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.
David Schwimmer has been roundly praised by a woman who interviewed him in 2011, noting how his sensitivity contrasted widely with the behaviour of Harvey Weinstein. The spectacular fall from grace of Weinstein, 65, has opened the floodgates for accusations to flow forth in politics, fashion and film. But Nell Minow, in response to the disgust felt at Hollywood behaviour, has spoken of her meeting with the Friends actor in 2011, when he was promoting Trust - the film he directed, telling the real life story of a young girl preyed upon by an online abuser. The restaurant they were due to speak in proved noisy, and so the Friends star hesitantly broached the notion of going up to his room. Schwimmer said he could ask a third person to be present in the room. "I haven’t thought of that since it happened but the Weinstein stories made me not just remember it but remember it in an entirely different context as an indicator of the prevalence of predatory behaviour and as an indicator of Schwimmer’s integrity and sensitivity," she said.

She added: "I just want to say thank you. And, also, your movie was very good."
Deadly wildfires in Northern California that destroyed or damaged nearly 10,000 homes have set off a contentious debate over something seemingly unrelated: immigration. At the center of the dispute are the top cops of Sonoma County and Immigration and Customs Enforcement, who have been sparring publicly this week in what marks the latest instance of state and federal authorities tangling over immigration policies. ICE Acting Director Thomas Homan blasted Sonoma County for so-called sanctuary policies that he said has “left their community vulnerable to dangerous individuals and preventable crimes.” Sonoma County Sheriff Rob Giordano lashed back, saying Homan’s statement was “inaccurate, inflammatory
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.
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.

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.

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

Amazon’s recent announcement of its intent to build a second headquarters in North America has led to rampant speculation as to which city it will choose. Major metro areas like Miami, Boston and New York have been mentioned, along with midsized cities like Raleigh, Pittsburgh and Austin. Most guesses seem to focus on the East Coast. In its request for proposals, Amazon said it’s looking for a metro area with at least 1 million residents, proximity to an international airport, mass transit, quality higher education, an educated workforce, a business-friendly environment and amenities that give it “the potential to attract and retain strong technical talent.” The economists Mark Zandi and Adam

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.
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 bondsmen, prosecutors
What began with Lonzo Ball’s displeasure over a UCLA Bruins basketball tweet celebrating the 2017-18 NBA season has boiled into a budding social-media showdown between the No. 2 pick in the 2017 draft and fellow Los Angeles Lakers rookie Kyle Kuzma. It all began on Tuesday, when the UCLA men’s basketball Twitter account sent out a video of Bruins currently in the NBA dunking while they were in Westwood. While everyone from Russell Westbrook and Kevin Love to Zach LaVine and Norman Powell is shown throwing down, Lonzo’s shine comes on a layup. Of course, Ball, an All-American as a freshman at UCLA, had to respond the next day-even though John Wooden, the legendary coach who’s featured on the voiceover,
If ever there was a story to illustrate just how mad Britain’s property market is, then this is it. A five bedroom home in this parade of townhouses in London’s exclusive Regent’s Park area has been put on the rental market - for £500,000 a year. The new tenant will expect a lot for his or her £10,000 a week - and the Grade I-listed, newly refurbished property certainly delivers. Becky Fatemi, managing director of agents Rokstone, said this was the first refurb carried out specifically to attract a super wealthy renter and will set a “new trend” in the luxury lettings market.
