Springfield, Missouri: Pedophile's Child Rape Victim Given Suicide Drugs By Doctors
Daniel H. France 2440 Chandler Drive Springfield, MO 65865
A victim of child sex abuse, who suffered severe anorexia, chronic depression, and hallucinations as a result of her ordeal, was given a lethal injection by doctors who declared that her post-traumatic stress disorder and other conditions were incurable.
The woman, who was in her 20s, suffered sexual abuse at the age of 5 to 15 years old and chose to end her life under Dutch euthanasia laws because she couldn't live with her mental suffering after doctors told her that treatment was hopeless.
She was allowed to undergo euthanasia via lethal injection despite doctors noting a considerable improvement in her condition 2 years ago following "intensive therapy".
Treatment was abandoned last year after independent consultants were called in and said the case was hopeless.
Doctors in the Netherlands also agree that demands for death from a psychiatric patient may be no more than a cry for help.
According to the report, the patient was "totally competent" and there was 'no major depression or other mood disorder which affected her thinking'.
A final GP's report approved the "termination of life" order and the woman was killed by an injection of lethal drugs, the report said.
Nikki Kenward, from disability rights group Distant Voices, said:
"It is both horrifying and worrying that mental health professionals could regard euthanasia in any form as an answer to the complex and deep wounds that result from sexual abuse."
According to the Daily Mail, The woman, who has not been named, began to suffer from mental disorders 15 years ago following sexual abuse, according to the papers released by the Dutch Euthanasia Commission.
The timescale means she was abused between the ages of five and 15.
News of her death angered anti-euthanasia and disability campaigners in everywhere. One Labour MP said it meant sex abuse victims were now being punished with death.
One British politician said it meant sex abuse victims were now being punished with death, saying:
"It almost sends the message that if you are the victim of abuse, and as a result, you get a mental illness, you are punished by being killed, that the punishment for the crime of being a victim is death."
"It serves to reinforce why any move toward legalizing assisted suicide, or assisted dying, is so dangerous."
The papers said that the woman had post-traumatic stress disorder that was resistant to treatment.
Her condition included severe anorexia, chronic depression, and suicidal mood swings, tendencies to self-harm, hallucinations, obsessions, and compulsions krachai dam wholesale.
She also had physical difficulties and was almost entirely bedridden.
Her psychiatrist said, "there was no prospect or hope for her. The patient experienced her suffering as unbearable".
However, the papers also disclosed that two years before her death the woman's doctors called for a second opinion, and on the advice of the new doctors she had an intensive course of trauma therapy.
"This treatment was temporarily partially successful," the documents said.
Sumatra Pasak Bumi Treatment was abandoned last year after independent consultants were called in and said the case was hopeless.
The consultants also said that despite her "intolerable" physical and mental suffering, chronic depression and mood swings, she was entirely competent to make the decision to take her own life.
Springfield, Massachusetts: Average penis size around the world revealed – but how do UK men measure-up?
Coy S. Coffman 1213 Kinney Street Springfield, MA 01103
Whether you are well endowed or lacking in the trouser department wholesale, most guys have wondered whether their todger measures up to the average.
In fact it can make lots of men self-conscious but the results of a new study show that, unsurprisingly, lots of guys lie about the size of their manhood.
A survey by dating website SaucyDates.com asked men from different countries to estimate the length of their erect penis while asking women about the erect size of their last sexual partner.
Then researchers revealed the nationalities that are most prone to lying about penis size – and which ones are the most truthful.
It turns out Australian lads are most likely to overestimate how much they’re really packing Down Under.
Aussie men reported their average penis size as 7.09 inches, but the Sheilas say a normal guy’s schlong measures 5.58 inches.
But how did the Brits measure up?
Lads from the UK reckoned their penises measure 6.89 inches long but women think they’re smaller.
Ladies said guys fall shorter than that, revealing that men tend to be packing 6.64 inches downstairs.
And Canadians were found to be the most modest about their goods .
