Josh Hamilton has had long battle with addiction. He was suspended multiple times while he was coming up through the Tampa Bay Rays system. He was virtually out of baseball due to his addiction problems but cleaned himself up got back to the big leagues and won a MVP with the Texas Rangers. Now he has suffered another relapse, and faces punishment from Major League baseball that could include a lengthy suspension. However, is that what MLB should do?
The National Bureau of Economic Research says there is a "definite connection between mental illness and the use of addictive substances." It is not known if Hamilton has been diagnosed with a mental illness but it seems that he is displaying the behaviors associated with a mental illness and an addiction problem. If that is the case suspension may not be able to fix the problem.
The MLB should punish Hamilton for violating an agreement he entered into with them and for violating the sports drug policies. However, cutting him off from the team and sport that gives him the structure he likely needs to successfully battle his addiction could be detrimental to his health. more >>
Population shifts resulting from Syria's four-year long civil war have profoundly changed Syria and its three Arabic-speaking neighbors: Iraq, Lebanon, and Jordan. (Turkey and Israel have changed too, but less so.) Ironically, amid tragedy and horror, as populations adapt to the brutal imperatives of modern nationalism, all four countries are becoming a bit more stable. That's because the fighting has pushed peoples to move from ethnic-minority status to ethnic-majority status, encouraging like to live with like.
Before looking at each country, some background:
First, along with the Balkans, the Middle East contains the most complex and unsettled ethnic, religious, linguistic, and national mix in the world. It's a place where cross-border alliances deeply complicate local politics. If the Balkans set off World War I, the Middle East might well spark World War III. more >>

A Republican lawmaker was forced to clarify a controversial post she wrote on social networking site Facebook after critics deemed it to be "racist."
In January, Tennessee's House majority floor leader, Rep. Sheila Butt, called for the formation of "a Council of Christian Relations and a NAAWP in this Country," which left critics up in arms.
The post was in response to an open letter from the Council on American-Islamic Relations — an organization that the United Arab Emirates has labeled a terrorist group — urging potential presidential candidates to reach out to American Muslim voters in a bid to help tackle Islamophobia. Some interpreted the acronym NAAWP to mean the National Association for the Advancement of White People, which was an organization was founded by former Klu Klux Klan leader David Duke. more >>
A new spring kid's sports season is almost here. Soon the local sports fields will be filled with beehives of red-cheeked kids chasing soccer balls. Players will be rounding bases in baseball games. The sound of aluminum bats will be pinging the air. And there will be the welcome smell of fresh cut, dewy grass on Saturday mornings at sporting complexes across America.
And I, for one, love it. Well, most of the time.
Over the last 30 years, kid's sports have changed from having 12 games in the summer for little league ; to having kids play 50 to 70 and up to 90 games a season in competitive sports such as baseball and soccer. What are Christian parents to do when these activites interfere with Church and family life? more >>
