first_imgTuesday Dec 11, 2018 Five Kiwis, including a former New Zealand Sevens player, have been banned for doping A former New Zealand Sevens player was among five that have been banned from all forms of rugby for two years or more following doping violation allegations brought forward by Drug Free Sport New Zealand (DFSNZ). The offences took place four years ago.ADVERTISEMENTNathaniel Walker last played for New Zealand 7s in 2005 and has since retired from the game, but is now banned for two years alongside four others following an investigation into the operation of the website Clenbuterol NZ in 2014 and 2015.Walker has represened Bay of Plenty while the other players are Sam Barton (North Harbour), Henry Boyhan (Auckland), Paratene Edwards (Hawke’s Bay) and Shaun Laurence (Tasman).After the allegations, Walker admitted to purchasing clenbuterol in 2014.On receiving a two-year suspension backdated from October 9 2017, he suggested that pursuing a retired player in relation to something that happened four years ago was a waste of money.Barton, Boyhan and Edwards received four-year suspensions, and Laurence a two-and-a-half year suspension.Sam Barton – North HarbourADVERTISEMENTThe judicial committee was presented with allegations that Barton purchased and used (or attempted to use) Clenbuterol, which is a prohibited substance under the NZ Sports Anti-Doping Rules, in 2014 and 2015. Barton initially disputed the allegations, but subsequently through a joint memorandum filed by his lawyer and representatives of DFSNZ, he acknowledged the alleged violations and accepted a ban of four years.The Judicial Committee agreed to backdate the start of the suspension to 9 June 2018 (four months prior to the provisional suspension of Barton) to take account of delays in the proceedings being brought.Henry Boyhan – AucklandDFSNZ submitted that Boyhan breached NZR’s anti-doping regulations by trafficking, possessing and using (or attempting to use) the prohibited substances Clenbuterol and Dianabol.Boyhan admitted the allegations but chose not to appear at the hearing. In a written statement he claimed the purchase was for friends to use and not intended for his personal intake.ADVERTISEMENTThe Committee found Bovhan had trafficked (purchased for others) and possessed the banned substances, but the committee was unable to confirm he used these.A four-year ban, the minimum sanction for trafficking, was imposed and backdated to 21 September 2017 (12 months before the provisional suspension) to take account of Boyhan’s timely admissions, and the delays in the start of proceedings.Paratene Edwards – Hawke’s BayThe hearing was told Edwards purchased, and used (or attempted to use) prohibited substances, Sustanon, Dianabol and Clenbuterol, on two occasions in 2014 and 2015. Edwards was notified of the anti-doping violations in May this year but he chose not to appear at the hearing.The Committee found that Edwards had committed the violations and imposed a four-year ban, backdated to 21 September 2017, taking into account his timely admissions and the delay in proceedings.Shane Barry Laurence – TasmanLaurence was charged with purchasing and using (or attempting to use) prohibited substances Clenbuterol, Testosterone Enanthate and Tamoxifen in 2014.Laurence did not dispute the allegations but initially denied that he was playing rugby at the time and was therefore not subject to NZR’s regulations.Photographs provided to the hearing confirmed that Laurence played at least one match in the relevant period and the Committee imposed a suspension of two years and six-months, including six months for aggravating circumstances.The start of the ban was backdated to 26 April 2018, being six months before the provisional suspension was imposed and to take account of the delays in the start of proceedings.Nathaniel Walker – Bay of PlentyThe Judicial Committee heard that Mr Walker had purchased and used (or attempted to use) Clenbuterol in 2014.Walker participated in the hearing, admitted the allegations, but suggested that pursuing a retired player in relation to something that happened four years ago was a waste of money.The Committee suspended Walker for two years, and backdated the sentence by 12 months to 9 October 2017 to take account of his timely admission and delays in proceedings.

