    The eight-year-old boy left paralyzed in the Highland Park Fourth of July parade shooting is struggling emotionally as he comes to terms with the new reality of his life, family members said. Cooper Roberts, whose spine was severed when Robert Crimo, 21, shot him through the abdomen in July, feels 'hopeless, sad, and angry as the reality of his life is setting in,' his family wrote in an update on the boy's GoFundMe page yesterday. 'Cooper is in constant pain. It is agonizing to see,' his family wrote, 'He still has internal damage - wounds that are slow to heal.' Cooper's family has provided continual updates in the 44 days since he was shot, describing in harrowing detail the injuries which left him paralyzed from the waist down. His family said, however, that the outpouring of support he has received from the public continues to make Cooper happy, and shared photos of him flashing a thumbs up from a wheel chair and smiling in a standing-wheelchair. He was also recently reunited with his dog, a French bulldog named George.

    An Alabama death row inmate was subjected to three hours of pain during his execution, the longest recorded lethal injection process in US history, according to a report by a human rights organization. Joe Nathan James Jr., 50, was convicted and sentenced to death for the 1994 fatal shooting of his girlfriend, Faith Hall, 26, in Birmingham. Examination by Reprieve US estimates that officials at the Atmore, Alabama, correctional facility took between three and three and half hours to carry out James' lethal injection.  William C. Holman Correctional Facility set James' execution for 6 pm on July 28, though media were barred from entering until 8:57 pm Then, James was pronounced dead at 9:27 pm Evaluation of the autopsy reveals that officials unsuccessfully tried for more than three hours to insert an IV line. The execution team then attempted a cut-down procedure, according to Reprieve US, which would have caused James to struggle and leave him with injuries on his hands and wrists.

    When the retired doctor and his wife fled their home in Ukraine, they took only the most precious things with them – a white linen tablecloth with pink edges hand stitched by her great great grandmother and a spoonful of dirt from her garden she keeps in a heart-shaped box. Anatolii and Mariia Maslianchuk are in their 70s and hold on to hope that they will return to the home they shared for 50 years, the one they opened for days and weeks at a time to refugees from the eastern part of the country needing shelter from the worst of the war. Now they, too, are refugees, resettling in Palo Alto as guests of the Moldaw Family Residences, a retirement community with Jewish roots that is sponsoring them with free housing and meals. Mariia Maslianchuk packed this heart-shaped box with holy water and bread and a spoonful of earth from her garden before she and her husband, Anatolli, fled their home in a Ukrainian village in April 2022. The Moldaw retirement community in Palo Alto is giving them free...

    A man in California says he has been infected with COVID and monkeypox at the same time in the first known case in America. Mitcho Thompson, a cannabis salesman in Sebastopol, tested positive for the pandemic virus in late June after feeling 'wiped out'. Days later, red lesions erupted across his back, legs, arms and neck, which he said doctors diagnosed as monkeypox. Thompson was bedridden for weeks as trouble breathing and chills left him barely able to get up for water. Dr. Dean Winslow, an infectious diseases expert at Stanford University, said it was possible for someone to be infected by both viruses at once. He said Thompson had had 'incredibly bad luck'. It comes as America's monkeypox tally surges to 2,593 cases — the second highest tally in the world, right behind Spain, which has 3,125 cases.

    Share this: He’s not as pretty as the model who was given our borough’s name. Nor is he from Brooklyn, but he’s close to the North Shore. But I think anyone, or thing, named Brooklyn that needs help, deserves some attention, so this is Brooklyn the Boxer’s 15 minutes. While known as a Boxer, Brooklyn is a mutt, something else that should endear her to us Brooklynites. She was a rescue dog “unrescued” to the North Shore Animal League’s no-kill healing program. Let’s let them tell the story. “Brooklyn is a seven-year-old Boxer Mix who suffered from chronic ear infections for much of her life and was recently surrendered back into our care. Brooklyn was diagnosed with a specific type of bacteria widely known to cause excruciating pain in and around the ear, and if left untreated could lead to total hearing loss. Brooklyn’s pain and discomfort increased over time, causing her behavior to change for the worse. She became a very nervous and jumpy dog, who was yearning for some help.

