Health Select Committee: 77% of Submissions Oppose Euthanasia

first_imgMedia Release Care Alliance 5 May 2017 Analysis of 21,277 submissions to the Health Select Committee’s investigation into end of life issues shows that 16,411 opposed the legalisation of euthanasia, while 4,142 supported legalisation.Releasing the analysis today Matthew Jansen, Secretary of the Care Alliance, said “the submissions reflect the depth and breadth of public attitudes about euthanasia. We believe it is the largest number of submissions ever received by a Select Committee and, critically, they were unique rather than ‘postcard’ or ‘form’ submissions.”“We became aware last year that pro-euthanasia advocates were spreading a message that opposing submissions did not meet their standards for length, uniqueness or the use of religious arguments. We thought that was disrespectful to the thousands of New Zealanders who took the time and effort to share their views with Parliament, for and against. So we set to work to find out the facts.”Care Alliance volunteers read every submission to record views on legalising euthanasia, the length of the submission, and whether or not religious arguments were used by the submitter. This work was completed in April, and a random sample from the full analysis was checked by an independent research company. It concluded that “we can say with at least 95% confidence that the overall classification percentages are accurate within no more than 0.4% variation.”The Health Select Committee investigation began in response to a petition presented to Parliament in June 2015.“Quite simply, the Voluntary Euthanasia Society were able to get 8,975 signatures on a petition, but could muster less than half that number in actual submissions,” said Mr Jansen. “By contrast, 16,411 people took the opportunity to say no to euthanasia.”Opposition to euthanasia was dominant across all submission lengths. For example, of the submissions longer than one page, 1,510 submissions opposed euthanasia while 523 supported its legalisation.Mr Jansen added that “While the Care Alliance never argues this issue from a faith perspective, we respect the right of any New Zealander to do so, for or against, if they wish. That is a real and existing right protected by the Bill of Rights Act. In the event, more than 82 percent of submissions opposed to euthanasia contained no reference to religious arguments.”Mr Jansen said that many of the submissions, for and against, contained deeply moving personal stories regarding illness, dying and suicide. “The Select Committee has been provided with incredible testimony. We trust that they will hear that there is much more that needs to be done to improve mental health, disability and end of life services in New Zealand, but that the overwhelming majority of submitters say that euthanasia is not a solution.”ENDSAnalysis of written submissions to Health Select Committee’s investigation into ending one’s life.Background and methodologyWritten submissions to the Select Committee closed on 1 February 2016. They were progressively uploaded to the Parliamentary SelectCommittee (Submissions and Advice) website until 17 August 2016 when it appeared that all the submissions had been posted.On 9 September 2016 a master list of these 21,514 submissions was created from the public website, including links to individual submissions.Duplicate submissions were then removed. It was also found that a small number of submissions could not be coded (broken links, parts ofsubmissions missed during scanning, etc).The final number of public submissions analysed here is 21,277.The Care Alliance organised a small team of volunteers to read through each submission, and code for three characteristics.1. Attitude to legalisation of euthanasia/assisted suicide.• Support | neutral or unclear | oppose2. Length of submission.• 1 or 2 sentences | paragraph | up to a page | more than a page3. Reference to religious arguments.• None | some | mainlyAn independent research company reviewed the coding of 500 submissions and concluded: “Having found no errors in the sample of 500, wecan say with at least 95% confidence that the overall classification percentages are accurate within no more than 0.4% variation.”http://euthanasiadebate.org.nz/wp-content/uploads/2017/05/infographic.pdflast_img read more

UPDATE: First IN vape related death

first_imgOriginal Story—The 2018 Indiana Youth Tobacco Survey showed an increase in vaping of more than 300 percent since 2012, meaning Hoosier teens are now more likely to use vaping devices than cigarettes. There are different kinds of e-cigarettes. But many people use Juul. This e-cigarette looks like a flash drive and can be charged in a laptop’s USB port. It makes less smoke than other e-cigarettes, so some teens use them to vape at home and in school. The Juul’s nicotine levels are similar to a cigarette’s.Researchers are now saying the vitamin e acetate found in the vape oils might be the cause of vaping-related respiratory illnesses.As of Thursday afternoon, there have been 361 confirmed or suspected cases reported by state health departments nationwide. Two people have died, one in Illinois and the other in Oregon.On Thursday, the New York State Department of Health said lab tests showed extremely high levels of vitamin E acetate in nearly all of the analyzed samples of products that contained cannabis.Vitamin E acetate was not found in the nicotine products tested. Statewide—Update:The first vaping-related death in Indiana is being reported by the State Health Department.The person died “due to severe lung injury linked to a history of e-cigarette use or ‘vaping’” according to health officials.The death was confirmed on Thursday and the patient was only identified as being over the age of 18.Indiana is right now investigating 30 cases of severe lung injury linked to vaping, according to ISDH.last_img read more

