Pregnant mom worries previous botched tummy tuck may harm unborn baby: ‘What have I done?’

An expectant mother in Scotland fears a botched tummy tuck two years ago has put her unborn baby at risk after learning that the complications have left her prone to infection. Kerrie Wilkes, 27, told SWNS she wanted to be “Insta perfect” when she elected to have the procedure done in Poland and knew right away it was the wrong move.

“The surgery was horrible,” Wilkes, who is expecting her first child in April, told SWNS. “The building I was getting my surgery in was in a business park. I didn’t think about it because I wanted it done so badly. I woke up and thought, ‘What have I done?’”

WOMAN CLAIMS CHEAP LIP FILLERS LEFT HER WITH INFECTED ‘ROCK-SOLID SAUSAGES’

Wilkes claims she was immediately sick and in immense pain but was given no medicine or intravenous fluid. She claims when she got back to Scotland she went straight to the hospital, where she was diagnosed with sepsis and told her belly button would have to be reconstructed due to the infection.

“I didn’t even think I could have children after the infection because it was so bad,” she told SWNS. “Because the infection began in my stomach through my belly button, my belly button opened up and I had to have a new one constructed.”

Wilkes claims her doctors have warned that it could re-open again before she gives birth, adding that the surgery she thought would “be the best thing ever,” has “ruined my life.”

“People have to stop going abroad for plastic surgery, and it would mean the world to me if it was out more,” she told SWNS. “I hate the thought of someone getting surgery.”

She said that her ordeal has taught her to appreciate herself more than ever.

“I just want to have a healthy birth, and if my baby survives this I’ll be so happy again,” she told the news outlet.

The NHS has warned against seeking plastic surgery procedures abroad following the deaths of many patients. While the cost may be less than what is found in the U.K., the risks may outweigh the benefits.

“If you have complications after an operation in the U.K., it’s the surgeon’s responsibility to provide follow-up treatment,” the NHS said on its website. “Overseas clinics may not provide follow-up treatment, or they may not provide it to the same standard as in the U.K. Also they may not have a health care professional in the U.K. you can go to if you have any problems.”

Such was the case with Wilkes, who said she has had to rely on her local doctors to try to fix her complications, including a recent infection she contracted while pregnant.

“If you do want surgery I recommend only Ross Hall, the Nuffield, or an NHS doctor,” Wilkes told SWNS. “You need to go to someone that you trust.”

Bill Cosby shows no remorse in first interview from prison: ‘It’s all a setup’

Bill Cosby maintained his innocence while speaking out from behind bars for the first time since his conviction on three counts of felony aggravated indecent assault in April 2018.

The disgraced comedian spoke with BlackPressUSA.com for a candid interview about his life behind bars. Cosby, 82, was unremorseful in his comments, maintaining his innocence and calling his entire trial and sentencing of three to 10 years in prison into question.

“I have eight years and nine months left,” Cosby stated. “When I come up for parole, they’re not going to hear me say that I have remorse. I was there. I don’t care what group of people come along and talk about this when they weren’t there. They don’t know.”

BILL COSBY SLAPPED WITH $2.75M LEGAL BILL

“It’s all a setup. That whole jury thing. They were imposters,” Cosby stated.

He went on to recall that one juror was overheard saying before the trial, “He’s guilty, we can all go home now.”

Cosby’s sentence came after a lengthy trial that resulted in one mistrial and an eventual guilty verdict, over accusations from former Temple University employee, Andrea Constand. He was found to have drugged and sexually assaulted Constand at his suburban Philadelphia home in 2004. Multiple women have come forward against the famed comedian with similar allegations of assault.

Cosby’s trial was heralded as the first major celebrity trial of the #MeToo movement and the first to result in a conviction. Cosby’s reputation sank after comedian Hannibal Buress brought up the numerous sexual assault allegations against the comic in 2014. Since then, more than 60 women have come forward with allegations against him.

Cosby also spoke about his 1984 -1992 sitcom “The Cosby Show,” which many broadcasters pulled from the air and streaming services after women came forward against him. However, Cosby claims it’s an example of those in power suppressing anything positive coming from the black community.

