Did you know that Palin's Extramarital Affair


FOX News Is Ignoring Reports About Palin's Extramarital Affair
Reported by Ellen - September 26,

When the National Enquirer broke the news a few months ago about John Edwards' extramarital affair with Rielle Hunter, there was a steady stream of stories and discussions about it on FOX News although Edwards was no longer a candidate by then. Yet FOX News has been ignoring the same tabloid's report about an extramarital affair between current vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin and her husband's former business partner, Brad Hanson.

According to the San Jose Mercury News, the McCain campaign has threatened legal action against the Enquirer. But the Enquirer says it has three sources from Hanson's family, including one who signed a sworn affidavit, and has published the story.

Pretty juicy stuff, eh? Just the kind of thing that FOX News couldn't get enough of when it involved Democrat John Edwards. Hannity & Colmes even devoted a full show to his scandal (plus more segments in other shows). On August 8, 2008, Sean Hannity said, “I applaud the Enquirer” for investigating Edwards because “He's running for president... He's a contender for vice president or was.” But here we have an actual vice presidential candidate and... silence.

Dynasty star Heather Locklear arrested after 'erratic driving while on prescription drugs'

Struggling even to stand up, this picture shows Dynasty actress Heather Locklear being helped from a police car after being stopped for driving under the influence of prescription drugs.
Officers were called after Locklear was seen revving her engine loudly and repeatedly reversing over a pair of sunglasses in a car park in Santa Barbara, California.
She then stumbled about in moving traffic, it is claimed.
Officers help Heather Locklear from her vehicle












Police made the 47-year-old balance on one foot to see if she was sober - but she had to steady herself on a road sign.
Police said a witness, who didn't recognise the star, reported that she had stopped on a nearby highway and left her car, apparently stumbling into traffic.
Alcohol was ruled out after tests but Locklear was charged with driving under the influence of prescription medication and released on £2,700 bail.

Sopranos" actor Lillo Brancato Jr set to go to trial

Sopranos' actor's murder trial set
'
"Sopranos" actor Lillo Brancato Jr. is set to go to trial next month in the death of an off-duty New York police officer.
A judge ruled Friday that Brancato and co-defendant Steven Armento would be tried separately. Prosecutors wanted them tried together.

Armento is accused of firing the fatal shot.

Did you know man sued because doctor stapled a man's rectum shut?

Arguments began Monday in a federal lawsuit alleging that a Maryland doctor stapled a man's rectum shut during an operation, rendering him unable to move his bowels for 17 days, the Baltimore Examiner reported.
Ronald Watkins, 64, of West Virginia, has accused Dr. Manuel Casiano, a doctor in Frederick County, Maryland for botching a September 2004 surgery that left him with permanent bowel problems, according to the report.
But an attorney representing Casiano told jurors the doctor did not staple Watkins' buttocks shut.
Attorney Conrad Varner said Watkins’ bowels became “swollen shut” because of medical problems — not because of stapling and that his two-pack-a-day smoking habit added to his bowel problems, the Examiner reported.
Watkins' attorney, Julia Lodowski argued that the medical error was in fact caused by Casiano and has led Watkins to experience continual “rectal discharge," which requires him to wipe himself between 12 and 15 times a day.
Lodowski said Watkins also needed four “unnecessary surgeries” because of the alleged mistake.

Do you know what cause a Brain Aneurysm?


What is a Brain Aneurysm?A brain aneurysm, also called a cerebral or intracranial aneurysm, is an abnormal bulging outward of one of the arteries in the brain. It is estimated that up to one in 15 people in the United States will develop a brain aneurysm during their lifetime.

Brain aneurysms are often discovered when they rupture, causing bleeding into the brain or the space closely surrounding the brain called the subarachnoid space, causing a subarachnoid hemorrhage. Subarachnoid hemorrhage from a ruptured brain aneurysm can lead to a hemorrhagic stroke, brain damage and death.
The main goals of treatment once an aneurysm has ruptured are to stop the bleeding and potential permanent damage to the brain and to reduce the risk of recurrence. Unruptured brain aneurysms are sometimes treated to prevent rupture. Learn more about treatment options for a brain aneurysm.


