    On Wednesday, November 24 — the day before Thanksgiving 2021 — a verdict was handed down in the trial of the three Georgia men involved in the murder and lynching of Ahmaud Arbery. Travis McMichael, who shot and killed the unarmed Arbery at point-blank range, his father Greg McMichael, and their neighbor William "Roddie" Bryan were all found guilty of murder as well as aggravated assault and false imprisonment. Liberal Washington Post opinion writer Eugene Robinson applauds this verdict in a November 24 column, stressing that it sends out a vitally important message that lynching "will be punished." The 25-year-old Arbery was out jogging in Glynn County, Georgia on February 23, 2020 when the men chased after him. Arbery was minding his own business and doing nothing wrong. The defendants claimed that they went after him because they suspected him of burglary, but there was absolutely no evidence of that — and when Travis McMichael fatally shot Arbery, the unarmed man had no way of defending himself. "The killing of Ahmaud Arbery, a young Black man who had the gall...
    (CNN)Three men convicted Wednesday in the death of Ahmaud Arbery each faced nine possible charges that stemmed from their involvement in the 2020 shooting near Brunswick, Georgia. But the verdicts rendered by the jury on some of the allegations differed. Gregory McMichael and William "Roddie" Bryan Jr. were convicted on four and three of the counts of felony murder, respectively. Gregory's son, Travis McMichael, was also found guilty on multiple counts of felony murder and was the only one of the three found to have committed malice murder.The difference between the malice and felony murder charges has to do with intent, CNN senior legal analyst Elie Honig said.Guilty verdicts in Ahmaud Arberys murder trial were an answer to prayers, family says. Heres what comes nextMalice murder means the jury determined that Travis McMichael, who was the defendant that shot Arbery, intended to kill Arbery and did, Honig said. Gregory McMichael's and Bryan's felony murder convictions mean that they intentionally committed a felony.Travis McMichael's attorneys argued that he acted in self-defense when shooting Arbery. The three men suspected Arbery of committing...
    A group of four black men known as the 'Groveland Four' were posthumously exonerated in a Florida courtroom after they were wrongly accused of raping a 17-year-old girl at gunpoint in 1949.  The four men -  Charles Greenlee, Walter Irvin, Samuel Shepherd, and Ernest Thomas - who ranged in age from 16 to 26 - had been accused by Norma Padgett in 1949 and sparked a manhunt throughout the small town of Groveland, a town 30 miles west of Orlando. Black residents suffered racist violence, with a mob hunting down Thomas and killing him by shooting him 400 times. Shepherd was shot dead by cops two years later while being driven to the rape trial.   But the now 72-year-old case has finally been settled with all four men after Administrative Judge Heidi Davis dismissed the indictments of Thomas and Shepherd, both of whom were shot dead in the wake of the allegations, and setting aside the convictions of Greenlee and Irvin.  The members of the Groveland Four were previously pardoned by the Florida Clemency Board, which was led by Governor...
    CHICAGO (CBS) — Two young men were charged Wednesday in a shooting that killed one armored car guard and critically wounded another – as well as another shooting shortly afterward that left two of their suspected accomplices dead, and the robbery of a cellphone store in between. Police Supt. David Brown announced that Antoine Montgomery, 19, and Deandre Jennings, 21, have both been charged with first-degree murder and attempted first-degree murder in the incident on Tuesday in Auburn Gresham.