BILL COSBY’S LAWYERS ATTEMPTING TO GET HIS SEXUAL ASSAULT CONVICTION THROWN OUT

“When ‘The Cosby Show’ came on with the Huxtables, just think about it. While it was running, other networks and even the media were doing jobs on trying to belittle whatever it represented,” he explained.

“While new shows were coming and we had gone off the air – this is the worst time in the history of television – I remember hearing shows coming on advertising saying this is not ‘The Cosby Show,’ which is an indictment in itself,” Cosby continued.

Hoda Kotb Shocks ‘Today’ Colleagues By Announcing She’s Engaged On Air

Westlake Legal Group 5ddc0484210000ab9834dfc4 Hoda Kotb Shocks ‘Today’ Colleagues By Announcing She’s Engaged On Air

Today” co-anchor Hoda Kotb became the news on Monday, announcing that she got engaged to longtime boyfriend Joel Schiffman over the weekend. Kotb slyly segued into the moment, then dropped the bombshell that shocked her colleagues.

“I have to tell you something that a friend of mine, a friend of ours, asked me to let you guys in on a secret,” Kotb said, as seen in the clip above. “I’ll give you her initials. Her initials are Hoda Kotb, and she’s engaged.”

Schiffman, 61, proposed to Kotb, 55, on one knee during a tropical vacation. Kotb said she thought dinner was wrapping up as she licked the churros from her fingers. Then Schiffman popped the question.

“I was totally shocked,” she said. “He had a good poker face.”

Kotb was previously married to former tennis coach Burzis Kanga. She filed for divorce in 2007.

Chasing Amazon, Retailers Are in a Never-Ending Arms Race

Westlake Legal Group 00retail1-facebookJumbo Chasing Amazon, Retailers Are in a Never-Ending Arms Race Shopping and Retail Nordstrom Inc Macy's Inc Kohl's Corporation E-Commerce Black Friday and Cyber Monday (Shopping)

Retailers are trying everything they can to keep up with Amazon. Macy’s offers same-day delivery and in-store returns for online purchases. Black Friday deals are already starting at Kohl’s. And craft cocktails are served in the women’s shoe department at Nordstrom.

By one measure, these strategies are working. After years when it seemed as if Amazon was swallowing the industry, many large old-school chains like Kohl’s and Macy’s have largely stabilized their lagging sales.

But those victories may be short-lived because retailers are caught up in a seemingly never-ending race against Amazon. The more they spend to compete, the more their profits are sapped. And even when they succeed in attracting customers, Amazon responds with new ways of delivering inexpensive items as quickly and conveniently as possible.

“Is this an arms race that never stops?’’ asked Christina Boni, a senior credit officer at Moody’s focused on retailers. “That has still to be determined.”

And it’s not just Amazon that’s been shaking up the roughly $3.6 trillion retail industry. Dozens of start-ups, backed by private investors not concerned with immediate profits, have been chipping away at department store offerings, section by section.

The costs are weighing on many retailers, even in a relatively strong economy when consumers are expected to spend heartily during the holiday shopping season that begins in earnest this week. Just last week, Kohl’s said that its quarterly profit had dropped 24 percent and that profits for the year would be less than previously thought.

These same online forces have led in recent years to record store closings and prominent bankruptcies like Sears, Toys ‘R’ Us and Barneys New York, and they are pressuring a wider circle of retailers that have seemingly adapted well to the era of online shopping. The result may be that Americans find themselves with fewer places to shop.

“Some retailers are in a tough spot,” said Jay Sole, a retail analyst at UBS. “Sales have gone up but profit margins have gone down.”

Especially hard hit are the big sellers of apparel and accessories like Nordstrom, which are grappling with the dual costs of running fast and efficient e-commerce operations, while also keeping their stores inviting and relevant.

Last month, Nordstrom opened a giant new store just south of Central Park, the single largest project investment in the company’s 118-year history, featuring 19-foot ceilings and specially commissioned artwork. On opening weekend, the crowds were so thick that shoppers trying on shoes had to take numbers as if they were at a deli counter.

