  • Suicidal teenagers ‘let down’

    first_imgHealthLifestyle Suicidal teenagers ‘let down’ by: – June 26, 2012 Tweet Share Share Sharing is caring!center_img Share 15 Views   no discussions Robbie’s family say there was no follow-up care and he was left alone Suicidal teenagers are not getting the help they need, it’s claimed.Charities, doctors and relatives say it’s because parts of the health service can’t decide if they should be treated as adults or young people.As a result some end up getting no help at all.People under the age of 16 are treated by the Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service (CAMHS) and over-18s are automatically helped by the Adult Mental Health Service (AMHS).However, in the middle are 16 and 17-year-olds who don’t automatically fit into either service.Danielle Hale’s brother Robbie was 16 when he took his own life near Portsmouth last year.She says he got practically no help because he was in a “grey area” and was forgotten about.After Robbie’s first attempt to kill himself, he had a meeting with mental health workers but Danielle says there was no follow-up care.Robbie died four months later.“It makes me really angry,” she said. “He was happy, always up for a bit of banter, a sportsman.”She says the authorities “don’t take it very seriously”.‘Scary’Suicide is the most common cause of death among young men in Britain.Figures show around 800 young people die every year but around 19,000 attempt it.Doctors are advised to treat anyone over 16 as an adult.When young people are no longer eligible for child services there is often a period of no support as they wait to access adult services.They can be put at the back of long waiting lists and for some young people that means they do not get the help they need.Adult services are different from adolescent services with different counsellors and varying treatment plans.Erin Wright from the charity YoungMinds says in CAMHS there is a focus on getting better whereas with adult services the focus is on coping with the problem.She says it can be “scary” moving from one to the other.The General Medical Council (GMC), which represent GPs, says it “would be a help to everyone” if the system was cleared up but they say it’s a difficult age group to deal with.They say some 16-year-olds can be mature and suit adult services better but some are the opposite.The Samaritans says the confusion is making life even more difficult for vulnerable teenagers. If you are having suicidal thoughts, or would like to speak to someone because you are concerned about a friend or relative you can contact the Papyrus Hopeline on 0800 068 4141 or Samaritans on 08457 90 90 90.There is also a guide to the transition between services available from YoungMinds.By Declan HarveyBBC Newsbeatlast_img read more

  • IN Family Farmers Join New Agriculture Council with HSUS

    first_imgJames Benham joined the new Indiana Agricultural Council with HSUS. Photo Courtesy of James Benham.Indiana is the seventh state to join forces with the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) to form an agricultural council, designed to bring local farmers together with the Society to provide guidance and help foster better practices.James Benham, president of the Indiana Farmers Union, has been a farmer in Versailles for the past 40 years.He joined the newly formed council because he says rural family farmers have very little representation at the state level – and a lot of people who are making the rules don’t have agricultural experience.He says education is key to bridging the gaps.“Trying to convey what goes on on a farm and actually what goes on in an urban setting to both sides,” he adds. “And you know, without that communication nothing ever gets done and at the end of the day, nobody wins.“So my job, I think, is to basically just be a voice for both sides.”According to the society, its mission with the state agricultural councils is to receive assistance from local farmers and provide a place where family farmers can gain assistance with marketing opportunities – so the society can highlight farmers who are good stewards for the animals as well as the environment.Other states include Colorado, North Carolina, Iowa, Ohio, Nebraska and Missouri.Benham says there have been many changes in farming over the last few decades.With a push for cheap food, many family farmers are being priced out of business with large commercial operations taking their place.He says the general public has a very different perception of what is really going on with food in this country.He cites many commercials for big companies that show small family farmers.“Then when reality hits and they go down the interstate and you see a feed lot that’s three miles long,” he says. “What the heck’s happened to us?“So, those kind of things need to be discussed and talked about and why we’ve gotten where we’ve gotten.”The environmental impacts from feedlots have been well documented and vary from state to state.Joe Maxwell, a hog farmer and vice president of outreach for the Humane Society of the United States, says between 1997 and 2002, Indiana lost almost 10 percent of its family farmers and since 1978, the U.S. lost 1 million family farmers.He says his group hopes to expand the state councils to include ranchers and farmers in about 20 to 25 states.Indiana News Servicelast_img read more

