In eastern Mosul, residents fret over security and supplies | Reuters

By Ulf Laessing | MOSUL, Iraq MOSUL, Iraq Iraqi forces have pushed Islamic State out of the street where Yaqdhan Abdelnabi lives in Mosul, but the former sales manager is moving his five children to another part of the city because it is still dangerous.Women hang laundry on balconies and men chat at the few shops that have reopened in the Zahra district of eastern Mosul since it was retaken more than a week ago by Iraqi forces.But Islamic State still holds other parts of the northern city, carries out suicide bombings and fires rockets from positions nearby. With food and water in short supply, life remains far from normal in Zahra, even if Islamic State is on the back foot in Mosul after more than two years of brutal rule."The (Iraqi) army is advancing, but (Islamic State) rockets land every day in our district #Middle East #Iraq #children #crisis #Entertainment #lifestyle

Tennessee school bus crash kills at least six children | Reuters

A bus carrying dozens of elementary school students crashed in Chattanooga, Tennessee, on Monday, killing at least six children and sending 23 people to a local hospital with injuries, authorities said.Five children were found dead on the bus and another died at a hospital, said Melydia Clewell, spokeswoman for the Hamilton County District Attorney's office.Rescue teams were still going through the bus so the number of fatalities could change, she said. There are two or three children at the hospital "who could go either way," she said.Students on the bus, which carried as many as 35 passengers, were in kindergarten through fifth grade, a spokesman for the Hamilton County Sheriff's Office said. That would make them roughly ages 5 to 10.Asked about the crash following a budget hearing in Nashville, Governor Bill Haslam said the state would offer its assistance #Middle East #Cities #Argentina #United Kingdom #children #Entertainment #lifestyle

Aid agencies in Iraq on high alert as families flee Mosul offensive | Reuters

By Magdalena Mis LONDON (Thomson Reuters Foundation) - Aid agencies said on Wednesday families who have fled Mosul and surrounding towns were starting to reach displacement camps away from the fighting, as Iraqi forces press on with an offensive to retake Islamic State's last major stronghold in Iraq.The battle that started on Oct. 17 with air and ground support from a U.S.-led coalition is shaping up as the largest in Iraq since the U.S.-led invasion of 2003.On Tuesday Iraqi forces battled Islamic State fighters on the eastern edge of Mosul as the campaign entered a new phase of urban warfare.The United Nations has said the Mosul offensive could trigger a humanitarian crisis and a possible refugee exodus if the civilians inside in Mosul seek to escape, with up to one million people fleeing in a worst-case scenario."People are starting to arrive now from the small towns around Mosul," Joe Cropp of the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC), told the Thomson Reuters Foundation."We've been aware that this has been coming up and the preparations have been going on for two months," he said in a phone interview from northern Iraq. IFRC said many people were arriving with only the clothes they were wearing and those who reached Khazer camp, east of Mosul, said they had to walk through the night. #India #Middle East #Argentina #United Kingdom #children

Until we get rid of the notion of evil or malice associated with sex, the politicians of our country will keep coming up with stupid remarks or measures about it. #India #Sex #HIV #CriticalPoint #Education #AIDS #Sex education #Smriti Irani #children #NDA #HRD Ministry #sexual assault #teenagers #Unicorns #Shareworthy #adolescent education

Indian parents should nurture children's talent, not display them on TV shows

Have Indian parents lost it? These multiple series on TV showing off little boys and girls in a song and dance orgy that borders on the gross is no way a search for talent. #InMyOpinion #reality shows #TRP #children #Television Shows #talent shows
