Human Face Transplant

Here’s a family photo of little nine year old Sandeep Kaur before a grass cutting machine completely amputated her face and scalp. The machine caught one of Sandeep’s braids and then pulled her head in. Sandeep’s mother, who witnessed the accident, said: “I didn’t know where her face was. Everything was peeled off.”

Sandeep Kaur’s face arrived in two pieces at a hospital in India where it was replanted onto her skull 10 years ago. Sandeep arrived at the hospital unconscious with her face in a plastic bag. There’s another photo of Sandeep Kaur after her groundbreaking face replant. Although they didn’t realize it at the time, Sandeep’s doctors were making history. Sandeep’s operation is considered the world’s first full-face replant. It has inspired a team of doctors in Louisville, Ky (very close to where I’m from) to attempt the first human face transplant. They also did the battery charged heart thing.

Sandeep Kaur aged 19, 10 years after the accident that ripped off her face and nearly claimed her life. Today, Sandeep is training to be a nurse.

Get Creative with Green Tea

GREEN TEA LEMONADE

If you like your tea lemony and your drinks lightly sugared, this combo should hit your sweet spot. “It gives you that fresh green flavor, with a hint of lemon — perfect for summer,” says Nelson Drago, owner of the Chado Tea Room in Los Angeles.
Makes about four 1-cup servings

1 tablespoon loose Japanese green tea leaves, available in Asian markets and health-food stores
9 ounces lemonade, sweetened to taste
Sliced fresh lemon or whole strawberries for garnish

Steep tea leaves in 18–20 ounces of barely boiling water for 3 minutes, or longer if you like stronger tea. Pour brewed tea through a strainer into a large carafe or pitcher full of ice. Stir in lemonade. Serve in glasses garnished with the fruit.

MANGO TANGO ICED GREEN TEA

Tropical fruits (mango and pineapple) up the antioxidant ante.
Makes four 1-cup servings

1 1/2 cups chilled green tea (Heiss suggests using 2 tea bags of Stash Premium green tea)
3/4 cup chilled mango puree, sold at Asian markets and in some supermarkets
3/4 cup chilled peach or apple juice
1 cup chilled pineapple juice
1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice

Combine all ingredients, pour into blender (make in batches if necessary), and blend for 2 minutes. Pour over ice and garnish with sprigs of fresh mint.

MATCHA LATTE ICED ENERGY TEA

This recipe hails from Essencha Tea House & Fine Teas in Cincinnati. Part of Zen Buddhist culture for centuries, matcha makes brilliant but bitter green tea. However, matcha latte is “creamy yet crisp,” says Essencha co-owner Tracy Monson. “And it gives you the ultimate energy boost!” Because it’s made from the entire leaf, matcha may be the healthiest of all green teas.
Makes one 1-cup serving

1/2 to 1 teaspoon good-quality matcha, sold at Asian markets
1 tablespoon hot water
1 teaspoon sugar, or to taste
8 ounces milk or soymilk

Place matcha and sugar in a high-sided bowl. Whisk gently until blended. Add enough hot water to make a light paste, whisking until the mixture is free of clumps. Transfer to a cocktail shaker. Add milk and ice and shake well until foamy. Strain, and then drink straight up or over ice.

Outside Kurt Cobain’s Place: Photo Essay

I photographed the bench outside Kurt & Courtney’s place on a walk around my neighborhood. The house is now owned by someone else and has no number on the front. There were a few other people visiting. You can locate the house at 171 Lake Washington Blvd E.
