  • Study finds air pollution could be hurting children's memory

    4 Mar 2015 | 6:29 am
    Air pollution isn't just bad for your lungs — it could also be harming children's brain development. A new study, published in the journal PLOS Medicine, found that the memories of children who live in high-pollution areas develop more slowly. The researchers spent a year studying the working memory and inattentiveness of 2,700 children aged seven to 10 at 29 schools in Spain. They found that air pollution hurt the cognitive development of children whose schools were in high-pollution areas. Children in low-pollution schools improved their working memory by 11.5 percent over the course of a…
  • Ben Carson: Prison proves homosexuality is a choice because people go in straight and come out gay

    4 Mar 2015 | 6:12 am
    Ben Carson's proto-presidential campaign is off to a bizarre start after the neurosurgeon claimed Wednesday that homosexuality is "absolutely" a choice. His proof: Straight prisoners who come out of jail gay. "A lot of people who go into prison go into prison straight, and when they come out they're gay," he said in an interview with CNN. "So, did something happen while they were in there? Ask yourself that question." Leading medical associations agree that, contrary to Carson's claim, sexual orientation is not a choice. Carson on Tuesday launched an exploratory committee to consider a…
  • The Academy is thinking about switching back to 5 Best Picture nominees

    Bad news, filmmakers: a Best Picture nomination might soon be much harder to achieve. According to The Hollywood Reporter, a "significant fraction" of Academy voters are pushing for the organization to switch back to 5 Best Picture nominees, reversing an expansion of the field that was made just six years ago. In the immediate aftermath of the perceived snubbing of 2008's The Dark Knight, the expansion which was widely regarded as an attempt to get more popular movies nominated for Best Picture — but some Academy members reportedly feel that nominating more films has diluted the value…
  • Maryland 'free range' parents charged with child neglect for letting kids walk home alone

    4 Mar 2015 | 6:09 am
    Danielle Meitiv is the new face of "free-range parenting." Last December, police in Silver Spring, Maryland, picked up Meitiv's two children — Rafi, 10, and Dvora, 6 — as they were walking home alone from a park a mile away from the Meitiv house. On Feb. 20, Montgomery County Child Protective Service informed the Meitivs that they had been found responsible for "unsubstantiated" child neglect. The parents went public this week, after consulting a lawyer. The finding, which Danielle and Alexander Meitiv are appealing, typically meaning that CPS hasn't ruled out neglect but couldn't…

    Air pollution isn't just bad for your lungs — it could also be harming children's brain development. A new study, published in the journal PLOS Medicine, found that the memories of children who live in high-pollution areas develop more slowly. The researchers spent a year studying the working memory and inattentiveness of 2,700 children aged seven to 10 at 29 schools in Spain. They found that air pollution hurt the cognitive development of children whose schools were in high-pollution areas. Children in low-pollution schools improved their working memory by 11.5 percent over the course of a…
  • Ben Carson: Prison proves homosexuality is a choice because people go in straight and come out gay

    4 Mar 2015 | 6:12 am
    Ben Carson's proto-presidential campaign is off to a bizarre start after the neurosurgeon claimed Wednesday that homosexuality is "absolutely" a choice. His proof: Straight prisoners who come out of jail gay. "A lot of people who go into prison go into prison straight, and when they come out they're gay," he said in an interview with CNN. "So, did something happen while they were in there? Ask yourself that question." Leading medical associations agree that, contrary to Carson's claim, sexual orientation is not a choice. Carson on Tuesday launched an exploratory committee to consider a…
  • The Academy is thinking about switching back to 5 Best Picture nominees

    4 Mar 2015 | 6:11 am
    Bad news, filmmakers: a Best Picture nomination might soon be much harder to achieve. According to The Hollywood Reporter, a "significant fraction" of Academy voters are pushing for the organization to switch back to 5 Best Picture nominees, reversing an expansion of the field that was made just six years ago. In the immediate aftermath of the perceived snubbing of 2008's The Dark Knight, the expansion which was widely regarded as an attempt to get more popular movies nominated for Best Picture — but some Academy members reportedly feel that nominating more films has diluted the value…
  • Maryland 'free range' parents charged with child neglect for letting kids walk home alone

    4 Mar 2015 | 6:09 am
    Danielle Meitiv is the new face of "free-range parenting." Last December, police in Silver Spring, Maryland, picked up Meitiv's two children — Rafi, 10, and Dvora, 6 — as they were walking home alone from a park a mile away from the Meitiv house. On Feb. 20, Montgomery County Child Protective Service informed the Meitivs that they had been found responsible for "unsubstantiated" child neglect. The parents went public this week, after consulting a lawyer. The finding, which Danielle and Alexander Meitiv are appealing, typically meaning that CPS hasn't ruled out neglect but couldn't…

  • U.S., Iran announce 'some progress' on nuclear deal after marathon negotiations

    4 Mar 2015 | 6:38 am
    One day after Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu warned that ongoing nuclear negotiations would "pave Iran's path" to a bomb, the U.S. and Tehran announced progress toward a final deal. "We have made some progress but have a lot of challenges yet ahead," a State Department official said, according to Reuters, following three days of talks in Switzerland. The U.S., Iran, and world powers hope to establish a framework deal by the end of the month, which would be followed by a comprehensive agreement by June 30.

  • Ben Carson: Prison proves homosexuality is a choice because people go in straight and come out gay

    4 Mar 2015 | 6:12 am
    Ben Carson's proto-presidential campaign is off to a bizarre start after the neurosurgeon claimed Wednesday that homosexuality is "absolutely" a choice. His proof: Straight prisoners who come out of jail gay. "A lot of people who go into prison go into prison straight, and when they come out they're gay," he said in an interview with CNN. "So, did something happen while they were in there? Ask yourself that question." Leading medical associations agree that, contrary to Carson's claim, sexual orientation is not a choice. Carson on Tuesday launched an exploratory committee to consider a…
  • The Academy is thinking about switching back to 5 Best Picture nominees

    4 Mar 2015 | 6:11 am
    Bad news, filmmakers: a Best Picture nomination might soon be much harder to achieve. According to The Hollywood Reporter, a "significant fraction" of Academy voters are pushing for the organization to switch back to 5 Best Picture nominees, reversing an expansion of the field that was made just six years ago. In the immediate aftermath of the perceived snubbing of 2008's The Dark Knight, the expansion which was widely regarded as an attempt to get more popular movies nominated for Best Picture — but some Academy members reportedly feel that nominating more films has diluted the value…
  • Maryland 'free range' parents charged with child neglect for letting kids walk home alone

