Topics : Djoko, a convict in the high-profile Bank Bali corruption case, was arrested in Malaysia on July 30 in a planned operation by the National Police.He was previously at large for 11 years after fleeing Indonesia a day before the Supreme Court sentenced him to two years in prison and ordered him to pay Rp 546 billion (US$54 million) in restitution.The National Police had also removed three high-ranking officials from their posts for aiding Djoko Tjandra while on the run, including Brig. Gen. Prasetyo Utomo for allegedly issuing a travel letter for Djoko.Responding to Pinangki’s arrest, Indonesian Anti-Corruption Community (MAKI) coordinator Boyamin Saiman said the case saddened him because as a law enforcement official, Pinangki did not set a good example to the public.“We hope the AGO can develop this case and find the parties who provided the funds and promises to Pinangki,” Boyamin said in a video release. (syk) Hari said investigators arrested Pinangki at her residence and the suspect was cooperative during the arrest.“For the time being, she is being detained at the AGO’s Salemba Detention Center. Later, she will be transferred to a women’s detention center in Pondok Bambu [in East Jakarta],” he said on Wednesday as quoted by kompas.com.Read also: AGO looks into possible crimes in prosecutor’s alleged meetings with Djoko Tjandra abroadDeputy Attorney General Setia Untung Arimuladi had removed Pinangki from her post as an official in the planning bureau under the AGO’s junior attorney general for development. The Attorney General’s Office (AGO) has arrested prosecutor Pinangki Sirna Malasari for allegedly accepting bribes in connection with graft convict Djoko Tjandra, who was arrested late last month after being on the run for years.Investigators at the AGO’s junior attorney for special crimes (Jampidsus) made the arrest on Tuesday night after naming Pinangki a suspect in a bribery case. AGO spokesman Hari Setiyono said that Pinangki had allegedly accepted about US$500,000 in bribes, but did not specify who she got it from.The AGO’s supervisory unit previously said that Pinangki had committed an ethics violation by going on nine international trips to Singapore and Malaysia in 2019 without permission, allegedly to meet with Djoko, who was still at large at the time.

Quest Diagnostics y Walmart están trabajando con el departamento para proporcionar pruebas sin costo a los residentes que viven en áreas donde hay menos sitios que realizan pruebas. También se ha sumado otro sitio de realización de pruebas en el condado de Venango, que previamente solo tenía un sitio, lo que eleva a 10 el total de nuevos sitios de realización de pruebas.“Continuamos agregando sitios que realizan pruebas en lugares que resulten convenientes a los residentes de Pennsylvania y aumentamos la capacidad del estado de realizar pruebas”, dijo el Gobernador Wolf. “No queremos que ningún residente de Pennsylvania que necesite una prueba tenga dificultades para encontrar un sitio cerca de su casa que realice pruebas gratuitas”.“Apreciamos el trabajo arduo que realizan los sistemas médicos, las farmacias, los Centros Médicos con Calificación Federal (FQHC, por sus siglas en inglés), las clínicas médicas y otras entidades que realizan pruebas de COVID-19 en todo Pennsylvania”, dijo la Secretaria de Salud, Dra. Rachel Levine. “Cuando establecimos nuestra estrategia de pruebas, queríamos que las pruebas fueran accesibles, adaptables y que estuvieran disponibles y estamos trabajando para cumplir ese desafío. Toda persona que crea que tenga síntomas de COVID-19 puede hacerse la prueba hoy en Pennsylvania”.A partir del 17 de junio, estos sitios estarán abiertos los lunes, miércoles y viernes de 7:00 a.m. a 9:00 a.m. para evaluar hasta 50 pacientes registrados cada día. Se requiere el registro con un día de anticipación.

