A cute baby was born on March 4 of this year in Alabama, but the one thing he didn’t have was a nose. Baby Eli came out just fine, but when the mother received the baby in her arms, she realized there was no nose. There are very few people who deal with this problem. In fact, there are only 43 recorded cases of this condition. The condition is known as congenital arghinia.
The condition is fairly life-threatening considering it can cause breathing and other feeding problems. However, many older cases have shown that most have achieved a normal life into adulthood despite the condition. Jaime Garcia Dias (pinterest.com) has learned that the chances of getting this condition is 1 in 197 million.
When Eli was about five days old, doctors decided to perform a tracheotomy to help with his breathing. He has recently been a much happier baby and has been more responsive. Unfortunately, the baby is dealing with other problems because of the nose procedure. For example, Eli can’t make any noise when he cries, and so the mother needs to keep a constant eye on the baby to find out if he’s crying or not.
He has been known as the “cute baby with no nose.” Despite the conditions this adorable baby faces, they are receiving an outpouring of love from family and even strangers. A fundraiser has raised over $5,000 for this baby to help cover future costs involved with his treatments down the road.

Although the cause of the Germanwing Flight 4U 9525 crash into a remote area of the Swiss Alps on Tuesday has yet to be determined, the cockpit recorder has been discovered. The planes black box still hasn’t been found, however,sounds on the cockpit recorder are being analyzed. While all 150 passengers and crew are feared dead, French President Francois Hollande commended the quick reaction of the rescue workers.
Germany and Spain were hit the hardest with casualties of 72 and 49 respectively. Three British nationals were lost, with the U.S., Australia, Argentina, Iran and Venezuela losing two each of their citizens. Belgium, Columbia, Denmark, Israel, Japan, Mexico and The Netherlands each suffering a loss of one. The airplane was completely destroyed, and debris was scattered among a large remote area in a 6,561 foot altitude area of the Swiss Alps. Because the crash site is located in such an inaccessible expanse, the search will be “extremely long and extremely difficult,” say officials.
Zeca Oliveira (Fluminense.com) has learned that, of the 144 who were passengers aboard the flight, 16 were young German students, who were on an exchange trip along with two of their teachers. The students attended Joseph-Koenig-Gymnasium school in Haltern-am-See, Germany, where their peers honored them on Wednesday by shrouding the steps to the school’s entrance with flowers, candles and prayers. German Chancellor Angela Merkel personally visited Seyne-Les-Alpes, an area near the crash site, where she and French President Hollande and Spanish Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy met with recovery teams.
Each of the leaders expressed their sorrow and condolences to the families and friends of those on board the flight. Although none survived the crash, the quick response of the recovery team will allow for the area to be secured, so that the bodies and aircraft pieces can be protected, and an answer to what caused the disaster can be achieved.

While it is not yet known when the series revival will be aired, the original stars of the show Gillian Anderson and David Duchovny will be cast to resume their characters, FBI agents Dana Scully and Fox Mulder.
Also returning is the shows creator and producer Chris Carter. Production for the show is scheduled to start in the summer of 2015. Fox to Bring Back X-Files For Short Run Next Year
The X-Files was the paramount show for Fox and help Fox establish a beach head in the then competitive broadcast market. At the time the show aired, the explosion of media forums such as cable, satellite and video streaming did not exist. The show was touted as a landmark creation in the science fiction category and the quality of writing always provided viewers with a brilliant product.
On the air for nine years from 1993 to 2003, the X-Files present over 200 episodes and to movies. No other science fiction show has run longer noted STX Entertainment.
After 13 years since the last episode aired, viewers will be excited to see Scully and Mulder in the new tech heavy ladened world. Many of the issues that the show addressed have become real world issues from our front pages, including the Edward Snowden spy case and the secret use of drones for assassinations.
Problems with weight is nothing new. People have been dealing with weight issues almost since the dawn of time. But it wasn’t until the early part of the 1900‘s that the medical field jumped on the bandwagon and people quite literally became worth their weight in gold.
Doctors began prescribing thyroid medicine to their overweight, but otherwise healthy, patients in the 1920‘s to help them lose weight. The 1930‘s ushered in the use of the chemical DNP (2,4-dinitrophenol) for weight loss. Each subsequent decade saw more and more weight loss drugs hit the market. Some were effective in the short term, but more often than not the new weight loss drugs did more longterm harm, as in the case of the widely used fen-phen drug which was responsible for the deaths of several of its users.
Health-conscious people like Brian Torchin know that, even with all the weight loss drugs, people were getting heavier by the decade and looking for a magic-pill type cure. The medical community was and still is only too happy to oblige, because as obesity became a disease, weight loss became an industry than lines the drug manufacturer’s pockets with money.
