Emily Sohn, The Washington Post Published 6:19 am PDT, Sunday, April 28, 2019 It only took a few seconds. During a family trip, a woman took out an Ambien and put the prescription sleep aid on her bathroom counter. Then, she turned to grab a bottle of water. In an instant, her toddler grandson grabbed the pill and ate it. "She was standing right there, not even moving away, just reaching with her hands," says Maneesha Agarwal, a pediatric emergency medicine doctor at the Emory University School of Medicine in Atlanta and Children's Healthcare of Atlanta, who treated the child in the ER. "It was that fast." U.S. hospitals treated nearly 52,000 children under age 6 for medicine poisonings in 2017, says Safe Kids Worldwide, an injury-prevention nonprofit group. That's down from almost 76,000 in 2010, suggesting that safety measures are helping. But it's still too many, says Dan Budnitz, an internal medicine physician who directs the Medication Safety Program at the Centers … [Read more...] about Children vs. accidental poisonings

Vogel April 15, 2019 WASHINGTON — The bad blood started early. In 2008, Neera Tanden, then a top aide on Hillary Clinton’s first presidential campaign, accompanied Mrs. Clinton to what was expected to be an easy interview at the Center for American Progress, the influential group founded by top Clinton aides. But Faiz Shakir, the chief editor of the think tank’s ThinkProgress website, asked Mrs. Clinton a question about the Iraq war, an issue dogging her candidacy because she had supported it. Ms. Tanden responded by circling back to Mr. Shakir after the interview and, according to a person in the room, punching him in the chest. “I didn’t slug him, I … [Read more...] about The Rematch: Bernie Sanders vs. a Clinton Loyalist
By Hamza Junaid Published: March 6, 2019 0 SHARES Share Tweet Email Despite their negative qualities, Asif Ali and Umar Akmal are among the top contenders for a lower order batsman. I know the first thing that comes to mind when I mention the name Umar Akmal is, “Why are we talking about him again?” Yes, perhaps we shouldn’t be. It is certainly a dangerous thought that lurks in my head, that I perhaps should have let go of the very instant it popped up.That is, however, difficult to do because right now we desperately need a power hitter to fill the number six spot as part of our team’s line-up at the 2019 Cricket World Cup. The only two players that currently fit the criteria are Akmal and Asif Ali. I already know that neither of these is an ideal pick and that both of them are unpolished in some way or the other. One of these even carries a ‘hazard’ sign on him because of his potential to ruin the dressing room. We … [Read more...] about Umar Akmal vs Asif Ali: Who deserves to play in the 2019 World Cup?
By Trudy Rubin, The Philadelphia Inquirer | PUBLISHED: November 26, 2018 at 12:45 pm | UPDATED: November 26, 2018 at 12:50 pm By Trudy RubinPhiladelphia Inquirer YANTAI, China — They shop in malls and high-end supermarkets, buy condos by the seaside, attend wine tastings, vacation abroad and push their kids to apply to Harvard. But they aren’t American suburbanites; they are China’s huge and growing urban middle class, which Beijing hopes will eventually consume enough to lower the country’s dependence on exports. Whatever the outcome of the U.S.-China trade war – and any tête-à-tête between Presidents Trump and Xi Jinping at the upcoming G-20 meeting in Argentina – China’s urban middle class is set to become a major driver of the global economy. And a major force in the wider world. If you trust Chinese government figures, the middle class already tops 400 million, larger than the entire U.S. population. Even if you cut that … [Read more...] about Rubin: China’s future weapon vs. the U.S.: Its growing middle class
