‘Govt cowardly on euthanasia’? No – not yet.

first_imgLecretia Seales lives on in a health inquiry into euthanasia that kicks off this weekStuff co.nz 20th August 2016 On Wednesday Vickers will be the first of 1800 people to speak to a parliamentary inquiry into euthanasia, instigated by a petition in the name of former Labour MP Maryan Street and the Voluntary Euthanasia Society.The petition, which garnered 8795 signatures and cross-party support, came in the wake of Seales death.It demanded the committee examine public opinion on the introduction of legislation “which would permit medically-assisted dying in the event of a terminal illness or an irreversible condition which makes life unbearable”.More than 21,000 submissions later – the most ever received by any select committee – Vickers will pull up a seat at 8am in front of a panel of MPs to explain Lecretia’s story.But Amanda Landers, a clinician consultant, researcher and chair of the Australian and New Zealand Society of Palliative Care has spent 10 years caring for those who are terminally ill and she sees it differently.“In the last decade I’ve witnessed about 5000 deaths and what you hear from the media and public isn’t what you hear from most people at the end of their life, it’s almost in direct contrast.”“The voice of the well are the people who say, my body my choice,” she says.When people are in their final weeks and days it’s their family, pets and community they worry about – “they think less and less about themselves”.Landers says people talk about palliative care not working for everybody – that’s a concept she says doesn’t actually make any sense.“It’s not a medicine that can work or not work, it’s an approach … most of the time just being there with them is what they need.”Seales was cared and comforted for in her final days but as to whether she would have made the choice to end her life, Vickers says it wasn’t an option on the table.“That’s a hypothetical that I can’t answer because she didn’t get that choice.”READ MORE: http://www.stuff.co.nz/national/health/83351363/Lecretia-Seales-lives-on-in-a-health-inquiry-into-euthanasia-that-kicks-off-this-week?cid=app-iPhonelast_img read more

O’Brien expecting fired-up Waratahs

first_img He added: “We are getting closer and closer to the Test games, and teams are going to try and come at us a little bit harder. The Waratahs will be no different. “It’s going to be a very tough game, and whatever side is picked for the Lions we are going to have our hands full at the start of the game again. They are really going to come at us out of the blocks and try and hurt us a little bit, so it’s going to be massively intense again.” Head coach Warren Gatland will name his starting line-up for the Waratahs encounter on Thursday. Some previous Lions coaches have used the final Saturday game before the first international to give the probable Test side a run-out, but it is not thought Gatland will go entirely down that route. The back-row and second-row combinations remain fiercely contested, although his potential Test threequarter line of Alex Cuthbert, Brian O’Driscoll, Jamie Roberts and George North all played on Tuesday. Asked if he expected the Test team to feature this weekend, O’Brien added: “Your guess is as good as mine. I don’t think so, but who knows? “Every week you could say is this the Test team? But it is all up in the air in every position, and we are just trying to do our own jobs and keep the head down and the coaches will pick the Test side when it comes to it.” Sean O’Brien anticipates his former Leinster boss Michael Cheika sending out a fired-up New South Wales Waratahs team against the British and Irish Lions on Saturday. Press Associationcenter_img It promises to be tough challenge for Cheika, given that he is without 10 players currently in the Australia camp preparing for next week’s first Test and a further six on the injured list. But Lions flanker O’Brien said: “I know ‘Cheiks’ very well with him being at Leinster. He is an animated character, so I am sure he will have them fired up and wanting to be really aggressive and come hard at us.” last_img read more

Local heroes honored for saving Boca Raton baby from dumpster

first_imgTwo men who rescued a newborn baby girl from a dumpster in Boca Raton this past May were honored on Thursday morning.The Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office presented its Samaritan Award to Yusdani Gonzalez-Delgado and Sergio Vega for their “outstanding act, achievement, or exceptional service to his or her fellow man and community.”Gonzalez-Delgado and Vega were walking in an apartment complex near Boca Entrada Blvd on May 8., when all of a sudden, they heard what sounded like a baby crying.Gonzalez-Delgado then jumped into a dumpster and found the infant alive inside a plastic bag.“We both froze because it was something surreal,” Vega told WPTV. “She had trash around her, there were coffee grinds, she was dirty and bloody, but she was alive and well. Even at one point, she opened her eyes and looked at us.”The men took the baby out, cleaned her up, and called 911.Vega worked at the Boca Raton complex as a maintenance manager.The newborn, whose name is Sarah, made a full recovery and was later reunited with her father.Little Sarah and her dad attended Thursday’s awards ceremony and stood alongside the men as they accepted their award.ADORABLE: Today we got to see Sarah, the baby saved from a dumpster in West Boca.

