Euthanasia law proposed for healthy over-75s who feel their lives are complete

first_imgDutch News 19 July 2020Family First Comment: This is so disturbing. Apparently euthanasia is now a response to depression and mental illness…“Govt research revealed that around 10,000 people over 55 have a serious death wish.” Dutch MP has submitted a long-awaited bill to offer healthy Dutch over-75s the right to ask for euthanasia.Pia Dijkstra, medical ethics lead for D66, promised to go forward with the controversial bill at the end of January, after government research revealed that around 10,000 people over 55 have a serious death wish.But the bill proposal, handed in on Friday, is likely to stoke conflict in the government because the two Christian parties in the coalition are radically opposed to it.Free voteAlthough the right to choose death is supported in theory by Mark Rutte’s VVD, and a previous attempt at legislation in 2016 also had the support of the PvdA labour party and GroenLinks, it is unclear whether Dijkstra’s bill would win over the majority of MPs – which it would need, as it would be a free vote.Her proposed law would mean healthy over-75s with a strong death wish for at least two months could have the assistance of an ‘end-of-life supervisor’ to die. But opponents of the law – including the KNMG Royal Dutch Medical Association – believe it could undermine the strict due care conditions of the existing euthanasia law, arguing that lonely and impoverished older people should have help, not the choice of an early death.Benjamin Meijer, a spokesman for D66, told that his party had agreed with the coalition to wait for the publication of research into the group of older people who want help to die, and was then busy with the joint effort against the coronavirus.READ MORE: read more

Want To Be A Volunteer Coach?

first_imgWho makes a good volunteer?  People who have played a particular sport and still have interest in it are the people athletic directors are need.  In order to become a volunteer, there are several steps you must be willing to go through.  You will have to pass some form of a background check.  If you are not known by the school system, this could be extensive.  In Indiana, as in most states, you must pass certain certifications in order to coach.  These include such things as concussion protocol, sportsmanship, and first aid knowledge.  They are not difficult, and they can be done on line. However, they take time.It is so much better for the athletes if the people working with them want to coach, have knowledge of the sport, and are not looking to make money.  Anyone who has coached can tell you stories about people who were handed a coaching position just to up their salary.  I know one in the past who coached his cross country team at the conference meet by sitting in the car and listening to the Reds baseball game.  Nobody needs that type of coach.Finally, if you have the time to volunteer with the job you have, or if you are retired and still like to coach, contact your local AD and see what is available.  I would be willing to bet that every school needs someone.last_img read more

Football News Real Madrid secure 1-1 draw against Leganes, remain 13 points adrift of FC Barcelona

first_img For all the Latest Sports News News, Football News News, Download News Nation Android and iOS Mobile Apps. Madrid: Real Madrid took the Monday night slot reserved for La Liga’s lower teams and never really looked out of place as Karim Benzema’s goal was enough only for a 1-1 draw away to Leganes. Madrid delivered another thoroughly underwhelming performance at Butarque to remain 13 points adrift of Barcelona, with Zinedine Zidane’s second reign as a coach now delivering three wins, one defeat and a draw. Leganes might even have won it after Jonathan Silva gave them the lead shortly before half-time and while Benzema scored his 26th goal of the season, Madrid never looked like finding a winner.     “It looks like we do not have much confidence,” Zidane said. “We have to give a little bit more.” Instead, they sit four points behind Atletico Madrid and finishing second, and above their city rivals, appears unlikely. Leganes climb to 11th.     Zidane was asked last month about the humiliation of playing on a Monday night, the time typically reserved for La Liga’s sides not involved in European competitions and so unpopular that it will be abolished next season.RELATED     It meant as Barcelona were preparing to face Manchester United in the Champions League quarter-finals on Tuesday, Real Madrid stepped out looking to salvage only pride and, perhaps, momentum ahead of what most expect to be a busy summer.     Most of Zidane’s press conferences have so far been dominated by questions about his players’ futures and on this evidence, few will be feeling secure.     Benzema has been, by a distance, Madrid’s most consistent player this season and he showed again why Zidane has already said the striker will stay.      Gareth Bale, meanwhile, was left on the bench for the second time in three matches, with his prospects looking ever-more bleak.     “Today I wanted to make a change,” Zidane said. “It is done.” Chances were few and far between in the first half but Madrid could twice have taken the lead as Marco Asensio scuffed his finish after being put through by Isco and Raphael Varane’s shot was blocked after a goalline scramble.     Leganes, though, were otherwise rarely made to feel uncomfortable and shortly before half-time, they took the lead.      Madrid failed to clear, instead allowing Martin Braithwaite to roll back to Silva, who guided the ball into the corner.     Zidane strode down the tunnel at half-time and his team emerged with greater purpose afterward, with Benzema finding an equaliser six minutes in.     Casemiro threaded a neat ball through to Luka Modric, who twisted and set free Benzema. His first shot was pushed out by Pichu Cuellar but only back to Benzema, who fired in the rebound. Silva headed straight at Navas and Youssef En-Nesyri had a goal correctly ruled out for offside late on. Neither side really deserved a winner. highlightscenter_img Leganes moved to 11th spot in the La Liga points table.Zinedine Zidane’s second reign as a coach has three wins, one defeat and a draw.Karim Benzema continued his consistency for Real Madrid.last_img read more

Real Sociedad had said it would give its players the option to start training individually at the team’s training center beginning on Tuesday. It would be the first Spanish club to return to practice during the pandemic.Spain is starting to loosen some of its lockdown measures this week by allowing non-essential workers to return to their activities while observing social-distancing guidelines.

