Lindy Washburn North Jersey Record Published 6:30 AM EDT Apr 12, 2019 WOODLAND PARK, N.J. — New Jersey preschoolers have the highest rates of autism ever measured in the United States, a rate that has increased faster than in other states studied, researchers at Rutgers University reported Thursday. The rate of autism among children in the state has tripled in a generation. One in 35 children in New Jersey was diagnosed with autism by their 4th birthday, according to the study published by the federal Centers for Disease Control on Thursday. Those children were more likely to have attracted the attention of pediatricians and early-childhood educators because of moderate to severe symptoms of autism. Still more children are diagnosed with autism when they enter public schools. The relentless climb in autism rates — from 1% of children born in 1992 to 3% of children born in 2010 — has shown no signs of reaching a plateau, … [Read more...] about Autism: New Jersey preschoolers have highest rates in US
Kathleen Hopkins Asbury Park Press Published 1:30 PM EDT Apr 6, 2019 TRENTON, N.J. – A court advisory committee cited "emotional immaturity" in recommending that Superior Court Judge John F. Russo Jr. of Toms River, New Jersey, be suspended without pay for three months for misconduct that included asking a woman who said she was raped if she had closed her legs during the assault. The advisory committee's findings were released Wednesday. Ultimately, Russo’s punishment will be up to the state Supreme Court. All of the committee’s members agreed that four instances of misconduct by Russo were aggravated by comments he made to his court staff following the hearing in which he asked the alleged rape victim whether she tried to fend off the attack by keeping her legs closed.

Nate Davis USA TODAY Published 6:11 AM EDT Apr 5, 2019 The New York Jets unveiled their new uniforms Thursday night, Nike's latest disappointing collaboration with an NFL team seeking to modernize its image. Anybody who's an Air Jordan aficionado — I'm one — will tell you, despite the footwear and apparel giant's many classics from years gone by, the new looks and reboots leave something to be desired with common frequency. Jets brass bragged that their overhaul — if you can even call it that — was five years in the making. This vast planning and creative effort amounted to a slightly modified logo, different font for the numbers and a new shade of green — "Gotham Green" (whoa!!) — hitched to "Spotlight White" and "Stealth Black," which are pretentious names for ... white and black. Oh, "New York" has also been added to the jersey of a team that's headquartered and plays its home games ... in New Jersey. … [Read more...] about NFL uniforms ranked 1-32: How does New York Jets’ new jerseys rate?
New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy announced his plan to sign legislation allowing terminally ill patients to seek life-ending medication. Once the bill is signed, New Jersey will join six other states and the District of Columbia that have similar laws, the Associated Press reports. "Allowing terminally ill and dying residents the dignity to make end-of-life decisions according to their own consciences is the right thing to do," Murphy said in a statement. "I look forward to signing this legislation into law." The Democrat-led Assembly and Senate passed the measure in close votes on Monday. The bill would allow adult New Jersey residents with a prognosis of six months or less to live to request life-ending medications, according to the AP. The legislation includes several "safeguards" to reduce the chances of abuse, such as requiring patients to make two separate requests to their doctors, along with a chance to rescind the request.Lawmakers in the state have tried to advance … [Read more...] about New Jersey governor to sign “aid in dying” bill for terminally ill patients
