Should Parents Tell Kids About Their Own Past, Umm, Indiscretions?
Huffington Post - almost 4 years
Alright, so maybe you smoked a bit of weed in high school or college. Perhaps you even dabbled with something stronger. You want to tell your kids about it so that they can learn from your mistakes. Good idea? According to a new study, no. Researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign surveyed 561 middle school students on talks they had had with their parents about drinking, smoking and marijuana. They found that the kids were less likely to think drugs were bad if their parents had shared stories of past substance use with them. Kids whose parents simply drove home an anti-drug message without revealing their own indiscretions were more likely to avoid them. So does this mean you should blatantly lie to your kids? "We are not recommending that parents lie to their early adolescent children about their own past drug use," the study’s lead author Jennifer Kam, an assistant professor of communication, told Huff/Post50. "Instead, we are suggesting that p ...

Deadly Crash Gets B.C. Company Banned
Huffington Post - about 4 years
VANCOUVER - British Columbia has put the brakes on the operations of a tour bus company involved in a crash in Oregon that killed nine people after an audit revealed safety records required under the law were not available. The Transportation Ministry said Friday that Mi Joo Tour and Travel Ltd. of Coquitlam, B.C., also failed to provide pre-trip inspection reports related to its six buses. "What we found in the audit was that they're not able to provide records ensuring that they're monitoring their drivers for hours of service," said Perry Dennis, deputy director of the ministry's Commercial Vehicle Safety Enforcement branch. He said drivers cannot exceed 70 hours of service within a week and must take eight hours off within a 24-hour cycle. On Tuesday, the U.S. Department of Transportation filed an "imminent hazard" order against the company, saying it doesn't ensure drivers are properly rested. The Mi Joo tour bus smashed through a guardrail on Interstate-84 on Dec. 3 ...

Autumnal Equinox is Here and Forecasters Are Already Using the 'F' Word—Frost
Burnsville Patch - over 4 years
Summer officially ended at 9:49 Saturday morning, and already the Twin Cities region is in for a cold snap. Early Saturday morning, officials upgraded a freeze watch to a freeze warning. The warning is in effect from late Saturday night to Sunday morning. According to the National Weather Service in Chanhassen, temperatures could fall as low as 25 degrees outside the Twin Cities' urban core, which would kill crops and sensitive vegetation The freeze is a bit early. The first fall frost typically comes around Oct. 5, according to the Farmers' Almanac. In Burnsville, the NWA predicts that the low will hit 34, two degrees above freezing, with areas of frost from 1 a.m. to 9 a.m. on Sunday morning. However, Mary Schier, editor at Northern Gardener magazine, cautions that the thermometer may be deceptive.  "Frost can form when air temperatures read above 32. Because cold air sinks, the temperature on the ground is often several degrees lower than that above the ground," Schier w ...

A case in point: ''Most Extreme Elimination
