This is the amount that will be available over the next seven years under the new European PEACE III Programme, the third in a series of special, EU-funded peace and reconciliation initiatives to complement the peace process. The Special EU Programmes Body (SEUPB) will carry out the public consultation on behalf of the two Governments over a 12-week period ending on 3 April 2007. Everyone with an interest in the new programme is being encouraged to participate and make their views known. Irish Finance Minister, Brian Cowen and Northern Ireland minister David Hanson encouraged all groups and individuals with an interest in the new Programme to submit their views on the proposals. We are fortunate in having this third PEACE Programme. EU PEACE funding, which began some 12 years ago, was always intended as special and time-limited. But because our European partners have recognised the long-term nature of the peace-building process, we can now look forward to seven more years of PEACE funding.

The total amount raised from the two events has not been announced.To promote the theme of breast cancer awareness and education, the chapter invited TCU faculty member and breast cancer survivor Jacque Lambiase to give a testimonial before the start of the event in addition to serving as a judge for the pageant.Lambiase, a professor of Strategic Communication, was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2005, but as of now, she has shown no signs of tumor markers in recent blood tests.“I was flattered by the invitation because a lot of my students are members of this group, and it was really cool to come hang out with them in the evening and see what they do when they are not in the classroom,” Lambiase said.Lambiase added that it is special to see a group work so hard to raise support and awareness for a cause that is close to her.“Through all of my lifetime when I was their age nobody talked about breast cancer, nobody said anything about it, and you couldn’t even use the word breast in any kind of media,” Lambiase said. “Now everybody knows about it, everybody is supportive, and I think it makes the community bigger, better and stronger, and I think it is really great what they do.”Lambiase said she hopes her story with breast cancer will not only educate others about the disease, but also serve as an inspiration to those currently diagnosed with the disease or who have a loved one battling it.“There’s a real big community out there to help you, and there are great fundraising efforts like this one that have made a real big difference in the way women are able to get treatment,” Lambiase said. “I say have hope, go find a great doctor, and go take care of yourself.”For many people in attendance, Lambiase’s message hit home.Roberts said breast cancer is something close to the personal lives of many TCU Zeta Tau Alpha members. Roberts said 50 percent of ZTA members had their lives affected by breast cancer in some capacity.“I actually had everyone at chapter meeting raise their hand at chapter meeting if they had been affected by breast cancer just so everyone could keep that in mind when they’re making decisions and helping with our philanthropy,” Roberts said.Junior Caroline Green was one of those individuals, as her mother recently fought a victorious battle with breast cancer. Green’s mother was diagnosed with the disease in November 2014 but was quick to win the fight, going into remission in February and being declared cancer-free in June.Green said that it was inspiring to see her sorority sisters support her through her mother’s time of trial.“I didn’t know that it was in my path that my mom was going to have breast cancer, but I know that the Lord totally used that and Zeta for my benefit, and all these girls were just there for me no matter what,” Green said. “To see all these girls gather for just a great cause is so incredible.”Zeta members were not the only students at the pageant who had dealt with the hardships of the disease. First-year student Jake Donzelli, a member of the Phi Gamma Delta (FIJI) team that took home the title of Mr. ZTA, said his mother’s best friend died from breast cancer.“I don’t know…it’s so hard,” Donzelli said. “[The pageant] is really a good cause. They’re doing it for a good thing, and they’re raising a lot of money for it.”Roberts said the event is the perfect balance of fun while supporting a serious issue.“It’s so fun to just be in charge of our chapter to raise all this money for this event, but still everyone being aware that it’s for a philanthropy and it’s for a cause,” Roberts said.You can test your knowledge of breast cancer and its effects on the population in the quiz below.Close ReddIt Linkedin TCU social work majors go into the field to help support Fort Worth’s homeless Dean Straka Linkedin Men’s tennis clinches consecutive Big 12 titles with win over No. 4 Baylor Twitter Dean Strakahttps://www.tcu360.com/author/dean-straka/last_img read more

