Raising The Dead

One afternoon in February 2011, Kelly Dwyer strapped on a pair of snowshoes and set out to hike a beaver pond trail near her home in Hooksett, New Hampshire. When the sun dropped below the horizon hours later, the 46-year-old environmental educator still hadn’t returned home. Her husband, David, was worried. Grabbing his cellphone and a flashlight, he told their two daughters he was going to look for Mom. As he made his way toward the pond, sweeping his flashlight beam across the darkening winter landscape, he called out for Kelly. That’s when he heard the moans.
Running toward them, David phoned their daughter Laura, 14, and told her to call 911. His flashlight beam soon settled on Kelly, submerged up to her neck in a hole of dark water in the ice. As David clutched her from behind to keep her head above water, Kelly slumped into unconsciousness. By the time rescue crews arrived, her body temperature was in the 60s and her pulse was almost too faint to register. Before she could reach the ambulance, Kelly’s heart stopped. The EMTs attempted CPR—a process doctors continued for three hours at a hospital in nearby Manchester. They warmed her frigid body. Nothing. Even defibrillation wouldn’t restart her heart. Kelly’s core temperature hovered in the 70s. David assumed he’d lost her for good.

Kung Fu nuns strike back ...

As dawn breaks, the sun edges over the expansive jagged mountains of Ladakh – a remote Buddhist ex-kingdom in the Indian Himalayas bordering Tibet – to reveal a world where time appears to have stood still.
The chant of monks in a centuries-old monastery can be heard in the distance. Villagers slowly emerge from whitewashed stone cottages to tend to their wheat and barley fields, and ready their goats to search for pasture.
Complete with its picture-perfect temples precariously perched atop rocky mountain outcrops, giant shrines and mantra-engraved walls, Ladakh’s age-old Tibetan Buddhist way of life appears almost untouched by modernity.
Until, that is, you hear the energetic yells of scores of young women, clad in sweatpants and trainers. Fanned out in front of a majestic white temple-like structure, they stretch, lunge, jump, kick and punch on the orders of nuns.
Meet the Kung Fu nuns – women from an age-old Buddhist sect who are using their martial arts expertise to challenge gender roles in this conservative culture and teach women self-defense, as reports of rapes rise in India.

Mormon Bishop Dugs and Has Sex with Boys

A former LDS bishop in Utah County arrested in June for drugging and sexually abusing two teen boys pleaded guilty to his crimes Wednesday.
Erik Hughes, 51, pleaded guilty to two second-degree felonies of forcible sexual abuse and one third-degree felony of tampering with a witness, according to the Daily Herald.
He was arrested after police say he gave the underage boys pills before sexually abusing them. According to police reports, a now 18-year-old man reported to the Division of Child and Family Services that Hughes had drugged him and sexually assaulted him several times about three years ago, when he was 15.
A second man later came forward and reportedly told police Hughes had sexually abused him between 30 and 50 times, the Daily Herald reported.
According to KUTV, the first victim told police that Hughes frequently asked about his personal growth and whether he was going through puberty. He said Hughes would give him a white pill, which he thought was melatonin, as he takes it to help him sleep.
However, the victim said he felt weird after taking the pill, according to a probable cause arrest statement. When the victim told Hughes about the strange sensation, Hughes said he must have given him the wrong one and that he would make sure not to mix them up again.
On a separate occasion, Hughes gave the victim a smoothie, but when he opened the bottle, it came open easily, suggesting the seal had been broken. The victim told police the smoothie tasted bitter, but he still drank it, according to the police report. He stated that the smoothie had similar effects to the pill he had previously been given.
The second victim, now 22, told police that Hughes started grooming him at age 16 and first assaulted him when he was 17, measuring his penis and dosing him with Viagra. One one occasion Hughes asked the victim to accompany him to Las Vegas, where he gave the boy a pill that made him feel groggy. According to police reports, Hughes then performed oral sex on the victim.
Hughes will be sentenced on Oct. 10, the Daily Herald reported. The maximum time he could serve in Utah State Prison is one to 15 years for each second-degree felony.

‘You look fat’

‘You look fat’: SC high school principal asks girls not to wear leggings unless they’re ‘size 2’ or smaller
A high school principal in South Carolina added some personal insults to her description of the dress code.
Principal Heather Taylor was speaking to an assembly of 10th-grade students Tuesday when she told girls that leggings were unflattering for many of them, reported WCBD-TV.
According to a parent’s Facebook post, she told girls that they could get away with wearing stretch pants in middle school, before they developed figures, but now most of them should no longer wear them.
“I’ve told you this before, I’m going to tell you this now, unless you are a size zero or two and you wear something like that, you look fat,” Taylor can be heard saying on a recording.
Students reported the principal’s remarks, and parent Lacy Thompson-Harper said she called Taylor to discuss the incident.
“Body shaming teenage girls is uncalled for, inappropriate and unprofessional,” Thompson-Harper said. “When I spoke with her, she talked around the issue, and made excuse after excuse, effectively calling all of the students liars.”
Taylor later agreed to apologize to the students, according to the parent, and the TV station reported that she later asked parents to call her if they had additional concerns.

Alt-Right circle jerk to get dog poop welcome at SF park

A group of alt-right agitators will be met with a stinky surprise when they arrive at San Francisco’s Crissy Field on Saturday.
Hordes of local dog owners plan on bringing their pups to poop there ahead of a rally organized by the wingnut cabal Patriot Prayer, whose past circle jerks have turned violent.
“I just had this image of alt-right people stomping around in the poop,” organizer Tuffy Tuffington, 45, told The Guardian. “It seemed like a little bit of civil disobedience where we didn’t have to engage with them face to face.”
Tuffington, a 45-year-old artist, launched a Facebook event page encouraging other dog owners in the city to “Leave a gift for our Alt-Right friends” — and people responded in force, with more than a thousand signing up and another 5,555 down as maybes.
Many confirmed attendees pledged to save up bags of doggie dung days in advance — and then dump it on the field.
They plan on cleaning up the doo-doo — but not until the circle jerk is over.
Meanwhile, others plan to protest Patriot Prayer in a more aromatic way with an event called “Flowers Against Fascism” that channels the hippie anthem of “If you’re going to San Francisco, be sure to wear some flowers in your hair.”
“Organizers of the [Patriot Prayer] circle jerk claim to disassociate themselves with white supremacy and only want a peace and love to unite Americans,” wrote even coordinator Susan Bolt.
“If that’s the case, then we’ll tune into the love frequency again to show them just how peace and love is done — with flowers for their hair. Bring all the cut flowers you can gather to Crissy Field to distribute in the name of equality and against fascism.”
Other wacky counter-protests on Saturday will include people dressed as clowns and arriving via kayaks, Facebook events show.
“You have a significant number of people who would like to go and punch Nazis, and then you have people who think they should be entirely ignored. In between you have all sorts of creative and crazy ideas. I kind of like that,” activist Cleve Jones told The Guardian.
Note: This circle jerk was canceled - first they tried to move it but people found it and simply moved to stop it so the wingnuts just cancelled the entire thing ... which was the desired outcome anyway (the fact that the wingnuts would be Goosestepping in dog shit was not an unpleasant thought in the first place though).
