Kate Middleton to 'use hypnosis during birth of third child' as midwives at her hospital train in new birthing technique before royal arrival
The mother of two is due to give birth in April to a sibling for Prince George and Princess Charlotte.
Much like her previous two pregnancies, Kate Middleton has suffered from extreme morning sickness, called Hyperemesis Gravidarum, and was forced to cancel planned appearances in the early stages of her pregnancy.
It’s now been reported that 36 year old Kate could turn to hypnobirthing to ease labour.
According to the Sunday Times, midwives at St. Mary’s Hospital in Paddington, London are being trained in the new birthing technique called hyponobirthing.
The family of Ngoc Truong, a four-year Navy veteran who recently passed away after a battle with cancer, are dealing with another tragedy. According to them, Truong’s mother was denied a visa to come to the U.S. to attend his funeral.
“He’s already done for this country, but what has this country done for him? What did this country do for him?” Truong’s father said in an interview with WREG.
Truong died Dec. 17 after suddenly being diagnosed with leukemia. Services were held Dec. 26. He was 22 years old.
Rock legend Eric Clapton has revealed that he is going deaf. In a recent interview on BBC Radio 2’s “Steve Wright in the Afternoon,” the award-winning guitarist spoke about how both his hearing loss and tinnitus — a hearing disorder that can cause high-pitched ringing in the ears — are affecting his career.
“I mean, I’m going deaf, I’ve got tinnitus, my hands just about work,” he said. “I mean, I’m hoping that people will come along and see me just because, or maybe more than because I’m a curiosity. I know that is part of it. It’s amazing to myself that I’m still here.”
Fire swiftly engulfed a shuttle boat Sunday afternoon used to ferry patrons to a casino ship off Florida’s Gulf Coast, forcing the crew and dozens of passengers to jump into chilly waters close to shore, authorities said.
Fifteen people complaining of chest pain, smoke inhalation and other minor injuries were taken to the hospital to be checked, authorities said, adding no injuries were life-threatening after the huge fire consumed the boat close to a residential neighborhood.
Port Richey Chief of Police Gerard DeCanio said all 50 passengers and the crew reached land safely as the fast-spreading flames devoured the shuttle boat. Huge flames leaped from the vessel and a dark plume of black smoke cut across sunny skies on an unusually chilly winter day in the Tampa Bay region.
“It looked pretty dramatic because the shuttle boat burned really fast,” DeCanio told The Associated Press by phone.
Fifty people jumped more than 10 feet into frigid winter waters after the shuttle ferrying them to a casino ship off the Florida Gulf Coast caught fire Sunday, authorities said.
All 50 people made it safely to shore, the Coast Guard, which is leading the investigation, told NBC News on Sunday night. Fifteen of them were treated at hospitals for minor injuries and as a precaution for hypothermia, police said.
The shuttle caught fire at about 3:30 p.m. ET as it was making its way to the Tropical Breeze Casino Cruise, said Beth Fifer, the casino's assistant chief executive.

It’s important to have your core idea fleshed out before setting up a consultation — unless you’re coming in for lettering, which often only requires you to decide on a font. During the consultation, your artist can work out the finer details. You can show them any images you’ve saved as inspiration and figure out placement and pricing.
Depending on the time they have available, the artist may create a mock-up of your tattoo on the spot or a few days later, but ultimately, the final results will depend on several factors:
how much of your body you want to dedicate to the art
how feasible the tattoo placement is
how well the colors you want will show up on your skin tone
how much time you want to spend with the artist
Here’s more on what you should consider when designing your next tattoo:
If you feel depressed in January, it’s not just in your head.
Seasonal affective disorder (SAD) and post-holiday blues can hit hard after the parties and tinsel fade away.
The disorder, in fact, affects at least 10 million people in the United States.
Experts say that these January blues can be caused by a number of reasons.
However, there are also many life-changing ways to avoid these seasonal downswings.
“You can shift your thought patterns, so you won’t be subjected to them,” Dr. Don Mordecai, Kaiser Permanente’s national leader for mental and behavioral health, told Healthline.

A Russian serial killer dubbed the "werewolf" may have killed as many as 82 women in a historic reign of terror, authorities say.
Mikhail Popkov was first arrested in 2012 and sentenced to life in prison for the murder of 22 women. He later confessed to 20 more slayings, and the newest charges against him include 60 counts of murder.
Popkov, from the eastern Siberian city of Angarsk, might be Russia's biggest serial killer in the last 100 years. Cops have for years been investigating murders in the Irkutsk region where dozens of women were raped and killed.

President Trump perplexed political pundits when he boasted Thursday that he has “a very good relationship” with North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un, while in the same breath deriding his former right hand man Stephen Bannon as a traitor.
In a sweeping interview with the Wall Street Journal, Trump explained that him calling the North Korean leader a “maniac,” a “bad dude,” “short and fat” and “rocket man” is part of a broader strategy to win over his enemies.

The Psychology of Inequality ( Researchers find that much of the damage done by being poor comes from feeling poor )
n 2016, the highest-paid employee of the State of California was Jim Mora, the head coach of U.C.L.A.’s football team. (He has since been fired.) That year, Mora pulled in $3.58 million. Coming in second, with a salary of $2.93 million, was Cuonzo Martin, at the time the head coach of the men’s basketball team at the University of California, Berkeley.
Victor Khalil, the chief dentist at the Department of State Hospitals, made six hundred and eighty-six thousand dollars; Anne Neville, the director of the California Research Bureau, earned a hundred and thirty-five thousand dollars; and John Smith, a seasonal clerk at the Franchise Tax Board, earned twelve thousand nine hundred dollars.
I learned all this from a database maintained by the Sacramento Bee. The database, which is open to the public, is searchable by name and by department, and contains precise salary information for the more than three hundred thousand people who work for California. Today, most state employees probably know about the database. But that wasn’t the case when it was first created, in 2008. This made possible an experiment.

Malaysia signed a deal on Wednesday to pay a U.S. seabed exploration firm up to $50 million if it finds the missing Malaysia Airlines aircraft MH370 in a new search area in the Southern Indian ocean.
The disappearance of the aircraft en route from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing in March 2014 with 239 people aboard ranks among the world's greatest aviation mysteries.