Live table games now at Indiana Grand and Hoosier Park

first_imgShelbyville, IN—January 1 marked the first day that live table gaming became legal at the casinos in Shelbyville and Anderson. In place of electric tables, you can now play games like blackjack, craps, and roulette with live dealers. The change to live dealers is also helping put Hoosiers to work.Adding table games has created 220 new jobs with the potential to expand and add more tables at both locations in the future.Leaders say the new law now puts Hoosiers Park and Indiana Grand, which are both owned by Caesars Entertainment, on a level playing field by allowing them to operate like the 11 other state-regulated casinos where live dealers were already legal.last_img read more

Wilson drunk on success

first_img Press Association Wilson, who finished runner-up nine times on the European Tour before losing his card, recorded a closing 70 at St Andrews to finish 17 under par, one shot ahead of world number one Rory McIlroy, Tommy Fleetwood and Richie Ramsay. Fleetwood, who was playing alongside Wilson, missed from 10 feet for birdie on the last to force a play-off, while Ramsay was two clear of the field after his eighth birdie of the day on the 15th, only to bogey the 16th and 17th in a closing 67. An emotional Oliver Wilson admitted he could be “drunk for a while” following his win in the Alfred Dunhill Links Championship, after starting the week ranked 792nd in the world. Wilson took a three-shot lead into the final round but saw that wiped out by the time he three-putted the fourth and fifth, the first for a bogey and the second for a par on the par five. Birdies on the 10th and 11th got the 2008 Ryder Cup player back into a tie for the lead and after Ramsay faltered down the stretch, Wilson took advantage with a brilliant approach to within a few feet of the flag on the 16th. ” The shot I hit into 16 was probably the best shot I’ve hit in my life,” said the 34-year-old, who credited the coaching of fellow European Tour professional Robert Rock for his success. Wilson still needed to get up and down from 90 yards short of the 17th to save par and did a far better job than McIlroy managed from much closer to the green, the four-time major winner suffering the embarrassment of putting into the dreaded Road Hole bunker. “I didn’t really leave myself much of a chance there,” McIlroy admitted. “If you’re going to miss it, you need to miss it right there and I didn’t. It was tough. “Where I feel like I cost myself the tournament today was probably in the space of about 20 yards at the front of the green at the first and over at the Road Hole bunker. Not too far away from each other. They are the two things, the only mistakes that I made all day.” McIlroy was reluctant to blame fatigue for his mistakes, but admitted: ” I’m not 100 per cent. My excitement level didn’t get above about three at any point during the round. I’m ready for a break. “(But) I love this golf course. I feel like I play well here every time I tee it up so I am looking forward to coming back here in July and defending the Open Championship.” Fleetwood, who had recorded three top-five finishes in his previous five events, said: “Again I was just that little bit short, which is always disappointing, but I think you have to put in perspective that you just came in second in a huge event. “From where I was starting Saturday morning, it’s an amazing finish (shooting 62 on Saturday at St Andrews) and I think I holed my fair share of putts on the last two days. That one on the last wasn’t a very good putt and that’s just what happens. But fair play to Ollie, he was fantastic.” Ramsay, who three-putted the 17th from just short of the green, added: “I played 17 really well. I hit a great putt and it just horseshoed out on the left and that’s the difference between winning and coming second sometimes. It’s a matter of inches and it was an inch too far left. “I said to one of the guys, if you’re going to lose to someone, you’d like to lose to Ollie. He’s gone through a tough time the last two or three years and to pull that off at St Andrews, under intense pressure knowing what it means to him to put him back on the European Tour, it’s life changing. I just hope one day it will be me in that position.” McIlroy double bogeyed the first after misjudging his approach and seeing his ball spin back into the Swilcan Burn, and although he birdied the next four holes and made two more on the 10th and 12th, his chances ended when he putted into the Road Hole bunker on the 17th. But the likeable Wilson’s win was so popular amongst his fellow professionals that McIlroy summed up the mood by writing on his Twitter account: “Don’t think I could’ve chosen a better person to finish 2nd to this week! Congrats @Oliver_Wilson so well deserved!” Wilson is ranked a lowly 102nd on the Challenge Tour but claimed the first prize of almost £500,000 and a two-year exemption on the European Tour, moving from 2 52nd to 39th on the Race to Dubai. “I don’t have words for it,” Wilson told Sky Sports 4. “It’s been 10, 11 years coming, nine runners-up and I hadn’t done a whole lot (wrong) to lose those but nothing has really gone my way. ” I know so many people had written me off and that hurt, but I just kept believing and a lot of people around me helped. I can’t thank them all enough but they know who they are. It’s pretty special. “I slept awful last night, I thought about a lot of things that this could do for me but to be honest I probably didn’t genuinely believe, then I got on 17 when I holed that putt and started thinking what were the possibilities. “The tournaments that I am now going to be able to get in… I don’t have to go back to qualifying school and I can’t tell you how pleased I am about that. I don’t know all the implications yet but it will be fun to work out. “I could be drunk for a while. It’s been a long time coming. I’ve got a lot of champagne on hold from over the years. It will be a good party.” last_img read more

