THE WEEK

1. Terror attack kills three in London
A man killed at least three people and injured 40 more in an attack with a vehicle and a knife at Britain’s Parliament on Wednesday, sending lawmakers and tourists dashing for safety. Two of the people killed were among pedestrians the attacker plowed through on Westminster Bridge near the Parliament building. The other was a police officer stabbed at the House of Commons. Police then fatally shot the alleged assailant. Investigators are treating the attack as terrorism, and believe the assailant acted alone but was inspired by international terrorists. The alleged attacker was British-born and had been investigated by British spies, but was not “part of the current intelligence picture,” according to Prime Minister Theresa May. Some of the wounded pedestrians had what were described as “catastrophic” injuries, and one woman was pulled, alive but badly hurt…

About Dr. Rex

I'm originally from Puerto Rico. I was born in Santurce and raised in Rio Piedras. Have lived in Florida since 1999. I have a doctorate degree in Medicine; completed in 1976. My Internal Medicine specialty was completed in 1979. Worked for Puerto Rico's health system until 1985. At this time, I'm happily retired after working for the federal government for almost 28yrs. I want to offer any knowledge that I have to anyone "out there" who is interested. My views are liberal in almost every sense. My knowledge is "eclectic" - a bit of everything. Music and reading are my passion. Blogging has also become a very interesting endeavor. Metaphysical topics attract me. I'm interested in news reporting human issues like injustice, discrimination and abuse - the "wrongly" affected. My intention is to bring this knowledge to an understandable level and to help anyone in need. I'm open to questions and will answer them to the best of my ability. Currently working on an enterprise whose main mission will be to bring peoples of all walks of life together. To be one .... since we ALL are ONE!! The future looks bright and promising!!!

  1. we have more Asian immigrants in London than we can absorb, where burkas are the most common mode of dress, so I am told. We have lost our rights to even state how frightening life is for those working in capital cities. We need to rethink what the hell we are all doing to make such a cricis to both people and the planet.. Eve

    • So you are told … you don’t know youself? Sometimes I wonder why all nations get so many immigrants … the ‘big world powers’ drive them away from their lands … for greedy reasons, mostly. It’s a displacement created by the big world powers …

      • I totally agree with you. I don’t see a way out. Humanity has lost its way … or maybe it was like this all the time. It’s our time now and we are aware. Sometimes, I have a hard time writing … or looking for inspiring stories. My mood has changed since Nov. 8, 2016 … I literally have to make myself blog, kinda. The enthusiasm has decreased .. and, in my case, HE’S always there. I don’t go looking … he’s always there: on the news, on TV. on the blogs … I want this to be over!!

      • I’m getting to know the ‘others’ on other countries. I guess I need a lot of education in that sense. I confess … this is a new process for me.
        I know about Puerto Rico, my country, and the USA now. The world is smaller bc of technology … and that’s when I hear about other politicians. Bottom line … the majority, if not all, are corrupt and liars!!

      • to change the subject. I don’t use word press often due to the techno. changes and being hard to use. Where have all the people gone. It is hard to be seen now, and hard to get anyone to read blogs. eh? – Why are so many little posts, i mean one liners, end up with so many likes and comments. I am dead lost on the present style..

      • Yes indeed. We now have a new kind of Face Book, Word Press Style. Less writing, certainly not blog style, while people are liking! But I do not know what exactly they are liking. I guess not having to read. Well, i carry on if only to keep my brain active. How sad they do not want to read, at least, a paragraph or two. The damage done by social media to our concentration is enormous. Sadly Word Press is just a copy of F.B. without the deep pockets.. So less easy to use.. oh well.

      • I’ve been blogging for 4 years now, since I retired. I was really into it at the beginning. Now it feels sometimes like a chore.
        And, yes, there are so many idiots!!

      • Due to Word Press creating too hard technology for real boggers. They are beset by having to be technicians. They come to blog not to learn code. People can only read so many blogs anyway. People who were first blogging have gone. Now you have face bookers with a sentence of two – hoping for a like. It is all so sad. I guess most must stay all day to like others to get a few likes back. This is the same sort of thing that happens on Face Book. Everyone is posting but no one much is writing or taking real interest. It is so dangerous for our minds. The best way to get read is having post in google. However a para. will not make google. methinks.
