NICEVILLE -- A report of children screaming inside an apartment on 26th Street on Sept. 30 led to the discovery of two infants who had been left home alone, according to a Niceville Police Department arrest report. The children were both under the age of 2.
Police officers found a scrap of paper with a cell phone number on it and called that number. A man answered and handed the phone to Jeannine Nicole Urias, the report said.
The 27-year-old woman told the officer she was on her way, the report said.
When she arrived at the apartment, she told police she had left the children alone so that she could go to a neighbor’s house and “engage in narcotic use,” the report said...
Yale Psychology Professor Paul Bloom finds the origins of morality in infants
Morality is not just something that people learn, argues Yale psychologist Paul Bloom: It is something we are all born with. At birth, babies are endowed with compassion, with empathy, with the beginnings of a sense of fairness. It is from these beginnings, he argues in his new book Just Babies, that adults develop their sense of right and wrong, their desire to do good — and, at times, their capacity to do terrible things. Bloom answered questions recently from Mind Matters editor Gareth Cook.
What are the first signs of morality in babies?
The earliest signs are the glimmerings of empathy and compassion—pain at the pain of others, which you can see pretty soon after birth. Once they’re capable of coordinated movement, babies will often try to soothe others who are suffering, by patting and stroking.

Medscape Medical NewsCough, Cold Medicines Harming Fewer Infants, Toddlers
November 11, 2013
After voluntary market withdrawal by manufacturers in 2007 of over-the-counter (OTC) cough and cold medicines for children younger than 2 years, and a relabeling a year later, emergency department (ED) visits related to these drugs declined among children younger than 3 years, according to an article published online November 11 in Pediatrics.
Unsupervised ingestions, however, still account for most ED visits resulting from cough and cold medicines among children younger than 3 years, researchers report.
Lee M. Hampton, MD, from the Division of Healthcare Quality Promotion, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Atlanta, Georgia, and colleagues analyzed data from the National Electronic Injury Surveillance System–Cooperative Adverse Drug Event Surveillance project for the years 2004 through 2011. A total of 58 general and 5 pediatric hospitals contribute data to the project, making it a nationally representative sample.
Between 2004 and 2011, an estimated 61,168 adverse drug events (ADEs) occurred as a result of cough and cold medicines among children younger than 12 years (95% confidence interval [CI], 47,139 - 75,196). Cough and cold medicines were the only drugs implicated in 93.4% of visits (95% CI, 91.6% - 95.3%), and OTC cough and cold medicines accounted for 76.6% of visits.
The vast majority (89.7%) of patients were released from the emergency department or left against physician recommendation (95% CI, 84.5% - 95.0%). For 16.2% of patients, physicians documented performing gastric decontamination.
Among children younger than 2 years, ED visits for ADEs resulting from cough and cold medicines decreased 41%, dropping from 4.1% of all ADE visits before market withdrawal to 2.4% of all ADE visits afterward (difference in proportion, −1.7%; 95% CI, −2.7% to −0.6%). In addition, ED visits for ADEs resulting from cough and cold medicines decreased from 9.5% of all ADE visits before the labeling revisions to 6.5% afterward (−3.0%; 95% CI, −5.4% to −0.6%) among children aged 2 to 3 years.
Notably, unsupervised ingestions still accounted for 64.3% of ADE ED visits resulting from cold and cough medicines (95% CI, 51.1% - 77.5%) among children younger than 2 years after withdrawal and for 88.8% (95% CI, 83.8% - 93.8%) among children aged 2 to 3 years after labeling changes.
The researchers found no significant changes for older children, and they advise against drawing causal relationships between the decrease in ED visits after supervised ingestion and market withdrawal and relabeling: "ED visit data cannot differentiate the effects of the market withdrawal and the labeling revision announcement from the effects of the media attention and public education efforts that accompanied them," the researchers write.
They conclude, "Although progress has been made in reducing ADE ED visits from supervised administrations of [cough and cold medicines], more remains to be done to decrease all types of [cough and cold medicines] ADEs among children. Addressing unsupervised ingestions has the greatest potential for further reductions in [cough and cold medicines] ADEs."

The foreskin is separated from the glans. To do this, a dorsal slit in the foreskin is frequently employed. The bell of the Gomco clamp is placed over the glans, and the foreskin is pulled over the bell.
