NewsHub 14 September 2016Family First Comment: Who do we listen to? Medical professionals or Politicians? Easy – Not politicians! The New Zealand Medical Association has told a parliamentary committee it opposes changing the law to allow voluntary euthanasia.The health committee is gathering evidence in response to a petition asking for a law change.A fortnight ago it heard from supporters of voluntary euthanasia, and on Tuesday it was the turn of those who oppose it.Dr Stephen Child, chair of the NZMAA, told the committee the association represented 5500 medical professionals.“Doctors do everything we possibly can for our patients … but 10 to 15 percent of diagnoses are incorrect, and three percent of diagnoses of cancer are incorrect,” he said.“We’re not always right in diagnosis, and we’re not always right in prognosis.“In principle and in practice, the association does not support a change in the legislation.”Dr Child said doctors believed in pain relief “even if the secondary consequences of that may hasten death … giving morphine to a dying patient is not what we’re talking about here”.The Care Alliance, a coalition of organisations and individuals opposed to voluntary euthanasia, said “assisted suicide” was unnecessary and dangerous.“The right response to suffering is to continue the services for people with terminal illnesses,” said the alliance’s secretary, Matthew Jansen.The Wellington Interfaith Council said all religions opposed the ending of life.Council chairman Khalid Sandhu, a doctor, gave several examples of how his terminally ill patients had died peacefully under palliative care.“We are desperate to stop people committing suicide, while at the same time discussing giving people that choice,” he said.The committee will continue hearing submissions, and then report to parliament.http://www.newshub.co.nz/nznews/dont-change-euthanasia-laws—nz-medical-association-2016091413Keep up with family issues in NZ.

African vultures targeted by poachers headed for extinctionAfrica’s vultures are vanishing, according to a report released on Thursday, a situation that could affect human health and livestock since populations of other scavengers such as rats and jackals could rise as a result.The assessment, carried out by conservation group BirdLife International, found that six of Africa’s 11 vulture species were at risk of extinction.Deliberate targeting by poachers is one of the reasons as the birds, which circle the sights where they feed, can alert authorities to the carcasses of illegally slain animals.Africa’s elephant and rhino populations are being relentlessly poached for their ivory and horns to meet red-hot demand in newly-affluent Asian economies.“Other scavengers like rats and jackals will eat a carcass and then will go after livestock or become a pest to humans. And if vultures are removed their numbers can increase.”said Ross Wanless of BirdLife South Africa.Vultures also help to stem the spread of disease on the world’s poorest continent by eating carcasses that would otherwise rot.Other reasons behind the decline of the big birds include indiscriminate poisonings and the popularity of vulture parts for traditional medicine.Since the late 1980s, 98 percent of West Africa’s vultures outside protected nature areas have disappeared, while half the population of the Gyps vulture species in Kenya’s Masai Mara park have gone, the report said. In South Africa, cape vultures have declined by 60-70 percent over the past 20-30 years.The assessment was conducted for the International Union for Conservation of Nature’s (IUCN) “Red List of Threatened Species”, which is considered to be the most authoritative estimate of wild bird and animal populations.– Reuters
Cristiano Ronaldo agreed a remarkable transfer back to Manchester United in 2013 before Sir Alex Ferguson’s retirement halted those plans. “And to be fair, when I speak with Cristiano, I ask him and he said yes to the boss, and was coming to join United. He told me this.” But as Sir Alex retired, Ronaldo would stay at Madrid with Bale joining him in the Spanish capital, breaking the transfer record in an £85m move. Evra said Ferguson’s retirement was the hardest moment in his career, and revealed the Scot had to apologise to Robin van Persie and Shinji Kagawa for leaving just a season after signing the pair. He said: “When we arrived at Carrington, I see all those cameras and I was like: ‘Wow, someone has done something wrong. Maybe a player is the story again! Someone has done something wrong, we are in trouble.’ “But we arrived and people said, ‘Guys, you have to stay in the dressing room because the boss wants to have a chat’. And when the boss came into the dressing room to talk to everyone, it’s never good news. read also:Here’s how Ronaldo, family returned to Turin with convoy of cars “He came, and he said, ‘I’m really sorry. Some people have said that I’m going to retire even before I say it myself. That’s why you saw all those cameras. But I will retire because my wife needs me’. “He apologised to Van Persie, he apologised to Shinji, because he just brought them. He apologised to them especially.” FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 Loading… Promoted Content7 Ways To Understand Your Girlfriend Better8 Fascinating Facts About CoffeeTop 7 Best Car Manufacturers Of All Time6 Interesting Ways To Make Money With A DroneEveryone Was Stunned To See How Little Anakin Looks TodayThe Best Cars Of All TimeThe Very Last Bitcoin Will Be Mined Around 2140.

