Children of imprisoned mothers generally have insecure relationships with their mothers and caregivers, according to a new study published in the May/June issue of the journal Child Development.

The study, conducted by researchers from the University of Wisconsin, assessed how children thought and felt about their close relationships and family experiences in 54 children ranging from 2 ½ to 7 ½ years old whose mothers were imprisoned. Most of the children lived with their grandparents.

Members of law enforcement, Child Protective Services and the Sacramento County Probation Department conducted a truancy sweep Thursday. The goal was to get children back in school.

Officials visited the homes of parents whose children haven't been showing up for school. They called it a "knock and talk." Officers warned parents that if their child continued to be truant, arrest warrants could be issued. Authorities said they are trying to make a difference.

Like the growing numbers passing through social services each month, Crowe is up against a wall that is a distinct structure of the poor. By losing her home, she's lost the privilege of choice.

Jolly said DSS does not place people but rather determines what rent amount they are entitled to. The agency will find them a home, he said. But people are free to search for an apartment on their own, as long as it does not cost more than the rent voucher. Crowe found an apartment in Middletown that was $114 per month more than the $735 that DSS allotted her.

The Mesa Police Department is looking to add some primal instinct to its SWAT team. And to do that, it's looking to a monkey.

"Everybody laughs about it until they really start thinking about it," said Mesa Officer Sean Truelove, who builds and operates tactical robots for the suburban Phoenix SWAT team. "It would change the way we do business." The department is seeking about $100,000 in federal grant money to put the idea to use in Mesa SWAT operations. The monkey, which costs $15,000, is what Truelove envisions as the ultimate SWAT reconnaissance tool.

A plan to tighten rules on vitamins and food supplements should be stopped, a leading European judge has indicated.

European Court of Justice Advocate General Leendert Geelhoed said the EU health foods directive infringed guidelines in his opinion. But he said he was not opposed to the legislation in principle - opening the way for officials to redraw it. The court has to make a final decision on the rules, which critics say will ban thousands of health foods.

Hard-core heroin users began lining up this week in Vancouver to participate in a pioneering study where researchers will provide them with free heroin.

The study, known as the North American Opiate Maintenance Project (NAOMI), won final approval Monday from Health Canada. Moving quickly, researchers this week began the process of selecting 158 participants, 88 who will receive free heroin and 70 -- the control group -- who will get methadone. The NAOMI project is slated to expand to Toronto and Montreal later this year. In all, some 450 heroin users will participate in the one-year pilot project. At the end of the study period, the doses of heroin will tail off. The study is designed to see whether heroin is more effective than methadone in getting users who have proven resistant to other therapies to quit using. While similar projects have taken place in Switzerland and the Netherlands, the NAOMI project marks the first attempt to provide heroin maintenance therapy to drug users in North America.

For nearly 20 years, federal judges have been sentencing defendants to sentences beyond the statutory maximum based on findings of fact never considered by a jury.

Under sentencing laws adopted as "reforms" in the 1980s, judges could use a lower standard of proof than required to convict defendants to find that they had, for example, trafficked in a certain quantity of drugs or embezzled a certain amount of money, and use those findings to add years to their sentences. In part because of the federal sentencing guidelines scheme, in the intervening period federal prison populations have swollen dramatically, with a majority of those prisoners being drug offenders.

Based on alleged secret European military reports, the U.S. military in Iraq is harvesting and selling human organs.

Secret European military intelligence reports indicate the transformation of the American humanitarian mission in Iraq into a profitable trade in the American markets through the practice of American physicians extracting human organs from the dead and wounded, before they are put to death, for sale to medical centers in America.