    4 Mar 2015 | 6:09 am
    Danielle Meitiv is the new face of "free-range parenting." Last December, police in Silver Spring, Maryland, picked up Meitiv's two children — Rafi, 10, and Dvora, 6 — as they were walking home alone from a park a mile away from the Meitiv house. On Feb. 20, Montgomery County Child Protective Service informed the Meitivs that they had been found responsible for "unsubstantiated" child neglect. The parents went public this week, after consulting a lawyer. The finding, which Danielle and Alexander Meitiv are appealing, typically meaning that CPS hasn't ruled out neglect but couldn't…

  • U.S., Iran announce 'some progress' on nuclear deal after marathon negotiations

    4 Mar 2015 | 6:38 am
    One day after Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu warned that ongoing nuclear negotiations would "pave Iran's path" to a bomb, the U.S. and Tehran announced progress toward a final deal. "We have made some progress but have a lot of challenges yet ahead," a State Department official said, according to Reuters, following three days of talks in Switzerland. The U.S., Iran, and world powers hope to establish a framework deal by the end of the month, which would be followed by a comprehensive agreement by June 30.
  • Study finds air pollution could be hurting children's memory

    4 Mar 2015 | 6:29 am
    Air pollution isn't just bad for your lungs — it could also be harming children's brain development. A new study, published in the journal PLOS Medicine, found that the memories of children who live in high-pollution areas develop more slowly. The researchers spent a year studying the working memory and inattentiveness of 2,700 children aged seven to 10 at 29 schools in Spain. They found that air pollution hurt the cognitive development of children whose schools were in high-pollution areas. Children in low-pollution schools improved their working memory by 11.5 percent over the course of a…

"So, did something happen while they were in there? Ask yourself that question." Leading medical associations agree that, contrary to Carson's claim, sexual orientation is not a choice. Carson on Tuesday launched an exploratory committee to consider a…
  • The Academy is thinking about switching back to 5 Best Picture nominees

    4 Mar 2015 | 6:11 am
    Bad news, filmmakers: a Best Picture nomination might soon be much harder to achieve. According to The Hollywood Reporter, a "significant fraction" of Academy voters are pushing for the organization to switch back to 5 Best Picture nominees, reversing an expansion of the field that was made just six years ago. In the immediate aftermath of the perceived snubbing of 2008's The Dark Knight, the expansion which was widely regarded as an attempt to get more popular movies nominated for Best Picture — but some Academy members reportedly feel that nominating more films has diluted the value…
  • Maryland 'free range' parents charged with child neglect for letting kids walk home alone

    4 Mar 2015 | 6:09 am
    Danielle Meitiv is the new face of "free-range parenting." Last December, police in Silver Spring, Maryland, picked up Meitiv's two children — Rafi, 10, and Dvora, 6 — as they were walking home alone from a park a mile away from the Meitiv house. On Feb. 20, Montgomery County Child Protective Service informed the Meitivs that they had been found responsible for "unsubstantiated" child neglect. The parents went public this week, after consulting a lawyer. The finding, which Danielle and Alexander Meitiv are appealing, typically meaning that CPS hasn't ruled out neglect but couldn't…

  • U.S., Iran announce 'some progress' on nuclear deal after marathon negotiations

    4 Mar 2015 | 6:38 am
    One day after Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu warned that ongoing nuclear negotiations would "pave Iran's path" to a bomb, the U.S. and Tehran announced progress toward a final deal. "We have made some progress but have a lot of challenges yet ahead," a State Department official said, according to Reuters, following three days of talks in Switzerland.

  • Study finds air pollution could be hurting children's memory

    4 Mar 2015 | 6:29 am
    Air pollution isn't just bad for your lungs — it could also be harming children's brain development. A new study, published in the journal PLOS Medicine, found that the memories of children who live in high-pollution areas develop more slowly. The researchers spent a year studying the working memory and inattentiveness of 2,700 children aged seven to 10 at 29 schools in Spain. They found that air pollution hurt the cognitive development of children whose schools were in high-pollution areas. Children in low-pollution schools improved their working memory by 11.5 percent over the course of a…

    Bad news, filmmakers: a Best Picture nomination might soon be much harder to achieve. According to The Hollywood Reporter, a "significant fraction" of Academy voters are pushing for the organization to switch back to 5 Best Picture nominees, reversing an expansion of the field that was made just six years ago. In the immediate aftermath of the perceived snubbing of 2008's The Dark Knight, the expansion which was widely regarded as an attempt to get more popular movies nominated for Best Picture — but some Academy members reportedly feel that nominating more films has diluted the value…
  • Maryland 'free range' parents charged with child neglect for letting kids walk home alone

    4 Mar 2015 | 6:09 am
    Danielle Meitiv is the new face of "free-range parenting." Last December, police in Silver Spring, Maryland, picked up Meitiv's two children — Rafi, 10, and Dvora, 6 — as they were walking home alone from a park a mile away from the Meitiv house. On Feb. 20, Montgomery County Child Protective Service informed the Meitivs that they had been found responsible for "unsubstantiated" child neglect. The parents went public this week, after consulting a lawyer. The finding, which Danielle and Alexander Meitiv are appealing, typically meaning that CPS hasn't ruled out neglect but couldn't…

  • U.S., Iran announce 'some progress' on nuclear deal after marathon negotiations

    4 Mar 2015 | 6:38 am
    One day after Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu warned that ongoing nuclear negotiations would "pave Iran's path" to a bomb, the U.S. and Tehran announced progress toward a final deal. "We have made some progress but have a lot of challenges yet ahead," a State Department official said, according to Reuters, following three days of talks in Switzerland. The U.S., Iran, and world powers hope to establish a framework deal by the end of the month, which would be followed by a comprehensive agreement by June 30.
  • Study finds air pollution could be hurting children's memory

    4 Mar 2015 | 6:29 am
    Air pollution isn't just bad for your lungs — it could also be harming children's brain development. A new study, published in the journal PLOS Medicine, found that the memories of children who live in high-pollution areas develop more slowly. The researchers spent a year studying the working memory and inattentiveness of 2,700 children aged seven to 10 at 29 schools in Spain. They found that air pollution hurt the cognitive development of children whose schools were in high-pollution areas. Children in low-pollution schools improved their working memory by 11.5 percent over the course of a…
  • Ben Carson: Prison proves homosexuality is a choice because people go in straight and come out gay

