Patient’s son kills doctor in China

Angry over a hospital for being unable to save his cancer-stricken father, a Chinese man on Friday stabbed a doctor to death and seriously injured a nurse at the facility in the latest in a series of social revenge attacks in the country.
45-year-old man, surnamed Zhou, killed the doctor at Qilu Hospital of Shandong University in east China’s Shandong Province. He first stabbed the doctor to death and then seriously injured the nurse.
Zhou was later taken into custody.
An initial police investigation showed Zhou committed the attacks because he thought the cancer hospital was to blame for his father’s death, the official Xinhua news agency reported.
Zhou’s father was treated for liver cancer at the facility 13 years ago, according to the investigation. He had died after treatment failed.
It was not known whether the victims were involved in the treatment of Zhou’s father. The incident follows a similar case a few days ago when a a patient angry over poor medical treatment to him set ablaze a hospital.

Striker Totti appeals for Afghan kids
Rome, June 11: Champion Italian striker Francesco Totti has told Italian news agency Adnkronos International he fully backs the appeal it is launching to help Afghanistan’s children.
The appeal follows the Taliban’s reported hanging on Tuesday of a seven-year-old boy in the south and other recent outrages.
“When I hear news of violence against children, it affects me. I cannot understand how people can do harm to such innocent souls,” the captain of AS Roma said.
“As a UNICEF ambassador, I can’t stand by and look on. I appeal to everyone to put an end to such violence in a country where a peace mission has been deployed,” Totti’s message continued.
“It’s totally unacceptable to execute a seven-year-old child because he’s suspected of being a spy. This causes me deep pain, as a man and a father.”
Totti said he was shocked by the number of child victims of violence in Afghanistan and that dozens of children have been imprisoned.
“A civilised society cannot accept all this,” Totti concluded.
As recently as Wednesday, children were among the victims of a suicide bombing at a wedding that killed 40 and injured dozens in southern Afghanistan.

I want to begin with a little story that was told to me by a leading executive at Aptech. He was exercising in a gym with a lot of younger people.

Shekhar Kapur’s Bandit Queen didn’t make the cut. Neither did Shaji Karun’s Piravi, which bagged 31 international awards.
