America Gay dad, Trystan Reese becomes pregnant

Trystan Reese

A gay dad Trystan Reese who lives in Portland, Oregon, U.S., is pregnant and about to give birth after he suffered a heartbreak following a miscarriage at six weeks in 2016.

Biff Chaplow and Trystan Reese are already adoptive parents to two young children Riley and Hailey but have spoken of their delight as they prepare to welcome their first biological child.

They adopted children are Biff’s niece and nephew and the gay dads agreed to take them in after his sister suffered substance abuse problems in 2011.

But the couple had always longed for a baby of their own. They had considered waiting up to a year before trying again after the 2016 miscarriage.

But because of the medical complications of Trystan having to go off testosterone they decided to continue.

The married couple have confirmed Trystan is due to give birth in the summer.

In a post on their website, Trystan said that he felt some people are interested to know why he wanted to become pregnant as a transgender person, but were too afraid to ask.

He said that some people think “trans people were born into the wrong bodies, and we really hate our bodies, and that’s why we need to transition.”

“For me, just transitioning normally – taking testosterone so that I have a beard and my voice is deep as its ever gonna get – and appear like a man… that’s enough for me.

“I never felt like I needed to change my body.

“And I for sure do not hate my body

“I feel like my body is awesome, I feel like it’s a gift to have been born with the body that I did.

“So if you can start to understand that, then it starts to make more sense that it would not seem totally bizarre for me to want to create and carry a baby.”

Speaking to the the WNYC podcast, the Longest Shortest Time , Biff said both of them had been very “cautious” in the early stages of the pregnancy.

According to Mirror, Trystan weighed himself “obsessively” and kept taking repeated pregnancy tests.

Ahead of the six-week test, Trystan called the doctor to tell them he was a trans-dad and worried about what the experience would be like.

He said: “I can feel someone looking at my face and searching for the remnants of womanhood,” Trystan told the podcast.

“They kind of squint their eyes a little bit and I can tell they’re trying to take away my beard, they’re trying to de-transition me in their heads.”

But the pair said those fears were unfounded as they have had nothing but positivity from medics.

They now know they will be expecting a little boy and are already joking that it’s “diagnosis male”.

UK government bans lover boy Nigerian doctor

Dr. Chris Uzoh

According to Mailonline, the 40-years-old Nigerian medical doctor accused of pestering his patient with love advances has been banned from practice in the UK for one year.

The Mailonline reports that Dr Chris Uzoh, the obsessive doctor had flooded a terrified patient with chat-up texts and tried to woo her with flowers.

Dr Uzoh, from Cheshire, sent her text messages after getting her number from her medical records.

The family doctor also bragged about being a ‘good-looking guy’ and spent six weeks pestering the woman to try and get a date and told her that he had ‘huge earning potential’.

He also claimed to be ‘the best in his medical school’ as well as having written ‘several well cited scientific publications’.

The General Practitioner from Great Sankey, near Warrington, Cheshire, also sent her 20 text messages.

Within 30 minutes of the appointment finishing, he texted her saying: ‘Sorry for this text message but I saw you and liked you and thought we could go on a date on the future.

‘I am single and looking for a serious relationship and not intending to mess about,’ one of the messages said.

He also left the patient a voice mail saying he wanted to ‘hear her voice before he went to work’.

Dr Uzoh later sent her another text saying: ‘I’ve been feeling like a schoolboy meeting a girl he fancied for the first time. I haven’t felt this way in a while.’

Later the woman received a card and flowers at her home along with a further message from Uzoh adding: ‘I wonder how else I would have met you if not this way.

‘My heart is pure, I care, I hope it would be possible to make you mine some day.’

The unnamed patient, who lived alone urged, Uzoh to stop pestering her but he pressed on with his chat-up lines saying: ‘I was trying to be romantic – I did not mean to be creepy. I was excited about you.’

‘How is it possible that a good looking guy who is a doctor, who has a job with huge earning potential, who was the best graduating doctor in his medical school, who started out as a urological surgeon with several well-cited scientific publications, who thinks you beautiful and special, who wants you – and you wouldn’t give him a chance? I’ve been in a Toronto and I couldn’t stop thinking about you,’ he said in another message.

The patient eventually complained to Uzoh’s colleagues at the Murdishaw Health Centre in Runcorn and he was reported to the General Medical Council.