Part of Ferguson’s plans to win the Champions League also involved the transfer of Gareth Bale, who at the time was at Tottenham. But then Ferguson – who had just won the Premier League title – was forced to confirm to his players that he would in fact be retiring. And according to Evra, Ronaldo had told him he wanted to return to United before Sir Alex walked away from management. He said on the UTD Podcast: “I remember there was a lot of media saying Ferguson will maybe retire next year, and he said, ‘Patrice, I will never retire. I will be here another 10 years’. “He then said: ‘My target is I’m 99 per cent sure we will have Cristiano Ronaldo and Gareth Bale. I just need these two players to win the Champions League again. Ninety-nine per cent.’

Press Association The former England international denied the Liverpool captain twice, once from the spot, Jordan Henderson, Daniel Agger, Stewart Downing and Fabio Borini. And when Gareth McAuley headed home West Brom’s first effort on target in the 81st minute it set up their first league double over the Reds – having won 3-0 on the opening day of the season – since 1966-67, with substitute Romelu Lukaku’s 90th-minute striking giving the scoreline an unbalanced look. West Brom goalkeeper Ben Foster included a Steven Gerrard penalty among a string of saves which laid the platform for the Baggies to record a 2-0 win over Liverpool, their first league victory since Boxing Day. The visitors appeared more than comfortable in a disappointing first half which saw only Liverpool getting two shots on target. Jonjo Shelvey was given his first league appearance since Boxing Day, playing in the hole as Luis Suarez was restored to the out-and-out striker role but the pair failed to get in the way Sturridge has. The 20-year-old did put the ball in the net early on but was well offside, while Agger had a header tipped over by Foster, who also caught Stewart Downing’s stinging drive at the second attempt. The closest Liverpool actually came to scoring in the first half was when Steven Reid’s attempted left-footed clearance of Shelvey’s low cross cannoned off his standing leg and looped over the crossbar from four yards. Improvements were made by Brendan Rodgers for the second half as Downing had a shot blocked and Gerrard’s follow-up was crowded out before Henderson’s cheeky close-range backheel from Glen Johnson’s pass was stopped by Foster. More work was required and Raheem Sterling and Borini were sent on for Shelvey and the tiring Henderson. Borini was denied by a fully-stretched West Brom goalkeeper after lashing Downing’s lay-off goalwards, McAuley slid in to block Suarez’s shot, and the wrong-footed Foster stuck out a hand to stop Gerrard’s drive. Foster denied Gerrard again moments later from the penalty spot after Suarez tumbled a little easily under Jonas Olsson’s challenge, and Liverpool were made to pay when they were hit with the sucker punch nine minutes from time. Chris Brunt swung over a right-wing corner and McAuley had a free run in the area to power home a header. Liverpool went chasing the game and were exposed even later on when Lukaku, having originally been dropped to the bench, stroked home their second.
Van Zweden is alleged to have insulted Van Gaal following Swansea’s 2-1 victory over United at the Liberty Stadium on Saturday, calling his fellow Dutchman an “arrogant b******”. The remark was reportedly said to a Dutch TV crew which followed wealthy businessman Van Zweden to south Wales for Swansea’s famous win ahead of a documentary which is due to be screened in Holland this week. Swansea chairman Huw Jenkins has now responded to the reports, describing Van Zweden’s supposed remarks as “disappointing” given the good working relationship the club has built up with Barclays Premier League rivals since winning promotion from the Championship in 2011. “It is disappointing that one of our directors has apparently made a statement in the media in relation to a manager of another football club,” Jenkins said. “Our football club prides itself on having a good working relationship with all Premier League clubs, managers and staff. “We feel we have built up that good relationship over a number of years and will continue to work hard to preserve our image within the Premier League and the game in general at all costs. “If any of our directors behave in an inappropriate and unprofessional manner not befitting this football club then they will be dealt with internally and appropriately.” Swansea completed their first-ever league double over United by emulating their 2-1 win at Old Trafford on the opening day of the season with a comeback victory at the Liberty Stadium. And Van Zweden was quick to remind Van Gaal of the result on Twitter by posting a picture of himself indicating the score with his fingers. Van Zweden also added the message: “Dear Louis. Sleep well mate 6 points and The double. @SwansOfficial @ManUtd 2-1 again!!! #easy” Swansea could take internal action against club director John van Zweden over remarks he reportedly made against Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal.

