The pacifier. Despite its name, the small plastic plug seems to rile up controversy rather than calm it.   PLUG OF WAR - Who would think a small plastic plug could be at the center of such a heated debate on child rearing? CNS Photo by K.C. Alfred. Yes, even the cute ones adorned with Winnie the Pooh. Just drop the topic into conversation at a social gathering of parents and watch battle lines be drawn. There ...

The local newspaper in my hometown, Frederick, Md., has just hired a college student, Kathy Carson, to do an occasional column on life as she sees it from the perspective of a 21-year-old. The other day, she zeroed in on baby boomers, deploring the fact that "people focus too much on trying to stay young." That's true enough, even though the quest for eternal youth is certainly not a new goal. Five hundred years ago, ... [full story]

It wouldn't work for everyone, but Gary and Margi Schmidt have found the ideal caregiving solution for themselves and their parents.

With the money from the sale of two four-bedroom homes, they were able to pay cash for the hacienda, big enough to provide ... [full story]

Q: We have noticed that our old Saint Bernard mix does not seem to want to play as much as he used to when he was much younger. He seems to be stiff when he first gets up and often seems to be sore over his lower back when we try to help him. Is it likely that he has a real back problem or is just getting old and lazy? If the problem is ... [full story]

In contract law a “mistake” is an erroneous belief, at the time of contracting, that certain facts are true.  A “unilateral mistake” is where only one party to a contract is mistaken.  The courts will uphold such a contract unless the non-mistaken party was aware of the mistake and tried to take advantage of it. This rule of law seeks to avoid harm to an innocent party acting in good faith. It applies to all ... [full story]

PARK CITY, Utah - My hands clutched the bars tightly with great trepidation as I lifted up into the blue skies, my hair blowing freely against the soothing wind, a relief on this hot summer day. I must have been several hundred feet above the ground by now. The only comfort was the cushioning of the greenery that appeared to wrap around me as my chairlift reached the top of the mountain. This was nothing ... [full story]

WHISTLER, British Columbia - Bears and skiing do not go together. Then why is that 200-pound, black, furry creature climbing a trail at western Canada's Whistler Ski Resort? Because this is summer and in summer, Whistler has bears.   STEPPING SAFELY - The Hortsman Glacier on Blackcomb Mountain is the site for summer hikes in Canada's Whistler Ski Resort.

A chemical slurry of hormones, antibiotics, caffeine and steroids is coursing down many U.S. rivers and setting off ecological alarms.

When it came to ordering the Burger King Quad Stacker, many questions popped into my mind. Would the slim woman behind the counter be able to carry the jumbo burger? Might the dining table collapse under its weight? Would a surgeon general's warning be printed on the wrapper?   FAST-FOOD MENUS - What's happening to the all-American burger? It seems to be taking on a physical attribute of many Americans these days: It won't stop growing. ... [full story]
