An Indiana judge orders the release of charging documents in the case of accused murderer Richard Allen, in connection with the 2017 Delphi murders of 14-year-olds Libby German and Abigail Williams. According to the documents, an unspent .40 caliber bullet with extraction marks was found in between the victims. Witnesses tell police they encountered a "kinda creepy" man at the bridge wearing a blue jacket, black boots, and a black hoodie. Another witness said she spotted a man dressed similarly walking away from the Monon High Bridge on the day in question. She noted his clothes were “muddy and bloody." Investigators said security footage captured Allen's Ford Focus in the area on February 13, 2017, at around 1:27 p.m. Allen also reportedly admitted that he was on the bridge on February 13, 2017 in a police interview, claiming he was there to watch the fish. In October 2022, investigators obtained a search warrant for Allen's residence where they found a .40 caliber pistol. The Indiana State Police Laboratory examined the bullet found at the crime scene and ultimately determined that it came from the pistol registered to Allen, and “forensically determined” that the bullet cycled through his gun. Allen claimed he never let anyone else use his gun, but he had no explanation for the bullet found at the crime scene.

VIDEOS: Video Emerges Where Fauci and Others Planned for a “Universal mRNA Flu Vaccine” Which Became the “COVID-19 mRNA Vaccine” Because People were not Afraid Enough of the Flu Virus (1:51) You're Not Going To Believe This! | Mark Steyn & Eva Vlaardingerbroek (3:03) Neil Oliver – ‘…it's a toxic hell…' (START @ 9:00) Gravitas: Who helped Taliban repair the abandoned American aircraft? (7:25) Healthy plant-based diets associated with lower colorectal cancer risk in men Kyung Hee University, South Korea, November 28, 2022 Eating a plant-based diet rich in healthy plant foods—such as whole grains, vegetables, and legumes—and low in unhealthy plant foods—including refined grains, fruit juices, and added sugars—is associated with a lower risk of colorectal cancer in men. The findings are published in the open access journal BMC Medicine.Jihye Kim, the corresponding author, said, “Colorectal cancer is the third-most common cancer worldwide, and the risk of developing colorectal cancer over a lifetime is one in 23 for men and one in 25 for women. Although previous research has suggested that plant-based diets may play a role in preventing colorectal cancer, the impact of plant foods' nutritional quality on this association has been unclear. Our findings suggest that eating a healthy plant-based diet is associated with a reduced risk of colorectal cancer.” Researchers from Kyung Hee University, South Korea found that among a population of 79,952 American men, those who ate the highest average daily amounts of healthy plant-based foods had a 22% lower risk of colorectal cancer, compared to those who ate the lowest amounts of healthy plant foods. However, the authors did not identify any significant associations between the nutritional quality of plant-based diets and colorectal cancer risk among a population of 93,475 American women. Jihye Kim said, “We speculate that the antioxidants found in foods such as fruits, vegetables, and whole grains could contribute to lowering colorectal cancer risk by suppressing chronic inflammation, which can lead to cancer. As men tend to have a higher risk of colorectal cancer than women, we propose that this could help explain why eating greater amounts of healthy plant-based foods was associated with reduced colorectal cancer risk in men but not women.” The authors found that the association between the nutritional quality of plant-based diets and colorectal cancer risk among men varied by race and ethnicity. Among Japanese American men, colorectal cancer risk was 20% lower for those who ate the highest amount of healthy plant foods per day than for those who ate the lowest amount. Among white men, those who ate the highest amount of highest amount of healthy plant foods had a 24% lower colorectal cancer risk than those who ate the lowest amount. The authors did not identify any significant associations between plant-based diets and colorectal cancer risk among African American, Latino or Native Hawaiian men. (next) Green Mediterranean diet reduces twice as much visceral fat as traditional Mediterranean diet Ben-Gurion University of the Negev (Israel), November 28, 2022 Following the green Mediterranean diet significantly reduces visceral adipose tissue, a type of fat around internal organs that is much more dangerous than the extra “tire” around your waist. Recently, researchers compared the green Mediterranean diet to the traditional Mediterranean diet and a non-Mediterranean healthy diet in a large-scale clinical interventional trial—the DIRECT PLUS. Subsequent analysis found that the green Mediterranean diet reduced visceral fat by 14%, the Mediterranean diet by 7% and the non-Mediterranean healthy diet by 4.5%. The study was published in BMC Medicine. Reducing visceral fat is considered the true goal of weight loss, as it is a more important indicator than a person's weight or the circumference of their waist. Visceral fat aggregates over time between organs, and