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

CBS News, by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:Toledo, 3/13/2018 6:25:45 AM

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!"

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.

NY Daily News stealth-edits
column that told Hispanic

Daily Caller News Foundation, by Joe Simonson    Original Article

The New York Daily News has stealth-edited a column originally telling Hispanic conservative commentator Kimberly Guilfoyle that “she’d be better off picking grapes” than dating Donald Trump Jr. That line has now been changed to “she’d probably have better odds picking lotto numbers,” without any note from an editor. An Internet Archive page shows the change as well. Linda Stasi, the author behind the piece titled “Fox should fire reporter Kimberly Guilfoyle, who can’t possibly stay neutral while dating a Trump kid,” also mistakenly refers to Guilfoyle as a reporter rather than an opinion journalist.

Some of the biggest names in Hollywood gathered at the 72nd Tony Awards on Sunday night to join actor Robert De Niro in trashing President Donald Trump. Among the A-List celebrities who goaded De Niro on with an enthusiastic standing ovation for his “F**k Trump” tirade were John Leguizamo, Harry Hadden Paton, and Rebecca Night. Actor Mark Hamill of Star Wars fame took to Twitter, praising Dirty Grandpa for giving “people what they want” and suggesting he earned his standing ovation by being a “crowd pleaser.” Kathy Griffin soon joined in, declaring herself a member of the “F**k Trump Club.”

After vote fails to condemn Hamas,
Haley calls UN an unserious

A United States amendment to a Palestinian-backed draft resolution at the U.N. General Assembly that would have condemned the terrorist group Hamas was defeated even before getting a vote Wednesday afternoon because of a procedural maneuver by Algeria, one of the sponsors of the Palestinian draft resolution. U.S. Ambassador Nikki Haley, before the voting, said that the attempt to obstruct the vote was “shameful.” The U.S. amendment would have been added onto a Palestinian-backed draft resolution that, in part, called for consideration of an international protection force for Palestinian civilians without any condemnation

President Trump declared Wednesday that there is “no longer a Nuclear Threat from North Korea” as he returned to Washington, offering a rosy assessment of a summit with the leader of a nation that still possesses nuclear weapons. “Just landed - a long trip, but everybody can now feel much safer than the day I took office. There is no longer a Nuclear Threat from North Korea,” the president said on Twitter. In a separate tweet, he said that North Korea is no longer the United States’ most dangerous problem, as President Barack Obama had characterized it upon leaving office.

SAN ANTONIO — Dozens of people, including some children, were discovered in a tractor-trailer in San Antonio. KSAT-TV reports that authorities from several agencies were called to a North Side neighborhood around 8:30 p.m. on Tuesday and found 55 people suspected of entering the country illegally in and around a tractor-trailer. Homeland Security Investigations spokeswoman Nina Pruneda confirmed that the agency is investigating. San Antonio Fire Department chief Charles Hood says all the people appeared to be in good health. Hood said, "This truck was air-conditioned, thank God. This truck had water. So they were hydrated."

On North Korea, a president who
tried something different
Washington Examiner, by Byron York    Original Article
Posted By: toledo- 6/12/2018 11:41:27     Post Reply
Reaction to President Trump´s summit with North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un has broken down along the usual Trump-anti-Trump divisions. The truth is, it will take a while before it´s clear whether the summit achieved anything or not. But give the president credit for trying a new approach to an intractable problem. Trump had no electoral mandate on North Korea. Despite the oversized role it has played in his presidency, the issue of Kim did not come up much in the 2016 campaign. It was rarely discussed in the GOP primary debates and wasn´t a factor in the Trump-Clinton general election debates.

Donald Trump said Tuesday that part of his hard sell to Kim Jong-un about giving up his nuclear weapons was a video that showed the benefits of shaking off the chains of near-global economic sanctions – including the possibility of developing his country´s beaches. ´They have great beaches! You see that whenever they´re exploding the cannons into the ocean, right?´ Trump said after he played the dramatic, Hollywood-produced four minute video for the press corps. ´So I said, "Boy, look at that beach. Wouldn´t that make a great condo behind" – and I explained it,´ the real estate billionaire recalled.

