They feel theres an unreasonable effort to control them Watchdog concern over

first_img 12,410 Views Sep 3rd 2019, 5:33 PM Tuesday 3 Sep 2019, 5:33 PM These people have told me of feeling that there has been an unreasonable effort to control them, and when they have not complied, some people have apparently been threatened that use of equipment or support hours will either be reduced or withdrawn.Gath also noted in her report that communication issues between the HSE and families remains problematic. ComplaintsToday’s report shows there was an increase in the number of complaints or concerns received about the care of vulnerable adults in HSE-funded services last year.In 2018, 206 concerns or complaints were received, compared to 196 in 2017. However, there was a reduction in the number of safeguarding concerns – down from 90 in 2017 to 76 in 2019.The majority of concerns and complaints related to issues with disability services – 70% of all concerns received. Some 11% of concerns and complaints related directly to Mental Health Services (both hospital and day-care services) throughout the country.The type of concerns raised with the Confidential Recipient included:Safeguarding (76 complaints in 2018, down from 90 in 2017)Client placement/planning (34 in 2018, up from 22 in 2017)Access to equipment (10 in 2018, up from five in 2017)Level of staff to support client (30 in 2018, up from five in 2017)Financial charges (three in 2018, down from five in 2017)Staff behaviour (20 in 2018, down from 28 in 2017)The report highlights a number of case studies that were resolved during the period in question.One of the cases relates to a woman with severe intellectual disabilities who, after back surgery and a tracheostomy, and was living in an acute hospital.The service she had previously used was unable to take her back because of the complexity of her medical care and her family were not in a position to take her home.Gath’s office was notified to the woman’s case in early 2018, today’s report notes. A trip to visit her showed me she had no life outside her single hospital room. She was spending her days thumping the padded sides of her bed. That appeared to be her only activity. Her intellectual disability meant she could not understand television, and had no activities to do during the day.“Needless to say she was having behavioural problems. She had someone employed to sit with her all day – but no activities except for the occasional walk around the corridors in a wheelchair in the evening when the hospital was quiet.”After bringing the woman’s case to the attention of the HSE, she was transferred to a residential placement where, today’s report notes, “she has settled well”. Gath said her office had dealt with almost 750 formal concerns or complaints about healthcare services since it was established in December 2014. Image: Shutterstock/Minerva Studio Tweet thisShare on FacebookEmail this article Image: Shutterstock/Minerva Studio A HSE WATCHDOG has criticised the health service for denying people with disabilities a role in the decisions made about their care. According to the fourth annual report by the independent Confidential Recipient for Vulnerable Persons Leigh Gath, some people have said they were threatened with having equipment or support hours reduced or removed after expressing a desire to have a role in the care provided by health services. Gath’s role is to receive and examine concerns and to provide help and advice to vulnerable adults, or anyone concerned about a vulnerable adult in a HSE-funded service.In her report, Gath criticised the HSE’s use of the medical model of disability instead of the social model which allows for more inclusiveness for people with disabilities.“In some instances [people] are apparently being forced to use their supports or equipment as the HSE sees fit,” Gath said. This excludes people with disabilities “having choices in their lives because it may be deemed ‘risky’ or not necessary,” Gath said. “The concerns I have seen on this are coming from adults with physical and/or sensory disabilities who are capable of making their own decisions,” Gath said in her report. center_img Short URL By Cónal Thomas Share50 Tweet Email1 https://jrnl.ie/4794145 ‘They feel there’s an unreasonable effort to control them’: Watchdog concern over HSE treatment of people with disabilities In 2018, 206 complaints or concerns were received by Confidential Recipient for Vulnerable Persons. 8 Comments last_img read more

