Back in 2013 when I published the results of my testosterone-boosting experiment, I got chided by many commenters for recommending a diet high in cholesterol and fat. According to them, I was promoting a dangerous diet that would lead to heart disease and obesity, despite the fact that I also published the results of my blood test which showed stellar cholesterol numbers.
I don’t blame these guys for their criticisms. Like me, most of them probably grew up during the 80s and 90s when it was an article of faith that diets high in cholesterol and fat would result in heart disease and other health problems.
But everything most everyone knew about cholesterol has turned out to be wrong. (And that includes me and what I thought was a conclusive link between this lipid molecule and testosterone!)
Why would you show your gun and give your gun to an 11 year old? Good God people, THINK!
A 3-year-old boy was shot and killed on Detroit’s east side Monday by an 11-year-old boy, WDIV reports.
WDIV’s Mara MacDonald reported that they were not related, and that Elijah Walker, 3, of Taylor, and his mother were visiting a home in the 16000 block of Eastwood Avenue near Kelly Road.
The victim was shot in the face while they played with a handgun, WDIV reports.
So Sad and sick
Detroit — A mother accused of killing two of her children and stuffing their bodies in a freezer pleaded guilty to their slayings in court Monday, detailing the gruesome details of their deaths.
Mitchelle Blair’s appearance in court Monday came after 36th District Judge Dana Hathaway adjourned a hearing Friday so she and lawyers for both sides could review results of an independent examination meant to determine if Blair was fit to stand trial. Blair, 36, was ultimately found competent and could be found criminally responsible in the case on Monday, Hathaway said.
Blair then pleaded guilty to premeditated murder and felony murder in her children’s deaths Monday. She had been charged with two counts of felony murder, two counts of premeditated murder and one count of torture. Hathaway accepted the plea after hearing the details of the children’s deaths.
Depression is real, and many people deal with it daily… For some it is a manageable reality and to others it can be life ending.
I think to some degree we all deal with it, I know I have…
The fallout from depression of loved ones and people we admire such as Robin Williams leaves us as stunned survivors, shaken in disbelief. We are struck with shock and left with questions such as, “How could someone who “had it all” want to take his own life? and “If someone with so much talent, intelligence, money, fame, prestige, along with such close friends and family could take his own life, where does that leave the rest of us with so much less?”
I am without words for this…
Wayne County Prosecutor Kym Worthy has announced charges against a mom they say gave birth to a baby boy and then put him inside a bag, causing his death.
The Wayne County Prosecutor announced charges Friday against 25-year-old Kimberly Pappas in relation to a newborn boy found dead inside a desk drawer in March.
The press release says Pappas gave birth to the boy in the bathroom of Ceva Logistics. Worthy said she then put the boy inside a plastic bag and then inside a tote bag near her desk.
With Obamacare, situations like this will only increase. When we allow the system to decide who lives and who does not, we will be playing with a lot of peoples emotions. The doctors had no right to decide if this mans son should be taken off life support. This was and is a decision that should be left to the family. This is truly a sad story. NO=ow, as for the father wanting to kill himself if is son died, well that’s a whole other issue.
A 27 year-old had a series of strokes/seizures and the hospital put him on life support. When his father got there, they told him they would be taking him off life support and harvesting his organs. The father had brought a gun… he intended to commit suicide if his son died and demanded time with his son. Another son wrested that gun from him, but there was a four hour standoff where the father spoke to his son and told him to wake up. The son squeezed his hand three or four times and later woke that night. The father never meant to hurt anyone but himself and spent 77 days in prison for defending his son and saving his life. He doesn’t regret a minute of it.
As always Matt states like it is, I always enjoy reading his post…
A couple of weeks ago, a pregnant woman named Michelle Wilkins went to a home in Boulder, Colorado, looking to buy some baby clothes. The predator there, Dynal Lane, had placed an ad on Craigslist with the intent not of selling anything, but of stealing someone’s unborn child.
Lane accosted Mrs. Wilkins when she arrived at the house, cutting her uterus open with a knife, removing her baby and leaving her to bleed to death. Fortunately, the mother survived the attack, but sadly, her young daughter did not. Lane stowed the infant in an upstairs bathroom, where the little girl died alone in a cold bathtub.
Imagine the fear that beautiful child must have felt. Imagine the agony. Imagine the cruelty and selfishness of her slaughter. Imagine her light extinguished by the brutality and darkness of a cold, calculating killer.
Imagine justice for this innocent victim.
All you can do is imagine it, because in this life, there will be none.
The District Attorney in Boulder announced late last week that no murder charges will be filed in the case. Lane will stand accused of attempted murder for stabbing Mrs. Wilkins, along with a host of other crimes, but no matter how long she ultimately spends in prison, the fact remains that she will not have to answer for killing a child.
She will get away with murder.
