Women’s Soccer Rallies for 2-1 Win over UMKC in Home Opener

first_img North Dakota State 9/3/2017 – 1 p.m. Full Schedule Roster Rodgers, who nearly scored a goal in the first half off a free kick, just missed her second goal later in the second half as her second free kick of the night went left of the goal.

Son of woman who died after ambulance delay issues stark warning

first_imgThe son of a woman who died after waiting for almost an hour has warned others that the same could happen to them if they don’t act.Brendan Porter’s mother Maura, aged 70,  died after she was struck by a car on her way home from mass in Carndonagh in December 2013.Mr Porter spoke out after an inquest heard how a 71-year-old Letterkenny woman also died after she was waiting an hour for an ambulance to reach her. Margaret Callaghan died after the ambulance took one hour to travel just a mile to her home at Mountaintop in Letterkenny.Mr Porter fumed “People think this may never affect them but this is happening all over the country and other people are going to die because of it.The late Maura Porter“We have campaigned for six years since my mother died because of an ambulance delay and nothing has changed.“People need to lobby the Government and their local TDs now and not wait until their loved ones die waiting for an ambulance as we did,” he said. The circumstances surrounding the deaths of both Mrs Porter and Mrs Callaghan are remarkably similar.Both died as a result of a delay in ambulances being deployed from Letterkenny University Hospital because of “off-load delays.”Mrs Porter lived 63kms from Letterkenny and despite being rushed to Altnagelvin Hospital in Derry, the mother-of-two died.Because of protocol, ambulances cannot off-load patients until they are ready to be accepted by the hospital.On the night Mrs Callaghan died in January 2018, there were two ambulances parked at the Accident and Emergency Department at Letterkenny University Hospital waiting to admit patients. One ambulance waited outside for six and a half hours while the other waited for three and half hours, Letterkenny Coroner’s Court was told.Mr Porter added that not only does Ireland’s ambulance service needs to be overhauled but new methods to get critically-ill people to hospital on time must be introduced.Photo Brian McDaid“In Dublin you have some chance if you have an emergency situation but in rural Ireland you are completely fighting against the odds. Places like Donegal, Mayo and Cork all have so many inaccessible places.“Of course the current ambulance response times need to be looked at and that includes the off-load delays and why they are still happening. “In England, they often use small helicopters and I think we need to try something like that.“I know it’s a cost but what cost do we put on a life,” he said.Son of woman who died after ambulance delay issues stark warning was last modified: September 2nd, 2019 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:ambulanceBrendan PorterdonegalinquestMargaret CallaghanMaura Porteroff-load delaylast_img read more

10 months agoTottenham captain Lloris wants Cup revenge on Arsenal

first_imgTottenham captain Lloris wants Cup revenge on Arsenalby Paul Vegas10 months agoSend to a friendShare the loveTottenham captain Hugo Lloris says they’re out for revenge in the Carabao Cup quarterfinals this week at Arsenal.Spurs return to the Emirates Stadium a little over two weeks since they lost a fiery encounter 4-2 in the Premier League, where there were issues both on and off the pitch. “Maybe it’s the good thing that we lost the Premier League game a few weeks ago because it is more motivation for us,” Lloris said after Spurs stayed in the title race with a 1-0 win over Burnley on Saturday.”There is no more bad feeling than when you get a defeat. You always try to analyse and make things that we will not repeat again. It is another opportunity and we will try our best to go through.”Every game that you lose it hurts, but of course when you lead 2-1, it’s true that Arsenal is playing very well this season and it is a difficult team to beat but I think we have the quality to do it.”It is important to take every competition seriously, whatever the competition is.”Of course there is priority in the season but it is a League Cup game and if you go through there is a semi-final and a good chance.”And then it is a derby so it is easier to prepare for because there always excitement and enjoyment to play that type of game.” About the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your saylast_img read more

Newly appointed Minister to the Science, Energy and Technology portfolio, Hon. Fayval Williams, says the first order of business will be promoting good governance across the Ministry.Mrs. Williams said she will be guided in this regard by the new procedures approved by Cabinet in the selection of Boards and in the procurement process.The guidelines are in keeping with the Administration’s undertaking to further strengthen the corporate governance framework of statutory bodies in order to improve accountability and the transparency of operations.“Right now, what the Jamaican people want is for their hope and trust to be restored in this organisation (the Ministry and its agencies), so that is first,” she said in a JIS News interview following the ceremonial opening of Parliament on February 14.“We (including the new Permanent Secretary) will go in and begin the process of restoring their trust and confidence in these institutions,” she continued.Mrs. Williams said the Government will be forging ahead with the compulsory acquisition of Petrojam.On Tuesday (February 12), Prime Minister, the Most Hon.

