Dying baby Avery's bucket list

Beautiful and adorable 5-month-old daughter Avery Lynn Canahuati has a rare and incurable genetic disorder.
She's such a cutie!!

Avery and Mom - Laura

Avery was diagnosed with spinal muscular atrophy, a genetic disorder that attacks spinal neurons and progressively debilitates muscle function. Avery's was Type 1, the most severe kind, and doctors told her parents, Laura and Mike Canahuati of Houston, that their little girl had only 18 months to live.

"We had several days of sitting in shock and crying and then we pulled ourselves out of that," Laura said. "Since we had such a short time, we knew we wanted to make the best of it."
 To cherish every moment with Avery, the Canahuatis created " Avery's Bucket List," a blog written from Avery's perspective where they chronicle her world and track their family adventures, checking things off from the bucket list as they go.

The bucket list includes milestones in every child's life - from sitting up, kissing her mom and dad, to having a birthday party, meeting Santa Claus, losing a tooth, visiting college and more.
Avery's story and bucket list has struck a chord online. Since the Canahuatis started the blog earlier this month, it has racked up close to 500,000 page views, Mike said, with people as far as Malaysia, Hong Kong, Germany and New Zealand visiting it.
"When we saw how many people it was reaching in a few days, that's when we realized we could really get the word out on SMA and spread the word as much as we could," said Laura, who worked as a kindergarten teacher before giving birth to Avery, an 11-11-11 baby.
SMA is the No. 1 genetic killer of children under the age of 2 in the U.S., but most people don't know about it, Laura explained. An estimated one in 40 people are carriers of SMA. If both parents are carriers, like Laura and Mike are, there's a 25 percent chance of their child having SMA.
Laura and Mike urge all parents to talk to their OB GYNs and get tested to see if they are a carrier for SMA.

Avery has already lost the ability to move her legs. She can barely move her arms and doctors say eventually she will be unable to move her head or breathe without the help of a respirator. Last week, she had a G-Tube put in so she can be fed through a line in her stomach and her parents constantly monitor her oxygen levels since babies with SMA have difficulty regulating their breath.

While her parents know Avery won't be able to fulfill many of the rites of passage that are on the list, they are finding joy in what their baby can do - tasting solid foods, taking a "big girl bath," flying a kite and blowing bubbles - and are finding a way to share in some of the later milestones with her now.

Baby Avery succumbed to the disease yesterday.

May her innocent soul rest in Peace..Amen!

Woman pregnant with Nine babies

Oh my goodness!!

A woman, Karla Vanessa Perez who already has a daughter and a set of five month old triplets is now pregnant with nine children.

She said the Doctors told her she is pregnant with six girls and three boys...All nine of them, currently, living inside one woman. Na wa o.

The Mexican news station Televisa broke the news of the 32-year-old mother's record-breaking multiple pregnancy this week, and Gawker has already stamped her with the tabloid-ready nickname "nonomom."

Televisa confirmed that Karla underwent fertility treatments before her pregnancy. She is currently in a Saltillo hospital. She said she is from Coahuila originally. "I just hope that everything goes well," she told the news station.

Doctors are concentrating on making sure she has a safe delivery.
Karla's children are likely to arrive two months early, and will have to be placed in incubation until they reach a stable weight. Her scheduled C-section is reported to be May 20, unless she is in good enough shape to withstand their continued growth.

If all goes well, the next hurdle will be how to support and care, not only for her nine newborns, but for her four other young kids. For now, the family is living with her in-laws in Coahuila, Mexico, near the Texas border. "My husband doesn't make so much money as a tire fitter so I think we're going to need extra help with hospital costs and everything," she said in the interview.

She's hoping that sharing her story with the public will lead to some generosity. Already Ernesto Cepeda Valdes, the mayor of city where she lives, has made a grandiose promise. "We will be like godparents to those babies and give all the support we can," he told the news.

