Nofault compensation advisory group disbanded

first_imgTransparency in medical negligence cases could save the health system millions>More than €45m paid out to patients injured in HSE hospitals> A GROUP WHICH was to examine how to help smooth the legal process for families whose children suffer “catastrophic injuries” at birth due to medical negligence will not sit again.The Medical Independent has discovered that a Department of Health advisory group that was to examine “no-fault” compensation for those suffering injuries at birth last met in 2008. The Department of Health has now confirmed to reporter James Fogarty that the group will not meet again.Instead, said a spokesperson, a report is due from that group. It is hoped that reforms recommended will help speed up the process for families. Just last week, 12-year-old Roisin Conroy from Portlaoise was awarded €2.6m for suffering a brain injury at birth – her parents had sued the HSE and a consultant on her behalf.After the award, the family’s solicitor said the case again highlighted that measures were needed to prevent dragging families through years of legal trauma. Roisin’s father Kevin spoke of how his daughter had been denied the care she needed for over a decade as the case played out.The spokesperson added that the Department of Justice and Equality is drafting a “General Scheme of a Civil Liability (Amendment) Bill which would make provision for periodic payments” which would be of particular benefit to cases where someone suffered series injury due to negligence of another.last_img read more

Allegri backs Ronaldo amid controversy

first_imgJuventus boss Max Allegri has backed Cristiano Ronaldo amid recent controversies ahead of their Serie A clash with Udinese.Allegri hailed Ronaldo as a great professional whose ‘dedication to social matters says everything about him.’“He’s fine, he’s a lad I’ve known for three months,” the Coach said at a Press conference when asked about the rape allegations faced by the No 7.“What I can say about him is that in his 15-year career, he’s always shown great professionalism both on and off the field. He’s dedicated and also very much so to social matters, which says it all.“I knew he wouldn’t be called up by Portugal; he reached an agreement with the CT and President of his federation. He has broad shoulders; he’s focused on taking to the field and doing well.”“Douglas Costa is back, but Khedira is out. De Sciglio and Rugani will be assessed. Szczesny will play in goal, but one of Mandzukic, Dybala and Cristiano may miss out.Mario Mandzukic, JuventusJuventus confirm Mario Mandzukic could leave this month Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Sporting director Fabio Paratici confirmed reports that Mario Mandzukic could leave Juventus for a move to an unnamed Qatari team.“Cuadrado’s growing and his assist gave him motivation.

Bees on Notre Dame rooftop survive this weeks devastating fire

first_img“I got a call from the spokesman for Notre Dame who said there were bees flying in and out of the hives which means they are still alive,” Geant told CNN on Friday. “Right after the fire I looked at the drone pictures and saw the hives weren’t burnt but there was no way of knowing if the bees had survived,” Geant added. “Now I know there’s activity, it’s a huge relief.”On Wednesday, Geant posted photos on his Instagram taken by drones that show the hives intact. A visual history of Notre-Dame de Paris Post a comment The bees of Notre Dame seem to have their patron saint Ambrose looking out for them.  Video screenshot by Bonnie Burton/CNET The devastating fire that destroyed part of Paris’ historic Notre Dame Cathedral on Monday appears to have spared the bees living on its rooftop.Since 2013, as part of a city initiative to support biodiversity in Paris, Notre Dame has been home to three beehives on a roof beneath the rose window. Because the hives are located about 30 meters (98 feet) below the main roof, the fire didn’t get close enough to do any damage. Considering each hive is home to 60,000 bees, Notre Dame beekeeper Nicolas Geant was beyond relieved to learn the fire didn’t hurt the insects. Share your voice Another photo posted on his Instagram shows the bees alive and well on one of the Notre Dame gargoyles. The structures  double as functional rain spouts.Perhaps St. Ambrose, the patron saint of bees and beekeepers, was keeping an eye out for the beloved insects of Notre Dame.center_img 0 36 Photos Tags Sci-Tech Culturelast_img read more