    4 Mar 2015 | 6:12 am
    Ben Carson's proto-presidential campaign is off to a bizarre start after the neurosurgeon claimed Wednesday that homosexuality is "absolutely" a choice. His proof: Straight prisoners who come out of jail gay. "A lot of people who go into prison go into prison straight, and when they come out they're gay," he said in an interview with CNN. "So, did something happen while they were in there? Ask yourself that question." Leading medical associations agree that, contrary to Carson's claim, sexual orientation is not a choice. Carson on Tuesday launched an exploratory committee to consider a…

    4 Mar 2015 | 6:09 am
    Danielle Meitiv is the new face of "free-range parenting." Last December, police in Silver Spring, Maryland, picked up Meitiv's two children — Rafi, 10, and Dvora, 6 — as they were walking home alone from a park a mile away from the Meitiv house. On Feb. 20, Montgomery County Child Protective Service informed the Meitivs that they had been found responsible for "unsubstantiated" child neglect. The parents went public this week, after consulting a lawyer. The finding, which Danielle and Alexander Meitiv are appealing, typically meaning that CPS hasn't ruled out neglect but couldn't…

  • U.S., Iran announce 'some progress' on nuclear deal after marathon negotiations

    4 Mar 2015 | 6:38 am
    One day after Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu warned that ongoing nuclear negotiations would "pave Iran's path" to a bomb, the U.S. and Tehran announced progress toward a final deal. "We have made some progress but have a lot of challenges yet ahead," a State Department official said, according to Reuters, following three days of talks in Switzerland. The U.S., Iran, and world powers hope to establish a framework deal by the end of the month, which would be followed by a comprehensive agreement by June 30.
  • Study finds air pollution could be hurting children's memory

    4 Mar 2015 | 6:29 am
    Air pollution isn't just bad for your lungs — it could also be harming children's brain development. A new study, published in the journal PLOS Medicine, found that the memories of children who live in high-pollution areas develop more slowly. The researchers spent a year studying the working memory and inattentiveness of 2,700 children aged seven to 10 at 29 schools in Spain. They found that air pollution hurt the cognitive development of children whose schools were in high-pollution areas. Children in low-pollution schools improved their working memory by 11.5 percent over the course of a…
  • Ben Carson: Prison proves homosexuality is a choice because people go in straight and come out gay

    4 Mar 2015 | 6:12 am
    Ben Carson's proto-presidential campaign is off to a bizarre start after the neurosurgeon claimed Wednesday that homosexuality is "absolutely" a choice. His proof: Straight prisoners who come out of jail gay. "A lot of people who go into prison go into prison straight, and when they come out they're gay," he said in an interview with CNN. "So, did something happen while they were in there? Ask yourself that question." Leading medical associations agree that, contrary to Carson's claim, sexual orientation is not a choice. Carson on Tuesday launched an exploratory committee to consider a…

    Bad news, filmmakers: a Best Picture nomination might soon be much harder to achieve. According to The Hollywood Reporter, a "significant fraction" of Academy voters are pushing for the organization to switch back to 5 Best Picture nominees, reversing an expansion of the field that was made just six years ago.

  • U.S., Iran announce 'some progress' on nuclear deal after marathon negotiations

    4 Mar 2015 | 6:38 am
    One day after Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu warned that ongoing nuclear negotiations would "pave Iran's path" to a bomb, the U.S. and Tehran announced progress toward a final deal. "We have made some progress but have a lot of challenges yet ahead," a State Department official said, according to Reuters, following three days of talks in Switzerland. The U.S., Iran, and world powers hope to establish a framework deal by the end of the month, which would be followed by a comprehensive agreement by June 30.
  • Study finds air pollution could be hurting children's memory

    4 Mar 2015 | 6:29 am
    Air pollution isn't just bad for your lungs — it could also be harming children's brain development. A new study, published in the journal PLOS Medicine, found that the memories of children who live in high-pollution areas develop more slowly. The researchers spent a year studying the working memory and inattentiveness of 2,700 children aged seven to 10 at 29 schools in Spain. They found that air pollution hurt the cognitive development of children whose schools were in high-pollution areas. Children in low-pollution schools improved their working memory by 11.5 percent over the course of a…
  • Ben Carson: Prison proves homosexuality is a choice because people go in straight and come out gay

    4 Mar 2015 | 6:12 am
    Ben Carson's proto-presidential campaign is off to a bizarre start after the neurosurgeon claimed Wednesday that homosexuality is "absolutely" a choice. His proof: Straight prisoners who come out of jail gay. "A lot of people who go into prison go into prison straight, and when they come out they're gay," he said in an interview with CNN. "So, did something happen while they were in there? Ask yourself that question." Leading medical associations agree that, contrary to Carson's claim, sexual orientation is not a choice. Carson on Tuesday launched an exploratory committee to consider a…
  • The Academy is thinking about switching back to 5 Best Picture nominees

    4 Mar 2015 | 6:11 am
    Bad news, filmmakers: a Best Picture nomination might soon be much harder to achieve. According to The Hollywood Reporter, a "significant fraction" of Academy voters are pushing for the organization to switch back to 5 Best Picture nominees, reversing an expansion of the field that was made just six years ago. In the immediate aftermath of the perceived snubbing of 2008's The Dark Knight, the expansion which was widely regarded as an attempt to get more popular movies nominated for Best Picture — but some Academy members reportedly feel that nominating more films has diluted the value…

    4 Mar 2015 | 6:38 am
    One day after Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu warned that ongoing nuclear negotiations would "pave Iran's path" to a bomb, the U.S. and Tehran announced progress toward a final deal. "We have made some progress but have a lot of challenges yet ahead," a State Department official said, according to Reuters, following three days of talks in Switzerland. The U.S., Iran, and world powers hope to establish a framework deal by the end of the month, which would be followed by a comprehensive agreement by June 30.
  • Study finds air pollution could be hurting children's memory

    4 Mar 2015 | 6:29 am
    Air pollution isn't just bad for your lungs — it could also be harming children's brain development. A new study, published in the journal PLOS Medicine, found that the memories of children who live in high-pollution areas develop more slowly. The researchers spent a year studying the working memory and inattentiveness of 2,700 children aged seven to 10 at 29 schools in Spain. They found that air pollution hurt the cognitive development of children whose schools were in high-pollution areas. Children in low-pollution schools improved their working memory by 11.5 percent over the course of a…
  • Ben Carson: Prison proves homosexuality is a choice because people go in straight and come out gay

