Indian doctor warned for Games needles

Written by admin on  Categories: 老域名出售

India’s boxing team says an athlete received a vitamin injection at the Games athletes’ village The Indian boxing team has come under scrutiny after their team doctor breached a no needles policy.

The doctor for India’s Commonwealth Games boxing team has been issued with a warning after breaching the Games’ no needles policy for the athletes village.

The Commonwealth Games Federation confirmed on Tuesday it had reprimanded Amol Patil after he conceded he’d incorrectly disposed of a syringe he’d used.

Dr Patil told a federation court hearing he’d administered a vitamin B injection to an athlete who was feeling unwell.

The hearing was sparked after a CGF medical commission investigation into the location of syringes by a cleaner on the weekend near the boxing team’s accommodation deemed the matter a clear breach of the policy.

Upon questioning, Dr Patil admitted he had left the needles in his room to obtain a sharps bin from the village medical centre.

While medical practitioners are allowed to bring syringes into the village their use is highly regulated and must have prior approval.

Athletes are banned from having needles in the village unless they have approval for the treatment of a condition requiring auto-injecting, such as diabetes.

The court ruled Dr Patil had breached those protocols by leaving the needles unattended and that the needles in question were not disposed of until after he had made two trips to the village’s clinic.

On Monday India’s high performance boxing manager, Santiago Nieva, admitted a team doctor had administered a vitamin injection to a sick athlete.

Nieva however disputed any suggestion his 12-strong boxing team had been doping.

“I’m confident that our boxers (have) not taken anything,” he told the Seven Network.

“We had one boxer who didn’t feel very well and the doctor has given him an injection.”

The CGF said it had issued a strong written warning to the doctor for the breaches with a recommendation he familiarise himself with CGF policies.

It had also ruled Dr Patil’s failure to fill out an injection declaration form had been repaired by his compliance via email following the discovery of the syringes and the CGF investigation.

A copy of the warning will also be sent to India’s chef de mission along with a warning to ensure there’s no further infractions by the Indian team.

Team India was warned at the 2014 Glasgow Games about the use of needles and their correct disposal after syringes were found where their wrestlers and a para-athlete were staying.

The CGF said Gold Coast are the first Games for Dr Patil and India’s chief medical officer but the doctor had admitted he was aware of the no needles policy.

On Tuesday, India’s boxers trained on the Gold Coast but did not speak to media while the Times of India newspaper reported Indian swimmers and gymnasts had been selected to provide urine samples upon their arrival at the village.

PM staring down latest pro-coal push

Liberal backbench MP Craig Kelly has joined other coalition members to lobby for coal energy.Malcolm Turnbull is staring down yet another pro-coal push from his backbench, with the latest effort calling for a new $4 billion power station.
老域名购买

Liberal MP Craig Kelly is part of the self-described ‘Monash Forum’, which includes a collection of coalition backbenchers, calling for taxpayers to fund a coal plant.

The “forum” is named after World War I military commander (Sir) John Monash, who was a key figure in opening Victoria’s Latrobe Valley up to coal production.

“If the government can intervene to build Snowy 2.0, why not intervene to build Hazelwood 2.0 on the site of the coal-fired power station in Victoria that’s now being dismantled?” the group asked in a letter published on Sky News on Tuesday.

The government owns the Snowy Hydro scheme, but does not own the former Hazelwood site.

Mr Turnbull says his government’s policy put a premium on “dispatchability”, which could be delivered by coal, gas, pumped hydro or other technologies.

“I can only say to you that our national energy guarantee has been endorsed by the whole coalition party room,” he told reporters in Brisbane.

“It’s got strong support from industry and state jurisdictions … it’s vitally important that it be adopted because what we need is a technology-agnostic energy policy that encourages investment.”

Mr Turnbull says a technology-neutral policy can deliver affordable and reliable power while meeting ‘s emissions targets.

Labor frontbencher Mark Butler said “fossils” in the hard-right of the coalition were testing Mr Turnbull’s leadership, just ahead of a crucial Newspoll next week.

“Given his track record of failing to stand up to the hard-right of his party room and caving in on two energy policies, no one should be surprised if he caved into the hard right fossils again,” Mr Butler said.

It is expected the Newspoll will be the 30th in a row showing the coalition trailing Labor – a measure which Mr Turnbull used to oust Tony Abbott in September 2015.

