The current medical definition of death is when the heart stops beating. In an interview with LiveScience, NYU Langone’s Sam Parnia, a pulmonologist who studies resuscitation, notes that from that point, it takes up to 20 seconds before brain waves are no longer detectable. If you manage to restart the heart, which is what CPR attempts to do, you'll gradually start to get the brain functioning again.

John Kelly believes women are “sacred” ― or at least they used to be.
DEAR ABBY: I will soon be married 48 years, but it is not much of a marriage. There is no sex, no touching, no kind and compassionate words, only bickering and arguing. I can’t figure out why I’m still here. I have thought about leaving many times. I have written three books, and because of it, my husband has ridiculed me. I have also owned and operated two businesses. I’m active in the community, which he resents. He is an introvert, while I am an extrovert. He no longer accompanies me to activities, but when he did, he would make snide remarks to people who stopped to chat with us. So I no longer invite him. Help me, please! - SAD, LONELY WIFE DEAR WIFE: I will try. If you are asking my permission
Deputy Secretary of State John Sullivan told reporters on Tuesday that while the State Department remained focused on quelling tensions with North Korea through diplomatic channels, that the nation and world must remain prepared for the possibility that those efforts will fail.
Warning: Graphic language GAINESVILLE, Fla. - A man in a swastika T-shirt wandered into an angry crowd of anti-white-supremacist protesters in Gainesville on Thursday, where he got jostled, punched, and - of all things - hugged. The skinhead, whose white T-shirt featured multiple gray swastikas, found himself in the midst of an angry crowd at the University of Florida in Gainesville. Some 300 protesters had gathered there to demonstrate against white supremacist Richard Spencer, who was giving a speech at the student center. The mob surrounded the skinhead; video of the encounter recorded shouts of “F- you!” and “Leave him alone!” “Speak your mind,” one protester demanded of the silent man. “Everybody
Minister of Agriculture suggested the move to Putin during a meeting last week as a way to increase overseas trade.
First lady Melania Trump is now 25 percent more likely to dump her husband, the president, before the end of the year, thanks to this week's body double rumors, an Irish bookmaker said Wednesday. Paddy Power had offered bettors 16-1 odds that the Trumps would move from Washington to Splitsville - but dropped those odds to 12-1 after online conspiracists floated the notion that the first lady is sending a stand-in to pose next to her husband. “It looks like a case of Donald Dumped, if the conspiracy theorists are anything to go by,” a spokesman for the company said in a release.
The 'Simply Complicated' star documented her road to recovery with bulimia nervosa.
Over the span of five years, Angela Crickmore dropped 70 pounds and went from a size 20 to a 6, and her before-and-after transformation is truly inspiring. After moving from Brazil to London and starting a job that provided her with unhealthy meals every day, Angela slowly started to put on weight. At her heaviest, she weighed about 190 pounds and always felt tired. "I wasn't happy at all with myself; I felt I was trapped in someone else's body," she admitted in a recent YouTube video on her channel. So what was the "aha moment" that sparked Angela's desire to change her body? The lightbulb went off in her head when she visited her hairdresser, who had recently dropped a ton of weight. Seeing

Quentin Tarantino Says He Knew About Weinstein for Years
A convicted cop killer who sued Alabama over its lethal injection method was put to death Thursday night, but not before he cursed at the state and said: "I hate you." As the procedure began, Torrey Twane McNabb, 40, raised both of his middle fingers in a show of defiance. McNabb's attorneys had unsuccessfully sought to stop the execution since he is one of several inmates in an ongoing lawsuit challenging the humaneness of the state's lethal injection procedure. McNabb was convicted of killing Montgomery police officer Anderson Gordon in 1997. He shot Gordon five times as the officer sat in his patrol car after arriving at a traffic accident McNabb caused while fleeing a bail bondsman, prosecutors

But before this miraculous moment took place, it had been a challenging two months for the young parents from Virginia Beach, Virginia. Christy says throughout her pregnancy she had no warning that her daughter may be deaf, so the news that Charlotte was born with hearing loss came as a total surprise to the couple. Neither Christy or her husband have a history of hearing loss in their families. "It was shocking," Christy says. "I had never met a deaf person in my life until my daughter." A post shared by Christy Keane 🕊 (@theblushingbluebird) on Sep 22, 2017 at 8:42am PDT Within the first 24 hours of Charlotte's birth on August 2, doctors initially dismissed the hearing loss as fluid blockage.
Jay Gruden and Browns fans have something in common: They both wish Carson Wentz didn’t go to Philadelphia. Gruden, the Washington coach whose team is preparing to face Wentz’s Eagles, lavished praise on Wentz today and perhaps took a little shot at the Browns for trading the pick that the Eagles used to draft Wentz.

This collection of photographs shows an array of amazing and rare white animals. The rarity of the white animal is just one reason these photographs are so magical - however it is the range of animals that really demonstrate the rarity. Some, such as the white elephant, taken by Anatoly Berman, can be seen standing with a completely white body, whereas Alba - the white orangutan, from Borneo Orangutan Survival Foundation, can be seen with piercing blue eyes. Alongside the rarities is a white puffin, taken by Mike Bodman, who’s dazzling white breast contradicts its signature orange beak. However, closer to home than the more exotic animals, the crisp white deer was spotted in London’s Richmond Park by photographer Mark Bridger.

Russian President Vladimir Putin has called on U.S. citizens to stop disrespecting President Donald Trump, a trend that the Russian leader called a symptom of a poor political system in the U.S. Putin, who U.S. officials have accused of swaying the 2016 U.S. presidential race in Trump's favor, broke a streak of hostile diplomatic exchanges between the two leading powers during a speech Thursday in order to defend his former political ally from what he considers unfair criticism at home. Speaking at the Valdai Discussion Club in Sochi, Putin again denied any claims of Russian interference in last year's U.S. elections, asserting that Trump "won honestly" and that he and his supporters have behaved legitimately in response to the current U.S. political climate.
Earlier this month, an absurd conspiracy theory began to spread alleging Melania Trump employed a body double -- and now people claim they've found her. Since February, a woman, who just seems to be a Secret Service agent, has been pictured with the first family on several occasions. In photos, the woman appears to be dressed like a typical Secret Service agent, wearing black or dark blue pantsuits and sensible shoes.
