Trump says US to have coronavirus vaccine by end of year

first_imgThe vaccine prediction moves up the timeline that has been discussed as the United States and other countries race to be the first to bring out a way to prevent COVID-19.Trump insisted he would be happy for another country to beat US researchers to the medicine, saying “if it’s another country I’ll take my hat off.””I don’t care, I just want to get a vaccine that works.”Asked about risks during human trials in a research process that is going unusually quickly, Trump said “they’re volunteers. They know what they’re getting into.” President Donald Trump on Sunday said the United States will have a coronavirus vaccine by the end of this year.”We are very confident that we’re going to have a vaccine at the end of the year, by the end of the year,” Trump said in a Fox News “town hall” show broadcast from the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, DC.He also said he would urge the reopening of schools and universities in September, saying “I want them to go back.” Trump appeared to acknowledge that he was getting ahead of his own advisors on the prediction for the vaccine.”The doctors would say ‘well, you shouldn’t say that.’ I’ll say what I think,” he said.center_img Topics :last_img read more

At the same time, they don’t feel big pressure from United, Chelsea, from the team that could stay ahead of them so they have the fourth position more or less under control.‘One point here, one point there was enough for them to keep control. Probably the Champions League becomes step after step the dream for them. Maybe it took away the focus for them.

I won’t intentionally help my patients to end their lives

first_imgThe Age 9 October 2017Family First Comment: A great article – from a medical professional (not an ACT MP!) who knows the truth “A request to die is uncommon, and is often driven by poorly controlled pain or nausea, as well as fear, loss of function and hopelessness. Usually when pain and other symptoms are under control, good nursing care is on hand, and psychological support has been provided, patients no longer want their death to be hastened. For family members watching a loved one die, the experience can be agonising. However, with appropriate involvement of palliative care, the preparation and education of family members about the normal processes of dying (such as irregular breathing and fluctuating consciousness), and with the administration of pain relief, there is minimal physical suffering.Most patients with incurable cancer battle to the end. They exhaust all evidence-based active treatment options and clinical trials before being told that supportive care measures are now best.A request to die is uncommon, and is often driven by poorly controlled pain or nausea, as well as fear, loss of function and hopelessness. Usually when pain and other symptoms are under control, good nursing care is on hand, and psychological support has been provided, patients no longer want their death to be hastened.For family members watching a loved one die, the experience can be agonising. However, with appropriate involvement of palliative care, the preparation and education of family members about the normal processes of dying (such as irregular breathing and fluctuating consciousness), and with the administration of pain relief, there is minimal physical suffering.When a patient seeks assisted dying, it is often when they are first told they have a limited life expectancy and before they are truly unwell. They are so distressed by such difficult news that they anticipate what is to come and can be consumed with fear and an urge to regain control. They may respond by seeking assisted dying at a time of their choosing. In overseas jurisdictions where this is legal around 80 per cent of those who access it have cancer.Under the assisted suicide model proposed for Victoria, no psychiatric assessment or specialist palliative care assessment of intending patients are required. There is no need to involve the patient’s treating doctors as two new doctors with no mandated end-of-life expertise assess and authorise lethal medicine without any follow-up care.Informing family members is optional. The entire process can be completed and drugs taken within 10 days – little time for change of mind about an irreversible act. Everyone is presumed to have decision-making capacity unless they obviously don’t. Determination of a patient’s life expectancy involves an educated guess by doctors and the confidence intervals can be wide.READ MORE: http://www.theage.com.au/comment/i-wont-intentionally-help-my-patients-to-end-their-lives-20171009-gywz7j.html?platform=hootsuitelast_img read more

Australia to ensure India has ‘best’ training facilities in quarantine

first_imgMELBOURNE, Australia (Reuters) – India will have to abide by Australia’s 14-day quarantine requirement ahead of the Test series starting in December but arrangements will be made to ensure their players can prepare as well as possible, Cricket Australia (CA) said yesterday.The Indian board’s (BCCI) chief Sourav Ganguly told local media earlier this month he hoped Virat Kohli’s side could have their quarantine “reduced a bit” before the first Test in Brisbane from December 3.Australia requires international arrivals to isolate in quarantine hotels due to the COVID-19 pandemic, though some have been allowed to pass the period at home due to health reasons.CA interim chief executive Nick Hockley suggested there was little prospect of India’s players having a shorter quarantine.“It’s widely known and unlikely international travel restriction will have lifted by the time India are due to come into the country,” he told reporters on a video call.“I think the two-week quarantine is pretty well defined. What we’re working on is making sure that within that quarantine environment, the players have got absolutely the best training facilities so that their preparation for the matches is as optimal as it can possibly be.”Hockley said Australia was closely watching the West Indies tour of England, which has gone off largely without a hitch apart from fast bowler Joffra Archer breach of the team’s biosecurity protocols.The Adelaide Oval, which has an attached hotel, has been seen as a potential venue for India to train safely while in quarantine.“Whether it’s a hotel on-site or hotels in close proximity to venues, it’s about certainly creating that environment where we’re minimising the risk of infections,” said Hockley.“Creating a biosecure environment is the absolute priority because there’s just a huge amount at stake if we’re not able to do that.”last_img read more

