Mohammed Abbkr: Man who set fire to two elderly people leaving mosques in London and Birmingham sentenced to indefinite hospital order | UK News

A man found guilty of attempting to murder two elderly men by setting them on fire as they left separate mosques has been sentenced to an indefinite hospital order. Mohammed Abbkr attacked Hashi Odowa, 82, and Mohammed Rayaz, 70, outside mosques in London and Birmingham in February and March last year. The 29-year-old claimed he believed they were among several people “controlling him through magic”. When he was convicted in November, West Midlands Police said his victims were left with “long-lasting physical injuries and significant mental trauma”. The court had heard how Abbkr prayed with the congregation before waiting for his victims outside. He then followed both men, sprayed them with petrol from a water bottle, and used a lighter to set them on fire. The court heard Abbkr set fire to Mr Odowa on 27 February as he made his way to a neighbour’s car outside West Ealing Islamic Centre in west London. He attacked Mr Rayaz on 20 March after he left the Dudley Road Mosque in Birmingham. Abbkr – who came to …

Hospital chaplain J.S. Park talks grief in new book

Hospital chaplain J.S. Park talks grief in new book

(RNS) — “Everything happens for a reason” might be one of the least helpful things you can say to someone who just lost a loved one, according to veteran hospital chaplain J.S. Park. But while Park understands why people grasp for what he calls “Swiss cheese theology” in moments of loss, working as an interfaith chaplain at a Level 1 trauma center in Tampa, Florida, has taught him that grief is less about letting go and moving on, and more about letting in and moving with. In his latest book, “As Long as You Need: Permission to Grieve,” Park draws on nearly a decade of sitting with people on the worst day of their lives, offering vivid stories from the bedside and his own life to show why an unrushed, authentic approach to grieving allows people to honor their loss for what it is. Religion News Service spoke to Park about how not to talk to the grieving, how Park lost and found his Christian faith as a chaplain and where he finds moments of …

West Ham’s Earthy discharged from hospital after head injury

West Ham United midfielder George Earthy has been discharged from hospital after sustaining a head injury during their 2-0 defeat by Fulham in the Premier League, the club said on Monday. The match on Sunday was temporarily halted in the 85th minute when academy graduate Earthy, who had just made his league debut as a substitute, went down after colliding with team mate Edson Alvarez. The 19-year-old was taken off the pitch on a stretcher before being taken to hospital. The club said he would be subject to FA and Premier League concussion guidelines ahead of his return. “George is back home and we will continue to monitor him over the coming days as he completes the graduated return to play programme,” Richard Collinge, the club’s performance director, said in a statement. West Ham host newly crowned Bundesliga champions Bayer Leverkusen in the return leg of their Europa League quarter-final on Thursday. They trail the German side 2-0 from the first leg 2-0.

Patient Leaves Hospital as Transplanted Gene-Hacked Pig Organ Seems to Be Functioning Well

Patient Leaves Hospital as Transplanted Gene-Hacked Pig Organ Seems to Be Functioning Well

Image by Mass General Hospital/Michelle Rose Last month, surgeons at the Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston transplanted a kidney from a gene-hacked pig into a living 62-year-old man. The unusual procedure appears to have been a resounding success, with the patient being discharged from the hospital on Wednesday. The achievement could usher in a new era, potentially reducing our reliance on both hard-to-come-by human donor kidneys and the expensive dialysis machines that treat kidney disease and failure. The patient, Richard Slayman, had been struggling with kidney disease for over a decade. His previously transplanted human kidney had also shown signs of failure last year. But with his new kidney, which came from a genetically modified pig courtesy of biotech company eGenesis, Slayman is already doing much better. The organ is producing urine and removing waste from the blood, among other key functions, as the New York Times reports. “This moment — leaving the hospital today with one of the cleanest bills of health I’ve had in a long time — is one I wished would come …

Pig kidney transplant patient leaves Massachusetts hospital | US News

The first patient to receive a kidney transplanted from a genetically modified pig has been discharged from hospital. Richard “Rick” Slayman received the organ in March in a world first after undergoing a four-hour surgery at the Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) in Boston. The 62-year-old suffers from end-stage renal failure, a chronic disease where the kidneys can no longer function on their own. “This moment – leaving the hospital today with one of the cleanest bills of health I’ve had in a long time – is one I wished would come for many years,” he said in a statement on Wednesday. “Now, it’s a reality and one of the happiest moments of my life.” Image: Mr Slayman thanked well-wishers. Pic: Michelle Rose/Massachusetts General Hospital He thanked all the medical staff involved and who have cared for him – before and after – his “historic transplant”. He added: “I’m excited to resume spending time with my family, friends, and loved ones free from the burden of dialysis that has affected my quality of life for many …

University of Southampton uses space tech to curb hospital infections

University of Southampton uses space tech to curb hospital infections

Scientists from the University of Southampton are using space technology to control infections in hospitals, while also helping to reduce their carbon emissions. Project PASTA (Plasma Air Sterilisation and Treatment Apparatus) utilises the same plasma technology used to de-orbit satellites, such as on the Space X Falcon 9 flight.  Developed by Dr Minkwan Kim, associate professor in astronautics, it’s now been adapted for use on Earth – with prototypes currently being trialled at Royal Hampshire County Hospital in Winchester. “In space, we’re using the application’s physical momentum, while on Earth, we’re looking at the chemical characteristics to kill pathogens and viruses that commonly cause healthcare-associated infections”, said Dr Kim. Read the March 2024 issue of The Business Magazine, including our feature on skills “More than 300,000 patients a year in England acquire an airborne virus while receiving medical treatment in hospital. “Our main aim is to address that problem directly, helping to protect both patients and staff within hospital environments. “When plasma is generated, it also generates reactive species. This makes pathogens believe they’re exposed to external …
