President’s Bioethics Panel Weighs in on How U.S. Should Handle Incidental Findings

first_imgJumping into the fray of a controversial topic, the Presidential Commission for the Study of Bioethical Issues released a report this afternoon on how to handle incidental findings, discoveries about an individual’s DNA and other health-related information that show up while hunting for something else. Such potentially problematic findings could include an individual’s risk of certain cancers, her chance of passing on a deadly disease to her children, or a chromosomal abnormality that could cause infertility. Incidental findings have garnered increasing attention and concern of late, especially in genetics, where broad genome scans are turning up unexpected information that no one knows quite what to do with.The bioethics commission, chaired by Amy Gutmann, president of the University of Pennsylvania, argues that physicians, researchers, and companies marketing DNA tests need to reframe how they think about all of this: While of course no one knows what will be buried in a given gene sequence, the fact that ancillary findings may be part of it should hardly be a surprise. Practitioners, the commission argues, should be ready to discuss this possibility with patients or research subjects. Gutmann penned an article in this week’s issue of Science summarizing the rationale behind the recommendations.Sign up for our daily newsletterGet more great content like this delivered right to you!Country *AfghanistanAland IslandsAlbaniaAlgeriaAndorraAngolaAnguillaAntarcticaAntigua and BarbudaArgentinaArmeniaArubaAustraliaAustriaAzerbaijanBahamasBahrainBangladeshBarbadosBelarusBelgiumBelizeBeninBermudaBhutanBolivia, Plurinational State ofBonaire, Sint Eustatius and SabaBosnia and HerzegovinaBotswanaBouvet IslandBrazilBritish Indian Ocean TerritoryBrunei DarussalamBulgariaBurkina FasoBurundiCambodiaCameroonCanadaCape VerdeCayman IslandsCentral African RepublicChadChileChinaChristmas IslandCocos (Keeling) IslandsColombiaComorosCongoCongo, The Democratic Republic of theCook IslandsCosta RicaCote D’IvoireCroatiaCubaCuraçaoCyprusCzech RepublicDenmarkDjiboutiDominicaDominican RepublicEcuadorEgyptEl SalvadorEquatorial GuineaEritreaEstoniaEthiopiaFalkland Islands (Malvinas)Faroe IslandsFijiFinlandFranceFrench GuianaFrench PolynesiaFrench Southern TerritoriesGabonGambiaGeorgiaGermanyGhanaGibraltarGreeceGreenlandGrenadaGuadeloupeGuatemalaGuernseyGuineaGuinea-BissauGuyanaHaitiHeard Island and Mcdonald IslandsHoly See (Vatican City State)HondurasHong KongHungaryIcelandIndiaIndonesiaIran, Islamic Republic ofIraqIrelandIsle of ManIsraelItalyJamaicaJapanJerseyJordanKazakhstanKenyaKiribatiKorea, Democratic People’s Republic ofKorea, Republic ofKuwaitKyrgyzstanLao People’s Democratic RepublicLatviaLebanonLesothoLiberiaLibyan Arab JamahiriyaLiechtensteinLithuaniaLuxembourgMacaoMacedonia, The Former Yugoslav Republic ofMadagascarMalawiMalaysiaMaldivesMaliMaltaMartiniqueMauritaniaMauritiusMayotteMexicoMoldova, Republic ofMonacoMongoliaMontenegroMontserratMoroccoMozambiqueMyanmarNamibiaNauruNepalNetherlandsNew CaledoniaNew ZealandNicaraguaNigerNigeriaNiueNorfolk IslandNorwayOmanPakistanPalestinianPanamaPapua New GuineaParaguayPeruPhilippinesPitcairnPolandPortugalQatarReunionRomaniaRussian FederationRWANDASaint Barthélemy Saint Helena, Ascension and Tristan da CunhaSaint Kitts and NevisSaint LuciaSaint Martin (French part)Saint Pierre and MiquelonSaint Vincent and the GrenadinesSamoaSan MarinoSao Tome and PrincipeSaudi ArabiaSenegalSerbiaSeychellesSierra LeoneSingaporeSint Maarten (Dutch part)SlovakiaSloveniaSolomon IslandsSomaliaSouth AfricaSouth Georgia and the South Sandwich IslandsSouth SudanSpainSri LankaSudanSurinameSvalbard and Jan MayenSwazilandSwedenSwitzerlandSyrian Arab RepublicTaiwanTajikistanTanzania, United Republic ofThailandTimor-LesteTogoTokelauTongaTrinidad and TobagoTunisiaTurkeyTurkmenistanTurks and Caicos IslandsTuvaluUgandaUkraineUnited Arab EmiratesUnited KingdomUnited StatesUruguayUzbekistanVanuatuVenezuela, Bolivarian Republic ofVietnamVirgin Islands, BritishWallis and FutunaWestern SaharaYemenZambiaZimbabweI also wish to receive emails from AAAS/Science and Science advertisers, including information on products, services and special offers which may include but are not limited to news, careers information & upcoming events.Required fields are included by an asterisk(*)The commission left some of the stickiest details to others—which findings to return, for example, and whether biobanks have an obligation to supply incidental findings to the people whose DNA they store and share. In general, the commission recommended that researchers, physicians, and companies describe to potential recipients the findings that might arise; that recipients have a say in whether they get those findings back; and that research continue into incidental findings, to determine how common certain DNA variants, for example, might be in the general population. A full list of the recommendations can be seen here with the full report.The commission did suggest that researchers had the right to exclude from studies people who didn’t want potentially lifesaving findings returned to them and wondered whether researchers have a legal obligation to return certain findings and can be sued if they don’t.The new report is the latest in a growing stack trying to clarify the issue. This spring, a group of geneticists urged labs to actively look for incidental findings, such as certain genes predisposing to breast and ovarian cancer, and return those results whether people want them or not. That’s something the bioethics commission didn’t support. As the science that picks up incidental findings moves rapidly, the policymakers are doing what they can to keep up.last_img read more

