Summer Safety for Children: Heat Exhaustion and Heat Stroke

Those living in the deserts of the southwestern United States don’t really need a thermometer to feel the summer heat. Yet, as the temperatures climb, it’s helpful to remember our bodies have to work even harder to keep cool, especially for those who are physically active in the heat. As a result, various ailments may develop, such as heat exhaustion and heat stroke. These conditions can lead to serious injury or death, so it is important to know what signs to look for and how we can avoid these dangers.

Do you know the difference between heat exhaustion and heat stroke?

Would you know what to do if someone close to you was suffering from either of these conditions?

Amelia Rose Earhart Recreates Famous Global Flight



Thirty-one year old Amelia Rose Earhart isn’t officially related to the famous pilot, Amelia Mary Earhart, but in spirit she’s always felt a connection. Amelia Rose believed for years that she was related to the famous Amelia Mary Earhart, but recently found out the two are not actually related by blood. Since she was in high school Amelia Rose dreamed about recreating Earhart’s global flight. She started flying 10 years ago and earned her private pilot’s license and instrument rating. She hopes to fly the same global route that Earhart set out to do in 1937.


Earhart attempted to circumnavigate the globe, but never made it. Her and her plane disappeared and for 75 years, it still remains a mystery of what became of her.
