WADA was Not Equipped to Handle Size of Russian Doping Scandal: Craig Reedie

Follow News18.com on Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, Telegram, TikTok and on YouTube, and stay in the know with what’s happening in the world around you – in real time. Katowice: Outgoing World Anti-Doping Agency president Craig Reedie said on Tuesday the scale and size of the Russian doping scandal that erupted in 2015 had overwhelmed his organisation at the time.Speaking at the World Conference on doping in sport, Reedie said the Russian doping affair that emerged ahead of the 2016 Rio de Janeiro Olympics and saw the involvement of a vast number of athletes, coaches and officials was the biggest challenge WADA had faced in its 20-year existence. “The worst case of system failure in my time as president of WADA or in the entire time of the anti-doping movement is Russia,” Reedie told the conference.He said the level of cheating was “unprecedented,” leaving WADA under mounting pressure to work for all clean athletes as the Russian anti-doping agency (RUSADA) was declared non-compliant.”What it (scandal) taught us when it erupted was that we were not equipped to deal with such a large-scale programme,” Reedie said.RUSADA was suspended after the 2015 WADA report found evidence of state-sponsored doping in Russian sport and the country was barred from the Rio de Janeiro Olympics the following year.All Russian athletes also competed as independents at the 2018 Pyeongchang Winter Olympics.RUSADA’s suspension was lifted in September 2018 amid strong criticism as WADA gradually got access to key Russian athletes’ data from the Russian lab.But in September WADA said it had again opened compliance proceedings against RUSADA after finding “inconsistencies” in the vast bank of historical testing data finally handed over in January.That means RUSADA are again at risk of being declared non-compliant and thus putting Russia’s participation at the Tokyo Olympics next year at risk.Reedie did not say when a decision on this matter will be taken.”Clearly we have all faced pressures to deal with the Russian situation effectively,” said Reedie, who will be replaced by Poland’s sports minister Witold Banka on Jan. 1.”Athletes expect us in WADA to step up the fight. They expect the rules to be enforced. 2020 tokyo olympicscraig reedieDopingOlympics First Published: November 5, 2019, 4:08 PM ISTlast_img read more

$23.5 Million Upgrading of Bellevue Hospital

first_imgPatients and staff at the Bellevue Hospital in Kingston are benefitting from the recent upgrading and refurbishing of the facility at a cost of approximately $23.5 million. The lion’s share of the funds, $22 million, went towards the comprehensive overhaul of the kitchen, to create the Department of Dietetics and Nutrition, which boasts state-of-the-art amenities. The works included the repair and water proofing of the roof; complete electrical rewiring; replacement of the plumping system; reconfiguration of the steam system; re-meshing of the windows; retiling of the floors and walls; painting; rodents and insect proofing; construction of garbage disposal system and chemical areas; repairing of all major equipment, including cold storage facilities, stove and chill system; as well as the upgrading of the management of the food waste system. The remaining $1.5 million was used to purchase a new dental chair for the Dental Health Unit. At a ceremony held on Thursday, May 16, on the grounds of the 150-year old hospital located on Windward Road, Health Minister, Hon. Dr. Fenton Ferguson, said that the rehabilitation works were well-needed. “You can appreciate that some of the infrastructure at the Bellevue Hospital would need significant repair and overhaul, given the age of the facility,” he stated. He further noted that from “time to time we will have to do comprehensive repairs of buildings and other infrastructure and in some cases total replacement”. Dr. Ferguson informed that a second chair and well-needed equipment were also donated to the Dental Health Unit by Dr. Roy Streete, a visiting dental surgeon from the United States. The unit is expected to be fully functional by June 1 when a full time dentist is to come on board. With the opening of the unit, patients and staff will be able to access dental health services from Monday to Friday. Chief Executive Officer of the hospital, David Dobson, noted that along with the upgrading, critical staffing gaps have been filled and a comprehensive training programme designed and executed to facilitate the preparation of staff. The training dubbed: ‘Bellevue Employee Empowerment Programme (BEEP),’ caters to the development of hospital staff in the use of the new Department of Dietetics and Nutrition and the equipment.  The Bellevue Hospital, which was built in 1861, has an in-patient population of approximately 800, with a staff complement of 650.