Bungie brings back first Destiny weapon Kvostov as Exotic in Rise of

first_img“An ancient instrument of war, battered and worn – but it still fires true. Perhaps it’s been waiting for you.”If you can remember way back to the first moment you picked up Destiny two years ago, the very first weapon that your Ghost pointed you to was the Khvostov 7G-02. It was your first taste of firepower, an auto-rifle that was incredibly low-powered, but of course you didn’t know that at the time. You simply grabbed it and fought off your enemies, and played with it until something better came along, and threw it aside. A gun with no perks quickly grows forgotten in the weapon-laden wonderland of Destiny, but there was still something about that first gun…Now Bungie has revealed that it knows people love this weapon, and so it will be returning in the upcoming Rise of Iron expansion. It won’t just be the same gun either, it will be a new exotic that pays tribute both to the old-school feel of the rifle and the nostalgia gamers felt to their very first gun.“We really wanted to pay homage to that,” said lead designer Ryan Paradis in a recent interview. “Let’s tug at the heartstrings a little bit. Let’s give this gun a little bit more fiction and purpose. It’s one of the true military weapons we have in the game that really feels like an assault rifle, so it was kind of neat for us to bring that back.” So not only will the Krovstov be returning, it will be the motivation behind an entire new quest line in the expansion. Similar to last year’s Sleeper Simulant, which was only unlockable through a long quest chain which required players to find fusion rifle relics, Khvostov weapon parts will be found in the new Plaguelands zone. These will be randomly hidden in chests or given out as rewards in the Archon’s Forge Battle Arena. Thankfully this time you’ll only need one (not the four that the Sleeper Simulant required) and when you hand it over to a new quest giver the quest line will kick off. It will culminate in you gaining the brand new upgraded Khvostov.Players who have somehow hung on to their starting weapon for this long time (or those that start up a new character) can simply scrap it for parts to get the parts.Besides a new barrel and a spitshine the gun looks the same, but the new perks add a whole lot more. Its new form will be customizable beyond most any weapon in the game. You can choose perks that turn the auto rifle into burst, semi-auto, or fully automatic, and even change the rate of fire when it’s automatic to something more akin to a chaingun.There’s also a slot for ornaments, which is a brand new feature in Rise of Iron. Presumably it will work like Chroma for armor, and allow you to activate it and change the way the gun looks.“Most players don’t gravitate towards auto-rifles, so one of the cool features is that node selection for firing,” says Paradis. “That’s the first time we’ve really fiddled with that, but it kind of makes it a gun for all occasions.” Destiny’s Rise of Iron expansion launches on on September 20. It will feature a brand new area to explore (the Plaguelands) as well as new enemies, a new level cap, tons of new weapons, gear, quests, and most importantly, a new Raid.last_img read more

Malaysia Votes for Worlds First AntiFake News Legislation

first_img“This law aims to protect the public from the spread of fake news, while allowing freedom of speech as provided for under the constitution,” Law Minister Azalina Othman Said told parliament.“This bill is a weapon to close the truth so that what is false can be upheld as true, and what is true can be reversed as false,” said legislator Lim Guan Eng. “This is something very dangerous for our country.”For the last three years, political debate in Malaysia has focused on the bankruptcy of 1MDB, a state-backed investment fund, set up by Prime Minister Najib Razak. Discussion was further inflamed when a mysterious payment of some $731 million was discovered in the personal bank account of Najib.Najib has denied any wrongdoing in both instances. Since the emergence of the scandal, Najib has fired the attorney general and used existing powers, including sedition and defamation laws, to charge opposition legislators and journalists.Critics of the proposed new law claim that it is deliberately defined in vague terms. The government says that courts will have have the final say.Last month, deputy communications minister Jailani Johari, said that any information about 1MDB that has not been verified by the (Malaysian) government “is deemed as fake news.” His boss, Salleh Said Keruak, this week partially retracted that. He said that simply mentioning the U.S. Department of Justice probe into 1MDB and U.S. attempts to recover $1.7 billion of assets, would not be an offense, but linking Najib to a specific dollar amount could be.“Malaysia’s ‘fake news’ bill is a blatant attempt by the government to prevent any and all news that it doesn’t like, whether about corruption or elections,” said Brad Adams, Asia director of NGO, Human Rights Watch. “The proposed law uses draconian penalties and broad language in an audacious and unprecedented effort to control discussion of Malaysia worldwide.”Malaysia is scheduled to hold general elections no later than August this year, though Najib could call for them to be held earlier. Malaysia has been governed by the same Barisan Nasional coalition since independence in 1957. Najib’s UMNO party is the largest component of the coalition, but it lost the popular vote at the 2013 election. ×Actors Reveal Their Favorite Disney PrincessesSeveral actors, like Daisy Ridley, Awkwafina, Jeff Goldblum and Gina Rodriguez, reveal their favorite Disney princesses.

The bill is expected to be approved by the Senate later this week and take effect shortly.The legislation provides for a fines of up to $123,000 and six-year jail sentences for anyone publishing or disseminating misleading information. It makes online service providers liable for third party content. And it has extra-territorial reach as fake news generated outside the country is subject to criminal penalty if either the country of Malaysia or Malaysian citizens are affected.Opposition lawmakers argued that the law was an assault on free speech and is intended to silence critics of the government in an election year.

