'Sam' Boyer/special to cleveland.com BRUNSWICK, Ohio -- Just as my brother-in-law is deciding whether to move back home to Ohio from Florida, we get Florida weather. I don't like it very much, especially when I'm supposed to be at Heritage Farm pulling weeds from the children's gardens. The gardens -- and the weeds, for that matter -- seem to love the weather. Brother-in-law Ron Culp made a quick visit to Ohio last week, and we looked at places he might live. I think we found one nearby suitable for him, his two white Great Pyrenees and his black Newfoundland dogs. He can also start volunteering here -- he now takes those dogs to hospitals and libraries as therapy animals, so I'm sure he'd be welcome to do the same here. And, I'm sure those dogs will enjoy the snow. Rotary clubs meet students: Last week was a time to meet and hear from students who attended the Rotary Youth leadership Awards 5-day Camp held at Baldwin Wallace University. Ian Faunce, from Highland High School, was … [Read more...] about Students make news, and the weather is a topic of conversation: Whit & Whimsey

A college degree has long been touted as society’s great leveler, essential for entry into the middle class. Nearly 20 million students enrolled in an undergraduate program in 2015, according to the U.S. Department of Education. Movies and television tend to portray an idealized college experience, featuring 18- to 21-year-olds who attend four-year institutions and live on campus. But in reality the college experience is far more varied. Only 15 percent of the undergraduate population fit the traditional profile in 2015, compared with 35 percent in 1986. A college student today is more likely to be female, to attend a four-year public college full time, to live off campus and to graduate with student loan debt. About 43 percent of full-time undergraduate students also work at least part time.To try to capture a more representative snapshot of what college looks like today, we dispatched two reporters to shadow two undergrads — Sheila Suarez, 23, a commuter at the … [Read more...] about One day, two students: What college looks like from opposite ends of the income gap

A charming animated baby, Kristin Neff's son Rowan retreated into himself as a toddler, losing his few words and becoming prone to inexplicable screaming fits. There are numerous ways Neff could have reacted to Rowan's 2004 diagnosis of autism. She could have buried her emotions, become despondent or immediately found something to blame. But Neff, an associate professor at the University of Texas at Austin, was in the midst of pioneering psychological research on self-compassion. And her findings suddenly proved invaluable to her personal life. Being sympathetic and kind to herself let her cope constructively and offered insight into how to parent her struggling son. Neff wrote about it all in "Self-Compassion" (William Morrow, 2011), released this April. And a budding field of research has psychologists are finding that self-compassion may be the most important life skill, imparting resilience, courage, energy and creativity. It's also a skill many people lack. Self-compassion is … [Read more...] about CBS News Logo Self-compassion: The most important life skill?
