Dog Mauls 9-Year-Old Boy To Death Inside Holiday Caravan, Owner Under Investigation 

 

A nine-year-old boy vacationing with his family in Tencreek Holiday Park in Looe, England, was mauled to death by a dog inside a caravan.

Frankie Macritchie, from Plymouth, about 22 miles away, was killed Saturday after he was left with a family friend’s dog. His mother was visiting another mobile home parked near the area. "We believe that Frankie was alone in a caravan with the dog as he was attacked, whilst the adults that he was on holiday with were in an adjacent unit. There was sound of a disturbance and sounds of distress coming from the caravan. Immediately on hearing that, members of the public ran towards it and attempted to render first aid to Frankie,” Detective Superintendent Mike West told the Telegraph.

The police responded to the scene at around 5 a.m. local time (12 a.m. EDT), and found the victim in an unresponsive state. The boy was declared dead at the scene.

Ask Amy: Recovering mom doesn't want dog at home 

 

Dear Amy: For the past 2 ½ years my son (now 9) has been asking for a dog. I’ve been saying no because while I like dogs, I prefer them in other people’s houses.

I didn’t want to take on the considerable expense and care for a dog.

Four months ago, I had a brain aneurysm. Thankfully, I am OK and recovering. However, during my recovery in the hospital I thought I was dying and that it would be a good idea for my son to have a dog to love and care for in the event that I did die.

I was coming off of anesthesia and on a lot of pain medication. I feel confident in saying that at the time, I was not in my right mind.

AI can predict when someone will die with unsettling accuracy 

 

Medical researchers have unlocked an unsettling ability in artificial intelligence (AI): predicting a person's early death.

Scientists recently trained an AI system to evaluate a decade of general health data submitted by more than half a million people in the United Kingdom. Then, they tasked the AI with predicting if individuals were at risk of dying prematurely — in other words, sooner than the average life expectancy — from chronic disease, they reported in a new study.

The predictions of early death that were made by AI algorithms were "significantly more accurate" than predictions delivered by a model that did not use machine learning, lead study author Dr. Stephen Weng, an assistant professor of epidemiology and data science at the University of Nottingham (UN) in the U.K., said in a statement.

CATS SHOULD BE KILLED TO SAVE EARTH'S MOST ENDANGERED SPECIES FROM EXTINCTION, SCIENTISTS SAY 

 

Animals such as feral cats and dogs should be culled from islands around the world to save their prey from extinction, according to conservationists.

Eradicating creatures like rats, mongooses, pigs, and goats from 169 islands could save some 9.4 percent of the planet’s most-threatened animals, argue the authors of a study published in the journal PLOS One.

The world’s 465,000 islands only take up around 5.3 percent of land on Earth, yet they are home to 75 percent of known extinctions of bird, mammal, amphibian and reptile extinctions since 1500, the authors highlighted. Now, 36 percent of the world’s critically endangered species live on these pieces of land.

To arrive at their conclusion, the researchers looked at data on 1,184 highly threatened native vertebrates, as identified as critically endangered or endangered on the IUCN Red List, and 184 non-native mammals that live on 1,279 islands across the world.

Using this data, they created a list of 292 islands whose native animals would benefit from culling invasive mammals. Of these islands, the researchers highlighted 107 across 34 countries where eradication could start as soon as 2020.

It’s Becoming More Evident: The Stress of Racism Is Killing Our Babies...and Us 

 

If A=B, and B=C, does A=C? Well, not always, but in the case of stress, racism and preterm birth, one researcher thinks there’s a definitive case to be made.

The jarring statistics are already out there: African-American women are three to four times more likely to experience a pregnancy-related death than white women. Additionally, African-American women are nearly twice as likely to give birth prematurely as white women, which leads to low birth weight, believed to be responsible for nearly 20 percent of infant deaths. Finally, black infants are twice as likely to die as white babies in the United States.

Pet Pit Bulls Maul Owner To Death In Veterinary Clinic 

 

A dog owner from Irving, Texas, was mauled to death by her two pet pit bull terriers, which were quarantined at a veterinary clinic for a “recent biting” incident.

Johana Villafane, 33, was fatally bitten by the pair of canines when she went to the clinic to feed them, Saturday. She was in an exercise area of the facility when the dogs started attacking her at 11:45 a.m. CDT (12:45 p.m. EDT).

“Officers were dispatched to assist the Irving fire Department who had been summoned to a veterinary clinic on reports of a woman in need of medical attention. Staff reported that a dog owner had been attacked by her two pit bull terriers and appeared to be seriously injured,” a press release from the police department stated.

Parkland Students Share Mental Health Resources to Support Each Other 

 

After two Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School students died by apparent suicides in the span of just a week, current and former students at the school are calling on the Parkland community to support its young people with mental health services. On social media, survivors are reminding us of the supports available when you're having a hard time.

