Man sues Florida hospital after his leg found in the garbage

Man sues Florida hospital after his leg found in the garbage | Archaeology, Culture, Religion and Spirituality | Scoop.it
By David Adams MIAMI (Reuters) - A south Florida man is suing a hospital for emotional distress, saying his leg was amputated and thrown in the garbage with his name tag still on it. John Timiriasieff, 56, had his right leg amputated below the knee in October at Doctors Hospital in Coral Gables. "Rather than properly disposing of the plaintiff's limb as expected and as required by Florida law, Doctors Hospital threw the Plaintiff's amputated limb into the garbage, with tags indicating it belonged to the Plaintiff," according to the lawsuit filed on Wednesday in Miami-Dade County Circuit Court. A month later, Timiriasieff said his family was contacted by homicide detectives investigating if he had been the victim of foul play.

Former Boko Haram hostages undergo tests, trauma treatment

Former Boko Haram hostages undergo tests, trauma treatment | Archaeology, Culture, Religion and Spirituality | Scoop.it
Many of the women and girls rescued from Boko Haram are traumatised and showing signs of depression, with psychological counselling urgently needed as they recover in camps in northeast Nigeria, relief officials said Monday. "For some of them, who are really showing signs of trauma, we need to make them realise that this is not the end of life," said Sa'ad Bello, the National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) camp coordinator in Adamawa state. "They need trauma counselling and psycho-social support... to develop coping mechanisms," he told AFP, adding that many of the female hostages appeared to be suffering from serious depression, likely after enduring sustained abuse by their Islamists captors. A total of 275 women and children were brought to a camp in Adamawa's capital Yola, at the weekend, following a military operation to free them in Boko Haram's Sambisa Forest stronghold.

'No room' for gays in Kenya, says deputy president | Archaeology, Culture, Religion and Spirituality | Scoop.it
Kenya's deputy president, William Ruto, has told worshippers at a church service in Nairobi that homosexuality had no place in the east African nation, reports said Monday. Homophobia is on the rise across much of Africa and remains illegal in many countries, including Kenya where it was outlawed under British colonial legislation. "We will not allow homosexuality in our society as it violates our religious and cultural beliefs," Ruto was quoted as telling a cheering congregation at the Jesus Winner Ministry Church on the outskirts of the capital.

Congo-Brazzaville bans Muslim women from wearing full veil | Archaeology, Culture, Religion and Spirituality | Scoop.it
Congo-Brazzaville has banned Muslim women from wearing the full face-veil in public, citing security reasons, an Islamic association told AFP on Saturday. "The Interior Minister (Raymond Zephirin Mboulou) notified us of the decision to prohibit Muslim women from wearing the full veil. The decision was taken in order to prevent any act of terrorism and insecurity," said El Hadj Abdoulaye Djibril Bopaka, who heads the Islamic Supreme Council of Congo-Brazzaville. "Muslim women can now only wear the full veil at home and in places of worship, but not in public places," he said, adding that only a tiny minority of women in Congo-Brazzaville actually cover their faces and entire bodies.

Mohammed cartoon event group pushes religious envelope

Mohammed cartoon event group pushes religious envelope | Archaeology, Culture, Religion and Spirituality | Scoop.it
The group behind the Prophet Mohammed cartoon event in Texas where police killed two gunmen Sunday has a history of making provocative statements about Islam that it says are aimed at defending "freedom" and critics see as antagonizing Muslims. The American Freedom Defense Initiative (AFDI), led by provocative activist Pamela Geller, offered a $10,000 prize in a competition to draw a cartoon of the Prophet Mohammed. Such satirical images have prompted violence in the past including in Paris this year when 12 people were gunned down by Islamists at the satirical weekly Charlie Hebdo. AFDI supporters say the event was meant to protect the freedom of speech in the United States, which they say is eroding due to violent threats by radicals against people who draw the Prophet Mohammed.

(Reuters) - A professor at Texas A&M University's campus in Galveston has flunked his entire strategic management class amid claims of cheating and harassment, though university officials say the decision won't stick, the publication Inside Higher Ed reported.

India on Saturday began a five-yearly count of asiatic lions in the western state of Gujarat's Gir sanctuary, the last habitat for the endangered big cats globally, an official said. The last census in 2010 revealed 411 lions were living in the 20,000 square kilometre (7,700 square miles) sanctuary up from 359 lions in 2005, with officials expecting to record a significant increase in the number of wild cats. "The census that began today will continue until May 5 in five districts of the state. Officials said the experts conducting the census would use a combination of direct sightings, photographs and GPS tracking technology to document each lion and avoid double counting.

Ten Russian bikers reach German border ahead of WWII rally | Archaeology, Culture, Religion and Spirituality | Scoop.it
Ten pro-Kremlin Russian bikers, part of a larger group on a controversial World War II victory ride through Europe, reached the German border late Sunday, the Bavarian authorities said. Having been turned back at the Polish and Lithuanian borders the members of the Night Wolves, a fiercely nationalistic motorcycle club backed by Russian President Vladimir Putin, still hope to ride into the German capital Berlin on Saturday to celebrate the Soviet Union's role in the victory over Nazi Germany. The ten bikers, the first of the Night Wolves to reach Germany, left Moscow on April 25 and crossed into the southern Bavarian town of Bad Reichenhall from Austria, a local police spokesman told the DPA news agency. Ahead of the rally in Berlin, they plan on Monday to visit the former Nazi concentration camp at Dachau, near Munich, where German Chancellor Angela Merkel commemorated its liberation on Sunday, Night Wolves spokesman Alexander Shapovalov was quoted as saying.

Festive Baltimore rallies in hope after police charged | Archaeology, Culture, Religion and Spirituality | Scoop.it
By Scott Malone and Ian Simpson BALTIMORE (Reuters) - Thousands of people took to the streets of Baltimore on Saturday as anger over the death of a young black man turned to hopes for change following swift criminal charges against six police officers. There was an upbeat mood at the march from the housing projects where 25-year-old Freddie Gray was arrested last month to a plaza in front of city hall where the city's chief prosecutor announced charges on Friday ranging from murder to assault in his death. Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake, who has largely been absent from demonstrations over Gray's death, mingled with the crowd on Saturday near the West Baltimore intersection that saw the worst of rioting on Monday after Gray's funeral. He died on April 19, a week after suffering a fatal spinal injury while in police custody.

Egypt jails 14 policemen, doctor for torture deaths

Egypt jails 14 policemen, doctor for torture deaths | Archaeology, Culture, Religion and Spirituality | Scoop.it
Egypt's top court on Sunday sentenced 14 policemen and a doctor to jail terms for torturing two prisoners to death in 2006, a judicial official said. A colonel was jailed for three years, while 13 policemen were given one-year prison terms each in a case that also saw a doctor sentenced for a year. It was unclear whether the jail terms had already been served since the incident occurred nearly a decade ago. Sunday's verdict, which is final and cannot be appealed, comes after two policemen were referred to trial in February on charges of torturing and beating to death a lawyer jailed after a pro-Islamist protest.
