Mother Arrested for Murdering Her Newborn

Suffolk County Police today arrested a Central Islip woman for the killing of her newborn earlier this week.

Santos Elena Ruiz Solano gave birth to a girl on February 16 at 3 a.m. at 40 Shoal Drive in West Islip where she was employed as a live-in housekeeper. The baby suffered traumatic injuries shortly after her birth and died at the scene. Ruiz Solano then placed the baby in a plastic bag and left the home.

Complications of child birth forced Ruiz Solano to seek medical care at a nearby hospital. The child was recovered from a nearby garbage can and given to hospital personnel, who called police.

Homicide Squad detectives charged Ruiz Solano, 26, of 375 Clift St, Central Islip, with Murder 2nd Degree. She will be held overnight for arraignment in First District Court in Central Islip on February 21.

Report: Cee Lo Quit “The Voice” to ‘Avoid Being Fired’

(LOS ANGELES) — Cee Lo Green’s unexpected announcement Wednesday on The Ellen DeGeneres Show that he won’t be returning to NBC’s The Voice as a coach may have surprised fans and fellow judges alike — but a source tells TheWrap insiders saw it coming.

“Green’s decision to quit was a move to avoid being fired by NBC and producer Mark Burnett Productions,” the website reports, quoting an “individual with knowledge of the situation.”

The move came after a fifth season during which the performer suffered “at least one meltdown,” and was asked to leave the set on two occasions.

In October, the “F— You” singer was charged with slipping the drug Ecstasy to an unidentified 33-year-old woman while the two were eating at a Los Angeles restaurant in 2012; the pair later went back to the woman’s hotel. Green has pleaded not guilty to the charge.

Prosecutors declined to pursue a rape charge against Green, citing insufficient evidence.

TheWrap reports the pressure of Green’s case had been taking its toll on him during what turned out to be his final season.

The sixth season of The Voice, featuring the return of Shakira and Usher as coaches, begins Monday.

Study: Frequent School Changes May Increase Psychotic Symptoms

Does frequently changing schools as a child increase a person’s risk of psychotic issues years later?

In a study published in American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry, researchers found that frequent school changes during childhood heightens the risk of developing psychotic-like symptoms in early adolescence by up to 60 percent.

Researchers at Warwick Medical School interviewed a number of 12-year-olds to assess the presence of psychotic-like symptoms, including hallucinations and delusions, in the previous six months, and found those who had changed schools three or more times were found to be 60 percent more likely to display at least one specific psychotic symptom.

Professor Swaran Singh, who led the study, explains, “Changing schools can be very stressful for students. Our study found that the process of moving schools may itself increase the risk of psychotic symptoms — independent of other factors. But additionally, being involved in bullying, sometimes as a consequence of repeated school moves, may exacerbate risk for the individual.”

The study’s authors call on schools to develop strategies to help these students establish themselves in their new environmen

Obama Bets Beer in US vs. Canada Hockey Showdown

President Obama is putting a few brewskis on the line in a wager with Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper as the men’s and women’s hockey teams from the U.S. and Canada are set to face off in the Olympics.

Obama and Harper spent the day together in Toluca, Mexico, for the North American Leaders Summit Wednesday, where they “agreed to disagree on who to root for” in the upcoming hockey match-ups between the U.S. and Canada.

“For a very brief period of time, I might not feel as warm towards Canadians as I normally do — at least until those matches are over,” Obama said.

Team USA’s women hockey players are going for the gold against Canada on Thursday while the men’s teams play Friday.
