I'd like to know how long Darren Wilson hung around looking

at the body of Michael Brown.

When did he leave the scene and go to the hospital to "checked out?"
When did he write up his report?
What timeline does the public have on Wilson's activities?

Aren't there photos of Darren Wilson hanging aound Michael Brown' body in the street

for a time after Wilson killed him?
I don't know how long he remained on the scene, but somebody knows, maybe even some who post here.

Those photos need to be examined closely.
Examine Wilson's eyes in those photos.
Examine Wilson's facefor swollen features.

Let us know what you find.

I understand the principles of Church opposition to in vitro fertilization

and the destruction of the surplus embryos, but I have not heard a solution to the problem of abandoned frozen embryos.

IOW, are abandoned embryos to remain frozen in perpetuity unless "adopted" by willing women who will bear them until birth and then either keep and raise them or give them for adoption?

If they are to remain frozen after abandonment, who will assume the cost of maintaining them in that state?

Pope Francis has phoned the family of James Foley,

according to a Vatican official who gave permission to Fr. James Martin, SJ to share this news via Fr. Martin's blog.

The Pope has had tragedy strike his own extended family within the past few days in the deaths of his nephew's wife and two children in an auto accident.

The problem I have with the Church's prohibition of embryonic stem cells

is that there are untold thousands of these that are frozen and never claimed by the people who produced them. There is obviously a cost to store these frozen embryos and at some point, when the "parents" are no longer willing or able to pay to store them, I presume they are destroyed or left to die.

What does the Church say is the proper procedure for them when the embryos have been abandoned?

Does the Church really believe that a sufficient number of persons will come forward to "adopt" them, in other words, tens of thousands of women will take these unknown, unclaimed embryos into their wombs and bring them to term as babies?

Is that at all realistic? Have you ever heard a plea from the Church for women to do that? Perhaps nuns should come forward to bear these embryonic "children?"

If someone here has better insight into this situation than me, please come forward and inform me. Thanks.

Bingo!

And I am pleased to not be irritated.
However, my list predates yours by ca two months.

DEpending on how far the disease has advanced, the answer varies.

The patient may have some good days interspersed with the bad; the memory may be somewhat sharper even at certain times of the day.
However, there may come a time when certain memories are lost forever.

I have read and even seen videos that music that was once familiar to a patient, and to which he/she may sing along, can , in effect, kick-start the memory for a brief period. Perhaps that would work with seeing known objects or places.

The return of memory would be temporary.

Me too. Was planning on Oct., but son just announced

that he'll be getting married in early Nov., so I'll wait until after that.
Every one says it's a piece of cake, but I'm concerned about the drops that will have to be put in the eye every four hours.
Also, how long will it be until I can safely drive?

Good luck, trof and elleng.

He is a realist.

After about 75 yrs, a person of any kind of reflection, realizes that life can end very soon.
