.” Wen said, “We have failed our children. Throughout this entire pandemic, we have not prioritized our kids, and now we’re seeing the effect. We’re seeing the mental health impact as you mentioned, but we’re also seeing the impact on nutrition and physical activity. These studies are also showing that school lockdowns have an impact on increasing childhood obesity which also has implications for diabetes and heart disease for these kids growing later on in life as well.” Anchor John King said, “Sixty percent of the 16 to 17-year-olds are vaccinated, a little more than half 12 to 15. What do you think explains the lagging? It’s only 18%, a little more than that of children aged 5 to 11 who are eligible and not vaccinated. Why is that number still below 20%?” Wen said, “There’s been a fallacy that somehow children don’t get very ill from COVID-19, which we know is just not true. Yes,...
    A Connecticut school teacher has been arrested for allegedly leaving two children home alone while she traveled out of the state. Litchfield County resident Kerry Lyn Caviasca, age 36, of Watertown, was arrested on Saturday, Jan. 15, for leaving two children alone for two days and nights, said Detective Mark Conway, of the Watertown Police. According to Conway, the children are ages 9 and 11. She was charged with the risk of injury to a minor and released on a $5,000 bond. Caviasca teaches in New Haven County at West Side Middle School in the Waterbury school district. Waterbury Public Schools officials released a statement saying they had been informed of the allegation. "The alleged actions do not represent the values of our district," the district said. Caviasca is currently on leave.
    Supreme Court Justices Neil Gorsuch and Sonia Sotomayor are at odds over more COVID-19 protocols than their recent rulings on vaccine mandates. Sotomayor is attending weekly conferences and hearings remotely because Gorsuch, who sits next to her, has refused to wear a mask, NPR reported. Sotomayor reportedly said she does not feel safe in close proximity to people who are unmasked, and Chief Justice John Roberts had previously asked the other justices to mask up. Gorsuch was the only one to decline. Sotomayor has diabetes and is therefore in the high-risk category from exposure to COVID-19 and its variants. All of the justices have been vaccinated and received boosters. JUSTICE SOTOMAYOR PHONES IT IN Gorsuch has not worn a mask during arguments over the past week. Until recently, Sotomayor had been the only justice wearing a mask. On Jan. 7, lawyers and spectators were all required to wear masks during arguments on whether the Occupational Safety and Health Administration can force employers of at least 100 people to require vaccinations. Gorsuch was in the 6-3 majority blocking the mandate....
    MANCHESTER, N.H. (CBS) — The Governor of New Hampshire has written a letter to a Massachusetts judge to question how Adam Montgomery was granted custody of seven-year-old Harmony Montgomery. Harmony was reported missing from Manchester, NH in December 2021 but she hasn’t been seen since 2019. Harmony’s father, Adam Montgomery, has been charged with allegedly abusing her. Kayla Montgomery, Adam’s wife, is also facing charges, including theft for allegedly accepting the food stamp benefits for Harmony. READ MORE: Emirates Airline Suspending Flights To Boston, Some Other US Airports Over 5G Concerns“Adam Montgomery is a monstrous drug dealer with previous convictions including shooting someone in the head and a separate armed attack on two women in Massachusetts,” said the letter from Gov. Chris Sununu. “Why would the Massachusetts court choose to place custody of Harmony with this horrible individual? What caused such a fateful decision?” According to Sununu, in December 2018, the Massachusetts Department of Children and Families (MA DCF) requested that New Hampshire DCYF conduct a home study of Adam and Kayla Montgomery. But before it was completed “a court...