Montgomery is further charged with one count of armed robbery and unlawful restraint in the robbery of a Boost Mobile store in South Shore. Brown said officers put their own safety at great risk to apprehend the “very violent” offenders – an effort that involved a SWAT team....
    For the first time in the United States' 245-year history, American women could be required to sign up for the Selective Service after legislation expanding the draft is expected to get the green light from Congress, a report out Wednesday stated.   A measure changing the requirements for the Selective Service from male-only to 'all Americans' could pass the Senate as early as this week, according to Axios.   The question of who should be compelled to serve has been debated in the US for years. Now it looks likely to pass with a bipartisan coalition of support.  Wednesday's report notes the backers include veterans, feminists and even traditional Republicans - lawmakers ranging from Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell to Democrat Illinois Senator Tammy Duckworth have said it's time to expand the draft to women. Opposition has been relatively scant - about a dozen Republican senators have stood against the measure. Lawmakers who oppose the Selective Service in general could also vote against the bill. Earlier this month, Missouri Senator Josh Hawley introduced an amendment to strip the gender-neutral Selective Service language...
    Prosecutors in Ghislaine Maxwell’s sex trafficking case plan to reveal emails showing her setting up ‘powerful men with women they would like’. In a court filing, the lead attorney claims the messages show the 59-year-old British socialite ‘using her ability to provide access to women as a form of social currency’. Maxwell, the alleged madam for paedophile financier Jeffrey Epstein, was ‘eager to please’ the men and wanted to ‘ingratiate’ herself with them by making connections with women. Awaiting trial: Ghislaine Maxwell is accused of trafficking girls for sex The 84-page court document does not mention the men by name. New York prosecutors plan to offer several emails that show ‘the defendant took steps to please other influential men [than Epstein] by providing them access to women she selected for them’. It claims: ‘These exhibits show (1) the defendant’s willingness to facilitate encounters between powerful men and women they would like, and (2) the defendant’s understanding that providing such access is a way to ingratiate herself with powerful men.

    Fashion firm United Colors of Benetton is selling a new range of unisex hijabs. The Italian brand is flogging the items in black, red, green and yellow for £29.95. One woman said it had left her 'crying of laughter and desperation' after the headwear was spotted today.

    A mother says she's happily married to her gay husband - and they keep their relationship on track with weekly sex feedback sessions. Brynn Embley, 35, from Ypsilanti, Michigan, describes herself as straight while her husband Matthew Nielson, 33, identifies as gay or pansexual, and says he is 'more attracted to men than women.' The couple have been dating since 2017 and share two daughters: Amandine, two and Guinevere, one.  The pair are members of the of Church of Jesus Christ and Latter Day Saints - a faith which doesn't condone same sex relationships - and Matthew admits the idea of being single and celibate forever was a strong motivating factor for dating women.  He dated men and women before he committed to Brynn - but had never had sex with anyone, including her, before they tied the knot.  The unconventional pair keep their relationship on track with therapy and weekly sex discussions calendared in for every Thursday, where they offer each other feedback and tips.

