Icy river teen body, Sister dead tried to save brother

Icy river teen body, The icy river teen body of a 16-year-old girl has been recovered by crews searching for her on Friday in South Dakota. The girl, Madison Leigh Wallace, willingly jumped into the river in an attempt to save her 6-year-old brother who had somehow either willingly jumped into the water, fell in, or possibly was pushed in.

Crews are still searching for a man in his late twenties, who went into the water in an attempt to save Madison but has since disappeared.

Sioux Falls Fire Rescue Chief Jim Sideras said the recovery crews are still battling the elements, which are not cooperating in their effort to find the missing.

Sideras also said he’s been in touch with Madison’s father, who as expected, is in a state of utter shock and sadness.

“Our prayers are with them, we want to help them cope as best they can,” he said, according to Argus Leader.

Madison was a sophomore at her high school entitled Vermillion High School. As usual with horrific tragedies such as this, school officials are providing students with guidance counselors and grief counselors that they can talk to and try to share their thoughts with.

'Healer' infects with HIV, infected patients with HIV

'Healer' infects with HIV, A music teacher is standing trial at the Bern-Mittelland regional court accused of deliberately infecting 16 people with the HIV, the AIDS virus.

The man, who does not have HIV, denies charges of multiple grievous bodily harm and spreading human diseases, Swiss website 20 Minuten and newspaper Blick reported.

The prosecution alleges the unnamed man injected the 16 music students and patients with HIV-infected blood between 2001 and 2005.

The man is said to have acted under the pretence he was administering acupuncture. In other cases he is accused of doping his alleged victims and infecting them by unknown means.

The blood came from a pupil who told the teacher he was HIV-positive, the prosecution claims.

The lawyer for the self-declared healer told the media his client had never taken blood from a pupil.

Acupuncture was only administered once, he claimed, to his wife when she had back problems.

The defence lawyer could not say how the 16 music pupils and patients had become infected with the virus.

The case rests mainly on accounts given by the alleged victims, 20 Minuten said. The police could not find any infected blood or means of drawing blood at the man’s home.

The trial is expected to last three weeks.

The Twilight starlet's mother, Hollywood script supervisor Jules Stewart, has filed for divorce from K.Stew's father John Stewart, E! News has confirmed.

The split comes just over a month after Kristen's cheating scandal with her Snow White and the Huntsman director Rupert Sanders that broke up her relationship with Robert Pattinson.

Sanders' wife Liberty Ross parties in Hollywood without wedding ring

Stewart initially filed for divorce on Aug. 17. In documents filed Aug. 28, there is no reason given for the dissolution of the marriage.

100-game suspension

100-game suspension, On Friday, it was determined that a 100-game suspension for Cesar Carrillo would be the punishment for his name cropping up in the Biogenesis scandal. Biogenesis is an anti-aging clinic, and Major League Baseball is currently investigating the clinic’s involvement in supplying performance enhancing drugs to players in the league.

Cesar Carrillo is currently a pitcher who plays for the Detroit Tigers.

Carrillo was hit by the league for allegedly violating the Minor League Drug Prevention and Treatment Program. The penalty not only carries a steep 100-game suspension (in Major League Baseball, there are only 162 games), but Cesar will also be suspended without pay.

The MLB is battling hard to climb outside a dark shadow full of rumored players to have taken performance enhancing drugs. The scandal, which reached a fever pitch following the late 1990s when the league enjoyed a resurrection thanks to the likes of Mark McGuire and Sammy Sosa, continues to drain the patience of fans and even some in the media who want the focus of baseball to remain on the diamond, and not in allegations of what player is taking what substance.

As for Carrillo, he will turn 29 at the end of April.

Lil Wayne says I am OK

Lil Wayne has been hospitalized, but according to his camp and his official Twitter account — he’s OK.

The multiplatinum rapper was hospitalized in Los Angeles on Friday and reps confirmed he was “recovering.” He apparently tweeted to his fans from his official account on Friday night: “I’m good everybody. Thx for the prayers and love.”

A person close to the superstar’s camp who asked for anonymity because of the sensitivity of the matter confirmed to The Associated Press that Lil Wayne had a seizure. He has a history of seizures in recent years that have led to previous hospital visits.

While there were some reports that Lil Wayne was fighting for his life, members of his Young Money camp denied it on Twitter.

Before the tweet from Lil Wayne’s account, rapper Mack Maine tweeted: “Wayne is alive and well! We watching the Syracuse game...thanks for the prayers and concern. he will update you all soon.”

Rapper Birdman, Lil Wayne’s mentor, also downplayed reports that Lil Wayne was in grave condition, tweeting: My son is in good spirit..feelin much betta...be home soon.”

The 30-year-old New Orleans native, whose given name is Dwayne Michael Carter Jr., is one of the biggest stars of not only his genre but in all music. He’s due to release his 10th album, “I Am Not a Human Being,” on March 26.

