Dailymail (UK) 27 Nov 2012A pensioner is pleading with the NHS to turn her from a woman back into a man, after realising the sex change operation she had 23 years ago was a huge mistake. RAF veteran Gary Norton, 75, underwent a full male to female gender reassignment – but says it left her trapped in the wrong body. She’s now ditched her wardrobe of women’s clothes to live as a man again and is on the waiting list for a mastectomy. The pensioner, who is legally and still physically a woman, says she is desperate to return to her birth sex before it is too late.Gary, who changed her name to Gillian after her wife and four children disowned her, says she knew the sex change was a mistake when she grew sick of doing her hair and make up and continued to be attracted to straight women. She says: ‘I’m a red-blooded man and always have been. I still can’t believe this happened to me. I should never have been given the op. I tried to make a success of it, what else could I do? ‘But I’ve been living a lie. The sex change was a huge mistake. ‘I was vulnerable and I was given poor advice which has ruined my life. I don’t want this to happen to anyone else.’…Gary’s horror story began when she sought help for depression from her GP after being made redundant. During the meeting she admitted to dressing in her wife’s clothes for a secret thrill. She says she now realizes this was as far as she ever wanted to go. But she claims her GP concluded she could have been depressed because she wanted to be a woman and advised her to start taking hormone pills.http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2239120/Gary-Norton-75-woman-sex-change-operation-23-years-ago-wants-man-again.html
Scoop.co.nz 8 March 2017Family First Comment: “For nearly seven months, the Health Select Committee has been hearing stories from hundreds of Kiwis, and 3 out of 4 of them have been saying no to euthanasia,” says Dr. Smith. “But hardly anyone outside of the Committee is aware of what they’ve said.”Today marks the launch of the campaign 16,000 Voices – Kiwis say no to euthanasia. The campaign gives voice to a sampling of the 16,000 people who wrote in to the Health Select Committee expressing their opposition to euthanasia.“Most of the New Zealand public is unaware of just how overwhelming the opposition has been to the introduction of euthanasia legislation,” says Dr Jane Silloway Smith, Director of Every Life Research Unit, whose analysis of submissions made to the Committee forms the basis of the information provided in 16,000Voices.“For nearly seven months, the Health Select Committee has been hearing stories from hundreds of Kiwis, and 3 out of 4 of them have been saying no to euthanasia,” says Dr. Smith. “But hardly anyone outside of the Committee is aware of what they’ve said.”“If the Committee reports accurately on what they’ve been reading and hearing, we’re unlikely to see an endorsement for euthanasia legislation, which may come as a shock to many. That’s why 16,000 Voices is so important – to let us hear why Kiwis are saying no to euthanasia in their own words.”The 16,000 Voices campaign encompasses a website with videos and written submissions, alongside a Facebook page and You Tube channel.http://www.scoop.co.nz/stories/PO1703/S00090/16000-voices-show-kiwis-say-no-to-euthanasia.htm
Locsin tweeted on Wednesday that thediplomatic protests were filed with the Chinese Embassy in Manila, saying theprotests against China was due to their alleged harassment of a Philippine Navyship and its unilateral establishment of two districts that cover Philippineterritories in the West Philippine Sea. The two new districts – one in theParacels and one in the Spratlys, where several areas are claimed by thePhilippines – will be under the authority of the local government in Sansha, acity in the southern island of Hainan. Beijing refused to recognize and hasbelittled the ruling, saying that it has “indisputable” and “historical” claimover nearly the entire waters even as it encroaches on the territories of itssmaller neighbors./PN Philippines, China, Vietnam, Malaysia,Brunei, and Taiwan are in tangle in decades-long territorial conflict in theSouth China Sea, where oil and gas deposits have been discovered in severalareas. China claims a huge portion of the SouthChina Sea as part of its territory, but the Permanent Court of Arbitrationtribunal in The Hague invalidated this claim on July 12, 2016 following a casefiled by the Philippines in 2013. MANILA – The Department of ForeignAffairs (DFA) has “fired off” two diplomatic protests against China’s twoaggressive moves in the South China Sea, which its chief Teodoro Locsin Jr.described as “violations of international law and Philippine sovereignty.” “At 5:17 p.m. (on Wednesday), theChinese embassy received 2 diplomatic protests: 1. on the pointing of a radargun at a Philippine Navy ship in PH waters & 2. declaring parts ofPhilippine territory as part of Hainan province – both violations ofinternational law & Philippine sovereignty,” Locsin said on Twitter. Foreign Affairs secretary Teodoro Locsin Jr. says the Philippines filed two diplomatic protests against China over two developments in the South China Sea. AP