Mr Kelly said it was “nonsense” to suggest the group aimed to destabilise Mr Turnbull’s leadership.

“With so much anti-coal rhetoric around in the community we want to ensure that people understand and we’re a voice about how important coal is to our economy,” Mr Kelly told ABC radio.

“Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull has my full support.”

Energy Minister Josh Frydenberg spoke to Mr Kelly on Tuesday after reports emerged of the group.

“What they want to see and what we want to see is exactly the same thing, which is lower prices and a more reliable system,” Mr Frydenberg told reporters in Melbourne.

“Coal has an important part to play in that role.”

Energy ministers will meet in Melbourne on April 20 to discuss the policy.

Winnie Mandela dies aged 81 after illness

Written by admin on  Categories: 老域名出售

Winnie Madikizela-Mandela (file), Nelson Mandela’s second wife, has died at 81 after a long illness.Winnie Madikizela-Mandela, who emerged as a combative anti-apartheid campaigner during her husband Nelson Mandela’s decades in jail but whose reputation was later tarnished by allegations of violence, has died at the age of 81.

Madikizela-Mandela died peacefully on Monday surrounded by her family following a long illness that has kept her in and out of hospital since the start of the year, family spokesman Victor Dlamini said in a statement.

“Winnie Mandela leaves a huge legacy and, as we say in African culture, a gigantic tree has fallen,” President Cyril Ramaphosa said after visiting Madikizela-Mandela’s house in Soweto, where he was surrounded by singing mourners.

“She has been one of the strongest women in our struggle, who suffered immensely under the apartheid regime, who was imprisoned, who was banished, who was treated very badly,” he said.

An official memorial service will be held for Madikizela-Mandela on April 11 and a national funeral on April 14, said Ramaphosa, who declared earlier that South Africans had lost “a mother, a grandmother, a friend, a comrade, a leader and an icon”.

A crowd of around 200 people congregated outside Madikizela-Mandela’s Soweto home soon after her death was announced, singing and dancing.

Ministers and national figures paid tribute, including retired South African cleric and anti-apartheid campaigner Archbishop Desmond Tutu, who said: “Her courageous defiance was deeply inspirational to me, and to generations of activists.”

Born on September 26, 1936, in Bizana, Eastern Cape province, Madikizela-Mandela became politicised at an early age in her job as a hospital social worker.

The 22-year-old Winnie caught the eye of Mandela at a Soweto bus-stop in 1957, starting a whirlwind romance that led to their marriage a year later.

After Nelson Mandela was jailed for life in 1964 for sabotage and plotting to overthrow the government, Madikizela-Mandela campaigned tirelessly for his release and emerged as a prominent anti-apartheid figure in her own right, undergoing detention, banishment and arrest.

She punched the air in the clenched-fist salute of black power as she walked hand-in-hand with Mandela out of Victor Verster prison, near Cape Town, on February 11, 1990.

For husband and wife, it was a crowning moment that led four years later to the end of centuries of white domination when Mandela became South Africa’s first black president.

But their marriage began to fall apart in the years after his release. The couple divorced in 1996, nearly four decades after they were married. They had two children together.

The end of apartheid marked the start of a string of legal and political troubles for Madikizela-Mandela.

As evidence emerged in the dying years of apartheid of the brutality of her Soweto enforcers, the “Mandela United Football Club”, her sobriquet switched from “Mother” of the nation to “Mugger”.

Blamed for the killing of activist Stompie Seipei, who was found near her Soweto home with his throat cut, she was convicted in 1991 of kidnapping and assaulting the 14-year-old. Her six-year jail term was reduced on appeal to a fine.

Hundreds of vikings take over the Armidale pine forest for their biennial gathering

It’s one of the biggest reenactments in the southern hemisphere, and The Gathering was open to the public on Monday.

Organiser Amy Winrow said there’s a lot of research that goes into the viking lifestyle.

“There’s a lot of camaraderie,” she said.

“I’m really inspired by understanding those cultures and how they lived so long ago, what shaped their beliefs and actions–that’s really what interests me.

“But I was always interested in it, I think it’s really important to cultivate your imagination.”

The three-day event sees history fanatics recreate dress, lifestyle and combat styles of Europe between 400AD and 1100AD.

More than 600 people are camped out in the forest, taking part in fierce battles dressed in full viking armour and garb.

