Equipment failure at 2nd fertility clinic may
have damaged hundreds of embryos

NEW YORK -- In what appears to be a stunning and heartbreaking coincidence, another fertility clinic said Monday its equipment temporarily failed, possibly damaging hundreds of eggs and embryos. The incident at Pacific Fertility Center in San Francisco happened on the same day as a fertility clinic at Beachwood, Ohio-based University Hospitals Ahuja Medical Center. The level of liquid nitrogen in a cryo-storage tank used to preserve eggs and embryos dropped, raising the temperature in the tank and putting the eggs and embryos at risk.

Hmmmmmm, one is a failure. Two on the same day smells like sabotage. I would think that any alarming would have to have been disabled as well.

I´ve worked in labs. These should have had alarms that not only sounded locally but also called researchers to ensure there was an immediate response. Further LN2? Why weren´t these in actual freezers? These little lives aren´t damaged, they´re dead.

For those women who had eggs frozen before undergoing radiation or chemo which could make them infertile "heartbreaking" might apply. When it comes to frozen embryos, living in limbo, subject to selective abortions once implanted, pawns in divorce battles, and potential subjects of medical experimentation well that´s a different story, but heartbreaking on an entirely different level.

This is so much BS. Coincidence my patootie! Besides, these cryogenic systems do not work that simplistically. "Oops! Somehow the levels of liquid nitrogen just fell...reasons unknown!- Oh, well!" Look to the money factor. I´ll bet this outfit was under tremendous financial strain - I smell an insurance fraud case. Like the managers burning down the factory - along with all the financial records, "Boo-Hoo!"

I bet the damage was limited to ´inventory´ that was no longer generating income.

Here in Cleveland I saw an interview with a couple that lost 3 embryos. It makes sense that those 3 embryos should have been kept in separate freezers to guard against this kind of failure. Ever heard of not putting all your eggs in one basket? Literally!

#4, exactly right.

In the USA, human beings at the dawn of our lifespan are dealt with under property law, not family law. Our youngest sons and daughters --- humans in embryo --- are treated as chattel, not children.

They´re made and frozen like laboraory specimens. They are subjected to minute scrutiny, not for their own individual benefit but for the preference of the purchaser. The less fortunate ones are discarded without a qualm. They are at risk of abortion once implanted, if they don´t get the premium rating from "product quality control". They get batted back and forth like shuttlecocks in divorce-related disputes, dickered over like dd hard-to-dispose of "stuff," like cans of paint in the back of the garage.

AND they may end up being some grad student´s Science Project. Possibly totally deformed into inter-species chimeras as if they were the spawn of animals.

Then finally, to the biomedical waste landfill, with no "Rest in Peace" and no "Amen".

Tell me what that has to do with human dignity.

Washington -A former Playboy model who allegedly had a nine-month affair with President Donald Trump is suing the company that kept her original account from publication, The New York Times reported Tuesday. The Times said Karen McDougal is suing to be released from an agreement mandating her silence. The report would make McDougal the latest woman to take legal action over an agreement restricting her from speaking out about an alleged relationship with the President prior to his time in government. The White House has said Trump denies the affair. Shortly before the presidential election, the Wall Street Journal published a story saying

It may be too early to say exactly what happened at Great Mills High School in Maryland, where a gunman this morning wounded two students. It’s not too soon, though, to wonder whether this will emerge as a vindication of the National Rifle Association’s Wayne LaPierre, who coined the formulation that “the only thing that stops a bad guy with a gun, is a good guy with a gun.” The early report, which we read in USA Today, is that the attacking student who opened fire at the high school in southern Maryland injured two students shortly before classes were

It’s not just President Trump who thinks “fake news” is a problem. Even the Washington Post’s Bob Woodward is warning that some reporters are becoming “emotionally unhinged” covering President Trump and crossing over into a “tone of ridicule.” Science magazine, the peer-reviewed journal whose headlines usually run to “Random heteropolymers preserve protein function in foreign environments” or “Organometallic and radical intermediates reveal mechanism of dipthamide biosynthesis,” devoted a recent article to “The science of fake news.” It observed that “general trust in the mass media collapsed to historic lows in 2016.” The Science article was by David

A few months back, Lorena Jofre was planning to buy a condominium in Miami-Dade County to finally move into her own place with her 7-year-old daughter. Jofre, who has lived much of her life in uncertainty, also planned to exchange her old car for a new one, thanks to a better paying job. She even hoped to return to college to become a teacher or a social worker. But her plans have since drastically changed. Like many immigrants in South Florida and other parts of the country, Jofre is now taking steps to become untraceable after President Donald Trump ordered stepped up enforcement

On the morning of Wednesday, February 28, Hope Hicks arrived at the White House just after 8 a.m. Within a week, it would be snowing in Washington, D.C., but she was dressed for spring in a bouquet of purple, yellow, and blue, as if willing the end of winter with her miniskirt. She held on to her iPhone in the West Wing, in violation of a rule that normally diverted it to a locker secured by a shiny silver key, then retreated to her office, a first-floor broom closet that in the past had been assigned to presidential secretaries.

