City asked to change patrol car design because it offends immigrants

in Uncategorized

144 law enforcement officers were shot and killed in the line of duty, last year. The number of law enforcement officer deaths in 2018 is rising which is disappointing news as these figures show just how dangerous and difficult their job really is.

Laguna Beach Police Department were hoping to give the vehicles a much needed facelift as they unveiled their patrol cars’ new design.

However, once people saw the design, they instantly demanded the department to change it. Some criticised the new design was “a symbol of racism” toward immigrants.

The Laguna Beach Police Department didn’t expect to receive any critisism when they unveiled the new design on their cars. They are in hot water with the city council for the wording on the patrol car doors, which features “POLICE” in American flag print.

The word “police” features prominently across the side of each vehicle, painted in an Old Glory-inspired red, white and blue design.

Some in the community take pride in the patriotic look, others find it problematic. The decals prompted criticism from a small minority of the public who said the stars and striped are offensive, and aggressive, particularly to immigrants.

Mayor Pro Tem Steve Dicterow confirmed that people found the print to be racist. He has received a dozen emails of concern from residents after the city council approved the design.

Some of the words people used was that they felt it was threatening, intimidating, harassing and a symbol of racism,” Steve Dicterow said.

Local artist Carrie Woodburn said the design scheme and having the American flag on the squad cars looked “aggressive.”

Carrie Woodburn received more than 150 angry messages via phone calls, texts, voicemails and emails from people who disagreed with her assessment.

Woodburn, whose parents served in the US military, said she wasn’t criticizing the appearance of the flag. “I don’t really care too much about the design, other than what I said — it’s bad art,” Woodburn said.

The matter dates to February, when the proposed graphic that the council unanimously approved was a more muted version.“Clearly, the way it looks on the car is not what anyone expected it to look like,” Dicterow said.

“I think it’s reasonable that we’re going to look at it again so that whatever we [approve] is exactly what we put on the car.”

The council proposed a more muted black-and-white version of the text, a small group of protesters gathered near the beach Monday afternoon to show support for the patriotic design.

People are screaming that the American flag on a police car is somehow or another … hurting people’s feelings who might be immigrants or visitors,” said Councilman Peter Blake.“People are actually ridiculous enough to bring up comments about our cop cars having American flags on them.”

So far the Laguna Beach Police explained that they haven’t received any negative comments. The reactions have been positive and those driving the vehicles haven’t heard complaints.

Every time I came to a stop sign, every time I came to a red light, somebody is telling me the car looks great. Every one of our members that drives the car loves it, and we look forward to keeping them the way they are”, Laguna Beach Police Cpl. Ryan Hotchkiss said.

On Tuesday night, the City Council decided to keep the American flag-adorned lettering that became the subject of a nationwide debate over whether the design is patriotic or “threatening.”

After two hours of public comments the decision came in a 4-1 City Council vote, which included the singing of the national anthem and chants of “USA.”

12-year-old boy suffered fatality after school took away his asthma inhaler.

in Uncategorized

Any person who suffers from asthma has the potential for each attack to be life-threatening. The sudden and tragic demise of 12-year-old Ryan Gibbons is the very reminder of that.

Ryan was an energetic boy who loved motorbikes and hiking in the woods – but one fatal mistake from his school would soon take his life. In 2012, he experienced an asthma attack at school.

On October 9, 12-year-old Ryan Gibbons, 7th grade student went to school – just like any other day. Sadly, on this occasion he wouldn’t return home.

While he was outside playing soccer in school Ryan suffered an asthma attack but unable to reach for his rescue medication, as it had been taken off him and locked in the school office.

The young boy needed his inhaler to open his airways and allow him to breathe. However the school’s policy was to keep the inhalers locked in the principal’s office and spare inhalers were repeatedly confiscated from Ryan.

Ryan’s friends tried to carry him to the office during the attack, but the boys couldn’t get to the inhaler in time. That’s when Ryan passed out and was never was revived.

The tragedy occurred at the Elgin Country School in Ontario, Canada,which shocked the whole nation.

It became clear following the investigation that Ryan’s school didn’t allow him to keep his puffer with him, despite multiple efforts from his mother along with a doctor’s note.

According to his mother, Sandra Gibbons, Ryan would often bring an extra inhaler to school in order to bypass this rule.

Although asthma attacks aren’t always predictable, it can be dangerous to keep the inhaler locked in a room. The school continued to take Ryan’s extra inhaler away each time.

Ryan’s mom said that the school called her on several occasions, asking her to pick up an inhaler that Ryan had brought to school.