Tokyo returns with Summer Games with something new to prove

first_img“And there will be more to come,” Coates said. Typhoon Kammuri accelerates, gains strength en route to PH Read Next This time the Japanese capital wants to remind the rest of the world that China and South Korea haven’t left behind the first economic powerhouse in East Asia. They will use the games to showcase a clean, safe, and innovative city; an urban maze of nightlife, shopping, and dizzying subway lines that give texture to “Cool Japan” and the country’s place as a cultural touchstone.“It’s going to be a good opportunity to showcase Japanese culture, our technology, our products, our good level of service to give impetus to the Japanese economy,” Maki Kobayashi-Terada of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, told The Associated Press.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSWATCH: Drones light up sky in final leg of SEA Games torch runSPORTSLillard, Anthony lead Blazers over ThunderSPORTSMalditas save PH from shutout“It’s exactly soft power … to create economic impact,” Kobayashi-Terada added, a fancy term that means translating an engaging culture into political and economic power.Tokyo has billed itself as a “safe pair of hands” for the Olympics, which is everything that Rio de Janeiro wasn’t. The 2016 Games left behind scandals, millions in unpaid bills, and useless “white elephant” venues. But exactly what’s in it for Japan?Kobayashi-Terada said the Olympics will improve accessibility for the elderly and for people with disabilities, modernize infrastructure and drive tourism. She said Japan had 29 million foreign visitors last year, and hopes to have 40 million in 2020. Tourism is booming, particularly from Asia.The Olympics will also try to convince the world about the safety of Fukushima, where a nuclear reactor was damaged after the 2011 earthquake and tsunami. The prefecture north of Tokyo is a venue for baseball and softball.“There are only some limited villages which are restricted for entry,” Kobayashi-Terada said. “But there are so many other places which are already under recovery. We’d like to show that and thank the world.”But there also hints of scandal.A French-led investigation has been looking into $2 million paid by the Tokyo Olympic bid team — or representatives — to sports officials who have been linked to vote-buying in IOC bid elections. A Japanese investigation concluded the payments were not illegal.“Our committee is different from the bidding committee,” Kobayashi-Terada said. “We believe that we got Tokyo 2020 because our bid was the best one.”And there are domestic doubters.Japan is already a high-tax country that does not need the Olympics to spur building new bridges, trains and highways. Taxpayers have been critical of too much spending on questionable projects.“Tokyo lacks a clear purpose for hosting the games other than city development, and that’s why many people are still puzzled today,” said Yuji Ishizaka, an expert on the Olympics at Japan’s Nara Women’s University. After 2 lopsided losses to Thunder, Durant leads Warriors rout Families in US enclave in north Mexico hold sad Thanksgiving Ishizaka said people are bothered by delays and scandals involving the redevelopment plans for Tokyo’s world-famous Tsukiji fish market and the city’s bay area, where several events will be held.And Ishizaka fears the Olympics “may be used to declare the end to disaster reconstruction” in the Fukushima area, suggesting things are back to normal.“The 2020 Games should be a big festival, but we can’t expect much growth and many people, even residents of Tokyo, will hardly notice the changes that Tokyo has gone through,” Ishizaka said.The IOC and local organizers say they’re cutting costs. John Coates, the IOC member overseeing Tokyo’s plans, said recently that Tokyo had cut $1.4 billion from the price tag. Some venues have been moved to other areas, and existing venues will be used instead of building new ones.Coates lauded Tokyo’s transparency and mentioned Rio.