  • Bravo sent home ahead of Tri-Nations over tweet

    first_img.., given deadline to apologiseBRIDGETOWN, Barbados, (CMC) – West Indies cricket was once again rocked by controversy yesterday when batting star Darren Bravo was controversially sent home ahead of the Tri-Nations Series in Zimbabwe, after the West Indies Cricket Board sensationally cancelled his match/tour contract over a contentious tweet deemed “disparaging” to president Dave Cameron.And in a letter to the player dated November 11, the board also gave Bravo until 4 pm (Eastern Caribbean time) on Saturday to apologise for his actions and to remove the offending tweet from his Twitter account.Failure to do so, the WICB said, could result “in further disciplinary action, including referral to the WICB disciplinary committee.”Bravo, who was part of the camp in Potchefstroom, did not travel to Harare with the remainder of the squad on Saturday and instead headed for his native Trinidad and TobagoA subsequent WICB release yesterday said Bravo had been dropped “due to inappropriate and unacceptable behaviour, which is contrary to his contractual obligations to the WICB.”This was in reference to Bravo’s outburst via online social networking service, Twitter, when he slammed Cameron for comments critical of his recent batting performances.Speaking on regional sports channel, SportsMax, earlier in the week, Cameron said Bravo had been offered only a Grade C retainer contract because of his “poor performance” and declining averages.“His averages in the last two years have been declining, so what do you do? Reward poor performance or do you encourage him to get better?” Cameron said.He continued: “If you continue to keep giving him an A contract then what is the motivation to get better? He has been on an A contract and he hasn’t done well.”In response, Bravo tagged Cameron via his Twitter handle, @davec51, as he tweeted: “You hav been failing 4 d last 4yrs. Y don’t u resign and FYI I’ve neva been given an A contract. Big idiot.”Bravo’s caustic response prompted a formal letter from the WICB, informing the player that his comments constituted a breach of the terms of his match/tour contract and that the contract would also be cancelled.The letter, a copy of which was obtained by CMC Sports, told Bravo his tweet had “disparaged” the WICB president and was “contrary to your contractual obligations to the WICB.”“We would expect as a senior West Indian cricketer that you would recognise that your decision to vent your frustrations online, as well as to denigrate the president of the WICB, was inappropriate and unacceptable, as well as contrary to your contractual obligations to the WICB,” said the letter, which was signed by Director of Cricket, Richard Pybus.“In particular, we draw your attention to your agreement (in clause 4.7.2.2 of your match/tour contract) not to make any statement in or to any form of media (which shall include, without limitation, print media, television, radio, internet or any social networking media), or any other public statement, which would bring yourself, WICB or any official or authorised representative of WICB or the game of cricket into disrepute and your agreement to use all such media in a responsible manner.“In addition, clause 9.3.1 of your match tour contract provides that in default by you in respect of your obligations under the contract, WICB may in its absolute discretion cancel this contract by written notice to the cricketer.“In light therefore of your breach of your obligations to WICB in clause 4.7.2.2 of your match/tour contract, this letter serves as written notice that your match/tour contract is hereby cancelled.In addition to ending the player’s involvement in the tour, the WICB also ordered Bravo to “immediately remove” the offending tweet from his Twitter account and to issue an apology via the same medium.“We also request that you immediately remove the highlighted tweet from your account and desist from tweeting about WICB officials in the future,” the letter said.“We further request that you acknowledge, via your Twitter account, the impropriety of your actions and your recognition that your decision to publicly express your views on social media was not conduct befitting of a West Indies cricketer.“I strongly discourage you from continuing to use Twitter or other social networking sites in a manner which might cause embarrassment to the West Indies cricket team, the West Indies Cricket Board or any officials of the West Indies Cricket Board which can potentially bring the game into disrepute.“I ask that you also note that any further such action on your part, including failure to comply with our request above by 4 pm, Eastern Caribbean time on November 12, 2016, may result in further disciplinary action, including referral to the WICB disciplinary committee.”Bravo has been replaced in the squad by fellow Trinidadian Jason Mohammed while leg-spinner Devendra Bishoo has been called up to replace off-spinner Sunil Narine, who has withdrawn from the party for “personal reasons.”West Indies face hosts Zimbabwe and Sri Lanka in the tournament which runs from November 14-27.last_img read more

