Smallest Mother Ever Shocks The World With Her THIRD Pregnancy

Published

on

How far would you go to have a baby? It’s an intriguing question, one that brings up all kinds of “What Ifs?” What if the life of the child was in danger? What is the child would be born severely deformed, or suffering from some debilitating genetic disease? What if you couldn’t conceive? Would you spend all the money in your savings – and then some – on the off chance that you could possibly get pregnant?

Well, for the world’s smallest mom, all of these were considerations – and then some. Stacey Herald lives in Kentucky, and at a mere two foot, four inches tall she is on record as one of the tiniest people ever to get pregnant and have a child.

Actually, Stacey and her husband Will (who is five foot nine by the way) have three kids, and each time out the doctors have warned her of two things – one, the chance of passing down her rare congenital condition (Osteogenesis Imperfecta) to the baby, and two, that her brittle bones and undersized lungs could not handle the birthing process. While she and her hubby listened to the doctors, they also believe that God has a plan for us all, and in their case, it was to have kids.

Australia: protesters demand urgent measures to stop environmental catastrophe

Published

Thousands of students took to the streets of Australia and other Asia-Pacific countries on Friday to kick off a global strike demanding world leaders gathering for a UN Climate Action Summit adopt urgent measures to stop an environmental catastrophe.

“We didn’t light it, but we’re trying to fight it,” read one sign carried by a student in Sydney, as social media posts showed huge demonstrations around the country including outback towns like Alice Springs.

“The oceans are rising and so are we,” read another sign held by a protester wearing school uniform in Melbourne.

Similar protests, inspired by the 16-year-old Swedish activist Greta Thunberg, are planned in some 150 countries on Friday. The aim is for students and others from around the world to speak in one voice about the impending effects of climate change on the planet.

The strike will culminate in New York when Thunberg, who has been nominated for a Nobel prize for her climate activism, will spearhead a rally at home of the United Nations headquarters.

Thunberg noted the “huge crowd” in Sydney in a tweet, which she said would set the standard as the strikes moved across Asia, Europe and Africa

By early afternoon, the Sydney protesters were overflowing out of a 34-hectare (84-acre) open space in the city. Similar crowds were reported in Brisbane and other state capitals.

Danielle Porepilliasana, a Sydney high school student, had a blunt message for politicians like Australian Finance Minister Mathias Cormann, who told parliament on Thursday that students should stay in class.

“World leaders from everywhere are telling us that students need to be at school doing work,” she said, wearing anti-coal earrings.

“I’d like to see them at their parliaments doing their jobs for once.”

The UN summit brings together world leaders to discuss climate change mitigation strategies, such as transitioning to renewable energy sources from fossil fuels.

The issue is particularly pertinent to low-lying Pacific islands, which have repeatedly asked wealthier nations to do more to prevent rising sea levels.

Children in the Solomon Islands protested on the shoreline wearing traditional grass skirts and carrying wooden shields in solidarity with the global movement.

In Thailand, more than 200 young people stormed into the environment ministry and dropped to the ground feigning death as they demanded government action on climate change.

Hudson-Odoi agrees new contract for Chelsea

Published

Chelsea striker Callum Hudson-Odoi has silenced speculation by signing a new five-year deal with Chelsea.

A deal understood to be worth more than £120,000 a week.

The contract ends months of speculation about the 18-year-old England winger’s future.

In January, Hudson-Odoi handed in a transfer request after Chelsea rejected a £35m bid from Bayern Munich.

But the teenager received assurances about his future from new manager Frank Lampard in the summer, and indicated then he was ready to commit his future.

He is set to return to the first team after recovering from an Achilles injury suffered in April.

Hudson -Odoi says, it has been a long wait but it’s done now and I’m really happy about that, “I’ve been a Chelsea player since I was eight and this is the right club for me to be at.”
