"They told us it was going to be $222.99 with his insurance."

A Texas family was shocked by the price tag of the medicine a doctor prescribed to treat the flu.

Time to break out the handy "Mass shooting in US checklist": 1. Send thoughts & prayers but not actually do anything usefulβœ” 2. Argue over semantics of the term "assault rifle"βœ” 3. Argue over semantics of the term "terrorist" - if Muslim use it, if Christian use term "lone wolf" βœ” 4. Congress does nothing but NRA increases donations just in case βœ” 5. Attribute shooting to mental health issues βœ”οΈ 6. Wait for next one, repeat βœ”οΈ

There was another school shooting in Texas this week... Not much publicity about it because no one died ..

Was it "Take You Gun to School" day? I mean,ya know,Kentucky.

Do you think all kids should know how to write in cursive? ... See MoreSee Less

Shows how lazy some teachers are becoming. It takes effort to teach cursive.

Yes, I didn't think it was a problem until a kid getting his drivers license did not know how to sign his name in cursive on the license. All of this country's founding documents - like the Constitution are written in cursive. I have watched a lot of younger people in our meetings at work and they have trouble taking notes because they are printing instead of writing quickly in cursive. Also, when handwritten notes come across their desk they can't read them.

Not a priority in this technology age. The nostalgia in me says yes! I had to learn cursive. However, if you think about the jobs these kids are going to face in the future...I doubt they’re going to run into much cursive.

Cursive allows for faster writing. I'm all about using my time wisely.

I’d be interested in knowing the age breakdown of the people answering this question. My guess would be that the millennials and younger would say no, and the older, would say yes. We’re in a transition. Eventually there will be less and less paper used and everything will transition to digital. There won’t be a need for cursive. Perhaps everyone will have their own unique symbol, like Prince. Cursive will be the new Latin.

Also known as the secrete ode the millianals can't break

Yes!!! There will be forms in their life that they will have to sign legally and asked for a signature

Please put it back in the curriculum!!!! I teach my 8 yr old on my own. My older boys learned and I make them practice it.

Yes, imagine their signatures lmao won't be hard to forge since they'll look like chicken scratch Taylor Madison

They need to know how to write and read it.

We teach our teenage kids & younger kids to write cursive handwriting. We went to a teacher supply store & bought both print & cursive alphabet desk tape. Put them both on write on wipe off handwriting sheets & use dry erase markers. User friendly, reusable, & are recyclable. Inexpensive to make. Our kids like learning to write cursive handwriting & see how often daily myself & other grown ups use it. Besides there's historical documents in cursive handwriting & if they can't write/read it then they'll never be able to read the documents. They'll always have to ask someone to read it for them? Seem silly the schools don't teach this especially knowing how important it's needed for them to know how to do. We also use red & blue color overlays to help with our kids reading. As both our kids are Dyslexic & one has Epilepsy / ADD & the other is Autistic /ADHD. I know there's websites & apps online to help teach cursive handwriting. But it turns out teaching it "old school, by hand" works best & is easier to learn to do.

The constitution is in cursive and my children are reading it ... i took it upon my self to teach my kids cursive when they started to write. In 5th grade my Kids Are required to read and rewrite the ensable of the constitution in which is in cursive.... other peers of theirs have no clue how to read this! I can not understand how your going to ask of the kids to read cursive and yet none of the teachers are teaching it. We are paying for their education i want them to have the best .. the education system is a huge disappointment!!!!

If you don't write in cursive, how are you going to keep someone from stealing your identity? How do you match signatures at the bank if everyone is printing their name? How do you read cursive if you were never taught it? To ask this question is really dumb. Just as dumb as common core math!

Yes. I want my children and grandchildren to be able to read old documents and even letters written by relatives I especially want them to be able to read original documents written within history over taking someone's word, such as being able to read the original Declaration of Independence, letters written by our presidents, forefathers and ancestors. This erasing history business is a double edged sword. We are supposed to learn from history whether it's good or past mistakes.

Don’t say β€œconsumption!” Kids are already eating Tide pods. Next think you know, they’ll be sucking the ink out of pens.

Should? No. But my kids asked how and are learning. I taught one and am working with the others. I think it would be great if kids could learn about whatever they want and if parents, educators, or society could support them in that.

How can anyone develop a unique signature if all they know how to do is print? Absolutely teach penmanship! It could be 15 minutes a day, at home, if not at school. It's not hard, and it is important!

Yes. They need to be able to sign documents, as well as understand how to read cursive writing.

What a waste of valuable class time. Nobody uses cursive, but more STEM would be time well spent. Cursive is a novelty, kinda like calligraphy was. It’s the electronics age, learn the keyboard!

Absolutely because that is part of being an adult!! You ha e to sign your name to all documents and not print!! Put cursive back into school!!

Well, without cursive writing, they will never be able to read historical documents. So yeah, kind of important.

I think it juat something they can use,it will add a personal touch ti some

Yes I agree it should be taught in school it did before so why not now

Yes, I'm 64 and it was required in elementary Jr.High and High School

YES they should need to know how ,,,

This is possibly the gayest photo of two amazing players.

Honestly im a Fan of Houston because of Cris paul , but i know to myself they would not pass the spurs in 2nd round :3

First round exit in the playoffs. #Predicition

That the two bring together the dreamed title #RunAsOne πŸš€πŸš€

This tandem will not go to conference finals :) Paul's curse 😣

HOUSTON STRONGπŸ’ͺπŸš€πŸ€˜πŸ’―

I follow many basketball team pages because I'm from another country. This team is the most promising so far. Good luck houston!