You would give him an inhaler but then he would get caught with the inhaler and then it would be taken away,” Sandra Gibbons said.

Then I’d get a phone call. So it was actually very frustrating. I didn’t understand why. I didn’t realize that the policy actually stated that the prescribed medication needed to be in the office.”

Since Ryan’s death, his mother has vowed to do whatever she could to prevent other families from experiencing the same.

Following the funeral, Sandra Gibbons began to petition the Ontario government to force school boards to adopt standardized asthma management plans. She urged all three parties to pass a private member’s bill from Progressive Conservative Jeff Yurek.

“When Ryan passed away, it was like losing everything that I lived for,” Gibbons told Allergic Living. “After burying my son, I knew that this was a preventable attack. To me, if people had appropriate training and knew what to look for when a child was in distress, he would be here today.”

Sandra hopes to change the laws that keep asthmatic children from being able to carry their life-saving devices. Soon her conscious struggle would generate results.

Ryan’s Law, Bill 135 has now passed into the legislature with all-party support.

The law forces schools to allow children to have their inhalers in their pocket or backpack with a doctor’s note.

I’m definitely overwhelmed, very emotional, very happy it’s going to be implemented,” said Sandra Gibbons.

The Asthma Society also applauded the bill’s passage, with president Dr. Rob Oliphant saying “it is essential that children with asthma have ready access to potentially life-saving asthma medications while at school.”

Each state in the U.S. has laws that allow students to carry their asthma inhalers with them – at all times.

However, some kids continue to be denied access to these lifesaving medications during the school day. Many schools ban inhalers through their blanket anti-drug policies.

Fatal asthma is a significant problem with more than 10 Americans dying each day from asthma. Despite death rates having declined in the last decade, any asthma death is potentially preventable.

Teen posts video of himself throwing hot water on innocent cat

in Uncategorized

People who abuse defenceless animals are disgraceful, they’re actions are shocking to others who try to comprehend why anyone would do commit such an act.

This story should come as a harsh warning to those found guilty of animal abuse. One particular teen who forced a cat to endure such horrific suffering is now spending his days behind bars as a result.

Leon Teague waited patiently for the cat to approach him before throwing boiling water over it. He even recorded himself and later shared the video on Facebook. The horrific clip caught the attention of animal rights activists who sent the video to local authorities in Chicago.

The culprit was identified as Leon Teague who was charged with felony animal torture and a count of misdemeanor animal cruelty for pouring boiling water on a cat and then posting the video on social media.

As a result of his evil actions the 18-year-old was sentenced to three years in jail. Driver, the cat was taken in by Edgewater’s Felines & Canines Shelter where he was given laser treatments and surgeries. Vets weren’t certain if Driver’s fur would even grow back.

Heather Weidmann, the founder of Whiskers and Tails Rescue Foundation who helped catch Driver, said: “I’ll never forget [the cat’s] screams.”

You couldn’t touch him, and those screams are permanently implanted in my head. This [3-year-sentence] was a big step for Cook County. It was a step for the animals because most cases get thrown out. Maybe this will set a precedent not to do that,” she stated.

He has no ill feelings toward humans at all. He still loves humans; he loves dogs. He’s just amazing,” Heather added.

Thankfully Driver did recover and has found a forever home with a loving family.

Take a look at the upsetting scenes in video below which shows this awful animal abuse.

10 common bug bites everybody must learn to identify

in Uncategorized

At some point in their lives practically everyone gets either stung or bitten by an insect. It’s mostly during the summer the people experience those nasty bites. Being more common during the warmer periods, it can often be difficult to what’s bitten you unless you see the culprit.

There’s also the worry about certain infectious bites becoming serious, causing swelling, skin damage or severe itching. Most bites from insects are harmless, whilst others have the potential to transfer harmful diseases.

That’s why, it’s important to understand what exactly has bitten/stung you, and how to remedy the situation.

Here you’ll find a small guide to help you find out what insects are bothering you…

Hornets

Being stung by a hornet is no one’s idea of fun. After a sting, the affected area is often red and very swollen. Blistering of the skin can occur, whilst cooling the area can offer relief.

In some cases, the sting of the hornet can cause an allergic reaction triggered by your own immune system.

If your stomach begins to feel cold or numb, your lips turn a shade of blue and breathing is labored, contact a doctor immediately.

Bees

If you’ve been stung by a honey bee, the skin around the sting site can become red and swollen. After a time, it might itch.

The first day after the sting, swelling can increase and pain may radiate in waves from the area. Bee stings are usually harmless in the long term, and providing you don’t feel bad in yourself you can wait until the symptoms subside.