Custom-built Mirror TVs from Electronic Living are gaining traction with interior designers and architects. See them at The Home Show, proudly supported by The Sunday Mail, running from September 8-10 at the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre.INTERIOR designers are jumping on board new technology that turns your television into a stylish mirror.Electronic Living managing director Damian Cavanagh said the Mirror TV was penetrating the high end market, but due to manufacturing now being done on home soil the mid-range market was also starting to adopt the new trend.“The cost five years ago of Mirror TVs was exponentially greater, we imported the entire product from Germany, which was very expensive,” he said.The company now imports the glass from Europe but manufactures the rest of the product in Australia.“Basically it’s a conventional LED TV and then we custom build the frame and mirror over it,” he said.The technology allows the TV to be hidden behind reflective glass, as you turn the TV on the mirror becomes clear.The assembly time is around two weeks from order and the cost starts at around $4,500 for a 32 inch television, including the mirror.More from newsMould, age, not enough to stop 17 bidders fighting for this home1 hour agoBuyers ‘crazy’ not to take govt freebies, says 28-yr-old investor1 hour agoCustom-built Mirror TVs from Electronic Living.Mr Cavanagh said the Mirror TVs were gaining in popularity because as TVs had become thinner, people had been buying larger models.“So it’s taking up a larger surface area on your wall and people are investing a good amount of money in interior design, so they don’t want the TV to be the dominant feature in the room,” he said.“Architects and designers are in love with it, but end consumers probably haven’t been exposed to it enough yet.“It’s also a great way to display family photos or digital artwork and is good for bedrooms, kitchen splashbacks and bathrooms as well.”Mr Cavanagh said the alternate concealing options were a TV motorised to come out of a cupboard or down from the ceiling, but both options were more expensive than the mirror.“A lot of people are building feature piece fireplace’s in their living spaces, so putting the Mirror TV above the mantel provides a nice mirror look,” he said.Electronic Living specialise in custom technology solutions for homes, with their aim to create a functional smart home, with the technology hidden away.Electronic Living will be exhibiting at The Home Show. The Home Show, proudly supported by The Sunday Mail, runs from September 8 — 10 at the Brisbane Convention & Exhibition Centre.
NZ Herald 27 May 2018Family First Comment: “I do not want New Zealand to become a country where vulnerable dementia sufferers or disabled people are not valued and become even more susceptible to pressure from society to end their lives prematurely. I share in the concerns of Disability Rights Commissioner Paula Tesoriero, who said the bill “undermines the position of disabled and vulnerable members of our community. It devalues their lives and poses significant risk to them.””www.protect.org.nzAs deputy chairwoman of the justice select committee, I’ve been listening to some very well considered submissions on the controversial euthanasia and assisted suicide bill before Parliament.There were 36,000 individuals and groups who wrote to Parliament with their views on the End of Life Choice Bill. Ten per cent have indicated that they would like to be heard in person, which the committee has promised to do.So we have extended the reporting deadline from September to next March. While I will listen attentively and respectfully to everyone’s viewpoint, I remain concerned at the lack of adequate safeguards to protect our most vulnerable.A troubling aspect emerging from the public discussions is the large number of people who say they are in favour of the bill but who admit that they have not actually read it, claiming they don’t care about the detail, they just want to have the option.Have you ever heard of anyone who did not want to die with dignity or be treated with compassion? Rather than being lulled by the wording around this poorly drafted bill, I’ve been urging people to delve deeper – it’s vital to know the details when stakes are so high and protections for the vulnerable so low.Many incorrectly assume the law only applies to the terminally ill, but it would actually licence doctors to end the life of anyone with a “grievous, irremediable condition”.That vague phrase is not an accepted medical or legal one and leaves the door open for coercion and abuse, and could potentially extend to include people with long-term conditions such as arthritis, dementia and diabetes as it has in other countries that have opened the door to euthanasia.READ MORE: https://www.nzherald.co.nz/health/news/article.cfm?c_id=204&objectid=12059324Keep up with family issues in NZ.

Sharing is caring! 8 Views no discussions Share NewsRegional Haiti cholera victims demand UN compensation by: – November 9, 2011 Tweet Share Share Before the 2010 outbreak, Haiti had been cholera-free for nearly a century.The UN is facing claims for hundreds of millions of dollars in compensation from Haitian cholera victims. Several studies have found that cholera was probably brought to Haiti by UN peacekeepers from Nepal. The US-based Institute for Justice and Democracy in Haiti filed the demand on behalf of some 5,000 victims. It says the UN mission in Haiti failed to screen peacekeepers for cholera and allowed untreated waste from a UN base to be dumped into the main river. It also says the UN mission failed to respond adequately to the outbreak. The demand would be looked at by the “relevant parts of the UN system”, spokesman Martin Nesirsky said. The UN was working “to do everything possible to bring the spread of cholera under control, to treat and support those affected by cholera and ultimately to eradicate cholera from Haiti,” he said. More than 6,500 Haitians have died of cholera since the outbreak began in October 2010, according to the Haitian Ministry of Health, and nearly 500,000 have been made ill. ‘Public apology’The Institute for Justice and Democracy in Haiti (IJDH) – a Boston-based human rights group – is demanding $50,000 (£31,000) in compensation for each sick person and $100,000 (£62,000) for each death. As well as individual damages, it also wants a public apology and an adequate nationwide response – including medical care, clean water and sanitation infrastructure. The group says it is prepared to go to court in Haiti or the US if the UN does not respond. “It is time for the UN to step up and do the right thing,” IJDH director Brian Concannon said. “The majority of our petition’s facts come from UN reports. The UN developed much of the law we cite,” he said. “Our clients are challenging the institution to act consistently with what it knows to be true and just”.A UN report on Haiti’s cholera epidemic – drawn up by by independent experts and published in May – found that the outbreak was the result of a “confluence of circumstances” rather than the fault of a group or individual. But it strongly suggested that the disease was introduced by UN peacekeepers from Nepal living on a base where poor sanitary conditions allowed human waste to enter the Artibonite river system. A report by the US Center for Disease Control also linked the outbreak to Nepalese troops. The cholera epidemic provoked widespread demonstrations against the UN mission, which has been in Haiti since 2004.Haitians have little natural resistance to cholera, and the waterborne disease spread rapidly in a country whose already poor infrastructure was shattered by the January 2010 earthquake.