Anti-gun violence activist David Hogg, who graduated from Stoneman Douglas in 2018, took to Twitter in the wake of his classmates' deaths, saying that the trauma endured after a mass shooting doesn't fade quickly.

"Stop saying you’ll get over it,'" he wrote. "You don’t get over something that never should have happened because those that die from gun violence are stolen from us not naturally lost. Trauma and loss don’t just go away, you have to learn to live with it through getting support."

Kentucky's hepatitis A outbreak claims another victim, raising the death toll to 44 

 

Kentucky's hepatitis A outbreak contributed to another death, bringing the outbreak's toll to 44, according to the latest weekly state report posted on Tuesday.

The nation's largest hepatitis A outbreak, declared in November 2017, has sickened 4,288 people and sent 2,065 of them to the hospital. The new report also shows cases continued a downward trend in rural Kentucky.

Dr. Charles Noplis, a psychiatrist focusing on addiction medicine, said many of the Kentuckians who die from hepatitis A are especially vulnerable because they have other health issues, such as hepatitis C. Among the general public, he said, death from hepatitis A is rare.

"I would've never guessed the deaths would be this high," said Noplis, who practices at Renew Recovery and sees patients in London, Kentucky. "I think it underscores the biggest issues at hand in the southeastern portion of the state. We need better health care, better education."

Alcohol Deaths Among Women Are Rising, But This Is Why No One’s Talking About It 

 

While the opioid crisis is rightfully getting attention for the destruction it's caused, alcohol use among women has quietly risen in the background, USA Today reports. Citing a study from the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation at the University of Washington and published in the journal The Lancet, USA Today says that during a 10-year period, alcohol related deaths among women rose 67 percent. What's more, the study reported that alcohol is the leading cause of death worldwide for people between the ages of 15 and 49.

The NRA denies the reality of gun violence. Doctors like me know it all too well. 

 

Last week, the Annals of Internal Medicine published a set of guidelines by the Health and Public Policy Committee of the American College of Physicians (ACP) addressing the problem of firearm-related injuries and death from a public health perspective.

The National Rifle Association (NRA) quickly rebuked the journal — and physicians in general — on Twitter, saying: “Someone should tell self-important anti-gun doctors to stay in their lane.”

As a gun rights advocacy group, the NRA’s sharp critique was entirely expected. But the eruption from my physician colleagues on social media was startling. Responding to the NRA’s central point — that doctors should “stay in their lane” on the topic of guns — medical professionals created a viral hashtag, #ThisISMyLane (also #ThisISOurLane), sharing vivid stories of their clinical experiences with gunshot wound victims, arguing that, despite what the NRA might believe, the issue falls unavoidably into the laps of medical practitioners.

Drugs, Alcohol and Suicide Are Killing So Many Young Americans That the Country’s Average Lifespan Is Falling 

 

Young Americans are dying in rising numbers because of drugs, alcohol and suicide, according to new federal data.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS) issued its annual comprehensive health and mortality report, which analyzes trends in death rates by cause and demographic. Drugs, alcohol and suicide, the report says, have contributed to the first drops in U.S. life expectancy since 1993. While U.S. life expectancy rose from 77.8 to 78.6 years between 2006 and 2016, the trend reversed during the end of the decade, leading to a 0.3-year decline between 2014 and 2016 — in large part because of rising rates of drug overdoses, suicide and liver disease, as well as Alzheimer’s.

There’s a new global ranking of gun deaths. Here’s where the U.S. stands 

 

In 2016, more than 250,000 people worldwide died as a result of firearms, and half of all of those deaths came from six nations, including the U.S.

The new numbers, from the University of Washington’s Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation’s latest study of Global Burden of Diseases, Injuries and Risk Factors, offer several new ways to measure the impact of gun deaths worldwide.

Half of all gun-related deaths in 2016 occurred in six nations — Brazil, the United States, Mexico, Venezuela, Colombia and Guatemala. Together, the study published in the journal JAMA noted, these countries hold less than 10 percent of the world’s population.

Montana had the highest suicide rate in the country. Then budget cuts hit. 

 

Mourners in this small town in northeast Montana, where a strip of appliance shops and bars are dwarfed by vast ranches, packed into a church this month to pray for Michael Lee.

A week earlier, Michael, a 13-year-old who dreamed of playing for the NFL, had killed himself in his family’s red clapboard home. At the funeral on Aug. 3, a row of Michael’s middle-school football teammates sat behind his relatives and friends, wearing maroon jerseys and white armbands with “R.I.P.” handwritten on them. A handful of strangers were there, too; the funeral announcement said anyone affected by suicide was welcome.

That seems to include just about everybody in the state these days.
