Doctors are supposed to be there to help their patients, but sometimes they have other things on their mind. These terrible doctors traumatized their patients with gross violations of the Hippocratic Oath.
The Pediatrician Who Molested and Raped His Young Patients
Every parent wants to make sure their child is happy, which is why a good pediatrician is so important. But just because someone has a license and a successful practice doesn’t mean they should be left around your kids.
Described my news outlets as “the worst pedophile in American history,” Earl Brian Bradley is every parent’s nightmare as he used his position as a pediatrician to molest and rape over 100 child patients -some as young as 3 months old.
From the outside, Bradley’s office looked like a great place to get your child comfortable around doctors, with carnival rides, a small theater showing Disney films and all kinds of kid-friendly decorations. For almost ten years Bradley worked in the town of Lewes, Deleware, but then Bradley’s own sister informed the state’s medical society of patient complaints about the doctor‘s inappropriate touching of their children. In 2009, Bradley was arrested and accused of nine counts of inappropriate touching including the fourth degree rape of a two-year-old patient. Then police found more than 13 hours of video footage from the doctor’s office showing even more rapes and molestations.
Eventually, Bradley was charged with 471 charges of molestation, rape and child-exploitation. He was convicted for every charge and sentenced to 14 consecutive life terms plus 165 years in prison without parole.
The Doctor Who Modified Patients’ Vaginas Without Consent
If women have been having sex and delivering babies since humanity began, their anatomy is probably just fine when it comes to those two things, but Dr. James C. Burt disagreed with nature, writing, ”women are structurally inadequate for intercourse. This is a pathological condition amenable to surgery.” The surgery in question was one he specially created that he believed would turn women into ”horny little mice” by increasing their sexual responsiveness. More specifically, he would remove the hood of the clitoris, reposition the vagina, move the urethra and alter the walls between the rectum and the vagina.
In fact, the surgery often left women with sexual dysfunctions, scarring, permanent physical damage and chronic infections of the kidney bladder and vagina, but that didn’t stop Dr. Burt from experimenting on hundreds of women without their permission over the course of 22 years -usually after a pregnancy. ”The patient,” he wrote, ”had not been informed that anything more had been done to her than delivery and episiotomy and repair, or ”Yes, you had stitches with your delivery.’ ” It’s worth noting that the doctor was never even certified by American Board of Obstetrics and Gynecology nor was he a licensed surgeon.
When his crimes finally caught up with him, he claimed his accusers were ”dissatisfied women who may have had complications, who may be lying, who may have had positive feelings turn negative when forced to pay the bill and women who stand to make a lot of money from the lies.” Despite his claims of innocence, the doctor voluntarily surrendered his license in 1989 and later declared bankruptcy after multiple lawsuits left him owing $21 million. Amazingly, Burt never faced criminal charges for his acts and died in 2002 without ever once seeing the inside of a jail cell.
The Doctor Who Impregnated Patients With His Own Sperm
When a woman goes to a fertility doctor seeking artificial insemination, she’s not asking the doctor to donate his own sperm -but that’s just what Cecil Byran Jacobson did in anywhere between 15 and 75 cases. Despite having no specialist training in infertility medicine, Jacobson operated his own reproductive genetics center. During his time as a doctor there, he offered to help artificially inseminate patients with sperm from screened, anonymous donors -only the samples weren’t from anonymous men, they were from the doctor himself. As if that weren’t bad enough, in one case the doctor even switched his sperm out with the husband of a women undergoing the procedure. At least fifteen of Jacobson’s patients have discovered the doctor fathered their children and some estimate there are up to 75 kids in this world that were born thanks to the doctor’s unethical practices.
Jacobson maintains that he acted in the right and that he only supplied samples when donors failed to show up and a patient was about to complete her fertility window -and in the case where the woman’s husband was supposed to supply the sample, he claims it was a simple mix up in the laboratory. Despite his claims and appeals, the doctor was convicted of 52 counts of mail fraud, wire fraud and perjury. Surprisingly though, he was only sentenced to five years in prison and the loss of his medical license and has been out of prison since 1997.

