    Pulse Nightclub massacre survivor, Brandon Wolf, shared his thoughts with MSNBC’s Joy Reid on Monday, reacting to the mass shooting in Colorado Springs over the weekend that targeted an LGBTQ nightclub – leaving five dead and dozens injured. Wolf, the press secretary of Equality Florida, began by pointing to the recent rhetoric on the right, saying “we warned them that inevitably this would result in violence.” “Happening for the last few years, right-wing grifters, including politicians like Ron DeSantis and Greg Abbott, they’ve been spewing this vile, hateful rhetoric about LGBTQ people. They’ve been trafficking in some of the oldest, darkest tropes against our community,” Wolf said, referencing the governs of Florida and Texas – respectively. “They’ve been accusing us of posing a threat to children simply because we exist on planet Earth. And we warned them that inevitably this would result in violence, but they just couldn’t help themselves. They couldn’t help themselves from crafting one more fundraising email or hitting send on one more grotesque tweet. They couldn’t help themselves,” Wolf continued, adding: As the temperature around the...
    Donald Trump has stepped up his attacks on Republicans and potential 2024 presidential election rivals by saying Virginia Governor Glenn Youngkin couldn't have won without his support. The former president wrote on Friday morning that 'Young Kin' is a name that 'sounds Chinese' and that he helped him get the 'MAGA vote' in his victory over Democrat Terry McAuliffe in November 2021. It comes after Trump laid into Ron DeSantis by calling him 'average' and claimed that he sent in the FBI to 'stop ballot theft' when he won the Florida Governor race in 2018.   'Young Kin (now that’s an interesting take. Sounds Chinese, doesn’t it?) in Virginia couldn’t have won without me,' he posted on Truth Social.  'I Endorsed him, did a very big Trump Rally for him telephonically, got MAGA to Vote for him - or he couldn’t have come close to winning. But he knows that, and admits it. Besides, having a hard time with the Dems in Virginia - But he’ll get it done!' Trump, 76, endorsed Youngkin and helped him in a telephone rally, but he...

Non-traumatic brain injuries that occur after strokes, infections, or a lack of oxygen can also cause aphasia.   'My own immune system attacked my brain because it misidentified it as invading germs. The danger was always inside me, lurking just under my scalp,' she wrote. 'I became severely ill one day after I stood up at the end of my workday and realized I had forgotten how to walk.'

    The Pentagon has spent more than $1 billion on a program meant to help survivors of domestic abuse since 2015. But advocates and survivors told CBS News that they couldn't get help.  "I've never had anyone report to me that they received any type of help with moving, any type of help with food assistance, any type of help with just getting a protection order," said Lisa Colella, who runs the private nonprofit Healing Household 6, which aims to support veterans' caregivers and survivors of domestic violence. "I don't think the program is useful at all."  Lisa Colella runs Healing Household 6, which aims to support veterans' caregivers.  That military program, called the Family Advocacy Program, is one of the resources commanders are required to tell victims about following the reported allegations of abuse, according to Defense Department policy.  The military also offers domestic violence survivors a benefit called transitional compensation — a stipend intended to help survivors pay for basic living expenses after they leave an abusive home.  Colella, who quit her restaurant job to become an advocate...
    BERKELEY (KPIX) — Most of us have heard the old adage that a picture tells the story of a thousand words. Paulo Orozco would agree, because he uses his camera as a tool to tell the stories of others in need. Orozco’s photos are more than just a quick snap. Each is a carefully planned expression of his subjects most vulnerable selves. And each session’s location, lighting and even clothing are all chosen by Orozco, thoughtfully designed and curated to help his subject’s heal from trauma. “I talk to people for a really long time — for a good 2-3 days, a week — until I really get a grasp of who they are,” explained Orozco of his process. “[I then ask them] ‘What is the problem or insecurity? Let’s bring it out subtly; not entirely.’ But we will get to it, you know?” Those insecurities that we all have are the beauty Orozco sees through his lens. It’s a view the 19-year-old photographer is personally familiar with. When KPIX first met Orozco back in 2019, he was a high...

The couple exclusively told The Sun: “I was told I could not change my daughter’s nappy without gloves on, because the chemo can come out in her urine and waste. “If I can’t have that diluted version touch me, how can an eight-week-old baby have it pumped into her body through her veins, put into her organs? It is absolutely crazy.” Safiyya adds: “Babies cannot eat adult food but they are being given adult chemotherapy. It is so...

    An Oklahoma woman helped evacuate 10 girls from Afghanistan who were part of an all-female robotics team. Allyson Reneau, who is the mother of 11 children and sits on the board of the space exploration group Explore Mars, told CNN’s “New Day” Friday that she met the Afghan girls at a conference in Washington in 2019. “We chose to fly these girls over from Afghanistan to be part of our conference and to help them pursue their dreams to be in the engineering and space field,” Reneau told CNN host Brianna Keilar, adding that she kept in touch with the girls after the conference. About two weeks ago, Reneau said, she “woke up with an overwhelming feeling that something was wrong” that drove her “to take some action” to somehow get the girls out of Afghanistan. The Taliban’s restoration of Sharia law in the country threatens the rights of all, especially women. During the Taliban’s previous rule of Afghanistan, women couldn’t go out in public without a male escort and girls held no right to an education. (RELATED: ‘Sharia Law...

    MONTHS after a bald, tall, slender figure appeared at the top of the stairs, the Lewis household was “extremely concerned” – after "two physical attacks" it was finally time to seek outside help. It followed an “unexplainable 15-centimetre scratch” appearing on the left butt cheek of Leah, 21, from Burton-upon-Trent, Derbyshire, shortly after she told the spirit to leave her family alone.  She claims the “marking” happened shortly after her mother Colette, 46, was “physically pinned to her bed” by a spirit and “was unable to move or speak” for two minutes.  After recounting the tale in June, Leah said aloud: “Anything not of light or love is not welcome within the house.” Leah believes the spirit, who was described as “angry and frustrated”, fought back and left a bruise on her bum that remains to this day. The retail worker told The Sun: “My mum had an experience where she was in bed and suddenly she heard heavy breathing in her ear. “She tried to shout for me but she couldn’t move and couldn’t speak and she thinks that...
    FIRST the drugs keeping me alive stopped working and my cancer started to grow. An inoperable tumour wrapped around my bile duct meant my liver started to fail. 8Deborah managed a fun few days out with her children before she was rushed to hospitalCredit: Deborah James 8The mum of two was diagnosed with sepsis after feeling unwellCredit: Instagram A few weeks ago, for the first time since I was diagnosed with stage 4 bowel cancer I really believed I was facing the beginning of the end. I questioned if this was it? I was lucky enough to be strong enough to have my 13th operation, to stent my liver - and stop it failing. That meant I could have chemotherapy again, to try and shrink my cancer. Now, I am writing this from my hospital again, having had a terrifying few days battling sepsis. After finishing chemo, I managed to muster enough energy to enjoy a few days out at Wimbledon, the circus and on Monday I was dancing in the rain at the Hampton Court flower show. On Tuesday...

    A MUM has said her new born baby was "left to die" after being born at 21 weeks because midwives couldn’t help. Heartbroken Bethany Lamming gave birth to "perfect" baby Jensen but despite being able to breath for himself and cry but she was told nothing could be done to save him. 7Bethany Lamming with partner Marcus Ford and baby Jensen in hospitalCredit: Real Life News Agency 7A scan showing JensenCredit: Real Life News Agency Hull University Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust said it adheres to national guidance issued by the British Association of Perinatal Medicine which advises it is "not appropriate" to attempt to resuscitate babies born before 22 weeks.
