An interesting article on literature and the Common Core standards and how they do NOT encourage the reading of the great classics. Great lines like "Call me Ishmael" may be lost from the cultural literacy.  Read more at Common Core ELA

The debate about vaccines and vaccine safety goes on.
Link between fetal cells in MMR vaccinations and autism from September 2014

Using statistical analysis and data from the US Government, UK, Denmark and Western Australia, scientists at Sound Choice Pharmaceutical Institute (SCPI) found that increases in autistic disorder correspond with the introduction of vaccines using human fetal cell lines and retroviral contaminants.Even more alarming, Dr Theresa Deisher, lead scientist and SCPI founder noted that, “Not only are the human fetal contaminated vaccines associated with autistic disorder throughout the world, but also with epidemic childhood leukemia and lymphomas.”