It's a pity she is in Mexico because if she had been here, she probably would have had her own realty TV show- like the Duggar family (19 kids and counting) and made good money. Oh well.
I hope she has a safe pregnancy and delivery and I hope like Octomom all 9 of them survive.


Just found out that this lady's story was a hoax. She was NEVER pregnant with 9 kids. She made up this story in order to gain sympathy and financial assistance from the public. Some local newspaper in Perez's Mexican town challenged her claims after they read the story. According to a reporter from El Diario de Coahuila who spoke with Perez's mother, she is not pregnant at all. A Telemundo reporter also claimed to have evidence that Perez is lying, according to MSNBC.

By this evening, Reuters, one of the first major U.S. news outlets to pick up the original story, confirmed it was a hoax.

It's not clear how many people were involved in Karla's hoax, but her story roped a lot of people in.

Ridiculous! Mom wins $3 Million lawsuit against Nutella

Seriously?? Since when did people start getting paid for their stupidity??

A San Diego Mom, Athena Hohenberg sued Ferrero, the company that manufactures the highly addictive yet apparently not terribly healthy spread Nutella for false advertising. The company settled a $3 million lawsuit filed by Athena in February 2011.

Hohenberg, it seems, believed that Nutella was a great dietary choice for her four-year-old daughter. She claimed the company's advertising particularly giving TV ad viewers the idea that Nutella was part of a nutritious breakfast led to her erroneous perception.
But when she realized the spread is about as healthy as your average Snickers bar, she decided it was time to get even and get some money.

She won the case. but 2.5 million of the 3million she won will go to anyone who has bought to up to five jars of Nutella between Jan 1, 2008, and Feb 3, 2012 (or Aug. 1, 2009, and Jan. 23, 2012 in Hohenberg's home state). Plus, you don't even have to have a receipt to get reimbursed. All you have to do is fill out the claim form on their website.

It is not just ridiculous that the mother sued them, it is very ridiculous that the judge even heard the case or followed up with it! Haba! That case should have been thrown out! It's like suing a gun store for getting shot or  suing a knife company for cutting yourself or suing a Q-Tip company for busting your own ear. It's just ridiculous!!

The jar tells you how many calories, carbs etc on the label, why didn't she flipping read it!! SMH at some people's level of ignorance!

Plus, the comercial clearly states it's part of a healthy breakfast (with banana et al), it does not say it's a healthy breakfast. When are people going to take responsibility for their actions instead of blaming every one else??
Watch the commercial below just cant fix stupid!
Only in America can someone sue a junk food company and win!! Try it in Nigeria na and see what will happen to you, lmao!!

Octomom Nadya Suleman accused of child neglect

Octomom's hairstylist, Stephanie, went to La Habra, Calif. cops Tuesday afternoon and filed a formal complaint that Octomom's 14 kids are living in horrendous conditions and are being grossly neglected.
A cop and 3 social workers from the Orange County Department of Children and Family Services went to Octomom's house Tuesday night to investigate.

Stephanie says the plumbing in the house is shot, and only one toilet is operational, TMZ reports.
This photo shows two children going to the bathroom in portable training toilets in the backyard.

What's shocking is that she locked her kids in the bedroom by propping a chair against the door so they couldn't get out while she got her hair done at the salon.

This photo shows Suleman just after she got her hair done...smh! She cant afford to feed her kids but can afford to get her hair done?? Really?

This pic shows the children's bedroom, with two cribs and a mattress. Stephanie told cops some of the kids are forced to sleep on the floor.

And there's more. This photo shows some of the kids in the backyard, barefoot, dirty and wearing no pants.

Stephanie told TMZ, "The kids are in desperate need of help, and I tried to help and she's not open to anyone helping her." She says the boys are wearing girl's clothes, they are neglected and Nadya is just incapable of caring for them

Authorities stayed at Octo's home Tuesday night for an hour-and-a-half, and determined the kids were not in danger.

