Shane Bond backs Jasprit Bumrah’s inclusion for Champions Trophy

first_imgIndian Premier League’s table toppers Mumbai Indians’ death-over specialist Jasprit Bumrah should get the nod in India’s ICC Champions Trophy squad, feels the franchise’s bowling coach Shane Bond.”I will be surprised if he is not in it the squad. He will be a good bowler in all formats. At the moment he is a good ODI and T20 bowler,” the former New Zealand fast bowler said on Tuesday.Bumrah has been the go-to bowler to bowl at the death for MI this season due to the indifferent form of Sri Lanka’s sling-arm pacer Lasith Malinga.The 23-year-old bowler has taken 9 wickets in eight IPL games this season, the second-best for the team after New Zealand’s Mitchell McClenaghan (12).The Ahmedabad-born cricketer had played for India in the team’s last ODI against England at Kolkata in January. In 11 ODIs, since his debut against Australia at Sydney in January, 2016, Bumrah has captured 22 wickets.Bond, who was among the fastest bowlers in his prime before injuries cut short his international career after just 18 Tests in which he scalped 87 wickets, was impressed with the current crop of Indian bowlers.”India have been playing their cricket at home. Ravichandra Ashwin, Ravindra Jadeja are phenomenal in these conditions. But it has allowed the seam bowlers to come and make real impact and bowl quick. Umesh Yadav has developed as a bowler.”Bhuvneshwar Kumar hasn’t played much and the benefits of his rest can be seen as his pace has come up again. So, when India play away from home, they have got a seam bowling attack which is going to be a handful, given the right conditions,” said the 41-year-old from Christchurch.advertisementBond also heaped praise on Hardik Pandya and said the Baroda allrounder, along with Bumrah, adds balance to the MI squad.”Bumrah is a world class white-ball bowler and his reputation as a death bowler. He does bowl good yorkers. We try him with Hardik, get them to use range of variations, because people know Bum’s yorkers are so good,” Bond said.Praising Pandya for his all-round skills, Bond felt his work load needed to be monitored as well.”Hardik is our quickest bowler along with Bumrah at the moment. I am really pleased with the way he is coming along and developing. He has got a lot on his plate. He’s a genuine all-rounder, so we have to be very careful about managing his bowling,” said Bond, who scalped 147 wickets in 82 ODIs.He was also pleased with the performance of MI bowlers, in the T20 League so far. “I am really happy with the performance of the bowling group, not just the quick bowlers. We are lucky that Harbhajan Singh and Krunal Pandya are also bowling well. Karn Sharma got a game last night and did well.”When we take the field, we are planned and have lot of good strategies in place. We have bowlers who are capable of going and delivering out there,” he saidHe was also satisfied that the MI bowlers had been able to restrict the opposition batsmen to scores of around 160 despite the rivals getting off to some good starts.last_img read more

