Father Junipero Serra to be elevated to sainthood, Pope Francis says - LA Times -
Father Junipero Serra to be elevated to sainthood, Pope Francis says - LA Times
"Catching most of the Catholic faithful by surprise, Pope Francis announced Thursday that he plans to canonize Father Junipero Serra, the 18th-century Spanish Franciscan priest both revered and reviled for founding nine missions in California." - Steve C, Team Marina from Bookmarklet
Before Serra's arrival, hundreds of thousands of indigenous people had lived in what is today California. But the mission system imposed pressure on Indians to assimilate while also exposing thousands to foreign diseases, wiping out villages, native animals and plants. "Most Indians who came to missions didn't live very long," Hackel said. "Those baptized lived short lives. "It was an... more... - Steve C, Team Marina
This may be a moot point, but can't they just stop making saints? It seems so archaic and goofy. And something like this instance is downright disrespectful to the native people who were harassed by this dude. I just don't like it. - Jenny H. from Android
Guess the streets, hills, schools etc around here that bear his name ain't enough huh. Haven't read the article. Saints have to have performed a miracle right? What was Serra's miracle? - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!

In a first, the Golden Gate Bridge will close for the weekend - LA Times
"The bridge will be closed for 52 hours from 12:01 a.m. Saturday to Monday morning while crews install a new, movable median along the bridge. The barriers allow new, huge "zipper trucks" to change the number of northbound and southbound lanes with traffic flow – a safer alternative to having a person hang outside a truck picking up and dropping off orange pylons, which was the old method." - Steve C, Team Marina from Bookmarklet

Anti-vaccination update: How the measles crisis struck Disneyland - LA Times -
Anti-vaccination update: How the measles crisis struck Disneyland - LA Times
"This looks like another artifact of the rise of the anti-vaccination movement. The Disneyland cases undermine the anti-vaccination argument that leaving children unimmunized affects only those who haven't received shots. They show how a single unimmunized carrier can spread disease into the larger population, especially individuals who can't be vaccinated because of age. As my colleague Emily Foxhall reported, the Department of Public Health believes that a single unimmunized visitor to Disneyland or the adjacent California Adventure Park in Anaheim from Dec. 15 to Dec. 20 was the source of the latest outbreak. The infection then spread to patients in Pasadena, the counties of Alameda, Orange, Riverside and San Diego, and Utah, affecting children as young as 8 months. Of the victims, one had received the standard two doses of the MMR (measles, mumps and rubella) vaccine. Two San Diego county siblings who were exposed at Disney may have later spread measles to people who were at the Parkway Plaza Mall in El Cajon on Dec. 29, the CDPH says." - Steve C, Team Marina from Bookmarklet
"As the public health agency observes, measles was judged to be eliminated in the United States in 2000. But recent outbreaks in Europe, Pakistan, Vietnam and the Philippines can be brought to the U.S. by unvaccinated travelers. "Disney and other theme parks in California are international attractions and visitors come from many parts of the world, including those where measles is... more... - Steve C, Team Marina

2 Year Old Boy in shooting 'unzipped' special purse gun pocket
"Concealed weapons are part of everyday life in Idaho, and that's unlikely to change in the Mountain West state despite a shocking accident in which a 2-year-old boy reached into his mother's purse, got ahold of her gun and shot her in the head inside a Wal-Mart. Veronica J. Rutledge, 29, was shopping Tuesday morning with her son and three nieces in Hayden, Idaho, when the small-caliber handgun discharged one time, killing her. Terry Rutledge, Veronica's father-in-law, told The Spokesman-Review that the boy unzipped the special gun compartment in the woman's purse where the weapon was kept while she was looking at clothing." - Steve C, Team Marina from Bookmarklet

New Connection Between Red Meat And Cancer -
New Connection Between Red Meat And Cancer
"Scientists have discovered what they believe to be the connection between red meat and cancer, which have long been linked by researchers. A team of scientists from the University of California San Diego (UCSD) discovered this week that red meats including beef, pork and lamb contain a sugar that's created naturally by many other meat-eating animals but not by humans. The sugar identified in the study, dubbed Neu5GC, caused tumors in mice genetically engineered to not produce the compound in a lab study conducted by the researchers. The results help provide a level of groundbreaking understanding about the cancer-causing effects of red meat consumption by humans." - Steve C, Team Marina from Bookmarklet

Leaked NSA Documents Reveal How To Hide From The NSA
"f you want a truly anonymous life, then maybe it's time you learned about Tor, CSpace and ZRTP. These three technologies could help people hide their activities from the National Security Agency, according to NSA documents newly obtained from the archive of former contractor Edward Snowden by the German magazine Der Spiegel. The combination of Tor, CSpace and ZRTP (plus another anonymizing technology for good measure) results in levels of protection that the NSA deems "catastrophic" -- meaning the organization has "near-total loss/lack of insight to target communications," according to Der Spiegel." - Steve C, Team Marina from Bookmarklet