    From the outside, it is a remarkably plain three-bedroom home in Tuscaloosa, Alabama. Nicknamed “The Peanut,” it is 15 years old, fronted with brick, and within shouting distance of the Tuscaloosa Nazarene Church. If that house of prayer isn’t of interest, there are at least another 19 within 4 miles. The Peanut is notable because of its owners—all 251 of them. Together, they pooled their funds this year to buy, and then rent, the $215,000 property, putting in as little as $100 apiece. The deal was facilitated by Arrived Homes, a startup that has raised more than $160 million in funding and debt financing, including two infusions from Jeff Bezos’ personal investment arm, Bezos Expeditions, and at least one from Uber CEO Dara Khosrowshahi and Salesforce billionaire Marc Benioff’s investment fund. Its goal is to give retail investors access to the lucrative rental market, mimicking the institutional investors that have spent tens of billions of dollars snapping up properties across the country—and which have massively disrupted the home-buying landscape in the process. Arrived Homes is still small, but judging by...
    Federal Reserve Chair Jerome Powell reacts as he testifies before a Senate Banking, Housing, and Urban Affairs Committee hearing on the "Semiannual Monetary Policy Report to the Congress", on Capitol Hill in Washington, D.C., U.S., June 22, 2022. Elizabeth Frantz | Reuters A Federal Reserve tracker of economic growth is pointing to an increased chance that the U.S. economy has entered a recession. Most Wall Street economists have been pointing to an increased chance of negative growth ahead, but figure it won't come until at least 2023. However, the Atlanta Fed's GDPNow measure, which tracks economic data in real time and adjusts continuously, sees second-quarter output contracting by 1%. Coupled with the first-quarter's decline of 1.6%, that would fit the technical definition of recession. "GDPNow has a strong track record, and the closer we get to July 28th's release [of the initial Q2 GDP estimate] the more accurate it becomes," wrote Nicholas Colas, co-founder of DataTrek Research. The tracker took a fairly precipitous fall from its last estimate of 0.3% growth on June 27. Data this week showing further weakness in...
    While it’s still a killer on your wallet, gas prices are starting to go down from record peaks earlier this month. In much of the D.C. area, the cost of gas has decreased by around 15 to 20 cents a gallon since June 13. According to data from AAA, Sunday saw average gas prices in the District at $5.04 a gallon. That’s down from $5.26, which set a record on June 13. More Local News More Consumer News Meanwhile in Maryland and Virginia, drivers are seeing a decrease of about 15 cents per gallon from the record prices set on June 14.   “The price of crude has begun to drop a little bit. And we’ve also seen that demand has gone down a bit, as well,” said Ragina Ali, Public and Government Affairs Manager with AAA Mid-Atlantic. Ali said broad market concern over economic growth around the world due to rising interest rates and inflation have been key factors with what has been happening with crude oil prices. In fact, a lower economic growth rate than expected...

    Michael Kopech was back on the mound one week after leaving his previous start for the Chicago White Sox after two-thirds of an inning with right knee discomfort. While Sunday’s outing didn’t go as he hoped, it was pretty astonishing considering what at first glance appeared to be a major setback on June 12. Kopech allowed four runs on seven hits in five innings in Sunday’s 4-3 loss to the Houston Astros in front of 37,709 at Minute Maid Park. “I’ve just got to make better pitches and keep us in the game and I didn’t do that,” Kopech said. Kopech said the knee, which led to the early exit against the Texas Rangers, was “good” after the game. “I’m going to feel, I think, a little bit different for a little bit,” he said. “But there’s no pain. I was able to compete with it.” Kopech struck out four and walked one in the 75-pitch performance. The Astros did most of their damage with the long ball as J.J. Matijevic hit a solo home run in the fourth and...
    Chicago Cubs left-hander Justin Steele instinctively reached his hand out in attempt to snare a ball up the middle. The ball bounced off it, giving San Diego Padres second baseman Jake Cronenworth an infield single two batters into Monday’s game. After retiring the next batter, Steele’s barehanded attempt prompted a mound visit from a Cubs trainer and manager David Ross The last thing the Cubs needed was another injury to a starting pitcher. Already pitching with a blister on his left middle finger, the ball’s impact bruised Steele’s index finger. When Steele got checked out mid-first inning, the skin was cut off his blister so it wouldn’t tear. But his index finger, which was swollen by the end of his start, was the bigger issue. “When I tried to catch that thing barehanded, I don’t know what I was thinking,” Steele said. “But I was able to manage the pain a little bit going through the start. After that inning, I went down to the cage and threw some balls into the net. I could feel it a little bit,...
    The sister of a woman who was murdered by the 'sleepwalking' killer has opened up about the 'trauma' of seeing her story retold in an 'unwanted' Hulu documentary, as she slammed the streaming service for 'exploiting' her family's pain. Brooke Preston, originally from Pennsylvania, was brutally stabbed and killed by her roommate Randy Herman Jr. in their West Palm Beach, Florida, home in 2017 when she was 21 years old.  During the trial, Herman - who had been friends with Brooke since they were little kids - claimed that he committed the crime while he was sleepwalking and that he had no recollection of the events - however, he was later convicted of first-degree murder, and was sentenced to life in prison. Hulu then released a documentary about the controversial case in December 2021, entitled Dead Asleep, in which they looked into the validity of his defense - despite Brooke's family begging them not to. Now, Brooke's sister, Jordan Preston, has blasted the network in a series of TikTok videos for releasing intimate footage from the moment her family found...

