This is not a trick question. Or at least it shouldn't be. And it doesn't matter if you are for abortion rights or against abortion rights. It is a question of whether the media is continuing to downplay or sanitize one of the darkest, most heinous crimes in the era of legalized abortion. It begins with the makers of a new film seeking to buy a sponsorship on the National Public Radio interview show "Fresh Air." The proposed ad simply said: "Support for this NPR program comes from the film 'Gosnell: The Trial of America's Biggest Serial Killer.' The film is the true story of abortionist Kermit Gosnell. A story the mainstream media tried to cover up because it reveals the truth about abortion." Gosnell ran an abortion clinic in West Philadelphia for more than 30 years before investigators found that he had performed hundreds of late-term abortions in filthy, unsafe conditions, often delivering live infants that he would kill in horrific fashion. He was eventually convicted in the deaths … [Read more...] about What do you call a doctor who performs abortions?

Musicians aren’t pro athletes. Their livelihoods don’t necessarily hinge on the durability and vitality of youth, so in theory, a successful artist should be able to keep playing for a living into their 70s, 80s, even 90s. In theory.In reality, almost every artist, no matter how famous, eventually decides to retire. We’ve seen it so many times in 2018, as legendary artists like Elton John, Ozzy Osbourne, Anita Baker and Lynyrd Skynyrd have announced farewell tours. Sometimes the impetus is health, sometimes it’s to spend more time with family. Sometimes they just want to sell a couple extra tickets.In the case of Paul Simon, who brings his farewell tour to Amalie Arena on Friday, he simply seems tired of it. Full stop."I’ve often wondered what it would feel like to reach the point where I’d consider bringing my performing career to a natural end," he said in a statement announcing the tour. "Now I know: It feels a little unsettling, a touch … [Read more...] about As Paul Simon hits Tampa, we asked legendary rockers: What makes a rock star want to retire?
Raquel Rutledge and Taylor Palmby Milwaukee Journal Sentinel Published 11:00 p.m. UTC Jun 27, 2018 A year after the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel brought to light a suspicious drowning and other troubling accounts from tourists vacationing at upscale all-inclusive resorts in Mexico, the stories continue to surface. In one recent case, a 51-year-old mother and her two adult daughters blacked out simultaneously after drinking a shot of tequila. In another, a couple in their mid-60s vomited and blacked out after two margaritas. And in yet another, a woman from Los Angeles — who had not been drinking — was taken to jail for trying to help a woman who was blacking out in the pool.

When you visit a mother to learn about her child’s suicide, expect to stay awhile. Expect to be asked if you want to visit his room. Or flip through his book of baby pictures. Or see his soccer trophy, which you notice looks identical to your son’s soccer trophy. “She starts crying, and you start crying,” said University of Utah psychiatrist Doug Gray, recalling his interviews with families whose children have died by suicide. The conversations were part of Gray’s research into why the number of Utah youths dying by suicide was increasing in the late 1990s. He and other researchers created psychological autopsies for 49 teenagers and young adults, asking relatives, friends and others about the adolescents’ lives and what may have stopped them from getting help. The project led to successful experiments that improved the mental health of boys at risk in 3rd District Court and are still seen by experts as a visionary approach to preventing … [Read more...] about Why does Utah have a high suicide rate?

Laura Roberts For The Leaf-Chronicle Published 1:31 p.m. UTC Jun 19, 2018 That burning sensation. Sprinting to the nearest restroom, only to find you barely have to urinate at all. And yet, 20 minutes later, finding yourself back in the bathroom in the exact same scenario. Ah, urinary tract infections and the not-so-comfortable side effects they bring with them. The National Kidney Foundation reports that UTI's are responsible for nearly 10 million visits to the doctor a year, with WebMD estimating 1 in 2 women contract a UTI in their lifetime. But what exactly causes these uncomfortable infections? Are men exempt from getting them? And can downing a bottle of cranberry juice really help? It's a common problem, and so many people suffer in silence, hesitant to discuss what can be an embarrassing topic. We put all that aside and had an open talk with two Clarksville urologists to get to the bottom of these burning questions. What is a … [Read more...] about How do you avoid a UTI?