“In Rio we didn’t know who was paying what — if at all,” he said.Tokyo organizers say the games will cost about 1.35 trillion yen ($12.5 billion). However, last month Tokyo Governor Yuriko Koike said the city would spend an added 810 billion yen ($7.5 billion) on “projects directly and indirectly related to the games.”The IOC and organizers argue those expenditures fall “outside the overall games budget.” This is a debate that rages at every games: Exactly what are, and what aren’t, Olympic expenses?Koike said the new costs included building barrier-free facilities for Paralympic athletes, training programs for volunteers, and advertising and tourism plans.That puts the total cost at about $20 billion, 70 percent of which is public money. This figure includes the privately run local organizing committee’s budget of 600 billion yen ($5.5 billion). About $2.91 billion of that is coming from national marketing program that has landed 47 sponsors. AFP official booed out of forum Tokyo also marks a watershed for the battered International Olympic Committee.After corruption dogged the games in Rio, and a doping scandal grew out of the 2014 Winter Games in Sochi, Tokyo should be the first of three return-to-normal Summer Games in first-world metropolises. The IOC has already picked Paris for 2024 and Los Angeles for 2028.And Japan also has hosted two successful Winter Olympics in Nagano and Sapporo.“I don’t think the International Olympic Committee is going to go to a developing city any longer,” Olympic historian David Wallechinsky told The Associated Press. “They don’t want that anymore. They want cities that are ready.”The Pyeongchang Olympics were Wallechinsky’s 18th, and he has researched every Olympics extensively including Tokyo. Those Olympics kicked off when Yoshinori Sakai — born in Hiroshima the day the city was hit by the 1945 atomic bomb — lit the Olympic cauldron.ADVERTISEMENT Don’t miss out on the latest news and information.

Modi lauded the artefacts and products displayed at an

first_imgexhibition of stalls set up by self-help groups of women from all north eastern states and said his government is committed to development of such groups, particularly of women, and his Cabinet has approved a special package fund for these states. “The objective is to accelerate implementation of National Rural Livelihood Mission, so as to cover two-thirds of all rural households in North Eastern States by 2023-24,” he said. Unveiling a plaque for foundation stone of a football stadium here, he hoped it will go a long way towards fulfilling the objective of state governments “Meghalaya Mission Football” that aims at detecting talent at grass-root level and providing support for grooming and nurturing promising children and youngsters as professional footballers. The footback stadium is being constructed at a cost of Rs 38 crore with the help of Union Ministry for Development of North Eastern Region (DONER). With India hosting the Under-17 FIFA World Cup in 2017 and Meghalaya having a number of football clubs and associations, the Prime Minister said, “Perhaps, you can organize competitive local tournaments and lead the way for other parts of country, to build a series of major events leading to Under-17 World Cup.” Modi also recalled names of some big footballers from the region who have earned a big name for their state and country by participating at international levels. “We need to take advantage of this event being held in India and ensure the spread and development of this sport not only in the North Eastern Region, but also in other parts of the country,” he said. The Prime Minister said during his last visit to Gangtok a few months ago, Sikkim was declared as the first Organic state in the country and hoped other NE states took a lead from Sikkim to turn Organic too. “In fact, the North Eastern Region has the potential to become Organic Food Basket of India. This will increase the income of the farmers,” he said. He also highlighted various goverment schemes including PM Mudra Yojana under which collateral free loans are provided to small entrepreneurs and said during 2015-16 more than 3.48 crore entrepreneurs were sanctioned loans of over Rs 1.37 lakh crore, out of which 6 lakh loans were sanctioned in North Eastern states for a value of around Rs 2800 Crore. He also said that to boost industrial activity and employment under North East Region Textile Promotion scheme, one apparel and garment making centre is being set up in each of the eight states at a cost of Rs 145 crores and of the 8 centres, 7 centres have already been completed, each having three units.