Yukon Quest clarifies its rules against dog doping

first_imgThe Yukon Quest is clarifying its rule banning performance enhancing drugs. A press release issued by the Quest last week in light of a positive drug test on dogs in last year’s Iditarod says, “all dog teams are required to be clear of prohibited drugs”.Listen nowQuest rules committee chair Kathleen McGill said that means mushers can face disciplinary action if banned drugs show up in their dogs.“With a sled dog race that runs 1,000 miles, it’s difficult not to put the musher in charge,” McGill said.“Our rules make it pretty clear that unless they can prove otherwise, they’re held responsible,” Quest head veterinarian Christina Hansen said.Hansen says urine samples taken from Quest dogs before, during and after the race between Fairbanks and Whitehorse are screened for a broad spectrum of banned drugs, including Tramadol, a pain reliever that was found in samples take from four dogs in musher Dallas Seavey’s team after last year’s Iditarod.Seavey has denied administering the drug to his dogs, and Iditarod officials have said they couldn’t prove any intent to cheat, raising the possibility of sabotage, a prospect that has been echoed by race icons like Jeff King and Ally Zirkle.In reaction to the incident, the Iditarod board changed its drug rule this fall: removing a requirement that officials prove intent. Now, similar to the Quest, in the case of a dog testing positive for a banned drug, the musher will be presumed guilty unless they can explain otherwise.The Yukon Quest’s McGill said race organizers try to protect dogs from any tampering, especially at check points while mushers are sometimes away from their teams.”We do keep the dog yards separate and control who goes into the dog yard,” McGill said. “So the public just can’t walk into the dog yard at the checkpoints. And we do that with the fence barriers or snow banks. Any reporters have to be escorted, and even handlers aren’t allowed into the dog yard at some of the checkpoints.”McGill admits that’s more complicated during the Quest’s mandatory 36-hour layover in Dawson, during which handlers are put in charge of dog teams at a campground across the Yukon River from town, while mushers rest at hotels in Dawson. She said Quest officials went over rules in the spring and do not plan any changes.last_img read more

Disha Patani finally reveals why she and Tiger Shroff dont speak openly

first_imgTiger Shroff, Disha PataniInstagramThere’s no secret that Tiger Shroff and Disha Patani have been seeing each other for quite a while now but none of them have ever openly confessed about their love for each other. The two have always maintained that they are very good friends and admire each other but it hasn’t been enough for their fans who are eagerly waiting for them to announce their relationship soon.So when a fan on Twitter asked Disha about why she and Tiger have never acknowledged their relationship in public, the Bharat actress replied saying that both of them are shy to express their feelings so nobody’s breaking the ice. She also said that she has been trying to impress Tiger for many years but haven’t succeeded till date.”I’ve been trying for so long, it’s been so many years and I’ve been trying to impress him. Now I’ve done this film Bharat where I’m doing all these stunts and I thought maybe he’ll get impressed but no luck. Yeah, we go to eat but that doesn’t mean he’s impressed, not like that like the crush impressed; but he like’s everybody’s pictures like that. You must speak to him the next time. He’s shy and I’m shy so nobody’s breaking the ice,” Disha Patani was quoted as saying by Bollywood Hungama. Jackie Shroff chooses one — Tiger Shroff or Disha PataniAFP/Getty Images; STR/AFP/Getty ImagesIt’s a known fact that Disha has been a frequent visitor to the Shroff family and often seen spending some quality with them. In fact, Ayesha Shroff and her daughter Krishna have often seen showering her love on Disha on social media and seem to be getting along quite well with her. Jackie Shroff had even gone on record to say that his son has found a girlfriend and he was very happy about it “lekin usko ek tichki diya hai maine.”Similarly, when Tiger was earlier asked about rumours about his relationship with Disha, he said that some amount of speculation is good. His statement hinted that Tiger might be enjoying the kind of attention he and Disha are getting and may want to keep their fans waiting for some more time.last_img read more