produces hormones and poisons linked to heart disease, diabetes, dementia and premature death. The DIRECT-PLUS trial research team was the first to introduce the concept of the green Mediterranean diet. This modified Mediterranean diet is further enriched with dietary polyphenols and is lower in red/processed meat than the traditional Mediterranean diet. On top of a daily intake of walnuts (28 grams), the participants consumed 3-4 cups of green tea/day and 100 grams (frozen cubes) of duckweed green shake/day. The aquatic green plant duckweed is high in bioavailable protein, iron, B12, vitamins, minerals, and polyphenols and substituted meat intake. The team has shown in previous studies that the green Mediterranean diet has a variety of salutary effects ranging from the microbiome to age-related degenerative diseases. A group of 294 participants took part in the 18-month long trial. “A 14% reduction in visceral fat is a dramatic achievement for making simple changes to your diet and lifestyle. Weight loss is an important goal only if it is accompanied by impressive results in reducing adipose tissue,” notes Dr. Hila Zelicha. (next) Are older women being over-screened for cervical cancer? University of Illinois at Chicago, November 28, 2022 A new study published in JAMA Internal Medicine suggests that women over the age of 65 may be undergoing unnecessary cervical cancer screenings and that more public health data is needed on the utilization of cervical cancer screening-associated services among older women to prevent potential harm and unnecessary costs. The study, which is authored by experts from the University of Illinois Chicago, the University of California San Francisco and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, looked at Medicare claims data from 1999 to 2019 for fee-for-service care for women over the age of 65. The analysis showed that in 2019 more than 1.3 million women received cervical cancer screening-associated services, such as a Pap test, colposcopy, and other cervical procedures after age 65. While these services cost more than $83 million, the researchers concluded they were of “unclear clinical appropriateness.” “Cervical cancer screening and other preventive services are among our most important tools for keeping people healthy throughout life, but screenings should also follow evidence-based guidelines to prevent overspending, potential complications and patient discomfort,” said study co-author Dr. Hunter Holt, assistant professor of family and community medicine at the University of Illinois Chicago. According to recommendations and guidelines from the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force, the American Cancer Society and the American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology, women considered to be of average risk can stop undergoing routine cervical cancer screening once they reach the age of 65 if they have had adequate prior screening. “The decision to end cervical cancer screening for women after age 65 requires review of past screening results and related medical history. This process can promote cervical cancer prevention and prevent harms and costs from unnecessary tests and procedures,” said Jin Qin, study co-author and epidemiologist in CDC's Division of Cancer Prevention and Control. The researchers say that the high rates of screening among older women is potentially concerning. “It could be that women are getting screened when they do not need to, or that these women are considered to be at higher-than-average risk, for example, because they have not been adequately screened prior to 65. We do not want to see either of these things and unfortunately, there is not enough public health data to shed light on the causes,” said Holt, who is also affiliated with the University of Illinois Cancer Center at UIC. (next) Chemotherapy could increase disease susceptibility in future generations Washington State University, November 28, 2022 A common chemotherapy drug could carry a toxic inheritance for children and grandchildren of adolescent cancer survivors, Washington State University-led research indicates. The study, published online in iScience, found that male rats who received the drug ifosfamide during adolescence had offspring and grand-offspring with increased incidence of disease. While other research has shown that cancer treatments can increase patients' chance of developing disease later in life, this is one of the first-known studies showing that susceptibility can be passed down to a third generation of unexposed offspring. “The findings suggest that if a patient receives chemotherapy, and then later has children, that their grandchildren, and even great-grandchildren, may have an increased disease susceptibility due to their ancestors' chemotherapy exposure,” said Michael Skinner, a WSU biologist and corresponding author on the study. Given this study's implications, the researchers recommend that cancer patients who plan to have children later take precautions, such as using cryopreservation to freeze sperm or ova before having chemotherapy. In the study, researchers exposed a set of young male rats to ifosfamide over three days, mimicking a course of treatment an adolescent human cancer patient might receive. Those