Ask Dr. Gott 4/20

DEAR DR. GOTT: Please warn women! I had one to two bladder infections a month during the years between 1996 and 2001. I was going to one of the most well-known urologists in my area. When I would go for an appointment, he would test my urine and always there were traces of blood. I would leave with a prescription for Cipro. It would clear it up until the next time.

Our Views: Reviewing campus emergency policies a good idea for GSU

The tragedy that struck Virginia Tech Monday was equally stunning in its scope and baffling in what could push someone to commit such a heinous act. The senseless rampage that left 33 people dead and about two dozen more recovering from gunshot wounds will leave an emotional scar on the Virginia Tech community long after the physical wounds heal.

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond - Tackle problems when the iron is cold

Q: Our 4-year-old daughter has a huge problem with being laughed at. She loves to be goofy and do funny things, but as soon as someone, including one of us, laughs at her, she becomes upset.

Kathy Bradley - A parade and a pyramid

Jackson is almost 4 - that age at which he understands his separateness from other people but does not yet understand the separateness of his emotions. His will is clear and distinct, but his heart is still one with the world. Whatever is happening to him, be it highest joy or deepest sorrow, is happening to the world. That thing - the filter, the wall, the individuation of identity that will eventually teach him that this is not so, that his feelings are uniquely his and that not everyone can be trusted with them - has yet to take hold.