    NEW ORLEANS (AP) — Three men have pleaded guilty in connection with a summer shooting that left a 12-year-old New Orleans girl dead and outraged a city already struggling with a rise in murders. The Times-Picayune / The New Orleans Advocate reported that the parents of Todriana Peters were in the courtroom Wednesday when the three men pleaded guilty. One man, Pernell Young, admitted to opening fire during the May 30 shooting outside a graduation party while prosecutors said the other two — 18-year-old Marcus Venible, and 19-year-old Tyrese Riley — were not shooters. Peters’ death was part of a wave of homicides starting last year that has rattled the city. After a 2019 that marked the lowest number of homicides in nearly half a century, New Orleans saw the number of people killed skyrocket in 2020. This year homicides are up 5% over the same time period last year, according to information on the City Council’s website. Assistant District Attorney Alex Calenda told the court that Young, Venible and Riley were in a pair of cars on their way...
    A RING worn around the penis could help men figure out what’s causing their erectile dysfunction, and could even signal a deadly disease. It’s the first ever modern wearable “erection tracker” that gives clues into a man’s health. 2Men can struggle with getting erections for various reasons, but may never find out whyCredit: Getty Erections - or lack of them - can indicate a number of physical and mental health problems.  More often than not men who suffer with erectile dysfunction struggle to work out why, further causing emotional or relationship stress. But while it’s easy to assume erections are a signal of libido or bedroom performance, they in fact reveal a lot more about men’s health, especially as they get older.  The Adam Sensor is attached to the base of the penis with a band and worn overnight. It is comfortable to wear under pajamas and is almost unnoticeable, the creators say. It counts how many erections a man has during his sleep. Night time erections indicate the erection mechanism is in check - even if it does not...
    An evolutionary biologist was censored by Instagram after the woke social media giant removed his post about a transgender study by a prominent medical journal that said biological men were superior to cisgendered women in a wide range of sports.  The study - titled Transgender Women in the Female Category of Sport: Perspectives on Testosterone Suppression and Performance Advantage - was published in Medicine & Sports in Sports & Exercise, a peer-reviewed science journal founded in 1969 and conducted by researchers at University of Manchester and Karolinska University Hospital, Stockholm.  Colin Wright, who has written for the Wall Street Journal and was in academia for 12 years, posted a chart from the study showing that cisgendered males have a performance advantage over cigendered females across many Olympics-contested sports.  Colin Wright's Instagram post featuring a scientific chart showing males have a performance advantage over females across a range of sports was removed for hate speech The chart was taken from a study published in Medicine & Sports in Sports & Exercise, which tested if the International Olympic Committee's guidelines for transgender athletes eliminated the...
    THE HAGUE, Netherlands (AP) — Two men were convicted Monday and sentenced to 30 years in prison for the murder of a Dutch lawyer who represented a witness in a high-profile criminal case against suspected gangland bosses, a slaying that shocked the nation and sparked calls for a tougher crackdown on organized crime. The lawyer, 44-year-old Derk Wiersum, was gunned down on Sept. 18, 2019, outside his home in Amsterdam by a man who then fled in a getaway car that was waiting nearby. Police found DNA traces of both defendants in the getaway car and other vehicles used in the days before the shooting to monitor Wiersum’s movements. “With their brutal act, the men have shown a complete lack of respect for the life of another,” Amsterdam District Court said in a summary of the written verdicts. “Solely for money, they took Wiersum’s life and inflicted immense and irreparable suffering on his wife, children, parents and other relatives.” Prosecutors said that mobile phone data also showed that both men were in the area at the time of the killing...
    A transgender man claims women should date trans men because they 'know how the vagina works' - leaving blokes threatened as he can 'take their girlfriends off them whenever he wants'. In a series of TikTok videos, Demitri Rodriguez claims that women who have been to bed with him vow to nly date trans men from ten on, and also says that trans men have better fashion sense and are unlikely to abandon a woman after having a baby. The 22-year-old, from Stratford-upon-Avon, Warwickshire, has since been bombarded with flirty messages from hundreds of female admirers swayed by his case, demanding to know how they can get a date with the smooth talker. He believes women have always been more accepting of trans men and claims men feel threatened by him because they know he 'could turn around and take their girlfriend off them if he wanted to'. Demitri has been hailed as a 'win-win' by female commenters who insisted trans men are 'more loyal' and that cisgender men - men who identify with the sex they were born - 'didn't...
    AN NHS doctor has revealed the most dangerous sex position for getting penis fractures. According to the medic, who moonlights as a TikTok star, amorous sessions using this style is the cause of 50 per cent of the horror injuries. 2The NHS doctor claims he know what the most dangerous sex position is for penis fracturesCredit: Jam Press Dr Karan Rangarjan revealed the position most likely to lead to a dash to hospital to his 4.3 million followers. He announced the reverse cowgirl is the most risky - as if there is any "erratic thrusting" during intercourse or if the two parties are not in sync it can go horribly wrong. The doctor explained this is because the penis can slip out and be crushed by their partner's pubic bone, causing a fracture. He warned "over enthusiastic sex could lead to your penis looking like an aubergine". Although the penis is boneless, the word "fracture" is used to describe a tear in the tunica albuginea - a piece of fibrous tissue that connects the framework of the testis and allows...
    Fewer and fewer men want to go to college. According to a recent article in the Wall Street Journal they are now trailing female college students at record levels. At the close of the 2021-2022 academic year women made up 59.5% of college students, which is an all time high, and men made up 40.5%. All told, U.S colleges and universities have 1.5 million fewer students compared with five years ago, and men accounted for 71% of the decline. The main question coming out of this study is - why is college and its intended experience being sold effectively to American women as necessary to advance in their lives but not to American men? There are all the obvious reasons men are opting out of college in a post-covid world. What was once seen as an almost necessary next step in order to launch into adulthood is now getting a second look. The rising cost of college is leaving young adults entering their twenties with hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of debt for degrees with little guarantee of a...
    China will ban video games that feature gay relationships, 'effeminate males' or allow players the choice of being good or evil. In a leaked memo, Beijing said it no longer sees games as 'entertainment', but instead as a form of art that must promote what it considers 'correct values' and an 'accurate understanding' of history and culture.  As such, the ban will also prohibit video games that involve the conquest of 'barbarians' or attempt to alter the history of the Nazis or imperial Japan, according to the memo seen by the South China Morning Post. A commuter walks by a computer and mobile phone's RPG game advertised at a subway station in Beijing last month. China has announced it will ban video games that feature gay relationships, 'effeminate males' or allow players the choice of being good or evil In August, China limited children to three hours a week of online gaming in what it said is an attempt to curb addiction, with the latest ban representing another step in the CCP's cultural crackdown, led by president Xi Xinping.