highlights For all the Latest Sports News News, ICC World Cup News, Download News Nation Android and iOS Mobile Apps. New Delhi: Pakistan came into the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 clash against England in Trent Bridge low on confidence. They had lost 11 consecutive completed ODIs and had lost the previous series before the tournament 0-4. In the first match at the same venue, Pakistan was bundled out for 105 against West Indies. However, against England, Pakistan put in a clinical performance in all departments. Mohammad Hafeez was the star, hammering 84 off 62 balls and was backed up by fifties from Sarfaraz Ahmed and Babar Azam as Pakistan notched up their second highest score in the World Cup. Disciplined bowling from the pacers and the spinners helped Sarfaraz’s side register a 14-run win and get their campaign back on track.Hafeez, who won the Man of the Match for his all-round exploits, said there was belief in the team. “Everyone was believing we could do this. We were playing good cricket but not winning the crucial stages of the game. Everyone chipped in today and gave everything which was required to win the game. We needed one winning performance and then everyone contributed accordingly. It was a total team effort. It is a very happy dressing room,” Hafeez said. Pakistan snapped their 11-game losing streak in completed ODIs.England suffered a 14-run loss to Pakistan in Trent Bridge.Pakistan will take on Sri Lanka in their next encounter. Hasan Ali, who has been a vital cog in the Pakistan bowling department, said the backing which coach Mickey Arthur gave and the support of the Pakistan cricket fans in England boosted the morale of the side.“We needed just a little bit of kick and then we will click. We got that kick. We needed the win because we are playing at the World Cup. The World Cup is a different game, you have a lot of pressure. But one thing is very important, which is our coach is always backing us. That moment turned us as everyone was confident. We feel like we are playing at home. Since I came here in 2016 to this 2019 World Cup, it feels like our home because there is a lot of Pakistani community who always come and support us,” he added,” Hasan Ali said.Not to panicMeanwhile, Joe Root, who became the first centurion of the ICC Cricket World Cup, said Pakistan played better and urged the team and the fans not to panic after the loss.“One thing we have to make sure we don’t do is panic and go away from what’s been so successful for us. We probably just left a little too much to do at the end. That’s probably my fault. We’ve been nowhere near our best cricket throughout these two games, so with that still to come we feel like we’re in a good place,” Root said.Pakistan will take on Sri Lanka in their next encounter while England will take on Bangladesh at Cardiff.
More AP NFL: https://apnews.com/NFL and https://twitter.com/AP_NFL,Tampa Bay Lightning advance to face Dallas Stars in Stanley Cup finals, beating New York Islanders 2-1 in OT in Game 6 He pointed to the likes of Austin Ekeler and McCaffrey, running backs whose hands are as fabulous as their feet, and to 49ers wideout Deebo Samuel, who averaged a jaw-dropping 17 yards per carry in the playoffs, including three runs for 53 yards in the Super Bowl.“We saw a skill in Deebo, not only in being a traditional receiver but also just a guy who you want the ball in his hands,” 49ers GM John Lynch said. “I think perhaps part of the trickle up that has come from the colleges and such has opened a lot of people’s minds up to being creative.”Added Jeremiah: “That’s where the value is. And then defensively, you’ve got to find a way to match up with those.”Enter the likes of Chargers safety Derwin James and Clemson’s Simmons, players whose versatility, Jeremiah said, “allows you to keep your guys on the field and not get manipulated where they can sub, get you in a look, crank the tempo, isolate the guy that’s out of position and go at him.”Defenders such as Simmons, LSU’s Patrick Queen, Wisconsin’s Zack Baun and Oklahoma’s Kenneth Murray won’t be labeled as linebackers anymore but as hybrids for their ability to rush the passer, cover the deep ball and mirror tight ends and running backs. Associated Press Share This StoryFacebookTwitteremailPrintLinkedinRedditThe NFL is embracing dexterity for the first time since the 1960s, when expanded rosters and the age of specialization ushered out the last of the great two-way players such as Chuck Bednarik and Les Richter.For much of the last half-century, players who didn’t fit the mold were essentially taunted as “tweeners.” Now, they’re hailed as hybrids.Panthers star running back Christian McCaffrey is handsomely compensated for his versatility, and Clemson star safety Isaiah Simmons is highly coveted for his all-purpose potential. “Twenty-five years ago when I first was in the league, versatility used to mean a corner that could kick return,” Dominik said. “It’s not like that anymore, right? That’s all good, but can the corner move back to the safety in a pinch, or can can he go inside to the nickel, can he handle that? “If you find those players, I think you put a little asterisk on them because they bring so much more to your roster.”___Follow Arnie Melendrez Stapleton on Twitter: http://twitter.com/arniestapleton___ “It allows you to disguise your looks defensively, allows you to confuse quarterbacks and allows you to match up with the athletes you’re going to see,” Jeremiah said. “So those guys have never been more valuable.“And one of the conversations that I’ve had over the last few years and really even more so this year is with the linebackers. It doesn’t matter if you are an unbelievably instinctive player and you’re tough and you’re physical. If you cannot run, they can’t hide you anymore. You’re going to get exposed. At that position you have to lean toward athleticism.”Teams also covet nimble behemoths who can play up and down the line and defensive backs who can play all over the field.“It used to be the 6-4 receiver was always outside and the 5-9 guy always had to be in the slot,” said Mark Dominik, SiriusXM NFL Radio host and former Buccaneers general manager. “Now, coaches are like, ’Let’s put the 6-4 receiver inside at the slot and let’s see if we can find mismatches that way.”The value of the versatile player really hit home for Dominik when McCaffrey, the only player in history with 2,500 yards receiving and rushing in his first three NFL seasons, signed a four-year, $64 million contract. It made him the game’s highest-paid running back “all because of his versatility.” April 18, 2020 NFL following NBA’s lead in blurring traditional positions “Everybody’s looking for people who can play multiple positions or do multiple things,” said long-time talent evaluation expert Gil Brandt, a Pro Football Hall of Famer.Versatility has become its own specialty.“It’s never been more important,” NFL draft analyst Daniel Jeremiah said. Jeremiah sees the NFL following the same path the NBA took over the last decade or so as athleticism and rule changes revolutionized play. That blurred traditional positions and produced a more exciting style of play in which today’s centers are yesterday’s forwards, if not sharp-shooting 7-footers running the floor.“We use the phrase in scouting, we talk about ‘position-less’ players, and that’s where it’s headed, where you’re not going to be labeling these guys anymore as a receiver or running back. No, they’re offensive weapons,” Jeremiah said.
