The White House has said that U.S. President Donald Trump will undergo a physical examination while promising to allow the results to be released. Trump will be examined by a doctor at Walter Reed, a military medical center, “scheduled for the first part of 2018,” said White House press secretary Sarah Sanders. “Those records will be released by the doctor following that taking place,” she added. Sanders’s announcement came a day after Trump appeared to get a dry mouth and slurred his words when delivering remarks on Wednesday, leading to questions about the president’s health. “There were a lot of questions on that, frankly pretty ridiculous questions,” Sanders said. “The president’s throat was dry. Nothing more than that.” Trump’s predecessors typically underwent annual physical examinat...Read More
British journalist Hilary Freeman was searching for a nursery for her daughter — but when an overweight caretaker tended to her child at one of the trials, she knew the school wasn’t for her. Despite describing the woman as “kind and great with children,” Freeman couldn’t fathom the idea of leaving her child in her care. “She was only in her 20’s, but she was already obese — morbidly so. She moved slowly and breathlessly, her face flushed,” Freeman wrote for the Daily Mail. “Would she, I wondered, have the lightning reflexes needed to save an adventurous toddler from imminent danger?” Freeman later opted to send her daughter to a school where “the staff are all a healthy weight” — yet she denies her decision was in any way discriminatory. “What sort of unhealthy habits would she teac...Read More
The owner of a boarding school for teenagers coerced one student into a sexual relationship, had girls undress during “body image therapy” sessions and put some students in solitary confinement for days, Iowa prosecutors alleged Friday. Former Midwest Academy director Benjamin Trane, 39, pleaded not guilty to charges of third-degree sexual abuse, sexual exploitation by a counselor and child endangerment. A judge ordered that he be held at the Lee County Jail on a $500,000 cash-only bond. The charges come after a 19-month investigation into alleged abuse at the private, for-profit boarding school in Keokuk, in Iowa’s southeastern corner. The school, which enrolled about 100 students from mostly well-off families across the United States, closed in January 2016 after invest...Read More
In Mexico The biggest earthquake to hit Mexico in over a Century occurred on September the 7th and death toll is now put at 58. The earthquake is said to have moved the fault by 32 Feet.

The island of Barbuda is “literally under water” and “barely habitable” after nearly all of its buildings were destroyed by Hurricane Irma. One death in Barbuda adds to two deaths in nearby St. Barts and St. Martin, according to the French Overseas Affairs Minister Annick Girardin. The estimated cost of rebuilding Barbuda is expected to be at least $150 million, the beginning of what could be a devastating impact from the storm that has hit Puerto Rico and is now moving towards the U.S. mainland. Authorities in Florida issued emergency warnings on Tuesday, with officials in Georgia and South Carolina following suit for their states’ coastal areas after forecasts showed Irma veering northward.