“I want to thank the coach and the club for the trust they give me. They did everything to keep me at Milan. “In the last six months, I have shown that age doesn’t matter. On vacation, I talked a lot with the club and saw my future in Milan. “I only think about football and helping the team to satisfy the fans.” Milan ended 2019-20 on an unbeaten run of 13 games and finished sixth in Serie A, securing a place in the qualifying rounds of the Europa League, where they face Shamrock Rovers on September 17. “Milan must continue how the season ended, we must work and believe, as we have done recently. “We must play with pride and confidence, remembering that when you put on the Milan shirt it’s a great privilege but at the same time a source of pressure. read also:Ibrahimovic: ‘Not here to be Milan mascot’ “The whole team did well and understood what it takes to get to the top. Now, we must work well from the first day.” Zlatan hopes to have the fans back at San Siro as soon as possible. “We have been good in the few last months, but with the fans we would have been even stronger. I hope they can return to San Siro soon.” FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 Zlatan Ibrahimovic said he returned to Milan because he ‘feels at home’ with the Rossoneri but stressed he will work to achieve the targets set for his next chapter at San Siro. After having returned to Milan in January, the Swede made a great impact on the team and the club did everything they could to successfully renew his deal in the fashion capital. “I have always felt part of Milan, even when I played with other teams,” Zlatan told Milan TV. “They always treated me well from day one. “When I first arrived in Milan, I smiled. Something I have never done before in my job. I feel at home and I don’t feel like I have been away.” Zlatan was expected to pick No9 but had decided to wear No11 and says he wanted to wear the shirt he wore during his first stint with the club. “I chose No11 because the Milan fans know me with this number,” he added. “With No21, I didn’t feel like the Ibrahimovic of the first Milan, so I asked for this number to feel like I used to before.” Ibrahimovic wanted to help the Diavolo back to old heights. “I came here to bring Milan back to their level, where they deserve to be. I do everything to achieve the goals I set,” the 38-year-old said. “We have to work and sacrifice, but in the last six months we have shown we have what it takes to reach certain goals. “We must not forget, however, that we have not won anything. In my head, the goal is always to win something. This season we have to win.” The Swede returned to Milanello after having reached an agreement until June 2021 and thanked the club and the coach.

Sixty yards from the net and 45 seconds into sudden-death overtime, Allie Murray held Syracuse’s hopes in her stick. The goalkeeper had, as she’d done a half-dozen times throughout the game, come out aggressively to clear and push the Orange offense up the field.This time though, Murray walked deeper into the zone and a Florida defender jumped to her. She wheeled to look for an open teammate she’d never find.“We’re usually pretty good at (that play),” SU head coach Gary Gait said. “It’s a guaranteed clear every time pretty much. Today that wasn’t the case.”Florida’s Mollie Stevens smacked Murray’s stick. The ball popped free, Sammi Burgess scooped it up and was fouled after a 50-yard sprint toward the Syracuse goal.The Orange had two defenders 8 yards from the goal, but Murray was forced to stop behind the pack. When play began again, neither of those defenders was able to stop Burgess from making a simple pass to Stevens, who rifled a game-winner into an empty net to give No. 3 Florida (5-0) an 11-10 win over No. 2 SU (5-1) in the Carrier Dome on Tuesday afternoon.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textThat one play symbolized Syracuse’s inability to hold onto both the ball, which it turned over 16 times, and the lead, which it lost three times throughout the contest. Murray’s third and final turnover was the last straw.“It seems like we kind of don’t value the ball in the first half,” Gait said. “Like, ‘Oh, no worries, we’ll just rally for the second half.’ We put ourselves in a tougher situation than taking care of the ball from the start.”In the first half, Syracuse committed a season-high 13 turnovers. Despite the sloppy play, the Orange found itself leading after 25 minutes by drawing free-position shots and working the ball around the 8-meter line. Four straight goals ended a Florida run and gave SU a 4-3 lead.Seconds later, UF’s Shayna Pirreca found a cutting Burgess across the middle. Burgess faked a shot, baiting Murray out of the goal, and wrapped a shot around the goalkeeper’s outstretched stick. Murray finished the game with more turnovers than saves (2).Florida had erased Syracuse’s lead in 21 seconds. And the Gators didn’t stop there, turning two more turnovers into goals in the last moments of the first half.