I grew up in Socorro, New Mexico and spent many summers and weekends in Albuquerque visiting my grandmother, uncles, aunts and cousins. Im happy to be home covering the news that impacts New Mexicans. in Journalism and Mass Communications.

Ive worked in news behind the scenes and in front of the camera since I was a teenager. My reporting career started in El Paso, Texas where I covered all sides of the illegal immigration debate.

I was there when cartel violence erupted in Ciudad Juarez, Mexico. Mexican federal soldiers were sent in. My extensive coverage of the border city violence included interviews with experts on why two cartels were fighting over the Juarez corridor. Other stories included the deaths of Mexican police officers who were targets of a hit list and reported live from an El Paso hospital on lockdown because of the patients inside.

Ive covered presidential elections, including campaign visits by the Clintons and President Barack Obama.

The story that had the most impact on my life was a story about a teenage boy diagnosed with cancer. He had started planning his Star Wars themed funeral. When I interviewed the brave young man, he was noticeably in a lot of pain yet didnt wallow in pity. Instead, he wanted to thank those who had helped his family. Being a mother, that story was the hardest but most rewarding to tell. I love reporting because I can bring someones story to life.

Winning American Idol is about more than talent, Candice Glover says.

Yes, I think its based on talent first, Glover, 23, said in a recent phone interview. But theres also a star power and versatility and a drive . tonight, the St. Helena Island native and Kree Harrison will compete in the onehour Idol finale. Each will sing three songs: a selection by show creator Simon Fuller, the contestants favorite performance from this season and a coronation song an original song written for each finalist that will be available for download on iTunes. Thursday on Fox.

The elusive star power that the winner of Idol must possess isnt just about looks, Glover said. Its not about having a glitzy wardrobe or professionally done hair and makeup.

Its just a demeanor a star has, Glover said. Theyre a humble person, but when they step on a stage, they command that stage.

Judge Randy Jackson said its what makes Glovers performance this season different from her previous two tryouts for the show.

After Glover sang in this seasons Top 40, Minaj said she couldnt understand how Glover didnt make it on the show before.

How to protect newborns in the car

How to protect newborns in the car

Everybody would be safest facing backward while riding in a car.

Babies are lucky to have seats that work this way. Infants are safest when riding facing the rear, because the back of the safety seat supports the child back, neck, and head in a crash. So, whichever seat you choose, your baby should ride rear facing until about one year of age and at least 20 pounds.

1. Small, lightweight only safety seats are designed for use rear facing only. This kind can be used only as long as the baby head is enclosed by the top rim of the seat A. The label on the seat gives the upper weight limit 17 to 22 pounds. One seat can be converted into a car bed for babies who must lie flat.

2. Larger convertible seats usually fit children from birth to about 40 pounds. Some new models have weight limits as high as 30 to 32 pounds for rearfacing use. These products are especially good for babies under age one who are growing more rapidly than average B. It may be turned around to face the front when the baby is about one year old and at least 20 pounds C. Read the labels to check weight limits. If you buy an infantonly seat, you will need a convertible seat later. Most babies need to use rearfacing convertible seats as they get larger, because they outgrow their infantonly seats before age one. Some products are made to carry a baby over 20 pounds facing the rear. Look for a seat with a higher weight limit when you shop.

Practice buckling the seat into your car before your babys first ride. The base stays buckled in the vehicle, and the seat snaps in and out. Shields do not fit small newborn babies properly. The shield comes up too high and may make proper adjustment of the harness difficult D.

What about seats for preemies?

A baby born earlier than 37 weeks may need to use a car bed if he or she has any possibility of breathing problems when sitting semireclined. Use rolled blankets to keep the babys head from slumping G, see below. Never place any extra cushioning under or behind the baby.

What to do if your baby head flops forward?

It important for an infant to ride sitting semireclined halfway back or 45 degrees from horizontal. In the car, you may find that the safety seat is too upright for a new baby who can hold up his or her head. You can put a tightly rolled bath towel under the front edge of the safety seat to tilt it back a little so your babys head lies back comfortably F. Do not recline it too far.

Harness straps must fit snugly on the body.

Use lowest harness slots for a newborn infant. Dress your baby in clothes that keep legs free. If you want to cover your baby, buckle the harness around him first, then put a blanket over him. If he still slumps down, put a rolled diaper between his legs behind the crotch strap. Thick padding should not be put underneath or behind the baby. Iannellis new book

How Kedarnath temple braved natures fury

How Kedarnath temple braved natures fury

Dehradun, June 27:The evacuation and the rescue operations in Uttarakhand are almost done and now begins the Himalayan operation of resurrection and rehabilitation. Officials said that it would take around 34 years to get the town back on its feet.

However, amidst the scene of destruction and mayhem, there is one structure that stands tall, perfectly in shape, with minor cracks here and there. This is the Kedarnath temple, which has miraculously braved the flash floods when the entire vicinity was turning into rumbles. Call it the miracle of being the Gods own abode or sheer luck, the temple stands unscathed.

However, scientists believe otherwise. They believe that it is the sheer structure of the building that holds the mystery as it was under the snow for almost 400 years and still survived.

Scientists further confirm that the temple structure has several yellow lines that implies glacial movement over the stones. Glaciers comprise of mud and rocks and can be really abrasive. But the structure remained steady with just a few yellow lines here and there, said one of the scientists in Wadia Institute of Geology. Even the interiors of the temple show such marks, but the stones are more polished, he added.

There are many theories regarding the construction of the temple. While some say that it was built by Raja Bhoj of Malwa, who reigned between 1076 and 1099 AD, while there are others who believe that it was the Pandavas who built a temple behind the Kedarnath in the Hindu Dwapar era. But the popular belief is that it was built by Adi Shankaracharya in the 8th century. That proves the fact because the LIttle Ice Age is considered to have taken place between 13001900 AD when the temple became a part of the glacier.

The scientists have conducted a Lichenometric dating test on the stones to know their age. The test proves that the glacial formation in the area started in the middle of the 14th century and continued till 1748. It is believed that the Kedarnath is a part of the Chorabari glacier and had five rivers flowing through iMandakini, Madhuganga, Chhirganga, Saraswati and Swarndari. While the other rivers are mythicsl, Mandakhini is said to grow by magnificent extent when it rains or snows.

The temple is 85 feet high, 187 feet long and 80 feet wide. The walls are 12 feet thick and built of very strong stones. The platform on which the temple stands is six foot high.

Clearly, the engineers of the temple had kept the terrains and the formation of the glaciers and the snow in mind and built the temple to withstand any kind of natural disaster. Or could it be the power of the deity that it is dedicated to? Lord Shiva is the destroyer and the saviour, so the temple had to brave all odds to symbolise the omnipresent Shiva.
