Starting Monday, the Michigan Dept. of Human Services will require children ages 6-15 to attend school full time to keep their family eligible for cash benefits. If a child doesn't, the entire family becomes ineligible.

The policy change was prompted by Gov. Snyder, who called earlier this year for a crackdown on truancy and the cycle of crime it creates.
China is Michigan's third-largest trading partner, and we sell $2.2 billion in goods and materials to China each year. Governor Snyder wants to see that number grow.

That is why he spoke at the opening of the Michigan China Center in Shanghai. The Michigan China Center provides a physical presence for Michigan and Michigan businesses: attracting foreign direct investment, export trade development, education initiatives and tourism opportunities between Michigan and China. 
One in 62,500,000,000,000,000,000. (That’s 62.5 quintillion)
Or, if one prefers, the chances are 0.0000000000000000000016 that those curious developments happened by accident.
The question at hand is whether Obama is constitutionally qualified for the office, under the Constitution’s requirement that presidents be a “natural born citizen.” Some say even if he was born in Hawaii, he wouldn’t qualify, because of his father’s foreign student status.  Many believe a “natural born citizen” is the offspring of two citizen parents.
After President Obama pledged in March to create up to 15 manufacturing centers nationwide, the first federal grant went to a place at the heart of his affections: Ohio.
When the Obama administration awarded tax credits to promote clean energy, the $125 million taken home by Ohio companies was nearly four times the average that went to other states.
And when a Cleveland dairy owner wanted to make more ricotta cheese, he won what was then the largest loan in the history of the U.S. Small Business Administration.
“One of the tastiest investments the government has ever made,’’ the president joked as he mentioned the dairy and other businesses his administration has helped in the state.
A new study released this week by researchers at Stanford and NYU has found that American drone strikes in Pakistan are killing far more civilians than advertised, taking out few high value targets, and have become the primary recruiting tool for the terrorist groups the policy is aimed at combating. The report, “Living Under Drones: Death, Injury, and Trauma to Civilians From US Drone Practices in Pakistan,” is based on “more than 130 interviews with victims, witnesses, and experts, and review of thousands of pages of documentation and media reporting” conducted over nine months.

Arizona is expanding its Move On When Ready initiative, a program in which high schools reward achievement by allowing students to graduate after two years.
Nearly two dozen district, charter and private schools joined the program this year, in addition to the dozen schools that are in their second year, according to the Center for the Future of Arizona, the organization that is overseeing the program.
Move On When Ready, passed by the Legislature in 2010, is an effort to boost education based on performance, not "seat time." Participating schools teach an intense curriculum that includes end-of-course examinations. After two years, sophomores who pass the exams can graduate with a Grand Canyon Diploma.
The students can then stay in school and take more advanced classes that prepare them for selective universities, or move on to attend community college.

France is set to ban the words "mother" and "father" from all official documents under controversial plans to legalise gay marriage. 

The move, which has outraged Catholics, means only the word "parents" would be used in identical marriage ceremonies for all heterosexual and same-sex couples.
The draft law states that "marriage is a union of two people, of different or the same gender".
It says all references to "mothers and fathers" in the civil code – which enshrines French law – will be swapped for simply "parents".