Equifax faces growing scrutiny as CAA says thousands may be impacted

first_imgTORONTO – Equifax Canada is facing intensifying calls for transparency on its massive cyberhack as the Canadian Automobile Association informs thousands of its members that their data may have been compromised and frustrated consumers ask questions about why they’re being treated worse than their U.S. counterparts.CAA said Thursday it partnered with Equifax on its identity protection program and is notifying the roughly 10,000 members who participated that they may have had sensitive data divulged in the security breach made public last week.The auto organization’s program required members to register their personal information such as credit cards, banking information and email address, with the option of providing a social insurance number.It appears that the sensitive information of CAA members who signed up for the identity protection program was stored with Equifax USA, said Ian Jack, CAA managing director of communications and government relations.The company has shied away from public comment, however Equifax Canada’s customer service agents have told callers that only Canadians who have had dealings in the United States are likely to have had their information compromised in the data breach. That includes those who have lived, worked or applied for credit south of the border.“Equifax has not been forthcoming with information to us despite our repeated requests,” Jack said.The identity protection program began in March 2015 and was terminated on July 1, weeks before Equifax discovered the hack on July 29.Jack said the CAA has been trying since the first reports of the Equifax breach surfaced to determine if it affects any of its approximately 10,000 members who signed up for the program. It is also writing to Canada’s privacy commissioner to express concern and ask that they push Equifax to provide more information to Canadians.“We value our members’ privacy. Our contract with Equifax explicitly said customer data would be governed by Canada’s privacy law, PIPEDA,” Jack said.“We chose them as a partner because of their then high reputation. CAA did not handle or retain any of the information provided to Equifax.”Equifax Canada did not respond to requests Thursday from The Canadian Press.The development comes as Canadians who are worried they might be victims of the Equifax Inc. voice concern they are being treated as an afterthought in the wake of one of the largest online data breaches in history.Equifax Inc. said last Thursday that a security breach occurred over the summer that compromised the private information of up to 143 million Americans, along with a undisclosed number of Canadians.But the company has not provided further details, including how many Canadians may have been exposed.The company has provided consumers in the U.S. with a website that shows whether they are at risk of identity theft and is allowing them to monitor their files for free for one year.But the online database does not provide Canadians with accurate information because it is based on U.S. social security numbers. The Equifax Canada website says it costs $19.95 per month for the monitoring service.Toronto lawyer Frances Macklin said she is frustrated that Canadians are more in the dark than U.S. consumers and questioned why there isn’t a dedicated portal for consumers north of the border.“We’re equally affected. Just because I don’t have a social security number, I don’t get access to information,” said the partner at Gowlings law firm. “I’m completely bewildered by that.”Communications expert Warren Weeks believes Equifax could not have handled this issue in a worse way.“We’re talking about the gateway to all of your financial information in your life,” said Weeks, owner of communications firm Weeks Media Group.“And Canadians, in specific, don’t know if they’ve been targeted or not or they’ve been impacted or not? I think in 2017, that’s unacceptable.”However, he added, it’s common for a Canadian subsidiary to be told to keep tight-lipped by its U.S. parent when issues arise.Equifax may also be under more regulatory pressure in the U.S. than in Canada, said Tamir Israel, a staff lawyer with the Canadian Internet Policy and Public Interest Clinic in Ottawa.The U.S. has federal regulations in place that govern credit reporting companies such as Equifax, which outline both proper business practices and identity theft, Israel said.“If they don’t deal with this issue appropriately, [that law] is likely to get expanded to address whatever shortcomings they had.”In Canada, credit reporting agencies are regulated by individual provinces and territories, he added.“Because of that mismatch, it falls through the cracks a little.”last_img read more

Alberta to fight for full value of its natural gas

first_imgEDMONTON, A.B. – The Province of Alberta is fighting for the full value of its natural gas.The Alberta Government announced that is creating a Liquefied Natural Gas Investment Team to work directly with the industry on reducing barriers for securing final investment decisions on export projects that will increase the value of natural gas resources.This announcement comes after a key recommendation of Alberta’s Natural Gas Advisory Panel, appointed in May 2018 to provide advice to the Minister of Energy on short and medium-term actions Alberta can take to address persistently undervalued natural gas and extreme price volatility due to transmission, storage and market access challenges. Alberta Minister of Energy, Margaret McCuaig-Boyd, says the Province needed to come up with a way of raising the value of Alberta’s oil and natural gas.“Whether we’re talking about oil or natural gas, the details are different but the story is the same. Albertans are getting pennies on the dollar because we can’t get our resources to international markets, and our biggest customer has become our biggest competitor. We can’t sit on the fence like previous governments did. We must take the bull by the horns and fight for the full value of our natural gas.”The Investment Team will consist of five members that will advise and work with the industry on getting more value for natural gas.The Investment Team is part of a broader made-in-Alberta oil and gas strategy that includes the aggressive expansion of energy upgrading opportunities within the province as the government takes short-term action to address the oil price differential crisis.last_img read more
