I used to have fun, in my old life. Or in my young life, is probably the more accurate way of describing it. Pre-drinking in someone’s house on an empty stomach because we wanted to get drunk faster or because our dresses were skin tight and we were afraid we would look bloated if we ate carbs. (Carbs were the devil in the 2000s. I believe sugar has taken its place now, Instagram is flooded with photos of misshapen ‘snickers bars’ made from chickpeas and date syrup.) And then, in college, half broken nights with pupils bleeding black, dancing and sweating and making best friends with strangers in the club toilets, the music rising inside you.Going home to that damp house in Fairview and talking and talking and talking until the sun is bleeding through the wafer-thin curtains and you still haven’t run out of words, they are loose at the tip of your tongue, desperate to be spoken, because you love these people more than you have ever loved anyone and they must … [Read more...] about ‘I used to have fun, in my old life’

Last Updated Aug 27, 2019 7:09 PM EDT Washington — A patient at a Veterans Affairs hospital in West Virginia died after being given a drug he did not need. His death has been ruled a homicide. The VA Inspector General and Justice Department are investigating and there are allegations that other patients may have died the same way.On April 6, 2018, 82-year-old Vietnam veteran Felix McDermott was admitted to the Louis A. Johnson VA Medical Center in Clarksburg, West Virginia, with pneumonia. He was improving when suddenly, three days later, he was dead.According to a claim filed with the Department of Veterans Affairs by his family, no one at the hospital explained what happened to McDermott. But an autopsy performed months later came to a shocking conclusion. McDermott, who "had never been diagnosed with diabetes," was "injected with a fatal dose of insulin." His death was ruled a homicide.Attorney Tony O'Dell said nine of 10 other patients met the same fate."They all seemed to … [Read more...] about Feds investigating additional deaths at VA hospital
Virtually every summer there are drownings in private community swimming pools across the province, and only last week, at the Aldeas de Aguamarina urbanisation in Cabo Roig, 3 year old Avery Greene tragically lost his young life in one such community. The shameful reality is that, of the 7,000 private swimming pools in urbanisations across the Alicante region, only 140 employ the services of a lifeguard. So have we really become such an uncaring society where financial considerations are put above those of a young life? It is a National Outrage that the number of attended pools equates to just one in fifty in this part of Spain, but even ther, where such a provision is made, hundreds of holidaymakers largely ignore community rules in respect of opening times, as is evidenced by many of the drownings occuring ‘out of hours’ when the pools are mostly unattended by suitably trained staff. However, unless the situation changes and Community Presidents and their owners start … [Read more...] about What is the cost of a young life?
Samuel Stebbins 24/7 Wall Street Published 7:00 AM EDT Aug 11, 2019 Americans are far less likely to pick up and move now than they have been in decades. Just 32.4 million Americans moved to a new home in 2018, the fewest since at least 1999, when over 42 million Americans moved. Young people, who are less likely to be tethered by a family or mortgage, are not an exception to this trend. Mobility among young adults between the ages of 25 and 35 recently hit its lowest level in 50 years. Still, the majority of Americans who have moved in 2017 are under the age of 30. And among this relatively mobile age demographic, some areas are far more popular than others. Professional snuggler?
