    Facebook JACKSON COUNTY, Ga. - Three women have been charged after they made a Snapchat video in a room with a dying woman and titled it "The End," police say.

The three woman worked at the Bentley Senior Living Facility in Jefferson, police said....

    Austin, TX, May 03, 2018 --(, a national dog bite victims' group dedicated to reducing serious dog attacks, releases a multi-year U.S. dog bite fatality report.

    Canadians will soon be able to order marijuana through the mail as part of the nation’s new legalization of recreational pot. Lawmakers in the country passed the Cannabis Act earlier this week, setting the country up to regulate the market in the coming months. Prime Minister Justin Trudeau announced Wednesday that legalization will begin on Oct. 17. The country is the second to legalize the substance nationwide, after Uruguay. The federal minimum age for marijuana use in Canada will be 18, but some provinces are setting their own minimum age at 19, which is the drinking age in most areas....

    Crissy Brownstein Naticchia told The Mighty that her husband of 23 years was diagnosed with Babesia, a tick-born illness that quickly attacks the red blood cells. His diagnosis came after the 50-year-old had come down with an intense fever that eventually landed him in the Intensive Care Unit. However, because it took six days for her husband to get the correct diagnosis, he never recovered. Naticchia's husband unexpectedly passed away the day after his diagnosis. According to Fox 2, scientists have recently discovered an exotic tick species in the United States, specifically in Hunterdon County, New Jersey. It is not...

    MISHAWAKA — A motorcyclist killed in a crash while eluding police on May 26 had far outrun an officer, who won’t face criminal charges in the incident, St. Joseph County Prosecutor Ken Cotter announced Monday. When he crashed the motorcycle on Jefferson Boulevard near Wyland’s Marine and a Village Pantry, John M. Williams, 46, was so far ahead of Mishawaka police Patrolman Andrew Sark, about a quarter-mile, that the crash cannot be seen on the dashcam video. “After speaking with witnesses and reviewing the evidence, (the St. Joseph County Fatal Crash Team) determined that the motorcycle traveled at high rates...

    ARDMORE, Oklahoma––Killed by a pit bull and a pack of pit mixes on the evening of May 10, 2018, Tracy Janine Garcia, 52, had by May 16, 2018 passed into legend via “hot-dogging” and flagrantly inaccurate tabloid headlines as the purported victim of an attack by dachshunds. Though the circumstances of the fatal attack near Ardmore, in rural Carter County, Oklahoma, are still unclear, Garcia was mauled outside her home by seven allegedly neglected and mostly pit dogs belonging to an unidentified neighbor, with little trace of any dachshund ancestry evident among them.

    GULFPORT, MS (WLOX) - The woman who owns two pit bulls that attacked and killed a 75-year-old woman Wednesday in Gulfport has been arrested. Police say Emily Craft, 32, was arrested on a warrant for misdemeanor dog-at-large and vicious animal charges. Police say those charges stem from a July 2017 incident where Craft's two pit bulls entered someone else's yard and attacked that person's golden retriever. Officers were at the home on Deidra Court investigating the death of a 75-year old woman who was attacked by the same two pit bulls just before 8 a.m. Wednesday. The victim has not...

    My friend is dying in front of my eyes and I can do nothing but say a few words now and then. He exhibits no sign of awareness or understanding. I have been told that hearing is the last sense to go as the body shuts down. I have been praying for him for years. He has been an agnostic for 80 years. When I told him I would be praying for him when this started in January, He said he could use all the help he could get. I have known Don for about 48 years. I met...

    Evidence for the largest single incident of mass child sacrifice in the Americas— and likely in world history—has been discovered on Peru's northern coast, archaeologists tell National Geographic. More than 140 children and 200 young llamas appear to have been ritually sacrificed in an event that took place some 550 years ago on a wind-swept bluff overlooking the Pacific Ocean, in the shadow of what was then the sprawling capital of the Chimú Empire. Scientific investigations by the international, interdisciplinary team, led by Gabriel Prieto of the Universidad Nacional de Trujillo and John Verano of Tulane University, are ongoing. The...

    In an ominous sign for patient safety, 71% of reusable medical scopes deemed ready for use on patients tested positive for bacteria at three major U.S. hospitals, according to a new study. The paper, published recently in the American Journal of Infection Control, underscores the infection risk posed by a commonly used endoscopes. It signals a lack of progress by manufacturers, hospitals and regulators in reducing contamination despite numerous reports of superbug outbreaks and patient deaths, experts say. "These results are pretty scary," said Janet Haas, president of the Association for Professionals in Infection Control and Epidemiology. "These are very...

    Our Most Primal Fear and the Source of Our Bondage Msgr. Charles Pope • April 17, 2018 • Let’s ponder a significant yet often overlooked text from Hebrews, which describes our most basic and primal fear. Our inordinate fear of what people think of us is rooted in an even deeper fear, one which is at the very core of our being. The Hebrews text both names it and describes it as being the source of our bondage. In order to unlock the secret of the text, I want to suggest to you an interpretation that will allow its...

    First Lady Melania Trump visited the “Prescribed to Death” memorial this week for Americans who have died in the opioid crisis. Mrs. Trump kept her ensemble colorful in a pale pink Max Mara coat, similar to a Jil Sander coat she has previously worn, and a yellow-green dress that perfectly matched a pair of yellow-green, suede Christian Louboutins. The chilly Spring has kept Mrs. Trump in a series of suits, coats, and pants, though she has celebrated the season in bright colors. Mrs. Trump wore a similar color palette last month in a coral Emilio Pucci suit and yellow sweater....

    Pondering the Great Reversal Announced in Scripture Msgr. Charles Pope • April 15, 2018 • One of the strong traditions of Scripture is of the great reversal that will one day come for many. I have often been sobered by it when I consider how blessed I have been in this life. I have also been consoled by it when I struggle to understand why some people in this world seem to suffer so much more that I do, or others do.Life seems a very uneven proposition if we only look at this side of the equation.
