A bill had proposed that those with terminal or life-shortening illnesses should be able to obtain help to end their suffering. But after an emotional debate, MSPs voted by 36 to 82 against the Assisted Suicide (Scotland) Bill.Green MSP Patrick Harvie, who championed the bill, told politicians that the current law was both “inadequate” and “unclear.” He pointed out that a lack of guidance meant people wanting to help those with terminal illness end their life usually had no idea what actions might result in prosecution.“Under the current law, any such circumstance leaves a person asking for or offering such assistance subject to the possibility that they would be prosecuted for murder or for culpable homicide,” he told members, adding: “I think the case for a change in the law is very strong.”MSPs were allowed a free vote “according to their conscience”, rather than on party lines.http://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/politics/right-to-die-scottish-parliament-rejects-attempt-to-legalise-assisted-suicide-10279701.html The Independent 28 May 2015The Scottish Parliament rejected an attempt to legalise assisted suicide following a vote in Holyrood.
“Lahat na areas na may ECQ magpapadala tayo ng tao para mag-augment kasi nagpapatupad tayo ng strict entry and exit inspections sa borders,” said Lucas./PN ILOILO – The Iloilo Police Provincial Office (IPPO) deployed 10 more police personnel to the municipality of Alimodian to help enforce quarantine measures. Six health workers there tested positive for the virus. The ECQ was supposed to end on July 15 but Alonsabe opted to extend it after another 10 persons tested positive for the disease. “We deployed 10 more personnel to Alimodian on July 15 to augment our 38 policemen sent there on June 29. We pulled some of our men from the IPPO headquarters, the Regional Public Safety Battalion and Special Weapons and Tactics,” Lucas said. Lucas said he also deployed 10 cops to the town of Bingawan since it was also placed under ECQ. Twenty-four persons were recently confirmed to have contracted the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) there. Just this June 29, IPPO director Police Colonel Paul Kenneth Lucas deployed 38 police personnel to Alimodian after Mayor Geofree Alonsabe placed his town under an enhanced community quarantine (ECQ). Fourteen rural health workers tested positive for SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19. All the Alimodian COVID-19 patients were being isolated at the town’s quarantine facility.
But Rodgers, speaking at a press conference to preview Tuesday’s Capital One Cup clash at Chelsea, said: “We will give Mario every chance. We brought him in here for this season to give him every chance to show consistently that he can play at a team consistently at the top level. “It has been a difficult period for him – no doubt – but he is a good boy who does want to fight for his opportunity and chance here. “I have seen some clippings this morning (saying) that that is him over with – but that’s not the case at all. “I think (we) have shown here a number of times with players that have been out of the fold, for various reasons, that if they work hard in training, show the intensity and show the focus then they have every chance of getting back in the team – and not only getting back in it but staying in it. “The opportunity is there for Mario, and for every player – not just him.” Should Italy international Balotelli, who has scored just two goals for Liverpool, turn around his fortunes, he could link up in the side with returning star striker Daniel Sturridge. Sturridge is now back in full training after months of injury frustration and could even feature in the second leg of the League Cup semi-final at Stamford Bridge. Sturridge has not played for the Reds since August and his return will be much welcomed, and Rodgers is not focusing on what his presence might just do for Balotelli. Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers has again insisted Mario Balotelli does have a future at Anfield and expects him to fight for his place. He said: “It doesn’t matter what Daniel does coming back. It is irrelevant. “It showed in the Tottenham game that they played well together, but Daniel coming back helps the squad – and that’s everyone.” Sturridge will now be assessed with a view to featuring against his former club Chelsea, but Rodgers will not jeopardise his recovery. He said: “He had his training session with the team yesterday, he trained very well. That was as comfortable as he has looked. “I thought he looked back to normal. We will see how he feels today, but if he is not ready for tomorrow we won’t risk it. “He has been out a long time and we need to make sure that he is ready and feels ready.” Rodgers, meanwhile, dismissed a link with Bolton goalkeeper Adam Bogdan, who frustrated the Reds with a fine performance in Saturday’s goalless draw. He also said he is not anticipating much transfer activity before Monday’s deadline. “I don’t think so,” he said. “I think it will end up being fairly quiet for us. Unless something dramatic happens, we will be as we are.” The striker’s position at the club looks uncertain after he was left out of Saturday’s FA Cup fourth-round tie against Bolton for reasons of form and attitude. Balotelli has failed to make an impact since the Reds gambled £16million on his signing in August, and has been linked with an exit during this month’s transfer window. Press Association
