A Utah girl is finally going home after spending the first three years of her life in a hospital in Ohio.
Zariah Donovan was born prematurely at just 23 weeks, six days gestation in September 2015.
During her time in the NICU, she developed such a serious lung disease that doctors told her parents, Shawn Donovan and Vilayvone Thipsouvan, that she had a zero percent chance of survival.
Zariah was took weak to go home and no medical center near the family could provide the care that she needed.
The family learned of a specialized program at Nationwide Children’s Hospital – 1,700 miles away – and agreed to admit her.
After years spent in physical, occupational and speech therapy, Zariah’s lungs finally grew strong enough and she was cleared to go home.

In 2017, Mystery Science Theater 3000 returned to television thanks to Netflix and a crowdfunding campaign that raised almost $5.8 million. The reboot brought Joel Hodgson back to the weirdly wonderful show he created in 1988, and appeared on until 1993, in which a human stranded in space and his robot companions watch and make fun of really bad movies.
Now, to mark the show’s 30th anniversary, six new episodes will hit the streaming service on Thanksgiving, so fans can binge on movies that were turkeys after filling themselves with actual turkey.
From ‘Will Grace’ to ‘It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia’.
But that’s not all Hodgson has been up to. This fall, he and new MST3K star Jonah Ray joined forces for a series of live shows around the U.S., and Hodgson

Twenty-five years ago this month, the world met Fox Mulder (David Duchovny), the brilliant and “spooky” FBI agent who not only catalogued but “wanted to believe” in paranormal phenomena, and Dana Scully (Gillian Anderson), the doctor-turned-agent whose skepticism the Bureau entrusted to keep Mulder in check.
The X-Files debuted on September 10, 1993, to decent ratings and favorable reviews. But the sci-fi drama quickly became a hit, eventually spawning two big-screen movies and two revival seasons.
In a genre oft-dominated by men, these girls show the boys who’s boss.
So how does that very first episode hold up? From a narrative standpoint, it stands the tests of time. Production-wise, though, it definitely shows its age.
Read on for the seven most ’90s things about the X-Files pilot.

A Philadelphia man picked up his 11-year-old daughter from the bus stop for the very first time this week, after spending most of her young life in prison for a murder he didn’t commit.
Dontia Patterson was freed Wednesday after the Philadelphia District Attorney’s Office admitted to bungling the 2007 shooting investigation of Patterson’s friend Antwine Jackson. A judge exonerated him and released him from the house arrest he had been under since March, CBS News reported. He spent 11 years behind bars.
In an “egregious example” of misconduct, police and prosecutors concealed evidence that would’ve likely kept Patterson, 29, out of prison, according to a court motion filed by the district attorney’s office and obtained by Oxygen.com.
Jackson was murdered on a street corner near Patterson’s home. At the time, Patterson rushed outside to be by his friend’s side.
Police and bystanders found him there crying out over his friend’s death. This

Prosecutors have charged a man for the murders of two Christian camp counselors in California from nearly 14 years ago.
Shaun Gallon, 38, is the suspect for the 2004 deaths of Jason Allen, 26, and Lindsey Cutshall, 22. The two were counselors at a camp near Sacramento who went on a three-day sightseeing trip to the coast and never came back. They were found dead in their sleeping bags on a secluded beach at the mouth of the Russian River in northern California in August 2004.
Gallon was arrested in March 2017 for allegedly murdering his brother in their home in the small town of Forestville, according to the Sonoma County Sheriff Steve Freitas.
Gallon had been a person of interest since early in the investigation of the campers’ murders, according to Freitas, but investigators never had enough evidence to charge him.
Officers questioned Gallon about the

Two people were indicted this week for allegedly killing a man more than 17 years ago to collect a life insurance policy: His wife and his best friend, who ended up marrying each other.
Denise Williams was arrested Tuesday and charged for the December 2000 death of former husband Mike Williams. An indictment says she and her husband’s best friend Brian Winchester planned the murder for nine months and passed it off as an accident. Winchester also allegedly pulled the trigger, a grand jury found, according to the Tallahassee Democrat.
Williams pleaded not guilty to charges of first-degree murder, conspiracy to commit murder and accessory after the fact. She is being held without bond.
Winchester and Denise Williams have known each other since pre-school and married five years after Mike’s disappearance. Winchester is currently serving 20 years for kidnapping Denise Williams at gunpoint in 2016, after their marriage fell apart. Winchester said

A Tennessee man who dressed up as the iconic superhero for a children’s hospital was sentenced Monday to 105 years in prison for the production and transportation of child pornography.