Amazon in talks to take over some JCPennys and Sears Stores

first_imgInternet retail giant Amazon may begin to take over some department stores that have closed down inside of malls.Amazon is currently in talks with mall giant, the Simon Property Group to convert former and even some current JCPenney and Sears stores into distribution hubs to help deliver packages , according to the Wall Street Journal.Many malls and businesses have been struggling to stay afloat due to the pandemic that is limiting sales and keeping some business closed altogether.Both JCPenney and Sears have filed for bankruptcy and are planning to close hundreds of stores.While Amazon is also struggling, their struggle has more to do with keeping up with customer demand as many shoppers have transitioned into an e-commerce shopping lifestyle.Purchasing the closed stores and turning them into shipping hubs would be beneficial to both Amazon and Simon as Amazon will be closer to their customers which would speed up shipping times, and while Amazon won’t attract foot traffic to the malls, they will help pay the bills.last_img read more

The Latest: California CCAA moving all sports to the spring

first_imgNorth Carolina State says five people tied to Wolfpack sports have tested positive for the new coronavirus.Athletics spokesman Fred Demarest said Thursday those positives came after the school tested 315 athletes, coaches and staff starting May 29. That’s a positive rate of roughly 1.6%.N.C. State athletic director Boo Corrigan had announced in early June that the school had begun a schedule of allowing athletes to return in phases to campus.That plan started with testing of members of the football, men’s basketball and women’s basketball programs who live locally. Athletes who were cleared were then allowed to participate in voluntary workouts in small groups.On Wednesday, rival North Carolina said it was pausing football workouts for at least a week. That came after 37 positive results among 429 tests administered to UNC athletes, coaches and staff as they returned to campus in phases starting in June. The Tigers finished 17th in the country after a loss in the Cotton Bowl and had a game at Purdue scheduled for Sept. 12 cut by the Big Ten’s decision to play only conference games this fall. Athletic director Laird Veatch also will be donating 10% of his salary for six months to Tiger Scholarship Fund and said men’s basketball coach Penny Hardaway, football coach Ryan Silverfield and women’s basketball coach Melissa McFerrin are giving back nearly $200,000 to Memphis athletics. Veach said in a release Thursday that he appreciates the flexibility and sacrifices from his coaches and staff during what he called “arguably never been a more uncertain financial period in our history.”___Real Madrid forward Vinícius Júnior has tested negative for the new coronavirus and has joined the squad for the Spanish league game against Alavés on Friday. ___The plan to have fans at the World Golf Championships event in Memphis has been scrapped.Officials announced Thursday that the FedEx St. Jude Invitational at TPC Southwind will not have any spectators due to what they call “an abundance of caution.” Tournament officials have been talking extensively with both the PGA Tour and local and state health officials. Executive director Darrell Smith says they had a safety plan for limited spectators but ultimately felt it was best to host without any fans. Ticket purchases will be refunded automatically.The PGA Tour and the Memorial announced Monday a reversal of their plan for a limited amount of spectators next week in Dublin, Ohio, because of the COVID-19 pandemic. This means that every PGA Tour event through at least July will be held without fans since play resumed June 11 in Texas. Planning for a season they acknowledge will be “very different,” the Cleveland Browns told their season-ticket holders they can opt out of the 2020 season without penalty and other plans related to the COVID-19 virus and its impact on the NFL.The Browns sent a letter to their fans on Thursday that outlined some new policies due to the pandemic. Anyone attending a game at FirstEnergy Stadium will have to follow physical-distancing guidelines and wear “mandated facial coverings.”The team did not say how many fans will be allowed in the 67,000-seat stadium, which has been the Browns’ lakefront home since 1999.Earlier this week, the Baltimore Ravens said they’ll seat fewer than 14,000 fans at M&T Bank Stadium. The Browns are scheduled to open the season there on Sept. 13. If Cleveland season-ticket holders decide not to attend games in 2020, they can retain their same seat location in 2021.

