treatment news

Oh nice, my mom isn’t speaking to me. Is it because i, 1) bought something with my own money, 2) am bad at focusing on schoolwork, or 3) she’s angry at something else and taking it out on me via the silent treatment

That is what a Union is about. The UK should know this better than anyone, but maybe England is so used to its superior position in its own union, they forgot what happens when you stab a friend in the back.

Being the friend that invites himself to parties, but that doesn’t stay to clean up afterwards, what did they expect. And now their own citizens have to bear those consequences. Speaking of responsibilities… They should also look at what they are doing to their own people instead of whining about unfair treatment.

I can't stand customers who lie so they can get special treatment. News flash, asshole, you're getting someone totally innocent in trouble, and maybe even fired if. Don't lie just so you can walk out with a few extra bucks in your pocket.

Fox News Is Now Being Sued For Racial Discrimination And Harassment
Fox News anchor Kelly Wright has joined 12 other current and former employees, saying that they were targeted and harassed for years because of their skin color.
By Brianna Sacks

Fox News anchor and reporter Kelly Wright has joined 12 other current and former employees in a lawsuit against the network, claiming they endured repeated racial discrimination and harassment.

The embattled network has been trying to repair its image after recently firing its top-rated host Bill O'Reilly and former chief Roger Ailes over sexual harassment claims, both of whom have vehemently denied the allegations.

Wright, who has worked at Fox since 2003, says he was sidelined and denied opportunities for advancement because he is black, and accused the network of “plantation-style management,” according to the suit.

The veteran anchor said O’Reilly repeatedly refused to allow him on his show to discuss race relations in America, and in one instance, shunned Wright’s series focusing on the racial divide in Ferguson, Missouri, because it painted “blacks in too positive a light.”

Wright also claims that Bill Shine, the network’s co-president, obsessively focused on his skin color, often asking him “how do you think white viewers look at you?” He said he repeatedly flagged the treatment to senior Fox News executives, who did nothing.

The network did not immediately respond to a BuzzFeed News request for comment.

In the suit filed Tuesday, the twelve other current and former Fox News employees detail instances where they were allegedly targeted because of the color of their skin. Musfiq Rahman, who previously worked in the payroll department, claims that he was banned from the second floor of the network’s New York City headquarters after mistakenly walking into the office of former Fox News chairman Roger Ailes.

“The fallout for Mr. Rahman’s ‘mistake’ was swift and severe,” the lawsuit alleges. “Ailes was furious and his paranoia about being attacked came to the forefront. That same day, Ailes ordered that a wall be constructed immediately in his personal office to act as a barrier to entry.”

The next day, Rahman, who is described as a “dark-skinned Bangladeshi,” and a number of Black employees in the Accounts Receivable and Accounts Payable Departments, had their security passes to the second floor revoked, the suit claims.

Tichaona Brown and Tabrese Wright, two former black employees, said they experienced “horrific discrimination at the hands" of Fox’s former comptroller Judith Slater. The network vowed that it fired Slater on Feb. 28 after learning of the allegations.

The two women claim Slater would target them and other black employees with racist comments, like inquiring if all three of Wright’s children were fathered by the same man, asking “Why are all black men women-beaters?,” and forcing black employees to practice saying certain words correctly in front of white employees, the complaint says.

“When it comes to racial discrimination, 21st Century Fox has been operating as if it should be called 18th Century Fox,” Douglas Wigdor and Jeanne Christensen, who are representing the 13 plaintiffs, said in a statement Tuesday.

“If 21st Century Fox choses to defend the indefensible–systemic race discrimination—we will utilize our collective efforts and resources to hold those responsible for these egregious discriminatory acts before a Bronx jury,” the attorneys said.

Platypus venom paves way to possible diabetes treatment - BBC News
Australian researchers say platypus venom could pave the way for new type 2 diabetes treatments.

“The males of the extraordinary semi-aquatic mammal - one of the only kind to lay eggs - have venomous spurs on the heels of their hind feet. The poison is used to ward off adversaries. But scientists at the University of Adelaide have discovered it contains a hormone that could help treat diabetes. Known as GLP-1 (glucagon-like peptide-1), it is also found in humans and other animals, where it promotes insulin release, lowering blood glucose levels. But it normally degrades very quickly. Not for the duck-billed bottom feeders though. Or for echidnas, also known as spiny anteaters - another iconic Australian species found to carry the unusual hormone. Both produce a long-lasting form of it, offering the tantalising prospect of creating something similar for human diabetes sufferers.”

It is way better to give

than receive, and for me far easier. Today was a day that tested me sorely and also made me appreciate my blessings more.

I got up at 4:30 this morning to go to chemo in the dark. I drove about an hour and met a friend who drove me the remaining two hours. Drink the solution, have the CT scan and walk through the streets of Boston to the treatment hospital. ( I could have walked the covered bridge, but I have chills easily and it was warm out. Labs and replace the CT scan IV with one in the other arm for treatment.

Get the wonderful news that the CT scan indicates my tumor has shrunk by 47% and this has to be my guiding principle for the remainder of the day.

First solution goes in perfectly. Something happens with the second and my arms swells up with fluid that should be going into a vein. Treatment stops. Have to go back tomorrow. Three hour drive home and then repeat tomorrow, but I have no idea whom I can call upon to drive me at such short notice.

My high school friend comes to every treatment and we play Scrabble. She is still there when I get the news and offers to take me to her home which is 14 miles away and will only take an hour in rush hour traffic.

