The current medical definition of death is when the heart stops beating. In an interview with LiveScience, NYU Langone’s Sam Parnia, a pulmonologist who studies resuscitation, notes that from that point, it takes up to 20 seconds before brain waves are no longer detectable. If you manage to restart the heart, which is what CPR attempts to do, you'll gradually start to get the brain functioning again.
DEAR ABBY: I will soon be married 48 years, but it is not much of a marriage. There is no sex, no touching, no kind and compassionate words, only bickering and arguing. I can’t figure out why I’m still here. I have thought about leaving many times. I have written three books, and because of it, my husband has ridiculed me. I have also owned and operated two businesses. I’m active in the community, which he resents. He is an introvert, while I am an extrovert. He no longer accompanies me to activities, but when he did, he would make snide remarks to people who stopped to chat with us. So I no longer invite him. Help me, please! - SAD, LONELY WIFE DEAR WIFE: I will try. If you are asking my permission
When researchers are searching for remnants of structures and settlements constructed by ancient peoples they typically focus on areas that are hospitable to human life. A new discovery in Saudi Arabia goes firmly against that notion, with archaeologists revealing the existence of hundreds of stone "gates" situated in and around ancient lava domes, in an area that is little more than a hellish landscape devoid of vegetation and water. The structures, which measure anywhere from 40 feet to nearly 1,700 feet in length, are crude in their construction, built of rough rocks that have withstood thousands of years of wear and tear. What's most interesting is that it appears that the lava fields these structures were built upon was still active at the time, with hardened lava appearing to have flowed over some of the gates. "Gates are found almost exclusively in bleak, inhospitable lava fields with scant water or vegetation, places seemingly amongst the most unwelcoming to our species," David Kennedy of the Western University of Australia, who led the research, wrote. Kennedy noted that the structures "appear to be the oldest man-made structures in the landscape," and that at the moment "no obvious explanation of their purpose can be discerned." The discovery was made using satellite imagery, and the researchers used their birds-eye view to identify nearly 400 of the gates in the same area. Along with the odd walls, other clearly manmade structures were spotted including what appear to be animal traps and wheel-shaped objects that are yet to be identified. The current best guess as to the age of the construction is somewhere in the neighborhood of 9,000 years. The next step for researchers is launching some kind of expedition to investigate the site and perhaps come up with some kind of an explanation as to why the structures exist and what they were used for. It's an incredible discovery, but the structures - and their precarious location - are so mysterious that there's bound to be an even greater story waiting to be told.

Russian President Vladimir Putin has called on U.S. citizens to stop disrespecting President Donald Trump, a trend that the Russian leader called a symptom of a poor political system in the U.S. Putin, who U.S. officials have accused of swaying the 2016 U.S. presidential race in Trump's favor, broke a streak of hostile diplomatic exchanges between the two leading powers during a speech Thursday in order to defend his former political ally from what he considers unfair criticism at home. Speaking at the Valdai Discussion Club in Sochi, Putin again denied any claims of Russian interference in last year's U.S. elections, asserting that Trump "won honestly" and that he and his supporters have behaved legitimately in response to the current U.S. political climate.
About a month ago, LaVar Ball said a typical LaVar thing about his son Lonzo, and the blogs wrote about it in typical blog fashion, and the Twitters tweeted about it in typical Twitter fashion. Here’s what @NBAonTNT said, for example. It would have passed by, and the world would have kept on turning, if not for an NBA player taking notice, one who plays for a crosstown rival. Here’s what Patrick Beverley had to say about the matter. Beverley had a point: the Lakers and the Clippers faced each other on Thursday in their respective season openers. And Beverley made good on that promise from last month. Beverley made Ball’s debut miserable. Just a few minutes into the game, Beverley forced Ball
