The French professor and cardiologist Philippe Menasché would be in charge of the intervention, which is part of the experimental treatment with cardiac stem cells that the German has been undergoing for the past year.“The aim is to regenerate Michael’s nervous system,” neurosurgeon Dr. Nicola Acciari told the Italian press, noting that the former Ferrari and Mercedes driver was suffering from muscle atrophy and osteoporosis.Last December, Schumacher was admitted to the continuous monitoring unit of the Cardiovascular Surgery Department of the Georges Pompidou European Hospital (Paris).He had consulted Philippe Menasché, a surgeon specialising in cell therapy for heart failure.Since the German champion’s accident, information has been very scarce. In June 2019, Jean Todt, a great friend of “Schumi”, especially since their joint stint with Ferrari, had mentioned Michael.“Michael is very well surrounded, he lives with his family in his house between Geneva and Lausanne. He continues to fight.”At the end of 2018, the former Scuderia Ferrari boss had already told Auto Bild Motorsport that he had watched an F1 Grand Prix (the one in Brazil) alongside “Schumi”.On December 29, 2013, his head hit a rock after a fall during a ski descent.He was in an artificial coma for four weeks and then returned to his home in Switzerland to be with his family. —Tags: MeribelMichael SchumacherPhilippe MenascheSurgerylast_img read more

Undercover Cops impersonate journalists

first_imgParliament drama continues…sits at press table in chambersAnother situation almost escalated in Parliament on Wednesday when two plain clothes Police Officers took turns pretending to be reporters while sitting at the press table in the National Assembly.When day three of the meeting of the Committee of Supply commenced onUndercover Cops posing as journalists in ParliamentWednesday, the journalists noticed a strange person sitting at the press table but raised no alarm. However, as the day progressed, and it was observed that the stranger made no attempt to fit in nor communicate with other journalists, this left reporters suspicious.That suspicion was heightened when the first stranger was replaced by a second one, who acted in the same manner. It was also observed that the second stranger had a bulge at his waist, resulting in many of the journalists believing that he may have been armed.As such, a complaint was lodged with the Clerk of the National Assembly, Sherlock Isaacs, who immediately investigated. He reported that the officers were there on assignment but was unable to determine who authorised the assignment.The officers were immediately summoned and ordered to leave the precinct of the Public Buildings which they did.It was also related that acting Police Commissioner David Ramnarine, had no idea as to who authorised the officers to work undercover in the National Assembly.He promised to investigate and determine who ordered that the officers’ presence be in the National Assembly and that they impersonate journalists at the press table.Isaacs told reporters that the officers had no permission to sit at the press table and added that they were improperly attired as well.He noted that the National Assembly gives permission to have two undercover officers from the Special Branch along with two uniformed female officers in the public gallery at every Sitting of the House.When contacted, A Division (Georgetown-East Bank Demerara) Commander, Marlon Chapman told this publication that the incident was a “genuine mix up” that was “rectified” but did not indulge in further details.The incident once again raises the question of the safety of parliamentarians and all those within the confines of the parliamentary Chambers during every sitting of the House. Just last Friday, the greater public saw the invasion of the National Assembly by a woman dressed as Santa Claus ringing a bell and carrying a dictionary along with other paraphernalia.Her invasion seemed to be well-planned, since it happened as soon as most of the Government Ministers left the Chambers.last_img read more