Celebrate With a Slice Crypto Geeks Its Bitcoin Pizza Day

first_img Free Webinar | Sept. 9: The Entrepreneur’s Playbook for Going Global 3 min read May 21, 2014 Register Now »center_img Growing a business sometimes requires thinking outside the box. Grab a slice, Bitcoin lovers. It’s that time of year again. Time to celebrate Bitcoin Pizza Day!  Delivery or DiGiorno? Nah, make it Papa John’s. It seems more fitting for this particular celebration. Let’s all raise a slice to Jacksonville, Fla., software programmer Laszlo Hanyecz.Four years ago today, Hanyecz laid claim to the ultimate crypto-nerd first. The early Bitcoin adopter forked over 10,000 bitcoins that he mined on his computer for about $25 worth of Papa John’s pizzas. Two hot, scrumptious pizza pies, to be exact.Internet legend has it that it was the first time anyone ever purchased anything using Bitcoin. And it was pizza. Go figure.Related: Nerds Rejoice. Google Glass and Bitcoin, Together at Last.That was back on May 22, 2010, when Bitcoin wasn’t worth jack — not a fraction (0.003) of a penny — not even as much as the gooey good cheese that topped the now legendary pizzas.With the price of a single BTC nearing $490 today, those same pies would cost upwards of $5 million worth of Bitcoin today. Yeah, we know Papa John’s promises “Better Ingredients. Better Pizza.” But, come on. It’s not that special.Naturally, the first thing Hanyecz did after ordering it was brag about it on BitcoinTalk, an early and still-popular Bitcoin discussion forum, even posting a mouthwatering pic of the pizzas for proof. “It wasn’t like Bitcoins had any value back then, so the idea of trading them for a pizza was incredibly cool,” Hanyecz later told The New York Times tech columnist Nick Bilton. “No one knew it was going to get so big. I’d say I ended up on top.”Now, before you kick off your pizza party, let’s take a quick trip down memory lane. Bite first into Hanyecz’s historic BitcoinTalk pizza post, in which he describes his hankering for a pizza delivery paid in BTC:I’ll pay 10,000 bitcoins for a couple of pizzas.. like maybe 2 large ones so I have some left over for the next day.  I like having left over pizza to nibble on later.  You can make the pizza yourself and bring it to my house or order it for me from a delivery place, but what I’m aiming for is getting food delivered in exchange for bitcoins where I don’t have to order or prepare it myself, kind of like ordering a ‘breakfast platter’ at a hotel or something, they just bring you something to eat and you’re happy!If you’re interested please let me know and we can work out a dealThanks,LaszloIf you happen to have some Bitcoin pizza money to spare, you can order yours now from PizzaForCoins.com, though it won’t be as cool as when Hanyecz ordered his back in the day, before Bitcoin went boom.   Related: 6 Crazy Things You Can Buy With Bitcoin (Paradise Included)last_img read more

China criticizes US force strengthening in Asia

first_img Top Stories 5 things to look for when selecting an ophthalmologist Comments   Share   BEIJING (AP) – In its latest account of national defense efforts, China said Tuesday that the United States is destabilizing the Asia-Pacific region by strengthening its military alliances and sending more ships, planes, and troops to the area.The U.S. policy known as the “pivot” to Asia runs counter to regional trends and “frequently makes the situation tenser,” the Defense Ministry said in its report on the state of China’s defense posture and armed forces. Mary Coyle ice cream to reopen in central Phoenix Former Arizona Rep. Don Shooter shows health improvement Construction begins on Chandler hospital expansion project “Certain efforts made to highlight the military agenda, enhance military deployment and also strengthen alliances are not in line with the calling of the times and are not conducive to the upholding of peace and stability in the region,” spokesman Yang Yujun told reporters at a news conference marking the report’s release.“We hope that the relevant parties would do more to enhance the mutual trust between countries in the region and contribute to peace and stability,” Yang said.China has consistently criticized Washington’s deployment of additional ships and personnel to Asia, along with increasing cooperation both with treaty partners, including Japan, South Korea and the Philippines, as well other countries such as Vietnam that aren’t traditional allies.The U.S. is winding down its fighting in Afghanistan and calls the restructuring a natural reallocation of resources to the world’s most economically dynamic region.Beijing, however, sees it as specifically designed to contain China’s diplomatic, military, and economic rise, and has sought to reassure Asian nations that China poses no threat to them. Despite that, China’s fast-growing military and increasingly firm assertions of its territorial claims have concerned many countries, pushing them to seek stronger relations with the U.S., the region’s traditional military superpower.center_img Sponsored Stories Bottoms up! Enjoy a cold one for International Beer Day In its report, the Defense Ministry again sought to assuage concerns about its more than 500 percent increase in defense spending over the past 14 years. China’s defense budget is now the second largest in the world after the U.S., allowing it to acquire everything from better submarines and missiles to state-of-the-art fighters, aircraft carriers and electronic warfare systems, and helping spawn an arms race across Asia.Much of the report was devoted to the military’s contribution to U.N. peacekeeping efforts and disaster relief, portraying the People’s Liberation Army as a force for regional and global stability.Yet it also asserted the PLA’s role as a guarantor of China’s core interests, vowing to tolerate no violation of those.“‘We will not attack unless we are attacked, but we will surely counterattack if attacked. Following this principle, China will resolutely take all necessary measures to safeguard its national sovereignty and territorial integrity,” the report said.(Copyright 2013 The Associated Press.