Premier Dexter Responds To Economic Advisory Panel Report

first_img The panel also recommends that government not balance the budget until 2012-13. According to the panel, balancing the budget too soon would slow economic recovery in Nova Scotia and destabilize public services. “I believe the advice from the panel on balancing the budget too soon is sound,” said Premier Dexter. “We have information now that no one had six months ago, and I recognize that we cannot balance the budget next year. However what matters now is that we make the right choices based on this information. Promoting recovery and ensuring the stability of public services must serve as guidelines for the speed at which the budget is balanced.” Premier Dexter noted that he remains optimistic about Nova Scotia’s future. “I am optimistic that our province will overcome this difficult challenge and seize this moment as an opportunity to re-shape our future,” the premier said. “Government will get Nova Scotia back on a sustainable path and create a province where people can live, work and raise their families.” Premier Darrell Dexter, today, Nov. 16, responded to the Economic Advisory Panel report that indicated government will have to make tough choices to restore the province to a solid, balanced fiscal standing. “Government will restore the sound fiscal foundation needed to deliver important government services like health and education, but it will not happen overnight and will require us to make some very tough decisions over the next three to four years,” said Premier Dexter. The Economic Panel laid out three methods to address the financial situation in Nova Scotia: raising taxes; cutting spending; and spurring economic growth. Premier Dexter said the approach to address the financial situation in Nova Scotia must be fair, balanced and careful not to rely on any one method. Government will initiate these panel recommendations: Create a Premier’s Council on the Economy by asking business, labour and voluntary sector leaders to participate. Specific terms of reference for the council will be developed and recruitment will take place shortly thereafter. Develop a multi-year fiscal plan that will balance the budget at the earliest possible time, because government is committed to living within its means. Spur economic growth, particularly through training and education. Government will promote investment that increases secure jobs, a skilled and dedicated work force and a strong business climate. Engage Nova Scotians through a comprehensive consultation process to help people understand the nature and scope of the financial problem. In the next few weeks, government will travel the province asking Nova Scotians questions that will help inform policy and guide government decisions on spending.last_img read more

Better access crucial for Gazas recovery and reconstruction – top UN official

1 May 2009The top United Nations envoy to the Middle East has urged better access for essential items to enter Gaza, stressing that the humanitarian and early recovery situation there nearly four months after the end of Israel’s military offensive is “alarming” and shows no real progress. During a visit to Gaza yesterday, UN Special Coordinator for the Middle East Peace Process Robert Serry was informed of the difficulties facing families, businesses and civic groups as they try to move forward after the offensive, which Israel launched on 27 December with the stated aim of ending rocket attacks by Hamas and other groups.At least 1,300 Palestinians were killed in the three-week operation and some 5,300 wounded, while homes, schools, hospitals and marketplaces were reduced to rubble.“The situation is really alarming – fulfilling the humanitarian needs and beginning early recovery is impossible without the adequate entry of fuel, cash and materials needed for the repairs of damaged or destroyed homes, schools, clinics and other urgent infrastructure repairs,” stated Mr. Serry. “Better access is crucial.”UN humanitarian chief John Holmes stressed the same point yesterday, noting that while donors have pledged money, the flow of goods is “wholly inadequate and reconstruction is almost impossible.” Roughly 75 per cent of Gaza’s 1.5 million residents require assistance, but even the most essential imports are subject to intense limitations by Israeli authorities, he pointed out in an opinion piece published in the European Voice (Brussels).Mr. Serry added that “time is passing and there is no real progress.” Noting that tens of thousands of Gazans whose homes were hit in the conflict now face a sweltering summer in unacceptable conditions without proper shelter, he stressed the urgent need to begin rebuilding and repairing homes. The envoy also warned that the underlying political issues need to be addressed. “In the absence of real progress on issues like Palestinian reconciliation, open crossings, secure borders and prisoner exchanges, the potential for renewed violence is ever present.“That would be disastrous for people in Gaza as well as Southern Israel. We’ve got to change this dynamic, with political progress, and with practical results on the ground,” he stated. read more

Oilsands through the hourglass Defining moments that shaped an economic juggernaut