Hard work, energy earn Gullikson playing time

first_imgAfter being a rarely-used option off the bench in the past, senior forward Kevin Gullikson has been getting increased playing time during the 2008-2009 season.For his first three years as a Badger, forward Kevin Gullikson jumped off the bench in excitement every time UW head coach Bo Ryan told him to get on the floor.Usually though, every game Gullikson got to play in was virtually notched as a Badger victory.This year, however, has been a bit different for the longtime Badger benchwarmer.After three seasons of watching his teammates Marcus Landry and Joe Krabbenhoft — who play the same position — get nearly all of the available minutes, Gullikson has finally been getting in on the action. This time, though, it’s because the Badgers need his presence on the court, and it is not as if he hasn’t deserved the opportunity.“He’s just working hard,” Landry said. “He’s here early, he’s staying here later. … He’s really worked hard. It’s not just something that was given to him — he’s earned it.”Though Ryan did not explicitly say so, he clearly agrees with Landry — Ryan awarded Gullikson with his first start as a Badger against Iowa on Jan. 21 after the forward had seen increased playing time over the previous few games.“It’s fun; I’m having a great time,” Gullikson said. “It’s a little less stressful from a mental standpoint, thinking if I’m going to go in this game or not. It’s a little more relaxed now, but right now I’m just worried about getting things done as a team and trying to get a win on Tuesday.”Even when he’s not in the starting lineup, Gullikson is still making noise coming off the bench. In Wisconsin’s most recent loss to Illinois, Gullikson stood out, grabbing a difficult offensive rebound before being fouled, giving the Badgers a second-chance opportunity.“He’s really moving away from the ball well,” Landry said. “His (scoring) action on the court may not be outstanding, but he’s opened up a lot of things for other people. His rebounding and moving without the ball has been great.”Seemingly, Gullikson has done everything and more of what the UW coaching staff asked of him. As a result, it is no surprise to see him receiving more playing time.Even though he did not start against Illinois, Ryan made it clear Gullikson would be a part of the Badgers’ scheme against the Illini and against the rest of the opponents the Badgers face this season.“He’ll be on the floor,” Ryan said. “I don’t worry about who’s starting. He did some really good things, which he has (done).”Ryan has stuck to his word. Seven games into the Big Ten season, Gullikson has been regularly rotated into the lineup, now seeing over 10 minutes per game in conference play.Now, with significant playing time a regular occurrence for Gullikson, teams have started to take notice of his presence on the court.“Over the years, especially last year when I was sitting on the bench, not really being able to play much, I was able to watch things on the court,” Gullikson said. “I’ve always tried to bring energy, but now when I make cuts, it draws attention and opens things up on the other side of the court.”While Gullikson attributes much of his improvement to competition from his teammates, Landry feels that Gullikson’s energy rubs off on the rest of the team, creating a livelier squad on and off the court.“He’s coming in, he’s able to move his feet,” Landry said. “It gives us a break and gives us a chance to get down and get our breath back. He comes in and providing energy off the bench that some guys just don’t have.”Following the loss at Iowa, Ryan talked about Gullikson’s last chance to be a factor in Wisconsin’s game plan and said he was impressed with what Gullikson had done to make it this far.“As a human being, you have an inner self that says, ‘What do I want, what am I after, what am I trying to accomplish,’” Ryan said. “As coaches, that’s what we’re trying to get out of everybody. Dig deep, keeping working, because you never know what might happen.”For Gullikson, the hard work has finally paid off, but it won’t be complete without a strong finish as a senior.“The reality hit that I’m a senior and it’s my last chance to do some things,” Gullikson said. “The three of us seniors have had a great three years before, but I want to add to that and make this a great year too.”last_img read more