The seven-floor colossus — bigger than a Walmart Supercenter — adds to the retailer’s range of efforts in Manhattan like Nordstrom Rack outlets, new hubs for online returns and a men’s store. Still, as it tries to be all things to all shoppers, Nordstrom’s operating profit margin is nearly half what it was eight years ago. Last week, Nordstrom said its margins improved slightly in the third quarter as it cut expenses, although sales fell.

At Kohl’s, the strategy to win over customers is less flashy, but no less costly. The department store chain is ramping up discounts to drum up sales ahead of the holidays.

And unable to beat Amazon, Kohl’s is trying to join it. Kohl’s now accepts Amazon returns at many of its 1,100 stores — packing, labeling and shipping the items free — in an attempt to get more people to walk through its doors. The retailer’s chief executive has called the partnership its “single biggest initiative” of the year.

Competing with Amazon has never been a fair fight. For decades, the online giant has appealed to investors by growing quickly, even as it lost money on shipping, building out its warehouses and developing gadgets like the voice-activated Echo with Alexa. Amazon also runs a cloud computing business, Amazon Web Services, that can boost the company’s overall profits. In its most recent quarter, Amazon said profit fell 28 percent as it invested in one-day shipping initiatives.

Leading up to the holidays, Amazon is only getting more aggressive. It is expanding the items that it will ship free in a single day to Prime customers. According to a Morgan Stanley analysis, the typical order for one-day shipping is $8.32, and Amazon spends $10.59 to fulfill and ship it, meaning the company loses money on many sales. But Amazon may satisfy a more valuable goal: pressuring other retailers to deliver the same level of convenience to keep their customers.

Retail is a huge industry and not every chain is being squeezed. Walmart and Target have evolved from big box stores into retailers that have succeeded at offering the same conveniences as Amazon like one-day delivery.

They have managed to thrive because they are helped by a wide range of products like food and household staples that customers have to buy on a regular basis. Their sheer size also allows them to pressure their suppliers to lower the cost of their goods, which frees up money to invest in e-commerce.

Still, Amazon seems to have most of the advantages. The company is building out its own fleet of airplanes, delivery trucks and couriers, while other retailers must contend with rising rates to ship through FedEx and UPS.

While retailers are coming through with a “very, very competitive digital shopping experience,” said Kimberly Greenberger, a retail analyst at Morgan Stanley, they are pouring money into their e-commerce operations at the same time their stores are bringing in fewer sales. Just when they seem caught up, Amazon raises the bar again.

“It just continues this vicious cycle that retailers find themselves in,” Ms. Greenberger said.

Macy’s is one retailer caught in this cycle for years. Founded in the 1850s, Macy’s spent generations expanding its reach, acquiring regional department store chains and building new stores in shopping malls.

Facing pressure from e-commerce and seeing less traffic in malls, Macy’s has spent the past few years dismantling that brick-and-mortar empire. It has sold off some of its most iconic stores to raise money to reinvest in its online business and modernize its remaining stores.

After three consecutive years of losses, Macy’s sales rebounded last year. But its operating margin is projected to fall to 5 percent this year from a recent high of 10.2 percent in 2014, according to Capital IQ. On Thursday, Macy’s said that sales sunk more than expected in its most recent quarter, driving down the company’s shares to their lowest price in a decade.

“It’s a different model you’re competing with today,” Terry Lundgren, Macy’s former chief executive, said in an interview, pointing to Amazon’s businesses outside of selling items like shoes and blouses. “It’s the reality of competing against a retailer who is purposefully reducing the price and not as concerned about making money on each item.”

Mr. Lundgren said that the ideal transaction for major retail chains today is a consumer who browses online and then visits stores to buy or pick up the actual merchandise. That eliminates shipping costs and reduces the chance of a return because the customer has touched or tried on the item.

In addition, customers end up spending more on store visits, he said, noting that when he was leading Macy’s, people who picked up online orders ended up spending an additional 25 percent. “I really wanted to keep encouraging that type of transaction,” Mr. Lundgren said.

And then, there are the dozens of buzzy e-commerce start-ups, built through savvy marketing on Instagram and Facebook, that have also been putting pressure on department stores. Often, these companies are built around one product, ship directly to consumers and have only a few stores, if any. They include Away for suitcases, Allbirds for shoes, Lively for bras, Everlane for clothing and Brooklinen for bedsheets.

