Every year, an average of 37 children die from being locked inside a hot car in the U.S.  Since 1994, 804 children have died from heat-related illnesses in cars, according to Kids and Cars, an advocacy center that conducts research on car-related dangers surrounding children.


It’s heartbreaking—an unspeakable tragedy that could be avoided.  When we hear stories of infants and toddlers dying in their car seats, while parents leave them unattended for hours, we think, “How could anyone possibly forget their child?”


Well, as crazy as it sounds, it happens.  In approximately 55 percent of cases, the parent was unaware the child was in the vehicle.  So maybe the question should be, “How can I prevent this from happening?”


According to Kids and Cars, forgetting there is a child in the back seat is more common that many realize.   When you’re stressed or lost in thought, you tend to function in “automatic pilot.”  If dropping a child off to daycare is out of your norm, and the child is quiet, you may forget.


Kids and Cars is hoping Congress will soon implement mandatory regulations in all America passenger cars. The Hot Cars Act of 2017 seeks to install visual and auditory cues in cars to signal to a parent when a child is in the backseat before the driver exits the vehicle.


Until that happens, there is plenty we can do to insure that our children remain safe.  Regardless of the weather, there is so much that can go wrong that leaving a child alone in a car is never a good idea.  They could accidentally put the car in drive, escape and get lost, hit or abducted, or get their fingers caught in the automatic window.


Here are safety tips for parents to consider:


•Don't leave your child in a car, which can quickly heat up, especially on a hot, sunny day.


•Always lock your car and secure the keys so that your kids can't get to them at home.


•Warn your kids about playing in the car by themselves without adult supervision.


•Install a trunk release mechanism, so that they can't get trapped in the trunk.


•Make sure that child care providers and day care workers have a plan to ensure kids aren't left in their cars or vans.


•Put a purse or briefcase in the back seat with your child so you’ll have to look behind you.

•Use reminder apps and sensor devices in addition to safety tips and common sense—not to replace them.


Having a child die in a car due to heat exhaustion is something that should never happen.  And with a little preparation to keep you aware of your precious loved one’s whereabouts, it won’t.



Fred Price Jr. Steps Down

Friday, July 07, 2017

On June 25, 2017, Fred K.C. Price Jr., senior pastor of the 28,000-member Crenshaw Christian Center megachurch in Los Angeles, announced he was stepping down.


Members still don’t have a clue as to what led to this decision, other than Price saying it was due to "personal misjudgments." 


CCC official Tamara Taylor told the Christian Post last week, “Well, we know what you know. That's what he said to us. As long as he told us it was personal misjudgment we really shouldn't speculate." 


Price Jr. took over the helms of the church 8 years with the blessing of his father, Apostle Frederick K.C. Price III. who founded it in 1973.


Standing with his wife Angel in front of his shocked congregation, Price was highly emotional, as he said:


"I have struggled with and am correcting and making amends for serious personal misjudgments which have affected my life and my family and which I deeply regret. I have betrayed the trust of God, my family and you my church and for that I am so sorry. Therefore, I'm gonna step down as pastor at this time."  He was unspecific about the admitted betrayal and asked for privacy.


Located at 7901 S. Vermont Ave., Crenshaw Christian Center was previously located at 9550 S. Crenshaw Blvd. in Inglewood, currently home of lllll.  The church moved to its sprawling campus on the old Pepperdine College site in the 1980s.


The church is bi-coastal with campuses in Los Angeles and New York.


Officials at both campuses of the megachurch insisted they were completely in the dark until Price made his statement.  Price had announced a month ago that he was going on a 3-month sabbatical. He will continue to attend church until he is “restored.” Apostle Price will take over until his son returns.


"It's news that no one predicted and it's up to each individual as to how they receive it," Crenshaw Christian Center New York hostess Karen Taylor said. "We have no idea what it is (the betrayal). What you heard him announce on Sunday is what we heard so we have no speculation and we don't speculate. We deal with truth," the Christian Post reported.

In an unprecedented show of bipartisan resistance,


45 states are refusing to hand over private voter data to Kris Kobach.


By Ari Berman, The Nation


On June 28, Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach, the vice  chair of Donald Trump’s presidential commission on “election integrity,” sent a letter to all 50 states requesting sweeping voter data, including Social Security numbers, party affiliation, criminal backgrounds, and military history.


At first, only a few states, like California, Kentucky, and Virginia, said no, denouncing the commission as “a waste of taxpayer money and a distraction from the real threats to the integrity of our elections today.” But over the holiday weekend, opposition to Kobach’s request dramatically increased from both red and blue states. 



As of Wednesday afternoon, 45 states have refused to turn over private voter data to Trump’s commission. “I’ve been studying America’s election administration since 2000, and I’ve rarely seen a firestorm like this,” wrote MIT political scientist Charles Stewart III.  