Laura Cueva contributed to this report. USC has enrolled more international students than any other U.S. university since 2001, and this year’s freshman class is the most international in the school’s history.The trend in part represents a growing worldwide interest in U.S. higher education — in 2009 international students made up 3.6 percent of all U.S. college students, up from 2.9 percent in 1989 — and in part is the result of USC’s intense focus on becoming a global university.That focus began with former President Steven B. Sample, who strove to make USC a strong presence in the Pacific Rim and helped form the Association of Pacific Rim Universities. Sample believed having a strong international population on campus could improve the experience for both international and domestic students by bringing different cultures, strengths and viewpoints together. That vision has continued under President C. L. Max Nikias.USC is not alone in its quest to become a more global university, but as the numbers show, it has so far been the most successful. Anthony Bailey, associate provost for global initiatives, attributes this to USC’s generally high place in the rankings, like those done by U.S. News & World Report, the availability of professional programs, and USC’s location in the heart of Los Angeles.Bailey specifically points to the Marshall School of Business and the Viterbi School of Engineering as academic units that draw a lot of international students. According to the Institute of International Education, the most popular fields of study for international students are business and engineering, and not all universities offer undergraduate business or engineering majors.Pei-Hsuan Chu, director of USC’s Taiwan office, added that reputation and the strong alumni network also influence students’ desire to come to USC.USC has also taken a fairly original approach to growing its international presence. The university currently has six international offices — in China, India, Korea, Mexico, Taiwan and Hong Kong— that work to develop academic and research partnerships abroad and interact with current and prospective students from those countries. Bailey said although many universities have learning centers in other countries to support students studying abroad, USC is one of few universities with such robust offices around the globe.The international offices support the efforts of the Admissions Office — which has three full-time officers who recruit internationally — and the graduate schools in recruiting students and helping them learn more about the university. The offices can also help allay the concerns of international students, which typically center on safety and the cost of tuition, as international students are not eligible for need-based financial aid.More critically, however, they help USC develop strong ties around the world, which leads to the continued growth in the international population at USC.“I don’t think the school is saying we want to bring in more international students, it’s that USC has strong roots around the world, in Asia in particular,” Bailey said.As the number of international students grows, some in the education community have raised concerns that many international students do not stay — the criticism is that students are coming to the United States to get an education, but then not using their education to benefit the country.“Most of the graduates from Korea return to Korea,” said Steven Lee, director of USC’s South Korea office. “Career opportunities for these graduates are much better in Korea.”Representatives from the Taiwan and Hong Kong offices echoed this sentiment, saying that especially in recent years, more graduates are returning home to find work. The tough U.S. job market is in part to blame, as well as the complicated process of getting a work visa to stay in the country.Roy Choi, a sophomore majoring in cinema-television production, said he hopes to stay in the United States but noted that it could be complicated by paperwork.Even if international graduates do leave the United States, Bailey said he does not think this is a problem. The goal, he noted, is not just to benefit the United States economically but to support a “cross-pollination of perspectives.”“International students benefit us even when they go home because they’re the ones who help provide global ties and understanding and promote global peace,” Bailey said.USC hopes to continue its quest toward globalization, both by bringing international students to campus and by growing the university’s presence abroad. There are currently plans to open an office in Brazil, and there is talk of offices in Singapore and Beijing, Bailey said. He added that administrators are also discussing the idea of a “global campus,” though the notion has yet to take a concrete form.
