Should i go to medical school
The parents of a baby born at just under 25 weeks have won their fight for him to start school a year later. Three-year-old Hugo Corry-Wilson was born on August 30, 2015, putting him in a different school year to the one he would have been in had he arrived on time. It meant he would have started in Reception class this September, hopefully joining his older brother Adam at Springfield Primary School in Sale. But his parents Rachel Corry and Stephen Wilson say Hugo, who weighed just 1lb 8oz when he was born and had to have both heart surgery and bowel surgery before he was allowed home, isn't ready to start school. His prematurity and seven-month hospital stay mean he’s behind in development in most areas and is still very small for his age. As well as being behind with language - struggling to make himself understood - Hugo's nursery have been tracking his development and say he's six to 12 months behind. He couldn't sit unaided until he was 15 months, didn't walk until after … [Read more...] about Parents win fight for premature-born son to start school a year later
Going to medical school today takes more than ambition, good grades in biology in college, and an appetite for hard work. It takes a willingness to incur a crushing amount of debt. Student debt in general is in crisis in this country. All told, borrowers owe $1.5 trillion, more than people owe in credit card debt or car loans. People have borrowed money to attend medical school for decades, but the scale of the debt has skyrocketed in recent years, along with just about every other cost in health care. The average medical student now graduates with a debt burden as big as a home mortgage. It's a tradition on the very first day of medical school, the so-called white coat ceremony, a rite of passage for 24-year-old Joe Babinski and his hundred classmates at New York University. Joe Babinski: It's kinda this transition point where you go from being a potential student to a member of the medical community even if you're at the bottom rung of the ladder still. Lesley Stahl: (LAUGH) … [Read more...] about How the NYU School of Medicine is going tuition-free

Produced by Christopher Gidez On Aug. 28, 2017, police in upstate Corning, New York, were called to the home of Michele Neurauter. Police found the 46-year-old mother of three hanging from a rope -- an apparent suicide. But Police Chief Jeff Spaulding had doubts, calling a rope mark found on Michele's chin "unsettling." Michele's mother Jeanne Laundy thought she was murdered, and pointed fingers at Neurauter's ex-husband, even though he was more than 2,500 miles away on a job interview in California when Michele was found dead. "I'm thinking it's more than likely Lloyd killed her," Jeanne Laundy told "48 Hours" correspondent Erin Moriarty. Lloyd Neurauter was Michele's ex-husband. For five years, the couple had been embroiled in bitter custody battles. Michele accused Lloyd of turning their daughters against her. On the day police found Michele, the couple's 19-year-old middle daughter, Karrie, at college in Rochester, told investigators that over the weekend, her father helped her … [Read more...] about “I had to choose”: Did a father brainwash his daughter to help kill her mother?