    The back injury to Chicago Cubs top prospect Brennen Davis is more serious than initially thought. Davis had back surgery in Los Angeles Thursday, sources told the Chicago Tribune. The 22-year-old outfielder went on the Triple-A Iowa injured list May 12 after he had been bothered by low back stiffness that traces back to spring training. The surgery revealed a cluster of blood vessels that caused back and leg pain. The vascular malformation pushed against a nerve, not dissimilar to sciatica. The blood vessels were cauterized during the surgery, and Davis has a follow-up appointment with the surgeon next week. It’s a best-case scenario given the situation for Davis, who does not have any disc or structural issues in his back. He is expected to make a full recovery. However, there is no timetable for when Davis will return to baseball activities. It is too soon to say how much of his season will be impacted by the surgery. The ailment initially manifested as a back injury, but the pain migrated to his legs. Davis received an epidural, which was...

    A 12-year-old boy scout woke up to a bear gnawing on his leg through his sleeping bag during a camping trip in upstate New York.  Henry Ayers, of Cooperstown, was camping with his group at the Tom Jones Shelter in Harriman State Park on May 5 when the black bear tore into his sleeping bag around 1 a.m.  'I felt a really quick, sharp sensation, a pain in my leg,' Henry told abc7.  'I look up, and it was a giant bear. I thought it was a nightmare. It was honestly crazy, I didn't think I was awake.' According to scoutmaster Diana Nicols, Henry yelled and kicked the bear, scaring the hungry animal off for a while. But the animal returned several times until around 4 a.m., when it left for good.  The scout suffered minor abrasions on his legs and a contusion, and received nine rabies shots since the incident. The boy admitted that he may have accidentally attracted the bear to the camp. 'I made a mistake,' Henry told abc7. 'I left some of my food in my bag...

