What Is That Sharp, Stabbing Sensation You Sometimes Feel In Your Chest?

If you have ever experienced a sharp and sudden pain in the chest, it may have been a condition called precordial catch syndrome (PCS). The good news is that unlike a heart attack, it is not harmful or even life-threatening. Unlike a heart attack, the pain does not radiate or “spread” to other areas of the body. And, again dissimilar from a heart attack, PCS won’t cause other symptoms – such as drenching or vomiting, for example. Instead, the pain is localized to an area to the front or side of the chest usually no bigger than one to two fingertips wide. Hence the name “precordial”, meaning “in front of the heart”.  Breathing can make the pain more intense and some people find shallow breaths can help …

Breast cancer survivors blown away by miracle-working tattoo artist.

via 60 Second Docs/Facebook Women who’ve had breast cancer and a mastectomy just want to feel whole after their long journey back to health. Unfortunately, many women lose their nipples during their mastectomy surgeries depending on how their cancer spread and doctor’s discretion. This leaves women with the choice of having no nipple, their skin shaped into a projection that resembles a nipple, or having an areola grafted from skin on other parts of their body. Tattoo artist Vinnie Myers of Finksburg, Maryland is using his amazing skills to help breast cancer survivors feel whole again by giving them areola tattoos. “The women want to look like they did before their mastectomies,” Myers says in the video. Myers perfectly mixes …

Nerve Cells In People With Autism Develop Faster And Grow Larger, Study Finds

In a “very exciting finding”, researchers at California’s Salk Institute have discovered a difference between the way nerve cells develop in people who have autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and those who don’t. The researchers hope their study will contribute to a better understanding of why ASD develops, helping to create better diagnostic techniques and treatments.   ASD is a disability that impacts how people communicate and interpret the feelings and behaviors of others, as well as how they experience the world around them. Most commonly diagnosed in children, particularly boys, it impacts one in every 59 kids in the US. There is currently no cure and the exact cause or causes of the condition are still unclear – both genetics and hyperconnectivity within the …

Kate Middleton’s Brother Writes About His Intense Struggle With Depression

Kate Middleton’s younger brother, James Middleton, opened up about his struggle with clinical depression in a moving essay for the Middleton, who said he was speaking out because he supports his royal relatives’ campaign to remove the stigma from mental illness, described his condition as “a cancer of the mind” that made him feel like a “complete failure.” He added: “It’s not a feeling but an absence of feelings. You exist without purpose or direction. I couldn’t feel joy, excitement or anticipation – only heart-thudding anxiety propelled me out of bed in the morning. I didn’t actually contemplate suicide — but I didn’t want to live in the state of mind I was in either.”  Matthias Nareyek via Getty Images James …

Children left in limbo after school shuts

‘Everything has been snatched away from me’ Thirteen of the pupils live in the Perth and Kinross Council area, and the authority has offered to educate them at the mothballed Forteviot Primary School. Alternative options include home schooling or to make a placing request at another independent school. But parents have claimed the Forteviot building is unsuitable, and a poor substitute for the care their children received at Butterstone.

Bernie Sanders’ Supporters Call On Him To Run For President Again

BROOKLYN, N.Y. ― Supporters of Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) held over 400 house parties in all 50 states and Puerto Rico on Saturday afternoon calling on Sanders to run for president again in 2020. But Saturday’s show of force, arranged by Organizing for Bernie ― an upstart group founded by Sanders campaign alumni and grassroots activists ― demonstrated one of the senator’s biggest advantages if he decides to return to the ring: a network of supporters already familiar with his message and skilled in do-it-yourself internet organizing. “We need to convince Bernie Sanders to run. He isn’t in this race yet,” Brezler said. Although Sanders and his campaign team were not directly involved in Saturday’s events, the house parties were …

GOPer: With a wildly flailing president, it’s up to Congress to end the shutdown

(CNN)With this government shutdown now the longest in American history, it’s time to bring it to an end. Of course, this is Washington, and Trump and his administration have other ideas. He and members of his team have toyed with the idea of declaring a national emergency, though Trump has said he is not quite ready to do so. Trump has also been presented with proposals to redirect military construction or disaster emergency funds to build a wall — without congressional authorization. If either of these two options were invoked, a legal challenge would be filed immediately, further inflaming the ongoing crisis in political leadership. Such extreme proposals would trample Congress’ Article I power of the purse authority, set a …

A salesman tried to dupe Twain. His response? A turn-of-the-century burn of the century.

via The Library of Congress/Wikimedia Commons Prostitution may be the “world’s oldest profession,” but quackery can’t be too far behind. In the 19th century, American medical doctors began to take a scientific approach to practicing medicine, but it didn’t stop the growing number of con artists pushing fake medical cures, elixirs, tonics, and serums across the countryside. These traveling sales people would set up tents and make fire-and-brimstone speeches touting the unbelievable benefits of their products that were said to cure everything from tuberculosis to baldness. These displays were often accompanied by confidence tricks and fake testimonials. via Carol M. Highsmith/Wikimedia commons By the time the people who bought the medicine realized it was fake, the con artists were off …

Images of health centres waste ‘backlog’

‘Waste backed up’ NHS National Services Scotland also said “appropriate contingency measures” were in place to process clinical waste after HES lost its service contract. However, one former HES worker, who asked not be named, said: “The firms who have taken over the collections are working flat out, but there is weeks and weeks of waste backed up.” The pictures of the three Lanarkshire sites, reportedly taken this week, appeared on a Facebook page set up by those who said they were concerned about the HES situation. The images have since been removed.