“We had to get into our groove,” said SU attack Riley Donahue. “It just sucked that we didn’t get into it too early.”Syracuse got into that “groove” after halftime, going on a 5-1 run to take a 9-7 advantage that it held for nearly 12 minutes. But eventually it lost that, too, as SU assistant Regy Thorpe pleaded with the defense from the sideline.“Come on!” he yelled with the Orange clinging to a 9-8 lead. “Move! Move!”Syracuse defenders listened, but Florida’s Nicole Graziano spiked her stick into the turf as her goal once again brought the game level with 6:56 left.When Stevens gave UF a 10-9 lead two minutes later, all Gait could do was put the back of his hand over his mouth. Thorpe pulled his hat over his eyes then off his head. Michelle Tumolo, a former Florida assistant coach who now holds the same position at Syracuse, stood with her hands over her head while watching the replay on the video board.Syracuse’s leading goal-scorer Halle Majorana scored her 14th of the season with 2:46 to play, but it only tied the game.The Orange had already let its last lead slip away.“We just made too many mistakes,” Gait said. “… You make mistakes and you pay the price.” Comments Facebook Twitter Google+ Published on March 1, 2016 at 5:16 pm Contact Sam: firstname.lastname@example.org | @Sam4TR

TAMPA, Florida – Many Floridians’ cars will be parked in the driveway for at least another month. A statewide “stay-at-home” order goes into effect Friday, urging Floridians to remain home, unless they are making essential trips, as outlined by the executive order.State figures show that Floridians are already driving less, as residents attempt to flatten the curve. Compared to this time last year, gasoline demand is down as much as 50 percent in large metro areas, according to the Florida Petroleum and Marketers Association. AAA urges Floridians to follow the advice of state and local authorities, but don’t forget to check on your vehicle from time to time.“Leaving the car unused for an extended period of time could leave it vulnerable to problems with your battery, brakes, and tires,” said Mark Jenkins, spokesman, AAA – The Auto Club Group. “There are a few simple things you can do to make sure your vehicle is ready to roll when it’s time to hit the road again.”AAA offers these car care tips for longer-than-expected parked vehicles:Battery Boost. Start your vehicle every couple of days to keep the battery at a full state and prevent deterioration. Let the engine run for a few minutes to recharge, then turn it off. If you have one, consider using a Battery Tender or other maintenance-type battery charger. The Battery Tender would remain connected to the stored vehicle.Tire Pressure. Add 10 psi of pressure (more than usual) to each tire to prevent flat spots from forming on the tires. This occurs when the area of the tire touching the ground becomes rigid due to sitting in one position for an extended period. You can also move the vehicle periodically.Windshield Wiper Placement. Prop up the wiper arms so the blades are off the windshield and won’t get stuck to the glass.No Parking Brake. Don’t use the parking brake when storing the vehicle. The brake could become frozen, and the brake pads could rust to the rotors, or brake shoes could distort the drums. With an automatic transmission, simply place the vehicle in park. If the car has a manual transmission, put it in first or reverse gear and use wheel chocks to help hold the vehicle in place.Sun Shade. If your car is always outdoors and exposed to the sun, use a sun shade. This will help prevent the sun’s UV rays from deteriorating your dashboard and steering wheel.

For the fifth time this season, Reichenberger set a school record with a 39.46 time. He also broke the AV-CTL 300 meter record set by Ed Bugner of Andaleâ€™s mark of 39.5.â€œWeather wise it was really poor conditions in that it was wet, windy and rainy,â€ said Wellington head track coach Tyler Ryan. â€œI told Colin before the race not to worry about the time thinking that the race being FAT (Fully Automatic Time) and the conditions as they were his time wouldn’t be that good. He showed me!”Reichenberger has now bested his personal time on five consecutive track meets.On the girls side, Wellington came home with seven first-place finishes.â€¢Jaycee Schettler placed first in both the 100 meters with a 12.93 time and a the 200 meters with a 26.75 time.â€¢Leah Nelson finished first in the 400 meters with a 1:01.6 time.â€¢Jaedyn Ledesma won the 800 meters with a 2:30.2 time.â€¢Cajen Shore earned the top mark in the triple jump with a 32-8 leap.â€¢Avery Lewellen finished first in the high jump with a 5â€™4â€ leap.â€¢Shore, Schettler, Dietra Sober and Holly Wright won the 4×100 meter relay with a 50.80 time.â€œI was very, very happy on the girls side,â€ Ryan said. â€œWinning the 100, 200, 400, 800, high jump, triple jump and the 4×100 meter relay was great. Winning all of those and finishing second is a testament to the depth that Andale has.â€The complete results of the AV-CTL DIV track meet can be found here: http://stats.catchitkansas.com/user/file/game_results-129426.pdfTop three placers:GirlsTeam â€“ Andale 213, Wellington 125, Circle 107, W.