However, it’s important that you remove the sting, to prevent more poison working its way into your body. For the best results, scrape away the sting with a small gadget such as a knife or your own nails.

Wasps

Perhaps the most notorious of all summer blights, the wasp delivers a sting similar to a bite from other insects. The area can turn red and swell, whilst the victim will experience pain and potentially a terrible itch.

In some cases, bleeding can occur. Unlike a bee, wasps can sting several times, so it’s even more important that you know whether or not you’re allergic.

Mosquito

Most people are familiar with mosquito bites, but all the same it can be difficult to know what’s what.

Mosquito bites look like swollen red spots, roughly the size of a small berry. Mosquitos like to suck blood where the skin is thin and it’s easier for them to reach blood vessels. When they feed, they inject their saliva into the wound, causing numbness in the area that makes it difficult to detect them in the act.

Ticks

Those who are bitten by a tick often don’t know it’s even happened. If you are bitten, however, you can expect a small red patch to occur where the tick has been sitting.

Normally the site shouldn’t be more than a few centimetres in diameter, whilst it’s not uncommon to find a small red lump in the center where the tick was feeding.

Fleas

Flea bites are difficult to self-diagnose, as they’re often mistaken for allergic reactions and mosquito bites. Unlike mosquito bites, however, these bites can be painful and extremely itchy.

Fleas commonly bite the legs of sleeping people, whilst the insects can bite several times in one ‘sitting’, so there’s often a pattern separated by gaps of around 1 to 2cm.

Ants

Most ants pose no real threat to humans. However, red ants are a common pest around the world and are notorious for their painful bites – they can even end up scarring in some cases!

The ants’ poison contains toxins that can cause allergic reactions and – in extreme cases – anaphylactic shock. Commonly, though, symptoms are mild and in many ways similar to a bite from a mosquito.

An ant bite will often appear as a pink spot, with the skin around it tender and itchy. At the moment of the bite, a person may experience a sudden pain.

Horse-fly

If you’ve ever been bitten by a horse-fly, you’ll know you don’t want it to happen again. In rare cases, horse-fly bites can cause blood poisoning and infections.

They may look like big, fat flies, but the blood-sucking horse-fly can deliver a hard and painful bite, often leaving a mark and inducing swelling.

Wash the area with cold water and apply ice.

Lice

If you notice small red dots that look like mosquito bites, in places where hair grows – for example, on your head, neck or behind your ears – it could mean that you have lice.

Severe itching is the most common symptom of head lice, and comes as a result of their biting. To be sure you have lice, run a lice comb through your hair and see what comes out in the sink. Lice are most commonly between one and three millimetres long, with translucent bodies.

Bedbugs

Bed bugs are something you never want to experience.

Bites from bed bugs resemble those from mosquitos, though they often follow zigzagging patterns. Common symptoms include swelling, redness, pain and sometimes puss.

Unfortunately, you can’t get rid of bed bugs by yourself, even if the bites go away. Contact a professional extermination company to help with your bed bug problem.

Angry Mom Speaks Out After Her Baby Got Measles Because Of Anti-Vaxers.

in Uncategorized

Measles is a viral infection which results in a fever, cough, runny nose, inflamed eyes and a red blotchy skin rash. There is no treatment to get rid of it and it can be serious for small children.

Fainy Sukenik believes in vaccines, and her four children are up to date on all their shots.That’s why she’s furious that her baby got measles. Her 8-month-old daughter Shira Goldschmidt was too young to be vaccinated. She developed complications from the virus which required hospitalisation.

One person in every 1,000 people who contract measles will suffer a fatality from the infection. In the U.S where Fainy lives, there are continuous measles outbreaks.

Measles is so contagious that if one person has it, up to 90 per cent of the people close to that person who are not immune will also become infected. Infected people can spread measles to others from four days before through four days after the rash appears,” : accoding to CDC.

In December 2018, Fainy’s 8-month-old baby became infected with the disease requiring hospitalizion due to complications which arose from the disease.

I’m so angry and so frustrated,” mom Fainy said. “On Facebook, I wrote to the anti-vaxers, ‘you are hurting our kids because of your choice.’”

Infectious disease experts claim anti-vaxers that have chosen not to vaccinate their children will spread measles to babies under one whose parents wish to vaccinate them but can’t because they’re too young.

It’s absolutely inevitable,” said Dr. Peter Hotez, a vaccine scientist at the Baylor College of Medicine in Houston.

