Juliette gives a little back to Limerick breast cancer clinic

It was then that the cancer was detected.“I lived a healthy lifestyle and enjoyed life. I’m very fit and active, so I wasn’t expecting the devastating bombshell that landed that day. I remember being very angry. It was like a dream. I thought I was on candid camera,” Juliette recalls.“I had to have six doses of chemo and the worst day for me was when I lost my hair. Like every woman, I love my hair. I would wash it and straighten it every day. I cut it short when it started to come out, so that was a very dark moment for me,” she said.Juliette is hugely philosophical about her battle with cancer and the loss of her breast. She sees it as a traumatic experience that ultimately gave her back her life.“When they took the breast it felt like the cancer was gone at that point. For my children I felt grateful and tried to remain positive. You have to look forward. I said to myself I am going to get better to make sure I’m around for my children. It was devastating but life goes on,” she said.A member of Southside Wheely Wheelers cycling club in Kilmallock, Juliette is a keen cyclist and runner.Last year the ‘Giving a Little Back’ event raised €3,000 for the new Symptomatic Breast Clinic at the University Hospital Limerick.“It would be great if we could raise the same amount or more this year. All the money will go to the Breast Clinic in the Regional Hospital and I really can’t commend all the doctors and nurses and even attendants enough out there enough,” she concluded.Sunday’s event includes a 60km cycle and 8km run/walk/cycle.

I’m happy to introduce this bill with Representative Capuano to implement the systemic changes and Congressional oversight needed to ensure that the notoriously opaque Federal Reserve is held accountable to our constituents.”The bill introduced in the Senate last month, also called the Bailout Prevention Act, was sponsored by Elizabeth Warren (D-Massachusetts) and David Vitter (R-Louisiana).”America’s largest financial institutions received unprecedented assistance from the Federal Reserve during the crisis, much of it unknown to the Congress or public at the time,” Capuano said. “While the Dodd-Frank Act brought some reforms, the perception lingers that some financial institutions are simply too big to fail and could be bailed out again. This perception has consequences favoring the biggest players in the financial system. We may not know today what the next crisis will look like, but we all have a right to know the full extent of measures that may be taken to prevent a crisis. This legislation will help protect taxpayer dollars by increasing oversight of the Federal Reserve’s emergency lending powers and bringing much needed transparency to the process.” Sign up for DS News Daily The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Bailouts Federal Reserve Too Big to Fail U.S. House of Representatives 2015-06-04 Brian Honea June 4, 2015 1,048 Views in Daily Dose, Featured, Government, News Home / Daily Dose / Bipartisan Bill Introduced In Congress Aimed At Preventing Fed Bailouts Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Brian Honea’s writing and editing career spans nearly two decades across many forms of media.

