    A patient in a Tokyo hospital has been left with serious burns after she passed wind during an operation that ignited the laser a surgeon was using during the procedure. The woman, in her 30s, was undergoing surgery at the Tokyo Medical University Hospital which involved a laser being applied to her cervix and lower part of her uterus. However, as the surgeon carried out the procedure, the patient passed wind as the laser was being used. It then caused the gas to ignite, sparking a fire, which set her hospital gown and legs ablaze. She suffered serious burns but...

    One member of a US special operations team was killed during an operation to rescue hostages held by Islamic State militants in northern Iraq, the first American killed in ground combat with the militant group, US officials said on Thursday. Hostages were successfully rescued during the operation, a US official told Reuters. CNN said about 70 Kurdish hostages were freed. A US official confirmed to Reuters that one American was killed. No further information was available on the mission, which local residents and a Kurdish military commander said was carried out in the Hawija area in northern Iraq. One member...
  • Why Trump is the New Eisenhower on Immigration (Jeffrey Lord)

    The issue? Illegal immigration. The answer? The Republican candidate had an answer. If he were elected president, the illegals swarming into the United States from Mexico would have to go. No, the Republican candidate was not Donald Trump. The candidate in question was Dwight D. Eisenhower. And on Election Day of 1952, Ike was elected the nation’s 34th president in a landslide. On June 17, 1954, using what today would be considered a deeply politically incorrect term, “Operation Wetback” began. Eisenhower had appointed a West Point classmate and veteran of the 10st Airborn, General Joseph “Jumpin’ Joe” Swing to head...

    Democratic Gov. Dannel P. Malloy’s campaign will go to court Tuesday to ask a judge to extend voting hours in Hartford to accommodate voters who may have been turned away from the polls this morning. Some polling places in Hartford opened at 6 a.m. without a voter list. State Rep. Matt Ritter, D-Hartford, said that he was told by Garey E. Coleman, the Democratic Deputy registrar of voters, that the printer the registrars’ office uses to print its voter lists failed Monday night and there was no backup available. It’s not clear at the moment how long it takes to...

    Fifty years ago, John Spinello, a student at the University of Illinois, invented the board game 'Operation' which lets kids pretend to be surgeons. Now at the age of 77, Spinello can't afford his own real-life operation, reports Huffington Post. The oral surgery that he needs will cost him $25,000—a burdensome bill after selling the rights to his 'Operation' game to Milton Bradley for just $500.
  • Finally, a Name for ISIS Strikes: Operation Inherent Resolve

    New York Times ^ | 10/16/2014
    WASHINGTON — The Defense Department has come up with a name for the American military strikes against the Islamic State: Operation Inherent Resolve. For two months, Rear Adm. John Kirby, the Pentagon’s press secretary, has been batting down queries from reporters about the refusal to name the operation. After all, the reasoning went, the military loves naming operations: Desert Shield (Kuwait); Desert Storm (Iraq, the first time); Iraqi Freedom (Iraq, the second time). So at long last, there is now a name for Iraq (the third time) and Syria, announced on Wednesday by the United States Central Command in a...

    Former military intelligence chief Amos Yadlin rejected criticism over a lack of deterrence against Hamas on Saturday, insisting that the only reason rockets have not reached Be'er Sheva and Tel Aviv is due to the threat of IAF retaliation. "It is not true that there is no deterrence," Yadlin stated. "Hamas can fire hundreds of rockets at Tel Aviv and Beersheba, and does not actually do so." Despite this, Yadlin admitted that another operation in Gaza is likely on the horizon. "I have no doubt we are looking at another round with Hamas," admitted Yadlin. "It will be very difficult."...

In the letter, Issa and Jordan stated, "[t]he [House Oversight and Government Reform] Committee is concerned that both the goal and mechanisms of Operation Choke Point may constitute a serious mismanagement and abuse of the Department´s FIRREA [Financial Institution Reform and Recovery Act of 1989] authority."

    Today started like any other day for me: take the “terrorist princess” outside, get a cup of coffee, and sit down to peruse the news while checking email. After seeing a news post about the Obama administration using two executive orders that will determine who in this country will or will not be allowed to purchase guns, I became infuriated and decided to turn to my email. Yesterday, I had received a tag about an interesting event scheduled for May 16, 2014; however, I had a hard time trying to fathom it so I began my research. Little did I...

    A high-profile case of a Belgian transsexual who chose to be killed by medical euthanasia after a sex-change operation turned him into a "monster" has highlighted the soaring number of people in the region electing to die this way – and has raised fresh questions over the controversial practice. Nathan Verhelst, born Nancy, gave an interview to a local newspaper hours before his death this week citing his "unbearable psychological suffering" – rather than a terminal or degenerative physical illness – as his reason for dying voluntarily. "When I looked in the mirror, I was disgusted with myself. My new...

    President Obama will carry out military action against Syria even if Congress votes against it, a senior State Department official tells Fox News’ Chief Washington Correspondent James Rosen. Rosen’s notes concerning the White House’s reported intentions regarding the Syrian crisis were posted on Fox News colleague Greta Van Susteren’s Gretawire site late Saturday afternoon. Rosen reports that “the president’s decision to seek a congressional debate and vote was a surprise to most if not all of” his national security team members. The state department official who communicated with Rosen added that Obama’s move to seek congressional approval “did not supplant...

    Several congressmen sent another letter to the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (ATF) Wednesday, months after first requesting information about a failed undercover operation with similarities to Operation Fast and Furious. “Not only have you yet to provide us with any information or documents about this operation, but, months after ATF shut down the operation, you have refused to respond at all,” the letter states. House Oversight Committee chairman Darrell Issa (R., Calif.), Senate Judiciary Committee ranking member Charles Grassley (R., Iowa), Rep. Robert Goodlatte (R., Va.), and Rep. Jim Sensenbrenner (R., Wis.) signed the letter. Operation Fearless,...

    The incident, which took place at the Lidköping hospital, has prompted stinging criticism from Sweden's National Board of Health and Welfare (Socialstyrelsen). The 72-year-old went under anesthetic at 10.45am on the day of the operation, which took place in January 2011. At noon sharp, the head anesthetist left the operating room to go for lunch. Fifteen minutes later, the head nurse anesthetist also left the patient and went for lunch. No other anesthetist was called in to take over responsibility for the doctor who was on his lunch break. And while another nurse was brought in to cover for the...

    Counter-arguments to charges by Obama administration supporters that Fast and Furious “gunwalking” began in the Bush-era Operation Wide Receiver program have been gaining wider attention over the past few days, with numerous tips and inquiries being sent by readers to Gun Rights Examiner for comment. Just as with many of the wrong assumptions being promulgated by administration supporters, there are some misconceptions being promoted by its detractors that require clarification if the goal is to understand what happened, as opposed to merely spreading a “perception becomes reality” meme. Among these misconceptions being repeated: that no Wide Receiver guns “walked” to...