  • For second year, Springfest and Relay conflict

    first_imgSpringfest and Relay for Life, arguably the two biggest events of the spring semester, have been scheduled for the same day for the second year in a row, leaving organizers concerned about the attendance for both.Show time · Last year’s Springfest, held on McCarthy Quad, also coincided with Relay for Life, the fundraiser held on Cromwell Field. – Daily Trojan file photoSpringfest is an annual free concert organized by Program Board and held at McCarthy Quad. This year, the popular rapper T-Pain will headline the event. Relay for Life is an annual 24-hour walkathon at Cromwell Field that raises money for cancer research. Both events, which will be held April 10, tend to draw a large number of people.“We didn’t want them to be conflicting,” said Erica Worthington, a junior majoring in psychology who is the relay coacher for USC Relay for Life. “We wanted people to enjoy both of these events on their own.”Melissa Park, a senior majoring in industrial and systems engineering and a co-chair of USC Relay for Life, said she is worried about the impact this year’s headliner might have on Relay for Life.“I understand the draw that T-Pain has, and it’s a phenomenal thing because not many campuses can boast that they bring artists like that, but it’s too bad that people have to make a choice for one or the other,” Park said.Richie Pizano, director of the concerts committee for Program Board, said he would prefer the events not be held on the same day but noted that there could be a positive side to the situation.“Having both on the same day does hinder both events,” Pizano said. “But at the same time, not everyone is at one event at the same time. If students are already on campus, it’s easy to move back and forth, so it does help.”The events were held concurrently last year after event organizers mistakenly booked the same day.“Last year, we didn’t really know that they were on the same day,” Worthington said. “We didn’t think about Springfest and were focused on planning [Relay for Life]. We found out the month before.”This year, organizers had hoped to better coordinate the two events, but they failed to communicate clearly with each other and the two events are once again scheduled for the same day.“It was more individual efforts,” Worthington said. “We didn’t contact Program Board first semester, but we looked it up online.”Pizano said the date for Springfest has been set since May.“I think the two parties didn’t communicate because it just didn’t occur to us [in May],” Pizano said. “It was pure coincidence.”Worthington said Relay for Life organizers looked up the Springfest date online before choosing a date for the walkathon but thought Springfest was a different weekend.By the time the two groups realized their events would coincide, it was too late.“We use the track, and we have to find time when the track team has an away meet. We also work around Swim with Mike and Songfest,” Worthington said.Pizano said it’s very difficult to reschedule an event on McCarthy Quad after a date has been booked because it’s a very popular venue.Beyond attendance, Park said she is concerned about the possibility of Springfest’s main performance conflicting with Relay for Life’s luminaria ceremony, when participants light candles and honor those who have battled cancer.The luminaria ceremony, Park said, is typically one of the most moving parts of the event, and she does not want it to be interrupted by music from Springfest.Last year, organizers for both groups coordinated so that no performers would be on during the ceremony, but they have yet to reach any kind of agreement this year.Many students said they think it is unfortunate that the two events conflict again this year.“I would definitely go to both if they were on separate days, but because Springfest has T-Pain, which I feel is a bigger draw; I’ll probably go there instead,” said Sommer Sorensen, a junior majoring in anthropology.Brooke Nixt, a sophomore majoring in business administration, agreed.“It’s too bad that the events are conflicting because Relay for Life is such an important cause,” she said. “I feel like Springfest might draw people away.”In the future, organizers for both events said they would communicate to prevent double-booking the same day.“People do bring it up, and it’s unfortunate, but I can’t do anything about it,” Pizano said. “In the future, the two parties should start communicating. We continuously book a year in advance, so Relay should check with us.”Park agreed.“It’s an unfortunate occurrence,” she said. “There should be more awareness about when each event is taking place.”last_img read more