On Aug 25, a bench headed by Justice Arun Mishra had reserved orders on the sentence in the contempt case over two tweets of Bhushan, after he refused to apologize.During the hearing, Justice Arun Mishra expressed disappointment at Bhushan issuing a supplementary statement to justify his tweets after asserting his disinclination to tender apology.”Tells us, what is wrong in using the word ‘apology’? What is wrong in seeking apology? Will that be reflection of the guilty? Apology is a magical word, which can heal many things. I am talking generally and not about Prashant. You will go to the category of Mahatma Ganghi, if you apologise. Gandhiji used to do that. If you have hurt anybody, you must apply balm. One should not feel belittled by that”, observed Justice Mishra while reserving orders on sentence.Senior Advocate Rajeev Dhavan, Bhushan’s counsel, submitted that he was not seeking the mercy of the court and was seeking “judicial statesmanship”.Dhavan also submitted that punishing Bhushan will make him a “martyr”.The Attorney General for India, K K Venugopal, requested the bench to not punish Bhushan and to let him off after a reprimand or a warning. On the last day for tendering an apology, Bhushan filed a statement in SC stating that an apology would be a “contempt of his conscience”. He stressed that as an officer of the court, he has a duty to “speak up” when he believes that the Judicial institution is deviating from its sterling record. “Therefore I expressed myself in good faith, not to malign the Supreme Court or any particular Chief Justice, but to offer constructive criticism so that the court can arrest any drift away from its long-standing role as a guardian of the Constitution and custodian of peoples’ rights,” he said. “My tweets represented this bonafide belief that I continue to hold. Public expression of these beliefs was I believe, in line with my higher obligations as a citizen and a loyal officer of this court. Therefore, an apology for expression of these beliefs, conditional or unconditional, would be insincere”, his statement read. He stressed that an apology cannot be a “mere incantation” but has to be made sincerely. “This is especially so when I have made the statements bonafide and pleaded truths with full details, which have not been dealt with by the Court. If I retract a statement before this court that I otherwise believe to be true or offer an insincere apology, that in my eyes would amount to the contempt of my conscience and of an institution that I hold in highest esteem,” the affidavit filed through Advocate Kamini Jaiswal read. He added, “I believe that the Supreme Court is the last bastion of hope for the protection of fundamental rights, the watchdog institutions and indeed for constitutional democracy itself. It has rightly been called the most powerful court in the democratic world, and often an exemplar for courts across the globe. Today in these troubling times, the hopes of the people of India vest in this Court to ensure the rule of law and the Constitution and not an untrammeled rule of the executive.” He said he read the SC order dated August 20 where he was asked to reconsider his statements with “deep regret” and responded thus “I have never stood on ceremony when it comes to offering an apology for any mistake or wrongdoing on my part. It has been a privilege for me to have served this institution and bring several important public interest causes before it. I live with the realization that I have received from this institution much more than I have had the opportunity to give it. I cannot but have the highest regard for the institution of the Supreme Court.” On August 14, a 3-judge bench of the Supreme Court had held Bhushan guilty of contempt of court for his tweets against the SC and the Chief Justices of India. During the hearing on the sentence held on August 20, Bhushan affirmed his comments and made a statement justifying his comments and expressed dismay at the Court verdict. “My tweets were nothing but a small attempt to discharge what I considered to be my highest duty at this juncture in the history of our republic. I did not tweet in a fit of absence mindedness. It would be insincere and contemptuous on my part to offer an apology for the tweets that expressed what was and continues to be my bonafide belief. Therefore, I can only humbly paraphrase what the father of the nation Mahatma Gandhi had said in his trial: I do not ask for mercy. I do not appeal to magnanimity. I am here, therefore, to cheerfully submit to any penalty that can lawfully be inflicted upon me for what the Court has determined to be an offence, and what appears to me to be the highest duty of a citizen.”, Bhushan said. The bench was not appreciative of the statement and asked Bhushan if he would like to reconsider it. The bench also asked Attorney General about granting time to Bhushan to reconsider the statement. AG agreed that time can be given to him. However, Bhushan stood by the statement and said that it was “well considered and well thought of”. He said that granting time “will not serve any purpose” as “it was unlikely” that he will change it. Nevertheless, the bench said that it will give him two or three days for him to reconsider the statement, and posted the matter for hearing on August 25.It was on July 22 that the bench headed by Justice Arun Mishra issued contempt notice to Bhushan in a suo moto case taken with respect to two of his tweets on judiciary and the Chief Justice of India.The bench, also including Justices B R Gavai and Krishna Murari, prima facie, observed that his tweets “have brought disrepute to the administration of justice and are capable of undermining the dignity and authority of the Supreme Court in general and the office of the Chief Justice of India in particular, in the eyes of general public”.Read the SC order issuing contempt notice to Prashant Bhushan @pbhushan1 taking cognizance of his tweets.

Germany postpones discussion on ‘Dutch-style’ pensions

first_imgBoth unions and the employers’ association said they were open for further talks, but rather on amendments to the existing tax and social contributions.The two areas have already been identified for review by the Ministry of Finance, which has commissioned the University of Würzburg to conduct a study.Results of this first-ever comprehensive research into effects and incentives from the current tax and social contributions regime are expected by year-end.The study is also one of the reasons the government has chosen to postpone further debates on how to increase participation in the second pillar.Postponing further debate on the industry-wide pension plans, also known as §17b, named after the legal paragraph in the law on occupational pensions (BetrAVG) they would have to be set down in, was also necessitated by the implementation of the EU’s pensions portability directive. The German government will present its amendments to the occupational pension fund law (BetrAVG) to implement the EU’s new legal framework for portability and mobility “at the end of next week or the week after”, according to Peter Görgen, head of the department for supplementary pensions at the BMAS.He confirmed at the conference the amendments would not discriminate between cross-border and domestic German migration.One of the most debated points had been the reduction of the vesting period from five years in Germany to three years, as per the new EU standard.But the BMAS has now softened the blow for employers as the new legal framework in Germany will only apply to contracts negotiated after 2018.This way, the first transfers under the new vesting period can only take place in 2021 at the earliest, Görgen said.Meanwhile, Asmussen confirmed that debates on opting-out models would be among the “other options” for increasing participation in the second pillar to be discussed in future.However, Ingo Kramer, president of the Federation of German Employers (BDA), said any pressure to offer occupational pensions would be “clearly the wrong step” and a distraction from necessary amendments to existing regulation.Overall, delegates at the conference said the debate on occupational pensions had been given a fresh spark by the BMAS’s proposal, even though most rejected the current draft.Thomas Richter, chief executive at the German Investment Funds Association BVI, said: “For a decade, nobody wanted to talk about occupational pensions.”He said the government’s commitment had now finally changed that, and that he was “happy the bird is finally up in the air”.“At the beginning,” he added, “it does not matter whether it flies in the right direction.” Further debate on the German government’s proposal to introduce industry-wide pension plans has been postponed until 2016 after opposition from social partners.The delay was confirmed by Jörg Asmussen, under-secretary in the Ministry of Labour and Social Affairs (BMAS) during a speech at the Handelsblatt conference in Berlin.He stressed the ministry thought it was “worthwhile to continue to discuss its proposal” but added that “no draft will be ready to be introduced to the legislative procedures before 2016”.The BMAS’s plans for new industry-wide pension funds, or Tarifpläne, were rejected last week by the social partners for increasing the system’s complexity and introducing further problems “without solving existing ones”.last_img read more

