The allegations against the accused, some have reflected, were even more detailed and startling than the information revealed in the 2009 commission of inquiry. Mitchell from the get go said he would not even need to refer to the Robin Auld led inquiry to build his case. The two weeks did not go without a battle; the defendant in protest, former premier Michael Misick challenged the website where the opening statements by Mitchell are published; he tried to get a mistrial declared after developer and Sandals owner, Butch Stewart issued a media statement which confirmed his company’s payment to Mike Misick, as the lead defendant and there was even concern for the defendants’ safety when a civilian issued a death threat, reportedly, against Misick outside of the courthouse last week. Now that Andrew Mitchell is done with what he will aim to prove once the trial continues, there is a break. The proceedings at the Myrtle Rigby health complex resume on Monday, February 15, 2016.

Houston Leads The Way In Innovative Cancer Procedures

first_imgListen To embed this piece of audio in your site, please use this code: X – / 3Dr. Jesse Selber is a plastic surgeon who specializes in cancer reconstruction at MD Anderson Cancer Center.Just last month, he performed a procedure that was the first of it’s kind. Using the tissue from a patient’s twin sister, he, along with a team of surgeons were able to perform a multi disciplinary surgery, where they removed a rare tumor and replaced it with a large piece of tissue.“The transplant itself was a 13 hour, two room endeavor where we started on Mary Jane, the sister, carried it across the the next room to Marian, who had the big hole in her back, and we started to connect the blood vessels,” he says.Selber says family members usually offer to donate their tissue, but aren’t well-matched.In this case, the sisters were both 100 percent genetically compatible and identical. Selber says this form of reconstructive surgery was the most extensive MD Anderson had ever done and is one of the largest tissue transplantation’s on record. It’s also one of the only cases performed on identical twins.Dr. Selber is not foreign to medical innovation. About two years ago, he help reconstruct a scalp and skull, while transplanting a kidney and pancreas at the same time on a single person.Selber says it’s not so much new technology being used making this possible, but a new way of thinking. 00:00 /01:15 Sharelast_img read more

Netflix Orders Oceans Natural History Series From Blue Planet II Creator

first_img“Oceans” (working title) will range “from the tropical waters of the Indian Ocean to the raging wildness of the Atlantic, from the deceptively peaceful waters of the Pacific that are surrounded by a ring of fire to the freezing isolation of the Southern and Arctic Oceans,” Netflix said. Production is to begin later this year.Honeyborne served for years as an executive producer in the BBC’s natural history unit, where he oversaw the making of about 35 films, including “Blue Planet II” and “Africa.” He left to set up Freeborne Media with director Renee Godfrey, whose credits include “Tribe” and “Human Planet.”The company is based in Bristol, England, the center of Britain’s wildlife filmmaking community. Netflix has ordered a multi-part natural history series on the world’s oceans from Freeborne Media, the production outfit of acclaimed natural-history producer James Honeyborne, who created “Blue Planet II.”Each of the series’ episodes will focus on a different ocean, “combining the disciplines of oceanography, geography and earth sciences to experience these characteristics in new ways,” Netflix said in a statement. The series is the first project to spring from a multi-year deal signed by Freeborne with Netflix to create big-budget natural history programs.The streaming giant is delving more deeply into the natural history space. It has already released on its platform “Our Planet,” a multi-part wildlife series narrated by BBC stalwart and acclaimed naturalist David Attenborough.

The soldiers are crying and threatening to launch an agitation. They are asking the government to disclose as to when the OROP would be implemented… Modiji says I am busy doing yoga, ask me later,” he added.Earlier in May, the Congress Vice-President had said that he would ‘pressurise’ the Centre to act on the One-Rank, One-Pension issue at the earliest.

Breaks help learn new skills better

first_imgIf you are in a process of learning new skills, then taking short breaks in between may help you grasp it better, say researchers. The study, published in the journal Current Biology, suggests our brains probably take short rest periods to strengthen memories. “Everyone thinks you need to ‘practice, practice and practice’ when learning something new,” said co-author Leonardo G Cohen from the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke in the US. “We found resting, early and often, may be just as critical to learning as practice,” Cohen said. Also Read – Add new books to your shelfFor the study, researchers recorded brain waves from a group of right-handed volunteers with a highly sensitive scanning technique called magnetoencephalography or MEG. They were asked to type numbers as many times as possible with their left hands for 10 seconds, then take rest for 10 seconds and to repeat the cycle until they had typed the numbers 35 more times. The findings showed the volunteers’ speed at which they correctly typed numbers improved dramatically during the first few trials and then levelled off around the 11th cycle. This suggested volunteers’ performance improved primarily during the short rests, and not during typing, the team said. Also Read – Over 2 hours screen time daily will make your kids impulsiveBy looking at the brain waves, researchers also found activity patterns that suggested the brains of participants were consolidating, or solidifying, memories during the rest. Specifically, they found the changes in the size of brain waves, called beta rhythms, correlated with the improvements the volunteers made during rests. The team plans to explore, in detail, the role of these early resting periods in learning and memory.last_img read more
