In the Times piece( read it HERE again, or if you haven’t hitherto ), Thurman alleges that Tarantino held she drive the car for a stunt in Kill Bill, despite Uma questioning specifically for a stunt person to do so because she didn’t feel safe.
The result was a car crash that left Uma with back and leg traumata that persevere to this day…and most recently has she been able to get footage of the incident itself to use in her arguments.
Now, other celebs are coming forward in Uma’s defense and announcing out Tarantino.
You can check out those reactions( below ):
When cases of violence against dames is used as a patch machine to shape the specific characteristics stronger then we have a problem. It is not empowering to be beaten and crimes, yet so many movies make it their ‘pheonix’ moment for women. We don’t need abuse in order to be powerful. We already are. — Jessica Chastain (@ jes_chastain) February 4, 2018
Chairman placing themselves into a scene depicting defamation is sweeping a frontier. How can an actor seem safe when your head is suffocating you? — Jessica Chastain (@ jes_chastain) February 4, 2018
I maintain guessing Tarantino spewing in Uma’s face and strangling her with a series for KILL BILL. How numerous portraits of women in media do we celebrate that showcase defamation? When did this become normalized ‘entertainment’? — Jessica Chastain (@ jes_chastain) February 4, 2018
Tarantino also ignored Daryl Hannah’s objections when she was molested by Harvey Weinstein.They kicked her off the press tour.Nobody facilitated her. And now Tarantino is going to make a movie about Polanski. Why is person financing this? This is why Weinstein wasn’t stopped. $$$$ https :// t.co/ WlSVFEoVN4 — Judd Apatow (@ JuddApatow) February 3, 2018
Love you Uma. You have always been an inspiration to me. Thank you for your merciless integrity. Not just about Harvey but about the risks we sometimes take with our lives. | This Is Why Uma Thurman Is Angry – The New York Times https :// t.co/ 2MbKB05Xtz — #EvanRachelWould (@ evanrachelwood) February 3, 2018
Weinstein and Tarantino, what a duet! A serial rapist and a near murderer. It’s no fucking joke what these abhorrent felons did to Uma Thurman, before and after #KillBill. They introduced her life, her glory, her sanity in danger. Burn in blaze you sick fuckings. pic.twitter.com/ VpD2oT 1ETZ — Asia Argento (@ AsiaArgento) February 3, 2018

Just a coincidence? Probably not. Doctors see the opposite trend in the fall: on the Tuesday after we turn back the clocks, heart attack visits drop 21% as people get a little extra pillow time.
The reason that springing the clocks forward can kill us comes down to interrupted sleep schedules. This Sunday, instead of the clock turning from 1:59 to 2:00 a.m. as usual, it will jump an hour to 3:00 a.m.
“That’s how fragile and susceptible your body is to even just one hour of lost sleep,” sleep expert Matthew Walker, author of How We Sleep, previously told Business Insider.
Walker said this “global experiment” we perform twice a year is a sign of how sensitive our bodies are to the whims of changing schedules: in the fall, the shift is a blessing, and in the spring, it’s a fatal curse.
The tragic heart attack trend only lasts about a day, but our bodies may not fully recover from the springtime bump for weeks. We’re also prone to make more deadly mistakes on the roads. Researchers estimate that car crashes in the US caused by sleepy daylight-saving drivers likely cost 30 extra people their lives over the nine-year period from 2002-2011.
“The brain, by way of attention lapses and micro-sleeps, is just as sensitive as the heart to very small perturbations of sleep,” Walker explains in his book.
Nearly 20 years on from their moms death, William and Harry have spoken about their agony and childhood memories
Dressed as police, with toy helmets and walkie-talkies, or onboard the royal boat, Britannia, these photographs of Prince William and Prince Harry are from the personal book belonging to their baby, Diana, Princess of Wales, published for the first time to tag a documentary on their own lives to be providing information on Monday.
The now Duke of Cambridge and Harry have opened up publicly to communicate candidly about their bereavement, their loss, and coping without their father, who died after a automobile crash in Paris on 31 August 1997.
Twenty years on, they divulge their deep regret that their last conversation was a brief phone call from her in Paris that was cut short because they were playing with their cousins at Balmoral, the Queens Scottish estate.

