Death sentences actually cost more than life sentences due to all the appeals. I wonder if solitary confinement has caused the "apathy" that people have commented on in terms of Tsarnaev's appearance more »

There are plenty of good alternatives other than Harvard, which would be affordable for this woman, including schools in Canada. I am suspicious of someone using homelessness as a teenager to get in, more »

Federal law guarantees symmetry for women with breast cancer, apart from medical concerns (which include limitations of mammograms). That said, the number of surgeries, risk, time and expense in recon more »

Type 1 diabetes has to be the most misunderstood disease, and it is nice to see an article that specifies "type 1." All the generic articles on "diabetes" regarding diet and lifestyle etc. fail to spe more »

Breastfeeding does not ordinarily hurt. Just hope that expectant mothers won't read this article and get the wrong idea. more »

And how do conservative Republicans propose to ensure that people with "preexisting conditions" have health insurance? more »

We hope an implantable pump becomes an option for type 1. We have read about U.S. citizens with type 1 who fly to France every three months to refill an earlier version of the implantable pump, which more »

I am glad she mentioned the street. Harassment on street and on public transportation is still a big problem and there seems to be no way to address it.

Why can't any drug company come up with and the FDA approve an injectable device for glucagon for the kind of severe hypoglycemia suffered by people on insulin? My child has type 1 diabetes and can d more »

We need to stop pushing everyone to go to college, and employers need to go back to requiring a degree only when crucial to the job, which would not be often.

This article is just plain silly.

For those with kids with preexisting conditions that are chronic, the Affordable Care Act is a godsend.
And I hope states that did not extend Medicaid change their minds at some point.

If Republican-led states had cooperated more with the implementation of the Affordable Care Act, perhaps the polls numbers would be better. Of course the website disaster and enrollment challenges are more »

Those who report a family to DCF cannot be sued. Big problem.

Children's files a lot of 51A's with DCF. It is important to realize that this case was not unusual at the outset, but has become unusual as it evolves and in the amount of media attention it has rece more »

In "The Smartest Kids in the World", there is a description of a kind of pillow that South Korean students wear on their arms during daytime school, so they can sleep. Their real academic work happens more »

If only all doctors could experience this and other strange sensations, that some patients have, not for one night, but indefinitely. Many patients give up and don't go to the doctor at all after a fe more »

From the vantage point of a layperson and parent of grown children, I think giftedness is a more complicated phenomenon than this article would indicate. For instance, some gifted kids will take longe more »

I hope the mayor reads this and gets it.

Young females are often harassed on public transportation. This isn't covered in the media much, but it happens every day. And some harassers are dangerous rather than merely bothersome. As for using more »

These ideas ignore how children really learn. Children learn at different rates developmentally, in the younger grades,and the brain needs rest in order to consolidate learning- including time to play more »

These kids are growing up with a focus on getting in, and when they do get in, they can suffer depression. They are raised to be always thinking about a resume and some future achievement and don't kn more »

Hormonal cycles affect many conditions, and also may affect medication effectiveness. It is understandable that men are easier to study, but this also means that all women should be careful and start more »

I didn't say she doesn't have mitochondrial disorder. People who are ill can have several things going on at once. Some of the symptoms, even apparently minor ones (red lines on skin) mentioned in the more »