Keurig recalls more than 7 mln brewing machines in North America
"Keurig Green Mountain Inc said it would recall about 7.2 million hot beverage-brewing machines that could overheat and cause injury by spraying hot liquids on users. The affected machines are Keurig Mini Plus brewers made between December 2009 and July 2014 with the model number K10 and serial numbers starting with 31, the company said on its website. ( The recall affects 6.6 million machines in the United States and 564,000 in Canada. Keurig's shares were down 3.3 percent at $135.15 in light premarket trading on Tuesday. The company said the machines could malfunction especially if used to brew more than two cups in quick succession." - Steve C, Team Marina from Bookmarklet
Amazing coincidence the recall wasn't announced till the end of the holiday buying season. I know it's the model they stopped selling in July but you'd think 90 injuries would have prompted a little prompter recall. - Steve C, Team Marina

US economy grows incredible 5% in third quarter - Dec. 23, 2014
"U.S. economic strength: This is the third and final reading on GDP, and the 5% figure represents an upgrade from the Commerce Department's initial estimate of 3.9% growth. The stellar third quarter also marks an acceleration from the very strong growth of 4.6% during the second quarter and the rough first quarter when GDP was -2.1% due to the harsh winter weather. All of that helps explain why hiring has increased dramatically this year. Employers added 321,000 jobs in November, making 2014 the strongest year for job growth since 1999. The solid growth could clear the path for the Federal Reserve to increase interest rates in 2015. While there is some trepidation about the first interest rate hike in nearly a decade, it would signal that the U.S. economy in actually strong enough to take off the training wheels." - Steve C, Team Marina from Bookmarklet

"Harvey used his security clearance to help provide guns to a passenger named Mark Quentin Henry after Henry cleared security. - Henry allegedly brought the firearms in his carry-on luggage on at least five flights from Atlanta to New York between May 1 and December 10. - During that time frame, Henry supplied 129 handguns and two assault rifles to co-conspirators in New York, the affidavit states. - One of those co-conspirators ended up selling the firearms to an undercover New York police officer. Henry was arrested in New York on December 10 after landing at JFK airport with 18 handguns in his bag -- seven of which were loaded, the affidavit says." - Steve C, Team Marina from Bookmarklet

Rex Grossman Turns Down Offer from the Browns with Family in Town | Bleacher Report
"With injuries to Johnny Manziel and Brian Hoyer, the quarterback situation is looking bleak in Cleveland. In need of a healthy arm, the Browns actually reached out to free-agent signal-caller Rex Grossman. Surprisingly, the 12-year journeyman turned down the offer with his family in town." "As a veteran with more than 10 years in the NFL, Grossman would have been due — at the minimum — one-seventeenth of $910,000 for his week of work. That's $53,529.41 by our count for less than a full week's work, really six days from today through Sunday." - Steve C, Team Marina from Bookmarklet

Over Half of Dr. Oz’s Advice Is Unfounded: Study
"“One out of three recommendations from The Dr. Oz Show has believable evidence, and about half of the recommendations on The Doctors has believable evidence,” Mike Allan, another Alberta medical professor and co-author of the study, said in a statement. Of the health recommendations that appeared on The Dr. Oz Show, researchers found evidence to support 46 percent, meaning that 46 percent of the time the show gave solid advice. But 15 percent of the time, the advice directly contradicted best available evidence.

Parental units: All babies are different and there's no one magic solution but did you have any success with any kind of sleep training and if so at what age?

Ferber method, around 5 months for my 2nd and a year for my first kid. Worked for me, generally, but I'm not dogmatic about it. - Stephen Mack
crying it out was becoming a disaster for all of us, including our (first) baby. my inlaws were recommending a baby bottle full of red wine. we went with co-sleeping instead. we all slept great then. both our kids decided to sleep without us by roughly age 18 months. - Big Joe Silence
Thanks for inputs Stephen and Joe - Steve C, Team Marina
Everything was going fine for us until a couple weeks ago when teething started. (5 months) Those teeth have pushed through but the sleep pattern is a disaster now. Coupled with not wanting to take a bottle or any interest in food yet, this is destroying my wife. We have not yet taken chemical warfare off the table yet. So what I'm saying is, "I hear you, and I'm following this thread for ideas." - Brian Johns
If it makes you feel better the teething/6 month sleep regression doesn't last forever, or no kid would make it to 7 mo. We were a cosleeping family (because I could feed in my sleep), but many many of our friends were not. As our moms group leader said, "Do whatever gets everyone the most sleep." Good luck! - Jaclyn aka spamgirl from Android
My mum says at 6mo the best shot at sleep training is keeping to a very consistent schedule. Bedtime at a specific time, wake up too. Naps can be harder for this. If he takes a long time to get down try putting him to bed earlier (this is more for your sanity than his comfort). - Soup in a TARDIS
Well we're consistent with bedtime and wakeup it's that whole time in between he doesn't understand so far Soup. :) - Steve C, Team Marina
Indeed. - Brian Johns
Keep in mind, both me and Adrian worked at home, so a disruption in our sleep wasn't disastrous. We did CIO, but we also didn't put the kids to bed until about 10pm. They both slept through the night at 4/5 mos. teething wasn't an issue for us, but around 8 - 10 mos. neither of them wanted to sleep, just play. We put them in bed with me. - Anika
I'm exactly where Brian is at. We were golden until teething happened. :/ - Tamara J. B. from FFHound(roid)!
THe sleep regressions seem to last a lot longer than they really least in our experience. We did the cereal in the bottle at bedtime thing and that seemed to help her sleep longer stretches.