At the markets, blacksmiths and traditional bodgers show off their wares and skills, while musicians play viking music on hand-commissioned instruments.

There’s a lot of problem-solving involved, every viking needs to use the raw materials they have to survive, Ms Winrow said.

“When you come out to a place like this where you’re working with natural materials there’s a lot happening, it’s a really vibrant, fertile brain space.”

Some peopleeven enact specific individuals found in burial sites, founder Richard Robinson said.

“It’s about rediscovering lost arts, working out how people did things thousands of years ago when we didn’t have technology to help us do things,” he said.

“In n society because of our population we are a noticeable minority and possibly sometimes perceived as eccentrics.

“But, it’s a real community.”

Knowles pips Pearson to carry Aussie flag

Written by admin on  Categories: 老域名出售

Kookaburras captain Mark Knowles will be ‘s flagbearer at the 2018 Commonwealth Games.Home-grown boy made good Mark Knowles has beaten out the local favourite to carry ‘s flag into the Commonwealth Games opening ceremony.

Hockey captain Knowles was a popular, but surprise, choice when named flag bearer ahead of fellow Queenslander Sally Pearson at the team reception on Monday night.

Chef de mission Steve Moneghetti rejected any suggestions his decision was based on Pearson’s worrying achilles injury possibly forcing the world hurdles champion and Olympic gold medallist out of her home town Games.

“It has nothing to do with Sally with an injury,” Moneghetti said.

He said he chose Knowles because “he’s a decent human being who embodies everything that is good about being n.”

“He’s a home grown boy who has made good.”

In his fourth and last Commonwealth Games, Knowles said it would be an “extremely, extremely proud moment” to carry the flag into Wednesday night’s opening ceremony.

Moneghetti insisted his decision wasn’t a competition between Knowles and Pearson who may now play a major role in the ceremony.

The Gold Coast local had earlier indicated she was available for any part in the ceremony, which Moneghetti said is a decision for the Games organisers.

Knowles, a triple Commonwealth champion and Olympic gold medallist, will be the first hockey player to carry the flag and says his appointment is a reward for all team sports.

“This is amazing. I grew up playing a sport I absolutely love on the grass fields of Rockhampton and I stand here now in front of this group of absolute stars,” he told the reception for the 710-strong team.

“It means everything to me.”

The 34-year-old Kookaburras skipper, who carried the flag at the closing of the 2014 Glasgow Games, will retire after the Gold Coast Games.

“My journey’s coming to an end but these 13 days are even more special now,” he said.

As the team leader, Knowles acknowledges the importance of preserving the dignity of n sport following the cricket ball-tampering scandal.

“It’s certainly a very, very important topic for us all to uphold the standards and behaviour of what the Commonwealth Games is,” he said.

“Being young athletes we do have to be careful of everything we do, we have to uphold those values.

“Whenever you’re trying to be elite, you’re playing on the edge, but we know where the edge is.”

Knowles is expected to finish his career on a high, with near certainties to continue its hockey domination, having won all five gold medals since the sport’s inclusion in the Commonwealth Games in 1998.

TweetFacebookWATCH what Knights’ coach Nathan Brown has to say about Wayne Bennett’s dig about him “unbuilding the club”: STORY: https://t苏州夜场招聘/FeVLJYmaNPpic.twitter苏州夜总会招聘/0hKdB4Ks5i

— Newcastle Herald (@newcastleherald) April 7, 2018

“He [Brown] has done a good job there, but we didn’t leave it in bad shape,” Bennett told Brisbane media on Friday.

Asked what Brown had done well, Bennett replied:“I’m not sure yet …well he unbuilt it, so I suppose if you unbuild it, the next thing you’ve got to do is rebuild it.”

Brown fired back after beating Bennett’s Broncos on Saturday night, saying it was “a bit sad” that the experienced coach had chosen to criticisehim.

“I ain’t ever publicly bagged Wayne, or anyone,” Brown said.

“Then he comes and has a shot at me. I don’t think he needs to behave like that myself.

“The reality is, when Wayne came to town, if he thought with his big head rather than his little head I wouldn’t have had to rebuild the joint.”

Brown then stood up and walked out without taking any more questions, leaving behind an amused Mitchell Pearce.

“You can take that to him if you like,” Brown said as he was exiting the press conference.

