Family of bride who died days after fairytale wedding share heartbreaking video

The family of Ashleigh Simrajh, 23, who died from cancer one month ago, have released her intimate wedding video to continue spreading her powerful message, and thank the local community for their support.

Last month, doctors told the terminally-ill young woman she had just days to live, but Ashleigh, who was diagnosed with melanoma, fought like a “superstar” marrying the love of her life, Jason Hale, in an emotional ceremony on the Gold Coast.

“Ashleigh pushed through until her wedding and lasted another 10 days after that which was an absolute bonus for us,” her distraught father Tony Simrajh told news.com.au.

The Queensland woman lost her battle on September 13, more than a year after health practitioners advised her the lump on her leg was probably a wart.

Right up until her passing and despite her deteriorating condition, Ashleigh was still doing interviews

From Good Housekeeping

While Parkinson’s disease affects men twice more often than women—Michael J. Foxx has been one of the most famous to be afflicted by it—data shows that women experience a faster progression of the disease and a higher mortality rate.

With symptoms like tremors, rigid muscles, slowed movements, and speech changes, a Parkinson’s diagnosis can wreak havoc on the body. These four women, who have been living with Parkinson’s for up to two decades, open up about what they wish they knew when they were first diagnosed, including how important it is to have a rock solid support network.

“You can live a great life with Parkinson’s, but you have to accept help along the way.”

NEWTOWN SQUARE, Pa. (AP) Brittany Lincicome brought 16-month-old daughter Emery to a recent practice round at Aronimink Golf Club and let her run around the course and plop down on mom’s pink golf bag.

Back home with dad, the TV was on for the family to watch Brittany do what she does best, as one of the tour’s bigger hitters regularly found the greens she needed to emerge as a contender for another major victory.

Emmanuelle Charpentier (L) and Jennifer Doudna began a formidable partnership in 2011

Two scientists have been awarded the 2020 Nobel Prize in Chemistry for developing the tools to edit DNA.

Emmanuelle Charpentier and Jennifer Doudna are the first two women to share the prize, which honours their work on the technology of genome editing.

Their discovery, known as Crispr-Cas9 “genetic scissors”, is a way of making specific and precise changes to the DNA contained in living cells.

They will split the prize money of 10 million krona (£861,200; $1,110,400).

Biological chemist Pernilla Wittung-Stafshede, commented: “The ability to cut DNA where you want has revolutionised the life sciences.”

Not only has the women’s technology been transformative for basic research, it could also be used to treat inherited illnesses.

Prof Charpentier, from the Max Planck Unit for the Science of Pathogens in Berlin, said it was

Women Entrepreneurs Share How They Increased Revenue During Covid. And How You Can, Too.

A recent report by Morning Consult highlights an unfair division of labor between couples when it comes to household work and homeschooling, even when both parents are working remotely.

While nearly 50 percent of men say they do most of the homeschooling, a whopping three percent of women agree with them. When asked “Who is currently most responsible for housework, such as cooking and cleaning?” sixty-seven percent of women say they are, but only sixteen percent of men agree with them. This study not only points to an imbalance of responsibilities, it shows that most men — myself included — are completely unaware of it.

Two women share Nobel chemistry prize for gene-editing discoveries

This year’s Nobel Prize in chemistry has been awarded to Emmanuelle Charpentier of France and Jennifer Doudna of the US for their pioneering work in developing the Crispr gene editing technique that has transformed biology research.

The “genetic scissors” developed by Professors Charpentier and Doudna have had a transformational impact, enabling researchers to change the DNA of animals, plants and microbes far more precisely than older genetic engineering techniques.

“It has not only revolutionised basic science but also resulted in innovative crops and will lead to groundbreaking new medical treatments,” said Claes Gustafsson, chair of the Nobel Committee for Chemistry, on Wednesday.

The chemistry prize has never before been shared by two women. “My wish is that this will provide a positive message to the young girls who would like to follow the path of science, and to show them that women in science can also have an impact through

Readers Share Their Best Unexpected Wedding Photos

Inspired by Alix Strauss’s article where wedding photographers shared their favorite wedding photos, we asked readers to submit their own candid, unscripted photos from their special day. Here is a selection of their cherished moments (all from weddings long before social distancing was upon us). From an explosion of laughter at the altar, to an unexpected trash the dress (and tux) session, these photos prove that the best moments are sometimes unplanned.

Uncle Jack was more than a surrogate grandfather, he was also an amazing friend to me. He and Aunt Joan married when both were 20 or younger — they fell in love when he was at basic training on the way to the European theater in World War II and she a teenager living in Beloit, Wis. They were married for more than 60 years and genuinely in love the entire time. Our