Dave Chappelle is reportedly giving some major

Dave Chappelle is reportedly giving some major consideration to doing a new comedy tour with comedian Chris Rock according to Inquistr reports on Friday, March 15.

It has been about eight year since Dave Chappelle left his hugely popular hit comedy "Chappelle's Show," during the third season. Since then, the comedian has made some headlines being described as a bit of a reclusive, living a low key life in Ohio.

Dave Chappelle has done a few comedy shows, usually unpublicized, and even gives interviews when the mood strikes him. It’s probably more accurate to compare Chappelle to Bill Murray, another next-level comedy guy whose life appears to be one big “Do What You Feel” festival.

Speculation began this week following The Los Angeles Times report that Dave Chappelle is seriously considering going on a comedy tour with Chris Rock, which all started when Chappelle made a surprise stop at the New York City's Comedy Cellar and came from "Grown Ups 2" co-star Chris Rock, who said about Chappelle, he “should come down to Palm Beach,” to which Chappelle allegedly replied “after next Tuesday, I’m free for like 11 years.”

Chris Rock is all gun ho for the event according to witnesses, Rock appeared to be taking the discussion seriously and proposing fall dates for the show, and the paper says the pair texted Jay-Z from the stage and left messages for Arsenio Hall. Chappelle is quoted as reportedly saying:

“This could be the show … Fireside chats with Chris Rock.”

When asked about the possibility of the Rock/Chappelle tour, Chappelle’s rep said simply: “I can’t even say.” Which isn’t a no. As the Times points out, the fact that Chappelle did three nights at the Cellar could indicate that he’s looking to stage a larger return.

So far there has been no confirmation, and reps for Dave Chappelle have declined to comment on the speculation.

Share your thoughts, would you like to see Dave Chappelle and Chris Rock on a comedy tour together soon?

Pope Francis stumbles

Pope Francis stumbles, The newly elected Pope Francis held an audience at St. Peter's Basilica for the cardinals gathered in Rome Friday morning. He had a slight misstep and stumbled as he stepped down from the altar to greet the cardinals at Mass. He quickly regained his footing but not before his trip was captured for the world to see.

The increased scrutiny that comes with his role as pope has resurfaced issues from Francis' past, including claims regarding his role during Argentina's so-called "dirty war," when a military junta killed thousands of Argentinians, including priests. Francis has been accused of not doing enough to protect them.

Special Section: Change at the Vatican

Reporters in Argentina have also tracked down the elderly woman he allegedly wanted to marry -- and who reportedly received love letters from the Francis -- when they were both young teenagers.

On more substantive issues such as church reform, Vatican-watchers say the new pope has already set a significantly different tone in his first days as pontiff. CBS News' Allen Pizzey reports that many believe Francis is simplifying the papacy, wearing his own cross and disdaining the traditional and ornate papal robes. He has urged the faithful in his home country of Argentina to save the money they might spend on a trip to Rome for his installation next week and donate it to the poor instead.

The papal apartments, which were simply decorated under Pope Benedict XVI, were unsealed Friday, and Francis is set to move in during the next several days.

13-page suicide note

13-page suicide note, The 13-page suicide note left by the mother who strapped her 10-month-old son to her chest and jumped out the eighth story window details the reasons for Cynthia Wachenheim to want to kill herself and her son. Her son survived as his mother's body broke his fall, according to Fox News live on Friday, March 15, 2013. A passerby saw the woman fall with the baby and said that the baby bounced off his mother and landed nearby, his injuries were only scratches.

According to UPI.com on Friday March 15, 2013, the note was very specific on the guilt that Wachenheim suffered after her son had taken a couple of falls that she blamed herself for. She was living with shame, she describes in her suicide letter,

The very distraught mother explains that her son once fell off a playset and landed on a wooden floor and another fall she wrote about was when he rolled off the bed and onto the floor. She called them “shameful incidents: in her suicide note. Since these falls, Wachenheim claimed that his demeanor changed and no one would believe her. He cried more often and slept for longer periods of time.

Wachenheim appeared to truly believe that those falls had hurt the baby and he'd suffer the rest of is life from a "series of seizures and concussions."

The mother who sounded very depressed wrote that the guilt over the accidents had sent her into a “spiral of depression” and she was “unable to socialize.” The suicide note described what she was about to do and she also said that she knew what she was about to do, kill her son along with herself, is “evil.”

Wachenheim was out on leave from her job as a court attorney in the Manhattan State Supreme Court. She took time off to care for her baby.

Jacquelin Perry dies, at the age 94

Jacquelin Perry dies, The country was in the grip of a polio epidemic in the 1950s when orthopedic surgeon Dr. Jacquelin Perry began performing spinal surgeries in Downey that helped paralyzed survivors of the disease regain mobility.

When some of the same patients returned to her 40 years later seeking help for pain and muscle weakness wrought by the aftereffects of polio, Perry remained true to form.