Brown didn’t elaborate, but the remark has been taken as a reference to Bennett’srelationship with his new partner, who he first met as a receptionist to Newcastle’s club doctor.

The last time the Knights tasted victory over the Broncos was back in 2013 when, ironically, current Brisbane coach Bennett was at the helm.

But it was Bennett on the receiving end on Saturday night with the Knights turning a 7-0 halftime lead into their third win of the season.

They did it off the back of their defence.

Brisbane forced a remarkable seven line dropouts but could only come up with two late tried.

Knights fullback Kalyn Ponga was again outstanding for the Knights while backrower Lachlan Fitzgibbon was not far behind.

It was Brisbane’s third loss of the season with their disjointed attack a worry for Bennett.

The Knights scored the only try of the first half with Pearce kicking a field goal on the stroke of halftime for a 7-0 lead to the home side at the break.

It was 32 minutes into the game before the 0-0 deadlock was broken and it took a touch of individual brilliance from Ponga to finally prise open the Brisbane defence.

WAYNE BENNETT: I DIDN’T LEAVE KNIGHTS IN BAD SHAPEKNIGHTS SAY THEY OWE IT TO THEIR FANSRunning the ball on the last tackle, Ponga’s electric speed and footwork got him on the outside of Broncos backrower Matt Gillett,with the Knights fullback putting Lachlan Fitzgibbon through a hole to score, leaving a mesmerised Kodi Nikorima in his wake.

Ponga added the extras for a 6-0.

The home side then came up with some heroics at the other end, repelling the Brisbane attack for three sets on their own line with some desperate defence.

The Broncos weren’t without their chances.

Nikorima was pulled down by Ponga with the line open after a James Roberts run while Anthony Milford came up with a crucial error after he made a bust and looked certain to set up a try for his side.

The Knights weathered enormous pressure at times with the visitors forcing five line-dropouts but Brisbane had nothing to show for it in the first 40 minutes.

Newcastle almost kicked further ahead two minutes after the resumption when prop Chris Heighington was pulled down just short on the last after great lead-up work from Nathan Ross and Brock Lamb..

But the Knights weren’t to be denied after 56 minutes when Pearce caught the Brisbane marker defence napping with an inside ball for big prop Daniel Saifiti to storm over near the posts.

Ponga’s goal advanced the scoreline to 13-0.

But a Shaun Kenny-Dowall mistake deep in his own half gave Brisbane a sniff and the resolute Knights defence finally cracked with winger Corey Oates just managing to get the ball down in the corner.

Ponga stretched the lead to 15-4 with a penalty goal 15 minutes from time before Milford set up a thrilling finish with a controversial try from dummy half with six minutes left after he appeared to throw the ball forward in the lead-up.

Dominant Despard caps off strong weekend with Stawell Gift win

The 21-year-old held off Hamish Adams and Gary Finegan to claim the title at Central Park with a change of environment re-focusing the six-time Stawell Gift competitor.

Despard said it was a smooth preparation leading into the final.

“I was really confident after the heat which made the Sunday a little easier, in the semi-final I still got the quickest time but only just and I knew I had a bit extra for the final,” he said.

The temporary fencing contractor ran off 4.25m to win the historictitlein a time of 12.12 seconds asjoint backmarker alongside 2017 Stawell Gift winner Matthew Rizzo.

Despard lives withn Commonwealth Games athlete Jack Hale and said heused him as an inspiration on how to approach hispreparation for the event.

“We went to the same high school in Tasmania, there was a bit of a rivalry there and we have grown to be good mates,” he said.

“As soon as I moved over from Tasmania, I moved in with him and copied what he does, the way he goes about what he does and how he prepares.

“Seeing how he prepares and what he gets to do has made me hungry to try to make an n team again.”

The move to Victoria showed the commitment required to achieve success with the 2018 Stawell Gift winner giving up takeaway food in the six months prior to the race.

Coach Scott Rowsell said it was a credit to him for the way he approached his preparation for the Stawell Gift.

“It is awesome, when you put in a plan six months ago and so much has to go right, it is such a buzz right now,” he said.

“To be able to focus and improve the way he has since November has been great.

“We just believe in the process, he ran the same race three times over and over again because we knew he would be quick enough to do that.”

Rowsell has a strong track record as trainer and saidthe win the start of bigger things to come for Despard.

“It is such a great environment for him to take himself to the next level,” he said.