Many of these companies, backed by venture capital, are focused on growth and not concerned with making money in the short-term.

“Traditional companies held to traditional profit and loss metrics, particularly public companies, are being battered by a lot of venture-backed direct-to-consumer companies that aren’t really built around a profitability model right now,” said Joel Bines, global co-head of retail at consulting firm AlixPartners.

“There’s no telling how long it’ll take for the capital inflows to dry up for these competitors that every day are picking off the best customers of the department stores,” Mr. Bines added.

In the meantime, retailers like Kohl’s hope their investments will win back sales and save them money down the road by gaining customer loyalty.

“We believe that investing in the short-term will support our strategies to drive profitable growth over the long term,’’ Michelle Gass, chief executive of Kohl’s said in a statement last week.

But investor patience may be wearing thin. The company’s shares dropped about 19 percent last week.

Brooklyn Nets’ Kyrie Irving ‘planned’ shoulder injury to skip Boston Celtics game, ex-NBA player says

Westlake Legal Group NBA-Kyrie-Irving6 Brooklyn Nets' Kyrie Irving 'planned' shoulder injury to skip Boston Celtics game, ex-NBA player says Ryan Gaydos fox-news/sports/nba/brooklyn-nets fox-news/sports/nba fox-news/person/kyrie-irving fox news fnc/sports fnc b438619f-e453-56bf-a94b-ad79f4cd7b02 article

Brooklyn Nets star Kyrie Irving is set to miss his first game against the Celtics due to a shoulder injury in what would have been his first appearance in Boston since leaving the team in the offseason.

Former NBA center Kendrick Perkins suggested that Irving may have concocted the injury in order to purposely skip the game. Irving has not played since Nov. 14 against the Denver Nuggets and the Nets and Celtics meet Wednesday.

BOSTON CELTICS KEMBA WALKER CARRIED OFF COURT ON STRETCHER AFTER SCARY HEAD-ON COLLISION WITH TEAMMATE

“Kyrie looked at the schedule before the season started and planned this whole injury thing because he didn’t want to go back to Boston this upcoming week!!! He didn’t want that smoke in the Bean Town. Smh,” Perkins, who is now an ESPN analyst, tweeted Friday.

Irving bolted Boston for the Nets in the offseason after having vowed to Celtics fans he would be coming back. The point guard said in the offseason that part of the reason was he was dealing with issues off the court that made him want to move back near his family.

KYRIE IRVING IS ‘A NORMAL TEAMMATE,’ BROOKLYN NETS’ CENTER JARRETT ALLEN SAYS

He said in September he wanted to re-sign with the Celtics, but his home life “has way higher precedence than the organization or anyone and I barely got a chance to talk to my grandfather before he passed, from playing basketball.” He said he thought he could “battle through” his struggles through the team.

Irving played 67 games for the Celtics during the 2018-19 season. He averaged 23.8 points and 6.9 assists during the year and made his third consecutive All-Star appearance. But Boston was eliminated from the playoffs in the second round.

This season with the Nets, Irving is averaging 28.2 points and 7.2 assists per game. It’s unclear when he will be ready to return to the court.

John Cusack says boycott MSNBC over network’s Bernie Sanders coverage: ‘Can u be intellectually honest?’

Far-left actor John Cusack called for his fans to boycott MSNBC over the liberal network’s coverage of 2020 Democratic presidential hopeful Bernie Sanders.

“Be clear MSNBC You did this to yourself no one made you parade neocons & neoliberal pundits to slander & smear a people’s movement that you KNOW is not radical but a return to FDR politics,” Cusack tweeted on Saturday along with a video detailing MSNBC’s “problem with Bernie Sanders.”

ANDREW YANG WON’T RETURN TO MSNBC UNTIL THEY APOLOGIZE ‘ON-AIR’ TO HIS CAMPAIGN

Cusack added the hashtag #BoycottMSNBC, which trended earlier in the week, when fellow 2020 Democratic candidate Andrew Yang slammed the network, too.

