Circumcision 'cuts' HIV infection

From the BBC News website:

http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/health/6176209.stm

Implementation

Dr Kevin De C0ck, director of the HIV/Aids department of the World Health Organization told the BBC the results were a "significant scientific advance" but were not a magic bullet and would never replace existing prevention strategies.
You couldn't make it up!

's called Nominative Determinism - people tend to gravitate towards professions that have something in common with their names.

Very interesting.....so what will I be then? My surname is Parkhurst. I used to be called 'Dartmoor' but who'd want to be called after a prison?

Blimey! Half the expectant teenagers nowadays wouldn't have a clue. Or maybe we'd hear, 'I hereby christen this boy Basildon Bus-Shelter IV'.

Here you go: Nominative Determinism