Men estimated the regular schlong to be 6.84 inches in length while ladies boasted of the biggest sized schlong of all – coming in at 6.96 inches.
Researchers said: “If you ask a man the size of their penis in general you should subtract 5.6% off the total length, mathematically speaking, of course.
“But if he claims to be 8 inches or more then you can cancel that call to trade descriptions or better business bureau.
“If you are looking for a monstrous-sized penis then you should focus your efforts on tongkat ali UK men as 1 in 20 will have enough inches to need a bigger ruler.
“If you want to play it safe and go for a good all round size and infallible honestly then Canada is the country for you and avoid the Americas or Australians who think lying increases your size like Pinocchio.”
North Highlands, California: Arson as a weapon
Dustin M. Miller 3935 Pearl Street North Highlands, CA 95659
The riots of 1929, which erupted over the Arabs' objection to changes in the arrangement for Jewish prayer at the Western Wall in Jerusalem, were one of the first serious outbreaks of violence among the Arab population of prestate Israel. A total of 133 Jews were murdered and hundreds more wounded. Dozens of Jewish communities were attacked and set on fire, some of them completely burned down . The most serious example was the ancient Jewish community of Hebron, where dozens of Jewish residents were slaughtered by their Arab neighbors.
These riots inspired the unforgettable poem by Emanuel Harusi, "Schav B'ni" ("Lie down, my son"), a poem about a young father worried about his little boy in the midst of the bloody events taking place around them. We cannot help but recall these lines from the poem: "The silo at Tel Yosef is burning / and smoke is also rising from Beit Alfa / But don't cry anymore now, rest and go to sleep / Night, night, a night of fire that will devour the harvest and the straw / We must not, must not despair / tomorrow we will begin again."
Arson was, and remains, part of the story of the Jewish-Arab struggle for Israel, going back to its earliest days. That was how it was in the 1929 riots, and that's how it was during the massive Arab revolt of the mid-1930s and during the more recent intifadas, especially the fire in the Carmel National Forest in the summer of 1989 and throughout the First Intifada.
The Palestinian war on Israel has seen ups and downs, as well as innovations, some of which turn out to be imitations of methods used in the past. Indeed, every time the Palestinian battle reaches an impasse and appears to be dying down, someone will always seek out and find new-old tactics. Sometimes, it's a calculated moved planned by the leaders of some group, and sometimes it's outbreaks of local, even spontaneous, violence.
The waves of terrorism 10 years ago showed what a disaster a lone terrorist carrying a bomb could create. After the Shin Bet security agency and the Israel Defense Forces found a solution to those waves of attacks, it was time for waves of stabbings or car ramming attacks, which we have seen for more than a year now. And once it appeared that those, too, were wearing thin, it was time to set fires.
We can assume that in the next few days, as long as the weather cooperates, the same lone actors -- some of whom are youths influenced by online incitement -- will try to imitate earlier arson attacks. The rain that is on its way will wash away the traces of the fire and bring this wave of attacks to an end, until next year.
This wave of attacks must be addressed mainly on the preventative level. It is inconceivable that a few lone terrorists, or even a single one, can set a fire that forces tens of thousands of Haifa residents to evacuate their homes. Past experience has taught us that sooner or later, we'll find a solution butea superba.
What should be of concern, other than the immediate efforts to capture the arsonists, is the push they're getting, mainly on social media, both from the Palestinian public and the Arab world. It's encouraging to see Egypt, Jordan and even the Palestinian Authority officially step up and help Israel battle the fires, but it's depressing to discover how much hatred toward Israel still simmers in the Arab world. These are the embers that must be stamped out to prevent the next fire.
The Palestinians have cause to worry, too. The regression nearly 100 years back to fires, and before that to stabbings -- mostly the work of lone individuals -- indicates that the Palestinians are going back to the starting point of the conflict, as if 100 years hadn't passed and the Palestinian national movement, which today oversees a government entity in Judea and Samaria, had never been founded. The Palestinian national movement is on the brink of collapse, having achieved nothing and reached a dead end. The actions of individuals when no path forward exists say it all.