    It’s no wonder Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has a reputation for being the curmudgeon of NATO. You would be, too, if your international claims-to-fame included jailing some 13,000 people for “insulting” your style of leadership, then saying Sweden isn’t fit for NATO membership because the country and its parliament is a “hatchery” for terrorist groups. The president has gone so far as to threaten to veto Sweden and Finland from joining the transatlantic alliance as a further counterweight to Russian belligerence in the region. “Neither of these countries have a clear, open attitude towards terrorist organizations,” Erdogan recently bellyached. “How can we trust them?” He is no Turkish delight. “Erdogan is a pain in the neck and he likes it that way,” a high-level NATO official, who is not authorized to speak on the record, told The Daily Beast. It’s hard to imagine just how embarrassing the Turkish president’s antics have been to NATO over the years. “Your voice comes out in a very loud tone,” Erdogan yowled in a televised WWE-like SmackDown with Israeli President Shimon Peres at...
    The Spanish government today approved a bill which grants paid 'menstrual leave' for women who suffer from severe period pain, in what would be a first in Europe. The bill allows workers experiencing period pain to an unlimited amount of time off, with the state social security system - not employers - picking up the tab for the medical leave. As with paid leave for other health reasons, a doctor must approve the temporary medical incapacity. The proposed legislation must still be approved by parliament, with a vote not expected for months. But if the bill is passed, Spain will become the first Western country to give women 'menstrual leave'. Menstrual leave is currently offered only in a small number of countries across the globe, among them South Korea, Japan, Zambia and Indonesia - and none in Europe. Under the reform package passed by Spain's cabinet, schools will be required to provide sanitary products to girls and there will also be changes to the country's abortion laws.
    Extraordinary video has emerged of recaptured fugitive Casey White, 38, repeatedly shocking himself with a stun gun, appearing all but oblivious to its impact. The footage, obtained by DailyMail.com, was filmed several years ago and shows White, wearing a wedding band, toying with the taser at a pawn store. Wearing jeans, a sleeveless white T-shirt and baseball cap White appears fixated on the stun gun which he charges and re-charges in his hand. After tentatively testing the voltage on the palm of his hand, White gradually escalates the potential pain. Again and again, Casey deploys the taser, holding it in his right hand and shooting it at his left arm. The electricity current crackles as he sits on the floor anticipating the shock.  The bolts can be seen, clearly delivering a shock stinging enough to cause White to jump but he shakes off any pain and numbness and simply continues.

    President Joe Biden today paid his respects to the families of the one million Americans who died from Covid-19, telling grieving relatives that he knows 'the pain of that black hole in your heart'. Biden said he acknowledged the 'unrelenting' pain of those who have lost loved ones during the pandemic, as the president marked the devastating milestone of one million deaths in the US. He called on residents to 'remain vigilant against this pandemic' and said it was 'critical' for Congress to fund resources like testing, vaccines and treatments.  The 1 million mark, announced on Wednesday, is a stark reminder of the staggering grief and loss caused by the pandemic even as the threat posed by the virus wanes in the minds of many people. It represents about one death for every 327 Americans, or more than the entire population of San Francisco or Seattle.  By the time the World Health Organization (WHO) declared COVID-19 a global pandemic on March 11, 2020, the virus had claimed 36 lives in the United States.  In the months that followed, the deadly...

    Vladimir Putin was accused of trying to ‘exterminate the Ukrainians’ last night after wiping out food stocks in a key city sheltering thousands. Luhansk governor Serhiy Haidai said Russian forces were deliberately attempting to strangle the flow of supplies. Missiles have rained down on the city of Sievierodonetsk for days, destroying all food depots, markets and shops as the Kremlin aims to capture the entire region. The city’s 100,000 population has now dwindled to about 17,000 and they face an uncertain future without urgent humanitarian aid. Those left behind, unable or unwilling to flee, have so little left they have resorted to cooking in the street, not knowing when the next bombardment will come. Luhansk, in eastern Ukraine, is one of the first destinations for emergency food boxes sent by the Mail Force charity. In a joint mission with the Ukrainian embassy in London, the Mail Force consignment is making its way through the war-torn country to reach desperately hungry families. Those left behind, unable or unwilling to flee, have so little left they have resorted to cooking in the...

    A film student has learned to walk and talk again after surviving a horrific fireball car crash that left him in a coma for two months. Keegan Tindall, 21, was involved in a collision in August 2020, leaving him with third degree burns over half of his body. Keegan, from New Jersey, was placed in an induced coma and awoke more than two months later to his new appearance. He recalls being taken to a room called the 'tank room' where doctors sprayed him down before scraping his burns whilst he lay on a metal sheet, describing it as the 'worst pain ever'.    Keegan, who was forced to write messages on a white board after finding he could not speak after the accident, was in rehabilitation for six months as he had to re-learn how to walk and talk.

    President Joe Biden on Tuesday seemed to accuse Vladimir Putin of committing 'genocide' in the Ukraine afer his administration officials have been careful not to use that word. 'Your family budget, your ability to fill up your tank - none of it should hinge on whether a dictator declares war and commits genocide a half a world away,' Biden said during a speech in Iowa on combatting high inflation, which he blamed on Putin's invasion of the Ukraine. On April 4, shortly after pictures of atrocities appeared in Bucha, Ukraine, Biden refused to call it a genocide, instead using the term 'war crimes' and saying Putin should be put on trial. 'He is a war criminal,' Biden said at the time. 'But we have to gather the information. We have to continue to provide Ukraine with the weapons they need to continue to fight and we have to get all the detail so this could be – actual have a war crimes trial. This guy is brutal and what's happening in Bucha is outrageous and everyone's seen it.'  Ukraine President Volodymyr...

