Meghan King Edmonds’ Son Diagnosed With Irreversible Brain Damage

Real Housewives’ star, Meghan King Edmonds shared her son, Hart, was recently diagnosed with “minor Periventricular Leukomalacia on both sides of his brain”. On a post on her blog, Edmonds explains how she had a feeling something was not right with him. To illustrate her suspicions, she stated, “The nurses struggled to straighten his legs to measure his length. He suckled hard, shallow, and often until I bled and he spit up black.”

The news was delivered after the 1-year-old had a selective MRI, after months of appointments with different doctors. The neurologist explained the condition is more common in premies, but since Hart was born a 37-weeks gestation, it is speculated the damage happened “a couple months before he was born.” This diagnosis puts Hart at risk for being diagnosed with cerebral palsy.

On her post titled “My Hart” King Edmonds describes the obstacles she faced to get to this point. She first took Hart to get his lip and tongue tie released, and then to a chiropractor for craniosacral therapy. Consequently, she took him to a pediatric ophthalmologist for his strabismus. The reality-TV-star continued to ask his pediatrician, who stated Hart was fine, but she still insisted for a neurologist referral. Nonetheless, the neurologist also said Hart was healthy.

She persisted and contacted a neurologist specializing in cerebral palsy, who confirmed the previous diagnosis. Ultimately, King Edmonds begged for a selective MRI, and three days later his condition was discovered. Her husband, Jim Edmonds, was allegedly very surprised by the results of the MRI. The Real Housewives’ alumna, however, remained optimistic about the news. The family proceeded to call friends and family and to enroll Hart on therapy.

King Edmonds concludes her blog post by acknowledging the challenges Hart’s condition represents, but choosing to stay positive on taking these on. She writes, “I explained to Jimmy how we are not somehow compromised or punished for having a child with special needs (whatever that may or may not mean!), we are BLESSED.”

Steve Wozniak Had To Submit His Tetris Scores To Nintendo Power Secretly

Apart from being a known technical wizard, having helped found Apple, Steve Wozniak is also apparently a pretty amazing Tetris player. He used to play Tetris on the original Game Boy and has in the past let loose that he did use to submit his scores to Nintendo Power.

businessinsider.com

Nintendo Power was a video game news and strategy podcast for the United States and Canada, where they also printed game high scores. The magazine started originally in August 1988 as Nintendo’s official print magazine and lasted for 24 years of production, making it one of the longest ever run gaming magazines in North America.

The final issue was released on December 11, 2012, and that looked like the end of Nintendo Power, however, in 2017 it returned as an online podcast.

Well, Steve Wozniak was an amazing Tetris player, potentially one of the best ever. From 1988 onwards he was always ranked #1 in their high score section. In fact, he was ranked #1 so much that Nintendo Power told him they would no longer print his name in the magazine. But Wozniak had a plan, he couldn’t lose his number one spot like this! So he decided to spell his name backwards and submitted it along with a photo of his high score: Evets Kainzow.

He even changed his city to Saratoga instead of Los Gatos, and then he forgot about the joke. On the next issue of the magazine, he initially thought a foreign kid had broken his record! Then he remembered that he had submitted his name backwards. Wozniak released this information during an interview with Gizmodo, which had most of the internet calling out his bluff.

But Reddit users quickly responded with photos of the actual Nintendo Power issue, and it did indeed have Evets Kainzow on the #1 high score spot for Tetris. His score? 546,145 points. Today’s world records are in the millions, but at the time this was considered an extremely high score.

In a statement from Fox late Monday, “We are turning the final season into a television event. We are trying to go out guns blazing. You allow fans to lean in and have the ending they deserve.” Some cast and crew members openly support Smollett, even writing a letter to Fox stating they wanted him back on the show. However behind the scenes the source revealed, many crew members and some cast, believe that Smollet made up the attack and should never be allowed to return to the show.

The charges against him were eventually dropped, however the district attorney, said that Smollett was not innocent and they believed that he hired two brothers to stage the attack. Two brothers that worked on ‘Empire’ in stunt scenes. The brothers were also ordered to send a letter to Fox threatening Smollett’s life. The brothers are currently suing Smollett, for violation of privacy and defamation of character. The city of Chicago also filed a suit against Smollett, to recover some of the money the ‘bogus investigation cost the city.