Rangers Get Over The Blues

first_imgNEW YORK — Surrounded by a small throng of reporters, New York Rangers center Derek Stepan shared the name of his favorite player in the NHL right now.Was it Washington star Alex Ovechkin? Pittsburgh’s Sidney Crosby? Chicago’s Jonathan Toews? Los Angeles’ Anze Kopitar?No to all of the above. Try teammate Mats Zuccarello.Zuccarello, Derick Brassard and Kevin Hayes scored in the first period, and the Rangers beat the St. Louis Blues 6-3 on Nov. 12 for their seventh straight victory.Zuccarello finished with three points and was one of six Rangers with multiple-point efforts against St. Louis.“He’s playing at such a high level right now. It starts with his compete level,” Stepan said. “He competes so hard.”J.T. Miller, Ryan McDonagh and Dan Girardi also scored for New York, which improved to 12-2-2. Henrik Lundqvist made 31 saves.Dmitrij Jaskin, Vladimir Tarasenko and Troy Brouwer had the goals for St. Louis, which had won three in a row. The Blues fell to 11-4-1.“I thought we were going to win this one,” Alex Steen said. “We still had a really good vibe and a really good push.”New York and St. Louis entered ranked first and third, respectively, in the NHL in goals against per game. But the first of their two meetings this season was a wild affair.By the first intermission, the Rangers led 3-1 and the Blues had made a goaltending change.Jake Allen came in with a shutout streak of 165:59. It ended 4:54 into the first period when Zuccarello fed Brassard at the goalmouth with a pass from behind the net for a tap-in.Nearly 3 minutes later, Zuccarello increased New York’s advantage to 2-0 with his eighth of the season. The sequence began with Brassard finding Zuccarello on the left wing with a diagonal pass.Zuccarello split Jay Bouwmeester and Kyle Brodziak at the blue line before speeding in and snapping a quick shot past Allen.Hayes’ semi-breakaway goal with 5:22 left in the period pushed the lead to 3-0 and prompted coach Ken Hitchcock to replace Allen with Brian Elliott.Allen allowed three goals on five shots. Elliott finished with 14 saves.Jaskin’s goal at 16:40 of the first cut the deficit to 3-1.“The best period we played all year on the road was the first period and we were down 3-0,” Hitchcock said. “I thought for sure with the way we were playing, we were really dominating the offensive zone. I thought we were going to win for sure.”The Blues, who finished with a significant advantage in shots on goal (34-22), pressed New York following Jaskin’s first of the season. Tarasenko’s unassisted goal 5:24 into the second pulled St. Louis within one.The speedy wing corralled a clearing pass from Lundqvist in the neutral zone and carried the puck up ice before whipping a shot from the left circle that beat the New York goalie high to the glove side.“He’s one of the best players in the game,” Lundqvist said. “He’s up there with (Ovechkin), I think, in the way he shoots the puck. I thought I was in good position and (his shot is) just so fast and accurate. Give him credit.“It’s definitely a test for a goalie.”Miller’s slap shot from the top of the left circle allowed New York to regain a two-goal advantage, but Brouwer’s power-play goal with 5:39 left in the second sliced the lead to 4-3.New York took its fourth two-goal lead of the game on McDonagh’s power-play goal 2:44 into the third. The Rangers’ captain one-timed a feed from Stepan past Elliott, then pumped his fist in celebration.Girardi’s empty-net goal at 18:26 of the third ended the scoring.(DENIS P.

Altidore Scores, Toronto Beats Crew to Reach MLS Cup Final

first_imgTORONTO (AP) — Jozy Altidore scored in the 60th minute and Toronto FC advanced to the MLS Cup final for the second straight year with a 1-0 victory over the Columbus Crew on Wednesday night in Game 2 of the Eastern Conference final.Toronto will host the Seattle Sounders or Houston Dynamo in the Dec. 9 MLS Cup final. The Sounders, who took the title from Toronto in a penalty shootout last year, lead the Western Conference final 2-0 going into Game 2 in Seattle on Thursday night.After a scoreless tie in Game 1 last week in Ohio, Columbus needed a win or draw with goals to advance. But Altidore, limping on a bum ankle, came through for Toronto before a sellout crowd of 30,392 on a crisp night at BMO Field.“I couldn’t really move, I was hobbling around,” Altidore said. “It’s tough too in these conditions too when you get a knock like that, it’s so cold, it’s a little bit worse. I wanted to give a little bit of time for whoever was up next, and if a chance came down to it, I wanted it to fall to me. And it did.”The goal started with Alex Bono’s goal kick that found Sebastian Giovinco deep in Columbus territory. The diminutive Italian held off several defenders and backheeled the ball to Altidore, who stabbed it to Victor Vazquez. The Spanish midfielder paused and then dinked a pass to Altidore for a right-footed shot past Zack Steffen.Columbus Crew goalkeeper Zack Steffen (23) makes a save on a penalty kick from Toronto FC midfielder Victor Vazquez, not shown, during the first half of an Eastern Conference MLS final playoff soccer game, Wednesday, Nov. 29, 2017 in Toronto. (Mark Blinch/The Canadian Press via AP)“That’s heart,” goalkeeper Alex Bono said “That’s all that is. That’s heart.”It was Toronto’s first goal in 258 minutes. The last score came almost a month ago — on Oct. 30, via Giovinco’s free kick in the 72nd minute of a 2-1 victory at Red Bull Arena.Columbus striker Ola Kamara nearly tied it in the 87th minute, but couldn’t get a boot to the ball on a raking cross. Bono then beat Kamara to a cross in stoppage time.“We were inches away from scoring the tying goal, we gave up one chance, they score,” Columbus coach Gregg Berhalter said. “Zack makes a huge play on the penalty. It’s a game of inches. We play all year for inches. Ball doesn’t go under Ola’s foot, we score. And we’re singing a different tune now.”Altidore had seemed destined for an early night after suffering an ankle injury in the 50th minute in a collision with Crew wingback Harrison Afful. The big man needed treatment on and off the field and Toronto prepared to send in substitute Armando Cooper.But Altidore stayed on, finally limping off eight minutes after the goal.TweetPinShare0 Shareslast_img read more