I hope the ring this year

The best moment of the game ... run as one and they did and the wonπŸš€πŸš€πŸ€πŸ€πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ‘πŸ»πŸŽ‰πŸŽ‰

Nimesh Divakaran Kaan Kocabay yeah that time I carried you kneecaps in Nth Sydney

Huit Liu Luke Chan the undefeated team that has been defeated a couple times

I can see b1 and b2 πŸ˜‚. Hopefully Rockets will be able to reach the Finals vs Cavs or Celtics

Superb win today,James Harden’s absence due to injury turned out to be a blessing in disguise , as Houston has two talisman in team which they otherwise would have not discovered,Chris Paul is on πŸ”₯.

Does anyone think they would jump that high just to have a bump? Well i guess theres no one

Capela:Hey,Nice shot for both of you. Yesterday and Tonight. Next game, if it is a close game lob me the ball and i will win the game.

Igor 18 jogos do trio do Houston jogando juntos, 18 vitΓ³rias kkkkk vΓ£o dar trabalho eim

Paul to the rockets-the best trade of this year, period.

The HOUSTON ROCKETS are back on being the HOTTEST TEAM in the ongoing 2018 NBA Season and they are going to make another WINNING STREAK. I strongly believe they will eventually win the 2018 NBA Championship and JAMES HARDEN will win the 2018 NBA Most Valuable Player Award.

HIT LIKE IF THE ROCKETS WILL BE THE 2018 CHAMPION πŸŽ‰πŸŽŠπŸ™πŸ‘†

CAVS VS ROCKETS FOR 2018 NBA FINALS.. WARRIORS WILL BE RULLED OUT..

Why wasn’t Gerald Green played at all?.. tough game, but good win πŸ”₯ πŸš€

james harden > stephen curry james "the mvp" harden.

AMAZING NBA RECORD: The 2018 Houston Rockets Team is the BEST THREE-POINT SHOOTING TEAM IN NBA HISTORY after they made TEN (10) or MORE Three-Point Shots in FORTY-ONE (41) CONSECUTIVE GAMES (The Longest Streak in NBA History). That is what we call "THE CHRIS PAUL EFFECT". Keep up the Good Work Houston Rockets.πŸ™‚πŸ™‚

Ugly, sloppy game, but we pulled it together at the end when we needed it most. Miami plays good defense. I.ll Take it. Now que all the heat fans saying they didn't have all their stars..

haters says Harden cant play D !!! So what can you say now about his defense performance,block,steal in successive games!!!MVP

I just love the way CP3 and Harden are playing they are such a the best BackCourt in the league Right now and who knows if together can win a Championship.

Harden MVP, please, nobody rob him this time ;)

I am not a Rockets fan but I wouldn't mind if they win the championship this year. Someone needs to beat GSW

18-0 now with Paul Harden and Clint? Yeah we no joke this year 😈

Commentators in the first quarter last night had Heat to win by a landslide. Well done Whiteside hits a few shots and the team shoot 80% but how long was that going to continue for? Class of Harden shines through and Rockets make some adjustments and they finish on 90 points. Time for the media to start realising the potential of this Rockets squad. Capela/Harden/Paul on the floor 18-0 #RunAsOne

Ajay baby got another W!!

Engel Dela Cruz if harden is all that why couldn't he win games without CP3?? Y'all almost lost last night there defense sure won. The turn overs lost that game at least KD can win his games with out Curry and curry can win his. Your on the road your winning streak will come to a end now go smoke some more crack with your 5 loss back to back team

CONGRATULATIONS SQUAD!!!! I ❀ ROCKETS πŸš€πŸš€πŸš€ Keep on winning! I know you will be champion and its your BEST YEAR this year..... 😘😘😘❀❀❀πŸ’ͺπŸ’ͺπŸ’ͺ

James Harden MVP!!!!! At 88-88 all and the game in the balance, James Harden once again decides game with the dagger 3 then a jump shot,then a block,yes blocked shpt on 7ft Hassan Whiteside to complete a W for the Houston Rockets!!! James Harden MVP unquestionably,thats what MVP,s do?!!!

Keep the heat burning' guys... This squad is fully healthy. Let's slowly reclaim the #1 spot in the west. No rush, to avoid injuries #RunAsOne

Important to find different ways to win and this was one of those games. This is a new defensive team this year.

Rockets never give up to James Harden and CP3πŸš€πŸ”₯πŸ€πŸš€πŸ”₯πŸ€ Let's Go Rockets #RunAsOne

When Rockets beat the Warriors , I noticed that they were not even trying their best , they seemed like they were bored or tired. There are 3 team's that the Rockets need to beat in the playoffs. Spurs, Oklahoma, and Warriors. If they meet one of this team in the playoffs, their chances of winning is very small. If they meet the Clippers in the 1st round , they might exit in the 1st round. Don't make them a champion yet.

Harden and CP3 is the best backcourt in the league!!! If they a chip together could go down as the greatest πŸ€”.....πŸ€˜πŸΎπŸš€πŸ’ͺ🏾

OKC team is a huge threat for houston rockets,for me this team and their performance are suitable for playoffs game!!! but all the way ROCKETS run as one😎😎😎😎

the western conference is where the best competition in NBA,the finals in NBA will held in the WEST, the rest plays are bunch of gift wrappers!!! πŸ€”πŸ€”πŸ€”πŸ€”

up my team, it's the best, we have everything to take us to the NBA 2018 tournament- I'm sure of that. For now, the most important thing is to classify it. The rest is easier. Champs 2018