Asthma attacks

first_imgBy Pamela TurnerUniversity of GeorgiaDo you or a family member suffer from asthma? According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, about 23 million people, including 6.8 million children, have been diagnosed with asthma. People with asthma experience shortness of breath or difficulty breathing that may be accompanied by coughing, wheezing or tightness in the chest. A severe attack can be life-threatening. Asthma can limit a child’s ability to play, learn or sleep, and result in large financial costs to the family. Each year more than 17 million visits to the doctor’s office or hospital and nearly 2 million emergency room visits are related to asthma. It is the third-ranking cause of hospitalization among children under 15. But, asthma can be controlled by learning to manage or avoid things that trigger an attack. If you are an asthma sufferer, it will take some detective work to figure out your asthma triggers. Once you know what is causing your asthma attacks, you can create a plan and control your exposure. Asthma can be triggered by indoor and outdoor environmental factors. Common asthma triggers are tobacco smoke, dust mites, cockroaches and pets.Tobacco smoke is one of the easiest asthma triggers to control. Simply reduce your exposure and make sure no one smokes in your home or vehicle. Sufficient evidence links dust mites to the development of asthma among sensitive persons. Dust mite control should be part of your asthma plan. Dust mites are microscopic creatures that like to live in humid environments, like your mattress. They can also be found in upholstered furniture and stuffed animals. To discourage dust mites, keep the indoor humidity below 60 percent. Control your exposure to dust mites by covering mattresses and pillows with dust-proof covers and washing blankets and sheets weekly in hot soapy water. This will kill dust mites and their eggs. If your stuffed animals can’t be washed, place them in a large plastic bag and put the bag in the freezer for a few hours. To further remove dust mites, vacuum your carpet and upholstered furniture weekly with a high performance vacuum. Research shows that cockroaches and their droppings can also lead to the development of asthma. So, stop feeding them. Cockroaches need food and water to survive. To discourage cockroaches, don’t drop snacks in the sofa and don’t leave food in bedrooms or on the kitchen counter. Also remove pet food at night. Every two to three days, vacuum or sweep areas that may attract cockroaches. Rather than spraying pesticides inside, use roach traps or gel baits to control cockroaches.Furry pets, like cats and dogs, can also trigger asthma attacks. Keep pets off beds and carpeted areas and bathe them weekly.Other things may trigger asthma attacks. It’s important to create an individual plan to control your asthma triggers. Remember, with a little effort, you can control asthma.

$73 Million Settlement Is Reached in Sex Abuse Suit Involving U.C.L.A. Gynecologist

first_imgElizabeth A. Kramer, a lawyer for the women who filed the lawsuit, said in an email on Monday night that the sexual abuse was pervasive. – Advertisement – – Advertisement – The University of California system has agreed to pay $73 million to more than 5,500 women who were patients of a former U.C.L.A. gynecologist who has been charged with 20 felony counts of sexual assault.The settlement terms were made public on Monday in a class-action lawsuit against the university system and the physician, Dr. James Heaps. The suit was initiated by seven women who say Dr. Heaps sexually abused them during medical examinations. – Advertisement – “The settlement, if approved, will provide real and immediate compensation to thousands of women — no less than $2,500 and up to $250,000, or more in extraordinary circumstances,” Ms. Kramer wrote. “In a case involving widespread sexual misconduct, a class settlement compensates survivors who otherwise would not have come forward to seek relief from the courts, through a respectful and confidential process.”Under the terms of the settlement, the University of California system will pay the entire amount. “The incidents described in the lawsuit reflect alleged conduct that is contrary to our values,” U.C.L.A. Health said in a statement on Monday. “We thank the individuals who came forward and hope that this settlement — which is still subject to court approval — is one small step forward for the patients involved.”- Advertisement – In the settlement, the university system and Dr. Heaps do not admit wrongdoing, which is not uncommon. The settlement in the lawsuit, which was approved by the university system’s Board of Regents, still needs a judge’s approval.The civil suit, which was filed in October 2019, is separate from the criminal case against Dr. Heaps, who was employed at the student health center at the University of California, Los Angeles, from 1983 to 2010. Dr. Heaps, 64, worked at U.C.L.A. Health from 2014 to 2018. He was initially charged in June 2019 and has pleaded not guilty to all charges. A lawyer for Dr. Heaps did not immediately respond to a request for comment on Monday night.U.C.L.A. Health said that an independent review of how the university responds to allegations of sexual misconduct by medical professionals — commissioned by the Board of Regents — was completed this year. “U.C.L.A. is committed to policies and procedures to protect patients,” the university system said.One of the women who filed the lawsuit said that Dr. Heaps made sexual comments about her during an exam while he inserted his fingers into her vagina. The woman said that Dr. Heaps inappropriately touched her genitalia and thighs, and asked her if she was dating anyone and how often she had sex, according to the lawsuit. Another former patient said that Dr. Heaps had “fondled, cupped, and jiggled her breasts in a sexual manner, as if for his own sexual gratification or in an attempt to sexually stimulate her.” The $73 million settlement shared some parallels with a $215 million settlement that the University of Southern California reached with former patients of Dr. George Tyndall, the campus gynecologist accused of sexual misconduct involving hundreds of patients during his decades-long tenure. That settlement was approved by a judge in February.last_img read more
