John F. Kennedy assassinated - Nov 22, 1963 John Fitzgerald Kennedy, the 35th president of the United States, is assassinated while traveling through Dallas, Texas, in an open-top convertible. First lady Jacqueline Kennedy rarely accompanied her husband on political outings, but she was beside him, along with Texas Governor John Connally and his wife, for a 10-mile motorcade through the streets of downtown Dallas on November 22. Sitting in a Lincoln convertible, the Kennedys and Connallys waved at the large and enthusiastic crowds gathered along the parade route. As their vehicle passed the Texas School Book Depository Building at 12:30 p.m., Lee Harvey Oswald allegedly fired three shots from the sixth floor, fatally wounding President Kennedy and seriously injuring Governor Connally. Kennedy was pronounced dead 30 minutes later at Dallas’ Parkland Hospital.

One step closer to unravelling child poverty - Growing Up in New Zealand More than half of New Zealand mothers experience some level of hardship between late pregnancy and when their child is 9 months old and many parents have to cope with a drop in family income after having children. These are two of the results from a new policy brief by child development study Growing Up in New Zealand which follows the lives of almost 7000 children from before birth into adulthood. The brief provides a snapshot on the economic, physical, social, and human resources available to New Zealand children in their first two years of life, and explains how these inter-related measures can be used to provide population-relevant and context-specific insights into developing innovative solutions to reduce child poverty. The information comes in the week leading up to Children’s Day on 1 March which will be celebrated under the theme ‘Treasure our Children’.

Understanding Differences Between Holistic, Alternative, and Complementary Medicine The terms holistic medicine, alternative medicine and complementary medicine have often been used interchangeably. In fact, alternative medicine and complementary medicine are different and holistic medicine is a term which tends to embrace the larger definition of a system of treatment and practitioners who do not work within the system of conventional medicine. A more precise definition of the term is that holism is a philosophy that believes in treating the whole person and in the integration of mind, body and spirit. Holism promotes the belief that these three elements of a human being must be treated together in order to achieve any notion of ‘healing,’ rather than simply treating a person for a specific illness or injury.
