2. Abortion in the U.S. has decreased According to a new survey, abortion incidents have decreased across the United States by 12 percent since 2010. A report released last Sunday by the Associated Press indicated a 15-percent drop in states that have proposed aggressive anti-abortion laws. Some abortion-rights supporters, however, attributed the drop to greater access to contraceptives and falling teen pregnancy rate. They also pointed to a cultural shift: more women are choosing to carry the pregnancy until full term. (time.com)

5. “Sesame Street” helps teach more than just letters, numbers New research reveals that the children’s show “Sesame Street” had a longer academic effect than teaching letters and numbers; the show also helped its young viewers perform at the right grade level for their age. Researchers found that kids who watched “Sesame Street” when it first debuted were 14-percent less likely to fall behind in school compared with kids who attended school before the show hit the airwaves. The effect was strongest seen in African American underprivileged kids. This further proves that the creators achieved their goal: to help kids learn, particularly kids from disadvantageous backgrounds. The research also suggests that even kids ages two to five who watch the show today will reap the same benefits. (yahoo.com)
