Girl at center of debate over brain death dies, mother says (Jahi McMath)

Source: LA Times

A girl at the center of the medical and religious debate over brain death has died after surgery in New Jersey, her mother said Thursday.

Nailah Winkfield said doctors declared her daughter Jahi McMath dead from excessive bleeding and liver failure after an operation to treat an intestinal issue.

McMath had been in a vegetative state since December 2013, when a California coroner ruled that the 13-year-old girl died after suffering irreversible brain damage during an operation to remove her tonsils.

Winkfield refused to accept the conclusion and moved the girl to New Jersey, where she has been kept on life support and received care. The state accommodates religions that don’t recognize brain death.

Poor girl can finally rest in peace

why has the stormy Daniels case gone quiet?

It seems to me there was a tweet from avenatti saying they were trying to threaten him or something like that I can't remember exactly..... And now we haven't heard anymore on it for a little bit, and he's taking up the case of the kids which is great.... But I'm just curious were their threats successful? Or what's happening...

Truth Pledge

Just came across this and wanted to share - pretty cool movement - seems its just getting started but - we got to start somewhere right?

I've only spent about 5 minutes there so if its secretly the evil empire let me know lol


elder Care help?

I am hoping that some of you are well-versed in Elder Care financing in Washington State... I'm at a loss at the moment....
My mother is currently in a nursing home in Tacoma I believe the place charges about $4,000 a month of which 3000 is paid by Medicare so my mom has to pay a thousand a month...
My grandmother had been paying that for her but my grandmother passed away on April 26th. It appears she didn't leave any money behind from Mom so now we have to figure out how Mom can pay her bills and pay her rent on her $900 Social Security....
I suppose one option is she just stops paying the bills..... I could probably chip in the other hundred a month and she didn't least be able to sustain.... But there's got to be another way.... The medical bills are going to pile up and they already have.... There's a ton of bills from Grandma's passing..... And we are in the midst of wrapping up Grandma's life... But now I'm extremely worried about my mother..... She has to be in a facility because she has to have care..... She can't stay with family.... We're going to sell the trailer they were living in before but that's only a few thousand....
I'm really scared for my mom right now 😟

Have any of you found some way around these things?

Mortgage lending referral in WA?

I'm not sure if this is the right place but, I'm getting ready, finally, to buy another house after giving my last one to my ex hub.
I'll qualify as a first time home buyer again, which is helpful, credit is good, income is good...

I want to actually choose a lender that aligns with my progressive values, that is ethical, that is customer-centric....someone who wont bait and switch me at the last minute....

is there such a thing?

stormy ever been to Russia?

I'm wondering if she'd been one of the pee girls and is here to keep Trump in line...

But I Might be way off base...idk

when do manafort and Gates get arrested?

And where are they?

Stop Workplace Bullying - Call To Action!

Hello all -

Today we march to Westlake Park in hopes of changing the world for the better, not only for women but for all.
I will be there with a group of co-workers, asking for help in stopping workplace bullying!

What is workplace bullying?

We currently have a Senate Bill 5423 that will be reviewed by the Labor and Commerce Committee next week. In order to make a bill into law it has to first pass out of committee with a recommendation to pass. If it does not pass out of committee it dies and we will have to reintroduce the bill again next year.

Here is the actual bill SB 5423

We also have a House Bill 2888 that will be reviewed very soon!

Here is the actual bill HB 2888

Help us ensure that this important legislation gets passed out of their respective committees by letting the members of each committee know that this issue is important to you and you want them to pass it out of committee with a YES VOTE!

NOW is the time to get involved!

Here’s how you can help with the Senate Bill 5423:

Call each of the Labor & Commerce Committee Members in this link and voice your support for SB 5423 asking them to pass the bill out of committee with the amendments suggested,
Send an email to each of the committee members asking them to pass the bill out of committee with the amendments suggested. Here it is drafted for you.
Forward the attached email to all your friends and colleagues asking them to do the same.
What else can you do? Join the Coalition for a Respectful Workplace!
