Its supporters say competitive shooting helps develop students' discipline and sportsmanship. But the sport is under increased scrutiny in the gun debate era

Sobel, Menjik and the rest of the Central Square team had driven over 200 miles through the howling winds of a nor'easter to participate in the New York Public High School Athletic Association Air Rifle Championship. Held on the campus of the US Military Academy at West Point this past Saturday, 71 shooters from across the state had gathered in a quest to be crowned New York's best. Outside, whitecaps churned across the Hudson River and snow drifts swirled in small cyclones, but inside West Point's air-rifle range the vibe was warm and familial. Parents opened coolers filled with sandwiches and soft drinks, coaches met to discuss safety and strategy, and students conquered their jitters with cell phone games. If not for the quiet, repetitive pop of the rifles, it could have been any other youth sporting event.

Should every child in California have free access to a preschool? Four of the leading gubernatorial candidates think so, making it possible that the Golden State could become the first in the nation to offer universal preschool.

"Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom, former Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa, State Treasurer John Chiang and former State Superintendent of Public Instruction Delaine Eastin all agreed that universal preschool was essential not only for children, but for the state," according to a report by edsource.org.

In what would be a significant shift from Gov. Jerry Brown's position on early education, the four leading Democratic candidates running to replace him next year say they are committed to offering universal preschool in California.

Under Gov. Brown's watch, California has increased the number of subsidized preschool and child care slots, as well as access to an early kindergarten grade called transitional kindergarten for some 4-year-olds. But much to the frustration of early education advocates, Brown has rejected pressures to expand preschool to all low-income 4-year-olds, mainly citing the costs of such an expansion as the major impediment. In a setback for advocates two years ago, Brown vetoed what was called "The Preschool for All" legislation (Assembly Bill 47).

In 2001, not long after Oklahoma had adopted one of the nation's first universal pre-K programs, researchers from Georgetown University began tracking kids who came out of the program in Tulsa, documenting their academic progress over time.

In a new report published in the Journal of Policy Analysis and Management today, researchers were able to show that Tulsa's pre-K program has significant, positive effects on students' outcomes and well-being through middle school.

So...some people actually want to be microchipped like a dog. They're lining up for it. They're having parties to get it done. It if isn't available to them, they're totally bummed out.

I'm not even going to venture into the religious aspect of having a microchip inserted into a human being. Let's just talk about the secular ramifications. Certain folks won't be happy until everyone has a computer chip implanted in them. Here's how this could go. Initially, it would be the sheep who blindly desire to be chipped for their own "convenience" leading the way. Then, it would become remarkably inconvenient not to be chipped - sort of like it's nearly impossible to not have a bank account these days. Then, the last holdouts could be forcibly chipped by law. Read on, because I could not make this stuff up.

In Egypt, a team of nine scientists from prestigious Egyptian medical schools and universities have found that one in every 50 children in America have metabolic brain disease, and it could be a result of the mercury contained in vaccines.

Mercury exposure is measured by examining children's urinary porphyrins (excreted organic compounds that are biomarkers for mercury toxicity). The presence of mercury within blood and urine exploits the well-known link with vaccines and metabolic brain disease (autism), but the severity of autism is closely linked to the levels of exposure to this harmful neurotoxin.

Wild bison grazing on sunflower-studded prairie at Rocky Mountain Arsenal National Wildlife Refuge are in business - as greeters of millions of travelers.

Federal wildlife refuge managers also this summer doubled the fenced space at the refuge, north of Denver, for their bison herd, which grew this year, with 18 calves, to a record 122. The feds plan to import 25 more genetically robust bison in October. And wild bison behavior, such as raging bulls battling for females and tearing through fences, is on the rise.

A white nationalist rally that turned violent in Charlottesville, Va., on Aug. 12 brought renewed attention to dozens of Confederate monuments around the country.

Many government officials, including Representative Nancy Pelosi of California, the House Democratic leader, have called to remove statues, markers and other monuments that celebrate controversial Civil War era figures from public grounds. There are likely hundreds of such monuments in the United States.

It was, at least in the beginning, the total incarnation of the Paradise for most of the despaired people in germany. Of course, you had to be a part of the white, ethnic-German majority proactively following the upcoming Nazi-pseudo-religion.

After the (lost) war, life continued to get worse for average people from year to year, people who witnessed at the same time the fantastic financial gains of a very small upper class, driven by available cheap labor and the mathematics of capitalism. This effect of a deep split within the society and it's interpretation was important for later, the "guilt" had been transferred entirely and exclusively to the German-Jewish upper class and eventually to any people of Jewish descent in Germany. This happened openly even through newspapers from 1933 on. Most notorious and prevalent was the infamous "Der Stürmer" publication.

More than 97,000 California public school students have been diagnosed as autistic, a number that has risen seven-fold since 2001, according to the latest special education data from the California Department of Education.

The figure represent a jump of about 6,500, or 7 percent, from 2014-15 to 2015-16. The increase was especially sharp among kindergartners, where autism cases grew by 17 percent last year. More than one of every 65 kindergartners in California public schools is classified as autistic. Since 2006, the number of autistic students statewide has risen by between 5,000 and 7,000 every year, state figures show.