The two-plus minute video tweet by Cusack was a compilation of various MSNBC personalities and guests dismissing Sanders. Some of the network’s biggest stars are included, such as Chris Matthews, Stephanie Ruhle and “Morning Joe” mainstay Donny Deutsch.

The montage featured Ruhle comparing Sanders supporters to Trump voters and Deutsch even declaring he’d vote for Trump over Sanders.

MSNBC did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Cusack sent follow-up tweets, mocking MSNBC being for being  “intellectually honest” when it comes to Sanders.

Cusack also retweeted a video of an MSNBC interview with now-disgraced Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein, who was critical of Sanders during the 2016 campaign.

ANDREW YANG ACCUSES MSNBC OF ‘HYPOCRISY’ AFTER LATEST DEMOCRATIC DEBATE

Cusack is an outspoken Sanders supporter who has gotten himself in hot water with political tweets in the past. He was blasted on social media in June for a tweet that critics called anti-Semitic, which he later blamed on a “bot.” In a screenshot shared by journalist Yashar Ali, Cusack shared a cartoon, writing, “Follow the money.” The cartoon shows a hand with a Star of David pushing down a group of people along with a Voltaire quote saying, “To learn who rules over you, simply find out who you are not allowed to criticize.” The tweet has since been deleted.

Shortly after the tweet was deleted, the “Say Anything” star explained to his followers that he was reacting to “pro Palestinian justice” and that a “bot” was to blame for the post.

Meanwhile, Yang had a harsh response to MSNBC after the network asked him to appear on-air amid his campaign’s complaints that the network treated him unfairly in its coverage of the Democratic field.

“Was asked to appear on @msnbc this weekend– and told them that I’d be happy to after they apologize on-air, discuss and include our campaign consistent with our polling, and allow surrogates from our campaign as they do other candidates,” Yang tweeted. “They think we need them. We don’t.”

Yang and his followers previously attacked MSNBC, noting the relatively little amount of speaking time he had in comparison to other candidates at Wednesday’s Democratic debate. Prior to that debate, the network excluded Yang from a graphic on polling and one previewing the debate.

Tennessee quarterback Jarrett Guarantano revealed Saturday, after the Volunteers’ victory over Missouri, that he and his family received death threats earlier in the season.

Guarantano told reporters that he and his sister, who also attends the University of Tennessee, were the subject of nasty messages after the team started the season 1-4, according to the Knoxville News Sentinel.

He gave high praise to his teammates for helping him through the difficult times.

“There were so many guys that were there for me throughout the death threats, the mean messages to the sister,” he said. “They were all there for me and it really meant a lot. There were some hectic times for me and they were there for me every step on the way.”

Guarantano was benched earlier in the season after a slow start to the season, but bounced back in a start against the Tigers. He was 23-for-40 with 415 passing yards and two touchdowns. He didn’t throw an interception in the win and has only thrown one pick in the last six games.

Defense Secretary Mark Esper told reporters Monday that President Donald Trump gave him direct orders to stop disciplinary proceedings against a Navy SEAL convicted of a war crime.

Chief Petty Officer Eddie Gallagher was demoted following his conviction in 2017, but Trump reinstated his rank earlier this month. Top Navy officials are reportedly worried the president’s intervention threatens the integrity of the military justice system.

Despite Trump’s decision to reverse Gallagher’s demotion, the Navy said it would continue its disciplinary hearings against Gallagher and would not allow him to wear his Trident pin, a symbol of his membership in the elite SEAL team.

But Trump tweeted Thursday that the Navy would not be taking away Gallagher’s pin, saying the SEAL’s case was “handled very badly from the beginning.”

Navy Secretary Richard Spencer said he did not view Trump’s tweet as an order and would continue with the disciplinary process unless he received official instructions from the president. Behind the scenes, he reportedly threatened to resign over Trump’s interference.

On Sunday, Esper fired Spencer over his handling of Gallagher’s case, saying he no longer trusted the Navy’s top civilian official. The Defense Department and White House said Spencer, unbeknownst to Esper, tried to broker a deal with the White House in which he would make sure Gallagher kept his Trident pin if Trump would allow the disciplinary process to play out.