Povetkin stuns Dillian Whyte with sensational KO

first_imgDillian Whyte’s world title dream was left in tatters as Alexander Povetkin inflicted a second career defeat on him with a sensational fifth-round knock-out.Whyte had dominated the opening four rounds and twice sent the 40-year-old Russian to the canvas. But Povetkin turned the fight on its head with a ferocious left uppercut that ended the fight in an instant.“I didn’t feel I would finish the fight like this but I was pretty confident in the fourth round,” Povetkin told Sky Sports.“I went down twice but it was OK. It was not too much damage.“I was watching his fights and I see that he was missing uppercuts from the left and from the right.“All my training I trained for those shots and it was definitely one of the best punches of my career.” Whyte, the WBC’s number one contender for over two years, knew he could not afford any mistakes behind closed doors at Matchroom HQ in Essex.The prize of meeting the winner of the trilogy fight between current champion Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder was on the line.There was a sedate start to the fight as Whyte began to establish his impressive jab and Povetkin struggled to make an impression.Povetkin was left off balance by a strong right in the third and Whyte troubled the Russian further as he worked well to the body.Whyte was getting more confident by the round and Povetkin took a count after being dropped to the floor by a right-left combination early in the fourth. Povetkin was looking out of his depth and he was sent tumbling to the canvas again by a short left uppercut close to the bell.It looked as if the end was near for the Russian but he landed a perfect punch from nowhere that left Whyte on the floor for some moments, although he was able to eventually get to his feet.Fury was quick to comment on Povetkin’s victory, writing on his official Twitter account: “40 & proud,” while IBF world featherweight champion Josh Warrington added: “Wow! crazy this boxing ya know….”Whyte’s promoter Eddie Hearn, who confirmed there was a rematch clause, which he will exercise before the end of the year, said: “I can’t quite believe it to be honest. When the punch landed I felt I was in some dream.RelatedPosts Dillian Whyte to face Povetkin in November rematch Fury wants Anthony Joshua in 2021 Dillian Whyte wants Povetkin rematch “The fight was over virtually after two heavy knockdowns, but this is the drama of the sport we love.“This is the drama of heavyweight boxing and one punch can change everything.”Tags: Dillian WhyteKOPovetkinlast_img read more