Stingy defense shuts down Minnesota’s offensive attack

first_imgJEFF SCHORFHEIDE/Herald photoIt must seem like the opponent is playing defense with six people for the Minnesota Golden Gophers when they play Wisconsin.The first time the two teams met, Wisconsin held the high-scoring Minnesota to a season-low 47 points in a 63-47 win for the Badgers.On Saturday, it was much the same story, as the 14th-ranked Badgers frustrated the Golden Gophers into shooting just 33.3 percent from the field as UW won again, 65-56.For Minnesota, which entered the game ranked second in the Big Ten in scoring with just over 68 points per game in conference play, the 56 points was its second-lowest scoring output of the season.“They do a good job of guarding the basket; they don’t give up many easy baskets in transition,” Minnesota head coach Tubby Smith said following the game.“You’ve got to be patient. That’s the key. They’re not going to gamble, and usually you’re going to be taking a shot at the end of the shot clock.”When Minnesota was patient enough to work the ball inside to its post players, the Golden Gophers found it tough to convert, stymied by their own missed layups and the Badgers’ tough interior defense.“You have to score over them,” Smith said. “They’ve got good, long defensive people inside and good physical inside; [they] play great position defense.”Wisconsin dominated points in the paint, outscoring Minnesota by a 22-12 margin.“We made sure to chest up and not foul them and make sure that they made some difficult shots,” Wisconsin forward Brian Butch said. “Anytime you do that ? it’s tough to make baskets.”One of the most effective defenses for the Badgers was their own offense. For the second straight game, UW was able to hold on to the ball and limit its turnovers (10). Against a team like Minnesota, which likes to get easy baskets in transition off of steals and opponents’ turnovers, that ball control can be just as important as anything defensively.“You have to get back, you?ve got to not let people get to the rim or get wide-open threes,” UW head coach Bo Ryan said.For as poorly as they shot overall, the Golden Gophers were able to find some open looks from 3-point range in transition.Minnesota burned Wisconsin with three fast-break 3-pointers in the second half, including two by guard Lawrence McKenzie ? the second of which tied the game at 45 with just under nine minutes left in the game.That look for McKenzie came off a missed free throw by Joe Krabbenhoft. With the Badgers aggressively going for an offensive rebound, McKenzie’s defender was late to get back on defense and no one helped out defensively.“That’s one of the few in transition that we give up,” Ryan said. “We don’t give up very many, but he was wide open.”Hughes returns to formAfter three consecutive games in which his scoring output was considerably below average, point guard Trevon Hughes hinted at a return to form with his 11-point, six-rebound, two-steal outing against Minnesota.Having scored just 16 points in the previous three games combined, it was Hughes’ decision-making that made the difference Saturday.“He was more consistent because his decision making was more rational and calculated,” Ryan said.And while Hughes failed to record an assist during Saturday’s win, he also kept the ball safe. Hughes did not turn the ball over at all in 34 minutes, marking the first time he has done so this season.“A guy like Trevon isn’t going to get a lot of assists in a game where we go to the free-throw line 33 times,” Ryan said.last_img read more

Robin van Persie: Man Utd striker lucky to be alive – Ferguson

first_imgSir Alex Ferguson says Robin van Persie is “lucky to be alive” after being hit in the head by a ball struck by Ashley Williams in the 1-1 draw with Swansea.Van Persie was lying on the ground when Williams kicked the ball from a couple of yards away as the referee blew the whistle for a foul.Ferguson felt Van Persie was fortunate to escape serious injury.“Robin van Persie is lucky to be alive. It was a disgraceful act from their player,” Ferguson told BBC Sport.“He should be banned by the FA. Robin could have had a broken neck.”The United manager said Williams, 28, had deliberately aimed the ball at Van Persie, who reacted furiously – both players were cautioned by referee Michael Oliver. Ferguson added on Sky Sports: “With the Van Persie situation, you can clearly see that he could have been killed.“He should be banned for a long time because that was the most dangerous thing I’ve seen on a football field for many years.“It was absolutely deliberate. The whistle has gone, the game has stopped and he has done that right in front of the referee, he could have killed the lad.“It was a disgraceful act by the player, he should be banned for a long time.”Williams denied he had hit Van Persie intentionally. “I’ve seen it on the TV and that’s his [Ferguson’s] opinion,” said Williams.“Everyone’s going to have their own opinion but, from my point of view, I tried to apologise on the pitch but it all flared up.“I just kicked the ball in frustration and obviously not trying to hit him square on the head.“I understand exactly why he’s angry. I’d be the same if the ball hit me on the head at that pace.”United striker Wayne Rooney tried to play the incident down. “I think it’s one of those things,” he said. “The whistle’s gone, the defender has gone to clear and it’s hit him in the head. I think probably the right decision from the referee.”United led the Premier League by six points going into the weekend’s fixtures but, after the draw with Swansea and rivals Manchester City’s win over Reading, that advantage has been cut to four points.“It should have been six. That’s the disappointment,” added Ferguson.“We absolutely battered Swansea [in the second half].“In the second half it was a marvellous performance by us and we were unlucky not to win it. We struck the bar twice and had some great chances. “If there is a criticism then maybe it is that we were wasteful with the chances and we have to hold out hand up to that.”The United manager was angry that referee Michael Oliver, 27, did not disallow Swansea’s equaliser for a foul by Chico on Van Persie during the build-up to the goal.“It really it should have been a foul for us when the defender fouled Van Persie but the referee has had one of those games,” said Ferguson.“I know he is a young referee but dear me what a performance that was.”last_img read more
