Lunch break boob jobs
Monday, July 9, 2007
Women could be having boob jobs in their lunch breaks as early as next year, according to a scientific journal.

A fast-track breast enlargement process is to be rolled out by a Californian biotech company and could be introduced across Europe by next year, the Chemistry and Industry magazine says.
The procedure, called Celution, takes just over an hour and involves injecting a "super-charged'' fat mixture into breast tissue.

Fat is taken from a patient's buttocks or stomach using minor liposuction under local anaesthetic.

The useful stem cells are separated out and an hour later a dose of stem and regenerative cells is packaged into a cartridge ready for injection.
It costs a few thousand dollars and the breasts enlarge over about six months, according to the program's creator Cytori Therapeutics.

Cytori Therapeutics head of research and development Kai Pinkernel said the company's initial focus will be on reconstructive surgery in breast cancer patients.
"The super-charged fat graft survives really well and fills in the volume defect left by partial mastectomy,'' Pinkernel said.

It is still unclear how the defects are repaired and clinical trials are currently under way.
The process has been approved in Germany, which means it is legal across the EU, the Chemistry and Industry magazine reported.

Clinicians will apparently have to wait until the trials end early in 2008 before they can recommend the procedure to patients.

Tramp is internet star
Thursday, July 5, 2007
A 78-year-old tramp who can tell the time without a watch has become an internet star.

Gordon Roberts, who lives in Bournemouth, has had a site dedicated to him on Facebook, reports the Sun.
And it already has more than 4,500 members after just a few weeks.

Gordon was already well known in Bournemouth for his extraordinary ability to know the time within two minutes without wearing a watch.
Local man Chris Kimber, 24, decided to set up an appreciation group on networking site Facebook.

But people from all over the UK began signing up - and users from Australia, America and South Africa are now joining the fun.
Creator Chris, a Bournemouth University student, said: "I thought it'd be fun to set up a group around Gordon, but I did not expect it to take off."

Fans have even arranged a party for members - who must dress like their hero - in Poole on July 29.
When asked about his fame, Gordon said: "I heard about it, but I don't know much about it."