  • Fan Laws follow Reynolds’ man lead

    first_img“When it comes to beer, sharing is caring.You poke it, you own it.Crushing a beer can on your forehead is barbaric.”–Burt ReynoldsBurt Reynolds is not just a man with a mustache that transcends decades who also used to be the sex icon of America. Nay. He is also the lead authority on what it takes to be a man. Above are just three of the Man Laws that Burt, and the rest of the Men of the Square Table, have scribed for the good of the entire male species.But nobody is perfect (just look at Jets fans), and even Burt has overlooked a few crucial commandments, most notably within the realm of sports. Burt cannot be held responsible to create all of our laws for men — we need to exercise our civic duty and help Burt out!So, here are some much needed Man Laws, with a focus on the sporting side of our lives — Fan Laws, if you will — that need to be penned before this ad campaign goes the way of the Taco Bell Chihuahua.Fans shall not sport dueling logosHow often has this happened to you: You’re walking down the street, reading your Sports Illustrated and carrying a large cup of Dunkin’ Donuts coffee, when you suddenly see an oncoming pedestrian who is wearing a North Carolina hat with a Wisconsin shirt and an old-school Chicago Bulls jacket.Hopefully, you shake your head and sigh.This rule is broken more often than Pam Anderson’s wedding vows and can no longer be allowed to stand.If it were fashionable, it might be okay, but as any Project Runway veteran will tell you, sports apparel is almost never fashionable. Take the Oregon Ducks, for example.No, sports apparel is meant so that a fan may truly wear his emotions on his sleeve, chest and, if need be, even underwear. That means dueling logos are a no-no.Like hockey penalties, there are levels to the infraction:Minor: For example, wearing a Wisconsin hat and a Green Bay jersey. The two teams almost overlap geographically, and so do the fan bases. Still, you have to pick one or the other. Just go Badger on Saturday and Packer on Sunday. Not that difficult.Major: Wearing a Yankees, Red Sox, Cubs, Duke Blue Devils or North Carolina Tar Heels hat with any other logo. Unless you were born a fan of one of these teams and have been through the fire, wearing any of these team’s apparel with any other is akin to being branded like a goat or cow. It’s just joining the herd, see Law below for further detail.Unforgivable: Wearing an Ohio State hat and Michigan sweatshirt. Rivals are rivals for a reason. If you are caught violating this cardinal sin of fandom, your fan rights are revoked until you can prove you have an appreciation of what sports truly are.Fan Law.No rooting for the Yankees, Red Sox or LakersUnless you were born in New York, Boston or L.A., you’re bandwagoning. Just stop while you still have a shred of dignity left.Fan Law.No waving at the camera behind home plateGetting seats behind home plate is a privilege — unless you are at a Marlins game, in which case it is more of a guarantee, since they average a couple dozen fans per contest — and should be appreciated. How many opportunities will you have in your life to actually hear a 97-mph fastball be delivered from pitcher to catcher? About as often as a Sumo wrestler gets to see his toes. The moment should be cherished.But some fools insist on waving to their friends on television while talking on their cell phones. That foul alone is reason enough to discuss removing the netting from behind home plate. If a pitcher hits a fan committing said foul, it’s an automatic out.Fan Law.Only men at the bachelor party (excepting the entertainment, of course)OK, this isn’t truly sports related, but it is an issue that needs to be addressed.Unreasonably, some women feel compelled to break up this fundamental male bonding tradition. It’s every man’s birthright to not only have a bachelor party, but one with only other men, with the obvious exception to the guests of honor.Ladies, this is why bachelorette parties exist. If you’re that upset about a dude doing his thing before walking down the aisle, go one-up him in Vegas.Fan Law.No rooting against No. 16 seedsSome UConn fans had the gall to boo Albany last year, while they were down double-digits in the NCAA Tourney — only in Philadelphia, where Santa Claus was booed out of town.Sixteen seeds are like Little League teams. You cheer for them no matter what. If you somehow can’t beat them, just boo yourself.Fan Law.No hating on Chad JohnsonThis one goes out to all the stodgy ol’ coots that are the NFL owners and any other geezer that has a problem with Johnson.You can’t cover 85 — just face it, you need to stop hating on him. His end zone celebrations and general enthusiasm for the game help the NFL immensely. He is what is right with pro football and competition in general, not what is wrong with it, so stop crying like Paul Davis (or like a sorority girl about Facebook). Sure he talks smack, but he always backs it up. Plus, his golden grill and blonde Mohawk make his personal appearance far and away the best in the business.Fan Law.Sports are sports, the rest is competitionAll sports are competition, not all competition is sport. A sport is any competition that has a clear and decisive winner. That means all competitions involving judges are automatically not a sport.Chess: sport. Figure skating: Not a sport. Darts: sport. A boxing match that does not end in a knockout: not a sport. Bowling: sport. Gymnastics: not a sport.You get the picture.Fan Law.Wear team colors to gamesHow Packer fans will wait 75 years for season tickets and then show up to a game in a blaze orange jacket is just mind-boggling. It’s like waiting in line for two hours to get into Shula’s Steakhouse and then just having a soda and a side salad.Fan Law.Write ’em down, pin ’em to a wall or fridge; these laws are all rules to live by, and I’m sure I speak for Burt when I say that. I’m just glad that I could give ol’ Mr. Reynolds a day off and do my part to reward the real man’s man himself, Burt Reynolds. What a man, what a mustache.Here’s to you, Burt. You earned it.Dave is a senior majoring in English and journalism. If you have any Fan Laws or Man Laws that need to be immortalized on The Badger Herald website, or just in Dave’s e-mail box, write him at dmcgrath@badgerherald.com.last_img read more

