Why raising a ‘Chatty Cathy’ isn’t a bad thing

Tarrin
Language and speech development is an early milestone that is vital for all infants to reach in order to promote healthy progression into childhood and to encourage school readiness. 
 
The words and sounds that they hear, things that they see and experience, and positive interactions with parents all contribute to how rapidly language and speech development will occur for young children. 

The ‘real’ Muhammad Ali is depicted in a documentary about his life outside the ring

Ali
CHICAGO (FinalCall.com) – One of the most recognizable figures on the Earth is Muhammad Ali. While many have heard his name and been told of his exploits in the ring, do you truly know his story?
 
You may know that he suffers from Parkinson’s disease and is not the fast-talking, swift moving athlete he once was. You may know that he joined the Nation of Islam, and you might even know that he refused to fight in America’s military, but how did he become such a beloved American figure?
You could say he has now become the quintessential American symbol. You don’t get much more American than carrying the Olympic torch and lighting the flame, as he did during the opening ceremonies of the 1996 games in Atlanta.

Christensen set to be U.S. first Black female governor

Christensen
The United States has never had a Black female as the governor of a state-level jurisdiction but that could change in the November general election. U.S. Virgin Islands Del. Donna Christensen (D) is well on her way to becoming the governor of her territory. She and Basil Ottley Jr. won the crowded Aug. 2 Democratic Party primary for governor and lieutenant governor, respectively, and because of the strength of the party, will face minor opposition from the island’s other political parties in the Nov. 4 general election.
 
Christensen was delighted to win her latest political battle. “I am pleased to have the nomination of the Democratic Party and I invite all of my fellow Democrats to work together with me to ensure victory in November,” Christensen, 68, said. “We have a lot of work to do; our people expect that we will have a common vision and a plan to move our territory forward.”
Christensen has been the delegate from the Virgin Islands since 1997. Before her election to Congress, she practiced family medicine for 21 years and held other political offices in the territory.

GM to move Cadillac SRX production to Tennessee

GM
SPRING HILL, Tenn. (AP) — General Motors announced Wednesday that it is moving production of its next-generation Cadillac SRX crossover SUV from Mexico to its plant in Tennessee, leading United Auto Workers leaders to chide Tennessee Republicans for their opposition to the union increasing its influence in the state.
 
The UAW has represented workers at the former Saturn plant since it opened on the outskirts of Nashville in 1990, but state Republicans including Gov. Bill Haslam and U.S. Sen. Bob Corker have fought the union's efforts to gain representation of workers at Volkswagen's plant about 100 miles to the east in Chattanooga.
