14-Year-Old Who Underwent Surgery to Remove 10-Lb. Tumor from His Face Dies

A 14-year-old Cuban boy died late last week, just days after surviving a complicated surgery to remove a 10-lb. tumor from his face, the family says.

Emanuel Zayas’ condition went downhill in the week after he underwent the 12-hour surgery at the Holtz Children’s Hospital at Jackson Memorial Hospital in Miami, according to the Miami Herald. Emanuel died Friday from lung and kidney complications.

“The surgery successfully removed the tumor but he had other complications that could not be overcome,” his parents wrote in a statement on Facebook.

“We truly believe and know without a doubt that Emanuel did indeed receive complete healing and that now he has a perfect, sweet face and two legs that work, and that he is running and jumping and having a great time in heaven right now.”

About three years ago, Emanuel developed what his family believed to be a pimple on the side of his nose. However, the blemish kept growing — obstructing Emanuel’s vision, blocking his nose and making it difficult for him to eat, Today reports.

“I was very surprised and alarmed to see how quickly the tumor was growing,” Melvis Vizaino told the site, with the help of a translator. “I desperately began to seek medical help because I knew this was not normal.”

Vizaino and the boy’s father, Noel Zayas, took him to Miami after learning that he had a rare bone disorder called polyostotic fibrous dysplasia. Doctors feared that, if not removed, the tumor would break his neck.

Dr. Robert Marx, chief of oral and maxillofacial surgery for the University of Miami Health System, performed the surgery and said in a statement that he recently visited Emanuel and saw a “glimmer of hope” in the boy.

“I am saddened by the fact that we are losing him and that apparently the physiologic stress of the surgery was too much for his compromised anatomy to overcome,” he said in a statement. “Our hopes of saving his life and in doing so would allow him a better quality of life have not been realized.”

“Another angel has arrived in heaven,” Marx said.

He continued, “Please know that the family finds comfort in donating Emanuel’s body to medical research in hopes of learning more about this rare disease and helping the people all over the world who suffer from it.”

Minnesota Museum To Remove Gallows Exhibit After Native American Protest

The Walker Art Center in Minneapolis has agreed to remove a controversial outdoor “gallows” sculpture following protests by local Native Americans. The large work includes design elements of seven different historical U.S. gallows, including one used to hang 38 Dakota Indians in the state in 1862.

“I regret the pain that this artwork has brought to the Dakota community and others,” museum executive director Olga Viso said in a statement announcing the decision that was posted on Facebook Saturday. “This is the first step in a long process of healing.”

The two-story structure entitled “Scaffold,” created in 2012 by Los Angeles artist Sam Durant and inspired by a dark history of American hangings, was intended as a criticism of capital punishment. But many in the local community considered it insensitive. The hanging of the “Dakota 38” after the U.S.-Dakota War in Minnesota was the largest state-sanctioned mass execution in U.S. history.

The artist now supports dismantling his exhibit, Viso’s statement said, and has told the museum’s executive director: “It’s just wood and metal ― nothing compared to the lives and histories of the Dakota people.”

“I am in agreement with the artist that the best way to move forward is to have Scaffold dismantled in some manner and to listen and learn from the elders,” she added.

Viso said she had hoped the choice of the work would trigger a valuable dialogue and increased awareness about capital punishment and violence. “I regret that I did not better anticipate how the work would be received in Minnesota, especially by Native audiences. I should have engaged leaders in the Dakota and broader Native communities in advance of the work’s siting,” she wrote in an open letter last week.

The details of how the work will be dismantled will be determined in meetings this week with tribal elders.

The large work ― with steps for visitors to climb to the gallows ― was to be one of 18 new works in a renovated Minneapolis Sculpture Garden at the Walker Art Center to be unveiled June 3.

Protesters on the scene applauded the decision when it was announced, but many plan to camp out at the space until the exhibit is removed. And anger has still been running high, with some on the scene brandishing signs reading: “This isn’t art; this is murder.”

James Cross, who identifies as Anishinaabe and Dakota, told the Pioneer Press that the decision to erect the scaffold without any input from the Native American community was a “slap in the face.” 

“Scaffold” was praised by critics when it was shown in 2012 in Germany and in Scotland.

Cambodia’s Bomb Divers Overcome Dangers To Remove Remains Of War

A small group of Cambodians — some of whom only recently learned to swim — is doing zero-visibility dives to rid the country’s waters of bombs. Photographer Charles Fox has documented their journey in an incredible new photo series that beautifully captures these unexploded ordnance divers trying to make their nation a safer place.

Decades of conflict in Cambodia have made it one of the most densely mined countries in the world. The country has worked hard to eliminate these threats, with numerous groups clearing Cambodia of mines and significantly reducing the death rate from these weapons in recent decades.

It’s not just the land that is filled with unexploded bombs, but the waters as well. To combat that problem, the Cambodian Mine Action Center and Golden West Humanitarian Foundation formed the nation’s first elite salvage dive team tasked with clearing rivers of unexploded ordnance, or UXO.

Fox started photographing the unit after seeing a small item in the local news. He got to know the nine members as he documented their progress.

“Most of them couldn’t swim at the beginning, and none of them had ever dived before,” he told The WorldPost.

The divers face dark, difficult conditions and the hazards that come with handling unexploded ordnance. “If that UXO goes off in the water there’s very little chance they’ll survive,” Fox said. But despite the risks, the divers approach the job with a humble dedication.

“They haven’t changed, they’re just still these really down to earth guys who do an incredibly dangerous job,” he said. “This group of guys who couldn’t even swim volunteered to do this work and two years down the line, they’re pulling stuff out of the river.”

The team this week led a search that uncovered a 500-pound bomb left over from the Vietnam war.

Fox was awarded a space at the Brunei Gallery in London to exhibit his work in July. He’s currently raising money on Kickstarter to pay for making the prints for that show and for an exhibit that will take place in Phnom Penh, where the divers will get a first proper look at the images of their success.

Read more about the project here and see Fox’s website for more of his work.

Remove Child Before Folding

Remove Child Before Folding


REMOVE CHILD BEFORE FOLDING – A warning label put on an actual baby stroller, ostensibly because without such caution parents might crush their children and sue the stroller company for making a defective product. For years, the Michigan anti-lawsuit watch group M-LAW has held their yearly ‘Wacky Warning Label’ contest (this year’s winner: A toilet brush whose maker warned, ‘Do Not Use For Personal Hygiene’), in order to highlight the silliest labels ever pasted on actual appliances. REMOVE CHILD BEFORE FOLDING offers the 101 most ludicrous, silly, and just plain stupid warning labels ever slapped onto perfectly good products, as well as some of the dunderheaded lawsuits that resulted from them. So before you drop that hairdryer in the bathtub, read these warnings: ‘This Product Moves when Used’ (from a popular child’s scooter) ‘Once used rectally, this thermometer should not be used orally’ (Nuff said) ‘Harmful if swallowed’ (from a brass fishing lure with a three-pronged hook) ‘May Irritate Eyes’ (from a can of self-defense pepper spray)
