ATHENS -- A new University of Georgia study suggests that health agencies investigating salmonella illnesses should consider untreated surface water as a possible source of contamination.

Did you know that newborn babies have many teeth already formed and hidden from view in their jawbones? The first of these teeth (the four front teeth) usually come in around 6 months of age, and most children have a full set of primary teeth by the time they're 3 years old.

They can be forgiven for not knowing that this mistaken notion is only about 50 years old, prior to which people understood that while children should be taught that certain consequences follow certain behaviors, their discipline was not properly accomplished in that fashion, but rather through proper adult leadership.
