  • Doctors thought he just had jock itch. Then it spread.

    Late Friday afternoon on Dec. 4, 2014, Stephen Schroeder was waiting to board his packed flight from Philadelphia to Las Vegas for a much anticipated long weekend with his son when his cellphone rang. On the line was an unexpected caller: his doctor, reporting test results sooner than Schroeder had expected. Listening intently, Schroeder was flooded with disbelief as he struggled to comprehend what he was hearing. Using the lip of a trash can as a writing surface, he scribbled notes on the back of his boarding pass, making the doctor spell out each unfamiliar word. Then he sent a terse text to his wife, who was at their home in the Philadelphia suburbs, and got on the plane. Onboard, Schroeder,

  • Russia is preparing for nuclear war

    Across Russia, forty million civilians and military personnel just finished up emergency drills aimed at preparing the general population for nuclear or chemical weapons attacks, the Wall Street Journal's Thomas Grove reports. But as troubling as the largest civil defense drills since the height of the Cold War have been, the steps Russia has taken to improve its offensive nuclear capabilities likely overshadow them. Since the breakdown of US-Russian talks on the fate of Syria, Russia has pulled out of a nuclear non-proliferation agreement with the US citing "unfriendly acts" by the US, it has moved nuclear-capable missiles to its European enclave of Kaliningrad, and it has threatened "asymmetrical" and "painful" actions against the US should it decide to impose sanctions on Russia over Syria.

  • Republican fears of 'skewed' polls come roaring back

    Four years ago, many Republicans were caught off-guard by Mitt Romney’s loss, despite ample polling data showing President Obama on track to win. The problem for much of the right is that conservatives saw the survey results, but were convinced the data had been “skewed” in Democrats’ favor. And now, it’s happening again. To be sure, some Republicans remember their 2012 mistakes. Rush Limbaugh, for example, told his audience yesterday, “I wish that I could sit here and tell you that I, without question, think the polls are rigged. I have thought so in previous elections…. In 2012, honest to God, folks, I thought Romney was gonna win by five or six.” But Limbaugh’s warnings aren’t resonating broadly

  • Woman Dies After Hospital Refuses to Treat Her for a Miscarriage

    Valentina Milluzzo had been carrying twins for less than five months when she arrived at Italy’s Cannizzaro Hospital in labor. She was already experiencing complications, and after two weeks, her temperature and blood pressure dropped and one of the fetuses developed breathing issues. But her family’s lawyer says the doctor refused to perform an abortion, claiming to be a “conscientious objector,” according to the BBC. "As long as it’s alive, I will not intervene,” they allegedly said. She miscarried within hours and died the next day. The head of the hospital disputed the family's allegations in a statement to the Ansa news agency, saying that they were incorrect. Another doctor at the same
