  3. http://digitalchew.com/2017/10/18/brain-death-study/ Brains May Continue to Function Even After Death, Study Finds By Brent Edward October 18, 2017 Here’s some scary news just in time for Halloween. Studies suggest that our brains still function after we die. That means, when we die, we know that we are dead. The research was first published in 2014 and says our consciousness may still function for a period after our physical body is declared dead. Therefore, it is arguable that a person could hear themselves be pronounced dead by a doctor. This study, which is the most significant scientific studies of its kind, was done by a team of researchers led by Dr. Sam Parnia, the director of critical care and resuscitation research at NYU Langone School of Medicine in New York. Parnia and his team of researchers studied people who had suffered cardiac arrest and had technically been declared dead and then later revived. A large number of participants in the study report being aware of their surroundings during the period in which they were pronounced dead. While most were unable to recall specific memories, 39% of the study’s participants could describe a “perception awareness.” A small percent say they were able to hear full conversations, and even see what was happening around them. Dr. Parnia tells the Independent, death is scientifically defined by the heart no longer beating and the lack of blood flow to the brain. “Technically, that’s how you get the time of death – it’s all based on the moment when the heart stops,” Dr. Parnia states. “Once that happens, blood no longer circulates to the brain, which means brain function halts almost instantaneously.” Moreover, “you lose all your brain stem reflexes – your gag reflex, your pupil reflex, all that is gone,” Dr. Parnia continues. However, this research suggests brain energy that happens after death could indicate that death is more complicated than that. A 2013 study from the University of Michigan studied brain signals of rats that were anesthetized and experienced a heart attack. Researchers of the study observed brain activity suggesting a “hyper-alerted state” shortly after the rats were pronounced dead. “This is a very neat demonstration of an idea that’s been around for a long time: that under certain unfamiliar and confusing circumstances – like near-death – the brain becomes overstimulated and hyperexcited… “ Dr. Jason Braithwaite, the professor at the University of Birmingham, told BBC in regards to the rat research. “Like ‘fire raging through the brain,’ activity can surge through brain areas involved in conscious experience, furnishing all resultant perceptions with realer-than-real feelings and emotions.”
  4. Debunked Stories

    https://www.gossipcop.com/madonna-lady-gaga-boxing-match-fight-feud-las-vegas/ Madonna Challenging Lady Gaga To Boxing Match In Las Vegas? Truth rating: 0 By Andrew Shuster | 6:06 pm, October 18, 2017 Is Madonna really challenging Lady Gaga to a boxing match? One of this week’s new tabloids claims the singers may duke it out in a big Las Vegas bout to settle their differences once and for all. Gossip Cop looked into the ridiculous story and we’ve exclusively learned the truth. Madonna and Lady Gaga have had a semi-feud since 2012 when the elder pop star referred to her protege’s music as “reductive” and accused her of ripping off one of her songs. Gaga recalls the incident in her new Netflix documentary Gaga: Five Foot Two, saying she was bothered by Madonna’s comment, adding, “She wouldn’t look me in the eye and tell me I’m reductive.” It should be noted, Gaga went on to acknowledge she has a lot of admiration for the singer, while Madonna has called Gaga “a very talented singer and songwriter” in the time since she first slammed her. The National Enquirer, however, now says Madonna is enraged about Gaga rehashing the beef in her documentary. A so-called “source” tells the magazine, “Madonna is seething! She’s determined to get the last word by settling their differences publicly. So she’s challenging Gaga to fight it out in a big-ticket boxing match in Las Vegas.” The outlet’s dubious insider adds, “It won’t hurt that Madonna will score a huge payday and tons of press. Her handlers are begging her to reconsider, but trying to convince her that the scheme reeks of desperation.” The seemingly made-up source continues, “But the reality is Madonna lives for the attention. She’s going to shame Gaga into agreeing by goading her in public to take up the challenge.” Despite how ludicrous this all sounds, Gossip Cop still checked in with a source close to the situation, who exclusively assures us Madonna hasn’t challenged Gaga to a boxing match. This is all completely bogus. Unfortunately, the Enquirer has a habit of publishing preposterous claims about the legendary singer. Gossip Cop recently busted the magazine for making up a story about Madonna letting kids starve at a birthday party for her daughter Mercy. Shortly before that nonsense, we called out the publication for alleging Madonna drunk dials everyone she knows. This latest article is more fiction from the repeatedly discredited outlet.
  5. Trump / US politics thread 🚽