Twenty states are refusing to give Kobach any data and 25 states are handing over only limited public information on voters (a full list of the states appears below). Even Kobach couldn’t hand over Social Security numbers to himself because they’re not publicly available in Kansas. Six states have not yet responded. 


Most notable is the strong opposition from Republican secretaries of state from red states like Mississippi, Louisiana, and Arizona. Mississippi’s Delbert Hosemann told Trump and Kobach to “go jump in the Gulf of Mexico.” Louisiana’s Tom Schedler said “the President’s Commission has quickly politicized its work by asking states for an incredible amount of voter data that I have, time and time again, refused to release” and Arizona’s Michele Reagan blasted “this hastily organized experiment.”


Also notable is the opposition from members of Trump’s own election commission, like Indiana Secretary of State Connie Lawson, who said, “Indiana law doesn’t permit the Secretary of State to provide the personal information requested by Secretary Kobach,” and Maine Secretary of State Matthew Dunlap, who told Kobach, “Upon review, the request is denied.”


One member of the commission, Maryland Deputy Secretary of State Luis Borunda, has already resigned. The outpouring of bipartisan opposition shows why Trump’s sham election commission should be disbanded before it does any more damage. The commission was set up for one purpose—to spread false information about voter fraud, like Trump’s gigantic lie that millions of people voted illegally, in order to build support for policies that make it more difficult to vote. Kobach and his ilk have long advocated for suppressive policies like strict voter-ID laws, documentary proof of citizenship for voter registration and voter purges, along with weakening landmark voting-rights laws like the Voting Rights Act and National Voter Registration Act.


The commission was never going to be able to prove that millions of people voted illegally because that never happened. At most, there were a few hundred illegal votes cast in 2016. Even if this was a good-faith effort to study America’s election system, the commission won’t have access to reliable data after so many states rebelled against Kobach’s request. “Most likely, the results of low-quality matches using the voter files that do arrive will significantly overstate the amount of double voting and voting by noncitizens,” writes Charles Stewart in Politico. “If a poor match occurs, the list maintenance programs of the states will be unfairly impugned, lowering the confidence of voters for no good reason. This is why no one I have talked to who runs elections, Democrat or Republican, is happy with Kobach’s request.”


Representative Marc Veasey, co-chair of the Congressional Voting Rights Caucus, has introduced legislation to ensure that no taxpayer funds are spent on Trump’s commission. “The commission’s mission to study non-existent voter fraud cases has nothing to do with ballot security and everything to do with voter suppression and discrimination,” he said.


We need a commission to investigate the impact of Russian hacking and voter suppression on the 2016 election. We don’t need a disgraced commission on election integrity that only threatens the integrity of our elections.


The Full List:


States that won’t comply with Kobach’s request: Arizona, California, Connecticut, Delaware, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Minnesota, Mississippi, New Mexico, New York, Pennsylvania, South Dakota, Tennessee, Vermont, Virginia, Wisconsin, Wyoming.


States that will hand over only select public voter data: Alabama, Alaska, Arkansas, Colorado, Georgia, Idaho, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Michigan, Missouri, Montana, Nevada, New Hampshire, North Carolina, North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma, Oregon, Rhode Island, South Carolina, Texas, Utah, Washington, West Virginia.


States that haven’t responded yet: Florida, Hawaii, Illinois, Nebraska, New Jersey.

Combination of three plant-based nutrients found to MELT AWAY prostate cancer cells


By Mike Adams


(Natural News) A fascinating new study published in Precision Oncology has found that a combination of three plant-based nutrients “melts away” prostate cancer cells. The study, led by University of Texas researcher Stefano Tiziani, is entitled “Combinatorial treatment with natural compounds in prostate cancer inhibits prostate tumor growth and leads to key modulations of cancer cell metabolism.”


As described in the University of Texas newsletter, this breakthrough discovery allows people to “starve prostate cancer with what you eat for dinner.”


These three natural substances are:


•Ursolic acid from apple peels


•Curcumin from turmeric


•Resveratrol from red grapes


“New research from The University of Texas at Austin identifies several natural compounds found in food, including turmeric, apple peels and red grapes, as key ingredients that could thwart the growth of prostate cancer, the most common cancer afflicting U.S. men and a key area of focus during Men’s Health Month, which public health advocates celebrate in June,” reports the University of Texas in Austin.


 “Published online last week in Precision Oncology, the new paper uses a novel analytical approach to screen numerous plant-based chemicals instead of testing a single agent as many studies do, discovering specific combinations that shrink prostate cancer tumors.”


Also explained in the UT article:


The new research paper also demonstrates how the plant-based chemicals work together. Combining ursolic acid with either curcumin or resveratrol prevents cancer cells from gobbling something that they need to grow, glutamine. This is a neat solution: blocking the uptake of a nutrient needed by prostate cancer cells with nutrients that are commonly in the human diet.