CIBC chief calls for clearer foreign investment rules more competitive tax scheme

first_imgTORONTO – The CEO of the Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce says Canada must boost its global competitiveness and prepare for a future downturn by offering clearer foreign investment rules, matching a U.S. policy which allows companies to immediately write off the full cost of capital investments and attracting more skilled immigrants.Victor Dodig said Tuesday in a wide-ranging speech that a lack of clarity on foreign investment rules is making business leaders and their clients hesitant to make significant long-term investments in Canada. Canada’s approval systems need to work better and more predictably, as there are other destinations where the returns and rules are more certain, he added.“This brand halo can only go so far,” he said. “They need confidence, they need an element of certainty… We need to be attracting that capital, we need to be attracting those people to our country to help cushion us during the downturn — and there will be a downturn.”His comments come just weeks after the Trans Mountain pipeline project expansion, which would double the existing line from Alberta to B.C. to triple the amount of oil shipped to the coast, was struck down by the Appeal Court on grounds including a lack of proper consultation with First Nations by federal government. Ottawa now owns the existing Trans Mountain line after purchasing it and other assets earlier this year for $4.5 billion to ensure the expansion gets done.Dodig on Tuesday in his speech to the Empire Club of Canada pointed to Trans Mountain as an example of one of the problems “we’ve created on our own.”The chief executive of Canada’s fifth-largest bank stressed that decisions should be made more quickly, “at this point especially, as we’re getting towards the end of an economic cycle.”He warned about rising global debt levels and interest rates that have been “too low for too long.”“That same debt that helped the world recover is actually infusing risk into the global financial system today and it’s generating headwinds… There’s a real serious global challenge of this low interest rate party developing a big hangover of debt.”He added that Ottawa should allow companies to expense capital investments with a one-year period, a measure which is now in place south of the border under U.S. President Donald Trump.Dodig said changing this rule in Canada would spur immediate capital investment and help level the playing field.The CIBC CEO’s comments echoed that of Royal Bank of Canada’s CEO earlier this year. Dave McKay told the Canadian Press in April that there is an investment capital exodus from Canada to the U.S. happening in “real time” due to tax reforms, including a corporate tax cut to 21 per cent from 35 per cent, and a U.S. change that enables American companies to immediately write off the full cost of new machinery and equipment.Dodig also said that Canada should remove interprovincial trade barriers to drive economic growth, barriers which he called “an embarrassment to our country.”He also called on the federal government to do more to attract skilled immigrants to Canada, pointing to the fact that although unemployment is low there are some 400,000 jobs that went unfilled for four months or longer, according to the Canadian Federation of Independent Business.Dodig added that “at a time in the world where others are saying no” Canada needs to do more to continue to attract the best and brightest.“There is a lot of talented technology refugees that aren’t welcome in certain markets, that should be welcomed into our market. To help our companies become stronger and more competitive in the future.”last_img read more