    Is there a rock bottom for Trump? http://www.nydailynews.com/new-york/brooklyn/dad-slain-soldier-hasn-heard-w-h-calls-trump-liar-article-1.3572381 Dad of slain soldier hasn’t heard from W.H., calls Trump 'a liar' BY NANCY DILLON NEW YORK DAILY NEWS Wednesday, October 18, 2017, 5:41 PM The Brooklyn dad of a soldier killed in Iraq two months ago blasted President Trump as a cold-hearted con artist. Uvince Brooks, 58, said his family hasn’t received a call or a condolence letter from the White House since 30-year-old Army Sgt. Roshain Brooks lost his life Aug. 13 to an artillery blast. “He’s a liar. He’s lying. He didn’t contact us,” the distraught dad said of Trump's claims this week he has personally called all the military families who lost soldiers on his watch. “Nobody from the White House cares about my family and our grief. If they cared, they would say something to us,” the Canarsie handyman originally from Jamaica said. First reached by the Daily News in August, Brooks initially declined to comment on whether any White House officials attended his son’s dignified transfer at Dover Air Force Base. Brooks said Trump’s boastful comments this week and reports he “disrespected” relatives of slain Army Sgt. La David Johnson during a call on Tuesday filled him with fury. “I’m so upset, so upset with that guy telling so much lies. I’m so distraught by those words he said,” Brooks told The News. “He’s a damn disgrace to the White House. I've been here for 17 years. Presidents George Bush and Obama, none of them behaved like this guy. This guy is a damn lunatic.” The grieving dad said he wished he could offer comfort to Sgt. Johnson’s pregnant widow, Myeshia Johnson, who was photographed crying over her husband’s flag-draped casket on Tuesday. “We grieve with her,” Brooks said. “I pray for her just like I pray for myself.” According to Democratic Congresswoman Frederica Wilson of Florida, Trump called Myeshia Johnson Tuesday and said her husband “knew what he signed up for.” President Trump called the account “fabricated” in a Twitter post, but La David Johnson's mother, Cowanda Jones-Johnson, told The Associated Press that Rep. Wilson’s account was correct. “When I listen to what the President is saying, I want to fight,” Brooks told The News. He said the profound pain relatives experience when they lose a loved one in combat deserves more sensitivity and respect. Even after nearly 10 weeks, he and his wife still have trouble getting through each day, he said. “We can’t sleep at night. My wife can’t sleep, and I have to stay up with her. So to hear (Trump) coming out, lying like that, it makes it even worse,” he said. Brooks recalled his son as a dedicated soldier who loved his country. The son completed a prior tour in Afghanistan in 2014. “From the day that guy was born, he was a hero to me. He was my first born, my right eye. He was everything to me,” the proud father said. “He’s a hero. We did a lot of things together. Losing him was almost like losing myself.”
  6. Mass shooting in Las Vegas

    It's gross. Despite being the worst mass shooting ever in the U.S. it is already being treated like "old news" in the media and it did absolutely nothing to get lawmakers to do anything. Or even just debate it!

    http://www.nydailynews.com/news/national/trump-denies-telling-army-widow-knew-signed-article-1.3571173 Trump 'did disrespect my son and my daughter,' soldier's mom says BY TERENCE CULLEN NEW YORK DAILY NEWS Updated: Wednesday, October 18, 2017, 11:10 AM President Trump flatly denied a Florida congresswoman’s claim he was sarcastic with the widow of an Army sergeant killed in Niger. “Democrat Congresswoman totally fabricated what I said to the wife of a soldier who died in action (and I have proof). Sad!” the commander-in-chief tweeted Wednesday morning. The tweet came minutes after Rep. Frederica Wilson (D-Fla.) appeared on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” to discuss his phone call with the widow of Sgt. LaDavid Johnson, who was killed in Niger on Oct. 3. Trump called Johnson’s widow, Myeshia, Tuesday — and Wilson claimed Trump told her “he knew what he signed up for...but when it happens it hurts anyway.” What’s worse, Wilson added, Trump forgot Johnson’s name during the call. “She was in tears,” Wilson, who represents parts of northern Miami, told the show. “She was in tears and she said he didn't even remember his name!” Wilson later told CNN she wasn’t sure what proof Trump might have — as stated in his tweets. “I’m not the only person that was in the car,” Wilson told the network. “This man is a sick man.” The lawmaker, who said she knew Johnson since he was a child, added she wanted to hop on the phone and yell at the commander-in-chief. “You know what, I think I was going to curse him out,” Wilson said. The call came as Johnson’s family was en route to Miami International Airport, where his body arrived in a flag-draped casket. Cowanda Jones-Johnson, the soldier’s mother, told the Washington Post on Wednesday she was in the car during the call and that Wilson’s account was accurate. “President Trump did disrespect my son and my daughter and also me and my husband,” she told the newspaper via Facebook Messenger. She declined to give further details. The flare up comes as Trump faced criticism he didn’t reach out to the soldiers’ families soon enough. Instead, Trump pointed to the death of Marine Lt. Robert Kelly, son of White House Chief of Staff John Kelly, who died while fighting in Afghanistan in 2010. Trump, speaking Tuesday with Fox News Radio, suggested that President Obama hadn't called Kelly, then a Marine general.
