Mother’s Day Parade Shooting Suspect Caught On Camera

s-NEW-ORLEANS-SHOOTING-large

There have been so many tragic instances of hostile individuals taking advantage of proud Americans who gather to celebrate and enjoy one another. From the mass shooting during the screening of The Dark Night Rises in Colorado, to the Boston Marathon shooting, and now this- a shooting on the day designated for celebrating the women who gave us all life.

The man suspected to have committed the crime obviously had no appreciation for his or any other’s mother’s child’s life. The Huffington Post reported:

New Orleans police hope a $10,000 reward and blurry surveillance camera images will lead to arrests in a Mother’s Day shooting that wounded 19 people and showed again how far the city has to go to shake a persistent culture of violence that belies the city’s festive image.
Angry residents said gun violence – which has flared at two other city celebrations this year – goes hand-in-hand with the city’s other deeply rooted problems such as poverty and urban blight. The investigators tasked with solving Sunday’s shooting work within an agency that’s had its own troubles rebounding from years of corruption while trying to halt violent crime.
 “The old people are scared to walk the streets. The children can’t even play outside,” Ronald Lewis, 61, said Monday as he sat on the front stoop of his house, about a half a block from the shooting site. His window sill has a hole from a bullet that hit it last year. Across the street sits a house marked by bullets he said were fired two weeks ago.
 “The youngsters are doing all this,” said Jones, who was away from home when the latest shooting broke out.
 Video released early Monday shows a crowd gathered for a boisterous second-line parade suddenly scattering in all directions, with some falling to the ground. They appear to be running from a man in a white T-shirt and dark pants who turns and runs out of the picture. The image isn’t clear, but police say they hope someone will recognize him and notify investigators.
 Police said there may have been as many as three gunmen. The suspects escaped despite the presence of officers who were interspersed through the crowd as part of routine precautions for such an event.

Study Connects Early Baldness to Prostate Cancer in African Americans

New research finds a link between early baldness and cancer of the male reproductive gland known as the prostate. The study involved African-American men, a group at particularly high risk of prostate cancer.

At first glance, there doesn’t seem to be an obvious connection between prostate cancer and baldness. But University of Pennsylvania researcher Charnita M. Zeigler-Johnson, PhD, says the two may be linked through a testosterone product called dihydrotestosterone, or DHT.  The hormonal chemical, Zeigler-Johnson explains, “is a form of testosterone that seems to be associated with male-pattern baldness and also connected to prostate cancer occurrence and prostate cancer progression.”

Previous studies have looked at the link between baldness and prostate cancer, but Zeigler-Johnson says this is the first to focus on African-American men, whose prostate cancer death rate is two and a half times that of white American men.

In the study, Zeigler-Johnson and her colleagues asked about 300 prostate cancer patients and some 200 non-patients about their baldness history. They then compared the type of baldness and the age when the men started losing hair with their medical histories..

The study by Charnita Zeigler-Johnson and her colleagues is published in the journal Cancer Epidemiology, Biomarkers & Prevention.
