Student Expelled From School For Not Standing For..

Randall Kallinen, the attorney for 17-year-old India Landry, has filed a lawsuit against the Cypress-Fairbanks Independent School District and a high school principal claiming that the student’s constitutional rights were violated after she was expelled for not standing for the Pledge of Allegiance.

The lawsuit claims that Landry, a Houston student, was expelled after sitting for the pledge in the principal’s office on Monday. The lawsuit goes on to say that Landry returned to school on Friday, after the principal reversed their decision and allowed Landry to sit during the pledge.

The black teenager told KHOU that she doesn’t think “the flag is what it says it’s for, for liberty and justice and all that.”

A district spokesman told ABC they were unaware of the lawsuit, but referenced an earlier statement saying that students should not be removed got refusing to stand to the pledge.

The lawsuit follows the recent resurgence of the ‘Take A Knee’ protests, with players across a number of major NFL teams taking a knee during the national anthem to protest social injustices.

President Donald Trump has heavily criticized the NFL and has called for any players who don’t stand during the national anthem to be fired.

And over the weekend, Vice President Mike Pence walked out of a game between the San Francisco 49ers and Indianapolis Colts after a number of players knelt during the national anthem.

Study Finds Exposure To Air Pollution During Pregnancy May Shorten Babies’ Lives

Study Finds Exposure To Air Pollution During Pregnancy May Shorten Babies’ Lives

 

It’s no secret that living in a polluted area can have negative consequences on our health, but did you know it could potentially affect babies before they’re even born?

According to a new study published in JAMA Pediatrics on October 16, our lifespans may be affected by pollution as early as when we’re in the womb. Researchers looked at 641 pairs of mothers and their newborns who were delivered at or after 37 weeks, focusing on levels of particulate matter — also known as particle pollution — where the mother lives and comparing that to the length of the infant’s telomeres, or biological aging markers.

Using DNA from each baby’s cord blood and placental tissue, the researchers found that infants whose mothers had higher exposure to air pollution had significantly shorter telomeres, which couldn’t be explained by other factors such as the mother’s ethnicity, body mass index, or whether she smoked.

“Telomere length at birth has been related to life expectancy,” the study authors wrote, meaning babies born with shorter telomeres may not live as long as those with longer telomeres. However, it’s important to note that the study did not establish a direct cause and effect relationship between pollution and telomeres.

“Telomere length can be influenced by many parameters, among them stress,” said Jan Karlseder, director of the Paul F. Glenn Center for Biology of Aging Research at the Salk Institute. “Just to make up a possible scenario, it could be that mothers that live in more polluted areas are subjected to higher stress, which then leads to slightly shorter telomeres.”