The father of two has since quit the UK and is now working in Toronto, Canada.

At the Medical Practitioners Tribunal Service in Manchester, Uzoh was suspended from practise in Britain for 12 months after he was found guilty of misconduct.

The incidents began between March and May last year when the woman was booked in for an appointment with Uzoh after complaining of abdominal pain.

‘I was really shocked to get that initial message from him because I trusted him as a doctor.

‘If I got that message now there is no way I would respond. I was in a difficult position particularly at that point so seeing him taking an interest was a nice thing.

‘The next morning I woke up and there was a further text message and voicemail message.

‘I remember I was doing my make-up and getting ready for work and I saw that he was calling but I didn’t want to pick up. He left a message saying: ‘Hi, I just wanted to hear your voice before I start my day’.

‘Everyday I looked at my phone there was something from him whether it be a text message, missed call or a voicemail message.

‘As soon as I knew the flowers had been sent I knew that they would be from Dr Uzoh – there weren’t many people who knew my address at the time.

“You’re being too full on – I’ve only met you once and I was your patient!’” she said.

‘Our live response was also not appropriate, we should have intervened quickly. We apologise to our viewers,’ he added.

North Korea Releases Its Own ‘IPad’ which contains 40 Apps only

A North Korean tech company has launched its own tablet computer, called the “Ryonghung iPad.”
Despite the similarities in name, the tablet doesn’t have much in common with Apple’s well-known gadget .

Kim Jong Un

According to an advertising campaign spotted in a foreign trade magazine, the North Korean iPad only has 40 apps to choose from and 8GB of internal storage space.

However, it will allow users to look at documents and “read different sources of digital information” as well as coming with a keyboard attachment.

According to the advertising campaign, the tablet was first revealed at a North Korean expo in 2016 and has become massively popular among North Koreans.

Among the apps are a calculator, a dictionary and a farming app. There is also an app that comes on an SD card that can “diagnose up to 1,200 ailments.”

It’s unlikely the company behind the tablet, Myohyang IT, will be attempting to market the Ryonghung iPad outside of North Korea.

However the young singer was left understandably shaken by the ordeal, and a source close to the singer has admitted that ‘Ariana’s new security team consists of ex-military and is said to be the best in the business’.

Speaking to Radar Online they added: ‘She is going to have 24-hour surveillance from now on, no matter what the cost is.’

The One Love Manchester Benefit Concert will take place at Emirates Old Trafford Cricket Ground on Sunday June 4 to raise money for the victims of the Manchester terror attack and their families; proceeds will go to the We Love Manchester Emergency Fund, which was set up by the Manchester City Council in partnership with the British Red Cross to aid the families of the victims, and those who were at the concert on May 22 will get their tickets for free.

According to People magazine the singer, 23, was ‘absolutely crushed and devastated’ by the incident.

A source said: ‘It’s so, so sad. She loves her fans and is absolutely crushed and devastated as you can imagine. She can’t believe this happened. She just wants to be with her family and loved ones right now.’

JUST IN: EU and China rebuff Trump on climate

EU and China rebuff Trump on climate

Chinese and EU leaders are to agree a joint statement on the Paris climate agreement saying it is “an imperative more important than ever”.

A draft of the document, seen by the BBC, stresses the “highest political commitment” to implement the deal.

It will be widely seen as a rebuff to the US, as President Trump prepares to announce on Thursday if the US is withdrawing from the accord.

The joint statement will be published on Friday after a summit in Brussels.

For more than a year, Chinese and EU officials have been working behind the scenes to agree a joint statement on climate change and clean energy.

The document highlights the dangers posed by rising temperatures, “as a national security issue and multiplying factor of social and political fragility,” while pointing out that the transition to clean energy creates jobs and economic growth.

“The EU and China consider the Paris agreement as an historic achievement further accelerating the irreversible global low greenhouse gas emission and climate resilient development,” the draft document says.

“The Paris Agreement is proof that with shared political will and mutual trust, multilateralism can succeed in building fair and effective solutions to the most critical global problems of our time. The EU and China underline their highest political commitment to the effective implementation of the Paris Agreement in all its aspects.”

Both sides say they will step up action to and “forge ahead with further policies and measures” to implement their national plans on cutting carbon. Significantly, both the EU and China agree that they will outline their long term low carbon strategies by 2020.