Letters sent by Princess Diana to a Buckingham Palace official, including one expose that Prince Harry was “constantly in trouble” at boarding school, sold for thousands of dollars at a U.K. auction Thursday.
The six handwritten mentions were sent to Buckingham Palace Head Steward Cyril Dickman in the 1980 s and 90 s and give a captivating glimpse into the life of the princess.
The sons are well and experiencing boarding school although Harry is perpetually in disturbance! Princess Diana wrote, in one note, dated Oct. 17, 1992. We are off to Korea in November so a good place to do Christmas Shopping! she adds.
The letter on Kensington Palace notepaper, which had a pre-sale approximate of $745 to $1,117, was sold for $2,978 by auction room Cheffins Fine Art Thursday.

Another note was communicated simply a few daylights after Prince Harrys delivery in 1984. In the word Diana describes a particularly happy duration, Sky News reports. “William adores his little brother and wastes the entire hour flooding Harry with an endless supply of hugs and caress, just telling the mothers near! she added.
The letter, which also had a pre-sale think of $745 to $1,117, was auctioned for $3,972.
And a 1992 word in which Princess Diana thanked Dickman for his support after the deaths among her father was sold for $3,724.
A Cheffins spokeswoman described the artifacts as an historically important collecting of Royal notes and memorabilia, in an email to FoxNews.com, citing their direct acquaintance to a former member of the Royal household staff.

That’s why we recently reached out across the Upworthy Facebook, Twitter, and Tumblr accounts wants to see you, our readers, what was the single more valuable piece of advice you’ve ever welcomed. The refutes straddled from entertaining to serious to heartfelt and psychological.
Below, however, are 17 of our favourites.
1. Don’t complain about getting older: not everybody gets the privilege.
Over on our Facebook wall, Carol shared a short story about her husband of 21 years croaking of cancer. Her fib was fitted with flecks of advice about aging and relationships, and one wrinkle stood out: “Don’t confuse intelligence with maturity.”
2. On rapports always appreciate your friendships.
This piece of admonition comes from Rachel on the keys to a successful wedding. Over time, finds may change for the ones we desire, but so long as friendship is still a constant in “peoples lives”, it can work.
3. Keep moving forward, you’ll make it.
This story from Ketanie undertakes the aftermath of a serious automobile accident that left her in a lethargy. After she woke, she was told she might lose her leg and not walk again. She made it her purpose merely to move a bit each day, and after months, she’s back up and march, be permitted to take care of her daughters once again.
4. Too often, we’re too worried about what others think.
Sometimes we center too much on what other parties are doing, what credit other beings are get, and telling hatred of these individuals bring us down. When those minutes happen, it’s good to put one over the blinders and places great importance on what’s going on in our own lives.
5. You can’t see what others think of you.
Sienna shared this fleck of admonition, which has been attributed to perhaps close to a dozen roots( must be that good if everyone wants ascribe for it, right ?). But it’s true-blue: You can’t change what person “ve been thinking about” you. You can only change how “youre acting” and what the hell are you do. It’s up to them to change their taste.
6. Unsolicited advice should be taken with a grain of salt.
Ever have someone just come up to you and start offering up admonition about something you actually didn’t require anyone else’s belief on? It’s kind of pestering. Instead of offering unsolicited advice, offer to help, instead.
7. There’s no stair too small.
Terri expressed the view that after she had her first child, a friend offered her this fragment of advice: Too often, we try to do so much better or we look at the things that need to be done and find they just seem so overwhelming. Life doesn’t have to be so overwhelming. Just take occasions one stair at a time.
8. You’re your own worst antagonist. Be your own best friend instead.
If you’re anything like me, you’re likely your own worst critic when it comes to, well, everything. I like to think of myself as a good friend to others, but I’m surely not one to myself. Maybe if I introduce the same level of pity into how I consider myself as I plow others, I wouldn’t always feel so uneasy.
9. Don’t sweat the small stuff.
Patty wrote about a piece of advice her papa made her before she got married.
