On Monday, a Wisconsin judge ruled that the two 13-year-old girls accused of attempting to murder a classmate to impress fictional Internet character Slender Man will be tried as adults.

The teens face dramatically different treatment because of the judge’s decision. Children tried as adults face longer sentences and fewer resources while incarcerated, and they’re more likely to be assaulted in adult prisons than juvenile facilities.

If convicted in juvenile court, the 13-year-olds would have faced detention until the age of 18, followed by intense supervision and services when released back into their communities. In adult court, they face up to 65 years in prison. They may also be sentenced to a combination of prison and extended supervision under the Department of Corrections.

Carrying signs that read “Black Lives Matter,” protesters marched in Wisconsin on Saturday over the fatal shooting by a veteran police officer of an unarmed 19-year-old black man.

Tony Terrell Robinson Jr. was shot by Madison Police Officer Matt Kenny at around 6:30 p.m. Friday after Kenny followed Robinson and forced his way inside an apartment, police said. Police said Kenny was looking for Robinson after getting reports that a man was jumping in front of cars and who assaulted someone. He followed Robinson to an apartment, forced his way inside after hearing a disturbance, and fired after he was attacked, police said.

Some protesters who marched in Madison Saturday called Robinson’s death a murder.

An hour after a woman reported her newborn son missing from a Wisconsin home, police were questioning her step-sister — found with a prosthetic pregnancy belly, baby clothes and a stroller, but no baby, according to court documents.

It was more than 24 hours after Kayden Powell went missing before authorities discovered the infant, less than a week old, in a plastic storage crate outside an Iowa gas station, miraculously alive and well despite frigid temperatures.

Kristen Smith of Denver had pretended to be pregnant, went to Wisconsin and stole her step-sister’s baby from his bassinet as his parents slept, court documents say. Then, as police closed in on her, she allegedly abandoned the infant, who was swaddled in blankets.

A Wisconsin woman who went missing more than nine years ago has been found living in Mexico with her three children.

Connie McCallister, 26, was found after a church missionary in Mexico reported seeing her to the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children three months ago, according to the Wausau Daily Herald.

“We have confirmed, through conversations on Skype, that this is really Connie, and she did ask for help in getting home,” Wausau Police Capt. Greg Hagenbucher told the newspaper. “But she won’t come back without her children.”

Sleep ‘boosts brain cell numbers’

Scientists believe they have discovered a new reason why we need to sleep – it replenishes a type of brain cell.

Sleep ramps up the production of cells that go on to make an insulating material known as myelin which protects our brain’s circuitry.

The findings, so far in mice, could lead to insights about sleep’s role in brain repair and growth as well as the disease MS, says the Wisconsin team.

The work is in the Journal of Neuroscience.

Dr Chiara Cirelli and colleagues from the University of Wisconsin found that the production rate of the myelin making cells, immature oligodendrocytes, doubled as mice slept.

The increase was most marked during the type of sleep that is associated with dreaming – REM or rapid eye movement sleep – and was driven by genes.

In contrast, the genes involved in cell death and stress responses were turned on when the mice were forced to stay awake.

Precisely why we need to sleep has baffled scientists for centuries. It’s obvious that we need to sleep to feel rested and for our mind to function well – but the biological processes that go on as we slumber have only started to be uncovered relatively recently.

Advanced Cell Technology, Inc. (“ACT”; OTCBB: ACTC), a leader in the field of regenerative medicine, announced today that chief scientific officer Robert Lanza, M.D., is featured on the “TOP 50 Global Stem Cell Influencers” list from Terrapinn’s life sciences division, TotalBiopharma (“World Stem Cells & Regenerative Medicine Congress 2013”). The list features the most influential people in the global stem cell and cell therapy field, including world renowned academics, industry players, and governmental officials.

Dr. Lanza was among the top four on the list, alongside the University of Wisconsin’s Dr. James Thomson, known as the first scientist to derive human embryonic stem cells (in 1998) and for his work with induced pluripotent stem (iPS) cells; and Kyoto University’s Dr. Shinya Yamanaka, co-winner of the 2012 Nobel Prize for Physiology or Medicine for his work with iPS cells, and a winner of the inaugural $3 million Breakthrough Prize in Life Sciences earlier this year.

In recent times, DEPRESSION has been the major cause of suicide. ANGER has led to premature death, LOW SELF ESTEEM has led to suicide because they do not see themselves as being able to carry on with life and feel others are better than they are. I have taken it upon myself to listen and write to the public and victims of these. If distance cannot make me listen and interact with you physically, then I hope my message would reach and touch your heart knowing that you are not in this alone and you can come out of it. Also, mastering the habits of a healthy lifestyle, peace of mind, better communication will have a great impact on your journey through life.
