Another surgeon uses bogus Oxford degree

first_imgA Ugandan doctor was arrested last weekend after claiming to have earned a degree in Medicine from Oxford University, among other institutions.Moses Tumusiime, 28, also used the aliases Dr Job Mike Feeth and Dr Job Mark Vie, and was able to perform surgery in over four Ugandan hospital before he was caught.In addition to Oxford, he carried forged certificates for various medical qualifications from Makerere University in Uganda, Kenwood International University of Science and Technology, San Francisco Northern California College of Science, India University of Science and Technology, and the Medical and Dental Practitioners Council in Uganda.Police arrested Mr Tumusiime in the Ugandan capital city, Kampala, and he will now be charged with forgery and posing as a medical officer.Simon Nsubega, a spokesman for the Kampala police force, recommended that employers carry out more careful background checks on the educational qualifications of their staff.Nsubega also suggested that the Uganda National Examinations Board as well as national and international universities consider more sophisticated degree certificates to combat forgery.After his arrest, Mr Tumusiime said that he had at one time been pursuing a Bachelor of Medicine at Oxford University but had dropped out due to financial concerns.However, a spokesman for the University reported that “we don’t have any record of anyone by that name enrolling at Oxford”.Last week a 29 year old Bavarian banker, who had performed 190 operations, was found to have faked the Oxford degree that enabled him to gain a position as a trainee doctor.‘Dr Christian E’ created the certificate on this home computer in 2003, and was only caught by an anonymous tip-off to the University Hospital of Erlangen.last_img read more

Inside Harvard’s green labs

first_imgHarvard scientists are all for collaborating when it comes to research. But when it comes to saving energy in their labs, the competition can get fierce.Whether it’s closing fume hood sashes when they’re not in use or adjusting freezer temperatures, researchers in labs across campus are setting the sustainability bar higher for each other through friendly contests. And their steps are paying off — a building-wide energy-efficiency project at Northwest Labs alone is projected to save $900,000 a year. 7Using gas chromatography and mass spectrometry, researchers in the Northwest Labs analyze trace residues on ancient vessels found in Turkey. A building-wide energy-efficiency project at the labs is projected to save $900,000 a year by adjusting ventilation and airflow levels.

Alaskan governor makes changes to AGDC board

first_imgAlaska governor Michael Dunleavy has made changes to the board of the Alaska Gasline Development Corporation (AGDC), the company in charge of developing the Alaska liquefied natural gas (LNG) project. Governor Dunleavy named department of labor commissioner Tamika Ledbetter and department of environmental conservation commissioner Jason Brune to serve as State of Alaska department-level appointees to the AGDC board.Doug Smith and Dan Coffey, both of Anchorage, were also named to replace outgoing board members Hugh Short of Girdwood and Joey Merrick of Eagle River. Short and Merrick were both notified of their dismissal from the AGDC board earlier, a statement by the governor says.“Alaskans have long focused on the benefits of reduced energy costs, bringing our rich energy resources to market and monetizing our North Slope gas. Today’s announcement continues those goals, while putting in place the personnel to make diligent review of the project,” said Dunleavy.AGDC is governed by a seven-member board of directors, five public members and two principal department heads of the State of Alaska. New members of the board will join AGDC board members Dave Cruz of Palmer, David Wight of Anchorage, and Warren Christian of North Pole.AGDC has taken leadership of the project at the end of 2016. Partners in Alaska LNG are ExxonMobil, BP and ConocoPhillips.The partners are looking to commercialize Alaska’s North Slope natural gas resources through proposed facilities including a liquefaction facility in the Nikiski area on the Kenai Peninsula.Other facilities include an 800-mile large diameter pipeline, up to eight compression stations, at least five take-off points for in-state gas delivery, a gas treatment plant located on the North Slope and transmission lines to transport gas from Prudhoe Bay and Point Thomson to the gas treatment plant.The project is designed to export up to 20 million metric tons of liquefied natural gas per year and the construction works are expected to start this year.last_img read more

Sunken Supply Ship Will Not Affect Singapore Vessel Traffic

first_imgThe recently sunken supply vessel will not affect shipping traffic in the Singapore Strait, according to the Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore (MPA).The Dominica-flagged vessel Ocean Cooper 2 capsized and sank within Singapore territorial waters in mid-February 2019.MPA Singapore has since the incident completed a hydrographic survey of the wreck site.The wreck is located 41 meters below the sea surface, significantly deeper than the deepest draught of transiting vessels, which is 22 meters below the sea surface.The authority has therefore determined that the wreck does not pose a risk to the safety of navigation and will not affect shipping traffic in the area.MPA will update its nautical charts to indicate the location of the wreck, and issue a Notice to Mariners to keep the maritime community updated.last_img read more

Ugandans neglect of female condom becomes a problem

first_imgLow usage of the female condom in Uganda is becoming a major concern for health officials. After a successful campaign to reduce HIV and Aids in the country, prevalence rates have started to rise again.While the male condom is a success story, the female ones are struggling, especially among men, largely due to cultural biases.Health officials are now worried that these sentiments could reverse the country’s gains in the fight against HIV and Aids.Recent government statistics show a reversal in HIV prevalence rates from 6.4% previously to 7.3% currentlyCulturally in Uganda, men tend to make the decisions regarding sex. This is something that activists say has exposed women more to the virus.HIV prevention campaigners believe that empowering women and encouraging them to use female condoms will help them to protect themselves.Experts say if the country is to roll back rising HIV prevalence, the female condom must be a major part of Uganda’s HIV prevention strategy.
