Teen Heart Transplant Recipient Dies During Police Chase

stokesROSWELL, Georgia – The driver of a car who was killed Tuesday after crashing into a light pole during a police chase has been identified as Anthony Stokes, whose pleas for a heart transplant attracted national attention two years ago, reports WSB-TV.

Stokes was denied a transplant in 2013 after doctors determined he was unlikely to follow their advice and take medications regularly.

After an intense public relations campaign by his family, the hospital reversed its decision and placed Stokes on top of the transplant list.

Stokes, then 15, was suffering from an enlarged heart when he got the new organ.

Roswell Police say Stokes stole a car from Perimeter Mall, then shot at an elderly woman during a robbery attempt.  More

Mystery of strange radio bursts from space

Posted By Staff

Date: April 1st, 2015

Category: Nutty News

fastMysterious radio wave flashes from far outside the galaxy are proving tough for astronomers to explain.

Bursts of radio waves flashing across the sky seem to follow a mathematical pattern. If the pattern is real, either some strange celestial physics is going on, or the bursts are artificial, produced by human – or alien – technology.

Telescopes have been picking up so-called fast radio bursts (FRBs) since 2001. They last just a few milliseconds and erupt with about as much energy as the sun releases in a month.

No one knows what causes them, but the brevity of the bursts means their source has to be small – hundreds of kilometres across at most – so they can’t be from ordinary stars. And they seem to come from far outside the galaxy.  More

fisherNew York – Seven months ago, Latisha Fisher’s troubled life seemed to have gotten back on track. It had been a long climb to stability since September 2011, when Fisher, a diagnosed paranoid schizophrenic, attacked an acquaintance with a steak knife, slashing the woman’s head, arm and ear.

Last September, officials proclaimed her a “poster child” for a program offering rehabilitation to mental-health patients instead of prison time, court documents show, after she enrolled in community college and repeatedly tested clean for illegal drugs.

She said to distraught restaurant employees that the devil had told her to smother him, authorities said.  More

Ashley SiesLEXINGTON, Kentucky – Police in Kentucky said a woman who was being strangled with a bra fended off her attacker by striking her in the head with a ceramic chicken.

Patricia Leece, 61, of Lexington, said she opened her door early Monday because she thought the banging and shouting was her granddaughter, but she instead found stranger Ashley Sies (picture), 31.

The homeowner told police Sies pushed her way into the house and wrapped a bra around Leece’s neck.

“She choked me down and we fought for a good 15 to 20 minutes. Finally I saw one of my (ceramic) chickens on the floor so I picked it up and started bashing her on the head with it,” Leece told WKYT-TV.  More

Mayo Clinic unravels a mystery disease for Minnesota lawyer

Posted By Staff

Date: April 1st, 2015

Category: Nutty News

mayoGreg Widseth didn’t know what hit him. The lawyer felt fine as he coached his son’s ninth-grade basketball workout last March. He remembers smiling at a young woman as he left the building.

Now Widseth, who once had a photographic memory, is struggling to reconstruct the events that put him in the hospital and led his wife, a former emergency room nurse, to seek help from the Mayo Clinic.

Specialists at Mayo determined that Widseth, 47, was hit by a rare disease that prompted his immune system to attack his brain cells, resulting in as many as 60 seizures a day.

Special blood and spinal fluid tests developed by Mayo Medical Laboratories confirmed that Widseth had antibodies known to target certain brain cells. That prompted a round of immunosuppressant drugs that had him feeling nearly normal in just four days.  More

pigsRIO RANCHO, New Mexico – There’s one group of young eaters who like Michelle Obama’s school lunch program: pigs.

New Mexico’s Galloping Grace Youth Ranch is accepting fruits and vegetables thrown away by students at several elementary schools in the Rio Rancho area and collects some five tons per week.

“It’s really whatever they don’t eat coming off of their trays, so when they get up to the trash cans they will scrape it into one of our buckets that we pick up on a daily basis,” ranch CEO Max Wade tells KRQE.

Speaking of the pigs, goats and chickens gobbling up the students’ castaways, Wade says, “If you think about it, it’s a fresh salad bar every day. Fruits and vegetables and they love it.”  More

Investigators said the robbers, described as a group of three or four men, then waited for motorists to get out of their cars to move the barrels. The men assaulted the victims and robbed them, police said.  More

Rev. Jeremiah Wright’s Daughter Sent to Prison

wrightIllinois – Jeri L. Wright, the daughter of President Barack Obama’s controversial former pastor, was headed to jail Monday after a judge revoked a deal that allowed her to remain free as she awaits sentencing on a money-laundering conviction.

U.S. District Judge Sue E. Myerscough ruled there was probable cause to believe Wright committed a separate theft while on bail, thereby violating terms of her supervised release, according to Sharon Paul, a spokeswoman for the U.S. attorney’s office in the Central District of Illinois.

