Man Lived Alongside Dead Father's Body For Four Months
Huffington Post - about 1 year
A man in England lived alongside the decomposing body of his dead father for at least four months until a neighbor spotted the elderly man's skeleton propped up in an armchair, a court heard on Friday. Timothy Brown, 59, sat his dad, Kenneth, 94, down in his favorite seat in their Stafford home after the retiree fell following a fire earlier this year, according to multiple reports. The next day, Brown discovered that his father had died.  But he didn't report the death to authorities and continued living with the body inside the property, Staffordshire Police Detective Constable Andrew Weatherley told Cannock coroner's court, the Guardian reported. It's not known exactly when the fire and fall took place. But Kenneth Brown's death was finally discovered around four months later when a neighbor stopped by on Oct. 18 and found Timothy sitting next to his father's remains, The Sentinel reported. The neighbor called emergency services and Timothy Brown -- described as h ...

Hunt for AIDS cure accelerates as GSK and U.S. experts link up
Yahoo News - almost 2 years
By Ben Hirschler LONDON (Reuters) - Britain's GlaxoSmithKline, which decided last week to retain rather than float off its HIV drugs business, is to collaborate with U.S. scientists in developing a cure for AIDS. The case of Timothy Brown, the so-called "Berlin patient" whose HIV was eradicated by a complex treatment for leukemia in 2007, marked the first cure and the science has been advancing since then. GSK is tapping into the latest expertise by creating an HIV Cure center with the University of North Carolina (UNC) at Chapel Hill and establishing a new jointly owned company. Scientists will study various cure options, including a so-called "shock-and-kill" strategy developed at UNC, which unmasks dormant HIV hiding in white blood cells, so that it can be attacked by a boosted immune system.

Eric Rivera Found Guilty Of Killing NFL Star Sean Taylor
Huffington Post Sports - over 3 years
MIAMI -- MIAMI (AP) — A 23-year-old man was convicted of second-degree murder Monday in the 2007 slaying of Washington Redskins star Sean Taylor during what witnesses say was a botched burglary. The jury deliberated about 16 hours over four days before returning the verdict in the trial of Eric Rivera Jr., who admitted in a videotaped confession to police days after Taylor's death that he fired the fatal shot after kicking in the bedroom door. At the trial, he said on the witness stand that his confession was given only under police pressure and amid purported threats to his family. Rivera was also convicted of armed burglary. Rivera, who was 17 at the time of the slaying, could be sentenced to life in prison. Rivera sat quietly at the defense table with his lawyers after the verdict was announced, showing no reaction or emotion. The courtroom was packed with Taylor and Rivera family members, but there were no outbursts. Neither prosecutors, Taylor's family nor the family of the ...

AIDS research: Cured of HIV?
The Economist - almost 4 years
IN JOURNALISM, cynics suggest, three data points are enough for a trend. As of March 4th, AIDS researchers hope two might be sufficient. On that day Deborah Persaud of Johns Hopkins University announced to the Conference on Retroviruses and Opportunistic Infections, in Atlanta, Georgia, that a patient under her care had been cured of HIV infection. The announcement was hedged with caveats (“functionally cured” was the exact term used). But the bottom line was clear. Dr Persaud thinks her patient, a two-and-a-half-year-old girl, has joined Timothy Brown, a man known to many as the “Berlin patient”, as a human who was once infected with HIV and now no longer is.The girl was born infected because her mother was infected but was not under treatment at the time (which would normally prevent mother-to-child transmission). She was given standard anti-retroviral drugs almost immediately and for 18 months afterwards. Doctors then lost track of her for five months and when she returned to the ...

Brain Scans Can Assess Age
Psych Central - over 4 years
While it isn’t uncommon for people to lie about their age — often passing for someone much older or younger — researchers have found that sophisticated brain scans can be used to accurately pinpoint age, give or take a year. “We have uncovered a ‘developmental clock’ of sorts within the brain — a biological signature of maturation that captures age differences quite well, regardless of other kinds of differences that exist across individuals,” said Timothy Brown, Ph.D., of the University of California, San Diego School of Medicine. Together with researchers from nine other universities, Brown used structural magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) to scan the brains of 885 people ranging in age from 3 to 20. Those scans were used to identify 231 biomarkers of brain anatomy that, when combined, could assess an individual’s age with more than 92 percent accuracy. That’s beyond what’s been possible with any other biological measure. “The fact that we found a collection of brain meas ...

Times Of Trouble: Ex-Offenders Struggle To Escape Past Lives
Huffington Post - over 4 years
NEW YORK -- As Rudy Holder walked down East Harlem's main drag, everyone seemed to remember him. One man after another greeted him with a handshake or a quick, one-armed hug. Each exchange brought a nervous look to Holder's face: Friend or foe? Some of the men he recognized. Some he didn't. But they all knew him. "Trouble," they said, again and again. It was the nickname he'd earned as a teenager. After serving 12 years in prison, Rudy Holder had come home to East Harlem on parole, joining the 725,000 others who are released from correctional facilities each year across the country. Holder's crime was gunning down two rivals, neither fatally, in 1993. In returning to Harlem, he was hoping to avoid the cycle that engulfs so many ex-convicts and lands them back in jail time after time. Of the 7 million Americans (1 in 33) who were incarcerated, on probation or parole in 2010, more than 4 in 10 can be expected to return to prison within three years, according to a 2011 ...

Fireman Drops Lawsuit Against Ground Zero ‘Mosque’
Fay Observer Blogs - almost 5 years
It was a rather well-designed building! (Courtesy of CBS) If you thought the Ground Zero "mosque" struggle ended when the courts struck down a lawsuit against the cultural center last July, you are a little off. A notice of appeal was later filed, but that was finally withdrawn last Friday, according to The Real Deal. Timothy Brown, a retired New York City firefighter, initially filed the suit back in October 2010 to the New York State Supreme Court. The suit challenged the recent Landmarks Preservation Commissions denial to grant the 150-year old factory landmark status. If the building was marked as a landmark, then it would make it harder, but not impossible, for the site to be redeveloped. But even with the court shooting it down, and then the later withdrawal of his appeal, Mr. Brown still views it as a victory. “Basically, we achieved our primary objective, which was to raise public awareness of the issue," Brett Josphe, one of Brown's attorneys, told The Real Deal. "M ...