rats were later bred with female rats who had not been exposed to the drug. The resulting offspring were bred again with another set of unexposed rats. The first-generation offspring had some exposure to the chemotherapy drug since their fathers' sperm was exposed, but researchers found greater incidence of disease in not only the first- but also the second-generation, who had no direct exposure to the drug. While there were some differences by generation and sex, the associated problems included greater incidence of kidney and testis diseases as well as delayed onset of puberty and abnormally low anxiety, indicating a lowered ability to assess risk. The results of the researchers' analysis showed epigenetic changes in two generations linked to the chemotherapy exposure of the originally exposed rats. The fact that these changes could be seen in the grand-offspring, who had no direct exposure to the chemotherapy drug, indicates that the negative effects were passed down through epigenetic inheritance. (next) Saffron can fight liver cancer, reveal UAE researchers United Arab Emirates University, November 20, 2022 It may be an expensive spice but you cannot put a label or price on health, said Professor Amr Amin who has researched a breakthrough in the properties of saffron in fighting liver cancer. Professor Amin from Cellular & Molecular Biology at United Arab Emirates University said that researchers have investigated and found saffron to have anti-liver cancer properties. “Safranal, a major biomolecule of the golden spice saffron arrests and stops the cancer cell division at two different stages,” he said. The UAE researchers have been working on this project since 2011 when they first published the research in the Hepatology Journal. The study suggests a novel mechanism of anti-proliferative activity of safranal against human liver cancer cells. “This molecule could serve as a novel and/or adjuvant drug to treat liver cancer,” said Dr Amin. The findings are now also published in a Nature journal Scientific Reports. “The ingredient works in two ways; it stops cell division and promotes cell death,” he explained. Prof Amin and colleagues concluded that safranal exerts its anticancer effect in HepG2 cells by inhibiting DNA repair, resulting in increased DNA damage. (next) Japanese researchers say that ultrasound therapy can be used to treat patients with dementia Tohoku University (Japan), November 20, 2022 A new therapy based on ultrasound waves might be able to improve the cognitive powers of patients suffering from Alzheimer's disease and other forms of dementia. According to an article on the Tohoku University news page, the approach improved the condition of mice with symptoms similar to human dementia. In their experiment, the Tohoku University research team sent low-intensity pulsed ultrasound (LIPUS) waves through the brain of the mice. They found that the waves improved the creation of blood vessels and the rate of regeneration of nerve cells. Furthermore, the treatment did not cause any notable side effects on the mice. The results led the researchers to believe that they can replicate their experimental success in actual human patients one day. “The LIPUS therapy is a non-invasive physiotherapy that could apply to high-risk elderly patients without the need for surgery or anaesthesia, and could be used repeatedly,” explained TU researcher Hiroaki Shimokawa. The Tohoku researchers applied LIPUS therapy to the whole brain of mice with symptoms that resemble those of Alzheimer's disease or vascular dementia. They did this three times a day, with each session lasting for 20 minutes. The mice that simulated vascular dementia underwent surgery that reduced the amount of blood that reached the brain. These animals underwent LIPUS treatment on the first, third, and fifth days after that surgery. Meanwhile, the mice that modeled Alzheimer's disease got 11 LIPUS treatments over a three-month-long trial period. By the end of the experiment, the researchers found that LIPUS activated genes involved with the cells that made up the inner lining of blood vessels. Furthermore, an enzyme that promoted blood vessel formation displayed increased activity, as did a protein which helped nerve cells grow. Based on their findings, whole-brain LIPUS therapy can help alleviate the symptoms of certain forms of dementia by encouraging the development of cells that are normally affected by the condition. The technique is currently undergoing initial clinical trials that will determine its efficacy and safety.
Guest: Regan N. Theiler, M.D., Ph.D. Host: Darryl S. Chutka, M.D. @chutkaMD Abortion is a common procedure. three out of ten pregnancies and six out of ten unintended pregnancies end with an induced abortion. Overall, about one in four women in the U.S. will have an abortion by the age of 45 years. The U.S. Supreme Court's June 2022 ruling to overturn Roe vs. Wade has shifted the legal battle over abortion to the states, resulting in some states prohibiting abortion and others moving to safeguard it. The topic for this podcast is abortion and what the primary care provider should know. Our guest is Regan N. Theiler, M.D., Ph.D., from the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology at the Mayo Clinic.

