Playboy Model’s Death Shows Why You Can’t Trust ‘Just Any’ Chiropractor

*This pains me deeply. Until I found a chiropractor who proved himself to me, I was against all of them. I had visited a chiropractor in Studio City, California once. The office he worked out of had a huge display on Cahuenga Blvd. I went in one day, and I swear, I left out in more pain than when I entered. Because of this, it took years before I had the courage to visit another; and only after I saw the excellent results of someone I knew, following her visit to the new guy.

So when I hear that someone, in this case a woman who happened to be a Playboy model, losing her life, following a visit to a chiropractor, it breaks my heart.

I want to let you know that not every chiropractor is worthy of the license. It’s best if you get a referral from someone you trust. Continue reading

Watch: Love Compassionate Animal Stories? (You’ll Want to Meet ‘Hobnob’)


*Animal lovers will love this turn poison into medicine story about a donkey named ‘Hobnob’. It’s a story about human kindness, compassion and the effects of what love can do.

I won’t spoil it by saying any more.

Let the video speak for itself (because it does it perfectly).

Happy Friday TNT readers!

Eeek! Lindsay Lohan Won’t Be Giving Anyone ‘The Middle Finger’ for Awhile (Video)


*At least not from her left hand.

The unfiltered celebrity who has been keeping the press occupied for years now for shenanigans that have absolutely nothing to do with her career as an actress, including blaming “the Black kid” for a crime she committed in 2007, recently released a video talking about her boo-boo, a severed finger — which she lost part of as the result of trying to help anchor a boat while she was on vacation.

Fortunately for Lohan, friends were able to locate the missing piece and doctors reattached it. And media outlets referring to this as her”ring finger” — it’s actually her middle finger — is obviously having an off day.

Jus’ saying… Continue reading

Cancer Cure? If You or Anyone You Know Has Cancer, You Should Watch This! (Video)


*The work of this groundbreaking physicist bears repeating. Since TNT’s previous article on her, she was interviewed by Roland Martin on News One and provides further proof of the progress her exceptional work is continuing to make in the area of formulating a cure for cancer.

Many of us believe a cure or cures for the #1 killer is already upon us; but because cancer is such a money-making business, it’s cure remains a secret. But that’s why the work of Dr. Hadiyah-Nicole Green is so important. And our support of her work is too! It takes a real personal commitment to inspire someone to do this work, unstintingly. And her motivation to do so stems from personal experience, where two of her beloved family members had cancer and went the traditional route to try and maintain their lives.

They endured chemotherapy, which makes an attempt to kill the cancer at the expense of killing every other area of what makes a body function.

Cancer has become so overwhelmingly widespread, just about everyone knows SOMEONE who is or has suffered with it or died as a result. But with that said, many of those people were probably getting chemo.

I, too, have someone close to me who lives as a survivor. She has battled three forms of cancer since 1997. She had a 10 year remission and then was told in 2014 that her cancer had returned.

She was devastated. Continue reading

Chicago Nurse Hopes 3D Printed Kidneys Will Save Her

Darvece Monson

*I know what you’re thinking and I agree: She doesn’t even look sick. 

But she is.

Darvece Monson admits she has tried everything to secure a new kidney with no luck. And with the traditional options looking so bleak, she is willing to look at alternatives.

For the past year, three days a week, six-hours per day, Monson has been on hemodialysis; a treatment endured by 35 percent of Black Americans in the U. S. But the mother of an 8-year-old says that it was actually the treatments that made her hopeful about potentially getting a 3D printed kidney, which would reduce the waiting time on lists that currently hold approximately 25,000 out of 70,000 people (of all races) to weeks rather than years. This, in addition to the possibility that her body may actually reject the organ, which is a major concern in organ transplants.

“It is a blessing that I am in Chicago, African-American and female; that also is my curse,” Monson chuckles. Continue reading

First Human Head Transplant Volunteer Steps Up! (Watch)


*Excuse me one sec, while I attempt to wrap my own securely attached head to this lastest rather scientific occurrence. A neuroscientist in Italy had promised one day he would perform the first head transplant surgery. Everyone within earshot most likely replied “Ha!” and went about their business. The neuroscientist most likely just shrugged off the haters and kept it moving. No doubt secretly looking for volunteers.

Well the joke is on the haters now, because a volunteer has sho’ nuff stepped up.

I can just imagine Dr. Sergio Canavero sticking his tongue out singing, “Nah-nah-nah-nah-nah!”

He had promised that his procedure would take place in December 2017, and it looks like everything is on schedule. His volunteer is 30-year-old Valery Spiridonov, a Russian man who hopes that the historic operation will help him to live a normal life. Continue reading

TV Station Suspends Female Anchors, Orders Them To Lose Weight


*They say the camera adds 10 pounds, and that everyone looks a little…healthier on TV.  Egypt’s state broadcaster thinks it’s more than the camera for eight of its female anchors, and has suspended them and ordered them to lose weight!  

The Egyptian Radio and Television Union (ERTU) has given the women just one month to take off the pounds before allowing them to appear again on air with what they say will be “appropriate appearance.”

Interestingly, the ERTU has a female director, Safaa Hegazy, who used a be TV anchor!  


Lest you ask, yes, Hegazy is what many in the US would call a “skinny beeeatch.”   I think she looks like Sally Field, but anyway… Continue reading

Model With Vitiligo Redefining “Beauty”


*Just when you think you might be able to define the term “beauty,” I invite you to take a look at model Chantelle Winnie’s stunning cover shot!

Winnie was born Chantelle Brown-Young in 1994 in Toronto, to parents of Jamaican heritage.  At the age of four, she contracted vitiligo, a chronic autoimmune disorder that causes a loss of pigment on the skin in patches around the body, particularly the face and hands.

While the condition is not contagious, it affects two percent of the population and has no known cure.  Vitiligo affects all ethnicities, but is more visible among people of African and Hispanic heritage.

By the time she entered school, Winnie has being teased — and even beat up — by her classmates.  Some likened her to a cow and “mooed” at her, while others simply avoided her in the mistaken fear that they might  “catch” the condition.

“I remember sitting by my window, wishing upon the stars that my skin condition would go away,” she remembered.  “I wondered, ‘Why me?'” Continue reading