There will, however, be follow-up with Children's Services

Giuliana and Bill Rancic are expecting their first child

After their years-long struggle to conceive, which included failed IVF treatments and a miscarriage; late last summer, Giuliana was set for another round of IVF when she was diagnosed with breast cancer. She eventually opted to undergo a double mastectomy, and is currently cancer free.

"We are finally having a baby!" Giuliana said emotionally. She said that they know the baby's gender, but "we're not telling anyone yet." Explaining that the baby-to-be is their biological child, the couple told Curry that they were set up with their surrogate through their doctor in Colorado after their last IVF attempt.

The woman is "a dream come true," Giuliana raved; although she lives in another state, the couple visit with her every month and accompany her on doctor's appointments.
"We see the baby grow and it's very exciting," Bill said. When doctors confirmed the surrogate was pregnant, "It was pretty much one of the best moments of my life if not the best moment of my life," Giuliana admitted. "It was pretty emotional," Bill added. "This was our last effort."

We received an incredible amount of love and prayers from viewers around the world," Giuliana told E! "and we want to take this opportunity to thank each and every one of them for their love."
Story culled from US weekly.

I am so so happy for them. They are gonna be wonderful parents. I watched their TV show and saw her struggle and go through all those IVF treatments, hospital visits, watched her cry when she got the news that the IVF treatments had failed..watched her struggle with the breast cancer diagnosis and treatments et al. Now they've been blessed with a wonderful gift.

She's a strong woman and a fighter! I'm so happy for them.

God is good!

White Nigerian

My Husband was watching a video of a guy speaking pidgin on YouTube, so I went over to check out what he was watching and.. it was a white dude speaking pidgin, I ...paused, lol. I was like...wth!! Lol.
I looked online and saw more videos of this dude. He speaks very fluent Hausa and pidgin, I just bow give the guy, lol.

His name is Mohammed Jammal and looks more like he's from the middle East, so he's not white as in Caucasian, but he's not black either, lol. He was born in Nigeria, has a Nigerian passport and lived in Nigeria until he got into High school. He then moved to London but returned after a while.

He's a comedian and a singer. He has a song in Hausa and Pidgin that doesn't sound bad at all.

Anyways, I was impressed by his proficiency in Hausa and Pidgin and thought I should share this video with y'all.


According to Ladybrille:
White Nigerian aka Mr. Jammal is a graduate with both a Bachelors and Masters degree in Global Management. He joined the entertainment industry in 2010 after he was discovered on YouTube.
His first performance was in the presence of over 5,000 people at AY Live in London’s 02indigo.

Since then White Nigerian has performed in different shows including AY Live (London, Abuja, Lagos), Lord of the Ribs with Basket Mouth in Abuja, Nigeria @ 50 in Trafalgar Square, London, P-Square’s Album Launch in Lagos and many more. While many think of White Nigerian as a comedian, he is much more.

He recently collaborated with JJC and released “one of Nigeria’s best” club songs of 2011 rapping in both Hausa and Pidgin English.

Pregnant man Thomas Beatie separates from wife after 3 kids

Thomas Beatie who was a female but legally became a man has formerly split from his wife of nine years Nancy Beatie.
This is Thomas Beaite now.

Thomas gained popularity in 2007 when he was pregnant with his first daughter Susan. He appeared in the covers of every magazine, the Internet and on my blog as the first pregnant man.

Ok, seriously I kinda feel weird calling her a him so I am gonna refer to him as a shim.
I am not being judgemental but I don't feel comfortable saying a man was pregnant.