The Canadian oilsands industry is beset with environmental concerns and low crude prices. Nonetheless, production is expected to grow. The Canadian Association of Petroleum Producers estimates that oilsands output will reach 3.7 million barrels per day in 2030 from 2.4 million bpd last year.Some key dates in the history of the oilsands:1719: A Cree man named Wa-Pa-Su presents an oilsands sample for trade at the Hudson’s Bay Company to Henry Kelsey, who was the first recorded European to see it.1923: Dr. Karl Clark of the Alberta Research Council develops a process that uses hot water to separate oil from oilsands, which he patents in 1928.1967: Philadelphia-based Sun Oil opens its $240-million Great Canadian Oil Sands project with an initial production capacity of 45,000 barrels per day.1974: The Alberta Oilsands Technology and Research Authority is formed to develop a way of recovering the 80 per cent of bitumen buried too deep for mining. The method is known as “in situ,” Latin for “in place.” The result was steam-assisted gravity drainage, known in industry parlance as SAGD, where steam is injected into a reservoir to warm the thick bitumen so that it can be pumped to the surface.1978: Syncrude Canada opens a mining operation using large draglines and conveyor belt systems to excavate and pile oilsands deposits.1993: Suncor Energy adopts more effective and cost-efficient truck and shovel technology to replace less reliable bucket-wheel excavator and conveyor belt systems, resulting in the loss of about 400 jobs.2001: After several years of operating as a pilot project, Foster Creek becomes the first commercial oilsands project to use SAGD technology. It is now owned by Cenovus Energy.2004: Alberta oilsands production reaches one million bpd.2008: Actress Neve Campbell tours the oilsands, becoming one of the first celebrities to speak out against the industry . Since then, a number of high-profile figures including director James Cameron, anti-apartheid leader Desmond Tutu, singer Neil Young and actor Leonardo DiCaprio have made similar trips to draw attention to environmental concerns.2012: Oilsands production from thermal in situ wells and other non-mining methods reaches 960,000 bpd, surpassing output from strip mines at 930,000 for the first time.(Sources: Oil Sands Discovery Centre, Suncor Energy, The Canadian Press) read more

Suspected arson attack in Paris kills 10

first_imgThis handout picture taken and released by the Paris firefighters brigade (BSPP) in the night of 5 February 2019 shows a fire in a building in Erlanger street in the 16th arrondissement in Paris, that killed 10 people. Photo: AFPAt least 10 people died and 30 were injured in an overnight blaze at an apartment block in Paris that police suspect was deliberately started by a female resident, officials and firefighters said Tuesday.The fire on the upper floors of the building in rue Erlanger in the upmarket 16th district of southwest Paris is the most deadly in the capital since 2005.Dramatic video footage from the scene showed flames leaping out of top floor windows and firemen climbing narrow ladders to rescue terrified residents, some dressed only in pyjamas, from the top of the eight-storey block.Described by one rescue worker as a “scene of incredible violence”, the blaze left at least 10 people dead and around 30 others injured — six of them firefighters, the fire service said.”One person who lives in the building has been arrested. She’s a 40-year-old woman who has prior psychological problems,” Paris prosecutor Remy Heitz said at the scene, where the smell of smoke still hung in the air several hours after the blaze was extinguished.An investigation has been opened into the criminal charge of causing death by arson amid fears that the toll could climb further as investigators search the burned-out top floors.Tributes were paid to rescue workers who saved around 50 people on Monday night, some of whom had climbed on to the roofs of adjacent buildings to escape the inferno.The fire started at about 1:00am (0000 GMT) and was only brought under control more than five hours later by around 200 firefighters backed by 100 fire engines.”At windows, people were yelling ‘Help, help!’ everyone was panicking,” witness Humberto Ribas, who works in a building opposite, told AFP.Another local, who gave his name as Nicolas, said he initially thought a fight had broken out when he heard a woman screaming.”She was screaming, screaming and we went outside and the building was already on fire,” he said.Inner courtyardBut rescue efforts were initially hampered by the fact that the blaze was ripping through apartments inside an inner courtyard, with no vehicle access.”The firemen had just arrived but what was amazing was that they were completely impotent,” Nicolas told AFP.”They had the trucks, the big ladders, but they couldn’t do anything.”Only once they had fitted extenders to their equipment, which needed to be carried into the courtyard were the firefighters able to begin rescue operations.Several times the blaze appeared to have been brought under control before flaring up again, another witness told AFP.”The building was very difficult to access,” Daniele Giazzi, mayor of the 16th district, told BFM television as she paid tribute to the rescue workers who toiled through the night.Several local residents said the fire started after a dispute between neighbours in the block, which was built in the 1970s, unlike many of the older, classic Parisian buildings nearby.”It’s one of the possibilities being examined by investigators,” deputy mayor of Paris Emmanuel Gregoire told RTL radio.Sports stadiumsThe wealthy neighbourhood is home to several private schools and lies on the edge of the vast Bois de Boulogne park.It is close to the stadium of football club Paris Saint-Germain, the Parc des Princes, and the Roland Garros complex used for the French Open tennis tournament.”France is waking up with emotion after the fire on rue Erlanger in Paris,” President Emmanuel Macron tweeted.”Thoughts for the victims. Thank you to the firefighters whose courage helped save many lives.”The fire is the most deadly in Paris since 2005 when an arson attack at a building in the southeast 13th district killed 17 people, 14 of them children.The worst fire in Paris since World War II was in April of the same year when 24 people perished at a building used for temporary accommodation after a fight between two residents.Tuesday’s blaze follows a powerful gas explosion last month that killed four people in the city’s central 9th district and is likely to renew debate about fire safety in the City of Light.Two adjacent buildings were also evacuated as a precaution and local officials were on site to help find housing for residents who could not return home.Standing at the police cordon, Jose Emilien was anxiously seeking news of his cousin and nephew who live on the sixth floor of the building.”I called both of them,” the 46-year-old builder told AFP.”They’re not picking up and I don’t have any news.”last_img read more