UPDATED: March 1, 2017 at 9:43 p.m.An orange helmet tucked away in Syracuse’s locker room might not seem special. The color and word “orange” is synonymous with the university and all its sports. Except ice hockey helmets, which are navy blue.The old orange cap is a Cascade, which no longer produces hockey gear. The hockey and lacrosse goods manufacturer had sent it to SU head coach Paul Flanagan years ago as a bid for the team’s business. Now, it serves as a punishment.“It’s pretty uncomfortable,” junior forward Stephanie Grossi said. “Pretty large and just not good at all.”The chipped, marine-paint orange face mask is hard to see out of and makes the wearer “cross-eyed,” senior defender Larissa Martyniuk said. The old padding is worn and saturated with the sweat of many scalps past. A zero decal sticks on the back, just above the nape of a player’s neck, ironically detailing why the player must wear the helmet in the first place.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textEvery Thursday at the end of practice, Syracuse (15-12-5, 14-4-2 College Hockey America) holds a shootout competition. The last skater to score becomes the next player to stride out on the ice Friday night with an orange top among a sea of navy blue.The competition started with Erin O’Brien, one of Flanagan’s first assistants at Syracuse. She had brought the idea from previously coaching at Plattsburgh State and originally, the loser wore the helmet for only next Thursday’s practice. Eventually, the competition ebbed.Public shaming seemed a decent way to reinvigorate competition. Now, the last player to beat one of the three goalies in the shootout must wear the orange headgear for the next day’s warm-ups. “This is getting a little stale,” Flanagan told his players, “so we’re gonna raise the bar here.”The punishment goes beyond the helmet. All the members of the loser’s year in school must clean the bus together after road trips. In the past, the helmet wearer had to take a picture with it. Most included a funny face, and the photos went on the wall with its corresponding week.“Like you can hold it,” junior forward Emily Costales said, “or do some funny sh*t with it.”The goalies are neutral in the competition, not worry about the dunce cap—for now. Flanagan mentioned changing the rules, but currently the most difficult decision for goaltenders is how hard to try. Goalie Abbey Miller usually feels torn between tiring herself out with effort or allowing it to finish quickly and getting “lit up.”The usually bipartisan variable also sometimes chooses sides. Two weeks ago, at a practice just before senior night, redshirt junior Brooke Avery and senior Laurence Porlier were the final two scoreless skaters. Miller didn’t want Porlier to have to wear the helmet on her senior night, so the goalie moved mostly out of the way. Porlier still shot it into Miller’s body twice before scoring.“They can cheat for their buddy,” Flanagan said. “I think it happens occasionally, but it’s part of the game.”The players enjoy the shootout, if for different reasons. Grossi tries out new moves. Alysha Burriss goes quick to the five hole. Martyniuk uses only one move: fake a forehand before firing a backhander.But the universal agreement is that no one wants anything to do with the orange Cascade.“I absolutely hated it,” Martyniuk said. “I just dread it.“It’s like the worst thing ever.”CLARIFICATION: In a previous version of this post, the status of Cascade was unclear. The company still exists, but no longer produces hockey equipment. Comments Published on March 1, 2017 at 9:31 pm Contact Andrew: email@example.com | @A_E_Graham Facebook Twitter Google+

Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini says Yaya Toure and Wilfried Bony are feeling the effects of their Africa Cup of Nations exploits.Yaya Toure and Wilfried Bony are struggling with the pace of the Premier League following their Africa Cup of Nations success, according to manager Manuel Pellegrini.The pair helped the Ivory Coast to continental silverware during January and February, with City struggling in Toure’s absence.Bony – who arrived from Swansea City in January – has yet to get off the mark for his new club and Pellegrini feels their AFCON involvement has hampered their recent form.”It was important for [Bony] to start the game from the beginning,” Pellegrini said of the striker’s full debut in Wednesday’s 2-0 win over Leicester City.”He only played a couple of minutes in the last few games and he only just arrived from the African Cup of Nations, where they played a lot of games. “I think Yaya [Toure] is also feeling the pace of the games.”It would have been better for [Bony] to score, but it was more important to start a game, it was also important for him to have some chances and I think he worked very well.”–
