My third failed attempt at breastfeeding, and it's OK

I've come to know the sound all too well -- the unmistakable suction of the breast pump. In fact, my breast pump and I have spent so much time together there are times I think it's talking to me, and sometimes not saying very nice things!

Bridging the gap: Can empathy be taught?

Every semester since 2006, Kevin Blair has taught an introductory course on poverty at Niagara University. And every semester, he finds a business student who is only enrolled in the class to fulfill a social science elective, or simply needed three more credits to graduate -- not because the student is interested in poverty.