White House counselor Kellyanne Conway´s husband on Monday released an article defending the constitutionality of special counsel Robert Mueller´s probe into alleged ties between the Trump campaign and Russia´s election meddling. The piece, titled "The Terrible Arguments Against the Constitutionality of the Mueller Investigation," takes aim at President Trump´s recent Twitter attacks on the probe, in which the president argues the investigation is unconstitutional. (Tweet) Conway points out the initial spelling errors in the tweet and said he most likely got his argument from conservative legal scholar Steven Calabresi.

SINGAPORE - Singapore is footing the hotel bill for North Korean leader Kim Jong Un and his contingent, Foreign Minister Vivian Balakrishnan said on Monday (June 11). "It´s hospitality that we would have offered them, and as Chairman Kim said yesterday, he would have liked to have come to Singapore anyway, with or without the summit," Dr Balakrishnan said in an interview with the BBC. Mr Kim, who is Chairman of North Korea´s State Affairs Commission, arrived in Singapore on Sunday for a historic summit on Tuesday with United States President Donald Trump to discuss possible denuclearisation efforts.

During his three decades as a emergency-room doctor, Bob Uslander had never written a prescription for a lethal dose of medication. But then he shifted to geriatric and palliative care, and in 2016, a patient suffering from the neurodegenerative disease ALS wanted to use California’s new physician-assisted death law. Uslander was apprehensive. Until then, he’d always viewed death as a failure. “I didn’t really know what it would be like to be with somebody who had made the choice and was taking this medication,” he recalled recently. “I didn’t know if they would just gently fall asleep or if they would be

Former first lady Laura Bush tore into the Trump administration for separating migrant families at the border, calling the “zero tolerance” policy “cruel” and “immoral.” Bush penned an op-ed for the Washington Post, which was published Sunday night as public outcry over the hundreds of children in detention centers intensified. “I live in a border state,” Bush wrote. “I appreciate the need to enforce and protect our international boundaries, but this zero-tolerance policy is cruel. It is immoral. And it breaks my heart.” Bush’s commentary comes as more images and accounts from inside the detention centers have

The state of Illinois has approved $224 million to pay for street and transportation projects in Chicago´s South Side neighborhood around the Obama Presidential Center site, $199 million of which will fall directly on the shoulders of Illinois taxpayers. Gov. Bruce Rauner signed into law the legislature´s budget on June 4, which included $174 million for road work in and around Jackson Park — where the 235-foot-tall building would be located — and another $50 million to renovate an above-ground rail stop two miles away. “Bringing the Obama Presidential Center to Chicago took leadership and vision, and we are gratified that our

Christian leaders across the country have taken issue with Attorney General Jeff Session´s usage of the Bible as justification of his policy that is separating thousand of immigrant families at the border. Sessions cited Romans 13 to attempt to justify how separating families was ordained by God because ´orderly and lawful processes are good in themselves and protect the weak and lawful.´ For religious leaders who still weren´t pleased with his usage of scripture, he offered them to ´speak up strongly to urge anyone who would come here to apply lawfully, to wait their turn and not violate the law.´

The White House called MSNBC´s Joe Scarborough´s comments comparing the actions of immigration law enforcement officers at US border crossings to those of Nazis ´appalling´ on Friday. Scarborough pointed out while hosting ´Morning Joe´ on Friday that federal agents at US borders have reportedly used tactics similar to those used by Nazi soldiers during World War II to separate Jewish families, in saying children are being taken to ´shower´ and never returning with them. ´This is the type of inflammatory and unacceptable rhetoric that puts a target on the backs of our great law enforcement,´ White House deputy press secretary Hogan Gidley

The president of Harvard´s teaching hospital got to thinking one day and decided there were too many portraits of white male doctors hung in a popular amphitheater. She bemoaned the horrible situation that people walking into the amphitheater didn´t feel like they "belonged." The problem cried out for a solution. So she moved several portraits of prominent white doctors in order to be more diverse and inclusive. Problem solved? Campus Reform: The hospital’s president, Dr. Betsy Nabel, told the Globe that moving the portraits is the right decision: “I have watched the faces of individuals as they have come into Bornstein.

Phil Mickelson´s 48th birthday took a stunning turn at the US Open on Saturday when he stopped a putt from rolling off the 13th green. Clearly at the end of his tether after a shocking run of bogeys in his third round, the much-decorated American embarrassed himself when another putt rolled past the hole. Instead of waiting to see where it finished, he stopped the ball with his putter and knocked it back whence it came. (Photos/Video) It meant an automatic two-shot penalty and he ended up with a 10 for the hole. ´That´s absolutely amazing, that´s Phil basically giving