Guardiola says racism is everywhere and praises ‘incredible’ Sterling

first_imgShare on Facebook “We have to be better, everyone. Sport is amazing because you live through different people. My kids go to school, with English, black people, [people] from everywhere. Today this happens but we have to defend and protect.”Sterling has explained why he feels it is important to speak publicly about important issues.“I’m about sharing so that stuff that has happened to me could help someone else as well,” he told the Glass Magazine. “There was a time when I tried to hold stuff back but I know now that there is a 15-year-old boy just like Raheem, or a girl just like Raheem, that will go through these things and hopefully hearing these things from me and not keeping it to myself will help.“I’d like to know I could have helped someone else that is going through something similar. Not everyone is the same but I want to help them along their journey, that’s what I want to do. I always think of the kids from the next generation, you know the kids from London or Manchester or wherever they’re from.”On Wednesday City play Hoffenheim in their final Champions League group game in the midst of an injury crisis. David Silva will be out a for “few weeks” and Fernandinho is also injured, along with Danilo. Sergio Agüero, Kevin De Bruyne and Benjamin Mendy remain out and this has left Guardiola with 15 fit players. “Sergio may be back at the weekend,” he said.City need a point to guarantee their passage to the knockout stage as the group winners. They are aiming to bounce back from Saturday’s first league defeat of the season at Chelsea.Guardiola said: “It’s incredible to review the game and how we played considering the huge quality of the opponents. We had an incredible first half except for 18 minutes when there was a little mistake in our movement.“The rest of the game we played with courage. Football is what it is. Sometimes you accept it. We could have avoided the two goals – two mistakes for the first goal and they scored. That can happen when you play against a good team. If you make mistakes against good teams – Champions League teams, Chelsea – always you concede. It’s part of the process and we have to learn.”Leroy Sané has indicated he could soon sign a new contract. “I felt really at home here from day one and of course it is possible,” the Germany forward said. “From the beginning since I arrived here, I am really happy.”City have announced that the 23-year-old goalkeeper Zack Steffen will join in July from Columbus Crew on a four-year contract.

He’s less active than when he was young, more mature, on and off the pitch – he has two kids. I don’t know the reason why. Hopefully the criticism [only] is when he plays shit, he plays bad.“But just for the colour of his skin – believe me that’s ridiculous and that’s why everyone … we have to protect from that situation.“The media, of course [has a responsibility] – everyone and everywhere has.

CBS Reporter Has Update On Potential Kelly Bryant Return To Clemson

(Photo by Streeter Lecka/Getty Images)Earlier this week, Clemson benched quarterback Kelly Bryant in favor of true freshman QB Trevor Lawrence. That decision by Dabo Swinney is under heavy scrutiny on Saturday afternoon after Lawrence left the game with an injury.Bryant could have hopped in as the team’s backup, but the senior decided to announce his transfer rather than sit on the sideline for the remainder of his career. He was afforded that opportunity by the new redshirt rule that allows players to redshirt if they’ve played fewer than four games in a season.With Clemson trailing Syracuse and Trevor Lawrence out of the game, many are calling for Kelly Bryant to come back to the program. But can he?According to Dennis Dodd, the answer is yes.Am told IF Kelly Bryant hasn’t withdrawn and IF he wanted to come back, there is a reinstatement process where he could return to Clemson.— Dennis Dodd (@dennisdoddcbs) September 29, 2018Now the question becomes, would he want to come back?We’ll have to wait and see. Meanwhile, Clemson trails 23-20 with just under nine minutes left in the game.last_img read more

