Dutch may allow assisted suicide for those who feel they have ‘completed life’

first_imgThe Telegraph 12 October 2016Family First Comment: No slippery slope? In your dreams!The Dutch government intends to draft a law that would legalise assisted suicide for people who feel they have “completed life”, but are not necessarily terminally ill, it said on Wednesday.The Netherlands was the first country to legalise euthanasia, in 2002, but only for patients who were considered to be suffering unbearable pain with no hope of a cure.In a letter to parliament, the health and justice ministers said details remain to be worked out but that people who “have a well-considered opinion that their life is complete, must, under strict and careful criteria, be allowed to finish that life in a manner dignified for them”.The proposal is likely to provoke critics who say Dutch euthanasia practice has already expanded beyond the borders originally envisioned for it, with “unbearable suffering” not only applying to people with terminal diseases, but also to some with mental illnesses and dementia.The euthanasia policy has widespread backing in Dutch society, and cases have risen by double digits every year for more than a decade as more patients request it and more doctors are willing to carry it out. Euthanasia accounted for 5,516 deaths in the Netherlands in 2015, or 3.9 percent of all deaths nationwide.READ MORE: read more

Loading… Two other family dogs fell ill but pulled through. A source said of Chris and model wife Sam Cooke, 34: “They’re heartbroken.” The couple were tonight trying to work out who would kill their cherished pet. The England footballer and his Page 3 legend wife claim Miley was the victim of a mystery poisoner. They revealed that the cocker ­spaniel-Jack Russell cross was one of three family dogs that fell ill after roaming the grounds of their sprawling home in Rome. They are convinced all three ate rat poison which had been secretly spread on their land. The footballer and wife Sam Cooke have been trying to work out who killed their cherished pet ‘PART OF THE FAMILY’Their other dog, a Hungarian Vizsla called Ruben, and Sam’s mum’s labrador Summer were sick too but managed to pull through. The couple — who are living in the Italian capital while Manchester United defender Chris is playing on loan for Roma — were said to be “devastated” by the death. A source said: “They’re not just dogs, they’re part of the family. “Who knows why the rat poison was put down in that way. There’s no way they’d have let their dogs out if they were aware the substance was there.” In an online post Sam said: “When Miley collapsed the vet found a tumour and put the internal bleeding which led to her death down to that, but it turns out that wasn’t the problem. “A few days later Ruben and my mum’s dog got ill and, although dismissed by vets, we realised that they had all eaten rat poison that had carelessly been put in our garden uncovered without our knowledge. “Obviously Miley being older and smaller was affected the most. “Ruben and Summer are on medication and doing much better and will make a full recovery. It’s an awful situation but we are all coping well and trying to implement the many lessons this sad situation has presented us with. “Acceptance, forgiveness, faith and making the most of life knowing how quickly it can be taken to name a few.” She said she wrote the post to urge other dog owners to be more careful.‘IN MY HEART FOREVER’Sam added: “Big love to all our furry friends and especially Miley who will be in my heart forever.” Dad-of-one Chris was so besotted with Miley he would take her to fancy restaurants — where she would get her own seat — and even flew her out to join him during the Euro 2016 tournament in France. Cocker spaniel-Jack Russell cross Miley was one of three family dogs that fell ill The pampered dog was once pictured in first class on a train from London to Manchester — with a plate of chopped-up sausage in front of her. Posting that snap online, Sam declared: “One spoilt pooch! Have to give it to her though! She’s made me proud in London! Been a dream. “Loved the underground and the London bus! She had a blast on her London holiday.” Miley enjoyed regular grooming, having her coat curled in rollers and had also been pictured accompanying Chris to training and with the couple on holiday. She joined them in Rome after Smalling was loaned from Manchester United and was driven there in a camper-van. After moving into the home last October, Chris said: “I lived in a hotel for a month and we moved into a beautiful house last week. “It’s 700 years old, just outside Rome. It’s surrounded by greenery which is important with our dogs.” The couple’s Instagram accounts are littered with pictures of the pooches. ‘JUST SO LOVING’On December 31, they posted a family picture holding their little boy Leo flanked by the three dogs. Last August, they arranged a professional baby shoot for their son — with Miley alongside him. The couple are staunch vegans, committed to animal welfare. Last year Chris put the boot into dog owners who leave their pets in hot cars.

