Should The U.S. Adopt Finland’s ‘Baby Box’ For New Parents?

When it comes to maternity leave, The United States earns a pretty dismal ranking when compared to other countries, being the only first-world country, and one of only three countries (the others being Lesotho, Swaziland and Papua New Guinea) that does not offer paid maternity leaves. Not only do other countries have better systems in place for maternity leave, but they have some pretty great welcoming gifts for their newest citizens. In Finland, for example, new parents can choose between receiving the above maternity package filled with essentials for baby's first few months or a tax-free lump sum of 140 euros as a maternity grant.

With more and more children being identified to have this neurological disorder, the need for additional research, education and other resources becomes more and more necessary.

Shay Shares Her Reasons for Supporting St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital

As I sit here on the eve of our St. Jude Children's Research Hospital Radiothon I am thinking about how I will tell everyone just how great this hospital and it's people are. It's actually hard to put it into words; I wish I could just take everyone there for one day to experience it for themselves. If I could do that we would never have to ask for money again it would just be something everyone would do without prompting. However, I can't do that so I'll try to give you a reason or two here, as to why I think this is the best charity to donate your hard earned money to.

iPhone App “Rethink Breast Cancer” Uses Hot Men to Remind Women to Get Mammograms

Most of you know that I was diagnosed with breast cancer just one year ago. I went in for my first ever mammogram at the age of 40, that led to a sonogram, another mammogram and finally a biopsy that determined the lump in my left breast was cancerous. Maybe if I had had this app and video I would have gotten my mammogram earlier.