Instead, he gets castled by left-arm spinner Ashley Giles. India are reduced to 145 for 6. They have lost their biggest match winner in Tendulkar for 14 in a mammoth chase of a mammoth 326 at the iconic Lord’s against hosts England.Many television sets were switched off back in the country after Tendulkar’s wicket. “That might be the death for India in this Natwest series final,” the on-air commentator quipped.17 years ago on this day, India let England post a mamoth total of 325 in the final of the tri-series against England. India and England had gotten the better of Sri Lanka to reach the final but for the most part of the final, India were under pressure.England opener Marcus Trescothick hit 109 from just 100 balls and captain Nasser Hussain scored a fine 115 as the hosts took the Indian attack to the cleaners. England played out India spinners Harbhajan Singh and Anil Kumble and took the attack to the bowlers.Captain Sourav Ganguly had a horrible day with the ball as the part-timer conceded 28 runs in 3 overs but there was no stopping Ganguly when he walked out to bat with Virender Sehwag.India were off to a flying start as Sourav Ganguly and Virender Sehwag played T20-style cricket in the first 10 overs and took India past the 100-run mark inside the first 15 overs. However, after the 106-run opening stand was broken by Alex Tudor, India were in a spoit of bother.advertisementFrom 106 for 0, India went to 146 for 5, losing Virender Sehwag, Dinesh Mongia, Rahul Dravid and Sachin Tendulkar in the process.India were in trouble when two of their young guns in Yuvraj Singh and Mohammad Kaif joined hands at the middle.

Mohammad Kaif gave him the perfecet support from the other end. The duo addded 123 runs for the 6th wicket during which television sets were switched on back home. The Indian fans at Lord’s found their voices back. In fact, the decibel levels hit the roof as Yuvraj and Kaif showed for the first time that India was not just about their their powerful top-order.Yuvraj departed for 69 in the 42nd over. India still needed 59 but Kaif batted wonderfully well with the tall and took the team past the finish line. The winning runs came off an overthrow.Ganguly takes off shirt at Lord’s balconyIndian fans erupted in joy. The cameras panned to the Lord’s dressing room where the players celebrated in delight. Sourav Ganguly emerged from behind VVS Laxman, took his shirt off and celebrated the win. He was roaring in delight. It was him who laid the foundation… not just for the chase in the big final but for an Indian team that would go on to become world beaters in the following years.”Everybody says that it’s the most iconic moment. But I wouldn’t do it again. My daughter sees it asks why did you do that and I say, because I was happy. I came from a very conservative and shy Bengali family. It just happened in the heat of the moment,” Ganguly told Barkha Dutt in an interview in 2018.In another episode, former cricket-turned commentator Geoffrey Boycott had called Ganguly a ‘naughty boy’ and demanded an explanation for his act.Here’s the conversation Ganguly had with Boycott in the commentary box.Boycott: “You must mention your experience about taking your jersey off and flying it in the air at the Mecca of Cricket: Lord’s! Ohhh, you naughty boy!”Ganguly: “One of your boys (Andrew Flintoff) also took off his jersey here in Mumbai.”Boycott: “Yeah, but Lord’s is the Mecca of cricket.”Ganguly: “Lord’s is your Mecca, and Wankhede is ours!”Ganguly may regret it but not of the Indian fans would.

