T-Mobile Wi-Fi 3:10 PM 0 www.pedimom.com We were sitting on the floor of the bathroom watching YouTube Kids to distract him from the bleed, when I saw it. It was a simple, innocent cartoon until it happened. Four minutes and forty-five seconds into the video, a man quickly walked onto the screen, held his arm out, and taught the children watching this video how to properly kill themselves. What did I just see? Did I really just see that? I immediately turned off the video. My son's nose stopped bleeding, and I further investigated the video in private while he went to play. I watched it again, certain that I had dreamt it up. I know YouTube had some sick videos, but I thought YouTube Kids was safe. They sure make it seem like it is. But no. There it was again.

Four minutes and forty-five seconds into the video. The man quickly walked in, held his arm out, and tracing his forearm, said, "Kids, remember, cut this way for attention, and this way for results," and then quickly walked off. Not much shocks me. I'm a physician, I work in the emergency department. I've seen a lot. But this did. This video was intentionally planted on YouTube Kids to harm our children. He waited until parents' guards were down, thinking their kids were just watching a harmless cartoon when he made his entrance four minutes and forty-five seconds into this video.

T-Mobile Wi-Fi 3:11 PM 0 www.pedimom.com How can YouTube Kids trick parents into thinking their content is safe? What else do our children seen on these apps? I reported the video and asked my friends and family to report. Hours later though, it is still up, and I wonder how many children have seen this video since. Those apps are all now deleted and will never return to our household. I am disturbed, I am saddened, I am disgusted. But I am also relieved that I was there to see this video with my own eyes, so that I could take the appropriate actions to protect my family. I would recommend everyone reading this to take these same steps as well. Today I was grateful for my son's nosebleed. UPDATE: PediMom was able to get this particular video removed from YouTube Kids therefore it is no longer ahle tn he viewed This Majesty Ria Followv @ToriNicksWho ATTENTION: Do not leave your children unsupervised with YouTube.

Being Alone, Children, and Comfortable: IA THEMETAPICTURE.COM Two men, both seriously ill, occupied the same hospital room. One man was allowed to sit up in his bed for an hour each afternoon to help drain the fluid from his lungs. His bed was next to the room's only window. The other man had to spend all his time flat on his back. The men talked for hours on end. They spoke of their wives and families, their homes, their jobs, their involvement in the military service, where they had been on vacation. Every afternoon when the man in the bed by the window could sit up, he would pass the time by describing to his roommate all the things he could see outside the window The man in the other bed began to live for those one hour iods where his world would be broadened and enlivened by all the activity and color of the world outside. The window overlooked a park with a lovely lake. Ducks and swans played on the water while children sailed their model boats. Young lovers walked arm in arm amidst flowers of every color and a fine view of the city skyline could be seen in the distance. As the man by the window described all this in exquisite detail, the man on the other side of the room would close his eyes and imagine the picturesque scene. One warm afternoon the man by the window describeda parade passing by. Although the other man couldn't hear the band -he could see it. In his mind's eye as the gentleman by the window portrayed it with descriptive words. Days and weeks passed. e morning, the day nurse arrived to bring water for their baths only to find the lifeless body of the man by the window, who had died peacefully in his sleep. She was saddened and called the hospital attendants to take the body away. As soon as it seemed appropriate, the other man asked if he could be moved next to the window. The nurse was happy to make the switch, and after making sure he was comfortable, she left him alone. Slowly, painfully, he propped himself up on one elbow to take his first look at the real world outside. He strained to slowly turn to look out the window beside the bed.. it faced a blank wall The man asked the nurse what could have compelled his deceased roommate who had described such wonderful things outside this window. The nurse responded that the man was blind and could not even see the wall "Perhaps he just wanted to encourage you," she said. Epilogue There is tremendous happiness in making others happy, despite our own situations. Shared grief is half the sorrow, but happiness when shared, is doubled. If you want to feel rich, just count all of the things you have that money can't buy. And share it.

Dick’s did not aim at the NRA, Dick’s took DIRECT ACTION, changing their own gun sale policies and calling on politicians to change the laws. (That’s the TL;DR.) Dick’s Sporting Goods has said: “We at DICK’S Sporting Goods are deeply disturbed and saddened by the tragic events in Parkland. Our thoughts and prayers are with all of the victims and their loved ones. But thoughts and prayers are not enough. We have tremendous respect and admiration for the students organizing and making their voices heard regarding gun violence in schools and elsewhere in our country. We have heard you. The nation has heard you. We support and respect the Second Amendment, and we recognize and appreciate that the vast majority of gun owners in this country are responsible, law-abiding citizens. But we have to help solve the problem that’s in front of us. Gun violence is an epidemic that’s taking the lives of too many people, including the brightest hope for the future of America – our kids. Following all of the rules and laws, we sold a shotgun to the Parkland shooter in November of 2017. It was not the gun, nor type of gun, he used in the shooting. But it could have been. Clearly this indicates on so many levels that the systems in place are not effective to protect our kids and our citizens. We believe it’s time to do something about it. Beginning today, DICK’S Sporting Goods is committed to the following: We will no longer sell assault-style rifles, also referred to as modern sporting rifles. We had already removed them from all DICK’S stores after the Sandy Hook massacre, but we will now remove them from sale at all 35 Field Stream stores. We will no longer sell firearms to anyone under 21 years of age.    We will no longer sell high capacity magazines. We never have and never will sell bump stocks that allow semi-automatic weapons to fire more rapidly. At the same time, we implore our elected officials to enact common sense gun reform and pass the following regulations: Ban assault-style firearms Raise the minimum age to purchase firearms to 21 Ban high capacity magazines and bump stocks Require universal background checks that include relevant mental health information and previous interactions with the law Ensure a complete universal database of those banned from buying firearms   Close the private sale and gun show loophole that waives the necessity of background checks We hope others join us in this effort to let our kids know that their pleas are being taken seriously.Some will say these steps can’t guarantee tragedies like Parkland will never happen again. They may be correct – but if common sense reform is enacted and even one life is saved, it will have been worth it. We deeply believe that this country’s most precious gift is our children.