    Dave Ramsey is a straight shooter about money matters. That's part of the reason — combined with his wisdom forged with experience — that millions of people listen to him on the radio every week and read his books. In his newest book, "Baby Steps Millionaires," he lays out clear steps for anyone to take when it comes to getting out of debt and building wealth — including young people. "Money is not good and money is not bad. It's amoral," Ramsey, CEO of Ramsey Solutions, said to Fox News Digital in a telephone interview on Tuesday, Jan. 18. 2022. "It's like a brick. You can build a hospital with a brick — or you can throw it through a window."  DAVE RAMSEY ON WHY ‘GET RICH QUICK’ DOESN'T WORK Ramsey added, "But what money does do with adults and with kids — including with grown kids — is it magnifies who we are, the good and the bad. So if you raise great kids to become great adults — people of character, people of integrity, people of emotional and...

    WATERTOWN, Connecticut (WFSB) — A Connecticut school teacher has been suspended from her job after being arrested for allegedly leaving two children home alone while she traveled out of state. The 36-year-old woman was arrested Saturday, police in Watertown said. The children, ages 9 and 11, were unsupervised at her home for two days and two nights, the police said. They did not specify where the woman had gone or what her relationship is to the children, except that she is “responsible” for them. She was charged with two counts each of risk of injury to a minor and second-degree reckless endangerment — both felonies. Her first court date is Jan. 25. School officials confirmed the woman is a teacher for Waterbury Public Schools and that she has been placed on leave while the district conducts an investigation. The school district’s website indicates she is an eighth-grade social studies teacher. Waterbury Public Schools released a statement: “Waterbury Public Schools has been informed of a pending allegation regarding a Waterbury Public School staff member. The alleged actions do not represent the...
    (CNN)On Friday, we witnessed an unusually ugly spectacle at the US Supreme Court. Neil Gorsuch sat on the bench maskless (as he also has on other occasions), while his colleague Sonia Sotomayor -- who as a diabetic is at higher risk of severe disease if she contracts Covid-19 -- participated remotely from her chambers. A Court spokesperson didn't respond to a question from The Washington Post about the incident. But it would make sense for Sotomayor, who usually sits next to Gorsuch and has reportedly expressed concerns about contracting Covid-19, to be uncomfortable that he wasn't wearing a mask. The episode was a shocking display of male entitlement. Kara Alaimo And after Virginia Gov. Glenn Youngkin was inaugurated on Saturday, one of his first actions was to repeal school mask mandates, a decision that was met with outrage by many and pledges by some school districts not to obey the order. But, if it stands, the decision will help ensure that a generation of children in Virginia have the opportunity to follow Gorsuch's lead in displaying gross disregard for...
    WINFIELD, Ill. (WLS) -- There's a common childhood illness that is developing in some children who get COVID-19.Croup is the culprit here. It can be concerning, but doctors say you don't have to go to the hospital the moment you hear that barking cough.Dr. Alin Abraham, a pediatrician with Northwestern Medicine, Central DuPage Hospital, joined ABC7 Tuesday morning to talk about what croup is, how long it lasts, how to ease symptoms for children and when a child should visit the doctor.Dr. Abraham also talked about the link between omicron and croup. The omicron variant tends to stay in the upper airways, producing more upper respiratory symptoms like a runny or congested nose, cough, or sore throat.
    World Health Organization (WHO) Chief Scientist Soumya Swaminathan attends a press conference organised by the Geneva Association of United Nations Correspondents (ACANU) amid the COVID-19 outbreak, caused by the novel coronavirus, at the WHO headquarters in Geneva Switzerland July 3, 2020.Fabrice Coffrini | Reuters WHO Chief Scientist Dr. Soumya Swaminathan said Tuesday "there's no evidence right now" that suggests healthy children and adolescents need booster shots to supplement their Covid-19 vaccinations. Swaminathan said the agency's advisory group, called Sage, or the Strategic Advisory Group of Experts on Immunization, will meet later this week to consider how countries should think about giving booster shots. "The aim is to protect the most vulnerable, to protect those at highest risk of severe disease and dying, those are our elderly population, immunocompromised with underlying conditions and also health care workers," Swaminathan said. Speaking during a World Health Organization media briefing, Swaminathan's comments come roughly two weeks after the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention approved booster shots for adolescents aged 12 to 17 amid the current surge in coronavirus cases due to the...
