She's baaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaack! Rachel Canning, the New Jersey teen who gained notoriety for suing her parents for college cash after moving out, scored a $56,000 scholarship with Western New England University. Canning, called “spoiled” by a case investigator, rescinded her demands for $654-a-week in child support and college tuition from her parents, Sean and Elizabeth Canning, three weeks ago. Living with her best friend for nearly four months, the 18-year-old cheerleader moved back home to her parents on March 11. A representative for Western New England confirmed that Canning was indeed accepted into the private school located in Massachusetts. -One wonders what she will major in? Oh, where I could go with that answer...~Rowdy
Mothers might not feel like they have any extra seconds in the day to exercise, but a new study finds that being a more active mom will make your young children more active too. A study from the University of Cambridge published in the journal Pediatrics tracked 554 mothers and their four-year-olds using accelerometers. The data showed that when mothers boosted their physical activity, children's moderate to vigorous activity increased 10 percent. The study isn't perfect. It's not clear whether active moms inspired their children to be more active or if already active children were making their mothers run around after them.
