Parents under fire for making their mentally-retarded daughter be a child for forever.
"Three years ago, when Ashley began to display early signs of puberty, her parents instructed doctors to remove her uterus, appendix and still-forming breasts, then treat her with high doses of estrogen to stunt her growth.
In other words, Ashley was sterilized and frozen in time, for ever to remain a child. She was only 6 years old. Afflicted with a severe brain impairment known as static encephalopathy, she cannot walk, talk, keep her head up in bed, or even swallow food. Her parents argued that "keeping her small" was the best way to improve the quality of her life, not to make life more convenient for them.
By remaining a child, they say, Ashley will have a better chance of avoiding everything from bed sores to pneumonia — and the removal of her uterus means that she will never have a menstrual cycle or risk developing uterine cancer."
Do you agree or disagree with their actions? Why?

When spring arrives, we are going to adopt a puppy. The only problem is that I haven't decided on a breed (mixed or not, still need an idea of what we're after)...what kind of dog would be right for our situation:
We live in an apartment (large) with a weight limit (60lbs, but I might be willing to go bigger for the right dog, the apartment isn't strict at all, I'd just rather stick to the lease), but live in the middle of a huge park (we spend lots of time outside)
No yippie dogs
When I was growing up, we had dogs but none were trained well (if at all)...I want to be able to teach our dog good habits. Especially regarding potty training, obviously...I'm not one of those people who find pee on my carpet endearing. Can anyone point me towards some puppy training resources online?
What about links to training resources for older dogs specifically. We might end up adopting an older dog, because I turn to goo in the humane society, lol.
i used photoshop six years ago in high school to create labels and tshirts in a graphic design class.
well i have ps elements 5.0 now. it's way different (and so much more complicated).
what do you suggest for a book or online tutorial to help me out? i need something comprehensive..from making things like tshirts to editing photos..
So, I just got my first Hydro (electric) bill since my tenant moved in (yes, THAT tenant - the one with the loud boyfriend) Imagine my shock when the bill was DOUBLE what it was this time last year!!! Especially because last year, there were 5 people living here, and now it's (supposed to be) only 3!! And that's not because of rate increases, the average kWh/day is nearly double as well.
So I went to talk to the tenant about it this morning- she wasn't home. I could hear her stereo was on, though (and it is nearly every day). She came home about 7:00 this evening, and I went to talk to her about it. I mentioned that one reason might be the fact that she always leaves her stereo and lights on when she leaves the house. Her response was that it takes more power to turn something on and off than it would to just leave it on.
So, is she right? I'm sure it would depend on how long it's left on, but can anyone provide me with how much energy it takes to power something up/down? Just a general idea, or even a site where you can figure stuff like that out would be awesome.
So, is this really a stupid and ridiculous idea?
1 - Are you sick right now? Or in recovery?
2 - Do you/did you have the viral sore throat that is "going around"?
3 - how long is it lasting/did it last?
4 - How did you treat it?
5 - Is there any hope for me? I've been sick since New Years Eve. :(