    It's a truly shocking, gut-wrenching photograph: a furious mounted US Border Patrol agent on horseback wrestling with a desperate Haitian migrant trying to get into an encampment on the banks of the Rio Grande in Del Rio, Texas. The white agent is wielding his horse's long reins in an aggressive way that some believe was akin to whipping the black migrant, conjuring vile memories of the horrific days of American slavery. But the agents involved later angrily denied this, saying that anyone with 'two brain cells' would know they were using their split reins to control their horses in the melee. Either way, it's a deeply distressing snapshot of a major new immigration crisis on the southern border. And nobody was more appalled than President Biden whose press secretary Jen Psaki described the footage as 'horrific', 'horrible' and 'devastating to watch'. The migrant, clutching plastic bags of food, is one of many thousands of refugees who've sought asylum in America since Haiti was thrown into turmoil by the assassination of its president, Jovenel Moïse, in July, and a massive earthquake...
    Thousands of men could live longer with prostate cancer after taking a new drug combination. Around 10,000 men a year in the UK are estimated to have an aggressive form of prostate cancer, which is normally treated with hormone therapy and radiotherapy. A study found also giving them a drug called abiraterone halves their risk of dying from the cancer over six years. Abiraterone was denied to men with more advanced prostate cancer in January, after the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence, which approves drugs, ruled it was not cost-effective and should not be offered routinely. The expensive daily tablets cost £35,500 a year privately, although how much the NHS pays is not known. However the new British-led trial in a different group of men, whose prostate cancer had not spread, found abiraterone, taken for just two years, greatly improved their chances of survival. Experts hope the drug could be made available on the NHS ‘soon’ following the results.  Thousands of men could live longer with prostate cancer after taking a new drug combination. Around 10,000 men...
    New research suggests that the story which the 12 Angry Men writer claimed inspired him is actually a work of fiction. The 1957 film, which was written by Reginald Rose, focused on the story of 12 members of a jury as they debated whether to convict of acquit an 18-year-old defendant. Henry Fonda stars as the lone individual attempting to convince his fellow jury members to acquit the teenager of the killing of his father. The film wrestles with issues such as morality, racism and the legal concept of reasonable doubt.  New research suggests that the story which the 12 Angry Men (pictured) writer claimed inspired him is actually a work of fiction Professor Phil Rosenzweig However, Professor Phil Rosenzweig, who is penning an upcoming biography, managed to identify the court case which the film is allegedly based on - only to discover Rose did not serve on the jury, The Telegraph reports. The business professor at the Institute for Management Development in Lausanne, used clues previously mentioned by Rose to identify the case - he believes Rose was...
    (CNN)Boston is poised to make history in November with two women of color competing for a mayor's seat that has been occupied by White men for the last 200 years.City Councilors Michelle Wu, an Asian American, and Annissa Essaibi George, a first-generation American whose father emigrated from Tunisia and whose mother was born in Germany to Polish parents, claimed the two top spots in Tuesday's primary, forcing City Councilor Andrea Campbell and Acting Mayor Kim Janey to concede. Campbell and Janey's losses dashed the hopes of many Boston residents and community leaders who believed it was time for a Black woman to break the glass ceiling as the city struggles with an enormous wealth gap, unequal economic opportunity and segregated neighborhoods. In one of America's oldest cities, the median net worth for White families is nearly $250,000 compared to just $8 for Black families, according to a 2015 study by the Federal Reserve Bank of Boston. "But a closer look at the Fed study shows the net worth of Black families in Greater Boston is more nuanced," according to a...
    TOO many Brits are unaware of a cancer-causing virus that affects eight in ten adults.  HPV (human papilloma virus), in most cases, is nothing to worry about.   2HPV virus pictured infecting cells under the microscopeCredit: Getty - Contributor But for a minority of people, it causes cancers seen in both men and women. Three in ten adults have never heard of HPV, according to a YouGov survey on behalf of The Eve Appeal, a gynaecological cancer charity. There are more than 100 types of HPV, but only some of them are high risk. It affects 80 per cent of people at some point in their lives, spreading through any type of sexual skin-to-skin contact.  But it is not a “dirty” infection related to promiscuity, says Dr Naomi Sutton, a sexual health consultant on Channel 4's Sex Clinic. And even if you are not currently sexually active, it does not mean you are free of the bug - even virgins can get it if they have done foreplay. Dr Sutton said:  “Too often I hear the words ‘clean’ and ‘dirty’ used...
    CHICAGO (CBS) — A series of rapid-fire crimes early Thursday struck a community already grappling with a spike in crime as it is. Overnight, there were three robberies in River North – including one where a man was shot – all within about half an hour. And as CBS 2’s Tara Molina reported Thursday evening, all that happened after Chicago Police added extra foot patrols and officers.