MoU Signed to Further Boost Child Protection Services

first_img They include current and former wards of the State; children remanded in government places of safety, pending court decisions; youngsters deemed at risk to be or have been neglected, abused or maltreated by their families; and those on the Programme of Advancement through Health and Education (PATH). Story Highlights The MoU was signed during a ceremony at CPFSA’s head office on Duke Street, Kingston, on November 17. The Ministry of Labour and Social Security and the Child Protection and Family Services Agency (CPFSA) have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to further improve the quality of services offered to vulnerable children and families.The two-year MoU entails the establishment of a referral system that facilitates social interventions for persons who are assessed and determined to be vulnerable.They include current and former wards of the State; children remanded in government places of safety, pending court decisions; youngsters deemed at risk to be or have been neglected, abused or maltreated by their families; and those on the Programme of Advancement through Health and Education (PATH).The MoU was signed during a ceremony at CPFSA’s head office on Duke Street, Kingston, on November 17.Permanent Secretary in the Ministry, Collette Roberts-Risden, said the MoU will support the CPFSA’s delivery of much needed assistance to the target beneficiaries.“What we hope to achieve…is that any child in need of support, we will refer them to the CPFSA and similarly, any child in need of the programmes in our Ministry, the CPFSA will refer them to us,” she said.Meanwhile, CPFSA Chief Executive Officer, Rosalee Gage-Grey, said the partnership will assist in strengthening the family structure.“We can’t treat with children without treating with their families; and we believe that if we give greater support to our families, then the children will be ok. As we seek to build the family structure in our country, we want to ensure that the most vulnerable who we both serve are protected and provided with services in a timely manner. We see this partnership as very valuable,” she said.The CPFSA, formerly the Child Development Agency (CDA), is the entity under the Ministry of Education, Youth and Information that is responsible for enabling a stable and nurturing living environment for children who are in need of care and protection.The Agency was renamed following its merger with the Office of the Children’s Registry earlier this year.This was done as part of the Ministry’s plans to create a more efficient child protection sector with emphasis on the pooling of resources, timely service delivery, and increasing field services staff. The Ministry of Labour and Social Security and the Child Protection and Family Services Agency (CPFSA) have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to further improve the quality of services offered to vulnerable children and families.last_img read more

Avery keeps me going Survivor recalls 10 freezing hours with young daughter

first_imgBOISSEVAIN, Man. – Kristen Hiebert has a tattoo on her arm, written in Arabic, that sums up her outlook since the night she and her young daughter almost froze to death on the side of a rural Manitoba highway.“I lived. I suffered. I changed,” she says, reading it to a visitor.Almost two years after her car crashed, Hiebert is still adapting to life without her lower legs — amputated due to frostbite — and continues to work to build a better life for herself and her daughter Avery, now 6.“Avery keeps me going,” Hiebert says.“I look at my life now and think about when I first got out of the hospital — when I was at my mom’s still. In my mind at that time, there was no possible way I could be living by myself, doing everything I can (now.)”Hiebert, 28, still has a gap in her memory about the night of Jan. 17, 2016. On her way home from checking on her mother’s house in Glenboro, Man., her car went off the highway and down an embankment near a river.It was -20 C and dark. Hiebert doesn’t remember the crash, but clearly recalls coming to at the bottom of the embankment. She had several broken bones, a fracture in her neck and bruised ribs. Every movement brought sharp, deep pain. Waiting to be rescued, she held Avery close to keep her warm.Hours went by. Vehicles passed above. No one came.“I remember cars going by and me thinking, ‘Why can’t they see?’” she says.“I had broken limbs and my feet were frozen … it was so frustrating.”As morning drew close, Hiebert decided to take a chance. She left Avery and tried to crawl up the snowy slope to the guardrail in the hope of being seen by a passing driver. She had doubts she could make it with her broken arms.“Avery is the only reason I fought to get up the hill,” she says. “Without her, I’m sure I would have died down there.”She reached the guardrail, heard her daughter talking below — an encouraging sign — and hoped someone would stop.“I couldn’t raise my arms. I just figured someone might just see me by chance.”It was 10 hours after the crash when Tina Dubyts saw Hiebert and stopped. An ambulance was called. Remarkably, Avery was largely unhurt except for some treatable frostbite on one foot.Hiebert was severely injured. She was airlifted to a Winnipeg hospital, where her legs were removed below the knees and she underwent surgery for her broken bones.She spent two months in hospital and, even now, her recovery is ongoing. She goes to a physiotherapist once a week and travels to Winnipeg for work on her prosthetics about every three weeks. She has gone through six pairs so far and is expecting she may soon need more surgery to her legs.Hiebert is also working with a psychologist who might help revive her memory about the crash.“Truthfully, there are parts of me that want to know but there are bigger parts of me that don’t want to know. I think the hardest part for me is thinking about what my daughter went through.”The community rallied around Hiebert and her daughter. An online fundraising effort raised $90,000. Boissevain residents threw a social that raised $20,000. Service clubs and the RCMP organized other fundraising events.Hiebert, a single mother, worked as a cleaner before the crash. She is looking at going back to college and finding a career that can accommodate her level of mobility.She says she cannot thank people enough for the help she has received. It has allowed her to raise Avery in a bungalow in a nice neighbourhood. Avery is now in Grade 1. Hiebert also has a truck that lets her get around.“Just being able to say thank you to everyone as many times as possible — I’ll take every opportunity to do that,” she says.“Words can’t even express how I feel about what everyone has done for me. Because of them, I have my house … and we’ve been able to live good.”last_img read more

