Growing number of mentally ill Dutch choosing to be killed at euthanasia clinic

first_imgLifeSiteNews 7 August 2015 A growing number of Dutch patients whom their family doctor is not willing to euthanize, including many who are mentally ill but otherwise healthy, are obtaining “help” at the End-of-Life Clinic that opened its doors in 2012, according to half-year statistics just released by the private organization based in The Hague, Netherlands.In the first six months of 2015, almost as many cancer patients were killed by euthanasia at the hands of the clinic as during the whole of 2014: a total of 49 from January through June 2015, as compared to 53 in 2014.Nineteen psychiatric patients obtained euthanasia from the End-of-Life Clinic from January to June 2015: one more than in the whole of 2014, when 18 psychiatric patients who were not dying or otherwise in bad health obtained death from the Clinic.Compared with national euthanasia statistics – about 5,000 a year in the Netherlands – these numbers may seem insignificant. But they underscore growing pressure on the part of euthanasia activists to make access to “chosen death” more easy to obtain, especially for those patients whose suffering is not associated with intolerable pain or a terminal illness.The End-of-Life Clinic was created three years ago by the Dutch Association for a Chosen End of Life (Nederlandse Vereniging voor een Vrijwillig Levenseinde, NVVE), with a view to catering for patients who fall within the recognized categories for legal euthanasia, but whose doctor is either unable or unwilling to honor their request.The clinic’s offices are in The Hague but euthanasia is provided by 40 mobile teams who are expected to work within the limits of the law, mostly for patients who are in a hopeless situation but not terminally ill, dementia patients, people with psychiatric disorders and elderly people suffering from multiple but non-fatal complaints. They kill patients in the “comfort” of their own homes.The fact that the End-of-Life Clinic can exist in the Netherlands was certainly helped by an ever-widening interpretation of the legal criteria for “careful” euthanasia – inversely, its existence is attracting more and more people to take avail of its services and in turn is causing the legal criteria to widen even more. read more

Phil’s stunner silences Anfield

first_img It still leaves Everton without a victory at Anfield since 1999, but rarely will a point ever have felt so sweet. There was a surprise in the Everton team, with veteran full-back Tony Hibbert making his first league start since December 2012 in place of the injured Seamus Coleman. Midfielder Muhamed Besic made his first league start for the visitors while Liverpool were again without influential striker Daniel Sturridge, who had targeted a return in this game from a thigh injury. The Merseyside derby has not disappointed in recent years, although the red half of the city has had much the better of it. As well as their long drought at Anfield, Everton were looking for a first derby win of any kind in four years. Roberto Martinez was hoping the fact the game was being played exactly 15 years to the day since their last win at Anfield could be a good omen. Both managers saw the match as a potential injection of life into their respective seasons, with Brendan Rodgers looking back to January, when a 4-0 win began a sequence of 37 points from a possible 39. The game started at a frenetic pace and referee Martin Atkinson might have given two penalties and a red card in the opening 10 minutes. Press Association Gareth Barry was booked for a foul on Adam Lallana inside the first minute and the Liverpool fans were baying for blood when he brought down Balotelli, but Atkinson kept his cards in his pocket this time. Everton were the first to appeal for a spot-kick when Alberto Moreno appeared to bring down Romelu Lukaku but Atkinson said no, as he did four minutes later when Raheem Sterling’s shot struck Barry’s arm. The hosts were attacking with verve and lots of pace, keen to get on top of Everton’s leaky defence early on. Following Barry’s second foul, Balotelli drew Tim Howard into a first save with a deflected free-kick, and from the corner the American reacted brilliantly to keep out Lallana’s header. The boyhood Everton fan looked particularly bright, and the space down the flanks created by Everton’s narrow midfield was giving full-backs Moreno and Javier Manquillo plenty of space to attack into. Applying the finishing touch was the problem, though, and Balotelli, Liver bird sculpted into his hair, lacked the necessary conviction on a number of occasions as he sought his first Premier League goal for the Reds. Everton’s attacks were ponderous in comparison, although Leighton Baines did get away down the left and rolled the ball across goal, where it was scrambled clear by Dejan Lovren. The visitors were dealt a blow on the half-hour mark when Kevin Mirallas appeared to pull a hamstring in full flight and was carried off to be replaced by Aiden McGeady. The good news for Everton was the league’s worst defence was holding up well and, when Liverpool did get through, Howard was on form, keeping out shots from Jordan Henderson and Sterling as the half drew to a close. Liverpool were straight on the attack after the break and James McCarthy did superbly to foil Lazar Markovic as he looked to convert a Sterling through ball. On the hour mark the Serbian was taken off to be replaced by Philippe Coutinho, and five minutes later Liverpool finally made the breakthrough. Baines was judged to have brought down Balotelli 22 yards out and, although Howard got a hand to Gerrard’s free-kick, he could not keep it out. Two minutes later it should have been two as Sterling got away down the left before crossing for Balotelli, who hit the top of the bar from six yards. Martinez responded by sending on 20-year-old Tyias Browning for his debut in place of Hibbert, while Samuel Eto’o came on for Besic in a final throw of the dice. Everton piled on the pressure without really looking like finding a leveller until Jagielka’s dramatic intervention, and Barry could even have won it with a late back-heel. Phil Jagielka rifled a shot into the top corner in injury time to earn Everton a dramatic 1-1 draw in the Merseyside derby at Anfield. The hosts looked to have earned what would have been a deserved victory through Steven Gerrard’s 65th-minute free-kick – a record ninth Barclays Premier League goal in the fixture for the Reds captain. But, with 91 minutes on the clock, Jagielka, who had not scored for Everton since April 2013, let fly with an effort that gave Simon Mignolet no chance. last_img read more

