Mothers, infants face mandatory drug testing at Cincinnati hospitals
RT
October 3, 2015

A group of Cincinnati hospitals has mandated drug testing of new mothers and infants amid an 841 percent increase in the number of expectant Ohio mothers found to have an opioid addiction in the last decade, according to state health officials.

Seven hospitals in the Cincinnati area have universally tested for drugs since late 2013. The number of newborns in the area that were exposed in the womb to Percocet, methadone, heroin and other opiates quadrupled from 10.8 infants per 1,000 births in 2009 to 46 per 1,000 births in the first three months of 2013, according to Cincinnati Children's.

No background on Mercer, 26 - or details about any possible motive - were released. However, Fox was told that as a precaution, counterterrorism officials were running his name against watchlists and checking his e-mail history, phone logs, social media..

Stacey Boylan, the mother of a witness to the shooting, told reporters that he asked potential victims whether or not they were Christian. "And they would stand up and he said, 'Good, because you're a Christian, you're going to see God in just about one second.' And then he shot and killed them."

Oped: The law that created illegal immigration

Before 1965, the United States was 85% white. Today, racial and ethnic minorities make up one-third of the population. Before 1965, the immigrant stream was largely European. Today, most new arrivals to this country come from Mexico, China and India.

he passage of the 1965 Hart-Celler Immigration Act, 50 years ago this month, made these changes possible. Contrary to what pundits often suggest, however, Hart-Celler wasn't an unmitigated good for all ethnic groups. In fact, it set Asians and Latinos on divergent paths, with consequences that continue to reverberate today. Starting in the late 19th century, race-based restrictions kept Asian immigration to a trickle. The 1882 Chinese Exclusion Act largely did what the name suggests; by 1924 Congress had barred all Asian groups. Eventually this complete prohibition gave way to a nominal quota system, but it wasn't until Hart-Celler that lawmakers finally abandoned blatantly racist immigration policy.

6 Reasons to be Concerned About Household Electronics

I know what you are thinking... You don't want to start reading this post. You love your household electronics and you do not need to find out that they are some sort of horrible thing that must be done away with.

However, like many things, they aren't perfectly safe and it's always a good thing to know what we are dealing with and ways to at least reduce the harmfulness (even if we aren't ready to get rid of those devices entirely.) Electromagnetic Fields or EMF are put out by any electronic device you might use. This ranges from minor things like your lamp to the bigger EMF producers like your wi-fi. EMF's are something to be concerned about.

The nuclear disaster at Fukushima didn't have to happen

After a devastating tsunami left 18,000 people dead in 2011, Japan was about to face a potentially more significant disaster as several reactors at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant started to melt down. More than 300,000 people were evacuated.

Since then, the Japanese government has tried to defend the Tokyo Electric Power Co. (TEPCO), which operated the plant, and offer reassurances that the country's nuclear reactors are secure. A study released Monday in the science journal Philosophical Transactions reaches a different conclusion, however: "The Fukushima accident was preventable, if international best practices and standards had been followed, if there had been international reviews, and had common sense prevailed in the interpretation of preexisting geological and hydrodynamic findings."

Elusive crime wave data shows frightening toll of illegal immigrant criminals
Fox News

The federal government can tell you how many "Native Hawaiian or Other Pacific Islanders" stole a car, the precise number of "American Indian or Alaska Natives" who were arrested for vagrancy or how many whites were busted for counterfeiting.

But the government agencies that crunch crime numbers are utterly unable -- or unwilling -- to pinpoint for the public how many illegal immigrants are arrested within U.S. borders each year. In the absence of comprehensive data, FoxNews.com examined a patchwork of local, state and federal statistics that revealed a wildly disproportionate number of murderers, rapists and drug dealers are crossing into the U.S. amid the wave of hard-working families seeking a better life. The explosive figures show illegal immigrants are three times as likely to be convicted of murder as members of the general population and account for far more crimes than their 3.5-percent share of the U.S. population would suggest. Critics say it is no accident that local, state and federal governments go to great lengths to keep the data under wraps.

Of the nearly 8 million people living in Israel in 2013, 320,000 were Christians.

The number of young Israeli Christians enlisted in the Israel Defense Forces is expected to set a new record next year, jns.org, a nonprofit wire service that covers Jewish and Israel news, reported Thursday. Last year, Christian enlistment in the Israel Defense Forces rose to more than 100 soldiers due to recruitment efforts by Christian leaders and Christian youths seeking greater integration into Israeli society; that number is expected to increase to 200 by 2016.
