In the new framework, second graders will learn that some families have two moms or two dads, a concept that is presented as part of normal diversity among people. The revised draft reads:
“In Standard 2.1, students develop a beginning sense of history through the study of the family, a topic that is understandable and interesting to them…Through studying the stories of a very diverse collection of families, such as immigrant families, families with lesbian, gay, bisexual, or transgender parents and their children, families of color, step- and blended families, families headed by single parents, extended families…families with disabled members, families from different religious traditions, and adoptive families, students can both locate themselves and their own families in history and learn about the lives and historical struggles of their peers. In developing these activities, teachers should not assume any particular family structure and ask questions in a way that will easily include children from diverse family backgrounds. They need be sensitive to family diversity and privacy, and to protect the wishes of students and parents who prefer not to participate”.
RESULTS: We found increased risks of being diagnosed with AD overall and specifically with comorbid mental retardation in children of foreign-born mothers who were black, Central/South American, Filipino, and Vietnamese, as well as among US-born Hispanic and African American/black mothers, compared with US-born whites. Children of US African American/black and foreign-born black, foreign-born Central/South American, and US-born Hispanic mothers were at higher risk of exhibiting an AD phenotype with both severe emotional outbursts and impaired expressive language than children of US-born whites.

Producing the right element is one thing, using it is another. In conjunction with this discovery, Russia also released the availability of its first 3D metal printer… that turning iron or lead into gold is not fringe science at all but real and replicable, and the technology to do it is officially available to the world. Also, the invention allows to obtain valuable radioactive elements, to carry out the inactivation of nuclear waste from the conversion of waste radioactive isotopes of elements into stable isotopes.

Vladislav Karabanov: “Today, here in Geneva, we are making public a discovery and a technology which without any exaggeration could be of historic significance.
The essence of this discovery and the technology boils down to the development of an industrial method for the transformation of chemical elements into other elements and their isotopes”
Note: A little about Vladislav Karabanov: If you point the camera to the sky in Sochi, you can easily catch a glimpse of alien spaceships – says local UFO watcher Vladislav Karabanov. From the terrace of his home he has captured more than a hundred such incidents. Most are decent quality, since they were shot using high-definition cameras. Read more about Vladislave and UFOs
VLA comment: Wonder where Vladislav is getting such mind boggling break through technology from?

This is Cupriavidus metallidurans in action, eating away the toxins and producing the gold.
At just 17 months of age, Otto Coleman’s life changed drastically and suddenly. After receiving a shocking number of vaccines – 37 to be exact – he ended up being paralyzed with transverse myelitis, and will spend the rest of his life in a wheelchair.
His father, Joshua Coleman, said that he took a close look at his son’s vaccination records and was startled by what he found. “At seventeen months old, he had received thirty-seven vaccines, which is about three times the amount I got in my entire adult life.”
He said that doctors initially gave him the runaround, despite initial MRIs pointing to vaccine injury as the likely culprit. Incidentally, this was later proven to be the cause at Johns Hopkins.