Apparently, Bones, and Family: 14-Year-Old Boy Who Traveled To Miami From Cuba To Remove 10-Pound Tumor From His Face, Has Died @balleralert 14-Year-Old Boy Who Traveled To Miami From Cuba To Remove 10-Pound Tumor From His Face, Has Died - blogged by @MsJennyb ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Last month, a 14-year-old and his family traveled to Miami from Cuba to remove a 10-pound tumor from his face. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Back in September, a Miami specialist offered to assist in the removal of the large tumor after learning of the young boy’s story. Emanuel Zayas was diagnosed with polyostotic fibrous dysplasia, which reportedly replaces bones with fibrous tissue. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ At age 11, what physicians believed to be a pimple, turned out to be an ossifying fibroma- which has since grown into a 10-pound tumor. According to reports, the tumor began to affect Zayas’ breathing, as well as the bone structure of his face. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Although Cuban doctors refused to perform the risky surgery, a specialist at UHealth-University of Miami Health System offered his assistance. In turn, the family flew out to Miami, grateful to God that the specialist agreed to work on their son’s potentially fatal tumor. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ However, since then, the family has confirmed that Zayas has unfortunately passed in the wake of the 12-hour procedure. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ "I am saddened by the fact that we are losing him and that the physiological stress of the surgery was apparently too much for his compromised anatomy," the chief of oral and maxillofacial surgery for the University of Miami Health System said in a statement to the Herald. "Our hopes of saving his life, and with that allowing him a better quality of life, were not realized." ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ "Our condolences and prayers for Emanuel's family and the loss of a very brave young man," Marx said, according to NBC 6. "Another angel has arrived in heaven."

Bad, Love, and Period: CRYBABY Follow I am horrified and saddened by the statements and story told tonight by Timothy Heller. What she and I shared was a close friendship for a period of time. We came into each other's lives as we were both starting our careers as artists, and we tried to help each other. We both had pain in dealing with our individual demons and the new paths we were forging, but I truly felt we were trying to lift each other up. She never said no to what we chose to do together. And although we parted ways, I am sending her love and light always. 11:37 PM-4 Dec 2017 <p><a href="https://therealhoneyestbadger.tumblr.com/post/168235585915/the-jingle-birdy-libertarirynn-im-getting" class="tumblr_blog">therealhoneyestbadger</a>:</p> <blockquote><p><a href="http://the-jingle-birdy.tumblr.com/post/168234598588/libertarirynn-im-getting-really-bad-vibes-from" class="tumblr_blog">the-jingle-birdy</a>:</p> <blockquote><p><a href="https://libertarirynn.tumblr.com/post/168234503224/im-getting-really-bad-vibes-from-this-response-i" class="tumblr_blog">libertarirynn</a>:</p><blockquote> <p>I’m getting really bad vibes from this response.

According to Timothy Heller‘s account (Timothy is a female and Melanie‘s alleged victim, just so there’s no confusion), Melanie continue to beg and harass her and after Timothy made it very clear that she did not want to do it, she was too broken down to continue insisting that she stop once Melanie went on and did it anyway.

Heller claims that during a sleepover Melanie begged and harassed her for two nights straight to have sex, and despite Heller’s continuing turning her down, Melanie decided to perform oral sex and penetrate her with a sex toy. Heller says she did not directly fight her off because at that point she had been broken down, but as we all know silence does not equal consent. Anyway Martinez responded by basically acknowledging that sex happened, but claiming that it was consensual because “she never said no“. Very careful wording there. Taken right out of the sex offender’s handbook. We all know that if a man gave a response like that he would be hanging on the cross by now.</p>

Notice how instead of saying “it was consensual” or even “she said yes” Melanie says “she didn’t say no.” This is pulled straight from the book of “excuses rapists use to justify their actions;” despite the fact that it’s likely a lie (Timothy says that she said no multiple times and I’m obligated to believe her because why tf would she lie about that) even if it is true is doesn’t make what happened not rape. If Timothy was coerced and pressured into sex it doesn’t matter if she “didn’t say no” or even if she said yes. She was manipulated, making this a rape.</p> <p>- Admission of engaging in sexual activity with Timothy flushes those bullshit “they were just casual acquantainces” and “Timothy is just jealous of Melanie’s fame” theories down the toilets. I hope everyone who claimed that feels real fucking disgusting right now.</p> <p>- Melanie has dug her own grave by simultaneously asserting that a) she initiated sex with Timothy and b) she terminated their friendship shortly after, which is a blatant signal of manipulation; inspiring complete dependency, followed by abandonment, cultivating trust issues and emotional trauma that will last a lifetime. I know because this has happened to me, multiple times. It’s an abuse tactic and it needs to be taken seriously.</p> <p>tweet src: <span><a href="https://mobile.twitter.com/MelanieLBBH/status/937949003777372162">https://mobile.twitter.com/MelanieLBBH/status/937949003777372162</a></span></p></blockquote>
