Transplant - Season 2
Season 2 of the medical drama is currently airing on CTV in Canada and will arrive in the U.S. on NBC on March 6 at 10 p.m. ET. The series was initially acquired by NBC in early 2020 as the coronavirus pandemic delayed a number of U.S. productions. The first season made its U.S. debut in fall 2020 and performed well, ranking as the #2 new drama in the fourth quarter.
Transplant - Season 2
The first season of Canadian medical drama Transplant premiered on NBC in September 2020. Bringing the show to American audiences was partially a way for the network to fill in the COVID-19 shaped gaps in their fall lineup (via Deadline). Regardless, the series proved to be a hit outside of its home country. A second season had already been commissioned by the series' original network, CTV, before it even aired in the US. After delivering solid ratings during its freshman stint on NBC, they decided to follow suit (via The Hollywood Reporter).
According to a report by Deadline, season 2 of Transplant began production in February 2021 and isn't expected to premiere in Canada until later the same year. Given that the first season had its Canadian premiere in February 2020, it appears that the series will be shifted back significantly from its original schedule. What will this mean for its eventual US start date?
Viewers who fell in love with the characters from Transplant's first season will be happy to hear that the core cast is returning for the show's second season. Per CTV's press release, Haq will once again play Dr. Hamed, alongside Laurence Leboeuf as Dr. Mags Leblanc, Ayisha Issa as Dr. June Curtis, Sirena Gulamgaus as Amira Hamed, Jim Watson as Dr. Theo Hunter, and John Hannah as Dr. Jed Bishop, among others.
It's a good thing that season 2 of Transplant is on its way, because season 1 left viewers with many lingering questions. The most immediate is how Dr. Bishop's apparent stroke will affect the staff and patients at York Memorial. The CTV press release teases that the event leaves things "destabilized" at the hospital. The press release also promises the arrival of some new staff to the emergency room, and we're sure they'll be bringing plenty of fresh drama along with them.
Season 2 of Transplant will pick up where the first season left off, with Dr. Hamed (Hamza Haq) and his colleagues trying to figure out what their professional futures look like following the stroke of the chief of medicine Dr. Jed Bishop (John Hannah). Additionally, viewers can expect to see Dr. Hamed continually try to adjust to his new life yet constantly be reminded of his past in Syria.

Like Jimmy Carr, Steve Carell is another comedian who opted for a hair transplant. The restoration took place around 2006, during his role as Michael Scott in The Office US. Eagle-eyed fans noticed a change in his hairline throughout series 1-7, as it became fuller and neater.
The biggest change is the noticeable filling out of the thinning patch that sat at the front of his hairline during the first season of The Office US. A hair transplant can increase hair density, filling out thinner patches and halting the appearance of an ageing hairline, which is why many celebrities opt for a hair transplant.
With any hair transplant (except for artificial hair transplants) it takes time for new hair growth to show. The amount of time needed to see new hair growth depends on the procedure, and whether you use medications like Finasteride and Minoxidil to stimulate hair growth. However, the average amount of time to see new hair growth after a transplant can be anywhere from 6 to 18 months.
In the UK, prices for a 1500 graft hair transplant can start from anywhere between 3,250 and 4,875. Our UK hair transplant cost analysis is helpful when pricing procedures up, and can help you avoid shady clinics.

Perhaps the only upside of America's opioid crisis is that more donor organs have become available. Remarkably, though, kidneys from these cases are frequently declined by transplant candidates whose lives might be saved or greatly improved by

