    The transplant recipient, who had been born without a uterus, was 32 years old at the time of the surgery in September 2016. (The patient's identity remains anonymous, which is typical for published case studies.) Her diagnosis: Mayer-Rokitansky-Küster-Hauser syndrome, a genetic condition that affects one in 4,500 women and causes a patient's vagina and uterus to be either absent or underdeveloped, although her external genitals appear normal and her ovaries still function and contain eggs. Months before receiving a uterus transplant, the patient underwent in-vitro fertilization. This resulted in eight good-quality early-stage embryos, which were cryopreserved in the hopes of...

Stearney was a decorated professional and a devoted father, a devoted husband and a good friend."

    Republicans in the United States Senate are poised to hold their razor-thin majority, and possibly add to it by a few seats, boosted by the partisan spat over newly minted Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh. Even as the Democratic Party is on the cusp of surfing a tide of suburban discontent with President Trump and taking power in the House of Representatives, a decidedly favorable map of battlegrounds that runs right through the heart of some of the most conservative states in America will protect Republican control of the Senate. Senators serve six-year terms, and only about one third of...

    Vietnamese President Tran Dai Quang, one of three top leaders in the Southeast Asian country, has died at age 61, according to state media, which says he suffered from a "serious illness." Quang was sworn in as president in 2016 and served in the largely ceremonial post alongside Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc and secretary-general of the Vietnamese Communist Party, Nguyen Phu Trong, who experts believe wields the bulk of the power in the country's leadership triumvirate. Quang died in a military hospital in Hanoi from a "serious illness despite efforts by domestic and international doctors and professors," according to...

    Some June 2005 reports in the British media portrayed the situation as scientists creating scary zombie dogs, but the reality is actually a hopeful one, abetting life not death. Badly injured people and animals may soon be kept in lengthy and reliable suspended animation until they can be properly treated. For this, scientists at the Safar Center for Resuscitation Research in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania have come up with an improved version of their technique in which animals' blood is drained out and then replaced with a cold salt solution. (This method was used in their experiments at least as early as...

    Governor appoints a new senator Arizona is one of 36 states where a governor makes an appointment to fill a U.S. Senate vacancy, according to the National Conference of State Legislatures. Therefore, Gov. Ducey will appoint an interim senator to fill McCain’s seat. Because McCain was a Republican, state law requires Ducey to appoint a member of the same party — a move that’s critically important for the Trump administration, as the GOP currently holds a bare 51-49 Senate majority. The newly appointed senator would be in office until the next general election in November 2020. The interim senator would...

    Former United Nations Secretary General Kofi Annan died on Saturday at age 80. Annan served as Secretary General between 1997 and 2006. He won the Nobel Peace Prize in 2001. In 2004, after archterrorist Yasser Arafat's death, Annan held a special meeting in the UN. The meeting included a "moment of silence." Responding to his death, Israel's Foreign Ministry called Annan one of the "pillars" of "multilateral diplomacy," and said he "devoted his life to achieving peace, reducing poverty, and fighting child morbidity." During his term, Annan opposed attempts to de-legitimize Israel, as well as attempts to deny the Holocaust....

    A neighbor’s call to 911 started the investigation into the whereabouts of 68-year-old Charles Frary -- or Chuck, as his family knew him. Ten days after that 911 call, Chuck’s own children filed a missing persons report. But the effort to find the missing man dragged on for more than a year in the midst of miscommunication between city agencies and a lack of preparedness to handle what they describe as Denver's worst hoarding case on record. The search for Chuck never extended far from his home. Turns out, it didn’t need to: 383 days after that neighbor’s call for...

Russian military officers told the United States during the incident that Moscow was not involved. The Pentagon has declined to comment...