China has also been angered by what it sees as U.S. support for its opponents in disputes with Japan, the Philippines and others over territory in the East China and South China seas.“China views the U.S. actions as proving it is biased against it,” scholar Qian Liwei wrote in the official English-language China Daily on Tuesday.“It will take time and patience to convince China that it isn’t the target of the U.S.’s rebalancing,” wrote Qian, an associated research fellow at the China Institutes of Contemporary International Relations, a think tank affiliated with the Ministry of State Security, China’s main intelligence agency. 5 ways to recognize low testosteronelast_img read more

The 5 Takeaways from the Coyotes introduction of

first_img The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impact – / 16 Top Stories Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires Foote started 15 games and recorded 84 combined tackles, while also being a leader on the defense. He is now retired and coaching the Cardinals inside linebackers.That has led us to the third year of the Keim reign, and he continues to show that magic touch when it comes to those sneaky one-year signings with loads of potential.The list this year is as long as ever and includes, sixth-year linebacker Sean Weatherspoon, sixth-year tight end Jermaine Gresham, eighth-year running back Chris Johnson, ninth-year linebacker LaMarr Woodley, ninth-year center Lyle Sendelien and 12th-year defensive tackle Cory Redding.Obviously, it is way too early to evaluate the 2015 veteran class of one-year signings for Keim.Weatherspoon and Johnson have barely been on the field as both are out with injuries, while the rest are all listed as back-ups on the team’s depth chart.Even if none of those guys crack the first-team line-up, the depth they provide gives the Cardinals one of the deepest teams in the NFL.Keim quickly has solidified himself as one of the brightest minds in the league, and with a strategy that has yet to fail him, the Cardinals are a hot destination for veteran players looking to not only revive their careers, but also be on a Super Bowl contending team.center_img When something is working well, simply keep it going.It’s a strategy that Arizona Cardinals general manager Steve Keim has seemingly stuck with since taking over the reins in 2013.That strategy is sign veteran players coming off poor seasons or injury-riddled ones to one-year deals.The hope is that the player will be motivated to get back on the field or have a chip on their shoulder to prove he can still play at a high caliber, while the Cardinals get the benefit of signing them on a team-valued deal. Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling Keim’s magic touch has helped stock the roster with depth year after year, while also being proactive in plugging holes and leaks that may pop up during the season.In 2013, Keim’s first at the helm, he signed fifth-year running back Rashard Mendenhall, eighth-year offensive lineman Eric Winston and 10th-year veterans Karlos Dansby and Yeremiah Bell to one-year team-friendly deals.All four signings proved to be gold, with the group combining to start 63 of a 64 games. Dansby was an integral part of that defense, recording a career-best 114 individual tackles and turned in his comeback season into a lucrative contract with the Cleveland Browns.Bell and Mendenhall both retired after the 2013 season, but not before pacing their respective positions, while Winson started all 16 games at right tackle.Keim’s next coup of one-year guys was just as successful the next year, with a haul featuring ninth-year cornerback Antonio Cromartie, 11th-year defensive tackle Tommy Kelly and 13th-year linebacker Larry Foote.Cromartie started all 16 games at corner opposite Patrick Peterson, helping the pass defense limit teams to just 18.7 points per game last year, good for 5th-lowest in the NFL.
