REDWOOD CITY — Kevin Durant, during a visit to this after-school hangout, began asking students what they want to do in life.

He could have told her to chase her dreams. Instead, he simply nodded along as if her plan were already in motion. “Yeah, I can see you there,” Durant told her. It was the best thing he could have said. “Because nobody has ever told me my idea was actually good before,” Alysia said.

THERE are few things that shock Judge Rinder. From money laundering to international fraud, the criminal barrister turned TV judge has worked on some eye-opening legal battles. But he was horrified to learn that 400,000 British children do not have a bed of their own to sleep in. Judge Rinder says: “It’s a number that in the First World — in an advanced economy — should make us all think, ‘How can we solve this?’ If it doesn’t make you ask that question, you’ve got a problem. “When I first heard the figure, it gripped me. It made me want to be a part of the community determined to make a change.” That is why the 39-year-old Sun columnist is backing our Beds for Kids campaign to support desperate families. Alongside Dreams Beds and charity Buttle UK’s Chances for Children campaign, we are asking YOU to help raise money for those youngsters who do not have a bed. Without somewhere to get a good night’s sleep, a … [Read more...] about Half a million British children don’t have their own bed so help us change that with our Beds For Kids campaign

By The Washington Post | PUBLISHED: April 25, 2018 at 7:58 am | UPDATED: April 25, 2018 at 7:59 am By Cleve R. Wootson Jr. | The Washington Post As 4-year-0ld Elianna Grace sat in the back seat of the SUV, battling her second fever in three days, her mom flashed back to the coughing and vomiting fit the preschooler had the previous weekend – and to a niggling fear about the girl’s sudden illness. Elianna had spent April 14 playing in her grandparents’ pool in Bradenton, Florida. She blew a geyser of water at family members with a pool noodle. One of them tried to spray her back, but Elianna was already inhaling and got a mouth full of water. The preschooler coughed, vomited and retched for the next few minutes, her mother, Lacey Grace, told The Washington Post, trying to expel a lung- and a stomachful of chlorinated water. But half an hour later, Elianna was happily splashing in the pool. The next day, she seemed fine on a shopping trip with mommy. The crisis … [Read more...] about She read about a 4-year-old’s mysterious death. A year later, it saved her own daughter’s life.