    BOOK OF THE WEEK A LIFE OF PICASSO – Volume IV: THE MINOTAUR YEARS, 1933-1943  by John Richardson (Cape £35, 368pp) Pablo Picasso didn’t visit the northern Spanish town of Guernica to inspect the carnage; in fact, he hardly visited his native country of Spain throughout the whole ten-year period covered in this fourth volume of John Richardson’s magisterial and superbly illustrated biography.  But as an expat in Paris, from the safety of his studio in the Rue des Grands Augustins and revolted by news of the violence initiated by General Franco, Picasso ‘caught’, in photo-like sepia colours, on a vast seven-metre-wide canvas, the unspeakable horror of the 1937 flattening of Guernica in a raid by the Germans, a highly effective technical experiment in the art of annihilation, in which 1,500 civilians were killed, many of them women and children. Pictured: Picasso in 1937 with ‘primary’ mistress Dora Maar. John Richardson's fourth volume of Picasso follows the artist as an expat in Paris Taking only 25 frenzied days to paint, Picasso’s Guernica was a terrifyingly prophetic work, with its screaming mothers, dead children,...
    Serena Williams has opened up about how she saved her own life after giving birth to her daughter Olympia, saying she had to push for the CAT scan that led to the discovery of the blood clot in her lungs.  The tennis legend welcomed her daughter—whose full name is Alexis Olympia Ohanian Jr.—via an emergency C-section on September 1, 2017. She developed a pulmonary embolism 24 hours after her baby’s arrival and underwent back-to-back surgeries. Williams, 40, detailed her traumatic birth experience in an essay for Elle, which was adapted from 'Arrival Stories: Women Share Their Experiences of Becoming Mothers,' an anthology collected by Amy Schumer and Christy Turlington Burns.  'In the U.S., Black women are nearly three times more likely to die during or after childbirth than their white counterparts. Many of these deaths are considered by experts to be preventable,' she wrote.  'Being heard and appropriately treated was the difference between life or death for me; I know those statistics would be different if the medical establishment listened to every Black woman’s experience.' Serena Williams, 40, detailed her traumatic birth experience in an...
    Elliot Page has opened up about his milestone appearance at this year's Oscars, describing his 'joy' at being able to wear a tuxedo to the event - which marked his first Academy Awards since he came out as transgender in December 2020.  The 35-year-old Umbrella Academy star put on a dapper display on the red carpet at this year's glittering awards ceremony, donning a classic black tuxedo by Gucci, before taking to the stage to mark the 15th anniversary of his breakout movie Juno alongside co-stars Jennifer Garner and JK Simmons.  But beyond marking the milestone of the movie that turned him into a Hollywood heavyweight, Page says his appearance at the Oscars also served as a significant personal step - describing it as a 'special, wonderful, joyful moment' during an Instagram Live interview to mark the start of the Trans Week of Visibility and Action on Monday.   'I feel the best I've ever felt like, like, I feel the way that I really actually never thought was possible,' Page said of his decision to come out as transgender, adding: 'Just...

    THERE are many reasons why your arms might hurt. Often it isn't anything to be too worried about, but sometimes it is a red flag you need medical help immediately. 1There are all sorts of reasons why you might have arm pain - some of which would require helpCredit: Getty Dr Sarah Jarvis, GP and Clinical Director of Patient Access, told the Sun Online: "There are numerous causes of arm pain. "Sometimes it’s due to nerve problems – a pinched nerve in the neck, or pressure on one of the nerves in the arm. "Sometimes it’s due to inflammation of the tough tendon sheath connecting muscles to bone – for instance, at the elbow in so-called tennis elbow or golfer’s elbow.

