A mother just wanted to have "a little fun with death" as she decorated her deceased son's grave with a lifesize skeleton wearing a cowboy hat for Halloween.

"I['m] getting tired of Cole's Halloween decorations being removed!" Wohle said on her Facebook post last Oct. 22.

Jimmy Butler’s week: A baby, a Heat debut and a first win

Inquirer Breaking News - Wed, 10/30/2019 - 18:22
MIAMI--- A late-arriving baby. A delayed Miami debut. A lot of lost sleep. Jimmy Butler's first official week with the Heat was certainly one he won't forget. Getting the distinction of being the last Miami starter to be introduced --- a role that Dwyane Wade held for the majority of his Heat tenure, the honor that typically goes to the player deemed to be the face of the franchise --- Butler has finally gotten onto the court with his new team. The debut went well: He scored 21 points, made his first four shots and the Heat defeated the Atlanta Hawks 112-97. And afterward, he was going home to his newborn daughter.

Top writer sinks TV doctors myth: ‘They’re too busy to care’

Inquirer Breaking News - Wed, 10/30/2019 - 18:22

"A lot of medical dramas still work on the idea that someone comes into a very busy hospital, and alongside their medical problem, they receive a talking cure about their family and emotional problems from the doctors," Mercurio said. But as "anyone who has ever been in hospital knows, they don't care and they don't have the time," he insisted as he received an award a...

Climate activist Greta Thunberg declines environmental award

Inquirer Breaking News - Wed, 10/30/2019 - 18:12
Swedish climate activist Greta Thunberg on Tuesday refused to accept an environmental award, saying the climate movement needed people in power to start to "listen" to "science" and not awards. The young climate activist, who has rallied millions to her "Fridays for Future" movement, was honored at a Stockholm ceremony held by the Nordic Council, a regional body for inter-parliamentary cooperation.