Anyways for those who don't know shim. Thomas was born as a female in Hawaii as Tracy Lagondino in 1974. He was a Girl Scout, model, and finalist in a Miss Hawaii Teen USA pageant before he began to dress and live as a man in his 20s. She was gorgeous.. she still looks good as a man though.
This is a picture of Thomas Beatie - when he was a female
To continue with my story...In 2003, he met and legally married Nancy, a divorced mother of two who couldn't have kids any more after she had a hysterectomy.
Thomas always wanted to have kids but because Nancy couldn't have kids, shim decided to get pregnant despite legally being a man.
Tom and wife Nancy
She had all her three kids naturally but through artificial insemination by a sperm donor. He never changed his female organ to male until now.
Thomas with shim new baby
Despite his legal male status, he left his female reproductive organs in place so she could have kids.
Tom, his wife Nancy, daughter Susan 3, and their twins Austin and Jensen, who were born in 2010
I don't have a problem with him becoming a man, I just don't think it's fair for him to legally change his status  as male but still have a vagina and female organs. If you want to be a man..go all the way.

Ok..yeah he cut his breasts off and started taking male hormone treatments but shim should have stuck to being a man. Again this is my opinion but I think he's making a mockery of women by being pregnant with a beard and masculine features.

He announced during his interview on the CBS show, "The Doctors" that he has now changed his sex organ from female to male. He has an artificial penis which his estranged wife hasn't seen yet.

The interview is for the new episode of “The Doctors” which will air on Monday, May 7, on CBS.

SMH... I'll keep my opinion to myself, lol.

George Zimmerman apologized to Trayvon's family and has been granted bail

During his bail hearing today, 28 year old George Zimmerman who had chains around his waist and a bullet proof vest, took the stand and directly apologized to Trayvon Martin's family. He said he thought Trayvon was a few years younger than him and didn't know if he was armed or not. He said he had previously told his lawyers and the cops who interviewed him to convey his apologies to the Martins but decided to do so himself. He told them he was sincerely sorry for the loss of their son. Trayvon's Mom turned away but his Dad-Tracy Martin looked at George Zimmerman but didn't show any visible emotion.
George's family testified on his behalf but did so through the phone for fear of their lives. His Dad said George wasn't a violent person unless provoked. The prosecutor refuted this claim siting a period when George resisted arrest by attacking the cops who tried to arrest him. He also sited the domestic violence case filed against him by his ex girlfriend.

His lawyer asked for him to be released on a $15,000 bail, but the Prosecutor asked for $1,000,000. The Judge eventually granted him on bail for $150,000.
George Zimmerman's Passport has been surrendered so he can't legally run out of the country.
His Lawyer wanted permission for George to leave the state until the date of his trial. He made this request because his said his client's life was at stake because he's been getting death threats from various people. The Judge granted him bail and added some restrictions.
George Zimmerman must have a GPS ankle bracelet at all times.
No drinking
No drugs.
He's not allowed to carry any firearm.
He's on curfew from 6 am to 11pm.

George Zimmerman's wife; 25 year old Shelley Zimmerman who is a Nursing student now lives out of state due to several death threats on her life and that of her family.

Abducted baby found safe after Mom was shot dead

Yesterday, 28 year old Kala Marie Golden was leaving the Northwoods Pediatric Center in Spring Texas after a checkup with her son, 3 day old Keegan Schuchardt, about 2 p.m. when she and a woman in a Blue Lexus parked next to her pickup truck began to argue, Montgomery County sheriff's Lt. Dan Norris said.
 Witnesses said the woman shot Golden about seven times, took the infant and sped away. They said they heard Golden screaming "My baby" (even after she had been shot) as she tried to grab her son from the car but got ran over by the Lexus. It was also reported that there was a man in the Lexus.
As the mother lay dying in the parking lot, a description of the getaway vehicle and occupants quickly went out as an Amber Alert.

Keegan's father, Keith Schuchardt, told the Houston Chronicle that he and Golden had been married for three years. Schuchardt said he learned of the shooting because as Golden lay dying she asked another woman to call him and tell him what had happened.
"I loved her, and she loved me," Schuchardt told Houston television station KHOU. "Everything was going fine until today."
Golden's mother, Linda Golden, told the AP that she had been baby-sitting another of Kala's sons when someone at the scene called her using her daughter's cellphone. She rushed to the clinic but was unable to see her daughter because paramedics were trying to save her.