Rabies, while fatal, is preventablewith vaccination, stressed Dr. Marie Jocelyn Te, also of DOH-6’s RabiesPrevention and Control Program. For this year, the region’s requiredtotal number of vials of human vaccine is 149,408 or 37,352 vials per quarter.However, said Mardoquio, the region only got 29,084 vials (27,000 from theDOH central office and 2,000 purchased by its regional office). On top of the rabies vaccine supplyfrom BAI, said Tabuada, said the provincial government purchased 1,300 vialsgood for 13,000 dogs. “The 20 percent is equivalent to52,945 dogs out of the 258,403 total dog population of the province,” saidTabuada. As the disease progresses, morespecific symptoms appear and may include insomnia, anxiety, confusion, slightor partial paralysis, excitation, hallucinations, agitation, salivation,difficulty in swallowing, and hydrophobia (fear of water). The rabies virus primarily affects thecentral nervous system. The early symptoms of rabies in people are similar tothose of many other infection — fever, headache, and general weakness ordiscomfort. “If thereare many rabid dogs, the chances of them biting humans arehigh.Ginatan-aw naton nga maga-increase ang aton rabies-related human deaths,” said Tabuada. ILOILO – The lower the dog rabiesvaccination coverage, the higher the risk of the public being exposed to therabies virus, warned the Provincial Veterinary Office (PVO). “May shortage kita both sa canine and human vaccines. Indi pa gid stableang atonsupply,” said Ame Liz Mardoquio, DOH Region 6’s coordinator for the RabiesPrevention and Control Program. The PVO has so far recorded four suchdeaths this year. “Lastyear ang rabies vaccine allocation from BAI is around 17 vials good for170,000 dogs. This year, BAI released to us only 500 vials good for 5,000dogs,” said Tabuada. The PVO would also lobby for a budgetof P4 million solely for the procurement of rabies vaccines, he added. “Mangayo kami sa mga banwa sangsupport. At least makahatag man sila para mabakunahan ang dogs nila,”said Tabuada. Among Filipinos, dogs account for 98percent of rabies infection, cats account for the remaining two percent,according to DOH. REGIONWIDECONCERN The Philippines is among the top 10countries with the highest incidence of rabies in the world. DOH estimates thatabout 100,000 Filipinos are treated for dog bites and 200 to 300 die fromrabies annually. The low rabies vaccination coverage isdue to the limited vaccine supply from the Bureau of Animal Industry (BAI), heexplained. Tabuada proposed that for year 2020local government units should contribute to the PVO’s rabies vaccine supply. Year 2019 is ending in two months butaccording to Dr. Darel Tabuada of the PVO, their dog rabies vaccinationcoverage is so far at 20 percent only. This year’s dog rabies vaccinationcoverage target is 70 percent, equivalent to 170,000 dogs. Rabies primarily affects warm-bloodedanimals other than man, notably dogs, cats, rats, and bats, but which can betransmitted to humans by infected animals. The rabies virus, which ispresent in the saliva of an infected animal, is passed to a human through abite, or rarely, when the animal’s saliva gets in contact with a scratch orfresh break in the skin. But“tama gid kagamay,” saidTabuada. In 2018, DOH-6 recorded a total of 17human rabies deaths throughout Western Visayas. The dearth of anti-rabies vaccines,however, is not confined to Iloilo province; it is a regionwide concern,according to the Department of Health (DOH) in Western Visayas. Last year, PVO’s dog rabiesvaccination coverage (January to October) was at 69 percent equivalent to173,672 dogs. An infected dog can transmit therabies virus even before it becomes ill, but it will invariably manifest signsand symptoms of rabies including change in behavior such as unprovokedaggressiveness and excitability, paralysis, and hydrophobia within five days,and die within two weeks, after it gets infected./PN
