Does that mean she's guilty of murder, or the hospital is facing a manslaughter charge?
...
Based on the alleged facts (admittedly filtered through Ms. Powell's attorney) I'd say the hospital is facing sizable civil, regulatory, and perhaps even criminal liability for the incident.

The clear origin of the mistaken ID has to be ascribed to the hospital, who somehow crossed up the records for the deceased and Ms. Powell's brother (who'd formerly been a patient there). The article indicates the hospital records included each man's full name and Social Security number (neither of which matched the other).

Fucking great ..

Three bottles of vodka have gone missing within the last three days from the Mrs's work place, her boss has just sent her a pm asking if she has any ideas where they could be. I don't think he's accusing her or anything, the place has been back open to the public for the last three days so other staff have been there .. the only thing is, she phoned me last night because the place was dead so I popped down to see her for about 20 minutes. Unless these bottles have been put somewhere else, I've got a couple of gut instinct ideas about who could have nicked them. Her boss doesn't know I popped in last night, I've told the Mrs that if he asks she's to tell him I did. I'm paranoid now they might think it was me even though it wasn't :mad:
Quoting myself but an update ..

The Mrs has sussed out who robbed the vodka, that person's lifted another bottle today within a ten minute time frame of her seeing two bottles and then one .. that person was also around when the last three went missing, I expect the person will lose their job over it although the owners are very kind people so they might not. At least I'm in the clear of any suspicion now. That person's obviously got problems, a hidden camera was installed after the last three went missing :( .. and the world keeps turning.

A 27-year-old man plans to sue his parents because they did not ask for his consent to bring him into the world, it is reported.
Raphael Samuel, from Mumbai, India, is reportedly part of a so-called 'child-free' advocate who believes children shouldn't be made to suffer life.
He has been described as an 'anti-natalist' who thinks parents don't have the right to give birth if a child has not agreed to being born.
And he is planning on taking legal action against his own parents for giving birth to him without his permission, Times Now News reports.

Cats are cute in zero G, dogs are more fun:

That's funny, but any loose objects in the cockpit are a huge no-no, especially when doing aerobatics. Having an unsecured dog in the cabin is unbelievably irresponsible.

I hope the animal was provided with some kind of protection for its very sensitive ears.

Cyclists on the footpath and pressing the bell behind you so you'll move out of the way!Darn it!You should be on the road
Not in this country... We have shared pedestrian/cycle paths (with rules, often marked, about who goes on which side of the path) alongside many roads. So dinging the bell to alert a pedestrian that they're obstructing the cycle lane is quite acceptable. And it's much safer than cycling on the road.

OTOH, on our local cycle path to the next town there're often parties of pensioners strolling along who jump out of their SKINS if the hear a bike bell. They spin round, see us and clutch each other in a panic as if we're the cavalry about to cut them down.

As Alexander Armstrong says to EVERY contestant on Pointless when discussing their hobbies/jobs, "That sounds like fun".
