Random Pagan Verse:
The Art is sacred: it is the Art of the working of energies, and it must always be taught inside of the Magic Circle. It has been found that teaching the Art frequently leads to a sexual attraction between the teacher and student -- and that this often improves the result.
If for any reason this is not desirable, it should be avoided at the beginning by both persons firmly - and verbally - resolving that their relations will be limited to that of brother and sister, or parent and child. It is for the reason that shared love often increases the result of working magic
that teaching should always be done from man-to-woman and from woman-to-man. When a coven is made up of members of all one sex, the masculine-to-feminine energy exchange should be adhered to whenever possible. Teaching people about the Craft, however, may be done whenever and wherever it is safe,
so long as the teacher is knowledgeable, the student is willing, and the information taught is available publicly or is not a secret of the Art. No-one may charge for teaching, unless it is to cover such expenses as the cost of the room, books or other printed materials, refreshments, and so forth.

Surgeons at Johns Hopkins Medicine in Maryland successfully completed the first U.S. liver and kidney transplants from an HIV positive donor to an HIV positive recipient.

It was the first ever case of a HIV positive liver transplant and the first time in the U.S that an HIV positive kidney has been transplanted. South African doctors have done HIV positive kidney transplants before.

Medical center officials said the organs are working well and that the surgeries saw no complications. One patient has already been discharged and the other is expected to follow him in a matter of days.

According to researchers at the University of Pennsylvania, there are nearly 400 HIV positive people in the U.S. who could donate organs each year, saving potentially over 1,000 people.

The successful transplants come as a result of the 2013 HIV Organ Policy Equity Act, which paved the way for HIV-to-HIV organ transplants.

The United Network for Organ Sharing gave Johns Hopkins the okay in January, once candidates were identified.

?We are very thankful to Congress, the President and the entire transplant community for letting us use organs from HIV-positive patients to save lives instead of throwing them away, as we had to do for so many years,? said Dr. Dorry L. Segev, professor of surgery at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine.

There are around 122,000 people in the U.S. awaiting organ donations.