In the doula community, there is often a line of demarcation between "new" doulas and "seasoned doulas." Yet no clear line exists that determines when one is no longer considered new. So the question is, when does one become an experienced doula, and how is that experience defined? Could it be that a well-rounded doula can enter this work right from the start? The simple fact is that someone just beginning their doula journey can support a client just as effectively as a doula with years of experience. Doulas often focus on the number of births to define new vs. experienced. Yet, for expectant families, connection with the doula often tips the scales in favor of one doula vs another. In this episode, we challenge the notion of new vs. seasoned doulas. Join us as we discuss why the concept of a "well-rounded doula" is far more important than the number of years of experience or clients served.

In this episode of the IJGC podcast, Editor-in-Chief Dr. Pedro Ramirez is joined by Drs. Ilaria Betella and Francesco Multinu. Dr. Betella is an attending in the Department of Gynecologic Surgery at the European Institute of Oncology (IEO) in Milan. Her research focuses on molecular classification of endometrial cancer and on hereditary gynecologic cancer syndromes. Dr. Multinu is a gynecologic oncologist at the European Institute of Oncology (IEO) in Milan as well as a research collaborator in the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Division of Gynecologic Surgery at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota. His special research interests include surgical and postoperative treatment of endometrial cancer. Highlights: - There is evidence that the new molecular classification will be the future in the management of endometrial cancer. - The implementation of molecular analysis allows oncologists to reallocate to a different risk class 6.8% of endometrial cancers that otherwise would have been misclassified and consequently undertreated or overtreated. - The interpretation of molecular classification requires a validated hierarchical algorithm, for which POLE analysis is essential: Even though POLE testing has not been implemented in many institutions, there is no way to use part of the molecular analysis and completely escape POLE analysis. - According to the new algorithm proposed by Dr. Betella et al., POLE analysis could be spared in 67% of patients and reserved only for those in whom the incorporation of the molecular classification could change the risk class attribution and post-operative management.

Welcome to Living Well with MS. In this episode, we are taking you back to one of our particularly popular webinars, ‘Introduction to Overcoming MS' with Dr. Jonathan White. Whether you are new to Overcoming MS or have followed the Program for years, this episode will be a well-worthy listen as Jonathan guides you through each step and the evidence behind it. This webinar was recorded 30 June 2021 as part of our Finding Hope with Overcoming MS webinar series. You can watch the whole webinar here. Make sure you sign up to our newsletter to hear our latest tips and news about living a full and happy life with MS. And if you're new to Overcoming MS, visit our introductory page to find out more about how we support people with MS. Keep reading for the key episode takeaways and Jonathan's bio. Bio: Career:Jonathan went to University of Glasgow Medical School, graduating in 2008 (MBChB). He completed a further five years of training in Obstetrics and Gynecology and is a member of the Royal College of Obstetricians & Gynecologists (MRCOG). He works at the Causeway Hospital, Coleraine and has a special interest in early pregnancy and recurrent pregnancy loss. In April 2022, Jonathan was awarded “Doctor of the Year” at the inaugural Northern Ireland Health and Social Care Awards. Overcoming MS and personal life:Jonathan was diagnosed with RRMS in October 2015 and has been following the Overcoming MS Program ever since. Dr. White assists Overcoming MS as a medical advisor and event facilitator. He lives on the North Coast of Northern Ireland, is married to Jenny and father to Angus and Struan. His interests include the great outdoors, cycling and running (reluctantly), reading, rugby, film and spending time with his family. You can learn more about his background here. Selected Key Takeaways The 7 steps of the Overcoming MS program Diet: Understanding fats and why animal fat is problematic(22:58) “Saturated fats are those that are generally solid at room temperatures such as butter or the rind on a chop. They mainly come from animals when they are incorporated into the body. They are rigid. They're sticky, they're inflammatory, and they're degenerative. None of these things are something that I want as somebody with a chronic degenerative neurological condition.” Sunlight and Vitamin D: A range of benefits for MS and other conditions(26:09) “Vitamin D has a key role in regulating the immune system and in protecting the brain. We know that there's evidence in a whole host of conditions for the benefit of vitamin D in terms of reducing depression rates, hypertension or high blood pressure, heart disease, diabetes, some cancers, and in my own field, pregnancy losses. There is substantial evidence, particularly for vitamin D in MS prevention and in reducing the severity of the disease.” Exercise: Start low but you can push yourself to improve(32:29) “You should start low and increase slowly. It is okay to push yourself with MS. You're not going to bring on a relapse by lifting one extra rep or swimming a little bit further or walking a bit further. It's okay to go to the point of fatigue.” Mindfulness and Meditation: Evidence they reduce stress(35:41) “Studies have shown that regular mindfulness practice increases the grey and white matter in MRI scans, it promotes neuroplasticity so that [means] rerouting of signals around damaged areas and creating new neural networks.” Medication: Part of the Overcoming MS Program(37:16) “I think in the past, there was a perception that OMS was the slightly alternative area to pursue and, if you were going to that route, you were then against medication. That was Us vs. Them. That could not be further from the truth. It should be us and them together. We know that early medical treatment can alter the disease course in MS. But there are many issues to consider when you choose a treatment and you need to take time and have the space and opportunity to address these with your doctor.” Prevention in family members: Avoid smoking to protect your family(39:23) “[Cigarette smoking] doubles your risk of developing MS in your lifetime. And you're four times more likely to develop progressive MS and on average, eight years earlier. And that's dose-dependent. The more you smoke, the more likely it is. Passive smoking around a child doubles their lifetime risk of MS. It's vitally important that you keep children away from passive smoking.” Change your life, for life: Follow the whole Overcoming MS Program(42:11) “You are not to blame for getting MS, but you are the best person to deal with it. OMS firmly believes the best way to deal with it is: to eat a plant-based whole food diet plus seafood, if you like, with daily flax seed oil, to get enough vitamin D either through sunlight or by taking 5,000 to 10,000 units a day, to exercise for 30 minutes three to five times per week, to meditate for 30 minutes daily, to work with your doctor and take medication if it's necessary and right for you and prevention for your family members. All of the elements we've talked about are effective in their own right but they work best when they're put together.” Related Links: The Overcoming MS Program: Where to start: New to OMS? | Overcoming MS The Overcoming MS Program: Multiple Sclerosis (MS) Recovery Program - UK, USA & Australia | Overcoming MS Read the Overcoming MS books: Books by Overcoming Multiple Sclerosis | Overcoming MS Recipes, Exercise classes, meditation sessions and more: Multiple Sclerosis Books & Resources | Overcoming MS Other useful links: Film: The Connection MSGym with Trevor Wicken MSing Link with Gretchen Hawley Book: Atomic Habits by James Clear Don't miss out: Subscribe to this podcast and never miss an episode.