Clarín Keylor is a superhero and La Sele is our army

first_imgPHOTOS: Costa Rica clinches World Cup 2018 berth VIDEO: World Cup 2014 Retrospective! Related posts:World Cup 2018: Two Costa Rican fans travel to La Sele’s rival countries Serbia defeats Costa Rica 1-0 at the 2018 World Cup Costa Rica, Brazil battle rumors of tension and injury before high-stakes matchup Costa Rica fans descend on Saint Petersburg “Keylor Navas is flying again. Fast, astute, impeccable.”So begins a story in the Argentinean daily Clarín, headlined “Real Madrid found a superhero in Central America.” Author Waldermar Iglesias waxes eloquent about the Costa Rican superstar goalkeeper and then wanders into Costa Rican history.A sociologist quoted in the story argues that Costa Rica’s extraordinary passion for football has its roots in the country’s lack of an army. Keylor Navas and Real Madrid topped Manchester CIty 1-0 in the Champions League semifinals second leg at Santiago Bernabeu Stadium in Madrid to advance to the tournament final in 2016. Curto de la Torre/AFP“Keylor was born in Costa Rica. It sounds like the periphery of football, but that’s not true,” the story reads. “It’s one of the countries with the strongest passion for the sport. It’s all about a central question… that goes beyond the playing field: before the last World Cup, sociologist Sergio Villena Fiengo told this daily, ‘Costa Rica is a country that abolished its army in 1948 and had no war of independence as such… in this framework, the Men’s National Soccer Team is a ritualistic space in which, in some way, a ‘return of repressed militarism’ is produced.“‘Discussion of the team is full of warlike, epic rhetoric, with elements that emphasize masculinity and virility as well as the idea of ‘conquest,’” Iglesias told the daily. La Sele reached its highest heights at the 2014 World Cup, but has inspired Ticos for decades. Lindsay Fendt / The Tico TimesThe story also quotes Rafael Angel Calderón, who, as president in 1990 when Costa Rica sent its Men’s National Team to the World Cup for the first time in history (with surprising success), said that “This is the most marvelous thing that has ever happened in Costa Rican history… the greatest of all God’s gifts to us.” Costa Rica’s Marco Ureña (R) celebrates with teammates after scoring against Mexico during their 2018 World Cup football qualifier match at the National Stadium. AFP PHOTO / Carlos GONZALEZ“The plane that carried [the team upon its return] flew at the lowest level all over the country until it ran out of gas. Not even the sick stayed inside. In the streets, the party lasted much longer than the next morning,” Iglesias writes. “It’s not magical realism. It’s Costa Rican soccer in its purest state. Navas, the superhero of Real Madrid, will be in this World Cup as well… in search of new epic journeys for La Sele, that weaponless army of his beloved Costa Rica.”Read the original story here.Stay tuned for our World Cup-themed print edition, coming in June.