    4 Mar 2015 | 6:12 am
    Ben Carson's proto-presidential campaign is off to a bizarre start after the neurosurgeon claimed Wednesday that homosexuality is "absolutely" a choice. His proof: Straight prisoners who come out of jail gay. "A lot of people who go into prison go into prison straight, and when they come out they're gay," he said in an interview with CNN. "So, did something happen while they were in there? Ask yourself that question." Leading medical associations agree that, contrary to Carson's claim, sexual orientation is not a choice. Carson on Tuesday launched an exploratory committee to consider a…
  • The Academy is thinking about switching back to 5 Best Picture nominees

    4 Mar 2015 | 6:11 am
    Bad news, filmmakers: a Best Picture nomination might soon be much harder to achieve. According to The Hollywood Reporter, a "significant fraction" of Academy voters are pushing for the organization to switch back to 5 Best Picture nominees, reversing an expansion of the field that was made just six years ago. In the immediate aftermath of the perceived snubbing of 2008's The Dark Knight, the expansion which was widely regarded as an attempt to get more popular movies nominated for Best Picture — but some Academy members reportedly feel that nominating more films has diluted the value…
  • Maryland 'free range' parents charged with child neglect for letting kids walk home alone

    4 Mar 2015 | 6:09 am
    Danielle Meitiv is the new face of "free-range parenting." Last December, police in Silver Spring, Maryland, picked up Meitiv's two children — Rafi, 10, and Dvora, 6 — as they were walking home alone from a park a mile away from the Meitiv house. On Feb. 20, Montgomery County Child Protective Service informed the Meitivs that they had been found responsible for "unsubstantiated" child neglect. The parents went public this week, after consulting a lawyer. The finding, which Danielle and Alexander Meitiv are appealing, typically meaning that CPS hasn't ruled out neglect but couldn't…

    4 Mar 2015 | 6:29 am
    Air pollution isn't just bad for your lungs — it could also be harming children's brain development. A new study, published in the journal PLOS Medicine, found that the memories of children who live in high-pollution areas develop more slowly. The researchers spent a year studying the working memory and inattentiveness of 2,700 children aged seven to 10 at 29 schools in Spain. They found that air pollution hurt the cognitive development of children whose schools were in high-pollution areas. Children in low-pollution schools improved their working memory by 11.5 percent over the course of a…
  • Ben Carson: Prison proves homosexuality is a choice because people go in straight and come out gay

    4 Mar 2015 | 6:12 am
    Ben Carson's proto-presidential campaign is off to a bizarre start after the neurosurgeon claimed Wednesday that homosexuality is "absolutely" a choice. His proof: Straight prisoners who come out of jail gay. "A lot of people who go into prison go into prison straight, and when they come out they're gay," he said in an interview with CNN. "So, did something happen while they were in there? Ask yourself that question." Leading medical associations agree that, contrary to Carson's claim, sexual orientation is not a choice. Carson on Tuesday launched an exploratory committee to consider a…
  • The Academy is thinking about switching back to 5 Best Picture nominees

    4 Mar 2015 | 6:11 am
    Bad news, filmmakers: a Best Picture nomination might soon be much harder to achieve. According to The Hollywood Reporter, a "significant fraction" of Academy voters are pushing for the organization to switch back to 5 Best Picture nominees, reversing an expansion of the field that was made just six years ago. In the immediate aftermath of the perceived snubbing of 2008's The Dark Knight, the expansion which was widely regarded as an attempt to get more popular movies nominated for Best Picture — but some Academy members reportedly feel that nominating more films has diluted the value…
  • Maryland 'free range' parents charged with child neglect for letting kids walk home alone

    4 Mar 2015 | 6:09 am
    Danielle Meitiv is the new face of "free-range parenting." Last December, police in Silver Spring, Maryland, picked up Meitiv's two children — Rafi, 10, and Dvora, 6 — as they were walking home alone from a park a mile away from the Meitiv house. On Feb. 20, Montgomery County Child Protective Service informed the Meitivs that they had been found responsible for "unsubstantiated" child neglect. The parents went public this week, after consulting a lawyer. The finding, which Danielle and Alexander Meitiv are appealing, typically meaning that CPS hasn't ruled out neglect but couldn't…

  • Ben Carson: Prison proves homosexuality is a choice because people go in straight and come out gay

    4 Mar 2015 | 6:12 am
    Ben Carson's proto-presidential campaign is off to a bizarre start after the neurosurgeon claimed Wednesday that homosexuality is "absolutely" a choice. His proof: Straight prisoners who come out of jail gay. "A lot of people who go into prison go into prison straight, and when they come out they're gay," he said in an interview with CNN. "So, did something happen while they were in there? Ask yourself that question." Leading medical associations agree that, contrary to Carson's claim, sexual orientation is not a choice. Carson on Tuesday launched an exploratory committee to consider a…

  • Maryland 'free range' parents charged with child neglect for letting kids walk home alone

    4 Mar 2015 | 6:09 am
    Danielle Meitiv is the new face of "free-range parenting." Last December, police in Silver Spring, Maryland, picked up Meitiv's two children — Rafi, 10, and Dvora, 6 — as they were walking home alone from a park a mile away from the Meitiv house. On Feb. 20, Montgomery County Child Protective Service informed the Meitivs that they had been found responsible for "unsubstantiated" child neglect. The parents went public this week, after consulting a lawyer. The finding, which Danielle and Alexander Meitiv are appealing, typically meaning that CPS hasn't ruled out neglect but couldn't…

  • U.S., Iran announce 'some progress' on nuclear deal after marathon negotiations

    4 Mar 2015 | 6:38 am
    One day after Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu warned that ongoing nuclear negotiations would "pave Iran's path" to a bomb, the U.S. and Tehran announced progress toward a final deal. "We have made some progress but have a lot of challenges yet ahead," a State Department official said, according to Reuters, following three days of talks in Switzerland.