30 injured after severe turbulence hits New Yorkbound flight

first_imgNew York: At least 30 people were injured after a New York-bound flight from Istanbul, Turkey, encountered severe turbulence, the authorities said.The Turkish Airlines flight 001, a Boeing 777 plane, encountered the turbulence about 45 minutes before it landed at 5.35 p.m. on Saturday, according to the authorities at the JFK International Airport here.One flight attendant broke her leg, The New York Times quoted Steve Coleman, a spokesman for the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, as saying.

Number of States joining UNbacked initiative to end use of child soldiers

“Children associated with armed conflict often bear a burden of shame and tremendous stigma,” UN Children’s Fund (UNICEF) Deputy Executive Director Rima Salah said yesterday of the accession of Angola, Armenia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Costa Rica and San Marino to the Paris Commitments, a voluntary initiative adopted in 2007 to help such children successfully reintegrate into their communities.“It is important that all children have access to vital assistance to help them to be rehabilitated and reintegrated, and to lead empowered and productive lives.”During the course of 2010 alone, UNICEF and partners contributed to the release and reintegration of some 10,000 children associated with various armed forces or groups.“Yet one of the most important lessons that is often overlooked is that successful release and reintegration programmes for children are long-term and require early, flexible and sustained funding mechanisms,” UNICEF said in a news release on the new accessions, which were deposited with France’s permanent mission to the UN.“What is required is a relatively small yet critical investment by governments and donors, which is also an investment in peace and stability in the fragile context where this exists.”Many of the children are exposed to sustained violence as witnesses, as direct victims themselves and as forced participants, the agency stressed. The impact on their mental and physical well-being breaches fundamental human rights and represents a grave threat to durable peace and sustainable development, as cycles of violence are perpetuated.Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon’s Special Representative for Children and Armed Conflict Radhika Coomaraswamy stressed the importance of justice for children, particularly during times of conflict.“Justice must also mean reparations to victims,” she said. “For children, justice includes far more than punishing a perpetrator. Equally important is the restoration of their rights and an element of reparation to address their loss of childhood, loss of family, loss of education, and loss of livelihood.” 27 September 2011Five more countries have joined a United Nations-backed list of States committed to release hundreds of thousands of child soldiers and others recruited by armed groups worldwide, end the practice and reintegrate them into society, bringing the total to 100. read more

Most countries in planesearch effort reluctant to discuss costs good training expert

