In a bizarre coincidence, a Family Guy episode featuring Robin Williams which included a failed suicide attempt aired minutes before the announcement of the actor’s death.

We might be looking at the beginning of yet another Obama administration scandal…

The Pentagon’s chief watchdog warned Tuesday that the military’s criminal investigative agencies have mishandled about a dozen child sexual assault cases and made recommendations ranging from enhancing guidelines for collecting evidence to ensuring that victims receive the proper paperwork.

The inspector general evaluated 163 Military Criminal Investigation Organization investigations of sexual assaults against children that were closed in 2012 to determine whether the investigations were consistent with military policy and procedures.

cuddlecotWhile it is largely unknown what causes fetal death at this stage of a woman’s pregnancy, these are some factors that may contribute: placental problems, birth defects, poor fetal growth, infections, umbilical cord accidents, and chronic health conditions in the pregnant mother.

However, regardless of the cause of death, losing a baby is always a devastating experience for a mother and her family. Many doctors and psychologists suggest that families spend time with their baby before they are sent to the morgue. This is important because it can bring the family closure and time to form a lasting bond with their baby.

In the past, this has been difficult for hospitals to facilitate because warm rooms cause the baby’s condition to deteriorate quickly. This is why the new cuddle cot invention, or “Moses-basket” is so beneficial for bereaved families…”
