time for awesomes--->Campbell River boy, 12, delivers his own baby brother

Campbell River boy, 12, delivers his own baby brother

Wow this is freaking AWESOME!!!! This 12 year old boy delivered his baby brother!

Gaelan Edwards snuck out of bed to watch TV and instead he got a new baby brother!

I find it interesting his name is Gaelan. Galen of Pergamon was a great Greek physician ~1800 years ago :)

I will quote this from the original article:

"Danielle Edwards, 30, said in a telephone interview that she woke about 2 a.m. to find herself in labor with the baby's head already beginning to crown. "I didn't go through any of the preliminary labor pains," she said. "None of it."

Unable to walk or reach the telephone, she rolled onto her back and noticed the TV on in the other room. Figuring it was her oldest son, she said, "Gaelan, I need you to come over here."

"It was like a springboard; he sat straight up, came and stood in the doorway area to my room. He put his hands on his hips and said, 'Mom, this is not going to be an at-home baby.'"

Then he saw the top of the baby's head and went straight to his mother's side.

"I said, 'Gaelan, when I push next, I need you to grab the baby by the shoulders and I need you to pull him out.' And he — just like by instinct, I couldn't even believe it — grabbed the baby by the shoulders, with the head on his wrist, and eased him out, kind of wriggled him from side to side, and pulled him onto the bed."

Danielle then watched as her oldest son went to the kitchen and came back with scissors and a clamp normally used to seal plastic bags. He clamped the cord, cut it, and helped his mother push out the placenta.

"He was amazing," Danielle said. "He helped me put the baby on my tummy, then he went and grabbed a blanket and helped me wrap the baby ... It was like he knew."

Once satisfied that his brother was safe, Gaelan got on the telephone and called one of Danielle's friends to take her and her new son, Caynan Edwards-Strong, to the hospital, where both were pronounced in good health.

Gaelan was initially unavailable for comment Monday, because he was out riding his bike. But he said in a later telephone interview that he learned everything from watching television and reading medical books that his mother owns. The last book he read was about midwives.

"Mom, I knew she was going to go into labor any day," he said. "Like, it was over the due date, so I'm like, 'Oh, whatever, I'll start reading these books.' . . . I've been reading medicine books for a few years now."

Gaelan, who is set to start Grade 7 this fall, said his first thought on Saturday was, "'Holy crud! This is really happening.'" But after that, he was "pretty calm" and focused. "I'm surprised that I actually did it."

Danielle, too, was at a loss to explain her son's poise except to say that he's always been a reader and curious about how things work. "We have a very blunt and honest family," she said. "So they ask me questions and I answer them."

Even so, she was stunned and proud of Gaelan's ability to keep his head in a situation where many would have panicked. "He's just this amazing little guy," she said."

Time for Tech--->Amazon CEO files patent for smartphone airbag

Yes. The CEO of Amazon.com wants to make smartphones with airbags! Funny huh?

They should just make the phones stronger to begin with! make all phone displays unbreakable. It can be done. It is being applied, just not mainstream. It should be mainstream. We shouldn't have to mess with hard to acquire expensive means of getting a toughphone. hrrrrmmmm I wonder of panasonic has one? It would be toughfone or something like it. As long as it has android OS it would be good, however the specs must be good in order to keep it long. that is one problem with this situation.

Review for western sizzlin 08.09.11

Review for western sizzlin 08.09.11

This place is off the beaten path a ways but it was still easy to access from US50.

The parking seemed to be ok but a little packed in too much. Could have used wider parking spots.

The area you first walked into could be spaced a little better and had both cash registers spaced further apart so the two cashiers could work more efficiently and there would be faster movement. They seemed to be ok at getting us in but seemed a little off for some reason.

The d├ęcor was nice and the layout of the place was ok.

We seated ourselves and were taken care of promptly. Our meals came to us very quickly.

I ordered a sirloin with a baked potato. The sirloin did taste very watered down and it needed tons of A1 to make it edible. The baked potato was really good. I got sour cream and cheese from the baked potato bar.

My husband got a chopped steak and he was satisfied with it. He also got a baked potato and he like it too and made it like I did.

My mom just got a house salad.

My sister got a junior version of the sirloin and hers came out too pink so she had to get a new one, it wasn't all that great either it was watered down like mine was. He mashed potatoes were too lumpy and dry and the gravy didn't taste very good. All she wanted was regular brown gravy and this place does not have it. There was no regular brown gravy That made her upset and so was I. I am very sensitive to limput potatoes and I would not want to try those. I would prolly puke them up LOL. They had 3 kinds of lumps, dry limps, uncooked lumps, and unmashed lumps. LOL. I kinda gagged thinking about that!

In order to fix out steaks we did request some seasoning, however it still didn't make it all that great. I would not get the steaks here.

Our watress was ok and prompt but not very personal.

Overall I would give the place 3.5 stars. The resoning is that the steaks were watered down and that's the focal point of the place and the service, even though extremely prompt, wasn't very personal. The pricing was quite high for the lack of quality for the sirloin.

Recommendation: good quick place for a baked potato and salad for lunch, or a cheap chopped steak, however the main course of the place leaves much to be desired.

"The worlds best restaurant" closes it's doors

"The worlds best restaurant" closes it's doors......

El Bulli, owned by award-winning chef Ferran Adria, will mark the end of a remarkable 27-years with a special sitting for staff and their families

A Spanish restaurant repeatedly voted the best in the world has served its final dish to the public and is closing its doors for the last time

They are only open 6 months out of the year.

Apperantly they were not really turning a profit.

that would explain the not turning a profit thing...

businesses that are restrictive hours are the same as well.

several local businesses had to shut down in my area becuase nobody came to buy stuff... they were only open during regular business hours, a time where not very many working people can show up to buy stuff.

the places with expansive hours tend to do better since they can make more money from the evening traffic and rush after work. peak shopping times in my locale are from 2pm-10:30PM. Any time before that is dead. so therefore the businesses see only 2.5-3 busy hours a day.

for a clothes place, for example, would be best opened from 11:30AM till 10PM. many do this and they are more stable, however there were a few clothing places opened from only 9AM-5PM and they never did well around my area. Many of them would close doors and those same slots at the mall would rotate a lot from shops that had the more restrictive hours. Specially ones targeted at teens. Most teens go to the mall around 7:30-close.

I know it costs more to have expansive hours, however you have more chances to make more money. If you have rest. biz. hrs and people that would have bought your products, would just go to another place that was open, make thier purchase, and you lost the sale.

a high class romantic eatery would be best having hours from 2:30PM-10:30PM or later rather then having hours from 9:30-6:00PM Many people crave that nicer fancy atmosphere at night rather then during the day.

Taco bell should be open from lunch till at least 5:00AM. Most people crave tacos at night. However, they close at 10:00PM here and I crave them between the hours of 1:00AM-3:30AM. Most people love tacos at nite. late nite.

I think businesses need to re-adjust to the ever changing sleep and work schedules of modern people. as well as re-strategize the hours. depending on the industry.

Also many people have to take off work to get things done like docs offices, car repair, etc. those places need to expand their hours so people don't have to take off work to go to them.

If less people take off work they will have more money to shop and take care of biz. More money to circulate.

This issue is so often overloooked.
