Over 100 Top AIDS Researchers Killed In Malaysian Plane Crash

Originally posted on HelloBeautiful:

malaysian-planeThe Malaysian plane (MH17) that was shot down in the Ukraine yesterday contained over 100 of the world’s top AIDS researchers, as they were en route to a conference in Melbourne, Australia. As of midnight Australia time on Friday, conference organizers said they had only been able to confirm seven names. Among the dead are World Health Organization advisor Glenn Thomas, as well as research giant and lauded humanitarian Dr. Joep Lange and his wife, Jacqueline van Tongeren, who has been researching AIDS for three decades. So that’s 30 years of AIDS research, literally shot down. Dr. Lange has written more than 350 papers and spent his career fighting for access to low-cost AIDS treatment in Africa. The International Aids Society said that Dr Lange’s death meant “the HIV/Aids movement has truly lost a giant.” Wow. What will this mean for the future of AIDS research?

Your local barbershop probably consists of TVs broadcasting ESPN, animated banter on almost any subject and music to match the vibe of the shop. The only literature you would expect to find is a magazine. A Palm Beach County, Fla., barbershop is altering this traditional view of barbershops by taking away the televisions and radios and adding a library of books. The owner of Royal Touch Barbershop, Reggie Ross, is promoting literacy by asking his young customers to read one of the books he provides while they wait to get their haircut. Ross extends the option for children to continue reading the book during their haircut. He even asks them to read aloud to him and sparks discussions with them about the book. Read more.

A Florida man who allegedly stabbed another man at an Orange County, Fla., bus stop went on a racist rant in court on Thursday morning.

Police stated that Thomas Thorpe stabbed victim Donald Sacco several times at the bus stop near Sixth Street in the Taft area on Wesdnesday. But he was held at gunpoint by a passerby until police arrived to arrest Thorpe.

Things got strange the next day in court when Thorpe told the judge not want an attorney to represent him against the murder charges he’s facing.

“Do you want a public defender appointed?” the judge asked, according to the Orlando Sentinel.

“Uh, no,” said Thorpe. “I’ve had a lousy experience with that.”

Thorpe said he believes attorneys screw people.

The judge, instead, thinks Thorpe has a mental problem and insisted on an attorney, which led to an awkward exchange with Thorpe.

“Thomas George Thorpe stated his case. Can I go now?”…

Raymond Frolander, 18, who reportedly admitted to sexually assaulting the man’s son, is still being held without bond inside the Orange County Jail. As Atlanta Daily World reported before, Frolander was considered a close family friend and was entrusted to look after the 11-year-old boy for the past three years until he was literally caught with his pants down inside the boy’s bedroom by the father who had come home unexpectedly.

This is what Frolander looked like before the vicious beating that nearly took his life:

The Black barbershop isn’t just the place where generations of boys and men go to get their routine haircuts and shaves. The barbershop is where generations of Black boys and men fellowship, seek counsel, get mentored and come out feeling brand new like crisp money into a world that doesn’t always recognize their worth. Thanks to the vision of one Los Angeles doctor on a mission, the barbershop will soon be a place Black men can also get their lives saved.

Ronald G. Victor, MD, director of the Hypertension Center in the Cedars-Sinai Heart Institute, was recently awarded an $8.5 million grant for a revolutionary health initiative that will train African-American barbers from 20 LA shops to screen for hypertension.

Commonly referred to as high blood pressure, hypertension can lead to stroke, chronic kidney disease, heart failure and a host of other complications when left undiagnosed or mismanaged.