Types of Business Class Seats:
Generally, services, entertainment options and in-flight amenities offered by the business class are pretty much the same across various airlines. But the difference between the seats can be huge. Here are the main types of seats that can be found aboard business class cabins.
These are the most comfortable of all business class seats. Each seat is separated from others by a mini-cabin and can be easily transformed into a fully-flat bed. Such suites are equipped with personal television and workstations, and give passengers a maximum level of comfort and privacy.
Flat Bed Seats
As the name suggests, this type of seat gives you the comfort of a real bed. Such seats can be reclined to a horizontal position and can make even the longest flight pleasant and comfortable.
Angle Lie-Flat Seats
This type of seat offers a recline angle of 180 degrees and is very comfortable for working and resting. However, some passengers find such angle awkward and feel discomfort when trying to fall asleep.
Though Recliner Seats do not offer a substantial angle of recline, they are pretty spacious and comfortable, and it is quite clear that they are a lot more comfortable than economy seats.
When choosing business class flights you choose not just comfortable seats, with a significant recline angle, you choose superior in-flight services, delicious meals and other “little things” that are so important during a long-haul flight, things that make you enjoy every minute spent in the air.

The easiest way to get rid of unnecessary stuff is to organize a garage sale. Alternatively, you can donate things to charity organisations. The fewer things you need to relocate, the easier and less expensive your move will be. Once you are done with the assessment, you can decide on the number packing supplies you need.
One Month Before the Move
By this point, you should have decided on a moving company that will help relocate your belongings. Get in touch with your mover and agree all the details of the future move. If you’ve decided to do the packing by yourself, start gathering necessary supplies. Once you have everything you need, start packing things that you will not use before the move. To make the packing faster and easier, involve your spouse and children in this process.
Two Weeks Before the Move
Start cleaning empty rooms, like attics, basements or closets. Also make sure your new home is ready to welcome your family and all your belongings. Otherwise saying, make arrangements to clean it.
Inform your relatives and friends about your move and make sure they have your new address. Also, do not forget to give your new address to your doctor, insurance company, school, bank, etc. If necessary change newspaper subscription.
One Week Before the Move
Continue packing things that are not packed yet. When packing do not forget to label boxes. Also write a list of things contained in each box. This will make unpacking a lot easier.
Think about about food or easy-to-cook meals you can quickly prepare for your family to grab a bite during the move. If you move during a hot season, avoid food that spoils quickly.
On the Moving Day
Do not panic and do everything according the plan, you have made two months before. If you have hired a reputable company, you can be sure that everything will go quickly and smoothly. Do not forget to say “goodbye” to your neighbors and enjoy your move!

Putting a timeline on relationships is impossible.
No one will tell you how many dates you need to have before your relationships turn into something serious. According to some studies, most fresh-baked couples get into more or less serious relationships after about 6-8 dates.
Men and Women need different amounts of time to understand they are falling for someone.
According to the same study, women need more time to understand whether or not they have strong feelings towards someone. Thus, men need to go on three dates to understand they are falling in love, while women can state the same only after about fourteen dates.
People understand they want to have sex with someone during the first few seconds of a date.
Most people need much time to decide if they want to have serious relationships with someone. However, when it comes to sex, people need not more than 3 seconds to understand they are ready to roll in the hay.
Non-verbal communication plays a crucial role.
Fifty seven percent of the surveyed women responded that body language and self-perception are the first things they pay attention to when talking to a man. Thirty eight percent pay attention to a man’s manner of speaking, and only seven percent care about what he is actually talking about.
Skinny people have more chances than overweight.
Although they say that appearance is of no importance, it is just the other way round in practice. Thus, for a great percentage of people body type matters a lot, especially when it comes to the first impression. According to several surveys, skinny people have more chances to interest a mate, than those with extra weight.
Men do not mind being asked out.
There is nothing wrong with women taking an active position in the relationship and asking a man out. As a matter of fact, 91% of men do not feel any embarrassment when ladies make the first step and ask them out for a date.
Many women initiate sex relationship.
There is a long held perception that men are obsessed with sex. Indeed, men have fewer prejudices when it comes to sex, however the number of females initiating sex relationship has significantly increased in recent years. Almost a half of the surveyed women answered they are not afraid to make the first step.
