A very sad news:
Mississippi Child Thought Cured Of HIV Shows Signs Of Infection

A baby who generated great excitement last year because it appeared she had been cured of HIV is infected with the virus after all, health officials say. The news from Mississippi generated a lot of optimism. But Dr. Hannah Gay, who had treated the baby at the University of Mississippi Medical Center, remained on the lookout for HIV infection. “Ever since we discovered this case in 2012, we’ve known that was a possibility,” she said in a conference call yesterday.
The baby was not put back on anti-HIV drugs, but doctors kept checking her for signs of infection every six to eight weeks. More than two years elapsed with no sign of the virus."So, last week was one of those regularly scheduled visits," Gay said. "The child came; she had no abnormalities on physical exam." But blood tests showed that the baby had an active HIV infection. The virus had emerged from some mysterious hiding place in her body.

Working on the cutting edge of contemporary fashion, not to mention unafraid of dealing with some difficult questions that sit at the very heart of his practice (fashion is, after all not just about the clothes), young fashion designerMatija Čop is definitely going to prove to be a name to remember in the coming years. Born and raised inCroatia, before turning to the world of fashion, he was a national champion in athletics and a student of Croatian language and literature. Currently a graduate student of fashion design of the Faculty of Textile Technology in Zagreb, Čop combines a conceptual approach with a more intuitive hands-on working method, depending on the nature of each project and what he wants to achieve each time. Less focused on how groundbreaking or provocative his garments could be, instead, he turns his attention to the role fashion (including fashion makers) plays in its wider socio-cultural context.
Today, after spending a few months in Sweden researching an approach to fashion design that seeks to create ”fashion without clothing,” Čop is presently involved in a new project leading him in new directions. Though reluctant to reveal any more detail about his current undertakings, the 27-year-old designer was very generous in answering the following questions for us, thereby offering us a broader look into his work and design philosophy.