Now, to be clear, this isn’t a free pass to forget your spouse’s birthday( and no one should feel obligated to put up with someone being absolutely neglectful ). The quality here is that in the large-scale programme of things, any one single daylight is simply a fleeting instant. If you’re expend your life with person you affection, then every day is a gift.
10. Don’t set other people out; don’t give them down.
Whenever possible, avoid inconveniencing others( specially friends, pedigree, and loved ones ). If something you’re doing must inconvenience anyone, it might as well be you and not them, right?
On the flip side …
11. It’s OK to involved help.
In this submission, Wendy tells us about some advice her papa presented her. “People need to be needed, ” he informed her. If someone offers up facilitate, don’t are hesitant to take them up on it.
12. Nothing worth doing comes easy.
Life is full of risk-taking openings. And while the word “risk” implies that something could go wrong or thoughts could get worse, it also comes with the possibility that stuffs could get much, much better. Now, of course, a great many risks aren’t importance taking. Which ones you prosecute is wholly up to you.
13. Relationship advice is a difficult tightrope.
Alyssa wrote about a relationship she was in once that had taken a fee on her personal and professional life. It was toxic, and others around her knew it. While their recommendations isn’t for everyone( there are obviously some very real reasons why some people in lethal relations don’t or can’t leave ), for Alyssa, asking this question produced down the path to delight.
14. Belief about the future.
This advice, shared by Kate, is an important reality about living and sadnes regret both of which is something we do and what we don’t do. In her study as a harbour deputy, Kate took care of elderly people. One female handed her the simple-minded admonition to live life without regrets( which, hey, is pretty common advice, right ?) but when she elucidated it, it became course more profound.
15. Life’s not fair.
Eugene shared a storey about his growing up with brothers and sisters who had a tendency to take substance out of his room without allow. After complaining about it, he came to realize that simply deploring didn’t is everything. He had to accept and acknowledge the world for what it was( unfair) before he’d be able to change things for the better.
16. Revenge is a dish best served…
Melinda shares a classic bit of admonition right up there with “kill ’em with kindness.” Some people say, “Don’t get mad, get even.” Even better, though, is simply living well and letting those who’ve wronged you realize what they’ve missed out on( and hopefully learn from their misunderstandings ).
17. It doesn’t get any more basic than this: Be kind.
Maybe this to be said, but being category is one of best available happens any person can do for themselves, for those around them, for pals, for strangers, for family, and for the world.
Thanks to increasing safety standards, driving has all along been safer. Eventually, the proliferation of autonomous gondolas may usher in a age wherein virtually no vehicular accidents occur at all. However, just last year, there were at least 1. 25 million demises from industrial accidents worldwide far more than any other form of transport.
In fact, the stranges of dying in a car disintegrate are roughly one in 5,000. This can be to report to air travel, where health risks are as much as one in 11 million. In tell to highlight how hazardous driving a car can be, the Transport Accident Commission( TAC) of Victoria, Australia, are showcasing a rather unusual sculpture that depicts a human that has “evolved” specifically to survive automobile crashes.
As reported by the Smithsonian, the creation byMelbourne-based artist Patricia Piccinini is so otherworldly and terrifying that once you see it, you cant unsee it. With the aid of Christian Kenfield, a trauma surgeon at Royal Melbourne hospital, and David Logan, a clang investigate at Monash University, this artist has given life to nothing short of a physical monstrosity one that has been given the jarringly innocuous appoint of Graham.
Once you get past the revulsion generated by this thoroughly weird specter, you may begin to recognise that it has no neck. Numerous people involved in car crashes disable or even break their cervixes when their metal box on rotations comes to a sudden and drastic stop, but as Graham has no neck, he cannot possibly violate it. His reinforced skull is designed to stop his intelligence bouncing around in cases where there a high-speed collision.
His flat, fat-covered face is necessary that his nearly non-existent nose and ears will not be humbled against the steering wheel. This thick, tough scalp is bolstered by the pockets of breeze in-between his rib, all of which serve to act as a biological airbag to prevent harm to the internal organ. His knees, preferably disturbingly, bend in all directions, guarantee that a car accident wont verify them being snarled downwards in the wrong direction.
