Danger of guns in homes

first_img Read Full Story Parents with guns in the house should assume their children are aware of the firearms – and possibly have even touched them, according to David Hemenway, professor of health policy and director of the Harvard Injury Control Research Center at Harvard School of Public Health (HSPH).“Just like parents don’t think kids know where the Christmas presents are hidden, the same is true for guns,” he said in a January 28, 2014 interview on ParentMap.com. In studies in which pediatricians asked parents about their children’s knowledge of and experience with guns in the home, most parents didn’t think their kids knew there were guns at home. One-third of the boys, however, reported they had already played with the hidden weapons.last_img read more

Klopp says Man Utd-Liverpool clash is ‘biggest game’

first_imgLondon, United Kingdom | AFP | Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp says Saturday’s Premier League clash against Manchester United is “the biggest game I can imagine”, with the bitter rivals locked in a battle for second place.Klopp’s team, in third, are just two points behind Jose Mourinho’s side but 18 adrift of runaway leaders Manchester City, meaning the title is out of the question barring a calamity for City.However, Klopp’s men know a victory at Old Trafford will take them above United.“It’s the biggest game I can imagine,” said Klopp. “I’m looking forward to it. We need to be at 100 percent, if not even a few more (percent).”Asked how he would feel about Mourinho “parking the bus” and setting his side up defensively to counter Liverpool’s attacking trio of Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino, the German said he would never use the phrase. “I have absolutely no problem with defending. It’s all about winning,” he said.“When United attack I hope all my players are involved in defending. If someone says that is ‘parking the bus’ I have no problem with that.”Full-back Nathaniel Clyne is close to a return to action having not yet featured this season due to a back problem.He may have to wait longer for his chance, though, after Klopp praised the performances of Joe Gomez and Trent Alexander-Arnold in Clyne’s absence.Fellow full-back Andy Robertson is also available while Klopp added that Jordan Henderson “looked OK yesterday” after a dead leg and Georginio Wijnaldum is on his way back from illness.Share on: WhatsApplast_img read more

Busy Pajama Day

first_imgBy Kathy MieleSteven walked into the room and had a concerned look on his face. It was 2 o’clock in the afternoon and I was still in my pajamas.“Are you feeling alright?” he asked.“Can you hold on for a minute?” I said to my sister, then turned my head so Steven could see that I had my phone’s headset on. “Hey, you’re home early for a Saturday,” I said to him.“I’m just stopping in for a minute. I have two more appointments before I’m really home,” he said.“Hey, Liz can I call you right back? Steven just stopped in for a minute.” I clicked my headset off and turned back to Steven. “I’m sorry. What did you say when you first walked in?”“I asked if you were feeling OK.”“Yeah, why?”“You’re still in your pajamas and bathrobe,” he said.I put down the shorts I’d been sewing a button on. “No, actually I’ve had a really busy day,” I said. “I’ve baked a batch of brownies, I’m on my third load of wash, and I’ve got a pot of sauce simmering for dinner.”I cinched my robe tighter as I headed for the laundry room to switch a load out of the washer and into the dryer. “Right now I’m working on some clothes that needed mending.”“Oh,” Steven sounded happy. “Did you get a chance to sew that missing button on my shirt?”“Done,” I answered, pointing to the pile of finished pieces already on top of the dryer.Reloading the dryer, I hit the start button and headed for the kitchen. “Do you want me to make you some deviled eggs?” I asked. “I hard-boiled a dozen earlier this morning.”“Sure, that sounds great,” Steven said as he followed me into the kitchen.“Careful, I just washed the floor. It’s not completely dry yet,” I called as he stayed in the doorway and I tiptoed in to get the eggs started.“Wow, you have been busy,” he said leaning against the doorframe.“I’ve gotten so much done. I love pajama day!” I said, cracking the shell of the first egg. “How’s your day going?” I asked.“Busy,” he said. “But not as busy as yours.”I had to laugh. “I’ve still got a few more things I want to get done before I get showered and dressed. But at the rate I’m going, if it gets any closer to dinnertime before I’m finished I might as well get showered and put on a fresh set of jammies!”I handed him a plate with a few deviled eggs and sat next to him at the dining room table while he ate.Steven shrugged his shoulders. “Hey, who’s going to know, right?”Just then the doorbell rang. I looked around the corner and saw a neighbor standing at our front door. I leaned back against my chair, trying not to be seen. “Can you get that for me?” I asked.Steven looked at me. “What’s wrong?” he asked.“Are you kidding?” I waved my hand in front of me. “I’m in my pajamas! They’re going to think I’m some sort of sloth, just hanging around all day.”“You could always explain what pajama day means to you,” he said.“Very funny,” I said as I hid in the kitchen while Steven got up to get the door.“By the way,” I whispered. “I’m not home, OK?”last_img read more