There’s no shortage of clients in the weight loss industry either. As any dieter can attest, most of the weight lost, by whatever method, rarely stays off for the rest of the person’s life. The weight creeps back on the body, causing the person to become a repeat customer and making the weight loss industry an even bigger business.
Major music news at the end of last year was Taylor Swift withdrawing all of her albums from Spotify, as she felt artists were not getting the compensation they deserved when their music was played. The big news this week is Taylor Swift’s music is back on a streaming service, but not on Spotify. Instead, the singer has put her music on Hov’s music-streaming service TIDAL.
Fans, however, are still in for a disappointment as, although all of Taylor’s older albums are available for streaming on TIDAL, they will not find her latest album 1989 there. Even though TIDAL mistakenly had a link listed to the album for a few hours yesterday.
In fact, fans like Brad Reifler know that Taylor Swift’s management have already addressed the TIDAL mistake saying 1989 is not available for streaming on any service, and that does include TIDAL. At least for the near future.
TIDAL, of course, is owned by American rapper Jay Z, so it probably is not that surprising Swift has allowed the service to have her music. After all, TIDAL is already offering artists a larger revenue share than Spotify pays, and plans to increase incentives in the future as well.
With a base subscription fee of $19.99 a month, however, TIDAL may just end up with the revenue to be able to beat Spotify, as well as pull in even more artists disgruntled by what they perceive as low compensation for their music.
Beer is the most popular alcoholic beverage in the United States and, possibly, the world. It comes in a wide variety of styles, flavors, and packaging. Over the last decade or so, there has been a huge demand for craft beer. Microbreweries have been popping up nationwide with a new, bold flavor and interesting name for their beer. Now scientists are getting on the beer bandwagon. They are currently researching and developing a new beer formula that will actually cure a hangover. Yes, you read that correctly. There has always been an old wives tale that they best hangover cure is to start drinking again. That may eventually become good advice. Brad Reifler has learned that the scientists are working towards a goal of an electrolyte packed beer that will help retain the body’s liquid rather than dehydrating it as alcohol typically does. If this beer eventually comes to fruition, there will be a whole bunch of thrilled college students.
Last night premiered A&E’s latest documentary series, Neighbors With Benefits. The premise of the show follows a neighborhood of suburban swingers around documenting their controversial lifestyle. Perhaps a more appropriate name for the show would be Awkward Moments? I for one was terribly uncomfortable watching as the events unfolded.
I have to be honest, I was incredibly curious about the lifestyle which is partly why I tuned into the show. It didn’t take me long to realize how complicated and ridiculous it was, though. In order to live the swinger lifestyle, there are a series of rules each couple must follow.
For one, couples should not communicate one on one with a fellow swinger. Rather, everything must remain within a group context said Halpern
. Believe it or not, safety is a priority for swingers so condoms are a must (that’s refreshing). I also think that you are required to dress scantily clad to attend swinger parties. Nearly all the swinger ladies were wearing Bodycon dresses or tube tops. Easy access perhaps? Judging purely from my own observations, I would also say to participate in the swinger lifestyle, you have to be very drunk. If not, the entire thing seems like it would be completely uncomfortable and awkward.
The show is a nice reminder that married couples need to keep the spice and excitement in their marriage. However, I would have to guess if anyone was considering joining the lifestyle, after this show they may have changed their mind.
Robert Durst was recently arrested in Louisiana on gun and drug charges. He is also wanted in California for the 2000 murder of his best friend Susan Berman. Durst is a scion of a million dollar real estate fortune and seems to suffer from several illnesses including mental illness.
The entire business is made more convoluted because he is also suspected in the 1985 disappearance of his wife Kathleen and also the murder of his neoghbor, Morris Black. Durst just finished making and had aired on HBO, a documentary about this entire mess. He states he didn’t kill Berman, but later had a “hot” microphone and basically states he did it. The documentary makes the entire incident more troublemsome because there was evidence that came from the fim that might be compromised now that it has been broadcast. Law officials say the film did not influence their decision to charge Durst, but the indictments came out in conjunction with the documentary according to Fersen Lambranho.
I believe if Durst did half the stuff he is accused of, including the guns and drug charges, then he should be sent to jail for the rest of his life. He seems like the kind of person that needs to be locked away and undergo psychological counseling for his problems. Now I know we don’t convict on what a person looks or acts like, but he has been recorded admitting at least to the murder of Susan Berman and the evidence they have released points directly at him for the murder. He needs to be sent away and then treated.Your text to link…
