On Aging with Dr. Roger Branch Sr.:End times -- Taking care of business

"In this life, two things are certain - death and taxes." This familiar saying is correct, but I can name other certainties, good and bad. The issue of taxes is constantly discussed but never solved. Death, which is more certain than taxes, is mentioned less often.

One sky to shelter us all

Like a blackboard on the first day of school, the night sky is flat and clean and dark. So very dark. The stars are strung from one horizon to the other in irregular clusters that - even to my own untrained eyes - look like pictures. Not archers and scales, but front-end loaders and salad tongs.

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond: Like, take away the smart phone

Q: Our 15-year-old daughter has become, over the past year or so, quite a disruptive influence in our normally peaceful home. She was a gem until she entered high school when she almost overnight become disrespectful and combatively argumentative. If she disagrees with a decision we make, she will begin screaming at us, calling us names, and the like. Despite the fact that her face is in her smart phone almost constantly, her grades at the secular private school she attends are still good to excellent and she's not, to our knowledge, hanging with a bad peer group.
