Baltimore students staged mostly peaceful mass protests Wednesday to reclaim an image that was tarnished when scenes of young people hurling bricks and bottles at police officers this week were broadcast around the world.
The thought of heading off to college makes most teens feel excited, anxious and maybe a little scared. But first-generation students - those whose parents didn't attend college - face a slew of other emotions as they prepare to step foot on college campuses across the country.
As a game originally inspired by "Prince of Persia," the "Assassin's Creed" series might be coming full circle with "Assassin's Creed Chronicles," a series of 2.5D platforming action games that tell tales that aren't necessarily related to the ongoing storyline of the main series. "Chronicles: China" has greater depth than similar side-scrollers along with an art style that gives it a unique personality of its own. While it suffers from a few quirks, it is a remarkable experience that livens up the series.
You've memorized your future university's fight song, found a cool roommate and started buying dorm decor (and maybe a year's supply of ramen). But what are you missing? Don't forget about these eight life skills you should absolutely have before leaving for school this fall.
I've learned you have to take the initiative if you want to get anywhere in life. If you just let other people determine what is going to happen for you, then all your goals and dreams may never be achieved.
College is the time to discover passions, develop independence and experience new opportunities. While many teens see college as their chance to start anew, they also face an uncomfortable reality when it comes to relationships after graduation. Should couples stay together or call it quits?

SEATTLE - Imagine a farm in the city. Not one that grows crops, but one that provides space for a couple dozen animals to bask on beach towels, play baseball, drive cars, roast marshmallows on a campfire and watch the Seahawks on TV.
Early one morning last May, Henry Griffin was leading a group of bird enthusiasts through an alley near his Chicago suburban Oak Park home and heard a song that made him stop. It was from a Connecticut warbler, a notoriously shy bird with a reputation for being hard to find.
When my two-year-old granddaughter started preschool loaded with a backpack that came down to her knobby knees, she turned at the classroom door and waved to her family, as dry-eyed as Darth Vader pulling out his light saber.
Q. My ex and I split up about six months ago. We were married for 10 years and share custody. Last week the kids came home from his house and told me, "Daddy had a woman spend the night." I was horrified! I didn't think he would ever do that! What do I do?
Dear Mr. Dad: I've got twins - one girl, one boy - and we love wrestling together. I always thought I was treating them the same, but a few days ago, my wife told me that she's thinks I play very differently with them - very physically with my son and much more gentle with my daughter. I started paying attention and I have to admit that she's right. So now I'm wondering: is there any actual reason to be more gentle with my daughter? And should I be more gentle with my son?
A list of some of the more memorable elements of pre-1960s parenting is in constant circulation on the Internet and is especially popular with people my age, who can for obvious reasons relate. The items include that we drank from garden hoses and survived, didn't wear bike helmets and survived, could only take a test once and never had to see psychologists for test anxiety, and so on.

For one thing, we were free to fail, which is the greatest of all freedoms.
