(Immigrants' Status in Their Home Country Strongly Related to the Educational Success of their Children in the US)
In seeking to explain why some second-generation children in the United States have higher levels of educational attainment than others, most arguments center on either cultural values or structural differences, such as class background and access to quality schools. Cynthia Feliciano of the University of California, Irvine shows that parents' status, relative to nonmigrants from their home country, is a factor. (PRWEB May 20, 2006)

(Tamiflu’s Achilles Heel – Taste Test by the International Association of Medicinal Compliance to Best Illustrate How Taste Can Influence Adherence)
The bitter taste of Tamiflu could prevent children from taking a medication that would be their first line of defense against the avian flu. The International Assocation of Medicinal Compliance will hold a Tamiflu taste test to allow members of the media to learn for themselves how palatability can affect medicinal compliance. Not following a medication's complete regimen can lead to increased spread of infection, viral mutation and consequently, unnecessary deaths, especially in the case of a pandemic.

Start Giving the Existing New Money
Even more money is flowing into the private sectors from the 2004 Job Creation Act, the 2004 Production Activities Deduction, lowest ever capital gains tax rates and the 85% dividend tax deduction. At the same time, our nation systemically has to deliver early reading skills at age 3, 4, and 5 to 100% of the children to set up the next steps in our global economic progress. Only an individual gift delivers early reading skills at age 3, 4 and 5. Giving is often more than twice blessed, while taxes are often less than once blessed. (PRWEB May 11, 2006)

Student Claims Colleges Teach Male-Discrimination
Missouri’s second largest college has been charged with teaching discrimination against men. A student says his class studied data that denigrated men, elevated women, and stereotyped the sexes in ways that were male-discriminatory. He says similar data is taught in other courses at the College, and throughout higher education as well. The College never responded to the student. The U.S. Department’s of Education and Justice have not replied to his appeals for eight and four months respectively, so the case has been appealed to Cabinet-level authority.