  • John: Against Cardinals, ever-improving Orange defense will face new challenge

    first_img Facebook Twitter Google+ Doug Hogue doesn’t spend a lot of time dwelling on the numbers. Not at this point, just 10 weeks into the season. To Hogue, the fact that Syracuse enters the weekend as 13th-ranked defense in the country is a trivial piece of information. It doesn’t at all speak to where the Orange hopes to be at season’s end. And focusing on it doesn’t do anything but bring complacency. And that’s not something the Orange can have with the nation’s No. 5 rusher coming to town on Saturday in Bilal Powell. ‘Personally, I never really pay attention to those things,’ Hogue, a senior linebacker, said of the defensive ranking. ‘We just have to keep it up and keep building. I feel as though we have yet to play our best defense. We’re going to have to keep improving.’ Hogue’s mentality isn’t just his own, either. It’s one that is shared by his teammates, all the way up to SU head coach, Doug Marrone. Together, the Orange defense collectively understands that each week is a new obstacle to overcome. A new team looking to exploit what has steadily become the rock upon which SU’s season relies.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text And as the Orange prepares to take the field against a much improved Louisville offense Saturday in the Carrier Dome, that mindset won’t change. Facing an offense that features one of the premier running threats in the country in Powell, the Orange can’t get caught up in what it accomplished last week or the week before. For them it’s another new challenge. It’s another opportunity to continue improving. Gone is the ‘swag’ and brash trash-talking mentality we saw from the defense in the first few weeks. Now it’s all business. Because it didn’t really matter that the Orange defense had shut down Akron and South Florida on the road earlier this season. Directly following each of those two games, that feeling of complacency set in, leading to embarrassing performances against Washington and Pittsburgh, SU’s only two losses of the season. Now three weeks removed from that loss to Pitt, the same mentality that accompanied the Orange on the road in impressive wins against West Virginia and Cincinnati must remain Saturday against Louisville. Though Powell — who leads the Big East in rushing — is questionable for the game with a swollen right knee, the Cardinals have enough offensive weapons to exploit the Orange if SU takes the game lightly. Perhaps that’s why Hogue and his teammates are staying grounded. Despite what was accomplished last week or the week before, the approach remains the same: Don’t look back, just ahead. Focus on the task at hand. ‘It’s all about us maturing each week,’ SU strong safety Shamarko Thomas said. ‘The Pitt game just made us a tougher defense. It brought us together and taught us that we need to communicate better and know our roles out there. And we’ve been doing that each week ever since. ‘We had some miscues against Pitt. But it ultimately helped us become an even better defense. That game helped us mature.’ And after holding WVU and Cincy scoreless in the second half of each of the last two games, the defensive unit only appears to be getting better with each week. That’s the only thing that interests Hogue and his teammates right now. The numbers and past accomplishments are virtually meaningless to this group. The defense has evolved from the trash-talking unit that had that ‘swag’ at the beginning of the season. Now, after each win, it’s simply on to the next one. ‘Every week we just try to forget about what we’ve accomplished the previous game,’ defensive end Mikhail Marinovich said. ‘This week it’s a new challenge. We face a good offense, and despite what is behind us or ahead of us, this is our focus.’ Perhaps that’s why Hogue and the rest of his unit aren’t paying attention to the numbers. Despite what this defense has done in previous weeks, the biggest challenge for the Orange is the one just around the corner. Regardless of whether or not Powell is lining up in the backfield.

