It was forced to issue two profit warnings in November 2009 and January 2010 due to delays in UK and US government contract decisions. Tags: NULLlast_img read more

Chaplains navigate Canada’s ‘medical assistance in dying’ laws

first_img Rector Bath, NC Assistant/Associate Rector Morristown, NJ Director of Music Morristown, NJ [Anglican Journal] The Supreme Court of Canada ruled in 2015 that parts of the country’s Criminal Code that prohibited medically assisted deaths were in violation of the Charter of Rights and Freedoms. Since June 2016, medical assistance in dying (MAiD) has been legal in Canada for adults over the age of 18 with a “grievous and irremediable medical condition.” The government of Canada reported in April 2019 that at least 6,749 Canadians had accessed MAiD since the legislation was enacted, with MAiD deaths accounting for around 1 percent of deaths in Canada during each of the government’s reporting time frames.Like doctors, nurses and other front-line health care workers, hospital chaplains and spiritual care providers see the system up close — with all its flaws, oversights and messy details, as well as its beauty and hope. Chaplains may be there from the first time a patient considers MAiD to when the family has been led from the room after the procedure.As MAiD becomes an ever more available option, for many spiritual care practitioners it has become an important and sometimes difficult aspect of ministry.Read the full article here.

In the North all buildings for living have to be made in an advanced way due to the ever-contrasting weather. Additionally, the houses have to be properly heated with external energy more than half of the year’s course. Therefore producing smaller homes would bring about a considerable economical and ecological benefit. Today the construction activity stands alone for more than one third of total global energy and material consumption, well exceeding that of all traffic and transport.Save this picture!DrawinsThis should be a crucial question especially in Scandinavia, where people, in accordance with their growing wealth, possess larger and larger houses. And in most cases, this in addition to a second home called a summer house or a cottage.Boxhome is a 19 square meter dwelling with four rooms covering the basic living functions: kitchen with dining, bathroom, living room and bedroom.Save this picture!Courtesy of Rintala Eggertsson Architects Firstly, the project focuses in the quality of space, material and natural light, and tries to reduce unnecessary floor area. The result is a dwelling where the price is only 1/4 of the price of any same size apartment in the same area. Boxhome is a prototype building, yet the same attitude could be taken further to bigger family housing and consequently to work places.Save this picture!© Ivan Brodey Secondly, it seems that we have given the right to produce our homes to uncontrollable groups of actors who seek mostly maximum income. The basic need to have one’s family protected has become a great business adventure. Making a simple house, after all, is perhaps not such a difficult task that it should be totally left for this kind of forces. Moreover, meeting the official construction restrictions and laws usually seems to equal to the using of the building industry products and services, thus limiting the possibilities of a real change and development into minimum.Save this picture!AxonometricThirdly, in Western societies at the moment we are enjoying the highest standard of living ever know to human kind. At the same time we are fully informed of the results of our culture of consumerism. Therein lays the greatest paradox: We are forced to actively forget the real reality to be able to enjoy the facade of excess we have created around us. Finally, and most importantly, the goal has been to make a peaceful small home, a kind of urban cave, where a person can withdraw to, and whenever wished, forget the intensity of the surrounding city for awhile.Save this picture!© Ivan BrodeyProject gallerySee allShow less2014 RIBA London AwardsArchitecture NewsSchool of Economics and Business Diego Portales University / Rafael Hevia + Rodrigo …Selected Projects Share Area:  19 m² Area:  19 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project 2007 photographs:  Ivan BrodeyPhotographs:  Courtesy of Rintala Eggertsson Architects, Ivan Brodey+ 17 Sharecenter_img 2007 Photographs Year:  Architects: Rintala Eggertsson Architects Area Area of this architecture project Houses CopyAbout this officeRintala Eggertsson ArchitectsOfficeFollowProductsWoodSteel#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesOtherSmall ScaleOsloHousesNorwayPublished on May 06, 2014Cite: “BoxHome / Rintala Eggertsson Architects” 06 May 2014.

Opposition journalist beaten unconscious on street near his home

first_img News April 28, 2006 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Opposition journalist beaten unconscious on street near his home KazakhstanEurope – Central Asia News Receive email alerts to go further читать на русскомReporters Without Borders today condemned the severe beating that journalist Kenzhegali Aytbakiyev of the opposition weekly Ayna-Plus received on 23 April from a group of about 10 people on the street a few metres from his home in a suburb of capital.He told Reporters Without Borders that he lost consciousness for about three hours after being pushed to the ground and repeatedly kicked. After coming round, he managed to stagger home. He has a fractured skull and jaw and will have to undergo an operation. His assailants took no money or other item of value from him.“The attack on Aytbakiyev was extremely brutal and speaks volumes about the way opposition journalists are treated in Kazakhstan,” the press freedom organisation said. “The authorities must find his assailants and give him protection. The independent press was gagged all last year to ensure President Nursultan Nazarbayev’s reelection with 90 per cent of the votes in December.” Aytbakiyev was taken to hospital the day after the attack. He was questioned there by the municipal police, who took a statement and opened an investigation. He can still barely speak after four days in intensive care and the doctors say his condition is serious.Aytbakiyev has worked for nearly eight years as a journalist. Ayna-Plus weekly was closed by the authorities this month because of its coverage of the so-called Kazakhgate corruption scandal, in which the opposition claims that President Nazarbayev is implicated. As a result of a suit accusing the newspaper of libelling Nazarbayev in its reports about electoral fraud recognised by the Organisation for Security and Cooperation in Europe, a court ordered its compulsory liquidation, ending months of disputes with the authorities.Ayna-Plus was originally launched by opposition members in 1998 as the Dat project (taking its name from the Kazakh for “the last word before death”). It evolved into a newspaper which had to change its name three names because of a series of compulsory liquidations. It became SolDat, then Juma-Times and finally Ayna-Plus, which lasted only two months.Aytbakiyev has been attacked on the streets twice before. The first time was in 2002, when he was with a colleague, Bakhytgul Makimbay, who was also attacked. The second time was last month, when he was attacked by a group of youths for no apparent reason. Regional newspaper editor harassed after investigating real estate scandal Kenzhegali Aitbakiyev is still hospitalized in a serious condition after being beaten senseless on 23 April.He has been attacked more than once before and his newspaper has repeatedly been closed down. ReportersWithout Borders condemns the constant harassment of the opposition media.читать на русском Organisation News KazakhstanEurope – Central Asia February 5, 2021 Find out more Reporters prevented from covering Kazakh parliamentary elections Kazakh reporter accuses police of attacking her January 15, 2021 Find out more Follow the news on Kazakhstan RSF_en News Help by sharing this information October 30, 2020 Find out morelast_img read more
