DECISION IN MARIE FLEMING ‘RIGHT TO DIE’ CASE EXPECTED TODAY

first_imgThe Supreme Court will rule today on whether Multiple sclerosis (MS) sufferer Marie Fleming can end her life with assistance.Ms Fleming, who is originally from Lifford, took the legal challenge so she can die peacefully at home with her partner Tom Curran without him being convicted and jailed.The former university lecturer took her appeal to the seven-judge court after losing a legal challenge at the High Court in Dublin. Mr Curran admitted he is prepared for the worst and revealed his partner will consider taking her case to Europe if defeated again.“We are not expecting them to overturn the judgment of the High Court,” he said.“We will just have to wait and see, and we will have to look at it from there.“Europe is an option, it depends on the judgment. If there’s something in it that will allow is to go further, we will. “But I’m preparing us for the worst and I’m assuming it will go against us,” added the 65-year-old carer.Ms Fleming (59) can only move her head, lives in constant pain and cannot swallow.She suffers choking sessions which she fears will eventually kill her, the court was told during a four-day hearing in February and March.It is not yet known whether she is well enough to attend the hearing, but Mr Curran will be there supported by his partner’s children Corrinna and Simon and his son David.Ms Fleming, who is in the final stages of MS, is not asking for someone to kill her, but wants assistance in putting a mask to her face or fitting a cannula in her arm, which she would activate by shaking her head or blowing into.

Reinforced Bruins win again

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREWalnut’s Malik Khouzam voted Southern California Boys Athlete of the Week But with 39 seconds left, Kyle Kruip scored to draw Foothill within one. The Bruins’ win was the fifth in a row against Foothill. Wilson beat Foothill (14-5) in the S&R Sports Cup Tournament a couple weeks ago and beat the team three times last season, including in the CIF Southern Section Division I Finals. On Tuesday, Foothill jumped out to a 3-2 lead, but the teams were tied at 6 at halftime Charles Wright, who created three man-up opportunities, two of which resulted in penalty shots for Wilson, scored three goals, and Scott LaBounty scored twice and Scott Huntley added a goal of his own for the Bruins, who moved up to No. 2 in the CIF-SS Division I poll. “I think we just had too many turnovers,” Foothill coach Jim Brumm said. “They do a really good job of capitalizing when you do.” “We dropped off JW. He is a strong player,” Wilson senior attacker Kyle Wootten said. “We just stuck to our game plan and played hard all four quarters and came out with a win. We have been working on our counter all week. The counterattack is what we’ve been lacking.” Sagehorn scored one of his four goals on a power play 5:51 into the fourth quarter to give Wilson (15-3) a 10-8 lead. The return of Matt Sagehorn and Anthony Artukovich from competing with the U.S. junior national team in Argentina went well for Wilson High on Tuesday night at Tustin High. The Bruins’ box defense contained the Knights’ JW Krumphloz, their pressure on the perimeter forced quite a few turnovers, and the team converted power-play opportunities, penalty shots and scored off the counterattack and in the post to edge Foothill, 10-9. center_img 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Photo story: Brahmaputra is now dumping more and more silt, making farmlands infertile

first_imgCrossing a full Brahmaputra from Dibrugarh to Dhemaji North Bank in Assam by ferry takes an hour, but now requires more than double that time as the river takes a meandering path and is heavily silted. People still prefer the ferry because the land route is more than 400 km long. They are waiting for the Bogibeel bridge, which will cut short the travel time to just half an hour.Also read: Understanding the Brahmaputra and the annual flooding in AssamThe Brahmaputra and its tributaries are known for changing course ever so often, leaving behind a heavily silted river bed. People have adapted to this behaviour of the rivers. They grow paddy and vegetables along their banks when the flood waters recede and move home when the rivers change course. But in recent years, hydroelectric projects built upstream in Arunachal Pradesh have added to the amount of siltation.Deforestation has not helped either. Neither has the unusually heavy rainfall influenced by climate change resulting in all the tributaries dumping silt. Downstream from Dhemaji, Lakhimpur district has witnessed some serious flooding and siltation. During the monsoon, the Ranganadi hydroelectric dam in Arunachal Pradesh releases large volumes of water from the dam site, inundating large tracts of agricultural land in Lakhimpur. And once the flood waters recede, much of the land is covered by sand rendering it useless for cultivation.It is in middle Assam that the Brahmaputra dumps the most silt. Here, Morigaon district is severely affected by floods with the river bisecting it. At places, the the river is more than three km wide. Because of siltation, the river is divided into several parts. People now wade through this part of the river, unthinkable in the past years.last_img read more
