I Usually Limit My Child's Sugar, but I Let Her Eat Ice Cream Every Day in Summer

Summer is the only time of year that I let my strict "no sugar" rule slide a little bit. Full disclosure, our family is not entirely sugar-free, but we have a well-thought-out plan of how much sugar we allow and how often. My husband and I learned early on that our daughter is extremely sensitive to sugar. She experiences the sugar rushes and subsequent crashes at a magnified intensity. Even eating the natural sugars in fruit before naptime or bedtime means sleep doesn't happen, resulting in a meltdown.

Biden's attorney general can't let Trump-era abuses of powers go. Here's what he should do.

Like a multi-car pileup on the expressway, the effects of Donald Trump’s abuses of office keep being felt long after the initial bad act. And it is tempting to shrug off each new revelation given that he is out of office — but that temptation must be rejected, as the recent revelations of his administration’s clandestine surveillance of journalists and political rivals both ranks among Trump’s most egregious offenses and has far-reaching implications for American democracy.

For College Finances, There’s No ‘Return to Normal’

Igher ed is in trouble. It faces a demographic crunch in 2026, when smaller high-school graduating classes will mean greater competition for students. That will lead to tuition discounting and underenrolled classes for many colleges. And yet that demographic crisis is only one of many significant challenges the sector faces. As noted by Forbes in its annual review of college and university financials, approximately 20 percent of all institutions now warrant a “D” ranking (its lowest). Many are under serious financial strain and may not survive.

The Surprising Way Serial Killer Earle Nelson Was Caught

Yeas before the Federal Bureau of Investigation was aware of the existence of serial killers, Earle Nelson quietly became the first known serial sex murderer in America in the mid-1920s. According to Murderpedia, Earle's early years were defined by compulsive masturbation and daydreaming that made way for his life of sex crimes, which took hold when he was 21 years old. His descent into depravity and murder came after the loss of his parents at just 2 years old, and his disturbing childhood would mirror the dysfunction and chaos seen in the early years of other, similar serial killers.
