The risk of a family with one autistic child having another child with autism is double what was previously thought, according to a new study. The findings, published in the journal Pediatrics, are of average risks, scientists say: They will vary according to the family's specifics. "I have seen families with five kids with autism," said Dr. Fred Volkmar, a child psychiatrist and autism expert at Yale University. Volkmar was not part of the study, published Monday. Scientists have long known that autism runs in families.

How to hold peace talks Mediator and parenting coach Susie North offers these suggestions for parents mediating disputes between siblings: Embrace neutrality and acknowledge bias. Reflect honestly upon your biases (gender, birth order, temperament -- anything). Take them into account when you approach conflict between the kids. You will mediate more effectively if you admit to your biases than if you pretend they don't exist.

People who grow up with lots of siblings are more likely to marry -- and to stay married -- than are only children or those who grew up with one or two siblings, a new study has found. Those of us who grew up in big families may get more practice suppressing the urge to strangle a bullying older brother in his sleep, or to stick an annoying little sister's head in the toilet -- a useful exercise for sustaining a marital relationship. We may be more skilled in creating alliances with siblings when adversity outside or elsewhere in the family mounts.

Light-heavyweight champ Jon Jones made an unprecedented stand against the Ultimate Fighting Championship last month - he declined to fight a last-minute substitute, prompting the first-ever cancellation of an entire UFC card. His mother, Camille, beamed with pride. "That was so Mama," she said. "I would be miserable if I was being forced to do something I didn't believe in. He's not only an athlete, but a businessman and a thinker. " It turns out the three sons of "Mama" Jones and her husband, Arthur, have had a major impact on American sports - and they will be on full display this weekend.

Authorities are trying to determine the cause of death for two young siblings whose skeletal remains were discovered in a Kern County storage unit. Investigators said Tuesday that dental records identified the victims as Victor and Tricia Reyes. The brother and sister had been dead between two and four years when the discovery of a severed hand Aug. 19 led detectives to search a Derrell's Mini Storage unit in Bakersfield. The county coroner says the children appeared to be between 10 and 11 years old at the time of their deaths.

When a loved one dies, sometimes those left behind experience a sort of purgatory themselves, a pause seized by grief. "The Wait" opens with just such a passing of a family matriarch, and a mysterious phone call convinces Emma (Chloë Sevigny) that her mother will rise from the dead like Lazarus. Or Jesus. They just have to wait. Emma's sister Angela (Jena Malone), going through some kind of breakup, finds the situation macabre but uses the break from daily life to reclaim her sense of freedom after a relationship of neglect.

JERSEY CITY, N.J. - It was one of the biggest, and perhaps the most quickly forgotten, interceptions in NFL playoff history. When Seattle's Richard Sherman tipped away a pass intended for San Francisco 49ers receiver Michael Crabtree in the NFC championship game, linebacker Malcolm Smith caught the ball to complete a play that sent the Seahawks to the Super Bowl. But Smith's heads-up effort instantly became an afterthought when Sherman's emotional postgame outburst made the cornerback one of the Super Bowl's main story lines.

Kari Hunt Dunn's daughter had always been taught to dial 911 in an emergency. On Dec. 1, Dunn was  stabbed to death in the bathroom of a Marshall, Texas, motel room. Her 9-year-old daughter, who was in room with her two siblings, tried to call 911 four times -- just as she had learned. But in this emergency, none of the calls got through.  “She didn't know she was supposed to dial an extra 9 first to get an outside line,” said Hank Hunt, Dunn's father and grandfather of the 9-year-old.

Two pairs of political siblings and their travails have been in the news this week: The Cheney sisters have been fighting with each other about gay marriage, and the Ford brothers have been fighting with everybody about Toronto Mayor Rob Ford's fitness for office. The struggles of both families offer object lessons about how political ambitions can become positively poisonous when they conflict with family values -- real ones, like respect and honesty and self-sacrifice.

I welcome "Bickering, Bloodsport of Siblings" [March 17] as an eye-opener to what happens in homes throughout America. I believe expert Charlotte Brantley is referring to amicable discussions and reasonable arguments. Yet I have witnessed horrible behavior that Brantley seems to believe is healthy and serves to prepare children for friendly marital relationships. Perhaps she has overlooked the vulgar language used. If children are allowed to offend and disrespect each other, they are in essence training to overpower others by belittling, ridiculing and bullying.

As a snapshot of Harlem in 1943, John Henry Redwood's “The Old Settler” evokes some historical artifacts that have faded into obscurity - party line telephones, the Savoy Ballroom - and others that stubbornly endure in more camouflaged form, i.e., segregationist tactics that stack the economic deck. Nevertheless, Redwood's 1998 romantic dramedy is first and foremost a humanist work with a vision of endurance and connectedness that transcends race and politics, and its best qualities are admirably served in William Stanford Davis' fine staging at the Pico Playhouse.