Outspoken doc not impressed by Health Canada announcement

first_imgJohn W MurrayAPTN InvestigatesA general practitioner who works with Indigenous patients is skeptical about a new Health Canada policy that allows travel companions for pregnant Status Indian and Inuit women.Dr. Mike Kirlew, a Sioux Lookout, Ont. doctor told APTN Investigates he believes the policy is just another band aid on a system that needs major surgery.He wonders if the policy is something the federal government really feels is innovative.“Do we honestly think that this would win a health care innovation award,” he said.APTN Investigates is digging into Non-Insured Health Benefits (NIHB) and First Nations healthcare as part of a report called Surviving Bureaucracy airing Friday April 21.Health Canada announced on April 9 they would allow partners or coaches to travel with mothers-to-be who leave northern communities to give birth but Kirlew said it’s been a mainstream policy for four decades.He said Health Canada and First Nations must strive for health care excellence overall instead of what he calls “incremental changes.”“That’s not innovative. It’s not particularly a ‘high five moment’,” he said, adding he is still grateful for the decision.He said there is greater clarity in policies and provincial legislation for mainstream Canadians than exists for Indigenous peoples.“If you have grey areas, people die in grey areas,” he said, adding legislation should clearly define health policy.“There is no law that says that Health Canada has to provide any minimum service on a reserve,” he said.Kirlew says clearly defined policy and protocol, like counting tools and gauze in surgery, have contributed to better patient outcomes.“You could go in to any hospital in the province and they will say this is our policy for counting pieces of equipment,” he said.  “This is our policy for sterilizing a piece of equipment. It is clear. You can get a policy. You can watch workers. And they are trained in adhering to that policy.”Kirlew said provincial systems are always operating on a mantra of “excellence,” often codifying it their own mission statements.For example, Covenant Health in Alberta states their organization will “serve through excellence in care.”Winnipeg’s Seven Oaks General Hospital’s mission statement states their intent is to “to provide exceptional care.”But nothing similar exists for nursing stations and federal healthcare.Dr. Kirlew advised Indigenous people and communities to reach that bar.“Don’t shortchange yourself by saying we want health care, it’s a treaty right to excellent healthcare, just like everyone else gets,” he said.He suggested the federal government needs to be challenged to reach for excellence as well, and pointed out Indigenous peoples are set up to fail in the current system.“It’s pointed towards crisis; it’s pointed towards illness,” he said. “It’s pointed towards making sure you are born marginalized, making sure that you live marginalized, and making sure you die marginalized.”jmurray@aptn.calast_img read more

13th Doctors New Companions Help Diversify the TARDIS

first_imgCongratulations @MandipGill @TosinCole and @BradleyWalsh Welcome to the TARDIS! Xx https://t.co/eq5zK8bTg6— Pearl Mackie (@Pearlie_mack) October 22, 2017“Alongside them, we’re delighted that Sharon D. Clarke is also joining the show” in a returning role, he revealed.Best known to UK television audiences for her work as Lola Griffin in Holby City, Clarke has also lead a number of West End musicals, originating the parts of the Killer Queen in We Will Rock You and Oda Mae Brown in Ghost the Musical.No additional character details have been released.The BBC did, however, confirm the new series will be a 10-week run of 50-minute episodes, kicking off with a “feature-length hour” for its autumnal launch.In the meantime, Whovians can catch Whittaker in this year’s Christmas special—the finale for showrunner Steven Moffat and Twelfth Doctor Peter Capaldi.Let us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey. Stay on target Bradley Walsh, Tosin Cole, and Mandip Gill are about to be famous.The BBC on Sunday surprised Doctor Who fans by announcing three new regular cast members, set to join Thirteenth Doctor Jodie Whittaker next year.According to the Beeb, Walsh will “star” as Graham, while Cole and Gill “play” Ryan and Yasmin, respectively.Which is either a nod to Walsh’s relative renown (the former soap actor hosts a nightly talk show and presents two game shows), or a subtle suggestion that the 57-year-old will have top billing over his lesser-known companions.Comedian-cum-actor-cum-quiz show host Bradley Walsh (via BBC)“I remember watching William Hartnell as the First Doctor,” according to Walsh, the only cast member old enough to have seen Doctors one through four on screen.“Black and white made it very scary for a youngster like myself,” he reminisced. “I was petrified but even though I’d watch most of it from behind the sofa through my fingers, I became a fan.”While some British audiences (though not the modern Doctor Who demographic) may recognize Walsh, international viewers will be meeting Cole and Gill for the first time.Gill as Phoebe McQueen on ‘Hollyoaks’ (via Channel 4)Both former series regulars on Channel 4 teen drama Hollyoaks (their characters share only nine episodes over five collective years), 29-year-old Gill and 25-year-old Cole join the BBC juggernaut next year.“This is an iconic show with an amazing fanbase and I look forward to everything that brings,” Gill said, no doubt bracing herself for the coming storm. “Certain roles seem unattainable and this is one of those, so much so I didn’t believe it to be true for the first few weeks.“This show is worlds away from the work I’ve done previously”—TV medical dramas Doctors, Casualty, The Good Karma Hospital—”and that’s the part that excites me the most,” she added.“I’m grateful and excited to be part of this journey with the team,” Cole said. “I’m looking forward to jumping in this Doctor Who universe.”The pair will likely be the center of media scrutiny over the next nine months, leading up to Doctor Who‘s return in autumn 2018; keep an eye on Geek for a more in-depth look at the show’s new lineup.Cole as Sol in ‘EastEnders: E20’ (via BBC)Initial fan reaction appears somewhat split, with many folks coming down on the feminist side—wondering why Whittaker, the first female Doctor, needs three companions to buoy her adventures.Others, meanwhile, point out that many a Doctor has traveled with a trio of friends, including the First (Susan, Barbara, and Ian), Ninth and Tenth (Rose, Mickey, and Captain Jack), and Eleventh (a family affair with Amy, Rory, and River).One thing’s for sure: The titular Time Lord never had such a diverse group of friends—white, black, brown, old, young, male, female.“The new Doctor is going to need new friends,” incoming showrunner Chris Chibnall said in a statement. “We’re thrilled to welcome Mandip, Tosin, and Bradley to the Doctor Who family.center_img HBO Max Scores Exclusive ‘Doctor Who’ Streaming RightsJo Tro Do Plo Plo No: ‘Doctor Who’ Welcomes Back Familiar Monster last_img read more

