  • Caring for a sick pet can take a major toll

    As much joy as a pet can bring to the life of its human, when a beloved dog or cat falls ill, the emotional toll can be high. In fact, caring for an ailing animal often ends up placing a significant "caregiver burden" on its owner, new research finds. "Think of the phrase, 'Giving until it hurts,'" said study author Mary Beth Spitznagel. Essentially, it's the heavy emotional burden one can experience when the act of caring stretches a person's physical, emotional or even financial capacities to the breaking point. "We found that individuals with a chronically or terminally ill...

    A female employee at Fremont Middle School in Las Vegas died of tuberculosis in mid-July after potentially exposing more than 100 people to the highly contagious disease, school and public health officials said Monday. Ann Schiller, the school’s principal, sent a phone message to parents on July 11 saying that “an individual at our school” had recently been diagnosed with an active case of tuberculosis. It said that public health officials would contact families “within the next few days” if their kids needed to be tested. Lynn Row, the chief nurse for the Clark County School District, said she could...

    Fellow FREEPers, I am NOT trying to be morbid or tactless, but given the recent development with Senator McCain, I want to RESPECTFULLY ask the question. We recall how, on national TV, Obama told a woman whose mother had a terminal condition that might be treated she would probably get a painkiller: http://hotair.com/archives/2009/07/21/video-let-them-eat-painkillers/ So, with this fresh sad case in mind, does any enterprising REAL NEWS people to find out how OBAMACARE treats someone with Senator McCain's sickness.

    During an interview on the BBC with host Victoria Derbyshire, transgender advocate Caitlyn Jenner said she was considering running for office to promote LGBT issues from within the Republican Party. When asked about going into politics, Jenner said, “I have been asked that question quite a bit, to be honest with you over the next year I’m looking into it."" I want to know, and I have to be very smart about this—where can I do a better job for my community, in bringing the Republican Party around when it comes to all LGBT issues? Is it from the outside?"...

    A mysterious sickness is causing a growing crisis at a North Arlington junior high school. The principal has been replaced; however, as many as 60 teachers and an untold number of students have reported a similar sickness while at the school. Teachers and students from Nichols Junior High have all reported a similar sickness, including dizziness, nausea and difficulty concentrating. It is reported that many teachers have passed out during class. According to sources, some are refusing to return to work, while others request immediate transfers. Some teachers have even begun to hold classes outside, for the safety of the...

    Shares of a key biotech ETF plunged to their lowest point since the election, after President-elect Donald Trump pledged in an interview with Time Magazine to curb spiraling drug prices. In morning trading on the stock market today, the iShares Nasdaq Biotechnology Index (IBB) exchange-traded fund was down more than 3%, near 266. The index had jumped 9% on Nov. 9, after Trump beat Hillary Clinton in the race for the White House, on the belief that high drug prices would not be as big a focus for Trump as it would have been for Clinton.

    I saw the picture in the upper left corner of Drudge, and it sure looks like Hillary after the third debate Wed. evening. Her face looks exactly the way it did at the DNC when the balloons fell and she lost control of herself. So, is there a video of that moment or only the picture? Thanks!

     Hillary Clinton's medical problem at the 9/11 Memorial was not really a fainting spell. Her physician claimed she was overheated and dehydrated, yet the temperature was only 77 degrees in lower Manhattan.  Clinton wobbled and collapsed at the van, and her staffers had to lift and drag her into the vehicle. There is a zoomed-in, slow-motion version of the video showing her handlers supporting her, with her feet dragging behind her. This is like "Weekend at Bernie's." Why was there no chair provided for her to sit in while she waited for her van? Why were there no people right next to her to provide immediate...
  • ROCKIN’ PNEUMONIA: A UNIFYING DIAGNOSIS

    A prominent internist writes with admittedly speculative comments on the diagnosis of pneumonia made public today regarding Hillary Clinton. He writes: During my 19 years as a board certified internist I have taken care of many hundreds of patients with pneumonia. The story about Hillary Clinton being diagnosed with pneumonia raises a red flag as to the cause. It could simply have been a community acquired pneumonia, which means she contracted it as a healthy person living her usual life. This happens occasionally, even to healthy people. If this is the case the timing certainly is unfortunate for her given...

    On Sunday morning, Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton left a September 11 memorial ceremony in New York City after about 90 minutes, with video showing her stumbling towards a car that took her to her daughter Chelsea‘s apartment. The Clinton camp said at the time that she was overheated after standing outside for the memorial, but there was speculation over whether there might be a more serious issue. As it turns out, there was.

And Hillary’s press secretary Brian Fallon responded by mocking Rudy’s prostate cancer that kept him out of the 2000 Senate race: "Google Rudy and health and you can read about how he withdrew from '00 Senate race against Clinton"

    Surrealistic 2016 election campaign, it’s Donald J. Trump versus ‘The Propped up Secret Service President’ The same black, burly Secret Service Agent seen among multiple staffers helping Democratic presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton up the stairs in a Getty still shot “melting the Internet” seems to the same one who rushed to her rescue on Thursday in Las Vegas. A video shows the Secret Service Agent literally running to Clinton telling her ”You’re okay.” “Keep talking” after patting her on the shoulder. Before rushing to her side, Clinton had seemed to freeze and looked visibly bewildered.

    HONOLULU – Gov. David Ige signed SB 2954 (ACT 108) which authorizes county police departments in Hawai‘i to enroll firearms applicants and individuals registering their firearms, in a criminal record monitoring service. The system, also known as the “Rap Back” system, is a service of the Federal Bureau of Investigation that provides continuous criminal record monitoring for authorized government agencies such as law enforcement agencies. The service notifies the agencies when a firearm owner is arrested for a criminal offense anywhere in the country. This will allow county police departments in Hawai‘i to evaluate whether the firearm owner may continue...

    hen the practice of sex-change surgery first emerged back in the early 1970s, I would often remind its advocating psychiatrists that with other patients, alcoholics in particular, they would quote the Serenity Prayer, "God, give me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference." Where did they get the idea that our sexual identity ("gender" was the term they preferred) as men or women was in the category of things that could be changed?Their regular response was to show me their patients.

    A little-known virus is causing a big fuss in Micronesia, the Pacific island nation partly managed by the United States. The Zika virus, spread by mosquitoes, produces an itchy rash, pinkeye, joint pain and fever. Since its discovery 60 years ago in an ill monkey in the Zika forest in Uganda, it has caused rare cases and outbreaks in Africa and Southeast Asia. There is no specific treatment or vaccine. Now Zika has made its first appearance in Micronesia, on the island of Yap, where health officials say there have been at least 42 confirmed cases and 65 probable ones....
