Euthanasia bill close to MP’s heart

Posted on by

first_imgStuff.co 12 August 2013People who have been self-determining, autonomous adults throughout their lives should have every right to choose when their time is up, MP Maryan Street says.Along with Waikato’s Voluntary Euthanasia Society, Ms Street travelled to New Plymouth yesterday to speak about her End of Life Choice Bill, which is in Parliament’s ballot box.Support towards the bill appeared strong in New Plymouth, with more than 50 people, young and old, turning out to listen and express their views.Only one attendee, with Christian views, stood up to express his disagreement with the document.The bill proposes euthanasia be open to people with terminal illness likely to cause death within 12 months, or to people with an irreversible physical or mental condition that renders their life unbearable – by their own assessment.Ms Street, a former New Plymouth Girls’ High School student, said the topic of euthanasia was a growing issue that had continued to generate much interest over the years.Similar bills have been through Parliament twice before.In 1995, one was defeated 61-29, while in 2003 another missed out by two votes.http://www.stuff.co.nz/taranaki-daily-news/news/9029192/Euthanasia-bill-close-to-MPs-heartlast_img read more

George McGinnis

Posted on by

first_imgGeorge McGinnis attended Indianapolis Washington High School from 1966-69.  His Washington High School team was the 1969 state champions in basketball.  His coach at Washington was Bill Springer who I knew personally because he was a coach at Jennings County before he went to Washinton.  From there he attended one year at Indiana University where he averaged 29.9 points per game and was named an All-American.  George then went pro with the Indiana Pacers.  He led them to back-to-back ABA championships and was the league’s MVP in 1973.Why am I giving you all of these statistics?  It is because it took almost 50 years after his time at Washington High School in Indianapolis and all of these accolades before he was named to the Naismith Basketball Hall of Fame.  Why is this significant?  Four other members of the Indiana Pacers are already members of this Hall of Fame and most of them played after McGinnis.  Bobby Leonard, who was George’s coach while he played for the Pacers thinks it was politics.  Leonard did not divulge what he meant by this.  I saw McGinnis play basketball, and few (if any) Indiana players were better than he was at any level.  (Information for this article came from article that appeared in the Indianapolis Star.last_img read more

Borini released from hospital

Posted on by

first_img When asked if Borini had collapsed, Poyet said: “He was a little bit sick before the game, not even this afternoon, but he wanted to play. “Sometimes you have decisions to make between a manager and a player and we looked at each other and he said he wanted to play. “He did well, he had a couple of opportunities, but at half-time he looked down and weak. We changed him, we did not give him a choice, then the doctor checked him twice and decided to have an extra check in hospital.” On the field Sunderland had looked to be sliding to defeat after being second best for the first hour, with Cardiff leading through goals from Jordon Mutch and Fraizer Campbell. But Steven Fletcher, Borini’s replacement, pulled one back with seven minutes to play beore Jack Colback’s deflected strike in injury time earned the Wearsiders an unlikely point. The on-loan Liverpool striker was involved in two of his side’s best attacking moments during the first half but did not emerge for the second half as Steven Fletcher came on in his place. It later emerged Borini had gone to hospital but Poyet said: “He is feeling better. “We have more information, the doctor called me. He is not going to fly back with us, he will stay down here overnight, but he has been released from hospital. Luckily it is nothing serious. “We were really, really worried as he was really, really sick so the doctor decided rightly to take him to hospital but he has been released now. It was a virus or sickness so no problems.” “My team do not give up,” said Poyet. “We started very bad, we put ourselves in a bad situation, but we were getting back into it at the end of the first half. “I did not expect their second goal, it was a very poor goal to concede, but in the last 25 minutes we were the only team on the pitch, we were knocking on the door and we needed to score with enough time left to go on and get the second. “I am delighted we had a deflected goal go in our favour, as we have had quite a few go against us. ” center_img Sunderland manager Gus Poyet has confirmed striker Fabio Borini has been released from hospital after being taken ill at half-time during the 2-2 draw at Cardiff.