Vancouver homeless camp cleaned up

first_imgVancouver officials and police conducted a cleanup of a popular spot for homeless campers on the streets near Share House on Wednesday morning.Vancouver Police Department spokeswoman Kim Kapp confirmed the cleanup, noting that officers help do so regularly.Neighborhood police Officer Tyler Chavers said it’s generally a weekly happening, primarily on Wednesday but sometimes Thursday.Vancouver Department of Public Works, the city’s Code Compliance Team and officers coordinate, Chavers said, noting that officers are there for security.Officers post notices in the area in advance so the campers are aware of what is going to happen. The notices include the date and time of an upcoming cleanup, lists information about the city’s camping ordinance, and includes camping “expectations,” such as anyone camping should be packed up and prepared to move by 6:30 a.m.The neighborhood streets surrounding Share House, a 43-bed men’s shelter, are often filled with tents occupied by local homeless.Workers generally start in the area around the shelter during cleanups, but the targeted spots are dependent on what’s reported and found.Other areas regularly cleared include Esther Short and Old Apple Tree parks, as well as the Vancouver waterfront, although camping there has diminished somewhat with ongoing construction, Chavers said.The police department says the purpose of the cleanups is sanitation, not harassing and arresting the homeless. According to Chavers, the camps accumulate 30 yards of trash or more each week.“We can’t arrest our way out of this situation,” the officer said. “We never will.”The Council for the Homeless recently released results from the Point in Time count, an annual census of the homeless population taken on a single day in January, and determined the number of people who live outside in Clark County is up 39 percent from last year.According to the count done on Jan. 25, there were 421 people living in shelters and 374 people living outside.last_img read more

France midfielder says he wont be a World Cup standby player

first_imgThe World Cup is 22 days away and France midfielder Adrien Rabiot just wrote to his nation’s coach saying that he won’t  be a second choice player for the 2018 World Cup.This is coming after the 23-year-old Paris St-Germain player was named on the national team’s standby list of 11 players for the World Cup. He probably wanted to be in the final 23-man squad.In a change from the policy Deschamps adopted before the last World Cup and before Euro 2016, the standbys will not join the squad at the French training centre at Clairefontaine. The 11 players are expected to train by themselves and be easy to contact. Rabiot who has capped six times in France, had emailed coach Didier Deschamps saying he would not “be able to follow the training programme” according to IOLnewsOpinion: Neymar will earn respect back from the PSG fans Tomás Pavel Ibarra Meda – September 14, 2019 After completing his incredible return to Parc des Princes, we predict that Neymar will earn the respect back from PSG supporters.The situation between Neymar…Noel le Graet, president of the France Football Federation, said Rabiot’s reaction “was very surprising” according to Federation Francaise Football.He continued in the same statement: “Rabiot is a high-quality player and an endearing boy who has always behaved well in national selections where he has evolved.last_img read more

