A spokesman for the Administration for Child Services responded Wednesday to criticism of the agency, after the deaths of multiple children at homes that were at one time probed by the agency.

He said it's important to understand that it takes multiple government factions -- and ultimately a judge -- to determine custody of a child in New York City, amid an average of 55,000 reports of child abuse per year. The most recent death was that of 1-year-old Bianca Abdul, who, according to police, was found unconscious inside a home in Midland Beach by her mother. Family told police there hadn't been heat in the home since November, and at one point a 12-year-old girl had been temporarily removed from the home, according to a NYPD spokeswoman.

To protect children from the people who are paid to care for them, the General Assembly this month passed a bill that will crack open confidential files at the Kentucky Cabinet for Health and Family Services for prospective employers.

Senate Bill 236 will allow parents hiring babysitters - and it will require public schools and publicly funded youth camps hiring anyone who will work with minors - to ask job applicants for a letter from the cabinet that shows if they are one of the 92,418 people who presently have a "substantiated finding" of child abuse or neglect, as determined by a child protection caseworker. The bill prohibits schools and camps from hiring people who have such a black mark.

The record-breaking heat that made 2016 the hottest year ever recorded has continued into 2017, pushing the world into "truly uncharted territory", according to the World Meteorological Organisation.

Global warming is largely being driven by emissions from human activities, but a strong El Niño - a natural climate cycle - added to the heat in 2016. The El Niño is now waning, but the extremes continue to be seen, with temperature records tumbling in the US in February and polar heatwaves pushing ice cover to new lows.

If you've ever been visited by Child Protective Services, you know just how stressful and distressing it can feel. Even the best of parents can get frazzled when someone with the legal authority to take aware their kids is present.

Unfortunately, unless your civil rights are violated, you likely won't have any legal claim against Child Protective Services stemming from the agency's, or its representatives', routine actions. So, you likely won't be able to sue for emotional distress. However, when civil rights are violated, individuals can sue CPS, and these claims can be costly for cities.

A Democratic-sponsored bill that would set goals for reducing Texas child welfare workers' caseloads is laudable but needs more careful consideration, two key Republican writers of House social services policy said Monday.

Houston Democratic Rep. Armando Walle's measure would double-down on state GOP leaders' recent approval of 829 new positions at beleaguered Child Protective Services. The bill would encourage CPS to hire 893 more employees over the next two years and create an additional 825 slots at sister agencies such as Adult Protective Services, Child Care Licensing and the unit that operates the protective services department's hotline for reporting abuse, the Legislative Budget Board has estimated.

It has been known for years that marijuana is effective in alleviating the symptoms associated with multiple sclerosis, HIV/AIDS, chemotherapy-induced nausea, and intractable pain. Research dating back to the 1980's found that medical cannabis could help.

More recently, the use of medical cannabis in children with severe forms of epilepsy has received a great deal of attention. The American public became aware of this application for cannabis when Dr. Sanjay Gupta's documentary, "Weed," was broadcast on CNN in August of 2013. The documentary featured the case of Charlotte Figi of Colorado, a five-year-old suffering from Dravet's Syndrome, a treatment-resistant genetic disorder characterized by nearly constant seizures.

Bills are "killing" us, and we try to save both energy and money for the well-being of everybody. Old-fashioned light bulbs were replaced with eco-friendly energy saving light bulbs.

If you break one of these indoors, the bulb will release 20 times the maximum allowed mercury concentration in the air. This was confirmed by a group of researchers at the Fraunhofer Wilhelm Klauditz Institute who did a study for the needs of the German's Federal Environment Agency.

Every pet owner knows that our four-legged family members can be expensive to care for, especially when it comes to vet bills. While we know that our companions are worth the cost.

Devon Mathis, R-Visalia, introduced Assembly Bill 942 on Thursday to give pet owners a break on vaccinations, check-ups, surgeries, x-rays, prescriptions and other medical-related expenses for their four-legged friends. The tax credit is limited to healthcare costs for dogs and cats.

Over the past couple of years, I had the unpleasant experience of having bloodwork done to confirm that I am gluten intolerant, only to have it come back and say, "Nope, you're just crazy."

It's happened to scores of other people, who pass the test for the anti-gliadin antibodies but still know that their health issues directly correlate with what they eat. Now we may know why. The tests were right. I'm not gluten intolerant. I'm poison intolerant.
