    Sorrowful news from brother | October 6, 2017 | self-
    Our family received shocking news. Our niece- a beautiful 13YO identical twin girl- Natalia, has decided that she wants to be a BOY. However, her family is celebrating the news. Natalia is now to be called 'Nace' and she dresses as a boy. We have been warned (threatened) we must use the pronouns--him or he. And it's so much worse because she has an identical lovely twin sister, Olivia. Olivia is a very feminine, modestly dressed, normal appearing happy-go lucky, girly-girl. Natalie and Olivia are naturally life-long best friends. This is being culturally normalized and may strike a family near...

    A set of twins are celebrating another milestone birthday this week. Ira Spieker and Ida Spieker Melhmann turn 101 years-old on September 4. Last year, the Iowa-born twins marked their centennial with a massive celebration amongst family in their home state. “As far as we know they are the oldest living brother-sister twins in the United States, which is mind boggling. It’s like, there has to be another brother-sister twin but we couldn’t find it,” Ira’s son Steve Spieker told 24 Hour News 8. According to Grand Rapids affiliate WOOD, Ira ended up in the ICU last month with a...

    The proud parents of twin boys in New York found out why their toddlers seemed like they hadn't been sleeping through the night. Because the toddlers definitely were not sleeping. Video recorded by Jonathan and Susana Balkin on their Nest home monitoring system shows 2-year-old twins, Andrew and Ryan having a gymnastics roll-around instead of getting much-needed sleep. The boys easily climbed in and out of their cribs, which are side-by-side in their shared bedroom. They proceeded to line pillows along the floor and do summersaults, and then took rests on the couch together, before going back to their floor...

    Let's get ready to rumble!!!  EDIT: I was misinformed on the topic. They will be debating Obamacare, not climate change. Disregard earlier post if you read it.A year late, Ted Cruz is finally gonna get that one-on-one debate. Unfortunately, this isn't for the presidency, which would have been epic. But this one is not too bad. Cruz and Bernie Sanders will be debating Obamacare," and if anything, it many mean a lot of rational but not-fully-informed people will hear sound reasoning for a change. Jake Tapper and Dana Bash will be moderating this debate, and for once Cruz will have...

    It will make for an interesting story later in life when they get asked – as most twins do – “Which one of you is older?” Samuel was born first, but his twin brother, Ronan, is officially older. You read that correctly. How could this happen? Daylight Saving Time. Cape Cod Healthcare posted the interesting twist on its Facebook page after the twin boys were born at Cape Cod Hospital in Hyannis, Massachusetts. The hospital said Samuel was born at 1:39 a.m. on Sunday, Nov. 6. By the time Ronan was born 31 minutes later, Daylight Saving Time had ended,...

    A Chicago man has made a stunning confession — insisting he committed a 2003 murder that his identical twin brother was thrown in prison for 13 years ago. “I’m here to confess to a crime I committed that he was wrongly accused of,” Karl Smith, 38, told a Chicago judge last week, as his identical twin, Kevin Dugar, dabbed tears from his eyes from his heavily guarded seat in the courtroom. But could these two brothers — so identical that for years they impersonated each other for fun — simply be pulling a fast one on authorities?
  • After twin sisters plummeted off a Hawaii cliff, one died. The other was charged with murder.

    At the beginning of the decade, Alison and Ann Dadow were well-known yoga entrepreneurs who drove matching Porsches, as identical as they were, around West Palm Beach, Fla. In late May, the 37-year-old twins plunged over the edge of a cliff in Hawaii and fell 200 feet in a Ford Explorer, which crumpled like an old soda can when it hit the slick, jagged rocks peeking out of the Pacific Ocean below. Ann, sitting in the front passenger seat, was pronounced dead at the scene. Her sister Alison was rushed to the hospital in critical condition and on Monday was...

    An 'extremely rare' case of twins born with different fathers has been reported in Vietnam after a DNA test was ordered. The bi-parental twins were taken for testing because of stark differences in their appearances, according to local reports. Twins born with different fathers can happen if two eggs from the same mother are fertilised by sperm from two different men during separate acts of sexual intercourse within the same ovulation period, AFP reports.

    The premise of children behind the wheel seems like an incident out of a movie, but it was a frightening reality for one Enid mom, who had fallen asleep. Three siblings, a six-year-old and twin 3-year-olds, took the family's 2002 Chevrolet Suburban for a ride on the afternoon of Tuesday, March 1. "The children were taking a nap, so she took a nap. So, it's apparent they obviously woke up and got into a little mischief," said Capt. Jack Morris of Enid Police Department, Police believe the kids drove their mother's SUV - in reverse - down W Rupe toward...

    Dean Chance, the 1964 Cy Young winner and a recently inducted member of the Angels Hall of Fame, has died. He was 74 ... In 1964, Chance was 20-9 with a 1.65 ERA, winning the Cy Young Award at a time when there was only one winner, rather than one for each league. At the time, the 23-year-old Chance was the youngest pitcher ever to win the Cy Young, a distinction he held until Dwight Gooden won the award at age 20 in 1985 ...

    Folks this is unusual for me, but I ran across a very pretty duet by twin sisters from Green Bay, Wisconsin. They appeared on The Voice on Tuesday the 29th. The performance was very nice and I wanted others to be able to enjoy it. This is a live performance on the show, and there are some interruptions, but the listen is well worth it. The song lasts about a minute and thirty seconds. I hope you enjoy these two young women's singing as much as I did.

    Once upon a time, your origins were easy to understand. Your dad met your mum, they had some fun, and from a tiny fertilised egg you emerged kicking and screaming into the world. You are half your mum, half your dad – and 100% yourself. Except, that simple tale has now become a lot more complicated. Besides your genes from parents, you are a mosaic of viruses, bacteria – and potentially, other humans. Indeed, if you are a twin, you are particularly likely to be carrying bits of your sibling within your body and brain. Stranger still, they may be...

    FULL TITLE: Pregnancy Test That Can Predict Down Syndrome, Miscarriage, And Twins May Be Available In Just 2 Years The days of wondering what to expect when you’re expecting may soon be over. Researchers in the UK are working on eliminating much of the mystery surrounding pregnancies by developing a mail-in test that can predict everything from whether or not a couple is having twins to if an unborn child may have Down syndrome, using nothing more than a urine sample. MAP Diagnostics is the company behind the first-of-its-kind pregnancy test that would reveal intricate details of both a mother...

But he should really set the example by speaking English while in the United States.”

    HOUSTON, TX, August 4 2015 (LifeSiteNews) – A Planned Parenthood official admits that abortionists sometimes provide “intact” babies' body for organ harvesting and experimentation, in the latest undercover video released by the Center for Medical Progress. It also includes graphic footage of investigators seeing pristine organs extracted from a 20-week-old aborted baby. The director of research for Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast, Melissa Farrell, told undercover investigators that abortionists are willing to alter the abortion process to obtain the body parts researchers request, or to deliver a child essentially intact. “They can make it happen,” she said. “We bake that into our contract,...

    I’ll quote a little but you’re better off reading the whole thing. There’ll be lots of media noise around it for the next few days, especially after Trump responds. And it’s a fine indictment of Hopenchange even apart from the Trump stuff. He’s trying to do two things here, picking a fight with the media’s favorite candidate to gain some reflected exposure and re-introducing himself to righties who disdain Trump but aren’t sure which way to go yet as an alternative. This is Perry telling Trump-haters, of which there are many, that their choices aren’t between Jeb Bush and Ted...