Mother Nature Is Very Resilient A Year After Hurricane Harvey Coastal Ecosystems

first_imgCourtesy Texas A&M-Corpus ChristiThe Nueces River near Corpus Christi and the Gulf of Mexico.When Larry McKinney steers his boat around the bays near Corpus Christi, he’s normally able to navigate by sight. But since Hurricane Harvey made landfall a year ago, dumping anywhere from 20 to 50 inches of rainwater along the Texas coast, McKinney’s usual markers aren’t as recognizable.“Some of the islands that you used for landmarks have disappeared or been reconfigured,” said McKinney, executive director of the Harte Research Institute for Gulf of Mexico Studies. “The natural infrastructure has changed, and the system’s adapted to that.”In the year since Harvey, McKinney and his colleagues at the Texas A&M Corpus Christi interdisciplinary institute continue to research how both humans and nature reacted and adapted to the storm. The storm — which caused nearly $125 billion in damage and led to the deaths of an estimated 94 Texans — tore apart human communities. Still, McKinney said, Harvey serves as a reminder of the resiliency of nature and how coastal bays and estuaries have evolved to benefit from seasonal storms.For coastal ecosystems, Harvey offered a welcome and necessary flush of freshwater to bays and estuaries. The rainfall was like stirring up a big pot, McKinney said, freeing sediment and nutrients that had been trapped in riverbeds and letting nutrient-rich waters flow to the coast.“That all washes down into the estuary and provides the very base of the food chain,” McKinney said. “The more nutrients that come in, the better for the estuary. When you have a really massive flood, particularly when there’s been a drought before, you get an overabundance.”In the immediate aftermath of the storm, that overabundance did cause a plankton bloom — or a sudden high concentration of plankton in the ecosystem. As those plankton die, their decomposing bodies use up valuable oxygen in the estuary ecosystem. But now, McKinney said, the nutrients remaining after the plankton bloom are fueling fish and other small creature populations.“Over the years, those [canals] will get a big production of trout, which is great for fishing over the next few years,” McKinney said.Beaches and plant life were also rejuvenated in the aftermath of the storm, said Tom Schmid, CEO of the Texas State Aquarium.McKinney said that when it comes to hurricane recovery, “it’s really interesting how much better the actual marine ecosystem is at recovering than the human side,” McKinney said. “If we didn’t have hurricanes, this coast would look very different. But the system has changed in a way that reflects that.”Courtesy Texas A&M-Corpus ChristiResearchers from the Harte Research Institute for Gulf of Mexico Studies travel by airboat to take water samples of the Nueces River near Corpus Christi.That quick recovery along the Gulf Coast makes sense, McKinney said, and was in line with scientists’ expectations. Maps known as “spaghetti models” that plot the paths of past hurricanes show that tropical storms are frequent in — and affect every part of — the gulf.“Think of our coastal ecosystems,” McKinney said. “It has infrastructure just like our coastal communities. When hurricanes hit and you get flooding canals and houses, the same thing happens to the natural community. It’s just that the natural system is much better than humans at recovering from those impacts and moving on.”But while Harvey’s freshwater rejuvenated ecosystems in the lower coast, the heavy rainfall was too much to handle as the storm traveled — and stayed put — farther up the Coastal Bend.As the hurricane stalled out over Houston, it dumped enough freshwater at once into the Gulf to become toxic. Through models and satellite images, scientists were able to watch the mass of freshwater as it spread more than 100 miles offshore. Even by November, the “blob” of freshwater had yet to be absorbed into the sea.Freshwater is less dense than saltwater, so it floats on the ocean’s surface, McKinney said. A layer of freshwater creates a dead zone, cutting off oxygen from the atmosphere from reaching the saltwater — and marine life — below. While scientists did see some bleached coral and decreased salinity levels near the Flower Garden Banks, a coral reef about 100 miles off the coast, the situation would have been much worse had the fresh water body passed directly over the reef.“The Flower Gardens act like a sentinel,” McKinney said. “They’re so far off that they’re generally unaffected. When something happens to [that coral], then it must really be a serious issue.”Researchers with the institute also received more than $300,000 from the National Science Foundation to continue work on how ecosystems bounced back from the storm. Studies include a look at how Harvey impacted lagoons along the coast, as well as how flooding and fallen trees affected streams and rivers. The two research teams were among 59 across the country given grants to study the immediate impacts of the storm.“Mother Nature is very resilient,” Schmid said. “The barrier islands will always be there. They might shift a little bit, but when we build things on them, that’s where it gets compromised. I think animals have an amazing ability to recover from events like this. We seem to take a little bit longer sometimes.” Sharelast_img read more

I have had it with two partners in my life so far. Is there any problem with me?Name withheld, RajasthanThey say men need a place to have sex, women need a purpose. Female sexuality is complex. At its core is a need for closeness and intimacy. Women also have physical needs. When there is an emotional or physical problem, they can have sexual problems. Lack of interest in sex can also be triggered by family problems, illness or death, financial or job worries, in-law problems, childcare responsibilities, managing a career and children, previous or current physical and/or emotional abuse, past history of sexual abuse, fatigue and depression. Sometimes for women, the inability to become physically aroused during sexual activity often involves insufficient vaginal lubrication. The biggest problem is that most men get sex education from their friends, TV and porn movies. In normal lives, sexuality is far different from how it is portrayed in porn and men fail to understand this! Women are much more interested in romance and relationship than in casual intercourse. Psychological counselling can play an important part, as can coaching in sexual foreplay and stimulation techniques. Have a love or life query you cannot find an answer to?