“Cars have derived a lot faster than humans, chief executive of the TAC, Joe Calafiore, told the Guardian. Graham helps us “understand what youre saying” we need to improve every aspect of our streets organization to protect ourselves from our own mistakes.”
Graham can be visited at the State Library of Victoria until August 8, after which he will go on a tour inAustralia. If you arent able to see him in person, then a instead odd 360 -degree view of the silicone, fiberglass, resin, and human mane carve can be if you click here.
Graham’s ribs is fraught with biological airbags. TAC Victoria
If you’ve tried to get painkillers from your doctor recently, or read literally any news story about white rural America, you know that we have an opioid epidemic. Fortunately, it turns out there is a clear, simple solution to the problem. Here’s a quote from Attorney General Jeff Sessions, breaking it down for the rest of us simple-minded shits:
“The plain fact is, I believe — and I am operating on the assumption that this country prescribes too many opioids — I mean, people need to take some aspirin sometimes and tough it out a little. That’s what General Kelly — you know, he’s a Marine — he had a surgery on his hand, a painful surgery … he goes, ‘I’m not taking any drugs. It did hurt though.’ He did admit it hurt. But, I mean, a lot of people, you can get through these things.”
As someone who lives with awful chronic pain, I of course agree with him. Sometimes you do have to just tough it out. It really is that simple. I’m not being sarcastic at all. Allow me to share my inspirational story.
Note: Former Cracked editor John Cheese is now the editor in chief of The Modern Rogue!
Simply Plan Your Entire Life Around The Pain
When I was a kid, I had a diving accident that did permanent damage to my neck and back. The details aren’t important — it really is the kind of thing that could have happened to any sensible person — but the result was that from ten feet in the air, I landed headfirst on a sandbar that was covered by just a couple of feet of water. I was completely vertical, like a goddamn Tom And Jerry cartoon. It hurt. And I didn’t even get the dignity of a wacky *boing!* sound.
As a result, for the last 30 years, I’ve dealt with chronic back pain. At its worst, it feels like a star collapsed inside my body. Sometimes, though, it changes gears and feels like someone hammered a red-hot nail into my neck and left it there. When that happens, sneezing or coughing will send a lightning bolt up my spine, a jolt of agony that makes me feel like I’m going to piss my pants. That can last for weeks. I’ve had broken bones that didn’t hurt like this. Other times, the muscles will suddenly get so weak that they just turn to Jell-O. Here, try this: Drop to the floor and do crunches until you physically can’t anymore, and then keep doing them for several more minutes. The muscle death you feel, coupled with that pulsating burn? That’s what I feel on most days, from sunup to sundown.
But I of course can power through it without the help of my painkiller prescription, via the irrepressible power of the human spirit. It just takes a little extra planning if I know I’m going to be doing anything extreme, like being on my feet for a couple of hours. For example, I recently took my daughter to the mall for some birthday shopping. After an hour and a half, I physically couldn’t walk anymore. By the time we got back to the car, I thought I was going to have to beg a stranger to help cram me into the driver’s seat, urging them to press on through my screams. Had I planned better, I could have simply quadrupled my dose of aspirin and Skyped with my daughter from the car while she shopped.
That’s the key to pain management: planning ahead and not doing the thing that causes you pain, and also remembering that nearly all things cause you pain. For instance, I pace when I talk on the phone. I can’t help it. This means a 20-minute phone call can potentially seize up my back so completely that I have to execute the sitting process in slow, gentle stages, looking like a GIF loading on a spotty LTE connection.
Of course, if I was smart, I would just stop talking on the phone forever. Or I could plan ahead by taking a few aspirin and toughing through that shit like a tank. I just need to cue up some Jeff Sessions and remember his inspirational words: “But, I mean, a lot of people, you can get through these things.”
Let Societal Scorn Work Its Magic
Over the past eight years, my wife has been through the following:
— An injury that resulted in two knee surgeries
— Her ACL torn right in half, resulting in a third
— Chronic migraines that regularly send her to the ER
— Fucking brain surgery
When her ACL popped, she couldn’t touch her foot to the floor without crying so hard that she was close to vomiting. After the first doctor visit, they sent her home with two ibuprofen and a pair of crutches. It wasn’t until a week later that they did a scan and saw the tear. Between this and her original surgeries, the doctors said she’d likely be in pain for the rest of her life. Yet any time she complains to them about the pain, they look at her like she’s trying to bullshit her way into some sweet, sweet drugs. As if she went into the joint and popped that ligament with a pair of bolt cutters just so she’d have the pretense to take an occasional flight on Opioid Airlines.
