Memes, Phoenix, and 🤖: VA TO PAY $2.5 MILLION TOAMILITARYVETERAN WHO GOTCANCER DUE TO NEGLIGENCE OF VA DOCTOR A judge on Monday awarded $2.5 million to a military veteran who said that his now-terminal cancer would have been curable had the Veterans Administration hospital in Phoenix diagnosed it sooner. U.S. Magistrate Judge Michelle Burns ruled a nurse practitioner who found abnormalities in Steven Harold Cooper's prostate during an examination in late 2011 at the Carl T. Hayden VA Medical Center had breached the standard of care by failing to order more testing and refer him to a urologist. Instead, Cooper learned 11 months later from a VA doctor in Gilbert that he had stage-IV prostate cancer. The day after receiving the diagnosis, Cooper sought treatment from a private doctor. "He basically sent me home to die," Cooper said in an interview Monday night. “I felt absolutely betrayed by my country that I served for 18 years when all I was seeking was basic healthcare.” My congratulations to this American veteran with a major judicial victory. Regretfully, there are thousands of such cases across the country, and not everywhere it comes to trial. The VA under Obama inflicted irreparable damage to the lives and health of so many veterans, but did not bear any penalty for it. System restructuring of the VA should be the main task of the current administration, and the positive effect of the changes should be rapid and really tangible. veteranscomefirst veterans_us Veterans Usveterans veteransUSA SupportVeterans Politics USA America Patriots Gratitude HonorVets thankvets supportourtroops semperfi USMC USCG USAF Navy Army military godblessourmilitary soldier holdthegovernmentaccountable RememberEveryoneDeployed Usflag StarsandStripes

Memes, Taraji P. Henson, and Outlook: Katherine Johnson, age 98, on stage with Janelle, Taraji, and Octavia at the Oscars. Incredible #Hidden Figures #Oscars 1 KatherineJohnson, one of the NASA research mathematicians portrayed in the Oscar-nominated film "Hidden Figures," received a standing ovation at the Academy Awards on Sunday. Johnson, portrayed in the movie by Taraji P. Henson, worked for NASA as a research mathematician for more than 30 years, according to NASA's website. Appearing at the Dolby Theatre, Johnson, now 98 years old, thanked the crowd for their support.Johnson was instrumental in Alan Shepard's journey to become the first American in space and in John Glenn's mission to become the first American to orbit the Earth. She, along with the other women of color in the program, dealt with segregation in Jim Crow-era Virginia where NASA's Langley Research Center was located. Johnson didn't anticipate the success she would find at NASA, telling the Los Angeles Times that she "did what we were asked to do to the best of the ability." "I was just excited to have challenging work to do and smart people to work with," she said. Johnson has said she approves of her portrayal in the film."Go see 'Hidden Figures,' and take a young person," she told the Los Angeles Times last month when asked how to get more women and people of color involved in STEM careers. "It will give a more positive outlook on what is possible if you work hard, do your best and are prepared." 17thsoulja BlackIG17th blackexcellenceinacting🎬

Aerosmith, Big Sean, and Drunk: Don't talk to me or my son ever again DrSmashlove U ever start dating someone and they listen to your genre of music and u all excited about it but then they like the wrong shit and now u annoyed u ever brought up music in the first place 🤔. Like if I'm talking to a older grown and sexy Caucasian woman and she got a tribal tramp stamp and she like Nickelback I'm not gonna hold it against her pretty ass Bruh. The horrendous rock - tattoo taste is indicative of a dark past and I happen to like ladies with a dark past - just like pets who came from bad circumstances, I find women with more issues than Time Magazine easier to love 😍. (Side note: this type of woman is brutally honest, which I also love. Like I'm all "ayeee...u ever test positive for anything?" And she just like "yeah, gonorrhea, once, in 2007 😣. I went back stage at an Aerosmith show, got drunk, and banged Steven Tyler smh. Nothing some antibiotics couldn't fix ☺️." And I'm just like, to myself "WOW!!!! Do u also dumpster dive and play roulette with the first needle u see by jamming it in your thigh just to see what happen?! You bold AF, grown and sexy Caucasian woman!" 😂) Nah but u ain't gon discuss music with this chick. It's safe to say we gon spend the night talmbout Trump. But see sometimes the convo is more difficult. I'm like aye what u listen to, she like "rap ☺️" and I'm like "oh word? 😀" And she like "Drake, Gucci, Future, 21" and I'm like "take me to flavor town mama 😍" and then she all "G Eazy, Big Sean" and I'm all "this date was going great. It really was. I know in one week you gon text me like 'WELL I THOUGHT THE DATE WENT WELL SORRY I'M NOT UP TO YOUR STANDARD'" and imma have to reply and apologize but deep down I ain't sorry at all. If u a lil hipster who love Pinegrove and Weyes Blood we might could build a future. But if I ever have to come downstairs to enjoy pancakes with u and our 11 chirren and I hear "Last night took a L, but tonight I bounce back!", I might just say I'm going to Whole Foods for orange juice, get in the minivan, drive away, and never come back. Don't worry baby. Kids will be fine. I'll come back for the Princeton graduations, and NFL draft day 😘 GoodbyeForeverMyLove 😂😂😂

For years, the media mogul withheld her story to protect herself from the judgment of others. However, when the news broke in 1990 of her pregnancy and subsequent loss, after the initial feeling of devastation and betrayal, Winfrey finally felt free. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Now, almost 50 years since giving birth after having been raped by a family member, Winfrey reveals that she’s completely okay with the fact that she doesn’t have any children of her own. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “I didn’t want babies. I wouldn’t have been a good mom for babies,” Winfrey said in the April Issue of GoodHousekeepingUK. “I don’t have the patience. I have the patience for puppies, but that’s a quick stage!” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Instead, Winfrey says she already a mother figure to the “world’s children” in her Leadership Academy boarding school in Johannesburg, South Africa. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “When people were pressuring me to get married and have children, I knew I was not going to be a person that ever regretted not having them because I feel like I am a mother to the world’s children,” she said. “Love knows no boundaries. It doesn’t matter if a child came from your womb or if you found that person at age two, 10 or 20. If the love is real, the caring is pure and it comes from a good space, it works.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “It is more rewarding than I would ever have imagined,” Winfrey said of the school. “I was doing this to help them, but it has brought a light to my life that I can’t explain,” she added.
