  • Beth Yeshurun Day School reviewed by a parent

    We love it here. The preschool teachers are genuinely excited to see my children in the mornings! My kids come home every day with an interesting story or singing a new song (even my 2-year-old). The individualized attention is key and you don't get that just anywhere. I love that before we eat we should say the blessings because, according to my kid, "that's just what you do." I can't think of a better place for my children to learn how to be responsible and confident to let their intelligence and creativity shine. We feel at home there and love being a part of our school family.

    Ancient inhabitants of modern-day United Kingdom may have rocked dark skin and blue eyes, a DNA test on a 10,000-year-old skeleton revealed Wednesday. The new findings, along with a 3-D recreation of the oldest-known Briton, who scientists dubbed "Cheddar Man," are being used to by Twitter users to mock white supremacists that have long looked to Europe for notions of racial purity.

Would simplifying this complicated process help both parties reach a compromise?

    Explainer: Why can't immigrants here illegally just apply for citizenship?
    Why can't they just stand in line and fill out the paperwork? As President Donald Trump prepares to give his state of the union address, almost certainly raising the issue of young immigrants who stand to lose their work permits, we explain.

    Texas' setting a record for the number of cold-stunned green sea turtles rescued from inshore water in the wake of the unusually cold stretch that gripped the coast over the first four days of this new year is an event worth celebration and consideration. And not just for the obvious reasons.