She blazed a trail, transforming herself into the leading authority on post-polio syndrome. She was also known for her pioneering analysis of the human gait, publishing a definitive textbook on the subject in her 70s.

Perry, who had Parkinson's disease but was still practicing as of last week, died Monday at her home in Downey. She was 94.

Her death was announced by Rancho Los Amigos National Rehabilitation Center, with which she had been affiliated since 1955.

"She was a giant, a revered figure in her field," said Greg Waskul, executive director of the center's foundation. "Dr. Perry was so creative and innovative. Most of the great doctors have one specialty, but she came up with many new theories and exercises to keep people moving."

During World War II, Perry had served as a physical therapist in the Army, treating polio patients in Hot Springs, Ark. But she yearned to "make my own decisions," she later said, and decided to study medicine at UC San Francisco.

After joining Rancho Los Amigos, Perry collaborated with Dr. Vernon Nickel on polio cases. For spinal surgery patients, the pair developed the halo, a metal ring still in use today that is screwed into the skull, immobilizing the spine and neck.

When The Times honored her as the 1959 Woman of the Year in science, Perry pointed out that "most doctors go into medicine to save lives. I'm more interested in getting handicapped persons functioning again."

After a brain artery blockage forced Perry to stop operating, she founded Rancho's Pathokinesiology Laboratory in 1968 to analyze the biomechanics of walking. She served as chief of the department until 1996 and continued to consult in semi-retirement.

"Dr. Perry was a visionary pioneer in the field of rehabilitation sciences and gait analysis," said Judith M. Burnfield, director of the Institute for Rehabilitation Science and Engineering at Madonna Rehabilitation Hospital in Lincoln, Neb.

With physical therapist colleagues at Rancho, Perry established an observational system used by clinicians around the world to determine why patients are having trouble walking and how to manage the problem.

Her research on patients with severe deficits arising from neurologic and orthopedic injuries continues to guide present-day therapeutic approaches, said Burnfield, who helped Perry update her textbook, "Gait Analysis," first published in 1992.

The first cases of post-polio syndrome were not seen until 1980, according to Perry, and they surprised doctors. The condition stems from further weakening of overworked nerves and muscles damaged years before by polio's initial infection.

The same drive that had helped polio patients overcome the disability as children got in the way in adulthood, according to Perry, who instructed patients to downshift physically to protect themselves.

"As far as I'm concerned, I've never worked," Perry told The Times in 1999. "I do what I like to do."

The only child of a clothing shop clerk and a traveling salesman, Perry was born May 31, 1918, in Denver and moved to California the year she turned 6. She never married and had no immediate survivors.

At UCLA, she earned a bachelor's degree in physical education in 1940. She taught swimming for one day before quitting to attend physical therapy school at Walter Reed Hospital in Washington, D.C.

After earning her medical degree in 1950, Perry was recruited to help launch Rancho's rehabilitation program after completing her residency at UC San Francisco.

From 1972 to the late 1990s, she was a professor of surgery at USC's medical school, where she established a scholarship for study of the human gait.

The no-nonsense Perry was seen as both an intimidating and inspiring teacher. Those who survived presenting a case before her were often given an unofficial award. They called it "the red badge of courage."

A celebration of Perry's life will begin at noon March 22 in the Support Services Annex Building at Rancho Los Amigos National Rehabilitation Center, 7601 E. Imperial Highway, Downey.

Cow dung air freshener

Cow dung air freshener, Two Indonesian high school students have made an air freshener from cow manure.

Dwi Nailul Izzah and Rintya Aprianti Miki won first prize in the country's Science Project Olympiad with their alternative and environmentally-friendly air freshener.

The air freshener is said to have a natural fragrance of herbs and is good for human health because it doesn't contain any harmful chemicals like other freshener products on the market.

The girls collected cow dung from a cattle farm in Lamongan regency of East Java and left it to ferment for three days.

Secondly, they extracted water from the cow dung and mixed it with coconut water.

Then the liquid was distilled to remove any impurities; the end product is a liquid air freshener with a natural aroma of herbs from digested cow food.

The girls will go on to represent Indonesia at the International Environment Project Olympiad race (INEPO) in Istanbul.

Six killed bar shooting

Six killed bar shooting, (Reuters) - Two men armed with a machine gun and a handgun opened fire in a bar on the outskirts of the Mexican tourist resort of Cancun on Thursday, killing six people and wounding five, the office of the state's attorney general said.

Cancun, a major tourist destination on Mexico's Caribbean coast, has largely escaped the drug-related violence that has racked Acapulco, a faded tourist hot spot on the Pacific coast.

Last month, six Spanish women were raped by hooded gunmen who forced their way into the Acapulco beach house the women had rented.

Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto has vowed to reduce the violence that soared after his predecessor, Felipe Calderon, launched an assault on drug cartels.

More than 70,000 people have been killed in drug-related violence in Mexico since 2007.