His proof: Straight prisoners who come out of jail gay. "A lot of people who go into prison go into prison straight, and when they come out they're gay," he said in an interview with CNN. "So, did something happen while they were in there? Ask yourself that question." Leading medical associations agree that, contrary to Carson's claim, sexual orientation is not a choice. Carson on Tuesday launched an exploratory committee to consider a…
  • The Academy is thinking about switching back to 5 Best Picture nominees

    4 Mar 2015 | 6:11 am
    Bad news, filmmakers: a Best Picture nomination might soon be much harder to achieve. According to The Hollywood Reporter, a "significant fraction" of Academy voters are pushing for the organization to switch back to 5 Best Picture nominees, reversing an expansion of the field that was made just six years ago. In the immediate aftermath of the perceived snubbing of 2008's The Dark Knight, the expansion which was widely regarded as an attempt to get more popular movies nominated for Best Picture — but some Academy members reportedly feel that nominating more films has diluted the value…
  • Maryland 'free range' parents charged with child neglect for letting kids walk home alone

    4 Mar 2015 | 6:09 am
    Danielle Meitiv is the new face of "free-range parenting." Last December, police in Silver Spring, Maryland, picked up Meitiv's two children — Rafi, 10, and Dvora, 6 — as they were walking home alone from a park a mile away from the Meitiv house. On Feb. 20, Montgomery County Child Protective Service informed the Meitivs that they had been found responsible for "unsubstantiated" child neglect. The parents went public this week, after consulting a lawyer. The finding, which Danielle and Alexander Meitiv are appealing, typically meaning that CPS hasn't ruled out neglect but couldn't…

  • U.S., Iran announce 'some progress' on nuclear deal after marathon negotiations

    4 Mar 2015 | 6:38 am
    One day after Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu warned that ongoing nuclear negotiations would "pave Iran's path" to a bomb, the U.S. and Tehran announced progress toward a final deal. "We have made some progress but have a lot of challenges yet ahead," a State Department official said, according to Reuters, following three days of talks in Switzerland.

  • Study finds air pollution could be hurting children's memory

    4 Mar 2015 | 6:29 am
    Air pollution isn't just bad for your lungs — it could also be harming children's brain development. A new study, published in the journal PLOS Medicine, found that the memories of children who live in high-pollution areas develop more slowly. The researchers spent a year studying the working memory and inattentiveness of 2,700 children aged seven to 10 at 29 schools in Spain. They found that air pollution hurt the cognitive development of children whose schools were in high-pollution areas. Children in low-pollution schools improved their working memory by 11.5 percent over the course of a…

    4 Mar 2015 | 6:11 am
    Bad news, filmmakers: a Best Picture nomination might soon be much harder to achieve. According to The Hollywood Reporter, a "significant fraction" of Academy voters are pushing for the organization to switch back to 5 Best Picture nominees, reversing an expansion of the field that was made just six years ago. In the immediate aftermath of the perceived snubbing of 2008's The Dark Knight, the expansion which was widely regarded as an attempt to get more popular movies nominated for Best Picture — but some Academy members reportedly feel that nominating more films has diluted the value…
  • Maryland 'free range' parents charged with child neglect for letting kids walk home alone

    4 Mar 2015 | 6:09 am
    Danielle Meitiv is the new face of "free-range parenting." Last December, police in Silver Spring, Maryland, picked up Meitiv's two children — Rafi, 10, and Dvora, 6 — as they were walking home alone from a park a mile away from the Meitiv house. On Feb. 20, Montgomery County Child Protective Service informed the Meitivs that they had been found responsible for "unsubstantiated" child neglect. The parents went public this week, after consulting a lawyer. The finding, which Danielle and Alexander Meitiv are appealing, typically meaning that CPS hasn't ruled out neglect but couldn't…

  • U.S., Iran announce 'some progress' on nuclear deal after marathon negotiations

    4 Mar 2015 | 6:38 am
    One day after Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu warned that ongoing nuclear negotiations would "pave Iran's path" to a bomb, the U.S. and Tehran announced progress toward a final deal. "We have made some progress but have a lot of challenges yet ahead," a State Department official said, according to Reuters, following three days of talks in Switzerland. The U.S., Iran, and world powers hope to establish a framework deal by the end of the month, which would be followed by a comprehensive agreement by June 30.
  • Study finds air pollution could be hurting children's memory

    4 Mar 2015 | 6:29 am
    Air pollution isn't just bad for your lungs — it could also be harming children's brain development. A new study, published in the journal PLOS Medicine, found that the memories of children who live in high-pollution areas develop more slowly. The researchers spent a year studying the working memory and inattentiveness of 2,700 children aged seven to 10 at 29 schools in Spain. They found that air pollution hurt the cognitive development of children whose schools were in high-pollution areas. Children in low-pollution schools improved their working memory by 11.5 percent over the course of a…
  • Ben Carson: Prison proves homosexuality is a choice because people go in straight and come out gay

    4 Mar 2015 | 6:12 am
    Ben Carson's proto-presidential campaign is off to a bizarre start after the neurosurgeon claimed Wednesday that homosexuality is "absolutely" a choice. His proof: Straight prisoners who come out of jail gay. "A lot of people who go into prison go into prison straight, and when they come out they're gay," he said in an interview with CNN. "So, did something happen while they were in there? Ask yourself that question." Leading medical associations agree that, contrary to Carson's claim, sexual orientation is not a choice.

  • Maryland 'free range' parents charged with child neglect for letting kids walk home alone

    4 Mar 2015 | 6:09 am
    Danielle Meitiv is the new face of "free-range parenting." Last December, police in Silver Spring, Maryland, picked up Meitiv's two children — Rafi, 10, and Dvora, 6 — as they were walking home alone from a park a mile away from the Meitiv house. On Feb. 20, Montgomery County Child Protective Service informed the Meitivs that they had been found responsible for "unsubstantiated" child neglect. The parents went public this week, after consulting a lawyer. The finding, which Danielle and Alexander Meitiv are appealing, typically meaning that CPS hasn't ruled out neglect but couldn't…

  • U.S., Iran announce 'some progress' on nuclear deal after marathon negotiations

    4 Mar 2015 | 6:38 am
    One day after Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu warned that ongoing nuclear negotiations would "pave Iran's path" to a bomb, the U.S. and Tehran announced progress toward a final deal. "We have made some progress but have a lot of challenges yet ahead," a State Department official said, according to Reuters, following three days of talks in Switzerland. The U.S., Iran, and world powers hope to establish a framework deal by the end of the month, which would be followed by a comprehensive agreement by June 30.
  • Study finds air pollution could be hurting children's memory

    4 Mar 2015 | 6:29 am
    Air pollution isn't just bad for your lungs — it could also be harming children's brain development. A new study, published in the journal PLOS Medicine, found that the memories of children who live in high-pollution areas develop more slowly. The researchers spent a year studying the working memory and inattentiveness of 2,700 children aged seven to 10 at 29 schools in Spain. They found that air pollution hurt the cognitive development of children whose schools were in high-pollution areas. Children in low-pollution schools improved their working memory by 11.5 percent over the course of a…
  • Ben Carson: Prison proves homosexuality is a choice because people go in straight and come out gay

