The reproductive system of both males and females are specialized in function and that they only work with the specific gender they are given to. While the female reproductive system is more complex as it houses the environment a fertilized egg will grow into, the male reproductive system is in no way a simple one as well. Perhaps, the most visible difference of the male reproductive system to that of the females is that the male have an external protruding structure. This external structure is situated outside of the body and consists of the penis, the testicles, and the scrotum. Read more…
Ross Wiseman, the man who presided over the Newfoundland and Labrador health ministry during the Eastern Health regional authority's infamous cover-up of thousands of breast cancer hormone testing errors, has been removed from his post in Premier Danny Williams's latest cabinet shuffle.
Mr Wiseman will take over as minister of business for Paul Oram, who now becomes the province's new health minister.
Mr Wiseman, who served as parliamantary secretary for health from 2003 until his appointment as minister of health in 2007, was a frequent target of opposition politicians (who seldom let much time pass before renewing calls for his resignation) as well as many of the province's physicians, particularly specialists upset about the government's collective-agreement negotiating tactics over the last two years.
The new minister, Paul Oram (right), began his entrepreneurial career in construction and funeral homes. He's already been accused of having a conflict of interests in his new role as minister of health, because he owns part of two personal care homes in Newfoundland.
This year has seen a great deal of what is sometimes called "ministerial churn" among health ministers across the country. The churn really began late last year when the federal government named a new cabinet after October's election, replacing Tony Clement with Leona Aglukkaq. Since then, there have been health minister changes in New Brunswick (Mike Murphy out, Mary Schryer in), British Columbia (George Abbott out, Kevin Falcon in), Nova Scotia (Karen Casey out, Maureen MacDonald in), and now in Newfoundland and Labrador.
There could be more churn yet. It seemed likely a couple of months ago that Ontario's David Caplan would be on his way out as details emerged about eHealth Ontario consulting contracts that were given without open bidding. Premier Dalton McGuinty has stood by his man so far, however.