I get the same. Any time I have to ask for pain medication, it’s followed with a suspicious look and “Are you sure the ibuprofen isn’t helping?” I understand. Even though I’m just asking for weak-ass Tramadol (a synthetic opioid specifically designed to be less addictive), you can still get hooked on that. I’m aware that addicts fake their way into prescriptions all the time. I also know that they sell them on the streets, and to be perfectly honest, I’d have an easier time buying the pills off of them than getting them from an actual doctor. The doctor is the only one who will judge me as a piece of shit.
Fortunately, feeling like a scumbag addict is a great motivator for staying away from opioids, despite the fact that they do take away 100 percent of my pain and allow me to physically function through an average day. Politicians say you’re just weak. Perspective employers see you as a potential pill-popping train wreck. Co-workers and subordinates look at you like you’re Dr. House. Friends and family will compare your pain to theirs and blow it off. (“Your back hurts? That’s nothing. I lost three fingers working at the guillotine factory. You don’t see me suckin’ down pain pills”) I simply have to measure the physical pain against the psychological/emotional pain and realize that the latter is greater. Problem solved.
Trust The Professionals To Let You Know When To Endure Excruciating Pain
The absolute best way to stay away from opioids is to let the medical profession do what it’s currently doing: restrict the everloving shit out of them in a completely arbitrary way. For instance, did you know that CVS announced in late 2017 that they would be limiting opioid prescriptions to a seven-day supply? And that patients would have to try the immediate-release pills before switching to the much more effective extended-release pills that chronic pain sufferers need? Thank. God.
Here I was, worried about my own willpower and aspirin-taking toughness, when all I had to do was wait for doctors and pharmacies to step in and say, “We got ya, buddy. We will fucking die before letting you abuse your medication.” I wish they’d take it a step further and just have me come in every time I need an individual pill. Just hand it out at the counter with a little cup of water, like Nurse Ratched from One Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest.
Of course, “seven-day supply” doesn’t really have much of a meaning. My wife’s 30-day supply of Tramadol is 30 pills. Take a look at the instructions:
Now, if we’re talking about someone who has pain once per day during a specific four-hour time span, that is definitely a 30-day supply. But if we’re talking about someone who is dealing with chronic pain, then taking the recommended dosage makes that bottle last seven to ten days. And that, my friends, is one hell of an awesome way to beat opioid dependence. Just make them up and vanish for 20 days per month. No more worrying about willpower. No need to toughen up. It’s totally out of your hands. “You’re out already? Well that sucks. You shouldn’t have taken what we told you to take. Oh well. Come back in 20 days, and we’ll get you some more. In the meantime, here’s some aspirin. How’s your toughness?”
Don’t Worry, Self-Care Is Your Ticket To Complete Opioid Freedom
Have you ever shopped for computer chairs at an office supply store? They always have little tags with a single-digit number on them. If you never looked up what those mean, they’re “suggested hours of use.” So if the tag says “5,” they’re saying, “Don’t sit in this for more than five hours per day, you lazy, computer-using turd.” I routinely work in a computer chair for 18 hours a day. There are no computer chairs with a rating of “18”.
Office Depot“Intensive” rated doesn’t even meet half of that.
In order to prevent my vertebrae from permanently fusing together, I follow the rule of thumb to get up and walk around for five to ten minutes every hour. And that will absolutely work for all of you too, because you also work from home and have no boss who will walk over and say, “Every time I see you, you’re walking around aimlessly, doing nothing. Do you want me to fire you?”
Now, if you’re one of the rare people who does have a boss (loser), you should just explain to them that experts recommend that you stand for two to four hours during your work day, and you’ll either need two desks (one for sitting and one for standing) or a sitting-to-standing desk for your office. Those generally only cost around $400. They should be fine with that.
