The Ribble Valley-based graphic designer and branding expert said: “I was seeking a business coach for me and this ran in parallel with the fact that working very closely with small business owners they would sometimes come to me with things that were not branding and marketing-related and I didn’t feel equipped to help them - things like work life … [Read more...] about Can coaching change your life for the better?

A surgeon has been fined $US3,000 for removing a woman’s kidney because he believed it was a tumour. Ramon Vazquez, who was tasked with creating the incision on Maureen Pacheco’s back, removed her healthy kidney without her consent because he believed it was a cancerous tumour. Vazquez did not read Pacheco’s medical records before the operation. A Florida surgeon has been fined $US3,000 for removing a woman’s kidney because he believed it was a tumour, the Palm Beach Post reports. In 2016, Ramon Vazquez was tasked with creating the incision on Maureen Pacheco’s back for a spinal fusion surgery, according to the outlet. But the doctor, who was assisting two other surgeons at the time, saw something that didn’t look right to him. Pacheco has a life-long condition that kept one of her kidneys from ascending into her abdomen. However, Vazquez mistook the organ for a cancerous tumour.

Soon enough a gentle snow might provide some quietude, a dampening against the constant and obscene political hectoring. Calling for snow is blasphemous within the ranks of the Royal Order of the 21sters, of which I am a member of the founding committee, but I would ask the lodge for understanding. It would be one thing if we knew the obscenities would end Tuesday, Election Day, but they won’t. We have spiraled into a hell of politics being too much with us, and always. The key word that gives it all away is fight. They all want to go to Washington and fight for us. I will fight for you. I don’t want you to. But that’s exactly what they do.

They arrested him at work in front of his colleagues, hauled him off to jail and held him for 15 days believing he was someone else: a fugitive wanted for attempted murder. Six years later, the patient man — 43-year-old Marvin Seales of Harper Woods — got his payback.

The fugitive that police were looking for had used the name "Marvin Seals" as an alias, though they arrested the real "Marvin Seales" instead and held him for attempted murder. It was a mistake that could have and should have been avoided, the jury concluded as it delivered … [Read more...] about Wrongfully jailed man wins $3.5 million: ‘I kept saying, it’s not me’
