Mandela's condition still serious but stable

Jun 22 2013, 6:00pm CDT | by

Johannesburg, June 23 (IANS) Anti-apartheid icon and South Africa's first black president Nelson Mandela remains in a serious but stable condition in hospital, the Presidency said.

Johannesburg, June 23 — Anti-apartheid icon and South Africa's first black president Nelson Mandela remains in a serious but stable condition in hospital, the Presidency said.

The announcement came as the ailing 94-year-old Mandela Saturday spent his 14th day in hospital in Pretoria. He was admitted with the serious lung infection June 8, Xinhua reported.

"We thank the public for support and for respecting the privacy of the former president and his family," the Presidency said in a statement.

The Presidency confirmed a media report that the military ambulance transporting Mandela June 8 from his residence in Johannesburg to Pretoria had an engine failure but it was soon replaced by another military ambulance.

"The doctors were satisfied that Mandela suffered no harm during this period," the statement said.

"We appeal again that his privacy be respected and that he be accorded the doctor-patient confidentiality that all patients are entitled to in terms of medical ethics," the Presidency said.

This is the third time that Mandela has been admitted to hospital this year. On March 27, he was hospitalised after doctors diagnosed him with pneumonia.

He was also admitted in December 2012 for his recurring lung infection.

The Youngest Victims: Combating the Social Isolation of Ebola Orphans

Oct 21 2014 11:22am CDT | Source: Politics - The Huffington Post

In 2002, I had the opportunity to meet Nelson Mandela. We were speaking about the phenomenon of social isolation -- a longtime area of focus for me -- and I said, "I can imagine you know a lot about isolation." But to my surprise, Madiba responded, "No." He told me that even on Robben Island, imprisoned for so many years, "We were all brothers working together with a common purpose. ...

# 7 Dispirited Liberal America

Oct 13 2014 1:04pm CDT | Source: Politics - The Huffington Post

Summary: In Liberal America these days, one encounters a good deal of hopelessness about the future of our country. Why the hopelessness? The difficult circumstances certainly play a part. But they are not answer enough. Hopelessness is also a sign of disconnection from the realm of the spirit. In that realm, there is no sense of "impossible." And this disconnection from the spirit is also at the root of Liberal America's weakness. This points to a cure for ...

12 Ways Parents Can Protect Their Kids From Too Many Pills

Oct 2 2014 1:28pm CDT | Source: Politics - The Huffington Post

We are turning our kids into pill poppers. The rate of ADHD has tripled in just 20 years -- it is now diagnosed in 11 percent of all children aged 4-17 and is medicated in 6 percent of them. And the percentages get really crazy for teenage boys -- 20 percent are diagnosed and 10 percent are medicated. There is also compelling evidence that most of this "ADHD" comes from careless diagnosis ...

Fox News Pundit Winds Up On The Terrorist Watch List

Sep 23 2014 3:30pm CDT | Source: Politics - The Huffington Post

The Department Of Homeland Security is known for being somewhat overzealous with its terrorist watch list—Nelson Mandela was infamously on the list as late as 2008, for instance. Hundreds of thousands of people are routinely placed on the list, often for very minimal reasons. On Tuesday, the world got another glimpse into the baffling choices the federal government sometimes makes when conservative writer and Fox News pundit Stephen Hayes revealed that he had been placed on the ...

Hope, Voting and Creating the World You Want to Live In

Sep 16 2014 11:42am CDT | Source: Politics - The Huffington Post

This article originally appeared at TheNation.com We live in a time fraught with bad news. From the toll of violence and poverty to the escalating march of climate change, every week brings temptations to despair. Hope may actually be more beleaguered in the wake of a president who won the office in part by branding himself with it. Many have concluded that political participation has become a futile game. For myself, I deal with potential despair by fin ...

Putin: The Psyche of the Modern Dictator

Sep 5 2014 10:46am CDT | Source: Politics - The Huffington Post

Dictators have always existed. They have taken many forms. We can go back to Rome, to the rise of Julius Caesar; an ancient democratic state that became psychologically convinced it was safer, and easier, to trust the power of a single person over the power of the people collectively. We can look to more modern examples, like Stalin, who took over a state that was already a dictatorship, and used his unwieldy power to oppress and murder an ...