    The idea of an armband that can mimic pain in the metaverse may sound like a concept from the latest series of Black Mirror. But thanks to a Japanese start-up, the creepy device has become a reality. H2L, a Sony-backed company based in Tokyo, has developed an armband that uses electrical stimulation to deliver physical pain. 'Feeling pain enables us to turn the metaverse world into a real [world], with increased feelings of presence and immersion,' Emi Tamaki, chief executive and co-founder of H2L told the Financial Times. The 'metaverse' is a set of virtual spaces where you can game, work and communicate with other people who aren't in the same physical space as you.  In the future, the metaverse will be accessible with virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR) headsets and smart glasses, and could be used for work, education, gaming and even music events.      H2L's armband, called UnlimitedHand, features muscle motion sensors that recognise your hand gestures and position, enabling your avatar in the metaverse to accurately copy your movements. It also uses electrical stimulation to manipulate the...

    Prices at the pump are trickling down slowly even as prices for a barrel of crude oil have dipped far faster, and Democrats are laying blame on fuel companies.  White House press secretary Jen Psaki noted at the top of her daily briefing that crude oil prices have sank to $94 per barrel - down from a peak of over $130 last week.  'When oil prices were at this level one month ago, the average cost of a gallon of gasoline was $3.49, yet now the average cost of a gallon of gasoline is $4.32,' she said. 'When it comes to oil and gas prices, many accept that gas prices rise quickly and fall slowly, the so-called rocket and feathers phenomenon.'   'If gas retailers' costs are going down, they need to immediately pass those savings on to consumers,' she said.  Biden used his bully pulpit to express a similar sentiment this morning: 'Oil prices are decreasing, gas prices should too,' he wrote on Twitter. 'Oil and gas companies shouldn't pad their profits at the expense of hardworking Americans.' The average...
    CHANHASSEN, Minn. (WCCO) — A Ukrainian ballet teacher has been making a name for herself in the Twin Cities for the last two decades. Julia Levina has been the artistic director La Danse Fatale pre-professional ballet company, part of the Dance Arts Centre studio in Chanhassen, for the last two decades. Levina trains, choreographs and mentors young dancers in middle school and high school. Each year her ballet company puts on an annual showcase performance at Eden Prairie High School Performing Arts Center. Since 2007, Levina has incorporated a crowd-pleasing piece titled, “Ukrainian,” as an homage to her home country. This year, this tribute dance takes on a whole new meaning and purpose.

    WHEN Jude Mellon-Jameson started screaming of pain in the night, his parents assumed it was because he had been bitten by a tick. It was the summer of 2021, and the insects are abundant in woods, fields and some parks across the UK. 2Jude Mellon-Jameson started screaming with pain in the night, but his parents never imagined it would be due to cancerCredit: MEN Media 2Three-year-old Jude is seven months into his treatmentCredit: MEN Media Lucy and Arron, from Sheffield, never in a million years thought their little boy would have cancer.  But on the eve of his third birthday, they were told Jude had neuroblastoma - a cancer that affects around 100 children a year in the UK, according to the NHS. Neuroblastoma most commonly occurs in one of the adrenal glands situated above the kidneys, or in the nerve tissue that runs alongside the spinal cord in the neck, chest, tummy or pelvis. At the point of diagnosis, Jude was given just a 50 per cent chance of long-term survival. Lucy, 33, said she had barely noticed any symptoms in her...
    Gas prices rose by an average of 15.8 cents a gallon on Friday across the U.S. and were up another 8 cents on Saturday - as the cost at the pump increased 33 cents over the last week.  It was the second highest spike in gasoline prices ever recorded and beaten only by the 18.1-cent spike when Hurricane Katrina tore through Gulf in August 2005. This time, Russia's war in Ukraine is having a dramatic impact on the cost of crude oil which sits at $114 a barrel. This, coupled with rising inflation at home of 7.5 percent, are the main culprits why drivers are spending more than $100 to fill up on full tank of regular unleaded gas in nearly a third of the country.  Gas prices have risen by 37 cents since Russia invaded its neighbor.  There are now eleven states - California, Hawaii, Nevada, Oregon, Washington, Alaska, Illinois, Arizona, New York, Connecticut and Pennsylvania - where the average price is already over $4 a gallon. Another six states have average gas prices hovering near $4 a gallon.  Prices for...
