Sections SEARCH Skip to content Skip to site index Subscribe Log In New York | ‘I’m Petitioning … for the Return of My Life’ When Phyllis Funke hit bottom, the court appointed a guardian to prop her up. The remedy is like prison, she said. But “at least in prison you have rights.” For Ms. Funke, every item in her apartment has a purpose or a story. But when the building called it hoarding, it started her on the road to guardianship. Now she can’t get out. Credit Credit Lily Landes for The New York Times Supported by ByJohn Leland Dec. 7, 2018 The last weeks that Phyllis Funke could legally make decisions for herself, she climbed into bed, planning to stay there for a while. It was the end of 2016 and she felt disillusioned with the election and wounded by her brother’s recent move to Texas. She wasn’t considering suicide, she said. She just needed to go … [Read more...] about ‘I’m Petitioning … for the Return of My Life’
Give answers of my questions
HUFFPOST PERSONAL 11/26/2018 12:49 pm ET Shirley Ngozi NwangwaGuest Writer I’m really sorry, but I have to drag Alex Trebek. But first, some history. Since 1984, the beloved host of “Jeopardy!” has been a staple of daytime television. Not unlike many kids, watching “Jeopardy!” — and most importantly, yelling out the answers in the form of questions — and other game shows was a pastime for the whole family; specifically for my dad and me. My parents are Nigerian immigrants of the Igbo tribe who emphasized and emulated the values of family, culture and education my whole life. Watching Trebek rattle off those clues while battling my dad for the quickest return of correct answers was comforting, and an assurance that I was smart (I was too young to realize that the contestants’ demographics rarely matched my own, but that’s a story for another time). I was on the receiving end of role of “Jeopardy!” in … [Read more...] about Why It Matters That Alex Trebek Mispronounced The Name Of My People On ‘Jeopardy!’
By Jeff MasonWASHINGTON (Reuters) - President Donald Trump on Friday said he had "very easily" completed his written answers for Special Counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into Russia's role in the 2016 U.S. election, but had not yet submitted them to Mueller's office. Speaking to reporters at the White House, Trump said he wrote the answers to the questions himself."My lawyers don't write answers. I write answers. I was asked a series of questions. I've answered them very easily," Trump said. The Republican president did not specify when his legal team would give Mueller his written responses, but a person familiar with the matter told Reuters they likely would be submitted next week. Peter Carr, a spokesman for Mueller, declined to comment."I'm sure they're tricked-up because, you know, they like to catch people," Trump said, referring to questions that he suggested could be designed to result in perjury charges. "You have to always be careful when you answer, with people that … [Read more...] about Trump says he ‘easily’ answered Russia probe questions
Parents of Fully-vaccinated Children with Cancer Want Answers to the Question: “Is There a Vaccine/Cancer Connection?” By “The Truth About Cancer” columnist Landee Martin (https://thetruthaboutcancer.com/vaccine-cancer-connection/comment-page-1/#comments) “ According to the vaccine package inserts, a list of side effects includes seizures, asthma, diabetes, eczema, allergies, auto-immune disease, autism, and more. There are many studies linking vaccines to arthritis, chronic cognitive dysfunction, behavioral changes, learning disabilities, motor function impairment, autism, and cancer to name a few.” “Currently there are over 250 experimental, unapproved-by-the-FDA vaccines in Big Pharma’s developmental pipeline. (Who among us will be forced to submit to any or all of them once they are approved for marketing?)” “This vaccine has not been evaluated for its carcinogenic or mutagenic … [Read more...] about Parents of Fully-vaccinated Children with Cancer Want Answers to the Question:“Is There a Vaccine/Cancer Connection?
HUFFPOST PERSONAL 08/17/2018 11:02 am ET Louise HungGuest Writer I started to hate the question, “Are you so excited for ‘Crazy Rich Asians’?” Friends, coworkers, in-laws ― everyone wanted to hear how fry-me-a-dumpling, feng-shui-my-life-delighted I was about the upcoming movie. I admit, I did it to myself. After spending months leading up to the release reading the books, writing about the production, and ranting about Asian representation in the media, of course people expected me to want to talk about The Asian Movie of the Century. But after the first few “Oh my God, yes it’s so important …” responses I doled out, I couldn’t do it anymore. I was scared. I was scared that “Crazy Rich Asians” would let me down. That the hype couldn’t be real. That the all-Asian cast and largely Asian production team’s end product would be a “nice” movie … [Read more...] about In All 36 Years Of My Life, I’ve Never Felt As ‘Seen’ As I Did Watching ‘Crazy Rich Asians’