Anti-vaccination groups believe there is a link between vaccines and autism, but that claim has been refuted by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Baby Shira’s had a fever of 104 degrees along with a runny nose, her parents realised it was measles once red spots appeared a few days later.

When her breathing became shallow she was brought straight to hospital as she was too weak to lift her head. Once there she was placed in isolation and received intravenous fluids.

In December, Fainy published a post on Facebook  addressing those who believed that vaccinations were wrong.

It should be stated that they have a right to believe in anything they choose, but we should also talk about the price that others pay,” Fainy wrote in Hebrew.

She suggested that anti-vaxers either “stay in enclosed areas or hold a big banner noting that you are anti-vaccine.”

Now, baruch Hashem, Shira is OK; she is happy; she has started walking,” Fainy says her post has received more than 4,000 comments with both positive and negative remarks.

Take a look at the video below to read about the importance of vaccinations.

Woman Says Her Lips Quadrupled In Size After Botched Filler

in Uncategorized

A woman urges people to take care after a botched filler injection which caused her lips to quadruple in size. Recently, 29-year-old Rachael Knappier visited a local, highly-qualified, aesthetics nurse for a small dose of filler in her top lip.

Rachel was due a top-up, but didn’t plan on undergoing the procedure at a friend’s house. Rachel claims she was given the injections at a Botox party after a friend had recommended it.

In a panic Rachael raced to A&E but says hospital staff couldn’t believe what had happened and began laughing at her expense. The young woman was concerned that she might lose her top lip and claimed nurses laughed at her throughout the ‘terrifying ordeal’.

She said: “It was fine. I went to bed. I woke up at two in the morning and saw what you see in those pictures.

My lips touched my nose. They quadrupled in size. The pressure and burning on my lips was unbelievable.”

She said: “They hadn’t seen anything like it before. I’ve turned up to A&E with this huge thing on my face.

I’m telling them I’m having an allergic reaction, which is what I thought was happening. Three doctors said I’d actually had the filler injected into my artery.”

Rachael’s lips eventually returned to normal size three days later, but now she wants to campaign for more strict regulations surrounding the procedure as she warns others of the dangers, saying: “Protect before you inject.”

Rachael was joined on This Morning by Dr Tijon Esho, who said she was lucky not to lose her lip and advised only getting the procedure done by a doctor, nurse or dentist.He also revealed that he had been contacted by children as young as 13 looking for lip fillers.

He warned: “She was lucky it was identified as this and had the right agent to dissolve the filler. Many people have life-changing injuries because of this.”

According to the British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons (BAAPS), there has been a steep rise in the number of unregulated procedures – often with no qualifications required to administer filler injections in the UK.

Another young mother who fell victim to botched botox also people against lip filler treatment after she says her swollen lips left her looking like the ‘Elephant Man’.

Billie Roocroft, 23, had never been happy with her ‘thin’ lips and after seeing celebs flaunt their own, she decided to go for a fuller look. But she says the £120 ($94) offer for 1ml of filler, which was given in her living room by a mum and daughter, left her swollen, in pain, and a costly trip to A&E.

Those considering procedures such as fillers and Botox need to ensure they’re getting them done by a reputable and qualified person.

Reasons why toddlers over the age of two should never nap during the day

in Trending

Parents have lots to juggle when it comes to raising their kids, one particular issue they often obsess over is sleep. Does their child get enough rest, or why won’t they take a nap? It just seems like it’s a constant concern.

While parents , particularly those of toddlers, don’t think about the effects of putting their little ones down for a nap during the day, it turns out this routine should be totally avoided.

Toddlers over the age of two who took naps during the day when they were younger, suffered from poor quality of sleep once they were older.

A study which was conducted discovered a link between naps and a child’s behavioral and physical health. Data was collected by researchers which observed napping in children under five-years-old, and the results were very interesting.

A link which showed napping during the day could cause poorer sleep quality after the age of two was discovered. Taking daytime naps could also result in long-term behavioral problems and health issues, such as developmental delays and childhood obesity.

Professor Karen Thorpe from Queensland University of Technology told Kidspot: “Parents should not assume that day sleep and night sleep are the same and therefore by giving them a nap, they’re getting more sleep, because that doesn’t happen.”

Once they no longer biologically need sleep during the day all you’re doing by making them nap is subtracting from night sleep because you disrupt it.

Mom Loses Job After Telling Breastfeeding Moms She Wants To Punch Them

in Uncategorized

Woman all over the world are out here fighting for the good of each other on all sorts of issues, but one of the hottest topics to this day still seems to be surrounding… yep, you guessed it… breastfeeding.