Since then, his details have been posted in the section of a police association website normally reserved wanted persons. This childish attempt to intimidate Kirsch is a violation of civil rights and must stop, Reporters Without Borders says. to go further Help by sharing this information NSO Group hasn’t kept its promises on human rights, RSF and other NGOs say News RSF_en Reporters Without Borders voiced outrage today on learning that the details of WFOS TV-CBS 4 reporter Mike Kirsch have been put back on the “Be On the Look-Out” section of the Broward County Police Benevolent Association’s website (www.bcpba.org) in South Florida. Kirsch has complained about this to the authorities in vain. Reporters Without Borders once again calls for the withdrawal of this wanted notice.___________________________________________________________13.4.06 – TV reporter’s details removed from police association website The details of WFOR TV-CBS 4 reporter Mike Kirsch have been taken down from the “Be On the Look-Out” section of the Broward County Police Benevolent Association’s website (www.bcpba.org) in South Florida. The association had posted his name there in revenge for a controversial report about the South Florida police in which a hidden camera was used.Kirsch told Reporters Without Borders he was pleased with the development but pointed out that a “wanted notice” for him in the form a leaflet continues to circulate in the Miami region police stations where he carried out his investigation.____________________________________________________________07.04.06 – TV reporter’s name posted in police website’s wanted section in retaliation for hidden camera reportReporters Without Borders today condemned a Florida police association for posting the name of WFOR TV-CBS 4 reporter Mike Kirsch in the “Be On the Look-Out” (BOLO) section of its website, which is normally reserved for fugitives from justice and missing persons. This was done after Kirsch used a hidden camera to produce a report about the difficulty of filing a complaint against a police officer in South Florida police stations.“As much as the police have a right to question Kirsch’s use of a concealed camera, it is unacceptable for them to retaliate by circulating his details as he were a dangerous individual,” Reporters Without Borders said. “Aside from the fact that it smacks of childish revenge and tale-telling, it is a violation of civil rights. We therefore call for Kirsch’s name to be taken down from the www.bcpba.org site.”Kirsch produced his report at the beginning of the year with the help of the Police Complaint Centre, a police watchdog group. Equipped with a concealed camera, volunteers tried to file complaints in 38 police stations in Miami-Dade and Broward, two neighbouring counties in South Florida. Most of the time they met with hostility. According to CBS 4, only three police stations cooperated.Kirsch himself showed the footage they had shot to two senior Miami police officials before the report was screened at the start of February.The Broward County Police Benevolent Association quickly reacted by posting Kirsch’s details in the BOLO section of its website. It was temporarily withdrawn when CBS 4’s lawyers protested. But Kirsch’s name and photo were put back on 17 March along with the address and mobile phone number of Gregory Slate, one of the Police Complaint Centre’s volunteers. An accompanying warning says the two men could try to entrap police officers and could be driving a red and black Ford Mustang car, of which the licence number is given.Despite repeated complaints by CBS 4’s lawyers and the Reporters Committee for Freedom of the Press, and enquiries by Reporters Without Borders yesterday, Kirsch’s name is still on the www.bcpba.org site.

Background The direction came in the view of a petition filed by a woman who had approached the High Court for seeking the termination of her 25 weeks old foetus. According to Adv. Sneha Mukherjee, counsel of the petitioner, the child will not be able to survive as the kidneys of the unborn have not been developed. Therefore, the petitioner had asked for a relief in the form of directions from the Court to allow the medical termination of her pregnancy. According to the petitioner, she had found about the Bilateral Agenesis and Anlyaramni syndrome on a later stage after undergoing a sonography at the stage of 25 weeks of her pregnancy. The petitioner had also challenged the constitutional validity of Sec. 3(2)(b) of the Medical Termination of Pregnancy Act, 1971 which provides that only a pregnancy exceeding 12 weeks but not exceeding 20 weeks can be terminated if at least two medical practitioners are of the opinion that such pregnancy would involve a risk to the life or any other substantial risk of the woman or to the child. The order is crucial as the Act allows the termination of pregnancy upto a maximum of 20 weeks, an exception provided under the legislation. However, in another development, the Lok Sabha had recently passed The Medical Termination of Pregnancy (Amendment) Bill 2020 on 17th March, 2020 which provides for the termination of pregnancy upto 20 to 24 weeks in cases of substantial foetus abnormalities. Directions of the Bench The bench directed AIIMS to firstly, constitute a Medical Board for examining the health condition of the woman and secondly, to submit a report before 4th January 2021, the next hearing of the case, to the Court. To this, the bench ordered that “This court considers it apposite to direct Superintendent, All India Institute of Medical Sciences to forthwith constitute a Medical Board to examine the petitioner and submit a report regarding the medical condition of the foetus and the possibility of the foetus not surviving the term of the pregnancy. The report of the Medical Board be submitted on or before 04.01.2021.” Case Name: Jyoti v. Govt of NCT of Delhi & Ors. W.P.

