Krysta Davis was four months pregnant when she received the heart-shattering news: Her baby had a rare disorder and was expected to live only minutes after she was born.
Doctors gave Davis and her boyfriend, Dereck Lovett, just two options. They could induce labor immediately or have the baby and donate her organs. Davis and Lovett decided on the latter... Their daughter, Rylei, was expected to live about 30 minutes after birth. Instead, she survived one week.
Rylei was born on Christmas Eve and took her last breath on New Year's Eve. After Rylei died, her heart valves were given to two children and her lungs were donated to a research hospital.
President Trump on Sunday defended how he spends his work days after facing criticism for the amount of unstructured “Executive Time” in his daily schedules, claiming he works harder than most of his predecessors and puts in “very long hours.”
“The media was able to get my work schedule, something very easy to do, but it should have been reported as a positive, not negative. When the term Executive Time is used, I am generally working, not relaxing. In fact, I probably work more hours than almost any past President,” Trump tweeted.
Gallup asked the whole population of Latin America. There are 33 countries in Latin America and the Caribbean. Roughly 450 million adults live in the region. Gallup asked them, "Would you like to move to another country permanently if you could?"
A whopping 27% said "yes." So this means roughly 120 million would like to migrate somewhere.
The next question Gallup asked was, "Where would you like to move?"
Of those who want to leave their Latin American country permanently, 35% said they want to go to the United States. The Gallup analytics estimate is that 42 million want to come to the U.S.
Beef exports totaled 112,842 metric tons (mt) in November, up 1 percent from a year ago, while value climbed 6 percent to $709.2 million. For January through November, exports reached 1.24 million mt, up 8 percent year-over-year and 6 percent above the record pace of 2011. At $7.63 billion, beef export value was up 16 percent and has already broken the full-year record set in 2017 ($7.27 billion).
Beef export value per head of fed slaughter is also on a record pace, averaging $322.97 in November (up 5 percent from a year ago) and $320.72 during the first 11 months of 2018 (up 14 percent). Exports accounted for 13.1 percent of total November beef production and 10.9 percent for muscle cuts, both steady with November 2017. For January through November, exports equated to 13.4 percent of total production and 11.1 percent for muscle cuts – up from 12.8 percent and 10.3 percent, respectively, in 2017. These numbers highlight the strong international demand for U.S. beef as exports are accounting for a larger share of growing U.S. production and are fetching higher prices, with some U.S. cuts trading at record prices in Asia.
A carnival in Viareggio, Italy featured a massive statue of President Donald J. Trump dressed in power armor from the Warhammer 40k games and books, referencing the popular “God Emperor Trump” meme. The huge statue stood over four stories high, and featured speakers blaring the metal song “Carolus Rex” by Sabaton.
Italy’s fascination with President Trump and the global populist uprising has been well noted. Italy’s resurgent right wing populist parties have made historic gains in recent elections, and are taking steps to end the endless migration to the Italian peninsula.

Senator Richard Burr, The Chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee, just announced that after almost two years, more than two hundred interviews, and thousands of documents, they have found NO COLLUSION BETWEEN TRUMP AND RUSSIA! Is anybody really surprised by this?
Sen. Richard Burr (R-N.C.) told CBS News on Thursday that "based on the evidence" his committee has seen so far, there is no reason to suggest that members of the Trump campaign and the Russian government were working together during the election.
The committee is preparing to release its final report on 2016 election interference.
"If we write a report based upon the facts that we have, then we don't have anything that would suggest there was collusion by the Trump campaign and Russia," Burr told CBS.
They had already been treated with, and became resistant to, an average of three different types of treatment.
THIS is the encouraging part. These patients had already tried other, more established, treatments, without success.
As is common in phase I/II, these patients were likely out of choices, and advanced in their cancer. This technology, ADC's (Antibody Drug Conjugates), absolutely can be called "Trojan horse" or "Smart drug" or "Targeted", or whatever sensationalist layman term the media wants, because of how it works.