This was a difficult decision for our league but a necessary measure to ensure the safety of all parties.” The league debuted last year with six teams traveling to different cities to play weekend games.

Fast reaction: 3 takeaways from Syracuse’s victory over No. 18 UConn

first_img Published on November 26, 2015 at 5:45 pm Facebook Twitter Google+ PARADISE ISLAND, Bahamas — Syracuse renewed it’s Big East rivalry with Connecticut in style, defeating the No. 18 Huskies, 79-76, in the semifinals of the Battle 4 Atlantis at the Imperial Arena.Here are three quick observations from the game.Why you Lydon? A day after recording six blocks and 18 points on 7-of-10 shooting, big man Tyler Lydon was up to the same old tricks. The freshman entered the game fewer than two minutes in while Malachi Richardson got an earful from Jim Boeheim after getting called for a charge.His first shot — a 3 from the left wing — rattled around the rim and through to cut the UConn lead in half. When he got the ball inside the arc and the Orange down 2, he paused for a moment, looking to pass. Someone shouted “Shoot” at the same moment that Lydon realized he was open enough to tie the game for the first time.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textHe found himself in the middle of a second-half, game-changing run when he pulled up and hit a long 3-pointer just moments after attempting a forced fadeaway jumper with time on the shot clock. It tied the game at 44. Just more than two minutes later, SU had a 7-point lead it wouldn’t give up.He finished with 16 points and 12 rebounds.Bombs awayOn Wednesday, Boeheim said if Syracuse can shoot like it did in its win over Charlotte, the Orange would beat a lot of teams. On Thursday, SU was only 4-of-11 in the first half. But much like the win against the 49ers, Syracuse relied on its timely outside shooting to distance itself from UConn.After Lydon’s long-range jumper, Richardson hit a fadeaway from the corner. On the next possession, Michael Gbinije was able to get his feet set and put the Orange up by 3 with a long-range shot of his own.When Rodney Purvis’ shot cut the Syracuse lead down to five, Trevor Cooney took only a couple seconds to respond.Syracuse hit 9-of-20 from long range.Cleaning upIn a game that featured balance on the offense with five Syracuse players scoring at least 13 points, the Orange’s rebounding was also spread out among key contributors. Four players recorded at least six rebounds, which out-rebounded the Huskies 41-33. Just a night before, UConn had recorded 11 more boards than Michigan.Lydon had his best day on the glass with 12 boards, and Tyler Roberson had four on the offensive end alone. After Cooney missed a long 3-pointer, Roberson rose up and had his biggest board of the game. The clock ticked away after he passed it to Richardson for the Orange to complete its upset of Connecticut. Commentslast_img read more

LA Clippers hit bump on the road, lose Game 3 at Portland

first_imgThe Clippers led 85-81 with 3:51 to play before Portland went on an 8-0 run to lead 89-85. Lillard and McCollum a combined 22 of 67 (32.8 percent) shooting in first two games. Lillard shot 10 of 20 and scored 32 points, McCollum shot 11 of 22 and scored 27.Paul led the Clippers with 26 points and nine assists.

Redick, playing with a sore left heel, had just five points on 2-of-10 shooting.The Clippers shot 40.9 percent.For Portland, center Mason Plumlee scored just six points, but he pulled down 21 rebounds and doled out nine assists. PORTLAND >> Portland went 28-13 at home during the regular season. The Clippers were 24-17 on the road. Logic says the Clippers figured to have a more difficult time against the Trail Blazers when they squared off Saturday in Game 3 of their first-round playoff series Saturday night at Moda Center.The Clippers won Games 1 and 2 at Staples Center.“I know these guys are going to be a lot more comfortable here at home,” Clippers guard Chris Paul said at the morning shootaround. “And we’ve just gotta continue trying to make it tough for them.”The Clippers made life miserable for Portland guards Damian Lillard and C.J. McCollum in the first two games. They were significantly better Saturday and they were the difference as the Trail Blazers defeated the Clippers 96-88 before a roaring home crowd of 19,761. The Clippers lead the series 2-1 with Game 4 Monday, again at Moda Center. The Trail Blazers bolted to a 17-10 lead, but the Clippers embarked on a 9-0 run culminated by a 3-pointer from Chris Paul and dunk by Jordan for a 19-17 Clippers lead.Undaunted, the Trail Blazers scored the final five points of the quarter, the last three on a 3-pointer by McCollum with 1.2 seconds left for a 22-19 Portland advantage.Portland led 36-26 with 7:01 left in the second quarter, but a 16-footer by Griffin and scoop shot by Paul got the Clippers within 36-30. Again, the Trail Blazers went right back at the Clippers, upping their lead to as many as 11 before settling for a 49-40 halftime lead.The Clippers shot just 1 of 10 from 3-point range in the half. The Trail Blazers were 4 of 15. More importantly for them, Lillard and McCollum were a combined 12 of 22 at that point.The Clippers were again down by 11 early in the third, but had cut their deficit to 53-47 when Plumlee flew through the air and made a reverse slam-dunk put-back that brought the crowd to its feet.The Clippers, however, were very much in the game through three quarters as they trailed just 70-67 ahead of the fourth.center_img Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorlast_img read more