“He could definitely achieve that next level and run in the green and gold.”

Despard said he hopes the move continues to pay off.

“I think just the overall preparation was different this time, we spoke six months ago and we said no stone unturned.

“Living with Jack has made me hungry to achieve bigger things.”Ballarat’s Mason Keast qualified for the final and finished fifth off 9.75.

Jesse Hernandez had been playing with other children on wooden planks over an access portal to the sewer system during a family outing at a Los Angeles park on Sunday.

When a plank broke, Jesse fell about eight metres and landed in fast-moving sewage, said Brian Humphrey, a spokesman for the Los Angeles Fire Department.

The other children immediately notified adults, who called 911, initiating a frantic and exhaustive 12-hour search of labyrinthine underground pipes using cameras propped on flotation devices.

Rescuers finally found Jesse after seeing images of handprints on a sewage pipe. A sanitation crew rushed to the area and opened a manhole.

“The first thing they heard was ‘Help!'” said Adel Hagekhalil, assistant general manager of the sanitation department.

The crew lowered down a hose to Jesse, who was about three metres deep in the pipe.

“He caught onto the hose and was reeled back up,” Hagekhalil said.

Rescuers gave him immediate medical attention, including hosing him down to get rid of the sewage and cleaning out his eyes and nose with sterile saline, Humphrey said.

Jesse immediately asked for a cellphone to call his family. A worker handed him a phone, and he called his mother.

“He was happy, the family was happy,” said Hagekhalil, adding that rescuers were thrilled at the outcome.

After an accident like Jesse’s, rescuers say the likelihood of someone being found safe diminishes by the hour.

“They never gave up hope,” Hagekhalil said. “They wanted to bring Jesse back to his family.”

About 731 metres of pipe had been inspected when rescuers found Jesse less than a mile from where he disappeared.

In addition to the massive rescue effort involving more than 100 people, Humphrey credited Jesse for his survival.

Not only did he survive getting swept through sewage moving at 24km/h, he managed to find a pocket of breathable air and hang on until he was found, authorities said.

“Any subterranean location, particularly one that involves waste, can produce toxic gases – methane, hydrogen sulfide – so breathable air is a key element,” Humphrey said.

“The odds of someone falling into such a pipe and surviving are slim. The odds were not in his favour, and many would call it miraculous.

“It’s obvious he’s not a quitter.”

Tourists return to Tathra for Easter

Tourists have returned to Tathra after last month’s bushfires destroyed more than 60 homes.Tourists have flocked back to the NSW south coast town of Tathra weeks after a massive bushfire reduced dozens of homes to ash.

The small community, outside Bega, confronted a firestorm on March 18 which destroyed more than 60 homes as well as 30 caravans and cabins.

Hundreds of residents face months or years of displacement as their destroyed properties are cleared of asbestos, assessed by insurance companies and – hopefully – rebuilt.

But many quickly identified tourism would be critical to getting the town, on the whole, back on its feet.

Bega Valley Shire Council, in a message posted online, said tourism is a major economic driver for the region and would be crucial for local restaurants, shops and, ultimately, families.

Council encouraged holidaymakers to not cancel travel plans to Tathra, adding “the closer to normal the community gets after a disaster like this, the better we all feel”.

“People understand Tathra is open for business and it’s pleasing to see people heeding our message,” Bega Valley Shire Mayor Kristy McBain told AAP on Monday.

Ms McBain said more than 50 per cent of local businesses were geared toward hospitality and tourism – and people from across the region were visiting the town to pour money back in.

“There is a long road ahead but I am taken aback by the support of people from near and far,” she said.

“And I’m astounded by the resilience people have shown just wanting to get on with things and move on.”

Preliminary investigations have pointed to power lines as the suspected origin of the blaze but two inquiries hope to establish the exact cause.

Questions also linger about the co-operation between the RFS and Fire and Rescue NSW after the former refused help from the urban brigade during the fire.

About 30 per cent of the properties destroyed in the fire are believed to contain asbestos, Ms McBain said.

A $10 million grant from the NSW Government will help hasten that cleanup effort but there is still no firm schedule for rebuilding.

“It’s not a quick fix,” Ms McBain said.

“We’ll be working the next 18 months to two years to make sure that people have been able to deal with their issues – rebuilding their properties and restoration of bushland areas.”