Wilshere can’t wait to return

first_img During Wilshere’s absence, the Gunners have surged back up to second place in the Premier League table following eight successive victories. Competition in the Arsenal starting XI is now fierce, with the likes of Theo Walcott, whose contract talks remain on the agenda, and Danny Welbeck often having to watch on from the bench. Gunners boss Arsene Wenger, though, is expected to rotate his side at Wembley, with captain Mikel Arteta, midfielder Abou Diaby and full-back Mathieu Debuchy all hoping to be involved again. Wilshere feels the competition for places can only have a positive impact on the squad. “Training here with the quality and intensity, that is what I need coming back from injury,” Wilshere said on Arsenal Player. “You can play as much as you want in the under-21s, but you cannot get that intensity of the Premier League. “In training here, the little eight aside and keep balls is top level, and that is what I need. “Everyone looks forward to the training sessions, it is short and sharp, everyone is fighting for a position (in the team) and you can really tell that.” Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere cannot wait to throw himself back into first-team action – which could well come at Wembley in Saturday’s FA Cup semi-final against Reading. Wilshere continued: “We have added real quality, world-class players to the squad and the main thing here is the team ethic. “You can see that we have a great atmosphere around, everyone wants to work for one another and we go into every game knowing we can create chances if we stay strong defensively and win the ball higher up.” Walcott’s last appearance was coming off the bench in the 2-0 Champions League win in Monaco on March 17, which saw the Gunners bow out on away goals. The 26-year-old is out of contract at the end of the 2015-16 season, and speculation has already begun over his future. Last month, Walcott – who in January 2013 signed a three-and-a-half-year deal, just six months prior to the end of his existing agreement – took to Twitter to insist there was no bust-up and he was focusing on “doing my best for Arsenal.” Wenger has admitted progress has been slower than he would have liked, but the club remain optimistic a positive outcome with the England forward will be reached. Wojciech Szczesny is, meanwhile, again expected to be in back in goal for the FA Cup tie, after losing his Premier League place to David Ospina. Just like 12 months ago, defender Per Mertesacker insists Arsenal cannot be complacent against the Sky Bet Championship side, despite an impressive run of 16 wins from the past 18 matches “We felt [pressure] last season a lot, because no one expected us to lose, for Wigan to go through and that will be the case again,” the German said on the club’s official website. “We are more prepared, but you are never perfectly prepared. “There will be different situations and the team will have to grow in the match again, we will have to face the expectations and pressure. “But with our level of confidence and with the team in good shape at the moment, I am very confident. “The energy is really great in the team, we have a fantastic squad and the most important thing is that feeling.” German Serge Gnabry is another player on the comeback trail from injury, playing in the Under-21s 1-0 defeat to Reading on Monday. However, it remains to be seen when midfielder Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain will be available after battling first a hamstring problem and now an inflamed groin. Press Association The England international made another outing for the Under-21s earlier this week, co-incidentally in a game with the Royals, as he stepped up his recovery from minor corrective ankle surgery. Wilshere has not featured since the end of November following ankle ligament damage suffered against Manchester United, but was an unused substitute for the Barclays Premier League game at Crystal Palace on February 21 before it was decided to remove some studs on the pins inserted from a previous procedure which were causing discomfort. last_img read more

Lewis runs for 129 in 1st start, Pitt wins 38-3

first_imgIMPRESSIVE START—Freshman running back Dion Lewis rushed for 129 yards and two touchdowns and caught a pass for another touchdown in the Pitt’s 38-3 win over Youngstown State. One of Pitt’s unanswered questions going into the season was whether it could quickly replace running back LeSean McCoy, who left for the NFL after rushing for 2,816 yards and scoring 35 touchdowns in two seasons. Only former Heisman Trophy winner Tony Dorsett was as productive at Pitt during his freshman and sophomore seasons.For at least one game, Lewis—a freshman who was playing prep school football in New Jersey a year ago—was a more than adequate replacement. He scored on a 16-yard run on his fifth college carry, then set up his own 1-yard touchdown run early in the second quarter with gains of 28 and 25 yards on successive carries against a Penguins defense overmatched by Pitt’s size and speed.Later in the quarter, Lewis scored on a 3-yard swing pass from Stull. Lewis sat out most of the second half, carrying five times for minus-3 yards after having 15 carries for 132 yards at halftime.Stull, who slumped badly during the second half of last season after getting a concussion against Rutgers, was booed on his first incompletion and had only 44 yards passing at halftime but finished 11 of 16 for 123 yards and an interception.Tino Sunseri, a redshirt freshman who pushed Stull for the starting job during preseason camp, found Jonathan Baldwin on a 42-yard completion immediately after replacing Stull in the third quarter and later hooked up with Aundre Wright on a 6-yard scoring pass play. Sunseri was 5 of 8 for 80 yards as the Panthers outgained the Penguins 390-159.Youngstown State generated little offense except for Stephen Blose’s 48-yard field goal in the second quarter. Brandon Summers was 11 of 22 for 113 yards and two interceptions while Donald Jones, who had five TD catches in his final four games last season, was held to four catches for 34 yards.The game was only the second between schools located about 60 miles apart. The Panthers beat the Penguins 41-0 in a 2005 opener. PITTSBURGH (AP)—Dion Lewis scored three touchdowns by halftime while running for 129 yards in his first college start, and Pittsburgh showed off a balanced offense while cruising to a season-opening 38-3 victory over Youngstown State on Saturday. Pitt made certain there was no repeat of last season’s 27-17 opening day loss to Bowling Green that ranks among the biggest upsets in school history, taking a 21-3 lead at halftime. Not that the opponent was as good—Youngstown State lost eight of its first 10 while going 4-8 last season and hasn’t scored a touchdown in its last five games against Football Bowl Subdivision opponents.last_img read more