    4 Mar 2015 | 6:12 am
    Ben Carson's proto-presidential campaign is off to a bizarre start after the neurosurgeon claimed Wednesday that homosexuality is "absolutely" a choice. His proof: Straight prisoners who come out of jail gay. "A lot of people who go into prison go into prison straight, and when they come out they're gay," he said in an interview with CNN. "So, did something happen while they were in there? Ask yourself that question." Leading medical associations agree that, contrary to Carson's claim, sexual orientation is not a choice. Carson on Tuesday launched an exploratory committee to consider a…

Last December, police in Silver Spring, Maryland, picked up Meitiv's two children — Rafi, 10, and Dvora, 6 — as they were walking home alone from a park a mile away from the Meitiv house. On Feb. 20, Montgomery County Child Protective Service informed the Meitivs that they had been found responsible for "unsubstantiated" child neglect. The parents went public this week, after consulting a lawyer. The finding, which Danielle and Alexander Meitiv are appealing, typically meaning that CPS hasn't ruled out neglect but couldn't…

  • U.S., Iran announce 'some progress' on nuclear deal after marathon negotiations

    4 Mar 2015 | 6:38 am
    One day after Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu warned that ongoing nuclear negotiations would "pave Iran's path" to a bomb, the U.S. and Tehran announced progress toward a final deal. "We have made some progress but have a lot of challenges yet ahead," a State Department official said, according to Reuters, following three days of talks in Switzerland. The U.S., Iran, and world powers hope to establish a framework deal by the end of the month, which would be followed by a comprehensive agreement by June 30.
  • Study finds air pollution could be hurting children's memory

    4 Mar 2015 | 6:29 am
    Air pollution isn't just bad for your lungs — it could also be harming children's brain development. A new study, published in the journal PLOS Medicine, found that the memories of children who live in high-pollution areas develop more slowly. The researchers spent a year studying the working memory and inattentiveness of 2,700 children aged seven to 10 at 29 schools in Spain. They found that air pollution hurt the cognitive development of children whose schools were in high-pollution areas. Children in low-pollution schools improved their working memory by 11.5 percent over the course of a…
  • Ben Carson: Prison proves homosexuality is a choice because people go in straight and come out gay

    4 Mar 2015 | 6:12 am
    Ben Carson's proto-presidential campaign is off to a bizarre start after the neurosurgeon claimed Wednesday that homosexuality is "absolutely" a choice. His proof: Straight prisoners who come out of jail gay. "A lot of people who go into prison go into prison straight, and when they come out they're gay," he said in an interview with CNN. "So, did something happen while they were in there? Ask yourself that question." Leading medical associations agree that, contrary to Carson's claim, sexual orientation is not a choice. Carson on Tuesday launched an exploratory committee to consider a…
  • The Academy is thinking about switching back to 5 Best Picture nominees

    Bad news, filmmakers: a Best Picture nomination might soon be much harder to achieve. According to The Hollywood Reporter, a "significant fraction" of Academy voters are pushing for the organization to switch back to 5 Best Picture nominees, reversing an expansion of the field that was made just six years ago. In the immediate aftermath of the perceived snubbing of 2008's The Dark Knight, the expansion which was widely regarded as an attempt to get more popular movies nominated for Best Picture — but some Academy members reportedly feel that nominating more films has diluted the value…

  • U.S., Iran announce 'some progress' on nuclear deal after marathon negotiations

    4 Mar 2015 | 6:38 am
    One day after Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu warned that ongoing nuclear negotiations would "pave Iran's path" to a bomb, the U.S. and Tehran announced progress toward a final deal. "We have made some progress but have a lot of challenges yet ahead," a State Department official said, according to Reuters, following three days of talks in Switzerland. The U.S., Iran, and world powers hope to establish a framework deal by the end of the month, which would be followed by a comprehensive agreement by June 30.
  • Study finds air pollution could be hurting children's memory

    4 Mar 2015 | 6:29 am
    Air pollution isn't just bad for your lungs — it could also be harming children's brain development. A new study, published in the journal PLOS Medicine, found that the memories of children who live in high-pollution areas develop more slowly. The researchers spent a year studying the working memory and inattentiveness of 2,700 children aged seven to 10 at 29 schools in Spain. They found that air pollution hurt the cognitive development of children whose schools were in high-pollution areas. Children in low-pollution schools improved their working memory by 11.5 percent over the course of a…
  • Ben Carson: Prison proves homosexuality is a choice because people go in straight and come out gay

    4 Mar 2015 | 6:12 am
    Ben Carson's proto-presidential campaign is off to a bizarre start after the neurosurgeon claimed Wednesday that homosexuality is "absolutely" a choice. His proof: Straight prisoners who come out of jail gay. "A lot of people who go into prison go into prison straight, and when they come out they're gay," he said in an interview with CNN. "So, did something happen while they were in there? Ask yourself that question." Leading medical associations agree that, contrary to Carson's claim, sexual orientation is not a choice. Carson on Tuesday launched an exploratory committee to consider a…
  • The Academy is thinking about switching back to 5 Best Picture nominees

    4 Mar 2015 | 6:11 am
    Bad news, filmmakers: a Best Picture nomination might soon be much harder to achieve. According to The Hollywood Reporter, a "significant fraction" of Academy voters are pushing for the organization to switch back to 5 Best Picture nominees, reversing an expansion of the field that was made just six years ago. In the immediate aftermath of the perceived snubbing of 2008's The Dark Knight, the expansion which was widely regarded as an attempt to get more popular movies nominated for Best Picture — but some Academy members reportedly feel that nominating more films has diluted the value…
  • Maryland 'free range' parents charged with child neglect for letting kids walk home alone

    4 Mar 2015 | 6:09 am
    Danielle Meitiv is the new face of "free-range parenting." Last December, police in Silver Spring, Maryland, picked up Meitiv's two children — Rafi, 10, and Dvora, 6 — as they were walking home alone from a park a mile away from the Meitiv house. On Feb. 20, Montgomery County Child Protective Service informed the Meitivs that they had been found responsible for "unsubstantiated" child neglect. The parents went public this week, after consulting a lawyer. The finding, which Danielle and Alexander Meitiv are appealing, typically meaning that CPS hasn't ruled out neglect but couldn't…