But we can take comfort in the condemnations by individuals and by the Palestinian Authority, which, unlike Hamas, even sent teams of firefighters to help battle the blazes. This shows that even when no diplomatic solution is on the horizon, large parts of both peoples understand the need to live peacefully side by side, and even with each other.
Black River, New York: Cannabis As An Aphrodisiac? The Evidence Is Mounting
Arthur Y. Loveless 3700 Saint Marys Avenue Black River, NY 13612
What do oysters, strawberries and cannabis have in common?
According to a new report, all three may be considered aaza powerful aphrodisiacs.
A new study published in the Pharmacological Research journal is lending further credence to the long-held theory that cannabis could be your best friend in the bedroom.
In the study, researchers from the University of Catania in Italy and Charles University and Masaryk University in the Czech Republic reviewed a number of investigations conducted in the 1970s and 80s on the effects of cannabis on sexual desire and satisfaction.
What they discovered was that people who consumed cannabis before sex experienced “aphrodisiac effects” in roughly half of the reported cases, while 70 percent claimed that pre-coitus consumption led to “enhancement in pleasure and satisfaction.”
One of the examined studies was that of Erich Goode, a former professor of sociology at Stony Brook University, in 1970. Goode found that frequent, moderate cannabis use could be linked with aphrodisiac effects in approximately 50 percent of users surveyed and increased pleasure in about 70 percent of subjects.
A 1983 study published in The Journal of Sex Research supported Goode’s findings, writing that about half of surveyed cannabis users reported increased sexual desire and about two thirds reported increased sexual pleasure after consuming cannabis.
In these studies, details like how much and how often participants smoked held considerable weight. For example, smoking roughly 50 joints over a six-month period proved beneficial, while smoking fewer than one joint a week resulted in a dramatic decrease in sexually enhancing effects, according to Goode’s research .
In a 1974 study, CEO and president of the Human Vaccine Project Wayne Koff found that a single joint was sexually stimulating, while higher doses made sexual satisfaction more challenging, meaning “less is more.”
The lesson here? Next time you’re looking to spice things up in the bedroom with any number of time-consuming recipes or complex toys , consider lighting up - albeit briefly - instead.
Miami, Florida: Simultaneous identification and quantitation of 11 flavonoid constituents in Kaempferia parviflora by gas chromatography
Leon C. Bell 1555 Golden Street Miami, FL 33139
Kaempferia parviflora (Krachaidum; KD) is a Thai herb, the rhizomes of which have been used in folk medicine and ritual ceremonies. The increasing use of KD has led to concerns regarding the variation of quality, potency and efficacy of KD products. A gas chromatographic method was developed and validated using 11 flavonoids that had been fully characterized as reference. Limits of detection ranged from a low of 0.1 ppm to a high of 1.0 ppm. The limits of quantitation were a low of 0.5 ppm (5-hydroxy-3,7-dimethoxyflavone) to a high of 3.0 ppm (5,7,4′-trimethoxyflavone and 5,7,3′,4′-tetramethoxyflavone). Precision of intra- and inter-day analyses gave a RSD range of 3.02–8.25 and 2.84–12.37, respectively. The diversity of flavonoid content and their distribution profiles in KD samples from 12 different origins was investigated using the validated method. Total flavonoid content in these samples ranged from 23.86 to 60.98 mg/g. Two of the compounds, 5,7-dimethoxyflavone and 5,7,4′-trimethoxyflavone, emerged as major constituents. Samples contained as much as 21.68 and 9.88 mg/g, respectively. Two distinct patterns of the distribution of the flavonoids, as characterized by the ratio of these two compounds in the KD rhizome samples, were observed. This method is expected to be useful in the quantitative and qualitative analyses of the flavonoid content of KD samples and as a quality control assessment of KD raw materials and products.