If you work in physical labor, you’ll need to do the opposite, taking plenty of breaks to get off your feet. The great thing about physical labor is that it’s a job known for its reasonable, empathetic supervisors and flexible project deadlines. They will have absolutely no problem with you pulling up a chair once every hour for some pain prevention. There is no way they’ll say, “I didn’t hire you to sit on your ass. Get back to work or allow me to go spend the three minutes it would take me to find a replacement.”
You Will Definitely Become Tough
Here’s the thing about chronic pain: It doesn’t just affect you or your throbbing body part. It turns you into a dick, because it’s impossible to maintain a positive, healthy state of mind when all you can concentrate on is *throb, throb, throb, throb, throb*. Unless you’re showing exaggerated physical signs or you outright tell someone about how much pain you’re in, other people have no idea why you’re being a douche. They just think, “Man, screw that dude.” People in my situation usually know what it’s like to ask for a promotion and be interrupted with, “I’d really love to give you the position, but you really are a piece of shit, Chad.”
Also, chronic pain is often linked with depression, and the two feed off of each other like the Auryn, only made out of human shit. The pain makes the depression worse, and the depression robs you of the motivation and energy to manage the pain. It’s a perpetual motion machine that often ends with goddamn suicide. “How tragic, he was always so sad for some reason.” YES, MAYBE IT WAS BECAUSE THE ENTIRE TOP HALF OF MY FUCKING BODY WAS ON FIRE.
The upside is that if you survive a few decades of this, you’ll be tough as hell. You could be catapulted anus-first into a cactus made of metal and be like, “Pfft. Just give me a couple of aspirin. I’ll be fine.” Hell, Jeff Sessions may even put you in one of his speeches.
“I knew a writer who couldn’t walk the length of one shopping mall,” he’ll say. “His pain was so severe that he only slept a few hours per night. It gave him chronic depression. He had been in the hospital multiple times for nervous breakdowns. His kids learned to not ask him to go on long trips, because he couldn’t physically handle the car ride. But by God, he didn’t take opioids, because that man, he was as tough as a leather dildo.”
After a fatal gondola clang killed two young mommies and a 9-month-old child last-place month, a photo taken at the scene of the clang is bringing peace to the families and friends of those involved.
23-year-old Hannah Simmons was driving in her hometown of Gainesville, Georgia, with her newborn daughter, Alannah, and 28 -year-old friend Lauren Buteau when “shes lost” limit of her vehicle.
The wreck generated an extensive backup on the highway, justification numerous moves to be stuck, at the compassion of emergency gangs. One operator, Anisa Gannon, was on her method to piece, and decided to snap photographs of the background as proof that congestion became her late.
Anisa afterwards pictured the photo to her aunt, Tara Noble, who instantly attended more than merely a appalling gondola accident and a mess of cleaning process crews.
Amidst the situation of rubble seemed a beam of light, glittering from the sky onto the sidewalk. Further, two small orbs can be seen within the beamalmost as if the two women were foreman home.
Oh, my gosh, Tara remembered telling to herself. Its a pathway to heaven .
She was rocked to her core after accompanying the epitome, and appeared compelled to reach out to the families of the clang preys. Taras hope was that the photo might accompanied them a sense of treaty, and help them through their grieving process.
I dont believes in co-occurrences, especially the two lights inside that bigger light-headed. It wreaked the families quietnes, whether its a light or not, Tara showed. Its indefinable, basically, and it does look like them leaving .
Hannahs mother, Judy Simmons, says that the photo has been the ultimate endowment in their duration of healing.
That picture was taken for a reasonto give me sanity, Judy supposed. Hannah was also our friend, and shes looking down from heaven now .
Laurens aunt, Jodie Carter, said that she was completely speechless. She could have never imagined potential impacts that a photograph could have on their families.
It took my breath away. Chills enveloped my figure. And then a treaty came over me, she excused. I verify God taking them up to heaven. Their feels, their orbs are up there. No other explanation .
Those who dont believe in Jesus Christ, and His peace which outstrips all understanding, may discount the portrait. But even if it is a glare, one thing is certainour God loves his beings, and He is the almighty comforter. The gigantic comfort that the womens categories have experienced amidst tragedy is a true evidence to the love of Jesus Christ.