"I wanted to kiss her before they put her in the ambulance," Linda Golden said. Golden later died at a local hospital.

The 3 day old boy was found safe in an apartment around 8 p.m., about six hours after his mother.

The suspect in the killing and abduction, Verna Deann McClain, a 30-year-old mother of three, and a registered Vocational nurse has been arrested.. Verna who has her own kids ages 16, 10 and 6 years old reportedly told her sister she was about to adopt a baby. The shocking part of this whole incident to me is that this woman already had her own kids which means she knew the stress involved in being pregnant and going through labour to have a child. So why did she kill Kala? Why didn't she feel empathy for her? Why did she pick her? Was Kala targeted? So many questions which will hopefully be answered soon.

Keegan remains in custody of the state's Child Protective Service officials were looking after Keegan but that they expected the baby to soon be reunited with his father according to Montgomery County District Attorney Brett Ligon.

According to a Montgomery County arrest record, McClain, 30, admitted to shooting Golden and taking Keegan to Harris County, where the baby was subsequently found. Spring is 20 miles away from Houston. Houston  is in Harris County where the killer listed an address in the city as her home, according to jail records.
McClain gave authorities information that only the shooter would know, according to the arrest record.

She is being held without bail.

The Montgomery County Sheriff's office said in a statement that officers found Keegan with Corina Jackson, McClain's sister. Jackson told investigators that McClain told her she would need to "do the adoption," according to the county record.

Smh... there are a lot of crazy people out there. I hope Verna Deann McClain gets the sentence she deserves. Hopefully she gets the maximum and spends the rest of her life in Prison. One less crazy person out of the street.

May Kala's soul RIP...Amen!!

Pippa Middleton in gun trouble

Pippa Middleton who was invited to Paris to celebrate the 30th birthday party of her friend; aristocrat and fashion leader Vicomte Arthur de Soultrait, is in hot water.

After partying at a raucous, raunchy bash in Paris until 5 a.m., 28 yr old Pippa , took a spin with three pals in a convertible on Saturday when photographers snapped the foursome -- and, in a bizarre turn of events, the driver of the car took out what appeared to be a semi-automatic pistol and aimed it at the photographer. Sitting in the passenger seat, Middleton laughed. The man with the gun has been identified as Romain Rabillard, a 36-year-old French attorney, who ironically represents German firearms manufacturer Heckler & Koch.

The pictures were submitted to the Police who are now investigating the incident.

Pippa is been been defended by her friend Marcy de Soultrait, who attended the fancy party with her.
Soultrait, brother of designer Vicomte Arthur de Soultrait, reiterated that it was a toy gun. "Pippa is a very good friend of mine and this gun affair is very silly. It was a children's toy that the driver had in his car," he claimed. "Pippa thought it was funny. FYI: Vicomte is the guy in the blue shirt sitting behind Pippa.

If the gun is real, the incident could carry a penalty of up to seven years in jail for everyone in the car or two years if it's a fake.

"If the evidence points to her involvement, she will be prosecuted," a source told the Sun regarding Middleton. "Anybody involved in the illegal use of a handgun in public is liable to arrest and interrogation."

In France, carrying a firearm in plain view in a public place is prohibited. Civilians are not allowed to possess automatic firearms or firearms disguised as other objects (fake gun). The maximum penalty for illicit possession of firearms is seven years prison and a fine.

Pippa's friend and host; French aristocrat Vicomte Arthur de Soultrait, has issued an apology to her and an explanation for what has turned into a cause célèbre over a toy gun that was apparently jokingly pointed at paparazzi.
"Last Saturday," said de Soultrait's statement, which was released in Paris this afternoon, "I was in a car with Philippa Middleton, and we were being followed by paparazzi.
"She had been subject to constant and dangerous harassment by paparazzi throughout her time in Paris. The car was being driven by a friend of mine, whom Pippa had only met a few hours before. As a joke, my friend brandished a toy pistol in their direction.
"Obviously Philippa had no idea that he was going to do that and told him to stop immediately. She did not find it funny. "I regret enormously that this incident happened, and especially that Pippa has been subject to the subsequent attention through no fault of her own. I have apologized to her for this."