More than 68,000 people have died from COVID-19 in Brazil, and another 1.7 million are confirmed to have the disease. Associated Press The club kept Reyes away from its training camp after he was spotted on social media attending a Fourth of July get-together. Reyes had to be re-tested for the new coronavirus and cleared by Indians medical personnel before he was allowed to practice.“I really apologize, because I was not protecting myself and my teammates,” Reyes said on a Zoom call from Progressive Field. “I learned from it and it won’t happen again. I really don’t want to stop practicing. I really apologize and I swear it won’t happen again.”This will be his first full season with the Indians, who acquired him last year in a trade with the San Diego Padres.

Chelsea boss denies bust-up with Cole

first_imgChelsea manager Andre Villas-Boas has denied reports of a bust-up with Ashley Cole.The full-back was reported to have clashed with Villas-Boas ahead of Tuesday’s game against Napoli, for which he was left out of the starting line-up along with Frank Lampard and Michael Essien.Cole was said to have told his under-pressure boss that he didn’t feel he could win trophies because of the Portuguese’s tactics.AdChoices广告“It’s not true,” insisted Villas-Boas, who is reported to be planning to offload a number of the club’s senior players in the summer.Asked whether his players backed him, he said: “You don’t expect them to be jumping up and down with excitement when the manager doesn’t use them.Lampard is believed to be wanted by French club Paris St-Germain.“The club is more important than any individual. Full backing, part backing or whatever backing – it doesn’t matter.”Lampard, who has been linked with a move away from Stamford Bridge, is deeply unhappy at being overlooked for much of this season.Like Essien, he had to wait until the 70th minute to be introduced in Naples, where Chelsea’s 3-1 first-leg defeat left their Champions League future hanging in the balance.“In the end it is the decision of the manager and Frank accepts that,” said Villas-Boas.“Of course it is difficult for him. It is a difficult decision to take, but it is always taken in the best interests of the team.“Sometimes whatever you say to players is not enough to convince them your choice is the right one.“I don’t have any regrets about team selection. It was what I felt was completely right. The team was well set up.”Follow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebooklast_img read more