    PARIS (AP) – In a secure complex embedded within a 13th-century courthouse, France on Wednesday will begin the trial of 20 men accused in the Islamic State group´s 2015 attacks on Paris that left 130 people dead and hundreds injured. Nine gunmen and suicide bombers struck within minutes of each other at France’s national soccer stadium, the Bataclan concert hall and Paris restaurants and cafes on Nov. 13, 2015. Survivors of the attacks as well as those who mourn their dead are expected to pack the rooms, which were designed to hold 1,800 plaintiffs and 350 lawyers. The lone survivor of the extremist cell from that night, Salah Abdeslam, is the key defendant among those being tried for the deadliest attack in France since World War II. He is the only one charged with murder. The same IS network went on to strike Brussels months later, killing another 32 people.

    Bette Midler has taken to her Twitter account to protest Texas' recently-enacted abortion bill. The 75-year-old actress has been very active on the social media platform over the past few days and has made several statements to express her dissatisfaction over the highly controversial political action. The Primetime Emmy-winning performer notably remarked that women should withhold sex until the bill is overturned.  Speaking out: Bette Midler suggested that women should withhold sex from men in protest of Texas' recently-enacted abortion bill; she is seen in 2019 'I suggest that all women refuse to have sex with men until they are guaranteed the right to choose by Congress,' she wrote.

    Kelsey Grammer has no qualms revisiting the past. The actor is currently starring in the indie dramedy "Charming the Hearts of Men," which takes place in the politically charged ‘60s. It follows a woman named Grace Gordon (Anna Friel) who returns from the big city to her Southern home after the sudden death of her father. While Gordon attempts to settle his affairs, the grieving daughter soon realizes that she, along with the marginalized women she encounters, have nearly no power without a male provider. With the help of a congressman (Grammer) Gordon aims to make a lasting mark on our nation.

    A tiny spring could help ease symptoms of an enlarged prostate, which affects millions of men. The spring, roughly the size of a paperclip, is implanted under local anaesthetic and then expands to prop open the urethra, the tube urine passes through, which narrows when the prostate enlarges, causing problems going to the loo. More than half of men over 50 have benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), a condition in which the prostate — a small gland in the pelvis — becomes enlarged (often as part of the ageing process), narrowing parts of the urinary tract. Hundreds of men are taking part in five clinical trials to see if the implant — which is designed to be permanent, although it can be removed if necessary — helps with BPH symptoms This causes a range of uncomfortable symptoms, such as frequent trips to the loo and difficulty in fully emptying the bladder. It is estimated that three million men have urinary tract symptoms as a result of BPH. Treatment involves lifestyle changes, such as consuming fewer fluids in the evenings, as well...
    The Jacksonville Historical Society unearthed previously and purposely buried video of 'Ax Handle Saturday,' a white mob's brutal racist beating of black people - including children and teenagers - on August 28, 1960.  The attack received little media attention at the time, and a media blackout ensured footage like this wouldn't be seen and the mayor at the time could deny it ever happened.  The 44-second, soundless clip shows angry hoards of white men armed with ax handles and other weapons chasing down black people after a sit-in demonstration at a diner.  The video shows the attack from different angles. At the 16-second mark, the video shows an aerial view of white men swinging ax handles at a black man.  The graphic footage continues with white men ganging up on black people, punching him and knocking them to the ground while white police officers watched.   WARNING: GRAPHIC FOOTAGE  A mob of white men ganged up on black people and beat them with ax handles and other weapons Black people were punched, beaten and thrown to the ground while...
    A NEW study has finally put to bed the question of whether size really matters. Men have often been told it’s not the length of their penis that gives a woman pleasure, but what they do with it. 1Most men's penises are somewhere around 3.75 inches long when floppy and between five and seven inches when erectCredit: Getty However, research from King’s College London puts that theory into doubt. Twelve couples were recruited for the study, published in the BJU International journal. Each couple was given a set of silicone rings of varying sizes.  When the ring is placed onto the base of the man’s penis, by his pelvic bone, it reduces how far he can enter his girlfriend or wife by between 0.5 and two inches.  The larger the ring, the more reduced the male’s depth, and therefore “penis size”, was. The men self-reported an average penis size of 6.6 inches when erect, which was considered above average. Couples were told to have sex either three, four or five times for each ring the guy put on. But the...
    The party that promotes itself as champions of inclusion, diversity, and tolerance has no problem spewing racial invective as long as black conservatives are the target. There have been multiple instances over the last year alone when the left's racism has been on public display. Women's March co-founder Tamika Mallory compared Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron to "sellout negroes" who sold their own people into slavery. She said this because Cameron declined to bring charges against the officers who shot and killed Breonna Taylor. Megachurch preacher Jamal Bryant invoked the legacy of Harriet Tubman when he called black Trump supporters at the Republican National Convention "slaves" who could be freed if they realized they were in bondage. One self-described radical feminist college professor claimed black men voted for Trump to replicate the patriarchy and status white men enjoy. And a failed Florida congressional candidate said "20% of black men voted for Trump because they hate black women." It's not just black liberals who engage in this behavior. One white congressional candidate in California responded to a Candace Owens...

