Bawa-Garba: Jeremy Hunt orders review into medical negligence charges

Health and Social Care Secretary Jeremy Hunt has ordered an urgent review into gross medical manslaughter charges in healthcare. The move follows a High Court ruling to uphold the General Medical Council’s (GMC) decision to strike off  junior doctor Hadiza Bawa-Garba following the death of a six-year-old boy from sepsis at Leicester Royal Infirmary.Hide related content:  Show related contentread more

In this study, the peel, pulp, and seeds of Vitis labrusca L. grapes were characterized by LC-DAD and ICP OES and changes in polyphenols, macro- and microelements were monitored using simulated human digestion. The pulp and seeds were characterized by flavanols, and the peels were high in phenolic acids. After the digestion, the highest bioaccessibility was found for quercetin (85%), while anthocyanins diglucosides were more bioaccessible in the gastric phase (153% and 113% for malvidin and cyanidin, respectively). The digestion of grape peels resulted in higher bioaccessibility of most minerals, suggesting the nutritional...

This study examines the usefulness of ferrosilicon as a candidate feedstock material for wire-based 3D printers designed for in-space manufacturing. Alloys of composition ranging from pure iron to 12 wt% Si were synthesized and their electrical and mechanical properties characterized. The melts were cast into rods for mechanical testing to determine ultimate strength and ductility. It was determined that the samples above 3 wt% Si were too brittle to be pulled into wire and ruptured at low strain values. The 3 wt% Si sample and iron had comparable mechanical properties relative to samples of higher silicon content but with...
