Witnesses say they heard the lady scream for help. When people showed up to help, they said the jaguar had its claws into the woman’s hand and flesh. Witnesses were trying to distract the jaguar enough to let the woman go by throwing water bottles into the cage.

Julia Ruth Stevens, the daughter of baseball legend Babe Ruth, has died suddenly at the age of 102. Julia was the last surviving daughter of Babe’s. She was adopted into the Ruth family in 1930 and she took her last breath on Saturday in an assisted living facility in Nevada. “She lived a full life and tried to do her very best to perpetuate the legacy of Babe in a positive way,” Julia’s son Tom, described his mother as “Babe’s biggest fan”. She was born in 1916 when her parents split shortly after she was born. She moved to New York with her mother Claire Hodgson, when her mother met Babe Ruth in 1923 while they were there. Julia described her childhood with Ruth one time by saying, “I have this vague image of this huge man, who was really nice, coming to visit Mother, and he’d pick me up and set me on his lap and ask me little questions about how I was. If mother and I went out with him, people just crowded around.”

There are more than 101,000 children in the United States that are waiting to get adopted.  The ages of these children range from school-aged and older.  Continue reading Does Adoption Have More Positive or Negative Effects?

Pittsburgh Shooting

A shooting in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania has left eleven dead and six injured.  This shooting took place in a synagogue called ‘Tree of Life’, during a worship practice.  This synagogue is located in what’s known as the heart of the local Jewish community. The shooter was said to be posting threats online and seemed to only target the Jews.  The last post before the shooting happened said, “HIAS likes to bring invaders in that kill our people. I can’t sit by and watch my people get slaughtered. Screw your optics, I’m going in.” The shooters name was Robert Bowers, a 46-year-old.  After having a shootout with the Pittsburgh police, Bowers surrendered after being injured and was taken into custody. During this gunfight, he told one officer: “They’re committing genocide to my people. I just want to kill Jews”. Federal prosecutors are looking to approve on the death penalty against Bowers.

Does Teen Mom/16 and Pregnant promote or prevent teen pregnancy?

Teen Mom 2/OG and 16 and Pregnant are television shows broadcasted nationally about the lives of teenage mothers and the struggles they may face. Six pregnant teenagers allowed MTV to film their pregnancies hoping to encourage the young viewers to wait to start their families. After four years of being on television, teen pregnancy rates have dropped drastically. From 2009-2010, the rates had dropped nine percent reaching a historic low of 34.3 births per 1,000 women between the ages of 15-19. This rate is higher than any other developed country, where typical rates of teen childbearing are more often in the range of 5 to 10 births per 1,000 girls in this age group and it is said that four out of five teenagers pregnancies are unintentional. Since 16 and Pregnant was first aired in the summer of 2009, it is tempting to wonder whether or not the show was responsible for this drop in teen pregnancy. This rate dropped faster in area where teenagers were watching more MTV programming. Also, many of the show’s stars became celebrities and appeared on the cover of People Magazine, which could be another problem. Teenagers are under the impression that having a child in high school is one way to get attention, and famous. “Maybe that’s what’s drawing viewers’ attention,” Teen Mom OG star, Farrah Abraham stated.

The Cincinnati Reds sent Devin Mesoraco to the New York Mets and picked up pitcher Matt Harvey. Harvey is getting a second chance, only this time with a bad team. This trade deal provided a fresh start for the two former All-Stars whose careers have been sidetracked due to injuries. Mesoraco was on the bench for first pitch by Luis Castillo, as he was originally supposed to catch. When he walked into the New York clubhouse, he was still wearing his Cincinnati Reds socks as attendants were sewing his name on the back of his Mets uniform. Mesoraco had described his experience as surreal.
