A brief history of plastic surgery, from ancient Egypt to Beverly Hills

Written by Oscar Holland, CNN

Plastic surgery has become synonymous with the quest for youth and beauty, albeit with varying degrees of success. But the field has, for centuries, been driven by medical necessity — and it has nothing to do with plastic.

The discipline derives its name from the Greek word “plastikos” — to mold or give form. And while the idea of perfecting yourself surgically is a relatively recent phenomenon, there is evidence of reconstructive surgery going back to antiquity.

The oldest-known procedures appear in an ancient Egyptian medical text called the “Edwin Smith Papyrus.” Thought to be

Byron Donalds: People don’t call ‘activists or politicians’ when in danger, they call the police

House Oversight and Reform Committee Rep. Byron Donalds, R-Fla., said on Tuesday that when people of color are in danger, they don’t call activists and politicians, they call the police.

“I got a text from my mom this morning. She still lives in Brooklyn, New York. Hi, Mom. And she said point-blank, son, you were right last summer: Defunding the police is only going to hurt the inner city. It’s only going to hurt Black and brown families because they are the ones who call the police when something goes wrong,” Donalds told “America’s Newsroom.”

Italy’s economy unexpectedly grew 0.1% in the first quarter of the year, helped by over a year of government spending to counter the impact of successive lockdowns.

Quarterly growth was revised from a previous reading that showed a contraction of 0.4%, Italy’s national statistics bureau, or ISTAT, said on Tuesday.

The figures could help bolster confidence in Italy’s economic rebound after being one of the hardest-hit European nations by the pandemic in 2020, when gross domestic product shrank almost 9%. Italian government bonds

Time to challenge Argentina’s white European self-image, black history experts say | Argentina

Argentina has long taken pride in its European heritage. The mass migration of 7 million Europeans, mostly Spanish and Italian, between 1850 and 1950, created a racial profile many Argentinians feel distinguishes their country from the rest of Latin America even today.

“Mexicans descend from the Aztecs, Peruvians from the Incas – but Argentinians descend from the ships,” goes an old saying that encapsulates Argentina’s perception of itself as a nation of transplanted white Europeans.

But that Eurocentric view is being vehemently disputed as not only outdated but also factually untrue by a generation of young Afro-descendant researchers and

BBC – Travel – South Africa’s language spoken in 45 ‘clicks’

On the outskirts of Upington, in South Africa’s Northern Cape, there lives a queen. The queen is elderly and when she dies it may not just be she who is gone, but an entire realm.

Katrina Esau is 88. Her community crowned her Queen of the Western Nǁnǂe (ǂKhomani) San in 2015. A year earlier, then-president Jacob Zuma presented her with the National Order of the Baobab in Silver.

For the previous eight decades, Esau had gone largely unnoticed. Her people, the San – of whom the Western Nǁnǂe (ǂKhomani) are one group of many – are good at that.
