The fatwa, or legal ruling from an Islamic authority, was reportedly issued by Saudi judge Abu Said Aljazrawi, who sits on ISIS’s sharia board. According to the Iraqi news group Mosul Eye, jihadists have carried out “more than 38 confirmed cases of killing babies with congenital deformities and Down’s Syndrome, aged between one week to three months. They were killed by either lethel [sic] injection or suffocation.” The executions are known to have occurred in both Syria and Mosul, Iraq.

Alzheimer's Reading Room: Problems with Balance, Walking, Falling an Early Sign of Dementia

Bob DeMarco Alzheimer's Reading Room When I first came to Delray Beach to take care of my mother, she was falling down all the time. Once, I found her laying in the parking lot and she could not get up. She was shaking like a leaf. Another time she fell down and broke her little finger. Related Articles This might sound hard to believe but after I got my mother into the gym, she did not fall once for over seven years, and not until the last three weeks of her life. I took my mother into the gym for the first time when she was 88 years old. Our exercise included the treadmill, a series of stand up-sit down exercises I developed, and weight training on the kinds of machines you normally see in a gym.

Two of Campbell’s children have taken legal action against the singer’s wife, Kim Campbell, claiming she has prevented them from being involved in the 78-year-old's medical care. A family feud also involved broke out last year among relatives of radio legend Casey Kasem.

My daughter, who lost her battle with mental illness, is still the bravest person I know

Fuller April 20 I lost my darling daughter Natalie to mental illness last month. She killed herself a few weeks short of her 29th birthday by stepping in front of a train in Baltimore. Natalie and I wrote a book together when she was 16: “Promise You Won’t Freak Out: A Teenager Tells Her Mother the Truth About Boys, Booze, Body Piercing, and Other Touchy Topics (and Mom Responds).” The idea of a teenager telling the truth about her secrets was such a startling concept that we were feature-page headliners in the Baltimore Sun and about two dozen other newspapers, went on TV coast to coast, including on one of the morning shows, and got paid to give speeches. In the book, we used a device to signal whenever a wild turn was about to take place: And then . . . . The book was published to great reviews the week before Natalie finished high school.
