CONRAD MURRAY- I' M BACK IN MEDICAL BIZ

Image
Conrad Murray now has a chance to improve his success record in treating patients ... because he's back in business. TMZ has learned the patients this time around will be children with heart problems.  Murray has taken a gig with the Trinidad Ministry of Health, where he'll be consulting with local heart surgeons. Murray won't get rich off the new job -- he's volunteering his services, but it's definitely a foot in the door.  His medical license has been revoked in Texas and suspended in California and Nevada. The government wants Murray to use his U.S. contacts to help hook up the sick kids.   Truth be told ... Murray was a successful cardiologist in the U.S. ... beloved by many of his patients.  Only one blemish on his record.

3D Printing Technology Helps Doctors Rebuild Man's Face After Horrible Motorcycle Accident

Image
Two years after a horrific motorcycle accident left Stephen Power’s face mangled, pioneering 3D printing technology has helped reconstruct it. The results of the eight-hour operation at Morriston Hospital in Wales have been “totally life changing," the 29-year-old told BBC News Wales. Although Power was wearing a helmet at the time of the crash in 2012, he was left with broken cheekbones, shattered eye sockets, a broken nose and upper jaw, and a fractured skull, according to a hospital media release obtained by The Huffington Post. He was hospitalized for four months. 

"I can't remember the accident -- I remember five minutes before and then waking up in the hospital a few months later," Power told BBC. Doctors say this is the first surgery they’ve used 3D printing across all phases of a procedure. First, a surgical team took CT scans to create and print a symmetrical 3D model of Power's skull. Then, doctors printed out custom implants and guides to cut and repos…

Everybody Panic: New York Woman Claims She Found a Lizard Head in a Kale Salad

Image
A New York theatre agent reportedly found what looks like the head of a lizard in her kale salad Tuesday, the New York Post reports.



Robin Sandusky, 31, told the newspaper that she ordered in the greens from a Midtown deli called Guy & Gallard. When she saw the foreign object in the leafy greens, she reportedly thought, “‘Oh, is that a piece of asparagus?’ And then I saw that it had eyes, and an arm.” She sent the salad back to the deli, which refunded her purchase, according to the post. In a statement, Guy & Gallard managing partner Jason Jeffries said, “We consistently receive good food inspection scores, and we are currently looking into this issue.”


East Harlem Building Collapse

Image
NEW YORK—Three people died and at least two dozen were injured—including several children—in a likely gas explosion that leveled two residential buildings in East Harlem on Wednesday morning, officials said. At least nine people are unaccounted for, public safety officials said. New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio cautioned that some of the missing may be “going about their normal business” and weren’t in the building at the time of the blast. “There will be a search through the rubble of the building as soon as the fire is put out,” Mr. de Blasio said during a news conference at the scene, near East 116th Street and Park Avenue. “This is a tragedy of the worst kind because there was no indication in time to save people,” he added. So far, there were two people with life-threatening injuries, five with serious but non-life-threatening injuries, and 20 with minor injuries at four local hospitals, a Fire Department of New York spokesman said .

Update on Missing Plane: Plane’s Locating Device Went Silent Before Disappearance

WASHINGTON — One of the mysteries surrounding Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 concerns the aircraft’s transponder, which apparently stopped functioning about 40 minutes into the flight, leaving ground controllers in the dark about where the plane was. A transponder is basically a robotic radio that automatically transmits a response when it receives an inquiry signal. Most airplanes are equipped with them. When an aircraft is under the active supervision of an air traffic control system, it is assigned an identifying code, which the pilot enters into the transponder. The device will then broadcast that code and a bit of additional data, including the aircraft’s current altitude, which civilian ground radar systems generally cannot discern on their own (though military radar often can). Two kinds of radar are used to keep track of air traffic from the ground. One, called primary radar, sends out radio signals and listens for echoes that bounce back from objects in the sky. It can spot aircr…

Angelina Jolie To Have More Cancer Prevention Surgery

Image
The actress made headlines around the world last year after she announced she'd had a preventative double mastectomy in a New York Times op-ed
Less than a year after penning a revealing op-ed in theNew York Times about her decision to undergo a preventative double mastectomy, Angelina Jolie has revealed that she plans to have more cancer-prevention surgery. Last May, Jolie wrote that she’d tested positive for the breast-cancer-related BRCA1 gene, meaning she had a horrifying 87 percent chance of developing the disease. “Once I knew that this was my reality, I decided to be proactive and to minimize the risk as much I could,” Jolie wrote. “I made a decision to have a preventive double mastectomy.” Doctors said the surgery reduced her risk of developing breast cancer to just 5 percent. But carrying the BRCA1 gene also means that Jolie’s risk of developing ovarian cancer—the disease which took her mother’s life at the age of 56—is at 50 percent and the Oscar-winning actress has confir…
