Mr. Twister


- Вот ты всегда говоришь: кто рано встаёт, тому бог подаёт. Поэтому я сегодня встала раньше всех и помолилась Богу.
- Что же ты попросила у Бога, дитя моё?
- Чтобы вы все поскорее проснулись.

Chicago Tribune -- Illinois child welfare officials are praising a change that allows pediatricians across the country to develop an expertise in abuse and neglect. More than 200 physicians nationwide took the exam, and the first certificates are expected to be issued in January, said Dr. Gail McGuinness, executive vice president of the pediatric board. McGuinness said child abuse pediatricians will be able to consult on complicated cases, teach the discipline in medical schools and advance research in the area.

Cook County Public Guardian Robert Harris, whose office represents thousands of state wards in juvenile court, said the change is a leap forward in protecting the state's most vulnerable children. "There have been instances where people not familiar with child abuse miss (it). If they had someone on staff that had that kind of specialty, they may not have missed it," Harris said.
