Want a Brighter Baby? Feed on Demand, Not on a Schedule

Want a Brighter Baby? Feed on Demand, Not on a Schedule

Originally posted on Health & Family:

So much of the battle over infant feeding plays out over breast versus bottle that there’s precious little time left to focus on another area marked by its own share of controversy: do you feed baby on demand or on schedule?

It may depend on whose needs are being prioritized — baby’s or mom’s. New research in the European Journal of Public Health finds that infants fed whenever they seem hungry wind up as better students who score higher on tests, including ones that measure IQ. Meanwhile, mothers who feed their babies on a schedule indicate they feel better and more confident about themselves than moms who feed on demand.

One dead after ‘jealous ex opened fire at wedding’

A man has died and two more are injured after a man thought to be a jealous ex-lover opened fire at a wedding.

The gunman allegedly went to the wedding in Newtownbutler, Northern Ireland, this afternoon with the aim of shooting the groom, but apparently missed his target, hitting another wedding guest instead. Another man was also shot and a third was stabbed.

And a man in his sixties died after being flown to hospital by emergency helicopter while the two injured men are being treated.

‘According to reports it seems that a jealous man who had previously been going out with the bride turned up to try and shot the groom,’ Sinn Fein councillor Thomas O’Reilly told the Irish Mirror.

‘He missed the groom but shot the man standing beside him.

Captain of Costa Concordia jailed for 16 years after being found guilty of manslaughter

Captain of Costa Concordia jailed for 16 years after being found guilty of manslaughter

Francesco Schettino attends his trial at the Grosseto court, Italy, Wednesday, Feb. 11, 2015. Whatever verdict is delivered in the trial of the Italian sea captain for the shipwreck of the Costa Concordia cruise liner and for the deaths of 32 people, survivors and victims' families already are wondering if justice will be done. The trial, expected to bring a verdict this week, has a sole defendant. Francesco Schettino is accused of causing the shipwreck on the night of Jan. 13, 2012, when he steered too close to a tiny Tuscan island, smashing into a granite reef that sliced open the hull, sending seawater rushing in.

The captain of the Costa Concordia has been found guilty of manslaughter and jailed for 16 years by an Italian court.

32 people died in the 2012 ferry sinking in Italy with Francesco Schettino at the helm.

Prosecutors accused him of being an ‘idiot’ whose decisions lead to the sinking of the ship, while Mr Schettino claimed he is a ‘scapegoat’ who has been wrongfully blamed for the disaster.

The 54-year-old is expected to appeal the decision.

The Italian media were quick to dub him ‘captain coward’ after it was reported that he abandoned the ship before many of the passengers, going against maritime tradition.

Shocking CCTV footage of paramedic with hands in pockets as heart attack victim lay dying outside NHS hospital

Shocking CCTV footage of paramedic with hands in pockets as heart attack victim lay dying outside NHS hospital

Originally posted on Metro:

This is the shocking moment a gormless paramedic stood with his hands in his pockets as a heart attack victim lay dying outside an NHS hospital because he thought the man was drunk.

Matthew Geary was handed an suspended eight-month prison term after failing to provide any help to the patient despite seeing him stumble and fall to the ground.

CCTV footage played to Wolverhampton Crown Court showed Geary leaving Carl Cope collapsed in the road.

Geary, who has since resigned from West Midlands Ambulance Service, then went inside Walsall Manor Hospital to summon security staff.

The 36-year-old, of Manor Avenue, Great Wyrley, Staffordshire, pleaded guilty at an earlier hearing to breaching health and safety laws by failing to conduct a proper examination of Mr Cope or to attempt prompt resuscitation.

Carl Cope (L) collapses outside the A&E at Walsall Manor Hospital - Paramedic Matt Geary can be seen (White Shirt).  The final moments of Bloxwich man Carl Cope have been released as a paramedic is sentenced for health and safety offences for failing to examine or resuscitate him.  See NTI story NTIDEAD.  CCTV footage shows the shocking lack of care shown by Matt Geary ø who stands with his hands in his pockets - as Carl dies of a heart attack right in front of him.  Geary and his colleague were called when Carl dialled 999 after collapsing on a grass verge on Hawbush Road ø not far from his home address ø at around 10.15am on 23 June 2012.  Geary ø who was responsible for determining the course of treatment for Carl ø took him to Walsall Manor Hospital accident and emergency department.  Footage from the hospital waiting room shows Carl struggling to make himself comfortable and visibly in a lot of pain. After seven minutes, he goes to a nearby shop to get a drink.  On his way back through the car park ø in full view of Geary who is sat inside his ambulance ø Carl is seen collapsing outside the hospital doors.  Geary (pictured below) watches from the ambulance as Carl remains on the ground for more than 30 seconds.  Struggling to his feet, Carl only manages a few steps before collapsing for a second - and last - time.  Geary, fully aware he brought Carl to the hospital suffering from chest pains, is finally seen on CCTV going to his patient.  He takes no equipment with him and stands over Carl, with his hands in his pockets, talking to him for two minutes. Geary takes a closer look at Carl and then wrongly asks the hospital security to deal with him, before returning to his ambulance.  When the security guard is seen arriving five minutes later, Carl Cope did not appear to be showing any signs of life.  A post mortem revealed Carl (pictured right) died of a heart attack.