On a previous visit he said: “I think that dogs are just so loving. “The fact that no matter what kind of day you’ve had, you can come home and they’re always so happy to see you.

2017 Indiana meth lab numbers dive

first_imgIndianapolis, In. — Indiana-The 2017 Methamphetamine Lab Statistics for Indiana has been released. The numbers are encouraging as the total number of Meth Labs seized in Indiana dropped to 371 for the year of 2017. This is a reduction from the number of labs seized in 2016 which was 943 and a large decrease from the number of labs seized in 2015 when it was 1,452. The highest number of Meth Labs seized was in 2013 with 1,808 labs seized.Law enforcement is encouraged about the reduction in the Meth Labs seized but understand that the fight is far from over and total victory over the problem would be zero Meth Labs seized. The reduction in the numbers is a direct result of the combined effort of enforcement, education and rehabilitation by police, the courts, jails and the overall community awareness.Unfortunately, another reason for the reduction is the increased flow of cheap Methamphetamine being funneled into the United States and eventually into Indiana by Latin American Criminal Gangs. The increase in the rise of Heroin use is also a factor and an extremely disturbing fact.The Indiana State Police is committed to continuing the fight with the relentless pursuit of drug dealers and continued education to the public about the dangers of drug use. To continue to win these types of battles in the war, we must continue to have the cooperation from the communities we serve. Please contact the Indiana State Police Post at Sellersburg and report drug activity. You can remain anonymous.last_img read more

Unilorin to commence construction of stadium – Director

Dominic said at an interactive session with newsmen in Ilorin that the university management has concluded plans to embark on the construction. She said the proposed Phase 2 of the stadium complex would be able to accommodate games such as rugby, cricket, hockey, football 5-aside, basketball, 3-aside and swimming pool. The first female sport director of the university appealed to sport enthusiasts and investors to collaborate with the institution in its quest to keep providing world-class facilities. She also said the 2018/2019 Seasonal Sport Awards would hold at the Indoor Hall of the University Stadium Complex on January 31, 2020. According to Dominic, the award is an initiative of the Unilorin Sport Council with the aim of showing appreciation to all the student-athletes. She said it was for those who had won laurels for the university in the last academic session, especially in football, taekwondo, karate, basketball and athletics. Dominic also commended the Kwara State Government on the recently reintroduced State Sport Festival, calling it “reawakening the sport festival in the state”. Recall that the state government had said the re-introduction of sports festival was to bring youths to the limelight and ensure that their talents are identified and nurtured to stardom.— Tags: Olufunmilola DominicUNILORINUnilorin SPort CouncilUniversity of Ilorinlast_img read more

Kinnear confident of being a success

first_img He added: “I’ve been a manager for 35 years. I’ve been Manager of the Year. I’ve won every award there is in football as a player. I think all those qualities put me head and shoulders above every other director of football.” Newcastle have tried the director of football system before with Dennis Wise, whose title was executive director (football), working above then manager Kevin Keegan. It was a move which backfired spectacularly with Keegan eventually walking out and successfully fighting a claim for constructive dismissal. However, Kinnear is convinced he can form a working partnership with manager Alan Pardew and chief scout Graham Carr as the club sets about the task of improving the squad for next season. He said: “Some directors of football have never played the game. I’m lending my experience as a manager for all those years – 10 years at Wimbledon, two years at Nottingham Forest, two years winning promotion at Luton and, of course, almost two years at Newcastle. I would still be there had it [a heart attack] not occurred.” Kinnear was actually in charge at St James’ for a little more than six months before his health problems struck. His first act could be to sanction the departure of utility man James Perch, who is currently the subject of a bid from relegated Wigan. Perch, 27, has emerged as something of a cult figure on Tyneside after a difficult start to his career in a black and white shirt. However, despite the fact that he provides cover across the back four and in a defensive midfield role, it appears that the Magpies could be ready to offload him as they review the current squad. The 66-year-old’s appointment was greeted by a less than favourable response on Tyneside, but having started work in earnest at St James’ Park on Monday, he believes he is more than qualified for the job. He told the Shields Gazette: “Every top club in the land has got one [a director of football]. We haven’t – that’s the difference. The manager can’t do everything. I’m probably the only football manager to be a director of football. I don’t know any other ex-managers who have.” Joe Kinnear insists he is “head and shoulders” above every other director of football in the Barclays Premier League because of his experience.center_img Press Associationlast_img read more

