Beneath the madness and the lies of The Year of Trump there remains a constant drumbeat, unyielding and determined.

I’m sharing a desk and a tiny purple footstool with intake screener Pat Gordon. We’re both studying the Key Information and Demographics System (KIDS), a blue screen filled with case notes, demographic data, and program statistics. We are focused on

This Sex Myth Is Disturbingly Common, According To A New Survey
It’s no surprise that most adolescents aren’t totally clued up when it comes to sex. Especially when the Internet is full of never-ending questions about the myths of sexuality, along with porn, which only glamorizes sex without showing the realities. What’s more surprising is that a new study, published in the Journal of Adolescent Health, points out that many teen girls who identify as lesbian or bisexual are unaware of the risk of getting STIs during sex with other girls.

How Trump Made 2017 a Horrific Year for LGBT Rightsand Worse Is to Come
2017 wasnt just a bad year for LGBT equality in the United States. It was a pivotally bad year; an epochally horrific one, in sometimes subtle but almost always sinister ways. The events of the last 12 months will have ramifications that could last for the next 12 years. And so, what better way to highlight the monumental terribleness of 2017 than to imagine the year it could have been, had a different candidate won the election, or had

Temperatures In Australia Hit 117 Degrees As Sydney Sees Hottest Day In 78 Years
The bizarre forecast follows record low temperatures in other parts of the world. Temperatures became so hot across southern Australia that police in the neighboring state of Victoria warned drivers on Twitter that a 6-mile freeway was “melting.” A spokeswoman for local electricity provider Ausgrid, speaking to Australia’s Special Broadcasting Service, partially blamed the outage on a surge in power use.

Scientists Just Solved a Major Piece of the Opioid Puzzle

But biochemists have a different focus: Not the opioids, but opioid receptors—the proteins the drugs latch onto within the body.These receptors embed themselves in the walls of cells throughout the brain and peripheral nervous system. There, they serve as cellular gatekeepers, unlocking not just the painkilling properties for which opioids are prized, but the severe, addictive, and often lethal side effects

This boxing gym is giving the underserved kids of Detroit a second chance at a future.
Before he became a boxing coach, Khali Sweeney walked down a troublesome path. He never learned to read and dropped out of high school when he was in 11th grade. Before he was even 18, he had cards stacked against him. As a result, he turned to a life of crime. Then one day, a few years later, he made a harrowing realization — most of the kids he knew growing up in Detroit were either in jail or