Prior attempts at such transplants -- or xenotransplantation -- have failed largely because patients' bodies rapidly rejected the animal organ. This time, the Maryland surgeons used a heart from a gene-edited pig: Scientists had modified the animal to remove pig genes that trigger the hyper-fast rejection and add human genes to help the body accept the organ.
Bennett survived significantly longer with the gene-edited pig heart than one of the last milestones in xenotransplantation -- when Baby Fae, a dying California infant, lived 21 days with a baboon's heart in 1984.
The need for another source of organs is huge. More than 41,000 transplants were performed in the U.S. last year, a record -- including about 3,800 heart transplants. But more than 106,000 people remain on the national waiting list, thousands die every year before getting an organ and thousands more never even get added to the list, considered too much of a long shot.
The Food and Drug Administration had allowed the dramatic Maryland experiment under "compassionate use" rules for emergency situations. Bennett's doctors said he had heart failure and an irregular heartbeat, plus a history of not complying with medical instructions. He was deemed ineligible for a human heart transplant that requires strict use of immune-suppressing medicines, or the remaining alternative, an implanted heart pump.
But from Bennett's experience, "we have gained invaluable insights learning that the genetically modified pig heart can function well within the human body while the immune system is adequately suppressed," said Dr. Muhammad Mohiuddin, scientific director of the Maryland university's animal-to-human transplant program.
Twice last fall, surgeons at New York University got permission from the families of deceased individuals to temporarily attach a gene-edited pig kidney to blood vessels outside the body and watch them work before ending life support. And surgeons at the University of Alabama at Birmingham went a step further, transplanting a pair of gene-edited pig kidneys into a brain-dead man in a step-by-step rehearsal for an operation they hope to try in living patients possibly later this year.
Pigs have long been used in human medicine, including pig skin grafts and implantation of pig heart valves. But transplanting entire organs is much more complex than using highly processed tissue. The gene-edited pigs used in these experiments were provided by Revivicor, a subsidiary of United Therapeutics, one of several biotech companies in the running to develop suitable pig organs for potential human transplant.
Bill Fitch, who guided the Boston Celtics to one of their championships during a Hall of Fame coaching career spanning three decades, died Feb. 2, 2022. He was 89. A two-time NBA coach of the year, Fitch coached for 25 seasons in the NBA, starting with the expansion Cleveland Cavaliers in 1970. He was Larry Bird's first pro coach with Boston in 1979, won a title with the Celtics in 1981 and spent time with Houston, New Jersey and the Los Angeles Clippers.
Charley Taylor, the Hall of Fame receiver who ended his 13-season career with Washington as the NFL's career receptions leader, died Feb. 19, 2022. He was 80. Taylor was the 1964 NFL rookie of the year and was selected to the Pro Football Hall of Fame's All-1960s Team. The eight-time Pro Bowl selection was a first-team all-NFL pick in 1967.
Chairman Fitzsimons called on Vernon Bevill, Game Bird Program Director, to present proposed changes to the Migratory Game Bird Proclamation, Late Season Species. Key points of the presentation included: 1) Bag and season length for geese in the Western goose zone will remain the same as it was last year, except for the calendar shift; 2) Season length and bag limit for the Eastern goose zone will be the same as last year, accounting for the calendar shift; 3) the light goose conservation period would begin in the Western zone, the day after regular goose season ends, and in the Eastern zone, on January 21, each zone season running through March 31; 4) shift the northeast portion of sandhill crane zone B so boundary matches Eastern goose zone boundary; 5) reduce the amount of closed area in sandhill crane zone C and reduce the bag from 3 birds to 2; 6) duck and coot season will remain the same, accounting for calendar shift; and 7) propose a 25-day, 1 bird bag canvasback season for the last 25-days of the regular duck season statewide. Mr. Bevill noted that staff had very light amount of public comment, and that he and Dr. Gray Graham, Wildlife Division Director conducted a conference call with the Game Bird Advisory Board where the late season proposals were discussed. Mr. Bevill related that the Game Bird Advisory Board was interested in operating the South Zone duck season similar to the North Zone duck season.
Commissioner Ramos asked the rationale for the split duck season. Mr. Bevill explained 1) following a season closure, there is always a spike in duck harvest when the second split reopens, and 2) hunters like the idea of that spike, and also indicate they need a rest between seasons.
Chairman Fitzsimons introduced Hal Osburn, Coastal Fisheries Division Director. Mr. Osburn presented proposed regulations that would establish a closed season for the use of crab traps along the Texas coast as per authority granted by the Legislature under S.B. 1410. These proposals included: 1) establish a 16-day closure beginning February 16, 2002, which would apply to all crab trap users; 2) the first 7 days of the closure, traps would be illegal and could be confiscated by TPW law enforcement officers; 3) the subsequent 9 days, traps would be designated as abandoned and as such are litter whereby any citizen could pick up the traps and dispose of properly. Mr. Osburn noted that staff would solicit volunteers and sponsors to participate in this effort. He also emphasized since this was the first year of this program, staff would report back to the Commission with recommendations for further retrieval efforts. 041b061a72
