UPDATE: June 8 — The CDC reported Friday that 172 children had died from the flu, making this the deadliest seasonal flu season on record.

PREVIOUSLY:

Mia Lobo couldn’t wait for mid-May when she would graduate from preschool and dance in her first recital. Her family had talked about the big milestones for weeks.

The outgoing 5-year-old from a Chicago suburb was a little nervous about the performance, but her father, Dominic Lobo, said he wasn’t worried.

After all, she was one of those kids who loved the limelight, a “little ball of fire.” Mia often held court with her friends and family, playing dress up and stealing her 17-year-old sister’s makeup.

4 Common Myths About Ticks Debunked Folk tales abound about how to protect yourself from these critters. Here’s the truth.

Leave a comment

.

When it comes to ticks, old wives’ tales are in great supply. Take, for instance, the one about burning an embedded tick with a lit match or the one about covering it with nail polish to get it to let go. (There’s no proof that either of these works.)

Or the widespread belief that you’ll feel it if you’ve been bitten by a tick. (The bites themselves are painless, which is why checking yourself after spending time in tick-infested areas is essential.) 

One thing is true, though: It’s more important than ever to know how to protect yourself and your family.

“Ticks are the No. 1 cause of vector-borne disease in the U.S.,” says William Nicholson, Ph.D., a research microbiologist with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. And tick-transmitted infections, such as Lyme disease, Rocky Mountain spotted fever, and anaplasmosis, are on the rise and spreading to new parts of the U.S.

Charles Krauthammer Pens Final Column: ‘Only A Few Weeks Left To Live’

.

In his final column for The Washington Post, Pulitzer Prize-winning columnist and Fox News pundit Charles Krauthammer announced he has only weeks to live.

Krauthammer explained he’s spent most of the last year recovering from surgery to remove a cancerous tumor in his abdomen.

Although the operation was initially thought to have been successful, Krauthammer said he’s been fighting “a cascade of secondary complications” ever since.

These Are the Smartest and Dumbest U.S. Presidents and How Donald Trump Compares

Leave a comment

Donald Trump definitely thinks he’s one of the smartest people to ever sit in the Oval Office. He’s also obsessed with the idea of IQ scores. (He even refers to them in his insults!) Researchers measure a person’s IQ, short for intelligence quotient, with standardized tests. Those tests yield a score that supposedly reflects the person’s intelligence. So plenty of people wonder which presidents have had the highest and lowest IQ scores. (And who makes the list of the smartest presidents or the dumbest presidents.)

Because many presidents died before the advent of IQ testing, we don’t have real IQ scores for most of them. But in a 2006 study, University of California psychologist Dean Keith Simonton attempted to estimate an IQ for every president. Simonton used variables that correlate with IQ. This historiometric approach looked at factors including each president’s academic performance, writings, and other evidence.

Read on to discover which presidents Simonton labeled as the smartest and the dumbest. Barack Obama isn’t included in the study. But even though neither Obama nor Donald Trump had yet taken office when Simonton’s study took place in 2006, we’ll still take a look at where Donald Trump likely stands.

Isolated at G-7, Trump says he wants to let Russia back in

Leave a comment

The G-7 this year looks more like a G-6+1. But if President Donald Trump gets his way, it would soon be a G-8 again, complete with the addition of Russia.

Trump said Friday that he wants the Group of Seven nations — the U.S., the U.K., France, Japan, Germany, Italy and Canada — to let Russia back into their club after it was expelled in 2014 for annexing Crimea.

“They threw Russia out,” Trump said as he departed the White House for a two-day G-7 summit in Charlevoix, Canada. “They should let Russia come back in because we should have Russia at the negotiating table.”