Snoop Dog and Tupac perform Live at the Coachella Festival 2012

OMG this is so surreal. I had goose bumps all over me when I watched this hologram performance of Tupac Shakur and Snoop Dogg at the Coachella festival in California on Sunday.

Rihanna, Katy Perry and other stars all took to their twitter pages to 'ooh' and 'ahh' about the performance. According to reports, the crowd went crazy when Tupac appeared to rise from the ground and emerged standing on the stage. He stalked the stage, grabbing his crotch and doing a little Crip-walking like he was really there.
OMG!! It looked so real.. Technology!! Choi!!
Watch the video below and you'll be amazed. Tupac Back!

Italian footballer dies after collapsing on the pitch

Livorno midfielder Piermario Morosini collapsed on the pitch after suffering a cardiac arrest in the 31st minute of a Serie B match against Pescara.
Medical workers attempted to resuscitate the 25-year-old on the pitch, but according to the AP, a cardiologist at the hospital to which Morosini was taken reported that he was dead upon arrival and never regained consciousness. The match was abandoned as players left the pitch in tears.
A defibrillator was used on Morosini on the pitch, but the ambulance was held up by a police car blocking its path.
Italian media reports said a car belonging to traffic police blocked the ambulance's way into the stadium and a window had to be broken so the car could be moved.

Pescara's general manager, Danilo Iannascoli, told Sky Italia ''I don't know if the ambulance was late, but I know that the entrance onto the pitch was blocked by a vehicle,'' Iannascoli said. ''Morosini collapsed, he tried to get back up but then collapsed again".
Pescara president Daniele Sebastiani said that Morosini suffered "three cardiac arrests in quick succession." Morosini repeatedly tried to get back up after his initial fall, while his teammates shouted at the referee -- who had his back to Morosini -- to have play stopped.

Morosini, a former Italian youth national team player, was on loan at Livorno from Serie A side Udinese. The Serie A club informed Italian football's governing body (the FGIC) that they would not be able to play their scheduled match against Inter on Saturday evening after such a devastating shock and all Italian matches across all divisions scheduled for this weekend were suspended a short time later.

May his soul Rest In Peace...Amen!!

Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt engaged

Congratulations to the latest engaged Hollywood couple: Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt.

After years of endless speculation, it appears that Hollywood’s Golden Couple, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, are finally engaged.
According to the several reports, it was the couple’s jeweler who spilled the beans that he designed a ring for Jolie, 36, in conjunction with Pitt, 48.

“She is wearing the ring,” Rebecca Moscal, a rep for Beverly Hills jeweler Robert Procop told Life and Style magazine. “ I can confirm that they are engaged.”

"Yes, it's confirmed," Cynthia Pett-Dante, Pitt's manager, told USA TODAY in a statement. "It is a promise for the future, and their kids are very happy. There's no date set at this time." And yes, she confirms that Pitt designed the ring.

"Brad had a specific vision for this ring, which he realized over a yearlong collaboration with Robert. He wanted every aspect of it to be perfect, so Robert was able to locate a diamond of the finest quality and cut it to an exact custom size and shape to suit Angelina's hand," Procop said in a statement. "Brad was always heavily involved, overseeing every aspect of the creative design evolution. The side diamonds are specially cut to encircle her finger. Each diamond is of the highest gem quality."

Hopefully, this will make their relationship stronger. I've seen/heard a couple of awesome Hollywood relationships that have fallen apart as soon as marriage was introduced. I don't know if it's the sense of 'entitlement' that drives the wedge between them or a sense of being trapped. Marriage should make your feelings deeper and stronger, not the opposite so I hope they stay together forever!

I love these two and their 'UN' brood, lol.
Brangelina and their 6 kids.