Most countries in plane-search effort reluctant to discuss costs; ‘good training,’ expert says BANGKOK – It’s not a question most governments involved in the hunt for the Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 care to answer: How much has the far-flung, month-long search cost?The U.S. bill alone has run into the millions of dollars, and some countries such as China have devoted more ships and planes to the effort than the Americans have. Australia is spending more than half a million dollars a day on just one of the ships it has in the Indian Ocean.But governments and military experts say it’s difficult to come up with a full estimate for an ongoing search, especially since many of the costs are a normal part of maintaining effective search-and-rescue capabilities.“If I listed how many planes and boats are involved, I could confect a very large number, but it wouldn’t have much meaning, because we’ve got to pay for the boats and the planes and the pilots and the sailors anyway, and they’re out there doing some stuff which is good training and reflects well on us internationally,” said Mark Thomson, senior analyst of defence economics at the government-funded Australian Strategic Policy Institute.More than two dozen countries have played some role in the long search, which Malaysia is overseeing. In the days since the search has shifted to remote areas of the Indian Ocean, several countries have deployed planes and ships for the effort, including China, Australia, Malaysia, the U.S., Britain, New Zealand, Japan and South Korea. On Monday, nine military planes, three civil aircraft and 14 ships were combing a 234,000-square-kilometre (90,000-square-mile) search area, according to Australian officials co-ordinating the search.Malaysia has repeatedly declined to answer questions about the cost of the search.“Nobody, not the Malaysian government, none of our partners, have talked about dollars and cents. It’s all about trying to find the aircraft,” Defence Minister Hishammuddin Hussein said at a press conference last month.The U.S. Department of Defence allocated $4 million to help search for the missing Malaysian jetliner. Between March 8 and March 24, it had spent $3.2 million, said spokesman Col. Steve Warren. As of late last week it had spent another $148,000. The Pentagon has allocated another $3.6 million to cover the cost of a towed pinger locator, used to detect underwater signals from aircraft black boxes, and an underwater autonomous vehicle, which can look for wreckage deep below the ocean surface.Australia’s defence department said its direct cost of using its ship the HMAS Success in the search is about $550,000 per day, and another vessel, the HMAS Toowoomba, costs about $380,000 per day. But it said there are not only direct costs such as fuel, servicing and crew salaries, but indirect costs such as general administration, building costs and depreciation of aircraft assets, so it is difficult to provide an exact total.Several Chinese ships and planes have been involved in the search, but China’s foreign ministry did not respond to questions about the expense of the effort.Geoff Davies, a spokesman for New Zealand’s defence force, said much of his country’s costs will be covered by the existing budget for search and rescue operations, though there are likely to be some extra costs because of the extraordinary nature of the search.Japan’s defence ministry said it could not provide a figure because the search is continuing. The cost of the search operation is believed to fall within the 880 million yen ($8.8 million) budgeted for emergency relief for the Japan International Cooperation Agency. Extra costs incurred by the operation include fuel and a special allowance for the roughly 90 troops involved. Some Japanese civilians are also participating, and the government said their accommodation and transportation has cost about 28 million yen ($280,000) as of the end of March.Accommodation for the Japanese troops is free, as they use facilities at the Australian military under their defenceco-operation agreement.___AP writers Rod McGuirk in Canberra, Australia, Eileen Ng in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, Robert Burns in Washington, Mari Yamaguchi in Tokyo and Nick Perry in Perth, Australia, contributed to this report.

Kin of Mycheal Lynch doubt official report to sue county

first_imgHe’d been told that his son had slipped and fallen in the Clark County Jail. He was told that he was in the intensive care unit, but would be all right. But the second Kim Lynch walked into the hospital room, he knew Mycheal was brain dead.“First your gut’s taken out of you,” the 64-year-old Vancouver man said. “You’re just empty, you’re mad, you’re hurt.”Next came the questions. One rose to the top: What happened?The events that led up to the death of 32-year-old Mycheal Lynch were the subject of a police investigation and a review by prosecutors. The custody officers involved in the jail struggle that left Lynch dead were cleared of any wrongdoing and followed all county policies, officials said.But Lynch’s family believes something went wrong and they’re determined to hold those responsible accountable. They said they want lasting change at the jail so that no one else has to experience their pain.And while the past 2 1/2 years have been mired with anger over Lynch’s death, family members have also been riddled with guilt — because they were the ones who called 911 to have him sent to jail, which they thought was the safest place for him.Life of sun and shadowsWhile Mycheal Lynch enjoyed playing video games and tinkering with his car, his biggest interest was his family.last_img read more

Simone Inzaghi backs brother Filippo at Bologna

first_imgLazio manager Simone Inzaghi believes his brother Filippo can turn things around at Bologna, despite beating his team 2-0 on Boxing Day.Lazio versus Bologna on Wednesday afternoon pitted the two brothers against each other in the dugout, but Simone’s Lazio came out victorious with a 2-0 win.It was the first time the two brothers had faced each other as managers.Bologna is left in the relegation zone after the defeat, but Simeone has faith in his brother to change the club’s fortunes.“I think they’re just missing incidents going their way,” Simone Inzaghi said in his post-match Press conference quoted in Football Italia.Mario BalotelliCorini tells Balotelli to “raise his game” Manuel R. Medina – September 14, 2019 According to the Brescia coach, Mario Balotelli “needs to raise his game if he wants to face Juventus” as his team is set to host Bologna.“I’m convinced that with the attitude of the second half and recent games, Bologna can get out of this.“When you look at both the European race and the relegation battle there’s not much in it. There are teams who are higher up whose season has hinged on an incident.“Look at Sampdoria after [Riccardo] Saponara’s goal against us.”last_img read more
