Obits in Brief
Wednesday 09 December 2009
Solange Magnano, who died on 29 November aged 38, was a former Miss Argentina who died from complications after undergoing cosmetic surgery on her buttocks.
Magnano, a mother of eight-year-old twins, died of a pulmonary embolism after three days in critical condition following a gluteoplasty in Buenos Aires. A friend said the procedure involved injections and the liquid "went to her lungs and brain. A woman who had everything lost her life to have a slightly firmer behind."
Born in 1971 in Buenos Aires, Magnano became a model and won the Miss Argentina title in 1994 then went on to found her own modelling agency.
Pat Thompson (Obituary, 8 December) was proud of being Fellow and Tutor of his college, and a member of the republic of scholars, writes Clifford Davies. He had little patience with the gratuitous spread of the title of "Professor" to academics regardless of the post they hold.
