NewsTaco To Go: Middle East, Space, Segregation And Abortion

Abortion doesn’t cause depression, the Middle East is blowing up, one school is purposefully segregation students, credit card rates are skyrocketing and today is the 25th anniversary of the Challenger explosion.

Having an abortion does not cause depression or post-traumatic stress disorder, rather, women who had children tended to have more psychiatric problems, probably due to the stress of having children.

Credit card interest rates are near record highs, especially for new customers. The rates are averaging 14.72%, with bad credit as high as 59.9% APR.

25 years ago the space shuttle Challenger exploded 73 seconds after takeoff; among those killed were school teacher Christa McAuliffe and the second African-American to visit space, Ronald McNair.

A Lancaster, Pennsylvania high school purposefully segregates some students by race, gender and language proficiency each day for a few minutes as part of a program to use research showing that doing so can boost academic achievement and self-esteem.

Protests in Yemen and Egypt, this after an uprising in Tunisia, are escalating and the U.S. is unable to do anything about it; the issue is political unrest and displeasure with leaders.