A mother has lost her job and is facing backlash after she claimed that she wanted to punch breastfeeding women and their children

Carly Clark, from Spartanburg, South Carolina, angered the entire internet when she threatened nursing mothers on Facebook. In a post from July 2018 that has since been taken down, Carly clearly expressed her sentiments towards violence and the backlash started immediately.

Back in July 2018, she shared a post on Facebook which unsurprisingly has been taken down since, Carly did not hold back and very clearly expressed her sentiments towards what she deems necessary violence… and the backlash started pretty much immediately after she clicked the “Post” button.

This is a real post from an actual mother, can you believe it?

Naturally, people who saw the post were outraged immediately and wanted to make sure the despicable post was seen by mothers.

In case you’re unfamiliar with the company mentioned above, Petsense is a large chain retail outlet store that can be found in outlet malls and rural markets across the country that specializes in both pet supplies and pet services.

Petsense does, however, promote animal adoption (amazing) through local city and/or county shelters & rescues (even more amazing) and also tries to offer pet products at competitive prices by allowing their customers to purchase directly from their vendor partners (super duper amazing).

Currently, Petsense operates over 150 stores all across the USA and promises that you can purchase quality products at a super affordable price (music to my pet-loving ears, am I right folks?), “from an employee with a smile on their face!” , which is what you would probably expect from any retailer you shop at.

However, after reviewing Ms. Clark’s deplorable post,  many loyal Petsense shoppers felt that she just didn’t fit that description at all… shock, shock, horror, horror. So, they voiced their opinions on the situation, and amazingly so – eventually got Petsense to listen to them.

Ms. Clark is an employee of this company, but she was the damn manager of the place. It just goes to show you never really know who you’re hiring or being served by.

Anyway, Petsense eventually issued a statement saying that the company did not ‘condone violence’ after following the sheer, unadulterated anger over the post and has now confirmed that the “individual in question” is ‘no longer employed’ by the company.

Ms. Clark truly suffered some repercussions after posting such a vile, aggressive post. The internet may have both its advantages and its disadvantages, but this I can honestly say is 100% an advantage of this miraculous invention.

Ms. Clark just refused to take responsibility for her own awful behavior she actually messaged one of the mother’s who had complained about her – Kim Reindeau – in order to say a few things about her character.

It seems like I’m not the only one who feels this way either

Woman’s Horror After Realising Beaded Top Makes It Look Like Her Nipples Are Out

in Uncategorized

Imagine you spend hours searching for the perfect outfit to wear in the morning. Once you find the appropriate outfit you feel confident, sassy – and look the best you have in years.

However once you’re out, you begin to notice people staring in your direction giving strange looks, it’s definitely not the ‘she looks great’ stare either.

That’s exactly what happened to one unlucky lady as she was snapped wearing a jumper while out shopping which had unfortunately placed beads, somehow it appeared as though she was wasn’t wearing a bra.

Instead of ditching the outfit and pretend it never happened, the woman took to Reddit and shared an image of her wearing the beige jumper with two beads, at either side, which appeared to be nipples.

She posted a second pic with her hoodie zipped up, to give a realistic image giving the impression she had fairly stiff nips. At first glance there doesn’t appear to be much wrong with the trendy top, with one person describing it as: “The shirt you can’t wear anything over, unless you want to look like you have permanent pokey nipples.”

Another user was stunned the design flaw hadn’t been spotted before it made it to the shop floor, writing: “Those designers absolutely knew what they were doing. The amazing thing is this actually passed several people before it was sent to manufacturing and even STILL made its way into a store.”


It’s only when she zipped up her hoodie that the true effect of the beads became clear. A third person then added: “It looks bad both ways. one looks like nipples, the other way something is attached to your nipples.”

While another joked: “The top just looks like an ordinary sweatshirt. Not sure what so incredibly ugly about it. Maybe you don’t like the colour?

Still, there are stranger fashion choices. earlier this month a group of models were spotted wearing new designs at Ultra Festival in Miami, where they were no doubt turned a few heads.

The outfits are the brainchild of alternative swimwear and fashion designer Joel Alvarez, who occasionally uses body tape for his unusual fashions for his company, known as The Black Tape Project.

Alvarez explains where the idea stemmed from, writing: “One day in 2008 I was a rookie photographer who was working with a model that suggested I use electrical tape [on] her for the last look.

“I honestly had no idea why she would want this but to make her happy I attempted to use this tape as wardrobe. Essentially I just wrapped her in black electrical tape!”