YBG inks partnership with Edison Chouest Offshore Company

first_imgIN what was described as a simple but significant occasion in the development of the game of basketball in Guyana, Edison Chouest Offshore, a United States of America offshore operating company which also operates in Guyana, yesterday morning signalled its commitment to partnering with Youth Basketball Guyana (YBG) for activities in 2020 onwards.The ceremony was held at the company’s Secretariat on Quamina and Carmichael Streets in the presence of Mr Cory Jarreau, Country Manager; Mr Daniel LaFont, Business Development Director and Mr Rayad Boyce, Co-Director of Youth Basketball Guyana (YBG) and media representatives.LaFont, in briefly outlining his company’s involvement, noted that in the USA the company is big into basketball and some of the owners have played the game at high school level, thus creating a huge interest in the game wherever the company operates.He highlighted that coming to Guyana he felt that basketball as a sport hasn’t been given as much attention as cricket and football and saw the need for basketball to be supported since he knows of the benefits and talent he experienced as a player and coach.Hooking up with YBG through an associate of the operations in Guyana, LaFont said that he brought some nets for the Burnham Court after he saw the game is played there and he offered to help with some balls and other equipment in assisting to develop the game at the grassroots in Guyana.Speaking with the directors of YBG, Boyce and Bowman, he committed to an ongoing relationship in the development of YBG as his company will be operating here for a very long time.He emphasised that he truly loved what he saw at the YBG organisation and extended assistance in coaching and other technical areas.YBG Director Boyce, in his response, thanked Edison Chouest Offshore (G-Boat) for the partnership as he highlighted Youth Basketball Guyana’s celebration of its 15th Anniversary in 2020 and the growing amount of schools participating across Guyana.YBG has been responsible for a fair share of the achievement in the national basketball landscape over the last 10 years, developing players such as Akeem Kanhai, Shelroy Thomas, Stanton Rose, Kevon Wiggins, and Jada Mohan among the hundreds of student-athletes, who benefit through the network of tournaments and other developmental programmes year-round.The youth basketball development organisation will soon unveil its calendar of activities for the 15th anniversary celebrations.last_img read more

Liverpool, C-NS football power to season-opening wins

first_imgEarlier in the evening and a few miles down the road at Alibrandi Stadium, it was C-NS making an impressive 2019 debut by earning a 21-0 shutout over Christian Brothers Academy.What was so striking about Liverpool’s effort against F-M was the way all phases of the game worked out following a rough start that included seeing Brayden McClain’s 85-yard punt return for a touchdown in the first quarter called back for an illegal block.With the game still 0-0 in the second period, McClain’s 22-yard punt return set up the Warriors’ first scoring drive. Key runs by Dakari Mack and Bryce Mills set up Mills to find the end zone from two yards out. Tags: C-NSfootballliverpool Having reigned in Section III Class AA football for the last two years, Cicero-North Syracuse is quite aware of the target it presents to all of its rivals – one in particular.Liverpool wants nothing more than to upend the Northstars somewhere in 2019, and will get a chance to do so next Friday night at Bragman Stadium with the “Star Wars Cup” on the line.First, though, the Warriors had to go to the Dome and withstand a serious challenge from Fayetteville-Manilus in Friday night’s Kickoff Classic. Liverpool did so by taking over in the second half on both sides of the ball to defeat the Hornets 21-7. Liverpool’s lead did not hold up until halftime. F-M countered with a mix of runs and passes, the key a fourth-down 17-yard connection from Zak Conley to Jordan Leuze. The pair combined again for a four-yard TD pass less than a minute before intermission.So it was 7-7, but only until the first drive of the second half, when the Warriors started to take over with a 62-yard scoring drive, all on the ground.Behind the blocks of linemen Jake Ronan, Ryan Saffiotti, Nick Reed, Nick Hall and Nate Graser, the Warriors used four different backs, including quarterback Brendan Mancuso, who scrambled 17 yards deep into F-M territory before Mack went one yard for the go-ahead TD.Even more important was what happened in the last minute of the period. F-M, down 14-7, had driven inside the Warriors’ five-yard line, only to have the defense sack Conley on third down and, on fourth-and-goal, see Max Michalak intercept a pass at the goal line and return it 59 yards.More of the Warriors’ ground game followed, and from the Hornets’ six Mancuso rolled out and found the end zone with 8:34 left. Not content with that, Liverpool forced three more turnovers in the closing minutes, including interceptions by Mills and Christian Matthew.Combine all this with special teams that included three successful extra points by Jacob Graser and a series of high punts from Jalen Graham, and Liverpool has a winning formula that just might turn around its recent woes against its neighbors from C-NS.Still, the Northstars seem as formidable as ever, as it showed to a CBA side trying to bounce back this fall after winning just one game in the 2018 season.From start to finish, the C-NS defense smothered the Brothers, keeping things from getting close with a crucial stop inside its own 10-yard line in the last minute of the first half. This gave the offense ample time to find its rhythm with new starters at most of the skill positions.J.J. Razmovski, who is the first player other than Conner Hayes to go under center for C-NS since 2015, threw three touchdown passes – strikes of eight and 40 yards to Matt Wentling-Raymie after a first-quarter 39-yard scoring strike to Adron Pafford.
