Mississippi inmate in buttocks injection killing has died

Tue, 16 Jan 2018 00:42:29 UT

JACKSON, Miss. (AP) — A Mississippi inmate convicted in 2014 of the death of a Georgia woman through illicit silicone buttocks injections has died. The Mississippi Department of Corrections said in a statement Monday that an autopsy will be conducted on the remains of Tracy Lynn Garner , who died Sunday. She was 58 and had served less than 3 ½ years of a life sentence. Garner was convicted by a jury of depraved heart murder in the death of Karima Gordon, an Atlanta area resident who died eight days after receiving the injections in Jackson in 2012. Depraved heart murder is a killing caused by reckless disregard for human life.



CVS Pharmacy promises to end touchups of its beauty images

Mon, 15 Jan 2018 22:06:43 UT

NEW YORK (AP) — Pharmacy giant CVS said it will stop significant touchups of images used in its advertising for beauty products. The company said it has a responsibility to think about sending messages of unrealistic body images to girls and young women. CVS Health Corp. said Monday it will not "materially" alter photos used in stores, on websites and on social media by changing a model's shape, size, skin or eye color or wrinkles. CVS, which was founded in Lowell, Massachusetts, in 1963 but now is based in Woonsocket, Rhode Island, said it will use a watermark to highlight images that have not been materially altered beginning this year.



Army vet sues VA over scalpel left in body after surgery

Mon, 15 Jan 2018 21:43:59 UT

NEW HAVEN, Conn. (AP) — An Army veteran who says someone left a scalpel inside him after surgery is suing a veterans affairs hospital. Bridgeport resident Glenford Turner says the scalpel was only discovered years later, after he suffered from long-term abdominal pain. He sued the VA in U.S. District Court last week, seeking unspecified compensatory damages. Court papers say Turner had surgery at the VA hospital in West Haven in 2013. Nearly four years later, he went back to the VA with dizziness and severe abdominal pain. An X-Ray showed there was a scalpel inside his body. Turner had to undergo surgery to remove the scalpel. His lawyer, Joel Faxon, said doctors confirmed it was the same one.



My guns or my ganja? Firearm-owning pot fans face a choice

Sun, 14 Jan 2018 17:21:22 UT

HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) — The federal government says grass and guns don't mix, and that is putting gun owners who use marijuana — and the strongly pro-gun-rights administration of President Donald Trump — in a potentially uncomfortable position. As gun-loving Pennsylvania becomes the latest state to operate a medical marijuana program, with the first dispensary on track to begin sales next month, authorities are warning patients that federal law bars marijuana users from having guns or ammunition. "They're going to have to make a choice," said John T. Adams, president of the Pennsylvania District Attorneys Association. "They can have their guns or their marijuana, but not both.



Recall of French baby milk products extended to 83 countries

Sun, 14 Jan 2018 14:03:33 UT

PARIS (AP) — The head of French dairy company Lactalis says that a recall of baby milk products because of a salmonella scare has been extended to 83 countries from around 30. In an interview with French weekly Le Journal du Dimanche, the president of Lactalis, Emmanuel Besnier, said that more than 12 million boxes of infant milk products are now concerned. They represent all lots from the Lactalis factory in Craon, northwest France, where the salmonella bacteria was discovered in December. The move comes after Besnier met Friday with France's economy minister — and a bungled recall operation whose responsibility remains unclear.



Trump gets 'excellent health" report from WH doctor

Sat, 13 Jan 2018 05:53:31 UT

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump's White House physician declared him in "excellent health" after the president received his first medical checkup at Walter Reed military hospital on Friday, undergoing a physical examination amid suggestions in a recent book and by his detractors that he's mentally unfit. Dr. Ronny Jackson, in a statement released by the White House, said the examination "went exceptionally well. The President is in excellent health and I look forward to briefing some of the details on Tuesday." Trump spent about three hours at the medical facility in Bethesda, Maryland, outside Washington, for the Friday afternoon checkup, his first as president, before departing for Florida for the weekend.