For months, President Trump’s legal advisers implored him to avoid so much as mentioning the name of Robert S. Mueller III, the special counsel, in his tweets, and to do nothing to provoke him or suggest his investigation is not proper. Ignoring that advice over the weekend was the decision of a president who ultimately trusts only his own instincts, and now believes he has settled into the job enough to rely on them rather than the people who advise him. A dozen people close to Mr. Trump or the White House, including current and former aides and longtime friends, described him

Joe Biden and John Kerry have been pillars of the Washington establishment for more than 30 years. Biden is one of the most popular politicians in our nation’s capital. His demeanor, sense of humor, and even his friendly gaffes have allowed him to form close relationships with both Democrats and Republicans. His public image is built around his “Lunch Bucket Joe” persona. As he reminds the American people on regular occasions, he has little wealth to show for his career, despite having reached the vice presidency. One of his closest political allies in Washington is former senator and former Secretary of State

Judge Nap: Firing of McCabe

Fox News senior judicial analyst Andrew Napolitano explained Monday why he believes the firing of FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe could be viewed as "obstruction of justice." (Snip) Napolitano said he sees the firing as "reckless" and "vindictive" because McCabe is "more likely than not to be a witness" against Sessions´ boss, President Trump. "Firing him in that environment could very well be interpreted as an effort to diminish his effectiveness as a witness. What´s that called? Obstruction of justice," said Napolitano, adding he´s unsure if Special Counsel Robert Mueller will pursue such a case. Napolitano said on "America´s Newsroom"

Officials in a Minneapolis school district are trying to figure out why black students are suspended three times more often than their white peers, according to a Sunday report. Black students have a 338 percent higher chance than white students to be suspended at Justice Page Middle School in Minneapolis, Minn., according to The New York Times. Black students make up 41 percent of the Minneapolis school district’s student body, but 76 percent of its suspensions. The black students constantly tell the principal, “The teacher only sees me,” Justice Page Principal Erin Rathke said. She responds, “Yes, that’s probably true.”

SAN FRANCISCO — A woman in Tempe, Ariz., died after being hit by a self-driving car operated by Uber, in what appears to be the first known death of a pedestrian struck by an autonomous vehicle on public roads. The Uber vehicle was in autonomous mode with a human safety driver at the wheel when it struck the woman, who was crossing the street outside of a crosswalk, the Tempe police said in a statement. The episode occurred overnight, although the authorities did not specify whether it was late Sunday or early Monday. The woman was not publicly identified. An

James Kallstrom is no joke. With nearly thirty years in the FBI, several of them as the Assistant Director, Kallstrom knows how the agency functions far more than most. So when he says there was a plot to protect Hillary Clinton from prosecution and to illegally influence the 2016 Election people should pay attention. Kallstrom goes on to call the entirety of the FBI investigation against Donald Trump completely phony. Maria Bartiromo’s own take appears very much to compliment Mr. Kallstrom’s assertions. The Deep State shenanigans run very deep and in 2016 are linked to the Obama White House. Barack Obama

A retired United States Army lieutenant colonel and Fox News contributor quit Tuesday and denounced the network and President Donald Trump in an email to colleagues. "Fox has degenerated from providing a legitimate and much-needed outlet for conservative voices to a mere propaganda machine for a destructive and ethically ruinous administration," wrote Ralph Peters, a Fox News "strategic analyst." "Over my decade with Fox, I long was proud of the association. Now I am ashamed," he wrote.

Police in Glendale, Wis., are currently seeking the public’s help in identifying an irate McDonald’s customer who assaulted a teenage employee after receiving the wrong breakfast order. The suspect and a friend reportedly pulled up to the drive-thru of the McDonald’s just before 11 a.m. on March 18, where they placed an order for a breakfast sandwich with bacon, according to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. But upon receiving a breakfast sandwich with sausage instead, the woman became angry. “What the [expletive] is this? I didn´t order no sausage biscuit,” said the woman, who then threw the food back at the