Environmental group sues over Yacolt quarry

first_imgA Clark County environmental group has filed a lawsuit against a Yacolt mining operation, claiming years of pollution and violations of the federal Clean Water Act.In a suit filed in U.S. District Court in Tacoma, Friends of the East Fork Lewis River claims that the Yacolt Mountain Quarry and its owners have discharged dirt, silt and other pollutants into tributaries of the East Fork. The suit names quarry operator J.L. Storedahl & Sons, Inc., company leaders and landowner Brent Rotschy as defendants.The quarry operation has long been a source of frustration among residents in the area. Friends of the East Fork President Richard Dyrland said the plaintiffs feel legal action is the only way to resolve the situation after years of problems. Opponents have contacted Storedahl directly in the past, he said, plus county, state and federal officials.“We felt that things were not getting corrected as they should be, and this has been an ongoing thing,” Dyrland said. “If we’re going to get anything changed … we had to take this step.”A representative of Kelso-based Storedahl was not immediately available to comment Tuesday.The Yacolt Mountain Quarry began operating in 2008, extracting rock from the north Clark County site. The operation discharges pollutants including nitrates, oil and grease into an intended infiltration pond, according to the lawsuit, which frequently overflows and carries those substances into the East Fork Lewis River system — seen as crucial habitat for threatened salmon.last_img read more

24 killed in Ecuador bus crash

first_imgPolice and rescue workers work on a Colombian-registered bus traveling to Quito, that crashed in Pifo, Ecuador, Tuesday, 14 August 2018. Photo: APA bus apparently lost its brakes, then hit another vehicle at high speed and rolled over four times, killing at least 24 people and injuring 22 while smashing into several houses along a highway near Ecuador’s capital early Tuesday, officials said.The Colombian-registered bus was traveling to Quito when it hit a smaller vehicle in an area known as dead man’s curve at about 3:00am, Ecuadorean authorities said.Residents described hearing a thundering noise like the world crashing down on them as the bus struck their homes in Pifo, a community 30 kilometres (18 miles) from Quito.Michelle Manay said she woke up and ran outside to see the carnage. “There were some people alive and others who weren’t,” she said.Wilson Pavon, head of Ecuador’s transit police, said the majority of the passengers aboard were Colombians, but some Venezuelans were also among the dead. Three people, including two minors, traveling in the smaller vehicle also died.A small fleet of ambulances and first responders rushed to the crash site about two hours from Quito before dawn. They found the severely wrecked bus overturned and several homes adjacent to the highway damaged and strewn with metal debris.Gen. Patricio Carillo of the Ecuadorean police told local reporters that it appeared the bus’s brakes failed, causing the driver to lose control and hit an oncoming car before crashing into poles and houses as it rolled.The investigation was continuing and the driver is hospitalized among the injured, Carillo said.Officials spent the early morning combing through the bus and removing the victims.”Among the tasks is identifying the bodies of the dead and coordinating with authorities in Colombia and Venezuela for their return,” Carillo said.It was the second bus tragedy in less than three days in Ecuador.On Sunday, 12 people were killed and 30 more were injured when a bus carrying fans of an Ecuadorean soccer team overturned on a highway after a game.Late Monday, relatives of the victims bid farewell to their loved ones at a collective wake held at the Barcelona club’s stadium in Guayaquil.Police were still investigating the cause of that crash, but some witnesses told local media the bus carrying members of the Sur Oscura fan club that accompanies Barcelona to all its away games was seen trying to overtake other vehicles shortly before the crash.On average, 13 people die each day on Ecuador’s roads, according to the highway safety organisation Road Justice. It says roughly 95 per cent are due to human error.last_img read more