A 9-year-old North Carolina boy was reportedly forced to live locked in a dog cage for the last six months. The boy's father, stepmother, and the stepmother's aunt were arrested on child abuse and related charges. The trio is facing a total of 19 felony child abuse indictments. Deputies responded to the family home on October 19 after receiving an anonymous 911 call regarding possible child abuse. The caller reportedly told police that her husband had previously taken food to the victim. Upon arrival, deputies noticed the boy inside a locked dog kennel wearing no shirt, jeans, and no shoes, even though temperatures were below freezing and frost was on the ground. Deputies found the stepmother inside a bedroom with a 4-year-old under the bed and the 8-month-old still in her arms. She claimed she didn't know the combination for the cage lock, forcing EMS and deputies to break the cage open. The 9-year-old was taken to the Brenner's Children's Hospital in Winston-Salem, police said, where he received a medical checkup and was released the same day.

One of the most common questions amongst labor doulas surrounds due dates. Should I take two clients due on the same date? What is the optimal spacing between clients? Is it better to take clients due further apart or closer together? The truth is, there's no straightforward answer to these common questions. Experience tells us that EDD is just a number on a calendar and that clients may deliver weeks before or after their given date. One thing is for certain, working with a backup doula is essential. Join us as we discuss the many factors to consider surrounding the due date dilemma.

For some, the terrible fate of our babies death was inevitable. For many others, our tragedies avoidable. Medical science and our understanding of the human body has come on leaps and bounds; with research at the very core of how we improve patient care and provide the right advice throughout a pregnancy. However, despite an advancement in research there is still so much unknown about why and how our babies die. In this week's episode Matt & Liam talk to Professor Alex Heazell, Senior Clinical Lecturer in Obstetrics and Director of Tommy's Stillbirth Research Centre - the Rainbow Clinic - at St Mary's Hospital in Manchester, UK. The Rainbow Clinic provides specialist care for women who have suffered a previous stillbirth or neonatal death with the aim of ensuring that it doesn't happen again in future pregnancies. This episode explores what the latest developments in baby loss research are; whether all losses are preventable; what each of us can do to support the cause; and delves a little into Prof Heazell's background asking the question how does someone get into the world of saving babies' lives.

Becoming a doula means that you are starting a business. Many doulas overlook this first step. Or this information is not a big part of their doula training. Understanding the ins and outs of starting a business is important. Creating a legal business structure, setting up business accounts for banking, taking payments, and offering services are critical first steps. These steps not only protect your business but can protect your personal assets as well. Running a business means that you need to manage many aspects of your doula business daily. Working with clients is a part of what you will do as you work in your business. But it won't be the largest part of what you do, at least in the beginning. Doulas who want to make a living at this work will need to tend to their business just as diligently as they tend to their clients. Join us as we discuss the basics of running a doula business.

It's been 12 days since toddler Quinton Simon has been seen. Now the Chatham County Police Department says they believe the 20-month-old is likely dead. According to the boy's mother, Leilani Simon, her boyfriend last saw the tot at about 6 a.m. on October 5 as he left for work. Later, when she woke up, Simon couldn't find Quinton. A 911 call was made shortly after 9:30 a.m. Simon told the dispatcher she found the door open and Quinton was gone. An extensive search was launched, including search warrants executed at the family home. Leilani Simon is considered the primary suspect, although no formal charges have been filed and no arrests have been made. Joining Nancy Grace Today: John W.