Approximately 0.2 to 3 percent of people with a brain aneurysm may suffer from bleeding per year
The annual incidence of aneurysmal subarachnoid hemorrhage in the U.S. exceeds 30,000 people. Ten to 15 percent of these patients will die before reaching the hospital and over 50 percent will die within the first thirty days after rupture. Of those who survive, about half suffer some permanent neurological deficit
Brain aneurysms can occur in people of all ages, but are most commonly detected in those ages 35 to 60
Women are actually more likely to get a brain aneurysm than men, with a ratio of 3:2


An aneurysm is an abnormal widening or ballooning of a portion of a blood vessel. A cerebral aneurysm refers to a blood vessel within your brain that weakens over time and undergoes such widening. This usually occurs at the junctions of the large arteries at the base of your brain, in an area called the Circle of Willis.

As the blood vessel weakens, it begins to bulge out like a balloon. Often, as an aneurysm develops, it forms a neck with an associated dome, or balloon like structure. The larger the balloon becomes, the greater the risk it may burst. You would then bleed into your brain.
Autopsy studies have revealed that 3-6% of adults in the United States have aneurysms inside their brains. Fortunately, many of these aneurysms are small and not at risk to break. The rates of aneurysms found by accident when other studies are performed suggest that 8-10 million Americans have brain aneurysms. About 20-30% of people with an aneurysm will have more than 1. Each year, for every 100 people with an aneurysm, roughly 1 of them will suffer a rupture or break—a condition known as subarachnoid hemorrhage.

Currently no one can predict which aneurysms will rupture. Data suggest that aneurysms that rupture tend to be larger than 10 mm (0.4 in). About 25,000-30,000 cases of ruptured aneurysms occur in the US each year. About 40% of the people who suffer bleeding from an aneurysm die within the first month. Approximately another one third have residual major nervous system problems but survive.

Many are left with long-term memory problems. They may have difficulty in the following: thinking, perception, and performing simple daily activities.
People who have survived a rupture of a brain aneurysm are twice as likely as the general population to develop another aneurysm. If a second aneurysm occurs, these people are 6 times more likely to have another ruptured aneurysm and bleeding in their brain.


Aneurysms in the brain are considered to be acquired problems. They are not present at birth. Rather, they develop over a lifetime.
Other evidence indicates that genetic factors make some people more likely to develop brain aneurysms. The exact pattern of inheritance is not clear.
According to several studies, up to 20% of people with bleeding from an aneurysm have a first- or second-degree relative with a brain aneurysm.
These relatives are at higher risk for bleeding in the brain.
In most families with brain aneurysms, the condition affects only 2-3 members of the extended family, and the method of inheritance is not apparent. Associated conditions - A number of conditions are associated with brain aneurysms, as follows:
Polycystic kidney disease - A genetic disorder characterized by the growth of numerous cysts in the kidneys
Ehlers-Danlos syndrome - A group of inherited connective tissue disorders characterized by extreme flexibility of joints, easily stretched skin and easily damaged tissue
Marfan syndrome - An inherited disorder of connective tissue, the glue and the scaffolding of your body, which leads to tissue with less strength and that can rupture easier
Neurofibromatosis - A group of 8 genetic disorders of the nervous system that primarily affect the development and growth of nerve cell tissues (These disorders cause tumors to grow on nerves and produce other abnormalities such as skin changes and bone deformities.) Environmental factors: Significant evidence suggests that environmental factors make some people more likely to develop brain aneurysms.
Brain aneurysms are very rare in children.

With Tobacco use, Cigarette smoking is the only factor that has been consistently demonstrated to increase the risk of ruptured aneurysm.
Sustaining a rupture of a brain aneurysm is about 10 times more likely in a smoker than in a nonsmoker.
The more cigarettes smoked, the higher the risk.

High blood pressure
Several studies have shown an increased risk for the development and rupture of brain aneurysms in people with high blood pressure.
Most experts believe that high blood pressure remains a risk factor but not to the extent that cigarette smoking is a risk.


The effect of high cholesterol remains unclear.
Three studies have looked at high cholesterol as a risk factor for aneurysm and rupture. Two studies showed no association and one study showed a relationship.
Alcohol consumption
A moderate to high level of alcohol use is considered a risk factor for the rupture of a brain aneurysm.
It is unclear if alcohol use increases the risk of developing an aneurysm.

Binge drinking appears to dramatically increase the risk of subarachnoid hemorrhage from a ruptured aneurysm.