Hillary Clinton to speak at cyber defense summit

first_imgThe event is meant to inform executives on cybersecurity, as well as security practitioners on how to “mitigate, detect, and respond to cyber attacks.”Clinton’s narrative will follow a series of appearances in which she attributed her 2016 loss mostly to Russian cyber activities in her email server used to interfere in the election.In May, she said the election was “stolen” from her.“I think it’s also critical to understand that, as I’ve been telling candidates who have come to see me, you can run the best campaign, you can even become the nominee, and you can have the election stolen from you,” said Clinton.That loss, according to her, was also influenced by former FBI Director James Comey’s decision to notify Congress about his agency’s investigation into her email servers.The scandal hungover Clinton’s head through the duration of the campaign, creating doubt of her trustworthiness among her constituents. Former Democratic presidential nominee will serve as a keynote speaker at the Cyber Defense Summit 2019, the cybersecurity company FireEye announced on Thursday.We are pleased to announce that Former U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton will be a featured keynote at our #FireEyeSummit in October!

Football News Adrien Rabiot suspended for a month by Paris Saint-Germain for visiting nightclub

first_imghighlights For all the Latest Sports News News, Football News News, Download News Nation Android and iOS Mobile Apps. Paris: Paris Saint-Germain outcast Adrien Rabiot has been suspended until the end of the month for a reported outing to a nightclub after last week’s Champions League loss to Manchester United. The French international midfielder is in open dispute with PSG and has not played since mid-December after failing to agree a new contract. According to French sports newspaper L’Equipe, Rabiot was punished for a nightclub visit after PSG were knocked out of the Champions League by United. But also for ‘liking’ a video posted on social media by former Man United player Patrice Evra celebrating the win in the stands at the Parc des Princes.  “Adrien Rabiot has received a letter suspending him,” a source told AFP.“I find unacceptable the attitude and lack of professionalism of a player like Adrien Rabiot towards the club, his teammates and the fans,” PSG sporting director Antero Henrique said on RMC Sport, referring to the night out. “Remember up to June 30, 2019 he is part of our squad.” Rabiot told Infosport on Thursday that it wasn’t him “who had chosen this situation. It’s not a choice that I’ve made”.  He added: “I’m available, everything’s fine, I’m in great shape. If I could play…. but the (club) management have decided otherwise.” Asked by Infosport for his feelings after PSG’s latest European failure Rabiot said that it had made him feel “bad”. “I’m still a player at the club despite what they can say. I’m still under contract. I’m behind my teammates, of course it was disappointing.” Relations between Rabiot, who has been strongly linked with a move to Barcelona, and PSG have broken down, with the club ordering him to train with the reserves. In January he appealed to the French League’s legal committee, claiming that PSG’s decision to banish him goes against the “professional footballer’s charter”, with the league finding in his favour.

Other Sports IOA blasts NADA for suspension of National Dope Testing Laboratory

first_imghighlights New Delhi: The Indian Olympic Association on Friday lashed out at the National Anti-Doping Agency for the suspension of the country’s only WADA-accredited laboratory, saying NADA’s “mistakes” have jeopardised the anti-doping programme in India. The World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) suspended the National Dope Testing Laboratory in Delhi for six months “due to non-conformities with the International Standard for Laboratories (ISL)”. The NADA can appeal the suspension in the next 21 days.  The NADA can still carry on with sample collection (blood and urine) but will have to get them tested by a WADA-accredited laboratory outside India. NDTL had got WADA accreditation back in 2008. “We will now have to pay in dollars instead of rupees. My only concern now is who will bear the extra cost?” Indian Olympic Association President Narinder Batra told PTI.  “The National Sports Federations (NSFs) are not in a position to bear the extra cost. And why should we bear the extra cost for NADA’s mistakes?” he asked. The WADA said the suspension came after it’s Laboratory Expert Group (LabEG) initiated disciplinary proceedings with regards to status of WADA-accredited laboratories across the globe.  The IOA chief said a negligent NADA sat on the issue for a long time despite repeated reminders from WADA. “This issue has been going on internally for the last one year. The WADA has been pointing drawbacks in the NDTL’s testing methods but the NADA has failed to manage its affairs,” Batra said.  NADA Director General Navin Agarwal remained unavailable for comments despite repeated attempts to reach him by PTI.
