Placentas Can Now Be Turned Into Picture Frames to Display Photos of Newborn Babies

Mums can now turn their placenta into a photo frame in which to display pictures of their newborn babies.

Graduate Amanda Cotton has devised a way of making marble-effect frames and is already receiving orders from parents.

She first boils and cooks it and then grinds it into small pieces before placing it into a mould with resin and other materials.

The University of Brighton graduate said: “I have had a lot of positive feedback from mothers and fathers to be – and I already have clients.”

One order has come from Ulrika Jarl, who is expecting her second daughter at Christmas, a uni spokesman said.

After the birth, Miss Jarl will be keeping the placenta in a cool box for Miss Cotton to collect and turn into a frame.

Miss Jarl said: “I can understand why some people might find this a bit yucky but what attracted me was the use of materials that we think of as waste.

“I finished an MA in sustainable design at the University of Brighton a couple of years ago and these issues are close to my heart.

“We need to think of all waste in a completely new way, as raw materials which hold huge potential. Why not use human waste where possible?

“I have friends who swear by placenta capsules and say they give them much more energy, more milk and even combat the postpartum blues.

“You can donate placentas for training dogs to look for human remains.

“There are so many uses for these useful bits of tissue that kept your baby alive for nine months, yet the majority of placentas are just thrown away.

“That really is a waste.”

 

Miss Cotton developed her picture frame technique before graduating this year in 3D materials practice (now design and craft) at the Faculty of Arts.

She said: “It is my belief that human by-products have just as valid an aesthetic value as their virginal material resource.

“From this starting point, I chose to create souvenirs which pin-point key times in one’s life, using materials of personal significance.

“I chose the placenta because during my time at Brighton I lived with a midwife and it became apparent through her studies that there was little importance placed on the placenta, even though it is the link between the mother and baby throughout the entire pregnancy.

“My work is all about our incredible bodies creating materials which we love and care for yet, once separated from us, we are repulsed by and we feel the need to discard then. My work is about expressing the amazing and intricate materials our bodies provide.”

The 25-year-old, who works for a London design company, has said she is expanding the range after receiving positive feedback from parents.

She said: “It is quite common for people to keep their baby’s by-products such as the umbilical cord, first tooth or hair clippings to document their progress, along with photos and notes.

“The placenta is one of the first creations the mother and baby make together – why not celebrate that with a keepsake?”

Nigerian Parents Arrested After Teen Son Dies During Religious Fast

Published

on

A Nigerian couple have been arrested in the US after their 15-year-old son reportedly died during a 40-day religious fast.

Kehinde Omosebi, 49, and Titilayo Omosebi, 48, of Reedsburg, were on Tuesday charged with child neglect causing death and child neglect causing great bodily harm.

The father was said to have walked to the Reedburg police station on Sunday, to report his son had died on Friday, Chief Timothy Becker said.

Investigators who went to the Omosebi home reportedly had to force their way in, as the doors was padlocked on the inside. No food was discovered in the home. They found the “extremely emaciated and deceased” teenager, and also found a gaunt 11-year-old child, along with his mother, Titilayo, who was also undernourished, according to the report.

The father, Kehinde, told authorities that the family began fasting on July 19, and that he was a “religious minister affiliated with Cornerstone Reformation Ministries,” which is believed by police to have been made up.

The mother and 11-year-old were transported to a hospital. The mother reportedly refused medical treatment due to religious reasons, and was taken to the Sauk County Jail.

The child remains in protective custody at Children’s Hospital in Madison, while, according to Becker, the parents are eating while in jail.

This Illuminati Conspiracy Theory Of Celebrities With Black Eyes Will Shock You..

Published

on

A bizarre conspiracy theory has emerged suggesting that celebrities seen sporting a black left eye are part of the Illuminati. Former US President George W. Bush, along with the Pope, Prince Philip and Prince Andrew, have all also been photographed with black eyes.

According to some conspiracy theorists, the black left eye is part of a cult or ‘Illuminati’ high-level initiation ritual during which the pledger is said to be forced to ‘eat pain’ in a quest to become more powerful.

Author and internet radio show host Sherry Shriner –  who wrote the book Interview With The Devil, in which she claimed to converse with Lucifer – has spoken of the link between these black eyes and ‘soul scalping’.

According to Shriner, government leaders, people on TV with their own shows and hundreds of popular entertainers have sold their souls to Satan.

‘You cannot be on TV now, without signing on the dotted line. The bizarre recurrence of facial bruises on Illuminati politicians and entertainers has resulted in speculation that their souls have been replaced in a satanic ritual called “soul scalping”,’ she said.

Shriner, who died earlier this year, believed all the powerful people in the world have been soul scalped.

She said that this can one done in a number of ritualistic ways, all of which result in a ‘possession’, whereby the human soul is removed and the body taken over by the demonic entity.

In conspiracy circles, this process is also known as a ‘walk-in’. Some people believe the blackened eye is a result of soul scalping.

Meanwhile, celebrities have come up with various explanations for how they got their black eyes over the years.

The Pope was said to have hit his eye when riding through the streets of Cartagena, Columbia in the ‘Pope-mobile’ last year.

Several news reports stated that he had made a joke about the injury, saying that he’d been punched.

Conspiracy theorists have pointed out that even members of the royal family have been spotted with black eyes over the years.

Some researchers suggest a link between the bearers of black eyes to the worship of the Egyptian sun god Horus, whose left eye was black and represented the moon and whose right eye was white and represented the sun.
