It sounds like something out of a science fiction novel, more bizarre even than Walt Disney’s cryogenically frozen body, but according to New Scientist magazine, this radical, ethically sensitive surgery could be ready in 2017.
The proposal comes from surgeon Sergio Canavero from the Turin Advanced Neuromodulation Group, who wants to use the surgery to extend the lives of people whose organs are riddled with cancer and whose muscles and nerves are degenerated.
Canavero will be launching the world’s first ever human head transplant at the
We go through the journey of life looking for different things, love being very important in our journey quest. We go into relationships to accomplish this task and we meet people from different tribes looking for that one true love.
Timing is something that we find hard to get quite right with relationships. We meet the person of our dreams the month before they leave to go study. We form an incredibly close friendship with an attractive person who is already taken. One relationship ends because our partner isn’t ready to get serious and another ends because they’re getting serious too
With many women opting to start a family later in life, as well as the rise of infertility in our stressed out, urbanised world, fertility preservation is becoming a real option.
e|Care spoke to Bernice Lits and Tanya Rubin, two social workers who have helped women to deal with the often debilitating psychological aspects of infertility for more than 20 years.
The modern world and rising infertility rates
“It’s getting harder to conceive for many women. Part of this is our modern world – the stress, food, the way we live. Peak fertility is between the ages of
Stuffy nose, itchy watery eyes, and a runny nose – these are the signs of a sinus headache, right? Not necessarily.
In four out of five cases people are really experiencing a migraine, according to WebMD, and neurology professor Peter Goadsby, MD, at the University of California who says that it’s a widespread misconception.
The Mayo Clinic notes that it’s easy to confuse a migraine with a sinus headache because the symptoms often overlap. In fact, they explain that in around 90% of cases where people visit a doctor complaining of a sinus headache, they’re really experiencing a
The World Health Organisation has declared the Zika virus an international public health emergency, prompted by growing concern that it could cause birth defects. Until recently, global health officials paid little attention to the Zika virus that circulated in the same regions as Dengue and Chikungunya viruses. It is estimated that four million people could be infected by the end of the year. Pregnant women have been urged not to travel to about 24 countries, mostly in the Caribbean and Latin America, where the outbreak is growing. Zika infection appears to be linked to the
I’m here to tell you a home truth: You do not have to be friends with your ex. Look, I get it, I really do: After a break up, it is so, so tempting to try to be friends with the person you were dating. You might feel this way for a lot of reasons. Regardless of whether you were the dump-er or the dump-ee, the idea of suddenly going from seeing someone all the time to not seeing him or her at all is simply unimaginable. Or maybe you were friends before you dated, so you feel like you should be able to go back to that. Or you think that, if you could just hang out once in a while, the break-up wouldn’t feel quite so
Soon into my freshman year of college, I met a great boy. I stopped seeing other people because... well, because I didn’t want to.
I liked him, and we were regularly hooking up, so why would I bother being with anyone else? In high school, this made sense. In college, not so much.
After a month-long romance, I was pretty sure we were on the fast track to being in a real, bonafide relationship. That is, until I went home for a couple days... and he brought another girl to a date event that weekend.
At first, I didn’t see
Someone said Lagos is turning turn Dubai before his very eyes and i cannot but agree with him. Lagos is witnessing some transformations that can only but be noticed over a period of time.
Most noticeable one is the work currently on-going in Eko Atlantic. For everyday that i pass through that route, there is something new coming up and this is just the beginning.
Below are some pictures of Lagos' transformation into our own Dubai.
Most men hate to admit they are amateurs in matters concerning the fairer s-ex. Makes them feel less masculine somehow but we all have loads to learn on this. Here are a few mistakes guys make.
1. Choice of venue for first date: Bars and clubs won't work; your place or her's is a bad idea too. The idea is to get to know each other so bars/clubs with loud music will get in the way of that and staying home might lead to s-ex (which there is nothing wrong with if the goal is to be "friends with benefits) and might give wrong impressions.