  • Mikel López de Torre: Jdigital – Spanish gambling has been served an unnecessary blow

    first_imgShare Related Articles StumbleUpon Share Mikel López de Torre, President of Spanish online gambling trade association  Jdigital has fired back at the government fast-tracking agreed measures of Spain’s Royal Decree on advertising.To the surprise of betting incumbents, on Wednesday Spain’s Council of Ministers approved a package of temporary measures supporting health networks and emergency services battling the COVID-19 pandemic.Amongst the measures branded as a ‘social shield’ protecting citizens, ministers had approved a provision fast-tracking the Royal Decree’s advertising restrictions to commence immediately.The swift policy enforcement will see the Royal Decree’s flagship ‘betting advertising window ‘immediately implemented, restricting gambling adverts to be broadcasted from 1-5 am across all Spanish communities.Speaking to SBC, López de Torre brands the government’s actions as ‘another strong blow for a sector that is already suffering notably the effects of the coronavirus crisis.’López de Torre depicts the dire marketplace realities faced by Spanish online incumbents trying to maintain their businesses afloat under unprecedented conditions.“In recent weeks, have seen revenues of online gaming operators drop notably as a result of the cancellation of almost all international sports competitions, as sports betting represents over 50% of the turnover of online gambling in our country.” López de Torre adds“A decline in income adds up to the contraction that the sector had been experiencing in recent months, according to the latest official data from DGOJ (Directorate General for the Regulation of Gambling). Specifically, a 3.23% less GGR (Gross Gambling Revenue) was generated compared to the third quarter of 2019, according to the latest DGOJ’s quarterly report on the Online Gaming Market.”Beyond unnecessary, López de Torre lambasts Spanish ministers for not evaluating the economic consequences of attaching gambling measures to a public health decree.COVID-19 sees all Spanish industries facing an uncertain future, as Jdigital underlines the negative wider impact the government’s decision will have on Spain’s media owners, publishers and broadcasters unable to finish vital advertising contracts.López de Torre details disappointment at a new government that had promised to listen and collaborate with Jdigital in developing Spainish online gambling standards, but had indicated no prior warning to its drastic actions.“Jdigital has placed special emphasis as an industry on the confinement decreed as a prevention against the spread of the coronavirus, and we are appealing to the responsibility of both operators in their commercial communications as of online gamblers.”“Our industry is highly regulated and we have specific control and security measures to protect the most vulnerable groups and we are convinced that the operators that are part of Jdigital are respecting these principles that govern the industry.” Winamax maintains Granada CF sponsorship despite bleak Spanish outlook August 19, 2020 Andrea Vota – Jdigital’s challenge of Spanish restrictions is led by logic and rationale August 13, 2020 Submit Martin Lycka – Regulatory high temperatures cancel industry’s ‘silly season’ August 11, 2020last_img read more