Women need independence in relationships more than men.
Independence and personal space is of a high importance for 93 percent of females, compared to 82% of males. Most couples prefer having separate budgets. Then again, women are more concerned about their financial independence. Seventy seven percent of women, in comparison to sixty three percent of men prefer having separate bank accounts.
Whether or not you agree to these facts, you need to understand that it is impossible to build relationships according to certain rules. However, knowing at least something about the nature of relationships is always beneficial, as the more you know the more chances you have to understand your partner better.
Most students in the world today hate doing homework’s since they lack self-motivation in their studies. If you aspire to excel in your studies then, you ought to consider doing your homework as an essential component of your academics. Most people will have different preferences while dealing with their homework. Some will prefer doing them individually, others as a team while another group might opt to outsource the services of an assignment helper.
Factors to consider when teaming up with friends for a homework party
Not too many people, having too many people in the discussion may lead to the discussion being unproductive. Invite a maximum of four other people into the discussion thus minimizing too many distractions through hanging out and too much talking by the members. By doing this, there will be the full concentration of the members thus the assignment being done effectively and efficiently. Secondly, the person you invite for a homework party matters a lot. You have to consider engaging people you know are active in the chosen subject such that if there’s something you are having a problem with you can always refer them. Alternatively you can also invite someone you don’t know thus making a new friend. On some instances, you could also volunteer to help others who are weak in the subject.
Organize your study area in a way that it will be conducive to everyone and their work by providing a significant floor space for every member. You may also have some refreshments and snacks to help keep energy and concentration levels up too. The study set up may be as shown in the diagram below.
Take breaks, to minimize the monotony and improve your focus and concentration. You need to take regular breaks the same way you should while studying alone. Using a stopwatch, you may be able to keep track with your schedule and ensure that your breaks will not be prolonged for too long. Lastly, being honest is paramount while working as a team. Genuine friends will always be supportive. They will offer to help you and together you might even discover new ways of doing things you had never considered before. In the same line, always take responsibility for your homework. Never allow anyone else to do your homework on your behalf even if they are the best in a given subject than you are. Therefore, you will always have pride in your work and consequently learn something new.
In conclusion, as a student you should always be prepared to handle any task assigned to you either as an assignment or as homework. It is important that the student should understand him or herself better as to whether he prefers working in an individual capacity or working as a team. Having said that, students who have settled to work as a team ought to familiarize themselves with both the merits and demerits of the team working. Students should ensure that they make maximum use of every homework party whether in tackling a mathematical query or dealing with a theoretical question that requires them to write short essay.

You don’t need to love games to be a geek, but there sure are a lot of nerds out there that just can’t get enough gaming time. Personally, I tend to feel awkward around people (even friends) unless we’re playing a game and then I feel entirely too comfortable. Gaming is also a great way to pass the time when you’re alone (or trying to pass time at work), but you can’t always sit down to play World of Warcraft, Minecraft or some other immersive, system-hogging game. For those times, I suggest trying one of these fun online games.
Adult Swim -It’s kind of amazing (and almost sickening) how many great games you can play for free on Adult Swim’s website. It’s almost like they don’t want you to do anything else with your life but waste time on their site -actually, I have the feeling that’s exactly what they want. I recommend starting with a game from one of your favorite shows like Rick and Morty, but don’t be surprised if you get stuck on a maddeningly simple game that just goes on forever (like Rainbow Unicorn Attack).
HearthStone – Made by Blizzard, the same company responsible for World of Warcraft, this easy-to-learn card game is entirely addicting. Best of all, it’s totally free to download and play -though you do have to download it, so you might try playing HearthStone on your phone if you want to play at work (unless you work somewhere that they just don’t care if you download stuff). If you get into it, be sure to add me, my account name is whysteria#1254.
Mansion Casino – Looking to play games with slightly higher stakes? Then check out this online casino where you can play all your favorite casino games, including great geeky ones like Marvel and DC slots and scratchers. You can play for free just for fun or bet and win real money.
Have any favorite online games of your own? Share them in the comments! I know I could always use a few extra distractions (even if my sense of time management disagrees with me on this point).