The danger awaiting emergency services

first_imgThe danger awaiting emergency servicesOn 6 Feb 2001 in Personnel Today Ambulancecrews are putting themselves at risk every time they respond to a 999 call.With violence in the NHS predicted to increase, what are trusts doing to fightback? Paramedic Simon Spencer has been having weekly counselling sessions buthe has still had problems sleeping since he was stabbed after responding to a999 call.Spencer,who has been a paramedic for 10 years, had to have 36 stitches following aknife attack a month ago at a flat in east London at 3am. He is still off work.Suchattacks are increasingly common according to a new survey by Health ServiceReport, which shows violent and aggressive incidents against health servicestaff increased by 22 per cent last year (News, 30 January).WendyFoers, director of human resources for the London Ambulance Service NHS Trust,said that on average there is an attack on a member of LAS staff every day.Shesaid, “We are increasingly concerned about the number of attacks on ourcrews. It can range from a push to something serious like the stabbing thathappened to Simon.”Weencourage staff to report all incidents and there has been an increase inreports, but I do think there is also an increase in the number of incidentsour staff are exposed to.”Wewill be recruiting 400 staff next year and we want to be able to advertisewithout people thinking they may well be at risk.” LondonAmbulance Service is developing a number of measures to try to help protectstaff. One of these is its No Excuse publicity campaign aimed at raising publicawareness of the problem. It may also include teaching breakaway techniques,providing protective equipment such as stab vests and identifying addresseswhere there is a known risk of violence.Theambulance service is also trying to forge closer links with the MetropolitanPolice and the Crown Prosecution Service to ensure action is taken againstpeople who attack paramedics.Thesurvey reveals that NHS trusts have responded to the increase in violenceagainst its staff by introducing a variety of measures to combat the risinglevel of violence and aggression.Four-fifthsof those surveyed have installed CCTV, nearly three-quarters now employsecurity guards and 73 per cent have controlled access to certain areas. Onetrust even employs a “management of aggression” adviser tocontinually monitor levels of workplace violence.KeithJohnston, HR director for North Bristol NHS Trust, said, “Anecdotally itwould appear that there is a higher incidence ofviolence and aggression, although the figures may say more about the raisedprofile of violence and aggression as a result of better reporting.”Johnstonadded that all NHS trusts have a zero-tolerance approach to violence andaggression against their staff. North Bristol NHS Trust has installed CCTV inits car parks and some public areas, and staff have been offered attack alarms.It also employs security guards who are on duty 24 hours a day, seven days aweek.GaryTheobald, personnel manager for the Basildon and Thurrock General HospitalsTrust, said, “Although the number of violent incidents across our trusthave reduced over the past year, the incidents that are happening are moreworrying.”MikeGriffin, HR director for Kings College Hospital NHS Trust, said the survey’sfigures reflect the trust’s own statistics. He thinks the increase indicatesimproved reporting of violent and aggressive incidents rather than an actualincrease in numbers.Hesaid, “I am expecting to continue to see a rise in the level of reportedviolent and aggressive incidents as we encourage people to be less willing toput up with that sort of behaviour.”Theoccupational health adviser with the Royal College of Nursing, Carol Bannister,is pleased that trusts are acting positively to try to protect their staff. Shesaid, “I would hope if you look at the same survey in less than two years’time we would start seeing a reduction in this type of incident as the resultsof good practice start to kick in.”ByBen Willmott Previous Article Next Article Related posts:No related photos.

Previous Article Next Article This month’s news in briefHurdles in stress at work claims Osborne argued that her employer had imposed an excessive burden of work onher which was consequently in breach of the implied term of mutual trust andconfidence, entitling her to resign. The EAT considered in detail the Court ofAppeal case in Sutherland v Hatton. The EAT confirmed that in order to succeed in a ‘stress claim’ before atribunal, an employee still needs to overcome the hurdles established in Sutherlandv Hatton and establish the risk of injury was foreseeable, the employer was inbreach of their duty, and that breach of duty caused the harm. To succeed in aconstructive dismissal claim, however, the employee had to go one stage furtherand also establish that the breach was a fundamental breach of the contract ofemployment. Marshall Specialist Vehicles Limited v Osborne EAT Foul and abusive language is breach of trust and confidence Having reported on the Cantor Fitzgerald case, it is worth also drawingattention to this case. The EAT again had to consider whether highly abusivelanguage was sufficient to amount to a fundamental breach of the implied termof mutual trust and confidence. The tribunal, in the first instance, found in favour of Neyrfor andconsidered that the defendant’s language did not amount to a breach. The EATdrew a distinction between what language may be commonly used on oilrigs andwhat may be common in boardrooms. The EAT said the tribunal’s judgment that thelanguage was not a breach of contract was ‘wholly flawed’.

Genetic structure and history of populations of the deep-sea fish Helicolenus dactylopterus (Delaroche, 1809) inferred from mtDNA sequence analysis

first_imgHelicolenus dactylopterus is an Atlantic benthopelagic fish species inhabiting high-energy habitats on continental slopes, seamounts and islands. Partial sequences of the mitochondrial control region (D-loop) and cytochrome b (cyt b) were used to test the hypothesis that H. dactylopterus disperses between continental margin, island and seamount habitats on intraregional, regional and oceanic scales in the North Atlantic. Individuals were collected from five different geographical areas: Azores, Madeira, Portugal (Peniche), Cape Verde and the northwest Atlantic. D-loop (415 bp) and cyt b (423 bp) regions were partially sequenced for 208 and 212 individuals, respectively. Analysis of variation among mitochondrial DNA sequences based on pairwise F-statistics and AMOVA demonstrated marked genetic differentiation between populations in different geographical regions specifically the Mid-Atlantic Ridge (Azores)/northeast Atlantic (Portugal, Madeira) compared to populations around the Cape Verde Islands and in the northwest Atlantic. Some evidence of intraregional genetic differentiation between populations was found. Minimum-spanning network analysis revealed star-shaped patterns suggesting that populations had undergone expansion following bottlenecks and/or they have been colonized by jump dispersal events across large geographical distances along pathways of major ocean currents. Mismatch distribution analysis indicated that Azores and northwest Atlantic populations fitted a model of historical population expansion following a bottleneck/founder event estimated to be between 0.64 and 1.2 million years ago (Ma).last_img read more
