    According to the State of California, JahiMcMath has been dead since December 9, 2013, when she went into cardiac arrest after catastrophic side effects from throat surgery. Oakland Children’s Hospital doctors insisted she was brain dead, that is, she had experienced total brain failure. Under California law, brain death is dead. When the doctors stated their intention to remove the life support from Jahi, her mother sued. A brouhaha ensued. A judge appointed an independent physician from Stanford to examine the girl, and he too found she was dead. The judge declared her dead and the state of California issued...

    Friend: Andy Kaufman is still alive Could faking his own death be Andy Kaufman's biggest joke yet? In 1980, legendary comedian Andy Kaufman and his writing partner, Bob Zmuda, wrote a script for a film called “The Tony Clifton Story,” based on a character of Kaufman’s. On Page 124, there is a block of dialogue intended for Kaufman to speak as himself, informing viewers of Clifton’s demise. Among the lines: “On June 12, 1980 . . . Tony Clifton, at the age of 45, died of cancer at Cedars-Sinai Hospital in Hollywood, California.” Four years later, at age 35, Kaufman himself would,...

    PHILADELPHIA, April 23, 2013 ( – Kermit Gosnell's defense attorney argued today that it was “ludicrous” for an abortion clinic worker to believe a baby was alive simply because she saw it moving. Attorney Jack McMahon told the court Gosnell's former employee saw only a baby's final, involuntary movements, not any signs of life. “If we are going in this room to say a baby is born alive, because it moves one time without any other movement, that is ludicrous,” McMahon said. “This wasn’t a baby moving!” Lynda Williams said Gosnell told her the same thing – that the breathing...

    The funeral of a 28 year-old waiter in southern Egypt turned into a celebration when he woke up after being declared dead. Hospital officials had pronounced dead Hamdi Hafez al-Nubi, who came from the village of Naga al-Simman in the southern province of Luxor, after he suffered a heart attack while working. His family says grieving relatives took him home and, according to Islamic tradition, washed his body and prepared him for burial Friday evening. A doctor sent to sign the death certificate found it strange that his body was warm. At closer observation she discovered he was still alive.

Shalit was 19 when he was captured on June 25, 2006 by Hamas terrorists, only a few months after he began his three-year compulsory IDF service. He was serving at the time on Israel’s border with Gaza, when several terrorists tunneled under the border, killed two soldiers, and abducted Shalit into Gaza. His whereabouts have been unknown ever since. “Because no sign of life has been had from Shalit...

    A week ago, the world watched Chilean miners resurface one by one from their hellacious entrapment. But few people understood the true measure of triumph over death as Nando Parrado did. You've probably heard of him, even if you don't recognize his name. On Friday, Oct. 13, 1972 – 38 years ago to the day from when the first Chilean miner was rescued – a charter plane carrying Parrado, his mother, his younger sister and his rugby teammates from Uruguay slammed into the middle of the Andes Mountains east of Chile.

    It is a decision no parent ever wants to make. But as the Rudd family watched their 43-year-old son lying paralysed and comatose on a life support machine, they came to a terrible conclusion. Recalling a conversation where Richard told them he wouldn't want to be trapped in a useless body, his relatives agreed it was time to let him go. Yet even as the Rudd family mentally prepared to say goodbye, his doctor made a startling discovery. Despite his devastating spinal injuries, Richard Rudd was still able to blink his eyes in response to simple questions.

    Many, if not most Christians think or believe that the saints of both the Old and New Testaments are alive in some place between death and resurrection. But is that what Jesus and His apostles taught? Let’s find out! In Matthew 22:31–32 we read of Jesus saying: “But about the resurrection of the dead, have you not read what God said to you, ‘I am the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob?’ (Ex. 3:6) He is not the God of the dead but of the living.” Luke records Jesus’ response this way: “But in...

Other contenders are CBS anchor Katie Couric, CNN "video wall guy" John King and Joy Behar, who is launching her own interview show on CNN's Headline News.

Jackson's death at age 50 leaves a multitude of questions about a financial empire that included his own music, as well a 50 percent stake in...

The cartoon is similar to the kind that was used during the World Wars to portray the enemy as woman-raping and/or baby-killing monsters, e.g. Imperial Germany as a fanged gorilla carrying a half-naked woman over his shoulder. In politics, of course, such a cartoon must convey the absolute truth if it is not to be written off...

    Cheaper than mink or sable - fur coats made from dogs that were skinned alive By Katy Duke and Elizabeth Day (Filed: 18/12/2005) It looks like the must-have item in every glamorous woman's winter wardrobe: a sleek, black fur coat dripping with opulence.

    REDMOND, Wash. - A professional skiing photographer attempting to document the harsh Argentine terrain where plane crash survivors once resorted to cannibalism died in a 4,500-foot fall, his family said. Carl Warren Skoog, 46, fell from the remote southern face of 22,210-foot Mount Mercedario in the Andes on Oct. 17 while working with a longtime ski partner, Rene Crawshaw. "It wasn't extremely dangerous. He just fell somehow, and he just couldn't get his ice pick in to stop him," said Crawshaw, who needed more than a day to trek out of the remote area to get aid. The pair had...

    SAQLAWIYAH, Iraq (August 17, 2005) -- Although hundreds of insurgents were killed during last year’s offensive in Fallujah, those who survived fled the ruined city to blend back into the Iraqi civilian populace living in the surrounding communities. Nine months later, the ongoing task of searching for these insurgents falls to young men like Marietta, Ga. native Clinton Fort. Currently a 20-year-old lance corporal, this infantryman assists 1st Battalion, 6th Marine Regiment and Iraqi Security Forces in rebuilding the city’s infrastructure and keeping its streets safe. Since mid-April, Fort’s company and ISF personnel have operated from a makeshift base inside...

    What are we to make of what has happened in the days since John Paul II died? The news outlets of American television have spent uncounted hours on the deceased leader of the Catholic Church. It explains why so many of us never quite throw our televisions onto the sidewalk. It is because when moments that matter arrive, they can do this. This is the medium's long-form potential--rarely used out of belief that the viewers' mosquito-sized attention span makes deep treatment of any subject verboten. Notwithstanding some spitballs, the coverage of the 263rd pope since Peter has been almost universally...