Falcao must prove worth – Van Gaal

first_img “What we do know is that he will play in one of the very best clubs in the world next season, whether that is Manchester United or not.” Van Gaal insists he has no option but to take a hard line stance with the forward, who has suffered from injury problems since his loan move from Monaco. “If I am not like that, maybe he has less motivation,” Van Gaal said. “I have to be like that. It is difficult for the outside world (to understand that).” Van Gaal was clearly irked by a question about how Falcao had responded to being omitted from the squad. “That is not for you, that is not for the media,” Van Gaal said at his weekly press conference. “That is for the player and his manager. I’m sorry.” When asked whether Falcao’s morale was okay, the Dutchman said bluntly: “I think so.” When quizzed on whether Falcao would feature against QPR on Saturday, Van Gaal said: “You have to wait and see, because when I say that a part of my line-up is known I make it easy for my opponent and I don’t want to make it easy.” Falcao’s chances of starting at Loftus Road were strengthened when Robin van Persie hobbled off in the second half of the loss to Saints with an ankle injury. Van Gaal refused to reveal how long Van Persie will be out for, but it seems highly unlikely he will play on Saturday. “I have read in the papers in the Netherlands that he is injured so we shall see,” Van Gaal said. Van Gaal was a little bit more forthcoming when questioned about the possibility of signing players in the January transfer window. United have been linked with moves for Kevin Strootman, Seamus Coleman and Nathaniel Clyne – among others – but according to Van Gaal, there is only a small possibility he will sign anyone this month. “I don’t think that we shall be very active [in the transfer market] as not many players of a certain level are available,” the former Bayern Munich coach said. “When we buy a player he has to be better than the players that are playing now and that is a difficult job.” Press Association United beat a host of top clubs to the loan signing of Falcao on deadline day, but despite his reported wage packet of around £280,000 a week he has scored just three goals in 13 appearances. To the bemusement of many fans, a fully-fit Falcao was left out of the match day squad for last week’s 1-0 defeat against Southampton, with Van Gaal preferring to put 19-year-old James Wilson on the bench instead. Louis van Gaal has told Radamel Falcao he still has to prove his worth at Manchester United even though the club have forked out a considerable amount of money for the striker. Van Gaal was unrepentant on the matter and insists the Colombian must prove he is up to the job if he is to get more game time and if United are to exercise their right to buy the striker for £43.5million. “He has to prove himself, that we have agreed. We have made this deal and everything is clear and it is not the end of the year so he has the chance for that,” the United boss said. “If a player costs £95million or £5,000 it’s not any difference for me. “You have to prove yourself. A player of £95million has to prove himself also.” Van Gaal explained after the defeat that he had room for just one striker on the bench against Saints and opted for Wilson because he was quicker than Falcao. Van Gaal’s move to leave the former Porto striker out of his squad cast fresh doubt on the player’s chances of sealing a permanent transfer to Old Trafford. Earlier this week the player’s agent Jorge Mendes said he had no idea whether his client would remain at the club beyond the end of the season “The truth is, right now we don’t know what will happen,” Mendes said. last_img read more

Rio urges Stones to join United

first_imgRio Ferdinand has urged John Stones to think carefully about his future, suggesting he could become a linchpin in Manchester United’s backline instead of a supporting act for Chelsea. “If he goes to Man United, he plays every week so that’s the right club for him,” Ferdinand is quoted as saying in several national newspapers. “If he goes to Chelsea, he’s not playing every week. He’s at that stage of his development where he wants to play every week. If you say to any young footballer to leave a club to sit on the bench, you’ve got to be a lunatic. You have to be.” The ex-England captain can also see plenty of room for defensive improvements at Old Trafford. “I don’t think (Van Gaal) knows his best defence – that’s a problem in itself,” he said. “Part of the reason he doesn’t know it is because he hasn’t had a chance to watch them all play over a long time – consistently for 12 or 15 games. If you don’t get that familiarity between you as defenders, it’s difficult to build foundations.” Press Associationcenter_img The Everton centre back has been the subject of intense speculation in recent weeks after the Toffees, who insist he is going nowhere, twice rejected big money bids from Chelsea for the 21-year-old. Jose Mourinho is believed to see the former Barnsley defender as a natural successor to John Terry, but Ferdinand says if he leaves Goodison Park he could get regular football at United. last_img read more
