Mother reveals her six-week-old son died just four days after being struck down by MENINGITIS

A heartbroken mother has revealed her six-week-old son died just four days after being struck down by meningitis. 

Georgia Higginbottom cradled her baby, Oscar Nally, for eight hours until he died, after his life support machine was switched off. 

Miss Higginbottom’s only child had no visible symptoms of meningitis, such as the tell-tale rash. She took him to hospital after hearing a ‘shrill cry’.

Pictures from a scan showed ‘every single part of his brain was black’, and he was diagnosed with Group B streptococcal meningitis, the main cause of meningitis in babies.

Ahead of Oscar’s funeral today, Miss Higginbottom, from Blackpool, is warning other parents to be vigilant and spot the signs of meningitis.

Oxygen’s ‘The Disappearance of Phoenix Coldon’ Explores The Dilemma Of Being Black, Female And Missing

Nearly seven years ago on the afternoon of December 18, 2011, bubbly 23-year-old Phoenix Coldon backed out of her St. Louis-area driveway to never be seen again.

A few hours later, authorities found her car on an East St. Louis street still running with her keys in the ignition. While the college student’s glasses and shoes were in the vehicle, Phoenix herself was nowhere to be found.

Frantic to find out what happened to their beloved daughter, her parents, Goldia and Lawrence Coldon, pleaded with law enforcement, but the investigation was slow to start with the national media paying her story little mind.

Sadly, as many of us know, the type of treatment Phoenix experienced isn’t new or rare when it comes to African-American women who go missing. Too often, national news ignores and

Mother’s joy as her baby survives being born TWO DAYS before abortion limit

A ‘miracle’ baby survived being born two days before the abortion limit – despite weighing only 1lb 4oz.

Anita Hyams, from Southend, Essex, gave birth to her third child, William, after just 23 weeks and five days. 

Doctors devastatingly told her that he would not be resuscitated unless he had a heartbeat because he was born so prematurely.  

But William defied all of the odds. Now 16 months, he is healthy and thriving, after spending four months in hospital.

Mrs Hyams, 38, and her police detention officer husband Dan, 36, are now calling for the 24 week abortion limit to be lowered.

Amy Adams Talks Being ‘Devastated’ by the ‘Sharp Objects’ Series Finale

Just because Amy Adams is capable of radiating the kind of dazzling light reserved for Disney princesses doesn’t mean she can’t access her dark side.

And on HBO’s Sharp Objects, which concludes August 26, the Oscar nominee has been doing exactly that as Camille Preaker, a reporter who returns to her hometown to investigate a pair of murders and ends up unearthing secrets about her own warped family. Adams offers a postcard from the edge.

The actress also teases her character’s relationship with Chief Vickery.

Is this the most damaged character you’ve played?

Amy Adams: She’s very different. A lot of my characters have had [complex] internal lives, but Camille definitely has the most outwardly visible demons. She’s trying hard to conquer them, and she’s not

Mario Batali Is Being Investigated By The NYPD For Allegedly Assaulting A Woman In A ‘Rape Room’

The NYPD is investigating celebrity chef Mario Batali after accusations emerged that he drugged and sexually assaulted a woman in a private room at a posh Manhattan restaurant.

The woman told 60 Minutes Sunday that, while she worked at Batali’s Babbo restaurant in 2005, he invited her to a party at the Spotted Pig, a restaurant with celebrity investors including Jay-Z and Michael Stipe.

The Spotted Pig featured an exclusive third-floor playroom where celebrities can party in private, according to the New York Times. But it earned a notorious nickname: the “Rape Room.” 

The woman said Batali brought her there and started kissing her before she blacked out. She said she woke up near dawn on the floor, surrounded by broken bottles, with deep scratches in one of her legs.

“The first thing I think is ‘I’ve been drugged.’ That was the first thing I thought, that I’ve been assaulted,” the woman told 60 Minutes. 

She said she

Backlogged Rape Kits Are Finally Being Tested. Now What? | Crime …

As social awareness of the ubiquitousness of sexual assault becomes a discussion topic accross the country, a far more obscure issue pertaining to the widespread mishandling of sexual violence is now receiving some much-needed attention. Decades worth of rape kits, which number in the tens of thousands, are finally being tested. But now a bigger question is presenting itself: what are the next steps in dealing with the results? An extensive Washington Post report by writer Jessica Contrera details the substantial issues surrounding the rape kits.
