Fauci: MLB shouldn’t play into October

first_imgWith Major League Baseball and its players association arguing over when the season should start, one of the nation’s leading coronavirus experts weighed in about when play should end.Dr. Anthony Fauci, the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, doesn’t want to see baseball played beyond September this year.Speaking with the Los Angeles Times, Fauci said Tuesday, “If the question is time, I would try to keep it in the core summer months and end it not with the way we play the World Series, until the end of October when it’s cold. I would avoid that.” Numerous US states, including many that are home to MLB teams, are seeing rises in COVID-19 cases.”Even in warm weather, like in Arizona and California, we’re starting to see resurgences as we open up (after shelter-at-home periods),” Fauci told the Times. “But I think the chances of there being less of an issue in the end of July and all of August and September are much, much better than if you go into October.”Fauci said avoiding October baseball would probably be advantageous, adding, “I’d have to underscore ‘probably.’ This virus is one that keeps fooling us. Under most circumstances — but we don’t know for sure here — viruses do better when the weather starts to get colder and people start spending more time inside, as opposed to outside. The community has a greater chance of getting infected.”The likelihood is that, if you stick to the core summer months, you are better off, even though there is no guarantee. … If you look at the kinds of things that could happen, there’s no guarantee of anything. You would want to do it at a time when there isn’t the overlap between influenza and the possibility of a fall second wave.”Regarding whether baseball should consider admitting fans in stadiums for games, Fauci told the Times, “Unless you have a dramatic diminution in cases, I would feel comfortable in spaced seating, where you fill one-half or one-third or whatever it is of the stadium, and everybody is required to wear a mask in the stadium.”Discussions about when and how the baseball season should proceed are all hypothetical at this point, as team owners and the players union are engaged in feisty battle over the finances of a restart plan.The MLB Players Association announced over the weekend that it rejected management’s latest offer on the number of games and the pay rate, asking MLB to set the dates for a severely shortened schedule. MLB commissioner Rod Manfred fired back Monday by stating he wouldn’t institute a schedule due to the union’s “decision to end good-faith negotiations.”Topics :last_img read more

Young and fit and killing themselves using euthanasia drug

first_imgBendigo Advertiser 8 October 2015Young and physically healthy people are killing themselves using a drug recommended by euthanasia groupsThe state government inquiry into end-of-life choices was told that 52 Victorians died using pentobarbitone, otherwise known as nembutal or “the peaceful pill”, between 1999 and 2014.Coroners Prevention Unit manager Jeremy Dwyer told the Legal and Social Issues Committee that the majority of those suicides were young people who were physically healthy, but mentally ill.“There have been claims from the authors of The Peaceful Pill Handbook that their messages are only intended for one group [the elderly and seriously ill],” he said.“But the unintended consequences of it is that people who are not the stated audience are picking up on it, they’re obtaining Pentobarbitone in the way recommended in the The Peaceful Pill Handbook and Exit International material and they’re suiciding.“That group used to be the minority, now it’s the majority of Pentobarbitone suicides in Victoria.”http://www.bendigoadvertiser.com.au/story/3409436/young-and-fit-and-killing-themselves-using-euthanasia-drug/A New Zealand-born woman living in Canada, Gillian Bennett, ended her life using Nembutal in August 2014. She was suffering from the early stages of dementia and called her death a suicide.  http://www.nydailynews.com/life-style/health/woman-commits-suicide-facing-dementia-article-1.1910731A Wellington woman ended her life with Nembutal in 2006, after receiving advice on how to obtain it from Dr Nitschke. She was a life-member of EXIT and was suffering from depression. http://www.stuff.co.nz/national/health/250448/Outrage-as-healthy-woman-helped-to-dieA woman died from Nembutal and presented their story as an affidavit in the Lecretia Seales case in May this year.http://lecretia.org/wp-content/uploads/2015/10/redacted_affidavit_of_person_a.pdfA South Island man known as John stated in 2009 that he intended to end his life using Nembutal. He was suffering from cancer.http://www.stuff.co.nz/sunday-star-times/latest-edition/2711453/I-want-to-choose-end-says-cancer-sufferer“Dr Nitschke said there were several clear reasons for this trend. Most significant was the aging of the population and the increasing availability of information and drugs capable of providing people with a reliable and peaceful death…“Reliable sources of the premier euthanasia drug Nembutal are now readily obtained on the internet, and at Exit we encourage elderly people to source this drug…“Exit has also been instruments in providing elderly New Zealanders with supplies of MaxDog nitrogen, another practical method that guarantees the option of a peaceful death. In particular, the use of MaxDog nitrogen also ensures that the cause death will be impossible to determine, if this is the wish of the person ending their

Graziano Pelle has been magnificent for Southampton – Steven Davis

first_img The Italian has been playing well of late and, having already been praised by manager Ronald Koeman after the victory, Davis has added to the plaudits. “I think he plays a vital role,” Davis said of the 30-year-old striker. “I think everybody knows we like to try and play football, but he also gives us that outlet if we want to go a little bit more direct and he can cause teams a lot of problems. “We can play off him and he’s probably one of the best in the league in terms of doing that, so he’s been magnificent for us. Obviously, the goals that he’s scored as well, you can see he’s playing full of confidence.” Davis has now netted four goals in his last seven games for club and country having failed to register a single goal in the whole of last season. “It’s nice to see the ball hitting the back of the net,” he told Southampton’s official website. “I think I just always try to get into the positions, but it was a great team goal. The first one I think the boys worked it really well and it was a great ball in from Ryan Bertrand and nice to get on the end of it. “I just have to keep on trying to get into those positions and hopefully get a few more between now and the end of the season.” While Southampton are enjoying a strong spell having started the campaign slowly, Bournemouth have now lost four of their last five league games and are teetering on the Premier League relegation zone. Steven Davis believes Graziano Pelle is “vital” to Southampton after the striker scored his ninth goal of the season in Sunday’s win over Bournemouth. Northern Ireland midfielder Davis opened the scoring as Saints beat their south-coast rivals 2-0 at St Mary’s to move up to seventh in the Barclays Premier League. Pelle added the second just five minutes after Davis’ opener – powerfully heading home Dusan Tadic’s cross in his now-trademark style. Eddie Howe’s side host fellow strugglers Newcastle next week but the Cherries boss is not singling out the fixture as a must-win game for his team heading into the international break. “They are all big games,” he said. “You can’t turn anywhere without another big one coming, we need to get used to that. We are looking forward to this game as much has any other. “We know we need points but we also need good performances. We need to put that first half to bed and certainly learn from it.” Press Associationlast_img read more