  • Study finds air pollution could be hurting children's memory

    4 Mar 2015 | 6:29 am
    Air pollution isn't just bad for your lungs — it could also be harming children's brain development. A new study, published in the journal PLOS Medicine, found that the memories of children who live in high-pollution areas develop more slowly. The researchers spent a year studying the working memory and inattentiveness of 2,700 children aged seven to 10 at 29 schools in Spain. They found that air pollution hurt the cognitive development of children whose schools were in high-pollution areas. Children in low-pollution schools improved their working memory by 11.5 percent over the course of a…
  • Ben Carson: Prison proves homosexuality is a choice because people go in straight and come out gay

    4 Mar 2015 | 6:12 am
    Ben Carson's proto-presidential campaign is off to a bizarre start after the neurosurgeon claimed Wednesday that homosexuality is "absolutely" a choice. His proof: Straight prisoners who come out of jail gay. "A lot of people who go into prison go into prison straight, and when they come out they're gay," he said in an interview with CNN. "So, did something happen while they were in there? Ask yourself that question." Leading medical associations agree that, contrary to Carson's claim, sexual orientation is not a choice. Carson on Tuesday launched an exploratory committee to consider a…
  • The Academy is thinking about switching back to 5 Best Picture nominees

    4 Mar 2015 | 6:11 am
    Bad news, filmmakers: a Best Picture nomination might soon be much harder to achieve. According to The Hollywood Reporter, a "significant fraction" of Academy voters are pushing for the organization to switch back to 5 Best Picture nominees, reversing an expansion of the field that was made just six years ago. In the immediate aftermath of the perceived snubbing of 2008's The Dark Knight, the expansion which was widely regarded as an attempt to get more popular movies nominated for Best Picture — but some Academy members reportedly feel that nominating more films has diluted the value…
  • Maryland 'free range' parents charged with child neglect for letting kids walk home alone

    4 Mar 2015 | 6:09 am
    Danielle Meitiv is the new face of "free-range parenting." Last December, police in Silver Spring, Maryland, picked up Meitiv's two children — Rafi, 10, and Dvora, 6 — as they were walking home alone from a park a mile away from the Meitiv house. On Feb. 20, Montgomery County Child Protective Service informed the Meitivs that they had been found responsible for "unsubstantiated" child neglect. The parents went public this week, after consulting a lawyer. The finding, which Danielle and Alexander Meitiv are appealing, typically meaning that CPS hasn't ruled out neglect but couldn't…

A new study, published in the journal PLOS Medicine, found that the memories of children who live in high-pollution areas develop more slowly. The researchers spent a year studying the working memory and inattentiveness of 2,700 children aged seven to 10 at 29 schools in Spain. They found that air pollution hurt the cognitive development of children whose schools were in high-pollution areas. Children in low-pollution schools improved their working memory by 11.5 percent over the course of a…
  • Ben Carson: Prison proves homosexuality is a choice because people go in straight and come out gay

    4 Mar 2015 | 6:12 am
    Ben Carson's proto-presidential campaign is off to a bizarre start after the neurosurgeon claimed Wednesday that homosexuality is "absolutely" a choice. His proof: Straight prisoners who come out of jail gay. "A lot of people who go into prison go into prison straight, and when they come out they're gay," he said in an interview with CNN. "So, did something happen while they were in there? Ask yourself that question." Leading medical associations agree that, contrary to Carson's claim, sexual orientation is not a choice. Carson on Tuesday launched an exploratory committee to consider a…
  • The Academy is thinking about switching back to 5 Best Picture nominees

According to The Hollywood Reporter, a "significant fraction" of Academy voters are pushing for the organization to switch back to 5 Best Picture nominees, reversing an expansion of the field that was made just six years ago. In the immediate aftermath of the perceived snubbing of 2008's The Dark Knight, the expansion which was widely regarded as an attempt to get more popular movies nominated for Best Picture — but some Academy members reportedly feel that nominating more films has diluted the value…
  • Maryland 'free range' parents charged with child neglect for letting kids walk home alone

    4 Mar 2015 | 6:09 am
    Danielle Meitiv is the new face of "free-range parenting." Last December, police in Silver Spring, Maryland, picked up Meitiv's two children — Rafi, 10, and Dvora, 6 — as they were walking home alone from a park a mile away from the Meitiv house. On Feb. 20, Montgomery County Child Protective Service informed the Meitivs that they had been found responsible for "unsubstantiated" child neglect. The parents went public this week, after consulting a lawyer. The finding, which Danielle and Alexander Meitiv are appealing, typically meaning that CPS hasn't ruled out neglect but couldn't…

  • U.S., Iran announce 'some progress' on nuclear deal after marathon negotiations

    4 Mar 2015 | 6:38 am
    One day after Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu warned that ongoing nuclear negotiations would "pave Iran's path" to a bomb, the U.S. and Tehran announced progress toward a final deal. "We have made some progress but have a lot of challenges yet ahead," a State Department official said, according to Reuters, following three days of talks in Switzerland. The U.S., Iran, and world powers hope to establish a framework deal by the end of the month, which would be followed by a comprehensive agreement by June 30.

    4 Mar 2015 | 6:12 am
    Ben Carson's proto-presidential campaign is off to a bizarre start after the neurosurgeon claimed Wednesday that homosexuality is "absolutely" a choice. His proof: Straight prisoners who come out of jail gay. "A lot of people who go into prison go into prison straight, and when they come out they're gay," he said in an interview with CNN. "So, did something happen while they were in there? Ask yourself that question." Leading medical associations agree that, contrary to Carson's claim, sexual orientation is not a choice. Carson on Tuesday launched an exploratory committee to consider a…
  • The Academy is thinking about switching back to 5 Best Picture nominees

    4 Mar 2015 | 6:11 am
    Bad news, filmmakers: a Best Picture nomination might soon be much harder to achieve. According to The Hollywood Reporter, a "significant fraction" of Academy voters are pushing for the organization to switch back to 5 Best Picture nominees, reversing an expansion of the field that was made just six years ago. In the immediate aftermath of the perceived snubbing of 2008's The Dark Knight, the expansion which was widely regarded as an attempt to get more popular movies nominated for Best Picture — but some Academy members reportedly feel that nominating more films has diluted the value…
  • Maryland 'free range' parents charged with child neglect for letting kids walk home alone