    A black couple from Georgia have died of COVID-19 after refusing to get vaccinated because they didn't trust it - due, in part, to past racist medical experiments in which black men from Tuskegee were denied treatment for syphilis. Martin, 53, and Trina Daniel, 49, of Savannah succumbed to the virus within three hours of each other. They died on July 6. The couple, who were married for 22 years, are survived by their two children - a 15-year-old daughter and an 18-year-old son. Funeral services for the couple were held on Saturday. Their deaths were first reported by WSB-TV in Atlanta. Family members said that the couple was fearful of getting vaccinated because they distrusted the medical establishment in light of the infamous Tuskegee Syphilis Experiment.  When Alabama and the rest of the South were still segregated by race, government medical workers starting in 1932 withheld treatment for unsuspecting men infected with syphilis in Tuskegee and surrounding Macon County so physicians could track the disease. The study, which involved about 600 men, ended in 1972 only after it was revealed...

    Surrogate sex therapy is a controversial topic, but in Israel it's become a vital tool to help rehabilitate the likes of those injured in traffic accidents and serving in its military.  A 'sex surrogate' is a trained sex partner who helps clients practice intimate physical contact to work through problems that are preventing them from having normal, healthy sexual relationships.  Many patients - both men and women - have been through sexual or military trauma, or physical disability. A pioneering clinic in Tel Aviv, run by psychologist Dr Ronit Aloni, is helping them rehabilitate.  Patients are matched with a compatible surrogate with whom they work over five months, along with the therapist, Dr Aloni, learning every detail of interaction and relating; how to speak, touch, walk alongside someone of the opposite sex, and later, the physical aspects. The process is spread over 21 weeks and costs around £11,000, and ends when the clinic is confident that the patient is functioning physically as well as emotionally. In the wake of a year of brutal lockdowns, the pandemic has led to a surge...

    A simple thumb test could be used to identify people at risk of a condition that can kill in minutes and has no symptoms. It will indicate if a person is harbouring an aortic aneurysm — an abnormal bulge in the wall of the major blood vessel that can prove fatal if undetected. An aortic aneurysm can cause discomfort, but most people are not aware that they have one until it is picked up on a scan.  Worryingly, if it ruptures, it causes mass internal bleeding, which is usually fatal. Scroll down for video Here is the test: Hold your hand up as if you're telling someone to stop (1). With your palm flat, stretch your thumb as far as you can across it, towards your little finger. If your thumb reaches the middle of the palm (2) that is normal. However, if it stretches past the edge of your hand (3), researchers say this may be a sign of an aortic aneurysm and you should get it checked WHAT ARE AORTIC ANEURYSMS AND WHY ARE THEY SO DEADLY?
