Sometimes, Ellis Glover would be forced to leave her friends and sit at a lunch table where no one was eating peanut butter and jelly sandwiches."I wanted to sit with my good, good friends, but I couldn't," the 10-year-old said. "If you're a kid and you have a food allergy, it's harder on you. You're missing out on a lot of stuff other children can have. I always want to try peanut stuff."Mom Monica Glover said the family discovered Ellis' peanut allergy when she was about 3. The tipoff: a skin reaction around her mouth after she was given food with a small amount of peanuts in it. "We were lucky to have discovered it that way. That was a mild reaction," Glover said, and a doctor confirmed the allergy through tests.The discovery was "distressing," Glover said. Accidental exposure to peanuts has happened, resulting in "severe stomach cramps and vomiting," she said.

Test out of college
A STUDENT has claimed she was thrown out of class after saying she “loved” EDL founder Tommy Robinson. Cook-Gray, 17, was left in tears after teachers at Total People college in Crewe, allegedly said her views on the Islamophobic football thug were not welcome in their classroom. The teen said: "The tutor said that they were giving me a final warning for being too right wing without even giving me a verbal or written warning first. "I feel like free speech is going out the window." Robinson is no stranger to controversy and is known for his anti-Islamic views. He has been arrested for crimes including punching an off duty police officer, common assault, passport fraud, football violence and mortgage fraud.

Nick Baumgardner Detroit Free Press Published 6:02 AM EDT Sep 24, 2018 There's a narrative that makes its way into my inbox or Twitter feed any time Michigan lines up against a team with athletes on the edge. Perhaps some older fans are holding onto memories of Donovan McNabb shredding the Wolverines back in the 90s. Or Vince Young doing his thing nearly 15 years ago. Either way, the "Michigan's defense struggles with athletic teams" thing gets kicked around here and there. In the Don Brown era, the one that matters right now, this is false. And one of the reasons it continues to be false is because of Brown's inside linebacker Devin Bush Jr. Michigan's had its fits against crazy athletes during Brown's tenure, sure. Saquon Barkley was really good against the Wolverines last year. He's really good against everyone. J.T. Barrett had his share of plays on the ground. But no player in Big Ten history finished a career with more yards than he did. Against most … [Read more...] about Michigan film study: Devin Bush Jr. playing out of his mind