The judge ordered Wright, who appeared in court in Springfield, to be taken into custody by U.S. marshals.

Last March, Jeri Wright was found guilty of money-laundering, lying to federal investigators and lying to a grand jury over her role in a state grant-fraud scheme orchestrated by one of her childhood friends, former Country Club Hills Police Chief Regina Evans.  More

bagelsEAST LANSING – More than a dozen Michigan State University students are facing charges over celebrations in the streets of East Lansing after the team’s Sweet Sixteen win on Friday and an Elite Eight victory on Sunday.

Thirteen MSU students were charged with disorderly conduct after the two NCAA-related street celebrations.

Lt. Steve Gonzales said that some were charged for being too close to a fire and others for tossing objects — mainly bagels — into the crowd.

“What we did see that caused us some concern is as soon as everybody started throwing those bagels up in the air and it continued for quite a bit of time, the intensity and the hype of the crowd really began to increase,” Gonzales said. “In our experience, what we’ve seen when a crowd behaves like that, is that it certainly leads to bigger problems.”  More

garbageLANSING – A food service vendor for Michigan’s correction system is in trouble once again. This time, Aramark is accused of serving inmates garbage — literally.

A spokesman for the state Department of Corrections is confirming reports that prisoners at the Saginaw Correctional Facility were served some food last October that had been thrown in the trash.

The meals in question were meatballs “or some sort of meat products,” spokesperson Chris Gautz told the Saginaw News.

Apparently, an Aramark employee had thrown the food away before realizing more inmates still hadn’t been served. The employee, who has since been fired, then retrieved the food “rinsed them off, reheated them in the oven and instructed the inmates to serve them.”  More

Strange Facts: Alien Hand Syndrome (AHS)

Posted By Staff

Date: March 31st, 2015

Category: Nutty News

alienAlien hand syndrome (AHS) is a rare neurological disorder that causes hand movement without the person being aware of what is happening or having control over the action.

The afflicted person may sometimes reach for objects and manipulate them without wanting to do so, even to the point of having to use the healthy hand to restrain the alien hand.

Alien hand syndrome is best documented in cases where a person has had the two hemispheres of their brain surgically separated, a procedure sometimes used to relieve the symptoms of extreme cases of epilepsy.

It also occurs in some cases after brain surgery, stroke, infection, tumor, aneurysm and specific degenerative brain conditions such as Alzheimer’s disease.    Continued at Nutty Facts

The explosions started after a truck crashed into a utility pole, causing a surge around 8:30 a.m. on Monday morning.

Deadly NYC explosion caused by gas thieves

Posted By Staff

Category: Nutty News

gasNEW YORK – It was a run-of-the-mill complaint — a smell of gas — with a troubling explanation: Someone had improperly tapped into a Manhattan building’s gas line, and it was leaking.

The issue was quickly resolved. But seven months later, authorities suspect another round of gas-pipe tampering caused a fiery explosion at the same building, killing two people, injuring nearly two dozen and leveling three buildings in all.

While officials caution that they aren’t certain of the cause of last week’s blast in New York’s East Village, it is highlighting a long-known problem with potentially deadly consequences: untrained schemers rigging up pipes to save money by siphoning natural gas.

“It’s a regular, regular problem,” said industry expert Mark McDonald of Boston-based NatGas Consulting. “Just as you can imagine theft in a Wal-Mart, no different — but it’s much more dangerous.”  More

Their findings will be presented at a national microbiology conference.

carNew York – Two dumb-and-dumber teens were busted with a gun in Brooklyn after they hopped into a vehicle to make their getaway — and it turned out to be an unmarked cop car, police sources said Monday.

The police vehicle had been dispatched to the East Flatbush area around 12:30 a.m. Sunday after the department’s new ShotSpotter system indicated that six bullets had just been fired around 980 Linden Blvd., sources said.

The teens, both 15, weren’t the ones who fired that gun, sources said. But one of them had a .38-caliber handgun on them, sources said.

And when they saw arriving Officers Joel Crooms and Dalsh Veve, who were in plainclothes and out of their car, the teens ran to the vehicle on nearby Church Avenue to try to flee — thinking it was a livery cab, sources said.  More

SisaEgypt – Sisa Abu Daooh is Egypt’s matriarch of the moment, after being named by officials in her home town of Luxor as the city’s most supportive mother. Which may come as a surprise: for she is Luxor’s “best mum” by virtue of having worked and dressed for more than 40 years as a man.

Abu Daooh, 65, met Egypt’s president, Abdel Fatah al-Sisi, on Sunday to receive an award. She said she was not going to stop living as a man.

“I have decided to die in these clothes. I’ve got used to it. It’s my whole life and I can’t leave it now.”

It was a life she began in the 1970s when her husband died. She was six months pregnant with their first child. These days, at least one in seven Egyptian breadwinners is a woman, but 40 years ago, her conservative family did not consider it appropriate for her to work.  More
