And WHO determines it?Canada’s Liberal government has unveiled draft legislation on doctor-assisted suicide which would apply to adults suffering incurable illness or disability but stopped short of extending it to minors or the mentally ill for now.Legislators will vote on the draft law, which applies only to Canadians and residents in the country, by June 6.The Supreme Court of Canada overturned a ban on physician-assisted suicide last year but gave the new government of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau extra time to pass legislation, adding Canada to the handful of Western countries that allow the practice.Trudeau, whose father declined treatment for cancer before his 2000 death, said Canadians were “extremely seized with this issue.”“It’s a deeply personal issue that affects all of us and our families and all of us individually as we approach the end of our lives,” he told a news conference in London, Ontario, on Thursday.“The plan we have put forward is one that respects Canadians’ choices while putting in place the kinds of safeguards needed.”Under the law, patients would have to make a written request for medical assistance in dying or have a designated person do so if they are unable.There would be a mandatory waiting period of at least 15 days in many cases, and patients would be able to withdraw a request at any time.Patients would also have to be experiencing “enduring and intolerable suffering” and death would have to be reasonably foreseeable.READ MORE: bill provides perfect cover for acts of murderAlex Schadenberg Euthanasia Prevention Coalition 14 April 2016 Bill C-14, An Act to amend the Criminal Code and to make related amendments to other Acts (medical assistance in dying) was tabled today in the House of Commons today.The bill claims to be following a more restrictive framework, and in comparison to the radical recommendations from the government committee the bill appears to be more restrictive.  last_img read more

He’d have to be that God awful not to get a legitimate look and potentially have a job next week.”He continued to explain the second thing, which is that Kaepernick needs to stay quiet in the days leading up to the event.”The other thing that could be a hindrance is if he opens his damn mouth and starts talking too much, and scares these teams off and gives them the indication that more of what transpired, that led to all of this, will continue forward,” Smith said. “Only Colin Kaepernick can mess it up. It’s beyond all of that other stuff now. He needs to shut up. No Instagram. No Twitter. No anything. Show up Saturday, work out. Don’t say a word before then.”“Only Colin Kaepernick can mess this up, it’s beyond all that other stuff now.”[email protected] on what he’s been told about Kaepernick’s workout in front of NFL teams Saturday.— Golic and Wingo (@GolicAndWingo) November 13, 2019Smith said if Kaepernick can do all of that, he’ll have an NFL job “within the next week or two.”The former 49ers QB did release a brief statement on Tuesday, essentially just confirming he’ll show up for the workout in Atlanta.I’m just getting word from my representatives that the NFL league office reached out to them about a workout in Atlanta on Saturday. I’ve been in shape and ready for this for 3 years, can’t wait to see the head coaches and GMs on Saturday.— Colin Kaepernick (@Kaepernick7) November 13, 2019As for what to expect Saturday, NFL Media’s Ian Rapoport shared details Wednesday morning.Event begins at 3 p.m. ETInterview is at 3:15 p.m. ETMeasurements, stretching & warmups are afterTiming & testing at 3:50 p.m. ETQB drills at 4:15 p.m. ETIf a team isn’t able to send someone to the workout, every part will be recorded to share with NFL teams.The league sent the following memo to every team on Tuesday: The NFL has set up a combine-style workout for Colin Kaepernick scheduled for Saturday, and ESPN personality Stephen A. Smith claims there are two things the free agent quarterback needs to do if he wants to feel good about his job prospects.Smith, appearing on ESPN Radio’s “Golic and Wingo” show Wednesday morning, said he spoke with people “directly” regarding Kaepernick.  “Earlier this year, we discussed some possible steps with (Kaepernick’s) representatives and they recently emphasized his level of preparation and that he is ready to work out for clubs and be interviewed by them. We have therefore arranged this opportunity for him to work out, and for all clubs to have the opportunity to evaluate his current readiness and level of interest in resuming his NFL career.”While every team is invited, it’s not clear just how many teams will send someone to attend. ESPN’s Josina Anderson reported Tuesday night a team in the NFC will show up because, “We have nothing to lose by attending Kaepernick’s workout, but I still think for us it would just be an information-gathering trip.”Anderson also reported there is interest from the Cowboys in Kaepernick’s workout.Kaepernick, 32, hasn’t played in the league since the 2016 season with the 49ers. In 12 games, he had a 16-4 TD-INT ratio, averaging 186.8 passing yards per game. He also ran for 468 yards and two touchdowns. His 88.9 quarterback rating ranks 23rd all time among QBs with at least 1,500 career pass attempts.last_img read more

first_imgThe change will take place starting on Saturday and will continue until further notice.This week and last week many stores struggled to keep up with demand for sanitation and personal hygiene products after the CDC suggested that those most vulnerable to the coronavirus begin stocking up on the essentials items and practice social distancing.The President has since declared the coronavirus a national emergency to free-up the money needed to provide test kits, sanitation measures, and medical staff.Additionally, all schools including college and universities have closed their doors for the next two weeks to prevent the spread of the virus on campuses nationwide.For more on the coronavirus, click here. Publix stores will now start closing at 8:00 pm due to the coronavirus epidemic.The announcement was made Friday via the store’s Twitter account, stating that the early closing time will allow them to better sanitize and restock their establishments.last_img read more

first_imgThen the show started, and what a show as the great talents of the duo inspired some of our farang talent to join them on stage.We know Phil can belt out the Tom Jones classics but tonight, as we had many Irish golfers, he gave them some renditions of some Irish songs. Garry Barker, Nick Shaw and Terry Archer and one or two others all did a few numbers covering various genres, all in professional style.The place was rocking as the audience joined in the chorus lines, and even a conga line formed as the dancing and music became more exciting.Joy bought out the birthday cake, then some much appreciated donations from Jon Dean and Tommy Marshall became prizes in a lucky draw. Well actually, many lucky draws.A great night where people stayed on much later than ever before having a party to celebrate Phil’s Happy Birthday. This course is in terrific condition, considering the lack of water available, as many courses are drying out now.As we started to assemble at the first tee, the starter was pushing us to get the groups going early as he had to fit in a three-ball. Fairly soon he calmed down after deciding to start them from the tenth.We got our 19 groups away in a little less than two hours and, with no hold ups, all finished in good time, the first group came in under four hours.Plenty of presents available on such a big day with three flights and loads of novelty prizes.Phil Ashton, playing his second game since arriving from UK, took out the A flight with a solid 37 points.Then came three players on 36 points which needed a countback to sort them.
