  • Kansas mom dies days after giving birth to triplets

    A Kansas mom of five who had just given birth to triplets died minutes after she arrived home from the hospital. Casi Rott, 36, was briefly reunited with her two older daughters at the family’s rural farm — which she hadn’t seen in months because she stayed with family closer to the hospital toward the end of her high-risk pregnancy — on Feb. 8. “That day was the happiest I’d ever seen her,” her husband, Joey, told the Kansas City Star of the reunion. But just after she walked through the door, she started having severe chest pains, brought on...

    Forty-two of the 827 seniors preparing to graduate next week are twins or triplets, and that makes the Class of 2012 a possible Guinness world record holder for the most multiple-birth students in a graduating class. Martin's 18 sets of twins and two sets of triplets top the current record holders, a 2011 class in Iowa with 14 sets of twins and three sets of triplets.

    WROCLAW, Poland, March 13, 2012 ( - A Polish woman endured 75 days of labor lying in a nearly upside down position to save the lives of her two premature babies after the first of three triplets was born prematurely and died. Joanna Krzysztonek was pregnant with triplets when she went into labour at 21 weeks. Her first baby was born prematurely and did not survive. Dr. Mariusz Zimmer, head of the Wroclaw obstetrics and neo-natal clinic where Krzysztonek gave birth, intervened with medication to stop contractions and told the expectant mother that the babies might be saved if she...
  • (Vanity) Two Polls That Gallup&Razz Need To Take Now,Perry/Rubio & Perry/Romney VS Obama/Biden.

    Never mind the Romney&Perry vs Obama Polls, what we really need to see are polls with either ticket VS Obama.It seems pretty safe to assume that it's down to Perry&Romney.And in the end it may be a "Perry/Romney/Rubio(and another VP Candidate)"scenerio. Lets hope Rasmussem and Gallup starts taking these polls soon. Especially a Perry/Rubio vs Obama Poll. That would likely be a 55/45 split. Just like the Reagan/Carter landslide.

    "The concept of 'one for all and all for one' can get pretty absurd," the late Jerusalem Post staffer and columnist Sam Orbaum wrote about his identical triplet daughters 14 years ago. Orbaum, who passed away in 2002 at the age of 46, went on in the column, entitled "The threeness of it all," to describe life as a father of identical triplets. Not only did he sometimes mix them up, Orbaum wrote in his well-known wry, comic style, but he was also constantly impressed by their tight bond - when for example they stood up for one another in...

    BUENOS AIRES (Reuters) - Three rare white tiger cubs delighted visitors at the Buenos Aires zoo on Thursday, tumbling in the grass of their enclosure in their first public appearance since being born late last year. Zookeepers said the birth of the blue-eyed Bengal tiger triplets represented an important contribution to saving the animals from extinction. "There are only about 250, not even 300, animals of this variety in captivity, so every birth in the Buenos Aires zoo contributes to saving this type of Bengal tiger," chief veterinarian Miguel Rivolta told Reuters Television. Rivolta said the zoo's breeding record showed...

    Before the lobbying scandal hit Washington and GOP lobbyist Jack Abramoff was still one of the town’s most influential powerbrokers, it may have seemed like a normal, even run-of-the mill personal Washington event. Abramoff, who recently pleaded guilty to fraud, bribery and tax evasion, helped host a baby shower for Rep. Dana Rohrabacher (R-Calif.) and his wife in December 2003. The Rohrabachers were expecting triplets and feeling the pinch of the prevailing congressional salary of $154,700 at the time while maintaining homes in D.C. and the lawmaker’s pricey Southern California coastal district. Abramoff’s and his wife’s names appeared on the...

    New York Times unwittingly gives the pro-life movement new life. So now we know the lowest level of feminist hell, and there, in the white-hot center, stands the Costco. This was a surprise to everyone who believed Wal-Mart to be the apex of retail evil, but villains are easily replaced and we have a new one in Costco, thanks to the musings of Amy Richards in the New York Times Magazine. Richards, of course, is the freelance writer who unwittingly deflated the "pro-choice" movement Sunday with her cheerful account of how she decided, upon hearing she was pregnant with triplets,...

    July 18, 2004 LIVES When One Is Enough By AMY RICHARDS as told to AMY BARRETT I grew up in a working-class family in Pennsylvania not knowing my father. I have never missed not having him. I firmly believe that, but for much of my life I felt that what I probably would have gained was economic security and with that societal security. Growing up with a single mother, I was always buying into the myth that I was going to be seduced in the back of a pickup truck and become pregnant when I was 16. I had friends...

    RARE MOOSE TRIPLETS: Moose are common in Norway, but spotting a female with triplets is nothing short of a sensation. Photographer Trond Thorvaldsen spent nearly two weeks wandering in a forest north of Fredrikstad and was rewarded with these rare shots. Only 20 percent of moose mothers give birth to twins, according to retired professor Knut Solbraa, while triplets account for one in 100 births. FOLLOW THE LEADER: There's no doubt who's boss in this family, with moose calves dependent on their mothers during their first year of life. Here, they obediently follow their mama on a warm summer evening....

    If you thought King Herod was bad in slaughtering the Holy Innocents, wait till you hear what Kim Il Jong has been up to lately. Australia’s Herald Sun is reporting that Kim Il Jong is seizing all triplets and placing them in orphanages, because he believes that a triplet is destined to overthrow his regime. North Korea’s official reason for the policy is to help impoverished parents care for their children. "Triplets are supplied by the state free of charge with clothing, bedding, a one-year supply of dairy products and a pre-school subsidy, and special medical workers take charge of...

    Let's say Kim Jong-il is a thousand times crazier than Micheal Jackson and that he's got nukes. That, in a nutshell, is what the Bush doctrine is all about, the fact that we won't be around for long if we just let things roll along until the craziest people on the planet get their hands on weapons that can level Manhattan in a minute. I bring this up because there's a photo on my desk from Associated Press that shows nine babies all lined up in a row on the floor, smack up against each other. A single blanket is...
  • NKorea's 'lucky' triplets seized - ALL triplets in North Korea are being forcibly removed

    03/29/2003 5:11:29 PM PST · by InvisibleChurch · 16 replies · 173+ views
    ALL triplets in North Korea are being forcibly removed from parents after their birth and dumped in bleak orphanages. The policy is carried out on the orders of Stalinist dictator Kim Jong-il, who has an irrational belief that a triplet could one day topple his regime. The number three is thought to be auspicious in North Korea and triplets are revered. It is believed they are likely to rise to positions of power, which accounts for Kim's insistence that they are all raised in state-run orphanages, where their development can be controlled. Officially, the policy was introduced to help poverty-stricken...