The hardest thing for me is to accept that I am inconveniencing others but that they take on the task willingly.

So here I am in a guest room, sleeping in a borrowed nightie as she washes my clothes so I can return clean in the morning. A brand new toothbrush and paste on the nightstand.

Anne came up into my room and said she knows how upset I am about putting others out and she tells me about the man who drove every Saturday and Sunday to NYC ( from NJ) to deliver platelets to her husband when the hospital wouldn’t do it on weekends. She tells me she is paying it forward and some day I will have the chance to do the same.

I am reminded that 20 years ago my very best friend was suffering from ALS. Her husband was her only caregiver because she was embarrassed to let others see her that way. I was able to drive an hour every weekend for years to take the burden off him. I made meals, fed her, cleaned her in the bathroom, shaved her and did all method of personal care so he could go to church, sit and read at the beach and just have some time to get his head together.

It never felt like an imposition; it never felt like work. We laughed and cried and shared so much. It made me happy to do it and it never occurred to me that she felt guilty in her neediness. I hope she did not.

But I realized good deeds do not exists in a vacuum. We need to do them in this world of hate, but we also graciously need to accept them in our need. That was reinforced for me today and I will try to be more accepting of both my limitations and the generous kindness of others. Again I repeat I truly walk on the backs of angels.

🙏🙏😇😇❤️❤️

Yaaaay, Yoosung day!!! I'm gonna request something our poor floofy baby is gonna have to deal with someday: one of the pets in his care dying/needing to be euthanized. Aaaaaangst~

(。•́︿•̀。) Why do you want to hurt me?


- At first, he refused to believe it. There was a brief moment where the puppy was doing well, where it even managed a playful bark once. He’s dead set on figuring out why it was okay for that brief amount of time- What medicine did they use? Did it get sick with something else??

- So for a couple of nights, he’s running on just coffee and determination, but before he can find a new treatment, he gets the news that it’s not going to make it into the next day.

- On the phone he just sounds exhausted, but when he hangs up he’s looking for you and burying his face against your shoulder. He seems a bit calm, just wrapping his arms around you and squeezing you tight, but he slowly starts shaking, and then he’s outright sobbing

- “What am I going to say to that little girl? I promised her I would- I just. I promised-”

- He doesn’t sleep again that night. He’s trying his best to stop crying, stop being so emotional, but then he imagines the young owner and starts crying again.

- In the morning he’s just a zombie. Two nights worth of bags under his eyes, hand barely holding onto the coffee mug you bought him a few months ago. He doesn’t eat breakfast, but he manages a small smile when you kiss him goodbye.

- And at work he’s stressed. He had a nurse put the puppy down overnight, and he’s just waiting for that little girl and the mother to come in.

- When she does, the mom and the girl take one look at him and realize that the puppy didn’t make it. He can’t even get the words out- He’s never had to explain this situation. All of the animals under his care had lived before this one.

- Of course the girl cries, and it’s hard for him not to either. Especially when she gets mad at him. He just doesn’t know how to handle the situation, and eventually the girls mom takes her away, promising to try and take her somewhere to cheer her up.

- Yoosung gets to sleep that night, but for the next few days he’s depressed. No LOLOL, cute animals, or you can even cheer him up. And for a bit, you get legitimately concerned. 

- Then one day he comes home with a soft smile. When you question it, he tells you about the little girl coming back in. Apparently, the little girl felt pretty bad for getting mad at him and came to apologize. The thing he’s happy the most, though, is that she said it wasn’t his fault. That she knew he tried his best. 

- It’s a bit of a relief that her visit cheers him up, but you secretly try to plan again for this in the future, even if he doesn’t want to accept that it may happen again.

Ah, TOP getting *at least* two more weeks of inpatient psychiatric treatment is such good news. That gives us reason to believe they're working hard to treat the root causes of his issues instead of filling him with meds. I'm now hopeful that he's getting a proper diagnosis and a sustainable long-term treatment plan. The past 12 days were exhausting, I can't imagine how his loved ones must feel and how strong they've had to be. I'm ready to start a religion for Mama Choi. What an amazing woman.

I know! if he was only in there a couple of days and then he went home i’d probably be super concerned. But it’s showing exactly how you said. It’s proof they’re trying to get down to the bottom of everything. He deserves it. I hope he’s doing better.

Nancy Reagan refused to help dying Rock Hudson get Aids treatment
Film star’s appeal to US first lady, an old friend, was rejected because Aids was seen as gay disease, say critics of administration’s record
By Alexandra Topping

The only thing worth remembering about Nancy Reagan: She and her husband stood by and intentionally let thousands of people die rather than acting swiftly to address the AIDS epidemic. 

Anorexia // Teen Wolf {w/ a little Brett/OC}

Serious note here guys, anorexia and depression is not a topic to make fun off. It’s a real thing, and it causes lives to be taken. If you know anyone that’s anorexic or depressed {or you are} or looks oddly skinny, don’t keep to yourself. You might just save a life by saying something. 

I was watching CyberBully and after I finished I listened to the song Echo by Jason Walker & How to Save a Life by The Fray and it inspired me to write this.

My character in this imagine will have a name, Jessie Blue. It’s only one part, but I’ll try and make it as long as possible. Maybe I’ll do a part two, idk if requested then I will.

This is an AU, so most of the characters will be alive and some will still be here. {Allison, Aiden, Ethan, Isaac and Peter won’t be so evil here.} There is no Theo here.