Lawyer asks human rights court to sanction Costa Rica over sluggish response

first_imgNo related posts. Fed up with years of delays, a lawyer representing several people who won their challenge against a decade-old ban on in vitro fertilization is asking the San José-based Inter-American Court of Human Rights to sanction the Costa Rican government for not complying with the international court’s order.Boris Molina, lawyer for 12 of the 18 people who sued the Costa Rican government for denying them access to in vitro fertilization, sent a letter to the court today asking for sanctions. The lawyer argued that the payment of damages by the government was not sufficient recompense, and that the assembly must pass a law that legalizes and regulates IVF in Costa Rica, reported AmeliaRueda.com.According to the lawyer, the court can issue a verbal sanction or file a formal petition with the Costa Rican government. He added that stronger measures could be taken if the legislature misses the latest deadline, Dec. 21, reported AmeliaRueda.com.The Inter-American Commission on Human Rights determined that the ban on in vitro fertilization, a process where a human egg is fertilized outside the women’s body, constituted an arbitrary interference to the right to private and family life, the right to found a family, and the victims’ right to equal protection, according to a press release from the IACHR.The IACHR issued a merit report in August 2010 and gave the Costa Rican government two months to report on its actions. The IACHR granted the government three extensions to respond before filing a complaint with the Inter-American Court of Human Rights, according to court documents.The IACHR ruled that Costa Rica should implement the technique, make it available through the public health care system, and have lawmakers draft a law regulating its practice. When Costa Rica failed to act on the commission’s recommendations, the IACHR sent the case to the court in July 2011.  Since 2010, Costa Rica has missed every deadline to address the recommendations, including one last month.Costa Rica is the only country in the Western Hemisphere to outlaw the fertility treatment. The country passed the ban in 2000 under pressure from the Catholic Church and conservative lawmakers.  Facebook Commentslast_img read more

Labrador family of seven find new forever homes

first_imgA family of seven unwanted labrador dogs have been found new homes thanks to the efforts of a Paphos-based animal charity.The dogs were recently left at Animal Aid Welfare and CCP as their owners were no longer able to keep them, said Oana Bodnaras from the animal charity.“It is quite unusual for an entire family to be brought in to us, usually the father is not kept at home with the mum and puppies, but in this case, they were all given to us together,” she said.Bodanaras said that although the animals seemed in good health, the puppies, which are around four to five months old, had not received any vaccinations.“Thankfully they have been lucky to survive without any vaccinations, and this was possible only as they were kept with the mother.”Bodnaras added that the owners did the right thing by not separating the puppies at birth and this enabled the puppies to develop their immune system.After being dewormed and thoroughly checked, the puppies received their first vaccinations and declared fit and healthy.Bodanars said that the mum and dad, who are both young at around eighteen months old, will be rehomed together, as they have been together since they were puppies and have a strong bond.The labrador mother with some of her puppies“They are being prepared to go abroad to be rehomed,” she said.The five puppies, one female and four males, will be rehomed in Cyprus and abroad.“Two are going for local adoption and three are international adoptions.”The dogs will be placed in ‘forever’ homes where their new owners have passed a careful vetting procedure, as soon as possible.“The pet passport procedures have been started and as soon as the flights are booked they will be on their way. They are all really lovely, healthy dogs,” she said.At the centre the labradors are with around 25 other puppies that survived after being brought in at only three and four weeks old and are now ready to find new homes. She explained, as is the case with other shelters, it is tough to successfully hand rear such young puppies to health.“They needed extra care and attention and they are ready to find lovely new homes,” she said.There are also many more slightly older puppies looking for homes at the charity’s shelter, which is home to around 550 dogs.“A number of factors must work together to ensure happy owners, happy dogs and a happy home,” she said.The animal welfare oganisation was founded in 1982 and provides numerous services including, veterinary clinics in Paphos and Polis, a tea shop, charity shops, a rescue line and a rehoming service. The shelter is home to numerous donkeys, horses, dogs, cats, rabbits and goats.They are also in desperate need of donations of blankets, towels and other forms of bedding.“It is cold at present and it doesn’t matter how much washing we do, it never dries in time,” she said. For further information on rehoming contact 26 946 461      You May LikeIcePopMan Notices A Strange Hole In This Lake, So He Gets A Drone, Flies It Inside And Captures ThisIcePopUndoLivestlyChip And Joanna’s $18M Mansion Is Perfect, But It’s The Backyard Everyone Is Talking AboutLivestlyUndoSub Compact SUVs | Search AdsThese SUVs Are The Cream Of The Crop.