    4 Mar 2015 | 6:09 am
    Danielle Meitiv is the new face of "free-range parenting." Last December, police in Silver Spring, Maryland, picked up Meitiv's two children — Rafi, 10, and Dvora, 6 — as they were walking home alone from a park a mile away from the Meitiv house. On Feb. 20, Montgomery County Child Protective Service informed the Meitivs that they had been found responsible for "unsubstantiated" child neglect. The parents went public this week, after consulting a lawyer. The finding, which Danielle and Alexander Meitiv are appealing, typically meaning that CPS hasn't ruled out neglect but couldn't…

  • U.S., Iran announce 'some progress' on nuclear deal after marathon negotiations

    4 Mar 2015 | 6:38 am
    One day after Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu warned that ongoing nuclear negotiations would "pave Iran's path" to a bomb, the U.S. and Tehran announced progress toward a final deal. "We have made some progress but have a lot of challenges yet ahead," a State Department official said, according to Reuters, following three days of talks in Switzerland. The U.S., Iran, and world powers hope to establish a framework deal by the end of the month, which would be followed by a comprehensive agreement by June 30.
  • Study finds air pollution could be hurting children's memory

    4 Mar 2015 | 6:29 am
    Air pollution isn't just bad for your lungs — it could also be harming children's brain development. A new study, published in the journal PLOS Medicine, found that the memories of children who live in high-pollution areas develop more slowly. The researchers spent a year studying the working memory and inattentiveness of 2,700 children aged seven to 10 at 29 schools in Spain. They found that air pollution hurt the cognitive development of children whose schools were in high-pollution areas. Children in low-pollution schools improved their working memory by 11.5 percent over the course of a…

  • The Academy is thinking about switching back to 5 Best Picture nominees

    4 Mar 2015 | 6:11 am
    Bad news, filmmakers: a Best Picture nomination might soon be much harder to achieve. According to The Hollywood Reporter, a "significant fraction" of Academy voters are pushing for the organization to switch back to 5 Best Picture nominees, reversing an expansion of the field that was made just six years ago. In the immediate aftermath of the perceived snubbing of 2008's The Dark Knight, the expansion which was widely regarded as an attempt to get more popular movies nominated for Best Picture — but some Academy members reportedly feel that nominating more films has diluted the value…
  • Maryland 'free range' parents charged with child neglect for letting kids walk home alone

    4 Mar 2015 | 6:09 am
    Danielle Meitiv is the new face of "free-range parenting." Last December, police in Silver Spring, Maryland, picked up Meitiv's two children — Rafi, 10, and Dvora, 6 — as they were walking home alone from a park a mile away from the Meitiv house. On Feb. 20, Montgomery County Child Protective Service informed the Meitivs that they had been found responsible for "unsubstantiated" child neglect. The parents went public this week, after consulting a lawyer. The finding, which Danielle and Alexander Meitiv are appealing, typically meaning that CPS hasn't ruled out neglect but couldn't…

  • U.S., Iran announce 'some progress' on nuclear deal after marathon negotiations

    4 Mar 2015 | 6:38 am
    One day after Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu warned that ongoing nuclear negotiations would "pave Iran's path" to a bomb, the U.S. and Tehran announced progress toward a final deal. "We have made some progress but have a lot of challenges yet ahead," a State Department official said, according to Reuters, following three days of talks in Switzerland.

  • Study finds air pollution could be hurting children's memory

    4 Mar 2015 | 6:29 am
    Air pollution isn't just bad for your lungs — it could also be harming children's brain development. A new study, published in the journal PLOS Medicine, found that the memories of children who live in high-pollution areas develop more slowly. The researchers spent a year studying the working memory and inattentiveness of 2,700 children aged seven to 10 at 29 schools in Spain. They found that air pollution hurt the cognitive development of children whose schools were in high-pollution areas. Children in low-pollution schools improved their working memory by 11.5 percent over the course of a…

According to The Hollywood Reporter, a "significant fraction" of Academy voters are pushing for the organization to switch back to 5 Best Picture nominees, reversing an expansion of the field that was made just six years ago. In the immediate aftermath of the perceived snubbing of 2008's The Dark Knight, the expansion which was widely regarded as an attempt to get more popular movies nominated for Best Picture — but some Academy members reportedly feel that nominating more films has diluted the value…
  • Maryland 'free range' parents charged with child neglect for letting kids walk home alone

    4 Mar 2015 | 6:09 am
    Danielle Meitiv is the new face of "free-range parenting." Last December, police in Silver Spring, Maryland, picked up Meitiv's two children — Rafi, 10, and Dvora, 6 — as they were walking home alone from a park a mile away from the Meitiv house. On Feb. 20, Montgomery County Child Protective Service informed the Meitivs that they had been found responsible for "unsubstantiated" child neglect. The parents went public this week, after consulting a lawyer. The finding, which Danielle and Alexander Meitiv are appealing, typically meaning that CPS hasn't ruled out neglect but couldn't…

  • U.S., Iran announce 'some progress' on nuclear deal after marathon negotiations

    4 Mar 2015 | 6:38 am
    One day after Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu warned that ongoing nuclear negotiations would "pave Iran's path" to a bomb, the U.S. and Tehran announced progress toward a final deal. "We have made some progress but have a lot of challenges yet ahead," a State Department official said, according to Reuters, following three days of talks in Switzerland. The U.S., Iran, and world powers hope to establish a framework deal by the end of the month, which would be followed by a comprehensive agreement by June 30.
  • Study finds air pollution could be hurting children's memory

    4 Mar 2015 | 6:29 am
    Air pollution isn't just bad for your lungs — it could also be harming children's brain development. A new study, published in the journal PLOS Medicine, found that the memories of children who live in high-pollution areas develop more slowly. The researchers spent a year studying the working memory and inattentiveness of 2,700 children aged seven to 10 at 29 schools in Spain. They found that air pollution hurt the cognitive development of children whose schools were in high-pollution areas. Children in low-pollution schools improved their working memory by 11.5 percent over the course of a…
  • Ben Carson: Prison proves homosexuality is a choice because people go in straight and come out gay

    4 Mar 2015 | 6:12 am
    Ben Carson's proto-presidential campaign is off to a bizarre start after the neurosurgeon claimed Wednesday that homosexuality is "absolutely" a choice. His proof: Straight prisoners who come out of jail gay. "A lot of people who go into prison go into prison straight, and when they come out they're gay," he said in an interview with CNN. "So, did something happen while they were in there? Ask yourself that question." Leading medical associations agree that, contrary to Carson's claim, sexual orientation is not a choice. Carson on Tuesday launched an exploratory committee to consider a…
